Work work work... Work work work

Too tired. Work had been just too tired after I got back from Taipei. Meetings, conference calls everyday with the new bosses; endless deadlines mixed with crazy logistic problems (yeah, they still exist). And to make it worst, Taipei had been spoiling me too much a week earlier with good food, exotic fruit drinks, pretty girls, and polite people - now I feel completely out of place in China and have trouble adapting to it's smoggy place. Good thing that next week my boss will be in Shanghai so I can bi7ch to him... ha ha, now I know how hard to manage people - I have to sooth everyones' feelings and find reasons for their complaints after recent merger changes, yet I have no one to complain to - somehow people in China are always requesting for more and more stuff, they tend to rush at things instead of building up foundation (maybe it's a work culture thing? or I'm too nice to them - anyways; today I was pissed and threw a fit to them, freaking everyone out which was good since I had undisturbed time to work on my deadlines). This weekend will be busy too, need to finish a project planning for Austin's review next Monday. Oh well, here's some pics reminding me of luckier times in Taipei... ^^

That's not just a chinese thing about asking more and more without building the foundamentals. I've seen sooooo many of these stuff as a TA...

Haha, as you all know - i rarely loose my cool, but because maybe it's that time of the month (JK JK, JK alright? ke ke) that I lost it :p Nah, it's these ppl complaining all da time about insignificant things that get on my nerves.

Hey. Dinos are quarantined in Toronto (in some you-know-where building), and they are not allowed out of the country... ha ha ha.

I agree it's not a ethnicity-related issue.. personality plays a big role in it.. people are sometimes difficult to deal with but as long as you don't say goodbye to your sanity. Happy B-day (Dino)!
