Nature In Australia

A bitch leech stole my blood while I was on a 5-hour mud-filled Uloola Fall Trail and Karloo Walking Track. It's true that every animal in Australia is out to get you...

And So We Meet in Taiwan

Since I'm often away from Singapore and haven't been able to meet small Winnie for the past three gatherings in Singapore, we decided to meet in Taiwan!

Today I Succeeded by Failing

It's a strange feeling I have.

As a manager, I, sometimes, feel like a mother.

Today, a team member gave me feedback on how she wants me to provide more direct support and help when she asks for it. She says if she will ask for direct help and if she did, she wants me to provide exactly what she needs.

I have pleasant strange mixed feelings.

On one hand, I feel like I'm have not been a good manager and didn't provide what exactly she needed.

On the other hand, I'm proud that there is physiological safety for my team member to trust me that I won't take the feedback personally and wants me to improve on how I can help her in the future.

I guess I succeeded by failing. :)

I Love My Work

Best time to go see Sakura in Tokyo is now. What makes it even better? It coincides with a work trip so it's a working holiday. Woo hoo!

And this is not even an April Fools' joke.

Sunny and Cold

Back at my favorite pretentious W Beijing hotel! And my dearest company is sponsoring this trip. Yay!

Weather report: 3 degrees and sunny do not go together in a sentence...

St Patrick's in Shanghai

So I got invited unexpectedly to a St Patrick's charity ball in Shanghai. As one would have guessed, I made the most of it and had such a blast, like I always do!  :)

Chinese People and Their Phones

While watching a B-grade movie with a trapped guy trying frantically to get the last call through to his dad before he drowns under a sinking car and his phone died, Mark commented that this will never happen to Chinese people because they always have a battery pack. ‪#‎truethat‬ #shanghaifun

Oh, Shanghai!

Oh Shanghai, how I've missed you so! Will you mind clearing the air pollution up a bit, just for a week? And while we're at it, can I request the same for the traffic? x
