Since this is my PERSONAL blog, I am allowed to rant right?

Well this is all about work. I shall not qoute my company name.

Recently things have been happening. Unhappy things. I shall not name it.

If you guys followed me on Twitter, you would've know that recently I have been feeling down and pretty upset about work. (If you haven't follow me on Twitter, DO IT NOW!)

Let me tell you the whole story.

When I first join this company, I signed the Letter of Appointment under Membership, but was posted to Coachbay.

Well, what we do at coachbay:

- when the bus arrives, we take down information.

- survey on bus arrival

- in-charge of a rest place for guest

After being there for about one and a half months, I request to transfer to Membership. Reason for transfer, I do not like working at Coachbay. Hot, stuffy and stuff.

After going into Membership, just nice, it is time for appraisal.

I, being such a perfectionist, wanting to win everything, was expecting a good appraisal. However, my manager, EFKW, gave mi a bad rating. Performance Level (PL) being best and PL1 worst. I got PL2, which in turn affected my bonus and increment. How can I, Alex Lee, be an under-average, under-performed worker?! I could not take it. Went to HR to express my unhapiness (they said if we think that the appraisal if unfair we can go to HR), they say will get back to me.

Five minutes later, my BELOVED MANAGER, EFKW, called and ask me if I went to HR about my appraisal. She said it is MANAGEMENT'S DECISION. Because I transfer to membership not long still got alot of things to learn. This I agree. Still, how can you compare me to someone who already in membership for so long?! This time I am going to keep my mouth shut!

After working in Memberhip for a year, they now want to transfer me back to Coachbay. At the place where I work, we need lisence given by the government to do things. I have got the lisence. There are so many people without lisence and yet they want to push me out. I am not gonna say I am an elite in Membership, but I know my stuff. In fact, I strongly believe that I performed much better than many. Yet this is happening to me.

After I know about the news of pushing me out. I immediately called manager and ask about the news. Then she pass the phone to my BELOVED MANAGER, EFKW! She said she also don't know about the new all she can do is to send email and ask. She said all these calmly. without feeling. No, she has feeling. Feeling of being disturbed by me. All these happened when I am on off.

Once I come back to work, I was deployed at Coachbay. Fast right. Great!

This is the reason I am feeling down. Still, I have to work. I am taking it better now though.

I went to ask EFKW again about th email. She said it is confirm that I will be going out. I probed why, she said it is the MANAGEMENT'S DECISION. Again?!

Does this company I work for really care for its employee.

I do work hard. Yet things happened.

My colleague even asked me "Alex, see, why you work so hard for?"

This is my thinking: If I HAVE to do some thing, why not just put in more effort to do that some thing to achieve better result.

In fact I got a hard time working with lazy people.

I am not going to fight to stay anymore. If they treasure me, they will change their mind or fight for me. It is not like I did not fight for myself. I did.

To whoever I offended to get this kinda retribution. You truly is a 小人.

Now, another round of appraisal.

Honstly, I think I deserve a better treatment. I deserve a better job.

I keep telling myself to endure and stay till after bonus! I WILL DO IT!

A Million Changes. One Company. Huat Ah!

P.S. don't ask me which copany I work for, find out yourself.

Real Steel Opens 6 Oct 2011


A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

“Real Steel” is directed by Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum” franchise and “Date Night”).
“Real Steel” is an action drama about a former boxer (Hugh Jackman) who, against all odds, gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams up with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train the perfect contender for the new high-tech sport of robot boxing.

Well, I had the opportunity to watch Real Steel's GALA Premiere. Yes~~ That means I got to watch it even before it was open. I must say it is a very good movie. Families, bring your children! They will love it. 

The have this "boxing ring" to promote the movie.

Well, since this is a GALA, all are not allowed to bring in electronic devices. Security checks are in placed.

Well, before the movie opens.

Go ahead to facebook and like "Real Steel Singapore" page! You can play the games! It is pretty fun.

You will also get to win premiums~~ YEEPEE~~

Before you start playing, you need to click "log on" to play. I suggest that you go to to read up or listen up before playing or while playing. All answers are found there! (wahlao, still need me to give clues!)

Use some brains because it ain't as easy as you think it would be! 

If using brain is not your thing, try this boxing one. Just follow the arrow and you will get AWESOME! This is like those music game, e.g. beatmania, just that you do not not have to follow music. If you too slow, then you will be busted!

Oh.. one of the mission is to build this paper model thingy.

If you like models, maybe you will like this.

Real Steel FTW!
