Has E@L taken the Oriental Rapture Express to... what is, this place? Heaven?

Ah no, it's merely the cheese-board for the free-flow champagne (only Moet) brunch at the Ritz-Carlton. Sigh. Life is tough.


However things took a slightly apocalyptic turn when someone came over from across the room. It was his new Japanese boss*, head of the division, his boss's boss to be exact. Don't get it wrong, he was fine, said hello, etc... He's a nice enough guy, but, you know, oops, one of the workers out at the Ritz?

E@L is now expecting a review of his contract tomorrow...

Does this also mean no "working from home" tomorrow**, or can he claim that he was taken up...


* had to txt our office manger to remind me of his name - we are talking my NEW boss.

Out to Tampines, it costs me $24 to get a taxi to work. Fuck that. Seriously. Fuck that.

No 30 minute MTR commute?

Walk to bustop + bus + MTR + walk to office = 65mins+.

Walking in either stinking hot temperature or stinking hot temperature + rain, either way soaked.

Taxi = 15mins straight up PIE
