Work Work Work

It's my 5th working day today and I am doing pretty good. Adapting to the working life here.

The environment here is friendly. However, everyone's just super busy since they have got a few projects going on. I have yet to do any serious work, mainly because the project I am supposed to help out is already in advanced stage. So I guess it's difficult for my boss to slot me in. But every now and then, he would asked my opinion and experience on how things were done in my previous taking of projects. But one thing I dislike about the new company is it's location. It's twice as far as my previous company. Just yesterday, it took me almost an hour to reach home. Not to mention the toll I have to pay. But I guess I just have to adapt lor.

So what am I doing now? Reading manuals and blogs. LOL! Nothing to do mah, mah read blogs lor. But mostly technical blogs on Linux lar. Coz I'll be working with Linux a lot.

Just got a call yesterday from an ex-colleague of mine, asking for some info. So I asked him how he's doing.

"We got a pay cut", he said sadly.

"What?!". I was quite shock really. "When?"

"Just after you left".

Wow! Talk about timing. I was lucky to bail early. If not, that would really affect my package during negotiation.

Got to get back to reading blogs work. Ta-ta!
