Many Events

Referred a client
God’s favour through my ex-mentor
Grateful for the opportunity
Being transparent
In my interest yet willing to learn
Willing to reduce price
Awaiting for green light to start

Own husband chooses to
Accede to the new maid’s request
Sending her back to the agent
Notion of him pretend to forget
Irritates me off
Signaling me he does it in purpose
Impatiently reminding today’s class
He points out my tone so I restrain it

Seeking God towards the nearby church
Preaching in loving God
Through loving others
What is God doing?
Appreciate mum’s help to send my son home
Rush to attend biblical married couple course
Meet a sister and take the same bus
Reach the church building

In the course
Disappointed with self
Not realizing the nudge from my Lord
Before anything happens
The worse I feel to disappoint my Lord
Feel like a fool
For being caring too much
Own pride is gone

Awaken of own’s strengths and mistakes
Admit to say
I don’t want to follow my parents footsteps
1 Corinthians 10:12-14 enables me
Summing myself
I do get affected by others easily
Own dad’s words echo “don’t be scared easily”
The more I understand my son

Ending the class admitting to my cell members
I do get affected by others easily
They respond wanting me to speak up
But I choose not to talk about it
Deep reason
Unable to express the right words instantly
Giving others the wrong meaning
Awaiting God’s green light

Today’s sermon to affirm the Lord’s guidance in my life and my belief in Jesus in the verses, “love God” and “love your neighbour as yourself”. However, still no confirmation on, “treat others as the way you want to be treated”.

My ex-mentor introduces a client to me, speaks on my behalf, asks an increase of $100 for me. Appreciate her to accept my honest feedback interested yet willing to learn.

PL, sister in Christ, looks so happy that her new maid comes. I feel so happy. And I find it funny because my husband sends the new maid to the agency. She asks my budget on my affordability to eat at food court or restaurant. Though I wish to go to hawker centre, I relent to accompany her to restaurant. Because I don’t want her to feel hot. Surprisingly, the lunch at Jack’s Place cost around $16 including tax for each person. She knows where to find affordable yet good food.

J, our cell member, joins us at Jack’s place then we attend biblical leadership course for married couples together. After the class, she helps to find a more affordable office wear.

A surprise. I see a stack of papers with the maid’s profile. Then mum informs me that my son tells his dad that he still can’t take care of himself because he is still young. Therefore, he is choosing a new maid. Among all maids, one is good.

My brother tells mum about what happen at home. Before I return home, my husband calls his mother with room door opened wide. He speaks loudly to tell his mum no need to come here and he is under frustration.

My brother informs mum on my husband’s doing. He opens the room door opened wide and calls his mother.

“What is he lying about?” That’s my instant response. My room door is widely opened. He speaks loudly to let others hear. His mum asks in mandarin, “Do you need me to go?” He responds, “No need to come. I’m under frustration.” A sudden nudge in me. Seems that my mother in law is coming.

My son often runs into my mum’s room during brushing teeth. He is driving me crazy. I slightly raise my voice him, “You don’t like me?! Do you?” Inside I lose hope.

“No,” is his reply. That baffles me.

A blog post photo flashes in my mind. She sleeps with her baby. Therefore, I go to my son’s bed and hug him before he sleeps. For the first time, he wants me to sleep beside him. Upon knowing I apply hot muscle joint pain paste, he wants me to return to my bed.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Executable Idea Submission Day

Today is the
Green initiative submission day
Sense the
Cooperative spirit
God’s favour
Through my supervisor
The son God blesses
Anticipate me to return home


Inspiration On: Monday, 11 April 2016

CMF approaches me on the green day initiative submission. Thank God for the sudden edit the wording for the submission. I speak up to write my name rather than the two colleagues in charge of the writing. Because I’m the one who writes the coding. Or else there is going to be confusion. And I speak up that I hope to express it correctly. My supervisor assures the people can help in the write up for green day initiative submissions.

After I edit my write up, she emails to the person in charge and a carbon copy to me. Then she also attaches the PowerPoint about the green day initiative. I’m surprised that she and the macro programmer are in the champion team. When I clarify with her, she mentions that the person before her receives the champion award.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Idea and Partial Execution

New partial executed ideas
Automate word document letters
Out of excel

Skeleton is completed
Seeking help for
The right keywords to
Auto-generate all record
Perfecting the final beauty

The programmer colleagues
Become a radio podcaster
Blast it to another colleague

Intention to keep
Quiet and do it secretly
Are found out
Needing help and guidance too


Inspiration On: Tuesday, 5 April 2016

The macro programmer comes to the branch office. I get so excited and ask him questions. So I ask him on my idea on automated letter with VBA. Because I am stuck in certain keyword. He points me to submit my partial executed idea to green initiative. Then the company will assign me another programmer. He can help me too. If I complete the whole coding, it is too late to submit to green initiative. CMF is in charge of it. So I bug her twice because I need help. He shocks me to tell another colleague about my automation idea and execution. Oh no! I don’t want to let so many people know. Yesterday, my supervisor found out about it.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Disrupt

Miscellaneous tasks
Work, family and work
Seeds of ideas are birthing

Endless piling jobs
Repetitive tasks
Birthing ideas are boiling

Thus
All these
Disrupt creative flow

Thus
Exhaustion 
Overwhelmed

Mental and physical fatigue 
Sip into my inner core
Leech my cheerfulness in life

All the projects I received, I do at home.  Noises at home are endless. Tasks at home are piling. The job from the client often gives tight deadlines – either submit by night or next morning. Recently, I feel burnt out and depressed. Upon reference, I do personality test. ISFJ is the result from answering the questions. All the explanation reflects true of myself. No wonder I flourish with given long timeline but overwhelmed with tight deadline and sudden changes. Glad to vent out my frustrations. Wish you all have good days and thank you for all your time to read my poetry.

Budding Idea

Budding idea sprouts
Growth disrupted
Greedy hearts and minds
Plucked out of its root
For their self-interests
For their own goals
Justifying their motives and actions with
Honey like words
Refusing to pay their dues

The news of ideas being stolen is heartbreaking especially the artists’ life. Though the form of drawings can be protected by law, the idea can easily be stolen. Such respect for the idea generator is not given. Therefore, I likened it to a budding flower Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Creativity

How do you define creativity?
Seems that
It is something done no one ever think of.

Fresh ideas implemented.
As time pass by
It is no longer considered creative.
It is considered norm.
It becomes obsolete.

Another idea keeps on
Popping out and implemented
Then obsolete again.

Just like a mobile phone.
In olden days, there are no such things as mobile phone.
But now, mobile phone is considered common.

Other kinds of new gadgets
Always come and go
The cycle always continues.

This inspiration comes as I compare today’s society with olden days especially during my young times living without mobile phone. The reason to give the title “Creativity” is in my young times, the creation of mobile phone is considered creative. Wherever you go, it is so easy to communicate with people without looking for a telephone booth.
