It has been quite some time, since I really blogged. Sharing my own personal thoughts, rather than merely sharing useful info (I hope it is useful) that I got from others.

This might have made my blog less personal. :(

Today, a good friend of mine was telling me that she preferred my previous blog at xanga, where I blogged on myself, rather than merely on information blog. I thought through and agreed. Yes, my blog has gotten so much more impersonal.

I'm not sure how much I could blog about myself, but I promise myself that I would try. At least share more on my personal thoughts on things, rather than just posting. But often, due to time factor, I just forward it out..

For this post, I would look back at my last 3 months of my life. Time flies. It has been almost 3 months since I joined JobStreet.com . It has been great fun working there, and I would say that it is very rewarding. Really enjoy the responsibility and trust given by the management and colleagues there. I would never imagine myself getting such opportunities to work on many interesting projects. Everyday is a very engaging day there.

I would definitely credit Accenture for giving me very good training for the past 2.5 years, so that I am able to do my work now. So, the hard work definitely comes to something. :)

Besides work, I would say that recently I do make quite a lot of good friends through P&G Business Challenge Week . Definitely meet quite a number of very sincere and friendly people there, and that definitely make me feel much more younger. Haha..

Olympic Games is coming, so definitely would like to hope that our national contingent of 33 athletes could really perform! The incentive of RM1 Million for Gold Medal and RM5,000 (if I don't remember wrongly) of monthly allowance throughout life, would be a great motivation!

This edition of Olympic Games, I would say that our badminton (Chong Wei and even Mew Choo) could stand a good chance, and of course, our cyclist (Azizul, Josiah etc) and also our archers. For the first time, we have 3 sports that our athletes have a fighting chance of securing medals. And taekwando has some outside chances too.

I would predict that we can return with 2 medals of any colour. That would be good, since in the history of Olympic Games, we only brought back 3 medals (1 bronze in 1992 and then 1 silver and 1 bronze in 1996, and we had dry spell for the last 2 edition.

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!

Actually, I love your Xanga blog more too because this blog has been inundated with updates or announcements for events and has become less personal. Personally, I would suggest you to create a spin-off and use the other blog to write more about your personal life. It is just my two cents.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Would try to strike a balance, and have both personal messages, as well as some announcements.

It would be good for me to have 2 separate blogs, but I think as of now, i might not be able to manage it yet.
