Journey 2 8.5

I'm home! just to update some pictures for my last cruise..


Rock church, didnt get in due to the queue..

Warnemunde again, some events going on




Tallin..



Stockholm..





and last european food..denmark danish pastry..ahaha



I got to say i left at pretty much the right time..thank God i doesnt have to stay longer..
new hgm, new fnb director, new matred = new things = adjustment

i cant imagine people that have 6 months contract and is complaining, what more us whom are having 8-9 months contract..die lor?

i can only thank God for the strength that he provides, definately i wont be able to push on with my own bare strength..
even up to the moment im on a plane, from a middle seat, people asked if i want to change to their aisle seat..*sure!!*..more than happy to..muahaa

what i've learned from cruising?
bad stuff *kidding*..
but no joke, ofcos there are good and bad stuff that you learned..but im glad, and i hope, im still the me..if i ever changed, i hope its a good change..

1. money can buy time - literally
2. you just gotta be selfish sometimes to survive (survival skill)
3. trying to be perfect/thinking too much/doing too much - making yourself tired
4. seems like ure too loud or too quiet, is not a good thing
5. being asians, feels like ure not as good as the others in some people's eyes
6. i can think no more now..hahaha

now what is my next step? same old answer, i dont know..
now, what should i catch up on? tvb drama? tvb variety? running man? one piece? oh godddd..

Dead tired this month..also a frustrated month..
So frustrated that I can only sigh out loud, and let it flow..

Tired of being too independent..and not willing to portray my 'weak side'..
Too much mistakes this month too..sigh..hugeeeeeee mistake..sigh
Some recoverable, some can't be recovered..
One recent mistake caused a complain..=\
Perhaps it's also a sign that the time of going home is near..tend to be not in shape..excusessss..

Full station of Japanese..damn! Y didn't I learn some useful jap words..
Looks like watching one piece doesn't help hahaha

And my skin is getting into a really bad condition..I donno why =(

And apparently I 'stole' someone's sales..but u know what? I don't careeee..
As long as I know what am I doing..
I'm pretty sure he'll be telling everyone he sees..lameee..
