I love spicy you see, so spicy my jaw goes numb, until sweat trickles down my frow, until i feel the heat in my tummy, until my already fat lips doubles in size.

That was why the doctor diagnose the pangs in my tummy as stomach ulcers today. I do not know what emotions to prescribe to. I was not sure if i should be fearful or hopeful that this would subside. I suppose the medication will determine this.

This revelation equates to cutbacks on my adored Kim Chi, Curries, Orange Juice and my favourite Sze Chuan Chinese restaurant.

Dealing with disappointment.

Yanking his scarf closer to his throat, he glanced at the screen only to read 10 minutes more to the arrival of his train. He was seated on the cold metal bench alone in the windy and isolated subway, accompanied only by the sound of a distant train and his insufferable thoughts. He brought his focus back to the computer that rested on his lap and began to type every thing he could recall that was reminiscent of the night.

The contention of his train of thought was directed to disappointment. Let him rephrase that, it was not just the disappointment that he had to deal with, but the bleak prospect and the fact that it was a savannah, blighed and devoid of any promise, where fulfilment and happiness were remotely possible or attainable.

He has had many encounters with the disappointment anomaly. Overtime, those disappoints has dissipated in his memory. Tonight however was cataclysmic in regurgitating everything he has experienced into his subconscious state. It was a cruel ratification to the truth.

It was late; it was a time in the night where he would have normally been in the warmth and comfort of home. But he was here churning over the days events that have unfolded. It was not a good day for him.

How many more of this could he endure? The debilitating effect this has on his hopes has been disarming and arresting. He has run out of avenues of hope. He is lost; he has reached a dead end.

Where could he find...

Friday was the final day of our two week long SDF Training. During this period, our graduate group bonded and overcame a substantial amount of hurdles against roadblocks that we faced together in the program. I warmed up to individuals who i already decided i did not like on orientation day and i made friends with individuals who were the most unlikely of possibilities. Deep down, i knew we would hardly cross paths again as each of us took a different route.

I am fortunate however to have become fast friends with two people of the group and have discovered that three of us will be working on the exact same project.

Ben Hill Launch Party

Monday, July 09, 2007


I was first acquainted with this movie in 1998 during one of my Chinese school sessions. It was a pivotal time that spurned in me a greater passion for Classical Chinese cooking and has not waned ever since.

The movie is called 飲食男女 and was directed by Ang Lee, famously known for directing Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. The actor is the late Sihung Lung.

Below is a short clip of the movie that i have watched numerous times.

We have been rapped in intense training the past few days that will extend until the end of next week. The sheer quality of the managers and Seniority that imparted their experiences and knowledge has piqued in us a shit load of motivation and inspiration. Fifteen new Analyst with a verocious appetite for a hands on experience to show them what we got to offer.

The past few days and days yet to come has been a harrowing interim for each of us as we gradually ascertain as to what assignments we shall be appointed to. Slowly, one by one each of us has been discreetly vacuumed into our own very different projects. So today was the precipice of my experience at Accenture. After the close of business as we made our way for drinks, i received an unexpectant call. It was a woman with a heavy American accent who was inviting me to join her team with her client. I realised at that instant that i have finally been appointed a project! The feeling, although not as intense was reminiscent of those calls you get informing you of a job offer. This was going to be my first ever project working with a client that is in the top 10 biggest companies in Australia.

I am excited but all the same calculating in my capabilities and proficiencies, monitoring my confidence (or over confidence) at every step of the way.
