Doughnut day!

I'm in a very confused state right now; but I came up with a brilliant idea. (or so I think)

Every time I'm extremely sad or having a bad day, I've decided to make someone else's day.

So today I went hunting and bought dozens of doughnuts to my colleagues. For no reason.

That's how shitty my life is right now.

So today has been filled with updates of the recent earthquake in Ache, Indonesia that was felt in many other places including kuala lumpur..

That made me wonder, in situations like this, when you need to evacuate the building immediately, what would be the one thing that you must carry with you? Or do you drop everything and leave?

It happened to me twice.. Once in Paris and once recently in Perth.. Not earthquake but was forced to evacuate hotel due to fire warning.. Thank god nothing bad happened, but at both times, I didn't know what to take with me? I hate it when I have to prioritize my things.. Especially when I am living by my luggage, everything seem equally important.. That's normal right? Or is there a obvious answer to this?

My life. Period.

I don't know at what exact age life turns out to be so difficult. But I know I am at that point right now.

I have a good job (at least pays me well), I have a family that loves me (way too much at times) and great bunch of friends (at least two of them).

Yet, I wouldn't mind even for a second, if it were to end today, this moment. If god decides to grant me a wish today, this will be it. I want it to end.

I do know everyone at every stage of life have their own set of problems. I also read somewhere that says you only face problems that you are capable of solving and etc.

But I honestly do not know how to handle this combination of problems: 30-Single-Female-Indian-Living in with parents.

Job hopping sucks!!

Finding a job is not easy...
Finding the perfect job is near impossible !!

After doing a half hearted job search starting early 2011 and thru out last year, i can say that i no longer feel my worth. And i have started being less picky starting this year..

And what did i land? ONE interview after countless applications and rejection letters. ~sigh
lilo did warn me that job market is tough out there and she was right...

I always thought in IT line, moving jobs would be easier because of the high turnovers. Apparently... Not  :P
Starting last month, i have actually started to apply and look for roles rather than just wait for head hunters to call me (and they do weekly).

Each time i apply to a company or get calls from head hunters, i always feel that tinge of excitement.
But each time, i am disappointed :(
Yesterday was no different... I applied to a company for a role and based on the requirement written, i met all of 'em.
Lo and behold, today i received a reply stating a generic:
Thank you for your interest in the position of -------- Technical Expert. We have thoroughly reviewed your resume. While your qualifications are impressive, we regret that we are unable to extend an offer to you as the competition has been very keen.

....And this is not even me changing role to a different product or scope!! *disbelief* 

Can anyone tell me what 'competition has been very keen' means? WTF

Double bummer :(

Oh and here's a nice read:

p/s: still cant believe i got rejected before an interview for something that i do for a living and i have been with the same employer for 5 years and counting!!

is so unpredictable...

One of my ex colleague passed away tragically yesterday.. She's 33 this year, a mother of a 2 year old girl and was 4 months pregnant..

I wasn't close to her, very briefly knew her.. Yet, I can't help feeling sad for her lost.. The image of her daughter keeps running in my head.. what will happen to this beautiful girl? How will she even understand that her mother is gone, just like that.. And her husband, will his life ever be the same again?

Sometimes we have a plan B for everything, but not for our own life..
