I want to work towards having team work and verbal communication.

In a team, everyone is a leader, this means that everyone plays a vital role in contributing ideas and keeping the task at hand as first priority. If team work is not displayed, the team has already failed before they started thus I want to work towards being a team player.

In a team, verbal communication is also of utmost importance and if a person fails to communicate, ideas will get messy and no work will be achieved. I want to be able to communicate with my team members with ease such that my message will be resounding clearly in their minds with no confusion and work will be efficiently done.

ACRONYMS GALORE

CPF stands for Central Provident Fund.

I am interviewing my mother who is on the CPF scheme.

She says that CPF is good as it is a security for savings in our old age. It is also a forced saving implemented by the govt to ensure that we are self sufficient and independent to look after ourselves in our old age. It forces us to save and anytime when money is needed for housing, retirement, healthcare, there is a pool of funds we can make use of to offset our payments or bills. This will greatly reduce the stress of making payments. What my mother is looking forward to, is during her retirement, she can get a regular monthly payout form the govt to help her in her monthly expenditure. She feels that in this way, she can live life without worry during her retirement.

WHAT/WHERE TO EAT?

For sustainable seafood (Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)), halal certified & organic, I would go Parkway Parade’s Cold Storage Supermarket and get myself an Atlantic Cod which is MSC-certified, Halal-certified and as well as organic as the fishes are farmed and cook it with lemon zest and juice with a drizzle of garlic and butter. This meets the requirements of all my friends.

For delightful Halal certified food, I would bring my friends to Ayam Penyet President, an Indonesian restaurant, located at Kallang Wave Mall as the Smashed Fried Chicken (Ayam Penyet) is very succulent with mouth-watering chicken that melts in your mouth with “kriuk kriuk” which are the crispy things on the top of the chicken which gives it it’s famous taste and flavour. As for drinks, the Soda Gembira (Iced Soda with Milk) just bursts with flavour and you would be craving for more!

Here are a few photos of me eating at my FAVOURITE RESTAURANT 🙂

As you can see, I really do love the Ayam Penyet and the Soda Gembira!

As for a social enterprise eatery, I have chosen the famous 18 chefs as it gives ex-convicts a second chance at life by recruiting them into their workforce and letting their creativity run freely. 18 chefs was founded by an ex-convict, Benny Se Teo’ and he has given the same opportunity to those who want to turn their life around.benny-se-teo-2

There is a lunch meal where you get to ‘design your own dish to fit your taste’ from a variety of sauces and ingredients together with an ice lemon tea and a scoop of ice cream for the price of ONLY $6.40!!!!! WHAT A STEAL! (pun intended)

UNUSUAL OCCUPATIONS

The occupation I have chosen is a professional poker player. 

I chose this career as I really enjoy playing poker with my peers and I feel that poker is a really interesting “occupation”.

I would not mind taking up this career although the risks are really high as your “income” fluctuates and if you are not good at what you do, you would just might become bankrupt. However, I am considerably good at poker and I know how to hold a “poker face” *

To me, an ‘unusual’ job means something that challenges the social norm. It is something that when mentioned in a conversation would usually result in “eh what’s that” or “sustainable job meh?” or “that’s not a job” and it usually makes others either want to be you or want to stay away from you 🙂 ^

WE LEARN TO PLAY

I have supported the local arts before.

There was a Philharmonic Winds (probably the best band in SG) concert featuring local composers pieces in 24 October 2015 and it was free of charge!

philwinds-logo

The band was AMAZING and the pieces they played were really quite interesting as I am used to hearing famous composers like Satoshi Yagisawa, Bert Appermont & Philip Sparke and I know their style of pieces and how they like to compose a piece and hearing local composers was refreshing as it was a new tune in my head!

programme

It was a 2 hour concert and my ears could not stop bouncing around the concert hall as I heard wonderful melodic phrases as well as beautiful solos. It was an interesting experience and I would love to go for more concerts like these.

MADE IN SINGAPORE

The most interesting thing invented in Singapore to me is the Pink Dot as it is really ironic to see people expressing themselves in Singapore as Singaporeans HAVE NO EXPRESSION. In Singapore, it is “Government say, I do lor”. It has come to the point where Singaporeans are thought to not have a soul/life as they do as told and do not question the high authority or if they do, it is done quietly and then they get paranoid.

To see Singaporeans stand up and challenge the social norm really piqued my interest and this is why I chose this “invention”
