It left me in the war
But I tried everything here
I am done with my part"

Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift."

30 Jun 2014 - Strange-rs

One of the easiest ways to improve your networking ability and your social life is to develop the skill of talking to strangers. Well, depends in situations. Not weird ones.

We're trained as children to fear strangers, don't ever take sweets when offered (which is truly good for safety reasons, am I right?) but most people carry this fear into adulthood where it does more harm than good. Yknow? It becomes a constraint on the number of people you can actually meet and interact with. You get stuck in a small box, only open to creating new relationships through people you already know. Mostly, through mutual friends. If you already know a lot of people, this can work all right, but it limits you to meeting people who are generally like you. If you are new to an area and don't have many friends, the fear of talking to strangers is absolutely crippling.

Fortunately, developing the skill of talking to strangers is easy. Once you get started the immense benefits and excitement it brings will encourage you to keep going. Thou sometimes you'll feel awkward at first, you'll make it through! Sometimes life will change, and you'll somehow be happy or, life goes on as what it was before. In modern society this simply isn't true. Most people are friendly and perfectly open to conversing with you. It just takes a little bit of effort to cross the stranger's barrier. Each person is an incredible learning opportunity. What they tell you about themselves, how they live and interact with the world. There is a wealth information waiting to be tapped. Sometimes, a few pointers from other people might just help you out in life. After all I've just said, just remember to look after yourselves around them strangers.

It's a beautiful world out there.

It boils down to three things:
1: Understanding the benefits of talking to strangers.
2: Knowing how to deal with the occasional rejection or unpleasant weird encounter.
3: Breaking down your fear through practice.

The world is full of complainers. I do, complain, a lot too. But the fact is, nothing comes with a guarantee. I don't care if you're Steven Gerrard, President of the United States or Man of the Year, something can all go wrong. But go ahead, complain, tell your problems to your neighbor, ask for help and watch them fly. Down here, you're on your own.

1. Here in Singapore, we work to survive, we live to pay.
2. My life kinda just had a drastic change which I'm not sure of what's gonna happen next.
3. Yes all the above are complains from me.
4. So far that is it.
5. I'm typing this while I'm serving my guest.

29 Jun 2014 - Guests From Hell

Yeah, I work in hotel line so, as you can well imagine, most hotel staffs, managers from time to time unwittingly host those "Guests From Hell". Those guests who are downright rude, overly demanding, impolite, disrespectful etc who leave the property in a dirty mess or at worse, have caused damage to the property. Then when confronted, have the audacity to post a negative reviews online like on Agoda, Tripadvisor and blablabla. In most cases, us staffs do not fight back and accept that from time to time we will have this type of guest stay with us but I have to say, that I somehow have great difficulty dealing with these "Types" of people. I find it abit hard to keep calm and collected and actually shake with inner rage when I have to argue with some of them. At such times as this, my blood pressure must go through the roof probably.

Here at the hotel, we've had our share of nightmare guests. I can actually relate my findings in this closed environment to generalizations about people in the world. Of course this isn't a perfect job since we really cater to a certain income level and possibly are skewed to certain age groups and ethnicities. But generally, I find that most people are friendly, if forgettable, but every once in a while you get someone you could imagine becoming really great friends with - and then someone comes along who you actually loathe. Sometimes it gets brutal in my head thinking how I still do have to give in as yknow, THE guest are kinda always right and I can't do nothing but to let my head boils for a minute or two.

On a positive note, these guests from hell really do made me well yknow, be alot more patient than ever. I can only thank them for making me a better human being.
