It has been a rough week so far. Like I am really busy with the boss out of town and me coordinating and overlooking the team. That got the better part of me.

Sad news is that I was given a teaching opportunity recently but was taken away just 1 day before it was supposed to happen. Spent weeks meeting the course manager on planning of course notes and stuff. He is a really helpful guy and taught me a lot about preparing notes. My ideas were all over the place and he managed to structure them despite being not the expert in my field. I was really looking forward to teaching but... damn.
Story of Chicken Drumsticks
And so you probably should know by now about the case of me standing up against this online shopping site. So the story got twisted rather quickly no thanks to our chinese papers for translating drumsticks (musical instrument) to drumsticks from a chicken. For the curious mind what i actually bought.
With the story out there, many people have message me on various platform, from whatsapp to email, Facebook etc to ask me about what should they do. Some were friends and some were just stranger on the same ship. I heard from a reliable source that CASE is trying to do something about it and urge us to send in evidence and what not to help them do something. And after visiting case, I was reminded why I did not do this and also explains the small number of cases filed. In order to do this, you would have to pay $10.70 admin fee and also be a member with another member fee and all in all cost you about $60 there about? So I am going to spent $60 to TRY and get back $88. And MEMBERSHIP? Is it me or these two organization sounds like it is being run by the same guy? #JustSaying
The long waited Thailand trip got ruined because of the bombing issue. I know I was just at Bangkok with the wife just 2 months back but this trip is my buddy's party trip and we have been looking forward to it for the longest time. We are like teenagers partymate and growing up got us stop doing it and this time was one of those "last vegas" moment that we do it one more time, one for the future. Shit happens and I guess growing up and responsibilities got the adventurous part of me. I would have gone ahead if it was 10 years ago. With everything on my plate I am quite worried about visiting and what kind of emotion trauma I will put on the people around me. The love ones and especially those that I still owe them money. MUAHAHA. Anyway, I hope the land of thousand smiles quickly get back into shape. The nice people don't deserve this.
So to make myself feel better.. I went shopping on Taobao again. LOL. Yeah, gonna blog about that maybe tomorrow or something.
