There are days where we simply want to take our workbench elsewhere. Away from home, away from the office. That applies to me on most days. The problem with taking work out is that we need a conducive work environment and constant supply of caffeine. I often look for cafés to work at but there are some considerations I take into account before I decide if it is a conducive cafe to work at.

1. WIFI

Having slow Wifi or no Wifi at all is simply a #firstworldwoe, but let’s face it, it’s the first thing we think of, and some of us have experience hitting the limit of 3G usage (there goes the personal hotspot option).

2. Ample power sockets to charge our devices

If we’re working on our laptops, and judging on how crappy the battery lives are for our electronic devices these days, power sockets are important…

List of grattitude in Jan 2014

I’ve thought about it, people who are successful and happy constantly are thankful for their surrounding. And so I want to do this on a monthly basis to remind myself to be grateful.

  1. The manager’s belief in me. Would not have made it through Jan if not for his constant pushing and giving me ideas and steering me towards positivity.
  2. I’ve made it!!!!! It’s a make or break month, and I made it.
  3. My running buddy. His ideas pulled me through too.
  4. Keeping my focus to my one and only goal. Now i know how does it feels to be really focused.
  5. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. If I didn’t have that belief, I can never make it.

Feb is ending soon. But still, fight on. My monthly goal is yet to achieve!

Importance of a Personal Accident plan

Here’s a living example.

I was down with Food Poisoning — till now. My tummy is still churning, lesser bout of diarrhea but no less the symptoms is still there. I was brought to hospital 2 days ago and was placed in observer ward. Apparently, that’s not classified as a hospitalization as i was not warded, even though I was there from about 2200hrs+ till 0500hrs. Not sure if it makes a difference if I stayed more than 8 hours though. But the difference was, I went ahead to cover myself with the free dengue cover that we gave to our client back in Oct 2013, all because my manager ask me to do so. And why not? because I only had a old and not updated AIA Personal Accident plan my mum bought and kept till now. Tada, the use for it comes.

People please, don’t belittle how much a Personal Accident plan can do for you in times like this. When you’re not hospitalized, when you’re not total and permanent disabled, when you sprain your ankle and etc. This is what can save you.

By Personal Accident plan, what I meant are newer ones that cover H1N1, Food Poisoning, Dengue Fever and etc. Not those that just merely cover accidental disablement or death.

Whether if it’s through me or your trusted adviser, please get one done up ASAP. You’ll never know when’s food poisoning or dengue fever will hits you.

To facilitate my cafe-hunting adventures with the missus, I’ve consolidated the names and addresses of existing cafes in Singapore and created an easily-accessible directory of cafes in Singapore grouped by locality. So thanks to referencing excellent food websites like ladyironchef and burpple, I am able to share this categorised list with you. Do let me know if there are any cafes I should be including or excluding. Hope you find this helpful! (:
