Post I Like – Happy Chinese New Year, Everyone!

Yes, I didn’t wished a happy new year on my blog when 2020 kicked off. I did wished few on my posts comments but didn’t wrote a post specifically about welcoming 2020.

And here I’m today, re-blogging a post by Kally Nat of MiddleMe about Chinese New Year!

And there’s good reason for it.

The simple explanation Kally Nat is telling us about how Chinese people welcome their new year, what they go through and what they look forward to, is really an amazing piece to read out today.

Plus, these days I’m fully engaged up in a project at my workplace for a big customer, whose name I can’t speak of but it features the word Cat. And since this is the year of Rat in Chinese zodiac, so I thought why not 😀

Enjoy this post by Kally Nat and be sure to follow her for more tips and tricks about your professional life and more 🙂

I have scheduled this post so that when you are reading this, I and my little family are on the road driving towards Singapore.

Chinese New Year is a huge festival where my parents will never forgive me (okay, I’m exaggerating but they will definitely not be happy) if I don’t make my way back home no matter which part of the world I am in.

Even when I was working in Shanghai (6 hours flight away from Singapore), I brave the crowd and the horrid air ticket price (I could have a round trip ticket to Europe and back) to go back to celebrate this special occasion with my family. 

Chinese New Year to Chinese is like Christmas to Caucasians.

We flocked home, overcrowd the airports, train stations and roads (shoulder to shoulder), paid ridiculously for anyone who can take us home, forked out (again, ridiculously high prices) for…

Post I Like – The One Thing We Need To Improve In 2020

For many, their workplace is a heaven but do they actually know that some of their colleagues may consider it as hell?

Because a place where most of us spend such a big amount of our weekly time should be a place where individuals are treated with respect and dignity, regardless of their personal believes.

Kally of MiddleMe is talking about what should be done to improve and nurture a healthy working environment, regardless of its size.

We are in the 21st century however, we are still very much lacking in basic human decency to treat an employee in the workplace.

In Japan, people are suffering from Karoshi – overwork death in Japanese. All over the world, females are being paid significantly lesser than their male counterparts. In reality, many of us are still suffering from workplace abuse and harassment. Something that nobody wants to talk about. A sensitive topic that managers and HR want to shush it under the carpet.

It’s shocking, isn’t it?

Bullies are not just in school or in the playground. They are very much real in our workplace. A place where we suppose to feel safe where we put in many hours, sometimes more hours than we spent at home.

It isn’t just about the one-time careless sexist remark from your coworker.

It’s about fearing you will be fired anytime because you…
