Happy Anniversary in F&B

Two days from now will be the anniversary of my long-awaited transfer to my current department where I am working. And to commemorate this amazing journey and experience, I would like to share a few photos of my experience of working for a year in the Food & Beverage department with all the ups and downs!

Presence

There was a moment of clatter in my mind after the situation happened before my eyes. I was hesitant to even give a sincere smile from my heart so I smiled normally like I would smile to a stranger.  I didn’t want to create confusion and distraction from his eyes.

I am sincerely being nice as a friend and if I couldn’t stay longer, it only means and shows that at least I am making time to greet and give a present which is my presence. Giving an hour and a half of my life means that it is to become a part of those important people in my life. Important but not really a priority. Being there might have even given slight confusion and me leaving earlier than expected might make an essence yearn for something more that I can give, but I can’t.

I will leave it as a sign of my existence in those hours.

I hope that my presence meant something more to you.

Sincerely,

Iya Rai

Keeping My Head Held High

It feels good when you trust someone and trusts you in return.

..Only, that he or she wasn’t.

I’ll be turning 25 in a few weeks and I’m reflecting on the way I am around other people. It’s a little distracting though that I have still this innocence of trusting people. I am very careful in choosing the people I trust due to past experiences but it hurts so bad when they doubt you. This has nothing to do with my personal life or at work but in general. I tend to be sincerely kind and trusting to the wrong people who are praising me in front of other people for them to look good or maybe because they have to because of social norms but sincerely doubts me deeply.

I don’t like that. Who likes that? Nobody wants to be stabbed behind their back.

Day Off Snaps

I haven’t posted recently cos I’ve been lazy going to the gym and at the same time writing! It must be the hormones kicking. Anyways, I will try to go back to the gym at the end of this week and try to write everyday here.

First things first.

I joined the Christmas Choir this year to at least give in return to the company I’m working for my so called little talent in singing. However, after how kany practices, I have grown a little hate on the songs we sing simply because I don’t know most of the songs and I know it takes time to know it but my problem is that I don’t have the sincerity in singing those song. I don’t wish people a Happy Christmas because I know that I won’t be having a Merry or at least Happy Christmas. This sincerity that is missing in me makes me sing the songs so normal. Our conductor said that we have to be genuine and sincere while singing the songs and feel that Christmas is coming or better yet here already. I can’t let myself lie to myself. I am the type of person that if it’s not yet here then it’s not. Don’t force something that it not real. Don’t live in a fantasy just to make the singing get better. Whoa, okay. This post is not supposed to be a rant. It’s supposed to be a wrap up of the following weeks that I wasn’t able to update this blog. So moving on, I feel like I don’t want to attend the practice tonight anymore not just because of my reasons but because of my job’s needs. I am getting busier everyday because of the Festive Season and I feel like I will not be able to commit to it.  Continue reading “Day Off Snaps”
