So, after more than a year of hiatus from the working world, I stepped back into the 'rat race' reluctantly. Picture above is me trying to 'look' awake at 8something in the morning! Malaysian time 6am.
First day of work was alright. It was nothing complicated nor stressful.
I would say it is a humbling experience. Seeing how I am a chartered accountant who left one of the Big Four accounting firm after close to four years of audit experience (not that I am trying to brag) what more to say after achieving Assistant Manager position (I am seriuosly not bragging just trying to give you an insight of where I am coming from ;p), I am now doing data entry part time.
I don't think I can do this long term though NOT because I don't have what it takes but more so that it is rather tedious, mundane and repetitively no brainer.
However, for a part time job whilst I find other jobs, the pay is about the same, if not more (after conversion, that is) than what I was earning back in Malaysia as an AM. So, it's all good. Besides, I would say this is yet another one of God's blessings to us this past week.
Blessing #1 I can now legally work. Blessing #2 I was given this part time job without an interview involved!
And I can dress like that to work!! Wheee... Time to go shopping for more 'work' clothes!! Thanks to NiNi who took me shopping yesterday!!! Had great girl time with the pretty lady!
Forgive the unflattering pictures... didn't have much time to take better ones! Ensemble for first day of work... loose, flowy shirt from Temt at Knox paired with black leggings and boots!
After work, we headed to Chaddy Shopping Centre. I had my Fajita Burritos from Salsa's and Mr. C had some spicy wanton from Urban Asia. My fajita was a real let down. It used to be really good but the last few times, I've been disappointed. The portion is smaller and the food is lukewarm.
Loving winter and how we get to wear boots!!
Mr. C's spicy wanton. 9 measley pieces for about AUD9.80!
Too pricey IMHO.
They should have given 10-15 pieces as the wanton sizes were puny!
My disappointing Fajita..
