Baby you're my fireworks

How was Mid Autumn for everyone? It was endearing for me... :)
Just playing with some candles and sparklers at Seletar on a quiet night with friends!

OK I know I am lagging badly beforehand, but with my internship program going on I am REALLY exhausted when I reach home at the end of the day. And usually I will get hooked to playing DragonNest for an hour or two before turning in at 12am (but usually drag till 1am!)

And waking up at 6.30am the next morning and the cycle repeats!

And with my official life spun into a working lifestyle... I realised that I have too little office clothes!! Hence recently I have been splurging a bit on clothes. Even before I received my pay. Hahaha ok control control!

My internship is located at the quiet area in Changi! DBS AsiaHub. Ok i know I have been whining and complaining about the location, but I think I grew to like it more as time passes!

Lots of greenery and... I found a premium bus service 740 that fetch me straight to Changi Business Park from Northpoint!! At a flat rate of $3.50 per ride. So on an average, I spend a total $8.40 on public transport per day, there and back.

Hahaha goodness. But i think it is worth it! It is just like taking cab to work... the bus only stops to pick up passengers at Yishun and Sembawang and then straight up to highway and stops right at my office :D

And I get to have a comfy seat - think of excursion buses - and I get to sleep while I head to work without having all the hassle of changing trains and squeezing on overly packed trains. :)

Me in my corporate colors - Red and Black for DBS!!!

Internship has been very enjoyable at DBS Asiahub. I am under the department of Technology and Operations. Yea I know it isnt the normal business and marketing stuffs that I learnt throughout my years in Ngee Ann Poly!

I was pretty much stunned on the first day of work, with words like processes, IT, excel, functional email, telephony all being thrown at me. LOL. Basically it is the back end office of DBS and I am under the Client Servicing Team!

Which basically means we do whatever we can to improve the client service. I like how we were not given mundane tasks like Photocopying, Data Entry or even filing of notes! I was already given my own project on Day 2.... holding a meeting on the second week of work.

It was very busy, but i felt that it was very fulfilling! I even learnt how to use Sharepoint now.. Ok pardon for the IT related terms. Not really my language either! :P

This is my desk!! It is so so spacious hahahaha. It cant even fit in my camera screen LOL. And I love how it is in orange! Brightens up my day. The office is very nice, pantry area is even nicer! Very cosy and warmly lit. And I am sitting right at the door! So I can be the first to run off at 6pm. - Just kidding!

And interns were issued laptops... but it is quite annoying that a lot stuffs were restricted and this and that. Lots of security and that in the banking industry!

I brought my own laptop to work as I have to do some photo editting and I cant install any software on the company laptop. :\

Hmm ok, they are NOT my team-mates, but due to some projects I am now part of the People Committee in DBS!! Hahahah this was taken in the pantry area!! So they are the people committee people whom I'm working closely with for certain projects!

Another reason why my work at DBS has been so enjoyable is that my colleagues AND supervisor are really really nice!! But sorry no pictures of them yet. Hahaha. 2 of them drives and hence when we are all together, we will all drive out to places to eat! Went to Changi Airport for lunch the other day and so on ^^

I like one of my colleague's car! Its a Honda Jazz and... it has got a sky roof!!! Like a transparent top... One day I shall get a car like that.. ^.^ Its so pretty! And a skyroof makes a car looks a whole lot more spacious!

Everyone has been very nice to me~ And my team mates are always poking fun at each other. And my supervisor doesnt even feels like a supervisor to me. LOL. Just thinking about my team mates always make me wanna laugh. Hahahaha.

Feels very very blessed to have such nice colleagues. And to think of it, I have been in DBS for 1 month already. 5 more months left! hmmmm~ Just that I need time getting used to the IT-environment. The learning curve is still there, but I am getting better! :D

Just that..... LUNCHES ARE SO GOD-DAMN EXPENSIVE T_T

And the other day, boyfriend brought me, natalie and Japer to Yishun Seletar to play with candles and sparklers!! As we celebrated a day after the official mid autumn day, it was much quieter :)

Just that the sea breeze kept blowing my candle lights out! :<

And we played with the sparklers and managed to get my name!!
