work

so i have started with my new job

yesterday was my first day,
and surprisingly i got the essentials set up pretty quickly, faster than i had expected.
got my email account up and running,
got my phone set and extension,
set up the voicemail,
even got my name plate which is now sitting nicely on top of the monitor....

today,
i got access to some of the shared drives so that i can start reading documents and stuff.
set up a few meetings with some of the people whom i will be working closely with.
to be honest, i am not great in dealing with people i just met....  hmmm
but it's just something i need to do.

and yes, confirmed the flight and hotel booking for next week.
i will be flying off to london for the whole of next week.
there is an onsite conference for the global team and then i am to meet my direct managers....
finally can meet them in person.... as so far, i have only been talking to them over the phone (even my interviews!)

i need to check what the weather is like over in london

somotu is also going to come along....

my brother and ah king have kindly accepted the "important task"!
the task of having brownie and sugar at their home while somotu and i are away....

it's quite a rush...  so lots to take care before we fly off this weekend.....

i am already missing brownie and sugar.....

wow, you are going to London next week? The weather can be quite hot during day time, but not the same hot and sticky weather in hk

Will you have some free time to take a look at different places while your are in London?

Have fun Aileen tho it's a biz trip. Simply walking down London street makes people happy, especially in the nice summer month. :)
