My Workstation

Working hours' gone and I feel like blogging about some random stuffs while the vacuum cleaner is playing some background music behind me. Vooo~~Vooo~~Vooo~~
You know how people say, you can read one's personality by looking at their room or their house's design and deco. Well then, what about office desk? I love to deco my office desk because I think it is crucial to set a happy working environment. Imagine when I'm stress or just had some arguments at work, all I need to do is to look at my desk with whole loads of my favourite stuffs... Awwww... The good mood might just come straight back! :D
I've recently changed a little of the deco so it looks a little bit more organised now. Well, at least to me. Deardo still says I have too much stuffs on my desk and it's really messy... :p
On the top right of my desk, I've pasted two pieces of papers of contacts numbers I always call. Next to them is a thank you card I received few months back from a student whom I've helped with an event she was organising. You think boss's praises make your day? I think students who appreciate my help and supports make me smile! I always say this, I'm always proud of my students! :) Right at the bottom is a postcard of Malaysian food! Ha, just to represent the foodie part of me! LOL!
Next to these stuffs, I have Chris Colfer and his quote pasted there. It says:"When people hurt you over and over, think of them like sandpaper. They may scratch and hurt you a bit but in the end, you end up polished and they end up useless." The quote is super encouraging, so is Chris Colfer, whom I truly admire and respect. And then there is this picture of my students and lecturers with their medals and trophies won at last year's Culinaire Malaysia 2011. Told ya I'm always very proud of them! At the bottom is an artsy-looking picture given by our designer.
And the right side of my desk, I have a horse-racing calendar. I have this weird hobby of knowing when is school holiday even though I'm no longer a student. Then at the far end I have pictures (one more picture is blocked in this picture) of me and my colleagues. I think there will be an additional one soon. Then you see whole piles of papers, notebooks, documents, folders, a cute calendar also from our designer and the cloth-made rose given by a colleague on Valentine's Day this year. My latest and proudest product added just today is the glass jar of dry flowers. Flowers were from Deardo... And some from me to him over the past two years plus.
And then as you move down, you'll see my notebook that I'm currently using. There are two other books at the bottom that are long overdue and I need to return to the library VERY SOON. Then of course, the useless CD albums for photos and videos from work. It's very tiny but I guess you can see, my namecards!!!
People always say my desk looks like a grocery shop. Well, I always have snacks, tea, coffee, milk, cereal, even lozenges loaded at my place. And I have different tumblers for different purposes as well. I brought my own bowl and cutlery as well so that I can skip using those plastic ones that the hawkers always give. If you realise, I also have a perfume just so I can spray some onto myself whenever I smell like food court coming back from a meal. I also have a bottle of sanitizer just so that I can clean my hands whenever I'm lazy to walk to the loo. How considerate am I, huh?
Kekekekeke...

So now tell me, what do you so through looking at my desk?

I try to keep drinks and food in the drawer, as they will distract from working la! My will power towards food is weak, so I don't dare to put on top of table.

Hahaha... Tell you what I also don't have the will power but I get sick of the snacks I have so I'll stop eating them after all... My drawer full already lar! :p
