Singapore Trip (Part 1)

After 3 years of leaving Singapore, I returned to Vietnam and push myself so hard to prove that I am capable of doing things in any job that I can enroll in. It seems like my 2nd new-beloved family was giving another chance of returning to this beautiful place, where I have learnt everything that I need to be standout and be able to live by myself.


During my internship program, I did quite a good job on handling the tasks and developing my own skills into another new level, but then, all of the sudden that came out of nowhere, my bosses called my over into the meeting room and asked me “How do you feel about this job?” I thought that it is normal to raise that question before my period is going to an end soon enough. My heart was raced a little bit but it was outta control since they called another 3 staffs inside the room, then this happened: We knew that our Company’s Trip in Da Lat last time was a cool experience, but this time, we will go to somewhere else, over the sea.


So we had to guess what was that place, all of our thoughts were about Con Dao, Phu Quoc and stuff like that, the answer was a “No”, then by the time I think about that place, our bosses said it would be Singapore. And the reasons why were we had to learn and see how we can change our ways of working together, how do we feel about push ourselves out of the comfort zone and take real closer look besides of pictures, films about Singapore. This was an opportunity for all of members from my company to see the most beautiful and advanced country by the name of “Dragon of the Southeast Asia”.

Therefore, everybody in that room on the day, we were selected as members who were going to organize this trip from the very first step until the end of it. You wanna know my true feeling? Of course, happy and worry and way much more than that. How do you plan to take all of these people to Singapore without leaving anyone behind? Furthermore, more than half of the company is never ever step outside of Vietnam before, which means that they are having no passport, and really then, we ONLY have 1 MONTH to prepare everything.

Looking for my experience of organizing things, along with my feelings? Wait and see, maybe it will not be so great or magnificent like yours, but hey, this is my VERY FIRST experience of how to organize a trip to another country for 20 people and more. Please note that, you can always ask me question in comments below, then I will try to answer it with my story.

Design Your Surroundings To Make Good Choices

We often think that achieving a task is just about getting out there and doing it. We believe that if there’s a will, we can find a way towards a goal and no matter what how we start it. But our environment influence in what we choose to do, as opposed to what we want to do. If you have choices around you that are distracting or lead to undesirable outcomes, then it becomes harder to make the right choices. For example in my workplace is instant noodles, everytime someone cooks it then people will start to find something to eat which distract them from work.

On the other side of the coin, having an environment that strictly offers you productive choices allows you to only do what’s best for yourself and of course, your tasks. So if you want to work on improving your working habits, take a look around you and see how you can make it more convenient to do so. For example, using the profile function from Google Chrome would help us separate which browser is for private and which is for work (picture below).

Most of the time, you can have many ideas from environmental cues to work towards an outcome faster and easier. This can be applied in different aspects of life:

  1. To get work done, minimize distractions that take away from your focus, as I showed you above with tab manager.
  2. If you want to eat better, put healthier foods and water within close reach, eat and drink will refresh your mind because you can move you body a little bit after an hour of working.
  3. When you try to persuade someone to perform a task, explain and set it up so that it’s convenient for the person to do so. Most of the time you properly looking for help in different departments or groups, try to cut your task into smaller pieces and easy to achieve.

Wanting something done is not enough. If you want a certain outcome, you need an environment that gets you closer towards it. There will be another post about working Effective is different from Efficient.

Changing Your Environment Not Your Company

Making changes to your environment makes it easier to do what’s right without having to think about staying motivated. If you can set up your surroundings to make better decisions easier, then you can set yourself up to practice better habits.

Often, we think that change comes from within or from self-study or read books or seminars. We believe that achieving a goal is about changing ourselves and the way we think. But we lack our attention to the fact that optimizing our environment to make better choices significantly impacts our actions.

The changes we make may seem small initially. For instance, it might not seem like much to move a book you want to read from the shelf to your desk but every piece that you move with the spirit of optimizing your desk, your working behavior with positive change.What did you think of this list? Share with your friends and family to find out if they have found the woman they should marry!

[Music] When We Happy Then We Listen

I had a thought, running through my head
Now you’re gone, I don’t remember it
I had the life, and then I see you
Now our love is all see through

Oh, no worries, no worries, no worries now,
Cuz loves just comes and goes
No worries, no worries,
I’ll swear like a sailor, sailor from my bad behavior

And If you come and go it won’t matter anymore, it won’t matter anymore, no
And if you can’t stay slow, I’ll be waiting at the door, I’ll be waiting at the door
And If you come and go it won’t matter anymore, it won’t matter anymore, no
And if you can’t stay slow, I’ll swear like a sailor, sailor from my bad behavior

I have a lover back in England
She’s a star, she’s like Taylor Swift
I come home, don’t remember it
Cuz She’s gone, she don’t exist

Each of us will have more than one favorite song, some sad and some happy but each of them will connect to your memories. When you are happy, you will dance with it and enjoy the rhythm but when you are blue, lyrics and words are things which you will most understand and feel.

Love and relationship will always our most beautiful time of being with someone, also teach us a lot even though we may not end up in happy ever and after so, therefore, we live and learn how to move on with each new day and new YOU. I am now lucky and full of life because of the one beside me everyday beside my family, showing we how to love, how to share and how to pick up myself when everytime I hit the ground. Kindness is always something hidden inside of me, so afraid to let people know this weakness and try to manipulate it  by the time they see me, but my girl told me that it is okay to be manipulated sometimes because I already knew it so let’s call it a different things: Help or give them a hand.

There was time that I won’t believe in love or sweet things because it was ridiculous, so many broken hearts and chances that show me why love is bad for your health, then she comes in my life with her very first love, gentle smile and kind heart that I can ever imagine and there was one time that I had to ask her like why she always smile and happy about it? Hardly see you under gloomy day and the list went on, every answer are come up to the final one: because love and relationship are the most important to life, no matter how hard it is, we have to try harder and make it possible with all you got.


[Sharing] Find Me in the Garden — BeautyBeyondBones

Guys. I’ll admit: I’m pretty “basic.” Granted, I don’t drink Starbucks, and Uggs are not my footwear of choice, but I definitely can relate to the stereotype, probably more than I’d like to admit. Like my affinity for Audrey Hepburn. Now, to be fair, I never saw Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but hey — I like […]
