Did I work too hard in my younger days?

Saturday, May 6, 2017


Dentsu has banned its employees from working late hours following an overwork-related suicide.

A chat with a friend who is working in the Singapore Armed Forces:

AK:
You block leave?

F:

AK:

F:
You cannot meh?

AK:
I don't have best job. I have no job.

F:

AK:

F:

AK:
Big bucks?

F:

AK:
Aiyoh. You don't work 6 days a week mah.
That's why I worked on Sunday too for extra money when I was younger. In the end 7 days a week.

F:

AK:

Your life so good in comparison lor.

F:
Dont compare😁
Thats what you said

AK:
Now, I don't liao. Irrelevant to me now. 😀








This friend is a super investor and trader, by the way. 

He doesn't have to work anymore but he has a job that is pretty undemanding and pays relatively well.

He works because he wants to and not because he has to.





Sometimes, I wonder if I worked too hard in my younger days and missed out on having fun. 

Oh, well, I will just have to catch up with having fun now.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. What about all play and no work?

Bad Jack! Bad Jack!

Oops. 

Bad AK! Bad AK!

Hi Matthew,

I should learn from F too. ;)

Solace said...

I also need to learn from F too.

AK71 said...

Hi Solace,

Maybe, F should consider conducting classes. ;p

Matthew Seah said...

Hi AK,

If F is still in SAF, he cannot moonlight, hence he probably won't be conducting classes soon.

AK71 said...

Hi Matthew,

Having investment assets is a tricky issue for F too. -.-"

You sound like me when I was young.
Only wanted to stay at home and play computer games all day.
Now I am thinking of working instead.
Am I wiser now compared to last time?

AK said...
I have had enough of the working world, thank you very much. ;p
I will take your share of computer games and you can have my share of work. :D
