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:

You block leave?


You have best job!

You cannot meh?

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

Previous job

Aiyoh. Slave.

Slave earn big bucks

Big bucks?

Bigger than mine

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.

GOM states 5.5 days though

Also worked on some week nites for extra money... Very cham as a young working adult.
Your life so good in comparison lor.

Dont compare😁
Thats what you said

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!


Bad AK! Bad AK!

Hi Matthew,

I should learn from F too. ;)

Solace said...

I also need to learn from F too.

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
