Hello Everyone,
you must be thinking, what exactly is so special about September 2012?

Well, the answer to that is, I’m going to ORD on 14 September 2012.

Ok, that does not sound really interesting but anyway, from now till then, I have been thinking about many things such as what I should exactly pursue.

Questions, Questions, and more Questions…!

1) Should I further my studies?

You know, there are probably millions of graduates all over the world competing with one another for jobs in the government and private sectors and it seems that the paper chase is probably the key to securing a high paying job. How does an organisation then determines who they should hire? I mean after all, a person with a degree but whom has a lousy working attitude isn’t going to do the organisation any good right? I personally don’t wish to waste any more time studying. So, I guess furthering my studies is not my priority for now.

2) What Career Paths Should I Pursue?

Ok. I have to admit that this has been quite a dilemma for me. I have been offered many opportunities for interviews and positions in the Banking & Finance Industry, Hospitality & Tourism Industry, the MICE Industry, and the Business Administration Sector. While all the positions offered to me were very attractive in terms of remuneration and benefits, I can’t seem to decide on which one I would definitely enjoy doing. After all, I want a career which I am passionate about. The downsides to this path are that I have to answer to a superior and my earnings are pretty much capped at a certain rate.

3) The Entrepreneurial Spirit

Baby and I have been thinking of starting up our own business for sometime now. However, I have to admit that I’m pretty concerned about the Capital and how I’m going to come up with them. Moreover, there were other concerns but honestly, I wonder if $50,000 would be enough for a small start-up? I can’t exactly reveal the detailed plans for now but then again, I wonder if this should be the path I take. The upsides to this path are that I can be my own boss and my earnings are not capped. I remembered my dad saying that starting up one’s own business is better than working for somebody because the satisfaction you get from the result of your very own hardwork is much more fulfilling.


I really have no definite answer for now. With so many obstacles in the way, I can’t seem to decide on a definite choice. If you have any inputs/word of encouragement/word of discouragement/advise/opinions to share, please feel free to share them with me by commenting on this entry. Like Baby always tell me that I am fickle-minded, I believe I am fickle-minded! Gosh! =X
