my new year..

Decided to go back to my office on the eve of New Year's Day..

I haven't been back at the office for the past few days because I was at SPH for orientation..The moving guys had already came in and shifted most of the furnitures and equipment over to Mediacorp and so, the entire area where my department was is now a big empty space..Just couldn't help tearing when I saw the state of the office - this was the place where i'd spent the past few months at, good times with [ex] colleagues and celebratory moments when deals were closed or when we'd achieved good ratings...

Over at the studio, most of the production guys and artistes were there viewing the last few hours of Ch I & Ch U programming. The mood was poignant with most people remininising on how the tv station was started with so much expectations and hope. The tsunami disaster was not forgotten either as a box was passed around for the collection of donations for the victims. I didn't choose to stay on till the New Year as I wanted to spend that time with my family..I just wasn't in the mood to celebrate..

Reached home abt 11plus..waited for midnight and we all gathered at Aidan's bedside & kissed him Happy New Year and watched him sleep..My wish for the New Year is simple..for the year ahead to be a peaceful one.

The empty space where our cubicles used to be..
this was where half of the sales & marketing people sat...

With Shih Chuan and Su Ming
Both will be going over to MCTV..

with Celeste..

Ann Poh..

Ong Ai Leng..
***

I know I'm fortunate to be one of the few going over to SPH..or that's what everyone at the office has been telling me. The general feeling of the guys who are going to MCTV isn't that positive. Almost all of them will be in Ch U and their impression is that the channel may not last long, especially since the programming has been changed so that it will not clash with Ch 8 and the annoucement that Ch U will be targeted at the PMEB chinese viewers. I mean, come on! Ch U's success was mainly because it was it managed to reach the heartlanders and the young viewers..!

I'm not sure what's it gonna be like at SPH. The culture there is definitely different from Mediaworks but I've met some of my future colleagues and they seem okay. Anyway, currently, what I crave for in a job is stability and I hope I can get that there...

New Year's Day
Woke up early so that we could go for the Zara Sale at Great World City and avoid the crowd. It was actually hubby's idea :) And headed to stephiechai's mom place after that coz it was her girls, Herlene and Heidi's birthday celebration party :)

Aidan was in such a party mood today. He only slept a li' in the car and woke up the minute we reached there...and the li' boy was so busy prancing around, playing with the toys in the goodybags, bonding with the other kids like Carol (cario's Christopher and the other kiddos in the house.. I think he started hyperventilating when the cake was brought up and couldn't stop smiling and staring at it..

Happy Birthday Herlene and Heidi :)

An impossible task to get Aidan to stay still for the cam..

Ong Ai Leng was a model/actress from Malaysia..which SPHMW had signed early last year. Many said she looked like Fann..the resemblence is there but honestly, Fann looks much better.

I think Ai Leng looks like Fann more so in pics..less so in person. Actually, Fann looks way better than Ai Leng..:P Ai Leng has pretty bad complexion..

OMG! tat office.... really devastating.....

ChU targeted at PMEB? But many PMEB in Singapore prefer English channels, or just no time to follow tv every nite..

Watched tonite ChU news.. Shake head! Tat Liang ni looks like a younger clone of zhang haijie, from hairstyle and the way she read news... I hardly could continue watching after 5 mins.

and i'm surprised they didn't even interview Darren when reporting Evelyn gave birth to a baby... would be more detailed if run by Mediaworks..

Enough rattling.. Happy new year to u.. and all the best for your new job! :)

yeah..i was quite affected when i saw the state of the office..everything's gone..

Yeah lor..stupid direction right? CH U's strength was their variety..looking at the grid now, it sure looks like the channel will most likely not fare as well.

We heard abt Evelyn's birth on the eve of New Year too..talk abt timing eh. Well,could be that Eveyln n Darren didn't want to be interviewed..

Happy New Year to u too!

Wah, who's Celeste? :drool: looks like Japanese celeb.

Celeste has been ard for a while..she started out as a model - quite a popular one, and was even a singer in a New York based - defunct girl group, Jungk which was managed by Malcolm McLaren, former manager of the Sex Pistols. She's now more known as a local actress after failing to break into the Taiwan music market.

She had her hair cut (her bangs) and dyed recently..Personally, I think she looked better before..she look too jappish now! :P
