day 2260 – girls catchup

long overdue catchup for the girls. even though we’re all in different companies now, we’re still able to maintain connection. i think not being in the same departments made it more fun when sharing the information we know. sometimes when i hear what they say about their new job, it makes me wonder why i’m still at this company. i don’t necessary care for the spotlight, but it’s having my production goes unnoticed and often taken for granted

day 2236 – interiors

tired monday still trying to recover from the sleepless night at harrison. i got to work a little tardy but i didn’t really care. brother and sister in law has been sending pictures back to keep us posted on their vacation. this particular headboard interested me because it’s quite different than what i usually see. i believe him and his wife are currently in barcelona. they seem like they’re having lots of fun overseas

day 2160 – hawaii tradeshow

back to work the day after a long weekend didn’t have me jumping out of bed for joy. i almost overslept because i had forgotten to turn on the recurring the alarm clock. good thing my fitbit alarm woke me up quarter past six. the day could have been even worse; at least i’m doing something fun like rendering for the hawaii tradeshow. no olympic lifting today like my regular tuesday because i had gone yesterday

day 2145 – department change

going to work on monday morning with mixed emotions because the switch in position and department is considered a promotion. the fact i’m removed from the department i’ve grown with leaves a sour feeling. also having work with someone i need time and space from is rather uncomfortable. still, work must go on and i’ll be professional about it and keep the interaction at a business level. at the end of the day i just need to get my stuff done

day 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

day 2010 – test render

modeling and rendering my own bedroom as my first official test render. been talking to my manager about doing renderings for ages, but could never peel me off the work load. with the latest transition, his promise still stands. my manager and i agreed that this will be the perfect time to finally do what i’ve been wanting – model and render. the test render came out with a result so satisfyingly real. this will be the first of many and each one will only get better

day 1930 – marina bay sands

couldn’t go to singapore and not visit the iconic hotel while doing touristy things. i call it the hotel with surfboard on the top. even though i didn’t manage to watch crazy rich asian before this trip, i know this is crucial checkpoint. the hotel was so nice both inside and outside; i was so amazed by the designs and architecture as i was walking through the common areas within the lobby. this is definitely one hotel i want to stay in next time i’m back
