12 Days

In 12 working days the new employees arrive in Hong Kong. Which means 11 hour days will start to become increasingly more frequent for me in the office.

On the subject of office life I am in a little bit of a tricky situation. The overall boss of the organization has got me working on a project which is relatively boring but very time consuming. This work has to be kept quiet from my direct boss because there would be issues if it was known that my time was being spent on anything other than my usual job specification. What it all comes down to is I should learn to say no every now and again and stop taking on more work than I can cope with... But then promotion and contracts are on the cards soon so things can't hurt.

I have managed to go running on the Wan Chai Gap three mornings so far this week. I have also started making frozen fruit smoothies with soy milk so I can grab breakfast quickly on the way to work. I mentioned both these new habits to a friend and he said that there are landslides on the mountain where I run and soy products have been found to cause mental instability in men. So apparently I am not being healthy at all.

No other news really as I have been pretty boring this past week. This weekend I have managed to get on the guest list for a club party that promises to be celebrity filled and full of free booze. The invite comes from the same person who got me into the Absolut Vodka party earlier in the year. So lets hope I don't fall over in the toilet this time and be forced to go home early!
