[ 20072006 1.36am some gosu bad mood or something. ]

ok. Now that the interviews are all over and stuff, I think its safe to blog about it. I have made it through 3 rounds, spanning 3 weeks, which consisted of :-
round 1 : group interview, kebaya test, 1 to 1 interview (which, for me was 2vs me, I dunno why…)
round 2 : swimming confidence test (jump from fake airplane into pool and swim), psychometric test, a beautician’s examination
round 3 : management interview (quakes in fear…), tea session

all this, because I applied to SIA to be an air stewardess. What’s standing in between me and the job, is my medical check up. After which, I can still be kicked out during the 4 months of training, or the 6 months of probation following the 4 mths of training.
This has been one hell of an experience so far… and I can only imagine how much more I might experience, should I really get the job.
Well… this being the first interview, and first job I’ve applied for since graduation… I guess I should be glad!


other than that, been commentating at capl, wcg sp and wcg nyp. Its been rather fun, especially when the crowd is responsive! Wcg nyp was great… and of course, I used [RGN] furryfish, not tammy… LOL! Its nyp afterall.


ok. Lets get to the bad mood section now then, shall we. Since it’s like, all out in the open, lets set up a Laundromat and show the world some gosu dirty linen. Yeah?

Let me begin with a quote.
“I thought we were all happily playing together. But why did so much things pop up all of a sudden. Or issit that i am too ignorant to see that you weren't happie. From the start to me u looked happie and contented like this is all u ever wanted. Maybe i was wrong. But i hope everything will be fine among us.”

Okaay. Let’s start with commitment now then, shall we.

Yes, there have been comments that the fire is dying. I’ve said that about myself even. It’s a fact, and I’ve not been denying it at all. I guess its easy to talk about commitment in the context where all is required to show it is attendance. SIMPLE ATTENDANCE. All the paper work, contacting, bookings, emailing, smsing, msning, of both teams involved, has been done. Even obtaining of subs for those who actually do bother to tell me early enough that they would not be there. Everything has been settled, just turn up, preferably, on time.
However, after all this is done, and all is left is just attendance, or a more prompt sms reply to show commitment, and even that doesn’t happen, well. Then I don’t have much to say.
After a few times of settling everything and not getting enough to help keep admin and organization functioning, well yes, of course the fire is going to die. Mine is, at least.

And if you really think that other than feeling committed to the team and just playing the game as a team is ALL there is to commitment, well, I’m telling you there’s a hell lot more.

A desire to improve

Who the hell wants to “deprove”, if there is such a word. Briefings are only possible if players come early. If players don’t even come on time, then well, no briefing is possible. Not in detail anyway.
Debriefings we have done, are usually about how we feel about the game, or some glaring mistake that we are just aching to point out again and again to another party. Mostly, emo stuff, if I may say. How much of what we actually say can contribute to our skills and actual game play. Nothing very much, I would say. Even if there WAS something, I do not think we would trust the advice given. Advice has to come from a higher order, proper debriefing has to come from someone else who can see and who is neutral and is not in with the emo thing. This is what I have learnt, and come to realize, after a few “debriefings”. Some people do have good ideas and advice, but the rest don’t listen just because the idea comes from someone less skilled. Yes? Admit it please.

Clan sponsorship

Clan sponsorship over a teammate. Well, if it were that simple, my answer is clear. Teammate.
HOWEVER, this has proven to be more than an issue of money VS teammate. Its about, let me put this abit more into perspective…
Teammate who wants to leave clan cos of issues with other clan people, VS
a sponsorship deal which is working out fine for the team, AND the rest of the clan.


I have spent sometime thinking through things, and this is my conclusion. For those who don’t know the full story, or only THINK you know the full story, pls kindly keep your BIG NOSES out of this. Thanks. And comments / tags, are to be left WITH your real name, or a recognizable nick, or they will just be deleted. If they are out of point, and just pure flaming, they will be deleted too.
So think before you type.
