But – shhh! I’m not supposed to let people know I’m here (workshop politics 😉 )
Heh…but I AM here, and it seems I may be back out here too – my personality (?) coupled with my skillset makes me quite a useful chap it seems (and this isn’t me blowing my own trumpet – I’m actually blushing slightly as I type this…). Been a very successful trip all in all though – I was sent out here to resolve some issues with a web-based venture the company is involved in, done that in the first day really, the subsequent meeting to be honest, was just to ‘fill in’ the non-technical persons involved.
As part of my job, I’ve been dealing with different people in Singapore for some years now, and the last 2 days I’ve been able to put faces to names and meet some characters…Patrick and his wife Grace last night were 2 such people, and I was very honoured to be invited to their house for a meal and drinks.
As for contacts, well, I met the British Consulate’s under secretary who fancies himself as a bit of a pool player, so we’ve arranged to meet up tonight and have a few beers in town (can’t have too many though – I’m due at the airport for 7am for my flight home).
Everyone (both friends and work colleagues) thinks I’m on a ‘jolly’ here – but it really is very work related and this week has been a great week workwise – orders are now flying in and it seems every time I check the work emails, there’s another one there for me 🙂 (ok, now I AM blowing my own trumpet slightly… 😛 ).
And so, my latest adventure is almost over – tomorrow I go from this:
Incidentally, the A380 is one hell of a plane – it’s fucking HUGE!
And so, think I’ll go for a dip in the pool before grabbing a cab into town…y’all don’t appreciate how hard I work 🙂
