Midnight Time for a Personal Short Post

December 24, 2008 · Posted in Anything 

MidnightThe time now is half past 2 in the morning on Christmas’ eve. Come to think of it, I did not even realise that it’s already on Christmas eve! How time passes. Just slightly more than one year ago, I returned to Singapore after finishing my research overseas, and now I am working in a prestigious company.

During this period of time, a lot of things have happened; some were good, whereas others were not. Indeed, I have experienced both extreme cases of what has happened in my life for the past one year and a half, and I supposed it was probably the goodness that I had received, which kept me going strong.

Three minutes have gone past, but I kept thinking about what might happen next year; that is, in 8 days’ time, what is going to happen? I cannot foresee what could probably be another big step of my life. Besides, I have already achieved my goal in getting my doctorate degree. The future definitely does not look bleak; it’s more of how I decide to mold it to facilitate my interests and happiness.

Job prospects in Singapore are not too bad; but as I had always claimed there is always this issue of N.S. recalls that kept me on my toes and always a pain in neck. For me, it is just a simple message that says, “… if you want to stay and progress in Singapore, you have to follow our policy… be recalled back to army as and when we desire…” It may not reflect the direct interpretation of the policy maker, but to the people, like myself, who has to uphold by executing the policy, I am totally upset about this. Unfortunately, this is just too compelling; yet, I could do nothing about it.

The economy worldwide is not too fantastic either; but what matters a lot more to me, is the ability to keep my interest alive and to be happy – doing the things that I enjoy doing. In other words, not doing things that I am forced to do. With that, I end my note here with a clear message that sometimes life is just as such. We can’t have the best of both world, but only to choose the “right path” when the time comes. Last but not least, is there truly a right path?
