The Pre and Post Me.

For this past month I am back in the office. In another “project”, “new” set of staff and “new” environment. Every time when I joined a new project, especially when I am leading it, I would feel like I am in another company. The reason being is that I will be surrounded by colleagues that I do not know or have not worked with before. As a lead it’s quite difficult sometimes, as I believe for you to deliver a piece of work on such short time, you will really need to know the strength and weakness of your staff. Hence there are always 2 “mountains” to climb, the project dateline and tweaking & getting the best out of somebody you hardly know.

In my company, I have seen new faces come and go. There was this particular incidence which actually makes me laugh, which happens last week. I was sitting in my place which is actually in a big room share with >10 others when someone that I have actually worked with in a previous project walks in. I believe she was “on loans” from another project to help out in quality assurance of another. When she walks in, I greet her, “How are you?”, she replied, “Who are you? I do not know you leh…”. Guess what she knew me when I was still a “Panda”, after 4 years of blissful marriage and now I am back at my pre wedding days or shall I say the “courting” period of my wife.

An "illustration" to tell you why she did not recognise me, a picture of me a year before I was diagnose with Kidney Cancer and a picture of me a year and half after my operation.

Ah Pek, its ok....having a more healthy diet would help, at least 5 servings of fruits and vege per day and no fried, roast foods. Only steam....
