Today

It's 7 in the morning and here I am, sitting in fron of my system, ready to work :D but since the Kana software is down, got nothing to do, I don't know how long this gonna take and so I took this opportunity to make a post.

Ace - that's the name of my new team. It's been 15 months that I have work for IBM and this is already my third team (hope its not changed again). Anyway, the reason of this new team is that, we the SmallBiz group is divided into two teams with a Technical LOB.

Sometimes I used to ask myself, 'Do I deserve this title?' I am not so confident about calling myself a Tech Support but then I the non-tech one (I once handle the non-tech part too), really bores me, it was quite boring. You don't have to use your brain, just give the faq away..easy but very boring. Then, on the tech side, I yused to say to myself 'I am not the one for this job, its not my line' when the porblems are really tough and you have to find a solution for that. Sometimes it took me 30 mins to hmadle one problem but the result of that always gave me satisfaction.

May - I feel that May is the longest and the hottest month in a year, I don't know how I get this feeling but May is not my favorite month. Can't believe that there is still one week left. Had it been other months, we will be stepping into the new month by now., **whew**. We gave our cooler a major repair and works fine now :D. The best part of this month is that it rains frequently that cools down the temperature tremendously - to 35C ha ha..this is just so wonderful. so beautiful to see that this moring (while @virgo slept away)


My tickets are booked and I'll be singing 'Bye bye bye' to Delhi on 4th June :). I am so excited to go home. funny part is that I feel that my colleagues are as excited as I am, knowing that I haven't gone home for a very long time. My much needed break finally comes. God, I am so excited. Looking forward to meet my family, my friends. Can't wait to eat the Mizo food, yummy corn...uuhhhh I am so excited.

That day

Work had been very hectic these days, couldn't find the time to blog and hardly find the time to misual :). As there is the tool is down, no work can be done so though of adding a new popst.

When I came to office on Tuesday, I was shocked to see there were 404 mails to be handled in WSS queue and I am the only one in the shift to churn those 404 emails and at most I could handle 10 to 12 emails per hour (whew). The other thing that slow me down was that to keep track as to why there were so many emails in that queue when the other days it used to have 60/70 emails. I am telling you, it wasn't a peace of cake. At the end of the shift i realized that I didnt even take half hrs break (never knew I was that dedicated, lolzz). As a resukt of my hard work :D, it turned out that there was a bug and so we finally receive a bug no. in this case; whew.

The next day there were still tons and tons of emails and that night I stayed for OT of 3 hrs. Now, this is what I really wanted to talk about; the incident that took place in the cab. As I did an OT, a special request for my drop was sent. I turned out that I was alliged with the Vanguard cab and god, that was the worst incident that I have ever experienced while my time in IBM.

I was in the cab, waiting for these guys, not knowing that I was waiting for a group of monster. They were very rude and they say stuff like "I don't know whi she is, I don't know where she is from...don;t knwo what she's doing here..." among themselves, not bothering to ask me. I wanted to give them a piece of my mind but I was a bit too tired to talk but I felt really bad and I really hated them. I hated Aman for making me stay for an OT.

The next day, when I enterd the room, I reported this matter and said "I will never ever have any drop with Vanguard, I'll never board their cab again". It's possible that I was the unlucky one to face the devils of Vanguard but I guess the Vanguard process is filled with evil. Megha, my colleague faced the same experience and hers was worse than mine. They said to her "We dont know who you are and no matter what you will have the last drop.." god, glad I am not in Vanguard.

Think of it, there were many times when ppl from different process is alligned in our cab but we are always very polite with them. Besides, that was not the first time that I was alligned with another cab but so far never had complaint but with this guys............I will never board their cab again, I'd prefer to hire a taxi a pay the expense from my pocket..its more worth it.

Almost slipped my mind

The fact that "I Quit Smoking from today" almost slipped my mind, the most important thing that this May got me into.........I just want whoever come across be the witness.

And so here I repeat "I quit smoking from while summer is in bloom" :D.

Well, I cant make any commitment when winter comes, in winter I need to smoke to keep my body warm (smokers, agree??) so I cannot say that this stands for winter but at least it stands for summer

May

So, today's the 1st of May, May Day..but am at work. Anyway, just want to share these few details

1. An Ac Cab is to be introduced from today but my cab today is does not have AC.....luckily the weather's not that hot today

3. Colored my hair yesterday but I dont like the result so I thought of re-doing it next week (so sorry, my beautiful hair...lol its gonna be another taste of the strongn taste of the chemical)

4. Just not in the mood to work today..too sleepy..slept very badly last night

5. Starting from tomorrow, I am to train 2 guy in Y! Website Service...I don't know how to feel but I'll take this as an achievement. Besides this, I have been assiged a mentee in Web Hosting (I am just 1 mnt old in this) and so I'll take this as another achievement cos the older guys were not assigned this. By luck, my mentee is on leave as he got married yesterday.......lucky me :)

6. Now that the Dehli heat really started, the house mosquitoes are also "Rest in Peace"....ha ha ha...I guess the heat is just too much for the to hunt for blood...this means that no more All Out for a time being. This is the best part of this heat

7. Today, I receive mail in my Outlook regarding "7 dont's after a meal" . Out of 7, I failed in 3 don'ts :(

* Don't smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

* Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

* Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

I wonder how many of us faild inthe first 2 don'ts

8. Searched for the perfect pic for May Day and here it is
