Random Notes 28

(1) Workload has been really heavy on my side these few weeks. I have been taking the laptop home on some weekday nights and weekends. The good thing is that the bulk of the work will be shared among some colleagues starting from next week. And then I can catch up on more rest and more time to blog.

(2) Finally, a HR (human resource) department that actually deliver a difference. Squeezing 2 weeks of work into 9 days (instead of 10 days) so that we all get to have a free day off every 2 weeks. The price we have to pay is just to come 1 hour earlier, or stay 1 hour later. A small price for getting a "long" weekend every 2 weeks. The participation rate of this voluntary scheme is quite high, so you can really see how much we love long weekends. Seriously, all company's HR should read this and see if this is applicable to their organisation.

(3) Wifey has been busy helping to research and email the interior designers/renovators for the new home. Yesterday, we met one good one (strongly recommended by my colleague). My wife shared with him on her ideal black colour theme house (to my horror).
To sum everything up and "help" the Intrior Designer decide easier, I jokingly told him this.
"My wife loves black, but I am not very for it. But seeing her happy will make me happy. And by the way, I am the one who's paying."

About the Author: Shingo T likes Wifey to knows how much he appreciates her for helping with the research on the interior designers, so he can have more time to kill monsters, gain experience, level up and save the world from the Scourge.

I am used to bringing laptop home. I am on call :-(

Working 9 hours a day is OK. But 10 hours or more productivity will decline...

HB:
haha, don't say like that lah. =p

KS:
Agree with ya on the diminishing returns of long working hours.
Recall this little study about how napping 10-20 mins in the mid of workday actually helps to improve productivity by leaps and bound.

Yeh avoid black.

It's been shown that black rooms have a negative effect on your mood.
