Internships

Hey guys its been awhile since you have last seen me!!

In regards to my previous blog post “Part time Jobs” I’m here to talk about more Internship Singapore opportunities.

Just like any other student in Singapore, I’ve also went through my Singapore internship. Back in my poly days, we were all hoping for a good internship, a good company and I was really blessed to be able to intern at Tecmo Koei.



Many of you who are not in the digital media industry might not know this. But actually Koei is an international gaming company, which so happens to have a branch in Singapore, fortunately. Koei did famous games like Dynasty Warriors & Fist of the North star.



In which I was really lucky to be part of the CG Team in the making of a card game-app for Hokuto no Ken.



The game has already been released in Japan. I don’t know what to say but feel grateful that I was given this opportunity to intern in Koei. I was given tasks which are not like – pouring coffee or like easy touch up jobs. Whereas we were given like main graphics effects to do and treated like an employee rather than an intern.

People there were very nice and I had a very bad encounter with this senior 3D Modeler but well. I overcome it and did not quarrel with him, in which My superior praised me of having a high EQ. HA HA HA!!! (I happy not because my EQ high, means that idiot’s EQ low LOL)

Learning from a company as an intern was a very big milestone in my life. Compared to working part time jobs, I’ve never taken a 8-5pm (Office Hours) job before. My superiors were like angels siol.


P/S : Photo taken back in 2013, looking fat & shitty*

Really lucky and I remembered the HR was saying that we could wear anything to work, including slippers and shorts even bikinis HAHA.

My not so lucky friend Xiehang had to wear full formal and cannot use his phone in during his internship.

I felt so lucky, really! Out of all the internships in Singapore. I was given this great opportunity and it really adds on to my portfolio. I wish I could show you the works that I’ve done but unfortunately, I don’t have any of the files anymore. LOL (Don’t know where I threw them)

To sum it up, an internship was like the climax of a poly student’s lifespan in school. It’s like the finale and graduating show you’ve been waiting for ages. I also know that unlike my school, which is the great Nanyang Poly, which offers students and find internships for them, some other school’s don’t really have this common practice.

My dear friend Ebel had to find her own internship company by herself, and she didn’t even know how to start out with. Recently I was exposed to this new website called www.stroff.com which also offers internship opportunities other than part time jobs.

I know some of you might already know that this is an advertorial, which I would not hide, yes indeed it is an advertorial but this is a helpful advertorial to help you guys find your career perspective and opportunities, and I would say ‘YOU’RE WELCOME’ HAHHA



It doesn’t hurt to click on the URL to read on the website. For as far as I know, Stroff.com is run as a social project and is not making any money, and is funded by well-wishers who share the vision and objective of the portal's founding team.



So what are you waiting for? Go get some life experiences now!!



Seeya in my next post!

Part Time Jobs

Hey guys, Its been awhile since you last see me!


As all of you know that, I’m at the age whereby I have to start working soon! My adult life is hitting! I’m 22 and Army is coming to an end in the next few months or so, I will need to find myself a job in order to carry on with life (bo bian this is the life cycle) Time to go google for “part time jobs Singapore” ahbo I have no more rice to eat liao!


Speaking of jobs, I had a couple of part time jobs in Singapore throughout my 22 years of life. Which lead back to my first part time job when I was only 15! (HAHA not even legal to work but yeah)


My first job was being a retail assistant, in which I was top sales for 6 times! Coming out to work at such an early stage really gives me a lot of experiences and this nature me into whom I am today.






This really brings back a lot of memories! Working was so fun and although my pay was only like what? S$5/hour! (I guess Mcdonalds pay pretty dam well nowadays, still got CPF contribution one)


Looking for a job last time was pretty damm easy – I worked for NATAs fair before to give out flyers for one day for this stupid company. I walk until cannot walk anymore and suffered like this for the next few days in the end the stupid company don’t want to pay me – telling me that I wasn’t present because I did not sign my attendance (KNN the manager told me no need to sign) In the end my uncle called them and said if they don’t pay me, We will sue them. So they agreed to pay.


You see! Out there in this modern world got so many scamming companies.
So easy to ask you to work but in the end never pay you.


Another personal experience also recently, company never pay, late payment, late late late until now also haven’t pay yet. Keep saying will pay. NATO (No action talk only)


Also as time pass, recruiters are born to help us secure our rice bowl in which my bestie- Anton had a really bad experience.


He was told to sign a 6 months contract, to work as (I forgot the job title but nothing close to what he thought it would be)


He went to the job on his first day…. And TADAH! He got himself a construction worker’s job. Literally wearing helmet, boots like the photo shown above. He was only 17/18 leh! Poor him! He had to suffer for the next couples of days until I told him to just break the contract and disappear!



So let me introduce you to Stroff.com – a website providing part time jobs for students.


This website targets its audience which are – YOU, (Youths, Tertiary Students and Young Adults) looking for internships or part time jobs.


What I like about stroff.com because they share this vision to help the young generations (which is ME! YAY!)




Likewise, working is really fun to me especially part time jobs…







Memories, Friendships, Life experiences are born because of that! This is also why I encourage young people to take up part time jobs! Can earn money leh! Then you will know how important money is already!

I guess I have come to the end of this blog post, like wise it doesn’t hurt to click on the URL! You won’t know maybe your future awaits there!


Until then! If you find a job on that portal and took your salary, You can treat me go high tea to thank me. HAHAHAHA


Okay la! Seeya!

Istana May Day

Hey guys it's been awhile since you last see me!

It's another day of shoot at the istana! Ahaha this is what we do on labour day lol! The queue was crazy even when we reached there at about 8+ am!! Haha although I feel that it's quite disappointing because there isn't many nice background for us to take but nontheless we still managed to squeeze out something !! 


Haha honestly. It's just like that lor! A fountain, a building, grass and more grass. That's all! HAHAHA! But okay la that first photo at the building is really nice man!! 


Here's a yay to the success of our photoshoot! No la just trying to be lame because they failed a lot of times just to take this one photo!! Haha 


I took extra photos for myself this time because I complain that I always have the least photos LOL!! Most of the time I'm the photographer ok! I shoot for everyone de you see the difference a not! Haah afterwards we headed to Dhoby Ghaut for lunch. Dine in at Na Na Green Tea (I forgot the full name of the restrurant liao, oh but maybe I'm right) 

So here are the photos!! Hahaha we ordered their lunch set meal comes with their special green teas (which I didn't bother to take because we were too hungry) lunch set only SGD$13.90, normally their food range is SGD$13.90~SGD$17.90 liao drinks is about SGD$7.50/glass so for lunch set its pretty worth it! Or else you will be paying close to SGD$30 per meal, per person!!! 


Afterwards we walked down town area finding places to take photos but couldn't find a nice spot so we walked to bugis and took train from there towards JEM. Haha JEM has a garden for us to take photos so we took a few : 



Afterwards we found out that there's a nice staircase at the kid's playground! So we went to snap a few photos there too hehehe


After taking photos we went to sing song at Teo Heng which is ridiculously difficult to book (booked one week in advance) and sang at the top of our voices until now I no voice Liao HAHAHAHA!! It was a really fun day! 


Hope that there will be more shoots soon! Stay tuned to cheesy chips chips too ya :) remember to watch our bloopers!!


See ya!
