Wake me up at …

Posted: June 28, 2010 by iJose in Life, People, Work

I’m leading a life where time is of an essence, and I believe that most, if not all, of us are the same. So, people invented clocks, (like wall clocks, or Big Ben clocks), watches (hand watches :p), and of course, alarms.

My input here is about alarms, what i personally do is that readjusted my computers, laptops, mobiles, car clocks timings 7 minutes earlier so that i get to be a head of time, or at least, trying to.

I set my room alarm to 05:48 in the morning. Why not 05:50 or 06:00 ? well, because the other numbers have the exact same right as the zeros or fives have.

Therefore, this is an official open invitation from La7tha Shway people to start using the sevens, threes or even the ones in your alarms.


Letter to (blank)

Hello (blank),

I hope this letter finds you well.

I’d like to bring to your attention the fact that I refuse to use the word ‘Dear’ in my work correspondences, no matter who you are. I don’t mind if you use it to address me, but I mind me addressing you with it. I feel it’s intimate. “Dear (blank)” or “Dear (blanka)”. I’m sorry, but you’re not dear to me. So why pretend like you are? You’re just my colleague or a person I work with via emails who I’ve probably never seen face-2-face, or maybe just once or twice. I prefer to stick with non-intimate words of greetings such as “Hi (blank)”, “Hello (blanka)”, “Good morning (blank)”. At least these are sincere greetings.

Anyway (blank), no offense. I still think you’re cool to correspond with.

Best regards,

a la Mocha
