I LOVE MY JOB

smile when you work

My friend recently ask me to upload my qualifications up on jobstreet. She said that there a chance of getting me a better job or something to that effect. I don't understand why...does she not know that I work and I love my job? Gee...

It becomes a scary trend nowadays it seems that everyone wants to keep leaving their jobs for a better job. What really is a better job really? Maybe it's because I've never suffered job trauma but I really can't tell what's a better job as that's an illusive term. Does better pay means better job? Well then why can't people just be specific and say that they are after better pay.

Are you happy with your job? If you are...congratulations!!!! I am too...

But to alot of people who are not happy...well I think the problem comes down to...

How do you define your job?

Alot of people it seems...define job as something they do just for money...security...well I guess you get what you want...they get money and security...hardly any happiness...

For me..I define a good job as something I can do smiling and that is a job that you constantly see new things, don't spend your time slaving over a computer all day and that you do silly things...and hence that is my job and I love my job...

What's my job you may ask?

Well occasionally when I get a chance to act...I act...
I am no great actor...and I am very much learning on the job so I appreciate all the great directors who's given me a chance to be in their film...thank you.

Acting is really hard work...for any idiot who think tom cruise is just a pretty face...try turn a video camera on yourself and feel how hard it is...see what it looks like on screen...it's hard...you know what you have to do and yet when you do it...you want to do it without the pretension that you are consciously doing it....be natural...2 words...but damn hard...I think sharifah amani is a great actress.

That aside...I write...for the fun of writing....because I can write without thinking and words flow easily....

But as for my main job...I am a filmmaker. I make films as in I produce them from raising the funds to getting the team together and executing the film.I am also a corporate video/commercial filmmaker in that I produce a corporate film for a company wishing to showcase what their company strengths and history or to increase market visibility and win market share. I will advise on the idea, organise the shoot and get it shot for you....anyone of us need my services...email me at aelea.films@gmail.com

hehehe...sorry for the brief advertorial...but anyway...yeah...back to i love my job.

I get to see different things everyday...recently on a shoot at an oil palm estate....I met a buffalo so well trained he can walk when you say "JALAN!" and stop when you say "DIAM!" I was like wow...it's better trained than my dog footstool! actually i suspect footstool is intelligent...he just wish to tease me often...
Honestly there are times when I am super frustrated at work...tell me who doesn't get frustrated at work? Even Paris Hilton gets hard time being just the blonde...so yeah...I love my job...I think I smile alot doing it....

Dennis, my friend, partner in crime and good assistant will attest to that...

Dennis...you do love your job don't you? I mean how often in a job, your daily work include kicking an owl box so that the owl will fly out and the camera man can film it... =P


Yeah...alot of people say a job in the arts...you can't earn much...good...nobody fights for my job I get to keep it more secure...hehehe...but if you do like my job, you're welcome....it's always nice to have new blood adding to the fray...but before you do my job...don't just love it because I love it...ask yourself...do you love this job.

I'll end my blabber saying this....you'll spend half your life at your job...better love it...

Let's just say I enjoy my job currently. It's filled with the usual politics and what-not, but it is enjoyable, somehow. Though I know I probably enjoy another job even more. Then again, as long as I feel satisfied at the end of the day, I guess it's cool.

A better job is not about the money, it's about the satisfaction at the end of the day. Do you smile when you go to bed reflecting on the day, or do you sigh? Your job decides it for you... but you decide what your job is.

Chen Chow said...

Great to see that you are working on stuff that is your passion. That's definitely much much better than working for the sake of living or earning money.

Wish that more people would be loving their job!

I am actually a staff from JobStreet.com and I saw you blog about JobStreet.com .In fact, JobStreet.com ran a campaign earlier this year on the concept of "I Love My Job. Thanks JobStreet.com!"

I see Free advertising from Job street

Linus Linnaeus said...

wow...does that mean i can expect a check from jobstreet?

Chen Chow said...

Linus, thanks for your response and visiting my blog too!

Mark Chang is definitely a very visionary person, yet very down-to-earth. He is very approachable by all of us here, and even though some of us are very young, he would still listen attentively to our idea and motivate us to make it happen.

If you have anything you want to relay to him, do let me know. Am more than willing to be "postman".

Lori Ann said...

Nice post, it is like my blog. Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts on my "simple living or giving up" question. I like your quote "success equates to appreciateing all the God given wonder this world has to offer before my time is up...". It's good to love your life, and your job!

Alice Teh said...

OMG, I laughed so hard reading this post, I had to go to the loo to calm down. OK, I'm easily amused and entertained I must say.

Thanks for the brief advertorial. I say you have a very interesting job. No wonder you love it. I love mine too. It's nothing like yours (I sit I my desk and guard it. No, I guard the door of my boss, actually). Well, still I love my job!

P/S: I love writing and words flow freely for me too (most of the time...)

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
