What do YOU think? Should you have someone to turn to when shit hits the fan? Or are you afraid of approaching anyone at your workplace for fear of misplacing your trust and jeopardising your career?

On our way home from lunch earlier today, I was telling my husband about my new job and then I realised that in all my past and current employments (I have been working for about 3 years now), the only managers I've reported to, served under, and worked with have all been females.

It was recently released in Malaysia and when it went live on the first day, everyone went nuts for it. Once upon a time when our parents fought hard to keep mobile phones away from the dinner table, … Continue reading Have You Caught ‘Em All Yet?
Another short post today. I just want to say that my blog, Creator & Curator, is celebrating (on a small scale) its first year anniversary today. I can't believe it has been a year already since I started the blog.

So... I've been doing my usual web-surfing for some pretty interesting things to share with you, and I found some jokes. Book jokes, to be precise, and jokes that us book nerds would understand.
