7 Month Old

Time flies. Sharvani is already 7 month old. Life has changed drastically after her arrival. I have started a blog specific to her and couldn’t update due to my laziness. Hope to keep my blogs going and grow along with her.

Is it time to Quit my Job

22nd October 2007, I joined Credit Suisse as a Business Objects consultant. Its been 6 years and it takes no genius to confirm that its time to hang my boots here. But before I do that I wanted to think about the genuine reasons as why I want to quit.



Every morning I wake up and think twice to go to office.

I really dislike my boss and his boss attitude towards me.

My skills are not being tapped since long time.

I have been doing the same stuff for 6 years and I do not see any more challenges

I feel I am doing more work than what I am being paid for

Apart from the above reasons, the most important is that I am living in a comfort zone and I feel I am stuck in this place. A feeling of complacency has creeped in.

6 Years & Counting!!!

Today is the day when I first left my parents. Today is the day when I first started living independently. Today is the day when I landed in a foreign land. Today is the day 6 years ago that I first came to Singapore.


When I first came here, I never thought I would be spending so many long years here. Just wanted it to be a small stint and leave to another country. Everyone asked me if I am settling here and if I liked it. The answer is NO. Definitely I would not settle in Singapore and the only reason I liked it is for the proximity to India and many other travel destinations.


Now the next question would be what made me stay for so long. I do not have a definitive answer for that. I have been surrounded by very good people which made my stay comfortable. Travel bug has bit me and wanted to cover Southeast Asia before I leave Singapore. Also most important changes in my life has happened here which needed some time to settle in. Got married and now have a baby because of which I couldn’t really take a bold step to go to a new place.


So How long do I stay in Singapore? I have no clue. It could be a month a year or may be another 6 years. I would like to thank all my friends who have made my stay in Singapore comfortable and happy.
