Yesterday was another typical day at the office with the pressure mounting along with the increasing work load.
Things have been getting insanely busy for us at Nuffnang.
As much as we've expanded our team in Penang, KL and Singapore, the workload of a growing Nuffnang is daunting and the stress level has been mounting.
Even our intern Su Ann was beginning to lose her mind.
I decided that it was time we all had a breather so right around lunch time, every one of us left the office with our laptops and walked towards the nearest Monorail station.
We waited for a train and hopped on the first one to Sungai Wang. Where we all ran to KFC for lunch.
I bought everyone a huge bucket of FRIED CHICKEN and we all feasted away.
All of us of course, except our two Muslim team mates there who were on Puasa.
Now you must be wondering why we all had to bring all our laptops for lunch and risk being mugged and having everything stolen.
Well that's because.... after lunch, the whole Nuffnang KL team (All 7 of us) went to Starbucks to spend the afternoon there working.
It was a change of environment for once.
Rather than working in the typical office environment we have, it was a nice change of environment to work inside Starbucks with Italian music playing in the background and with a view of the busy street along Low Yat Plaza right next to our laptop screens.
Some of us sat in pairs but some of us, preferred the privacy of their own tables.
Like Su Ann here.
Yet, it was pretty fun.
There we were with the small Starbucks outlet all to ourselves, with our own little tables within talking distance of one another.
Of course even when working in the relaxing environment of Starbucks, some of us decide to have breaks with packets of Chipster.
We love the Sour Cream & Onion flavour for Chipster and since Twisties is a client of Nuffnang, it has very quickly become a favourite of everyone in the team including the two Nuffies in this picture Su Ann and Samantha.
Speaking of Su Ann...
You would think the interns at Nuffnang mimic the interns of other jobs where the intern is responsible for making coffee for the seniors or photocopying 1,000 pages a day.
Not at Nuffnang... eventhough we have a pretty cool photocopier.
Our interns here work independently on hands on stuff and actually play a very important role at Nuffnang.
The best part is that our interns from now and the past have all been bloggers themselves so if anything, they understood blogs better than anyone else.
Su Ann, just like Suet Li before her,
Lance in our Penang office
and Hui Wen in Singapore played essential roles in making Nuffnang what it is today...
But just when I'm getting used to the comfort that Su Ann gives me.. what does she do?
SHE DECIDES TO GO FOR A 2 WEEK STUDY-LEAVE!!!
So now I am INTERNLESS!!!
SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL SU ANN HOW CRUEL SHE IS!!!
