Hello guys,

I am Jens, the one and only European in the GetDoc family. Starting my way at Hamburg International Airport in Germany with -5°C I was heading up to the beautiful hot and humid Kuala Lumpur with 35°C. Almost got knocked out by the heat when leaving the airport. Arriving at my great flat and having a warm welcome from my roommate Michelle we left for some typical Malay food. Damn, that was spicy. Now, after a few days of dogged looking for air conditioned rooms and the diverse variations of Malay food, Japanese food, Chinese food, Thai food and Indian food on Banana leaf I really have started enjoying Malaysia and its weather. I especially love chilling with some sushi or “nasi lemak” at the rooftop pool after work.

Ambiverted thinker with a big heart and big dreams. Chronically clumsy but always emotionally aware. I truly believe that with every great opportunity comes great responsibility to do great things.

The questions that I always ask myself..

Typically just another spec in this vast universe of ours, am I special? If so, how special? How am I different or distinguishable from the rest? In fact… Should there be anything to tell me apart from the uncle who’s collecting the trash? These are thoughts I’ve had very early in my life. I’m not born with a silver spoon in my mouth according to what the current society’s standards are. I’m far from “poor” either. My parents have provided a more than comfortable life for my sister and I and for that I’m forever grateful. But how many of us have the luxury of saying this? How many have the luxury of typing what I’m typing right now on my iPad? Fewer than most think, honestly. And that’s sad. It’s sad because we often find ourselves complaining of the littlest of issues. Problems and dilemmas people actually wish they had. Can you imagine that? Someone actually wishing they had a problem because options alone are a luxury…

A hilarious guy who call himself “ah pek”

Your typical neighbourhood ah pek who wants to just have fun on the internet. Bold. Loud. Talkative.

 

 

 

Hello.

 

It’s me.

 

Intern LEE here; you can address me as Nicky! So for starters, I am currently a fresh new intern at GetDoc. I’ll be learning the ropes of how business in general works and to link it up with my major which is Marketing. I guess you could say it was some sort of ‘fate’ in landing myself here.

To put it straight into the point, I am on my final years in completion of my Bachelor’s Degree in Taylor’s University and part of my module requires me to gain work experience hence applying for an internship program during my short semester break. It all sounded like a new thing to me to be exposing myself into the real-world working environment as I had no working experience at all and it was all books and books and books. Theory here and there, but nothing really practical beyond classroom presentations. So off I went on trying to get a company of my choice. And then I asked myself, “Where should I go?”, “What should I do?”. There were a few ideas that come into my mind, mostly oriented towards doing the things I liked most because its better off doing something you love than loathe or you will never find joy or the passion to grow a better person in you.

Hi guys. What up? Before you read on any further, let me warn you that this essay may bore you. This is because 100% of the contents in this essay are about me. Either way, please bear with me because who knows, I might come across as interesting.

Thus, I shall now proceed to talking about myself.

To start it off, I would say that I am a person who is always eager for new life experiences and as one who yearns for adventure. I have always been one to take up a challenge and carry out that challenge to the best of my capabilities. Whenever chances are thrown my way, I will try my best to take those chances and turn them into opportunities for the improvement of myself.

The nicest person on earth who doesn’t mind being teased at simply because she is sporting and awesome. Warm, spontaneous and  fun-loving, Justine believes that every day is an adventure!

 

Let’s get to know about me!

I love the adrenaline rush of experimenting with something different, and most of all I value the relationships forged through each and every encounter of mine. I went for all sorts of classes throughout my childhood and teenage years from acting to piano to tennis. In my journey of self-fulfilment, I not only made lifelong friendships, but I also learnt how to draw a thick silver lining over severed friendships.

I love money. I like the idea of working for my own money. At the tender age of 15 years old, I spent my entire school break working at an education agency as a casual staff and subsequently, at a uniform shop as a sales assistant with a few of my friends. Even though the hourly wage was barely sufficient to cover my meals expenses, I thoroughly enjoyed the working experience. It was my first time learning how to maintain a balancing act between customers’ satisfaction and employers’ expectations.
