Newbie. Me?

Working life…
So far, its tiring for sure…but an interesting experience and quite invaluable (and I’ve just been working for 4 days!)
Day 1: Newbie(s)
Arrived punctually, got assigned to my “place” in the office and was supplied with stationery and all the admin thingy – staff info, docs, etc. I tried to get a general picture of what I’d actually be doing in this job by asking questions and observing the others…
Apparently I wasn’t the only newbie. There was another girl with me. Only difference is, she had “previous experience”, I didn’t. Being newbies, the two of us “hooked up” for lunch.
After lunch, started my 1st lesson: Vouching. (For those with non-accounting background, that means to check whether the client’s, i.e the company being audited, information stated in their accounts matched what actually happened by digging up receipts of any docs that prove that that transaction really happened.)
Day 2: Still new
Again, did vouching the whole day but this time it’s to vouch client’s inventory, debtors and creditors. (Yesterday was vouching expenses) During lunch, the other newbie (let’s call her D) went to the nearest company bank to open our “staff” bank account.
Day 3: Made a new “acquaintance”
Didn’t go out for lunch cos I brought some sandwiches from home. But after lunch,I had my first stock-take (count client inventory) with a senior colleague (let’s call her J). And guess where the stock-take was…
A pig farm.
Yup, “YB turun padang”…hehe…but we didn’t count the “livestock” laa…just the other non-living stock (pig feed, medicine(didn’t know they had that!), office supplies, etc.). And throughout the “assignment”, got to know J a lil better. Oh yes, she dropped me back home after we were done too.
Day 4: Oh. So. Tired.
Yes people…tiring job but I don’t mind (much) cos it’s quite interesting. But then again, starting from scratch, EVERYTHING and EVERYDAY is a new experience. Hehe. But I am quite relieved that tomorrow (Good Friday!) I can rest (and go Mass of course.) BTW,I’m working this Saturday though.
There, just a recap of my worklife so far. Now, on a more personal note:
As you guys can see, this blog isn’t fully operational (yet)…I’m still “building up” the blog, piece by piece. One “piece” in particular is my “About” page…
See…I don’t really know what to put in it…(I’m not vain maa..hehe)…so,why dontcha guys help me out?
Just post some questions/anything you guys wanna know about yours truly and I’ll put the answers up in the “About” page…how’s that sound?
Personally,I think that’ll be best cos after what Arch asked me that day,I find that people can ask questions that you never saw coming! Hehe…
