Another month down and I still have not achieved much.
I havent been feeling great. Is it the macro conditions or am I just getting old and cranky?
I'm getting jaded at work, again.
While work is manageable, I lack bootlicking and show-off skills. I feel my bosses don't quite see the value I'm bringing. I'm not sure if they are too "smart" to understand operations and I feel we are on different frequencies. That would make it tough for me to get a good end year bonus.
Because of that I'm on the lookout for jobs. However, it seems like a "wrong" timing due to the impending recession and hiring freezes across the globe. I don't want to join a new firm and be laid off like what crypto.com did to their new staff.
Speaking of cro, it's unfortunate to note their downwards revision to netflix and spotify rebates.
I'm currently on their ruby steel member, and have been enjoying spotify rebates. Just this month, I received ~100 CRO coins given the dip in value.cro back in Sep 2021 where I got sgd100 for free. Also, with the continuous built up of cro rebates, CRO is one of my best crypto investment on paper (unfortunately because most are heavily underwater).
I'll wait and see if there are anymore attractive offers dangled by crypto.com to retain customers.
Singapore Airline sucks
I've always been proud of our national airline because of their top-notch service, until I experienced their call centre/customer service team that made me fumed.
After years of planning and spending, I've finally clocked enough miles for my business class flights. I was fortunate to have secured saver tickets and wanted to do a stopover. To do so, I had to call in to make my redemption, pay US$100 and the relevant taxes.
However, the customer service charged me double stopover fees and it has been an arduous process getting my money back. Each time, the agents said they are processing my refund and to wait 6 weeks. Until 6 weeks passed and I realised I was not refunded. Called in again and they said they are still processing it and will flag as urgent. No timeline was given because the agents are unable to advise as it is handled by another department.
As of now, I'm left dangling, unsure when I can get my money back. Utterly disappointed with their (lacking) service.
I am also wondering if monkeypox will become a global health crisis and affect my holiday plans next year 🤞 if it is, I foresee another headache calling in to postpone my flights 🙄
