I was in touch with an ex-colleague on MSN today... I knew that she got this other education-sector related job several months back, but I didn't know till today the dark side of the job.
We had a great time working for the same organization till last year... and we had to part, now scattered. I do regret that this new organization is not any better for her than our previous employer. Sighs. I hate it when it's "dark" and evil in education field.
Do you know that it is illegal in Singapore to work if you are a Student Pass holder? If I were to run my own business, establish my own private school, and told the students I recruited from other countries that they could work in Singapore while they study in my school, what would you call me?
Got a call from my Germany-based supervisor today and talked over the phone for some 1.5 hours, I couldn't but think through of what I am doing... and what I am aspire to be.
What are You teaching me? What have You been trying to show me?
As the wickedness presents in every single workplace, how could I actively promote changes?
The beautiful and handsome models that we often see in the magazines or on TV or put up high there on the billboards are not as perfect as what they are portrayed to be.
Photoshop is a technology that works like magic, isn't it? =)
Throughout millions of years of human race, I think we have not changed much... we still sin, do the same mistakes, we say the wrong words, we have the wrong motivations for doing the good things...
We could do any "magic" on our lives and it would help you to conceal some REAL things beneath. We can do anything that we like in life, anything. At the same time, we can deny the existence of a divine Creator as we live our own lives, being the boss of our own fate.
Millions of people are doing it, billions more have done it. Nothing much new.
And you know what... our Creator does not change at all, too! He still hates sin, He is still all-knowing, He is still loving us =) and longs for us to turn to Him.
