This & That Including What Ails

Long Awaited Retreat With Clairvoyant

on January 26, 2017

We left the office last night in trepidation as today was our dramatic so called “retreat.”

To me, a retreat meant half work and half fun. 

Activities would be centred around team building, bonding and figuring out our mission, vision and values of the company we worked for.

So, we scratched our heads, awaiting Clairvoyant’s arrival.

Dragon Lady forewarned me to tell all of us to behave and not tell anything that would be used against us in business.

So much for spontaneous fun! It went out the window and we dragged our feet knowing that this was going to be a long day!

We dreaded dinner even more as this was the 3rd day this week that we will all shuffle home only after 10pm or till the restaurant closes.

The day started late with Dragon Lady escorting Clairvoyant to the office at almost 11am.

What was even more alarming was that Mr EX was invited by Dragon Lady to join us.

In his usual personable self Mr EX humored Dragon Lady by arriving but not without a grandoise speech that he was actually due to travel to Malaysia but because Dragon Lady called, he had to drop everything and come. He played smart to boost Dragon Lady’s ego! Bravo! I learnt 😙

On seeing me, MR EX said he had brought me Chinese New Year cookies. But he could not pass it to me under the nose of DL! Ha ha! 

He quietly brought in some tins of Chinese New Year cookies for her.

Mr EX is indeed smart in scoring brownie points with DL.

I was admittedly comforted by his presence. 

Clairvoyant was to me, mumbo jumbo psycho babble NLP. 

Neuro Linguistic Programming was to me passe! 

Mr EX also uses NLP and he once said of me “your skull is so thick that not even a bazooka could hack through!” 

This meant that my thoughts are so rigid or closed that not even his usage on NLP can penetrate and change my brain thoughts! Ha ha!

Politely 10 of us sat down and listened from 11am to 7.30pm.

What I learnt was the same message, love, anger, sorrow and happiness….commonality in all humans.

Hmm….Clairvoyant or really a circus act? In the spirit of fun….it was entertaining.

This was followed by dinner from 8pm to 10.30pm.

*Please see my next post for a sumptious vegetarian dinner*
