Looking Through Levi's Eyes: Live from Singapore!
A very belated good morning to all readers out there. My busy CEO work schedule has taken me to another continent. Yup, it sure is warm in Singapore!
A very belated good morning to all readers out there. I shall apologize firstly for my tardiness as my busy CEO work schedule has taken me to another continent. Where it was cold and miserable last fortnight when the cruel Australian winter laughed at my misery, it’s warm and humid from where I am today as I’m blogging from Singapore!
Yay! Singapore, a country where both my employees sought solace from the harsh outside world and grew up in. Singapore, a country where rapid modernization means going out for business each day is never the same as the previous, as both my employees seem to love exclaiming “Wow this wasn’t here the last time we were here!”
Yes it’s hard to believe that I, Levi Matara-Ng, CEO of Home and all of four months of age is a jet-setting and globe-trotting CEO. My business is growing and I am flushed with opportunities so I am taking my business to Asia. My first stop is Singapore and who knows where I shall be in the next forseeable future?
I have been travelling around Singapore on their famed ‘world class’ transport system. I must say compared to back home Singaporeans are so lucky to have a system that is efficient, runs on time, cheap and most of all reliable. Here I am waiting for a bus; I guess you can tell how excited I am. Just don’t ask me who taught me how to stick my tongue out this way!
I have been in Singapore for just over a fortnight now and wow dare I say I must be one hell of a CEO as everybody wants to see me. Now when I say everybody, I meant E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y. All of them have got an opinion about me. I’ve got random people whom I have never seen before coming up to me asking if I’m a girl. Excuse me, do I look like a girl? They follow it up with an innocuous reference to the size of my eyes, suggesting my huge eyes misled them into thinking I am a girl.
Ehm…surely there are boy CEOs out there with huge eyes, no?
That isn’t the worst part, though. In the last few weeks I have been absolutely bruised under my armpits as virtual strangers/friends of my employees Michele and John have been passing me around amongst themselves like it’s ‘Passing the Parcel’ game time. Their faces light up with joy when I’m in their arms and I often have to cry and scream as loudly as I can as if to say “Okay playtime is over can I please have breast milk again?”
My holiday in Singapore is tapering towards the tail end and very soon I shall be returning to Australia with my two employees. But until that day arrives I still have so much to explore and so much to say. Look out for the next article as I attempt to negotiate more sights of Singapore!
