One By One

I know it is not easy to get a nice and decent job nowadays. A lot of people don’t even have a job! I am grateful that I have a job that I love, because not many people who have a job them self can say that they love their job. I know that some even said that their job is so boring and repetitive.

It was then I realized that there are such things as a custom made table tennis bat. It was in the afternoon after work that I got to play with several of my co-workers when suddenly one of them lends me his bat. I was amazed; it was so much different than the pre-made bats that I played with before. Read the rest of this entry »
