About my job
Hello, my friends,
How’re you today?
Stephen, you don’t feel sorry about my emotion of your correction because it’s your job and responsible for everyone who is studying in English on BBC.
I’m immature that I couldn’t control my feeling about your good reconstruction. I have to admit that I’m not fully prepared to accept other’s opinions. I have to turn to positive mind right now. I know, your rewriting of my story should be required because I’m learner. You’re very kind adviser, help me to improve and extend English skills.
Thank you very much for your patience.
I was very busy at work until 4 PM. Now it’s much convenience to breathe and handle my job. I’ve just finished a meeting with a co-company. Sometimes it’s another work load that to have a meeting with others because it’s an unusual job after I made a plan for a workday. Now our company’s e-mail is not working properly because of the earthquake in Taiwan. It will be taken to fix working smoothly almost 3 weeks. I’m not comfortable to communicate with e-mails to overseas colleagues because it’s hardly reached. From last two weeks ago, I have to use my personal e-mail to send enquiries and instruction to them. It’s quite annoyed because they only knew my official e-mail address communicated at work, all that is not delivered to me on time, I have to resend it through personal e-mail. Clients also quite upset about late action or instruction from us. it’s not only our company’s hard situation but also all international company, especially main computer server is placed at Hong Kong, cannot work convenience.
I’m busy to make RFQ (Request For Question) from last week that customers requested us to offer lower rate than others and compared them with competitor’s quotations. When we provide attractive rates to each destination to them, the customers consider using our service for their shipments. I need to check much lower and competitive rates with several carriers and try to reduce to the customer’s satisfaction. It’s important to keep a good relationship with carrier’s person in charge of my company who gives me the freight. Because they also have several requests from other forwarders on the same issues that customers are participating RFQ to designated forwarders chosen by them.
If I have a good relationship with carriers, I can try to cut down the rates to my purpose. But it’s not quite often because carriers also have to keep their guide line. Is it complicated? Of course, the bidding makes me to get heavy workloads. After finished presenting RFQ, another things are waiting to me.
Are you satisfied with your job? What kind of jobs do you have?
Stephen, I love listening to music. I like all kind of music, especially rock music. I’m a big fan for Queen, Sting, Eminem, Alicia Keys and Britney. I certainly say it’s one of precious things that I bought many CDs of my favorite stars. When I was school girl, my brother played the guitar and loved listening to music more than studying hard. He listened to heavy metal music after finished class and then he changed his hair style as a rocker. Is it funny? My parents judged him because of naughty. My dad desperately brought up him until he was twenties. Now, he’s got married with his co-worker who is warm hearted and charming, and works for an IT company. He’s not played the guitar any more but he has another hobby that he likes to collect audio and very good sounded speakers. You know, it’s very expensive things to buy as a salary man. He’s addicted to buying that things as like you can’t stop drinking coffee in the morning.
My sister in law is pregrant. She's going to get birth to the baby next month. I'm expecting to have 5th cousin.
I’m addicted that I cannot stop watching American TV series, 24, CSI.

I went to Sting’s big concert in Manchester. He performed fantastic and heartbreaking stage. I was falling in love with his song while he’s singing. My seat was 5th line from stage. I could see him very closely. My favorite songs by Sting are Every breath you take by the Police, Shape of my heart, All for one, English man in New York. Who is your favorite singer?

Enjoy yourself, everyone!!
