Pro & Con of working from home

Cons of working from home:

  • We don't have streamyx at home, so I have to use the bloody slow 28kbps line, netmeeting or the application I'm supporting will work like a snail with this speed
  • Already, I'm working in isolation (my other team members are scattered all around Asia), not going to the office means I will miss out on local organizations gossips and updates
  • I can work in peace in the office (won't have a screaming Zara asking for mummy mid way through a teleconference)
  • no one in the Malaysia office will know I'm dead if I work from home all the time

Pros of working from home:

  • I don't have to travel 30mins (highway all the way) to my sis' or bro's plc to drop Tuyam and Zara, and then another 15mins to the office; then in the evening, do the same. Save patrol, save toll (RM3.60 one way) & most importantly time
  • When I start work, I don't have to feel already half tired (from all the driving)
  • I get to spend more time with Zara (since time is not used for travelling)
  • I can spend all my break time playing with Zara as well as to nurse her (it definitely feels better than using the pump)
  • I can check on the food Tuyam feeds Zara
  • I can take a nap during lunch time with Zara
  • The best part of working from home is able to see Zara popping her head into my home office occasionally with this big big grin.

Don't I love my job for allowing me this flexibility?

Having to work from home (like me) has joys...but sometimes a hassle if our little gal insist on wanting their Mommy.

I love her around, but also prefer to have some peace...So, i leave her with my mom and pop by on and off to look on her, nurse her and play with her! :)

I still prefer to work from home, even though it require more discipline on time management (which I seriously lack off), but can spend more time with kids lor.
But still...sometime will wish to work outside, I miss the days I work in shopping complex, hahaha...shopping all day long.
