My desktop – day 2

What a lovely Sunday! Blue sky, sunshine, wind breeze – I could only enjoy at the balcony of my home, without wearing a mask.

Having been working from home for almost 2 months, the plan for Q1 was not executed in full as scheduled. It is high time to come up with a revised, realistic plan, if we are still keen to meet the annual targets. The challenges remain though with the uncertainly of how long the impacts of the virus outbreak is going to last. Who knows, anyway!?

Of course, I don’t have a crystal ball. But I do have a compass of Chinese astrology, though. Surprise? Staring at the luopan left on my desktop, I went into a deep thinking, recalling a conversation with a Feng Shui master not too long ago.  He mentioned about our entering into the so-called “9th Era” (Year 2024-2043) in the 180-year cycle. “What is the next big thing for the next 20 years, I asked.  The Feng Shui master replied, “Our time will be migrating from the “Era of Land” to the “Era of Fire”.  According to the five-element philosophy, we shall keep an eye on the sectors that can potentially be benefited from fire.”  Below are sectors he mentioned:

  • electronics,
  • high-tech, networks, information and communication,
  • medicine,
  • oil extraction,
  • electricity, natural gas,
  • chemistry,
  • solar energy,
  • psychology,
  • heart and eye technology

Are you involved in any of these industries?  I think it may be time for me to downsize some of the businesses that are not on the list, and, develop those which are?

Cathay Pacific CX offering club points relief for Diamond, Gold, Silver and Green Members

While I was thinking if CX would extend the 12-month period for my Diamond membership renewal due to the virus outbreak, I received an email from them offering club points relief and extending elite club member benefits.

According to their letters, CX members shall get club points relief per month in February, March and April 2020, based on their current tier:

  • Diamond 140 club points (total 420 club points for 3 months)
  • Gold 65 club points (total 195 club points for 3 months)
  • Silver 30 club points (total 90 club points for 3 months)
  • Green 10 club points (total 30 club points for 3 months)

For me, it is good news as I will then have in my account about 1,000 points by the end of April, and be only 200 points away from membership renewal.  However, there are at present so many travel bans and flight cancellations around the world, I am not sure if I will be able to make those 200 points in time.

See how it goes.  Hope things go well for all of us!
