Dead Blogger

A Singaporean blogger by the name of May Leong has passed away on 23 Apr 2007, just 2 days after her last posting in her blog (or her 1st blog posting for this year) - Pink May Flower's Secrets.

From her last posting, it was noted that she was going through tremendous pressure. She was running her work for HP, Singapore even at home (non-office hours and weekends). She did mention that she got no choice but to work hard just to sustain her income.

In the end, due to hitting the journey too hard, she succumbed to reason yet to be known but suspected to be pulmonary embolism caused by deep vein thrombosis. This is a condition that can strike when someone has been inactive for a long period of time, like sitting in one position. In her last blog, she also stated that her health was getting bad and guessed that she was pushing herself through in her tight work schedule.

Her last few words in her blog "I don't wanna end up dead for the sake of dough. The moral of the story is don't ever fall in love with your company or your job". Unfortunately, it did happen to her just 2 days later.

Been sharing with people that you MUST be happy with your current work because that's where you want to be. Not as a NO CHOICE situation. Next thing is majority of the working folks neglect their health. No one thinks that a simple exercise will help and therefore, might as well skip it altogether.
