Week III of Bronconess
October 19, 2014

Yes, I am once again uncreative with using the same title for the third week straight. I promise I will think of a better title next week!

This quarter must be the quarter of videos! I had to edit and narrate two videos for two different classes this week. One of the videos was about how the ERP software we use at work improves the workload for Computer Information Systems (CIS). It’s perfect because the work experience I learned over the summer helped a lot! The other video was for my organizational behavior class where there were 10 skits about power contingencies and influential powers. Both videos turned out great!

Networking = Important

From the clubs and fundamentals to CIS class I’m in, I learned the emphasis of why networking is important. You never know what will happen in the future and that one person sitting across from you in class who you never talk to can end up being your employer; or it can be vise versa where you’re the employer instead. It’s amazing how the department has a vast network of professionals who were CIS graduates. Before this, I did some basic networking on my own such as meeting peers who are also into cyber security and so on.

Sahbu Shabu Round II

On Friday, my boyfriend and I went to Jazz Cat for shabu shabu to celebrate our 27 months. It’s a bit of an early celebration because there’s a thing at Buffalo Wild Wings next week. This time around, I ordered the Beef platter T-Rex (more meat and less veggies) again along with an order of fish ball with roe for us. The fish ball was amazinggggg. I need to find a market that sells these!

I prepared a small plate with salmon sashimi and salmon eggs last Sunday. It has been a while since I prepared one of these and it was delicious ☺.

Living at school is great because there are some awesome food places nearby! The only trade-off is that we don’t have Porto’s Bakery or Sprinkle’s Cupcakes nearby :(. There are a lot of tea house/boba places nearby that sells awesome drinks.

    Ah yes, networking. I need to make the most of my internship and network while I can. I’m not very social so I find it hard, but I have to do it. Huhu.

    Congratulations on 27 months! That’s awesome. Here’s to many more, yeah? 😀

    This food looks so delicious!!

    Yes, networking is very important but I’m always too shy to do so. I need to get out there and network with others. You never know what you’ll make of yourself or someone else.

    Networking is so important, but these days it seems harder to do so with all the rules in place at companies to try and make things fair (at least from what I’ve heard here in Ontario). Congrats on 27 months, that’s so sweet! I’m glad you were able to take time to celebrate and hang out together! Those dishes look interesting, especially since it looks like raw meat, but hey! I could be completely wrong! Where my university is/where I’m living right now there is a lot of exchange studies that love bubble tea so it’s extremely popular here, I just can’t seem to get past it though to somewhat like it! I’m glad you can though! 🙂

    I’m glad the videos turned out great!

    Networking can help a lot when it comes to finding a job. Knowing someone often gives an advantage when applying for a job or sometimes you wouldn’t know about a certain job opening without someone reaching out to you.

    Happy 27 months anniversary! All of the food looks tasty 🙂 I liked living on campus because of all the nearby food options too. Opening a restaurant near a college seems like good business!

    what video editor are you using? why do i get the feeling you’re using final cut pro to edit them because you’re uh, a mac user, aren’t you? ….wait, i don’t know why i thought so.

    shabu shabu~ *o* aww you make me wanna have shabu shabu now. i forgot when was the last time i went out for shabu shabu. nowadays, the shabu shabu i have is homemade, with my mom buying the fish balls and stuff and we all cook it at home. weird thing is, my mom mixes sukiyaki sauce and soy sauce for our seasoning -__-;; she doesn’t care if sukiyaki and shabu shabu are slightly different LOL she’s like, “as long as it tastes good for my fish balls, i don’t care” :))

    i need to tell her to cook sukiyaki next, instead of shabu shabu TAT we never had sukiyaki before and i really want that. restaurants in here all have a “suki” name at the end but they all serve shabu shabu instead of sukiyaki wtf -__-;; they have no idea that sukiyaki is not shabu shabu.

    OMG THE SALMON SASHIMI AND THE EGG. SO BEAUTIFUL WTH. you arranged them yourselves!? WHAT THE FISH I AM SO JEALOUS!! the other day i saw such “rose shaped” salmon sashimi and i thought they’re fresh salmon sashimi…when i ate them, turned out they had some cheese stuffing inside… EWW DISGUSTING. i regret taking lots of them during the wedding invitation. they taste so disgusting *shudders*

      I use both a Mac (on the go) and Windows (home). This time around, I used Sony Vegas Pro. It works wonder!

      Shabu shabu is deliciousssss. Though I try to preserve it for special occasions so I don’t get burnt out *o*. Have you ever tried fish balls with roe inside? Those are delicioussss, You must find a store that sells it!!!! Put that in your food bucketlist!

      And yes I arranged the salmon sashimi myself :D. I got a fillet of salmon sashimi, sliced them, and rolled them up. Grr, it would’ve been more better if there’s salmon sashimi instead of that cheese-thingr }:o

    I am glad to hear that the videos turned out really great and that your work experience also helped with them too. 😀

    You do never know what someone is going to do in the future, especially if you are all in the same kind of field and same location. I guess that is why you should treat everyone as you would want to be treated, unless they are really rude. >.<

    Mmmmmmm all the food.

    Yum! My mum and aunt introduced me to shabu shabu several months ago, and I liked it! I’ve always seen it around, but I never tried it until they made some at home, and it was so yummy!

    I am jealous that you have a lot of boba places nearby! If I want boba, I need to go a bit further away from my usual hangout spots, so that’s a bit of a pain. I could try making it at home, but I’m too lazy for that LOL.

    And yes, networking is very important. I only wished I understand its importance when I was in uni! You’re lucky that you’re grasping that concept now. Keep it up! Like you said, you’ll never know who will be your employer/co-workers in the future, so it’s always good to have good connections and make a good impression ^^

    I haven’t had shabu-shabu since I was in Manila. It wasn’t bad when I had it, though I really think I would have liked it better if I had gotten beef rather than seafood. Having crab shabu-shabu style was a bit of a disappointment.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever been to the Japanese restaurant Shogun (showgun?)? I’ve only been there a couple of times, and it was amazing both times. Inside the restaurant you will be seated in a booth that has a fire-pit in the table. You order your food, and once arrived it’s frozen. You will then be instructed as to how to cook your food depending on how you like it. Pretty amazing. Nice and peppy waiters/waitresses.
