  • I wake up at around 5:30 a.m., not too early actually, because I’m kind of a morning person. 

  • 6:00 a.m.: I head out to the park near my apartment and play badminton with my friends.

  • 7:00 a.m.: I get back home and take a shower, feeling fresh and energetic and ready to start my day. 

  • 8:30 a.m.: Taking the bus to E2. I lived a little far from the city center so bus is a better option to commute to work than driving at rush hours.

  • 9:15 a.m.: I arrive at E2. Make some tea for myself and get right into work. Check mail and answer all the urgent emails from yesterday.

  • 10:00 a.m.: Have a weekly meeting with my Learning Advisor Team. There are many small teams in terms of the type of class they are mostly in charge of, and each team in the meeting will take turns updating or raising concerns at the moment so the team can help solve it. After that, we have the case study session, where they share their successful cases or discuss how to respond or deal with customers in difficult situations. As a manager, my responsibility is to give them advice on how to deal with such situations and encourage them to learn by themselves everyday and from all the failures and successes they have encountered.

  • 1:30 p.m.: Check and respond to some emails, and manage all the staff workload.

  • 2:00 p.m.: Join the taxi group to travel to D7 Center. Since staff are distributed to work in many centers, I need to take turn to go around each LC to support and manage them.


  • 6:00 p.m.: I take the bus and go back home.

  • 7:00 p.m.: I arrive home, cook dinner and watch TV.
