I’ve been trying so hard to make it in this industry and focusing on achieving career goals that I don’t even know who I really am. I don’t travel, I don’t have any hobbies (cont’d)
Does anyone own a puppy in the city? Is it hard to keep a pet while you travel a lot? What are your workarounds?
I have just immigrated to worth, Illinois from the Middle East. I have 6+ years of experience (proofed by a certificate) from Four Seasons Hotel Amman. Can anyone recommend a 5 stars hotel with front desk supervisor vacancy?
Nothing is worse than wanting a puppy and can't get one cause of travel schedule. My insta explore page is filled with golden retriever pups.
If you need UA mileage plus points, always transfer SPG->Marriott->United. This way you get a 1:1.25 conversion, much better than the 2:1 you would get with a direct transfer. Booked a biz class flight with this trick #lifechanging
If I (exec plat) book an AA intern’al flight for my parents (no status) and not traveling with them, will they benefit from lounge access and preferred seat selection? Or nada unless I am with them?
Any SF peeps who can tell me a good place to get takeout or delivery near Union Square (the JW Marriott, to be exact)? I kinda want pizza or Italian, but not sure if any of the good North Beach spots will deliver. Thoughts?
Just had my discovery flight and I’ve been wanting to go for my PPL for a while, just not sure I can justify the 15k or so investment in my current financial situation. Would it be really bad to spread my lesson over a period of a few years?
Is it unreasonable to ask for a 50% increase for jumping to a manager position? Would be taking on an additional department, 20% travel, and 2 additional direct reports.
Ecd: You’re not ready for A CD title and increase. Even though the clients love you. You win pitches. Awards. Etc
Ecd: please can you take the meeting my flight was delayed (again)
Was able to book 6 nights at the St Regis Maldives, Overwater Villa. 140K SPG points (so 420K New Marriott points)

Guns n Roses at MetLife this Thursday. Desifam - I’ve had to travel to India on short notice this week.

Hey all! Need a couple book recs for an upcoming beach trip.
Looking for a great non-fiction, relating to travel or world history (not just one moment in time). Could also be about the marketing world or memoirs of a business leader kinda thing.
Fiction wise I also like fantasy, paranormal, and romance. Some fave book series are the Black Gryphon from Mercedes Lackey, Game of Thrones, and From Jamaica Lane series. Similar books?
Travel and colocation are ramping back up. Finding it hard to get steps in. Hotel gyms don't have barbells and only have dumbbells up to 50 lb. How does the barbell crew here get heavy lifting in more than just on weekends?
I made a reservation for my family at JW Marriott in India and they found someone dirty clothes and underwear near lamp in the room, the Marriott people came and cleaned the room and offered free dinner
I feel really terrified where on their website they say we clean do well and this happened with COVID going on. Should they compensate me with points?

F for Fynd!
Fynd is mass hiring for multiple positions. Want to grab this opportunity? You can apply from here: https://jobs.lever.co/fynd?lever-via=PC2S6jYGXU.
I got offer from T** and the T&C is absolutely insane. It's most absurd and completely vague. It's fully designed to go in favour of the organization and none of the T&C are laid out clearly. I feel like their T&C are more of a slave ownership than an offer letter. Can someone confirm this?
Has anyone ever truly regretted going MBB?
Like, you wish you hadn't had gone MBB and you felt like it was a detriment to your career?
(Friend is trying to paint this as if this is a common occurrence and I am doubtful)

“Why East Asians but not South Asians are underrepresented in leadership positions in the United States”
Mulan was such a good movie! I laughed and I cried. I loved the way they portrayed mushu and overall loved what the movie represented. If you’re boycotting mulan, what you’re actually doing is boycotting feminism as that’s what the movie represents not one actress’s ideals.
Does anyone have recommendations for self-improvement books written by Asians/Asian-Americans? By self-improvement, I mean any book that has caused you to reflect or positively impacted your life to include philosophy or leadership.
Jeez. Thankful for these undercover cops
What would you do? I live in a town home neighborhood, & the neighbor 2 doors down has a guest that blocks my driveway/parks in my spot, which is against HOA rules & makes it impossible for me to get out of my garage. I & the neighbor next door have spoken with them but they still do it. I went & took a pic of the car to send to the HOA & she came out & said “she’s moving her car you stupid ass B.” The hostility, poor manners & ghetto demeanor is just so off-putting. What would you do?
Asian racism seems to be the hot topic so let's get real with another issue. It's going to get uncomfortable. Are asian women racist against asian men by preferring to marry white men and vice versa?
They're playing River Flows Into You in my building's lobby and only our people reacted 😂😂😂
For Manhattan 🐠 do you purposely live near Chinatown for the groceries? If not, is there another Manhattan area with cheap Asian groceries
Hello fellow Asian consultants. I’ve been mulling over trying to organize a get together for networking/fun but something a bit more purposeful as well...
I'm terrible at saying no, so instead I just say yes or be ambiguous enough that people take it as a yes. And I think it's taking a toll on my work recently. What's your advice? I'm afraid saying no is going to make the other person “lose face”, thus hurting our relationship.
I always find it weird when people ask if I’ve watched something on Netflix and I always say no since I mostly watch Asian dramas. Can’t even say I watch “foreign films” since that implies European
Any Teochew on here?! I am a lone teochew in the east coast and I heard others exist but havent actually met another besides one family who lives near me
Looking at how confident white males are on average regardless of actual talent or competency, I really wish I could be like that. (East Asian female here)
Happy New Years.
I’ve done this since 18 yrs ago, it’s a natural habit when you grow up in the ghetto lol
Same here (grew up East LA) - always thinking of ways to break and defend against ppl to protect myself
We’re consultants who love frameworks — so here’s one from the military! If you’re on high alert all the time, you will exhaust yourself and not be prepared for the threat. Focus your attention as is needed.
White is straight chilling with nothing going on. Yellow is spidey senses tingling — you see something out of the ordinary. Orange is potential, specific threat identified, and you are actively planning out scenarios to respond. Red is actual threat identified and preparing for active combat or escape. Black is actively engaged and in the fight.
If there’s structure to your awareness, you won’t get so tired. In the past two years, I have gone orange five times and red twice, and I would say I’m more jumpy than most. It sucks to have to do this, but use every tool you can.
This is what being a woman feels like
I am a woman and I’m already generally very careful. But this is a different kind of paranoia I can’t shake.
I feel you... I’m very paranoid. I’m most afraid someone will attack me from behind, which we know has happened already especially to our elders
Me for sure
Yeah same, and it is exhausting but it could save your life so it’s kinda worth
Second nature for me at this point. Situational awareness has either saved me or others from danger.
a white guy came up to my house door without carrying anything (package/pamphlets/folders) and i honestly got really scared. we didn’t answer the door
I think the answer to this may be dependent on where you’re located. I’m in DC and haven’t changed the way I go out since the hate crimes gained more attention.
That being said, it must be pretty scary being in NYC or SF right now. I’d be more more aware going out if I lived in those cities.
Same 💔 I’m in NYC. As a small woman, I’ve always been a bit hyper aware, but now it’s at the next level.
