Chinese Spring Festival Coming Soon

Posted by – January 28, 2008

Chinese New Year, also called Chinese Spring Festival (春节) used to be the happiest holidays for me just like the Christmas season for western people. People gather together with their friends and family and I can reunion with my nephew and playmates and we can “play” together and get the “Red packets” from my parents and grandparents and don’t have to get up early and go to school. It used to be such a good holiday that I was always look forward to.

while this sort of feeling fades and I could not find much happiness as used to. Perhaps it is a festival for kids as my mother told me.


Not a morgan stanleyer any more

I have been receiving some emails asking about the IT division of Morgan Stanley in Shanghai over the last a few weeks. First of all, I would like to clarify that I am not a Morgan Stanley employee any more and I can’t disclose any confidential information to the interviewees.

Morgan Stanley is a great company with robust technology infrastructures. I think this is quite rare for a financial company. People are smart and friendly there and it’s definitely a good company to work for! However, it is not suitable for everybody.
