Mama Piggy has come full circle

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The cat is out of the bag, or box, whatever...

Yes, I have decided to return to Caldecott Hill. (No, Mama Piggy is not a celebrity lah, in case anyone is wondering! ^_^)

I left the newsroom in 2002, and have been a spin doctor since. It was quite a natural progression for most media professionals to cross over to the dark side of Public Relations, so to speak. But deep down, I know my heart is still with journalism. And six years of handling the media only served to stoke the fire in the belly.

So, come end July, it's goodbye Shenton Way, and hello Caldecott Hill!

My friends think that I am out of my mind to forsake the current job which has decent pay, relatively sane and regular hours and good prospects.

Well, I don't care. The heart won the battle this time round :)

Yes, we have to go with the heart sometimes, Mama Piggy. Does not take a rocket scientist to work out why there are so many unhappy gloomy-faced folks out there. Despite their so-called good pay and impressive-titled jobs.

And when you tell them to go with their heart, they look at you as if you are from another planet. So my congratulations and best wishes.

Talk of which, since you left Caldecott Hill in 2002, I reckon you would have known some of my ex-colleagues -- that sport broadcaster. But not necessarily from the newsroom. I was there for 4 years.

It is a very small world, the broadcasting industry. Some went on to CNBC, Discovery Channel or MTV. Some went the opposite way, some.. you know the drill.

Would be happy to share with you who they are by email if you wish.

The Letter B
