Staving off thoughts of walking into the office and starting the gruelling weekday crunch once again, a Singaporean man said he is interrupting his constant sense of dread this long weekend with conscious sporadic thoughts of carefree pleasure.

“I’d catch myself thinking about starting work in the office and immediately insert thoughts of how I am totally enjoying this moment in this long weekend,” Xiang Bu Kai, a local, said.

“It’s a coping mechanism and I’m sure I’m not the only one out there consciously doing this every 15 minutes or so.”

Sources familiar with the situation who are employed in the same office as the man said he is consciously interrupting his regular work week with thoughts of the carefree things he is going to do during the next long weekend that is coming up.

Long weekend, every weekend.

Singaporeans from all walks of life are rejoicing as the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has just released the list of 11 public holidays for 2015.

And there will be seven 3-day long weekends next year.

However, for one Singaporean man, he believes every weekend will be a long weekend for him next year.

Baey Kai Chu, a 53-year-old local, said: “I just saw my boss hire two Southeast Asians into the company. I think I’m about to get retrenched before this year is up.”

“While most Singaporeans will have seven long weekends in 2015, I think I will have 52.”

Baey said he does not expect to be hired again anymore and would be exploring Singapore more when he has free time after he is done with work.

He said, forlornly: “I will go around my estate picking up cans and old cupboard.”
