Saturday, buffet at Rasa Sayang

slurp slupr...i am feeling excited. can't wait till tomorrow. i'm going to rasa sayang hotel for a buffet dinner. and the great news is that it is totally FOC!!! how wonderful...lolz...

the dinner is meant for the SA CONS TS only. but they invited Chin, Yen and Mich to join them for the dinner. Chin can't make it so gaya will replace him. and just so happen Yen also can't go as she has a birthday party to attend to. So she asked if i wanna go. oh boy, i will never say no to food. especially to rasa sayang which i long to go since early of the year. wakakakakaka! how lucky can one be. it's freaking expensive it costs bout RM140++ per pax for the buffet dinner. way too extragavant for me to spend like dat.

i'm kinda broke and will continue to be broke for the next few months. reason? simple...too many activities d la...cannot tahan. last mth went to malacca, sept goin to hatyai with colleagues, nov my 1st anniversary with Gene, cameron highlands with the musketeers and partners, dec G's royal day and not to die? pls tell me...@@

any sponsors? lolz....

My condolences

life is really very fragile, ain't it? my colleague's dad passed away suddenly. not sure why though. she isn't close to me, but she's a nice girl.

sudden deaths are hard to accept. i truly understand how it feels. been through it 8 years ago. the pain and shock take a long while to sink in and disappear.

to the people out there, please treasure your lives. live it to the fullest. you may stumble, you may fall, but this is your life experience. be it good or bad, appreciate every single thing that happens to you cos it happens for a reason; appreciate every single life, cos life is just too precious.

had my 1st interview with artwright about 2 weeks ago. the position i'm applying for is called the business executive. sounds canggih aint it? to simplify it, the JD revolves around sales, cust service, pre and post sales. to further simplify it, in hokkien we call it pao suah pao hai, PSPH. in addition to the mentioned, i would be sorta considered as an individual contributor as well where i have to kinda motivate the technical team for further improvement, contribute ideas on how to improve the business processes and the like, and the list shall go on itself from here.

the JD is actually interesting if i do not have to do any sales. i mean not only i can learn about the business but i can also expand my network from here. and it is really like running my own business.

at 1st i thought i was not shortlisted as i did not get any call from kelly's within the stipulated time frame. out of the blue, i received an email from Sheela telling me to go for the second interview on Monday 23/6/08 during my lunch hour. told me it wasn't gonna take long as this interview is only to discuss the salary package. well, no harm attending and see what artwright offers me right?

to cut a long story short, i asked for rm2800 and guess what they offered me; RM1900 + RM250 (car maintenance) + RM250 (car petrol; under negotiation with HQ so it's not confirmed) + RM0.35/ km (if i travel out from Juru toll) + micellaneous expenses incur for meeting up with customers + 1% commission on the total sales. i think here think there, it's not worth it. i mean i'm not really keen on the job as it involves sales, so why do i wanna take the offer if i'm not happy with the pay right? the basic is really low. i agree i do not have any sales exposure, but the basic is a bit too low for me.

my dad kinda indirectly hinted to me that he does not want me to take up the offer. he said sales is not an easy thing to do. apart from that, my ex manager also said that it is not easy to sell office equipments. come to think of it, how many times does a company need to change the office equipment in a year? i know if there is a project i can earn up to 5 figures in a month, but am i really fit to be a sales consultant? I seriously dubted it. Not that I am not confident of myself but frankly speaking i never like sales people. and i really can't imagine being one myself.

and the job is not only about sales, i also need to build rapport with my clients and suppliers. i know if i take up this job there is a vast oppurtunity for me to grow and learn, but i just can't convince myself to do it. i don'tk now, maybe i have already slipped into the comfort zone that i'm trying hard to avoid.

conclusion is, i will reject the offer. i'm in no rush, so let's look around and who knows there may be better job opportunities out there for me *wink wink*

it's getting bored

i wonder how would all my friends feel right now. i'm really getting bored with my job. i know i should not be complaining much as I am lucky i have a job that could put food on the table. but what i am doing at the moment does not give me satisfaction. i thought money is the main motivator but it seems like it is not enough. among my friends, i would say i earn the most. i thought i should be very happy and contented with what i have but heck i am not at all. am i asking too much? sigh...only god knows what went wrong.

i'm supposed to be busy doing my work but i am just so tired of it all. been staring at the screen since i log in this morning. i know everyone is doing the same thing but i guess to a certian extent at least they enjoy what they are doing?? sorry for all these grudges but can't help it. it's almost the time of the month if you know what i mean.

enough said, i gotta get back to work.

Love Takes Time
Love Makes Time
Now is the Time.

Love can touch us one time
and last for a lifetime,
and never let go till we're gone.

Love vanquishes time.
To lovers, amoment can be eternity,
eternity can bethe tick of a clock.
Across the barriers of time
and the ultimatedestiny, love persists,
for the home of the beloved, absent or present,
is always in the mind and heart.
Absence does not diminish love.

If it is your time, love will track you
down like a cruise missile.
Only our love hath no decay;
This, no tomorrow hath, nor yesterday,
Running it never runs from us away,
But truly keeps his first, last,
everlasting day.

We always believe our first love is our last,
and our last love our first.

How do you develop a relationship?
One moment at a time!

We are not the same persons this year as last;
nor are those we love.

It is ahappy chance if we, changing,
continue to love a changed person.
