You hate me?
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Today's event is something new for me that's because an observer in the office told me some girls dislike me. Dislike me or got irritated by me whatever I seriously don't know the reason. There were only 4 of us in the department. What is there to quarrel and dislike to begin with? Each of us has our own responsibility. So what's the problem?
As far I remembered my boss wanted the 4 of our projects to be handed in yesterday. But it cannot be done because my project was 98% completed and the observer's 80%. Despite of that, I decided to hand in the 4 projects first thing on Tuesday morning because mine would be 100% completed by today.
And we got the dumbest problem to handle in the morning: each project "should" be burned in a cd-rw. I was taken aback. Why do you need to burn 4 projects onto 4 cd-rw? I once suggested to burn all 4 onto one cd and have another back up cd for our publisher. And this girl was so smart ass to reply me "No it SHOULD be burned onto individual CD." I only went gag silently because I'm going to burn all projects onto one cd without her knowledge.
Even my senior in the HQ was advising me to burn all projects onto 1 cd because it doesn't make sense to have 4 CDs. I remembered telling that girl off that the CD-RW have plenty of space for the 4 projects ... and I seriously don't know what's her problem. I even helped her to burn her project onto MY CD and she called me STUPID. I told her straight in the face in a joking manner that Virgo is very revengeful ... whatever sentences that hurt them would be nailed in their hearts until the day they die. But unfortunately I wasn't joking when I said that. Virgo is really very revengeful. I read that in a horoscope page and it's true applying to me.
So back to the problem. The observer and I thought the CD-RW is too low quality that's why the CD can't be read and writtened by our computer. To solve this problem, I suggested we erase the CD and re-write. Aiyo... here comes ... the flaring by this A.
I was telling her to make a folder for her project and she was not happy. And the observer was telling her to rewrite her project onto the CD because of some complexity... and she really went all out:
"WHO SAID MUST BURN THE PROJECTS ONTO ONE CD-RW??!!"
I was shocked and I said our senior said before ... but I have forgotten that senior has only told me...
And her reply was :
"WHY WASN'T I INFORMED? WHEN DID SHE SAY? AND THEN???!!"
I just thought she got some personal problems. But observer said the problem was most likely evoked by me!!! He said I have been picking fights with the girls in the office. And I must have done it nonchalantly but hey I don't remember picking fights on them.
And I really tried to recall back. I only talked to them about common sense, if you consider saving the environment is not included la. But I only tease one of them. Definitely not A. And I have not been talking much in the office. I asked the observer again but he refused to tell me which issue.
Later during lunch, I was told off by the receptionist to turn on the air conditioner because my food is 'polluting' the office air and hopefully the air con would absorb my food pollution. Err... Am I the only one that doesn't have common sense in the office??
Oh well, I really just pity A for suffering because of me. I mean you can be angry with me until the day you rot 6 feet underground while me smiling happily everyday without knowing why. I just could not care less about this petty stuff. In fact, it is too childish to even care. But I seriously pity her from the bottom of my heart for putting her frowning face everyday when she sees me starting from tomorrow.
But what have I really said?
Renaye, you look so OLD!!!!
Monday, July 23, 2007
I had an unbelievable weekend by having no internet acces. Banzai, Streamnyx!
Another spice to add to my weekend was receiving a comment or would rather refer it as compliment that I looked OLD for a 21 year old. For a girl, generally, receiving that kind of outrageous statement might just simply put that guy's life in danger. But don't worry, that guy would not get death sentence from that girl, unless she is his wife or girlfriend.
So here, I'm going to add another golden, which is Never Judge a Girl Her Age. Just because she looks "like that", doesn't mean she's old or young. Because it simply doesn't matter. And who are you to judge her by the way? Even God says "Everyone is Beautiful". God didn't say that? Never mind, I'm sure God would be happy to have me as the spokeperson.
It got me thinking when I got that "compliment". It's never the first time or the last to get that and it really amuses me everytime I get that from the complimenter. But this time it really got me thinking. I was just thinking which one is important in life. Life itself or beauty itself, or as a human being, we want both?
Life itself as in being alive and able to experience things to discover the reason of your existence. Or people really just think life itself is very troublesome because his or her life is never on a smooth sail? Or you would rather look on the optimistic side and say "Bring it On" to all your obstacles that will just enrich life and build up your reservoir of knowledge, which in turn mix into wisdom? All of the more important do we as human being think life itself is precious?
Beauty itself as in getting "younger" physically as we are getting older. In other words, being young literally when you know you are getting older but living in a denial illusion that you can retain your youth by seeking treatments. I know, of course, beauty in this context can be more than pumping botox but I seriously ponder whether which one would people really choose especially in this materialistic world. If you are given an opportunity cost, would you choose beauty or wisdom? Would you trade in wisdom for beauty or the other way round? Or would you rather just stay in your room to fix an eyebrow for an hour without even wondering what is Life?
So do I ever get mad when people commented me "I looked so OLD"? Of course not. That's because I take action rather than sulking. I would just swift my priceless plastic knife over the commentator. And then I would preserve the head as a prize in my hallway. No, I was just joking.
I won't be mad because I'm grateful that I'm simply alive.

I actually thought of many things to write on this blog, but I decided to post something to ponder for all of us.
It's simple. No rapport means no sales. Got it? No?
If you are a salesperson and you didn't build any rapport with your prospect, you lose business because you simply cannot identify their needs and wants. It's actually more to that. This doesn't only apply to salesperson but many of us because whatever we do in our daily life, it involves sales and marketing indirectly. Don't you think so? If you have eaten at a great restaurant and you wanted to tell this good news to your friends, you are indirectly selling the idea to your friend to go there to eat. And mum was telling me how this applies to doctors as well. You got no rapport with your patients, you got no sales in the coming month.
Simple as that.
But my brain always like to think of something else. I was just thinking if that was so simple and simply captivating, why isn't so many politicians not doing the same thing? Easy, you listen to the people and cater to their needs and people will love you for good. You do the opposite, we make you go down and be forgotten for good. Easy as ABC but yet indigestible.
Never mind the politicians. What about businesses? H.A.H.A. Same thing and worse. It's the game of the survival of the fittest. You don't listen to feedback and improve, you lose customers forever until you see a yellow tape crossed on your doorstep.
Simple but why isn't some people listening to it?
Know Thy Neighbour
Saturday, July 14, 2007
My mum and I were enjoying our simple dinner meal until we were abrupted by an unexpected call. My mum became fidgeted and ended the call briskly. I guess someone died but not to throw that curt joke in front of my dad, I decided to put on a wild guess: somebody has been robbed. Aiya ... mana tau [without realising], I hit bullseye. And the victim was my mum's friend in my next door apartment.
The victim was not really in a panic form but I could see she was busy making some calls. Mum was asking her for some details while I looked around her neighbours. My heart was caught in the throat without realisation... That's because the sight of her neighbours were pathetic and I felt sad for the victim.
None of the neighbours came to the victim's solace. It was only my mum and I. Her opposite neighbour look disinterested. Never even bothered to join in our conversation. In fact, they closed the door at our face. What a sad sight. Later, they came out of the house without even glancing our direction.
I let out a sad nod and asked the victim if she knows her neighbours. It took her more than 2 minutes to answer my question. Clearly, this shows how our urbanhood has decayed in terms of being a community or simply a society. Do empathy, compassion and unity still exist in the dictionary of urbanites? Or 'individualistic' is the new jargon worshipped by urbans?
I'm thankful that I know my neighbours. It won't take me even a minute to answer who are my neighbours and what are their names. The sight of the victim's situation extremely saddens me to see how selfish humans can be.
I'm sure these people will only learn their lesson the hard way by being a victim without receiving any assistance or comfort from the people in their closest environment.
Doctor ah Doctor ...
Sunday, July 8, 2007
I went to see a doctor, correction a doctor not a shrink, today because i was sick for a week: flu and dry throat and higher body temperature last week and my right head is stuff with mucus.
The doctor is killing me. I explained what is wrong with me ... and he kept on asking me what IS wrong with me...
Me: I can't open my mouth because I got muscle spasm in my jaw...
Dr. Please open your mouth bigger ... [he puts in an ice cream stick into my mouth]
Me: My temperature went a little higher last Thursday or Friday ...
Dr: Do you have any fever?
Me: My head is stuff with mucus for the whole morning ...
Dr. You have any flu?
Geez... Correction: I need to see a shrink.
Spider spins a dream for ...
Friday, July 6, 2007
My workmate asked me to interpret her dream in Chinese terms... I mean like if you see a black cat jumping on a coffin it means the dead will be risen something like that.
She said her hand was bitten off by a spider and her hand regenerated. She didn't feel pain but was horrified. After telling me this, she asked if I know any significance of these signs. You know what I told her?
Well you know the Chinese always like buying those 4 digits at those shoddy shops after spotting car number plates that are involved in some accidents ... Well who knows if she was meant to buy 4 D and she could strike but she won't because she's a Malay. I told her she could always count on me to buy. XD.
I was of course just joking.
I even told her that she should think of lengchai [handsome guy] kissing her instead thinking of bugs ...
Well I have dreamed of a shark biting me, as if bugs would hurt me.
