Blogger sucks monkeyballs

October 28, 2006 at 1:24 pm (Craps)

Forgive me if I haven’t been scrutinizing your blogs frequently enough. The thing is, I rely on RSS feeds to your blogs and it seems that the RSS feeds from Blogger are officially GAY.

Do yourself a favor and switch over to WordPress! Hah!

The choice…

October 20, 2006 at 5:10 pm (Announcement)

Thanks guys for the feedback. My decision was made a little easier after reading them.

One thing’s certain now – I’m in the running to go over to the States. I voiced out my thoughts to my manager (which I just found out also happens to be my company’s assistant GM) on my current status (i.e. PAKI LOVIN) and gave it to him sweet and simple; the Paki/India/Africa accounts will be handed over to freshmeat once I’m confirmed to go over.

One thing that still lingers in my head is the response I gathered – 100% of respondants encouraged me to leave M’sia.  Being the kuai lan guy I am, it’s either because they really belive that going to the States is actually going to be good for me/my career/my purse OR it’s because they don’t want me around.

HAHA!
Nah… just kidding guys. I know you all love me.

Speaking of love… damn I really broke the bank this time. More updates on that matter to come in the next post or two.

To leave or not to leave?

October 19, 2006 at 1:53 pm (Craps, GY 白 TULAN)

Nope. I’m not leaving my new job just yet.

It’s just that I’ve been given an option here, which some of you might have already heard of. Now for the benefit of those of you who don’t, my company plans to break into the USA market. I, as the freshest member of the team (and the only one who didn’t have any accounts to handle) was shortlisted to be sent over to pioneer the market.

Everything was fine and dandy – my mind was pretty much made up that this would be good for my career. I decided that leaving my home, my parents, my friends and my girlfriend for a year and a half would do me good. It was a hard decision to make, but I made it regardless.

Then, four days ago, the dude who sat opposite me decided to call it quits. He decided that he didn’t want to work here anymore and dropped my manager a nice one liner; “I quit“. As the fresh meat, I was assigned to take over his accounts, which I am doing now with much gusto. Oh, did I mention, he was handling India, Pakistan and Africa. Yay. Joy.

FUCK!

Knowing that if I didn’t speak up regarding my pseudo-enthusiasm for these accounts, I managed to slip in the topic of USA to my manager (who conveniently forgot about it). He gave me an option. In a week or two, there will be a new staff joining. If I decide to keep the current accounts, he’ll be assigned to USA. If I decide that I want to go to the States, then these accounts would be passed to him.

Simple isn’t it? Well, not really.

I’m having mixed thoughts now. Seriously. Now, lets just forget the Nigerian scammers and Tamil Tigers for a moment and look at the pros and cons of the two options.

USA

Pros

  1. It’s the fucking States!
  2. Never been there before.
  3. Free food, free accomodation, free car. Keep current salary, but collect daily allowance.
  4. New culture (pseudo-new), new environment.

Cons

  1. Away from home.
  2. Away from GF.
  3. Away from friends.
  4. New culture – NEW ENVIRONMENT.
  5. No seniors/colleagues to teach me shit.

Stay here and handle Africa/India/Paki

Pros

  1. Untouched market – lots of potential.
  2. Stay home.
  3. Might get to scam a new car from my dad *cough*second hand BMW*cough*

Cons

  1. No USA.
  2. NIGERIAN SCAMMERS.
  3. No exposure/experience of working overseas.
  4. GF going to Singapore to work next year.

Well… in a nutshell, going to USA is a pretty good choice. If I decide to go, I better make it known so I can get my visa done in time to go to the SEMA show in Vegas. Fuck. I want to go. But I dont. It’s confusing… no?

The Nigerian scam

October 18, 2006 at 1:27 pm (Craps, GY 白 TULAN)

Two days ago, a Nigerian customer walked in. He ordered roughly USD 38k worth of alloy wheels from me. Now naturally, I’m happy that I got my “first” sale here, but after going through the paper work and exchanging a few phone calls with the dude, I’m highly suspecting some sort of scam here.

Imagine him telling me, “You send me the invoice… but don’t show anyone my name card”.

Sounds like scam material to me.

But for the record – I havn’t been scammed by that Nigerian dude just yet. I want him to know that I’m quite sharp, so before you try anything funny… Hohoho…

Life goes on.

  1. You feel that people call you out, out of courtesy; not out of wanting you to be there.
  2. You feel that people talk with you, only because you talk to them first.
  3. You feel out of place when you’re in their midst’s, when you should actually be feeling right at home.
  4. You feel awkward when they dont call, but you feel even more so when they actually do.
  5. You run into them but don’t stop to say hi; and vice versa.

Taking cue from a corny Heidi Klum show liner, “..it’s a ruthless business, one day you’re in; the next day you’re out..”

Anyhows, I guess I shouldn’t say more than I ought to.

Can’t we get those old times back? Can we erase this list together?

The unstoppable force hits the immovable object

October 12, 2006 at 11:56 am (Craps, GY 白 TULAN, Tech)

No, Chuck Norris doesn’t die in this one, but it seems that lots of braincells have.

Thanks to my current squeeze, I’ve learnt to appreciate the simple things in Windows – i.e. FreeCell.

 

Without it, I would surely be dead by now. Heck, I spend more time on FreeCell than in my Excel cells, which is just as well; you know how boring starting a new job gets. What more, when all the accounts have already been allocated, and you’re put on the waiting list for God knows what.

Without FreeCell, I would probably be bored to death and bursting with anxiety (for my trip to you know where).

Intrestingly enough, some dude has bothered to take the time to analyze and construct the unbeatable FreeCell puzzle.

P.S. Try your luck at FreeCell game #11982, and let me know if you win it.

The clock is ticking

October 10, 2006 at 11:11 am (Announcement, Craps)

In less than two hours, my fate will be revealed.

Where I’ll be this time next year? Who knows.

Argh… damn stress.

Part of me wants to go, but part of me wants to stay.

Oh well… at least I can heave a breath of relief knowing a used BMW M3 costs the same price as a used Dodge truck.

The tension rises…

October 9, 2006 at 1:37 pm (GY 白 TULAN)

… and the string is about to snap.

I have been offically relegated back to the sole use of my Wira. The Myvi I so love is going to be taken away. Its finished. Its gone. Sold.

If things keep going on following this trend, it looks like the string might finally snap. I’ll probably take up the offer to get away from this bullshit. Sigh.
