Managed to get the MC for the day but I ended up working till 4pm anyway. Writing submissions and waiting. Mostly waiting. Elisa's team leader, AL is one guy that cannot tell the time. I have offered to teach him how to tell the time endless of times but to no avail. Guess he thinks that some things are best left unknown. Ignorance is bliss.
"When the big hands reaches 12 and the little hand reaches 8, you know it's time to bangun pagi, gosok gigi, cuci muka..."
Besides being tardy he loves to conduct long long long meetings. I really have no idea what they do inside the meeting room. While their team has only 3 staffs they take the longest. I've always figured that either
- AL is counting his pubic hair (3 hair, plait, 3 hair, plait...)
- He's busy interrogating his staffs on their whereabouts
- He loves his own voice and never get tired of it
- Wants to show his superiority
- Everyone has fallen asleep
- Something important and worth mentioning to his staffs
If you're going to conduct a Sales Clinic, kindly do a special one for AL so he can tell the time and for ONCE in his life be punctual and not tardy. Thank you.
I can sincerely tell you that one I black out / faint, NO ONE in the office will be able to carry me and they will have to drag me out to the clinic by my hands, imagine what a horrible scenario that is! I mean, a colleague blacked out a few days ago and she's like what? 44kg? And since it was dead weight, they had difficulty carrying her, I'm a good 48kg and I'm NOT popular. So hell, they definitely won't be carrying me ala Romeo style but most likely drag me like a sack of potatoes style or they'll drag me over to the water dispencer and just turn on the cold water in my face.
Another thing that leaves me shooting daggers at AL was because he got me in trouble with SM! He just had to conduct another long meeting during breakfast time and I ended up waiting for Elisa thinking she's going to be done any minute now and by the time they were done, it was way over our breakfast time and I was getting gastric pains and begged Elisa to accompany me for a quick breakfast and got caught by SM! Bloody &^%$#@! Hit lottery also not that accurate!
I'm also a little sad that because I was sick today, one of my cases that my team leader passed to me got passed to my junior. He had his reasons why he passed his case to my junior but the customer was super sure to sign so it hurts a little. But Mr. Team Leader did call to apologize and I do understand his reasoning so no hard feelings. *sigh*
Anyway we were suppose to head over to meet some new agents but thanks to AL, plans got messed up, not the first time but more like the 10th time. He loves last minute stuffs. Next time I'm calling him "Mr Last Minute" or "Mr Always Late", "AL" for short. It also helps that his AL is his initials anyway. Nyeh ha ha! We make effort to meet more new developers/agents/lawyers only for him to ruin everything everytime!
Anyway by 4pm, we were suppose to head over to Jones Lang Wutton to meet Shawn and to The Cove but I was too sick by then. Everytime I swallowed my throat felt like tiny pieces of glass was cutting it all the way down and in my head all I was thinking was counting how many strepsils have I eaten and trying not to hit over 8 a day.
But somehow we ended up in Gurney, looking at cosmetics always never fail to cheer me up! I love em'. I got some stuffs from Stila again, an oil-free foundation in colour B and a lip glaze pencil in Vanilla. Whee for me, BOO for my now almost empty wallet. There goes my carefully planned budget.
Left to Right: Kate Liquid foundation (shade c), Stila Liquid foundation, Stila Oil- Free liquid foundation, MAC Mineralize SkinFinish, Estee Lauder So Ingenious, Kate liquid foundation (shade b)
While some is relatively new, you'll notice that some of them have already been discontinued in counters such as the Stila Oild-Free foundation and the Estee Lauder So Ingenious. I don't use them because I'm pretty sure they've hit way over the expiry date but I had loved them so much I couldn't bare to throw them out, sounds crazy I know.
All this while, I have something for liquid foundations, I can never have enough and I count of Elisa to stop me. I know she's going to scream for me to stop buying any more and to throw the rest away but still... *sigh* sakit hati
EDIT: Was waiting for Elisa to finish her blog when I decided to pop into Friendster and read my horoscope. Here's what it says;
The Bottom Line
If you are feeling friction with authority figures, today, stand up for yourself.Urmm, does that mean that I'm going to be in a fist fight with SM today? Ohh Boy, even some people in the office notices that SM treats me pretty shabbily. Gah! So let me put on my boxing glove, beat the shit outta him and hopefully finally get some respect?
