It started with a bad stomach cramp, yes it is 'that' time of the month. Had to
drag my self out of bed as I've made an appointment with my customer at 9.30 a.m.
After driving my kids to the kindergarten, I rushed to KL. Halfway there my stomach was singing with the 'Please feed me' song, so I stopped at the Shell station to 'refill' (not 'refuel' ... hahahahah).
The customer's office was at Plaza Sentral, so parking was easy, but after taking the lift to 7th floor, I realized I went to the wrong block. Haiyyaaa...So, had to
go down, walked 200 metres and took another lift. Luckily the appointment only took an hour. So, after leaving the office, I headed straight to Bandar Utama for my therapy session (retail therapy la, what else).
I went shoe-hunting at a few shops. Guess, Sketchers, Lewre, Nose, Nine West and a few more (I couldn't remember the names). Actually I didn't even know what type of shoes I currently need, so I just 'belasah' try-try sesuka hati all type of shoes.
The shocking thing was when I was at Guess. I was eyeing a pair of 3.5 inches when the salesboy whispered to me, "Kak, yang tu sebenarnya ada Pig Skin." I was so tekejut gile and almost shouted back at him, "Apasal korang tak label? Ni semua ni Pig Skin ke?" The boy held two of the shoes and showed me where the pig skin was,
"Bahagian dalam ni je Pig Skin kak, kat luar dia tak." Then I told him, "Iyelah,
apasal korang tak letak label?" I was so mad, I left the shop without even thanking him. So, people ... kalau masuk kedai kasut, janganle sesuka hati pegang-pegang, cuit-cuit, try test without asking the salesgirl/salesboy dulu about the shoes' material. Nasib baik I tak try lagi kasut tu.
After having lunch at Johnnys I went straight to office as I was having a meeting at 2.30pm.
When I entered the meeting room, the CFO and one of the directors were there. I was already seated when I realised that, "Oh sh*t, this is presentation to management, what the h*ll am I doing here?" But it was too late for me to just leave as Mr. PM was already starting his presentation, and before that he asked me whether I have received customer's feedback on some documents. I gave eye signal whether I could leave but he was already focusing on his charts. So, I just sat beside Mr. PM's lady boss trying to shrink myself into a Smurf. Then, lady boss asked, "Apa hal kau menyorok belakang aku ni?" I gave my 'kerang' smile and said, "Menyorok.... segan.."
So, I had to endure the 2 hour management meeting, listening to the legal exec, the director, the CFO, a few other managers delivering their points and rebuttles. Actually during the second hour I was already bloghopping, hahahah...
When the meeting finally finished, Alf asked me, "Kau masuk meeting ni apasal?"
I gave him my famous murderous look and said, "PM kau invite, aku datang le."
Then, after that, when I was sitting comfortably at my cubicle and getting ready to IM with my online friends, suddenly I started having stomach cramps again. Urgh... I hate 'this' time of the month.
