Barang Barang in my Pouch

Celine is on MC today, haven't seen her for 6 days!!!

My desk is quite tidy already, so I tidy my bag.

Will start off with a small bag in my big bag, a pouch rather. Sometimes too long never check also dunno what I have in it, everyday carry in and out, waste energy. That day went kor's house, almost have to sit on the floor, because all his precious bags are taking the sofa seats! I hand itchy go and dig his bag, he is very worried, almost everything I dig out he wanted to peep, coz he also cannot remember what he has, i think he scares I dig tio mok~mok. Like last time when we moved house Darl dig tio one Yakult (still sealed up) together with his uni lecture notes in a box, and it's 7 years old already!! Wah! Just in time for primary one! hahaha! Btw, if it's wine then not bad huh! hahaha!

In this small pouch I have these :


  • Pouch - from Taiwan Shi Ling Market. I bought 3, one goes to mummy and one to sis.
  • Gastric pills and vitamins - to overcome the late lunch break.
  • Handiplus & alcohol swap - prone to get paper cuts in my previous department, there's once i cut my eye but cannot handiplus my eyeball.. =.="
  • Nails file - for emergency.
  • Hairpin - fringe is getting longer.
  • Thumbdrive - transfering files. Essential! I'm still shopping for a cute cute one!
  • SIM card - I thought I've returned to Dean last Christmas!! I just tried and it's still alive. Omg, did you ever check your phone bill?
Lastly is that decorative thingy - it's from my aunt, she bought it from China and these stones symbolised my 贵人. If you are Rooster, Piggy and the other one dunno is what looks like monyet, then congratz you are my angels! hehe..

Ok enough for now.. other compartments in the bag, leave it to next time k! Have to get back to work!

Carl's Jr

My GM suggested Carl's Jr for supper. The shop still open or not is one thing, the main thing is - Carl's Jr le!! Isn't it a bit too heavy for supper??

On Saturday, after haircut @ Orchard, Darl ta-pao Carl's Jr Burger back for dinner. I saw the burger already want to faint, and he says he bought two, we take one each. I tell mummy the burger is almost like the size of my face, and it takes me 2 meals to finish. Hahaha!!!

Though it's my favourite - mushroom de.. I think I also don't want to eat anymore.. booo.... so big ~

Boat Quay Lane

Guess where is this? While we were looking for car park at Raffles Place, we accidentally turned into a one way street, that gets narrower and narrower.. - A rare sight in Singapore.

What are we doing at Raffles Place? Duck rice lor~ what else... Hahaha... Darl's long awaited duck rice!

Dinner @ Cactus

Had dinner near Dean's house. He joined us too, with a packet of Ruffles, coz already had his dinner. I still prefer the one at Bedok. See when free go back and eat. =D

Effectiveness of Point System

I just realised that actually point system can be very effective - get job done faster!
For example tonight, one warm up question :

[btw.. If you have not read my previous blog on "points-system-for-men",
you may not understand what I mean.]


Am I pretty?
...... No answer ......
I followed up with another sms : Hesitating minus -100
Then he immediately replied : Pretty!

Then I SMS him again : Come out with clothes hangers to earn +200 points.
...... No answer ......
Then I SMS again : Accumulate 500 points to redeem for rewards.
Then he appeared with the clothes hangers, and started counting 200, 400, 600...
What?
200 point each hanger right?
No la. 200 points for one task la~
He put down the clothes hanger and wanted to go back to the room..
Hang them and earn another +200 points!
He then hang the whole chunk on the bamboo pole, and say, hang liao. +200
Huh! I mean hang the clothes la~
Hang properly earn another +50 bonus points.
After that, he went in to get more clothes hanger, Get more hangers got add points?
Got. Add 50 points.
50 points nia 不要也罢!
Wah!!! very yaya hor!!!

Finally he got to claim his reward : Nacho! Gratz!

@%@%@%@%@%

Actually even no points he will also help hang the clothes together de..
just that got points made more fun to doing house chord together!!
hahahaha!!!

@%@%@%@%@%

Kor Kor *Confused*

Kor Kor called me, Darl answered. Kor Kor asked,"Say Kia le?"
Kor Kor called Darl, I answered. Kor Kor asked,"Baby le?"

Kor Kor *confused*.

One day, kor kor asked, "how come everytime I call you, your baby answer the phone, then when I call him you answer the phone? Or is it that I call the wrong number?"

You didn't call wrong number la, but sometimes the person you call is busy ma..

(actually behind the scene is *push here push there* you answer lar~ you answer lar~)

Hahaha.. no la! Just kidding. The actual fact is that the party that you are not looking for is more kepoh to Know why you looking for the other party instead of him/her. This is human nature.. hahaha..

Biscuits

Every time lunch with Dean he will buy me a lotsa tidbits.. tell me this one ho-chiak that one ho-chiak.

Latest in store - Strawberry and Yam favoured biscuit.

Thank you very much wor! But please don't eat so much sweet stuff, even if you are not very fat yet, also cannot eat until so sweet, it is not very healthy. I leave it in the office for tea-break. =D

Point System in Office

Back to work after my off day and received an email from my manager regarding that I've quoted the wrong info to the customer. I recalled that the info was actually given by another manager so I explained to her. She then told me since this is the case she will not deduct my points. I was puzzled, what points?? She replied that it's for the measurement on accuracy of work.

I told her that the info is given by the manager I therefore quoted with no doubt. She says managers are also human, next time better refer to the website.

Wah.. so I'm not human ah? Also, she doesn't even know what's happening and she wanted to deduct my points! I told her it all started when the info on the website is outdated so I informed the manager and the manager forwarded me the 'correct' info to advise the customer, unfortunately, the info is also wrong!

Then I asked her, so you gonna deduct his point?
She didn't reply me, she must be steaming already at the other end.

In the same afternoon, I asked her something, she must be thinking that this is her opportunity to revenge, she replied me,"I beg your pardon??? I thought it was mentioned during the meeting???" I was shocked with her reaction. Then I heard her footstep, stomping over all the way from her desk. She's not fat la, but got some weight lor ~ manyzer ma! Then we both looking at the website, she said "Scroll up!" I scrolled up. "Scroll down". I scrolled down. She murmured... "That means they never update.." Then walked away.

Huh? finish liao ar? How can? I haven't recover from shock le..
I told her "I checked the website before I ask you okie!"
Her reply was "Okie no worries."

She dare not ask me to refer to the website anymore wor.. Hahaha!!!

Wah 2 times in a row.. so sorry.. but I never do anything le.. did i??

Okie la.. next time let her win la.. if not later heel wear too high minus point, skirt too short minus point, perfume smell too nice minus point, difficult ah~

N97

Darl got his N97! Finally!

The phone was delivered to our doorstep as that's the only option, they disallow self collection for online booking. We have gone through much hassle to get this phone and let me tell you what happened.

**If you lazy to read the whole story, then just
scroll down to read the useful tips in Green.

It was advertised on the newspaper that if we placed the order through their website we will get a good price. We couldn't find the option on their website so we approached their outlets, we were then told to call their hotline to find out more, when we called their hotline, a guy staff confirmed the promo and advised that we try again. We went online again and ta-da!! The order form is now there, don't know when and how, anyway, it doesn't show the price as per the ad in the papers. We called them again, the staff who answered the phone asked us a lotsa questions - where is the promo advertised, newspaper date, section and page number, after putting us on hold for a long x many times, she reverted saying "sorry, this promotion is on broadband."

O.o Huh..???? But isn't that a picture of N97 on the advertisement??

She put us on hold again, and got back saying it's for new customer only. Huh? We merely feedback that the website doesn't show correct info and wish to double confirm, how come she make so many funny guesses?? She smoke and smoke until Darl tak boleh tahan liao.. So requested that she put us to someone who knows the promotion. She says,"Sir just refer to the website."

Wah so senang wor! Visit their outlet and was told to call the hotline, call the hotline and was told to visit their website. Wah impressive!!

Finally we have no choice so we asked for the guy staff who we spoke to when we first called. She says she can't help because - all the managers are not available and the guy staff we mentioned is not in the same office. She says she's from the Philipines office and the guy is from Singapore office. She says she couldn't do a call transfer either.

Looks like we will have to play tikam tikam. Darl tikam a few times but no luck, almost giving up... Then guy called back and we have our queries answered within 5 minutes!

Haiz.. CMI..

Anyway, we learnt something that maybe very useful. **If you ever call a company that has a Call Centre based in foreign country, you may want to try your luck by selecting "Mandarin Speaking" option, you maybe getting a local agent on the phone... Erm... or maybe you get someone that says.. 您好, 这里是深圳.... Hahaha... not my problem..

Darl is very pissed right now, on the phone with a telco company.

Later I'll tell you why, dinner first. Tata~

Strange Yum-Char Restaurant

Came across a Chinese Restaurant @ Vivo that has a very unique name, so we've decided to give it a try.

At the entrance, we were greeted by a man in black. While walking to our seat, the waiter stopped and asked us for our names, quite unexpected but still we replied him, he says "okie" and continue walking us to our seat. I thought exchanging name is basic courtesy? He never introduce himself wor! Anyway, while walking in, we noticed a lotsa people in formal suit standing around. Ops.. we feel so out of place. Then, we realised that they are actually the waiters, looked way too smart for a Yum Char restaurant and non of the patrons there looked smarter than them! lol..

We ordered our food, and as usual I'll shoot whatever I eat, especially when I find it interesting. Suddenly, a very serious looking man in black approached and said,"Sorry, photo taking is not allowed".

huh??????

I've never come across such incident! Do you? Pls share with me if you know of any other restaurant that practise the same. Luckily he did not confiscate my handphone, well, he looks like he will. Who knows, he got our names and is not telling us his, and he looked very serious too.

This is the only photo I shoot. Look very nice hor.. but actually nothing fantastic. The base of the bun is hard and when we removed the paper sticking to it, the whole base came off and the filling that is in liquid form flow out and dripped all over the place.

Overall impression is - strange, uneasy, disappointing.

Queueing for iPhone

Passby the handphone shop and saw people paying for iPhone over the counter. Yeah! Stock replenished! I approached the queue counter to queue for a queue number, ya.. queue for queue number, see how good is their business!

Reached my turn and I told the staff that I'd like to buy an iPhone, but he said it's not open to public yet. So I asked him how do I get one as I'd like to get one now, immediately.

You will need to express your interest first.
Huh??? I almost wanted to tell him - Yes I'm interested.
After a short pause, he said,"You will need to express your interest online."

I was thinking what crap is this, buy an iPhone so mafan, not that you monopolize the market and you have to make your customers go through this.. I visited their website, luckily it's not something like - Please express your interest in 50 words that kind of stuffs...

Darl's company actually can help to get priority queue for iPhone, I was hesitating then Darl says - you express interest to me, i express interest to my company, then my company express interest to the phone company. Then when the stock come the phone company confirm interest with his company, his company confirm interest with him and he needs to confirm with me.. Wah.. so complicated!

Nevermind la.. wait lor~

2-men Scarlion, we made it!!!

Had a good rest after my breakfast, sleep until at least 1.30pm. Hahaha..

Met Dean online and he suggested a 2-men Scarlion, this was my second scarlion experience. First was a 12th-men team organised by Alex, and that's how I got my Scarlion Helm - very smoothly.

2-men Scarlion is actually a bit silly, took us very long. Can't imagine how he did it the last time, controlling 2 characters and managed to reach B3. lol.

By the way, I've finally obtained the Quest Specialist Medal. After the completion of 800 quests throughout the journey. =D

Shopping for a New Handphone

Dinner @ S11, Bishan.

Darl & I ordered this.

We ordered this for Dean.

No special occasion.
Just happened to passby Dean's house so pick him up for dinner.
At the same time to shop for my iPhone and Darl's N97.
Iphone - no stock.
N97 - ...

Talking about the N97 really make me angry. The telco offered me a $100 re-contract voucher and told me that I could get any phone from the outlet and offset with a paperless voucher. We calculated and that we only need to fork out $438 so we happily went down to get the phone.

"The voucher got write, cannot use on Starbuy item, where is your voucher? Show me." Walau.. your staff says paperless lor, show what! Then she says, now starbuy price is $538, very cheap already so cannot use voucher. If you want to use voucher okie lor we nett off the $100 from the non starbuy price, so $588. Walau.. the Starbuy price is lower than the recontract price!!

I asked her, then your company offer me that voucher for what? Then she proposed, or you want to buy Samsung? Samsung also very good, then you can use the voucher lor coz not Starbuy item. I only want to buy N97. Then you wait till the starbuy end then buy lor.

So the voucher no use one lar?
Ya actually the voucher no use one.

What the hell!! Treating your customer like an idiot??
I called them 2 weeks ago to feedback on this, no reply till now.
Luckily they didn't monopolise the iPhone market.
D@mn hopeless..

Gastric, rashes, hot , noisy neighbour, frustration, possessed!

Input Output Logic

Attended a Customer Service Course today, the trainer shared one of her encounters on an budget airline. (If you've taken one before you'd probably know that most of them don't provide free meal on flight, however you may order from their menu, food is not at all fantastic and it's not cheap. Whatever it is, no outside food is allowed.) The trainer says, during the flight, a passenger took out his lunchbox and started eating, end up scolded by the air-stewardess. The passenger who looked like a Chinese National didn't quite bothered by that and continued slurping his food, maybe he don't understand English?

Anyway, I was thinking, how would they handle such situation? Confiscate the food? plaster the passenger's mouth? Tie his hands to the seat? mm.. maybe not so violent. But I am really curious to know what they can do about it.

Well, since they started charging for the food and drink, maybe soon they will discover that they should also charge for the use of the toilet on board, a solution based on the Input Output Logic.
  • Passenger who spent at least $xx on F&B on the flight may use the toilet Free Of Charge. Please approach the stewardess with your receipt to exchange for an Infinity-Pass, valid for a day use of unlimited visit.
  • Passenger who did not spend on F&B on the flight may approach the stewardess to purchase your toilet pass. A One-Time-Pass for one time visit, or a Season-Pass for unlimited visit.
What do you think? Can we sell this idea to the budget airlines? Hahaha!!!

Actually in some countries paying for the use of toilet is nothing new. In Malaysia, very often you'll see a toilet manager sitting by a desk outside the toilet folding toilet papers, in case you need it they can earn extra. In Europe, we saw same toilets in the park, fully automated and no managers round. You just need to insert 0.40 coin and the door will open automatically. After the visit, the toilet will shut for a few minutes to do self cleaning before it opens up for the next patron. However, there is a notice outside that says each visit is limited to 20 minutes. I wonder what will happen when time's up and still not done.. will the door open automatically? Hahaha!!!

Actually paying for visit nevermind, but please at least make an effort to clean up, don't just sit at the manager desk and roll toilet papers. A lotsa time I dare not drink water when I'm outside, coz visiting toilet is really a nightmare. Be very grateful that you are in Singapore, toilets are not just free, but clean. lol...
