thou shalt have stiff upper lip

20 Mar

today, went to the british council education uk fair at klcc, with fify and efy. yeah lots of ang moh. the american education appeals more to me somehow. preferring the twang over the stiff upper lip. lol.

ok it's scotland but it looks pretty, using the pic anyways.

then off to klcc, bought to kill a mockingbird at kino, (love you kino!)

and met ilman who treated us coffee bean. went for the usual, caramel macchiato (though i’m more of a starbucks person, thanks ilman!) .

and tomorrow, gallavanting around Kuala Lumpur with friends! yeay yeay!

eton mess.

28 Jan

eton mess is a dessert of english origin consisting of a mixture of strawberries, pieces of meringue and cream, which is traditionally served at Eton College’s annual cricket game.

yum yum so good i could die in gluttony

ironically today i shared this desert with a dear friend; who studied in a local institution dubbed as Eton of the East. 😉

harassment.

14 Jan

last sunday was the second day of my cashier training at giant plaza OUG near old klang road. as i’m getting my hold on being a cashier, memorizing which key does what on the machine, learning what are PWPs, fresh mark down and how to handle them (ain’t that easy) , this incident happened.

i know this sounds so funny but its friggin’ real, and i’m not making up stories (i have my alibi).

i was sexually harassed by a customer.












and it was a MALE customer.

shut up just read.

the story goes like this. i was helping a fellow trainee, who was operating the cash register by putting in goodies bought by customers inside plastic bags. it was lunch hour and staffs from parkson and other tenants in the mall flocks giant to get their groceries. (hey we offer unbeatable prices ok!).

then came these three malays. two ladies and a guy. the ladies looked normal. the guy was wearing a pink shirt. they bought only small stuffs, some snickers, a bottle of water. so i picked a small plastic bag and put the stuffs in. finished that, handled the plastic bag to the guy, not expecting anything. but wrong was i. the drama unfolds.

(A – me, H – harasser, F – harasser’s friend)

A : (handing the plastic to the guy – oblivious to whatever, in a robot-like manner)
H : thank you eh… (manja voice)
A : huh?
H : emm… i cakap thank you… (he came closer to me, RAN HIS FINGERS ON MY COLLAR, DOWN TO MY CHEST, FIXING MY BUTTONS.)
A : eh, apa ni… (panics and clueless, didn’t know what to do)

the guy walked away, glancing at me. and i thought that was the end.

F : eh ini sekali lah. (pointing to a chocolate bar) masuk semua sekali.

right now F insists that i put the chocolate bar inside the small plastic bag, that is with the guy. she called the guy. he approaches me with this perved look. urgh.

H : (approaches me) you nak ke chocolate ni? you nak?? nak makan?
A : err takpelah… lain kali kot.
H : (puts his hand AROUND not on, AROUND my shoulders) sorry la yer, i lawak jer…
A : (gets his hand off me uncomfortably)
H : (touching my cheek with his pointing finger) sorry yea. (smiles)
A : ok ok.

then he went off.

I WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED BY A GUY. okay what an (unpleasant) experience. but i was perplexed on when it actually happened! i frickin’ panicked and scared ok! luckily the OUG plaza was only for training. all i can say now?

phew.

p/s. it made me think, am i THAT attractive? LOL.

saturday roundup

21 Mar


today i went to damansara to pickup my spanking new passport around 9ish in the morning. i went to apply for a new passport last monday as mine has expired, but albeit the new “siap dalam dua jam” policy, i was too lazy too wait then. so today my dad drove me to the immigration department and voila!yeah i’m ready to runaway from home; yet sadly only to perlis as the holiday has come to its end. 😦



saturday voyage doesn’t end there, my dad sent me to the national library, second trip for the week in fact, so that i can finish up my NILAM project. and that is because, err, just so you know that *ahem* i am apparently tokoh nilam negeri perlis for 2009.;)  the last time i went to the library was when i was in 3rd form, where we had to do a history folio on malaysian traditional wedding. then, it was with my cousin afzy, and this time i was all by myself. the library is okay to me, not that great, a bit messy to some other libraries went before and the library staff were not that warm.

libraries wasn’t the likely place for me to hangout on saturdays, where you’ll meet completely different clique of people compared to those you see in sungei wang or pavilion. prescription glasses are by far the eyewear of choice rather than ray bans or jackie-o’s that are ubiquitous in malls aforementioned.  simply put, smarter people. no nonsense whateverdoings. you really got my respect, bookworms. there are, a lot of them, actually.
and came night, my aunt wanted to treat me some dinner. i wanted to eat wendy’s at jusco setiawangsa but she said that it was no good. we discussed and brainstormed, and we ended up in two options, tgif or manhattan fish market. i chose manhatfish as it was closer to my house, the ampang park outlet. so we went there, with my brother and my aunt’s two-year old son. i noticed there’s a new nasi lemak antarabangsa outlet opened beside manhatfish. amusingly we were the only patron in manhatfish; the outlet was empty! nonetheless we proceeded with the menu, and we ordered some flaming prawns and platters. somehow the food wasn’t as fab as usual. this is our first visit to the ampang park outlet by the way. we asked the waiter to pack the leftovers. anyway, thanks maksu.

i’ll be returning to my mundane life tomorrow. i really do miss perlis by the way. concluded that this holidays pretty much sucks.

pray that i won’t forget this blog.
