I just joined another firm.
As quirky as it sounds, yesterday was my first day at work at the new place.
So I texted the boss: So, shall I see you first thing in the morn,at the office?
Then came the reply: No, meet me at KLRCA at 10 am.

Where the? Not yet at the verge of getting panicky,called Ein and while trying not to sound so dorky,I asked for the directions.Ein said its in Jalan Conlay.

Me: Oh okay. (Jalan COnlay??? Can you be more specific) I think I know (what? where?)
Ein: alah, its like going to KLCC.
Me: Oh okay. (Aquaria pun mcm gi Klcc.Help!)
Me: But is it in a building (of course lah stupid af!)
Ein: No. Its A house, affie.

Alas I didnt sound sick asking if its in a building. Thank you for you kind direction, Ein. But when I arrived, reality is true to me that I'm no expert in litigation, nor am I in arbitration or construction law.
So chin's up as I shudder the whole meeting.
So when the boss apologised for the evening to be so daft, I said no.
He was more puzzled: betulke its not at least boring as hell?
I said no (oh boss, how can it be boring if everything sounds greek to me?)
Believe me,I was more gawk-eyed than I should be boring.
Because boredom is for those used to be in that same scenario over and over again.

So lunch came. The boss and I and the rep from the respondent marched to Eden (hoho).
Boss said I have the honours to order while the respondent's rep cheekily ordered lobsters and sharkfins soup and five more dishes while the boss was taking a call.

Of course, I can't speak Chinese so the boss knew it wasn't me who ordered. But still I felt so guilty (and stupid) when the food came. Aiyak! Banyak nak mampos.
Luckily the boss was only joking when he said "Oh Miss Harrison, you sure your card can swipe all this?"

I almost fainted.
