Hey all! Greetings from the one and only Shafeeq.
I kinda feel bad for getting stuck in a hiatus for quite a long time. My last post was on 27th of January. Hmm.. I guess I’ve stopped blogging for a month and a week now. I assume you know why. But if you’re one of the unlucky ones who missed the info (shame on you ;P), I was working since 24th of Jan. It was just a short 1 month job (not really, cuz’ it’s so tiring). While I was working there, I had to travel back and forth (with my scooter) to my workplace and it’s 30 minutes from where I live. It was kinda hard for me at first but I sucked it up and just did whatever I was told.
The first day of work was quite simple, mainly because there was a girl (Bobo) working beside me as well. She explained a lot about the do’s and don’ts. Basically I had to kinda grab the people passing by by… calling them, of course. At first, I thought NO WAY i’m gonna do that. It’s just not my style man! Thinking that I wouldn’t really like it if I were one of the people walking by. This changed when Bobo told me that I can’t be shy and I have to call them no matter what.
At first, I was really turned off by what she said. Clearly, she was annoyingly lecturing me on each and everything that I did. I would rather do it my way than doing her’s and of course I wouldn’t want someone to lecture me each and everytime! Thank God, few days later she had to take some days off due to CNY celebration. After the CNY, she stopped working. I’m not sure the reason why. Whatever it is, it’s a loooot better when she’s not around!
So working for a month was kinda tough, having to deal with dozens of customers with dozens of personalities. What I’ve concluded was, Iranian people, I don’t know what their teachers or parents taught them, but no offence I can’t emphasize more on how terribly annoying their “discounting skills” are! Not all of them, of course but some of them, I can’t even describe how bad some of them were to an extent they suddenly walked away from me with angry faces because I couldn’t give them a discounted price! I even got scolded and mocked because I was saying sorry. Just when I thought the job’s kinda simple. LOL!
On the other hand, Arab people were very nice and friendly, Thailand/Laos/Vietnam/Phil people were very nice but they were kinda quiet (maybe because they are not that good at speaking in English). Some of the Chinese people from Malaysia were friendly, most of them are not very friendly. Malays, well they’re not really interested with what I’m selling (of course not drugs!). Americans and Australians were very very friendly.
After that 1 month job, I registered for my 2nd semester @ Limkokwing. Still taking the same course, I wanna be a 4 flat student this time. Still having the same friends although I’ve noticed that some of them have decided to stop being friendly. Maybe that’s life, right? People change through time, right? Nothing stays the same. Whatever it is, I can’t help but ignore these people because I can’t really tell you how busy I am giving attention to my other good friends.
What else’s new? HMM. Oh ya, my camera, Kiku! Not only that it’s new but it’s also much more famous that I am. Seriously, most of the people that I met after posting some pictures taken with my new camera, they were already calling my camera Kiku like it’s a living object or something! LOL! Now that’s my first. Thanks to Facebook. Here’s Kiku :
Why Kiku you asked? I think that Kiss is much more of a romantic name than a cute name. Well, if you guys haven’t digested this yet, cute is always what I aim for. Hence, the name. Cute or weird, up to you. It’s weirdly cute to me. Classes have started. I love reuniting with my friends again. Great lecturers too! I feel good. 🙂 Not forgetting Tintun visited KL two weeks ago! Had soooo much fun!!!
Well that’s all I guess.
Will be updating soon!
