    sick..sick.. sick... im down with the freakin flue... feelin' heaty.. having a freakin running nose... didnt bother going to the clinic though, doing so would only lead me to getting an mc and skipping work... popped whatever flue meds i had at home and some clarytine... *fingers crossed*
    a whole load of crap went down in this past month... it's almost the end of april believe it or not!
    Do i look like a druggie? do i? do i? do i? well none of y'all would know that, only those who've actually seen me... but fuck.. cleared the singapore checkpoint today and i was picked out for a narcotics test! motherfuckin narcotics test! i looked around and all the guys that were being flagged either 1) wore black 2) had punk hair do 3) some ah beng look a like... i had 1 and 2... so off we went to pee in a bottle and waited for our results while watching that 70's show... it was too hilarious to even be pissed about... i came out clean of course...
    i fuckin hate going down to JB.. but i hadta... the month started out fantastically with my mp3 player, malaysian mobile phone and my wallet containing my work pass, id's, driving license, bank and debit cards and all those other plastic-ky stuff.... getting stolen from my bag that was in the freakin store room of my outlet...!! my staff lost their valuables as well... fuckin unbelievable, i'd believe someone fallin into a drain and dying than something like that... i've seen the add a shit load of times "low crime, doesnt mean no crime" now i truly fuckin believe it...
    luckily i had my credit card and cash with me... was out having pizza's with anne while this shit was going on at work... so yea, thats why i went down to JB, to collect my mycard and get my malaysian mobile no activated...

    i dont know who the wanking thief was/is... the fucking cctv has a fuckin blind spot.. i got so pissed off.. i didnt want to go thru 12 hours of recording from 3 cctv's... meaning 36 hours in total... if you think the police is lembab back home.. you'd end up sitting down with your mouth wide open in disbelieve here... it took me 2 fuckin hours just to lodge a report.. and the freakin police dude suggested i make a missing items report rather than a theft report cause a missing items report would take much less time... i was like dude.. items.. stolen.. someone.. broke in.. stole things.. not lost.. make freakin theft report..! "it would take time" i dont have a choice innit! the amount of fuckin questions i got asked.. the time it takes them to type in shit.. answer calls in between.. dispatch men to check on "youths making noise in a park"... i nearly wanted to start hitting my head on the table...
    i have a phobia carrying a wallet now.. i dont like carrying one although its always in my bag..

    It was end of march... and news of a management reshuffle was spreading like a wild fire.. i was so looking forward to being transfered out... after all 4 months in the same place is pretty long torture... to add salt to the wound, the same night my stuff got stolen.. my asst operations manager tells me "dont be shocked tomorrow" we're keeping you here but all your staff will be transfered out..! so the following day i sat down with my operations manager and pretty much picked a new team... not many ppl get the opportunity to do that... i was really skeptical at first... new team, new ppl.. training all over again.. i've got 3 females under me.. i've been asked how i manage 3 females? how does it feel being the only guy? but so far this is the best team yet... we've been pretty consistent.. we were flying high for the first couple of weeks of april... but the past couple of weeks have been shit ass... we've been bleeding.. sales percentage has dropped by more than 10%... i havent calculated the last figures based on todays sales... tomorrow's meeting day, so we'll see what happens... the whole of singapore has been shitty... we've got like 5 more days to at lease equal last months numbers...
    i dont know how long more i'll be at the same place... but its like a part of me now.. it doesnt matter if i move or not anymore... time really does go by fast... 5 months at the same place... it feels just like yesterday when i took over that outlet..

    till laters... more stuff to update on... try to procrastinate less, and pay more attention to this baby... though luck? well we'll just havta wait and see innit...
