2nd Day

My worst fear has come true. I am so bored! Not sure if it is because today is only my second day at work and hence the boredom OR the workload here is really a lot less than that what I had previously? All I know is I keep on looking at the clock and the time seems to be on stand still at 1-something-pm. ARGGH!! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed as much as the next person the chance to goof off once in a while but I am not the type that can sit still and not anything. For me, there is nothing worse than not having anything (or much) to do.

First day of work went a lot faster than this since that is the day that the boss briefed me on the company portfolios, goods, customers, etc. And of course, more time spent getting the system set up on the laptop. That ate up most of the morning. The afternoon I rushed out to move my car and re-park it again. Of course, silly me forgotten to note down which floor I parked. All I remember is that I went down one storey and parked immediately near the entry point. Sounds like my nightmare coming true! Luckily I was able to find it after about 15min search.

By the time I am back to the office at 2pm, the whole team is already waiting in the conference room for meeting. Very paiseh (embarrassing) lerrrr! Luckily they understand and start the meeting without much delay. Meeting ends at 3pm with me trying really really hard to concentrate and NOT fall asleep with all the technical jargon. Not their fault lar. Mine because I slept at 2am the night before. Why? Because babe want to stay at his friend house to watch his football match between MU and Arsenal. Luckily MU win, or else he will be sulking (Should be me sulking ler).

Cham lar. Keep on waiting for one of the colleague that is suppose to starting handover to me to give me all the necessary files but so far, I have not seen them lor. I think she must be very busy lar. After all, she is the only administrator in the company who does all the paperwork including HR related things. So far, have not communicate with any of the customers yet. Only with the suppliers/vendor. I am feeling so damn bored and sleepy. Hopefully it wont show on my face!!!

Today lunch, we cater in again. Apparently there is this caterer that send lunchboxes to the entire building. The lunch menu was not bad, pretty large list actually. And so far, I am not bored of it yet lar. Just 2 days nia mar. But one of the lady colleague said that they will usually make it a point to go out on Wednesday for lunch. Then not so bored with the catering food. I don’t mind either way. Eat in can save since it is pretty cheap, around RM3.50- RM4.50 only. Of course, eating out, can get to know my colleagues better lar but they are all speaking in Cantonese lorrrrr..

Sometimes I feel the very nga-nga (blur) especially when they speak real fast. I mean, I can understand perhaps 60% of the time but if they start to get excited and talk really fast, I will just let it go over my head and not understand a single thing they said. So, dungu (stupid) me just sit there, fast fast finish lunch and go back to my place. Kolian (pitiful) or not? But sometimes they remember I am there and start to talk slower or in English or Mandarin! So, I am ok lar:P
