Am I looking forward to going for my business trip tomorrow? Hmm...not really but am glad to get away from the office for 2 days. Oh, forgot say first. I am going to Penang tomorrow to meet up with my customer from Taiwan and go to our vendors together. Purpose? To make sure that the vendors deliver our products earlier than committed. Will fly tomorrow at 11am and arrive the Penang airport around 12 noon. Then, I have to wait for them till around 2pm before going straight to the vendor fab which is about an hour drive away.
Tomorrow morning, the taxi will pick me at 8am for my 11am flight because he is worried about traffic jam! So, need to leave the house 3hours before my flight! :P In Kuching, if my flight is at 11am, I will leave the house at 9.45am and arrive airport by 10am! Thank goodness I have pretty much gotten use to the crazy timing here. After all, today is exactly 1 year and 2 days since I make that major move to KL. Officially, it is because the job opportunity here is better. Unofficially, it was because my then fiance and now hubby is working here lar...
Anyways, back to the business trip tomorrow. Expect to arrive the vendor fab around 3pm and will start discussion immediately. If we (the customer and I) cannot achieve the delivery schedule that we want, we will be 'camping' there till we get the results. So, god only knows what time that will be by the time we go for dinner and back to our hotel in Penang. My flight back to KL is the very next day. So, yes, super rush. Hopefully, I can reach my home by 3-4pm.
As I said before, I never know that I will one day say that I absolutely hate business trips! When I was in the old company, we always envy those that can go overseas for business trip and wondering when it will be my turn. Good thing that I actually had the opportunity to go Japan for business trip at least once. But ever since working here, there is no more excitement out of this. Even the possibility of going to China, US, UK or Korea does not excite me much anymore.
I think it is because of the long hours spent at the airport due to flight delays or waiting for the connecting flight. Or perhaps it is just the horribly uncomfortable seats in the plane where you have to glue your butt to for hours that at certain point, you are even willing to just lie down on the aisle between the seats! Yar, that was how I felt for my trip to US, The plane was so cramp and packed with people. Long hours in the plane and at the airport, inssufficient sleep, rushing hours and crazily long meetings. Thinking of it is enough to make me cry 'No-More!'.
OH MY GOD!!! I just encounter a peeping tom in the girls toilet just now! Went to toilet at around 3.45pm today and no one else in the toilet when I went there. I went into 4th cubicle from the door. As usual, busy sms-ing while doing my business. Suddenly, I see some dust dropped from above and of course, I looked up. Imagine my shock when I saw a guy’s head peeping from the 5th cubicle. Didn’t see the whole face, only 2/3 of the face but it was obviously a guy. Before I can scream, the guy took off. When I managed to get out of the cubicle, the toilet was still empty. Outside the toilet was also empty.
I don't remember hearing anyone coming into the toilet. I mean, usually when you go to the toilet, alot people go in and out of the toilet. Usually dont pay much attention to what happen outside your cubicle mar! But I do remember hearing the peeping door un-latch the door after I saw him! Meaning that he actually locked the toilet cubicle that he is in. If he is there for maintenance, why did he lock the door? Because that was the first thing that went through my mind, i.e. a maintenance guy.
But if really maintenance guy, why in the world did he lock the toilet? Also, how come only him alone and no one else or equipments? And if he happen to enter the wrong toilet, why in the world was he standing on the toilet bowl and looking over to the next cubicle? And more crazy, I even wonder if he is a tomboy-ish looking girl but again, if he is actually a she, why in the world was she standing on the toilet bowl looking over????? The cubicle wall is roughly 8-9feet tall I think. So, definitely have to stand on something for me to be able to see 2/3 of the person head!
I lodged an official complain to the building security already. Let see if they will do anything. The security head assured me that they can check the cctv to see anyone suspicious looking. But I doubt they will find anything because they will not be able to see from the cctv if the person went to the girl or guy toilet! The person can be working for one of the offices in this building!!! i also sent out an email to all the girls working here. Super scary ler! Some of the girl engineers work late or during weekend!
All I know, from now on, am not gonna go to the toilet alone or any other lonely places by myself. Eventhought the probability of the guy doing it again is slim since he was caught, better be safe than sorry!
