Went to pyramid very early today…say 10.45am? Brought dad’s friend Uncle Simon, Uncle George and Steven out to Pyramid for lunch(haha). Oh yeah, the real reason was that they wanted to buy a laptop! And you know men and computers, it’s like bargain bargain bargain.. so it tooked a good 2 and a half hours that they were hanging out at the IT centre.. whereelse Jolene tried her luck at several(three) outlets to see if they were hiring. Yes, I actually have this crazy idea to start working now.. and I was thinking of slotting my part-time work into my college schedule. I told my parents that if my time managementÂ gets from bad to worse, I’ll quit. Perhaps I’ll work till April? March? may? Let’s see.. what target shall i set? YES. A DIGICAM~~!! fucking sony non-waterproof cam..:(
Well so it was like that, I went up to the counter and was like, “are there any vacancies for a part-timer?” the lady pointed at this other guy who was on the phone.. He’s the operations executive(someone, what does that mean?).. however he was in charge.. but he could not have been older than britney spears! I mean my cousin who’s an Operations Executive(I’ll ask him what it means) is the same as britney.Â He was quite nice though! Passed me a form and I felt so happy..:P to be able to write in the “Past workplace” section. I could even put down a reference!!Â

Well then the guy asked me, “So what’s ur name?” I was like, “Jolene..” and he was like, “Ah?”.. I thought he wanted to write it down..I spelled my name out for him. IDIOT GIRL.. IDIOT!!!!Â Then he just smiled. He said, “Henry.”Â I was like, “No, Jolene,” thinking that he mistook my pronounciation for something like erin or enry or whatever strange sounding girl namesÂ .. he was like, “no no, I’m Henry,” OH right…!.. i wish i could’ve dunk my head in some ice-cream at andersens. Then he got me to sit down in front of him and asked me about where I stayed and seemed quite happy to know that it’d be convenient for me to get to Pyramid anytime at all. He also took pity on my meagre salary back at Nail Artz. “Well according to labour laws, on public holidays we triple your pay,” said Henry. I was like, “OH YAY!!”.. but then you have to understand, I was working SECRETLY back then. The government didn’t know! NO they didn’t. SHHHH. I was illegal!! What they gonna do? Send me back to Indonesia? but anyway, then he was like, “oh? SPM(Soon)? What does that mean?” I was like, “Oh, I just sat for my SPM.. awaiting results.. but I’m starting my college in January and so I’m looking for a job where I can come in say twice in the weekdays and perhaps the weekends too.” He asked if I could speak any other languages.. I was like the basics and cantonese too.. I can’t recall what he said, but he said that yea they were looking and that he needed more chinese anyway. He was like, “Wow you’re young! How is it that you finished schooling already?” … me blushing, “uhm, I skipped standard 4..(no point using terms which I’ll have to give lengthy explanations and end up embarassing myself more..)”.. “Wow you’re a genius then!”…. WHEE!!! AM I??? “Oh, no, don’t say that,” said I with a shy smile. I could doÂ a shy smile.Â Then he gave me abit of story about the origins of the company.. not that I asked, but I should’ve..! Then he asked, “So have you tried our ice-cream?” No, I haven’t so I replied, “Of course..!”…then he was like, “Really? Which flavour?” THINK FAST JO!! “Uhm, ah, my friend buys them for me, I can’t quite remember..”.. I hope that didnt’t sound too fake.
But anyway, this Henry guy, he’s quite sweet looking if I may so myself! But then again, the girls will raise their eyebrows so much it’ll look like Min Dee sans eyebrow case back in f4.;P Apologies Dee! But then as for me, my taste in guys, easily reflected by alot of people’s comments, like for example: “Seriously? Douglas Lim?” or “My grandfather is much cuter,”..I don’t like dangerous looking guys..:) I like safe, young professionalsÂ and tame types. Of course with the package deal that I’ve always had with me: taller than me, NOT fairer than me, i love deep voices?, frameless glasses melts my heart ANYDAY..Â and ofÂ course, wonder smiles.Â *sigh* During the Langkawi trip I was making referenceÂ to a cute one to barry and he was like, “Jo, your taste in guys DO suck,”.. yeah well, 🙂 for a metrosexual heÂ certainly was being contradicting. I was like, “That’s insulting yourself,”.. to which he replied, “I’m sure you were VERY different back in standard 6.” .. LOL. Yea sure, ANYBODY who was taller than me was crushed on by me. *points at self* Whore.
