Week 2 (A lot of nonsense here)

Monday and Tuesday was grueling technical training, all about the processes and steps to take during the audit. In my dire struggle to keep awake, i downed mugs of coffee... it made me so bloated, add that to the fact that i've already gained weight = my pants were so tight, it was torturous!

The highlight of my Tuesday. I decided to wear a scarf to work...

A friend spilled some juice on her shirt and i forced myself to offer her my scarf. Pretty sad about it but i simply cant bear to see her so upset la, i would feel guilty if i bitchily just told "her that it cant be seen, leave with it" although it WAS barely visible...

Guilt rules me. After the last post i actually had a dream that one day in the future the guy i bitched about is someone i need to get an approval for something... and i didn't get the approval cuz the fella remembers me! Guilty about blogging it!

I just cannot make it as a bitch la. So, i gave the scarf to her in front of another two girls and they were complimenting it! I was happy they thought the scarf idea was a nice touch but at the same time i felt like a lion who's mane has been chopped off

Quite worth it and i grinned when she said "Thanks, You saved my day" when she returned it =)

Besides, even before work started a friend already complimented me on it =) Powderful weiii

Wednesday was a factory tour in an automobile factory. Damn COOL the way they test the speed of the car. Tested until 130kmph. I watched and watched in awe until MY told me that everyone has already left! I tore myself away from the testing area and saw that indeed, everyone has started making their way out of the factory!

Free half day off work after that, super cool eh? And i went shopping! =P

On Thursday, WT who seats next to me brought a new laptop bagpack, she also went shopping on Wed, LOL!

I wore this on Thursday

MY said "I like your dress" and a Malay friend said "Nice dress" and Lemmon Tea said "Is that cashmere?" Happy lor of cuz.

Thursday's training was on the 16th Floor of Imperial hotel. Spectacular view. And loved my breakfast session with the Sri Petaling carpooling people! The sun hasnt started glaring and it wasnt too hot, u can clearly see the well renovated architecture of the Heritage Row clubbing district in daylight, unlike what u normally see it in its business hours.

And my nasi lemak was so damn good.

Took the SMART Tunnel home that day. Quite fast, good radio reception in the tunnel! But the road in the tunnel is bad. Not smooth and u cant go faster than 60kmph, thats the speed limit.. u can exceed it but it doesnt sound good and there are CCTVs every few meters. RM2 for the stretched i traveled on.

On Friday, taking the SMART tunnel was a big mistake, it rained! I was so late, the last to arrive, a good 30mins AFTER the 2nd latest people! Oh my god and it was for a dinner with leaders!

My empty allocated seat was next to the industry leader/partner (they are the top people in accounting firms)! So damn malu and sitting there in such a dinner was hard for me, i was so afraid of saying the wrong thing or speaking at the wrong time that i talked very little! Other people just kept on saying what i wanted to say before i manage to say it!

I managed to ask a few things and i guess that's okay. The one who spoke the most to the leaders was Lemmon Tea, thats part of the formula he gave us to help remember his name when introduced. I wonder if i can be able to talk as well as he does by the time i get to his age - 24, that'll be something for me to work on. He's 24 but joined the firm as a fresh grad cuz the Big 4 Accounting Firms do not accept small firm experience as valid prior work experience!

My industry leader was really chatty and informative, she shared a lot and i find that i benefit from listening to her. I would have remembered a bit more if i weren't so self conscious, judging my every move and watching everyone else's just to comfort myself that i am not behaving inappropriately. It was really stressing and hard to just listen. Plus thinking of something intelligent to say was no easy feat.

The manager at the table is this really jolly girl, always joking and laughing, which was nice and helped us relax a bit...

The food at Oriental Spoon wasn't good to me. Its Chinese food but served COLD. Omg i hate cold food, i am the one who wishes Japanese food is microwaved. Didnt eat much though i really appreciate the company's efforts in planning all these activities for us newbies

The industry leader joked as well, she said that the company is fattening us up before work, just like the chicken farm or whatever fattens up their chickens before slaughtering!

I hope it really was a joke, i wonder whats in store for me. How i will fare in the working life? Will i mess up? Will i give up? Will i be able to be one of the high achievers? Will i be able to do that AND have a balanced life? My questions on the future are endless...
