Talk About Breakfast

October 31, 2008 at 3:19 am (Office Email)

Ohayo gozaimasu minna-san!

If you noticed since Idayu left, I never go out for lunch. Usually I bring food from home, buy a breakfast somewhere and make it brunch, or simply let my stomach suffer until 6pm. Talk about breakfast, I usually buy them from stalls along my way to work every morning, if I use Sepang-Dengkil route. There’s a lot of stalls opened, you know normal nasik lemak stall, with the table and payung and everything.

But one that grabbed my attention is this one guy with his perodua kancil in front of Sepang F1. There’s no table, just him standing behind his car with the bonnet opened with full of foods in it (lately he place a big umbrella on his car to grab attention). Among all this conventional stalls, his is the one that I think get most customer and usually everything is sold out before 9am. You know why? The customers no need to get out of the car. Just open the window (or he’ll open the passenger’s side door for you) and order whatever you want. He has this constant menu packed nicely, just pick what you would like to have. Its looks like a nasik lemak version of mcdonald’s drive thru to me. What a brilliant idea this guy has. Simple, practical, and I can see that he’s holding a big pile of money in his hand every morning.

And then one thing occurs to me; why not this idea commercialized? The success of his business shows that Malaysians are getting lazier, even to get out of the car to get their breakfast. How about let them make their order and pay it online, and just pick it up the next morning? Imagine stalls with big logo of “Breakfast on the Go” everywhere in Malaysia with Webcash logo with it (kidding). I think I want to implement it one day. The problem is I don’t have the courage to do it ::sigh::….

So suyash, what do you want to learn today? I think I want to teach you numbers:

0=kosong

1=satu

2=dua

3=tiga

4=empat

5=lima

6=enam

7=tujuh

8=lapan

9=sembilan

10=sepuluh

Just remember these first ok.

Maxis Narrowband

October 30, 2008 at 2:43 am (Office Email)

Howdy

Today I want to share my experience on the past few days.

Last Saturday I went to the mines shopping centre to get a handphone for my brother. When I walk past by a maxis shop a sales guy promote me to switch to maxis postpaid but I’m more interested in the wireless broadband which cost RM118 per month. He said if I’m not satisfied with the service, I can terminate within 7days so I agree to sign up.

Then when I test it back home, I’m quite disappointed because the speed is so slow…38kbps because my home area doesn’t have 3G. If I live a few kilometers away in seremban I can get the 3.6mbps speed L. Therefore I decided to return back the thing and I want to sign up with celcom instead. Celcom offers 356kbps for RM68 per month. Pay for what you get right?

The issue is last Tuesday when I went to the mines to return it, the staffs there make a @##$%@# face which rose up my temper sky high. They said I need to return it to the service centre in cheras (which of course had already closed at that time!) #$%^!!! They didn’t mention it at all before, not even stated in the terms and condition. So that’s the first time I yell in a shop. Then a girl there suggested me to go to the service centre in KLCC. And I went there, stranded in a very long queue before I can return the thing and I didn’t even get paid by cash. They’ll pay me by check within 3 months. So I used it for 3 days and get my money back within 3 months. Fair enough. I’m sick of Maxis and will never ever sign up for their internet service again. Ever.

Moral of the story is – customer service. How long does it take for us to respond to customer, are we providing enough information and the way we entertain them. That’s an issue.

So Suyash, today’s word is very practical

BALIK=go back/go home

Eg: “Suyash, balik!” kata Mior.

=> “Suyash, go home!” says Mior.

I hope suyash can reply back the meaning of it in Hindi so that we all can learn a new language.

I’m Blogging Emails!

October 29, 2008 at 3:10 am (Office Email)

HI everybody

When suyash said “have you write email for mior?” first thing that comes to my mind is “God! More reports to do and to be honest my motivation gone down 0.5%.

I was thinking how I can make this interesting to do, so I got an idea of writing this email similar to a blog post. This is my way of being innovative, how I motivate myself to complete my job in a different way.

I think this is a good medium for me not just to report to mior but also to tell you guys what I am thinking about everyday.

Being the only girl in this company, I can’t avoid feeling lonely coz I cannot tell anybody about my feelings. Gosh I miss idayu a lot! Sometimes I have a lot of things to talk about but I have no one to talk to. Sorry, I’m not much of a talker and I like writing more than talking. So I think through this way you guys will know me better. And I also hope others would do the same with their emails. Blogging needs comments. So I hope you can reply to all if you have anything to say. Anyway, I hope you can forgive my grammar mistakes here.

One more thing, I’ll try to teach suyash malay language by giving “word of the day”.

So suyash, here’s the word of the day

CANTIK = beautiful

Eg:

Mas Elyna sangat cantik.

=> Mas Elyna (is) very beautiful.

Always remember this sentence suyash..always….

================================================================================

But if you don’t like this idea I’m fine with it. I’ll stick to a formal report format.
