Will Be Busy

The CNY mood is all around me.

However, I feel the exact opposite of the current mood.

If you must know, I'm currently rushing something out for a really fussy client who has changed his mind so many times as the number of grains of rice in a bowl. I'm really fed up. This client suffers from amnesia and short-term memory loss. He forgets what he has told us 24 hours ago. He takes down no notes but offer to remember it all by heart.

That is no way to convey your requirements to your vendor.

We are at his mercy.

Besides that, he's not Chinese nor is he Malaysian and hence, does not know about the Chinese New Year festivities. Thus, he does not give a damn about our holidays.

Anyway, I'll be busy for the next few days. Hopefully, I can celebrate what is left of CNY. I will most likely attend to the reunion dinner, visit 1 relative's place and then, head back home to work.

I know. It sucks.

But then, what to do? In this economic climate, would you dare to go say "FU" to the client back? ;-)

I just hope that the company can get some $$$ out of this piece of sh*t project.

BTW, 恭喜发财!!!!


  1. Hey there,

    So sorry to you and your team. I know you guys are doing a helluva good job for this.

    In any case, Happy Chinese New Year, Angie ;-)

  2. Aiyoo too bad. 'Man man lei lo' (slow slow).

    Wishing you Happy Chinese New Year. Healthy always.

  3. You poor dear. Nvm, I am sure you will have a most enjoyable time at the reunion dinner and hope that client will appreciate all the hard work you and your team is putting in a the reward will be big. Anyway, I would like to wish you a very Happy Year of the Ox. May the year bring you loads of wealth, good health and much happiness. May the year also bring lots of yummy treats for Snoopy and Rusty too :D

  4. Hi Chris, Che-Cheh, YozoraNiteSky,

    Thanks for your support!! :cry:

    Gong Xi Fa Cai!! May you have health, wealth and happiness in the Year of the Ox!

    @Chris - Thanks! I know you're going through a tough time too. Happy New Year!!

    @Che-Cheh - Thanks!! Wish you a Happy New Year too!

    @YozoraNiteSky - Thanks! We hope so too. We're only the vendor. The middleman is apologizing profusely... BUT the real client is a real idiot.. Keep complaining. We just want to complete the project. Wish you a Happy New Year too!!

    what system are you working on?

  6. Hi steven,

    Thanks for dropping by. I'm working on an expatriate employee information management system. This system will manage the expatriate's information, benefits as well as payroll processing. This system is quite "secretive" as the data needed to be separated from the local employees in a country. ;-)
