Been receiving funny as in strange calls as in bizzare (to me lar) .
First, from this woman from the United Nations Human Centre for Refugees. Wanting to know whether I would be interested to work with them. Based on the CV I sent them like 3 years ago. When I was full of dreams of making a difference in the world. And when I hated the corporate world slightly more than I do now heh heh heh. Gaji more than what I used to make but less than what I am making now. Not that salary is what you think of when you join the UN (although I thought it's in USD? :-)) .
I declined , you! I discussed with hubby and he said - you nak ke kerja dengan refugees? You will be dealing with cambodians and vietnamese and laotian refugees -laratke? Yeah yeah but at least you feel you are helping humanity... Tak taulah..will the job load be heavy? I read the specs- needing to interview people about their life, able to deal with vulnerable and traumatised people, write reports - MY FORTE Helloooo!!! Interview people?? Be nosy and get PAID for it?? hee hee hee...sounds so made for me...BUT .... I told them maybe later..when interest will come first before making a living....right between managing the fabric shops, translating and writing scripts for tv har har har..oh yeah did i mention tutor the kids, learn french mandarin and arabic (and korean if I can get away with it) as well as learning to swim, horseride and scuba dive?? Hee hee- check this space- I probably would still be saying the same thing when I'm 80 hee hee.
Second call was from a friend asking if I know T.M. Waaakaka have not heard this name for ages! Masa 5 years old we were "bofren gerfren" ..yes 5. years old. Johan's age. Anyhoot found out this guy is now a doctor- probably a consultant, single and looking for lurve. Only thing is he sounds like he has grown up to be a swinger! Oooo-er I don't think I will be recommending him to any of my pals,thanks, although I'm sure he still is the nice,sweet guy he was supposed to be years back. . Funny how the world is really small.
Met up with Uncle T and Auntie M, former dentist of mine and also army buddies of my parents...they do not seem to age at all except Auntie M who is suffering from the big C - is a lot thinner. Can't believe that when we last saw them, Nadine was 2.
Ok ok ok...im back to work now..
Believe it or not I am rewatching Winter Sonata.. ee geram betul I dengan si Yujin tu lah... she really was a wutz wasn't she? and...
