it's true what Sikulat has commented in my recent entry. i have many things to be thankful about. i mean really really thankful. by writing this down, please do not perceive me as boasting or anything to that effect. i am merely sharing bits of my life, like any other things that happened in my life.
one thing to be thankful about - i finally could fetch my car from the dealer's compound. that little fella (maybe i should name her. it's a 'she' according to Kakak, btw) has been stranded there for a little less than 2-weeks. our system that was supposed to automatically generate the cheque, went kaput and restoration took place about 4-5 days later. you see, no cheque no car. system problem was one thing, the people was another. i do not want to dwell on the negative part of it but i am so so indebted to Kak Normah from HR who helped me a lot through the whole process. finally last Wednesday, 4th July, the fella was taken out and brought back home to where she should have been week earlier.
another thing to also be thankful about - i've sold my ESOS. 6 of them in fact. i have another 2 lots to go. since i do not have mountains of cash, i used financing to disburse my ESOS from T*. somehow, the process was longer than the other 2 times before. the first time, i used TA Credit. second time with Alliance Finance and this time around, Kenanga. somehow, the third time, it took so long to be listed. in fact too long that it really irritated me. there was anger. there was frustration. I wonder how Zarid could remain calm and collected! eventually mine were listed on Tuesday 3rd July. on the same day, 2 lots were sold at 10.50. Another 2 on Thursday at 10.60. i have another two listed at 10.80. usually i just give 3-4 days. if they can't make it, i'll list them at lower price.
well, grand finale of things i am thankful about - i am promoted! Mr GM himself called me and informed (during the same teleconversation, he has listed the things i need to do within that 2 days before the week ends). naturally the promotion comes with added responsibilities. i am trying hard coping, emotionally (been balik lewat and kids complaining) and physically (take-home work and staying up late to finish). it's BP time now. a very 'good' time to be promoted, huh.
okie dokie, need to hang the washed laundry.
