Benson and Hedges dream almost came true

Eh.. friendster had started blog thingies rite? Herm.. it is cool when most peoples would read ur blog.. but how can u 'umpat' a certain peoples eh? hihu

I am tired.. It had been a most .. something something week. Haha.. for once I can't put a word to something. No worries.. I was called yesterday for an interview. I am sure most of you would had laugh when they heard the position they ask me to filled in. Somewhat like a kayak instructor. I was strangely surprised, yet.. it was like.. for a while.. I was like.. wow.. A chance to get away from it all. And be one with nature. Well.. my dream is not be one with nature. But.. imagined that if I got the position. I would thin of course, but really really sunburnt. I was tempted to tell the interviewer that this is my chance to get thin and slim. Oh yeahh.. I went along for the ride (interview, I meant) , I was like.. whut the heck. If I got through the 2nd stage of interview, I would be sponsored to go to Langkawi for another interview.

It was really2 tempting for a while. If it were not for my family, I would probably had said yes... on the spot and said "take me now". They gave us an aparment in some resort. And learn all things that nature in Langkawi could give us. I would be able to really contribute something to humanity, since they are also involved in a lot of charity event. AND i would be able to kayak from one island to the other, which are one of my Benson and Hedges dreams of all time. And now.. a company is giving me a chance to experience all that, and get paid for it. Wow~

Yet.. we are always tied down with something. I have already got a job. I have my family. I have to be with my sister now since she will be alone soon. My mom is already freaking out when she heard that. She was like.. "what are you going to do up there".. bla bla bla. I still remembered when the first time I told her I was going to entered a 2 days long kayak expedition. I told her after I had undergone the 1st day training. She rant and said " Kalo kena baham ngan buaya padan muka kau". Hahahha.. I was and still thankful she do not have a 'mulut masin' or I would had probably been a croc lunch.

So.. my family is vehemently against it. Except for my eldest. She told me to do it if I really want it. But.. do I really want it that bad? To leave the family? Leave all my friends? Be one with nature as in get bitten by mosquito all the time, rarely taking bath, hair smelling like longkang?
But its really2 tempting.. wouldnt you be? But.. I probably won;t get the job anyway. But its really gave you something to think about eh? Really way out of line from your comfortable zone.

I love the benson and hedges advertistment. The one done in 3D. With that statuette fluet player robot thinggy playing a tune whilst some stuff-i-cant-really-recall flies around the room.

It was awe inspiring. Back in those days, 3D rendered clips are a rarity.

You wanna be a kayak instructor? hmm.. but nantik your upper body jadik all muscley. Your shoulders start to bulge with rock hard muscle, giving you a broad shouldered outline.

at least you won't need shoulder pads anymore. that's one less thing to worry about.

I don't like shoulder pads. I mean, I don't like looking at baju kurung with pads. It is very rare to see baju kurung with pads that looks ok or flawless. I think that the crease on the edges of the pads is a real turn off. It looks so artificial. so made-up.

so my advice to you dils, (although i bet you might not heed it anyway) is to be true to yourself. Don't wear shoulder pads.

Or is it supposed to be 'be true to yourself and persue whatever you are interested in'?

Maybe you could fnck that. That line only works in the movies.

wah...kayak instructor? must be your dream job. hehehe..

about to accept the offer (incase you got the job), some constraints need to be considered. ppl like in my internship place once work at very worthy place but lots of work to do, but since he considering the valueable time with family (he's going to married), he quit the job after a year. and he said that he do that for his family....good choice actually but he always babling about not enough money, high expenses la and so on so forth. he said that sometimes he quite disappointed with his current job but the decision already made and nothing can he do to rewind back the time.

one thing that u must consider is when you make the decision, there are no single regert in your heart. not only for now, but also in future. ppl always regret for the road not taken......

may the force be with you. every decision has pros and cons, so made up your mind.

don't care attitude works! needy attitude is a turn off.

now everybody... close your eyes and chat these words..

don't care attitude works! needy attitude is a turn off.

do this regularly. and when you are about to confess your overwhelming desire to throw yourself at your crush's feet, remember the chant...

don't care attitude works! needy attitude is a turn off.

now everybody... again! and do it with feeling
