My colleagues and I have been working late for the past three weeks. No, trust me, it's not because of the performance appraisal season. I still have last year's bonus in my bank account. Hahahaha...
It's the beginning of the year, targets for this year need to be in place and most importantly, achievable. The initiatives supporting the targets need to be in place and most importantly do-able. Last year's performance need to be reported to the stakeholders in a politically correct manner. Bla bla bla... and not forgetting, realigning one's career track also need to be done!
If Einstein said E=MC to the power of 2,
I'd say WL=E to the power of 2.
Which in laymen term is Work Late equals Lots of Foods! and Foods! Consumption.
If we have to stay back for a meeting which starts at 10pm, we'll have dinner or 'heavy tea' at around 6.30pm and if we manage to go home, say by 10pm, we'll have heavy late dinner. How's that sound? That doesn't include the delivery of pizzas, take-aways of McDonald's burgers and tapaus of mi goreng mamak.
Yes, we're stressed out! And we eat more when we're stressed out! and now the stomach is stretched out! Awek-awek suka tidur peluk lelaki berperut buncit, kan?
Yesterday, we sneaked out from office to have rojak mi in Batu Pahat. Looks very luscious, mouth watering (and juicy) ehh? How we manage to escape to Batu Pahat in between end of official office hour and a meeting which started at 8pm? Heheheh... we're Houdinis, and we need no red underwear and cape to do that! You just go to somewhere near Universiti Hospital and there is this Grand City Restaurant, it's mamak ok, nama sikit punya grand! and you'll find one of the bestest of the bestest rojak mi in town. And this mamak really know how to cut cost... by using Hospital Pantai Batu Pahat napkins! Mamak oh mamak...
And in office... when we're stressed out, not strecthed out or stretched UP ok!, we just have this cookies... sesuai dimakan ketika kepala berserabut macam nak pecah sampai bersepai-sepai otak ni berkecai-kecai!
atau ketika isteri atau isteri-isteri anda datang bulan. Melt in your mouth, boleh ditelan begitu sahaja... emmmmm....
Thank God, it's F#!day and it's public holiday!!!
