Between me and Yuslihayanti

A lot of people say that we're perfect for each other. Each time someone says that, we both laugh out loud. There's no way that that would be possible, for we know each other too well. Besides, so what if I have a girl for a bestfriend. I've known her for like almost 13 years now, so we know each other's bad sides.

Besides, why ruin a good friendship. I don't want to go out and find another friend that I can trust just to tell about my intimate stories with.

So lets make this clear for all of you reading my blog: Iyus and I are not dating, we're good friends.

If we end up together, it would be like beauty and the beast, what will the world say. I don't think her adoring fans would like that either, hehehehehe.
Anyway, we're happy being just friends.

Top Secret Work

Mas Tony called me to his office today. I was wondering why, since I did good work on both Unilever campaigns we just finished. He gave me a big portfolio document.
"More work?", I asked. I did apply for a few days off before this weekend.
"Yeah, a lot of big work he said"
"Great, I'll start work on it!" I said.
"It's not that simple", he said. "I just talked to the board upstairs, and I need you to resign by the end of this month", he added.

I was shocked.

"Are you firing me? Did I do a bad job or something?", I asked whilst in my confusion.
"Its the opposite, you are doing so good that the board wants you to handle this next job. But you have to resign first to do it", he answered whilst giving me more questions mark than what the Riddler gives out to Batman.
"It's an internal job, but we need it from a 3rd person perspective. You can't do that if you are an employee of this company", mas Tony added. "In fact no one in the company other than some people may know about it"
"Yeah, still that means after the job is finished, I'd still be jobless wouldn't I?"
"It's an 8 figure job Chan, I think with that much reward you can afford to stay jobless for 5 years"
"So, where do I sign boss?"

Wow, I actually worked and left 3 fortune 500 companies in one year. Should I be on the Guiness books of records or something?

Highschool Reunion

Has it been 9 years already?
Seems just like yesterday I graduated highschool. Yeah, yesterday and 10kg less weight. Anyway, the reunion wasn't as I expected. There were a lot of people from the later classes (1971 to 1993), but from my own class was only 4 of us: Shinta, Vico, and that other guy (forgot his name). Oh well, at least it was fun.

Do I look like Siti Nurbaya?

First, I apologise for the extremely blurry picture, I had to make it so since there is just way too much info there. Second, let me tell you a brief story about Siti Nubaya. It tells the story of a girl who was wed outside her will by her parent's match makings. To know the ending of this story, get the book! The thing is, since my brother got married 2 years ago, my parents, and other relatives have been trying to set me up with some other girl, even the ones from outside Jakarta... everyone keeps asking that same stupid question:

"when are you gonna get married?"

I recently received this letter in the mail from my cousin, where the content was a less than one sentece word and two pictures of this girl he wants me to meet, to top it off, he wrote the letter like something official.

Jeeezzzz..... somebody help me! Pleaseeeee stop doing this!!!! AAAARghh!!!!!!
