Pre-D-Day

On Monday, I took a cab to Sime Darby Convention Centre. My client with the help of their consultants arranged a pre-deployment briefing there for half a day. According to the schedule, breakfast was served at 8:00am. Never in my wildest dreams I could have guessed that it was biscuits and coffee. LOL. It was just a platform for the President to lambast that his senior management team for not getting involved in the project. Whole lotta hot air and stuff. Nearly fell asleep. Lunch was served at noon and I had a little bit of everything from the buffet line. Decided to take the rest of the day off and go gallivanting with SK (who was supposedly working). She picked me up and we went to Publika for lunch at Journal by Plan B. SK ordered their big breakfast platter and ate some from her plate. Didn't feel too well after lunch. Something was having a cat fight in my tummy. No bad service experience, but most probably cause it was way past their peak hours. Later went to Wings to collect a luggage that SK had purchased weeks before only to find that they forgot to transfer it over from the One Utama branch. Surprisingly, SK didn't blow up. Gave the One Utama branch a call and we arranged to meet them at one of the entrances to make the pick up. It was a quick and painless process, and the apologetic salesgirl even gave SK a little gift to smooth things over (although it was ugly, its the thought that counts :P).

B is for Bulb

With nothing better to do, we headed back to Kinrara. Just made a quick stop at the pharmacy at Damansara Uptown for me to buy some supplements. Turns out my quick stop was foiled by some woman complaining of a rash on her thigh. She was undecided between two creams and was telling the pharmacist that she didn't like "oily creams". Gawd. Just as we had wanted to leave, SK managed to arrange tea time with Lifebook at Paddington's House of Pancakes, The Curve. Ordered some fruit punch and two pancakes (one savoury, one sweet) and gossiped the late afternoon away. Felt a bit like a tai-tai that day... hahahaha.
