Working Saturday

Saturday wasn't a day of rest for me. My client's CIO cracked the whip and 'encouraged' his staff to work the weekends to make for better progress in the testing. So far, only 40% of the test cases had been covered and a milestone was coming up in a week. I doubt that there will be much drastic improvement even if they worked 24/7. But still, it was duty as vendors to help the project along, else we get blamed for delays. And so, I went in early in the morning. Not much activity from my client's side that I could detect, but there was a major glitch in the web application that caused most of the inquiry screens to fail. Scrambled half the morning to fix it and arrange for an emergency deployment. That was enough to disrupt things. Such a stroke of bad luck. But that wasn't really my issue. After making sure that my stuff was working well, I took my leave. Immediately went to pick KH up from home. I was yawning all the way from Chow Kit to Bukit Jalil, so I was really yearning for a good cup of coffee. Much to my surprise, KH was able to suggest a good place for my caffeine fix-- The Scurp, Kuchai Lama. Just MYR5.90 for a cup of Musetti latte. Not bad. Was a bit nippish, so gave their croissant a try too. That wasn't too good. And they charged us for the spread! Adoi. The place was quite empty at that time of the afternoon, and the staff just squatted behind the counter, molesting their smartphones. Gave KH and I plenty of 'privacy'. He was still a bit dizzy, so I gave him a pressure point massage on his hands. Love to see him grimace under my ministrations. Hehe. Got back home at about 5:30 pm. Slept for an hour and watched "Fringe" Season 3. Mum had went out to visit a friend so I had dinner alone at Restoran Yoon Ping. Craved for rice (noodles for both breakfast and lunch) so I ate a plate of steamed chicken with ginger and Chinese parsley with a bowl of steamed rice. Really hit the G spot...

Just Me & You & Coffee
