Industrial Training Supervisor

This morning I called one company here in Bangi to speak to one of my students' Industrial Training supervisors. The number that I dialed got me connected to the receptionist. So I asked for this person.

-Selamat pagi. Boleh saya bercakap dengan Puan Norazmirah?
-Dari department mana ye?
-Saya tak tahu.
-Tak apa. Boleh saya dapatkan nama penuh dia?
-Errr...(looking at the excel file I had in front of me)...Norazmirah bt Abdul Aziz Junior.
-Hmmm...tak ada la Puan. Betul ke nama tu?
-Betul betul. Saya tengah tengok list nama saya ni.

I took the spectacles that I was cleaning, wore them and looked at the list again. At the column where the name was written it said, "Norazmirah bt Abd Aziz, Junior". Then at the line below it said, "Section Leader".

She was the Junior Section Leader.

Moral of the story: I need reading glasses.

A couple of days ago I showed some caving pictures to my niece. She looked at all the photos of caves and insects and shells and snakes and bats and just couldn't stop keeping her mouth from dropping in awe. Aku pun happy la sebab dapat eksyen dengan dia.

Then she said:
"Wow Mak Long this is so cool. You're so adventurous. You're already at level 9. But not yet at level 10 where you put your head in a lion's mouth!"

Sigh. Anybody knows where I can rent a lion? I need to impress my 9 year old niece to advance to level 10.

Oh. And I might need some breath freshener as well.
