Our Nuffnang office in KL is completing renovation this week so it's time for me to start shopping for furniture.
Today, I found myself at A M-Office System for that. Now if you're looking for office furniture, A M-Office System is every little boy's wet dream.
Walk inside and you'll see different office set ups of all kinds... almost like a dream office yourself.. only with price tags on all their furniture.
This time round, I was looking for office chairs and a small meeting table. The meeting table wasn't hard to find.
I walked in, set my eyes on it and knew that was the one. A small round glass table just for four with stainless steel legs.
But the hard part was the chairs.
Simply because... they were ALL SOOOO GOOOD!!!
I mean you could sit in them... and... and... FEEL LIKE THIS!!! SEE THAT LOOK ON MY FACE?
THAT IS THE LOOK OF ABSOLUTE BLISS!!!
There were even chairs that made me feel like I COULD THINK BETTER!!!
BEHOLD!!! BOSS STEWIE THE PHILOSOPHER!!! But my little chair scouting screeched to a stop when I saw this!!! Now I don't know about you guys, but that looks like one of those chairs that you see in The Matrix.
Only that the ones in The Matrix looked rather uncomfortable but this one felt so good it would make your balls float in the air for a few seconds.
I glanced at the price tag and it cost just about the same to a previous chair I saw.
RM1,788. NO MATTER!!! YOU CAN NEVER PUT A PRICE TAG ON A GOOD CHAIR!!!
Excited I called my dad to tell him about it but he didn't answer his phone so I called my mum instead.
"MUM!!! I FOUND MYSELF THE PERFECT CHAIR!!! I AM SO GONNA GET IT.. It costs almost RM1,800 BUT IT IS SOOOO DAMN GOOD MUM!!!"
My mum was calm.
"Good for you son! Go get yourself that chair! But before you do... just let me ask you a few questions"
I laid back on to my soon-to-be-mine chair and said "Shoot!" Mum: Tell me son... you must be a multi-millionaire now huh...
Me: Uhmmm no.. but what has that got to do with this?
Mum: Just bear with me... well.. so you're not a millionaire. Okay.. is Nuffnang making millions now?
Me: Uhmm... not really.
Mum: Oh?? But will you be making millions by next month?
Me: Uhmmm... that's a little too quick...
Mum: Ohh... So will this chair help you make millions?
Me: Uhmm.... not directly.
Mum: And how many ads must you sell to afford this chair?
Me: Well ermm... just some...
Mum: Just some?
Me: Well fine.. quite a lot.
Mum: Now will the people who invested in Nuffnang be happy about you buying this overpriced chair?
Me: Probably not.
Mum: Will Ming be happy?
Me: Probably not...
Mum: I see... is your backside allergic to normal chairs?
Me: Uhmm no... but one day it COULD BE!!!
Mum: Okay son.. very well. Go and buy yourself that chair!
She hung up the phone and I walked across the showroom back to the saleswoman. As she turned to me I asked "What is the cheapest chair you have here?"
She pointed out this chair... RM45. I tried on the chair. Then my cheeks turned pink as I asked
"Can give cheaper a bit ar?"
