Every Dotcom Has to Have a Bean Bag!

By last Friday, all the essential furniture of our KL office was in and the team had already moved in.

I like our office and even the girls Samantha and Suet Li seem to like it too.
There was one thing I didn't like about our office though:
It looked TOO MUCH LIKE AN OFFICE!!!

So I decided that we needed a corner of the office that felt more homely.

Some place for people to relax.

And every dotcom office has to have one thing (apart from computers of course):
BEAN BAGS!!!

I asked around and found out that Tesco had good (and not too expensive bean bags) so TO TESCO I WENT!!!

The ones at Tesco required you to buy the bag and the beans separately, then put it all together yourself.
I was so excited.
The minute I got home I ripped off the bean bag and started filling it up with beans.

And within a few minutes...

TADAAA!!!!!! BEHOLD!!! OUR BEAN BAG!!!



Yes, it looked a little pathetic even after filling it up with 2 full big bags of beans.

But I thought, maybe it's just meant to be like that.

So I tried it out.

And I figured...
"Nope... definitely not how a bean bag is supposed to be".

So I filled it up again with another bag and tried it out.

"Nope... still not quite there".

By the time I emptied all our bean bags, our bean bag only looked like this.

Which again looked pathethic.

So I got pissed off!!!

I went back to Tesco and came back with a shit load of beans, more than I could carry.
I ripped open our other bean bag as well and filled it up!!!

And now....

BEHOLD!!! OUR BEAN BAGS!!!



I love bean bags, especially when you have 2 of them.

There are so many things you can use it for.

Anything from an OSIM-Style kind of bed.

To a fort.To a....


don't ask me what I was doing in that picture... even I myself don't quite know.

I love my bean bags!!!!!

And they look great at the little chill-out corner we created in our Nuffnang office.

The girls have already found a name for it.
They call it "Nuffie's Corner".

I so need a happy and cosy corner in the office for my overworked brains. Problem is, the open-concept office looks too much like an office so does not look possible if I want my boss to approve it la hor... waaaaaaaaaa

mae said...

Boss Stewie said...

ky: Hahaha can!! come come!

michelle: the open concept office looks too much like an office? what do you mean?

mae: hehehe you have to look for it!

Ai Ming said...

gawsh, two bags of beans (=_=)

at least 6 bags are needed! FOR EACH!

anyway, the process of filling in the beans was hideous!

clement said...

whoa so nice....can sleep in office if tired lo...u still need any worker ^_^?

nyx said...

Can I come hang out at the nuffie corner? burp!

Michelle said...

erm sorry brain woozy - wat i meant was the open office concept is like the whole floor is an office. no rooms (except big bosses - smaller bosses gets cublicles). meeting rooms all glass. the other normal people all share a floor, regardless of departments. so wat i actually meant is pretty rigid lor. not seeing any "nuffie corner" in the office in the near future. hahaha!

iwan c.m.n. said...

at the office sleep under the table cannot ah?

Boss Stewie said...

ai ming: ah if only i knew you needed 6 bags each

clement: hahaha need need

nyx: can! come anytime

michelle: hahaha actually i like those open offices concept

iwan: can can

open concept office is good - but not so practical if you're handling product launch materials and your monitor is facing everybody else! hahaha!
