Looking at Watches I Can't Afford
Ming came down to KL just a few days ago for some work stuff. For those of you who don't already know, Ming is the strictest, fiercest and more dominant one of the two Nuffnang Bosses.
Look at his face when he was working on his mini-laptop.
Such anger all bottled up!
Anyway, we found ourselves at KLCC on Saturday to meet a friend for dinner. We were there a little early so we followed his girlfriend shopping for a bit until he spotted the Rolex shop there. Since we were just talking about watches earlier on, he said "Come lets go see!".
I just gave a short laugh at first thinking that he was joking but a few seconds passed and it dawned on me that he was serious as hell. So there we were, two young dudes dressed in t-shirt, jeans and sneakers looking some sort like this,
walking into the Rolex shop at KLCC.
As we walked in I was thinking to myself
"Shit shit they're so going to ignore us both... they're so going to ignore us both!!!"
But the lady behind the counter smiled at us and showed us a few of the lower end Rolex watches. The cheapest there was like RM14,000.
Then Ming suddenly asked to see another different range of the Rolex watches. I can't remember what it was called since I don't know anything about watches that I can't afford but the lady happened to say that range cost a minimum of over RM30,000. She added that they were all kept in a safe at the back of the shop.
Instead of taking her hint that she doesn't want to show it to us when we're obviously not going to buy it, Ming said
"Can I see it?"
And at that point already I was thinking to myself
"WAHLAU EH BRAHDER!!! How much you want to push the limit? I'm surprised they even let us in here!!!".
I think the lady rolled her eyes a little bit but she hid her boiling anger really well and kept being professional. Though I bet after we left the store she probably suggested to her Boss that they impose a cover charge for entering the store to keep the kids out.
A Person More Gadgety Than Me
Yesterday I met up with the CEO of MOL Access, Ganesh Kumar at his office. He showed me around his office and showed me his entire list of gadgets.
He had a MacBook Air, an Apple TV, iPhone, Big LCD TVs and heck everything any guy could wish for on his list of gadgets. And the joke is... all this is in his office. How he gets any work done remains a mystery to me!
I said to him
"You know they say every guy has one thing in their lives they spend a lot of money on. I guess I know what yours is.
Not An Eligible Bachelor
I got a call from CLEO magazine this week asking if I'd like to be in this year's batch of their CLEO's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors. The only condition for joining I guess is that:
1) You're a guy
2) You don't look too ugly
I guess I pass on both counts but I told the nice lady who called that it's not really my kind of thing and that no amount of air brushing is going to make me look good even in photos.
I asked the Nuffies however and they all thought that I should've done it. Saying that it was a once in a lifetime experience and at least they could tell their friends that their Boss was in the list once.
