Woohoo~ Almost 4 whole days without a single update. I've been kinda busy with work and some other stuff, and yes, I owe you all the answers to my Wordless Wednesday Guess-It, so here we go with a heck of a super long post that includes everything from your Sunday breakfast to gazillion bucks of cash, no kidding.
1. First and foremost the long awaited answers to my Wordless Wednesday which was due 3 days back.
Did I mention that this was going to be a hard one? Oh, actually what I meant to say was this was going to be an easy one to warm you guys up for the hard one that would be coming this week... [Audience : Yeah right!] Ok, who am I kidding, I guess I haven't seen enough of the world yet. There are loads of winners for my Guess-It this week, the hard one was in fact the one submitted by lissa. Thanks lissa for saving this week's Guess-It. Drumroll please as we await the answers to be uploaded...
I guess almost everyone got this one...
Yup, it's that funky stand you use to display your funky plates. In my case, it's a funky clock-plate. Damn, seemed like a tough one when I took it.
And now lissa's tough little answer
Hint : Every morning, handy but irritating?
What else could it have been?? Yup, the volume controller for that irritating but handy alarm clock that wakes you up every morning when you need to be woken up. At least that's what I think the answer is, judging from the picture she sent me. If it isn't lissa would you please enlighten us?
Congrats to... [this is gonna take a while]
melanie, mar, empress bee, maiylah, gattina, patois, ,aldon hynes, shaz, jams o donnell and linda for getting the plate holder right. [Phew that took me almost 15 minutes]
And the grand prize of 1 year's supply of free air goes to rav'n for hitting the bullseye on both guesses! Bravo.
2. New Job, Old Life
Yup, I've decided to head back to the beaten track and retrace my steps as a Sony salesman. First day of work was today, currently working at the tiny area just outside Tampines Mall MacDonalds. Well, that's if you call 5 friends standing around and talking to each other for most of the day, and occassionally selling a camera to a customer or two, working. Will be there until Wednesday as of now. Trying to get myself extended to the weekend, where there will defintely be more people, which obviously equates to more sales. Heck, if any of you are free, just drop by and say hi. I'll even throw in a free on-the-spot snapped and printed photo of myself just for you to remember the day by!
3. A GA-Zillion Buckaroos
Yes, I'm not kidding. Ok, maybe just overexagerating by a little. But during that day where me and Jes were queueing up at the bank to get her bank draft done so we can pay the stupid school in their own currency, we were discussing about what the counter next to us, labelled "Treasures, Premium Banking" were all about. Yeah, most probably it's for those rich people who have millions of dollars in their account, you expect them to queue with people like us who don't even have a 5 figure sum in our bank accounts?
And just as we were discussing how much was needed to be able to sign up for this kind of previledge, a stulky looking man whisked up to the counter and started talking to the teller. A few moments later, the teller handed him a stack of $50 notes over the counter. And when I say stack, I don't mean the kind that you would pull out from your bludging left breast pocket, but rather the kind of stack that would be high enough for you to sit at a comfortable height at your office desk if you stacked 3 or 4 stacks on top of each other. I think there must have been at least 5k worth of $50 notes in that stack.
Anyway, he casually took the stack, and tediously stuffed it into his front left pants pocket. And just when we taught the show was over after watching him struggle for 10 seconds to squeeze the entire stack into his pocket, out came another stack of $50 notes, which went straight into his front right pants pocket within another 10 seconds or so. Give me those 2 stacks and I will be a happy man for the next 5 years or so. Well, that explains why they are called "Treasures". They must have hidden treasure inside their bank accounts to be able to juts draw so much money at one go.
