Form 6 Orientation Week

Sunday, May 16, 2010
16 May 2010 - So, I made it to form 6 eventually. I'm gonna blog about the long and tiring orientation week for this post. The first 3 days was quite boring if you were to ask me. After registration, we were directed into the hall and were given talks by those moderators and Penolong Kanan such as Pn. Tan Cheng Choo, Mr Karu and Mr Chong. Childish ice-breaking games were then intorduced to all the lower six students.

3 boring days passed. At least there's some activities that lighten up the day a little. We were divided into classes! Bear and Haw Tung were assigned to LSS2 whereas Yee Lim was assigned to LSA3 along with Sze Ngou. I think he was quite happy for that? I was assigned to LSS4 as I'm choosing Biology. Kar Heng, Tan Kian, Xinh Guan, Mark Ooi and some michaelians were there with me too. I'm grateful for that I admit. Joe Hang was quite down for going into LSS5. He said that no one was there to accompany him.

Miss Ling Lidi (spelling correct?) will be my class teacher and my MUET teacher for this year. I don't know what's wrong with her. I raised up my hand when she asked who are the michaelians last year. She was shocked and said that she never see me before. I mean... what's wrong mann? There are so many students in St Michael's and she told me that she never see me before? =_='' Nevermind, I forgive her.

Friday's the last day of the week. All the subject teachers entered the class and introduced themselves. Pn. Fairoz will be my Pengajian Am teacher. Hong Wei told me if I'm not going for tuition for this subject, I will fail badly. Mr Paul's my Maths T teacher. Pn. Choong, the teacher that I dislike so far, will be teaching me chemistry. She's arrogant and stubborn. She told us that if we followed her lesson with full attention, then tuition is not required. She even asked us whether she looks fierce or not? A loud YES was my reply and she was looking to Mark who was sitting beside me that day. LOL! The one who has yet to show up is my Biology teacher, rumours said that Mr Liew Boon Ket will be teaching my class. It will be great if it's true.

For the overall, I personally felt that the class is lacking of something. Something which I have it last year but it disappeared completely this year. Maybe it's my confidence, maybe its the way I present myself, maybe it's because I'm separated from my close friends, maybe and maybe... I don't know. JPA JPA, when are you showing up?

My DiGi Job

Sunday, May 9, 2010
9 May 2010 - Gosh, my blog has been missing updates. With no interesting activities happen recently, I decided to post about my digi part time job for the whole 5 months since I've been working in January. Initially, I worked alone for the first week. Yee Lim and Joe Hang joined me later in mid-January.

We travelled everywhere for almost all digi roadshow, so there's no fixed place where we worked. Selling normal sim packs for the locals was the most boring roadshow of all. They were ignorant and most of them already have their own numbers so they don't even bother to look or listen to us. Migrants market was interesting. They came like a swarm of bee and wipe out all the sim packs. Unexpected right?

Raymond and David Ong are the current leader for D&U Distributor, the digi company I've been working for. They drive their van almost everyday, everywhere and few times a day to set up roadshows. Places that are far from Ipoh such as Teluk Intan, Ayer Tawar, Sitiawan were common places where roadshows were being set up.

However, there are some places near Ipoh which were worth working such as Menglembu and Silibin pasar malam, Shen Jai High School, Kampar UTAR, Keris College, Gunung Rapat, Pengkalan and many more. These places does not require much travelling time.

It was quite fun to work with friends actually, especially there were no strict rules to follow. We just need to wear our digi or broadband shirt along with jeans. Promoting skills can be trained too. This gives us more confidence in communicating and understanding our customers. I admit that sometimes it was quite frustrating and tiring to work in distant places but as time passes, I treat it as an eye-opening experience for me to explore places which I will never go for nothing.

Kar Ming joined us for just once for Simpang Pulai roadshow before he worked in Kenny Rogers. After chinese new year, Haw Tung joined us too. So, the 4 of us have been working together for quite some time.

Photos taking are common. They have to submit those photos to digi center for reports. Besides setting up umbrella and tables, we have to wear those sandwich can man costumes to give away balloons and free pop-corns to anyone who passed by. We called those costumes rubbish bin, its the same as what Haw Tung's wearing in the photo above. LOL

Throughout my working life, I've met quite a number of strangers who later became friends. Travelling, travelling and travelling. I will never get boring from those travellings. Vizent worked with me once in Kampar. We were in shortage of promoters that time so I called up him. Katherine was the one who called me for work everytime. I think I've updated about her in my previous post for her simple birthday celebration.

Last but not least, Wai Hoong joined me just 3 days before I quit my job to further my studies in form 6. We worked in Casuarina Hotel along with Katherine for international players market. Players from China, Pakistan, Egypt, Australia, Korea and India were staying there for their 19th Sultan Azlan Shah Cup competition for hockey. It was the best working place as we only sell sim packs for them to use throughout their 10-day competition. They were extremely friendly compared to those Malaysian players. It was indeed a pleasure to meet them in real although I'm not a big fan of hockey. That's all for this post. Thanks for reading =)
