The Anger In Me

AN IRRITATED DAY...

Woke up 5.30am.. and started our journey to his college which was 2 1/2 hours drive away from IPOH....

Lined up to pay the registration fees... Waited more than half hour to come to my turn...
Sorry for telling this... when my turn came, I knew why the delay and the "slowness"...
A very elderly lady staff was just learning to key in the enrollment particulars of the students...
She typed so slowly, never mind, another young lady staff was at her side teaching her what to type in (the codes and so on, I guess...)....

aaaaahhhhhhh..... why of all today, just learning how to key in????
This is not her fault...the college's adminstration was at fault...
Very well they know today the crowd would be there to pay and register....
Why do they allow an elderly old lady to key in the data and collecting the money?
Why don't they just allow someone more efficient to the computer to do the tasks today?

I was fuming inside when I saw the poor old lady "tic tic tic" at the keyboard, I have to resist from saying "Please, can u learn the computer another day?"

Okay, after paying, we went off to the hostel, a few minutes drive from the college.
Lined up again...
When my turn came, she looked at my receipt and asked me "Why the hostel fees only 740rm and not 1040rm?"
I got irritated again..... Taking a deep breath, I told her that the college adminstration did the receipt this way, they already collected all my money, how and what they typed on the receipt, how would I suppose to know?
Then she said "oh, cannot... you must go back to the college and clarify with them... hostel is 1040 and not 740."

aaaahhhhhh... I wanted to scream!!!
Fuming again, I drove back to the college and looked for the old lady again...
I was told she went out for lunch and would be back at 2pm....THAT DID IT!
The bomb in me exploded...
With an angry voice, I told the girl the problem, the hostel admin wouldn't allow me to take the keys without the proper payment written there....u know or not, I have to run up and down, what is this?? I already paid for the full amount u all wanted and now bec of the codes or whatever, I am being penalized???

She quickly called up the hostel admin and I heard her talking quite loudly to that lady over there, she also sounded angry...
After hanging up, she apologised saying that the hostel admin should not asked me to come back to the college and clarify....she said she had settled it with them and asked me to return to the hostel...

While driving back to the hostel, my son told me to simmer down, don't be angry with them, he said he will be staying there for 4 1/2 years... so don't make him so outstanding...

Okay, I told him to go in and settle himself... I would enter later.... but from the door, when she saw us, she apologised already... I also softened.. "its alright... may I know whether there r dobi services over here...bla bla bla............"

The end of my BOMB for today....

(I admit I am also getting old...
if not, why am I so long winded in this story?)

  23. Hi Reanaclaire, ha ha, I can imagine the volcano erupting...
    it happened to me long ago in Malaysia. I
    I was given the merry go round, musical chairs game like yours in a Government dept. Nobody seems to know what they doing, passing me around upstairs downstairs...

    Well, I blew my top! I BANGED the reception table so loud and at the top of my voice, it was very loud, "DON"T ANY BODY HERE KNOW HOW TO DO THEIR WORK"?
    AND THE MANAGER HAVING MEETING SINCE LAST YEAR, NEVER GO HOME TAKE SHOWER"?

    Oh boy, from the security to several managers etc came running out. I sure got my stuff done ASAP.
    When I banged the table, the receptionist ran away, ha ha. Lee.

  25. Where did you go? Private college or government? I went with my daughter to register at that teacher-training institute in Kedah...and they sent us north, south, east, west...and wasted ONE whole morning!!! Bunga a lot, inefficient, really fussy over nothing... How this kind of people can be government, I really wonder?

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
