Impatience Leads to Stalking

One of my job tasks is conducting company profile searches using the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM), as and when Legal or any other divisions requests for a search. For a fee of RM13, we can print out the company profile of any registered company in Malaysia. The company profile will include details such as the address, registration number, authorised and issued capitals and the directors details.

As you may recall, I'd won a bid for a phone on a month ago. I hadn't receive any email or SMS reply on the status of my order (although I had email and SMS a number of times). I expected this as many feedbacks of the seller had pointed out this, besides the long delivery time. Although there are 1000+ positive feedbacks, when it comes to my own money, I tend to worry why it's taking so long.

So I decided to do a little digging.

A Wedding of Two Dear Friends

It is an awkward feeling when you realise that you're not that young anymore, although you may feel it [young]. This was apparent when the bunch of us ex-form 6 classmates learned that two of our dear friends were getting married (to each other). I guess this wasn't much of a surprise to us - it was just the next natural step in their long courtship.

But what surprised me was when the [then] bride-to-be SMS-ed me asking whether I could be her bridesmaid! There were supposed to be the three of us, but in the end only J and I accepted the bride-to-be's request.

Wanting the Chicken Before the Egg Hatches

It was the Friday before the Raya week. I had a little "itch" to check out my latest iWant - the HTC Sensation. So we went to our usual phone dealer and I got to touch my iWant for the very first time (after stalking it for many moons). Learning of the price from the seller, I put it down and went home to stalk it virtually.

I'll admit, I started bidding to make the other bidder pay more and not because I had intention to buy the phone. It's evil, I know. I had brainwashed myself enough into thinking that I would never get this phone, just like my previous enigma.
