Just My "Luck"!

My bad luck all started last week Oct 30, 2008 when I attempted to deposit around 200MYR cash into the cash deposit machine at Bandar Puteri Puchong and just as I place my money into the slot of the machine, the machine somehow hanged and spewed my ATM card out and subsequently the notice that the machine has malfunctioned appeared on the screen.

I was advised to go and file a complaint the next day I was told to meet a Ms. Yeong or something. After filling up some forms, she told me to wait for 3 days for the money because the machines were under some outsource company and after some standard procedure, will I only receive my money. She will notify me when the money is cleared.

After those morons took one week, I called Ms. Yeong up again and started yelling at her. Turns out, the outsource company had a “technical problem” and after further yelling and all, the money was banked into my account. Those morons have no idea I had to live 7 days without money!!! Cost incurred: 25MYR for calling their Toll Free number and screwing another outsource employee!

On November 8, 2008 when I was at 1U at (the one near some money changer right after you go down the escalator from PUMA) to top up both my phones. I gave that Pengkit (a female but dresses like a guy) 60MYR to top up 30MYR Digi and 30MYR Maxis.

That moron gave me 30MYR Digi and 10MYR Maxis but I didn’t noticed until I had topped that amount up. I had to walk half way back to the bloody fucking shop to demand my remaining 20MYR! She had to give it to me in 2 denominations of 10MYR. After screwing her ass, I went on my way and nicely topped my phone.

After I used all 3 coupons, I noticed that my credit expiry was 10 days from then. I had to call Maxis Toll Free line again and those morons said that they can’t do anything because I topped up 30MYR in 3 denominations of 10MYR!!

After yelling at that Bastard, Hurensohn in front of Guardian, they can’t do anything as usual. Sometimes, I wonder what can they actually do??? Cost incurred: 16MYR for calling their Toll Free number and screwing another outsource employee!

I have no idea why these big companies in Malaysia expects their customers to pay for their Customer Service. I’m beyond upset because I never expected all this to happen to me. I’m generally a happy person but all this shyte that I don’t deserve is slowly turning me into the bitch I once was.

I can run a car over a kid and yet not feel bad about it. I never expected things like these to happen because I’m Michelle. I live a blessed life albeit a stressful one but I’m not the type of person to break a heel, have a door slammed on my finger, etc… That’s more xy not me! I’m the type that wins contest, finds money, etc.

Now, I’m like a ticking time bomb waiting to explode and I’m warning those who might offend me or they’ll fucking get it from me. And the poor person will not only get it, they’ll get it 3X bad!! I’m sick and tired of this country called Malaysia that is governed and run by idiots.

Besides that, I got a job, bought my curtains and material to make my dress!! I’m opening a new Hong Leong bank account as soon as I have the time so that I can close my CIMB and Maybank account. Both are incompetent and have inconvenienced me so much!! As for Maxis, My loyalty to you will be given to either U Mobile or I’m just gonna bear with it for another year or so until I leave. You can count on that! As for, the only reason I buy my monthly top up from you is because I can collect my OneCard points but since they said that it’s not applicable for top up, I’m taking my business elsewhere! If you don’t wanna experience what I’ve experienced, you should too!

US Presidential Elections 2008

After months of campaigning and drama, it finally ended on the auspicious day of November 4th, 2008. Months of political analysis, financial planning, and public relations activities, America has finally decided to CHANGE and accept a black man to lead the country.

He is not just any black man; he’s Barack Obama, the FIRST African American and also the PRESIDENT of United States. I’m sure Martin Luther King would turn in his grave for happiness! He made the most memorable speech by, “I have a dream, … sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood ... I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”

I was rooting for Clinton but decided to switch to McCain not because I’m Conservative. In fact, I’m Liberal. Those who think they know me; I didn’t do it because I was being racist. I did it after studying each and every policy of McCain and Obama. I didn’t do it for fun but then I guess, since I’ve chosen policies as my major and aspire to work as a policy advisor or policy analyst for UNDP, I might as well start by studying the policies.

Both policies are admirable in terms of promoting development to America and especially the opposed view on Iraq. The strength of Obama’s policy comes with the distribution of wealth, middle class tax cuts and the most important would be the withdrawal of American troops in Iraq which has cost America a total of $ 10,562,786,467,087.35 USD ( )

Obama portrays the quintessential American guy; a loving and supportive wife, Michelle, daughters Sasha and Malia. His story is the typical work hard and perseverance story that we are all familiar with. He was brought up by a single mother, put himself through college, worked hard, excelled and earned his law degree from an Ivy League school; Harvard in 1991.

Hailing from a diverse and cultural background helped a lot too. People feel that they can relate to him since he’s an offspring of a Kenyan and an American and subsequently the stepson of an Indonesian contributed to the success of his campaign.

McCain on the other hand pushed for a more closer to heart policies especially regarding the family, adoption, environment and also the subsequent distribution of more American troops in Iraq. McCain is the typical war veteran that is very experienced in terms of life and his mere presence demands respect.

It is very commendable especially his policy regarding the environment and family. Those two issues were his strongest appeal but he’s colorful past outshined his policies. His policy on the Lexington plan and Climate Change has got to be engaging and appealing to most environmentalists but he lost because the Americans prioritized financial assistance over the environment.

America is more concerned on the state of economy which McCain failed to demonstrate some sort of priority which Obama placed absolute importance on. McCain is also a very cultural person as he’s been a prisoner of war in Vietnam and this should show that he is serious about serving his country, and its people but rather it portrayed him as an angry person.

Besides that, their adopted daughter Bridget McCain is from Bangladesh and was brought to America to correct a severe cleft pallet and she ended up being adopted by McCain. Another “human interest” story would be the pro life choice of Sarah Palin and her pregnant 17 years old daughter, Bristol Palin which appealed to many.

At the end of the day, it depends entirely on America and their ideologies. Those who are open to changes, idealistic and are against the war in Iraq could vote for Obama while those who are Conservative, realistic and supports the war in Iraq are free to vote for McCain. This is the true meaning of democracy.

It has been an interesting fight and I’m kind of glad that it’s all over. In fact, I think it’s a new beginning. Time to see if Obama is going to fulfill all his promises. You can bet that I’m going to be there reporting every move. Till then, celebrate the victory!

October Events!

I LOVE the Bold but Maxis Blackberry plan is so difficult to understand!!! Will have to drop by the shop!
Since my ipod is half dead and Zune isn't available in Malaysia, will most likely to get Chromatic or worst comes to worst, get Padrekins or Josh to bring a Zune in!!
Aunty Margeret from Singapore managed to celebrate her Halloween birthday with us!

I surprised XY on her birthday!!! lol! She's not the only one who can surprise me!!

Octoberfest which was just so-so! Even the entertainers were local! Just love the 1MYR beer! Wishing Mink, Hindraf and India were there!!

I was really busy the past weeks until MT has to remind me to update my long ignored blogs. Well, I’m officially done with all those social life sucking assignments. Words cannot describe how extremely happy I am!! 1 Finals paper down, 2 more to go!! I celebrated so many things this month.

Let’s see, I managed to celebrate XY’s birthday and Aunty Margeret came back from Singapore and we managed to celebrate her birthday as well. OH!!! My favorite festival Octoberfest isn’t as happening as last year! This year wasn’t that fun! Maybe I’m just missing Mink, Hindraf, India, and Bilal!!

Well, I have made many plans but I’m really hoping it will all materialize! Now, I’m just counting down to my Phuket trip!!! So gonna soak up the sun!! The sun, sea, spa, sand and sparkling water is like heaven to me!!

I think I’ll really miss my Consumer Behavior class of all things to miss!! I’ve really enjoyed the company of Ms. Crystal, and my classmates! I will really miss them next semester. The only thing good this semester that I look forward to is my CB class! My favorite days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays when I have CB classes.

I’m thinking whether I should get an iPod, Blackberry Bold or save the money for as holiday?? I’m guilty of counting chickens before the eggs hatch!

I’ve noticed something, ever since I wrote about the LimKokWing sluts, the traffic to my blogspot has doubled, tripled and quadrupled!!! They all left my blog via gutterpost! It’s obscene!! I’m not promoting gutterpost but whatever!!
