The haircut to piss my boss off

Ever since I started working, I haven't been adventurous with my hairstyle. Unlike the good old times in college / uni where I had complete freedom (almost) to do a radical hairstyle, I had to keep this "good employee" image when I began working. You know, the so called "keeping a good impression", a "professional look" and all played a major role with my clean-cut hair.

I had that "good kid" look for quite some time. And to be honest with you, I got sick of it.

It was crazy, but I decided to get into my wild side again.

I guess I wanted to test the limits. I guess it was my foolish attempt to test my boss' patience on Monday morning. I guess it was just my will to break the stereotype "office-look".

Wait, maybe I just want to piss off my boss. For no reason. Utter madness.

So I did a change of haircut.



I went for the mildest idea I could think of first. This was to know how my boss would react over a simple yet significant change over an otherwise normal cut. I still need my job leh. So if my boss got really fucking piss like he just lost a million bucks, then my excuse would be "an experiment gone wrong" or "it was the hairstylist's fault!".

So come this morning, my boss saw my hair. He approached me and patted on my shoulder.

I was hoping for the lines like "meet me at my room, now", "what the hell is that" or something like that.

Instead, I got a response of "You really showed your fire...like your hair".

And he left with a smile.

Fuck! I didn't piss him off???

Which means...

...I get to slowly do a more and more drastic hairstyle! :D

God knows, maybe I could come to office one day with this haircut?



Trust me, if I ever owned a business, I will keep this hair. Heck, I highly encouraged my staff to keep this kind of hair!

The Dizfunqtional Port Dickson Trip - Chapter 4 (finale)

View Chapter 1 here, Chapter 2 here & Chapter 3 here.

CHAPTER 4 (FINALE): OF BBQ, FRIENDS AND CHOREOGRAPHY

We got up around 7-ish in the morning for our BBQ. Originally, we wanted to do the BBQ at 4 something a.m. but due to our love towards sleep, that never happened.



It was a cloudy morning, though I wished it was an Australian cool morning rather than the steamy hot Malaysian morning.


Morning emo

For our BBQ, we had Mongolian beef with bell peppers and onions along with the usual fish balls and sausages. Many thanks to Joshua for his efforts in marinating the beef prior to this trip.



Basically, we had a good time chatting away.



Of course, it wasn't long before camwhoring came about...

Beautiful photo, no?


Daniel flexing his muscles in vain.

Occasionally, an interesting photo would be taken like this one here:


What do you think it looks like?

Eventually, we had to leave. Drops of rain came not too long after.


Just too bad the sea wasn't blue.

We ain't leaving till we got a group shot though. A group photo is a must for any group trip.

Of course, what's the trip without finishing off with some, er, pool choreography?

I haven't had so much fun with the pool in a long, long time!



Here's one more:

From all the photos you have seen since the first chapter, you could tell that I had a lot of fun with this trip. Almost two months after the trip, I could still clearly remember the excitement and joy I had being with these guys.

Fun, excitement and joy. That's what a good trip is all about!

Thank you Dizfunqtional for making my trip to Port Dickson a highly memorable one.

Until next time, goodbye Port Dickson and hello to the sad reality of working life.

Now, where to next? I need another holiday trip already!

The Dizfunqtional Port Dickson Trip - Chapter 3

--------------------------------------------------------------
I've been really away, haven't I? I feel ill the last two weeks. It was the "Lazy" flu.
--------------------------------------------------------------

CHAPTER 3: THE NIGHT OF FOOD AND A CERTAIN EGG

Please read Chapter 1 here and Chapter 2 here.

I recalled not having lunch on that day. So after many hours at the swimming pool, I swore that I could eat a horse. No, I swore I could eat a horse as a starter!

Prior to this trip, Joshua told us of an awesome seafood restaurant in Port Dickson, simply called "Top Restaurant". He guaranteed us that the food's so great, all of us would loved it.



Well, he had a point. We arrived at the restaurant around 8.30p.m....by then we were so fucking hungry that we finished our six-dish dinner in like 10 minutes! With the exception of the crab, all the dishes was finished in less than a minute!

The best bit: For six dishes that included "pissing" prawns, large fish and fresh crabs...we only had to pay RM18 per person! CHEAP-NESS GRACIOUS! :D

We loved all the dishes, just like what Joshua would had predicted.

Unfortunately we were so hungry, we did not even bothered taking photos of the delicious food~! My bad...but you can't stop a starving guy from the food. ><



So if you happened to be visiting Port Dickson, ask the locals of this heavenly restaurant. Trust me, you'll love it like I love it!

Being the typical Malaysians though, the 18 Ringgit meal wasn't enough to stop us from visiting the PD night market and munch somemore on food.

Coconuts, jackfruits, ice-cream, crusted bread with peanut sauce filling...oh, Heaven!



We took a short walk to the PD beach while still enjoying our supper. It was great to chill out at the beach late at night, having a laugh with my mates and almost having sentimental / emotional thoughts.

Great night. Funny enough, alcohol wasn't really involved somehow.

Oh yea, remember the eggs? We placed it directly on the engine this time.


See the eggs hatching?

At last, the results were....



COOKED! We got ourselves a soft-boiled egg :)
