The long and short about The Chinese New Year Greeting



Updated!


I received this message from someone whom I did not expect to hear from ever again, on CNY eve:

“Sian, they say I’ll get very bad luck if I don’t settle my debts before CNY. Since I don’t want to get any bad luck, I think it’s only responsible for you to write off my debts now.”

And that’s the reason why I don’t like to lend people money :(


With Love,
Sibeh Sian

P.S. Before I forget again, I’ll like to wish everyone a very Happy Chinese New Year. May your pockets be overflowed with ang pows! And please wish me luck because I'm going for a job interview now, heh.

Update:

Hi all, I'm back from the interview. Except that I didn't really went to one because the office was closed when I reached the place just now. A frantic call to the contact person revealed that they extended the office holiday break, and she was very sorry because she forgot to tell me about the cancellation.

Walau. I don't think they will let me claim my cab fare :(

    good grief, it(the solution) is so simple. no wonder why ad is abusing u all the time for being so slow!

    tell him that you've been fancy him for a long time, and if he can sell his bum to you, you will consider. this way you'll never have to put up with stupid calls from him again. it wont do anything worse to your reputation - since you don't have any.

    don't try to flirt with your potential employer, unless you'like a free trip to break-butt mountain.

    best of luck with your interview, you will need it.

    wah, wat kind of company is that... eh you shld just forget about the job with the company.
    on another note, the company already treats you badly even before you join the company... very typical of treating SBS... =D

    Two things- First, I don't think you should lend money, especially significant sums, to people of dubious character.

    Second, I dreamt that your fans came over to my blog and started insulting me because I insulted you.

    Both disturb me enough to want to tell you about it.

    By the way, have a Happy Chinese New Year. Good luck for the interview.
