My Day with CA & I Think I Got a Job

My day with CA played out similar to last times we met at Pantip plaza, meaning just shopping and no sex :p

He did not had a lot of time, so we just browse through one video store, have our meal at S&P and that's it. I tried to have him comment on my arse but he did not notice :p

Earlier that day, the job agency called to tell me that the job interview I had yesterday was probably not gonna happen. Which is might as well, as the job sounds too much for me. I had chat with the person in the position I would be in if I can be. As it turns out position would be more secretarial job, with a lot of book binding, tremendous stress, and a lot of coming to work early and leave way pass the working hours (60% of the times to be exact from the estimation of the guy whom I will be working for).

Anyway, the job agency also offer me a job and have me done a test. I work on it for about 3 hours or more in total. And the results? I guess you can guess it from the post title.

It will paid less than what I used to get, plus I will also works half day on Saturday and 4 months probation. After some consideration... I guess this is quite good chance for me to be doing something, as I think I began to get used to the routine of not working :p

Here comes CA

CA arrive late last night, he sent me SMS to notify me of his arrival and ask if we can meet on Tuesday. I call him after I sent reply SMS and we chat a bit. He said that he will be quite busy on Monday with his business and going to Pantip plaza.

So our initial plan was to meet at BTS station near MBK mall, but as I call him today to tell him to look for Flash drive as they are quite cheap now. He said he already got three of those :P and said that he would like to visit Pantip plaza again. So now the plan is to meet him at Pantip plaza, do a quick tour then went to MBK mall, browse around a bit, go to eat at Daidomon and perhaps persuade him to come back to place so I can try to have my way with him :P

The Darn Weather

Bangkok is back in the state, when it is hot like summer if it's not raining even for just one day. I wish it would rain everyday though... Or rather everynight...

Also right now I have to resorts to wearing long pajamas pants. Because my feet and my left leg became spotty and red from the mosquitoes bites (15 places ranging from half a centimeters to one cent.) and scratchings. I have to wear them partly to stop exposing my vital parts to the minute demons, Mosquitoes.

I never hate them more than right now... I sincerely think that the world would be a much better place if all mosquitoes would become extinct. I do not mind that much that they feed on my blood but what bothers me is that they seems to be ungrateful bastard who rather feed and leave quietly, they just have to leave poison to bother their feeders. In my opinion, that's just plain evil.

Moreover, I have notices long time ago, that fluorescent light is quite hot. You can try this by only turn on the light without the fan (Perhaps this would only works in tropical countries) and you will start sweating buckets. So right now, I am typing in the dark with the light from my LCD monitor. It's not good for my eyes that's for sure...

Right now, the only thing I am looking forward to, is the visit from SC in the first week of June. I made a plan to show him MBK mall for his gay movie (real movies not porns :p) quest and BBQ buffet at Daidomon. And later a meal at my place, hopefully he will give me some sugar for desert :P

The Third Pirates

Today is the first day of the third Pirates movie be in theater, since I am now unemployed :p, I am able to see it.

The movie is, to describe it in one word, would be "Grand" or "Epic" size. The scale of the movie Huge with a few twists and turn in the plots as usual. We will see the rescue party traveling to 'World's End' just like in the old Westerns believe that the world was flat, the pirate conclave, and a bit of Singapore.

I will not say much about the plot though, so it will not be a spoiler post. In conclusion, I do think it worth the ticket cost :)

Now I am eagerly awaiting the releasing of Transformers.

Not Much News

Since I am unemployed I guess I lost a lot of angst to write about, or perhaps it is because I spend most of my free time playing World of Warcraft :pp

I must say it is quite an addictive game, beyond the usual level grinding there are professions to grind as well. I started with Undead Mage and now I also have Troll Shaman and Blood Elf Paladin :pp

I also began to exercise a bit, by doing push up against my chair (a folded up wood chair). It is an exercise scheme I saw John Travolta did on Tonight's Show with Jay Leno, saying that it was the training he was required to do for the movie 'Swordfish' because, and quote 'the director said to me "Sorry John, but we can't have fat spy"' :P

So far I did it on and off... About 10-20 times or until my arms are too sore to do more and then rest for a day or two and continue. I don't think it will be very effective but at least I can say I did some excercise

A Local Product

Since I do not know what to blog about, I decided to blog about a local product named 'Utai refreshment drop'.

I am quite sure there is no English word for this. But it is herbs and flowers extract, used by added a few drops in drinking water for refreshing scent and aroma. I remembered that I used to hate it when I was a kid.

Usage: Add a few drops into a glass of water and drink it. It will dye the color pale red. However the color does stick, (I once trying to bath with it, luckily I use my hand to mix it first and found out that the color does not wash off). So the company that produce this also sell this product with roll-on ball on the cap, as cosmetic item as a rouge/lipstick replacement for youngsters. Since it is long lasting, natural, and show red color.

An All Nighter

Last night was pretty unusual for me. I am not the type that spend the night in club, dancing to mind numbing techno beats. But I have obligation and I did not mind, it was nice to be out of the house and be in the crowd for a change, even if I thought 'Man, this is not really my scene'

A friend of mine will be in BKK for a several hours before his next flight to Phuket. Since he did not wants to spend the time in the airport, we agreed to meet in Silom so I can take him to the local gay club. He is an Italian-American from D.C., he had been working in Hanoi for the pass two weeks and he is having the vacation in Phuket along with his friend who is a woman.

The plan was for him to call me once he arrive at the airport to let me know when to leave the house and we will meet at McDonald in C.P. Tower in Silom which open 24 hours. He call at 23:15, just as I finish dressing up and heading out. It was good timing too, since I can still use subway to go to Silom.

To my surprise, when I arrive at McDonald, D.C. and his friend were already there. After greeting and chatting up getting to know each other a little better, we went to D.J. Station the famed gay club. They were having a good time, with drinks in hands and a foreigner chatting them up. In my case, it was a so so time. Since I do not drink, smoke, nor dance, I have little to do besides watching people. It was Thursday night, after midnight, and it was packed.

At about 2:30, the guy who chat up my friend has invited us to go to another club called G.O.D. with them. We left with him and a few of his friend. The location was in the same avenue as Freeman, only Freeman seems to have been gone and G.O.D. is in its place. The entrance fee was two and half times more expensive than D.J. although we gets two drinks. Inside there was a big stage on one side and a small catwalk from the stage connecting to the D.J. booth in the middle of the floor. There was also a cage on the far side of the stage. There were a few buff guys dancing on stage and in the cage in skimpy undies and it was quite clear that they were the club's staff. There were quite a few other guys who were dancing on stage without their shirt as well. D.C. friend was having a great time dancing on the catwalk and she beckon D.C. to dance on the stage as well :P By now I notice the staff's t-shirt and realize that G.O.D. stands for Guys On Display, hence, the dancers.

The place was still half pack when we gets there around 2:45, but by 3:20 it was packed. It seems that people leaving D.J. had came to this club for more drinks and dance. It was after 4:00 that I have to reminded them that they should go back to the airport. D.C. friend wants to leave at 4:30 but I reminded them that it was raining earlier and it might make it slower to gets to the airport.

They really enjoy their time and thanks me profusely for taking them out. We promise to hang out again if they visit BKK again.

An Ending Chapter

Tonight is my last night at work.

It is certainly not what I had in mind... At least not like this... Not without having something to fall back on or moving on to. Perhaps this is the push I need to make that 'moving on to' happen. Right now I have a mixed feeling of nervousness and relieve. Nervous because it is like I am being thrown out into the real world to fend for myself, and relieve because no more torturous time table and stringy boss.

My mom had pretty much order me to look for job right away. Although I felt like resting for a week or so I do understand that looking for job will be long and hard and it will left me with the rest time I wants anyhow. Afterall, I have been looking for job for the past five years, albeit not very seriously, and I have not been able to landed one yet. Therefore, I am having a sense of dread with my future.

My mom has been pushing me to either opening up some kind of shop in the space we have on the ground floor or seriously get a new job. She also tell me with a straight face that with my age it would be difficult to find a new job. Yesterday, she also informed me that there is a big demand of English teacher in China, and that I should seriously considered this. It sounds quite alright at first, but after giving it some thought, I doubt that it would be a good plan. First, I do not speak Chinese in any dialect. Second, from what I heard China is not a very hospitality country, you would have to watch your belongings (your luggage that is not in front of you, is not considered yours) people do not do queue and they pretty much care for themselves.

It seems that right now, it is like I am being thrown out of a slow sinking ship into a raft in the middle of the ocean. That eventhough I am not drowning just yet, but if I am not able to find something soon I will certainly be dead.

Finally Made Me Happy

I first saw this music video a few days ago, just catching the ending of it no less but the name came up as Macy Gray featuring Natalie Cole. Now I am always love duet songs so I knew I would have to find this song.

Old School yet contemporary

Needless to say I love this song. Especially toward the end, it's the kind of song that you would just love to belt it out against human size speakers :)
