So there I was at the office, in my sweater looking like a boy from behind, doing work (yeah right).
Suddenly I heard everyone saying "Hi boss. Selamat Hari Raya.."
I turned back and saw.... Ahmad Izham Omar. AHMAD IZHAM OMAR. Ahmad. Izham. Omar!!!!!!! He was walking around, saying Selamat Hari Raya to everyone.
Finally he came to my desk. I said to myself, "Don't be nervous, just introduce yourself. Don't be shy. You have to stand out to be remembered!"
So I got up, greeted him, "Hi boss. Selamat Hari Raya."
He smiled and replied, "Selamat Hari Raya."
"I'm new," I said. See how I tried to prolong that conversation? Genius.
"Oh? When did you join?" he asked.
"1st July," I replied.
"Oh that's really new. Welcome! And enjoy your Raya break soon," he said, continued to smile.
"Thank you and you enjoy your Raya break too, boss," I said. I was smiling so wide I think I started to look like The Joker.
And then he went away.
Then I thought to myself. He is lucky it's Ramadan. If not I would've offered him a "candy". Now THAT would make him remember me for the rest of his life.
