AIO. In Person.

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. 

For those who are not familiar with this "candy" incident, feel free to read about it: http://nurisfahanishashim.blogspot.com/2011/06/me-and-my-new-stool.html
