Very quickly

There is an infection to my right eye and it’s quite bad so this is going to be rather quick. 4 things I would like to share today.

First, remember this entry and this entry where people are dying from being a modern slave? Well, we are indeed dropping like flies. Check out the article below and pay attention to the last line. It’s just so true.
Secondly, Tunku Halim is organising a fun competition for his readers. For those who do not know, Tunku Halim is a reputable local author who has made a name for himself. He is currently organising a fun competition in relation to one of his book titled “44 Cemetery Road”. Details of the competition can be read here.

Thirdly, I have put up a new poll, go vote!! I am beginning to like this poll thingy. A total of 137 readers voted in the previous poll. A big word of thanks to you all.



So most of you like to think… hmmm… that’s really good. I must also applause many of you here whom I can call “thinking readers”. Your comments can sometimes be better than my blog entry itself. You know who you are... Kudos to you all and keep them coming!

Last but not least, anyone who would like to take up a role of an assistant instructor in a child learning centre teaching maths, drop me a comment leaving your mail. I will delete your comment after getting your mail if you do not wish to disclose it to the world. I will mail you the details. Oh… this job is in 1 Utama.

My eyes are hurting… need to rest. Goodnight everyone.

Quite a long entry i would say for a 'quick' one :P

I read this thing about the dead worker also some time back in mail forwards - freaky!

keep the polls coming and take care of your eyes ;)

Manal said...

Is that because of the contact lense, ur ailing right eye? I hope it's not a ketumbit, u know that boil sitting on top of the eyelid or nicely nestling on the eyebag.

Sunflower said...

Why no option for "all of the above" wan?! Susahnya want to pilih...

Acrelaine said...

yo.. i'm finally back.. replied ur msg on my blog.. newayz.. i'm so not in the mood to go online thanks to the connection speed plus the weather here... will comment here soon enuff!

-Princess Shin- said...

Hope you feel better! I always have eye infection! It happens once every year!!! *touch wood* hate it! Makes my eyes so small and swollen! Did you buy any medicine from the pharmacies?

Hhmm.. What job is that in One Utama? There got child learning center meh? The only one I know that is near there is Kumon and that's in Center Point!

I like the part about nudging your co-workers though. Sounds so morbid yet true! Haha.. Take care now and get well soon!

Little Ray said...

Get well soon =)

Seok Thong said...

First, the article from the last line is really true. It's just so unbelieveable that nobody really realize it. Can a person doesn't talk for 5 days? And then wearing the same clothes, same position..No reaction. It's WEIRD! It's obviously that the people in the company don't really care for each other, i mean like asking him to go for lunch or something.

Get well soon with your eyes and i've voted..

may said...

I'm surprised he hasn't started rotting! maybe the air conditioning was cold enough to keep him... err, "just nice". how sad he had to be discovered that late.

take care of those eyes!

flaminglambo said...

Told you 5 hours straight of internet porn has side effects. ;)

Take care mate.

Wuching said...

goodness, if i die i want everyone to know!

jaezrel said...

take care.......

ah nel said...

i fail math can i be tutor oso?

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

take care la..its appreciating that you still drop by @ my blog despite that eye sore haha..

Huei said...

i wann!! but um..full time job ar? pay good ka? =P got part time?

Hor ny Ang Moh said...

Wish u speedy recovery so that u can see good good! Have a nice day!

Nastasshea@Nesh said...

Hey I've heard of this case before about the one working too hard! Hahaha! Real sad knowing no one bothers about you when you work too hard! *Wink wink*

Eye infection? Having conjuctivitis is it? I got infected with conjuctivitis before and it was NO GOOD to me...

I wanna x-change linkx with uuuuuuuuu~~!!

mimi - C said...

1 - i tink it was circulating around email-land sometime back. it's a pity dat no one realised it as they're jz so absorbed in their own world. or mayb d guy was anti-social (jz a guess). if it was me n i didn't open my trap once a day (ok, it's more den once), ppl will start asking me if i'm ok (yes, not opening my big mouth means ders something seriously wrong with me)

2-eh... wat competition... malas la...

3-yes, yes... voted already... although you shud consider puttin in a all of the above... or maybe a %-age thingy wer we can vote how many percent we enjoyed each den the system ratio it out 4 u... better 4 u ma... (altho i dunno if u can do it dat way)

4-job... nai... i got me new job d... super free at the moment. am told to enjoy the freeness while it lasts...

5-better take care of ur eyes... (wat hv u been peeping at lately *hmmmm*)

i'm joking... take gud rest, drink plenty fluids, keep ur eyes of the pc, don use contact lens if ur eyes feel stingy (wear glasses instead), keep putting drops...etc.. (that's all i can think of at the moment

alan zed said...

don't work too hard, nobody notice anyway - so true. am taking to take it easy from now on. ;)

rinnah said...

Oh, an eye infection - that's nasty! Take rest, keep on puttin' those eye drops and get well soon, zewt!

In my ex-company, nobody used to talk to one another (and our tables are like side by side, like classroom) and the silence was so deafening you could hear a pin drop! So I guess they would be excellent candidates for George's colleagues.

ehon said...

wah! poor thing. die so long also no one knows about it..

get well soon man! and smart of u for doing all the polls. :P

lingzie said...

wow...how could it be possible that no one noticed that the guy did not move an inch during those 5 days???!
i'm definitely sharing this story with my friends!!

take care ya zewt...hope your eye gets better soon! :)

j or ji said...

Bro..

First.I never werk hard,only play hard.

Second,Theres no fun in competition (when u didnt win anything) but i'll check it up later.

third, i vote if it can change the Malaysian football team-ok,so,i'm not a 'thinking reader'.

Last but not least, can the instructor teach my daughter for free...education is expensive nowadays.:)

Sumtimes we dunno that our eyes cannot take it anymore...we keep looking at numbers,tiny2 numbers on pc skrin..then sakit mata! take care,mate!

-=SiN=- said...

Nowdays ar people just ain't friendly (fear of every shits) and sociable (tarak ngam key) as they used to be, unlike those days in the kampong; where everyone knows each other(they know your dogs name too).

working in a 4x4 cubicle in modern offices..it better to let the closest next cube knows your presence..even if you're antisocial. -.-

A simple "G'Morning!" will do. A little common courtesy for some sense of existance?


zwt: Get well soon.

Jessica said...

Hey, can you try to find one poll where it gives us the option to pick more than one?? (which basically means most of the entries are GOOD) but dun fly up too high in the air ok?? Come back down to earth when you're passed that high and mighty stage...hahahah!!!! Kidding!

irene said...

Hope your eye is better...

SuddenlyIDunnoWhoIM said...

hey, take care of ur eye. blink blink wif eye drops every 1 hour n cry a little, the germs will wash away LOL~ kidding. might s well consult doctor n my fren told me doctor will provide cream to apply. i wonder how CREAM can work on eye? but it really works..

as for the poll, many ppl suggested in above comments, i agree wif their idea too ^-^

Terra Shield said...

Quite a terrible thing to happen! Dying in the office!!

Guess that won't happen here where I work cos ppl are always running around

me said...

actually hor, if you think abt it, ppl are dying everyday, every second, every minute, every where. since we spend 8 hours out of 24hrs a day in the office, it's quite normal that there are people dying in the workplace or whilst doing work too, don't you think? and if you compare the statistics, NOT ENUF ppl are dying in the workplace if compared with....let's say on the roads...statistically saying, that is. workplace are equally hazardous, i think. *avoiding zewt's glare*

*nudges zewt hard to make sure zewt's still alive*

H.C. Tan said...

yea..my eyes hurt from staring at the pc so much also everyday

this job is permanent basis or voluntary? i mean, to help instruct children in math? am looking for something voluntary basis that i can go in during weekends to teach mayb math, language or anything I can help with to needy children/orphans. I don't know. Just thinking.

Rest well, zewt..

Rashikaps said...

Take care of your eye, dude.

Dead for 5 days and nobody noticed - How sad! I find it difficult to believe though. Thought of my quiet cubicle in the US office where I was working .. *suppressing a shiver*

Can't vote. You haven't included 'All the above' as an option. A good mix of topics is ideal. Keep going .. :)

zewt said...

LaSh - hey sir! haha... i took about 15 minutes to wrote that and to me... that was really quick :)

Manal - i dont wear contacts but ya, it's something like a boil at the kelopak there... looks like a pimple though.

sunflower - favourite mah... of cos must choose the best one you like la... haha...

Acrelaine - what's wrong with the weather here? i tot the weather in britain more depressin? hah... welcome back

Princess Shin - hi there. it's not kumon but similar to it. the role is more like a full time job. not for u la... you're leaving for better things in the states soon.

Little Ray - thanks bro.

zewt said...

seok thong - i guess in their culture... they just go to office to work and balik... dont care about others. cant blame them... work is not everything to most of them... so those who cares much... died... thanks for voting.

may - i tot so too. the company might have kept the air cond on 24 hours... or maybe the temperature is cool generally.

flaminglambo - blardy hell... hahahahaha....

Wuching - i think we all want that too. must be really sad to be discovered only after 5 days. what happened to the family?

jaezrel - sakit la.

ah nel - can... you think your teacher all pass everything?

TingTitLei said...

holy shit 5 days o_o doesnt his corpse smell or anything?

zewt said...

constant craver joe - when u talk about modern slavery... i sure read.

Huei - I think the job is more for kindergarten teacher... think you over qualified ler... :)

hor ny - see what ah? hahaha...

nastasshea - not conjuctivitis, it's something like a pimple at the eye lid. chinese believe that peeping ppl result in such thing. x-change then.

mimi-C - did it on purpose... for u all to choose the favouritest mah...

aSstHa - why is this thing always be associated with peeping act ah? hahahaha... as for the voting poll... have to say free poll are pretty limited. if i wanna enhance the feature, i wil have to pay so i guess we will have to bear with that for now...

zewt said...

alan zed - that's the problem bro... u work hard, nobody notices... you dont work hard... your boss will notice. haha

rinnah - wow... that kinda company is that? sounds like everyone doesnt like everyone. how can office be so quiet... it's weird.

ehon - cant wait for this eye infection to heal.

lingzie - yeah, i do find it absurd too. i guess ppl there just go in and work and not chat ... unlike us... haha...

jorji - free cannot la. ppl have to cari makan... haha... malaysian football... habis la... no hope already. SEA games also cannot win wanna play in asia cup... sigh.

=Sin= - i am glad i work in an open office concept where everyone can see everyone and if you're late... everyone will know. if you leave office on time... everyone knows too... which sucks. guess there's no perfect workplace.

jessica - eye too painful la... cannot fly. anyway, i purposely give 1 vote only la.

zewt said...

irene - hi there and welcome to AZAIG. yeah, hopefully i can recover soon. it's getting rather sore.

SuddenlyIDunnoWhoIM - i have seen the doc already. he did give me some cream... not working yet. as for the poll... i shall consider 2 votes next time.

terra shield - haha.. run around? like rush hour eh?

me - yes, i am still alive... and i will make sure you're dead when i see you... heh heh...

hc tan - it's more like a full time job or at least for a few months. if one likes children, this is an ideal job. but i wouldnt say the pay is anything to shout about. you're an engineer... too power ler... any friends. let me know.

rashikaps - hey... the word favourite has a meaning right? :)... there must be one favourite topic.

TTL - apparently not, or his colleague just doesnt care. not here in malaysia... cos malaysians are busy body... haha!

bubbly soda said...

All the best recovering!!! There is no wireless network in our rooms only in the cafeteria... It sucks!!! I cannot beronline for long long

conan_cat said...

died for 5 days and nobody notices?? my god, either the guy is really invisible or the company is darn ignorant! @__ooo = ="""" people dying at workplace i guess it's not the worst thing, just that the guy was left unnoticed for 5 days is really sad lor... dunno his family say what @__o

AngryYoungChild said...

Get well soon!

Rabbit said...

Wash eyes too much eh? See! Swollen already. =P

Get well soon ya!

cibol said...

dude .. u did some peeping in the toilet is it? LOL

zewt said...

bubbly soda - so this is our gomen effort in making our economy IT efficient... when our unis dont even have basic connection... sigh...

conan_cat - yeah, it puzzles me how come the family didnt say anything. i guess he was without family perhaps.

AngryYoungChild - thanks...

Rabbit - hmmmm.... your 'wash eyes' must have had different meaning.

cibol - shhhh... not so loud la.

day-dreamer said...

How are your eyes now? Better??

Regarding the first case, ewww... it's horrible. *wince*

mar said...

"Don't work hard. No one notices anyway."
I will keep that in mind...LOL...

Get well soon.

Annie said...

Good grief.. Eat something and take your vitamins.. Don't forget to hydrate yourself with water and you can work as many hours as you can, provided you also give yourself 5 hours of sleep a day.

It's the temptation thing again Zewt. People are "tempted" with the prize of more money/status/security... Should you miss this opportunity now, would it ever come back again? Would you regret not taking the chance to move ahead or move up? Before you get into the game and be tempted, one should truly write down what your limits and boundaries are first. When will you stop? When you start having heart palpatations? When sleep gets down to 4 hours a night? when the cholesteral level reaches 300? We must have create an imaginary line for ourselves as to how much is considered too much.

it's called personal accountability. Nobody can do it for you.

zewt said...

day dreamer - eyes still quite bad.... it's getting very itchy... arrggghhh!!

mar - yeah... i think we must all have that as a motto! haha...

Annie - 5 hours of sleep? that's all? :) anyway, yeah... i know what you mean. we must all learn to take care of ourselves and more importantly... we must all know our limitations. that's a very important thing to be aware of.

Tunku Halim said...

Hey Zewt - why got eye infection? Looking too much, ah? (Like my Manglish?)

Anyway, thanks for putting up the promo. If I had a heart attack at the keyboard, no one would notice too. I work alone, so no one to nudge me. :)

Bena said...

AW poor zewt... hope your eye is ok now...

AND HOLY SHIT. wouldnt they be able to sniff the smell of decomposing body?? damn sad.

I am so tired too :(
I am a slave to the GPA system. waah.

jaezrel said...

:S whee shitttt msia...konon....

zewt said...

Tunku Halim - you're welcome. i hope many will take part in it. as for manglish... maybe you should consider writing one totally in manglish...

Bena - GPA system slave better than working world slave... much much better ler. eye has healed completely! yay!

jaezrel - eh... wrong entry leh.

Annie said...

Wait.. You got an eye problem Zewt?

mmm... let me see.

a little closer

closer...
closer..

*POKE*...

Psych!

zewt said...

Annie - ouch!!!
