It's going to be 2 weeks since i reached here... I never enjoy a single moment in Iran during my stay. I just wanna to go back to Malaysia as soon as possible. BTW, my engineer and I are taking a break in Doha, Qatar and will be back to Iran again for another week. Sigh~
"I wish i could go back to the civilization, back to my life in Malaysia" then my engineer told me i sound like another ex-colleagues of ours who handle this job before me. We were laughing out loud coz all of us have the same feeling as the previous person who came here for business trip.
Don't put me wrong that i say this place is not civilization. Actually they have good facilities but the only things we are required to worked 7 days a week and we hardly got nice food, we hardly got the time to go out. No gym, no Starbie, No McD, No Redbox, No no no ....
My life over here is just Office ==> Hotel ==> Office. The hotel advertised that they have gym and swimming pool but none of them is functioning. I was so disappointed and depress with days without gym :(
Please bring me back to the civilization city... I wanna to go back...

Saturday is a Monday for Iranian... I'm going back to the battle ground again :( what to do i need to fight. Work over in Iran is not as easy as other country... everyday like a battle ground, everything also need to fight. It's going to be a hectic Saturday again. The demanding customers sure come and ask for more stuff but we are given so little resources to operate. There are so many restriction in the country especially in the telecommunication. I slowly learn how to manage under these restricted resources and so many rules and regulation situation.
Anyway, enough of ranting and i have to get ready and move on to the office now. Ciao~
Have a nice Weekend to the rest of the world eh~

Banana in Iran is huge and nice...
I sneaked out one huge banana from the breakfast place in the hotel... This was my snack for the day. Hmmm... if you asked me how this banana taste, i would tell you it didn't taste as good as banana in Malaysia.
Anyway, after eating this huge banana i still felt hungry, what should i have for dinner?
Whenever we travel, what we would like to do is to taste the food of that country. So do i...
Few days back my big boss brought us to a nice Iranian restaurant. This was not the first time i had Iranian food because i had Iranian food everyday for lunch since the day i stepped into the office. Why? Cause the office that i worked in, provide us Iranian pack lunch.
Anyway, let's go back to the Iranian restaurant. The moment we walked in i felt so Iran as the smell and they played the Iranian song... it's a very nice ambiance and lots of Iranian actually dine inside. We are the only Non Iranian :p
This is the first time i ate goat neck... and the Iranian rice is so yummy. Guess what? the beer you can drink as much as you like and you will not get drunk... It's actually Malt with some favor like Apple, Peach etc.
So anyone can guess how much was the dinner cost in Iran Rial?

It's going to be one week when i first arrived in this unique country. This is my first time to work with the people from this side of the world. I have been through two times of culture shock which basically i was just stoned in front of my customers, my big boss and my engineer when my customers claimed that i didn't send her even a single report which i did from time to time. What an embarrass moment. Luckily, my big boss and my engineer knew that i did my job.
As all of you know i was a person of knowing how to attack and defense well when come to customers service and complaint in Malaysia. But i don't know why i was so stoned and defenseless when i am here in Iran. My big boss was not happy as i failed to defense myself even though i have done my job. My reputation in the company has dropped *sob sob*.
You must be thinking why should we need to defense ourselves when working with the Iranian. Working with Iranian basically you need to be firm and have a mindset of "Don't give in without a fight". If you have this mindset, basically you are qualified to work with them and you will not be stressed out or stoned like me... :p

If you not noticed Iran weekend drops on Thursday and Friday. I was working from the hotel for the past two days to close as many issues as possible. This business trip was not an enjoyable basically i have to work 7 days a week *sob sob*.
The weather is beautiful out there for the past two days but unfortunately no way that i could tour around Tehran. I was stuck in the hotel and working from 10am till late night on solving all the problem of the systems. Hopefully next weekend will be a better weekend for my engineer and I... We wanted to see Tehran.
Gotta get ready for my work today... Ciao.

Good morning everyone, I arrived in Iran 4 hours back. It was a tiring trip and later i still need to go to my client office. It's not fun at all for this trip as i have to share a queen size bed with my engineer. So i don't know how to sleep tonight. Anyway, we are going to try to switch to a room with 2 Twin Bed. Hopefully the arrangement can be done. :(
The moment i board the flight @ Dubai. My guts feeling has told me that the people of this country will not be easy to deal with... So for the coming 2 weeks i might be suffering with all the culture shock at the same time, i might need to go through another round of mind torturing. This could be my 2nd test for working with this group of people.
Anyway, i gotta take a nice hot shower and take a nap before heading to my client office afternoon. Ciao~
ps: Confirmed the Facebook is blocked...
After 6 hours flight from KL to Dubai. Finally, i'm @ Dubai now. The internet speed in Dubai airport is so fast compare to KLIA. Anyway, this might be my last post before going into Iran and i might not be able to post any update until i touched down in Dubai again. Hmmm... don't ask me why but i heard from my colleagues that Iran govt might block blogspot and others website.
Anyway, will try to take some picture to share with you. Ciao~

I went to KLCC for pilate class. The pilate class was a nice one... The instructor Ethan was focusing on me. Maybe i was one of his student that could perform those high difficulty position. Blek~ Anyway, it was a nice session and i feel soreness now. Too bad, i would need to skip his class on the coming two Saturday.

TZ would like to sing the song "Manic Monday" coz his Monday usually is so hectic and sometime really out of control for the past three months. Just don't talk about the Monday blue.. TZ has no time for Monday blues. Need to move on with lots of explanation and conference call with his demanding and barbarian customers... :(
Hope today is better than last week... but i really doubt so...
So How's your Monday... Monday color is always have to be BLUE... what would do to change the Monday color?

I was on my way from the carpark to the gym... I came across a billboard stated "Do you spend more or save more during a sales period?" I personally thinks that one is pending more than saving... :p
So what is your take? Are you a shopaholic?
Swap swap swap until end of credit
Cry Cry Cry until get the helping hand.

I was having lunch @ One-U yesterday with my colleagues. After lunch i decided to drop by the yellowman center to sign up iPhone. I waited for 20 mins and finally the lady was free to attend me. So i asked a couple of question to clear my doubts and so excited to get my very first iPhone 3Gs.
