Weekly Bernard News

I realized I haven’t been posting for more than a week now. So I thought I’ll just compile all the highlights of my past week into one post and fashion it after a news segment ala Bernard. How brilliant is that?


26 NOV – 1 DEC 2006: The author spent most of his time under house arrest due to the financial crunch which came about as a result of 2 months spent bumming around. Savings were at an all time low, unemployment was at 100%.

Visited a few bars with friends and mooched off their bottles. The author recorded no outflow of capital from his treasury reserves. Venture was a complete success.


2 DEC 2006: The author went for an MCA Whitewater Rafting and Abseiling Trip to Gopeng Perak, courtesy of the Under-35 MCA Division and Datuk Lee Hwa Beng.

Members paid good money to sit in small, rubber boats while charging towards large menacing rocks. The author suffered an off-boat excursion due to a particularly large and nasty drop. Due to the author’s hardy frame and ultra-muscular build, no injuries were sustained.

The crowd cheered and clapped wildly as the author heroically hoisted himself back onto the boat with one hand, while the other hand fought off an angry 25 foot crocodile.

Author was awarded a gold medal for bravery.


3 DEC 2006: Janice Yap participated in the annual MRSC Song Writing Competition and walked away with a medal for 2nd runners up.

The event was a great success and it managed to attract top talent from throughout Malaysia.

During the event, the author put to rest the oft-asked question “What is the maximum number of SMS you can send in an hour?” The answer - five hundred and eighty five.


4 DEC 2006: Work commenced, and the day was spent familiarizing self with company operations, goals and strategies. Bidding farewell to cubicle-dom, the author finally got his own office. Spirits were high, mood was jovial.

Spent the rest of the day thinking of ways to decorate the office.

Decided that whiteboards were tacky and crossed it out from the ‘list-of-things-to-hang-on-the-wall’.

A sponge-board will look much nicer!

The End.
