I'm finally back in the blogosphere! You'll never imagine how happy Jenn & I were when we finally got our internet connection yesterday! OMG...never knew we were so dependent on the internet until we were deprived of it. o.O
So what have I learnt for the past week?
I've learnt that:
- It isn't easy staying outside by your own
- The quality of customer service here in Australia is somewhat similar (or SLIGHTLY better) than in Malaysia
- Internet is so important for us to keep in touch with people, especially family & friends
- Patience is very much needed when facing frustrating situations
- Everything happens for a reason
So I was complaining to dad about how bad the customer service was regarding our phone line. The conversation below took place:-
Me: OMG, papa...you know, I always thought customer service overseas would be wayyy better than Malaysia...yadda yadda yadda...aiyo! Mana tau, they transfer you to this guy, then that guy, then this...blah blah blah...in the end the problem is still not solved! Then, we had to waste our mobile phone credit calling & calling...yadda yadda yadda...
Dad: *speechless* *laughs* Erm...I don't know what to say.
Me: No need to say anything, just listen can adee.
Dad: *laughs* That was what I've been experiencing all these years lo...People here also transfer you here & there. Takes ages to settle a matter.
Me: Really?! Hmm...I guess so. But at least you have the financial status to pay for bills & stuff. I'm only a poor student, having to pay for credit. Argh!
Dad: Haha...Welcome to the real world!
Me: Oh...I feel so welcomed!
Personally, I think that conversation was really funny. So now I've experienced what staying outside alone is like. =S Believe it or not, I think I've told Sue this before - Evertime I do my laundry/cooking, I'll think of mommy; when I have problems with the lights/heavy things, I'll think of dad. XD
On another note, I can't seem to get into the full swing of starting my assignment yet. Argh! I know that the deadline is drawing nearer & nearer but I just simply do not have the motivation to start. OMG!
p/s: Really missing everyone back home! I'm not saying it for the sake of saying it. I really mean it from the bottom of my heart! =)
