Playing Host

Last weekend, I played host two an American executives. She's visiting the team here. Naturally, playing host cost money - money that cannot be claimed. SIGHHHHH... Anyway, that is not what I wanted to say in this post.

This evening, in 1 Utama, my host was intrigued by the OSIM iGallop, an exercise machine which one rides on it, as though riding a horse. My guest was thrilled by it and she realized the "implications" to the naughty minds. She was excited, claiming that she has never seen one like this in the USA. But that is not what I wanted to say in this post.

What I wanted to say is that as I was watching the salesman pushing the iGallop to her, something occur to me. I do a quick math in my head and was horrified to realize that what my American executive made in a month, converted to RM, is what this salesman make in TEN years! Can you imagine how disgusting this is? This poor chap, talking enthusiastically to sell her the iGallop, can talk for 10 years and still could not make as much as she did in a month.

GOSH...

And I just paid for dinner!

GRRR!
