My colleagues and I went to Teluk Gong for dinner tonight. We left immediately after work and drove there. It is located near Klang and quite famous for seafood. The reason for the treat is because someone in my team had recently gotten a promotion. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce some of my new colleagues.
Firstly, there is our big sister. If you can imagine having an elder sister at work, she will probably fit the bill. Incidentally, she is the exact same age as my elder sister. We are quite close. Then, there is the only other man, who is currently an expectant dad. His baby is due in a few weeks time. He is quite the opposite of our big sister and is quite gentle of character. Next, there is another lady, the little girl of our group who behaves in a sweet innocent manner. She likes the colour pink and has that as her default colour. Then, there is a liberal Malay lady who is the product of our religious school system. In fact, I think that she is quite spiritual in her own way, but not overtly religious about it. Finally, there is a quiet Malay lady who is getting married next week. I got an invite and plan to go there with my DSLR to get a few photos. And then, there is my boss and he is a really interesting person. He is the kind of boss who understands what needs to be done to get things working. To resolve technical disputes, we usually bet on lunch.
While my previous group of colleagues were really nice and weird people, this new group is just down-right crazy and we love to eat. The most surprising thing is that my new team really knows where to eat. We have been to restaurants that are so well hidden that I would not have ever found them on my own. According to my colleagues, everyone puts on weight when they first join this group, just like the Nooglers.
PS: It is impossible to lose weight in Malaysia!
