Lose Face Value

Can you feel the love tonight?

People say that first impressions are important and correct. Well, I hope not!!!

This morning, during my first ever meeting with THE MD, my tummy started to make loud noises. Like REALLY LOUD NOISES!!! I remember nodding my head, staring at my MD’s face, and scrutinizing every facial movement to see whether he noticed it too. Grumble grumble! Haiyoh, did he hear that???

I looked down in my diary, scribbled some important facts here and there, and then noticed that the tea lady finally strolled in the meeting room with a delicious spread of pastries and coffee. Tiba-tiba, my direct boss who sat next to me whispered, “Go grab some and eat. Your stomach is bising.”

during my first meeting with new director of our centre, i knew we will get on like a house on fire. We all sat down to coffee and he announced he takes four sugars. And I knew we have something in common!

"go grab some and eat", tu ok lagi but "your stomach is bising"?! maluuu.
And we always thought we can cover the grumbles so well, and have this belief of "orang lain tak dengar i bet". How we are soo wrong :)

Anywayz, everybody faced something like that at one point or another in their life, we are biological creatures after all. As embarassing as it was, I'm sure everybody can totally relate.
