All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth, my two front teeth…

It’s the time of the year again, some of my Christians friends are already in the Christmas mood, and some have started hunting for gifts. Its also the time of year my company is organising a Christmas exchange gift. Yes we do it every year except for last year where everyone was busy. Those who are interested or would like to get into the mood will give their names to the person-in-charge. Those names would later be put on a small piece of paper and place in a container where those who are joining will pick a name, just a name. You cannot put back that name back if you don’t like what you’re getting and pick another one. That cheating! After picking a name, you’ll have to buy that person a gift and also a gift for the person who are giving you a present. So everyone is going back with two presents!

 

I remember when we first stated this, it’s was back in 2003, the year I was attached to this company. My ex-colleague Angie, whom stated working with the company in that same year and also my school junior came up to me and asked whether I’m interested with the idea. I was all so excited, never done it before, thinking of hunting for a gift might be fun, and it is up until today. So we went all over the office, explaining how it would be done, you might say we were the ones who started this in the office. She left the company early of this year, working with Auto Bavaria KK. Lucky girl hehehe…

 

Anyway, the first year, everyone was supposed to give a present to whom they have picked, no give back present, fearing it might back fired.

Not much gift back then but seeing those happy smiles and office bonding was worth it.

So the second year, when everyone sees how much fun it was to do gift exchange, we make that “front and back” present rule. Everybody was into it.

As I mentioned earlier on, we didn’t do it last year. This year, I hope it would be much more fun and joy, the company has seen a few who left for better opportunities, and more new face (have to convert half of the conference room to expand Engineers room). To the person wearing (let me see now…) maroon, white, light green and red baby-T, thank you for bringing the idea to the office. I’ll be coming to your new office to have that free Coffee and camwhoring with a few of your babies’ hehehehe.
 

Now! To the person who pick my name, let me make it easier for you to find my gift. It’s not big, in fact, it’s micro size, a 4GB micro SD to compliment my Nokia E71. Or if you can’t get that, I want two car hand phone holder, each for my Nokia E71 and Nokia 6120. And please, give me some clue as to what gift you want me to return back. OK? Whose name I picked? It’s a secret; I’ll disclose it after the Gift Exchange later on.

 

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
