i’m GBP220 poorer

today i realize.maybe the rm1400+ is just not mine.Allah nak tarik rezeki itu..

just so u know, because of my careless mistake–by revealing the 3 numbers at the back of my credit card, the person tht i shud trust, the vendor, booked 4 rooms at london (suppose to be for the group.like hello,u shud’ve consult me before you book the rooms,duh) and they informed me while i was on the train,on my way to london, when i already booked a room of my own at another hotel.i asked them to do the cancellation right away.the usual hotel policy-in any case of no show,the person can be charged at full rate,so to say.

yesterday,checked my bill statement, i realized that the hotel charged me for the whole rate, GBP220 equiv to almost RM1500.means that they didnt do the cancellation.i made few phonecalls to the bank,contractor guy,vendor guy,hotel@london.this morning i send an email to the vendors.i thought this is just an easy peasy case-they’ll pay for my bills since they made the mistake,aite?

had a conv with my colleagues and they asked me to get advise from the boss as vendor might purposely did this just to make an excuse of me asking them to pay for my crdt card bills.huh!like, what will other ppl think if the vendor bank in RM1500 to my account?how does that sound?tak pasal2 kena domestic inquiry;(
so i shoot another email to the boss.asking for his advice.

having said that,i kinda made up my mind.am just gonna pay for the RM1400+.tho earlier on i was thinking of obviously-i’m-not-going-to-pay-bcoz-of-other-ppl’s-mistake,but thinking of the consequences to me later,by the organization, i would just pay for that.unless there is other solution.police report,perhaps?

my ow my…how sad i am.but come to think of it like i mentioned earlier, the RM1400+ is really not mine.maybe He’ll replace the rezeki with something more valuable, inshaAllah..

moral of the story – never ever reveal the 3 numbers at the back of your crdt card!or your password or anything tht can lead to this kinda crime (crime,huh?).my bad

its done.period.

esok cuti,finally ;p

part of life

began at nine.ended at three.six hrs of interview.two IRs.hundreds of questions bombarded.earlier on, row of nightmare dreams and sleepless nights.am not complaining.am blessed.praise be to Allah.its over.for now at least.alhamdulillah.i just need some rest 🙂
mind u, this is not naik pangkat interview like some ppl think.it is called skill gap assessment. its gonna be annual ‘event’ if i’m not mistaken—
need to have an early sleep tonight.like seriously

uk1

menariknya ttg international airport ni,u need to take a special bus from the gate to the plane itself.but that depends on the destination la kan.coz they have loads and loads of flight destinations, esp for schiphol airport amsterdam which is the hub of europe countries 🙂

uk2

ow itu adalah amsterdam dr pandangan atas hehe

jadiknya sampai di norwich dlm 9am+.duk cari taxi etc, smpi hotel,premier travel inn dlm kul 10+.since cek in kul 2pm,so sy dan ade sorang pakcik vendor ni pun pi la bjalan2 kat norwich city centre which is just 5minutes walk fr the hotel.i took all relevant maps at the airport.senang kalau sesat;) norwich is a very nice place.countryside.the buildings look almost the same.there are loads of churches,monuments.the city is not as busy as kl.haha.tenang je.bes woo kalau gi honeymoon sini.oops.wheather dia pun ok la.ms sy gi tu musim spring nak ke summer.temp still below 20degC…nice..tak ssejuk winter kots..

uk3

sebelum fly aritu smptla google carik muslim food yg ada kat norwich.jumpe ada few indian restaurants kat magdalene street.so dh agak2 lapa tu,try la carik street tsebut.rs cam terharu gile sbb nmpk ‘ali tandoori’ tu ujud.haha.klaka…so blasah la tandoori+nan sepinggan..

uk4

at the same day jugak pegi railway station kat prince of wales street utk bli train ticket to london.balik kl amik from london.which is 2hrs train from norwich…:) lps luch tandoori tuh,mata dh ngantuk.maklumla ms tu kalau ikut time mesia dh dkt kul 10pm.inilah namanye jetlag ye kwn2…haha.elok je cek in,solat jama’ zuhr+asr,stat la tido……smpi la 9jam seterusnya.bgn solat jama’ mgrb+isya’…smbg lg 3jam…solat subuh kul 3pg…pastu taleh tdo dah.hehe.cube tdo gk sbb takut msh jetlag tp x mampu….huhu..ow btw the hotel is superb, 74pound/nite..kami duk situ 2 mlm…

28th may
testing day.my boss arrived as well as mmhe ppl.so meriahla sikit korum.hehe.norwich to thetford dlm 40mins.menariknye taxi kat sini, diorg pakai gps yg bcakap!canggih giler.mcm kagum je.the driver will key in the address/postcode in the system,n then voila, the gps will start ‘talking’.how cool is that!jakun~ so we came back at about 3pm-carik mkn/lunch.kdai sume tak bukak lg.yg ade kdai runcit jek.ali tandoori pun msh tutup.huhu.so kami sume pulang ke hotel dan oder vegi pizza n some jacket potatoes.telan je lah.ms tu tgh lapa.nikmatnya..~

hoho.bgn awl.excited sgt sbb nak gi london!!my train at 7.10am.will arrive at liverpool street,london…:) ow, i bought big packet of maltesers for my breakfast.n also a pack of potato crisps!:)

uk8

ni mase mule2 sampai.sampai london dlm 9.45am.lambat sket sbb railway tu ade problem sket…tu yg delay.hmm.then fr liverpool street, i bought daily pass for circle line.mind u, london ni ada almost 20 different tubes.mcm kalau kat kl kan ada monorel,star,putra lrt,komuter kan.kira ada 4 kan.london ade berbelas/berpuluh2!kalu tgk map nye,berselirat mcm2 kaler utk mcm2 lines/tubes.supercool~

uk9

so i took circle to bayswater station.i googled this like a wk before the trip.so excited!!!i memorized all the relevant stations and the landmarks/popular destinations related ie big ben,london eye,london bridge… 🙂 it took me almost an hour before i reach holiday villa huhu.’thanks’ to the website saying tht the hotel is VERY nearby to Hyde Park and Bayswater road which is like along the road yg sgt panjang huhu.believe it or not, i was sweating in the middle of london!ms tu panas.even angin sejuk tp kalau dh stgh jam pusing2 mane tak bpeluh kan.haha.but it was an experience la…memorable sgtt!!:)

uk10

lps tinggal kan suitcase kat hotel, bjalan la semula ke bayswater..duh,circle rosak la pulak.so plan B nye adalah amik bus.tanya punya tanya, sy pun amik bus no 148 heading towards westminster city – ada wensminster abbey, london eye and big ben!!yay!!!:) org sgtlaa ramai!!ms tu cuaca dah sejuk sikit.matahari dah ilang.hehe.so amik la gmbr byk2…mmg itu je tujuannye ;p nak naik london eye mmg tak sempat sbb org ramai n masa pun tak mngizinkan huhu.xpe,mungkin kalau ade rezeki lg inshaAllah..

uk11

next destinations – tower hill, tower bridge, london bridge, trafalgar square, oxford street(shopping heaven!) and some historical monuments…interesting indeed.balik hotel nak dekat senja.ish2 anak dara ni…haha.nway,subhanallah,tak pernah bygkan akan jejakkan kaki kat bumi UK lagi lepas meninggalkannya lebih 20thn lepas..hmm..tak terkata hepi nye.alhamdulillah…ngeee~
