Smiling is contagious

Have you heard that before? When you smile at someone, it is nearly impossible for that person to frown back at you. In fact, he will most likely smile in return....unless he was in the middle of a divorce or something like that....

Standing for 6 hours straight can get very boring and sometimes induce suicidal thoughts...but that’s just my job.

For those of you who don’t know, I recently hooked up with Levis jeans part time as a sales assistant

At times, when there are no more jeans left to fold, all a sales girl can do is stand and wait for customers.

And this is when you practice smiling.

In a day about 500 people pass by our Levis store; old people, families, kids, couples, Harajuku chicks, =.=, people going to the gym, friends, cleaner ladies, karats, workers, and crazy people.

Family outing

 And something they’re all capable of doing is smiling.

So I smile at every one of them because it’s free AND because I hate passing by a shop and seeing bored sales assistants staring into space...

So how many smile back?

Have you ever had a random person smile at you? Do you smile back?

As a sales assistant I have become that random person.

For some people it’s a bit weird, and I get the raised eyebrow a lot or the are-you-looking-at-me look....theres also the completely nonexistent-smile look....

But for some, its so simple to smile or grin back...and no I’m not talking about the karats...

Standard Karat Smile

A lot of times my friends at work ask “oh you know her issit?”
me: "No I don’t. She knows how to smile that’s all."

 So the next time you see a normal looking person on the street, 
donate a smile today!...god knows the world needs to smile more.

When Liza Hits the Road!

"You've gotta just do it. Force yourself or you're not gonna get anywhere"

 Hello everybody, my hair smells burnt, probably due to all that straightening. Boo hoo.

Anyway my friend Jes recently took some time off to give me a few much needed driving lessons.

Before that, I had been crawling around my block at 10km/h and I thought I was making excellent progress!

“How long are you gonna go round the same houses?”

I dunno.

“Okay I’m taking you driving”

So off we the big and scary world of .....


Bring it  on!!

You Smart You Swerve...

Sometimes as I looked down and stared at my retarded gear stick that refused to change....drove into the lalang fields...jes screamed at me

As I came to a stop in the middle of the busiest junction in town, my car engine would pass away peacefully ...others HONKED at me.

Drove on gear 4 with a speed of 20km/h....others zoomed past me...

Nearly killed a man and daughter.....I smiled and waved....

haha love this... no disrespect

                              Manual Mayhem!!!

I guess its going to be a while before I can wind my screen down and say...

I went Jobbing...

Hello everybody. I live in the attic now.

Anyway since I was kindly given FOUR months by the government to bum away, I gratefully decided to work.

In order to work you have to LOOK for a job.

In order to LOOK for a job, you have to GET OVER your schizophrenic rejectophobia *fear of rejection*, a condition I was blessed with at birth.

This is how my brain functioned.

 mussssT get JOBBBB, or people will think I be A LOSERRRr

So I go to Jusco in the hopes of SCORING a job!

You know... before you do something or go for a function, you always sort of imagine how it will turn out, and then it never quite turns out the way you envisioned.

This is what I imagined before..

 But this is what happened.

haih. I'm not saying that the girl was racist or anything, she was just doing her job. But I'm sure there's a proper way of doing and saying things..

so I went home...dejected...sad...useless...bummed... 

And what did people say?!...

"its okay lizz. Try again"
                   - papa

"oh noo..why couldn't you?"

"Haha kene reject"
                 -arif ruzlan

"Ko terlalu hodoh kot"
                 -arifuddin awang

"Why Jusco? Go teach tuition!"

I tried again the next day, told a BUNCh of lies  untruths and got a job in LEVIS JEANS..

woot woot.
