Assalamualaikum. Met Ismail, Kenneth and Saddiq for breakfast yesterday at A & Z Eating Place along Sembawang Road. I had Bihun Soto and my favourite Almond Milk. We did a lot of catching up with one another. Ismail is practically enjoying his off days and counting his days to ORD, Saddiq is now undergoing his vocational training and Kenneth and me, still slogging off. I ahve 74 more days before my ORD date which breaks down to 37 working days before subtracting my leaves.
Anyway in the midst of the breakfast, I overheard Dato' Siti Nurhaliza's latest single being played on the radio. So, I was quite sure that the album is already here in Singapore after its launching on the 26th December 2008 in Malaysia. I did try calling Muzika Rekods Joo Chiat on the 24th December 2008 enquiring when is Lentera Timur coming to Singapore as they are always the first in Singapore to bring in Malaysian and Indonesian albums. According to one of the salesman, he said that the earliest the album will be here one week after its launching. Ya, I take it as a fact that I need to believe and live with it, so be patient and just wait! After listening to the song Di Taman Teman on the radio yesterday's morning, I decided to call them again and ask again, guess what the same salesman whom I believe was the one talking to me 2 days ago said?
Izwan: Hi, I would like to enquire about Siti Nurhaliza's latest album. Is it already here?
Salesman: Oh, we just sold the last copy. But we are ordering more, might be coming next
What the heck men, they are not being professional. Once I reached home, I tried calling Muzika Rekods Tanjong Katong asking if they still have a copy of the album and checked with them if Muzika Rekods Joo Chiat still has it or not. Another bloody answer, "Oh it is not here yet, as for at Joo Chiat, I am not sure..." Gosh, is this how you guys do business. I am not a genius when it comes to business theory and all but at least I know its fundamentals. SO not professional with a big 'P'. These are some of the shots of Dato Siti Nurhaliza's latest album cover. From Sitizone.com
Should only if I drive, I would have drove all the way to Kuala Lumpur to get my hands on this Lentera Timur! Haiz...
