i just have to blog this- i called up XXX company, wanting to speak to their hr director and the receptionist went, "h'on priis.."
just in case you are still scratching your head, i think what she meant to say was "hold on, please"
ok, just add that to our very original locally-made lingo of gahmen (goverment), relecc (relax), -zher (teacher)
skew me, coz i really found that wildly amusing
did you know that today is fruit day? well i just found out too when i saw an orange accompanied by a little note, lying on my desk, given to us by the human resource department. how thoughtful.
