It’s lunch time and two coworkers (both running their own exciting startups), Chris and Rizal are trying to figure out where to eat (a common Malaysian problem).
The conversation went a little something like this:
Chris: Who’s gonna Kaodim lunch today?
Rizal: You hutang iMoney bro. Of course you gonna buy today.
Chris: Oh ya hor I totally forgot about that. Oklah today’s lunch on me. Can you Recomn a place to makan?
Rizal: Now Offpeak hours, should be no jam lah. Ara Damansara there can?
A bus passes.
Rizal: Eh did you see that? Catch That Bus! I saw a damn hot girl inside.
Chris: Can I remind you that you just got married bro? I was the one who arranged a wedding band on GigFairy for you.
Rizal: Can I also remind you that I’m Malay. I can have LagiSatu bro. Maximum 4.
Chris: I know your wife’s number bro. I will relay this message to her. Sudahlah, let’s GoGet a taxi.
At the taxi stand.. (not quite sure why they didn’t use a taxi-hailing app)
Taxi Driver: Hello sirs. Please step inside MyTeksi. Where would you like to go?
Chris: Ara Damansara, uncle. The restaurant next to The Battery Shop there, uncle.
Chris: Yes, uncle.
Chris: Yes la, yes la. iPay. Just stop complaining.
On the way to the restaurant, a lorry (definitely not from TheLorry.com) cuts them off dangerously.
Chris: Please lah, Fazura wouldn’t even look at you. Your face look like a Wall bro.
Rizal: SAYS who, bro? Sekali aku petik, 10 Fazura datang tau.
At the restaurant. This restaurant not so high-end, so cannot book via TableApp.
Rizal: So how’s business so far, man? Got any traction?
Chris: Doing good numbers so far. Trying to increase my LTV. It’s abit hard to find people who MauKerja with me these days, by the way.
Rizal: Kasi them better package la. Don’t be stingy on talent, dude! Pay your people well and it will be reflected on your bottom line. That’s my opinion.
Chris: I’m paying market rate, man. Using JobStreet’s salary report as my guide.
Rizal: Good man. Oklah, let’s go, got a meeting later AfterFiv.
Chris: Waiter, Billplz!
