it's just a co-incidence (this is wat i'm telling myself)

went for a citibank interview last friday, position applied for: Treasury operations, contract based, 3-6mths convertable to perm depending on performance. this job lobang was arranged by Kelly services, a job placement agency.

The interview went on smoothly(in my own opinion) with the line manager even asking me when i can start, so naturally i had high hopes of landing the job after the job interview ended. The line manager did mention that she would contact kelly again.

so i went home n waited for "good" news, okay, as the days passed by, i felt strange that there was no news either from citibank or kelly, so i decided to send an email to ask for more info regarding the job application to kelly, but there was strange-ly no reply.

so i decided to call kelly to find out more, then the receptionist told me that the agent in charge of my case went on urgent leave for a week. (such a co-incidence, rite?) then now i realise why there was no reply from the kelly 's side. Later i was referred to another agent who told me that she would look into it.

the final word i received from kelly was that there was also no reply from the line manager at citibank, so the only thing i can do now, is still to wait. =(

The latest food fad

Okay, this is actually my 3rd time buying donuts. This time it took less than 30 mins as i visited the Suntec outlet instead of the Raffles place one. The moment i joined the queue, the person in front of me left the queue (haha, yes! shorten the queue!) then before i knew it a whole bunch of ppl at least 8 joined the queue behind me, (heng ah, i came early)

Finally tried the hazelnut milk chocolate, which my fren waited for an additional 10 mins the other time when i queued with the 1st time at the Raffles place outlet. The queue at the Raffles place outlet looks scarier when they chop up the queue.

And i must say that the double chocolate is very very sinful but so so nice... haha, esp when u re-heat the donuts.

side-note: i prefer the cheese donuts from Dippin Donuts at Vivocity, cause their cheese donuts got the cheese flakes ontop as compared to Donut factory's "thin" layer of cheese on top, and if i remember correctly the donuts at Dippin are slightly cheaper than Donut Factory.
