a meeting with the billionaire
This morning, i went to the pak arab’s office again. the meeting was supposed to be yesterday but due to his busy schedule; it is held this morning. i emailed him around 7 pm yesterday and he replied it at aroud 8pm; his office mails! which means that; at that time; he is still at the office.
this reminds me with a conversation with a business friends many months ago. he is a chinese by race and a free thinker by religion. he once said to me that he doesnt really understand these malay businessmans.. that triggers my adrenalin and i demand more explaination..
he said; u look at a chinese; those businessman; driving big sleek merc to work. the boss. you see what time they come in and what time they leave the office?? there are some cases; the boss himself unlock the door and being the last person who leave the office at nights; locked the door…. (i do that! hehehehe)
and you see the malay bosses… also drive merc; but what time do they come? what time they leave ??? Bosss maaaah
he made me speechless
well, back to the meeting; in my last mail to him; i enclosed my concept design for their machine they asked me to design. and i took the opportunity to explain to him about the designs. few things that i notice about this pak arab… he is well versed in terms of engineering and technical know how – a plus point in the sense that no one can kencing him. being the MD of a company and with strong technical know how is a very good points indeed.
he said he were impressed with my co’s profesional service, he said its fast and very informative. he however disagree with about 60% of my design. but i like the way he handles the matter… firstly he point me what are the good points of my designs; and then he shoot me where he doesnt like about it. hahaha; that was my first design in these oil and gas field… but its okay looor.
i need to revise my designs and present to him again next week, after he back from Dubai.
He notice that i drive a lion from my car remote control ( i attached my thumbdrive together with my car keys) and he explain with great pride how the arabs love the lion. he himself got a few lion models at home. (yeahhh we got same passion :) )
anyhow, the future here seems very promising. i do hope that i could and manage to be one of their vendors. though i’m still very green in this oil n gas field, i’m willing to learn and i’ll try to serve my best.
pray for me my friends…
