I signed my freedom away today. I feel very depressed that I am losing my freedom soon. Is this a sign that I should get out of this line? Look at it, I'm jobless, I rejected several offers before this one came along. Why is it that I'm not exicited that I'm about to start work? *confused*
I met the MD. He wants me to attend a course. Guess what course? Grooming course. It caught me by surprise really. It's by Jill Lowe. I don't like her style. Her style is the style but its probably not mine. But nevermind. I'm supposed to learn how to dress appropriately and corporately I guess? Geez, and I thought I can wear something more comfy to work since there is no official dress code. There goes my dreams of dressing in jeans :(
On my way out, I saw a couple of posters that caught my attention. Advertisements on fitness classes during lunch and after work. I got pretty excited at that prospect. It's very obvious where my interest lies...Still I dared not to be too happy, maybe I'll be so bz that being able to attend these classes will not be my entitlement cos I have a lot of work and responsibilities to fulfill. Maybe I'm supposed to be so busy that I am not supposed to have time for these. :(
I am filled with apprehension.

My NB781 off road
I tested my NB 781 last Sunday. It didn't look very good at first sight. But I decided to give it a chance by putting it on. It looked not too bad! Plus it offered very good cushioning around your ankles.
Very good stability. So NB is not lying when they say the shoe is designed for stability. Its really very stable. A lot of cushioning to give u the added stability.
But its not very good for running I realised. But very good for trekking, hiking, probably long distance walking too with its good rubber sole with proper traction.
Cushion wise, I think nothing comes close to my fav A6. I'm setting my eyes on 1 as my next pair!

Man Loitering Outside Ladies
What would you do if you saw this man keeping watch over the ladies?
I was at Cineleisure yesterday. Looking for a movie to watch at 3pm. No shows. I decided to visit the ladies before heading home.
There was a man outside the ladies. Middle-aged, dressed in a short sleeve shirt and pants with a semi-casual look. He did not look like some identified personel or security. It was very obvious he was outside the ladies and not the gents. I STARED at him. And he cooly told me to use the handicapped toilet.
I went into the handicapped toilet. Something is amiss. This is not right. I came out of the handicap toilet before even using it. Took a back peep before I left. The man was still there. I left.
Now thinking about it, what's that man doing there? In my whole life, I've only seem gals outside the gents (because the ladies was too full or the queue was too long and its either very early in the morning or very late at night.) and not the other way round.

Jackie Chan rocks. The amazing thing is I was never a very GREAT fan of his.
It was a lazy afternoon. I was at the cinema near my house, the timing was just right. So I bought myself a tix to the latest Jackie Chan show and 2 very beautiful ladies by his side.
This show is quite different from the rest, that have become somewhat stale in its very slapstick like comedies, way past its gongfu heydays. This one is really different. I liked, no, loved this one.
It was a wonderful blend between ancient Chinese, Indian and the modern HK society and a mythological dream, spoken in Canton, English, Chinese and Indian. The show weaves in an out of Jackies dream showing his previous life as a great general and his love, his modern identity as an archaeologist and his passion for the work he does who discovers the secret behind the principles of levitation, which in turn leads him to discover a floating city in a cave hidden the waterfall held afloat by this "stone" from perhaps outerspace.
The scenes in the shows are very beautiful. I loved that waterfall~!
That jump was somewhat, impossible, though.
As with all Jackie Chan shows, there were the NGs...
Watching it was so OUCH..they were fighting on this platform some x metres above the ground and he fell down! All that flying around dangling on the steel wires were really no joke man! You know, you can really control where you go when you're "flying" so there were many collisions and accidental landings.
GREAT MASTERPIECE :)
Overall: 5 thumbs up!

High Impact != High Intensity != High Impact
I am such a failure. I have 2 left feet and I cannot coordinate. I feel like such a duck in the class. Anyway, its really fascinating to learn that simple moves at a 140 bpm (that's not supposed to be very fast) can cause you to break out in such an outbreak of perspiration!
Hi-impact means, an exercise that can have both your feet off the ground. lo-impact means, one foot is on your ground at any one time. We don't do hi-impact aerobics class here anymore. The closest you can get is hi/lo.
High Intensity != High Impact;
High Impact != High Intensity!
I love how lo impact can also be hi intensity!
If lo impact can be hi intensity, why opt for hi impact with high intensity?

Yogi Bear died
Someone told me today that someone else had collapsed (the person died) while doing yoga class! OMG! Yoga has never quite been "safe" and never quite considered a "sport" or "exercise" like pilates in the fitness sense. Hence, maybe the term "wellness"? Were they born because they are like "alternative healing"?
Anyway, seems my friend seemed to have known the person, the person was classified under "special population" for having a list of health concerns with hypertension and heart problem among the list.
Yoga asanas (I learnt this term recently from the newspapers, it means yoga positions, cmiiw), we know consists of a sequence of poses. Some of which, requires you to have your head very low, the next minute, right up at the top.
I've experienced the dizzy spells myself for doing that too fast, even more when I'm feeling a lack of blood in the body (blood contains oxygen). Now, I understand that its caused by a sudden change in your blood pressure. It's the same reason why some people experience "black out" when they change positions from squatting to standing in an instant.
The person had hypertension. Hypertension and blood pressure. Blood pressure and heart problems. You would have guessed by now. The person collapsed due to that. It's really scary that something seemingly "easy" like yoga can cause one to collapse.
Take care my dear friends!

I Love My Avocado Milkshake~!
That's the one an only avocado milkshake at AV! Yum, still as slurpilicious as ever~! I went there with Bee after NB shopping at the ulu comtech place. Feels like going back to CL again. I miss those days. Friday afternoons at AV, youg tau foo + avocado milkshake!
We bought...1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of socks and 1 top each. ~$~ again. The gal was really very helpful. I'll also feel bad if I don't buy lor. *excuses* :P But hey, you don't get good service everyday you know?
Testing the shoe there, I realise how flat my shoe has become after the stepping all over it for the past year battering it to bits by running and jumping in it. It has served me well, how can I forget. My sports shoes wear out _that_ fast. Within half a year, the cushioning is no longer as fantastic. But I got no $ to buy my beloved A6. So settle for NB la. No fish prawn also good. Don't think I'll get another just do it next time anymore. The new ones all seem to be easier to spoil and sky high prices. I boycott!
Since we are there, we might as well pay good ol Queensway SC a visit. Too bad, we couldn't find a decent, economical, long sleeved, quick dry (woah, thats a long list, we're quite demanding hor?) that is well suited to the harsh, rugged environment of camping.
Ok, I've decided. My Salomon will follow me to Sungei Yong.
I just finished reading the letter of offer too. I think I'll take this one.

HEAR WHAT OPRAH HAD TO SAY ABOUT MEN
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.
Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends".
A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
Don't stay because you think "it will get better."
You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women.
He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything.
He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior.
Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are.
Even if he has more education or in a better job.
Do not make him into a quasi-god.
He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man.
If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat \n you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending.
Compromise is two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships.
There is nothing cute about baggage.
Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you
A relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals.
Look for someone complimentary, not supplementary.
Dating is fun.
Even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes.
When a man always know where you are,
And you're always readily available to him,
He takes it for granted.
Never move into his mother's house.
Never co-sign for a man.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Share this with other women and men (just so they know)
You'll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person
An hour to appreciate them
A day to love them
And an entire lifetime to forget them.

Flowers for you...

My Wish List keeps getting longer...
I am in desperate need of a new office jacket, the one I have is more than 5 years old and showing signs of aging. Not very nice when I wear it for interviews huh?
I need new sports shoes, the cushion of the existing ones are flattened. Even though I have so many pairs in still wearable condition, the soles are just all flattened. Good for walking, but no running and jumping around in them.
I need new shoes, I realised I've adopted the sports wear so much I don't seem to have a single pair of dress heels now. Can my pink ballet pumps do for interviews? And dinners? Who in the right mind invented those silly high heel shoes anyway?!
Alongside with dress shoes, I need a bag I can bring to work. Ok, maybe this is just a want. Just that, all the bags I used to carry are very casual. Sometimes I wish I can just carry haversacks to work. Why do we have to wear office wear when we're hiding behind the computer the whold day? Why do we need to dress well for the computer to see?
I need cleansers & moisturisers. It's finishing.
New spectacles. The frame is falling apart. New lenses. My disposables are almost gone.
I want a Canon S60 battery. I lost it when I was in Australia. :(
A Nike cap. I don't have a proper one that fits. And terrible when I have to go under the sun.
I eyeing that fitball certification class and FIC. You know, I heard there's discounts for female!
I want to learn salsa, belly dance, hip hop and/or modern jazz (inspired by snow.wolf.lake)
I want to learn jap cooking.
I want to learn the french language.
I want, I want, I want.....(heehee, inspired by that investment ad I see on TV)

Teddy is Shandy's best friend. He was a given to me by my cousin when I was in hospital 3 years ago. A couple of weeks ago, he became Shandy's best friend. He plays with him. Now he is also Shandy's bedside mate, seated on the floor beside the sofa.
Sometimes Shandy will throw tantrums around the house and turn everything around the house upside-down. This includes turning the wastepaper basket upside down and ransacking the thrash bag and marking his territories everywhere.
Its so quaint to see how Shandy will never throw his tantrums at Teddy. In fact, when he's not in the room, he will take his place with Teddy and quietly watch tv together with us. :)

Another Red Tape
I've been to this company for iv before. Its the second round. The contact person seems to have changed. I wonder why. But one possibility is that the person might had left? :P
Anyway, I was told to go for my iv at 9am tomorrow. The smartest thing about it is that I need to go to their head office (which is neither near my house nor their interview office) yesterday, to fill out the application form and submit my certs. Yes, I have to make 2 trips for 1 interview. I couldn't submit them all on the same day? Yes. Because the director of HR has to see the paper qualifications before seeing you.

First, I had to present to a panel of 4.
Then, I had to sell a biz idea.
Then the no. 1 man in the company wants to see me.
I met a total of 6 people from the company already.
And of all the places, it was at this KPT at Swisotel, buffet breakfast.
He was very strict. And he interogated me alot.
Asked me about my family, my past history etc.
I really mean...INTEROGATE.
Its weird how yayapapaya = more confident.
I didn't give this co a d*** cos, its a *** ma....
I don't have good impression of *** and I had so many "assignments" to do.
Almost didn't feel like going for round 1 at first, cos I didn't know how to do my homework.
Looks like I might get to see a letter.
Still, I rather not be too hopeful. I've gone for many rounds with others too.
Look what happened? They took me for a joyride and take me for a fool.

Saturday Night at the CBW
I'm pissed. The meeting time was supposed to be 530pm. I reached at close to 6pm. We started off at almost 7pm. Quite a few of us took cab there some more. Do you know cab to this place easily cost almost $20? I think this show is quite lousily and unprofessionally run frankly. All because its all 'kawan kawan'.
Let's face it. People just wanna have fun and play and eat. The turnout for this event was 3 full tables. Easily about 30 people. The activities are ok. The company was ok. The theme was ok (It's lantern festival). But I feel there are things that have to be taken seriously. If this is the future of tprc, then we also need some standards. Life is not just about playing and having fun. Ok, I know that we should also know how to have fun.
We started off at about 7pm, reached the CBW, saw the sunset, which wasn't too fantastic. But at least I've been to CBW. It brought back many memories because I spent a large time of my childhood at this Changi Beach Club. My aunt and uncle were members then and they often brought my ah ma there to play jackpot. The beach, the restaurant by the sea and the salt water swimming pool, the scenery really trigger many memories of the past. I was just a kid of about 4 or 5 years old.
As usual, u see the clicks in their clicks and me with no click. :P Time past quickly and we returned to Changi Village for the sumptous curry fish head dinner. It tasted very good. Portions ordered were just right.
As night fell, we walked to Changi Beach with our lanterns lit. We decorated the trees with our lanterns as we start to see people gather in groups either chit chatting or "cai deng mi" or playing with "sparkles".
The stay at CBW was too short, we did not even finish walking a single trail. I think I will come back again. For phototaking too... :) CBW is a quiet place, very tranquil and peaceful. I think I will be back.

ClubFiTT & Changi Cliff
It was a rainy morning, too nice to sleep in. I dragged myself out of bed. I look like Mr Bean, decked in gym gear, carrying this bright yellow umbrella in hand. (It was drizzling)
I learnt something new today. A guy was doing his squats on the rack machine. He had this back support belt on him and his friend wasn't wearing one. As he was doing his exercise, Shir pointed out to me how the belt is a lousy thing to have. The one with the belt had his abs loosened (vs the friend who didn't have a belt), which means he was using the belt to support his back and not using his abs to do the work. I never thought about this before!
Phew! Thank goodness they were still at Changi Cliff! I had forgot to call them to check before going! Senile me, I even deliberately reminded myself the night before. I abseiled twice and picked up many saga seeds through the course of the 4 hours. It was a pleasure being "participant". I think this is the mindset I'm going to adopt in future. :P
Someone asked me..ehh, I managed to find my way there ah. I was frankly a little offended, as though I was not supposed to be able to find my way there on my own. WTH. Anyway, I replied of course, I've been here before. A case of men can't listen and women can't read maps? I beg to differ. I know of many other women who can read maps. And a much lesser number of men who can listen.
I hitched a ride to Toa Payoh. They washed the equipment. I oiled the krabs. Before heading home, I saw the most beautiful rainbow over Toa Payoh. Its pretty unusual to see a rainbow in a new town.

It was a mistake to take a cab to City Hall to meet J. The cab driver smart aleck some more want to take a different route cos scared jam (and butter) ma. Ya la...end up near city hall also jam. Normally it would only cost me about $7. It cost me a whooping $12. Heart pain sia, and I alighted halfway while still stuck in the jam.
Dinner was crowded everywhere. She wanted to da bao. I thought can chop chop eat there. But she don't seem to be in a hurry. We left to go to the bus stop at 730pm. I think there were many people like us, going to the same destination. The bus came. It was too crowded to be able to board. We took the MRT to Kallang instead and walked. To my dismay, she couldn't really walk that fast. We were late, expected. It was 820pm.
Late and flustered, there was security check and we couldn't bring food in...jia latz....And the took my camera. So sickening...as though sitting there you can take good pictures like that. Siao. It didn't occur to me to ask B to come out and eat her dindin... :( It didn't occur to me she was already there! Haiya..brain not working.
Frankly, its quite dumb. "Please consume your food outside or dispose of it". It suddenly occurred to me that there are hundreds and thousands of children in Ethopia who are poor and starving. You're asking us to THROW FOOD AWAY! All because you have this dumb food counter so that I can buy your expensive-and-not-nice-to-eat food at pirate prices?! A sandwich actually costs $5. Its just a normal sandwich, mind you! I can easily make a chicken sandwich that tastes 10 times better! A TINY cup of lemon tea cost $2!
I realised row36 is the last row, the highest row you can get on the right side of the stage and the group of seats that was at the fartherest corner :( Then of the 4 seats, i had the farthest one too. Just my luck. I thought usually u will choose some better seats ma. Yah..should really buy your own tix next time.
The show was about to start, but not yet started. This 1d1ot1c woman had the guts to sorry-finger-to-lip us. It wasn't as if I was talking at the top of my lungs. There was nothing on stage for you to see anyway, what did she want to hear anyway! Pretending to be cultured? Bahh..I forgot to add that her average size boyfriend kept fidgeting in his seat and leaning over to my side of the arm rest. Quite peeved with it.
The seat allowed me to get a view of the evercool sound people with the many many channel mixer. So cool. (Of cos, I was once one) And the musicians too. There was a black curtain blocking our view of the stage. The speakers too. The backdrop and the props on the whole stage could not be seen. I was sian half.
Overall, the logistics was quite poorly managed. But Jacky is still Jacky. He is really good. Nnadia was also great and Evonne too. The performers all did very well. After watching the show of elaborate dance choreography and costumes. It really make me feel like doing a dance class, modern jazz especially. But I feel like hip hop too....

The Lost Doggie...
... is not lost anymore, I hope? She wasn't there when I return home last evening.
Word has it that an old lady who stays in my block is her owner. I sure hope the best for doggie and that she is safe and sound!

PLEASE BRING ME HOME~!
I first saw her at 1930 at the stair landing outside my house. Alone and scared. Growling slightly as I approached. But she's really a docile little thing.
2230, now 1 floor down. Still alone and misses owner badly. Very sad. My heart ached. The poor thing is obviously someone's pet. Alone and scared, hungry, nothing to eat. I reckon, the doggie is abandoned, not lost. No collar. No obvious signs of illness or skin diseases. Fairly young dog, of 2 - 3 years old (by my lousy judgement). Didn't smell too. And tail perpetually down all the time.
Would the owner not try to search if your darling doggie went missing? Would you not know that your dear doggie is missing?
We brought some food for her. She didn't want to eat at first, but was probably so hungry in the end, she ate a little. I couldn't bring a female dog home could I? Anyway, when I left to return home, she was by the stairs, looking forlorn. Would my owner come for me and bring me back? *tears roll down in my heart* She finally cheered up a little before I left to go home, after some coaxing to eat some food and attempting to play with her.
Whoever the owner is, I hope you bring her back or I certainly hope you'll be guilt-stricken all your life.
PLEASE BRING ME HOME~!

It is just an interview, and I need to present a proposal to a panel of 4 people comprising of 2VP, 1Mgr, 1HR. A proposal in response to some imaginary RFP that has zilch requirements. I need to introduce my imaginary company. Along with that, I created an imaginary timeline and costing. Baa. Oh, the client is unwilling to have huge initial investments too. So how would you go about handing it? They might as well tell me, bottomline: Ai Pi, Ai Qi, Ai Kin.
Nevermind. Then I received a call today for me to present a business idea to the director of BD tomorrow. Hey, I only SA nia.
I thought having panel interview means, only 1 interview required!

Women, Toilets & Shopping
Men and Women should be equal? We all know that it never will be. Women have to wait longer at the toilet cubicles.
The news today tells me that there will be twice as many cubicles in the ladies than the gents in future. The rationale being:
When there are not enough / dirty toilets, the women leave.
When the women leave, they bring their impulse shopping with them.
95% of sales are made by impulse shopping.
Now, this is something new and food for thought..

CPT - Symposium
The symposium ended yesterday. It was a wow-WOW-wow. I never know that it was that difficult to pass! Only about 50% of the people pass in the US. Only about 30% of the people pass in Europe! I was having dinner with this professor who was here to give the symposium. I asked him how is it that they make sure that no questions ever repeat themselves. He told me about how they go about analyzing the data they get from each exam...it was double WOW! As I was seated outside the exam room, I see the expressions of each candidate as they came out...I suddenly feel a sense of stress & relief! Cos I have been through this same overload and it was really sheer sheer torture. Some people wonder why I passed already then still wasting my time there. While some people who didn't know about it wonder why I was not in the exam. I know, I only have Shirley to thank.
I also found out many things. Its such a dark world there. So many people are not trained or qualified! And they are teaching and training and such.....its so scary. Luckily I took this course or I would never have known! Its a really wu ren zi di world leh...
Chinese hosts, as usual, always stuff the guests with food. Over the few days, the presenters had their fill of durians, steamboat, nasi lemak, rotiboy, onde onde, soon kueh, satay, ba chang, ba kua, liang teh (the weather was very hot ma), shredded chicken noodles (which he said was like angel-hair pasta) etc. He's the first of the presenters to actually get to take a ride on our MRT le...He loved the rotiboy, hated the durians and ohh the satay!
Yesterday, we brought one of the presenters to eat the famous frog porridge at Chinartown! He was one adventurous soul. I think the gong-bao porridge chef's skills has improved. The body of the frog doesn't seem so difficult to eat now! It also surprised me to see that he actually ate the raw-fish with such delight.
Chinatown walk was quite fun cos its near the lantern festival now. There are many mooncakes and chinatown market is bustling with activities and bazaars. We got him some stuff like the very traditional sorts of lanterns (the one with the cellaphane paper) for his 4 kids, pomelos...
Sometimes I think and I wonder whether we have "overfed" him. Just hope the next time he's back here, he's not scared of us!

I was involved in the fitness assessment for active day for this company. It was a fun-filled day amidst the CPT Symposium filled with much mess and excitement. Yah, there were the nice people who tried to tell me that the CPT exam was very difficult and somehow tried to advise me against "skipping lectures". I smiled and said nothing.
Fitness assessments don't come cheap you know? I think, any company thats willing to spend money on fitness assessments, must be a good company. No? Well, because all my previous companies had no such thing. Then again, I figured the money probably came from their "ah gong", they had to spend it, otherwise, they wouldn't be getting any of it anyway.
There was the 5-station fitness assessment and the 10-station fitness circuit competiton.
You have the usual stuff conducted to determine your muscular strength/endurance, cardiovascular health, BMI, hip-waist ratios and flexibility tests. The result was expected. Most of the population tested needed more exercise and had very tight muscles. At the end of the day, an aerobic exercise suitable for the state of their health was recommended for them.
The fitness competition was err....overrated. We were told there would be 32 teams. In the end there were only about 10. I suspect, the teams had no idea what was going on. It was a mess. Anyway, everyone cheated. I expected it. *bleah* Well, I don't blame the people for disappearing. What is a better "excuse" to "disappear" from work and go home "early" on a hot, sweltering Friday afternoon?
We are facing a greying population. Looking at the state of health our people are in.....In time to come, it will be a sickly population? Anyway, I guess it takes time for people to realise, that health cannot be taken for granted.
I cannot emphasize enough, look at the people around me who exercise *a lot*. They look way younger than they really are. How's that for motivation?

This is the 2nd piece of pyjamas I'm getting in 8 days. A men's cut L sized dryfit t-shirt. As long as it doesn't fit, even if its made of cashmere or silk or gold, it's just going to be...pyjamas. It's a huge disappointment, especially when you are told to specify your t-shirt size during registration. I figured, many people who did not collect the sizes they specified.
Conclusion, they ought to have guessed that, males do take S sizes, as well as the ladies. So, BRING MORE OF IT IN. It's only common sense.
That's not all. The goodie bags at the end had no water in it.
Overall, the planning was not good at all. Water ran out at the 2nd and 3rd water points. Goodie bags collected towards the end had no water and earlier people got up to 2 bottles. Things were much less professionally handled.
As a participant, it was a pain to have to stop at traffic lights, breaking your momentum.

On my way home today, I saw a kitty kat, probably about 6 months to a year old. Stuck high up between the metal gate and the closed door of the childcare centre.
Poor kitty! We tried to coaxed it down but it was too scared. It didn't dare to jump and an umbrella put near it didn't help. It was too high, out of human reach. I wonder how she actually made her way up there.
Finally, we found someone in the childcare centre to open the door and bring her down.

They compare it to the tsunami! OMG~!
The American is really more important than the 3rd world people huh? Look at it, only 30K people vs the 180K people. This is just a few states compared to islands and countries spread across the Indian Ocean.
I refuse to be convinced. Disaster to a poverty stricken place is far worse, simply for the fact they do not have the resources to help themselves!

Cham, I'm beginning to lose interest in job searches for what I studied for. It doesn't totally sound like good news to me.
Anyway, it was drizzling. I was caught in the drizzles. The location is good, only some 20 minutes by bus and I had 2 direct buses. This, to me is really quite a rarity and a luxury.
The interviewer was a young chap and caught me by surprise. Quite surprisingly good looking too! But I think that's because he's young. Then again, not every young chap is good looking. I thought he look a little like Chris Lee! Very rare to find good looking people in this profession, you know?
Interview was ok, he told me that several (SEVERAL!) other people (including that of your future team members, what a weird thing. But I do understand their rationale for doing so.) were supposed to sit in but couldn't, due to a last minute meeting. Told me that I might have to come down for 1 more interview if needed. (Meaning I had to come down for 3 instead of 2 interviews if I were to be successful)
Job was ok. The guy appeared quite nice. Location is good. That's about it.
