blogging gobbledygook and such

The First Paycheck Project

If you don’t already know, I’m no longer a student. 😦 I’ve just started my first full-time job ever as an English editor. Nothing glamourous, just something for me to buy clothes and shoes and the occasional chocolate bar. Hah. Anyway, so this means that I’m due to receive my first ever paycheck at the end of the month!

So, I want to give you a little treat with my first paycheck. That’s the tradition. isn’t it? You treat your friends or family to dinner with your first paycheck, that sort of thing. But since dinner would be quite impossible here (!), I would treat you with something that should be able to withstand the journey of air mail. If you’d like that treat (it’s a surprise!), all you need to do is leave a comment here (scroll right to the end of the page) and give me your address in the contact form (this isn’t the comment box, remember!) right below so I could snail mail it to you. That’s it!

Deadline: When my first paycheck is banked into my account or 31st August 2008, whichever comes first!

(Remember, this is the contact form. Scroll down some more to leave a comment. Thank you!)

  1. HAHAHHA I’m the first one I’m the first one I’m the first one, I love getting stuff in the mail, I love you and I’m kinda sugar rushed…. !!!!!!

    sulz: my god, what have you been taking!! okay, awesome anyway. have to make sure it doesn’t end up like your postcards, though. did you receive the one from macau?

  2. You sent me a postcard from macau? AWwww? No I didn’t get anything. It takes a month…

    Sucks! The first one came here just fine so why arent the other ones coming?

    sulz: i don’t know. 😦 the paycheck treat i will register the post so hopefully it will arrive!

  3. Oops my comment is missing, or is it awaiting moderation? Anyways, here it is again

    WOW, what an idea! I guess you can continue this tradition or a different tradition each time for your second, third or even better, every paycheck!! What say? πŸ™‚

    sulz: haha, it went to my e-mail; that was the contact form!

    hahahaha, you wish! πŸ˜†

  4. LOL, i posted my first comment (the one that was missing) in your contact form πŸ™‚

    sulz: yeap! πŸ™‚

  5. Oh what a generous soul, you are! Don’t give me any of your paycheck. But feel free to give to AmeriCares or some worthy charity you feel strongly about. Congrats on your job.

    sulz: i don’t think my little treat will be worth anything to charity because it really doesn’t cost a lot! if you change your mind just send me your address.

    thank you. πŸ™‚

  6. Wow, thats a great idea. But I know anything related to snail mail would not work for me. Nothing ever reaches her. My friends have tried to send me several times from other countries, doesn’t work. πŸ™‚ I am all for an online treat, if there’s one.

    sulz: thanks. online treats are expensive and out of my paycheck’s budget (since i only worked for 3 weeks this monthso it’s not even my proper paycheck). but if i come across one that fits my budget i would consider… suggestions, anyone? πŸ™‚

  7. It IS a great idea – but my parents would get very curious if stuff started turning up in the post for me in unfamiliar handwriting… so no thank you! πŸ˜›

    But as Poonam says…

    sulz: i’m open to suggestions if they fit my budget…

    So sweet for offering!
    I doubt I can get you to send me melon-flavoured xylitol gum from KL to SG, they’ll kill it at the customs. πŸ˜›
    Nah, I don’t want any part of your paycheck. You should take the allocated budget and eat and Fridays, take a picture and show me what I’m missing in Singapore. πŸ˜›

    sulz: haha, how do they check for gum in singapore? well, you can have all you want when you come to kl. πŸ˜‰ we go friday’s lah when you come here! gosh, we’ll really pig out because i love fridays. πŸ˜€

    I think you are very sweet and kind hearted… I am new to blogging and I am very encouraged by reading your blogs to continue…so thanks….

    sulz: thank you! i’m not always, though. πŸ˜› wow, did i? do continue blogging, there’s just so much to gain from it!

  10. For me treat is a gesture from you. πŸ™‚ I do not know what you have in mind for treat, but I certainly would not want you to spend your hard-earned money for it. My best wishes for your career! πŸ™‚

    sulz: but i want to!

  11. Wait people, now I’m feeling bad for taking sulz paycheck…

    sulz: gosh, no! i already have something for you in mind and it won’t cost a lot. πŸ™‚

  12. Can I get a hug via snail mail? If so, I’m all up for it. :mrgreen:

    sulz: haha, how does one send a real hug through mail?? or did you mean a bug? i can send you a bug, sure. πŸ˜›

  13. A rare Malaysian bug… that would be fun. You could frame it! πŸ˜›

    Suzy x

    sulz: hmm, i’m not sure what are rare malaysian bugs. i don’t think i’d dare catch any anyway. 😳

  14. Well you could hug the envelope. πŸ˜› Bug… I’d only take it if its rare and deep fried. πŸ˜›

    sulz: haha! i think you should plan an overseas trip to thailand. fried bugs of every imaginable kind there, i believe! πŸ™‚
