System Installation @ Monterez

Today, we're installing a new PABX to replace a small keyphone. The reason the customer is upgrading was due to the fact that their old keyphone could not keep up with their staff expansion. They already have 22 extensions, just two short of reaching full capacity, where the system could not be expanded anymore.

One of my techs are installing some cable casings.
You can see the old keyphone system on the right

All done! And the the customer called me over,
"Wei, the (system) is so big la, you said I could
cover it up with a plant?". I replied, "Can, what.
But not my fault if your plant guys took it away
just now. Maybe you could get them to give you
a small jungle instead. Ha ha ha!"

The the customer replied, "Not funny. And your "Ikea" box looked
like crap la. Which I defended, "You know Ikea is DIY stuff and the
"Ko-Tak" (or kotak, which is Malay for box) series is pure DIY. See?
Even the planks we have to cut it to the right size"

Customer was not amused and handed me a brush and some
white paint..... "Make it look nicer, OK? Or you cannot go."

Unfortunately, we have to go back on Monday because our planned Saturday follow-up did not materialise as Tenaga came and handed the customer a flyer telling them there would be no electricity on that day. sigh
