Here’s a joke to add cheer to a dreary Friday.
Bigmac interviewed a candidate for our political risk and structured trade vacancy this morning. The candidate is definitely very strong academically (2nd upper honours in Actuarial Science) but unfortunately not very savvy otherwise. Here’s an excerpt of the conversation that convinced Bigmac not to hire him…
Bigmac: So you’re keen on political risk. Have you heard of Hugo Chavez?
Candidate: Yes. That’s a perfume right?
Bigmac assures me that I will not want him working with me. HAHAHAHAHA.
Blame it on my OCD nature but once I decided to touch up the photos, I couldn’t stop till I got them right (or at least as “right” as I could). So this is the 3rd time I’m reposting the photos. Realised I used too many “dark edges” effect in version 2 of this post.. so I redid all the photos. This time, I also correct the contrast, lighting, colour and saturation of the pics, and rendered some lighting effect where I thought might be nice. Of course, there was the usual cropping to remove the actual photographer’s arm/bag/flash, pillars, etc.

L: Hot… humid…
L: Am v.proud of this photo ‘cos the colour was originally kinda bluish/greyish but I managed to correct it. Yes, yes, no big deal for some but a big deal for my 3rd photoshop attempt.
L: The ah lian pose is actually quite relaxing
L: Our “kelong equivalent” location
R: Sigh. My upper arm is too fat for my lower arm. 🙁
