Lodging a complaint at Standard Chartered Bank

I have just called Standard Chartered Bank and lodged a complaint. After going through the voice-response system, I managed to secure a human being and I told him of all the calls. He said he would tell his manager.

Is this Kafkaesque or what? If you have not read Franz Kafka's 'The Castle', well, it's worth a read.


2:39 pm. Another call from Standard Chartered Bank. More harassment. I politely asked the caller to remove my name from their mailing list.

It is obvious that nothing that I say or request will matter to this faceless monolith. Does Standard Chartered Bank care what their customers and potential customers think?

Malfunctioning Canon inkjet printer

My Canon printer has done it again. There is a piece of paper jammed and destroyed in the Canon PIXMA iP3300 printer. Now, how is this piece of paper going to be removed? This is going to be interesting.

Tora! Tora! Tora!

The day of infamy. The treachery of the initial attacks on 6th December and 7th December should not be forgotten, more importantly, remember the massacres on the civilian populations throughout Asia and the brutal Japanese occupations of Korea, Taiwan, parts of China and Southeast Asia in the 20th century.
