It was a bed of brightly coloured plush and poofy beanbags that covered the dull brown wooden flooring in the training room of The Edge Malaysia. The temptation to sink into a beanbag, sigh and close your eyes for just a few minutes was very strong. Just imagine disappearing from your work station for the day, citing a headache or tired eyes as your reason to “lie down” on the job today.
DOOF Malaysia will be here for three days, starting from today, Wednesday, August 12, 2015 to Friday, August 14, 2015.
Wait, I hear whispers through the Internet lines. What is DOOF, you say? Well, this is what they are all about and what they have to offer us.
“At DOOF, life is sweet. The sun is always a little brighter, the economy is great, nothing needs stimulating, politicians are friends and gas prices, well, we don’t use gas here, we only let it out (LOL!). There’s no real words to describe the feeling of DOOF. You just have to experience it yourself. When you sit on it, it’s as if time has stood still, everything is peaceful, you feel warm and fuzzy, problems are solved, and you almost feel at one with divinity (I’ll take their word for it!). Trust us, we’ve seen grown men cry on a DOOF (Okay, they must have been really stressed!).”

While I have to agree with their statement of “feeling warm and fuzzy” as if my “problems are solved” and being at “one with divinity“, I’m not so sure that I’m ready to own a DOOF. You see, the price tag for one will make my bank accounts scream “Bloody murder!” and it’s not even suffice to say that the price is going to go through the roof. That’s an understatement, really. It’ll go through my roof, and I won’t have the money to fix the roof.
Now excuse me while I take advantage of their presence at my office and grab some shut eye.
