New Year’s Eve

Hey Guys,
Happy New Year! Made any resolutions lately. ANway lets just talk bout mah day. Oh yeah WELCOME TO 2005. It’s a new year, a new beginning. There will be changes yet things may just some how be the same. This is a new year for all. To improve, to procrastinate, to make excuses, to make resolutions and to learn from the mistakes and make amends. Make new mottos, make new lies, make new friends, make new toys?
Anyway, just a recap on my day. First the day started with me wakin up at 10 ate breakfast like any typical morning. Read the papers and prepared myself for work. at about 11.45 rushed into mum’s car. And suddenly……….. Mum couldn’t start the car. Tried several times to no avail. Tried callin the cab and still no cab available to fetch me. Then had to ask my neighbour for a lift. And besides they were goin to 1u anyway.
I rushed to the restaurant at 12.10. pheew thank god I made it bfore 12.30. Anyway clocked in and started working. Things were A ok. Taught Khaliq (my partner in crime during the afternoon) how to key in the food and stuff. got like 4 bucks tip. after splitting some with khaliq. ABout 2.30. procrastinated with Yi Lin whether we should take 2 hours break or 1 hour break. One minute it was 2 hours. I told the senior. Then we change our minds to 1 hour. Then I told the guy again. Then the misguided Yi Lin said she wants 2 hours. *wat a confused lady*. SO we ate ate A & W.Then discussed bout who we don’t like and totally agreed that Yi Yuen is very funny.
Anyhow we haeaded back to the shop after only an hour and Mr. Sua (our GM) asked us to get fishermen’s friend for him. Specifically the one with blue background and white stripes. Went to watsons and checked no that kind of fishermen’s friend. weonly saw one with green background and thought that he was colour blind. (whoops) went back and asked him which one he wanted . got told wat to buy then I said I shall buy 2 for U. (he only wants one) He said “ok lar anything lar”. Then so I bought him 2 packets and he said ” wah U really bought 2 packets ar?” Then I said for a rainy day. Then he said “so U don’t want me to recover lar is it?
I think I better cut this short. Anyway after breaking had a shift meeting. Then the shift started checked the bus stand set the table and at around 7 the gust started to come in. First customer was a transfer table. Not bad I think I served them well. Oh and yes bfore that. Some b***h came in with her family and was totally pissed off with one of the server’s and demanded to see the manager. what an A**. Poor joe. ANyway then came a couple which was ok. Then one lady came in and sat at a table for 11. That was when the horror started. I called the manager twice. Kneel down takin to her for at least 15 mins. and kept standing up to ask the manager questions. I was paying so much attention to that lady until the other guests couldn’t get my attention. SO cam.
Then she even handed me candles to poke on top of the dessert bcz it’s her friends birthday. And they get a free creme brulee which I was reluctant to give. Man it was just A tough day. Then came back at 11 and drank my mandatory new year special, The “Sparkling Juice”.Man couldn’t believe it still sparkled considering I put it in at the start of the year. Any way Happy New year all. don’t break yer new year resolution so quickly.

2nd day Off!

Seriously boring title. SO far my legs still pain and no I haven’t earned enough tips to belanja u’ll yet. The ten bucks was an exception. so far I only colllected 2.50 since I last blogged. Some christmas present. Well apart from that I would like to tell U guys something. at the place I work the official server gets the tips ok. So o christmas day there was this couple which I served but wasn’t the server. Well basically I just took thier orders and joked with them that’s all. As they left they called me and said the tips is for me. But instead I told them it’s the real server’s . Then I forgot wat happened but they went off anyway. And guess wat I didn’t take the money but instead gave it to some guy called danny. I wouldn’t want to disclose how much the tips was lets just say it’s more then the tips I got in this week. ANd earlier in the day I gave a 1 dollar tip to my busser (some one who helps me) for helping me. Can someone seriously tell me whether it was a dumb thing to do or was it the christmas songs they play at work that has gotten into me. Anyway besides that I think some girl took my tips on boxing day. Maybe it’s just my suspicious but maybe U can judge it for me. Well at work we each server has a certain station. And on this particular day I was stationed nxt to the suspected “thief”. through out the day she didn’t help me in my station at alll. Except this once . She helped me cleared the table right after the guest left. I was busy with something else. My back was facing her. And as I turned to see wat she was doin I saw her stuffing somethin into her apron. And later she brought the cheque book to me and opened it to show me 40cents and laughed at me. And the thing I remembered was that I returned the person lots of 1 dollars. The thing that really pissed me off is not the money but instead I had to serve the guest, clear the table ,set the table ,serve the darn bread take their orders and provide their every need and this girl comes in and “may” have helped herself with my hard earned probably 1 dollar tip. I am seriously pissed I don’t feel like talkin to her anymore. Everytime I see her I’ll think of that darn incident. Seriously if U wanna take my tips I’ll give it to U if U just ASK me. U can even have my pay but not do it behind my back man. That totally sucked. Next time I shall be wary. Oh yes the girl I was talkin bout just had her card and I even had the heart to teach her how to use it. TALK about nice! To make things even worst she only came for 4 days and then she got her card. And she doesn’t even know how to use it. On the other hand Yi LIn and two other fellow trainees who came in together with me who know how to do everything did not get theirs. Talk about unfair. ANyway help me judge this people. I am such I push over. Anyway enough blabbering for now. Gotta ciao. By the way MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

1 week probation off?

it’s been one week and two days I have been workin. And I think my probation’s up considering I already got my card. Sorry for celebrating Yi Lin. ANyway got 10 bucks on tips today. One seriously generous guest left me 7 bucks *oh My gosh*. Thanx Mr. Guest and Cute Little Daughter. Too bad can’t get a photo of them. Anyway 10 bucks for the first day being an official server is pretty good says one of the older seniors and it was during the day time anyway. so wat happened today. My leg hurts like hell. I came back at 11 the day before and woke up at 8 to get ready for work. So I was a little high in the morning. and then er….. got a little kelam kabut here and there. Got short of change for don’t know how many times. And asked for couple of cents till people got frustrated. Then learned how to pay back companies money then went home and drank my mum’s “leng tong” then sit here continue with my sims 2 and here I am. Well ciao for now.

Day Off!

It’s my day off and wat did I do?
didn’t get any rest at all.
first woke up toke my breakfast and read the papers.
then got shocked when the drivin instructor arrived at the front door.
Spent an hour an a half drivin the slope.
then another half hour drivin on the road.
And yeah I went backwards when I stopped at the slope.
SAD!
then came back and went out for lunch with my rascal cousins.
(and nxt to me here the mum is teaching one of the rascals, freaky)
anyway after that went to HELP for private stuff.
then when I came back it was 4 took some tea played the comp for a while and then let them rascal cousins play. Watch TV took dinner then went out again to get more comfortable shoes.
My feet hurt like hell this whole week. Found 4 blisters on my left feet and one on my right.
(disgusting)nxt came home and online.
Wat a boring day off.
I didn’t really rest anyway. well work is kinda painful because my feet hurt like hell.
And them managers are just well strict. ANd on my third day I made 7 mistakes but got 2 bucks tips from my mentor. 4th day nothin special. Yesterday didn’t serve but still got 3 bucks of tips. Lets’ just say Yi lin was luckier that she got to serve and got 7 bucks tips. *sob* anyway hope I do well tomorrow ciao for now.
Oh yeah me and family members get 50% off when we eat there. So sorry guys can’t belanja U there too expensive.

First Day!

It’s my first day of work and man I’m tired besides I think I’m hit with the flu.
woke up at 8 and had no time to eat breakfast. Went to Yi Lin’s and had breakfast with her family. Her mum sent us there. How nice of her. Anyway. our first task was to clean the cutlery. man they had lots of cutlery. After that toured the place ourselves. Memorised the seatin as well. in the entrance it’s marketo”V”? then Museo then godfather then grande then sugio I think. ANyway after that met Faiz the shift leader. basically taught us how to cut the bread. then a little briefing then off to lunch. Lunch was utterly disgusting. well the bread I bought was disgusting. After goin back to the place I was in charge of the bread area whilst Yi Lin and two other guy trainees weighed the linguine. The bread area was fun at first because I was well……. cuttin bread. After I stopped it got boring. I cleared the area 101 times. well there was the occasional 2 pax 3 pax 6 pax. SO it was ok. But when I opened the bread warmer, my specs caught all the steam so it was kinda hard to see wat I was takin. I did that for like an hour then it was our orientation. Basically boring stuff. Then there was role playin, Faiz the shift leader was the guest and us trainess well the servers. I think I didn’t fair very well but still there’s room for improvement. after that we got to eat the foccacia bread and tuscan as well. Not bad for an “on the house”. After that had some shift meeting where they basically sing songs. WIERD songs. then the shift ended. Time to go home. And yeah they gave us home work as well. How idiotic. ANyway Just did my homework and here I am so ciao for now. And yeah If U still don’t know I’m workin at Itallianni’s.

What a difference a day makes!

Well lets see what I did today! Firstly it was a pretty tiring day! Woke up at 7 cause Me, my mum, my mum’s friend and her daughter are goin to A’ Famosa. Well by the time a took my breakfast it was only 7.15 and the transportation only came at 8.30. Sheesh. Anyway what’s there to complain when someone else is driving U there!Well it was pretty much a 2 hour journey to A’Famosa.

Before Afternoon

First we bought tickets which caused a bomb RM43 for an adult. ( I’m considered a adult but still can’t get into cinemas to watch 18 shows). So dumb. Anyway when we went in we took pictures with parrots. Then we went straight to the multi animal show. Before that we crossed a couple of animals. We saw a 2 month old cub caged together with a dog. (totally odd) I saw a pelican and a pretty big Tapir.

At the Multi animal show

It was pretty fun. seeing the animals amazing performance. The orang Utans were great. The wieght lifting contest was plain cute. 2 orang utans came out to perform. One was dressed in batman and the other was spiderman. The spiderman one came rolling out. Apparently they both are world champions. Batman is also a champion who doesn’t know how to wear his pants properly. So in the end batman won and it was the end of the show.

Next Up the bird show.

Bird Show

the bird show wasn’t at all impressive. The eagle and hornbill though were pretty cool. Yeah and the parrots could sing as well. Not bad for a bunch of birds.

After the bird show we had lunch at headed for Monkey Island. ( Guybrush Threepwood was no where to be found on the island, of course he already escaped Monkey Island in the 4th installment I think?) Anyway, we took a supposedly ferry. (actually it’s just a covered mobile platform) And man the island was small. The monkeys there though were really beautiful. Plus we went at feeding time. so we basically saw all the monkeys they had there.

After that we went to the wild west show? It was fun. The start was explosive. (and I don’t mean literally) There was real smoke from the guns . Although the audion wasn’t so good still it was enjoyable. Quite funny. Pretty surreal too. When the bank exploded, there was real FIRE!! Plus when the villian died there was actually blood! Surprising? Anyway, after that we headed directly to the animal safari.

Animal Safari

We were loaded on to caged shuttles. There wasn’t enough places so we had to seat at the last row. they latched us and we were ready to go. The ride was BUMPY, I mean REALLY BUMPY!!!!! Plus we were sittin at the last row so the impact was much bigger. As we were riding along. The door to the last row where we were sitting just flung open. ANd I was the closest to the door. I was just plain stunned! Thank goodness the guy sittin in fornt quickly latch the door again. I was pretty scared that I tied the rope connected to the latch to something safe so it won’t fling open again! SCARY!!! The driver who was busy guiding us said something really calmly and monotonaus as well. this is what he said :”Oh, you men da kai le. Che bian da kai bu yong jing, zai you shi zhi de di fang da kai jiu yau ziao xing la.” That further freaked me out. which inturn caused me to tie the rope. (Come on the lion may come and attack U) The animals were pretty cool. The lion and tigers were placed and heavy gurded containments. Freaky. sad for them though. after seeing the animals there was more bumpy rides and this time the guide said we should sit tight. But it was so darn bumpy until we had to stand instead of seat to avoid our butts from getting anymore worse treatment!

After the safari we headed out to catch a shuttle to cowboy town. We visited the souvenier shop before that and there was a snake there with a guide of course. I kinda touch it. it was well kinda hard to described. U should touch it urself nxt time. When we came out. My mums friend and her daughter took a picture with an extremely cute elephant. It even wore make up. They even feeded it. They wanted to pay for something, the guide said U can give it to the elephant, so they did. The elephant took the money and ran of to the nearest shop. And it even brought back change. talk bout smart. After that the naughty elephant sprayed water at the crowd. NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY!!

We waited for like half an hour for the shuttle bus. When it came there was this bunch of kids waiting to go up. So we asked whether we could follow them. thenas we were goin up, a group about 8 rushed in so it kinda pissed of the kids’s guide. He was saying if this was singapore they would be told to gon down now. then since the group of 8 refused to get down, the kiddos were told to get down the shuttle the guy was saying like let this immoral don’t know how to line up people sit the bus first. And he added U all have no sivic sense. (if that’s how U spell it). then he went to complain at the information counter. Man that was pretty humilating for us malaysians if the guy really was from singapore. Then to make things worst as the driver asked us where we were heading, a group of malays said they were just sitting for fun. (Not like I’m against them or anything) I mean come on U bunch are sitting for fun and there’s a group of kiddos plus a pretty cheesed off man that really needs the ride. Thank god the man didn’t hear anything bout it.

Cowboy Town

we just went in for the sand exhibition. It was 25 bucks per person. The sculptors were pretty awesome but they were somehow cemented. So we felt pretty conned, but still it was nice. I felt the eiffel tower was kinda bad, it didn’t even look like the eiffel tower. Plus one of the piramids on display had grass growing on it. Totally odd.

Anyway that’s all for now I have been crappin alot. I don’t wanna go on some more. I want to play my game. Plus this is already my longest entry to date. Ciao now.
