heart on wings

Okay. I'm gonna update a long post with details of many happenings this week. First off, I can't believe that I'm actually gonna start work real soon! Thought that I would be able to take up dancing courses and baking lessons and electone organ lessons instead. It all started with Amelin asking me to tag along with her and Puay Suan to find jobs at The Mall. On Monday, we asked almost every shop whether we can work, and some shops turned us down due to them requesting long-term contracts and some shops asked us to fill in forms but in the end didn't call us. Then I casually smsed Xiao Ling to find out about her waitressing job at Pan Pacific then she said the hotel needs labour and all. So on Thursday, Puay Suan, Amelin, Alwina and I went to fill in the form and just yesterday, they asked us to go for training already. Lol.

A rather long story eh? Oh well, the training yesterday lasted for 10 hours and oh man, my shoulders and feet ached. First off, there was this slide show briefing and I was so hungry; my gastric was about to act, thought that they would provide lunch for us..luckily Amelin brought some bread. Then all of us, about 30 of us, tried out carrying a tray of four glasses of water (man it was so heavy that my tray was wobbling while trying to serve) Lol, luckily for the real thing, don't need to serve while carrying tray... We also learnt how to carry things with a fork and spoon (that would be to portion the food) In the evening, we wore the full uniform with tidy hair (bunned hair for me), light makeup, court shoes and stockings...and we attended some D&D. Didn't know that standing for a few hours could be so tiring and my buddy introduced himself by saying in chinese, "Pour tea, pour tea!" Lol, I don't even know his name...just the guy with a mole on the forehead. He's pretty cool, lol..there's some nice-looking waiters working there, so some eye candy, especially for Amelin. =) So at night, we tried serving drinks and tea...Amelin's buddy laughed at me for holding the tray too high and one female buddy called me "Mei Mei". Lol. Yeah, and I got scolded for not knowing where to get iced water (it's actually tap water with ice cubes...-_-)

By the way, saw quite a number of Dunmanites working there, it's a small world after all. Lol. Hope that the few days of working at night this coming week will turn out well. And I'm still not used to having dinner so early, plus I actually lost 2kg due to the training yesterday, didn't have proper lunch...Lol.

Tuesday, Wednesday were spent at home playing The Sims 2, reading Harry Potter while cycling and daydreaming and listening to music...haven't got the chance to swim yet due to the weather and I think I'm avoiding the gym lol...

Thursday was spent hanging out with Amelin, Fiona, Daphne, Puay Suan, Alwina, Ke Hua and Edwin at night! It was the first time for me to go out with friends at night so it was rather cool. =) We went to VivoCity whereby we can see the night scenery with the Xmas tree and sea and all the artefacts...and then we went to Clarke Quay (seriously the first time visiting for me) to see the sea with boats and all. We were behaving like tourists, how amusing. =) And we went to The Mall to chill out at Mcdonalds and we actually had supper (ice-cream, that is) Actually we took some photos with the night scene but the photos taken by the guys were blurry...-_-.

On Friday, Amelin and I attended the Trybe, or rather, Thumbs Up Xmas Party. It was quite fun, when there was the game whereby all the gifts brought must be placed on the floor and they number the people over there and everyone has to pick up a gift, open it, and others can have a chance to grab your gift (oh man I opened a gift containing Belgium chocolate! and it was grabbed by many people) and one of the manager there kept on wanting to steal from me. Lol. Had bonding time with the people there. =)

My mom's like complaining having to work at night and she's like asking me to quit now so I can break the record of quitting on the training day. Lol. But I guess I wanna continue...weird huh? Me, a rather spoilt brat, working as a waitress...=/ !! Haha.

12:40 PM;

be with myself


cappucino on a rainy day,
snuggles in the warmth of blankets,
hot food in the arms of hunger,
huge umbrella of a stranger,
embraces in the rain,
smiles amidst frowns,
triumphs and singing of the heart

in center


Raindrops like candlewax
Drowning in a
Solid sculpture, you Burning and cold.


Baking skills
Yoga/Electone lessons


*HUGS* TOTAL! *HUGGIES* snuggles & cuddles
