Work, Work & Work..

Last last Saturday, 25th Nov, Ivan, Jo-Lynn, Veron, Ade & I went to work for Creative Eateries's CJC alumni dinner.. Well, means we are server that serve them English courses..

We were supposed to meet 1pm at Esplanade but due to bad time mgnt, I was late and reached there at 1.20pm.. Phew!! There were stil taking attendance.. I wear damn auntie tt dae.. Mum's oversized white long sleeved blouse and black pants.. (in the end, they provide us with uniforms) Hahaz..

We finally reach there at 2+pm and 3 of the gers began to fold napkins.. Hahaz.. Banquet job.. After tt, helped to set up the tables and changed into our uniforms.. I changed my zone with another ger in order to be with the same game as Veron.. Hahaz..

I look kuku lahz.. But Ade sae the uniform contrast with the brick wall.. Hahaz.. Veron, Ade & I were assigned to do the cocktail reception and our hands are damn pain and tired.. Luckily both in-charge ask mi to clear away the glasses onli, which means 1/2 of the workload gone.. Hahaz..

Dinner started at 7.30pm and the MC was Tan Kheng Hua, ex CJC students.. Hahaz.. And i believe tt no one in the alumni was focusing on wat is happening on stage cos they were all busy catching up with each other.. Hahaz..

To add on, the balloons decorations were so cute.. =D Except for the blue colour which I hate.. Hahaz..

Not bad loh the restaurant.. But very bad 1st impression.. Hahaz.. When it open at 6pm, he asked mi to tend the restaurant by myself and he will be back in 20-30 mins time.. (in the end he came back 1hr+ ltr) Hahaz..

Den 3 ang mohs came and ordered 2 pizzas and 2 Hoe Gaarden & 1 grapefruit juice.. When I went in the restaurant, lucky a malay female bartender was there and she said onli left 1 Hoe Gaarden.. WTF!! So big and juz open and u onli gt 1 left?! All we left afterwards is juz the 1 for 1 Carlsberg.. Hahaz.. And we hafta made order to Al Dente kitchen to prepared to food for us.. And the 3 guests was already rushing us.. Some angry ppl..

Food served and they wanted the bill so as to catch their performances.. WTF again! He paid $100 for the $83.90 bill and the change was $16.10.. ( We didnt charge them the grapefruit juice and we charge the full pint beer as 1/2pint) When the malay ger open the cashier box, she was so shocked tt she almost shouted! Hahaz.. It was empty!! Hahaz..
So she had to rush to Al Dente again to get the change and the ang moh is reli angry I tik.. Hahaz..

I can count yest's guests seriously.. 3 ang mohs, 1 young couples, 2 old couples, 5 young performers, 3 ladies ang mohs, and lastly 2 ang moh who came at 10mins past our 10.30pm closing time.. Hahaz.. All in all.. I work till 11.30pm... Lucky the chef send mi to my place by cab.. I said send cos he didnt want mi to pay for the fare.. Maybe cos I noe Chef Ng and Chef Phua in TAS which he formally work with.. Hahaz.. He grad 2 yrs ago in Shatec btw.. Hahaz.. He's a Malaysian..
