Random Updates 220209

Okay, I finally cleared some of my assignments, but that leads to more. I've been taking a break from assignments these few days to get back on track with my subjects and work stuff.

Since the Coffee Explorer Test, I've settled everything else as equally important, so I'm rather free at the moment from work?

No deadlines to meet under Starbucks. Phew.

For Starbucks Ikano, there's been a change. Did I mention that we have a permanent (?) Store Manager for the moment? Surprisingly, he was from another district. A nice person, but I think his personality gets kind of cute during busy periods. He'd go ballistic and the bar will turn into a battlefield once he has to settle 9 pending drinks.

As for me, I was doing middle today. Sheesh. I haven't been through that shift for quite a bit, and when it got busy, hell, it really got busy. I was literally sweating in the same position on the hot beverage/cold beverage section. Sayangku was there though, which I think triggered me to sweat even more. Thank goodness she helped.


Can't blame me I guess. I haven't been working under such conditions for more than a month. I can handle busy periods, but not as well as before because I used to work like what, 6 days a week? 2 days during the busy periods, 4 other days during weekdays.

It could've been worse, but I think I need to be more attentive from now onwards.

The funniest thing at work today was when I saw one of my partners going online after her shift, she was playing Pet Society. It looks kind of cute, then again, I won't be bothered by these things because I won't have the time. So what happened was that she used her pet and visited this place called the "Cafe", and we were making jokes about how a "Cafe" is like Starbucks.

"Wah. Tengok. Ada La Marzocco bai."
"Eh, tak payah nak bayar full, beb. Tanya budak POS tu jika boleh dapat 30% diskaun, dan order untuk Caramel Macchiato."
"Dah lah bagi ko tau Cafe dalam game ni mmg Starbucks, giler. Nampak ke tak Coffee Press tu? Pasti janji jika ada Cold Storage dekat, boleh dapat RM30 off giler."
"Dei. Tengok. Harga espresso machine tu sama dengan espresso machine yg tengah buat model kat merchandise rack. Harga ni RM1399 (??), dalam game pun 1500 gold points. Giler mahal siot."

Trust me, I was that restless to kacau someone else. Then again, I was working 8 hours shift full without any breaks of any sort. Toilet breaks, yes. I only went twice I think. I was on floor for most of the time because I didn't know what to do for my break, so yeah.

I'm home now, blogging before I pull off the next assignment.

I was feeling half sleepy. But knowing myself, I'd end up waking up 1 hour after I sleep before 12am, and probably stay up till 5am playing Left 4 Dead or something. Insomnia, babe. So I'd rather wait for 1am or 2am later on, and snore the whole night away.

Ladies and gentlemen, I actually snore. I had to find out the worse way - having someone else to tell me. Hohohoho..

Remember the last time I stocked up on chocolates?

The yummers (only because I cleared the dust off my camera lens):

I have to admit that I got influenced by Sayangku regarding her addiction to chocolates. Reminded me of the times when I used to have my share, except that I finished bars of chocolates during that age due to certain boredom -_-

Then the assignments spree. Blah

And then, we have my Starbucks that I happily purchased last year, after I found out that Penang had no stock at all, but I asked my manager to book it for me. Blah. Works well to drink my favourite grape juice since it has aloe vera bits.

Which reminds me that I need to leave a permanent tumbler in the store so I can properly claim my employee beverages. I keep forgetting, thus resulting to me placing everything in a mug, and wasting straws, of course.

It's nice to calculate about how small issues can be big issues in the long run. The keyword here is: in the long run.

So yeah.


Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts.
