I went to work for the second time, at Swissotel Merchant Court (SMC) for the first time, as a banquet waitress for the first time. It was very tiring, right from the start.

I had to exchange my IC for a key, a card and a piece of paper. Then with the piece of paper collect my clothes. Then I had to change. I met two Malay girls in the toilet beside the lockers. And then I saw Angelique in the toilet! :D It was a surprise. I was so glad that I knew somebody there. Angelique was made to serve the VIP tables. She has worked since Nov.

The senior manager made me serve drinks to the guests at the reception area. The round tray, despite only with 4 to 7 drinks on it, was very heavy. I met Octovan and Xiao Lan? there. This task required stamina because we had to walk around until somebody wanted a drink and thus lightened our load. I was telling the truth when I said I almost dislocated my left arm and wrist. I think it was just me, because my bones are weaker than average. Once all the drinks on the tray were taken, we had to refill our tray. So walking around with one drink left is better than none. After that, we had to clear all the glasses and snacks and clean the glass tables.

We went back to our tables. We had to check the drinks constantly then change the less-then-half ones with full ones. It was very wasteful. I had to remember to carry a tray no matter what I carry. It was troublesome.

I heard that somebody spilt a drink on a guest and he was sent home. Then I found out that it was Octovan.

I only got dismissed at 11.30pm and changed until 11.40pm. I almost got lost trying to get out of the hotel. I quickly ran to Clarke Quay MRT because I was scared that I couldn't board the MRT train because it was too late. I was frantic when I heard last train to Harbourfront although I knew I'm taking the train towards Punggol. I reached Yishun MRT at 12.40am today, which means that I reached home at about 12.50am. I showered and drank milo then went to sleep at about 1.30am.

I don't want to go back there ever again. It's worse than NAPFA. Now my arm muscles are aching and the soles of my feet are sore, still. Now even lifting my arms up is difficult. I almost died ytd. Mummy said I was exaggerating. Anyway, at least I survived the day. Not to mention I didn't eat my dinner or drink water or go to the toilet during the 7 hours.

Whoever reads this, don't judge. Because I'm just writing this while being emo. But nobody visits my blog anyway. That's why there's no need to privatise this blog.

I discovered 2 tubs of Häagen-Dazs in the freezer today. I couldn't believe how such an expensive brand of ice cream appeared in my house. I was shocked. I felt so touched, and I actually couldn't bear to even start eating it, which never happens for regular ice cream like Walls.


And just now, Mum just came home, and I asked her when she bought it. She went, "Oh, right. I bought that for daddy because he's too skinny." I felt damn disappointed, you can't even imagine how someone would feel over merely ice cream. I asked her why she didn't buy Häagen-Dazs for me. Then she said something like: Buy for you? It's Mothers' Day, and you didn't even buy for me. I felt damn wronged I started crying. I know I cry over little things. SO WHAT. I usually just eat cheap ice cream, and I could even feel touched over seeing Häagen-Dazs in my house. I was never willing to splurge over my favourite dessert, and I always just buy cheap alternatives. I had to go…

WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAPPEN?! WHY CAN'T I CONTROL MYSELF BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE? I'm so sorry mummy. You're always so hardworking to raise me, but I never studied hard. Now my lab report is going to be late. Why do I always regret only when it's too late, but I repeat it again and again every time even though I know the consequences? I really hope this is the last time. Do not repeat your mistakes please Huai Tian. I feel so exhausted at my own behaviour and how I always give in to watching shows until I'm right before the deadline. Why am I like that? I even went to visit the counsellor. Why can't I change? I feel so bad for my mum... that she only has one daughter but I turned out like this. Please. I want to pull back my grades back up. PLEASE

Donald Trump is seeking quick ways of withdrawing from a global agreement to limit climate change, a source on his transition team said, defying widening international backing for the plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Trump, who has called global warming a hoax and has promised to quit the Paris Agreement, was considering ways to bypass a theoretical four-year procedure for leaving the accord, according to the source, who works on Trump’s transition team for international energy and climate policy.

So what's the Paris agreement?
The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the agreement aim…
