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.


I ate tangyuan! :D 冬至快乐!

Sung Jae and Joy Bbyu Couple

I've just finished watching the last episode of Bbyu Couple. And I am damn sad now. I think I'm crying more than Joy. I love this couple sooo so much. I feel so heartbroken for them, especially when Joy cried. Their love felt really real. But it's so sad because once their virtual marriage ends, they can't meet as much anymore. They're idols, and they can't hang out together in public, even if they wanted to. And that's why I feel so bad. I truly believe they really felt love for each other. Just look at how Joy broke down and cried in his arms when he was singing 안아줘 (Hug Me). They were just starting to really feel comfortable with each other, open up more, and understand each other more. And it all suddenly ends. Wtf production crew?!  What's wrong with y'all? This couple is the bomb, man. I think they contributed to lots of viewership.

I started watching this couple because I was over at Shermaine's house to study, and she cooked soba noodles…

One of the Things I Hate The Most

Today morning, Mummy flew to Penang to for my Ah Ma's wake, so my Er Gu Zhang is staying at my house while she's away, to ensure Daddy won't starve or fall down. Bcos I go to school until quite late.

Oh yeah, lemme digress a bit first. I had my LSM3211 CA1 today, and although I didn't finish studying, I felt that it was so much better than last sem. What's different is that I tried harder to study this time, and yesterday night, I managed to stop myself from watching the latest episodes of 2D1N and 稍息立正我爱你! I know the proper thing to do is to finish studying, but I really did improve from last sem. For that, I need to praise myself, encourage myself, pat myself, because I learned that scolding myself is just going to discourage me. I have been a bad student since secondary school, and I think I've improved the most in this period of time. I am a perfectionist. I am not praising myself, because that's not a good thing. My brain used to turn off every time th…

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…
