TeamBuilding Day

Dear bloggers,

Been an extremely wonderful, fun and exciting day even though my whole body is aching now. Today was Team Building (TB) day for the buddies. Reached oscars for breakfast about 6:30am, luckily i arrived early or else i sure kena the rain. This year's TB was held at JB's Sofitel (which was held here before in year 2002). Brought back a lot of memories. Shall not elaborate much on the activities cos for those who havent attend it, i dont want to be the fun spoiler. All i can say is, enjoy it as much as you could. So here are some of the pictures during today's TB.

This is my team called the "Burung Pipit"
Jamadi/FO, Sathiya/Stdw, Edz/Oscars, Fenny/Oscars,
Cindy/Hskp, Uncle Goh/Eng, Daniel/GP

Team "Burung Kakak", our main enemy cos as what others had put it, its the battle of the burungs ... hahaha

Team "Ralph"

Team "Phoenix"

These are the 4 teams that will be competing each other. In the end, team Ralph won the battle. It was a good fight though.

SICK !!!!

Havent been blogging for a few days, was sick T.T ... poor me. Anyway, let me just break down to the days that I havent been blogging. Not quite exciting though.

Monday 240907 - Morning shift, celebrated Shirlene's birthday @ 5th floor, 4:30pm was called to TMS briefing (wrong info given, it was supposed to be for EXCOM and HODA only), but still they few managers of F&B was there, hahaha, at least can lend a helping hand to them. About 7pm, am in my angry mode again!!! This silly (or should i say idiot colleague of mine) made a big mess with the bills (shall not elaborate on that coz its a super looooooooooong story). Initially, decided to help up the dinner period, but after the incident, told myself to just go off and have a nice dinner (so to call a pampered meal). Went to WineGarage with Iz, my goodness, see beh expensive lar!!! But, i tell you, its worth it lor!!! We had a Caesar Salad ($16) to share as an appetiser, and for the main, Iz had the burger ($21) and i go for the prawn pasta with zucchini cream sauce ($30). I was told that i cant change the pasta type as their menu is something like take-it-or-leave-it, and i was told that the pasta they used is cannelloni, so its fine with me. But it turned out to be some kind of pasta that is similar to the shape of a cinnamon stick (pasta al ceppo, i think its the name if am not mistaken), furthermore, unexpectedly, the sauce is green zuccini cream, and i tell you, the whole plate looks like stir-fried long bean with prawns. Despite the unappetizing presentation on the food, it turns out REAL GOOD!!!! I cant stop eating, and now thinking bout it makes me drool again. I WILL BE BACK FOR MORE. Oh, forgot to mention, they dont serve bread but they served Lavosh with sesame and some kind of special dip, my goodness, ITS HEAVEN!!! We had lavosh in oscars, but if we were to have that kind of dip to go with it, i will be sure the first one to indulge in it. I should go and look for the recipe and i know i could cos 2 of my friends is working part-time there ... HAHAHAH
p/s: Thanks to Ah Fun for treating me the ju zai and enlightening me who is the fortune teller @ 5th floor as well as the one who grabbed the business from Warner Blooders.

Lavosh with their special dip ... Yummy

Caesar Salad @ $16.oo

Pasta with Prawn in Zucchini Cream Sauce @ $30.00

Burger @ $21.00

Tuesday 250907 - Supposingly evening shift, but when i woke up, whole body was aching, my head was like splitting into 2, and felt so warm inside my body, i think i got FEVER. Called back to workplace and told them i will be taking MC. Dont even have the slightest energy to go and buy food even though am extremely hungry. Luckily got Em who go and buy CharSiew and Duck rice for me. Ate up quickly, took some panadol and head back to sleep. Slept for the whole day, woke up again about 7pm, cooked maggie and luckily still got 1 tub of CP Shrimp Wanton in the fridge, whacked that one up as well, still feeling not full yet, chucked in a Conrad double yolk lotus paste mooncake (says who sick people got no appetite :op). Watched 'The 40 year-old Virgin' on DVD while having my dinner. After that head back to dreamland again.

Wednesday 260907 - Day off, woke up 6am in the morning (i guessed too much sleep already), fever subsided, took a shower and went to buy ciggie and o/j at 7-11. Head home and play "Chocolatier" (another addictive new game i found) until about 10am before heading to koonzzz again. Damn ... felt like a pig cos just sleep and eat. Anyway, woke up at about 2, get washed up and bought lunch (guess what, its the Duck rice again lor) and continued playing chocolatier until about just now (in which i win already and became the Master Chocolatier). Guess i need to search for more new and exciting game liaoz. Chiaoz.

Went to Ikea alone today, alone means no one accompany me lor .... sigh ... T.T

Need to buy something for the outlet, as well as to browse some of the things that i would like to buy after pindah rumah ... thinking about it freaks me out! First need to pay a lump sum of money and have to bear in mind that my much awaited vacation is just round the corner. I NEED $$$$$. Anyway, stupidly walk around Ikea and found this table lamp, quite cute and cost only $5.90. Without hesitation, the item went straight into my shopping bag. Yea ... finally dont need to type in the dark liaozzz. Also bought a pair of shoe tree and a piece of chair cushion. Spent almost 3 hours there, see beh tired and sianzzz, wanted to have their ever popular swedish meatballs, but decided to head home instead to play my new PC game, Wedding Dash. This game was soooooo addictive, my gawd, i tell you ... once you start ... you just dont feel like stopping. Like a classic malay saying, "Belum try belum tau, suday try pasti mau"!!! HAHAHA

Ok, enuff of bulls**t, need to play game liaoz ... BUB BAIZZZ

Ridiculous !!!

Nothing much exciting happened today except going supper with Ida, So Chai and Hidayat. Had a very very very long talk and time passed super fast. Chit chat until about 5am and they dropped by at my humble house. Talk c**k abit while waiting for their first bus.

Purpose of blogging today is mainly about some brainless people at work place. This stwd people came to our pantry and do floor scrubbing. Great initiative but super wrong timing!!! Whole pantry was wet and guess what, its only about 11:30pm. I still need to run shift, and quite busy as well, staff was walking in and out the pantry and it is bery bery DANGEROUS lor!!! Talk to the supervisor, and they refused to stop doing it. Reason given was they don't have sufficient time to finish the whole area if they don't start early (bulls**t, they wanna find time to sleep), and told me they are using some kind of chemical and not soap so it wont be slippery. Was so fed up and quarrel with him. Of course, i will get the higher authority involved. Called RL to talk to them, stop for a while and resumed shortly. Again talk to them, they ensure me that it is not slippery. Lost my patience, asked them that is it considered slippery when any of my staff carrying all the plates slipped and fell and cut them themselves, then only considered slippery? Can't answer me properly, but just kept on scrubbing. My goodness ... I told myself that there is no point arguing with these uncivilised barbarian, will give them a good one during morning briefing.

"The Day"

Today was another day which i called it "The Day"!!! First up, when i opened my eye, it was like so bright outside the window (bear in mind that i was in morning shift) and it was already 7am! Jesus Christ!!! I was late!!! Slept passed the alarm. In a split second, i tried to reached out for my mobile and it was not there. Had to run to the hall to make the call to workplace to let my colleagues know that i will be late. Quickly got washed up and run down to try to catch hold of a cab. It was raining and when you want a cab sooooo badly, all of them seems to be dissapeared! Was trying so hard to get a cab and the next best thing is .... i saw the bus coming. Ran to the bus stop and hop into the bus instead. Sigh ......... When i reached the workplace, everyone was giving me 'the look' and start asking where i was chiong-ing last night, in my mind was like thinking, WTF, i had never go chiong-ing for like 1 zillion years lioaz.

During the afternoon, in the middle of operation, this PA of our head office's came for lunch. Everyone was like so gun jiong (of course including myself lah). Had to make sure everything was in order. This is when s**t happens (as what my boss put it 'too much cook spoiled the broth'). Knocked over a champagne flute and cut my fingers. A total of 3 minor and 1 deep cut on 2 fingers. Bleed like running tap sia. It didnt stop bleeding even after 1/2 hour and the wound was like throbbing so badly. Made a security report even though my inner self told me not to. Worried that the wound might get infected. Was determined to seek medical advise after work cos scared that there might be bits of broken glass in the wound, but too bad, the seduction of having dinner with all the colleagues at BK overpowered the idea of going to the doctor. Was introduced to this Korean girl (quite pretty and was full of s**t) by the name of Sandra (forgot her Korean name cos its quite chim).

After dinner, went for 'No Reservation' with some of them. Not a bad movie though.

Here is something for us to ponder on : Today i personally experienced a scenario which makes me feel the power of inner self esteem, fear and courage. I have this colleague that was once in war countries and had deal with countless blood scenes. Been in the military as well and was well trained to deal with difficult situations. To me is that, if you can survive that kind of situation, you should be considered a person that is with high self esteem and is a confident person. But when he was approached by his higher authority in his current workplace, his confidence shrink from a watermelon to a watermelon seed. He will feel shakey and blurp out funny things. Even if he knows the answer to the questions, he is too afraid to answer and will definitely said things that he will regret. So, if someone that is with no confidence at all will live in FEAR? (no names shall be mentioned)

To Mr. Pattaya : Found this song by chance and it made me almost fell off the chair. Doesn't quite like it though.

Another funny Day Off

Finally my day off. Woke up about 11 plus and was late for a meet up with Pei See. We were supposed to meet up at 12 at Plaza Singapura to have lunch and buy things from Daiso. Quite funny hor ... meeting PS at PS. Met at 1230 and had lunch at Ichiban Sushi. The sushi there is still as good and affordable. Sakae sushi will no longer be my priority for japanese food.

After lunch, went to Daiso to search for some utensils for the restaurant. Bought all the buffet tong underliner that they have. Heavy sia!!!! Then head down to Oscars to put the heavy stuffs away.

Went to Raffles Hospital later to have my chest x-ray done for my employment pass. Supposed to meet the indonesian trainee after that, but they fly my aeroplane. Sianzzzzzz .... Happen to bumped into the Oscars chef, so had 'teh bing' session with them. Left about 6pm and meet up with Carol for dinner @ Fei Chui La Mian Xiao Long Bau restaurant @ Great World City. Was quite sceptical about the whole idea, but it turns out to be a great experience. The food and service was great. Affordable as well. Here are some of the food we had. Its a must try for food lovers.

My first dish, shallot oil with freshly made la mian ... simple but super delicious!

Fried Dumpling with ginger and vinegar dip, not my favourite though.

This dish is soooo unique, Salted Egg Yolk coated Nian Gao, OMG ... i would have never thought this combination would work, but it turns out to be so nice. Its not so saltish but it is saltish enough to make me eat piece after piece.

This is the Shark Bone Soup with Wanton and Chicken, soup is so flavourful, 5 pieces of wanton which is generously filled with meat and include a whole chicken drumstick, all this for the price of only $15.80. Great for 3 person to share. Will defintely have this again in my next visit.

With that, basically sums up my whole day of good food and wonderful day even though had been fang fei ji-ed. Hahahah

Where am I going?

Been a dreadfully loooooooooong week .... cant wait till day off and finally here it comes. Thank God !!!

Nothing exciting or fantastic happened so far which saddened me. How i wish something special will happen. Was so touched when i woke up this morning, lunch was prepared on the table by Em and Iz, so quickly get washed up and makan.

Soon i will be moving to Potong Pasir, sigh ... am really not excited by the whole idea lor ... dont even know where that place is ... :o( Yesterday, heard from the 7-11 auntie that the block at river valley road opposite of 7-11 is out for rent. Can u imagine how excited am i!!!!! Hopefully things went smoothly and i got the house at river valley road. Have to wait for the answer from the auntie. Hopefully its good news.

Dom Perignon = Lau Sai

Yesterday was yet another FUN FUN FUN day although kena a lot of S**T (as usual). Kena counselling session with boss. Anyway, his intention is for our own good ... so nevermind lah.

Have to really thank Ah Fun for the help yesterday, and i just found out that she had a very nice and big 'BANANA' which i like to play with .... hahahah. Really stressed out on the dateline of submission of a report to boss ... so had dinner quite late. Met Ah Girl at BK for dinner at around 7 plus and bumped into Mr. Pattaya, so we had dinner together.

After work, head down to K Box, my gosh ... am like 1 million f**king years never sing liaoz (apart from the fact that when i was in thailand, i did went to karaoke). Really sing until super sore throat. Enjoyed the night very much. Out of a sudden this stupid Ah Boy spit out something ridiculous after i sang my favourite song. Said i like Dom Perignon ... now you see ... 'lau sai' already liaoz lor. You know what u had said lorrrr and you should jolly well know what i meant .... na beh! Lucky no one else on that night heard it ... phew! Anyway ... here is the song ... pls enjoy everyone ... very meaningful lyrics.

Sing until 6am ... geee ... was freaking tired until slept there.

p/s : Regarding about the cupid's arrow thingy, i think he missed and too bad ... am the good old lonely soul again. Never mind lah .... i will keep on seaching, hopefully jus like the ugly caterpillar, will one day transform into a beautiful butterfly ... and thats my journey as the lonely ugly caterpillar.

Targeted by Cupid

Had 2 wonderful day with the indonesian trainee, thanks to all of you as i really had fun this 2 days! We went to watch movie (geeez, havent been into the cinema for almost 3-4 months oleadi). Yesterday we watch "Evan Almighty", not a very good show though but have some laughs. Today we watch "1408", story line suckx, ending suckx but at least there is a few scene that really people in the cinema screamed! We had to wonder around marina square for almost 2 1/2 hours before the show start.

Yesterday after Evan Almighty, we went to Glutton's Bay for supper. Still loved the Char Kway Teow, they still maintain their quality and for $4 per portion, it is defintely worth it! I wish that they can put more "hum" inside as i really prefer my char kway teow to be hum-full rather than hum-less. LOL.

As of today .... I felt that I had been tergeted by cupid!!! Hopefully something will happen sooner or later. I will keep my finger crossed.

Nothing much happened to me this 2 days, jus the normal routine of work and work and more work!!! Thankfully got the chance to see all 3 of my motivator/morale booster today ... at least it help a bit to brighten up my day.

Been thru a bit of frustration last night, all my closing shift staff left without informing me, the best thing is, the whole freaking terrace is still full of soccer fans, and they jus dont care and left a poor trainee down there to settle all the s**t!!! Of course i made a great big fuss about the incident ... and i will just wait and see ... coz i really believe in karma --~~what goes around, comes around~~-- How they treat the poor girl will surely be punished (and guess what, they were punished today!!!) Stayed back to help and cheer her up.

Of course, today the first step into the locker, already got people gossipping about the incident yesterday night. WTF, fire was starting to burn again, being me ... of course i curse and swear lah!!!!! Had dinner at Koufu with some colleagues, and before i head back to work, they told me that they are got to catch 'ratatouille', arrrggghhhh ... how envy am i.

Dinner operation got 2 VIPs ... made me see beh busy lor, one is Richard Blamey, for those who know him, should know what he expect lah .... the CSCS thing. Thank god he is quite a nice person so not much attention that need to be showered upon him. Next is the Executive Editor of SPH, Ms Kuan Yong ... quite a powerful name in media and food critic. Havent seen her for like 1/2 a year liaoz, lucky still remember her face ... at least made her feel see beh special. This one must really take good care, or else if she write something bad bout oscars, confirm my ass will be buttered until smooth and slippery one lor.

Towards the end of the shift, thought of a peaceful night, suddenly pops up a half drunk irritating angmoh at terrace making a big fuss. Was mumbling to myself, "NOT AGAIN!" She and her friends were having drinks and when they were presented with the check, a total of $130 plus, she was fine with it but this colleague of mine accidentally pressed 7 instead of 1, so she was charged $730 plus!!! Adjusted the CC charge slip and presented her the correct one, she refused to sign and said that we were cheating her. OMFG, tried my best to talk and reason with her until breathless, in the end settled. All the terrace staff cant go back cos of my counselling session.

Here is the best part, something about the karma thingy, one of the terrace staff was nagging about why tomorrow night only 2 person working, 1 junior captain and 1 captain, this is where i caome in and said "Oh ... 2 person is more than enough already whereby you all can actually let 1 trainee run the show". Feeling embarassed, hummiliated and speechless, they just went off. But then again, i will defintely arrange more staff as i dont want it to jeopardise the operation cos i would love to have a peaceful night prior to my day off.

Ang Moh aka Gwai Lou

Busy day throughout ... be it lunch, hi-tea, dinner and even supper!!! Totally tired! But it wont put out the fire of blogging in me ... no no no ... it happened once and i dont want history to repeat itself, i will keep on blogging no matter what!

Today i was irritated by all the ang mohs around me, be it guest or colleague. First up, this ang moh guest was drinking so much erdinger until he was high liaoz, said that our chair ripped his shirt! When he approach Iz, he scolded Iz and claimed that cheepo shirt of his cost over $200!!! Even ask us to compensate for the loss, haiz ... what can we do but just apologise and smile lor ... Got his name card and had to raise the hiccup form and alert the whole world.

Next ang moh, even worst! A free labour trainee from Germany, by the way ... Tini gave him a wonderful unique nickname -McStinky-, hahaha ... i wonder what that means :p Ok, it's his last day at work today (thank god), he just a pain in the ass *puik* amd full of s**t. Enuff of him, change topic cos not worth talking bout him.

Got a very good compliment from a guest today, his name is Mr. Poh (quite a big shot and own a few big shipping company, friend of our very own Mr. G and Mr. EAM), Mr. EAM was surprised to see him having supper at oscars about 10 plus cos most of the time he and his family will only have meals at GP ... and the best thing is ... this is what he told Mr. EAM "You will see more of us at oscars because of him (pointing at me)" @_@ WOW ... was blushing already and cant even spit out any words. What to do, just smile lor. At least it boost up my morale again.
