Yes!!! I finally have lots of inspiration to write this blog after almost 2 years worth of brain damage caused by too much studying that killed all the funny cells in me.
Anyhoo, I realized something damn sad, which is that according to some website that helps weigh the value of your blog, the value of my blog (aka this blog) has dropped by 64 FREAKING PERCENT.
I am not even exaggerating.
But, since I can’t help the fact that people don’t find sponsored posts interesting and thus gave up reading this blog that sometimes have a surplus of sponsored posts (com’on, I find sponsored posts an annoyance to read too!), I can only write more interesting posts to tell you about my very interesting life.
For instance, I am going to be working at Ritz Carlton soon as a banquet waitress.
Yes, seriously. And I can’t wait for my job to start post training because I have been wanting to work in a hotel almost all my life. I like the ambiance in hotels, and I especially like Ritz Carlton since I read about it in Xiaxue’s blog and it sounds like such a wonderful place.
Charmy told me that being a banquet waitress is going to be horrifyingly tiring, a news that took the edge off my high and sobered me up a little bit. But hey, working in a hotel is still going to be much more fun than working in Mac, where you earn a minimum wage of about 5 bucks per hour.
Not to mention that hotels are so much classier.
Anyway, I went down for my job interview yesterday, which was less of an interview and more of an information session to let me know more about the job requirements etc. It was simply awesome.
Basically, I could choose between three locations, which are mainly: Cityhall, Orchard Road and Sentosa. I was originally assigned to work at Four Seasons hotel with this other girl that came at the same time, but the problem was that Four Seasons is at Orchard, which is even further from my house than Cityhall. Imagine the amount of busfare that I have to pay each day. *shudders in horror*
Anyway, I told my person in charge that I would prefer Cityhall since it is nearer, and she swapped me into Ritz Carlton, which had me dancing with joy since hey! It is a hotel I have heard of!!!
I kinda wish that the other girl would be swapped into Ritz too, since she is rather nice, friendly and full of smiles. I wouldn’t mind having her as a friend hehe. I mean, Cityhall is probably nearer for her too, since I caught her saying that she lived at Woodlands.
Anyhoos, we were given this paper with the requirements for working as a banquet waitress, which roughly includes:
- No fringe around the face
- Use hair gel to secure fly-aways
- Use hair net to secure hair bun (only if your bun is messy)
- Wear formal leather shoes (actually they say fabric flats is also fine)
- Formal black pants
- No outrageously dyed hair colours (Thank god I never had the money)
- Black socks above ankles
My suggestion is that if someone likes to misspell everything when typing a whatsapp message to you (SMS is different, since it costs money for some) and they like to spell “you” as “u” and “with” as “wif”, ignore the dude or dudette. Can you imagine a person being too lazy to move even an extra few centimeters to type in a properly spelled word??
OH YES I have another thing to complain about. Which is about those who are forever complaining or saying that they cannot find jobs and that they are so envious of those who have jobs. And then when you tell them that jobs aren’t actually delivered to their houses by a postman knocking on their doors, they say this annoying line,
“I want to find a job that I can fully dedicate myself to. One that I am passionate in. I don’t want to earn money for the sake of earning money. I want to do it for my own interest.”
Which is like, okay, perfectly logical. But it is the way they say it: like they are above you since they are hinting that they are looking for a career or some crazy passion that they always have (and can potentially earn them billions, god knows) whilst you are working as a (not) miserable part-timer.
Earn money for the sake of earning money? I am betting that half the population are doing that. Not everyone gets the job of their dreams, which is why sometimes, what you study in University and what you do is ultimately different. Your parents are probably also doing that to bring you up.
Okay, enough of my annoyance-fueled rambling. My whole point is, just don’t be a spoilsport when others get a new job. I mean, it is perfectly fine if you don’t want to do whatever that your friend is going to be doing, just don’t go and rain on other people’s parade. Also, keep the deep philosophies you have to yourself, or your blog (like I do) since people have a choice of whether they want to read it or not.
I am pretty glad that Max was quite positive when I told him that I was part-timing as a banquet waitress even though he said he was feeling down at that moment. I was literally scream-typing into whatsapp, which admittedly, can be kinda freaky. Anyways, I was kind of glad that I have someone to share it with, heh.
Anyways, I am secretly wishing that Denyse would transfer from the restaurant sector to the hotel sector after her contract is up, so that I would have a friend to work together with haha. It would be more fun and less scary.
Oh right, I was supposed to have another interview today for a job in the marketing/sales and public relationships department of an electronics company, but I ended up cancelling because the person sounded kind of shady…like meeting in Chinatown? Weird.
Actually I have something else to write about, but I kind of lost my train of thoughts…never mind, till next post! Keep reading, kay?
