Decided to take a 1-month break before starting my battle again in July~ Yes, finally my turn! Haha! Have been shamelessly staying in office during non-peak periods, but this time round I decided to take because everyone is on leave and I don’t wanna be alone in office every day 😴 #boreddieme
Found an ad-hoc job and went for interview right away on the first day of break! HAHAHA. Damn efficient, I know~ I always believe that 工不难找，钱不难赚，as long as you are not fussy and willing to work for it! 💪
Although it’s just a 2-day job, it can still help to supplement my upcoming trip expenses a little, and it’s definitely better than staying at home. Money doesn’t come when I stay at home~ I have learnt since young that money doesn’t fall from the sky, so I will always work hard for my own income and expenses.
I despise parents who give their kids everything they want, 要什么就买什么，not even as rewards. Become the habit of 衣来伸手，饭来张口; that’s why kids nowadays think that they can get anything and everything they want without having to work hard for it. And one day when the parents can no longer support them, the kids will not be able to survive on their own.
Okay to be honest, when I applied for the job, it says, “Supermarket packers“, so I imagined it to be inside the warehouse, don’t have to 抛头露面 kind~ Imagine I bump into someone I know (or my boss!!!), how am I gonna explain?! Hahaha!
The job turned out to be more of retail assistant, because of the location I chose. Like if I have chosen somewhere else, I might have landed up in a supermarket, helping the cashier to pack the stuff. But because I chose J8, for the ease of my travel, I ended up in the Guardian~ But it wasn’t too bad, at least I don’t have to deal with the stress of packing the wrong things together, like sanitary pad with food (which actually to me it’s okay 😒).
I was on morning shift on the first day and there were some screw up from the recruitment agency’s side. Reported at 9am but was told that the person I am looking for is at Novena outlet instead? And even if I am at the correct outlet, my shift should only start at 10am???
Freaked out and tried to call the agent but to no avail! No answer, no reply, nothing! In my mind I was thinking, “Shit. Don’t tell me I woke up so early for nothing!” But since it’s just an ad-hoc job, I also didn’t care much. I will insist they still pay me from 9 to 5, or I will just go home and sleep! 😒
So after wasting 30 minutes getting free pay, the agent finally replied that I can just start work while they settle it internally. But since my nice manager said the official store opening hour is 10am and he has nothing for me to do yet, I was told to just walk around the store 😂 Another free 30 minutes pay!
Time passed slower for the morning shift because there’s not much crowd, plus it was raining~ Was asked to give out flyers to attract more people, so that was basically how I spent the first half of my shift. Was praying every second that I don’t bump into anyone I know!!! HAHAHA. Thank goodness I did not~ Except 1 NDP auntie whom I dislike, but she didn’t really look at my face; she was looking at the flyer.
Second half of the shift was serving customers in the store, giving basket and etc, cause my colleagues said I am clearing the flyers way too fast and they need to save some for evening and next day 😂 Too efficient already…hahaha!!! But I have pretty nice colleagues and manager to work with, so it was still rather fun~
Meeting up with Shrine and buddy at night and got free TWG macarons from the latter! He’s supposed to get me Lady M for my super belated birthday but he has been procrastinating and trying to bribe me with these macarons instead 😒
Was on afternoon shift for day 2 and time definitely passed faster with the crowd, since it’s the last day too~ Same duties of giving out flyers and serving customer – encountered a really ridiculous one that kept asking why that particular toothpaste doesn’t have the ingredient she wants 😑
She even told me to ask the pharmacist, cause she’ll know better, which I did and then she started arguing with the pharmacist:
“They used to have it (that ingredient) inside. I have bought this before!”
“But it is really not stated in the ingredients here.”
“You should ask them why they don’t have it now! I am a nurse, I know. They used to have it.”
“And I am a pharmacist. I am just trying to help you here. There is really no such ingredient inside. *walks off*”
I was like 😐😐😐… Speechless and don’t know what to do. So in the end I decided to walk off as well and leave Madam Ridiculous on her own~Kinda miss encountering such memorable incidents and meeting all kinds of people, though I know this is the kind that I hate. It’s just an experience; there are still many nice ones out there too!
Was kinda busy so dinner break got delayed till 8pm. Since it was too late to eat anything heavy, and I was tempted by a customer walking past the store with this in hand, I decided to get one too! Hehe! First time trying the yam flavour, love it!!!
So that kinda marked the end of my 2 days of work~ Quite interesting and fun, made some new friends too 😀 Wouldn’t really call it “work“, cause like I told them, “我是来玩的“…hahaha! Just wanna kill time by finding things to keep myself occupied! I just cannot imagine staying at home the whole
day week, let alone the whole month!
So excited about the picnic because I get to make my salad and egg mayo sandwich…hehe! More excited about the bands because Shagies was one of them and I hadn’t heard them sing for such a long time! 😀
Warming the crowd up with the 家喻户晓 YMCA! 😀
Got caught getting high 😆 Super love the atmosphere! Love live bands, love the songs, and love the high-ness~! I truly think I will enjoy concerts in general if I were to attend one! Can jump the whole night…hahaha!
Another 2 popular rock songs – We Will Rock You & It’s My Life!
Favourite song of the night – You Give Love A Bad Name!
Awesome AWESOME night!!! ❤ Enjoyed it tremendously! Thank you all for fulfilling my concert and picnic wish…hehe! Makes me really wanna go to a concert now! JJ can you faster come to Singapore~~~
One last NDP practice and off I go to Aussie! Mommeyyyyyyyyyyyyy here I come~!!! 😀 MAD EXCITEDDDDDD.
