F1 is over...wuhoo..

Just take a look at the tittle. Can you imagine how happy I am. It really shag working non stop for 2 wks without off days. But i managed to survive, without screwing up the coffee break for the crucial 3 days. Must thanks those aunties and bros that help me up. Although I didn't get to go F1 catering, but i do not think this is a waste. coz i do play a quite important role in those 3 days, i did my items with no errors. And manage to help out in the western set and F1 mise-en-place. Get to know a quite a few friends too, wuhoo..pretty girls...haha..

forgot to mention my newest achievement, I am the top 20 FIFA 08 PS3 player in Singapore.haha..curious why do i have the time to join this competition was held on sat, prelimary match is to play against computer manu. and the top 20 of the competition get to enter to the final on sunday. On sat, released early coz everything is done on time, so was on my way to the mrt through marina square, i then came across this event held in the central area, decided to give it a try and the result ---> *drumsrolling* "........,......,.....Ruijie,........." are the top 20s of fifa o8.but i didn't go..coz of F1..F*#%..the prize is worth abt$3000.not cash..

so actually the main purpose of this post is to show 20 fifa 08 player in singapore...hahaaha..will update tomorrow...bloody from 0700-0000....haha...17 hrs..haha

Busy week...

Main kitchen will be damn busy for this week. 3 days of F1 is also equal to hellweek. With the F1 going on, MK do not need to deal with other event. A 120 pax function on wed => close one eye to them. The actual busiest day will be on sunday, everything just jam on sunday, cocktail and 800 set dinner in house, not including outside catering. So I can actually imagine how chaotic the situation will be, everybody rushing like chicken, chiong here chiong there. My chef already told me my job for this week will be soley in charge of the coffee break for the business floor and pacific club floor. Hope I don't screw up or if i screw up, my chef will screw joke..he said it infront of my face..haha..but after a month of training, i think should not be a problem for me..can handle..

yesterday release on time not early. During the journey home, I almost overshot the mrt, then have dinner with my family, reached home about 9.30, look at the score on chelsea and manu, at that time manu is leading 1-0...guess who the scorer, Park Ji Sung, First Asian that is in the top 4 club in EPL...before he score the goal, my bro was saying he damn lousy like that also can lose the ball...and the next few mins he score the and bro went to check the precious record of the matches between all the top 4. Ji sung actually score against arsenal too..wth..most of the goal he score is very decisive..anyway, manu drew with chelsea in the end , and chelsea maintain a 85 matches home unbeaten record..both teams drop points and this mean Arsenal remain at top position..

i will blog when i got the when i got the time..haha

Let the game begin...

Work has been fine. Next two weeks will be rather shag. Got my off days from friday till monday and also next week friday. After that it will be 9 days without off. As mentioned in the previous post--> F1 root of problem. Two full days Overtime= $$$=Shagshagshag . If you ever work in main kitchen, you will know, there are not much slacking. It work, work and even more work. Especially when you are trainee, even when you are very tired, you can't really ask for a 15 mins break. You will just continued to work work work. Enough of whinning, anyway IT ALL FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. I guess this is the life of a trainee. According to the training roster, main kitchen is the only place to click as many overtime as possible. I am so damn lucky that I posted to main kitchen for September. Wuhoo..OT is just so shiok esp when you work full days..1 day of 12hrs Ot is almost 1/6 of my monthly salary. but first thing first, you must be as fit as me to do Overtime la..haha.

This 3 days of off day, I got to spent it meanifully..haha..sat, went out with the budders union..(adh never go), watch movie, carl's jr , tou hua and butterfly, tcsing wif budders. Cover quite a few topics, ranging from personal childhood memories to even political. Detailed information will not be share, PC. I think gordon and der can go speaker corner, both of them are fabulous speaker. I will vote for them during election, only if they go for election festival..gonna stay at home for dinner. quite a few things to kao dim.
  1. Pack wardrobe
  2. Household chores
  3. help prepare dinner
  4. slack slack and slack..haha

Monday, don't know whether qiqi and der will come or not..come to try wii..but in the morning will go back to shatec to collect my final transcript. GPA will not be as good as previous one..but should be able to maintain above 3.2. but my desired GPA will be 3.5. haha should be alright la..i think.

i think i will just stop here..Happy mooncake festival...haha

Those people: Ruijie, is almost 1 month over here, you should know the stuff le...don't always stand thr..
NXT DAE....each day, mk suppose to provide food for the clubflor and business floor lounge..i will jot down what things to take and the sauce i may need to make...guess what happen..that day suppose to make a 2 portion mango salsa..(a change in menu) i got source for ingredient..cut shallot, chilli, until mango, that person came and indirectly tell the other person why i use so many i just tell her it was stated in the menu..but she told me that don't have..and ask me to do just one i continue doing..but i am very super duper confirm i am rite...and went to check again...and yeh i am so of the menu item change that day..nobody know...i bring out this matter to another person(same grp of people but higher rank)..and he told that girl..wuhoo..i feel like at that very moment, my convidence is back, is just like i just score the equalising goal..before i wanted to tell the other person. that was actually one thing came across my mind..i should heck care abt it..and jus do 1 portion..but my heart and conscience tells me that i am a good man, honest and responsible person, i will not do that...and i am glad i didn't do that.....EXPERIENCE IS NOT 3 wks over here..u many months and even years over here..didn't even bother to check the stuff everyday to c any changes..assume everything is the same everyday..u guys simply don't respect ur job..irresponsible fellow..i don't think u guys do not know the consequences of it..not trying to claim any credit from this incident...what if i keep quiet abt it..not just the clubfloor don't have food..the guest are entittled to it..and they found out there are no food...what the hell.vicious affects every department..not just our own..and in the whole the reputation of the hotel will eventually goes down..seriously i thought of this when i decided to bring out to that something was missing that day..i am glad that i did the right thing..i listening to my heart....

The following is adapted from a message by our late founder and principal of the school, Rev. Bro. J. Chanel.

勤 Diligence
Confucius said that if a person was idle and unconscientious, it would be difficult to educate him. St. Paul once wrote: " If anyone will not work, let him not eat. " A person who is idle and who does not want to labour with his hands or mind will not be successful in his life. Hard work is the key to success and the way to happiness and truth.

勉 Determination
If a person is hardworking but not intelligent, he will acquire wisdom if he is willing to try his best. When we are faced with difficulties, we must always remind ourselves and others that God is always near and will always guide us. Through one's own determination and God's grace, we will definitely overcome our problems.

忠 Loyalty & Dedication
We should strive for sincerity towards others and devotion to our duty. We must endeavour to do the best in all that we do. We must fulfil our obligations and duties towards our neighbours, country, society and the Almighty God without shirking responsibility. This spirit of loyalty and dedication will result in the spirit of self-sacrifice.

勇 Courage
Those who have the courage to face difficulties and challenges will be successful in life.
Courage also means giving way to those who have better ideas. Sometimes, it is standing up for what is right, even to those in authority. Use your patience, determination and courage to do good deeds. When in a fix, look positively for solutions until you have solved your problems. Life is a continuous struggle and strive. Only those who can persevere till the end will have eternal happiness in life.
