Christmas staff dinner

In the afternoon, I met with my friend Galina to go see Black Swan, but we both forgot to check showtime online before hand >.>. After checking on my phone, I realized of the showtimes available are not working for my schedule , since i have to leave for staff dinner at 7pm. Though i'm very disappointed because i was looking forward to seeing it before it even released, nothing can be done at this point. So we decided to just hang around . Clumsy me also forgot wallet at home, and i wasnt sure that my boss gonna cover for us so we went to my place to grab it anyway.

First, me and Galina went to Aberdeen centre to check out their Christmas display. It was so cute <3, much nicer than Metro town's imo.
Gingerbread house so cute <3 <3

 We walked around checking out stores to see if they have anything good on sale, didnt see any, however thats better for my wallet anyway :3.

After touring all Aberdeen (it s not very big), i still had some time left so we off to Richmond Centre. Saw these super cute Owl handbag haha. Galina has an obsession, dare i call it that, with owl  (strange i know). Arent they just perfect for cosplay Harry Porter XD?

For some reason, we always spend so much time at the pet store. If i can, i would like a pet dog, preferably Husky <3. Cats arent bad, but dogs are a lot more loyal and cuddly imo. I had on a big bow that day with a small bell on it, and i discovered pets are really attracted to the tinkling sounds the bell made. This one kitten really enjoyed my bell and was so into playing with my hair , we happened to have almost exact same hair color x). It was so cuttteee. I can keep playing with it foreverr

When i had to leave for the dinner, i knew i was gonna be late. Good thing i wasnt the last one to arrive ;D. The restaurant was called ''Kirin'' (not the Japanese beer brand), and who knews it such a fancy place . We had Chinese standard 10 course meal.

Theres a small table next to ours, which the staffs use for preparing our food. They would first show us the whole dish on the big tray, then proceed to put on small plates for each person. I've never had servers put food on plate for me, definitely feeling like royalty right there. And also fresh plate every dish ;D

The best dish i had to say was the Baked Tapioca pudding *3*. My first time trying it, after going home i went to look for the recipe online, but didnt find the exact same one ;(. Oh well i can always go there when i feel like having it again

After the dinner, my co-worker offered me a ride (Yay!) . I was kindda surprised since usually she seems pretty indifferent, so it was very nice of her. No walking to train in the rain XD

Long day at work

Yesterday work was very tiring for me, close the place mostly by myself, so when im out the door it was already around 9 pm ._.. Late night bus doesnt run as often, so i got home by 10:15pm, and thats when i actually have a proper meal, a sandwich,  haha orz

Today i work from 10 - closing, a long 9 hours work , the teahouse was completely full too, busy busy. I dont dislike customers, but some are just unreasonable and ignorant. Our place had a promotion for afternoon tea, half price, and today was the last day. The people who purchased our coupons, had 3 MONTHS to come use it, but no, some appearently are just PLAIN RETARDED. They wait until the very last day, to call in for reservation. Note Adonia isnt a big place, we are a small business with the capacity of max 35 ppl only and most of the time only 3 staffs. So they cant just demand a table, when there is none available , unless they want to eat on the floor 8[.

So one guy called in like an hour before the afternoon tea time, asking for a spot. Even though my boss being too nice by offering the purchasers to still able to redeem their money by taking the value of the coupon for dine in so they dont lose their money, and my co -worker patiently explain the situation in a respectful tone, he refused to listen and just keep on complaining how this isnt fair to him and we are being unreasonable, and making it sound like its our fault, for he simply FORGOT the expiration date. Policy is policy, cant be change no matter how long you keep whining , idiot . That asshole, taking so much out of our time on the phone , even hung up on my co-worker, and then later call back repeating the same stuffs, just to hung up on us again. Good thing i wasnt the person took the call, my tolerance of people is very lacking, and dealing with annoying stupid customers doesnt help :/

It would help if people actually read the description before making purchase, instead of later complaining to us and degrade out customer service skill. Why do I have to take the blame when its their fault to begin with? Just because i have to be polite to customers, doesnt mean they are God and i have to do as they please. Especially not with the amount they tip me, fucking cheap-ass, already got such a good deal from the coupons (and big loss to us) and cant even give a decent gratitude. Heck some even gave me a pathetic amount of  2 CENTS. Please, if it only that much, dont even bother to give any at all, its even embarrassing for me to receive it

Good thing the promotion is over now, i can come back to server regular people and not having to deal with shit like that anymore

Self Introductory

After much procrastination,  i finally finish making this blog. This, is my first ever official blog, as i am not really into writing stuffs like diary of my daily life, i let photos do the job of keeping my memories.

I just turned 20 in July, once you hit the 20 mark, you start to have that feeling of getting old *sigh*. Currently residing in Vancouver, Canada, where i will probably spend the rest of my life in, because i dont like big changes. I enjoy dressing myself up, life is too short,  look glamorous everyday, is my motto. Even though my style consist of pastel colors like baby pink, baby blue etc, and appears to look innocent, i actually am not kekeke *cough*. My BIGGEST hobby is , horror movies, its the best way for me to relieve stress of everyday life ;). So one might be creeped out when they find that out bout me. But what can i do, its my personality *shrug*

This blog, will be where i update events from my life and my clothing co-ordinate that i find remembering worthy, or interesting. Or just out of poor boredom, some photo dumping hahaha  ;)
