Life + Starbucks =)

It's 6.30am now.... cant fall to sleep after i awake from my dreamland =s ... so then finally make up my mind to write up my blog XD ... cause its been almost 1 month ++ never update my blog and plus didn't visit some of my fav blogger's blog...

So what I'm doing for the whole month lately ? XD ... i couldn't write out all here ... cause that's a lot for me to put here XD if i really do so @_@ this entry might full of WORDS again XD ....

It's been 1 month ++ I've working in Starbucks, yet that's also one of the reason why i didn't post up my blog as well ... after I've work... I'm become slothful =s ... not only didn't update my blog but also didn't go work out in Gym lately =s i paid for the Gym Fees but attended myself just 4 days for the whole month XD ... totally wasted =( .... still in thinking whether i should continue or not though ... because of working schedule, so I have to sacrifice my time for it, sometimes friend who ask me out for tea at night as well, therefore... not much time left for me to do my stuff~ sigh ... Nevertheless .... i still love my job very well =)

There's so many peoples ask me about my job, whether is a good place to work / fun or not .... the answer / feedback from me would be definitely a big " YES " XD ... i enjoy very much on working in Starbucks ... yet i love all my partners/Manager/Shift Supervisor =) i get to learn a lot of things from here ... a lot peoples thought that a Barista is a job which nothing different with a waiter job ?? ... but well ... the answer would be totally wrong if u think like this XD ... Barista is a Multi-tasking job, which not just serve peoples with drinks, yet we also take the roll to communicate with our Customer, get the opportunity to learn / taste the World Best Coffee Bean / Coffee Knowledge, and might as well can learn the so call " Legendary Service " from Starbucks. Of course there's much more I've learnt other than the above I've mentioned =) ... That's why i always felt Lucky to be one of the member in Starbucks =)

So What happen for this month was aaa ... yea of course for a newbie ... must have a lot of " MISTAKE " 1 lor XD ... last time I've mentioned that i burn a croissant... but now ... not just a croissant anymore hahaha... Some common mistake from me " wrong drinks " , " wrong ingredient for the drinks " , " key in the wrong items for the Counter Machine " POS " , " Wrong call up drinks "..... those are the common mistake i always did, but of course now ... getting better =) trouble is getting less ... but still sometimes there's still a possibility I'll do something wrong again ? who knows ? haha... but yea human being is like that ... learn from the mistake =) also ... have to say Thanks again for Starbucks ... cause Starbucks culture ... they will not scold / blame their partners =) that's one of the Pros to work in Starbucks as well XD cause u can get to learn things without Stress like others Restaurant does ... Manager scold their staff in front of Customers... this will never happen in Starbucks for sure =) That's why you can really enjoy working in Starbucks.

Lastly, since so many peoples asked me about " Where's my uniform " Pict ... so I'm gonna post up here =) ... Thx " Jill " ex-partner who work in Starbucks before took the photo for me =)... glad to meet you & "Asrul" the supervisor in taiping branch XD ...
