Diary of May...

It's been so fast that now had gone through to the Mid year of 2009, also...i have been working in Starbucks for 2 month ago now XD ... as the mistake i make for now cannot consider as a " NEW PARTNER MISTAKE " anymore .... so no excuse for me hehe... but so far i work there really happy =) , I've got a bunch of great partners which like a big family there .... enjoy very much for every single moment being there ... I've even make quite a number of friends here which they were the regular customer for our store, used to visit our store quite often. Once again ... Thanks Starbucks Ipoh has gave me such a wonderful place to work for ... and wonderful experiences I have got in my life =) Love all my Partners =)

What had happened for May was aa.... quite Happy and also " Bankrupt " !! had some Birthday Celebration with 3 of my friends ... Darren , Bou and Theng .... the pity of myself shared the present with all my friends ... but cannot get back the exact amount =s .... also my Laptop adaptor been broken... get another new 1 which cost me
100 bucks ++ .... a new Japanese Conversation Class had just Started which cost me another 100 bucks ++ sigh .... really bankrupt this month hoho ...

So, forget about all those financial stuffs... there's also something interesting in this month... It wont be all the while in unhappy and sad isn't it ? =)... Look at the Picture below

that's a Boeing 747 Model !! yea XD ... this thing been made me really really jumping in the heaven haha .... actually it's an really old thing, since last time my parents and me went for trip they got this on the flight ... actually it has 2 of this flight model ... but another 1 maybe i have broke it when i was young @_@ ... cause i still can remember that last time i got one, but i never appreciate it when i was a KID !!! treat it like a toy =s ... and has no idea where i thrown it XD ... lucky there's still 1 Boeing 747 model !! i love 747 very much ... that's why I'm happy with this model !!
Model done in the date of 29th May 09



Photo that i captured in Sunway Lost World Of Tambun


Besides, still I've got a 1 day trip in Sunway Lost World of Tambun ... although there's a place which is kind of boring for Ipoh fella.... but ... whenever u go this place with a bunch of peoples .... put fully of yourself in this place ... it might be a different story. I went there with a few of my friends, yet got discount !! cause i follow the group of a design college " ERA Technology " got student discount ! so just paid 15 bucks i can got in and play for whole day .... really enjoy the place ... Hot Sun, crowded peoples, get to know another bunch of friends in this trip .... but didn't really take any photos there ... too bad...

The Only Group Photo in sunway finally upload now haha ... hopefully it's not too late =) ... but don't think there's people will notice that ;D




In 2nd of June - Attended myself for the first meeting in Starbucks ... that's the first time i attend the meeting ... so I've no idea how it works, I did asked Siti what should i wear for this meeting ... at first i thought its a Formal kind of meeting ... so must wear uniform for the meeting ... but It's not ... i chooses myself a casual wear to attend the meeting. I forgot to bring a notebook which its compulsory to bring some paper or so to copy down something we discuss there because of the meeting, our Manager Carene might ask some question about it !! ... so must pay attention while meeting haha ... It's consider a half formal kind of meeting, we seated down in Starbucks and discussed about some New coming promotion or cleaning task, and also some new Recipe for the drinks ... Before the meeting ... we did have some time to do " Coffee Tasting " yea !! that's the benefit to be a Barista !! can taste out all the coffee in Starbucks ... for this day we tried coffee " Verona " Firhad was the one who conducted for this coffee and this coffee will be selling for this month ... so after we all tried out ... have to take note for this coffee ... so when customer ask for it ... we could explain to them how the taste of this coffee is ...

that's how coffee tasting conducted ... prepare coffee in the coffee press and serve... after tasting out the coffee the Cups was given to every partners !! so next time whenever there is coffee tasting... we will use back our own cup with our name on the cup =D



Coffee of the month.... every month for every barista will get 1 pack of whole bean Coffee !! that's 2 of it so far i got it from store =D ... but don't really know how to explain and taste out the coffee yet haha .... have to take time =) doing my Coffee Passport right now... learning =)





Has Been Typing so much here haha .... to be continue next time...
ENJOY LIFE , ENJOY DREAM , ACHIEVE DREAM , MAKE IT DREAM COME TRUE ....

Wow, that 747 model really is old! I remember building the same thing, or maybe similar during my flight to Hong Kong back in 1993! I never really got to play with it though; if I remember correctly, I assembled it wrongly, and broke some parts trying to disassemble them, and the stewardess wouldn't gimme a new one :(

Oh, btw, it's "diary", dairy is milk la :D

Ivan said...
