Come Away With Me, 8:36 PM, Wednesday, April 30, 2008
Have you ever taken something for granted? Bet you do cause I did but not in this case which I'm gonna post about. It's been 4 months since I started out as a part-time Barista at Starbucks and it's been a week since I resigned. I'm not wholed as I was at work. I shouldn't call it work cause it really isn't to me more like home? Family business? For those who been there and see me there they would know. KL Plaza is where the 1st store of Starbucks came upon in the year of 1998! I was glad that I was placed here and no where else. I met awesome rocking people here.
I have many uncountable and irreplaceble memories there. I'm pretty sure I won't be forgetting any of them too. How could I right? I miss them already and so much till I wanna not go college and just rush down there put on my apron and cap and start making drinks once more.
Julie, Chris, Kak Aida and Hani are my managers. Julie is the head of all 3 of them. She's the store manager. She is a natural leader I tell ya. We all love her and whenever she speaks we would just listen and follow cause we know she is the best and she is kind and funny. She have a great laugh. Something like Melody or Mun Mun my cousin. Chris is older than me 2 years. She is going to go back to Johor for SUKMA in Volleyball which she is gonna represent her own state. She is the pretty and beautiful chinese girl like Julie only that her english are cute and funny when she speaks of it. She will go in the morning to me, "Don't LIE la...!" or "Eeee.. Bodoh!" hahahaha.. She has many more funny things to say. We both sings chinese songs together mostly and always Lee Shen Jie songs. When we speak in chinese. Whoever is on floor will go, "EH! Ini Starbucks China or Hong Kong ke? Kita tak faham la." She's SINGLE and AVAILABLE! So guys out there look out. Kak Aida is like our datin. She has that grace and elegance you could see in a Datin. She is motherly too like Julie but not all the time. She is a IN mom I tell ya. Hani is the crazy manager of all 3! She is nuts! She's funny and she is just fun to work with. Hani will touch my butt whenever she could actually she does that to any of us when she can. Lol. Then I will go like, "Ehhh... Hani! Don't la.."
When it come to partners. Eddie is the 1st who treated me really friendly and thought me to do whipped cream and stock ups. He is a funny guy. He likes to party. G is my oniichan means big brother. We both will go scolding at each other in japanese and Eddie and Kak Aida will go, "Eh.. Ni Starbucks Jepun ke?!" Ilham, Ju, Lopez, Lee, Fatihha, Dee, Step, Lina, Yuz, Bob, Izwan, Vannan and Siew are my partners too! So I don't really wanna bore you guys with details with all of them. Lol.
The point really is that I miss them. I miss the place. I miss everything there and there. I miss the songs, the noise, the laughters, the jokes. Awww man.. It sucks really for me to leave them when they are gonna close down soon! I really really wanted to stick with them till they close down. I have no regrets now just that I haven't get use to not having them with me every morning on the weekdays. They are part of me I grow to know and bond with.
Now I just have to adjust myself and focus on what's important now that is college. I will have fun there too. I know I will. Just need the time to get things right.

It Ends Tonight
My day started rather well. Reach work early so I sat down in front of the computer and started to type a letter to show my thanks and all to everyone whom I will miss and missing them already. Its really like hard to leave that place. Every morning I will drag myself up no matter how tired or sick or pain I am to just go to work. I will miss everything from the moment I wake up till night when I reach home and sleep. Now everything has changed. I'm starting college like on Tuesday at HELP University College. Foundation in Arts. So yeah. A whole brand new life I've never seen, feel, touch, sense or smell. A whole new world.. A drazzling place I never knew..*Aladdin song* Aite. Cut through the whole drama drama crap which I'm not that good at so here are the photos. You-Ree was not comfortable and happy with how Dee looks at sis and her and when Dee just grap the spray from my hand. Dont worry.. I'm LOYAL! Lol.
Where I got SLIMED!!
Me done with throwing the rubbish and G was so good washing and scrubbing the bin clean and doesnt smell at all. He went all in the bin washing it all. Kesian him.I wanna just say thanks to gf and sis for being there on my last night at work. Really meant a lot to me for you both to be there. Had a great night and I didn't sulk into the whole leaving work thingy. I really enjoy myself with you guys. Thanks for being just there. Hugs hugs hugs. Love ya. Love you guys at Starbucks too. Sigh. I'm missing you guys over there. Tomorrow is a new start. Bet I will do just fine. At least I hope I would. Hoping for the best and smiling with my head up high upon the world.
