Textured

September 20, 2013



Outfit://Tee - Bershka//Shorts - Forever21//Bag - Nessa//Shoes - Local Store//Watch - Casio//


Just scored this top from Berhska at 70% off its original price... which was expensive for a plain black top by the way. But the leather-ish feel and reptile-like texture made it a total steal. Even just worn with skimpy denim shorts and my usual smug face, with right shoes, I think the outfit still look put together.

On life matters, I haven't had the craziest experience as I just did these few days at work. Did I miss out of the part of telling you that Chezka and I work as concierges for a hotel? Well, that we are; a supposedly posh job, interacting with guests, telling them what to do, what to see in this little Macau we call home, blah di blah. Easy enough to understand, right? Except that in our case, we work for a not-so-ordinary hotel with 4000 rooms available to sell at any given night... take it that a busy day on a normal hotel with full occupancy is just an ordinary day for us. And you'd think it can't get any worse than that. But in fact it just did! We've been receiving groups after groups of tours, with the latest one being the biggest of them all, occupying 2500 rooms, with at least 2 persons in each. Can you imagine how many people we had to deal with? For the most part, actually dealing with the people is manageable, and that overtime was inevitable. But what I didn't expect was to deal with their luggage... 9000 of them! I repeat, 9000 pieces! It took 9000 luggage for every person at the Front Office department to almost break and go nuts. I think we were busier than the airport at that! I tell you, the part of being a concierge isn't necessary if you had to deal that much amount of luggage because we had to help the bell service in carrying them, storing them, and eventually dispatching them all. I had to learn the hard way that while working for a big company come with perks, it most definitely come at a price. Take it from me darlings.

Anyway, enough of my rants. I'm just eager to take my off, which will be tomorrow. All I plan to do is laze my ass off, eat all day and sleep all night. Feels like I haven't done that in a while and I deserve a break from this madness. Now talk to me. What are your plans for the weekend?  

P.S. A little token for working so hard on the past days, I got this gingerbread man from the senior management. Cute enough... but not enough. Haha. Oh well. I broke it's leg before eventually eating it so...
