I am sitting at my desk at work typing this out while literally waiting for the next 30mins until I finish my shift at 7pm. I did the 11am to 7pm shift today to help my colleague Jay who needed to be with her family, I don’t mind doing this time to be honest.
I get to have a two hour sleep in from my usual 6am wake up, I can relax and enjoy the morning sun before work and then when I finish work its dinner time so I’ll usually head into Chinatown to get food. Friday finishes at 7pm are the best because every week we have the night markets open, so pork buns and dumplings yes please!
My mum also reminded me last night that we have only nine days until we are flying to Hawaii again on Mother’s Day, it also made me realise that I have yet to pack my suitcase, whoops! Last time I was in Hawaii was two years ago and I had the best time! Not only did I get a healthy tan, I got my first pair of Louboutin sandals, tried Godiva’s choc coated Oreos, shopped a lot in Hot Topic and Kate Spade, experienced the amazing Polynesian cultural centre, climbed Diamond Head and went to Pearl Harbour.
Going with the parents as always, even at 30 I still have a blast with them and I don’t care what others think on that note. I will start the packing tomorrow, yay for the weekend! and TGIF!
All this excitement of leading up to the end of the year, my new work opening at the beginning of next month and I will be joining them in January has got this week going very quickly. Today on my day off was quiet during the day though I have been writing a fair lot even if its one shots that have been inspired by my dreams. I used to do this a lot when I was in high school, I’d have a random idea pop into my head and I used to quickly write it down in a notebook or type up a story on the downstairs computer.
It is why I have so many books that are half full in my book shelf and in the drawers too, I had an endless imagination that a tiny piece was only used during my roleplaying days on IMVU. I guess being hardly online in either virtual universe, the imagination is waking up even more and I am creating my own alphabet, drawing up maps and creating new fantasy species especially for the bigger tales. Alongside my Ame chronicles, I have about four other big stories saved on my laptop.
I guess four days off can be classified as a mini holiday for most people especially when usually even after 6-7 days of work, you still only get the required two day weekend. For me in the hotel industry, this is quite a luxury and though I haven’t been exactly productive though I have packed majority of clothes needed for Europe and I did cook dinner for the family tonight (they loved it too :D) my days off so far have been very chilled out.
I have one more day off and again it will probably be nothing too crazy however I am getting something done which will be listed below in my weekly likes. Once again delivering my five positive thoughts for the week;
Re-connecting with one of my girls in the Hen Den past two days has been sweet
Skype calls with the boyfriend, seeing each other’s cats on camera too
Dollhouse DIY’s on youtube, I don’t know why but they are so relaxing to watch before bed
I am getting my hair done ombre tomorrow! I’m adding a mahogany hue to the ends 😀
The rain mixed with the cold weather of winter is never a good combination especially when you have been working for seven days straight at work, this is me currently. I did it as a favour for one of the guest service agents who wanted Friday off and rather than split our days off, we decided to swap our weekend completely. I don’t mind, I have tomorrow and Monday off and hoping that the rain holds off tomorrow so my family, bestie Mei and I can check out Vivid in the city.
I was originally going to vent under the sub heading of Neko Irritation but decided not to and instead just place it here in my diary entry. All my good friends know that I cannot stand fair-weather friends (A friend who is only a friend when circumstances are pleasant or profitable. At the first sign of trouble, these capricious, disloyal friends will drop their relationship with you.) I have had my fair share of them online, none in reality of course because it is a whole different ball game beyond the computer.
But online, you have so many and it usually occurs of when they striving to climb the pixel social ladder or wanting a boyfriend or a man who is DTF, I sadly had to release a fair-weather friend last night after my gut feeling became true. And it wasn’t just me, two of my other girl friends noticed it too and also deleted this friend. It is quite unfortunate because I knew her on IMVU for the past 5 years? And she helped me re-do my avatar when I returned to that pixel universe. Let’s just hope she knows what she is doing…

Wonder Woman! I need to watch it again, it was absolutely amazing and Gal is soaring high!
Family time last weekend after AM shift, I don’t get much time with my cousins but when I do it is always crazy in a good way
I got three days off and though I didn’t do much and returning to work tomorrow morning, it has been quite chilled out and relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle in the hotel or going out and having family parties. Tonight is my usual driving or bus into the city for my regular Chinatown Friday night markets which means food time!
I got five days of work this week but it is getting more exciting because I am learning the ropes for a team leader, wish me luck I get this promotion soon!

After last weekend’s non stop action, this week has been fairly slow, the past week was all PM shifts and training the new GSA, she been nailing the checklist so I had confidence that she would be fine to work on her own when I went on my days off. Weekend was exciting and did a lot of socialising with my friendship group from high school.
Now I’m halfway through my AM shifts in this new week and so far it’s been quiet because of this Easter long weekend, I don’t mind it has been nice to catch up on projects that had to be put on hold because of my teaching or busy days where we are 100% and full of corporate guests.

Quiet weekend at work, everyone still on holidays!
I powered through the 8 days of AM shifts the past week and managed to get the new guest service agent onto doing the morning checklist and doing check outs, I had a proud mum moment on the last day before I had to get home for the drive to Canberra with mum. The ravioli in the tea room last night in the Hyatt was delicious, light but full of carbs which according to my mum is what you need to have before a big walk/run.
Woke up this morning at 5:15am, room service breakfast got delivered of wholemeal toast and either poached or scrambled eggs, boyfriend was jealous from the photo. The start line for the running festival was across the road from the hotel so we were quite fortunate and walked there. Mum got a personal best with going under 90mins, she beat her own score that we did at the Blackmore run last year and that was 9km!
I think my five likes are just from the last day of work and this weekend to be honest;
Though I did not get under 90 I did get under 100mins and finished it, got a medal
Managed to sleep very well last night in the hotel’s bed

Even though I worked only 5 days last week, 3/5 days was super busy because the hotel was sitting at 100% occupancy, not looking forward to waking up tomorrow at 5am because I gotta be at work an hour early. Ew! Also 7 days of work this week, double ew! I’ll get through it as I always do, but listing off the 5 likes I had this past week.

I had some vents during the week but they all simmered down as I ended up shrugging it off and going meh. Karma is karma and sometimes you shouldn’t make mountains out of mole hills.
I was given another five days off from my work and been enjoying the past two days with my bestie Mei because she also got a week off from work. Talk about perfect timing! Not much going on for us other than dinners, movies and discussing our characters plot lines which is going on very well. She has posted two stories go to Meiakane’s blog to read it! 😀 It syncs up with my Ame Hayato chronicles.
