MAS Training & more

It has been a very tiresome week for me. I finally have a day off today and tomorrow actually. However, my sister gave me a rude-awakening this morning, waking me up from my sound sleep asking me to go to work. I'm on leave la!!! It was also supposed to be my Saturday off tomorrow but I need to get back to work because some Pn Sri is visiting the factory and I had some agendas instructed by boss. So no choice but to get my ass back to work tomorrow after Jill's Birthday party tonight.

How nice to wake up at 10.30 am on a working day! I almost forgot how enjoyable the day can be without passing through the morning madness on the roads and having to read dozens of emails every morning. Then reality sets in as phone calls and smses came streaming in when I was on the toilet seat in the bathroom not more than 10 seconds after my handphone was switched on...

Yesterday's schedule had been really crazy, I rushed to KLIA for a meeting with the MAS delay team at 11am, then collected some samples from Chef at the Regional Lounge, interviewed a new promoter at McDonalds before rushing back to the factory at 1pm. It took me 20 mins from KLIA to reach the factory in Glenmarie, my record time and yes, I've been speeding like a mad woman behind the 4w drive. It might only take me half that time if I'm driving some Porsche.

The MAS cabin crew arrived at 2.00pm for a training session with my chef and I. It was a chocolate factory visit and product knowledge training for them to be familiar with Fidani as the brand is selling on board in every MAS flight. It was also my first time providing training to air steward and stewardess. I was also very excited and it will be an experience to me. Who knows that one day, I can find a new career in the training department?!! You'll never know....



So that was me babbling on Fidani and how good it is. Well, I was rather surprised that they were all very attentive and cooperative. Many times, the listeners are quite passive when it comes to answering questions and voicing out their opinions but it's not the case when it comes to MAS cabin crew!



They had a fun time with Chef Amer when he told them what goes into making chocolate and the difference between white, milk and dark chocolate. Sorry, no revealing of recipes though.



The best session is of course the chocolate tasting session where most of them really loved the durian chocolates. I was also quite surprised because usually people will give me a kinda look when I asked them to try the durian chocolates.



All of them were so into the durian chocolates that they had to purchase some of it on the spot. We also gave them a goodie bag and everyone was extremely happy. Phew...another mission accomplished. After that, I had another discussion session with my boss before calling it a day.

So, Mom came home last week. No more cooking anymore for me which is another reason to celebrate besides the cleaning and emptying the thrash bin. It had been 2 months that my sisters and I have been sharing the house chores. She came home with a few luggages bagging liquor, handbags, wallets, accessories, cooking utensils, my Wilton baking utensils and of course pots and pans. Haha... yep, that's my mom. Every time she comes back from Dubai, there will be at least 2 new handbags and lots of cooking pots and pans. It's cheap I supposed.

And as usual, she did her occasional complaints about how dirty the house was especially under our beds and hers too, there were too much dust everywhere and all sorts of dirt she can dig in the house. I hope she would not be nagging about the same thing a week later. I spent my whole afternoon today watching the Korean drama "Full House". I am no big fan of Korean drama but after watching how cute some actors can be and the ooh la la body of RAIN, I'm hooked. I think I've watched 4 episodes this afternoon... Shit, is this how I should spend my leave?!! I hate you RAIN.

China does not access to foreign blogs, isn't it? There are only specific places that allow you to access overseas.

Internet censorship is also going on in Singapore. Does anyone have any idea about accessing some of the blogs?
