Journey 2 7/8

Cruise had been easy-tough..
It's ok, and apparently a lot of Asians on Baltic cruises..this month at least..
Taking some advantage of my mandarin n canto speaking ability..
But other than that, when facing with Russian etc..bye bye haha

Got pretty tired..
Full station of Japanese..damn! Y didn't I learn some useful jap words..
Looks like watching one piece doesn't help hahaha

And my skin is getting into a really bad condition..I donno why =(

And apparently I 'stole' someone's sales..but u know what? I don't careeee..
As long as I know what am I doing..
I'm pretty sure he'll be telling everyone he sees..lameee..
I'm kiasu, but he is more..tsk tsk

Finally get to explore the port of calls..
Honestly, donno what to explore as u noe, don't really know how to appreciate the museums etc..

Chillax and buy chocolates at warnemunde, Germany..apparently it's cheap but, I have no idea..

Stockholm, Sweden..due to time constrain, just had a stroll and ate mcd on the way back ldm

Going out at st. Petersburg, Russia is crazy, super long wait for immigration..
But got some nice pictures hehe
And colleague rented a boat at nite..honestly..paid too much for it..much cheaper if go myself..cos I don't drink!

Oslo, Norway..again, just roaming around n picture here n there..

Tallin, Estonia..quiet country I supposed..again, strolling around..

Helsinki, Finland..
Makan 'chinese' buffet..
Noticed that there's actually a lot of buffet lunch promo =O

Went to eat at our ship's crown grill / steakhouse..
Food/steak was better than I imagined hehe
Super full..I think I had like 2 ppl's portion of food..

I'm feeling super fat..no exercise and eat alottttt..

Oh oh! My neighbor finally left! Both of them..praise God! I know like damn bad..
New neighbor is muchhhh cleaner than them..yayy

Heard next month onward gonna be even more tough..boo hoo

Next, le harve, France..
I believe I was here, somewhere near by..when I visited France last time..

Zeeburgge, Belgium..bought some Belgium chocolate..

Then Rotterdam, Netherlands..cold die..

And then dry dock, Hamburg, Germany!
Lagi cold..and too cold = always wanna go toilet..but here 95% of the toilet needs to pay..I guess I would have kept paying just for toilet wtc

Spend on chocolates again..damn, spent too much on that..doesn't sounds a lot in euro, but when convert..=O

Went to miniature wunderland..apparently no.1 place to visit in Hamburg..interesting n fascinating..and it's such a blessed visitation..got ffk n jio another fella randomly..
Supposed to wait more than an hour, but the cashier printed the ticket wrongly n we got to get in immediately! What more can I ask for..

Haven't been hitting the gym..only went 2-3 times hahaha
But no point la..when go n running machines r occupied..and don't have the abs machine for me to use..

Been eating too much rice pizza pasta, extra meals etc lately..gain weight jor..

Berlin visitation failed..everyone booked that day off..no more slot jorr..

2 weeks dry dock making me lazy and fat haha

Baltic season officially starts? 2.5 more months..7 cruises to go..sounds fast hor..

As much as I'm wandering around looking for sales, but the satisfaction of assisting ppl with their queries makes me happier =D

1. I didn't literally faint on day 1 n memalukan myself, but to survived
2. Got assigned to pretty nice, niceee waiter and got assistant to shadow me for my first few days if not I have no clue at all..I felt bad for them..to have me lol and have a nice 2nd waiter too
3. Got a vest from linen keeper! (Cos I don't have it which I'm supposed to have)
4. Found worship service on the dot of arrival again..

Journey 2 4/8

Isn't it bad that u just gotta keep counting the months that pass?
Means ure not enjoying?
Well I don't know..
I think I enjoyed last contract more..
Not sure if it's the people or the work..hmmm

Cruises was ok since end of last month till my early this month..
New roommate is okay too..well basically I just have a half roommate lol
New waiter is okay too..I hope..
I got to say all my waiters are pretty generous..to me at least wahaha

As I was doing embarkation for the first time, I got the chance to sell! And yes I think I sell quite a lot..the most in 3 months..good ah my waiter, Baru come got so many points Liao..

My first waiter came back Liao! But not under him jor..

Attempt to go for submarine ride, first time tak jadi, 2nd time missed it..quite disappointed but it's ok, next day another chance, finally made it! At Cozumel..
Well, bukannya cantik sangat..or maybe my expectation is not met hahaha..I tot it would b colorful xD
But ok la, at least experience..
But now I wonder if grand Cayman would be more beautiful..but taken go again..mahal la..and GC submarine more mahal also..

Wanted to do some activities..since I'm all over..like zip line, dive,sail etc..but mahal..ok, one is mahal, 2 is not enough time and also hard to find kaki..who will do these n also spend..alone pulak tak syiok..

On the day when I feel kinda pissed off, at the same time when I'm gonna finish work late, and based on the time, I'd just skip the cf..but somehow, by God's grace, I manage to finish earlier than supposed to and decided to go for the cf..and I got this randomly..
Talking bible! Seems cool but when u think u have a phone that have the app, sama je..but that's not the point lol

Now I know/feel, it's not mainly the nature of the job that I'm not enjoying, it's also the people..seriously, I think I'm too nice..which bit myself..easily feel bad for others, kills myself too..nobody cares, people are just selfish lazy and irresponsible (not all lol)..sometimes and some things I understand, even I myself does it..but some ppl just amazes me..I've got nth to say..

And feb seems to be my sick month -.-

And y must there be some 'annoying tuk ngam tuk Pei' ppl on each contract..zzz

1.5 more months to end Caribbean season!

Things to thank God so far...
1. I didn't literally faint on day 1 n memalukan myself, but to survived
2. Got assigned to pretty nice, niceee waiter and got assistant to shadow me for my first few days if not I have no clue at all..I felt bad for them..to have me lol and have a nice 2nd waiter too

Journey 2 2/8

Whoooo..another month down..
Yen Wei ROM! Missed it..but congrats! Hehe

Went to princess cays, Bahamas..private beach..
Food food food and played a little beach volleyball hehehe

Gave my gloves to colleague last time (part of uniform but I don't use it that time)..now need use jor n I don't have..didn't take back..but some kind soul gave me a pair hehe

They shud demote me..lower pangkat (my old pangkat) earn much more here..wtc

So I dropped and broke sth at my station..for the first time..
No have I tot I'd do that..since my studies, and now I'm doing it..embarrassingnya..

Got dinner off beginning of the month due to sales..Just before my waiter leaves heheh..not my credit..

And reported to medical due to a lil seasickness..omg lame..last time worse also nth, now so kua jeung..making myself look weak again zzz

So i needed to change waiter again..
And before that there are like 4-5 ppl telling me that they wanted me to be their junior..
I have no idea why..cos I'm so slow, I always give in to other ppl lol..but they say I'm ok..
So I always warn them that I'm slow if they want me haha..
Well, I donno if they wanted me cos they think I'm ok, or cos they don't want a fresh assistant..hmm..and also if they really requested me..only know 2 officially requested..
So yea, got my friend's waiter..ok lah kua hehe

Oh, and I got a negative comment..sobs..
From that big makan banyak group few cruises ago..
Part of me accept the comment, but I won't take 100% of it..I sometimes just gotta listen to what my waiter say anyway..but a matter of fact, I admit I'm slow la hahah
Anyhow these 2 months, so many not so good things happened..sigh
Kena caught doing the wrong thing few times also..suey..

Got off at Montego Bay Jamaica, grand Cayman again, conzumel Mexico and philipsburg st marteen, nassau, Roseau..hmm, few more new ports to go..
Requested to join ship tour at grand Cayman but ended up late and missed it..they didn't allow for next requested day at conzumel (a more interesting tour)..=(
Oh well, donno if next time will have the chance to go for the tours or not..
Nama busuk d..u know la how I like to jaga my name..n leaving good records..aih

At Roseau, went to tour with a passenger, bump into him twice,neither his 98 years old dad =O..felt like done a good deed..wonder if people would actually go with them, as his dad is with wheelchair..

Looks like after a while I can ignore to go out jor..donno what to do lol..

Christmas too..bingo again, and ofcos no win again haha

End of year, crazy cruise..fell down again and there goes my knee again..eve dinner was another disaster for me..aaaaa! My waiter prolly got tired of my slowness now..happy new year~ zzz

Journey 2 1/8

It's the time again where I think what have I gotten into myself again..
I guess I just need to give myself some time to adjust again..new environment, new job scope..if only I knew what I needed to do I'd b fine I think..I can't und how ppl can carry so much things..maybe I'm just weak..

Met some familiar faces..
First day, almost fainted omg..I guess due to empty stomach..
Embarrassing shyt.n I think I'm the only Malaysian, lagi need to work up to standard..
Anything u do, ppl know u, mention Malaysian means is u adi..donno good or bad stuff haha

Thank God for a good waiter, tho I felt bad for him hehe..thank God first few night got someone standby to guide me..n I feel I'm slow..
But this waiter left after 2 weeks..2 weeks for me to master everything..gah
2nd waiter was good as well n he's leaving in a week time again! New waiter again! Pray that I get a goooooooooood and permanent waiter..

My back...donno can take it mou..my wrist too..first day macam ko jor..
I think my body will really fail me in less than 9 months..soon I think..unless miracle..
My fingers, so dry n crack n hurtful..aish

First day broke a glass..and 2nd cruise slipped with a tray of glasses..kill me..but thank God only one..or maybe two glasses broke only..but my knee sakit siut..
Basically first month, pretty clumsy..

One thing bout getting tips now, don't really fancy it here..i'd rather ppl give because of me/what I did..but now, I felt like I don't really deserve it..I believe it's more of because of my waiter..I know..got money also so picky right..

Also thank God that I kenal my roommate =D but double sharing with connecting bathroom really..aih..not much freedom..
Oh, and I tot cutting short hair was a good idea, but not really..should have leave it longer abit..Aish

First crew round also kena report jor..oh my..y so strict! Zzz
First month kena so many blue blacks jorrrr..

Worship service here macam quite gangho..almost everything x2..but macam service will run till late..zzzzzz
Hope I'll really learn sth by end of contract..found such service on the dot! Again!

Got to visit few places..
Grand Cayman Georgetown, Dominican Republic Amber cove, st thomas..and tmr St. John Antigua..

Not sure if these places r for me..last time go out hunt food, now go out, all beach, drinks n souvenir shopping, which I don't shop, don't drink, don't swim lol..more like not much time for beach, and ofcos not much time for island tour YET..

Things to thank God,
1. I didn't literally faint on day 1 n memalukan myself, but to survived
2. Got assigned to pretty nice, niceee waiter and got assistant to shadow me for my first few days if not I have no clue at all..I felt bad for them..to have me lol and have a nice 2nd waiter too
3. Got a vest from linen keeper! (Cos I don't have it which I'm supposed to have)
4. Found worship service on the dot of arrival again..
5. Schedule that allows some time to go out..as u don't really get day off here unless u sell..
