Flashback: Working in Old Trafford Stadium

Dah takde idea nak blog, so meh kita layan flashback jap....
I used to work in Old Trafford Stadium, yes, the Manchester United stadium, but as a kiosk attendant jer. But hey, it was one of the best experience I have ever had. On matchdays, I will be at the kiosk (tapi tak pernah kat box) selling food and drinks. When there's no football match I will be working at the halls in the stadium or at City stadium (asal boleh je, nak duit la katakan..). But if there's a Derby match (Manchester United vs Manchester City), I will choose stadium yang bayar lebih and normally City stadium pays more..(kemut jugak United ni)...Gambar kureng sebab pakai Nokia apa ntah tak ingatAnyway, working at the halls in the stadium, as part of MU catering staff meant more money coz they pay like 4.50 pounds per hour and I normally worked 10-11 hours (bagai nak mati ok, sebab penat). The work is sometimes bad (like setting up the tables, logistics) but sometimes not tiring like overseeing the food and dr…

Birthday Dinner in Meatworks Citta Mall

It was a carnivore’s day out on a lazy Sunday. We hunted and craved for steak, beef ribs, t-bone and fillet, even the kids were hungry for meat…So, since we are celebrating the birthday of the youngest and most powerful person in the family, the lioness suggested that we should hunt for meat to celebrate. Not just for the little one, but the birthday was for the grandma lioness, aunty lioness and the lion himself, the father of the young one.The restaurant, owned by the husband of one of our women ministers was opened in Citta Mall since August this year. Since Citta Mall is new, we decided to have Amar’s birthday dinner there with the anticipation that there will not be many people. Lets look at the restaurant first.Meatworks Citta MallInside Meatworks (Nice huh?)Further inIt has a mini supermarket!!AbangMenu book coverRib eye – as seen inside the menu book – Would you expect any different from actual food?These are some of the drinks we ordered:(Left to right) – Strawberry and Choco…

Library Shah Alam

I got to know about this library when I visited Sasana Kijang (read about it here). There was a question from a delegate on who copycat who i.e. Shah Alam library copy Sasana or vice versa. The architect who was involved in the building of Sasana resigned from Hijjaz Kasturi and you know the answer. Even though the construction of Sasana was completed first, they did not get the CF on time so Shah Alam library was opened first to the public. This new library, Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Selangor was opened to public on 22 July 2011. It has 6 floors but my current concern is more to the children's floor so that my kids can spend time here. We went to the library on a Saturday so it was a bit chaotic with kids everywhere. If you bring kids, you are only allowed to the Ground floor. So, I didn't have the opportunity to see other floors, only the kids area. Even the kids area are equipped with Mac computers. Can you get more awesome than that?..See some of my kiddos pics:Abang da…

Oh! Pokcik Garrets Popcorn KLCC

Semalam panjang kaki lagi….kali ni ke KLCC semata-mata nak gi visit Pokcik Garret yang dah lamaaa mengidam (mengidam kerr?)…Anyway, I first knew about this popcorn thru Ida’s blog….hmmmm….as I have a mild sweet tooth syndrome, I suddenly had the urge to try it even though I know at that time, sesungguhnya Pokcik Garret belum mencecahkan kaki lagi ke bumi ‘boleh’ ini…Gambar dulu sebelum Pakcik Garret datang (masa belum bukak)The first time I tasted them popcorns was from E. She was so nice. She ‘distributed’ to us, the Garrets fans (self proclaimed ya)…..I also got the tin….hehehe.Finally the day came, it opened last Friday (11/11/11) and according to sources, the line was soooo long. That’s why I waited until this week to go and have some. When I reached Garrets shop (it’s actually the old Toy ‘r’ Us), the line was like short, so me being so excited, began snapping pictures of the popcorns - but didn’t take the picture of shop :(Selections – Chicago Mix, Buttery or Plain, CheeseCorn, …

MOFEW 2011

Apakah?It's Malaysia's first Charity Online Fashion Entrepreneurs' Weekend.It was held at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (Hall 1 and 2), from 11-13 November 2011. Since Mid Valley is so near to my office, zasssss cepat jer kaki jadik panjang ke sana, together with my mates Ira and E. Dulu bila ada Lina, laju je pegi sana for Mother and Baby exhibition. Now, dah takyah nak beli barang baby so focusnya ialah membeli barang untuk diri sendiri....heheheMOFEW goodie bag (for purchases above RM50 at any booth)Of course ye, I nak tengok barang-barang Cala Qisya sebab haritu order semua dah out of stock. One of the girls from Cala Qisya (Yana) put the Maple skirt picture on Instagram (ig) and since then I have been bugging her on ig to get one of those cute Maple skirts. Yang bagusnya, she was so friendly and the best part is, she kept the skirt for me. I mean, for me? So, bila I sampai, terus tanya pasal skirt bertuah tu. It turned out to be a purple skirt and I didn't like…
