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)...

Anyway, 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 drinks for exhibitors...paling best sekali kalau ada job exhibition, macam career fair...I pun sibuk-sibuk kat situ (dengan uniform) tapi, kena cover-cover jugakla takut supervisor nampak, coz we were supposed to be working, not joining the crowd.

Sometimes people organise prom nite so I had to serve food (macam waiter/waitress kat Perdana Felda tu) bila bunyi lagu, gerak serentak beramai-ramai....err..gerak ke arah meja yang dijaga la...paling best, mat saleh ni suka kasi tips. Satu meja ada 10 orang, so kalau sorang kasi 1pound, mak dapat 10 pounds... woohoo!!...err..10 pounds tu banyak bukan macam RM10 kat sini yer...

There's one that I must remember, a dinner for MU staffs (not the players though), I bumped into Sir Alex Ferguson. He asked me where's the loo. I almost wanted to ask for his autograph but obviously that would be rude coz he wanted to pee. Not a good timing, plus takut supervisor nampak pulak.

I also once worked in Red Cafe and that was one of the best experiences too. [Memang takde gambar, so sad…:(]

Even though I am not a fan of United, tiba-tiba jadi peminat (tapi sekarang tak ok) sebab bangga ngan tempat kerja sendiri (poyo). I followed football development too. Bila pergi stadium lain pulak rasa tak best macam Old Trafford. Now, I don't follow football anymore like I used to. But, the memories of working there will always be in my mind.

A blast in the past, from the 80s??)…we’ll see….Jelly Bunny KLCCAt first I thought the shoes are made of real ‘jelly’. They smell exactly like jelly beans ok. Sniffing them just confirmed to my hypothesis….hihi….Silly me, I was too excited about the jelly thing and told my friends that the shoes are made of jelly…..my friends sniffed my shoes too…(sorry gals). In actual fact, the shoes are made of jelly rubber and it’s from Thailand. It is purportedly to be soft and flexible and will not cause blisters.Let’s see what they have in store:Jelly Bunny Olga BowJelly Bunny BrunaJelly Bunny LiviaTop and middle: Teresa, Bottom: DanielaJelly Bunny IsabelaLarissa and BrunaJelly Bunny…

So, apa lagi, husband treated me with food lah…heheheh…pegi jalan-jalan carik makan…So on the 5th of May, I was induced sebab kira dah overdue by 3 days…..Dr. pesan have a good breakfast and come…and so I did…I was induced at 9.30 am and gave birth at noon…agak cepat…maybe sebab kandungan dah ‘ripe’ sangat kan…sakit beranak, jangan cakap la….memang sakit gile…kira satu achievement la (for me la)…..and so, hadirlah seorang baby girl dalam hidup k…
