No more holiday!

Tomorrow is Labour Day, Friday would be my official working day!

That means, today is the "last day" of violet's private holiday. LOL! I slept at 5am last night, woke up at 1030am. It's not that I reluctant to sleep...It was my brain, it didn't allow me to rest early!

"I'm not sleepy, I sleep at 245am everyday!"

"Still early, you are 45 minutes from bed...go on go on, the TV show is nice!"

"Don't sleep first, once you start to work, you will need to sleep at 12am everyday!"

"I'm not sleepy...let me finish the...(I can't tell you now, I will let you know what I've been doing for the whole night!)"

"Sigh...actually I'm not sleepy. But my dad will get out from his bed at 6am, he wouldn't happy to see me spending my bedtime in the living room
Alright! Time to ZZZ"

I wanted to get up at 2pm, but somehow I woke up at 1030am...

(-_-")... ......

So sad, I will not have the chance to wake up at 2pm anymore :(
Unless on Sunday
SUNDAYs are pak tor day

Happy Labour Day!

I shall sleep early today, tomorrow would be a long long day...we have a 1-day trip with Kevin and his staff. Violet needs to get up at 6am ;)

My super headache thesis- part 3

I didn't give up after so many NO NO NO NO NO from tonnes of hotels, finally I decided to some sort of "giving up" after I contacted the hotel which recommended by Mr Anand.

I was extremely disappointed!

Well, I still need to thank Mr. Anand, because he really tried to help me. The only thing is...the F&B director (of that hotel) Mr XXX that my college principal and Mr Anand know is unable to help. No...I should say, he is willing to help, but he said I can only interview his managers and take photos in the hotel, basically everything but NO questionnaires in the whole process.

What the heck?
What is the point?

At first his attitude was good, after I told him about my inquiry, his tone of voice changed, he started to be impatient.

"No no no, you can't do this. You shouldn't approach our guests. You see, I don't think there are any hotels allow students to do questionnaires in the hotels. No you just can't do this."

I was glad we were talking on the phone, at least I don't have to force myself to smile at him. I forgave him, maybe he just argued with his wife last night, that's why his mood was bad.

Mr Anand was surprised to know his friend, Mr XXX didn't offer his help, anyway, Mr Anand suggested me to do the questionnaires in a hospital.


I didn't want to change the topic...I've prepared everything. But seriously I really need to find an alternative, I cannot just wait and die.

I should try hospitals...
Hmmm...wait, why didn't I choose restaurants instead?!

I can do questionnaires in restaurants right? It's hospitality industry!



Right now, I should focus on restaurants or hospitals.
By the way, I'm not giving up hotels too ;)

All the best Violet!

Happy Birthday, Papa!

Today is my dad's birthday, we didn't buy cake, because mum said in Lunar Calendar (this year), today isn't a good day for birthday celebration. So we will celebrate his birthday on 1st of May, my dad's lunar birthday. By the way, 1st of May is also Labour day, mum and dad will go for a one day trip in Ipoh, we are not sure if they are able to make it home on time. Well, we will see by then :)

These are the photos I took today, we have a baby visitor, Hue Ru

The dreaming /sweet girl and my funny dad :P

This is the present Joan and I bought for dad :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my beloved papa! :D

My super headache thesis- part 2

Mr Anand got back to me today, he asked if I'm OK with a 4-star hotel.
Of course I wouldn't mind, in fact that was my initial intention, right? :D

He promised to give me the contact of the respective hotel tomorrow...well, I hope he wouldn't say:

"I'm so sorry, they refused my application!"

That would be disastrous :(

Anyway, my ex-classmate's daddy is the General Manager of a 5 star hotel in Putrajaya, I met him in college few weeks ago. He offered me to do my research in his dad's hotel, but unfortunately I didn't know finding a hotel is SO TOUGH! If I knew it, I won't bother it's a 4 or 5 star hotel. What's worst? I don't have his mobile number! :(

I put all of my hopes on Mr. Anand now, if he couldn't help, I will jump off from my balcony! :P

My super headache thesis!


I thought finding a hotel to do survey is pretty easy, but well in fact...

I called so many hotels,
all said the same thing

"I'm sorry but I think it's quite impossible..."
Because, I might interrupt their service performance/service delivery! :(

I really understand why they do not encourage students or anybody to conduct survey in their hotels, because if I were the hotel owner, I don't think I allow people to do surveys in my hotel too. Guests may not like the idea, may find it's disturbing.

But right now, I'm super headache!

How am I going to complete my thesis?!

I called my thesis supervisor Mr Kumar, he said I should try another industry...when I asked for his opinion, he said I need to figure it out myself. Gosh! I'm only asking for opinions. Alright, now I know why other students are... forget about it, I don't want to do all these backstabbing stuff.

Then I called my module facilitator Mr Anand, so kind of him, he said he is going to a 5 star hotel (not going to reveal the name here) tonight, and he will ask if they could help me. Seriously I am not sure if the hotel can help, but then...Mr. Anand's effort is very much appreciated!

I'm not optimistic, but I'm hopeful...I really hope the hotel could help :((

I'm really's not as easy as I thought

Genting Highlands, Day 3

My Day 3 in Genting

Packed and prepare to leave

Sigh...why he has got so many calls everyday?

He just woke up...
His red nose is cute :P

Time to say goodbye to our nice room...

It's not safe even if your bathroom door is locked, because..
The closet is connected to the bathroom!
Cool huh? Hahaha ^^

After check out, we dined in Hainan Kitchen again
I'm not giving up until I meet my dream chicken chop, the 1st day chicken chop wasn't what I want!

This time, I ordered Mushroom sauce to go with my chicken chop. Although I know mushroom sauce shouldn't be in RED color, however, who knows?
15 minutes later..

I was terribly WRONG!
It proved mushroom sauce isn't RED color, and it wasn't what I wanted...
Anyway, it looks good

Alright, it's quite delicious...
BUT I still prefer the RED sauce chicken chop! :(

Black pepper and mushroom sauce, I tried both.
Non of them are the sauce that I wanted. I called the captain

"The chicken chop that I tried last year wasn't like this, I remember the sauce was red color and tasted yummier than black pepper and mushroom sauce"

"Ooh...that's Barbecue sauce, the chef changed the now we only serve 2 types of gravy for chicken chop"

Is the barbecue gravy served with pork chop is the same gravy which went with chicken chop previously?"


"Okay...Can I order another set of chicken chop with barbecue sauce?"

"Hmmm...I'm sorry, I think it's impossible because it's not on the menu..."

"CANNOT?! Ooh pleaseee, I miss that chicken chop very much.."

"Alright, maybe I can request from the kitchen when the restaurant traffic isn't peak, I hope the chef will not mind..."

"Thank you so much! Can I order a set now?"

"Ooh, the kitchen is busy right now, it's lunch time...tea time should be fine"

(-_-")... ......

Okay, now I know what to do next time.
I will order a set of pork chop and a set of chicken chop, and request them to serve the sauces and meats separately (gravy in bowls). So I can dip my chicken chop with barbecue sauce and... I will have my very own hainanese chicken chop! GOOD IDEA! :D
Problem solved ;)

Kevin's Hainanese chicken rice

While we were half-way digesting our foods, I saw somebody that I know
Nicholas! A student from SEGi College, well, I was a course consultant in SEGi College ;)
He was with his friends, they are d*mned humorous... When I approached Nicholas for a photo, his friends encouraged him to stand on the tips of his toes, muahahaha

Right after we stepped out from the mall, we realised Mr. Raining-Heavily was kidding with us for once again. The outdoor theme park was closed due to heavy rain, I couldn't describe my disappointment :(

Back to the mall
Random photos

Snow World
We didn't get in, because
1. I'm not wearing covered shoes
2. I'm wearing shortskirt

Rain stopped at 230pm, it was too late for theme park.
Going home

Ewwww, we saw a police car on the way down
Guess where they were heading to?

Hahaha, I almost forget, police officers are human beings, they need to pray too :D

The first place we went after coming down from Genting was...Imbi Plaza
Kevin needed 3 printers for his and his dad's office

After that, we dine in OldTown Kopitiam in Low Yat Plaza
The service attitude of one of the waitresses was horrible!
She just dumped a pencil and a paper to us, hinted us to write down what we want to order (didn't even bother to use her mouth to ask!) How rude! Come on, what for we pay 10% of service tax to you?
I should have complained to her superior about her service attitude, but I was tired, after spending whole day walking and walking.
Anyway, their foods are not bad, after all they have so many branches in Malaysia.

Nasi Lemak special

Homemade sticky rice
Not really nice..

After dinner, we went to 1 Utama
We shopped for my working clothes (Talking about shopping, my tired and sleepy bugs were all disappeared. LOL!)

Tea time again! ^^
Seed Cafe

Homemade durian ice cream?!
Sold out! :(

Waiting for my...desserts ;)

My strawberry cheese cake...YUM! ^^

(looks like cappuccino)

Chocolate milk shake

And...a satisfied customer :P

Man in tissue mask

Alright, it's time to say bye...
Bye bye my sesame street pals!

PS: I'm working hard on my thesis, no more games :))
