Annual Dinner Public Bank at Renaissance Hotel's the story...

last night went for part time at the Hotel Renaissance..
never expect anything actually but somehow I'm very nervous because its been awhile since my last time doing part time job at the hotel

making it short..
I set the time with my friends to be at the hotel around 3 something
so after we gather about 3-4 people
we enter the hotel back door (for staff only)
so as we walk in, give our student I/d to the security guard and replace with a part time card then we made our way to the kitchen, and walk to the place where student normally stay before the person in charge gave the order..
so once the form has been filled, my friends ask me to run...seriously RUN
because if we late getting our uniform then we shall end up with having to wear such a huge hotel uniform,I got myself M 30 size...seriously it looks Big on me and no..there's no pictures taken

because I look weird so don't want people to see me..
its really hard moving around with such a huge uniform..since my body is small
anyway, after the touch up (make up faces and nice perfume here and there)
we went to the cafeteria to get fill up our empty stomach..
hotel foods never let me down...
although its just foods for staff
well, its been totally an awesome meal which no...
there's no photos been taken too due to the shyness of my first EVER to that place...

anyway, after the awesome meal we search for the Ground Level but unfortunately of the misunderstanding part lead us to the other part of the Ground level (lost)
hahaha..anyway, once we got to the level mention..there's this small room where the In Charge person gave orders and divide the whole group to the separate table
I wrote the menu in my cute notebook so that it could help me do my report after this..
Im scared after they inform that it was a Chinese set and I somehow forgot the whole thing..
not that I didn't know a thing..its just I need to have to be under someone

so I was put under my friend Hidayah since she's in charge of the VIP table..
VIP table for the first time?? kau mampu???
so I have no choice then to accept it with an open heart that the table that I will take care is the front table to the stage...really near to the MC stand and all..
so the guest are mingle around talking, taking pictures and laughing and pleasing each other with their so improper outfits and all..
well can't say anything thou since its their party and it happen to be Chinese Set so maybe they have to wear such an outfit..

my task is to:
- Refill the Chinese Tea
-Refill the Cordial drink (which I forgot the name)*
-serve beer (tiger)
-clear dirty plates (normal using BB plate)
-top up the condiments on the table
-anything that guest ask such as they need warm water
-help Hidayah to divide the foods to the guest after she place the foods in the small bowl or in the bb plate
-do crumbing down in case if their is left overs on the table
-stand behind the guess or let say near the guess lah

so the functions begin with the public bank staffs went on the stage to be ready to perform by singing the song as to welcome the guest of honor
Tan Sri Dato' Sri Dr. Teh Hong Piow
for his Happy 81st Birthday
giler bapak grand kot
my task is to fill the Chinese cup with Chinese tea to all the customer once the customer came to the table..that is after say
"Good evening, Im Intan.. I will be your waitress for the night bla bla bla and help he/she sit down and open the napkin and place it on the guest lab..
once the guest of honor arrived the big celebration begun..
there's lots of singing, dancing...
shocking me here and there due to the improper outfits the dancers wearing..
anyway...2 artist are invited that night are Que Haidar and Linda Jasmine..
very sweet couple I tell ya..(^_^)
so after the performance...there is the performance by the hotel..which the chef cooks
(just an act)
then once he finished cooks...the MC announce the food are ready to be serve
by that time all the waiter and waitresses that serve the guest of honor went out behind the curtain and walks to the main table and serve in order...very amazing presentation..while the honor guest are delighted to see the foods...
the rest of the waitress and waitresses came out from the left and right side of the door and follow in line to their table and serve the guest..
its a smooth food presentation ever...!!!
I enjoy it too by looking at them..
from my last time I work for Chinese Set function.. I was told to walk inside the room with the light switch off and all the guest can see is the candle on each plate that we carry...and we waitress and waiter will bow in front of the guest before go to our table...
wayyyyy freakin time I tell ya..

anyway back to the story..
I again refill the Chinese tea, Drinks and BB plate as well as the performance keep on getting exciting that when the part where this guy sang Marc Anthony song "My baby you"
I was sooooooo happy to hear it that my eyes are focus at the stage and thanks to my friend she cover the job for me...huhu...shouldn't be doing that kind of thing ever... MY BAD..

anyway...I got sometime that I was so thirsty, I went at the back and drink the drinks I serve for the guest...yummy...then I get back to work..
there's 10 course meal serve that night...if Im not mistaken la
I tell ya..those plates are heavy...
my hands are like shaking every time I have to pour the drinks..

then there's a self service where the supervisor (I think)
come to us and tell us to move away from the guest because guest need to have their time with the dancing and singing thing
after the movie finish then we went back to our duties...
I had to clear up quickly to let the next course being serve..
its those time where I have to walk quickly, run sometime...and had to stand all night long
all the busy moment flies so quickly and I ask my friend what time is it and she said its almost 11.30 pm

but the best part is the event ends at that time...
and so lucky of me to get a VIP table because once the guest of honor leaves...they follow and leave the table too...
so me n Hidayah finish up the clearing of plates, goblets, high balls, bb plates and the cutleries on the table...then went for a drink before went to the office to get our bags.
all of the KLMU student fill in the form regarding the time we check in and out and place in the box provided then change cloth, and went to the security once again...get our bags examine before leaving (in case if there is something stolen)
then we wait for this guy name "Zul" to give us the money for the hard work we done...
(^_^) <-------the happy face when receive the money
RM 7 for 1 hour...
so RM50 lor..
I wait for my brother in law to come and pick me up
the view of Kl tower is sooo nice...
I felt happy althou Im very tired and my feet hurts like hell..
its a nice experience I had and hope that I can experience it again in the future...

p/s: sorry there is no pictures lor...
I don't have that time and Im afraid since its my first time working and not confident enough to take pictures here and there at new place...besides..there those "eyes" keep staring at me
wayyyyyyy creepy!
