Frustrating Friday;

I know my beautician said I have to change my temper,
but seriously it’s impossible when there’s just so many annoyances around that increase your blood temperature. 
It’s known far and wide that “Amanda is straightforward, don’t get too offended cause bitch is just her middle name.”
So yeah, you’ve been warned,
this is a power-packed bitch post. 

So I wake up all snuggly and unwilling to get up for work on a cool Friday morning. (yay tgif right? So not)
Got to sleep in slightly later cause a fellow intern offered to pick me up in his cab the night before. 
Everything was good till I got last minute notice from him asking me to meet at his area instead to take the cab.
Like what???? 
You’re in the cab, it makes more sense for you to come to me right? Plus you offered. 
And if you wanted to make this arrangement, you should have told me the night before so I can plan my time accordingly. 
But well I was generally appeased since he did come to me in the end anyways. 
THOUGH HE BLAMED ME FOR BEING THE REASON THAT WE WERE LATE FOR OUR BREAKFAST WITH THE OTHER INTERNS. URFGH

It was quite a rushed morning as our internship teacher came to return us our interim reports.
She came despite catching the Influenza B, (hopefully it didn’t pass on to me)
I was satisfied with my grade tbh and it could have all ended nicely.
If not for someone who tried to kick up an argument on why the person who lends his report to someone should get punished in the event that the someone plagiarises his work.
His argument being, “You won’t know if that person has the intention to copy. You can just be providing guidance with your paper”
Wait, hold on for one second.
Sure, the person may be super lost in his direction while writing his report.
But that’s what the rubrics are for. 
And urm, if someone didn’t want to copy, why would they have gone through the trouble to ask you for your paper?
If you already have answers, do you honestly think one would still spend time to think of something else better than the suggested answer?
NO.
I just gave up trying to reason with someone who wouldn’t budge. 
The teacher, Mrs Yong was being extremely motherly and patient. Using the example of how she guides and teaches her kids. 
But of course he wasn’t convinced.
But who cares?
I know sometimes, I too seem snobbish. 
But I’m no where near your level. 
You think you’re so good don’t you?
Yeah we all know, you have a good command of English and you do know a fair bit. 
But you don’t have to stuff it into people’s faces all the time and correct people so rudely. 
You LAUGH when people pronounce words wrongly. 
Come on, IQ with no EQ, what good would that do?

After this, went for lunch and there was this huge mess as we were supposed to rehearse before our performance for our dept’s Xmas gathering. 
It was such a last min put-together but well we survived. 
A director praised my singing (I sang Last Christmas and it wasn’t my best. My voice screws up when it meets a mic hahhhaa)
We had a dept wide Secret Santa and this is what I got.

Sephora travel set!
Really happy with it!
My Santa must know I am such a vainpox but I love it oh-so-much!

Peperoni Pizzeria (BAD REVIEW)

I was so looking forward to dinner cause I thought it would be awesome. 
Went with 6 other PWC NP interns to Suntec city where we chilled at Smoothie king first. (first time!)
Refer below for our happy faces teehee.
We chatted, gossiped, caught up and then proceeded to Peperoni Pizzeria(Suntec City) at 7.30pm for dinner. 
It was an awful long queue and long wait. 
We only  got a seat at 8.30pm or so.
But we gave Friday evening as a benefit of doubt. 
We ordered an 21″ pizza with two flavours to share, as well as a jug of ice lemon tea. 
Pictures first before I go into bitching.

XXL PIZZA HALF SUPREMA HALF SEAFOOD
After such a long wait, we were starving and couldn’t wait to eat our pizza. 
We waited for 30 mins and then decided to ask about our order.
TO OUR HORROR, 
the lady staff, who took our order told us that we DID NOT order our pizza. 
WE WERE BEYOND PISSED because she wasn’t even sorry and pushed all the blame to us,claiming that we didn’t order cause we wanted some time to think. (what a stupid lousy excuse)

Because: 
1) Who would wait for so long in the queue, just to order a jug of ice lemon tea??
2) You didn’t repeat our order.
3) If you really thought we needed some time to decide, why didn’t you bother checking back 10-15 mins later?

This woman then happily walked out of the shop as her shift ended, WITHOUT ANY APOLOGY AT ALL.
Even the manager, did not apologise. “I’ll just make it for you now.”
The effffffing fuck.

However, I must commend this young boy (probably a temp) who was trying to be extra nice to us to make it up, what a sweetheart. 

But wells, being raging auditors were like omg this place sucks never gonna come back here again, “Let’s raise AFRs” HAHA

And seriously, they are a RESTAURANT but they don’t even have those leather sleeves to collect cash from customers. 
Money was collected by hand. 
CONTROL PROBLEM RIGHT THERE GUYS. (shit we are such audit workaholics)

Honestly didn’t wanna go into this topic but let me bring up a note that the rude lady staff and manager are foreigners.
Have they already claimed this land as their own and that they can do whatever they wish here?
Have they diluted our culture?
Do they not know the way we live? and basic manners atop of that? NOT TO MENTION BEING IN THE SERVICE INDUSTRY. 
YOU SERVE PEOPLE, NOT GIVE THEM ATTITUDE AND BLACK FACES. 
Even the local 17/18 year old boy knows better than you. 
Seriously had it. 
Don’t wanna mention the nationality of the two staff but I really hate this group of people. 
Please go somewhere else just go.


Gelare Ice Cream @ Suntec City

With a really big tummy full of fire, 
we decided to get some ice cream to cool off. 
AND BEST OF ALL, TO SATISFY WAFFLE CRAVINGS YAYYYYYYYYY.

Can’t really see the wordings here but they do have a lot of flavours! We tried cookie dough, Jamaican chocolate and something else I can’t remember. Oh, you can choose the syrup^^
Picture

3 WAFFLES FOR 7 PEOPLE HEHEH
But well, at least made a safe trip home. 
My mum was like “Please take bus back, I’ll reimburse you $1”
HAHAH she thinks its really unsafe at night. 

Was glad Friday was over, so that it couldn’t screw up any further.
