Eyewear Consultant.

have you ever had that exciting feeling when you would smile like a retard when you're walking, in the bus, opening the door, finding food to eat??

that happy feeling would make you feel sooooooooo good you wouldn't even mind passerby's listening to your awful singing and your horrible dancing?? well.. i did!

it was my off day on that particular thursday where I had to go to IKEA to make sure that we'd get our furniture or else we'd have to sleep on the floor and eat on the floor til it arrived.. who knows when cos my mastercard did not go through! so on that particular Thursday I got the payment settled and also the delivery date confirmed.. then being it a bad, cold summer.. I did not have the mood to shop although it was my off day.. so then I thought I would go to Kingsway for a walk since I haven't been there since I last purchased my two very cool hats..

It was that particular Thursday I passed by Lenscrafters.. I thought of just going in to look at the glasses and maybe getting a pair of glasses if it wasnt tooo expensive to start off my new semester this September.. then at the window I saw the most exciting post : Now Hiring, inquire within.

WALAUEHH!!! my face lit up and I was like jumping up and down!! (well i almost) went it and looked for the Manager, I asked what positions were available.. then I told her HOW MUCH I LOVED BEING IN AN OPTICAL SHOP. muahahhaha.. she loved me.. and I wanted to get that job right on the spot! but i had no resume with me.. so she (Michelle) told me to go in the next day at 930am just before my shift in EvelineCharles at 2pm ( oh yeah.. btw, i'm working in teh central booking center for all EvelineCharles location.. no longer in the academy.. the environment is different.. and I'm not sure whether I'd like it for the long run)

So then i went to Kingsway again the following day.. got my telephone interview, got my application forms filled in.. got my interview with the GM Michelle, and the Retail Manager Amber.. and YES!! i got the job!!

boon boon you must be soooo proud of me! i told them my manager back in Malaysia trained me both in retail and in the lab.. were they impressed!! :D Maybe you should write a reference letter for me.. so they know HOW awesome this assistant manager was.. muahahha...

so Today was my first day of Training with Lenscrafters, got a few more forms filled in.. and started my training on the computer.. learnt alot about diversity.. and how it is increasing in the world today. so the thing i learnt was : Treat others how THEY want to be treated. because the world today belongs to people from different backgrounds and not ALL people wants to be treated like how YOU want to be treated. the KEY to success!!

anyways, i learnt more about the company.. yada yada yada.. and I got a tour around the company.. they have 5 stations where the consultation of frames are done.. two stations to adjust frames.. and two pickup corners.. the manager room, locker area, staffs bathroom, staffs lounge.. and the LAB!! (boon boon I saw the gravel maker!! wooohoo!! and so the guy that brought me around, Sam, told me that we had plastic lenses and polycarbonate lenses.. ) no wonder its better than the ones in miri lah.. :)

The thing that is weird is that they don't make rimless glasses.. they have to send it off to Toronto to be made.. probably cos its polycarbonate and you get all that icky compressed plastic coming out.

well, I'm loving my new job. I'm the eyewear consultant aka frame stylist aka sales associate!


If you happen to be reading this blog and you are in Edmonton, and you need glasses.. look for me!!

my new job title.

so.. August 4th was the last day I worked as a GSR.

now I'm the call center operator... of EvelineCharles Salons & Spas.

Thought it was going to be easy.. noppppe.. not at all!

I haven't been taking any new shifts from Shaw Conference although I know I need to because I'm still in that 3 months thingy hoping to become a #1 sooon~`so I'll get more money, so I can work less hours.. wahahha..

Back to the call center, we have a new system upgraded into the whole company... and it's just driving everyone crazy because alot of merging and double bookings are made automatically by the system which is NOT supposed to be happening..

I really wonder how people create systems.. y does it have to be sooo complicated? can't we just make it easy as 123.. or xyz? its more complicated than physics or chemistry itself whereas its supposed to just be a very very simple item.

oh well, i'm sure everything's gonna be fine when I go back to work on Friday.

I'm liking the fact that I get to sit while I work in the call center though, lols... though I miss it alot out in the academy.

So happy I got to see Dana again, her and her crazy blonde hair back from NewYork. I bet it was a fantastic trip.

We're gonna have our Hudson's Thursay with Brenda, Charissa, Janet, Lisa and Cassandra tomorrow!! hopefully!!

as for our moving process, its funny how its almost 10 days of me n Doris in our new place.. but we haven't slept there AT ALL!!

still waiting for our furniture from IKEA, this is driving us nuts. oh gosh can't they just charge everything on our Visa and Mastercard and let us get down to decorating asap?

I'll need to bus all the way to South Edmonton Common again tomorrow and make sure that everything is settled. make sure that they deliver all our stuff when we're free and when they can make it.. moving aint easy~~

problems we are having with moving:

1. place too small for us to each have a full size bed, but i guess a twin would do..

2. clothes split at two places makes it crazy for me to look for clothes in the morning.

3. the blowdryer is at the new place!!!!

4. no shoes at the old house.. sometimes i have to walk to the new house to change my shoe in order to go to work with color coordinated shoes.. wahhaha..

5. haven't been doing proper cleaning.. so both places are getting dirty!!

I need to get the gym and pool access key asap so we can use facilities that they give us asap!! wooohooo!

thought of the day:

Its funny how Doris and I used to have nice long black hair, now its just gone CRAZY!!

I noticed how I always begged summer to be over cos it always made EVERYONE so hot and caused us to have only a few hours sleep.. now that it's really over :( i'm sad and scared of freezing to death.. sobs.... its getting cold again.. needa use lotion daily just so our skin wont crack and bleed like how humpty dumpty fell down from the wall and broke and died.. wadever~
