Job at Beautiful Homes Expo

Another job update! Was going to update about this together with my previous post, but by the time I finished my previous post it's already past midnight and I want to sleep lol. So posting it now instead.

This job is more recent, I worked from 15th - 19th May.  It's an event, Beautiful Homes Expo, and it starts from 17th till 19th May. It's located at Viva Home Expo Hall.

I found out about this job on a group in Facebook, and I called to apply.
Then I got accepted weeee, along with Crystal too :D
So we're working together again.

We're told that we will be promoters, but then we start work on 15th May. The Expo starts on 17th May. Crystal and I were like, 'What will we do on the first 2 day? Don't tell me we have to help set up =A=' lol. Turns out we kinda have to, but more on that later.

On the first day of work, we took the KTM and transit to lrt.
We reached kinda early, so we just hung around the not-yet-opened mall and use their wi-fi to get online haha.

When it's time, we meet with the person in charge with us, Kelly.
We're told to go get some stuff from her car, and bring it up. 
That's when I thought that Crystal and I really are doomed, we'll be repeating the setup process like in Big Bad Wolf, which is very tiring.

We're wrong. Haha, all we ever did for setup was bring the stuff up form the carpark (just a few plastic bags containing tags and tissues) and after that, we just sit around a registration counter, sorting tags and passes, and giving them to exhibitors and contractors that came to setup their booth.
Was an easy day :D Plus Crystal and I got to walk around the mall cause we're asked to buy stuff, and buy food :3 We get to choose what food we want to eat yayyyyy xD

On the second day, Crystal's dad fetched us there. But we got there like, an hour and half earlier.
So Crystal and I took the lrt and I brought her to Central Market lolol. We just wasted our time sicne it's not opened yet. But at least Crystal got to see Central Market and the towns in KL xD

This day was pretty much the same thing as the first day, except that we had to set up a press board. We have to paste up newspaper cuttings about the expo and the advertisement for the expo. (though I don't see the point of doing that lol)

While doing all these, we had some trouble. We had to remove the cuttings from the board once because the boss want the background changed. That was when a mess happened. We forgot that the cuttings had double sided tape on them, and the damn double sided tape were strong. We accidentally stick those cuttings to each other. Damn. Good thing that it was laminated, but we still took a long time to separate  it and clean the double sided tape marks. We had to use thinner too -_-

On the third day, we took the KTM to KL Central and I ate McDonald's Breakfast. /w\
Was so delicious, I LOVE McD BREAKFAST <3 hahahhaha.="" p="">But we ended getting late around 15-20 minutes :x
But no one said anything lol. Well, maybe that was cause I already informed them we'll be late.

We start being promoter that day. We had to take the sign and stand at our given station. Mine was beside an escalator next to a BMW Road Show haha. I liked my station, because the BMW Road Show was playing awesome music, and for some reason the bass guitar sounds really obvious in all the songs. I spend my time analyzing bass lines in songs lol. And working at the same time of course xD

Then there's one time, the boss tried to find me but I wasn't there ._.
I was up at the Expo telling  the boss to contact a management because and Exhibitor told me too, but when  I went down I got lost. I got to LG instead of G, and I stupidly walked a whole round trying to find my station haha. At the same time, my boss went to my station but couldn't find me, so he went down to LG to try and find me. I saw him, and I'm like, ' shit shit shit' and then I turned the opposite direction to avoid him hahahah. Then after the boss went up again, I realized I'm on the wrong floor and ran all the way back to my station lol. When I reached, Crystal called me asking me where am I and that the boss asked her to contact me hahahahah. I told her I'm at my station, and that I knew that he was trying to find me lolol. Then the boss came to find me, but surprisingly he didn't ask any question, just asked how am I doing so far O__O
So nice haha.

Oh, and the people in Viva Home are so much friendlier than Jusco Cheras Selatan. Most of them smile and say thank you! Though none treat me Nescafe /___\ (lol)
Anyway, we had shift. Crystal and I were on the first shift, after that we went up to look after the registration counter instead. We just sit at the counter, and gives out forms to costumer to fill. Easy as that haha.

The fourth day was kinda same as the third day.Except we literally become walking signboard haha.
Crystal suggested we walk around the mall instead because that will create more attention. (Actually, standing at the same place was boring. And the boss could easily find us and see whether we're working or not. And by walking around the boss won't be able to find us and we could take more short breaks :x )

 On the last day, Crystal can't make it to work since she had to attend her University's Orientation. Kar Hao replaced her. On the last day it was more boring, because the boss wants more promoters. That means more and longer shift promoting /_\

So, I walked the whole LG, G, and 1st floor and visited every single toilet. :x

Each interior design in the toilet is different, and I went around comparing which is nicer lololol. Yep, I was bored to that point. Then I also took pictures with the other promoters cause we're all bored and we have no working mood anymore.

Daphne and me in one of the toilets. xD

In another toilet. Lol.

Then we wandered to a site where all the shops are under renovation, and we caught that Kar Hao sitting there and sleeping or playing with his phone =A=
But then...We took pictures together LOL

Hahhahaah xD

On another shift, we included Li Wen with us to take photos lol.

Three of us. lol. That was taken in another toilet. Hahaha.

And oh, during the whole duration of promoting, at least 6-7 people asked me where is Giant.
 -___-  Hello I'm not working for Giant I'm with Beautiful Homes Expo. Lol.

On the last day when it was almost time for the Expo to close, there's some problem with 2 costumers. The Expo ends at 9pm but because of the stupid matter, we had to go home around 11pm hmmmph -_- But we used the time chit chatting with each other.

I got to know the Chairman's son during that time too, actually he was there already before the expo started, but for some reason we did not talk to each other lol, maybe cause I felt he was 'little boss'?
Hahhahahahahaa. Seems funny now.

He's actually a fan on anime lol, and he's from Singapore. When someone brought up the topic of Facebook, he said we all sure can't find him, and then he show us his Facebook. He's using a Japanese name lol. I just read it out loud and he stare and me like, 'ehhhh?! how did you....'
lololol. Duh, I studied Japanese xD

That was when we started chatting haha.
Then we all added each other on Facebook and stuff. Lol.
Then I get my salary, and I leave.
That's all. Hahhahahahaha.

 Overall nice job, if I have the chance I'll surely work with them again. :)
