1st Day in Starbucks

Finally, I stepped over to the other side of the bar as a barista. Woohoo!! My first day in Starbucks! Wow, so many things to learn, so many people to know, so many things to see, observe and remember. This is the most exciting first day ever!

I had my first impression (introduction to the company), filled in tonnes of forms, and got a handbook (like an inch thick) which has to be completed within 28 days. Haven't done homework or assignment in years! We did coffee tasting too - Latin American House Blend ^^ Then for the on-the-job training, I got to make 3 cold beverages - vanilla latte, mango passion fruit frap, and ice blended mocha. These names are supposed to be called systematically, which I have yet to learn. And by the way, my whipped cream looked like shit but my training coach said "Ok la!" ^^ Hopefully it wont take too many shitty looking ones until I get it right.

Other than that, I had much more practical training on 'sliding' and cleaning. I was also on shift for the closing of the store - a rather challenging task as there are many tasks and details to remember. After work and mamak, I reached home at 3.30am. Ah~..reminds me of those project days where I had to do drawings till 3 or 4am. Haha. Oh and after first day at work, I got my off day tomorrow. Not bad ma. Hehe. When asked how was my first day, I said "Good!". Han, one of my training coach, says, it's a rare comment as normally people think its tiring. Hehe.

So dat's all for my first day. As far as I know, I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward for more! Goodnight ^^
