I got a job as a waitress at Gudang Rottie, woohoo! I finally share the same occupation with Rachel Green, from F.R.I.E.N.D.S., and Ayuzawa Misaki, from Kaichou wa Maid-sama, and I couldn't be happier!
I started on Saturday. With a big grin on my face and a tied-up hair, I greet the customers welcome and serve food and beverages. Still with a big grin on my face, that made me look as if I was a pedophile serial killer, I wrap buns and swiped the floor. I also organized the wrapped buns on the shelves accordingly, based on the flavor of the buns, and mopped the floor. I've always thought that a waitress' job was only to hand out orders to customers, but it turned out that waitressing is a lot more than that, and I love it!

On my first day at work, I managed to make friends with the other Gudang Rottie workers. There were two other waitresses, one of them is the head waitress and the other one is a newbie waitress like me. Sherry is the head waitress of Gudang Rottie, a plump friendly fellow who taught me bits and bots about being a waitress. Venna, on the other hand, is a fellow newbie waitress who just started to work a week earlier. Both of them are really kind and willing to teach me the proper way to wrap Blueberry Flower Buns and bread loaves.

There are three baristas at Gudang Rottie and those guys can sure make awesome latte arts. Ichsan, Fandy, and Rizky are their names and they were very nice to me on my first day of work. They even taught me how to decorate cakes, how to drink Espresso, machines that baristas use to make drinks, and how to serve drinks to the customer. I'm planning on learning how to make latte art with them next week.

The chefs at Gudang Rottie, Rangga and Umar, were also very nice. They let me observe their cooking techniques and they even let me tasted their delicious food. Rangga once made this delicious spicy and sweet sauce that was going to be applied on steaks and ribs. Working at Gudang Rottie definitely makes me feel like as if I have a VIP access to just about everything related to food and beverages that are being made in the restaurant. Talk about the ultimate bliss!

Despite the fact that I have been working for merely a couple of days, I had fun and learned so much already. I still have a lot of things that need to be learned though, including how to make latte art, that's why I'm pretty excited and can't wait for Friday to come. If you happen to be free and feel the need to have a sip of coffee, why don't you bring yourself a book and come to Gudang Rottie. Cakes, buns, grilled food, blended drinks, friendly services, we have it all right here at Gudang Rottie!
