pre-Valentines

I didn't celebrate Valentines early, it was just another way to address 14th February. Me and my colleagues spent yesterday (until the wee hours in the morning, hence the title) cleaning the store spick and span. Heard that McD in Dataran Pahlawan also did the same thing last night. I worked the opening shift yesterday and re-arranged the POS area, the manager wiped the glass panel squeaky clean and another partner was assigned to clean all the lighting fixtures. I was reluctant to come to work early and then having to go back there at night, after closing time. But when the time comes, I was really glad - coz I didn't have to scrub the floors and wipe down the walls clean. I know how I would feel this morning if I do all that - sore all over.

I helped the others washing some of the tools (as we always do every closing shift) because they have so many things left to be washed. And then I moved on to stock up the condiments bar, before cleaning the pastry case. Bad move. My supervisor saw me cleaning it, and told me to take the heavy glass shelves out before cleaning every corner. There were a lot of crumbs hiding behind those little corners.

This morning I woke up with a sore throat and aching arms. I really need the day off today, but I can only rest tomorrow. Sigh.

If only our local restaurants could do the same .. ie scrubbing and wiping the fixtures (sweeping the floor is not enough. The oily table/chairs need to be wiped squeaky clean too using good detergents).
