I owe it to my readers and friends why I haven’t been dishing out content lately – it’s because I’ve finally found a job It’s in something totally new to me – though something I’ve always wanted to try: the food and beverage industry!
My cousin encouraged me to apply for this new concept shop, basing its menu on sandwiches and sides; with specialty gin & tonics served in the evening. I suppose it’s difficult to really explain it without spilling the beans, but I’ll save it for when we have our grand opening! (We’re currently in a “super soft” opening as of Wednesday!)
To make it short, I’m one of the front-of-house staff for the shop. Because the place is quite smaller than conventional restaurants and bars, the position calls for several skill sets: so I’m not just a waitstaff and cashier, I’m also a barkeep, and a sundae maker! It might sound like menial work, but everything’s interesting to me. I don’t really drink anything more than beer or alcoholic mixers, so it’s nice to learn more about gin and tonics. (We had a training day dedicated to tasting different gins.. and needless to say, I got dizzy–) It’s also nice to learn about different sandwiches and sides. And it’s nice to learn, generally!
I’ll be working on a 4pm-1am shift, which means I will most likely be posting content at unholy hours (late at night, not early in the morning hahaha). I’ll try to squeeze in some product shoots (with matching selcas, because you know me–) around midday so the lighting will still be decent.
I hope you bear with me! And I’ll be sure to make an entry about the shop when we open!
Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a lovely day. xx
