Memories in Tourism^^

uuhhhh.. yesh2, i miss my memories back then when i was a front office lady. Okay, i was introduced this designation from my aunt, and i was like " emm.. can i say no?? i dont like pulling the door welcoming guests..huhu " but dad said i should took it. ba, sa ambi la..

as soon ive got it, the manager said i'll be posted in the sourvenir since teda kosong d front office.. ba, mana2 sja la sa bilang. skali da tu staff baru satu hari dia keja sana F/O.. dia resign suda, sa trus kana ampai sana la first day. and TRUST ME, F/O lady did not open the door welcoming the guest. punya banyak karaja time sa disana.. sa perna stay d office sampai jam 2 pagi sebab mau kasi balance itu daily room sales sama tu allocation dia saja.. tia pandai balance2, last2 sa antar saja tu yang tia balance sana account department hehehehe..

So, here's i wanna share my MEMORIES when i was there :)
WARNING: MIGHT BE LONG AND LONG STORY. TAKE YOUR COFFEE WITH YOU IF YOU WILLING TO READ. TQ

1st : time sa d National Park, da ba ni couple orang putih kan datang mau register, skali sa bagi la form sama dia mau isi, trus dia bilang... " Okay...." trus dia ampai tu pen dia d kaunter, trus dia bkissing sama GF.. atok, yang lama ni. Sa d dapan dia ba. ko faham2 la ba perasaan sa kan.. bertingu saja sa sama tu workmate sa.. ekeke.. GET A ROOM!

2nd : da ni guest orang putih lelaki ba kan, sama jugala, i asked him to fill the form, trus time dia mau isi sex column kan ( sex gender, FYI ).. dia b'fikir trus tingu sa.... " many times?? "

3rd : then got this two western ladies kan datang p counter trus dia tanya sa " Can you do us a favour?? pleaseee..." ko tau tu muka yang macam kucing kalau mau minta makanan tu, tu la dorang buat, trus sa tanya la pa.. skali kan, durian 3 biji ba dorang bagi hehehe.. dia cakap " please take these, we cannot stand the smell. we tried to eat but we cannot " .. FREE DURIAN!! YAY!!!




4th : time d Poring Hot Springs, da ni lelaki orang putih baru turun dari gunung, jadi i told him that we have this massage service and he want that. Then i told the uncle who do the massage to go to the tourist's chalet, Skali tia sampai 5 minit, datang balik ni uncle. i asked him why trus dia cakap.. " oo, tu orang putih tia mau lelaki, dia mau perempuan.." so, we were like.. errrr.. okay... faham2 sajala kan..



5th : Paling lucu time d atas gunung, sa kna transfer sana kan.. if you reached at the Laban Rata early than your guide, the staff there will asked your name tag number ( Eg : AA, AB, AC ) or your mountain guide name to allocate your room. so, one day, got a UK man went to our counter to register :

Cely : Your mountain guide name is Iging?
Tourist : Nooo... ( pointing his finger showing NO ).. i dont think so..
Cely : *Blur..*
Tourist : It's Igung or Nung or something like that..

Cely was LAUGHED VERY DAMN LOUD, Hiding her face under the registration table cause the uncle name was actually IGING. funny la ba kalau ko besa dingar nama tu uncle IGING sekali tiba-tiba kana cakap IGUNG.

Since my buddy tia t'control suda ketawa dia, sa sambung la cakap sama ni tourist.

Me: Ohh, sorry.. your guide kinda short ? with moustache ? and thin ?
Tourist : Ya ya, that's him.

~ trus sa nampak la c uncle Iging senyum2 d belakang tu tourist, tia sedar dia sampai suda ~

Me: Is him your guide? tunjuk c uncle.
Tourist : Ya.. Ya.. See ( pulling uncle's name tag ) THIS IS HIS NAME! MALIM GUNUNG! his second name is GUNUNG!

Patutla dia kasi jadi IGING pigi IGUNG.

Me: *smiling* NO.. that's not his name, it's his designation, his name is above it.
Tourist : O, Ok... *confused*.. Oooo, no wonder i kept calling him, " COME ON GUNUNG, WE CAN MAKE IT ".. HE NEVERRRRRR LISTEN...

LOL* he later introduced himself as Oscar.




but not every memory will be fun right, there's one thing happen that i cant never forget with this Singaporean Indian Man. We told them at the registration that they cannot check out late, at least at 12.00noon, or else, they will pay half of the room as the procuder day before. C/O time is at 10.00 am.

So, they came to check out.. at 1.30pm, It was me and Karina kerja itu masa, so Karina told him about the procedure and suddenly he got pissed and yelling at us so damn loud..

Him : Why you are asked us to pay???!!!! we've only late for hours and it's still not dawn yet!!!

Karina : Errmm... It's our procedures sir, you have to pay RM6.00 ( original RM12.00)...

Him : Go to hell your procedures! if you asked me to pay that then i have to stay there until afternoon la! cause ive paid half!!!!!

Me: If you want to stay there until 4pm, then u go la! *hold my anger*

Him: what the hell of the fucking management you have here????!!!!

~ Trust me, dia mau tumbuk suda muka kami tu masa aaaaa, trus dua kawan dia tarik dia~

Me: We're just doing our duty, it's not us who make the procedure. you wanna see our manager?

His friends : No, Sorry..Sorry...

Me: we're sorry too. I took your RM10 key deposit as the replacement for the payment la okay.

and his friends went off, i saw Karina was in tears. Uuuhh... poor her. dia tia makan lagi tu tengahari macam kana shocked ni. ksian ni... but i remembered the man's face until now, with 3 striped on his left bold head.. first time ba da guest begitu yang mau tumbuk, bagus kalau dua tiga orang saja d laban rata tu masa.. huhu I know, CUSTOMER ALWAYS RIGHT. what he said do make senses too but aku bukan manager boss!! hehe have to deal with it somehow.

Finally, before i end.. got still one story for the night... hehehehe... it was still in Mount Kinabalu. Ya, no wonder i LOVE it so very much.. hehe..

so, my buddies Eil, Cely, Utung and me deciced to go to the peak that early morning. Im not good enough in climbing but still i love to see the nicest place in the world :P. Cely and Eil one of the tough women ive ever seen, they left us meters ahead, me and Utung have to struggle to reach the peak Huhuhu

Suddenly, there were these two local mountain guides asked us if we're okay and need help. Since it's dark, (4.00 am), they didnt recognized us.. hehehee.. so, dorang pun offer la tarik kami nek atas.. ekeke.. at least terjalan laju juga kami nek atas kan.. so as a mountain guide, they have to be friendly with any tourist, tu uncle guide saturang tanya la kami..

Guide: kamu orang mana?

Us: Ermm.. orang Thailand

Guide: waaaa.. orang thailand buli cakap melayu!

Us: oo, kami orang Malaysia, tapi kami migrate d Thailand.

Guide: jadi kamu tau la ni cakap Thai??

Us: Sawadikaaaa.... Sawadikappp... Tan Sadai de reu?? ( how are you, luckily we have the book!! hahaha )

Guide:.. huiyo... untung oo kamu nek ni ari, sebab cuaca dia tia bagus ni selalu.. kmarin hujan kuat lagi ni ( HAHAHAHA... i was there uncle!!! and it's not rain! :P )

Us: Yaka? wa.. untung la kami kan.. ramai ka orang naik selalu?

Guide: uii.. ramai oo.. untung la kamu ni, bukan sembarang orang buli naik sini. (HAHAHA.. uncle2..)

trus kami berstori la sepanjang naik atas.. masi galap ba, jadi kami pigang saja la siku tu uncle sepanjang jalan, haha.. we walked until we reached this wishing pool for a break, just a few metres before the peak, and the sunrise pun naik suda that moment... terang2 suda.. Once the uncle guide turn around and look at ME.... he was shocked! and trus dia kasi lapas tangan sa ( Let go off my hand ) and say:

" Heiiiiii.. IYA MALA TIH!!!!" - ( it is you!!!! ) .."patutla sepanjang jalan tadi, sa berfikirrrr.. macam sa kanal ni suara.." sambil pigang kepala dia fikir ni hehehe..

hehehehe.. trus dia jalan naik atas kasi tinggal kami ni.. hahaha.. teda tingu2 belakang suda... terpaksa kami naik d puncak palan2.. hehe tapi thanks to Uncle Guide juga la, kalau tidak, lambat lagi kali kami sampai d wishing pool.. hehehe..

I can never forget that.. :) i went to climb again the mountain last year, and ive met him. he went to me and said.. " jadi......... macamana la tu orang thailand kita tu..."

Hahaha.. he remembered!!

wee.. there're so many2 memories ive got there.. and i wont trade anything for that and i miss the moment i have there so VERY MUCH!.. i mean, sooo very much..

i talked much here hehehe... it end here, no worries hehe.. THANKS FOR READING ANYWAY.. :)

take care!
