Work. I officially officially started working! hohoho.

The entire past week at Demsey don't count since... it didn't feel like it was work. I didn't feel responsible for the cakes I'd made, there was not even a hint of pride in it. I guess it is because the mechanised way of going about/ doing things. For example, whenever I asked questions like "Why do we do this? Why can't we do it that way instead?" I got really dumb answers, "because the in-charge does it like that" or "that's what we have always done".

haha, reminds me of this story:
For Thanksgiving dinner, the wife was preparing the turkey. Her way of preparing the turkey was so peculiar that the husband asked, " why do you always cut off the tail of the turkey?"

"Don't know. Mother always does it like that. I guess it tastes better this way."

Not giving up, the husband calls up his mother-in-law, and thus was replied, "I don't know. My mother always does it like that. I guess it gives better flavour."

This time, the husband calls up his grandmother-in-law (assuming she is still alive). He repeats the question and finally got the answer.

"Oh, it's nothing really. The oven I had was too small. I always had to cut off the last bit to fit the bird in."

Anyway, now that the kitchen at Orchard Central (OC) is ready, after many many frustrating delays, we can finally start production. Wheew!
