My shoulders, arms and thighs are sore like I've been in a marathon for 250kms, carrying along 2kilo dumbbells.

5th and 6th December-
Worked for two loooong days as promoters, thanks to the job, I am now 'tanned'. Errrr. 'Burnt' is the appropriate term, I think. I have eye bags like I've been carrying around 300 pounds of luggage under it. But 300 bucks is worth it after working for 26 hours on weekends, and a festival, with A LOT of uncivilized people. Trust me, you don't know even a bit of how the people were behaving.
Life's a game and it's not fair.

About this 'promoter' job, Ego and I worked for 2 days, at the Jom Heboh Festival, organised by TV3.

I stole this picture from Conscious, so mind the "cute" comment embedded on the picture, ya?

We were told that its a 10-10 job, but when we got there, boy we were duped. We worked for 13 hours, in the sun, and also in the rain, not drizzle-type, well, you get the point.

Day 1 - We were asked to hold 5 paper bags, each, and 'promote'. The paper bags were heavy, mind you, 5 products, and the strings of the paper bags didn't help much, either. Both of us clicked with 3 other promoters instantly. Helena, Amy and Nini. Helena was the one who gave us the job. This is also the day I suffered a major migraine, but I still had to work. Ego was being all dramatic with her line "I'm dying.....your friend is dying.....iIm literally dyiiiingg...". Day 1 ended wiht both of us feeling like jellyfishes and our skin color drastic change. You might even mistake us from one in another race. Okay, I'm exaggarating.

Day 2 - We were told today, we are allowed to cary around 3 bags each, thank you, finally. This was the day we found out that both Amy and Nini's boyfriends were working on our team, as the crew. I bonded with a few other people, like Elfy and this other guy-yang-aku-tak-sempat-tanya-nama-tapi-he-saw-me-betulkan-my-bra. Hahaha! Elfy's cute, but when I told that to B, he said, 'you betul ke? sampah kot, hahaha!' and his younger borther overheard, and even looked at me weird. He IS cute okay. Even Ego said so. Helena, Amy and Nini turn out the be the awesome-est people you could ask for when working. Kutuk boleh, tipu boleh, ponteng boleh, borak pun boleh. Sumpah tak tipu, diorang best. I'm going to miss working with those guys again.

Oh, I forgot to mention that B visited me both days. :) Day 1 with Tasnim, and Day 2 with his parents, which I ran and hid behind the booth and didn't come out for 10 minutes. haha!

The job was awesome overall, superbly tiring, but awesome nonetheless.
