Working in hotel is amazing, remarkable & amusing

I’d like to tell you guys that today is the first month I’m working in hotel. I feel blissful and miserable at the same time. Why I said “miserable”, because it’s difficult to pray while you are in full of activity. A lot of time for pray were skipped. I have to put out of sight for pray even for 5 minutes.

I became GRO (Guest Relation Officer) in 4 stars’ hotel at Hayam Wuruk Jakarta. I was astonished when they mailed me about my position. I don’t have experience at those position and a lot of question came to my head. When I looked back, after final interview with General Manager. He told me that I suitable for GRO.

56 days in Pare-Kediri – Day 35-51: They broke my laptop

In the previous post, I said that I can write whether use phone or tablet but in Pare is different story. My phone doesn’t get good network and my tablet too. It’s complete torture. I’ll see the brighter side, my roomies are trying their best to clean up the mess have made, they’re known that I had a blog and they were try the best to fix my laptop. The nearest service centre in Kediri is taking an hour by motorcycle. Don’t you remember Pare is far from everywhere?
