Cherry Orchard Hotel, Isle of Man

I miss IOM, all of a sudden. Kinda shocked and sad when I got wind that our college closed down due to mis-management.

During my internship, I stayed back on the island and I did my practical with Cherry Orchard hotel (along Bridson road) which is just a stone’s throw from the college.

My plan was to save enough “Sterling” to get a second-hand car (to impress girls, what else)

All in all, I can genuinely say that I enjoyed my training despite being bullied initially.

I can still vividly remember when Mr Seamus Whelan (the GM) actually asked me to draft my own testimonial upon completion of my training!

I drafted and he signed. No amendment and no questions asked. Cool guy.

Nice and condusive place to study. In fact, if there were 6 cars on the road, the locals consider its already traffic congestion!

Art of bed making

Estimated time to clean a room is approximately 30minutes. For 5 star hotels, that is.

Now, how do you know that the linens are properly tucked in? I learnt this trick when I was a housekeeping attendant with Regent hotel’s opening team (now Grand Millenium). Toss a 50c coin on to the bed and if it bounces high, you have done a good job.

If not, you have to “mitre” the side of the bed, again.

Over at my workplace, it takes about the same amount of time as I insisted of “spring clean” every single rooms.

So far, 2 floors done. 2 more to go!



Toy boy

Not me. Not me.

This year’s Miss World Malaysia is adopting “toyboy” theme. Yes, gals , go ahead and log on to

You get to “instruct” a toyboy to strip (shirt only lar) and even dance for you!

Viewer’s discretions are advised. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

p/s..You can watch via “youtube” where a guy was put on leash whilst on shopping spree with gal (i guess it was in KL)
