A New Mission..

for today’s entry a little diversion from the usual. I bet most of my readers out there recall about me owning a Mexican Restaurant. Basically I was not involved directly in the day to day operation and instead leave it to my 2 partners cum manager. But recently one of my partners was pulled to set up another restaurant serving ‘mamak’ food called craven café at Bukit Antarabangsa. It is also one of Mr Hubby’s recent venture.


During this phase (absent of manager) from one of my outlet, a problem surfaced. On a recent occasion, we lost a day sales money from the cashier machine itself. I only get to know about it today and so u can imagine how upset I was!! but then again after it downed on me, I started to ponder and evaluate the problem.

I believe the weakness in my management and lack of supervision is the main cause of it all. Yes I have been very laid back in managing the outlet and frankly I totally leave it 100% to my partners. After a while I even lost track of staff n cant even remember who’s who. That’s how terrible I was!! I cant totally blame the thieves from having the guts to steal from me..well hey, the manager’s not around, what more the owner n who’s taking care of the sales money?? The waitress cum temporary supervisor. And it’s not fair to blame the poor girl either. I should have played a more active role as a busy body owner and poke my nose more than necessary!

And starting from today onwards..i vowed to be more in charge and I hope my staff will be prepared to face the ‘drama queen’ with all her dramatic manor, expression and attitude included!! Nobody STEALS from me…u hear me??? NO ONE!!!
