BK: What’s your job like?
Pond: The first thing we do is change into our uniforms, and then we say hello to the owner downstairs. We work from 5pm to 11pm and have one day off per week. Our main job is to simply serve beer, but we also take drink and sometimes food orders. We also take the used glasses to the kitchen.
Mai: The job is like a waitress basically.
‘Tis the season for serious drinking, which means you’re more than likely to come across beer pretties like Mai, who works for Chang, and Pond, who represents Tiger, at various pubs and beer parks around town.
Picking up from 2007’s Resident Evil: Extinction, this fourth installment of Paul W.S. Anderson’s shoot ‘em up kicks into high gear with its 3D action sequences and sees Alice (Milla Jovovich) continuing her rampage of revenge on the evil Umbrella Corporation.
