Aspire to Achieve Greatness

In the final days of high school over 15 years ago (gasp!) and with the dreaded SPM results looming (yes I know it sounds like forever ago), I harbored a small (& wishful) thought of maybe, just maybe and a little bit of you-never-know attitude of going to Pratt Institute in New York to study something in design (but i couldn’t draw to save my life). Yeappp, I had some mighty big dreams.

Needless to say, once reality hit (in the form of the parental (s) saying no way no how) so I chose to explore options. I picked a local college; with the provision it would be an ‘arty’ school and proceeded to bury myself in the world of Mass Communication focusing on Film&TV. Many years later, after a stint overseas and back again I finally figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life; and it has almost nothing to do with Film or TV… wish someone could have pointed it out once I finished local college..

These days not only do you still have uni / college fairs or roadshow to attend; there are career and networking fairs to help you kick-start your future in the corporate world. The one and only #graduanaspire is a highly anticipated career and networking fair; first conducted in Kuala Lumpur in 2011. When the whole idea of career networking began to take flight, GRADUAN ASPIRE extended its reach to East Malaysia (specifically Sarawak) last year. Its debut in Kuching saw more than 5,000 young ‘uns learning of the opportunities available to them, and taking into account some of the country’s leading corporations like Nestle, Shell, Alliance Bank and PETRONAS were able to secure some of Sarawak’s finest to join their organisations.

Not only is there absolutely total access to some of Malaysia’s biggest corporations and institutions, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO 2015 will be one of the most integrated career fairs of all time in Sarawak. There will be over 20 corporations from all industries; including LAFARGE, NAIM, INTEL, PRESS METAL, BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO and so many more. Seriously, such greatness is NOT TO BE MISSED!

TBB9: the Raya edition

I actually pinched myself the other day because it officially hit me, my next bazaar will be the tenth bazaar!! Can you imagine? How crazy is that 🙂

Seriously, this all started because I needed to sell my stuff and grow my fledgling headband business (which by the way has ended but I still love headbands) and thebloombazaar has grown so much, it’s beyond my leaps and bounds! The people I have met, the friends I have made and most of all being part of the niche market of buyers and sellers that has made all this, an awesome journey!

Sooooo TBB9 is coming up soon, and of course we needed to try a new location. We are working with Sentral Kuching this time around and it has been great. The main reason I like Sentral is because it is the hub for land transport in Kuching. Yes I understand that some people may not come up to the 2nd floor to shop or browse, but that doesn’t mean that the passengers of all the buses will bypass our bazaar. You will be surprise at what happens at a bus terminal slash shopping mall!

Also for the first time ever, we have 65 booths (the highest to date) and we are hoping it will be a memorable event! Regardless, we are super excited because it will also be a two day event. Vendors have been asking for longer bazaars and we have been listening and here we are! Amazing times ahead 🙂

If you are interested in joining the bazaar, head on over to http://www.thebloombazaar.com to sign up or to see who is joining us 🙂 for more details you can also email us (info@treelittlewords.com)
