#throwback

Was going through my old blog (which has been deactivated now) and could not help myself but save some goodies 🙂 and some of my posts just made me cringeeeeeee! Was good (and funny) to look back at myself and my thought patterns of 2003 – 2007 🙂

(All about signs; and it was a sign to connect then and now babe!)

(There were some crazy mad times, so many burst out laughing times but most of all the times I had with you 3 were just beyond awesome!)

To all the wonderful people who influenced and gave me all the invaluable experiences (some unwanted ones) while I was navigating the treacherous roads of my 20’s; I owe you one! Love you long time 🙂

Am in the process of finalizing all the bazaars for the next 3 months and its going to be epic! Annnnnnnd although i have been trying new locations and different styles of bazaars (flea market, night market and etc) i thought mayybbbeeeee it was too good to pass up when Hills Shopping Mall wanted to collaborate again! Soo i have some big (actually its huge) news to share soon!

Since 16th September is a public holiday, what better way to spend the day! Bazaars and events and entertainment seems like the absolute fun thing to do! I’m literally back to back (well kinda almost) and will be having 2 bazaars in September! I kid you not.. Seriously need super powers!

Surprise surprise

The most annoying thing is when you are told repeatedly that “if you are late, your reservation/booking/rental will be forfeited” but when you request repeatedly for your deposit to be refunded, it doesn’t happen or takes over 4 months (true story)

Am so over being annoyed and frustrated at the different idiotic people who work in the different companies that have terrible (beyond atrocious) customer relations and service. Just once, can it be simple and straightforward and easy to get things done!! Seriously drives me up the wall!

And you know what gets me the most, for a country supposed to be 1st world.. It has 3rd world attitudes!! Grrrrrrrrr

Survival of the Fittest

Yeap I survived! It was what i called the craziest weekend of 2012 for me and truly it was a mad hectic rush of events, bazaar, dinners, work work and work! But you know what, I truly felt the fun-ness of it all! I mean true enough, a lot of time was spent driving from mall to mall, and event to event but I have to say, if its all planned well enough, it would be quite easy!

Lots of love to all the awesome 48 vendors at TBB5: Christmas Edition at Hills; for making it an absolute success, and support and love to an idea which has grown in leaps and bounds! And congratulations to Isa&Baring by Mia on their soft launch 🙂 mucho thanks for the invite 🙂 and last but not least CONGRATULATIONS kailee and Junk Shop on your grand opening! So excited for you guys!!

You have been my bouncing wall for everything under the sun, and its come to a point where i can even see your expression on Whatsapp without having to look at you 🙂 LOL!!! Heres to more and more craziness and eggy moments in life babe, cos you always need more eggy moments from me 🙂 love you muchos!

Yes ohemgee, we were in the PAPERS!!!! How totally crazy is that 🙂

P/S looking for full-timers for H.I.P, so give us a yell if you are keens!

Enlightened!

Apart from my extreme crazy life at the moment, I decided to unwind with blogging and catching up on my youtube videos. I cannot imagine not doing what I have been doing lately, but I can imagine taking a break. Funny right?

Looking forward to BKK, even though I do not eat Thai food.. Urgh.. But looking forward to exploring 🙂

Am also feeling sad and thinking about friends and family a lot. And the choices we make, who they affect, what they mean. We said goodbye to the dear dear beloved of uncle alfred & Lala, Debbie and joel who will miss their mummy so very much; she was a fantastic woman who took the meaning of graciousness and style beyond words. Aunty Gloria will always be remembered and missed. It’s funny how you remember the most random thing about her when you least expect it. Like how the Sunday before she got sick, I was admiring her nail polish colour and the fact that it matched her dress or shoes.. We will never forget you..

On that note, I dedicate this to Aunty Gloria.. May you rest in peace
