老天爱笨小孩

🙏🏻 Let me recover before Friday!!! Cos I’m going for a birthday road trip to...!!! ☺️ Omg, entering mid life crisis soon. ℓσℓ

P/S: Intended to close the stall on Friday. Shall see how tomorrow. Becos it’s super duper mafan. Sold out cannot close early, don’t open will kena fine $200/day, everything must write in to submit for approval. 🙄 The management seriously sucks big time. Like hey, hello, it’s MY STALL, I don’t open I lose my earning, it’s my problem right?

Okay, I’m actually going into drowsy mode soon cos I just took my medicines. Have been coughing for many days and nights until I bth, visited a doc this morning.

Grateful to someone whom has been helping me to send Raeann to school for her remedial in the morning cos I'm feeling unwell, he wanted me to rest more! Honestly, without his support, TLC and help, I'd probably collapse.

Perhaps...

To me, 幸福 is, when you're sick, there's someone looking after you, throughout the night, checking out on you and your temperature every hour. Wanting you to rest more (even when not sick) and sacrificed himself, just to help you out with your stuffs & errands. Knowing how to 心疼 you when you 受委屈. And you know, he will always stand in front of you to fight out whoever bully you, even with his own friends, becos he fully understands and knows you well that you won't be so dulan for no apparent reason. Always there for you when you need him the most, no excuses. In another words, he can give you enough security and you know you can just fall back on him, he will be there to hold you, for sure.


Find the one who can handle you.


Thanks Venus Beauty for the Birthday hamper! 🤗

AND THANK YOU GOD FOR THE TWO (ONE BIG ONE SMALL) LUCKY 4D WINS IN JUNE!!!

Best birthday gift ever, considering I’m super poor now as all my $$$ has gone into NYP! I’m blessed! 😊 Don’t worry, I’ll continue to work hard! Heehee

I’ll enjoy my road trip and come back to fight (harder) again, cos the next day school reopen (for Poly) lo! 💪🏻

You may still text me @ 9008 7688 for any enquiry about cars!!! I’ll reply no matter where I am! 🤗

I ℓσνє June 2019!!! 

Till then, guys! And advanced “Sweet 21” to myself! HAHAHAHAHAHA

Coal 3606 @ NYP


Nanyang Poly Blk E
North Canteen Stall #06

Time flies!!! Coal 3606 @ NYP has been operating for 2 months already. My feeling? Tired, tired and ONLY TIRED!

No words can describe the kind of tired I’m facing, I literally work 6-7 days per week, 12-13 hours per day. Physically and mentally exhausted becos there are so many things to plan & order everyday! 

Besides that, now all the marination & recipes are done and measured by me too. It’s the omf busy until ... I keep falling sick. 😔

Then again, I’m slowly getting used to such no life routine @ NYP liao. 🤭 





Check out https://www.facebook.com/joanne.ng.4599/media_set?set=a.10157294829428760&type=3 for more photos and updates! 

I’m really thankful to all my relatives and friends whom dropped by to support and visit me every few days. Sometimes, they just suddenly pop by and surprise me! All of them knew I’m stuck there, and they miss me, I think? Hahahaha 

And I think I’ve bunch of supporters from NYP already! Haha I see their face everyday and made friends with them liao. They quite funny one. And they will also bring their friends to come and support! Thanks a lot ah boyyyssss and ah girlssss! 🤗

Elated to see people enjoying the food and telling me that it’s nice!!! My hard work paid off. From someone whom dislike and don’t know how to cook western food at all, to now, people telling me the food I prepared is good! ☺️ Уєѕ oh, everything (except the chicken wings) is prepared by me from scratch! From washing - cutting - measuring recipes - marination - cook! Pro liao lah! 


Becos I’ve a KTH 师父, whom really FORCED me to learn in a hard way. No joke, he don’t know made me cry how many times liao lor, cos he loves to give half instruction and expect me (someone whom don’t know about F&B at all) to understand, if not, he will kpkb kpkb. BTH!

Ok lah, apart from those F&B knowledge which I've gained, there's one more thing I should be happy about... I SLIMMED DOWN!!! LOL! Everyone said so, I tell them I kena tortured by NYP! Hahahaha #truestory 

But anyway, it’s gonna be over soon. I’ve found someone whom I can trust to handle the stall for me, while I go back to my passion; car trade. I’ll still be at the stall lah, but I’ll have more time to focus on car lor. ✌🏻



Yup, I'm STILL in car trade and closed a few lately. I've neglected it for the past 1-2 months cos I was too exhausted from the stall. Thanks for all the referrals! Yay! I'm coming back FT!!! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Btw, if your car is going to due soon, I can help you to sell for a higher price. Trust me, the price is really good! Or if you wish to do any loan (COE or normal or in house), I can process it for you too! ☺️

  • COE Bank Loan - 3.18%
  • Normal Loan - As low as 1.99% (Depends on which bank and loan amount!)
  • In House Loan - As low as 3.28% (Depends on loan amount and credit record!)

Just one call away - 90087688! ✌🏻

Coal 3606


Anyone here from the past CHIJ St. Nicks girls school?

If you are, you have sure heard of Aunty Meow Lang's chicken wings. For those who are not from that school, fret not, here are some infos...










It's better to pre-order the wings in advance cos they will only serve it during non peak hours. Their core is on western food...



One of their very popular item on the menu; Salmon.



Another one will be their steak.



Fish & chips



Grilled Dory Fish

If you've been following me on my FB or page, you'd have know that I'll be franchising Coal 3606 to Nanyang Poly!!! Which will start operating in mid April! 🤗

Which explained why those kitchen photos above cos I've been learning how to cook (even though I don't have to cook)... OMG, grilling fishes is the hardest!!! I just don't have the talent lah! 🤭



Any housewives or retirees wish to join me at NYP?
Pls contact 90087688 for more info!

Say really ah, entering into a new line which I'm totally not familiar with, gave me both fear and excitement. I've to learn everything from scratch all over again, at this age, lol. That's why I've been really really really busy for the past many weeks. Shag die me! 😵

It’s really irony cos I’ve never been a lover of western food (but my Raeann is). Hahahaha 


Anyway, more info will be here soon, once NYP is up and running! Btw, it’s OPEN TO PUBLIC! Do come and try cos the food is sooooo much cheaper affordable than outside (Nothing above $5 on the new menu, Chicken chop @ $2.50 if I'm not wrong?)! 😬 Guaranteed that you won’t be disappointed! 😄

M.I.A




Today I wanna touch on this topic becos its one of my greatest FEAR HATE in life. I hate hate hate hate hate people going “missing in action” on me. You know like David Cooperfield? Magic! Poof! I simply don’t understand why would people LIKE to do that? No mouth to inform? Too shy to inform? Or? 

Like seriously, how hard issit to give a short text? Take up a lot of your precious time meh? 😵

If you’re just a stranger, not even friends, I won’t be bothered too. But why would people do that to their friends? Or maybe they don’t even see me as a friend lah. They never think of how awkward it will be in future if meet again. And, how much they will be jeopardising my job by doing so. 😞

Friends doing that to u, nah, not the worst. Imagine your own husband/wife/bf/gf doing that to you... Disappeared. Mystery. No idea what happened to you? On the bed with others? Die or not yet? (NO PUN INTENDED.)

To me, such people are sooooooo fucking irresponsible. They don’t even consider the fact that ‘people are waiting for their response’ like an idiot. People trusted you. Yet you betrayed their trust lidat. So you think they will trust you again? 🖕🏻


SPARE A THOUGHT FOR OTHERS. If they were to do the same thing to you, would you be happy? If I’m the one doing it to you, after that act like nothing had happened, pretend to be very normal & expect you will just forgive and forget, lidat can ah? 

做人,做事,都要有始有终。

I didn’t study a lot, but I know how to 做人. I think that’s the basic essential ALL humans must learn - Be considerate. 

Much as I agree everyone has different ways of handling things. But the way you handle will tell a lot about you.

Maybe becos I’m TOO STEADY towards people liao, that’s why people take it for granted. 😑

A note to all my friends... good news, bad news, I’m ready to accept all with absolutely no hard feeling, but pls, don’t suka suka go M.I.A, I’ll hate you!

All within 24 hours...

I WENT VIRAL!!! Thank god it’s nothing negative. 🤭

The response is too overwhelming. No joke. I is abit ‘chua tio’ until now... It wasn’t planned or expected. 

Everything happened too fast till I didn’t have time to digest! I wasn’t prepared! 😂

TIMELINE:


Click here to watch! 

21st Sept 11am sharp. I posted one hilarious recorded video of Misshopper Boutique owner doing her usual LIVE session. I posted cos I find her so damn funny. (Wonder why nobody posted it before?) She’s so authentic, I like the way she talk. Her English is as ‘powerful’ as mine. 

I set the post to ‘public’ so my friends (FYI, I only have 618 friends in my personal account) can share share with their friends this funny video. You see har, even though I’ve 618 friends, not all 618 people like me, not all followed me, not all will bother to see/read/watch what I post de mah. 

For the first 3 hours, everything was still quite ‘normal’. 


Then at 2:29pm, when I was about to make my way to finance company to submit document for my customer, I received PM from Lerine; Misshopper Boutique owner, the lady in the video. 

She’s so friendly, omg. She thanked me for appreciating her video. 😂 We chatted abit then I gotta drive liao, so didn’t see my phone.

And it started to ‘go crazy’...

I’ve no other word to use liao. Becos I started to receive notifications EVERY SEC, literally, for almost 12 hours non-stop. More than 1500 friends request (and still counting). Friends sending me links & screenshots and tagging me everywhere. 😂

IT HAPPENED TOO FAST, TOO FURIOUS. 








And more...

My first thought was to inform Lerine, and erm, apologise to her, becos I really never never expect such a response.



Then I asked her if she needs me to remove the post, cos to be frank, I really ‘chua tio’. 😬 






Nope, it wasn’t planned. We don’t know each other (before this) at all! But maybe it’s fate lah, we exchanged contact already! Hahahaha


Within 24 hours, hitting 1 mil views. 😱😱😱 The power of social media. I seriously don’t know how to react. Lol



It’s 1.2++ mil views now. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 恭喜 Lerine & me. Even though till now I still don’t understand why am I getting viral too? The person inside the video also not me leh. I merely shared cos it’s jin funny. The focus should be her, not me! Tolong 一下, don’t add me on FB anymore cos that’s my personal FB which consist purely friends, family and relatives only.

If you want, you can “follow” or “like” my pageThank you bery much ah. 😊

人类,人累。

Read an article about Mum-shaming today... Made me recount of how many thousand times people keep telling me I should do this, I should do that, which includes keeping my marriage, for my childrens’ sake. Which I did, for 8 freaking years. I tried my best lah.

But in actual fact, does my children felt happy that I’ve done so? I’m not sure. 

My elder girl, whom was 7 years old that time, said something, and I remembered very clearly till now. Her dad kept wanting to fight for her custody and bring her away... His non-stop abuses and insults led her to say this, “Mummy I think I’ll follow him lah, if not he won’t stop scolding you & he will hit you again.” 

Those words broke my heart. I was so weak then, that I needed my 7yo to protect me, when I should be the one protecting them. 

You know how lessons and experiences made people stronger and stronger? I guess I’m trained to be. Now ah, try me, I’m not so weak anymore. 😬

Fast forward few years later, which is now, when I’m ALONE supporting myself, the house, and them, those “you should do that, you should do that” come again. And it really really make me realised, it’s impossible to have work life balance after having kids. 

I’m stuck in a dilemma of, 1) if I don’t work, where to find money? 2) if I don’t accompany my kids MORE, I’ll regret in future. 

I’ve to emphasise on the word “MORE” cos I do accompany them, but they expected more. 

I’m thinking, everyone knows they’re humans and expected to be treated fairly. Then what about me? Am I not human? Having to carry soooo much loads alone, and yet I’m expected to have more time. 

Every extra things you’re giving your kids, means you have to work extra harder. 

Like how? Teach me lor. If I don’t go out and find more customers, follow up, sales will automatically come to me ah? Won’t I be worried if I’ve no sales and can’t pay off all my stuff? Money will drop from sky huh?? 

Well, I’ve people (friends, his friends) msging me, telling me how capable I am, how am I a role model to them, blah blah. Hahaha no lor. I do breakdown too. But I always tell myself that I need to do better after every cry. And cannot be when I’m crying, I must tell people “I’m crying” mah. It’s okay to cry lah, but need to pick yourself up after that. 加油! 

Haiz... #justranting and I hope people can really stop all their “you should do this, you should do that” to all parents. Not busy enough looking after your own huh?? Why must poke into others’ business? Every parent also know that they should do this, they should do that, but not everyone has the luxury to do so.

If you think that I should do this, I should do that, can can, come and help me pay for everything plus allowance ok? Then I will do this, I will do that. 😑 

Homecook every meals? No problem. Send them to & fro school? No problem. Sit beside them to complete their hw, spelling & 听写 everyday? No problem too. I’ll have all the time what, if I don’t have to work & don’t have to rack my brain at all. 

Q&A on cutting down expenses! Once and for all! LOL

Q1) Why do you need to drive a Merc? 

A1) It’s for my work!!! I’ve to exchange car with customers always. Some customers are nice, some customers are more kiasi, which I don’t blame them. You think if I drive a cherry qq, they will allow me to take their car meh? To me, a car is just a transport. Every car is a good car as long as it don’t give problem! 

Q2) Why don’t you sell or rent out Senja? 

A2) I can’t sell yet but planning to after 5 years. Very shiong to be a house owner. 😬 As for why I didn’t rent it out, okay, cos my kids love there a lot and they finally have their own room. The only room available to rent is their room as I hacked away one room. (No intention to rent initially!) Also, I’ve no time & money for more troubles; toilet clog lah, this spoil that spoil lah.

Q3) Anymore question?

Just so you know, I’m one who think a lot. There’s a reason why I do things the way I did. Despite all, I didn’t bring any trouble to my family or anyone. I take good care of my own stuff, that’s enough. And this is precisely what I want my daughters to be, “be responsible for your own life, becos only you can help yourself.” I’m showing example ah, no meh? 

Right now, I’ve already let Raeann decide her own life at P5. She wants tuition, okay, I pay. But she has to be there on time every lesson. (I never force her to go for any tuition or enrichment anymore.) She wants to sleep late, okay, but she still has to wake up at 5:45am on school days, automatically. 

My friends were like, “Huh? 5:45am, so 可怜! Let her sleep later then u send her to school lah?” 

NO WAY. What 可怜? Got school bus must 偷笑 already lor. I used to wake up at 5:30am everyday when I was in primary school, automatically. My parents never have to wake up to wake me up at all. This is self discipline. She has to do it in future when she work too? Don’t tell me I’ve to wake her up everyday and send her to work until she’s 30+ years old ah? 

Of cos, sometimes if I’m free, and not tired, I’ll send her to her class etc. But I always tell her, this is not a routine, it’s a bonus. 

I’m training her to have my mindset (Nobody owes you anything!). And she will gets stronger after every difficulty she faced. 

Results? Not important. 
Attitude? Yes.
