#word

女人一定要有四样东西:
扬在脸上的自信、
长在心底的善良、
融进血里的骨气、
刻进命里的坚强。
 
穿得起上千的大衣,
也不嫌弃几十元的T恤,
可以小鸟依人,
也可以自力更生。
 
有你,我可以坐拥天下,
没你,我的世界依然伟大!
送给天下所有的独立而善良,
平凡而美丽的女人!
 
如果你是一个女人,
你的丈夫不优秀,
那你必须成长,
因为你没有依靠!

如果你是一个女人,
你的丈夫很优秀,
你也必须成长,
否则你无法跟上他前进的脚步!

如果你是一个女人,
你的孩子不优秀,
那你必须成长,
因为你要引领她的思想!

如果你是一个女人,
你的孩子很优秀,
你也必须成长,
因为你不能成为他的绊脚石!

如果你是一个女人,
你必须成长,
因为你要活得精彩,
才不负此生!
 
如果你是一个女人,
你必须成长,
女人赚钱不一定是责任,
但一定是尊严!!!

The morale of the story is, "woman should be independent - physically, mentally and financially." 

Full stop.

Once in a lifetime!

Never ever in my life did I think of...


Driving/sitting in a Ferarri. 

"Nothing ever becomes real 'til it is experienced."


Raeann is so super excited about it. She said its her favourite sport car. But then hor, I can tell you, the behind is small until cannot. I don't think it feels comfortable at all. 
 

HELLO CALIFORNIA! :) Ferrari was never in my "dream cars" list (since the day I got my driving licence in 2002 cos I know I don't have that kind of money), but it's nice to have such an experience.

EAC's Exclusive Lounge

Sorry, haven't been feeling well lately, which explained the lack of blogging. It's not only blogging actually, I simply have no mood for anything, at all. My Chanel bag is still inside the paper bag and it's still lying on the floor. Yup, that's how restless and lethargic I am. Overworked I think, ahahahahaha!

Anyway, the lounge is 95% ready (lacked of some display, cos I still didn't manage to find those that suits the theme, a hot drinks machine, a clock, a coffee table + magazine rack, cups & etc, already ordered, waiting for delivery), LIKE FINALLY HOR! But it's lidat de lah, slowly add in lor.

If you're on EAC's FB page, you probably have seen the short clip of the lounge.

I'm going to post photos here too! So excited! (This lounge is my heart, mind and sweat ok!)


 
 
 

"Oh yay! Our lounge is ready! Visit our workshop for your car servicing/repairs (we do diagnostic test too) and enjoy all the facilities! Bring your little ones along, we are sure they will love it here! Call 9657 3032 to book your appointment now! See you around!"

I just topped up some snacks and titbits.

Extracted from the FB's post. Booking of appointment is advisable becos we are really packed almost everyday. Tomorrow is Saturday and is supposed to be half day, but we have 5 appointments (at different timing of cos). I asked my colleague not to take in anymore appointment and push it to next week instead. That's how busy we are, but it's a good sign. Keep the cars coming in.

P/S: Servicing (ONLY) will take about 45 mins to an hour.

Reasonable price guaranteed.

Untitled!

No idea how to title this post cos I've too many things to update!!!

1)


This sms (followed by an email) came as a shock. My online "resume" was crap. All my answers were either one sentence or blank. I applied for fun lah, cos I don't think they will shortlist a 31 year old aunty leh. How ah? 我应该去吗? 

2) I've turned into a karung guni lately, everyday searching for good and cheap pre-loved office/lounge stuffs (must be in ultra good condition though). Show you my best buys from Carousell. 


Whole set $70 only and it's so comfortable! The seller is a nice chap, thanks for reserving it for me!
 

This A3 laminate machine + 50-60 pcs of laminate pouch costed only $15! Haha, I keep looking around for things to laminate!!


Brand new A4 photo frame @ 5 for $18 plus delivery to Pioneer mrt. Don't know what they earn sia. Think I better go buy more before out of stock. Cos we will need it...
 

Sample certificates for cars that went through our thorough diagnostic test (yes, we have two KTS diagnostic machines) and dealers who collaborated with us. My another boss is very serious in his checks, he even prepared a checklist lor. So if a car has this certificate from us, it means that the car has no problem. And the car is being warranted by us on it's gearbox and engine. Any repairs or replacement on these two parts will solely be covered during the warranty period. HOWEVER, servicing and (any other) repairs have to be done at our garage ONLY during the warranty period otherwise, warranty void. 

You know why? 

Becos some workshops/garages are crap. Who knows they are the one who damaged your parts and we have to be responsible for it? Is my explanation clear enough? 


Our VERY cozy (first kids-friendly garage lounge in Singapore) lounge is almost done! Customer's kids has already started playing with the toys. Haha 

The lounge is specially catered for all our customers. Even when you spend $5 to change a bulb, you can enjoy all the facilities too. 

Servicing at $68 (4L engine oil) for Asian cars and $98 (4L engine oil) promotion is still on! Book your appointment now! We provide car rental too! :)

Exclusive lounge in progress!

We have a new friend! 

 
SAY HI TO COFFEE!!!
 

Often being asked, "what are you working as?" Honestly, I've no idea. As a sustainablity project executive in LCCS, but I'm leaving soon. Sometimes an admin/accounts/HR, sometimes a salesperson (quite a failed one though), sometimes a purchaser, sometimes a marketing exec, sometimes a driver, sometimes a blogger, sometimes a bird keeper and sometimes, a painter... 
 

Whahahahahah! Who wanna employ me? I can do a lot of things ok! Wash toilet, sweep floor, wash aircon etc, 包山包海. Salary must $5k & above. Lol


Everyone in EAC is so busy. One of our sales team just gotten a big contract (congrats!), appointment for garage is very packed tomorrow and will be packed from now onwards. (Remember to book your servicing appointment early yeah?)

And I'm very very busy setting up our Exclusive Lounge! Sourcing everywhere for stuffs we need. I want to get it done asap! 


  Thanks EAC's boys for helping! 

Everyone's working real hard! 加油! Prove to those who (once) looked down on us that we can make it! We will make it! When people can't wait to watch us fall, we must stand up even stronger. Sweetest revenge in the world! 

I'm so tired now! Another long day tomorrow! Good night all!

The new EAC


Love the new EAC's office/workshop so much till I feel like going to work everyday. Hahaha 

Partly becos it's so near my house and I refused to bring my laptop home cos I don't wish to work at home and neglect the kids, but the thought of wanting to finish my work asap didn't help. 

I'm really happy that we're on the right track now. Backend almost done and lounge will be completed by next week (hopefully). 

I hope everyone will put in their utmost effort to fight for the company. When the company do well, everyone will get their deserved benefits too. 


This customer just bought his car, gotten the E&G warranty and is also our workshop's customer now! And btw, the other one is my new E&G's coll! 

There will be a welcome bbq for 4 new colls next week, sort of a mini gathering for all EAC staffs too. I planned to buy a mahjong table there, HAHAHAH! 

A place will be fun to work at, if everyone has the same goal, is self motivated, mature & responsible, mind our own business and just play our role well. 

I'm sure EAC will be a fun place to work at, with me around!!! Lolol

No, I'm just kidding. I'm very serious, organised & firm when it comes to work. And I'll whack you straight in your face, no matter who you are. I don't care if you don't like me, cos I'm just doing my job. 

I cannot stand people who make life difficult for everyone around becos of their childishness/stupidity. First time may be a mistake, second time is a choice. Nobody owed you a living and no one is indispensable.

Farewell LCCS

Tendered my resignation with LCCS today & my last day is on 31st July 2015. A sincere thank you to everyone in LCCS for the past 6 months.

It wasn't easy asking for donations and sponsorships, I've to put down all my pride to contact all my relatives and friends to/and ask for more contacts, which I'll never do so in the past cos I don't like to owe people favours. Trust me, I've never sent out so many emails before. Getting rejected is another issue.

However, I've learnt how a VWO works and how realistic the corporate world is. You can't expect anything from them unless you give them something in return, or they truly believe and support in what you're doing. 

Fund raising is a very difficult job. You have to put in a lot of hard work constantly to gain awareness, to let people know about you and what you're doing, to let people believe in you and of cos, support you. 

You can't just sit there and expect donations to flow in when you're not doing anything. To sustain a VWO, you need to have strong supporters & plenty of donations. 

I've mentioned before, doing a business in SG is very stupid due to high rental and labour fee. Overheads will be higher than revenues. (Unless you're very very famous or have plenty of funds lah!) 

How many companies have closed down during the past few years? Quite a lot I must say, due to cash flow problem. 

I hope LCCS won't face this problem and they will grow stronger as they grow older. All the best! :)

Mason Mugs Giveaway

 
Wow, this is crazy! I'm shocked by the responses! So many people love the mug huh! In fact, I love it too, that's why I bought 24 pcs at one shot and leave at a corner to rot. 

I think I'll have good business selling mugs, lolol.
 
47 participants, 8 more days till giveaway ends. I'll choose more than 2 winners if there are more than 60 participants. Winners will be chosen via Google widget, it's a fair game, no bias one hor.
 
Anyway, I'm sick again. I blamed my boss for giving me too much work, busy until cannot. 
 
But it's good to see people working towards the same goal, wanting the best for the company.
 
I'm dozing off after medication. Good night @ 6:26pm.

早知道。。。

Walao. Sometimes, being lazy is not a bad thing.

This morning, I was too "hardworking" and free, so I took photos of my MCM bag as there are buyers asking for it. Wanted to sell cos I've no use for it. I barely used it. It was kept inside wardrobe for more than a year already. Look as good as new.

While taking the photos, I spotted a small, very very very small dot on it, which is not visible at all. I gei kiang took every possible stuffs to clean it. And it became a stain now. FML FML FML

I had to sell $50 cheaper due to the stain. Or I've to bring it to color restoration at bag spa. TMD. If only I was lazier, I don't have to lose $50. WHY I SO IDIOT?! :(

Anyway...

 
I sponsored TWO customised clocks for EAC lounge and office. 美不美?
 
Already have an idea of what to do with our mini lounge, can't wait to see the final result. There will be a kids' (below 6) corner specially catered for busy parents. Do not worry about having to leave your little kids at home just becos your 2nd wife needs maintenance. You can have the best of both world now.
 
As for the wife/gf, I do understand the agony of staying in the workshop to wait. Therefore, do not worry, I'll make it very comfortable for you too! :)
 
O'rite, I'll keep you guys updated! Bring your car for servicing ok?? Promotion going on now...
