Let's party!

Joanne sings... 原来你是我最想留住的幸运 原来我们和爱情曾经靠的那么近。。。

Woooo, finally, after 245689 days, we gathered again. I mean ALL OF US, and it was mad fun. Noisy, loud, funny, anyhow sing, anyhow cheer. All drunk. Goodness.

I started drinking from 12pm! Hahaha 

It was specially planned for me by Ashley. Cos I found him a good good good deal, so he wants to treat me lah. :) 


There's one super touchy uncle, I want to box him already. Walao eh. I elbowed him when he got near me then I went to sit beside Justin, asked him to save me. Then he keep staring at Justin, talk like buay song, and keep asking him to drink. Please lah uncle. You don't have mirror at home issit?
 
Seriously fuck all the men who doesn't respect women. Having money doesn't mean that you can have any woman you want. Go die please.
 

He's erm, machiam idol. The waitress hahaha keep aiming him. Aiya, it always happen. He's tall, 183, lookable and has a very good vocal. So it's normal. (He and Ashley are related, their gene is good de lor!) 

He's like my "fairytale", everyone keep trying to make us together. Hahaha but we know that we're only friends, very good friends, nothing but friends. He's an eligible bachelor. Single for the longest time cos still searching for "the one". I admire such guys who respect relationship. I trust him cos I know he won't do anything to me.

I feel bad cos I always use our photo as my Whatsapp dp to stop people from disturbing me. I'm single, but I'm not available. I don't want to waste my time on man anymore, it always turned out crap. It wasn't easy curing my own heart. I got inform him first la, and he's okay. Hahaha (Not okay also bo bian, lol!) Let's go Maldives! Before it vanishes! Woohoo! 我要去!!! Book and go! Yeah! 

 


I've known all these friends since 17 years old. To them, I'm one 傻妹, always blur blur. Lol! They know me very well. My words can be very harsh cos I'm very straight forward, but I'm harmless. And if I really want to help you, I help without expecting any returns.

I just helped a Sec sch friend to sell his car at a price nobody expect, $4k above market value. (It was a very fast deal. I posted on Thursday evening, next morning got buyer liao, in full cash and he wanted to take the car immediately. My friend was kinda shock, unprepared.) I could have earn but I don't want. I linked them up and asked them to liaise between themselves. Sorry, I don't see the need to earn from everyone and everything.

 
Haha I'm gonna turn into a fatty soon, with all the treats from friends.
 
To most dealers, I've attitude problem. Becos I don't wish to entertain nonsense. They're not my friends, they're just working partners. I only "enjoy" with my friends. If they want to meet me regarding work, please do it during working hours. After that, I no entertain. Don't bother asking me out for dinner, drinking etc. I will not go.

This is something I made myself very clear when I got into car trade. I'm not interested to find a r/s with dealers, neither have anything to do with them. I don't sleep around, and don't play with feelings. Unless it's about work, if not, stay away from me.

"Saving" Whatsapp Audio

OMFG! I've been figuring out how to save WhatsApp Audio for many hours. Apparently, no one seems to know. Sam asked me "don't delete the chat" lor. LOL

Tried all ways and means I found online, but to no avail. So I came up with this brilliant idea... HAHAHA


 
I turned on WhatsApp on my computer and recorded it with my phone. OMG. Why am I so smart!!! LOLOLOL

Ahhh, no leh, I didn't sing it for him. It was playing in the car and I was just being random. But I think he was quite impressed. WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER HOR.

He tried dating me many times but I asked him not to target me. I'm scared. Friend friend ok lah. Aiya many people like to disturb me when they have nothing to do. TMD

UNDERSTAND

 
 
 
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
 


真心话


I helped him to make a perfect arrangement so that he won't need to go car-less for a day. Met him and his baby girl at the place he handover his old car, picked his wife and son, went for lunch together, sent them home cos his car not ready yet and I've another viewing. (Initial plan was to send them to collect the car de, but there was a little delay.) 


My very steady blog reader! I like her character, 有什么, 讲什么, 没心机! See you again soon! :) 

All my happy customers! I hope their cars don't give them any issue and have a safe ride always. Keep in touch! Call me if you all need any help! ^^ 

 
It takes a little intelligence, some luck and ALOT of efforts to show result. I'm really lucky with all the helps rendered from all sources. Thank you everyone! :) But, can close or not is another issue lah. JIAYOU!!!

I want to repeat myself again. There is only one me. You can't be another me. You can have him all you want now, so stop stalking my blog and copying me. It's damn annoying. Lead your own life, while I lead my own. Don't drag me into your dramatic life again. Somebody please teach me how the fuck do I block someone out from my blog?  

Of cos, I've my downtime too. But ah, I seldom complain. I'll usually brush it aside. I kena my first red light after driving for 14 years, and I don't even know until I received letter yesterday. First time kena point deduction too. There goes my additional 5% NCD.

Just a little token!

Everytime I sell a car, the thing I worry most is... LOAN. Cos deal might be cancelled if customer has to top up too much. Not everyone can afford to top up. Haiz

Let's just hope every deal will go through smoothly. And everyone will be happy! It's really not about the money sometimes. But more about the disappointment. Everyone will be affected! 



New batch of gifts just arrived. God knows why I love to buy all these so much. I love gifting people! I love buying food for people! Lol

Just a little token from me, to thank people for their trust and support! :)

Met up for car viewing with a very direct (just like me sia) and cute blog reader today! She's really like me. Like, buy, no hassle.

My mentality is like, "Hey, life is short! Good thing/deal/car/people don't wait for you. If like, just grab. Cos you might not find another one you like so much. And end up settling for anyone." 

How many people are lidat? I don't wish to have anymore regrets in life. I don't even know when I will die. 

I've another appointment with another blog reader tomorrow. Early noon doing handover of the Lexus IS250 I sold last evening. Fastest deal ever. 

I've attained the highest level of selling cars...
 

Sell until people want to marry me! LOLOL 
 

Wahahahahaha this fatty Meimei is soooooo funny. I noticed one "or ki" (mole) on her face, so I asked why is there such a big "or ki". She said, "No lah, it's not or ki, it's makeup, cos I want to be Harley Quinn." (God knows who is Harley Quinn, she said is joker's gf!) 

Then I said I want to take a photo of her. She said, "wait wait wait, I go wear my Harley Quinn suit first!" 

LOLOL

I went to google about Harley Quinn and asked her where's the or ki, don't have leh. 

She replied, "Oh fine, I'll clean away the or ki." 

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WHY IS SHE SO FUNNY?!!

What have I been missing out?

Looking through past posts on my IG makes me feel that I've been missing out so much for the past 1-2 years. My life used to be so "colourful" and exciting. I kinda miss being a real part-time blogger and attending events...





Eh no, I'm not an active IG user anymore. 

I was being pampered with lots of beauty products, beauty treatments (getting paid to go somemore), food tasting, new product launch invitations etc. I wonder if it's a wrong choice to give up (real) blogging for someone? He didn't like it. (I've learnt not to give up my passion and myself for anyone, anymore.)

And it's too late for me to restart it all over again now. It's okay. I believe God has a better plan for me! :) 


Anyway, I'm still quite lucky to be blessed with good friends! Thank you Justin for all these amazing products! I've been using their moisturiser given by him last time! It's good! I believe many people know about Jeunesse becos when I posted on FB, all the comments were so positive! 
 

If you wish to try the miracle of Jeunesse too, feel free to contact Justin @ 91918070! (Tell him Joanne intro one, see can get some discount or not! LOL) You won't regret! :) Becos I didn't, just like all of them above. I think the price is quite reasonable and affordable as well.

Just for laugh!

Wahahahahahaha fuck! This uncle (He's not that old, 1981 I think? But he seems old.) is so funny......... I wonder which dinosaur era he comes from???


We were discussing about work. I replied "I uds". He left a voice msg in a very serious innocent tone, "UDS (I heard it as UPS) issit a transport company ah? Something like DHL?" I was wondering why he suddenly asked me that, but I didn't bother to think much so I just replied "yah". 

On the same night...
 




Laugh die me! I seriously think he's a dinosaur. No wonder he's still single, sibei outdated! He doesn't know all the short forms. We got age gap. LOLOL

I treat everyone the same!


I think God is paying me back bit by bit now. Heehee! I'm blessed. 

Unbelievable things do happen. 

Carousell uncle really turned up to pay deposit at 9+am yesterday. And you know, he really trust me. He told the saleman, he trust me, not him, lol. For someone who has not met me before, who don't know me at all, it's unbelievable for the trust. But, thank you. I'll fight for the best deal for him, even if I don't earn a single cent. I hope his deal go through smoothly! *pray* 
 

Becos I might have chance to close 5-6 Vezel or Shuttle at once. *pray again*

It's irony how those not very well to do people know that you're earning referral fee from their deal but gladly let you earn becos they understand that you need to make a living too, and you deserved it for the services you provide. While those richer ones are CCB niao, not all though. I'm saying in general, not pin pointing anyone.

They niao until they want to squeeze dry every bit from everyone. They think that people shouldn't earn their money at all. "Steady" this word is never in their dictionary. Breaking their promise and agreement by saving $100, they also happy. But they didn't know that they lose their own credibility, in a way. 
 
If I didn't fight for you, you will not know what you can get. Do you think they will volunteerily offer you all the things and earn lesser? Ha! Some people are just not appreciative. You meant well to protect them to get a fair deal, and ended up, they "threatened" you with counter offers.
 
These type of people ah, sure kena carrot more one, becos they think they're damn smart. Dealers are not stupid. You think you know them? Think again.

Hate those sour grape dealers who "counter offer" after people signed agreement. Why didn't they offer it before you buy? So low class to do business lidat! No ability to find your own customer? 

Sorry hor, I'm this direct and straight forward towards everyone. I don't care who you are. But I'm certainly NOT unreasonable. 
 

Hahahahaha I see his contact name I wanna laugh. He loves his company so much that he has been non stop advertising for them since day 1. He kena scolded by me the first time we contact. That's why he 领教过! LOLOL
 
I'm just a woman with character. I don't like to compare and compete. And most of the time, I'm living in my own world, doing my own things. Good becos I don't waste my time on nonsense and be a bimbo. Bad cos I trusted wrong people too much, and get cheated easily. 

But you know, lessons and experiences made people learn. So I'm still thankful to the wrong people in my life, becos they made me learn.

The One & Only, Joanne!

Many asked me which company am I from when I intro myself as a broker, agent or whatever. I'm not with any. I'm a freelance. I work for myself. 

O'rite, I work differently from others. In fact, I don't think anyone work this way, I invented it myself. LOL

I don't tell people what cars I have when they asked. I asked what car they want instead. And if they have no idea, just tell me their requirements and I'll intro cars from there. (Actually, many people have no idea what they want! Most are worried about budget! Let me help you to do some financial planning, and find you a good car that fits into your budget. Don't worry, you don't have to pay me a single cent.)

Examples:


1) This person asked me... "Any cars to intro for a $15k dp, with monthly less than $600?" So I do all the calculations and intro those cars to him lor.

Can't deny that some are just asking for fun, some are playing me out. But it's okay. When there's an enquiry means there's a chance. I'll always keep trying. 

2) Esther intro-ed her customer to me. 


I intro-ed one VW Jetta to her and we're going for viewing later. Hope can close! Closed liao! :) She doesn't want to top up more than $10K, I think she ended up topping about $8K? She's very happy cos I managed to get her a high trade in price.

Erm, she's one of the many people who is very skeptic about dealers cos she kena cheated before. But she trusted me becos of what Esther told her. Yes. I'll hold responsiblity if dealer refused. It's not becos I'm very free or rich hor. It's becos I'm a woman of my word.

If you're unsure whether a certain company can be trusted or not, ASK ME!!! I'll tell you who are on my blacklisted list and why I blacklist them!


I will never intro problematic cars unless they come with warranty and I know the car is okay. If you're worried, I'm even more worried than you. Lol 

When I was there this afternoon, one uncle from Carousell called me. I'm very doubtful about selling cars on Carousell, I just started posting 3 days ago. I think many people are only asking for fun and will put aeroplane one. This uncle wanna buy 3 Vezels for his Grab business (today is the 2nd time he called, to make appointment) and also changing his personal Civic, asked me to intro car to him. I do some calculations based on his requirements and intro-ed him one 2012 Elantra from this dealer lor. He confirmed on the spot, tomorrow morning going to pay deposit liao. (He even sent me his IC sia, I don't think anyone will play so big right?) Wah, this is seriously irony. I sold a car over Carousell and phone within 15 mins to someone I don't know! LOL (Hur, uncle is very nice, he just called me, wanna intro his friend to buy car from me!)

3) Customers asked me to lookout for car for them, once have, inform them. Either certain brand/model, or just any low depre cars. So when I have any, I'll inform them, and see if they are interested. 

Lately, a boss gave me quite a number of very low depre cars. They took in trade in and gave me a good price (like really very very good, super low margin), cos they know I've customers. Even before the cars handover, I've already found buyers reserving the cars. (I hope I can close them!)

Why such good price?

They don't lose anything at all. They don't have to worry about losing monthly depre if I can sell them immediately, thus low margin is okay for them. Low profit, but high volume. 1 in, 1 out. No car will be stuck.

Volume VS Profit. Depends on how one do their business. For me ah, I'll rather earn lesser than getting stuck. There's no risk and you don't lose any money.


Most most most importantly, I don't wait for customer, I find customer instead. And I'm really on the ball, twist and turn whichever way it works. 


I'm supposed to buy his van, direct owner cos I've buyers. But I ended up making him tempted over my Merc C200 instead. He "reserved" it liao, waiting for the car to handover only. 

Yesterday, I closed one Harrier. I just gotta know the customer on Monday, it's my friend's friend. We went out together. I was looking at my new namecard's artwork and he was standing beside me... 


Here's how it looks like! Nice? 

Being the very Aunty and 38 me, I showed him & asked if its nice? (Apparently, we didn't do any proper intro, so he didn't know what am I working as before seeing the namecard!) He saw and told me he wanna change car, new car, Harrier! Just nice I've one silver ready stock at low price on hand, I pushed that all the way lor.

I don't wait one hor. I msg and ask him if he wants me to get quote for his current ride, and get him to send me his logcard the next day.


Yup, he bought it yesterday, on the spot. And he said he will intro his friends to me becos he's very happy and satisfied with the good deal! ^^


One of my very supportive blog reader who has been reading me for years. Thank you very much. I'll find you and your hubby a good car at a good price! :) 


It's not only about selling cars! I buy in cars too! As in, I helped dealers to buy in cars too! And if the price is too jialat from dealers, I'll try to find you a direct buyer. I will get quote from exporters too, for those cars scrapping soon. 

So don't worry, you will get the best price, cos I do my homework when I receive your "job". I don't simply get quote from one and just tell you the price. I ask everywhere to get the highest for you. (Today, I pushed one car from an average $62K to $65K!) 

That's the difference when you sell your car to a company who claimed to "offer you the highest". Becos unless you've already asked everywhere, you will not know what's the highest! And usually when you walk-in, they will know you're desperate to sell, and they will anyhow offer you and tell you it's the best price.

Someone told me before, "I'm a businessman, there's no best price. The more profit I earn, the more happy I am."

But I'm not a businesswoman. I'm just taking a fixed referral fee. So it doesn't affect me if I push the price up/down for you. I'm not a dealer and I'll always stand neutral. 

If I don't help my customers in any way, why should they approach me? But of cos, if customer is too much, I'll tell them off too. Aiya, just have to be fair. They do business, they cannot be losing money, else how they support rental and staffs?

Give and take. Fair deal. Happy seller, happy buyer, happy Joanne! Hee

Many dealers are trying to get me into their company now. No way. I'll not be so stupid to chiong for people and get shit in return again. If I don't protect myself, there's no one else who will protect me. I'm the way I am now, becos I learnt my lesson.

The him I know and the him others described is like completely two different person. It's scary. This feeling sucks.

Project Love Lunch

The plan for giving out goodie bags went on smoothly. However, I'm not sure if the kids learnt anything? Cos apparently, they were just having fun. Omg. They really really need to learn.



These are all I bought and prepared. A total of 61 packs, for a few blocks of low income families' kids. It don't cost a lot to make people happy. It's always about effort.




Please google about "Project Love Lunch" cos I'm lazy to explain, lol. They do it every Sat 11am at Blk 3 (and nearby blocks) Marsiling Road. It's all rental blocks; some are lonely disabled old folks, some are kids with irresponsible parents. 

Met two kids with both irresponsible parents who doesn't want to work. The kids have to collect cans to sell at night. 

Our kids are too lucky to know about all these plights. All they care is comparing how much things they have, what other parents able to give their friends etc. They never appreciate what they have. (I've one lidat at home!) 

I'm a lazy mum, I don't do everything for my kids, I don't give them whatever they want. But it's my way of making them independent. The more I do for them, the more they will rely on me. To a point when they make mistakes, they won't know how to amend, becos they think I'll always be around to solve their problems. 

Can never understand how some people only like to use their mouth to "work", open mouth and expect people to do for them? Walao eh, owe you one ah? Pekchek sia. You have work to do, people don't have meh? 

No, I wasn't brought up lidat! I'm being trained to be independent since young. I seldom see my parents cos they were busy working. I woke up by myself in the morning, showered, walked to school etc, alone. Of cos, SG were much safer in the past. 

Yes, I'll always be around for them to fall back if they met with any problems. But they have to learn to pick themselves up and fight all over again. Be responsible for their actions, and work hard to achieve what they want. I'm not going to buy them a car when they got their licence etc. No way. Go and earn it themselves. 

Raeann once told her tutor that it's okay if she don't study and don't work in future, cos her father will support her. Get my point? The more you spoon feed her, the more lazy she gets.

It's useless to be smart if you're lazy. Becos you will use it the wrong way, and only think of short cut for everything. 





A lot of kind parents brought their kids there as well. It's a good experience I must say. Received feedback that the kids were very excited to receive the goodie bags, becos they're very happy to even receive an apple. 

That's the difference. Our kids see apple like it's common everywhere. But when one kid received their bag of groceries sponsored by kind people, he asked, "is there any apple?" That's the one who has to collect cans at night. 

To be honest, they're not as heart breaking as watching joy truck, but I think they deserved better brought up.

Thankful to have people helping me with the handovers that day becos I told them I'm going to do charity. I wasn't using this as an excuse, becos it was planned long ago. They understand and asked me to count them in next time. It feels good to give good influence to people.
