I dont noe wat is happening to me this wk! First thing i stepped into office on mon, i was bombed with an urgent orders. Boss wanted me to start work earlier as he say our main customer starts at 8am, and will start calling boss as early as 8+. Of coz if i start early, i will end early. But boss say start at 8am! I was Shit la! 8am.. means i nid wake up at 6.30am? I negiotate to abt 8.30am, but told him i will discuss wif my hb and MIL. She nid to fetch son fr me at the mrt lor. Den wen i tod MIL, she like not happy lor. She say sometimes in the mrng, she nid go to market b4 fetching my boy, so 7.45 is too early for her. Then say got this and that day where she nid to pray, so will be busy la. Hey! I'm aso very busy lor.. and I'm more tired than u now lor! >.<

On Tue & Wed, i found a lot of stupid careless mistakes that make my boss "jump at" me. I making a total mess of my work, from invoicing to accounts, all errors are resulting in loss to the company lor. And I don understand y am I so careless, with so many mistakes keep appearing out of no-where lor.

Perhaps I'm too stress up, over my office job, my small biz and also with my son. I'm tired, and has not rest sufficiently enuff to be consider awake yet. And yet Y am I not sick yet? At least wif a high fever or any virus, I can take a MC and slp thru the day wif out any disturbances. I'm really nid a break, give me a 10hr of slp? or a short vacation will be best? But these 2 doesnt work in the upcoming days. I'm jammed wif work loads and too broke to go for a short vacation.

Erm, talking abt short vacation... Ya.. i shd say i went for 1 ytd. Right after wk, i rush down immed to Woodlands checkpt & mit up wif HB to go into JB. Had a quick lunch, went to a few shops at city sq, then grab the CNY goodies (the main purpose of our trip) and rush back to Sgp. Consider short enuff? It like only 2hrs out of Sgp. But did i enjoy myself? No~! Everyting is so rush, as we had to pick son hm fr MIL, had to do laundry washing wen reach hm, so simply no time to do other shoppings in JB!

Now, beside my office wk problem, i facing problem in terms of finance. My shop has just only started and the sales wasnt too gd. Perhaps the staffs were not promoting well. Or our products r not so attractive enuff? Anyway, my partner is trying to solve the problems and is adding new nail art designs. So do come down and see if u fall in luv wif our new designs.

Finance... ya. it's my personal finance. I'm broke, digging into my miserable personal savings, & still in debts. Lots of things to buy: CNY clothes (me & son), cookies, oranges, Ang Paos, Son's bday cakes. Hai~!!!! Anyone can give me a set of lucky numbers that will bound to win the top lottery prizes? I nid cash! And wif cash i can go for holidays, a break away fr my hectic lifestyles, break fr my forever nuisances son who is always sticking to me like a "UHU-glue"!!!!

More busy days to come:
Shopping for CNY stuffs
Preparations for CNY crowds at my shop
Training for CNY crowds at my shop
Spring cleaning
Slpless nites coz by my son (which is someting i don hope or wish for!)...

Shop Opening: Shugar @ Marina Sq #02-259

My shop, Shugar has finally open at Marina Square #02-259 (near john little).

After a week of rush and stressful nites, we finally set the shop up ready for operation on 19 Jan, Sat. Official opening was 20 Jan, sun, where my family, relatives and friends came down to support us. And the promotions drew lots of customers to our shop. I try to help out much although my product knowledge is not too good. Cant blame me, i havent gone thru my training wif the franchisor. So a lot of the time, i have to ask my staffs for help instead. Lolx.

Sales for the official opening was good. At least we had the highest sales as compare to other branches in their past openings. After the event, the whole place was in a mess, and there are tons of orders for the staffs to process... They will be having a busy wks till CNY as many ple are gtg their nails before CNY.

Currently, there is an ongoing promotions for this week till 27/1/08, Sun.
First set of custom nails @ normal price.
Second set of custom nails @ 25% disc.
Third set of custom nails @ 50% disc.

Custom nails set prices are $28, $35, $45 & $55. Discount is at the lower value of the sets.

These custom nails can be placed early before CNY. So do not wait till near to CNY then order, if not the order may not rush out on time for collection.

That's all for the promotion for this week. Any future promo, i try to update in my blog.

My company website:

Hope to c u down at my shop soon!!

Release of O Lvl Results

I just rec'd a sms fr my student who wrote: "A1 for Accounts. :) "

I was puzzled by her msg. Coz now is only 24 Jan. Arent results suppose to be out end of Feb? So i asked her if the results are out today. Then I msn my sis who is online too. Now then i know O lvl results r out today. Lol.. I'm so outdated lor. Me so lousy sia!

My student did very well, or should say better than my expectation. She got >20 pts for L1R5 for her prelim, A/cs she got only B3. And her O lvl results she got 15 for L1R5 lor. She plan do Mass comm in NP, which i encourage her to go for it. She seems to like media and is good in her English, so mass comm will suit her.

Another student of mine did not do quite well. A C5 for her a/cs, which is only slight improvement. She mentioned that she now can enter into local poly, which i do hope she can get into the courses of her choice.

And so far, these are the last 2 students i've got so far. This year I have started a biz, and with a grown up baby, I guess i dont have much time to tutor others now. But then, if anyone is desparately looking for an a/cs tutor, and doesnt live too far from my hse, i may consider take up the job. Meanwhile... let me sort out the mess at my shop, hse, and office.. Haha~!

I'm so happy now.. oh.. did i mention, this is the 1st time i have a student who got A1 lor! I'm so proud of myself.. lol..
