Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
March is turning out to be an incredibly busy month and the total opposite of what we expected! We headed into the month thinking that March would be a relatively chill and contemplative time for business planning, After all, we only had two events and a handful of client deadlines scheduled! Instead, we picked up more impromptu events and urgent projects at the start of the month and have been rushing through the days with little time to breathe.
This week flew by so quickly that we are practically panicking! Some of the highlights of the week: we wrapped up a full day event on Wednesday, prepared and displayed our products at our new stockist, completed some exciting new designs, and made a couple of our clients very happy.
Oh yes, our products will be available at a pop-up store in a mall along Orchard Road very soon! Super psyched and we can't wait to share the details with you in the coming week :)
Min: This week zoomed by just like that and it could be stress or age or the heat wave that is clearly making me very confused. There's so much work to do, and so little time for rest and sleep. Besides work, I'm also up to my neck with wedding plans (even though it is just a simple wedding). How do other brides do it? Also, weddings are so expensive and I nearly had a heart attack after I completed 'The Wedding Budget'. Oh dear me, I better start on Project Eat-Lesser-Save-More next week!
I bought an onigiri crochet pin from Operation Overhaul last weekend and I looooooove it so much that I can't stop wearing it with every outfit. Rice is my secret lover and we have an illicit relationship. I eat so much of it that it makes my gym workout (and membership fees) feel like a complete waste of time and effort. Resisting rice is a real challenge for me and so when I say I'm on a 'no carbs' diet, I'm really dying inside. What's life without rice, chips and fries? Right? #carbsforlife #riceislife #eatrice
Jia: Who else feels a little ill, lethargic, and irritable with the maddening hot weather? It has been so warm and blazing that I have been in a daze all week. Despite daily reminders from Min and the newspapers about hydration, I have been so consumed with work that I keep forgetting to drink more water! And boo, that has resulted in painful ears and terrible skin. I am spending my Sunday having a water parade for one and praying that I will not fall sick as next week is going to be more than crazy!
On more uplifting news, I am SO excited that I can finally finish playing Pokemon X/Y because Sun/Moon is going to be launched mid-year! I am one of those weirdos who can't bear to finish a really good book or an addictive game because I will be so sad when the entertainment of choice is over. So... I have more than a couple of books and games left uncompleted until the next installment is in clear sight. I am bubbling with excitement at the thought of being glued to my Nintendo again. I foresee little sleep in the near future.
Oh, and to gamer snobs who turn their noses up at Nintendo and Pokemon: I don't care what you think (: life is too short to be a snob.
