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.
This week went by in a mad blur. It was essentially a Part 2 of our previous week, where we spent most of the working hours in a design frenzy and negotiations. However, added to this week's mix was serious sleep deprivation and sore leg muscles. We have been so busy completing and settling projects that we have officially revised our working hours to start at 7am! This means that we start and end work when the sky is dark. However, rather than being depressed, we find ourselves working with even more motivation and conviction than ever. It is a great feeling every time we successfully close projects and start working on new ones, leaving the past behind!
On the retail front, we have mighty awesome plans for 2017 so we are getting super duper pumped! This week also saw us embarking on our pop-up event marathon as we juggled back-to-back events on top of our personal lives. We will be participating in a lot more events for the remaining months of the year, so keep your eye out on the Calendar of Events page to find out more details!
Min: Oh, what a week of positive energy, happiness and great cheer! Despite my aching body and the constant battle to stay awake, I have to say that my mood is consistently good and happy all week long. I am usually a grumpy grouch so this is a huge deal for me. I have so much to thank God for this week, especially so for my mum who had just celebrated her birthday - blessed birthday mummy dearest! And to one of my childhood friends - congratulations on your sweet union and I am so happy that you guys found each other!
On to some kitty cat update, Sushi-the-cat is adapting well to the tricky trials and situations I put him through daily and I thank God for sending a almost-resilient kitty our way. It has only been 4 weeks and I can't imagine a day without him. So much love for this adorable brat! For a first time cat-mom, Sushi-the-cat leaves me baffled most of the time. There is a lot of reading up and learning on my part, but with tons of love and grace, I am sure we will create some kind of magic together! <3
Jia: Yay, I am filled with so much happiness this week. Even though I am totally sleep-deprived and zombie-walking most of my days, there is a whole lotta joy and love overflowing from my heart! There are three main things that have been making me so happy that I forget the pain from my aching legs. Speaking of aching legs, thanks a lot, barre class, for moments of pure agony whenever I am climbing down stairs and the fits of laughter that follows from the ridiculousness of the situation.
Yes, back to the three main things that I am so happy and thankful for:
1) One of our best childhood friends got married! It was a wedding filled with so much love, laughter, and colour and a day so well spent with lovely people. Congrats, Mr and Mrs K! <3
2) A new group of friends that I can trust completely with secrets. And the best part of it is their unwavering support and encouragement.
3) FaceTime with the best first friend at an ungodly hour of 5am. Time difference is terrible but the two hour catch up was fun and timely! Min finally got a home tour as well, so that was... interesting?
How was your week? Sending positive vibes your way!
With Love, Min+Jia.
