Funny how I still ponder over if I have made the right choice for not furthering my studies. As I recalled vividly, it was an emotional struggle and dilemma for me. At times I harbored thoughts that I was segregated from my friends as most of them are preoccupied with university assignments but I didnt bother to apply earlier this year. But at the end of the day, I'm glad I didnt.
The past 3 years in Ngee Ann was an agony. Bus rides were a chore and most of my time in lectures and tutorials would be spent replying emails. If not for the wonderful teammates (jave celeste shihui effia), I wouldnt have graduated from my polytechnic.
Oh well enough of the past.. I am savoring every second of what I am going doing right now, probably the best phase of my life. Doing what you like is an enjoyment. So yep! Some mobile uploads of our humble studio office and working life yay!

Hate it when all these photos stack up and become overdue. The previous post was from Sean's dad. It's cute how his dad sends them these hilarious emails all the time.


Ever since Charlene joined us at Ohvola, I no longer have to sleep 4-5hrs a day! 3 cheers! She has been a really great help with no complaints even though we work for more than 14hrs on some days. So thankful to have her with us as well as our very supportive Mother and Max! We hope we have become more efficient now! Won't be launching a new collection anytime soon as we have been busy meeting suppliers for our very own manufactured label. Have seen some of the samples and we're really impressed. Cant wait to launch them!


Photos from Mokkie, the self proclaimed Prince of Kovan's birthday. The birthday lunch which we made everyone wait for 1hr+ before the food could be served thanks to the jam at Cte. Was feeling really bad about it as they actually prepared a cake for me and another aunt as well.

Bought the navy jacket from Zara sale the day before heh

5 Minute Management Course

Lesson 1 :
A priest offered a Nun a lift...

She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.

The priest nearly had an accident.

After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.....

The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'

Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'

Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.




Lesson 2 :
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'


'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk..
'I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world..'
Poof! She's gone.

'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep.
'I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas, and the love of my life.'
Poof! He's gone.

'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, 'I want those two back in the officeafter lunch.'

Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.




Lesson 3
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'
The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.




Lesson 4
A turkey was chatting with a bull. 'I would love to be able to get to
the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'

'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. It's full of nutrients.'

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

The next day,
after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch..

Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.



Moral of the story:
Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there...



THUS ENDS THE 5-MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE.
