Guess where am I on the second day of my CNY break?
BACK AT ORCHARD GATEWAY #TTR STORE. Hahahaha.
It's pretty quiet in the store today. Such a major contrast to the week prior to CNY. That was pure madness.
Things I'm planning to work on during my break:
✔️ get back to the gym (at least 3 times a week!!)
✔️ plan for upcoming designs
✔️ book air tickets and hotel for our first post CNY work trip
✔️ decide on what to pack along for hiking trip
✔️ plan for someone's birthday***
✔️ finally get down to using my waffle maker
I was half stoning just now when two girls walked in. They browsed for a bit and one of them said "hi Joyce" and waved at me.
I was a bit stunned because stoning and inside my head I was doing a frantic scan for their names to match their faces because I legit thought I was supposed to recognise them. I squinted hard at them but still, nothing registered.
They saved me by telling me "oh you don't know us." LOL.
Hello if you girls are reading this! Sorry I looked shocked hahaha. 👋🏻
Anyway, I collected snippets of conversations which happened over the course of CNY and thought I'll share them here!
I got a bit peeved with some of my relatives because the questions that some of them ask can get pretty intrusive honestly.. But never mind I take it as training my EQ lor.
After reunion dinner at home, my dad walked over, patted me on the shoulders and went…
💬 你年纪不小了，你知道啦，我不要讲 okay
Is it want to marry me off. 😂
I think that is his aim for year 2017 but erm hahaha he's gonna be disappointed for sure.
I also hope that's the case. 😂 But I think it's because of the dress I wore lolol. Sadz.
I think after CNY is 肥了一圈 because go every house also get offered food + snacks + drinks. Just eat and eat and eat all day everywhere.
朋友 met grandma on CNY day 2. Hahaha.
💬 I'm giving you funny content!
💬 Actually 你的生意做得比我大 leh 我还给你红包
My 生意 small small only, don't deprive me of the angbao please hahahaha. 😂
💬 Ehh you should sell menswear!
As always, my standard reply is – guys don't really have the habit of shopping online leh.
💬 要到你们了, my baby-carrying cousin looked at us and said.
Nope, not even close. Lol. 🙅🏻
💬 Now then upload clothes to sell ah? Like a bit late hor? My cousin commented when he saw us uploading our OOTDs on IG.
Sell finish already la. Hahahah. We not so hardcore.
Helping mum think of poses for OOTD.
💬 地上有钱, 看地上笑开心点!
Here comes the zero EQ questions. I seem to get a few every year. Lol.
💬 Still doing the business this year?
💬 Your Citylink store rental how much?
💬 How many thousands?
💬 How many pieces you make for every design? Got 100?
💬 You got office? Oh, not working from home anymore? It's those desk office that kind ah?
💬 How much you earn every month?
SO RUDE. You don't see me asking how much is your salary every month, do you?
I would sincerely like to think that they are just trying hard to make conversation but severely lacking in basic conversational skills. 😂😂😂
But seriously. Some of these questions really make me going ?????? wtf x 100000 in my head.
💬 My wallet cannot fold leh too many notes
Someone won money until the stack of money cannot fit into his wallet. 😂
💬 So how was my performance this CNY?
💬 You mean my gambling performance or my performance in front of your family?
Both la both. 💯
