MIA Updates

My apology for missing in action for so long. Life has been pretty hectic since my SSEAYP training started last month. Long hours of training, 4 days a week which leave me only 3 other days to catch up with work and some rest.

Currently I'm also working with a stationary company in Japan (Tokyo and Osaka), on their winter series. I was thrilled when they contacted me to work with them. Another surprise came when I saw their company's name - Winged Wheel. The first thought that came to mind was, 'Angel's' Wings???!! :DD

See their logo? ♥

Not only do I love their name, I adore their style as well! Simple, chic and classic.. that's what they are. Furthermore, their paper products are made from 100% cotton fiber paper, also known as the world's finest quality paper. And you know what? Winged Wheel was established in 1918....that's almost a CENTURY ago!!! WOW! I'm so hoping I'll get to see my designs selling in Tokyo when I visit Japan this October. Hee hee. My Angels must have been watching over me. :)

Drooling over their vibrant colored envelopes... Love the black/fusion pink one especially! :)

For more information on Winged Wheel and what other fabulous stuffs they have, check out their website or their blog.

Moving on... I'd promised updates with photos of my training sessions so there you go! The Singapore contingent! :) There are 29 of us, including our national leader.

Our first residential training session.... Checking into our 'jungle' lodge.

Now you know why it's call the jungle lodge. Couldn't complain much about the room.. it's clean and nice BUT for a light sleeper like me, sleeping in a room with 6 other people was a real challenge. Needlessly to say, I only managed to get one hour of rest that night. =___= 

My roommates (with one missing that day).

Forget about the contact lens, I'm going to look unglam for the rest of the training sessions. lol

I feel like I'm back to school again.

Briefing by past years' participants. (I swear I wasn't sleeping okay.)

Someone was spying me!


Choosing fabric for our uniforms.

Dinner time!

Firecrackers time! hahaa. This was fun. We were transported back into our childhood days. Thank you, Sherry for bringing these firecrackers for us. :)

Flag raising ceremony the following morning before we proceed for sports and games.

First casualty of the day. Lol.

That's all I have for you today. If I have to upload all the photos, I'm sure it'll take me at least another 2 days to do so. Apart from the deprivation of rest, I have so much to be thankful for; everyone is easy to get along with, we take care of one another and most importantly, we're having lots of fun together. :)

I'll be back for more updates! Meanwhile, take care everyone~ ♥ ♥ ♥

I just can't believe how much your work keeps expanding! When you are a famous millionaire, I hope you'll remember all the times I predicted how successful you'd be. And then I can say "I told you so!" ;-)

It looks like you're having such a fun time with the training! I'm a light sleeper too, so I can see how the sleeping arrangements might be difficult. If you have access to some chamomile tea, maybe a warm cup sweetened with honey would help you sleep better. It works for me! I'm so proud of you for taking a risk and doing something ambitious. You're such an inspiration, buddy!
