Mummy, Daddy, I Love You.

This will be a rather wordy post. Hahah!

I'm 22 years old this year, and I've been thinking to myself. "What if one day my parents are no longer here with me, what would I do?"

I'm sure many of you will think about this at some point in life. Recently, this question have been popping on my head. I can't help but to feel sad whenever the thought of not having my parents around with me comes to my mind. Its just... sad.

I'm very attached to my parents, well, my mom to be exact. I love her, and I can see that in the recent years, she has turned haggard and frail due to her age. I can't wait for the day where I can tell her, "Mom, you don't have to work anymore, I can support you now..." Really, I can't wait for this day to come.

Eventhough I don't come from a wealthy family, my family income is average, my parents earn just enough to support the family, but, my parents never fail to give/provide me with whatever I want.

Since young, I was pampered by my dad, whatever I want, he will buy for me, even till now, and I am truly grateful for what he has done for me, and for this family.

After having so many thoughts running through my mind, I can't help but to feel grateful and appreciative for the little things my parents do for me, and I feel that everyone should be grateful for what their parents have done for them as well.

We may complain about how our parents are nagging at us for certain things we do in life, but look on the brighter side, do you think they want to nag at you just because they feel satisfied for nagging at you? NO! They nag at you because you're doing something wrong, (OBVIOUSLY), and want you to change for the better.

I understand sometimes our parents can be in the wrong and that is because of their lack in understanding the situation, it doesn't hurt to explain to them nicely rather than screaming our heads out at them....

Put yourself in your parents shoe, how would you feel if your child were to scream at you? You'll feel hurt won't you?

I just hope that everyone would put themselves in their parents' situation before lashing out at them. Think from their perspective. You might hate them for nagging at you now, but you'll definitely wish they were there to nag at you when they're gone.

Start loving your parents like how they've showered their love for you. Start appreciating the little things they do for you before you regret, then, its too late.

Even if its just a simple dinner, they love it when you spend your time with them.

I just want to jot down at this little space of mine, remembering the little things my parents have done for me. Thank you mommy and daddy, I love you. :')

What I Do For Marketing

So hello all! This post is gonna be me sharing the things that I did for my entire Polytechnic year 2 journey in Temasek Polytechnic. Well if you guys don't know, I'm currently studying Diploma in Marketing. I can't say its completely boring or I hate it, its a mixture of good and bad if you'd ask me.

So throughout this whole year, I've had some modules that we had real life clients for our projects, clients such as Samsung, IKEA, Clinique and Lab Series. So when we're coming out with an idea, we will tend to create some videos for our projects, so here are some of it which me and my groupmates have created throughout our year 2 journey.

*DISCLAIMER*
I'm just sharing the videos that I have done for my school projects. So what you see for the ideas is just purely for project purposes and the brands you see inside is not liable for what is shown. So do take note, this is just for sharing purposes only. Thank you for your understanding.

Creative Campaign Project
For this project, our client is Samsung, and we have to create an event in school to raise awareness of Samsung's galaxy note 10.1, the great thing about this module is that Samsung generously loan us a tablet for each group in every class, and we get to play with it.

So here's the video that me and my groupmates created before the event, our main purpose for the video is to raise awareness and also to get students in school to go to our booth on the day itself.



Next up for component 2 of this project, we're required to come up with 5 ideas and to execute 1 of it. So my group decided on Samsung's Birthday Bash. Actually, we are also time constraint so we just had to make do with what we had at that point of time. So yea.



Advertising & Promotion
One of the module which I look forward to taking. I took this module during semester 2.2, which is recently la. We had to choose the types of media to place our advertisements in one of the component for this project, and my group chose TV Ads. Therefore we have to come up with a "TV Ads" kinda thing for our project presentation, so this is the video that we have come up with.



As you can see, the video above is slightly incomplete, this is because I uploaded the draft onto Youtube instead of the finalized one. But you guys get the idea! It's just the credit part is not done, the video that we did was somehow like what you've seen above.

Now before I end this post.
Here's a video that my group and I did for one of our Creative Campaign Project tutorial. Enjoy~

Harlem Shake x Gentlemen



Sorry for the amateur and bad video quality. 
P/S: I'm not a film or media student.

Headed to Jiayu's house after that. Did a little pre celebration for Yongqin's 19th birthday! WTF?!!! That was the age when I met/knew them in year 1 of my Polytechnic life!!! T.T

Yongqin was given tasks to do before she was given a clue to the next present that was hidden in Jiayu's house! Kudos to Mellysa and Jiayu for planning it and also Mooi Suen and BF for buying the cake! ^.^

I will definitely not forget about the guessing of my undergarment part! TSKTSK!!!

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

Hello there everybody! How's your Chinese New Year? Well, mine is great so far! Okay not really that great, on a scale of 1 to 10 maybe 6??? Hahaha!!!

I still remember when I was younger, I really love and anticipate CNY! But as I grew older, it kinda gets boring. As in, there's nothing much we can do except house visiting as most of the shops will be close. But to my surprise, cotton on and toastbox are open during CNY this year! So yea.

So I had reunion dinner with my family on the 30th January, which was the eve of Chinese New Year.



One of the main reasons I look forward to CNY! I get to eat lots and lots of food! I really love this kind of atmosphere, where my house will be fully lighted up and it will be so happening, with my sis friends coming over to "Bai Nian" and overnight Mahjong session with my parents. Hahah! But I'll be like some loner in my room using my phone la, or maybe watching the television. Hahaha!

So after having my reunion dinner, I went down my block to play sparkles with my sisters. My 3rd sis decides to be "creative" and made a "rocket" out of sparkles!



After that, we head back home and started chilling and watching television. Some channel 8 live show! Hahah! That pretty much sums up my CNY Eve.

DAY 1
Day 1 of CNY! Did practically nothing. Rotted at home the whole entire day. Waited for my Uncle (My dad's brother) to come over to our house for visiting and that's it. OH! I ordered McDelivery that costs $45.60 and my dad paid for it. Hahaha! Cuz I told him I was angry at him for some reason and VOILA!

#PERKSOFBEINGTHEYOUNGESTSON

But anyway, the Mcdonalds that I ordered is for my family, consisting of My mom, 2 sis, myself and my bro-in-law. So yea! I personally feel its quite expensive but my sis beg to defer. Oh wells.

Later at night, I went to AMK Hub together with my mom to purchase tickets for "THE LION MEN" Yayyyy! And that's Day 1 of my CNY! Hahaha!

DAY 2
Woke up early for McBreakkie with le Mom and Sis! Went back home, and bathed, did the necessary stuff and then off we go for house visiting at our relatives place.

Photo with my Mom, 3rd Sis and Dad.

Didn't really take much photos also. Cuz well.... I was shy and I don't wanna whip out my camera infront of my relatives! Hahaha!

CHINESE NEW YEAR GOODIES! #ReasonsWhyImGrowingHorizontally

 photo AP2015136_526F672C.jpg

Now ending this post with 2 more photos. I swear to god my sis is no photographer material. She had a hard time using my cam and the photos turns out like SHIAAAT (mostly). BUT STILL! I really appreciate her effort and help for taking photos for me. ♥ #SiblingsLOVE
