Awesome April πŸŽ‰

On & On x Paddy Hills
Wedding Video

Part I

#dayrebrides worthy?

It’s actually a full minute long + and I had to cut some excess + into half so I could upload it on dayre.

I’m gonna be honest and let your know this wasn’t my idea at all so I’m not gonna take credit! It was Bryan’s idea to engage videographer to cover this event and also part of our plans when we wanted to unveil the wedding page later on.

Part II of our video

#dayrefatties anyone hungry watching this at midnight like me?? πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️

I’m just excited for the wedding page new updates - so much changes have been done by Michelle (our intern) and I’m so happy that things are more or less 70% completed.

You should check out all the new uploads she did last week - Mongchin’s wedding photos, her testimonial review 😒

Also > @onandondiners if you wanna read what happen for the wedding day! πŸ™‹πŸ»‍β™€οΈπŸŽ‰

Things do fall into place with time

For better or worse. Initially I felt that March was 2march2handle - but realising now that it was for the better.

If I was comfortable throughout this work journey - there would barely be any form of improvements. Situations create opportunities - of growth, learning new skills and in some cases, realising that I should not hang on and move

It also gave me more time to reflect on flaws of myself and how I can be better going forward!

I’ll be kidding if I say I don’t miss my previous GD, S, she’s honestly a good GD with strong work ethics. She and I however δΈδΌšεΌ€ε£ to our intern if the submitted work really cmi πŸ™…πŸ»‍♀️

So on that aspect I hope I can improve and be direct in real life if i cannot stand the work produced. Instead of going one round and wording it nicely to redo or just shoving it aside because you realise asking them to do that is hopeless and move on cos their standard tak match 😭

Moving on..

No one will stay for life at work - and that’s something I’ve to learn and understand that as the firm progresses - some will also find progress in their work life and move on.

If not for this situation - I would never discover and bother playing around w new apps, new skills and create weekly todos and things to work on! So yes, focus on the progress!

I shall name this month Awesome April instead!

Hehe instead of what @pennyblack say Awful April cos that way we are DED πŸ€ͺ

On interns & testimonials

It’s the usual period for testimonial timing for Uni and I’m always happy to help them write a good strong review cos of their good work ethics.

Nothing makes me happier to see them progress into their chosen uni! ❀️ Or the overseas programs / Job referrals for my past interns that I’m appreciative of.

Presentation πŸ™…πŸ»‍♀️

Yes that’s right bryan told me like yesterday about next week presentation and I’m like hahaha don’t be funny cos he told me before we slept and he kept laughing???

I kept thinking it’s a stupid April fool joke till I asked his parents about it if it was serious... 😒

Hahaha really the starting was like Bryan told me next week have xxxx, don’t have right? April fool right?

Yes shoot me indeed la sian hahahaa I’m so used to doing the slide deck for them but not presenting oh why oh why me πŸ™ƒ

Today we left at 10pm and I send out like record emails for external On & On stuff and worse Bryan is unwell this few days tho so I’m worried he too tired. Think i must do steamboat soup for him and cook something for him this Friday!

Hiring also made me realise how I’ve taken education for granted

I recently put up one job ad and realise 60-70 applicants applied for one admin job, reviewing resumes showed how most of them are unable to climb out of their situation due to lack of education.

Basic skills in excel, outlook or in some cases, drafting an explanation email nicely which is achievable w/o much effort (& taken for granted) could be something that isn’t as easy for them.

I was really shoooooook cos.. I think we are really privilege/ sheltered and never thought much of these.

On that note - I have no idea where I should start for the hiring for Wedding Stylist.

Any tips? Hahahaha man the only person I thought of who I sort of follow in terms of wedding styling was @themerrymaker!

Where do they start, and how do they learn? I remember there being a course a long long time ago by a dayrean on setting up for events and I MISSED IT LA omytian shoot me.

Dayre 2.0 (Plus Points?)

Anyone who is as excited as me for dayre 2.0 cos no more square????

Thank god I ain’t an ocd person but ya is abit sian la cos I know most people browse our website on mobile and not on desktop at times.

The wedding page looks best via desktop - we’ve made quite abit of changes but I couldn’t see them prev cos OMG I visit the website too many times and everything is cached so I stun!!

Did a mini panic there and told my intern fml isit everything uploaded wrong???? Hehe thank goodness

Dayre >> 2.0?

The fact that the current team are reviving it.. I mean the weekly editor pick (whether or not it’s your cup of tea I have no idea why people go all omg I hate this week ep zzz like wtfbbq they didn’t ask to be it??? just take a chill pill and not read la aiyo)

Being part and parcel of dayre drama back then lol all I can say is.. you can be internet friends but you can also lose internet friends when you pick a side and stand at times. But rlly don’t get upset over it just the internet yo

But mmm I honestly am waiting for more to be unveiled before I decide if I love the new dayre!

Considering yknow one of my favourite activity when I’m travelling is googling like.. my upcoming trip right then I’ll Google

Taipei dayre

Then I read 🀩 and now w them gating it and then non googleable just makes me abit sad cos it’s abit hard to find so many new blogs and sieve the post on what I’m searching for at times?

Anyone feel meeeeeee πŸ˜ͺ

(In case it’s not obvious..)

All I think about these days is my break in May w my sis and mom at Taipei.

Because my mom is going and yknow she’s my ηš‡ε€ͺ后 i everything also plan hao hao for her sia. Needa run through itinerary w them next week liao and praying when I go it wouldn’t be that hottttttt

I miss Taipei when it was like air con season heh

Oh yes and... sorry small biz typical problem k

Makes me sad that On & On dayre post will be private (will they??) ahhh le sigh.

Makes me wonder and was discussing w Michelle the other day whether to create a blog section in On & On web page. It’s certainly less engaging then on dayre tho 😭

Also.. no idea why by Deliveroo is running a 30% off KFC menus?

I know generally delivery food prices are jacked up slightly la, but 30% is not bad lol.

Also.. reason for going to Deliveroo instead is because...


I’ve been meaning to try after seeing the dayreans I follow eat!!! I was at hillion mall w my mom the other day and the queue for KFC was πŸ™ƒ ridic

Okay bye imma order and tell y’all if it’s good k

Not mala but feels peppery? It’s not bad la but if u think mala then it doesn’t match. Okay la try once cos it’s here for a limited timing.

It’s not bad if you don’t think it’s mala. Pretty alright for another rendition of Crispy KFC!

Also uhhhh finally lol after 2 years here we gonna take thematic setup for kids parties more seriously and also hopefully this is useable for beautiful weddings! This is the base set that was previously bought.

I was told the delivery guys were v funny at the mall cos they have to go get Ponies, Baby Shark and the likes πŸ˜‚

Annnd yeah just part of the promo we listed that will be down in May - Provision of the Red Packet Box Rental for couples that engage us!

It has individual back doors for each section (bride / groom)

We were admiring the wood / and the indent of the words earlier πŸ˜…

On wedding fairs

Previously, I headed to the wedding fair to check out how they decorated the booths and left feeling slightly in awe of the various brands

I’m weird cos I felt so happy for them as I see their display - like wow hey good job πŸ‘ I could feel / see the thought that went into their display, and sometimes think to myself how far much to go before I’ve the confidence to open a booth .

This is apart from the conflicting thought that prices might increase w such fair cos I believe rent ain’t cheap!

Some were cosy and small, some were big and elaborate. A couple was disappointing - it was.. hard sell and not much display / pretty bare.

I think every store had v good learning points which made me pretty happy going!

I can’t wait to customise more stuff for On & On, recently we’ve been on a buying spree for props 😍😍

Also I know the photos I snapped is cui ok cos usually is I wanna take just an element or see how they tie the strings and material so I can learn how to display certain things well πŸ˜…

Their setup is πŸ’― πŸ’―

Last random buy for today

YESSAH we bought a swing during the evening πŸŽ‰

Hahahahaha this week amuse me w what we do w our purchases eh....

themerrymaker why not try partnering a full time stylist instead? MLW is still in business! hehe. or can try asking Med Karlek or Styled Story too! πŸ™†πŸ»‍♀️ since they alr have props and inventory, you wont need to spend money to buy your own, might be more cost effective.

fionasoh @estheretc thanks for the tip! I’m just worried of that cos not everyone has experience on doing setups (and we are not a pro in this aspect).

@pennyblack I saw your OT and I was like this is a superwoman right there. Hang in there πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

@hellodaisy awww it’s more towards peppery for me?? Not mala but still can pass πŸ˜…

fionasoh @themerrymaker we prefer having it in house so that our customers are more assured (and less hassle / dealing w external parties). We also prefer to buy the props and use them across more events!
