Hey everybody! So I just want to wish my big sister Claire and my little brother Ricky a Happy Birthday! Yes, my youngest and eldest siblings share the same birth date. What are the chances right?
My mum, dad, big sister, little brother and little cousin are now in Hong Kong for holiday. I have been spending lots of quality time with them and loving it. Hopefully can get lots of footage for vlog clips for you guys. Most importantly, ideas for Bubbiosity videos of course. Chubbi was so excited about seeing my big sister that she accidently left a little something extra on her socks LOL. Sorry sis…
It felt really good to see Leon and Ricky again because I forgot how hilarious they are as a team.
These past 2 days, I’ve been working crazy with my sister and Kevin (her boyfriend) to have the new Bubzbeauty.com launched as soon as possible for you guys. My sister works on designing, Kevin works on coding and I work on content.
Today, we planned to take some photos for the new website but couldn’t do so because my face broke out in a rash today. My sister kept laughing at my ‘moustache of red dots’ so hopefully tomorrow, my skin will improve and we can take some photos.
We ended up taking pictures of my makeup brushes and it was so happy. We had this really low production photography team. We just had a piece of white A4 paper as the background and hoped for the best. It was so much fun though.
Kevin: In charge of lighting (holds a crappy table lamp LOL)
Claire: In charge of product position (sellotapes brushes to the white piece of paper)
Lindy/Bubz: Photographer (in charge of pushing the camera button)
So we will take more photos tomorrow for the new website and it’s going to be a long day ahead but I’m sure we will have fun.
It’s just been such a long time since I’ve worked in a team and to be honest, I have never had good experience working in a team. I don’t know why but during university, I remember whenever we were put into teams for group projects; I was always in a team with the worse people. They NEVER ever turn up in class or lagged others behind so it kind of made me into a “I can do it all by myself” person. This isn’t just about university projects, it’s also housework, designing, planning etc. There are two reasons why we try to do things ourselves.
- We can be perfectionists so we think “If I do it myself, it means I will execute everything well”. Now this actually never ends up being the case.
- We are insecure that this person may perform the task better.
Never feel you must take on the World by yourself. I know I can’t because I stress easily and when I panic, I rush my work thus leads to my work not reaching it’s full potential. No matter how much work you have, never try to juggle different tasks at a go. I have learnt this the hard way and have had to start all over again many times. Work on one task and when you’re done, move on to the next.
I’m going to keep this entry short because I need sleep… lol. Good night everybody and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Chubbi is part of our working team. It took a lot of people and lots of doggy snacks to have her pose for us! She looks so cute!
