well..i should say singaporeans has the shabby fashionthingy since my grandmum's grandmum time.... Singaporeans are always in shabby wear..everywhere..whether is it in the office or when they are shopping in orchard road..
Flip flops, shorts, t-shirt, singlet and auntie PJs are wat singaporeans are in when the parading themselves along the roads of our beautiful garden city.. and the reason we give for shabby wear??? weather too hot lah..... convenient ma...
Maybe the "main" reason y singapore is always behind HK *in one way or another* is due to the special fashion sense we have and no singlish or watever..
1) Our sales person here in singapore wears shirt/ polo tee and pants with sports shoes at work but the sales person in hk wears coat, tie, shirt and pants with shiny leather shoes.
2) Young working ladies will make a point to apply simple make up to work but in singapore, it's all in the MUST DO list.
3) Even if one day someone in HK feels like wearing PJs out of the house, she will pick the sexiest one ever.. *of coz not obseen ones la* something like a red low v cut satin nightie.. BUT for singaporeans.. cute hello kitty PJs for children and grandmum's night dress for mum is the prefect wear to west coast park early sunday morning for breakfast at MacDonald's..
Well, i'm not against shabby-ness or PJ-ing fashion but at least parade with the one that u look best in.. let's not waste the govts effort in decorating our country but putting on shabby clothes for all to see especially foreignerz as them do not understand "sibei hot ah"
too be frank.. i'm one of those that wears my nightie to work...and of coz i accessorise it to make it look juz as good as any other fashion wear u can find...
and wa..la...this is a pic of mi and my sales at work.. it's his off day and he is one typical singaporean.. styled hair, sunglasses BUT in T shirt, SHORTS and worse MARKET FLIP FLOPS!!! as for mi.. i've got my cute nightie on with nice satin ribbon, white hairband and white cuffs on..hmm.. in fact i look retro...
well.. with a little bit of creativity and willing-ness to look better, even a PJs can look GOOD~

I only hear abt how they treat toddlers coz my fren is in the toddler class..
The kids will come to the childcare in the morning as the parents have to drop them off b4 work.. so.. as parents.. we expects the childcare to teach them something example: singing, dancing or art... and in most brochures they have pictures of children reading, drawing and doing alot of activities.. but that is only the case when the parents are around to see...
According to my fren.. the teachers are not only trained with pre school skills, they are also trained to act in front of parents.
When the parents are around, whether it is when they drop the kids off, during lunch or when picking the child up, the teachers will treat the particular kid super well.. of coz the teachers there know who is who to be able to act.. and when the parents are not around.. the toddlers will be placed on high chairs and only given a book to play with or chew on.. and the ah ma or teacher juz sit in front of them to make sure they dun fall or do anything else besides playing with the book... and when it is bathing time,*hmm sorry did i use bath.. i should be using the word raise as the teacher juz pour water over the kids* the teacher will bath 3 children in one go and the toilet is super dirty..
My fren told me that there is this gal.. that likes to bite ppl.. and she is beaten by the teacher. *beat as in hands beat not cane or punch beat lah...* however, during lunch time when the mother of that gal comes to see if everything is ok, the teacher will keep saying that the gal is very good gal and pat her and sayang her...
worse thing is the childcare principal actually told my fren that she has to treat the kids well becoz the parents are all high flyers working and holding high positions in big organization...
So r u a high flyer that has a child in a childcare around orchard area?? have u ever tot that ur few thousand school fees a month can't be compared to wat we have in our neighbour childcare centers?? well.. think again....
My fren decided to leave the childcare after half a day as she cannot stand the way that childcare treats the children

i've decided to post it here for anyone who is interested in C K Tangs
If u r not interest abt C K Tangs... i think it's good to skip this post...
PS. Mini Garage has been updated..please check it out...
Name: See Ru Jun June
Student No.: 06029470
Batch No.: BBME10740A
Name of Selected company: C K Tang Limited
Brief of company
C K Tang Limited has grown from a humble store to one of Singapore’s premier retail company.
Founded upon the basic philosophy of honesty, integrity and value for money. C K Tang Limited aims to achieve their mission by continually setting tends and respond to changing need, fostering close relationship with their customers, staff and stakeholders.
Reason for selecting the company
As a all round retailer, I felt that it will be a enriching for me to understand how C K Tang Limited has established itself as a prominent leader in Singapore’s vibrant retail sense from a humble beginning.
Main Strategic issues facing the company
The company is currently facing the impacted by the uncertainty of the global economic situation with it’s root cause in the US sub-prime mortgage problems which has lead to the dampening of consumer spending confidence, causing consumers to tighten their belts. Too further affect the current situation the impact of the recent A(H1N1) virus is causing retail sales rates to slump even more as it forces people to stay away from crowded public places. This in turn has shattered fragile signs of a global economic rebound.
The increasing inflation has leaded to increasing human resource cost and rental rates for retail outlets have also continuously putting pressure on the operation cost.
Company’s contribution to National/ Regional
As one of Singapore’s major retail players, C K Tang has contributed to the second largest and fastest growing sector, the wholesales and retail sector. The wholesales and retail trade sector is accounting for 17 percent of Singapore’s GDP in 2008.
The retail sector is not only a vital part of the Singapore’s economy, it is also the key contributor of the service sector and employment rates. The industry employs 107,000 workers and is accounted for $ 4.6 billion of value added, generating $37.3 billion in operating receipts.
Recent strategic dilemma/choice
C K Tangs has recently expanded their TANGS store to Vivo city Singapore which is opened on Oct 2006 and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur Malaysia on Sept 2007.
Although operating and other expenses has cost a net loss after tax of $2.2 million, confident of the long-term potential of the locations of the new stores and continue to strive ensure that the operating performance improves as the new mall becomes established as preferred shopping destination for consumers.
C K Tangs has also begun to relook their retail strategy to improve their returns.

But that person changed me =) thx to that person in some ways.. if u were to know mi 2 to 3 years ago u will knw wat i'm talking abt..
Well..back to my problem... what should i do?? should i go for my teeth whitening.. coz i really wan it.. but wat should i do??

Went to Bangkok for 4 days 3 nights with my baby and his frenz.. Was fun~ super fun.. i did alot of shopping.... so much that i nv realize.. my groupies are tired =P sorry~ haha.. but it was fun lah..
We touch down at Bkk at around 9 plus 10 and we went straight to the hotel..We stayed at this hotel called The Heritage Bangkok.. pretty nice hotel..considering the price... the only thing that i seriously think the hotel should consider is to put more lamps in the hotel... it's totally dark!!! even the lobby toilet is dark.
Anyway...The bed is so... comfortable that whenever i lay on it i go unconscious..haha
ok..after checking in we went praying..the famous four faced Buddha.. after that we when sightseeing..and guess wat someone approached us telling us abt some lucky Buddha and that the temple is open once a month.. and that taking a tuk tuk there is only 20 baht~ and being so happy abt the cheap fare..we happily agreed to go.. the tuk tuk guy then bring us to the temple and told us to take our time.. and we went praying..and from no where this man came talking to us telling us abt a gem call the Buddha heart... kinda of like brainwash us to buy the gems at blah blah blah export center..his english was really....lousy that i can't really make out wat he say.. but he said something that made mi feel something fishy..he said that he was studying in england... AND HIS ENGLISH CANNOT MAKE IT.. but i drop that fishy thingy coz i tot they canot be lying with Buddha stuff...
so after praying..we went back to the tuk tuk and he was suppose to bring us back to the shopping area..however.. he brought us to this gem export center..making it more fishy..but since we are curious abt seeing this Buddha heart gem, we went in..Buddha heart is actually pinkish-orange sapphire.. but too bad for them we are on budget so.. we juz bring out our singaporean style shopping "see see look look" then we leave for our shopping area...and we continued shopping and eating shopping and eating for the next few days...(this is to shorten my long winded blog) haa!! anyway.. pictures. but if u wanna know more abt the scam tricks.. u can go to the below link.

not that something has happened juz that i lack motivation in blogging..
Well.. i guess i'll juz start by blogging songs tat i feel reflects my current thinking and feelings
i know it's a very old song.. but still... it sings alot of meaning..
well, not that he has left me or watsoever.. in fact he has been very nice and caring towards mi.. but there is something in me that is rejecting all the nice tots..perhaps.. i'm too afraid that all this maybe juz an illution..juz like the last time..perhaps..i'm too afraid to get hurt again.. but above all this..i keep reminding myself that being afraid might make mi lose more...
i've remember telling someone that i no longer know how to love someone... i dunno wat is it due to.. maybe the things that has happened around mi made mi realize that i should love myself more...maybe it's the hurts that has numbed the way i use to feel about love.. i dunno..
well, regardless of watever.. i'm trying to get my oldself back..
Anyway... the song...
PS. Will be updating abt my bkk trip next blog..
