Wedding Coordination Projects

26 Mar

Like what I mentioned in my earlier post, I am doing freelance event coordination. Although my experience is in corporate events such as convention and exhibits, life events also fascinates me. It is nice to see happy faces knowing that you are the one who created it.

Two months from now, the wedding of my high school buddy is happening. I am the coordinator her color palette is gold, purple, and blue. I like the combination of the two, it is very elegant. We are now at the phase of our checklist where we tick out some accessories like wedding veil, wedding dresses, and wedding shoes. I notice some brides find it hard to choose these accessories for their big day. They compromise personal style, comfort, price. These are also the accessories that will make a statement on your wedding day.

Every time I make my pitch on brides I am imagining my wedding. I am still torn whether I like something simple or grand. A secret wedding sounds appealing to me, where people will only find out about the occasion once you instagram it. LOL

The reason why I don’t plan my own is because years ago I got a feedback that if a girl starts planning for a wedding at the early stage of your relationship, men will freak out. Since then I ignore to plan my own, no matter how I go around inside my mind about how I want it to be. I cannot extract anything.

Maybe wedding planning aftershocks for others is taking its toll on me.

After this May wedding I am doing, I gonna be coordinating a wedding in January 2015. The month and the year is special to me (ending the story here). I also got an inquiry about the destination wedding care of my proud daddy.

They were drinking when they called me to pitch in the plans, but I hope the client will remember to call me.

Is this the sign for a total change of heart?

I am turning 25 and I want to be someone.

A person my past self-will be proud of.

Thank you, dear God for all the blessings.

26 Mar

This is my second time to spend the night in the office. The first one was in 2009 when we were stranded because of typhoon Ondoy. This time around I am stranded with work… I do not understand why I mismanaged my time, did I really entertain so much inquiry?

I guess not.

I am relieved now because I was able to finish all my layout tasks, I wonder, if I can train someone to do my job, it will lessen my burden. The problem is we only have one licensed software here and I was the one who introduced to use it. Well, I do not want to continue doing magazines in office word and yes, it is 2014.

I feel sorry for the suppliers whom spending the night awake like me. If all of us commit with the deadline given I am pretty sure I am not typing this entry now.

The big event will be next week and I am praying hard that it will be once again successful. I feel proud knowing that I am behind the event.

As for the other things going on with my life. My wedding coordination sideline is doing good. I am thinking to build my team as I realized that I cannot handle everything alone. I know somewhere there is a competitive person who can do magnificent tasks if trained well.

I am excited to pursue this career, styling and coordinating.

As for the other business I am doing, *screams* I was qualified to enjoy the lifetime matching bonus. How cool is that? I will be able to accumulate passive income once I set up this. I cannot contain my excitement.

I must admit, at first I was very skeptical but….. if they can do it, why can’t I?

I learn not to limit myself to things that will lead me to greater success and fulfillment.

As I finish this note for tonight (morning). I hope my next caffeine shot will be effective.

This is still going to be a long day for me.

success quote

 

I am hungry as of this writing, but I need this. I’ve been out of my sanity these past few days thinking about how to do things. It’s not the right thing to do because how will I able to carry out something when you don’t get started.

And yeah, I just want to insert that quote above.

I am in the midst of all my deadlines, but I am hopeful that I will be able to do them all. They all believe that I can so I better double the effort by believing in myself too.

I know I should not doubt any of my capabilities because circumstances don’t pop out of nowhere unless the mighty creator believe that you can surpass it.

With the 72 hours I have to push my limit, I finish this note with determination that yeah, I can do it.

No turning back now, not in my vocabulary.

PUSH!

What’s up, March?

5 Mar

With every sleepless night I am having now, I still feel my work is not enough. There are still idle times, which I wished I should have been productive. But I cannot wait every thing to be perfect according to the article that I am reading to start moving. I should drag my as* off the bed  now and take step one. Thinking endlessly about how to make things instead of actually doing it slows down the result. So here I am forcing myself to go with the flow. 

Writing to-dos greatly help me run through my task throughout the day. I feel fulfilled every time I tick one item out of my list and by doing this I can carry out more. 

Am I making sense? Maybe this is stress writing. 

Of course I cannot get away with my blogging as this is my only outlet. My backlogs have increased enormously and I shall start making drafts of it. 

My event will be on March 31, after preparing for a year the event will be over with just a wink. The wedding I am doing also is on due as well, plus reaching the momentum of my new business. 

I must be crazy now.

I know the road is going to be rough while constructing it, but sooner this road I am taking will be bump free. 

Book Overview| I wish they taught money in High School (2-in-1 Book)

24 Feb

I wish they taught money in high school

I wish they taught money in High School

I am very happy to receive this book for  review. It is very timely as I make my way in developing my financial IQ. I could proudly say that I am good at so many things, but I am not good with my finances and I am playing it safe.

This book has two sections: (1) I wish they taught money in High School so I’m not dependent on my paycheck; (2) I wish they taught money in High School so I can start my business right away.

Let’s talk about  the first section which was written by Ms. Clarissa Seriña De La Paz.

The book first explained basic accounting jargon so it is easier understood by someone like me (a broadcasting major). She briefly explains the right formula to have extra income or passive income (a money earned from sitting pretty).

Most part of the book was from Robert Kiyosaki’s best-selling books. She also explained some myths about money and busted them out.

She also showed samples on how your salary loan could earn. Imagine a yearly renewal of salary loan could earn so much by investing in the right stocks or bonds.

At the end of her section she illustrated navigational tools to help readers start their own journey and become rich.

The second section of the book was written by Ms. Sharon Que.

She then explored the ideas of having a business. It could be something you will own or franchise.

She also illustrated samples of her own real estate business. And then emphasizing in making your goals clear and giving your 100% in each action.

She has hits of investing too, where your money can work for you.

In the end she showed a sample or letter of intent if we wish to start buying foreclosure properties out there.

Overall, I liked the book because of its simplicity, the illustration too is very friendly. It is like I am just talking to a close friend. This book gave easy jump starters, if you want to makeover the financial aspect of your life.

This is also a good reference book of what you can read to enhance your knowledge and interest in investing and business. You may want to read the actual books of Kiyosaki and Maxwell to learn more. You may also join seminars on investment or other ways of passive income.

Most importantly, this book strengthens my belief in knowledge and gratitude. We could all be rich if we will use our minds and God given talents. Extensive research won’t hurt and thus book showed the adventure of two brave women who will run the world.

If they can do it, of course we can too.

I am happy that with this book I can see myself on the right track.

I definitely recommend this book for people out there who are playing it safe. As Mr. Kiyosaki says we all have little chicken inside us, maybe it is time for us to fry it and sell (or eat) it.

Hong Kong 2014 Trip Summary

18 Feb

Hong Kong is one of the country that is often visited by most Filipinos. It has sight attractions, amusement parks, and is not really expensive. You may save for a year to get an enjoyable three days, two nights in the city.

This is my third in Hong Kong and this time it is not work related. I have explored the place like a tourist.

I was with my in-laws to celebrate my boyfriend’s little sister’s birthday (too possessive noun there eh?)

DAY 1: February 12, 2014

Straight from the airport, we went to Tung Chung to experience Ngong Ping 360 and see the big Buddha.

It was super cold, I’ve never experienced winter before. It was really foggy the cable car looks like a scene from silent hill.

Zen Noodles Cafe

We need something hot to counter the coldness of the place and then we walked.

buffalo in ngong pingWe also saw this Buffalo.

Buddha

I managed to climb the 268 step stairs without being tired, but the Buddha looks like an apparition because of the bad weather. :(

We checked into our hotel after our visit in Ngong Ping and then went to Victoria Peak.

The peak tram line was so long, so we skipped that part and went back to the hotel.

DAY 2: February 13, 2014

This is our Disneyland day, unfortunately the rain poured on us.

Hong Kong Disneyland

I felt like a child upon seeing the place. I love amusement parks.

tomorrow landI got a map and checked every ride that has cautioned – meaning EXTREMES. I loitered one land at a time.

Donald Duck

Popcorn

Grizzly Gulch

Grizzly Gulch is my favorite ride. It is in Adventure Land.

And then we watch the classic Lion King Musical performance.

Lion King - Simba

We continue to roam around Disneyland.

Mystic Manor

small world Disney Land

Thus, Disneyland is for kids, the rides were not all extreme for me, but I enjoyed my rainy adventure.

DAY 3: February 14, 2014

This year I still do not have flowers for Valentine’s Day. LOL I really made a mistake not taking the flowers I received four years ago and now my sweetheart never gives me a bouquet at all.

It’s our first out of the country trip and we went to Macau. We were not the kind of couple who publicly displays affection, but hey Macau was a romantic (place to play Casino LOL)

We went to the Emperor Hotel to see Jackie Chan’s Gold, we went to Centro to buy some souvenir and enjoy the taste test, then we went to the ruins, then to Stanley Ho’s collections, finishing the tour at the Venetian hotel.

Macau is indeed a city of lights.

I still want to come back and visit the Macau Tower for Bungee Jumping. I really want to experience it so I will be saving money for that.

I have this dream of travelling the world so maybe I will look for another country to explore.

I love travelling.

My January: The best is yet to come

10 Feb

best

Now that I am not speaking for three days as per doctor’s advised maybe this is the best time I will write about the sought after January I had. I’ve been holding on my real blog post on my Evernote app on my iPad. I still do not why I keep my thoughts when I pay for my yearly domain (which will expire again this April). Should I start writing publicly?

So far…

My year started right, I stick to my Yoga routine and I am proud to say I can do the Sun Salutation in proper breathing coordination. My tummy can touch my thighs and I am so excited that I will be able to do other positions with continuous practice.

I gave up one meal a day and replaced it with a healthy smoothie.

I started taking up vitamins to rejuvenate my cell.

I stick to my to do’s every morning.

I started a new income generating sideline with le boyfriend.

My events business is now accepting clients and I am on board on May 2014 for my first client this year.

And most importantly, I became a more positive person.

The stars told me that my Karma is to help others and I can see the light.

May I be blessed with courage and patience to lead the journey I am taking.

May I earn wisdom and pass it on to my loved ones.

I promise to write more beneficial post for everyone.

Thanks for reading my life updates.

SAM
