this is our first time going to a much-discussed isetan private sale cos my mum just got their membership recently. the sale is realllyyyyyy worth going and squezzing!

well.. one thing we notice is that TAI TAI ALSO GIAN SALE! there are so many tai tais there lor.. all with curly hair and nice dress, with high high heels.. then there are also exceptionally large no. of mercedes and BMWs at the pick up point to pick up the tai tais.. lol.. anyway one sad thing is that all the nice bags of fendi and ferragamo are all sold out when we reach there. those less 40% ones are all G-O-N-E. the tai tais must have been queueing at the entrance from 8.30am in order to go in at 9am to grab all the great deals.

haha happy thing is i finally got myself a much wanted levi's jeans. at 25% discount! and a dress and a lil denim cardigan... then mum got herself ck escape and moment, and u know what she got as gifts? one 100ml of contradiction, one handbag and one trolley tour bag, and dozens of samples perfum... too bad i need to go back to sch for projects....... but my parents are going back in the afternoon for a second round...

i am so looking forward to the next private sale!

LOL... reminds me of my poly days lingo..

posted by frances_sha @ 11:17 PM  
Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed
that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a
lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed
itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system
activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0, Hunting
and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6

I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to
run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to
Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please


A Troubled User.

Dear Troubled User

This is a very common problem.

Many men upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is
just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING
SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also
impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is
impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system
once installed.

You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to
not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under
Warnings-Alimony-Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0
and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the
background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE because
ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the
system will return to normal anyway.

Wife 1.0 i s a great program, but it tends to be very high
maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as
Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2.

However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will
cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5 and/or PMS 99.0.
Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife
1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and
Diamonds 5.0!

WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With
Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and
will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,
Tech Support

Market Spoilers

posted by frances_sha @ 5:27 PM  
Just finish my Strategy class.

met the worst market spoilers i seen in SMU.

its only 3rd week of school, and today was the first presentation group of my strategy class.

well, for my strategy class, it works in a way where each project group is a consultancy firm. And each week, there will be one firm (group) presenting a case, which is in the format of a workshop. the presentation will be 1 and half hour long (requested by prof).

so, this first group that presented just now did:

1) send out mailer to publicise their workshop
2) videos (which is a neccessity now, unlike in year 1 where video is a wow.), anyway, their video is in the form of news, had a pretty newspaper background, unlike what we always do --> maximise the whole screen.
3) give out vouchers for people who answered their questions correctly
4) used a random name selector to ask people to answer their questions
5) make use of this polling system just like Who wants to be a millionaire as the audience poll when the person can't answer the qn.
(trust me, their polling system works exactly same as the bai wan da ying jia. everyone got a remote control in our hands)
6) used an electronic polling system for us to key in our choice
7) facilitate discussion in our groups
8) Biggest prize for the person who won in the last game call "Last Man Standing"


and after their presentation, the prof said, "well, i think this group had set the standards..."
