First of all, CHEERS TO SABBYNANA!!! For a successful photoshoot. It was a very long day for all of us.. woke up at 8am in the morning and we didn’t sleep till like 2am the next day.
Long story short, Sabrina is starting her own business of providing quality bridal gowns for a fraction of the price for future brides because she believes that weddings shouldn’t cost a bomb! This idea came to her when she was preparing for her sister’s wedding and she was shocked at how much the total bill came up to.
When she was planning to think of what to do, she showed us some YouTube videos… but after viewing, I got worried.
You see, I help clients sell their things day in and day out. I know it is very important to anchor a brand, its unique proposition (AKA what value are you bringing to the society with YOUR brand? Why should customers choose you over a full-fledged bridal boutique?), etc. Call me occupational hazard, but I am just like this. If I can help clients sell their services, why can’t I help my own friend?
Our girl group consists of Rachel, Diane, Jasmine, Sabrina and me, each with our own unique personalities but when we come together, it is a lethal combination. All of us are so different but we work extremely well together. Normally, I am the brain behind things. Rachel and Jasmine are always the models because they are extremely gorgeous. Sabrina is more of a do-er and Diane is more of a quiet supporter (she helps in whatever ways she can). Basically, I prefer to be behind the camera. I am extremely awkward in front of a camera. No idea.
So with that, we set out to launch Royal Rose with the brand’s first photo shoot and online video. Sabrina did most of the things herself. I simply provided her with several key questions that she has to answer, the overall concept, etc. After all, it’s all about selling, right?
Our girl group in action. SO BLESSED for us to have one another in our lives.
We started the shoot at 11am… and it was non-stop work till 6:30pm. By then, we were all zombies walking around. It was round the clock working and Ben (the photographer, aka Diane & Daphne’s elder brother), Rachel & Jasmine didn’t even have time for lunch. By evening, they were wolfing down their packed lunch.
Look at how gorgeous Rachel & Jasmine are!! And it is not even their REAL weddings. Can’t imagine how it will be like when it is their turn for real.
Before we left the studio, we had an impromptu photo shoot to celebrate our friendship with the bunny hats + socks Rachel got for us from her trip to Korea. Isn’t it so cool?? :D
We wound down the day at Fern & Kiwi (Clarke Quay) because their food is good, they have drinks and it was near the studio where we had the shoot.
Secondly, ok I haven’t watched Wong Fu’s 10th Anniversary video because 1) Like I said, I have been so busy 2) I am scared I will cry
I am a HUGE fan of all entreprenuers. Because I truly understand those days of not knowing where you’re heading, moments of doubts, periods of uncertainty, etc. Then you will cheer yourself on by giving yourself a pat on the back for every little step forward. Till you reach a tipping point.
I remember when some people knew I am a huge fan, they laughed at me. These narrow-minded people will never understand how it feels like to start something from nothing but heck, I LOVE THEM! Glad I know what kind of friends to keep and let go.
I love any people who chase their dreams, I love down-to-earth people, I love creative people! Nobody will understand what these three guys have gone through - only they, themselves, will know. And salute for being able to work together, tolerate and embrace one another for 10 years and going! How the heck did three guys work, live, hang out and play together without murdering one another?
I feel that as long as you are giving hope, giving love to the world doing what you love most and do best, YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL, regardless of status, money, or fame.
I hope Wong Fu continues to grow beyond their wildest dreams and let them continue to walk the talk that anything in life is indeed POSSIBLE! GIVE HOPE! GIVE LOVE!
Seriously, don’t you think it is THE MEANING you give behind a name? I mean, Wong Fu? Am sure even they, themselves, forget how Chinese it sounds sometimes. Asian pride!
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! SO NOT ASHAMED to be a fan.
CHEERS TO SABBYNANA! CHEERS TO ME! CHEERS TO WONG FU! CHEERS TO ALL DREAMCHASERS….. May we all continue to grow beyond our wildest dreams!!!
I am SUCH A NUTCASE. NO WONDER I AM FOREVER ALONE LOLOLOL
