Hello Again!

I am back!! So sorry, my friends, it was a long time since my last post. I have been really busy the past few weeks, and being busy is good. Busy means...$$$ right?

I just want to say a big 'THANK YOU' to all my students and my online customers. Wah! So ke qi? (polite) Yes, very ke qi and do continue to support me ok?

I have also been spending my time learning and perfecting new designs, mainly in wire work and stitching. You can see some of them in my 'Single Project Workshop' at vivecreation.blogspot.com.

Do keep coming back to ViVE Story and ViVE Creation for updates!! See you!!

Beading - The Ice Breaker

Ever wondered how easy it is to talk to someone when you have common interests? That is what I enjoy about my job. (ok, it is not a job, it is a business, or is it a hobby? or a hobby that became a business...or...or...)

I always like it when I see two complete strangers hit off so well during my first lesson. After that, they will make it a point to attend my lesson together again. Some even decide to sign up additional classes together. Although I have high expectations of my students, I like to conduct my lesson in a cozy and friendly environment. So we can talk about anything under the sky, from the latest gossips to the new HDB rules.

Of course, some students need time to 'warm-up', but sharing the same passion about beading is certainly a great Ice Breaker.

Happy Teachers' Day

Happy Teachers' Day to ME!!

Yap, although I am not an MOE teacher, I am still a teacher right? I have the same passion, the same desire to impart knowledge, the same long working hours (haha).

What are the qualities of a good teacher? Patience (I have), Expert in what I do (Definitely!), Friendly (I am), Passion (YES!). Advertising for myself? (yes...just come and learn from me and see for yourself...ha)

While teachers had their Teachers Day dinner, I had Bak Kut Teh at Food Republic Vivo City, quite tasty, not bad, but still can't find one that taste like the one in KL, I missed that...
