Fashion Figure Drawing

3 interview lining up for me tomorrow.

And I will be attending Fashion Figure Drawing at NAFA next week.
Its a short course with only 6 lessons, teaches a beginner on how to draw figures that are used to represent apparel designs.

And after the end of the course I will continue to attend Apparel Design at NAFA as well.

There used to be Part Time Diploma in Fashion Design at NAFA, but it seems that they have outdated it over the years.

Its never cheap to learn Fashion Design in Singapore.

Having accounting as full-time job while juggling with my passion of design, I hope it will work out somehow. And still on the lookout for locals willing to teach me intermediate dressmaking skills. Lastly, I hope to be able to send in a portfolio for Star Creation 2012. Winners: a full scholarship in Fashion Design.

Choosing My Flat

The brochures from HDB arrived today, 1 thick envelope.

20th November will be paying the option fee and selecting my unit. 4 months later have to pay downpayment of 5% to 10%.

I hope I get more grant out of this, so I can pay zero cash. Prolly my CPF savings of $10k+ will be wiped all all.

Choices: Balcony in the living room or bedroom? Units nearer to the waterfront or LRT station?

By the way the unit we are aiming is like $440k worth, have to start the financial planning for monthly instalment and renovation fund.

Now my mind is filled with methods to earn money. The thought of setting up a professional hand-sewn clothing store appears again. The thought of freelancing accounting services to SMEs appears again. The thought of getting a permanent job as an Accounts related position appears again.

Well Im going for interviews from morning to evening on coming Thursday and Friday. Im confident of being proposed for at least 1 position. But, is a payslip of $2000 going to make me satisfied?

I do not want a normal life like everyone, work and eat and sleep.
I look forward to something spice and sugar, other than daily routine work.

Do not be amazed if one day I shall open a clothing store :)

Btw, I love my future home, lots of waters in the area, and being neighbours with Quek Quek !

Mia-ing, again...

These few months was hectic for me...
Playing games was the only consolation I had...

And I didnt even have the mind-space to make new creations for sewing.

I was still constantly updating myself with trends and sewing techniques but seeing how messy was my bedroom, I dont have the mood to sit down and cut fabrics.

Alot of changes over the months:

1. I was out for job-hunting, went to tons of interviews.

2. I quit a job on the first day, nice name its called 'accounts cum marketing executive', but in actual fact, they want me to help their sales and marketing team to hard-sell beauty packages and salon products (wtffff?)

3. I found a job again, and amazingly, it was a job that I rejected almost a year ago. Dammit I was so regretful that I rejected it that time, blame it on my cock-eyes.

4. This time I can finally be an 'Accounts Executive' in an accounting firm, no more assistant role, no more being an office girl! hehe~

5. I had breakouts all over my face, I wonder where's the problem. Hormonal changes? Too much germs on my phone and bedsheet? Too much junk food?

6. Timely flood in Bangkok made us cancelled our Praying-and-Donating trip of Bangkok. Kiss goodbye to SIA flight, and SIA plane food (I was sooooo looking forward to it zzzzz~)

7. Balloted for Punggol in BTO Sept, and we got a number within the flat supply! Im moving to Punggol in 4 years' time weeeeee~

8. I decided to self-study for most of the modules of ACCA, meaning no actual lessons, just self-study at home. Determination? I need to search for it soon.

Still in a mess, Im picking up the pieces slowly.
