Rush DaysSeptember 24, 2014
I was in Tokyo for a business meeting last week, and this time I could only stay there for a week. It was the shortest trip I have ever had in Tokyo, as usually it would be 2-4 weeks. But I have many jobs in Jakarta, including my new Starry Light brand that has to be taken care of, that's why I rushed back to Jakarta again
Hmm? What business you ask?
Well, I know technically I am still a blogger, so it is hard to imagine that a blogger has to attend meeting, moreover overseas business trip
But well yes, a blogger has meetings, in fact, a LOT, to talk about future collaborations and what I and the clients could do in the future. Sometimes the meetings last for months, and sometimes it gives great result of partnership while some might stop in the middle
This time I had some business with a company in Japan for a promotional activity in Indonesia. So they flied me to Tokyo for a meeting!
Wore all brand new products for meeting of course. The meeting lasts for 3 days and the project should start soon. I can't wait!
Meanwhile, here's my OOTD info
Dress : Cloth Inc
Shoes : GYDA
Bag : Michael Kors
I did dye my hair into platinum blonde before I went to Bali, and also put on some clip on extension that I dyed altogether to match the hair colour. I just love myself most with long blonde hair! Also my fringe has gotten longer than before. Turning 22 with more mature hair style really gives my look a more adult feeling, I guess!
In fact, I have a lot of jobs and meetings that I can't discuss here. Even I don't think any of my friends really understand what I have been doing. I just take any opportunities that jump into my face, and as long as I can do it and it's a good job, then I see no reason why I don't
Besides being a blogger, promoting Japanese Culture as Kawaii Leader, owning my own brand, I also help some companies in Japan to enter Indonesia market, and also help managing some social activities, and work on certain projects about advertising - social marketing - fashion - beauty - japanese culture, and such
I do believe there's no such quite right job title for me, so I call myself "entrepreneur" instead..
I do not work from 9-5 like most of people. I might be able to take long leave, but being one also gives full responsibility, such as when I was in Bali for holiday, I would leave my friends and lock myself in the room to take care of some businesses that I have. Busy handling phones and emails, and all the stuffs. My friends already know and understand about it, but I feel they're a little bit annoyed that I prioritise my work the most. They feel if it's holiday, then it's a total holiday with no job at all
Unfortunately it doesn't happen to entrepreneur. Once you stop working, then the money won't flow, and the business will collapse.
It's different than being an office worker when you can really stop doing job during holiday, and still get paid leave. Your office that you work for, is not your own property. While for me, I manage my own business and stuffs
When I was young, I used to think that the owners and the top people were very lucky. They could take leave while the people work, and they only need to sign and meet people. Once I enter this kind of thing, I do realise that the upper people hold the most responsibilities and less time to have fun, even for sleep
But I can't complain much because well, I do enjoy my job!! SO MUCH!
I get paid for doing what I love, and what I can, and also learn about many new things and experience lot of stuffs. Even though it's tiring and most of the people can't imagine what my job looks like [not even my best friend really understand it, I guess not even my mother], I just feel that I have the best job that suits me the most!
And anyway, I got this Michael Kors Small Jet Set Travel Tote from Shopbop again! Recently I have been loving Michael Kors a lot, especially Shopbop is my most favourite online shop because they offer free shipping worldwide, and they sell authentic branded items, with much much cheaper price than Jakarta. I used to think that branded bags would be out of my context since it's crazily expensive here, but turns out it's not that expensive overseas
Now I know why many people say "I buy this overseas as it's cheaper"
I used to think Indonesia is cheap but no, branded items are soooooo expensive so I prefer to eat it overseas. You know the bag itself is only 228$ la overseas, and shopbop offers the same price but with free shipping!!
Such a bargain right!
With MK logo attached on the bag. This bag is such a simple yet versatile, and timeless. My mom really likes this bag when I brought this home. I don't care if my clothes are cheap, but I would love to have branded bags and shoes because it really shows whether it is a good one or no. And a good bag and shoes are stronger, sturdier, and esp for the shoes it is much more comfortable!
I'm such a sucker for bags and shoes!
How about you?
