Goal : to set up Sophie Paris Business Centre in Pasir Gudang

Down-the-road goal : To own a mini MPV - Alza within year 2012

1. My catalogue is my mobile shop - will bring the catalogue averywhere I go
2. Networking is important - will always keep starter kits for people to join as member
3. Approach to at least a person a day to ask them to buy (don't worry, they either say YES, or NO, so, I take my chances)
4. Back and forth to JB-PGU-Bukit Indah for admin purpose, eg get starter kit, catalogue, pass up registration form and so on)
5. Been to Sophie Seminar in KL which was not free
6. Assist downline (as well as not downline pun) on almost any matter
7. Short term loan from a colleague for my first purchase in Sophie
8. Keep as detailed as possible for info of spending and earning, downline's info and so on
9. Indirect promote Sophie in Facebook
10. Talk to family and friends and never failed to mention Sophie Paris in conversation

Success is not a destination, but it's a journey. The journey so far, is not always silky smooth. Sophie has only one flagstore in Malaysia; in Petaling Jaya that is. As a licensed MLM company, Sophie is complied to government's regulation that every registration in direct selling business should have an original and physical signed form. So, setiap form perlulah dihantar ke KL. Nak beli barang sekarang pun susah sebab sekarang ni "boutique" hanya di PJ. Walaupun boleh post, tapi ada extra cost (RM15 @ consignment - no matter how many you order), which resulting almost all my downline tak purchase apa2 pun. So, kalau nak beli in more justifiable cost (boleh share2 shipping cost), kenalah kirim2 orang. Tapi, for me, it's nothing much cos I have bunch of relatives yang stay in KL. Not only that, limitation to internet access sedikit sebanyak restricted me to expand my business. Tu yang kalau boleh nak invest in Tablet. In addition to that, if let's say I nak pergi KL purposely hanya ke Sophie, memang agak payah - sebab my car does not support long distance travelling. That's why Alza comes into picture, anyway.
Bukan setakat itu, ada saja dugaan muncul sebelum ini. However, I acknowledged them as "what doesn't kill, makes me stronger".

I think I've got everything for me to gear up my own business now! Wish me luck and let's treasure the journey together!

On last note, how are you? ---- SOPHIE-LING GOOD!! SOPHIE-LING GREAT!!

My first wallet - more to come, very soon!


Mama, hasn't lost her touch.... just yet!

She made me a marble cake just now, weee!!!!

And the best part was, when me and Mama in the kitchen menggodak adunan kek, together-GETHER! It was like we were having a girls' night-out together at our own house; in our own kitchen; doing what I love the most - baking....

Though it was just a marble cake (a pretty decent cake I must say, compared to number of cakes I made lately), but hey, my mum made it. And that's IT, a marble cake is enough to make me smile from ear to ear. Goodness, word just couldn't describe how happy she makes me feel right now.

God, the next time when we have that mother-daughter arguments, I will remember this moment (and the taste of it) and I will let her win, no matter how wrong she is.

Anyways, here are some tasteful pictures , taken immediately, freshly out from the oven:

I tell you guys, the pictures don't do much justice to it. In addition, blame me for the dull colouring as I told her not to put too much colour to it. Sorry!

Jeng3x... here's the secret recipe, finally revealed (chewah!)

3/4 from 250g of salted butter (she used Buttercup ONLY, how modest!)
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of tepung gandum 1Malaysia
1tbs vanilla essence
4 eggs (the cheapest grade in market)
secubit garam
1 tsb baking powder
Warna merah and dark cocoa for colouring

*Side note : she didn't even measure cautiously, main agak2 je dowh!

That's it! Prepare it like the usual cake, bake it at 160 degrees for 40 minutes (api bawah sahaja, letak in the middle, bottom letak tray - as advised by Cik Dilla kita) and voila....

Owh, I forgot the secret recipe - love, tender, care from a mum to her daughter!

Thanks Mama, love you mucho! #muahmuah

p/s: You can tell the cake is yummy when you finished the whole slice without even knowing it!
p/s/s : Now you know where I got the talent, don't you! It's in the blood. It's in the blood bebehh! (uwek, talent la sangat!)

Ok, I'm off to sleep - nice supper for my belly!


Jiwa Taiko (2012)

Jangan tanya kenapa, tapi tiba2 ter-bump into Jiwa Taiko kat Youtube. Best gila movie ni, nyesal tengok secara haram, patutnya pi panggung, tak pun beli kat Astro First kan? Serious, best!

(lama tak update blog. Malah, entry cake tu pun tak dicontinue pun, or is it discontinued? Tup2 cerita pasal Jiwa Taiko? Serious ke vice versa? )

Ok, I don't want to be a spoiler, macam spoiler kereta Myvi tu. Jadi, pengharapan nak tau jalan cerita memang yang ado! Saya nak cerita tentang aksi, morale and experience throughout the movie, mungkin sentuh sedikit pasal plot and something in between. Tapi, tak berani nak go into details, sebab saya admit saya bukan budak ASWARA. Obviously, this is a real action movie (finally) made by a Malaysian to fellow Malaysians. Filem Melayu untuk orang Malaysia. Hanya ada 2 scene solat, but other than that, you wouldn't have a clue that this a Malay movie if not for the language or the stars. A little correction though - kalau tengok pada pelakon, and buat voice over Bahasa Inggeris, mesti orang akan ingat ini adalah movie from Thailand, the Phillipines, or maybe from Indonesia. Dari Malaysia? - will be the last thing in mind! Dahlah, without further ado, let's begin with some of qualities presented and morale potrayed in this magnificient movie.

Ganas (in a positive way)
Wow. This movie is like Bruce Lee meets The Transporter meets Van Diesel then, on the way, meets pulak dengan Jackie Chan, say hi-hi bye-bye dengan Sivaji (The Boss). The sound effects were everything in place. It is intriguing to watch every scene that has the butt-kicking action in it. So real! And, similar to Hollywood action movies, there are no guns involved, strictly butt-kicking, keeping it real, bro! Owh, extra point for women-can-fight-too!

Seductivity (yet another controversial point, but read it in a positive way, please)
Alamak, I didn't mean to put it in a wrong way or something, and it's not about promoting anything sexual. Ala, if they are in love, a kiss won't kill the movie right? And the raba2 thing, and the smooching here and there - ala, all films in the world is doing it anyway, no harm what. It's not a taboo any longer what. Trust me, the scenes were not representing seduction, but just potraying what's real, showing how passionate they are, in love. Though, some people said sex sells, but this movie does not focus on that aspect. Because there were only about a couple of scenes je, like maybe 6 scenes, about that lah (look who's counting!!).

There are two sides of value here, good and bad. The bad one is when the gangster tu still looking for his long lost friend yang dah insaf and still persuade him to rejoice gituh dalam bisnes gangster-menggengster ni. It's bad but it happens in real life, dowh. The good one is the sacred friendship between members of Jiwa Cinta. In fact, they were willing to sacrifice love and pass boyfriend kat saeng dia sebab saeng dia cinta mati dengan balak dia (ups, spoiler). Not only that (spoiler incoming!) walaupun terlanjur, secret admirer dia sanggup promise jaga dia sampai bila2 walaupun dia sekarang tengah dok bercintan dengan ex-boyfriend kawan dia (eh, lost track - siapa dia?)

Did I mention that there were 2 scenes of sembahyang kan? And, at the end, Alhamdullillah, everything works well, kan? "Dalam sekelip mata, Tuhan anugerahkan kami seorang anak kecil dan merubah seluruh hidup kami menjadi manusia bertanggungjawab..." - voice over from Remy Ishak at the very end of the movie (so sexxxyyyy)

Sesungguhnya, semua ini hanyalah sarcasm. Kalau rasa nak mendalami kehidupan "real" seorang taiko, tengoklah. Who knows, it might be really happening to some people somewhere over the world, kan?
