Busy Monday

Today was a very tiring day for me. First day of the school holidays so woke up after 11am, later than my usual 10.30am time. Got appointment at 2pm and needed to leave the house by 1pm so rushed the kids up to get ready and all. Switched on my phone to see my Talent Manager telling me that she won’t be able to accompany me to my appointment coz she on EL. Ok lah no problem coz my appointment oso is just a follow-up for something I did earlier and will take half an hour max. 

Then I know I have another appointment later with her and client in the evening that we haven’t finalized on place and time. Ding ding dang dang and a thousand of whatsapp messages later, suddenly it was decided that the venue is MY HOUSE! 


I wasn’t exaggerating on the floor part. My house is usually in a total mess you see. You are not allowed to come without prior appointment. I will never let you in. You won’t be able to see the floor and my dining table will usually be covered with stuffs that you can’t actually see the table top >_< So I was trying to buy time by asking them to come over on Wednesday lah. At least I have the entire of Tuesday to clean my house but you know the advertising industry? They always want it to be done YESTERDAY. So I had no choice but to agree eventhough I have to rush out for my 2pm appointment soon. 

By the time my 2pm appointment is done and rushed back home, it was already 4pm. Ayden was already sleepy and ready for his afternoon nap but I placed him in his cot so I can clear the house a little bit. 

An hour later my house is starting to look like a home -.- But can you spot Ayden? Damn sleepy dy that boy. Rubbing his eyes so pitifully there. I finally let him nap for a while before I continue mopping and cleaning up the remaining mess in the house. 


8.30pm these two Nuffies landed in my house. Throughout my 6 years with Nuffnang, this is the first time Nuffies visited me at home. That girl with the blue bird so hardworking, even after office hours still wanna promote Churp Churp mascot :P

But Ayden very no manners leh, people busy wanna take picture, he so steady go parking his backside in front of the camera there like that. 

Soon after, the crew all arrived and immediately got working, setting up the equipment and all. 


See Bunny, my Talent Manager (the one with the red arrow)? Sitting there flipping her hair maciam she is in a massage chair commercial shoot or something. The truth is she must be kepanasan giler coz my aircond rosak not working :(

And look at Jack (the guy in red, or pink?). He’s so tall he’ll hit the ceiling fan should he stretch his arms that’s why he’s standing there like that keeping his arms safely tucked at the back so that he won’t accidentally fling it and have it tercampak on the dining table and served as Roasted Arm. Yucks >_<

Submerryn interview

Camera rolling. Q&A session. It was so hot with that light flashing on my face, I kept thinking how nice if I can eat those oranges!

Ethan interview

They interviewed Ethan too. One of the question went like this:

Q: Do you like sweets?
A: I dare not eat too much sweets
Q: Why?

A: Coz I am afraid my teeth will fall off.
Q: You do know your teeth WILL fall off right? Your milk teeth and all?

*LoL* It got Ethan thinking for a while there. Haha. 

At 10 plus it was all done. The crew packed up and everyone left. I swept and mopped the floor again and so ready to crash on my bed coz I am that tired but here I am at 1.30am still blogging because I can’t sleep… @_@
