It’s been so long since I did a proper blog post with updates on happenings and what not! Been mulling over my heartbreak, done enough thinking and reflections, talking to my very lovely, beloved friends and I’m on my way to the next chapter of my life. It’s not easy to move on, but I have to.
Jipaban.com is launching next Monday, 10th of May 2010!!! All our hard work’s finally paying off and we have successfully invited over 40 retailers on board with us! I’m moving towards the 3rd and 4th quarter of my internship and my stint with Jipaban, and enjoying every minute of it because I’m finally seeing the results and that is a real motivation to keep me going.
The thought of giving up never crossed my mind, but at times the fight is so difficult it’s even hard to breathe.
Sometimes as you work it’s so easy to get lost in the momentum and hasty pace of it all that you’ve lost track of how much time and effort you’ve spent in it.
But an sms I got from my senior Eileen this morning made me teared. Plus I was totally emo-ing to Westlife ballads while getting ready for work…
“…Melissa! I just read on Velda’s blog that the black toga she is going to release soon is going to be launched on Jipaban! I’m so proud of you girl! I guess Jipaban will be a big hit and I know you poured your heart into it Well done Mel! ”
So awesomely sweet of her )))))
Thank God for friends and girlfriends like her!

WAREHOUSE Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Show at The Audi Fashion Festival
Fiona (Wifeband) and I at the Audi Fashion Festival!
We were ushered into the event hall outside Ngee Ann City where crowds of audience were already seated! The whole atmosphere was really exciting as we dug into our goodie bags and waited for the show to begin!
Yummy sandwiches and milkshake at JAMS Cafe, Prologue after the event!
Love my Wifeband!
Chicago The Musical
Eric and I went to watch Chicago at the Esplanade on the evening of his birthday! It was so awesome and I absolutely love the powerful vocals of the singers and actors!
Synopsis from Sistic:
With over a decade of decadence on Broadway and London’s West End, CHICAGO will return to Singapore from 16 April to 9 May 2010, for a strictly limited season at the Esplanade Theatre with an all-star cast including the award-winning Sharon Millerchip (Roxie Hart) and Craig McLachlan (Billy Flynn).
CHICAGO tells the tale of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who dreams of heading in Vaudeville, kills her lover, then convinces her husband to come up with the $5000 to hire Chicago’s shrewdest, smooth-talking lawyer, Billy Flynn.
CHICAGO has played over 15,000 performances worldwide, has captivated an estimated 17 million people around the world, and has been honoured with 6 Tony Awards®, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® Award and thousands of standing ovations. So whether you have seen the Academy Award® winning film and want to experience the show live on stage or whether you have seen it before and want to recapture the magic, CHICAGO always delivers with ‘sizzle and timeless class’ – TIME OUT.
