Party planning my greatest life choice !
I graduated with a distinction in design and there was just soo much I learnt from the course and all the years of self learning from childhood interest in arts I had . Having studied in renowned art schools like Nanyang academy of fine arts ,Singapore and Raffles College of Design and commerce, affiliated to Sydney , prepared me to become a business owner of an event planning company in Singapore and I wouldn’t think that anything else could feel so satisfying and rewarding . If there was one profession that did justice to all the artistic and design knowledge I gained , it was party and event planning . From costume design to decorations to performing as a Facepainting /caricature/henna artist to being an art instructor at art and craft workshops for team building events , evening planning gave me the perfect opportunity to do it all ! I could put all my ideas together and do everything I would love doing as a hobby and yet let it be my mainstream profession too ! Haha 🙂
I am so proud of what I’m doing today and the fact that clients love the attention that I give to the fine details of my events to customize it and make it so unique and special gives me so much contentment . I wake up thinking about how exciting party planning is going to be for my upcoming event and go to bed feeling accomplished when I get appreciation for all the works I do . I must say I have been extremely blessed and lucky to have chosen this profession and love it like my little own baby . It’s so precious and dear to me ! I am so thankful to my mother , who encouraged me in every phase and let me be a free bird and trust in me . Although I lost her 3 years ago , she lives through my passion today and continues being my strength . In fact even when I met my boyfriend (now husband) when she was alive , there was just one question she asked me .. And that was if he was going to be supportive of my career choices? She was so happy to know that he loved me so much that he helped so much in my work too and took a lot of weight off my shoulder in many ways ! Sometimes it’s so important to make life choices and have yourself surrounded with all the positivity you need . I can’t thank my sister enough , and rest of the family and friends, and all my mentors through the schooling years too for being encouraging always . It really has meant a lot to me !They have been the biggest confidence boosters in my life !
I constantly train myself even today , to get better and better and Keep trying to be the best in what I love doing and the journey is still on !! Loving this ride in life and choose to be on no other 🙂
Perhaps if I were to summarize everything in a few words , it’s this picture that says it all .
