The Dual Life of Your Event Planner and Real Estate Agent

Who is Anna Thng?

I've never worked in a corporate job. Instead, I'm chasing my dreams of working for myself. My family didn't have much money when I was growing up, so I've always been pretty independent. I appreciate my family for teaching me to be disciplined, even though it wasn't always easy. When I was in school, I worked a few different jobs so that I could get the things I wanted on my own.

I'm like a mix of two worlds. My family is Thai-Chinese, and I really like both Singapore and Thailand. Thailand means a lot to me because of its cultures, yummy food, and of course the people. 

Being an event planner has always made me happy and it’s indeed a fulfilling one I can say. But when COVID-19 came, events and entertainment industry were badly affected, and I wasn't sure what to do. I thought about what I liked most about my job, and it was planning. So, I decided to try something new and become a real estate agent.

Even though it's different from planning events, real estate lets me keep using my planning skills. I help people find homes they love, which is a big deal. It's all about understanding what they need and showing them places until they find the right one.

It's been a change, but I'm excited about it. I like helping people, whether it's planning events or finding them a home.

My Love for Events

I really love my job, especially planning events. My passion for it has only gotten stronger over time. But it's not always easy. In fact, every jobs has its own challenges.

However, event planning comes with a lot of challenges, and most of it are unpredictable though. haha. I have to deal with different clients who all want different things, last minute changes, work with vendors, and lead a team. It takes a whole lot of hard work and commitment to succeed in this career.

Even though event planning can be stressful, I'm still excited about it. I love the feeling of bringing people together to make amazing memories. When I tell people I'm an event organizer, they often seem impressed but also worried about how hard it might be.

Working in event planning often means many late nights. But at the end of the day, what makes it all worth it is the feeling of satisfaction. Seeing everything come together smoothly after working hard for months feels really good. It shows our dedication to making every event special and memorable.

But what really motivates me in this job is how much I love it. It's incredibly satisfying to see my clients' dreams become reality. Knowing that I've helped make an event special and memorable is a feeling like no other. And when clients express their gratitude, it only makes me more passionate and determined to keep going.

Event planning needs careful attention to detail and careful planning, but it's also a chance to be really creative and come up with new ideas. Everyday is never a dull moment.

I have organized all kinds of events, from big corporate parties, private parties to concerts. If you need someone to plan for your upcoming events / parties, let me know if I can help you.  You may reach me here:


My Love For Solo Travels

Traveling alone gives the freedom to plan your own journey and do what you like without any limitations.

When I went on my first trip alone, it was because my friends couldn't join me. Going by myself made me feel more independent, and I enjoyed being in control of what I did. I still remember that my first solo trip was to Taiwan! After that trip, I fell in love with traveling alone! And then there’s second, third, fourth and so on….

Other places I’ve experienced as a solo traveller include countries like Australia, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia… and I am planning to go somewhere further, perhaps more western countries?

However, the media often portrays solo female travel in a negative light, but I want to change that. I want to help other women see the good side of traveling alone and live life how they want. There are lots of good things about traveling solo, especially when you travel alone, you will get to meet people from all walks of life, thankfully the people I met during my trips were mostly nice people and till know we still keep in touch.

Ladies, you should give solo travel a shot at least once in your life. You will definitely love it!

Most of my trips are to popular places in Asia that are easy to get to and don't cost a lot. But I always try to find interesting places that aren't as crowded, either in different countries or hidden spots in big cities.

If you have any cool suggestions for things to do in the countries I visited, please leave a comment on my posts! I would love to hear from you.

My Love For Real Estate

While my love for travel remains strong, the bulk of my days are dedicated to working in Singapore. I find fulfilment in staying occupied and productive. Despite Singapore's limited size and relatively few options for exploration compared to larger countries, I am engaged in managing various responsibilities, such as organizing events and assisting clients in the realm of real estate. 

These tasks keep me occupied throughout the day. However, during my spare time, I prioritize my health and well-being by going to the gym. It's a time for me to unwind, stay fit, and recharge for the demands of work and life in Singapore.

People often ask me, "How do you handle having two very busy jobs - event planning and real estate?"

It's a fair question because both jobs can be quite stressful and need a lot of attention. Managing my life with these two careers isn't easy, but I've figured out some ways to make it work.

Event planning and real estate are like two different worlds with their own sets of problems and things to do. Event planning means I have to be super organized, pay close attention to details, and handle many things at the same time. It often means working long hours and being completely focused.

On the other hand, real estate is all about the property market, pricing, negotiations, and meeting with clients. It's fast-paced and always changing, and the choices I make in real estate can affect people's lives for a long time.

So, how do I keep these two demanding jobs from wearing me out?

It's all about managing my time well and setting priorities.

Why I go into international property market?

For a few important reasons:

First, it's full of different opportunities and challenges that keep me excited and motivated. Each country has its own unique cultures, laws, and ways of doing business in real estate. This diversity makes me eager to explore new places and learn more about the real estate world.

Also, I love helping people make their dreams of owning property in another country come true. Buying a home abroad is a big deal for many people, it could be as a holiday home, an investment opportunity, or even a new place to live permanently.

Guiding clients through this process and seeing how happy it makes them is really rewarding for me.

On top of that, I believe that investing in international property can be a smart way to build wealth over time. By helping you find great properties in growing markets, I can help you secure your financial future. Plus, investing in different countries can help spread out the risks of economic ups and downs in any one place.

Working in international property also lets me learn more about different cultures and how they affect the property market. Interacting with clients from all over the world gives me valuable insights that help me do my job better and become a more well rounded real estate professional.

Overall, my passion for the international property market comes from a mix of wanting to help people reach their goals, believing in the potential for financial success, and also owning my first overseas property soon!

In the end, it's about finding balance in the craziness.

Yes, event planning and real estate are tough jobs, but they are also very rewarding. It's all about passion, not giving up when things get tough, and wanting to be excellent in both areas. It's not always easy, but it's very fulfilling, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

My Love For Content Creation

I started content creation almost accidentally, that was during the COVID-19 period where we were all stuck at home right, nothing much to do so I started to create contents.

But as I improved my photography skills and explored different ways to express myself, I discovered the joy of creating content that could entertain, inspire, and connect with others.

What I enjoy most about content creation is the chance to tell stories and share interesting day to day happenings through pictures and words. 

Whether it's sharing my travels, discussing topics I care about, or capturing everyday moments, each piece of content allows me to evoke emotions and start conversations.

Photography holds a special place in my heart. It allows me to freeze moments in time and preserve memories. There's something magical about capturing a scene, playing with light, and creating an image that tells a story.

And why do I love photography?

Well, aside from the self-indulgence of getting lost behind the lens most of the time.. haha, joke aside.. it's the sheer joy of being able to capture the beauty of the world around me and share it with others.

I'm also incredibly thankful for the brands that have trusted and engaged me to create interesting campaigns.

Collaborating with these brands has been a rewarding experience, allowing me to apply my creativity and passion to meaningful projects.

My passion for content creation and photography drives me to keep learning and trying new things. Whether I'm experimenting with techniques, exploring different styles, or collaborating with other creators, I'm always looking for ways to grow and improve.

Ultimately, content creation is more than just a hobby or job, it's a way of life. It's about being creative, authentic, and using my voice and images to make a positive impact on the world.
