Planning Parties to Properties

A Thai-Chinese in the Heart of Singapore
I'm a mix of two worlds. A Thai-Chinese, who love both Singapore and Thailand. At the same time, I hold Thailand close to my heart with its traditions, delicious food, and friendly people.
Living in Singapore when I was still a kid, wasn't always easy. I remember I was so afraid to speak because I only knew how to converse in Thai back then, and English was a foreign language to me.
Being the only child in my family has made me very independent and learned to do things on my own and make my own decisions.
I started my event management business for more than a decade or to be exact 12 long years, oh dear whenever I share this with people around me, I feel so old haha! It has been an incredible journey filled with numerous highs and lows.
Like many other businesses, there's always challenges. From learning the ins and outs of event planning to building a client base from scratch. But each hurdle became a lesson, and every milestone boosted my confidence.
One of the building blocks of my business has been the positive feedback and word-of-mouth recommendations from satisfied clients.
Over time, I expanded the scope of my event management services to cover a wide range of events, from corporate events to private celebrations. This diversification brought fresh opportunities and challenges, keeping me engaged and motivated.
Reflecting on the journey, I realize that time has brought not just age but also wisdom and an appreciation for the experiences I have gained throughout the years. The event management world is ever-changing, but it's a world I wouldn't trade for anything.
The Solo Traveler
Besides work, I would reward myself to a solo trip. It's a break from the hectic work and a chance to disconnect and focusing on myself.
Hiking in the mountains is another thing I love to do. It makes me feel closer to nature and gives me a sense of freedom.
Whenever I'm on the mountain, I find it so beautiful and peaceful, I can breathe fresh air and enjoy the open spaces. It makes me feel the world is really big! While climbing mountain, it also pushes me to be my best.
Reaching the top of a mountain makes me feel proud and of course It is a reminder to me that if I work hard, persevere, I can achieve anything in life.
Most of my friends would ask:
Why do I Love Traveling Alone?
In a world where most people like fancy things like expensive bags, cars, or watches... I'm more passionate about something else... having experiences, especially when I travel alone.
It's not that I don't like luxury items, but if I have to choose, I'll always pick experiences over luxury. You know experiences, make the heart rich in a way that things can't. They are moments that I carry with me, which will enrich my life and shaping my perspective.
Solo travel is full of surprises. It's a lot like how I approach my career, open to new challenges and opportunities as they come. I can turn left instead of right, explore unknown places, meet interesting people, and create my adventure as I go along.
Being alone in a new place also makes me think deeply. It's a lot like my career, where I often have to make important decisions.
I find comfort in the quiet moments, which help me connect with my inner self. This self-awareness helps me stay true to my free spirit not only in my travels but also in my career choices.
So, why did I decide to start working in real estate after all this time in events?
It's about wanting to offer more to my clients and explore new horizons.
Real estate isn't a total departure from events, it is a way to blend creativity with helping people find the perfect place to live or invest. Just like I design amazing event settings, I now help clients find the ideal living spaces.
This shift isn't about leaving my event work behind but expanding my services to give clients more choices. Buying a home is a big event, and I want to assist my clients in finding the right space for their own special moments and memories.
My journey into real estate is a way to offer more to my clients, providing them with a broader range of services. It's a thrilling new adventure, full of fresh challenges and chances to learn and grow.
My work isn't easy. It's tough, fast, and full of surprises. But I love it that way. I enjoy taking on life's challenges and pushing myself to do more. The harder it is, the more I like it.
Balancing Two Demanding Jobs:
How I Do It
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.
Here's what I do:
I figure out which tasks are most important in both careers. This helps me spend my time and energy where it's needed most, so I can meet my deadlines and do a great job.
I'm good at finding other people to help me. This could mean hiring more event staff or asking real estate pros for help. It's important to have a reliable support system.
Having two busy jobs can be tough on my body and mind. So, I make sure to exercise and take time off to relax. Without taking care of myself, I couldn't handle this busy life.
Learning to Say No:
It's tempting to say yes to every opportunity that comes my way, but sometimes, it's better to say no when I'm already too busy.
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.
