It’s just one of those nights. Everyone’s fast asleep but I just can’t seem to get some shut eye.

So many things have happened in my life and I’m still finding time to blog about them. By the time I get round to it, it’s old news already and I can’t be bothered anymore! Haha.

Anyway, one of them is work. After our honeymoon in Pangkor, Dean and I have gone straight to work and even sidelining our plans to settle in the new home etc. Because Raya season is the peak month for us throughout the whole year and we know we have to work work work. After Raya, Insyaallah we can take it a bit easier and I can start focusing on being a Stepford wife.

Just recently, we received huge rezeki from God and it will lead to a hugeeee expansion of FV. Dean’s sleeping now, even snoring a little, but as I look at him, I can’t help but feel proud. The two of us have come this far, going through ups and downs together as young entrepreneurs. Late nights, tears, blood, sweat… all shared with the team together. Having to learn new things everyday, having to put ourselves out there regardless whether we’re prepared or not, having to manage our tasks, having to combat huge international competitors. And yet, we’re still here and going strong.

Sometimes I just can’t believe that we’re here. God has been so kind to us.

Oh, also! Thank you so so so so much for those of you who made it to FV’s pop-up store last weekend. It was really fun, we played Raya songs full blast, we gave away dates and FV raya packets as part of our doorgift, we met with a lot of moms, husbands and daughters and we launched brands we did not yet have on the website.

12 – 4 pm — we were on our toes nonstop! Customers kept coming in and out constantly. Well done FV team for the awesome teamwork and hardwork! Working on Sunday and then resume on Monday as per normal without any complaints. You guys are the best.

We were all in Raya mode so most of us wore Raya-ish clothes.

Ola earrings, Radzuan Radziwill top and PU3 skirt.

I received a lot of suggestions that FV should do more of these pop-up stores since we have uber loyal customers who just want to come (and hang with the awesome FV team hehe). What do you guys think ok that idea? If we had it on weekdays at night, would you come after work? I’m trying to think to figure out a good system for our dearest FV customers.
