dUCk in London!

March 10, 2017 • 5,523 views • 15 comments •  shares

Ducks (and swans) were in London!

But not just those ducks….

These dUCks too! 

Weeeeeee, we went for a trade show in London. We were invited to Pure London trade show and we were debating whether we should go. In pure business sense, we were not ready to enter the London market. We are already there on a small scale (dUCkies in London woot woot!!) but to actually distribute there and to open a store there, we would have to know A LOT MORE about the market. It’s not just about short-lived fame and shortcuts doing a stockist channel there, dUCk as you know is never like that. But if I want to enter a new market, I would have a lot of things to consider and think properly where I should channel my focus.

Dean is away on a business trip and as usual, I’ll be really down. When we are apart, I realise how much I love him and I think sometimes space is really good to rekindle the love especially when you even work together! So I’ll write an emo post about him then hehe.

Nowadays, he gets more recognised in public. As Dean himself, not as Syafiq Yusof baahhaha. Woohooooo #madeitinlife. And we always get stopped for photos now, even him (haha!). More and more people are taking photos of him or with him, and this means more girls too. A lot of these girls are young girls, some even in uni who take him as an inspiration. I sometimes tease him about it and he’ll get really red, since he’s really not used to this limelight (he usually avoids it, in fact!).

I’m going to talk about Mommy Guilt today.

Hang on, I wrote out a list about the things I feel guilty of as a mom.

*rolls out a long piece of paper cellotaped together across the living room all the way to the kitchen*

There, my list. How much time do you have?

Haha.

In all seriousness though, Mommy Guilt is a real thing, guys. Whether you’re a working mom, or a stay-at-home mom, or a single mom, or a stepmom or any kind of mom, you’re bound to have forms of guilt towards your children. Social media? Oh, they’re all perfect please. My kids’ photos look like this:

Mariam is fierce and persistent.

Tonight, Dean (her favourite person in the world ever whatever) had read a bedtime story to her over and over again. And as they finished, she would say “Again! Read book again!” Dean said “No, no that’s enough Mariam, we have to sleep now ok.” Mariam threw a fit and started saying Read a book sooooo many times. We even looked at each other, that look parents exchange to give each other moral support when you know one of you is about to give in… you know, that DONTYOUDAREGIVEINTOTHISCHILDDONTBEWEAK look.

A lot of the times I find out about entrepreneur societies, I get very skeptical. A lot of people like to self-claim that they’re successful but ironically enough, they have never revealed their numbers so no one really knows. It’s all about how much you can convince people that you’re legit. And quite frankly, I don’t like people who say straight out “Let me teach you the steps to be successful” when they haven’t told you what their credentials are other than being the founder of xyz company, and that he’s 20 years old. Umm…. So when we got the email from Endeavor 3 years ago, we were like oh great another entrepreneur network to boost up your ego and make you feel good about yourself.
