Feels like work...

For the past one week, I can finally feel what it's like to be part of the production team. In my factory, there's this special department that only handle the Wedding/Corporate/Special orders where a lot of creativity and wrapping skills are needed. I had so many orders on gifts for Raya and there's no one free to help me to complete the orders and so guess what I did? I went to the floor and pack the gifts myself.

I've just designed a new range of chocolates consisting of very simple chocolate blocks that are wrapped in colourful embossed matte foil wrappers. The Patchi chocolates are very famous for this type of wrappings but their chocolate in my opinion is lack of quality and so what I did was to improvise on that and come out with my own version of wrapped chocolates!


The Spiral Plate (selling at Tangs Pavilion at RM49)
All snapped up very quickly!


A gift for a very important client which I would deliver tomorrow.


Another gift I made.


Testing....


Since no one bothered me, I had a free hand on creating anything I liked and so I came out with all these gift arrangements to be sold and sent to my clients for Raya. If I get the thumbs up, I'll make it a standard item in the corporate/personal gift list!

Honestly, it was quite interesting and fun at first but it gets kinda boring after a while especially after making more than 5 sets of the same thing! Now I truly understand the meaning of work fatigue. And my production workers also praised me for helping them out because I have been staying late until 7pm on somedays to help them. On normal days, I get to go home at 5pm on the dot! I am truly one person whom does not believe in working late to impress.

Let's just say that work will never be finished and there will always be more work tomorrow and so as long as I complete my work within the dateline, I don't care. Actually, the factory closes at 5pm or latest 6pm and so I can't stay back and work late! Lol...
