What I have become just for this weekend, hehe:
Can't describe the mix emotions I had from this weekend. Dead tired talaga! Friday, I stayed solo-flight at the SuperSale Bazaar, and had a blast utilizing their wifi, and meeting a lot of friendly girls who are also readers and fellow bloggers. :) Met loads of friends also from all-walks-of-life, parang reunion lang! Saturday to Sunday, mom took charge of the SuperSale Bazaar, while I went to Global Pinoy for my stall with Bubbles. We were with DAS shoes...And it was my first time to meet the lovely team behind this powerful shoes brand...Ang babait nilang lahat. :) I love them! I also didn't expect to be friends kaagad with Tati, a fellow accessories maker and entrep. But we clicked instantly, ang komportable ko na kanya! Hehe!
Aside from meeting loads of old and new people, what stressed me was yesterday's bazaar experience in Rockwell. It wasn't doing well, and since I also have a stall in SuperSale, I planned to transfer the goods at around 7pm so my mom can still sell them in World Trade. I nicely approached the organizers, but the girl I encountered was super firm and mataray. I understand we are all tired, but pumintig talaga tenga ko nun binanatan ako ng "Ok you pay P5000 then you can go", not even glancing at me and just typing away sa kanyang laptop. Nahurt ako coz I was trying to explain my side nicely, and that it's also my Ate's birthday at ako lang sa pamilya ang wala sa World Trade. But she blurted those words, and I am not the confrontational type kaya nateateary eyed nako. Then she looked at me and even said "Bat ka iiyak?" It was like dealing with a big bully :(
The other organizer was nice to me though, and even sent me to their back-door area so I can calm myself. It was stressful and embarrasing uli, napaka crybaby ko talaga. Sorry for being emotional, and I understand their point, but they just can't talk to me like that, nahurt lang talaga ako. :(
Anyway, SuperSale sales, according to my supportive mom, was the best! In the end, after all the blood, sweat, and literal na tears, I am just happy for the experience. Sabi nga nila "Charge it to experience" hehehe. I know what to do and not to do na next time. Also, I am super inspired--imagine being surrounded by fellow entrepreneurs for 3 straight days. The passion, commitment, and creativity are contagious! :) Can't wait for my next bazaar... Happening next next week pa, November 19, at the Il Terrazo Mall in Tomas Morato... More days pa whew to prepare for another busy but happy selling stint!
Again, thank you sooo much to all the friends and family who visited me (or my mom in the SuperSale stall) in these affairs. I will forever be grateful for all of your love and moral support.
God bless YOU, I love YOU! :)
