The whole day yesterday, I spent like 95% of the time in bed.
Was down with terrible flu, fever and bodyache.
Luckily E was on leave so I didn't feel bad about Nyla being left on her own.

She's sucha gem I tell you, my Nurse Nyla.
 She sponged me using her panties. Yeap.

"Mommy, cannot find handkerchief la. I use my suar dalam k. I haven't use one. So it's clean."

In sickness, also can make me laugh.
She checked my temperature every few minutes.
Basically she applied whatever I did to her when she was sick to me.

Alhamdullilah, I'm wayyyyyyy better now.
Up and about already.
Just did 2 loads of laundry.
Perhaps gonna vacuum and mop later because we just did reno works to our balcony.
Yeap, bye bye to our badly damaged laminated balcony flooring!
Sure feels good not to wake up to those unsightly gaps la!

Thing is the agencies I have been going to..the admin charges are pretty high. 
That and the biodatas of the potential helpers are very bleargh! :(
Basically I am looking for a married with a kid helper....Kampong kind also never mind cos can train mah.

I'm also at the moment settling tuition.

Attention to my PRIMARY 1 clients whom I have touched base with last month, if you receive no news from me today, pls sms me at 97248866.
 Primary 1 tuition will commence next Saturday 5th January 2013. :)

My Primary 2 mommies, later check our group whatsapp!

This year I will only be taking one class of Primary 6 Foundation.
I have 2 more spaces. :)

Moving on to real estate.

Just yesterday I had 3 enquiries.
One wanna upgrade, another wanna downgrade and another wanna buy a private property.

That's why today no choice but to get well!
Work is clearly waiting for me.

Anyway last Saturday's real estate work was a bad bad bad experience for me.

Whatever that you do, abide by the rules.
Owners, if you haven't satisfied the M.O.P, you cannot rent out the WHOLE unit.
What you can do is room rentals. You MUST live in the house with your tenants.
As much as I'd like to blame the property agent, I think we need to also point our fingers at the owners as well.
Both salah la.
But the stupider one is the real estate agent because you have a choice to represent your client.
If this client is the sort who will drag you down and cause you sleepless nights, why laaaaaa you agree to work for them? Soooooo not worth it one.

Anyway, did you catch Ratu 2 days ago?
If you haven't, click here.
Got me leh. :p
Wanna thank Norazee and Tina for making sure I looked presentable on TV. Thank you my babes. :)

So sorry its a no pics blog entry people. :(
2012 ending real soon. Let's make a good year out of 2013 in shaa Allah!

Nyla...You're fired!

Already 6th December!!!
Well let's just say that time is passing real fasttttttt.

I am still bibik-less and running around out there.
Don't wanna stay home too much la.
Maciam depressing like that see my laundry bag always full despite settling laundry every other day. Apa ni?!
And the mountain of clothes to be folded. Yeah, Mount Kaninabu is the name. :ppp
I'm not going to mention ironing. Aaaargh!

Honestly, quite a rough time for me. Past few weeks, I have been busy attending events, preparing for my P1 workshop and my real estate work.

And coming back to a not so spick and span home and loads of housework to do....WALANDE.

Like wanna cry like that. And because it's the school holidays it means I have to also make sure Nyla's needs are catered for. She loves company. (Like the mommy)
And she's got so many gerek playmates, must have playdates.

 If there is 1 person truly having a whale of a time during the past few weeks, it's Nyla.
And happy child= happy momma!

She has also been tagging along to many of my appointments and lately, she has waved the white flag.

If last time, a call came in for me to go for viewing, her response would be,"I'm following ah Mommy!"

Now, she's coming up with excuses.
"You go when Daddy comes back from work la Mommy so I stay with Daddy..."
"You put me at Tok Mummy's / Ibu Ana's / Aunty Kin's house la Mommy....."
"You call Mak to come and look after me at home la Mommy.."
"You go when I'm asleep la Mommy at night...."

I guess she's tired la ya. :(
Ok Nyla, you are so fired! :p

So now. if she doesn't want to tag along, I'd have to make arrangements for her.
Just 2 nights ago, she had her first sleepover at Aunty Kin's house.
So memorable, she is still talking about her experience.

"Aunty Kin served us hashbrowns and nuggets Mommy! The moment we wake up, food there already! Magic!"
"So fun Mommy main bawah blok!!!!"
 "Marsya and I sang Taylor Swift and Ryan, Elisya and Keisya become our behind dancers!"(Back up la tu)

Really wonderful to hear her stories.
Kin, Thank you ya for making my kid feel like she's part of your family.
She has no siblings so experiences like these are really priceless. :)

Today, I have decided that I not work and just spend time with Nyla.
We'll probably do lunch together and just chill at our favourite hangout, Jurong Regional Library.

Anyway, the coming days, I am gonna be busy with my real estate work.

I have a single female Chinese lady who owns a cat. She'd like to rent a room at Yishun/ Bishan/Toa Payoh (along the red MRT line la cos she's working at Orchard)
Any of you wanna earn a minimum of $600 a month by renting out your room in any of the locations mentioned above, call me!

Any of you would like to rent out 3 rm flat or 2 rooms for short term? Now till June. Budget max $1400. At Bukit Batok/CCK/Bt Panjang. If matching, pls call me. 

Spacious exec HDB flat. 4 bedrooms. Yeap, The Teck Whye beautiful home I ever blogged about. Kak Izah and hubby have decided to instead rent out their whole unit. :)

This one also I just secured the listing. Valuation all done liao for them. I am currently assisting these clients in applying for bank loan with regards to their next home purchase. Once loan approved, I can start marketing their 2 room HDB flat at Bedok. Rare one. :)

Right now, I'm also assisting a fellow friend. Her mother is considering to sell her 3 rm flat and intend to either buy a studio apartment or a 2 rm resale flat. So, I'll be bringing them to HDB next week to clarify their doubts.

Yeap, that's about it. :)
I've learnt the most valuable thing from the past property experiences:

When your client intends to sell, what is the next course of action? If intend to buy, settle that bit first.
The loan part and all so that they have a roof secured after they sell.

If you have any property enquiries, pls do not hesitate to call me at 9724 8866.
I don't charge a single cent for my property advice one.

I'll gladly do a FREE property analysis for you and tell you whether it is a "Yay" or "Nay" move to proceed and sell/buy/rent. :)
