Time of Crisis – Being a Socially Responsible Person.

Okay, Bitcoin is mooning (yay!), so are the 2019-nCoV cases. Over the past few days, many of my groupchats had been flooded with tons of videos/ messages of nCoV virus news, prevention tips and many more. However I notice a trend that suddenly, everyone become 鼠(su)per duper paranoid, overstoring of:

  1. Surgical Masks
  2. Sanitizers
  3. Dettol Wipes
  4. Alcohol Swabs

And it hit me real hard when my family members started to stop me from going to the mall near home due to suspected case surfacing. Even the paranoid-ness set in with my daughters and it placed me in a dilemma.

I wondered. What will happen to the economy? Ok maybe for the fact that that the purchases of the masks and etc will thrive but what about the others?

To be real honest here, I always feel that we just need to be socially responsible and not overly paranoid, to protect ourselves and to others especially during this time of crisis.


And how should we start?

  1. Do not hoard supplies of the above 4 mentions. Some people might need it more than us.

  2. When sick, do not go out and loiter. Stay home or minimize contacts with anyone. Wear a mask when stepping out.

  3. Practise good daily hygiene. Wash your hands with soap thoroughly. Avoid constantly rubbing of eyes.

  4. Avoid touching handle bars, grips, metal surfaces and then rubbed your eyes/ put it into the mouth. Please note this for the kids.

  5. Drink the daily Vitamin-C and plenty of plain water. Plain water help to flush out the “toxic”.

  6. EAT YOUR GREEN VEGETABLES and less of raw foods and do not go near livestock.

  7. Squeeze/ Cough into tissue paper and fold it in and dispose into the trash bins.

  8. LASTLY, do not spread FAKE NEWS. Get the latest updates from the Government sites. Otherwise sign up with Gov.Sg WhatsApp via: https://go.gov.sg/whatsapp

Take good care of the babies, young children and elderly as their immune systems are lower as per compared. Oh yes and pregnant mummies~


During this time of crisis, we need to really be socially responsible for the benefits of others. Because imagine, if we really hog the masks, practise all the good habits and etc, and someone really sick decide to go out to shop and then we kana. It’s seriously a wtf situation and don’t make any sense at all.

I do understand that everyone will argue about the 14-days pre-hibernation period that the virus might not be detectable but as long we practise the good habits, there is a good percentage that the virus might not spread like wildfire or maybe “killed” by the soap and all before it penetrated into our body/ immune system.

And it really saddened me that some of the people whom I know that needs the alcohol stabs for their medical condition is unable to purchase what they need due to OOS.

On another random note; Oranges are good source of Vitamin-C and thus I used the left over Mandarin Oranges to make fruit juices and ice pops to make sure the kids are well covered with Vitamin C and minimize outings for them.

Mandarin Orange Icepop! 🙂

Ironically, it made us more opportunities to bond together as a family nucleus, because the kids had already planned out what to cook for lunch/ dinner over the weekends as we will be “stuck at home”. Although many times when I passed by Orchard Central and all, there is NO/ lesser crowds.

My hearts goes out to the Business Owners, Patients, Kins of Patients, Frontline Personnels and the people in Hubei/ Wuhan – Bless you all.

Another lesson to remind that we must not take things for granted, heavily emphasized and validated by the Kobe Bryant’s case.

Indifference.

Indifference will result in being a toxic being to self and others.

I once chanced upon this video by Ellen DeGeneres where she tried to seek help after she came out on her sitcom and everyone turned against her. She didn’t have a ring up for years yet she suppressed and won at her own depression to do her own talk show.

She says something along this line; If you feel different and depressed. Don’t worry… because:

“Things will get easier, people’s minds will change, and you should be alive to see it.”

And the above stuck in my head till now.

I decided to keep on trying. Suppressing my own demons within. There is nothing sort of giving up. Trying to find that winning formula through limited time and money but I know I will figure it, outgrown it and finally succeed.

The first thing on my mind is to create an ample runway for budget flow. Everyone have their own stories. Their debts, their commitments and there could be a way to figure something out.

I figure out mine through crypto investing and copy trading (forex trading). I learnt and made a lot of friends through this. And just kept on moving, to grow the pie. It’s a long tedious process but I made it happened. I had never thought I would grow from a Teletext-reader for my dad to a leisure trader/ investor myself.

No one ever thought I would one day become a Semi-SAHM and work from home and created a work-from-home empire. No one. So the key… Taking risks sometimes will lead you to surprises and perhaps, one will get to enjoy the whole process. 😉

Shall pen down more thoughts on my mumtechpreneur journey in my next post. 🙂

Resolutions 2020

Late boomer, nay.

I just happened to be busy with all the unnecessary stuff since Christmas and furthermore, Lunar New Year seems to come real quick this year (less than 1 month FROM Christmas) and there is so much to do yet with limited time. And I realized that I did not set down a time to review and do up the resolutions so here I am.


Reviews for the Year 2019:

  • Changed a new job. Left the Blockchain world for some space and peace.
  • Completed a Prof. Diploma in Digital Marketing
  • Begin to spend more time home/ with parents/ with kids.
  • Begin my journey in leisure Crypto-Investing/ Investment Strategies (for self)
  • Joined an Accelerator for Piggyback.
  • Relaunched Scentimental Singapore.
  • Reorganize my thoughts and launch this space.

Year 2019 had been a year of soul-searching and understand what I want and need. A thorough awakening moment to redefine the core of things.


Year 2020;

  • <Priority> Less toxicity includes the environment and the people.
  • Focus on my goals in self attainment for business/ self/ family.
  • Spend more time with the girls/ family.
  • Spin-off Piggyback/ Scentimental/ Consultancy.
  • Achieve S100K
  • Learning to be a bigger person.

I need to learn to let go in the Year 2020 and by doing so, I held back on my social media postings where I am determined to go for the social media detox for a year and focus on my #willynn2020goals.

Seriously, this could be the only year where I focus on the business and leave the “stable” job for good. I only have 11 months left and my life is still “intoxicated”. I would be finding my winning formula to build my “Work-From-Home” empire and leverage on the gig/ sharing economy where the passion lives.

Cheers and Happy Lunar New Year! 🙂

Entrepreneurship Journey Thus Far

Sometimes I don’t understand my mum because the double standard-ness is at sky high level that sometimes I can’t comprehend with her thoughts.

She always said that; “Wah, you can be a boss leh because you got the brains and the guts” but on another hand “Why you wanna be a boss ah? Find a proper job lah. You need to feed your kids. Be a boss hor, very stress one leh.

Like hello mum, a boss is a proper job. Ok perhaps my entrepreneurship was never a smooth sailing one. My first venture was into blogshops in Year 2011 if I remember correctly?

The idea came about during some free times during the maternity leave and it triggered me to explore a second income but it becomes a good learning ground despite the fact that it’s the blogshop bloom era where majority are hosted via either blogspot or livejournal.

First Venture — Female Apparels Blogshop

But apparently I didn’t become the next Love, Bonito. 🙂 I feel that the reason was that the instability and the full-time job are already too overwhelmed to handle so it didn’t give me the diehard PUSH factor.

So I closed down the now-defunct blogshop and donated all my new clothing to SCWO for the name of charity and hopefully finder keepers theory.

This is not the end. I didn’t give up and work on the — many ideas which came upon me during the pregnancy, maternity period and post-period. Helping to solve my “own” personal issue as a mother of one, two, three and now, four kids (plus 2 furkids) and this is how it evolved to Scentimental and Piggyback.

Failure is not everything. It’s a good lesson learnt and it made me a stronger person. Sometimes you win some, you lose some.

It was never easy to hold a full-time job and work on the other portfolios during the wee hours. Sometimes I only get to have 2-hours of sleep each day and at times when I got burnt out but at the end of the day, it’s to solve a particular problem, a common problem.

Perhaps will share more about each company in coming future. 🙂

Hustling & Buzz

The weeks had been draining with all the festive peaks and I am grateful for all who gave me a chance and opportunity to prove myself thus apologizing to the inner self whom I had not been taking care much.

I’m back now to pen down these mental notes to serve as a reminder.

Looking back at now. The momentum and vibes had been disrupted but it’s a good lesson learned, “Text has no emotions, and it’s highly misinterpreted by the end receiver.”

Had some great takeaways about life, relationships and also business opportunities made me realized one thing —

“PASSION MADE WONDERS. AS LONG YOU SET YOUR MIND TOWARDS IT. YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT.”

Entrepreneurship is a lonesome journey. Many will be naysayers and put you down terribly.

Lion Powerful Quote
Powerful Quote – The LION does not turn around when a small dog barks.

I will remember this. Somehow, had been intoxicated with negative emotions and mentally affected but it’s a good learning curve that I get to embrace and learn.

Steep but good.

Crypto, Rants

Crypto Winter, Again.

The crypto charts had been volatile over the past few days, weeks and months. Looking at the 90-days chart kind of emphasized my need and vision to be investment savvy to place the eggs into the various baskets and not just to one crypto investing.

Also, across the spectrum, I had also trade not just one but at least 2 coins to minimize the loss and importantly, ensure that I don’t get overly-heartbroken. You can check out my pots via my $FOLIO.

I believed it will take some time for it to spike back especially $Bitcoin rewards halving will happen in May 2020. It would be an exciting period for all the crypto investors.

To me, crypto investment is more of a savings plan. One must be able to overcome its psychologically and mental aspects to HODL and not liquidate at small chances unless you are talking at a small fraction of what you trade. Sometimes I do that (to finance daily needs) too but I try not to do that frequent.

It’s mentally draining and also, not wise not a long-term trader.

I set a threshold of my losses and also, a timeframe to give it to rise otherwise, I will liquidate at the next possible chance. 😉

Trading is not also a one-off thing but it on another hand, I am those who do a lot of homework to these tradings because I need to know what I’m buying and I will try to envision a long term perspective.

So if you need any second opinions, email me or telegram me for more chat ups. 🙂
