Carol and I

Hello darlings. I've not been updating often now because I'm so lucky that I got employed. It's hard to get a job now, so I'm considered lucky compare to some of my friends who waited more than 6 months or a year. I work everyday, Saturday half day, so my free time is night time, Saturday and Sunday. During my free time, I work on my make up job; if I don't, I will drive to Seria to visit my family, so I'm kinda occupied.

I was Google-ing my name "EaHui" to check on some links because I don't wanna type my link at the address box of my office desktop lol *opps* Then I saw on the results, this: CuteRabbit Land: Thank You Eahui :))

You can click to read :) or Just read below with some of my comments. May be you can know me more from here, or know about us.

She wrote about me when she was about to go Singapore to work:

"Rabbit just got home then saw Eahui's tagged her in a post in FB. I clicked then saw one of her entries about me. I cried while reading the post coz so touched and I felt so "she bu de".

Arh~~ those good times. Guess you guys never thought that actually I thought I was gonna lose this friend, not when we was sick, it was way before that. I guess there was some misunderstandings which I had no idea why was she so mad at me, I was blur. I didn't fight with her, I didn't annoyed her because I still put hope to one day she might want to come back to me (wahseh hahah), I don't want us to be awkward later. I don't remember how and when she talked to me again, but we are good now ^^ Yea, there was misunderstanding. 

I was glad that the bad moment between us last for a while and I'm still able to listen and share our life when we were apart (she was in SG, I was in Bru). Thanks god she's strong enough to escape from the death door, she's healthy and happy now with her family and baby boy! Good karma this is. Great to have you in my life you this crazy vegetarian chaboh.

We ate 5 bowls of rice! 想當年. Thanks Tiger Lim for the video.

There's no such thing as free lunch

Living on this earth for 24 years and the frequent advice from my dad, I learnt since young that, there's no such thing as free lunch!

When someone told me that how easy it is to make money from XXX ways, I'll always ask "So what do I need to do?" as I know there's no free lunch. For eg, you can make money without investing any capital. But what you need to do is you got to have a wide social network, push yourself to sell our products, approach hundreds of people and explain how does the product work. And out of that 10 people, may be only 2 are successful or worse, none.

 A lot of people think service provider like me, makeup artist, artist, photographer, manicurist, designer, etc sells skill instead of product, so it's OK to ask for free. However, sorry to say, it's NOT OK at all.

I'll take myself (make up artist) as an example.

I spent more than RM20K to attend makeup courses, to get tools like brushes, cosmetic products, airbrush kit, etc, you know that cosmetics ain't cheap thing. So why should we provide a free service for you? Just because you think we sell skill only, and you are our friends, so you think it's alright for us to provide you a free service.

I think a supportive friend would not ask for a free service just like that. It's annoying to hear "Yay, I have a makeup artist friend, so I can have free makeup (service)." Even my family pay me for the service. You can ask for a discount, but NOT free. Unless, I am the one who want to makeup free for you. You know, the more you want it, the more I'm not willing to give. I go your shop take free things OK or not?

Another thing, I feel annoyed when people always ask for benefits from me, but they are not willing to help me when I need them. Then they complain when they see I treat other people better. It's like you are happy when I give you one candy. When you see me give another person 2 candies, you feel mad. But do you know that, that person gave me 2 candies before and you gave me none.

I earn a living from doing makeup, I need to pay my bills, and you ask for free makeup, you don't feel paiseh meh? I do sponsorship, because we have a win-win situation or because the organizer assisted me before.

I would love to do your makeup for free, but the makeup products are not free, educating myself is not free, my time is not free either. Thank you for understanding :)
