Happy 4th Birthday Jared!

Four years ago I fell in love with a chinky-eyed little charmer and I have never been the same…

I had no idea what was in store for me when I became a mum four years ago and nothing have prepared me for my most profound experience ever. Being a mother to my little man was the happiest day of my life. He was my most beautiful blessing from heaven and he gave me the gift of joy, of life, of knowing how wonderful it is to have an all-access pass to the unfolding of another beautiful creation.

Jared is my most precious gift from God and he taught me what pure unconditional love is all about. He continue to teach me a little something about myself each day and he taught me invaluable lessons about life and living. He has touched my heart in more ways than I have ever expected and I will be eternally grateful. Thank you for coming into my life son. Thank you for giving me the privilege to be your mum.

It has been four glorious years. Sure the trip was never easy and I assure you that we will encounter a lot of challenges and problems along the way, but let me tell you that I am glad that I am taking this journey with you. I cannot imagine it any other way. It was worth everything that I have been through and everything that I have suffered. Know that  I will go through all of it over again because I will get to be with you in the end.

I love you son and I will always do. Know that I will always be here for you as long as you need me and if that fateful day comes when you can be on your own and will no longer need me, I will make sure to find ways to stick around! 🙂

On your birthday, I wish you happiness. I wish for you to grow up to be a kind, gentle, generous and loving man. But most importantly, I wish for you to enjoy life to the fullest and do not forget to smile and laugh! :heart:

My Second Shopping Haul From Lazada

simple pleasures, online shopping, pr, Jared's nook
all for the little man

After ordering a bunch of items late last month, I immediately placed my second order from Lazada.ph shortly after. This time, just to save time on deciding which items to buy, I opted for the little man’s essentials since I am running low on supplies, anyway. I got a couple of Tiny Buds Rice Powder, 2 pieces of Light-up Firefly Toothbrush and threw in a bottle of Tiny Buds Scratch Off! {which I wanted to try on the little man}. I also included this lovely Cars2 tin lunch box that features Finn McMissile and Tow Mater, which I am sure my little one will absolutely love! I also included this cool purple watch {as the little man’s old yellow Spalding watch just got broken recently}.

As expected, the package was delivered at home after two days and they are placed neatly in a box with the tin lunch box painstakingly wrapped in a wad of bubble wraps! A clear indication that people at Lazada will go through the trouble of packing their items neatly to reach their destinations safe and sound and in A-Okay condition. Two thumbs up! 🙂

Thank you Lazada for another pleasurable shopping experience and I look forward to shopping with you again!  :-))

By the way, our friends at Lazada have another good news to share. Read the rest of the press release to know more:

online shopping, pr

Singapore, August 13, 2013 – Lazada has officially launched its Marketplace platform in all its markets – an online platform for third-party sellers who aspire to be visible on the region’s most popular online shopping mall.

Lazada is operating a multi-category online shopping mall withalmost two hundred thousand products listed and is now offering a platform enabling merchants, both online and offline, to sell their products onhttps://www.lazada.com.ph or any other Lazada’s web store in Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand or Malaysia. Lazada’s Marketplace sets new standards in the industry by providing customized support for logistical arrangements,state-of-the-art online marketing initiatives and a tailored shop-in-shop visible to its huge visitor base.

The Marketplace solution allowsSME’s, big brands, distributers and retailers to open an online shop without the need for significant upfrontcapital expenditures and is thus lowering the risk for those merchants. Furthermore, it can help its partners to gain acompetitive advantage as it provides access to Lazada’s massive community of fans and customers across the region. According to social-network analytic website Social Bakers, Lazada is one of the most liked pages on Facebook with almost 5 million Facebook fans and an average of 8,000 new “like” every day.

Maximilian Bittner, CEO of Lazada said “the number of partnership requests we received made us realize the massive demand and we are glad to provide this opportunity to all merchants in the region”.Bittner continued: “westarted to develop our Marketplace platform in late 2012 as it fits perfectly withour goal to continuously expand our product offering and service level to our customers and partners”. Bittner also believes the platform has the powerful “side-effect” of developing an online eco-system whichwill createbusinessopportunities supporting economic growth and job creation in SouthEast Asia.

The Marketplace operation is sophisticated but user friendly, eliminating the micromanagement and hassle of updating and keeping track of individual transactions. Merchants are able to build their catalogue, update inventory, and create new listings in their virtual shop via a store management tool synchronized with Lazada’s back-end IT system.Lazada also allocates a dedicated account manager to merchants who will educate on eCommerce best-practices andadvice on further growth potential.

One of the early adapters to join Lazada’s Marketplace was Pineapple Computers in Malaysia, a well-established electronic retailer.Dato Mark Lim, founder and Managing Director of Pineapple Computer said, “we faced aggressive competition from larger players as well as high operating costs, limiting our ability to expand the business, even though our prices were competitive. With Lazada’s Marketplace, its capable workforce, logistic management and delivery system we have grown the business by 38% and have now a visibility to hundreds of thousands of Malaysians that were inaccessible to us previously. Pineapple has entered a new frontier.”

Lazada’s Marketplace has also caught the attention of major players such as Philips Electronics,the market leader in several small appliance categories. Ms. Siriwan Nitkitjatorn, General Manager of Consumer Lifestyle Sector at Philips in Thailand said, “Philips will partner with Lazada to make our innovations even more easily accessible to consumers allowing them to enjoy our products wherever they are”. Recognizing the strong growth potential in eRetailing and the convenience it brings to consumers, she pointed out, “Philips has always designed their products around the needs of the customers and nowadays the ability to use an online distribution channel is part of those needs.”

Something as simple as posting emergency hotline numbers on your Twitter Page, or re-posting Typhoon bulletins on your Instagram account do help a lot.
