How’s everything at your side?
The past week has been an extraordinary one to me. I have realigned myself to adapt to a new work-life schedule. And I feel really amazing! The new time table has allowed me to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner on time, get off work on time, reach home on time and able to spend more time with Isabelle and dear husband. Although following a schedule and time table strictly means there’s little or no flexibility at all, i.e. no last minute tasks or appointments etc… But I have never experienced such bliss ever since I entered the work force :) And besides all that wonderful feelings, I found that I have more time to “dream” again~ And that’s is why despite being heavily pregnant now, I am still taking up the challenge in steering 2 major projects, that includes one internal branding and communication program!! I can’t help but feel very excited about what are coming up next:
- The arrival of the baby
- Work my ass to get back into shape
- The implementation of the upcoming projects
- Travel plans (hot air balloon in Turkey sounds good?)
- And a plan to start a new business…
Although they are still “dreams” at the moment… But being able to dream again makes me feel so alive…
[Paris LV Incident]
That day when I browsed through the pictures in my computer, I recalled of an interesting incident in Paris which I would like to share a little about it :)
So here it goes, Kelvin and I were touring around Paris and I was carrying a LV bag with me. I must admit that I am not particularly good in taking care of handbags and just when I wanted to take a bottle of water out from my bag in front of the Notre-Dame de Paris, the zip just snapped and broke!!
I quickly becoming panicky and keep asking Kelvin, “How??” He grinned and showed me a rather amused facial expression,
“Babe, how did you manage to do that?“
“I don’t know… It just broke like that…“
I really don’t think that it’s my fault… How?
Then we deduced that since we are in Paris, it shouldn’t be too hard to get it repaired. So, here we are, at the tourism landmark of Champs-Élysées,
We were so lucky that the queue was not long and we waited for about 5 minutes before we were being ushered into this building filled with the most sought-after luxury goods in the world.
There were so many people in there and we had to ask around for the repair and service department. One friendly French lady told us that it’s located at the 4th floor. And when we finally found the lift, there’s no access to 4th floor. So we went up to 3rd floor and tried our luck. We were greeted by another polite French staff. And when we asked him how to get to the 4th floor, he told us:
“There’s no 4th floor…”
“Then where is the repair and service department?”
“Oh you want to get to the repair and service department. This way please.”
He then led us to another lift and brought us to the repair and service department located at 4th floor. There, we were attended by a beautiful lady and when I showed her my snapped-and-broken zip, she inspected carefully and told us that they should be able to fix it immediately.
She then took my bag and entered a room with a huge glass window. Inside there were various colours of threads and tools, and an old craftsman with glasses on. He looked at my bag and started fixing it with his delicate tools. And within 10 minutes, the zip was repaired!
I still felt lucky that the zip snapped and broke in Paris cos’ I really have no idea what to do with it if I were in JB. Send it to the nearest store? In Singapore? Or Kuala Lumpur? And how long would it take for them to repair it?
How do you normally service and repair your LV handbags?
