| lugi na, abonado pa! :(
|hay, this has been a stressful week for me! stressed sa office kaya nadamay pati ang business ko.
this week has been a very busy week for me at work. may deadlines, puro meetings, daming updates, emails and projects to attend to. and of course, there's my business on the side. emails to read, inquiries to answer, personalized packages to create, clients to talk to, suppliers to coordinate, and the list goes on...
so here's the story:
i have 2 orders of this cake for sat and sun.
and i've texted my supplier already about the details days ago. and so all the while, i thought that everything was all ok. i asked the 2 cakes to be deliverd both on saturday morning, para sana makatipid na ako sa delivery charge, tutal the cake can last naman for 5 days pa eh.
this afternoon, while i was in the middle of a meeting (UAT - User Acceptance Testing), my supplier texted me that the cakes are too small (because they ordered 8" only) and can't fit in the castle and the main character. so i texted both my clients if they want to upgrade to 10" instead just for an additional P200. my Saturday client agreed, while my Sunday client hasn't responded yet. so i called her (in the middle of our UAT!), and told her that the castle and the standee Tinkerbell won't fit in the 8" cake. and so she agreed for the upgrade, then reminded me that her topper is not Tinkerbell!
UH-OH!!! i checked her previous text, and was shocked to see that she requested for Jasmin!!! not Tinkerbell! and so i called my cake supplier and asked if she can still changed the topper. but she said na hindi na aabot yun tomorrow and may additional charge na since gawa na din si Tinkerbell eh.
buti na lang pala tumawag ako sa client, kundi...ewan ko na lang! at buti na lang sa sunday pa ang party nya, so napabago ko pa yung topper nya at sa sunday na lang i-deliver. dedma na if doble ang delivery charges ko. ang shungak-shungak ko kasi eh!
and so i thought it was over. eh ang kaso, may order pa syang 15 cupcakes & 15 cookie lollies. na pinagawa ko ding Tinkerbell sa isa pang supplier ko (supplier 2). and so i called supplier 2 and asked if pwede pa palitan. pero pag minamalas ka nga naman, it pours! hehe. 3 days before daw kasi talaga ang paggawa ng candies ng cupcake at lollies, so in layman's term, nagawa na kaninang umaga si Tinkerbell. at since 3 days before nga, di na ako pwedeng mag-additional order dahil super dami din daw nilang orders. hay, ang shungak-shungak ko talaga!!!
bigla kong nalimutan ang ginagawa kong UAT at ang meeting pa na kasunod.
i texted my cake supplier again and asked if kaya pa nya gumawa ng cupcakes & lollies na Jasmin, i-check pa daw nya.
bite the bullet na talaga ako, kahit na mas mahal pa ang cupcakes & lollies ni cake supplier, wala na akong magawa. she retails it at P35 while i offer them (from my supplier 2) to clients just for P25 each. oh di ba, super lugi na ako, abonado pa talaga.
owel, kashungakan ko, kaya no choice! hindi dapat maramdaman ng client ang kapalpakan ko. one of the major booboos ko yata to sa business ko, buti na lang di ganun kalaki ang involved na amount.
thanked God, my cake supplier agreed to do the cupcakes and lollies pa. nakahinga na ako ng maluwag at natuloy na ang meeting namin sa office, mwehehe. di na din ako nag-compute, baka mabwisit lang ako kapag nakwenta ko yung abono ko eh.
at buti na lang supportive si hubby. ganyan daw talaga, minsan may palpak, tao lang din naman ako eh. gawan ko na lang daw ng paraan. and charged it to experience na lang. at sa susunod na lang daw, isulat ko ng maayos para di ako maguluhan kapag sabay-sabay. actually, nakasulat naman sya eh, kaya nga lang, Tinkerbell yung nakasulat. at naalala ko na kung bakit, kasi may kasabay na nag-inquire sa akin nun about Tinkerbell topper, kaya siguro yun ang nasulat ko, hay!
owel, eto pa lang naman ang major kapalpakan ko sa ilang taong nasa business ako eh. and atleast, nagawan ko pa ng paraan, hehe.
hay, blame it on my very busy sched. so do you think i should really concentrate on just 1? work or business? mwehehe.
