Our dearly Managing Director is the Chung Ling genius, Mr Hobart.
(Ahem, i'm now wearing the name tag he's wearing in this pic okay. XD)
I can still remember clearly. All meetings held were serious and followed the proper agenda. Meeting minutes were given to everyone, Formal reports from every departments, Discussions.... It's quite unusual for me as it's really hard to see these in this kinda boys' school. And i would say our Pn Aliza gave one of the biggest contributions to this. xD (And she ran away after taking our Annual Report and some $$$, OMG!!!)
Come on, Work!! Work!! Work!!
The production session was late and we were so so relieved as we're just in time to finish the products for the Annual Sales Fair. In fact, we are one of the latest enterprise to start our production. ( It's the same this year!! haha) We didnt have a big team last year, and most of us were unwilling to give out ideas or to think of some products. Thus, we managed to produce just four products. (3 for the YE Sales Fair, 1 for the Teachers' Day Presents)
Our factory was one of the classroom in a CLHS 1960's old building. And we got to share half of the room with the Muslims, to perform their prayers. Kesian, kan? Sudak tak ada tempat masih mau share lagi. Tak pah la, kita semua anak Malaysia. Share share la!! hahaha. The room was rather messy and dirty as we didn't even have time to clean up the room!! But the condition was still far better than this year's. haha. Oh ya, and i found a cat hiding in the cupboard!!!!
For those who know nothing about YE, our main purpose through out the programme is to promote and sell our selfmade products during the Sales Fair. 07' YE Annual Sales Fair was held at Queensday Mall, 06' and 05' were held at Prangin Mall while 04' and 03' were at Gurney Plaza. (if im not mistaken) All the participating companies were given a booth, where we set up our own stall.
Unlike this year, we got to decorate nicely for the stall. And there's an award for the best decorated stall. We put up a banner and decorated a little.
Our Sales Director planned a few stuffs for this big event to attract more customers. We got the Happy Hour session, which sells our products at a discounted price and also the Lucky Draw. Personally, i opposed the idea of Lucky Draw, as i felt that it was just a waste of money and would not attract much customers. PFS too had lucky draw session, but i think both were just a failure. hhahaa. I didn't see these two ideas in 08' Annual Sales Fair, except the Union girls, who had the Happy Hour Session.
By the way, i remembere when i was promoting about the Lucky Draw so hard to a customer last year, she was like, Oh, okay. When i told her that she was eligible for the Lucky Draw, she said to me, ''erh you draw for me then.'' Yeah, i got her a few highlighters and pens. And she told me, ''Wow, okay erm, give you larh, see you serve me for so long already.''
The two days were a different look for the Queensbay Mall as you could see a lot of high schoolers hanging around with their school uniform. That's nice and its common in other countries (but not Malaysia), i found that ppl will stare at you if you are in a mall with your uniform during weekdays. (That's weird okay, aunties and uncles, please. What's wrong with it as we're not ponteng-ing school or wat. Boo!!) But the 08' Penang Leo Joint Installation held at GSC Gurney last month was much nicer because Leos with their club vest could be seen elsewhere around Gurney that day. hahaa
I gained some knowledge and experience in my two YE careers. (Asst Finance Director in 07' Blitzcrieg and Asst Managing Director in 08' Ozio) At last, it's the end for me in Young Enterprise. For those who are not sure about to join YE or not, i would like to tell you that's only Penang and Klang available for this programme in Malaysia!! And it's a programme from the American-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce. Trust me, you will get something totally different from activities in school.
Argh, i miss YE now! XD
