I made it!

It is divine intervention that on Saturday, I got several big money opps. After making some calculations, I realised I can hit the USD5K mark.

But being a weekend, it means a lot of commitment on my part. Shopping lah, makan-ing lah, lepak-ing lah and churchy stuffs.

So, I thought of forgetting about it. But it is too tempting not to make a last minute dash. And I tried. Just 30 mins before midnight, September 30th I got it. USD5004.

I couldn't reveal this in my personal blog or make money blog as it is not fair to the few big money opps.

So, here's my little celebration.

I had to make myself a big jar of Ribena for the sugar high as I have no time to eat. Anyway, I was stressed enough after cooking dinner, washing butt, bath my kid, give him all the hugs he need.

Plus lots of loud music to drown out all the noises as I need to make two 400 words opps on a topic I am not familiar with. I had to study and research, read and re-read.

But at the end of it, I broke into tears because it is like running a marathon race. A race that no one cares, no one cheers except my competitive nature. I made it. Through sheer hard work. That's what make me proud because it is not some bluff job but through sheer hard work, brain cells and the sleepless nights.
