Guess which place won’t be selling Beyonce’s album

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Beyonce’s self-titled album may be on its way to becoming the top selling female album of 2013 but there’s one place which refuses to carry Queen B’s latest album: TARGET.

Target spokesperson Erica Julkowski tells Billboard: “At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections.” [E! Online]

The awesome Google Hangout!

Had so much fun during motivationMY‘s Google Hangout – we talked about the lessons we’ve learned in 2013 and how our 2014 is going to be awesome!

I will listen to the conversation again and cut the best sound bites and upload it to motivationMY.com! Do bear with me and give me a few days to do that!

The post-Hangout session was just as fun. Too bad it wasn’t recorded! Gosh, I should have recorded it. We were just being ourselves and LOL-ing and some things.

Here’s a photo:

I think Google Hangout is such an amazing platform, allowing all of us to be chatting with our video cams. Izam was based in London, while Aylea and Eyra were based in Brunei.

At the end of the day, it’s good to get feedback from each other and getting fresh perspectives on things. Hmmm… perhaps I should do more Google Hangout in 2014 for motivationMY.com

Google Hangout: What are some of the lessons you’ve learned/relearned in 2013?

I’m so excited that motivationMY.com (my other blog) is hosting a Google Hangout just to recap our year. It’s a conversation on what we’ve learned or relearned this year. Also, looking ahead, What’s Next for 2014. 

Can I just say here that Google Hangout is like one of the best innovation? I mean, we will be just chatting from our home (or fave cafe) and we have two tweeps from Brunei joining! How awesome!

London-based Izam Ryan will be co-moderating this event with me and I will upload the videos in batches towards the end of 2013!

Friday’s DIY Project: Baking cupcakes

Mum and I went to our cousin’s place to bake cupcakes with her kids. At first we were contemplating whether to go on with this DIY project but I told my mum that it’s not just about cupcakes (otherwise we could just buy some at the mall) but it’s about the process and making cupcakes from scratch… and playing with the dough and icing… and making a whole lot of mess in the kitchen!

It’s the school holidays – kids just want to have fun. Their uncle wants to have fun, too!

It’s not a ‘good thing’ as Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia cuts 100 jobs

Martha Stewart Living

It’s not a Good Thing at domestic goddess Martha Stewart’s empire as the company she founded will cut about 100 jobs, equivalent to a quarter of its workforce. According to USA Today, the company, which publishes Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings, has been hit by a sharp decline in print ads with revenue for the third quarter fell 22% to $33.8 million.
