Lesson #1 for Noob Dropshiper: Do not 100% rely on the measurement chart provided

Yesterday a customer who bought a Sania tunic said that the tunics are larger than the measurement provided. Kedai Baju Huda's return policy stated that customers are not allowed to change size or colour because we have already given our customers measurement chart to decide the best size for them. If we are the one who send our customer the wrong item (not as ordered by the customer), then we will resend the product for free within 3 days after receiving the item.

Now it has been a week after she received her parcel. I do not know whether I should let her have her new size or not. Why?

The reason:I relied 100% on the measurement chart provided by the agent.

The possible solutions:
  1. I should at least examine the chart and make sure the measurement given is the same as the actual thing.
  2. I might have to spend extra for that, keep a few sizes of every collection as sample. Later I might be able to put them on sale for a cheaper price. The thing is, I have to make more sales to make sure it worth. To make more sales, I have to work HARDER and SMARTER, achieve a daily target.
Break a leg, Huda!

Being a Winner

I am now the owner of Facebook page Kedai Baju Huda. I would like to give this a trial for two months then I will register with Companies Commission of Malaysia (or else known as Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia, SSM) if things go well. If I am serious about having my own business, I should be responsible of what I do, right?

My new page does not have many followers yet. I learnt FB Ads to get likes and boost post but I do not have the money to do that. I have to start with whatever money that I currently have and I believe taking up loan is not necessary at this moment. Start small, do it consistently and it will get bigger, inshaAllah.

Anyway, currently as a start I am only doing dropship. I don't keep stocks since I do not have much capital. It is quite hard when I don't have much but that's the challenge. If I manage to go through this, and succeed, I'd be a winner.

A winner. InshaAllah.

Brave. Stupidity isn't included.

I had this thought months ago. I started thinking seriously about it last year, and it got more serious after my husband got transferred back to Semenanjung Malaysia. In the beginning it was so vague and confusing, not to mention wild and crazy too because nowadays we are fed with the thought life without a degree would be hard and the economy isn't looking so bright these days.

I wanted to resign from my current post.

I gave it a careful thought. I asked opinion from my husband and my friends who are now stay-at-home wife and mothers. One friend encouraged it. Another did not because she said it would get boring. For my husband, he would let me resign only if I am clear of what I want to do after I have resigned.

I told my friends about it and they said it was a brave decision. You have to be careful when you decide to be brave. You have to find out what would you go through if you make certain decision. You really can't do it blindly. Be brave, not stupid.

What is my plan after resigning?

I want to learn cooking. I want to learn baking. I want to make sure I am beautiful, fit and in a good shape. I want to make sure our home would be clean and tidy every time my husband comes home. I want to write. I want to start a home-based business. It is never about my pay.

Now I have started selling blouses and dresses. Before this I used to sell acne cream but I stopped after a while. I have to start from the bottom and I can't give up, one step after another. I join classes on skills and marketing. Before this I used to go to Business Model Canvas (BMC) class. Last weekend I learnt about Facebook Ads. Can't wait to put knowledge into practice.

Anyway, inshaAllah my resignation starts at the end of May 2016.

It was a hard decision as I love working with my Khalifah family. I have been a staff of Khalifah Institute (now Khalifah Education Foundation/Yayasan Pendidikan Khalifah-YPK) since August 2009. My first post was as an assistant training executive. I managed training for Khalifah Training and Consultancy. Then I became a teacher at Khalifah Model School (Primary) for a few months before moving to Khalifah Model School (Secondary) in 2014 until now. My bosses are very understanding and caring lot and everyone is like a family to me.

Even though I resign, I hope I'd still get the chance to help YPK in the future.

I'm not ugly.

Oh. Did I tell you that I'm getting larger these days?

I'm being mocked at by some people. It's kind of sad because it shows the real ugliness in you. Moga Tuhan balas perbuatan kau orang di kemudian hari.

#lifeofahuda now.

I. Am. Back.

LOL. Berkurun sekali baru singgah buang sawang di blog ini.

Well, hello there folks! I'm going to make another attempt to consistently write on my blog, even if it means writing a few lines.

Lately I have been extremely busy that I do not have time to write. People will tell me that I'm just making an excuse. Say what you want, live my life and you'll know.

My parents' place is now 98% done with renovation. It took us more than half year to live with bricks and dust, thanks to our first contractor. He did his work without proper planning, causing us too much trouble and so my dad refused to continue his service even though at that time there was a lot of work to be done. After that dad called the contractor we are used to to continue the work. He did the renovations at our old place in Gombak some years back. We prepared a room for his workers to stay because he is based in Gombak and our house is like one hour away.

Then my brother got married, and as usual, kau yang kawin, aku yang sibuk because yes, I'm the eldest sister so I HAVE to do everything even though my plate was already full. To my new sister-in-law, welcome to our family. Make this opportunity to become a better person and makes it easier for you to enter Jannah, inshaAllah.

After one year and eight months, finally my husband and I get to live together. It was on my brother's wedding day, after his solemnization at the masjid in Sungai Petani that we found out. It was a double joy for our family. Alhamdulillah!  For now we live with my parents because we need time to look for proper place to live in with rent within our budget.

Currently I am still teaching at Khalifah Model School (Secondary) and I am preparing my students to take IGCSE O Level's English as a Second Language exam end of this year. Teaching them have given me opportunity to self-reflect on my future plan. Will reveal that next time when it's proper.

Okie dokie. I'm off to sleep.
