Speaking

On my wedding day, I fractured my foot when I finished the wedding ceremony. Next month, I will go to honeymoon. Bali is near China, it only takes us seven hours to go there. In our traditionally, I need go back my hometown to take the New Years. I am going to Bali for a short trip. In my new job, I don’t have two days off. I will use 1 week to go on holdiay and 1 week to go home.

Because in our client’s wedding day, we need to do all the night, you cannot sleep. You need to have creativity, so I like it a lot. For my part, I need to communicate with clients, make something by hand and we need to buy flowers. We buy flowers at the flower’s market. Every wedding, there are only two or three kinds of flowers, but in our company, at least 10 kinds of flowers.

My last job is do some advertisement with social media. Now, social media has so many fake advertisements, but in wedding job, I can make some things come true. It’s good. So if others ask me my job, I can show them my event. It’s only the not good thing. It takes about six months to plan a wedding. At first, we meet them six months ago. We design the event in 1 month. Our company’s event is very costly so we need more time to prepare.

In our tradition, I need to go back to my hometown to celebrate the New Years. I am going to Bali for a short trip. For my new job, I don’t have weekends off. I will use 1 week to go on holdiay and 1 week to go home.

My last job is about social media advertisement. Now, social media has so many fake advertisements, but in the wedding industry, I can make some dreams come true. It’s good. So if others ask me about my job, I can show them my work/previous events. It’s the only disadvantage. It takes about six months to plan a wedding. First, we meet them six months before. Then, we design the event for 1 month. Our company’s event is very costly so we need more time to prepare.
