of being in a dilemma... :-(

i've been attending the avon new associates orientation day for the past 2 days and today is the last day, of which we are going on a field trip to one or two of the boutiques, somewhere in klang valley.. and i'm in a middle of a heavy werk load, of which everything is due next week! EVERYTHING, man..

i know, more or less, some of my readers dah jelak nak dengar my pathetic story about how busy i am.. asyik stay back laa.. takde masa for this and that laa.. et cetra, et cetra.. but dat is what happening now! last weekend pegi klebang pon, didnt really enjoy myself.. balik je sakit. the whole family pulak tu.. well.. weather's not gud nowadays..

the other day, one of my superior approached me and said dat i'll be working on the brochure soon. which i instantly said ok to.. since i've been in avon for the past 2 and a half mths but still doing ad hoc jobs. but what i didnt realized dat the campaign i'll be working on is campaign 17 (kat avon the refer the brochure as campaign and in a year we have 24 campaigns divided to 12 mths equivalent to 2 campaigns per month, which simply means 2 weeks for each campaign) and therefore we have to werk in advance in order to make sure the campaign/brochure sampai kat dealers a month before the actual campaign... faham ke? i.e: campaign 17 tu the duration is 1st sept-15 sept, so the creative brief is going to be in may which is 4 mths in advance, the creative team is given 42 days to complete the brochure (inclusive production). from the 1st day of briefing from marketing side, kita ada 2 weeks je for visual execution..

so.. what i'm trying to say is, since i'll be doing the 17th campaign, marketing will brief me somewhere in may, and my 1st presentation is early june.. and you might ask... "SO? apa yg big deal sgt nih? dia ni nak cakap ape? ape yg dia merepek nih? kena keja, keja je la..." hahaha! the major problem here is (if this PARTICULAR PERSON baca dis PARTICULAR ENTRY, she will straight away understands what i mean...) my beloved sisterly best friend, eliza rahim will tie the knot on the 3rd and 4th of june 2005 and from the day i got to know this beautiful news, i said to myself dat i will take couple of days off and be by her side, to witness the holy matrimony between her and her beloved syafik. to be there before and after. to feel the excitement. to feel the sadness of letting her go and set her free. the change of environment surrounding her... macam la aku ni mak dia..

but suddenly, the vision of it became vague and unsure. bloody brochure!

i'm sorry elly.. i really am..
i don't know how to tell her this.
i hope you read this post and forgive me..

the sound of wedding bells suddenly didn't excite me anymore...
