Envy Health & Beauty Grand Opening

Envy Health & Beauty
had their grand opening officiated by YB Vincent Goh on the 10th of May 2008. I was up early to support Joyce’s and Mary’s venture. :)

The interior of Envy has been added with some frills for the press since reporters were coming to cover the opening ceremony.

The people from my company chipped in to get flowers for Envy. Joyce works in my office (we’re even on the same floor).

envy potpourri

There were already a lot of people there when I arrived (fashionably late, not intentionally, but due to the seminar) and Joyce, Mary and Shirley were there to greet visitors and pass out a bottle of drinking water with a cute bag of potpourri attached to it.

envy girls

The three girls were all wearing white uniforms which looks really professional.

envy shirley

This is Shirley, who is one of the partners with Joyce and Mary. I just met her that day. :)

envy shirley er

I was rather curious about the little name tag located near Shirley’s left…er, cardiac region, so I asked her permission to take a very close-up photo of her cleava…er, I mean tag. Thanks for being a sport about the unusual request, Shirley! :) (and please stop snickering guys)

envy food

High tea was provided as well, with a selection of local delights for people to indulge in after the opening ceremony.

envy cake

The centerpiece is a huge blueberry cake with the word “Envy” scrivened – and yes, there really is such a word – on it.

The guest of honor arrived promptly at 10 am, which surprised me a little, since dignitaries usually bring the term “fashionably late” to new heights. ;)

envy vincent

There was an opening speech by YB Vincent Goh, who is the designated VIP of the event and then the ribbon cutting ceremony was held to launch Envy Health & Beauty.

The obligatory cake cutting ceremony was held after that.

The other obligatory event was the ribbon cutting to signify the opening of this new establishment.

The owners of Envy presented YB Vincent with a thank you gift to mark the end of the opening ceremony.

envy bp ad

I also took the liberty of putting out a congratulatory ad in Borneo Post for Envy…with a rather prominent self-promoting URL of a certain blog, naturally. ;) It cost me RM 170 which is pretty reasonable for the size.

envy congrats

Heartiest congratulations from sixthseal.com to Joyce, Mary and Shirley. May Envy Health & Beauty be the envy of all other establishments. Okay, that was a rather lame bit of wordplay. :p

Envy Health & Beauty is located at No. 2, 1st Floor, Lorong Pahlawan 7E, Pusat Jaya Li Hua.

Goodbye Shirley!

This is a photo of Shirley Yu Qi Ji, taken this morning. She’s my
housemate and she’s finished her studies at HELP Institute so she’s
moving out today. The background is the empty room that was once
occupied by her, and another girl from China would be moving in soon to
take her place. I was surprised when she mentioned webpages after I
took the picture, I wasn’t aware that she knows I keep a blog.

However, it turns out that she doesn’t know about my blog, she’s
under the impression that everyone taking photos with a digicam puts
them up on the net. Anyway, she did not mind being posted and I agreed
to mail her a copy. I actually forgot that she was moving out today
until I got out of the shower, all dripping wet and saw her lugging
several large suitcases down the stairs so I helped.

Anyway, Shirley is an international student from China and we’ve
always been intrigued by this dish she cooks – she only makes one pot
of soup for dinner, but there’s all sorts of things inside the soup.
That’s the only dish…very interesting. Well, I’m still at the office
finishing up some stuff…I think I would have to come in either
Saturday or Sunday to complete it since I’m really tired from not
sleeping last night. I’ll update and reply the comments when I get home.

Goodbye Shirley! It’s been great living together.
