2007 Year End Greeting

I just want to use this opportunity to express my gratefulness to all of you , that made my year 2007 wonderful!

Mia Bambina was born not too long ago and yet I gained so many good friends and know a lots of amazing moms from my e-store! All of you have support me more than you know, not only in business wise but more in relationship and friendship!

As the first year of running e-store, I often tumbled in many obstacles , but with His help and your support I can went through it .

I must figured out and learned how to handle: budgeting, source a great items, and tried the items ( the best part of running this e-store!LOL), learn HTML codes, and also I must learned how to handle a few of "sour" times too. We must admit that most e-store are run by women and women do a lot of cat fights ! And as a human I admit , I am not perfect, and made mistakes. Maybe my good intentions had been interpret wrongly, or someone used my "Friendly" email and forward it to other persons, or to USA's companies and used it to attack me back. I will not dish all the details of all the sour things here. :)
I try my best not to react by attacking back ( by blogging back or put a vicious comments back), but I try to contact the person directly and deal with it rather that blog about it. I think that is more proper.
But I guess I am so blessed that many of you stand by me during this "bumps" and believe in me.

My father's wisdom words to me: earn the reputation is much harder than earn a profit. To make profit just buy something and re-sell it at higher price. But to earn reputation you need far a lot more than just buy and re-sell. This is what I am trying to imply to my self.

Anyway...Thanks so much for making 2007 so great! It is so rewarding to read your blogs about cloth diapers, your comments, your e-stores , your baby's photos in Cloth Diapers! I still got ALL of your emails, when you first contacted me, YES I keep those emails for me, and I keep it in my heart for my memory, so when one day , I stop to run the e-store , I will still be able to read your emails! And most of you now, are practically CD experts!

And many times , I think, if I don't run Mia Bambina, I wouldn't got the chance to know most of you! And my life will be pretty boring! LOL.
Also because of my estore I started to blog ( back in May 2006, after 5 months running my e-store) and then start a small tiny CD forum after that. I was just worry , if I open the forum to early I will end up with empty forum , so I must gain more awareness first in Malaysia. Since that forum will be the first CD forum in Malaysia. So before the forum open and the blog run, I need to create awareness, I started at MMB forum , and I know some of my great friends from MMB!

Some times if I think back, running an e-store can be a bit scary. And I realize not everybody are happy with me. But I can't make everybody happy. So I just must accept it.And keep my head up and look at 2008 with full of hope , joy and love , the best of all ...to continue our friendship! Without you all there is no Mia Bambina today!

Happy New Year 2008.....
