Friggin' Tired

This is my 5th night of non-stop working, sleeping at 4am only to get up at 7. For the benefit of the uninitiated, I am presently in High Point, North Carolina attending the Furniture Market. It's appointments and meeting customers in the day time, negotiating prices, marketing program planning, new designs reviewing and most important of all, cost numbers crunching as well. When night falls, it's calls back to the office (when sun rises over there) to get in touch with the design team, feeding them data from the day's meetings and getting new numbers ready for subsequent meetings the next day.

For those interested in furniture, check out my new designs for this spring. Goto my ShutterFly Album.

It's deja vu to the army daze where my personal record was 11 days* in Taiwan without sleep. So by right 5 days of "slightly deprived" sleep should be cakewalk but alas I am now 15 years older. As much as I hate to admit it, lim peh really lau liao....

* I do catch a couple of winks whenever we get onto the 3-tonner and head for the next checkpoint. Other than that it's really just coffee, cigarettes and my colgate.

You really can huh? 3 hours of sleep only? If I were you, I would lock myself inside one of the furniture to nap! ;)

Bor pian..... this is work lor.... although I must say that not every market is like that. It seems that only this time, it felt kinda extreme.

Besides, there is no bathroom in the furniture. So locking in is not an option. ~LOL
