My friends call me Pei.
I was a doctor but now I am not. Now, I am the proud owner and creator of betterthanblouses or "BTB".
I would like to thank the following people whose support is why I CAN do jack-of-all-trades-things instead of jack-shit.
My husband for the second part of the saying, for the support and encouragement and the direction. Although I get pissed off with you for watching tv in the morning, you are the epitome of being self-employed. I know you love me very much and I love you too. Hahahahahha.
My Asian parents who didn’t care when I didn’t go the route they invested in, whose aesthetics I inherited, and whose calmness comforts. Mummwhitetop, I know I am difficult to work with, but you are very much appreciated and your taste is impeccable and I am so glad you are the brand’s ambassador.
My in-laws for teaching me HOW TO SEW, for being there always with the bare necessities and for making my life so much easier. Honestly, selling out at that big event that made me half rich did not make me as happy as coming back to a clean house with happy cats.
My siblings, especially muimui, who say bad things about my copycats, for offering help and for standing in the gap ALL THE TIME. Thanks for being the breadwinner, the driver and the comedic relief.
Jono, my friend of almost 2 decades, thank you, thank you, thank you, for making this website a reality, for taking my pictures and for answering all my annoying howtodothisahohthebuttonisheresorry. And for marrying such a sweet person, Lou, who always makes BTBs look better than BTB and for just being of service.
My other friends, that help buy me fabric, that cheer-lead, that help share the word. You all know la who you are. Hahaha.
And of course, thank you my BTB fans, what will I be without you? I am just so happy you like and that you #buymyshizzz. I love you guys.
BTW, I know I didn’t win the Oscar or anything. But this is an achievement for me ok. Leave me alone haha.
