FAQ a.k.a. My Rambling

This is a page where I'm going to answer frequently asked questions about beads, my business or even myself.

(1) What happen to website?
It's still on the internet but it's not active anymore. I can't update it anymore. That's why I started this fotopage to replace it. The prices in there are no longer valid.

(2) Do you have a bead shop?
Brick and mortar shop? Not yet because I don't have the capital and time to do it. This is only a part time business. I work full time at a GLC and my schedule can be pretty hectic. At night, I need to spend time with my 4 children before I can spend time on beads (which usually only can happen when my baby falls asleep).

Occasionally I open manik booth at selected events such as Amcorp Mall flea market (certain Saturdays), NoraManik's beading class (when she invites me) and sales events at Menara TM. Check the upcoming manik booth dates at Manik Booth page.

(3) Do you take tempahan jahit manik?
No or not yet at least. I only bead my own outfits or my close relatives' (FOC, of course). Reasons - no time and I don't like the extra stress. Beading is a hobby and for me a hobby should be enjoyable. I usually need some time for creative thinking (I like to experiment with new design) and the commissioning itself. I need to be in the mood to bead, which is not a good attribute for a beader-for-hire.

(4) What is the different between Miyuki and Miyuku?
