Spa Party by Butterfly Projects and 12 Awesome Collaborators! - The Inside Story

Jul 9, 2013

Is there any girl in the world who doesn’t love pampering session??  Well, not that I know off so far J  This time around I would to share my experience from the point of view as  one of the SWAT  (super woman admin team) for The Butterfly Projects. This time around I am going to try my best to give you the inside story!

Do you now that the planning of this Spa Party were done months and months before the actual date? From the draft and paperwork’s of the campaign, the process of communicating with the collaborators, the kick start of the entry contest, the consolidation of the contest entry, the winners announcement, the follow up and so many other that it might need a separate post just for the process.. haha

So where do I come in? Basically Ayna and me help Tammy in terms of corporate communications and we also help with other clerical and admin task. Which is such a small contribution comparing all the hard works done by Tammy. We were not monetarily paid (okay la to be fair we do get lots of TLC hahaha) neither does Tammy. We do all this voluntarily. Ayna and me come in to help out because we both believe in what Tammy is doing. We love her determination in organizing fun n sweet community (imagine all of that hard work) with no monetary goal or self-benefit at all. To me it is amazing and inspiring.

Literally, we spent our time (sleepless night)  effort (cut all the items la tampal this n that la prepare the goodies la) money (yes own hard earned money, the cost of the spa designs template, the cost of printing, cost of the name tag, cost of the balloons, numerous phone call and etc) minyak pergi sini sana and own sweat (nasib I punyer peluh wangi hahahaha) just to ensure that all of the collaborator and all the guest are happy before, during and after the Spa Event.  We are so grateful that we have Laura, Nikki and Sabrina who willing to lend a hand and understand what we trying  to do and what we go through.

We hope everyone understand that we have tried our best and we are not a company (with lots of marketing budget) that is launching a specific products and invite guest to test the products and all that pampering. First of all, it is not a profit company it is a community, we are not making money (spend money lagi ada) the only reason we sells those lips scrubs is to covers the cost of the helium balloons (n yes, helium balloons is not cheap *cry*) Tammy made the lip scrubs by herself and I help tampal sticker on the bottle. Even though we manage to sell only 20 bottles but we are so happy that we able to use that money to pay for the balloons!  We are actually aiming to sell more so that we can use the money to fund for other activity.. Well it is okay, we still deeply appreciate butterflies support!!

Let’s start with the last 7 days before the Spa Party going to be held. We received few cancellations of RSVP. Walauwei.. heart breaks!  Anyhow we totally understand as some of it is personal reasons. The sky is not that dark after all, good news is there is no ffk on that day! Thanks Butterflies!

The night before the event, Posh! Nail Spa owner and her staff helps us during the goodies packing session. You think packing so easy? Kami macam factory worker tau hahaha.. yang comel punyer factory worker :P  Thanks to Suanne from TT Mask and her two cute boys who came n help on the night before as well.




During the day, we came at 10am to continue touch up the place while waiting for other collaborators to arrive. We have 11 butterflies who came earlier that others at around 12pm  since they need to rehearse for the PnP runaway show.  Ciklily is very early and we truly appreciate her support ;) comel je die duduk at tangga tunggu event start. We love you!

Around 12.30pm, I was assigned by Tammy to give the brief of the timeline and event flow to all the awesome people who will work on that day. We have Aspen Spa staff, Posh Nail Spa Staff, TT Mask, PhotoBox, Tres Chic, Good Friends Café, and the 11 pnp models on that day. Thanks you so much for the great cooperation on that day ya!!  Do you know that Signoria Ferragamo came all the way to visit the Spa Party too? How Sweet right?



Then we have butterflies arriving one by one… I was at the registration counter kacau’ing Laura. Had a great time working together with her. She is such a sweet heart!




I cant help myself but to hentam some of the foods provided by The Good Friends Café since it is within my view range. Hahaha.. I mean literally the food station is just opposite of registration counter!  (Do you know that the our earlier catering collaborators pull out on last minute due to some reasons, so we are so touched that Good Friends Café willing to jump in and become our Saviour!) Thank you for that!



On that day, I was also assigned to be the time keeper. So you can see me running around with papers. I help to ensure Tammy & all collaborators aware and proceed as per the timeline.  It is one of the fastest 5 hours of my life. From the event start at 1pm -5pm (we extended till 6pm) But Phew… time is ticking on that day like nobody business..





Out of all the treatments and the fun station setup, I managed to redeemed my TT MASK (after the event end haha) able to get superb pedicure (thanks Sabrina jaga pintu while Laura n me buat pedicure) and try to make my DIY lemongrass bath salt and yes sempat selit2 take picture with the photobox machine. To me it is like an accomplishment haha…


Congrats to all winners, yes we have lots of competition on that day! We have best photo contest, we have 10 lucky draw by Posh Nail Spa, we also have 10 lucky draw by Onlybeauty.com.my (do you know that most of the items in the goodie bag is sponsored by Onlybeauty.com.my) , we have Pink n Proper Model’s Winner and consolations prize and we also have 3 best dress winners.



Thank you for taking time to read my lengthy post, I just like to share the Spa Party experience from my point of view. The Butterfly Projects are not perfect, definitely there are few hit and miss before, during and after the event. My intention of this post is just honestly want everyone to understand that we have tried our very best and we will continue to improve from time to time. Last but not least this Spa Party will not be materialize if we don’t have the support of all the collaborators and all the butterflies!
