Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Felicia (Froglette)

“Writing a letter of appreciation is something I’ve never done before, but from now onwards, I will make it a point to write one for every Christmas because it’s so meaningful.

There are so many people in my life I want to thank. Naturally, the first people I want to thank is my family. Even though sometimes they are unreasonable, but ultimately, they just purely care for me and my wellbeing. I want to thank my parents for providing me financial support for my whole life up to the second month of internship, because that was when I got my first pay and I weaned off their money and started using my own instead. Without their support financially or mentally, I don’t think I would have been able to survive in this world. I want to thank my sister for always being a listening ear to me, giving me wise advice when I don’t know who else to turn to. She can be very annoying at times, but when she’s not, she’s a delight to be with. (I know I annoy her too.)

The next people I want to thank are my friends. They have kept me going throughout my whole poly life, made school so much more interesting, and made my life a much more enjoyable one. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today, because they all have influenced the moulding of my personality in order to deal with the harsh world.

Next, I want to thank my boyfriend for “training” me to become a less annoying person, and to have a better temper. Before I met him, my temper was atrocious. Maybe not towards my friends, but towards closer people in my life. He has taught me that not everything will go my way because people sometimes don’t meet my expectations, and I can’t flare up at them because of that.

Last but not least, I would like to thank my JFF friends for accepting me so warmly into the JFF family. When I make any mistakes, I will get corrected in a nice way. I have indeed learnt a lot from working here, and I dare say that I’m not the same person I was at the start of internship in terms of personality.”

Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Mel

“在这2014年里,我学到了很多,首先感谢我的公司给了我在农场学习和工作的机会,让我增加了许多工作的经验。其次感谢新加坡的政府给我们提供了一份就业的机会。除此之外,在即将到来的圣诞节中,祝愿大家圣诞节快乐,工作顺利。

在2015年,我会更加的认真工作,为公司做出自己的一份力,能够更好的做好自己的本职工作,为公司增加效益。并且希望我们的裕廊牛蛙场在2015年里能够越做越好,招揽更多的餐馆以及顾客的喜爱,让新加坡更多的人知道我们裕廊牛蛙场。”

Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Charlane (Frogician)

“”In the spirit of Christmas, there are many things to be thankful for. But what strikes a chord this season is the love of a family. This year my family have stood by me to help me through some tough and challenging emotional setbacks. They have become my pillar of support to be thankful for which have kept me going. Their encouragements and prayers are a comfort to my soul knowing that they will always be there for me when I am in need. Their simple actions like buying meals and sending me to work exemplifies their boundless love and care. This season, I celebrate the spirit of love with my love ones and I hope you will too.”

Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Chelsea (Frog Princess)

“There are so many people whom I have to say a BIG THANK YOU to! Many who have joined us at some point in this froggie biz. Firstly Mel, who has been with us for 16 months, now, is most responsible with her backend duties and reliable as a frontline combat soldier.

Anna, who supported us in the 2nd quarter is the sunshine of the farm. I finally got married, much credits to her, Mel and Kaiting who held the fort for, most of the weekends!

Many thanks to James, the staunch supporter to JFF, who has introduced  Charlane, now our Frogician to us. I always see that childlike innocence in her especially when she flashes her signature megawatt smile. Thank you, Frogician for training my patience and reminding me constantly on the appreciation of simple pleasures! To Felicia, our Froglette, who shines as a task exterminator. She is always asking for things to do so that she can write it on and strike it off her To Do list.

To Mrs Frog, aka Mum, for preparing our meals so that we work hard knowing that there is always a warm meal waiting for us at the mid and the end of the day.

To the rest of our team of production workers and drivers! What is JFF without each and anyone of your contribution?? Much gratitude too to all our dear friends and customers.”

HO HO HO! Do you want to have an ECO-FRIENDLY X’MAS this Year?

Now, how is it possible to have a X’MAS that coexists with ECO-FRIENDLY? They are not really friends. But what can we do to defuse the tension in this over-consumerised period where wherever you go, you get BIG signs which shout at you “BUY BUY BUY!”.

Now Frogs are Green and they are a constant reminder to us on how we should practise 3Rs when making daily purchasing decisions.

Today, we will give u a recipe to reuse all the paper bags you have accumulated over this year or for many of you throughout many years! * Don’t try to kid yourself that it will come in handy on other days, because today is the day!*

Now say this pledge OUT LOUD:
I will NEVER buy another ream of wrapping paper FROM THIS MOMENT ON.

I hope you realize by now that we are quite serious at what we preach.

So once you have your paper bags ready, prepare a good pair of scissors, a glue stick, a loaded staple, scotch tape which we will try to use sparsely.

1. Tear out the handles glued to these paper bags. Keep it for other decorative uses later.
2. Now remove the cardboard which acts as a base for the paper bag.
3. Open up seams on the side and you will have a good size ‘wrapping paper’ ready for your action.
4. An act of professionalism: To trim away the torn edges.

20131217-184315.jpg
5. You will notice that I have cut out the paper according to their design. Different sides could be used for presents of varying sizes.
6. Decorative: Now use the paper handle to tie into a bow or a heart shaped “paper clip”.
7. Xmas Card: Remember the cardboard base of the bags? Now unleash your creativity and use the remaining of the paper bags or some torn wrappers/ old magazines to decorate your Xmas card.

8. Remember to pass on this Message of spreading a GREEN HEART!
X’MAS CAN BEFRIEND ECO-FRIEND ONLY WHEN CELEBRATED WITH A LOVE FOR NATURE!

Flowers are cut out from torn used scraps of wrapping paper. Pinks petals are from the left overs of pink paper bag. Some call it FLOWER POWER!:)
