The name INTIMA sounds stylish and classy and yes, it’s the ‘company’ I work with. Basically, the experience of being in INTIMA is incredible and worth sharing. Let’s begin by showing the INTIMA Office.
Our external INTIMA Office.
Well, it’s located just outside INTI. There’s a meat shop just beside and most of the time, we’ll be there during our lunch break. If you take a closer look at the photo, you would roughly know what we deal with. *ahem* Yes, my colleagues and I deal with lingerie everyday.
Next, the introduction of 12th INTIMA. We are in the 12th term, obviously. And there are 12 of us too. Here are my colleagues, together with their position:

Basically, we are the intermediary between the INTIMA headquarters and our affiliates, such as Victoria’s Secret and Triumph International.
It’s very simple. Firstly, affiliates would submit proposals, mainly to organize events (lingerie exhibition, intimate nights) and produce new products (undergarments). The proposal needs 3 important autographs in order to be approved. The first one to sign is the Vice President of Activities. He checks the feasibility of the proposal. Next, the Treasurer, me! Yes, I provide the amount of subsidy and check the budget of the proposal. Lastly, the President. His autograph means the proposal is fully approved by INTIMA.
After an event is over or a new product has been developed, affiliates are required to submit an Event Review Report. This time, it requires 4 autographs; VP Activities, Treasurer, Auditor and President. As usual, the VP Activities signs, the Treasurer checks the account statement and signs, the Auditor rechecks the account statement as well as the validity of the receipts and finally, the President signs just for the sake of signing.
