We also have a small shop, though we have stocked much. Thanks for your information man I will try to find one of those fancy bits from eBay. But before that, I have one more question for you, which particular size of bits is preferred?

I heard that bits cuts more wood off faster and sharper inside corners. I don’t know if this information is correct since I haven’t used any router bits at the moment, so maybe you guys should confirm first before going to make purchase.

Your informant was right to some extent. Have a look at this Excerpt…
…Large bits cut more materials off either wood or metal quicker than small bits. Moreover, large bits produce more rounded or less sharp inside corners the opposite of what you are mentioned earlier. However, both small and large cutters produce sharp external corners…

The thing is the smaller the task the finer the details and hence the smaller the end mill required. In cases that you are hogging out a lot of material, make sure that you have at least two tool paths that is one roughing pass with a larger end mill and the other pass is with a smaller end mill. Working with two of them rather than one will help you to work efficiently.
I hope that information will help you out.

Looking at your bit, I think it is strong enough. With that kind of bit you can cut at least 1000mm per minute at a depth of about 10mm and about 18-20,000 rpm. Other than plunging than plunging the wood from the edge why don’t you try to ramp in? I think this is much easier way to enter into wood if you are still worried that your tool is not sturdy enough.
