What I've been up to...

I am very busy you know!! lol!!

Working everyday from Monday to Saturday... just thinking about ONE Sunday off day already make me sad... wonder when D day will come where TTS will be off on Saturday! SIGH..! 

I have lots of things I wanna do! And there's only ONE Sunday!! ARGH!!  

I wanna craft, I wanna sleep in, I wanna read my books, I wanna run a movie marathon... I wanna accompany Hubby, and chores to do! (thank goodness this week the maid came and iron my clothes already!) I wish Sunday has 48 hours!! ya right.. -__-

Anyway cut things short (what time is it now) express blogging!

I crocheted!!

A very very simple baby bootie! I meet Lee chin like last 2 weeks and she is due in May, I thought I'll get crochet up at least A PAIR by May... But my thread is too thin, and I think I've used a small hook... the baby bootie size is less than 3"... how baby can wear when only my two (2!) fingers can go in??!

I'll need to try again... this time with bigger hook!

Oh, side note, Daiso @ The mines selling threads and large crochet hooks.. ^^ they even have crochet doilies.. and only RM5 for 3 pcs!! *hyper* I bought some... :P

Something from the States ^^
Paper wishes having sales.. and I bought some stuffs... hehe.. I wanted to order via d middle person, but he qoute me to freaking expensive, in the end the amount I paid for international shipping is a lot cheaper than his quotes -___-

Rose ribbon
These are like USD 2.39.. after shipping also less than RM20.. I believe they are selling higher in here.. for 1 yard.. Since I never own them before... why not try?? ^^

Vine ribbon set
I couldn't find these here ( I found similar, but ugly) and they are having sale for a set.. I bought them to try.. I used to look for them frantically last time when I first saw them online and on some other ppl's lo and it was kinda expensive... and knowing how I hoard things even if I purchased them I wouldn't use them.. so I actually bought a Martha Stewart vine leaves puncher instead to replace.. haha.. cos I can always buy papers and re-punch them! But since they have sales.. I couldn't missed it right?

I was just putting them back to my "treasure box" and I found pics from Tioman (yes.. still have 2 hubby pics) and I already have a little idea to use these.. I hope I can execute my project quick enough before its abandoned... :/ Now.. looking for ideas to do a jungle lo.. ^^

Yellow mini paper sunflower
These are like 49cents! Why not?? I kinda remember I have bought this before.. but I couldn't find it now.. OR maybe I wanted to get them last time.. oh well, if I really did bought this before.. mean I have more to use.. *light bulb!* hehehe...

Far east clear stamps
Well this is what I'm excited about! Oriental themed stamps! Gonna make CNY cards next year!! never seen this in KL before.. so hyper!

Someone make me do Christmas card first ok.. I still "owe" ppl christmas cards... lol

This is my first time purchasing Dazzles... after seeing many times how they demo it.. will try them soon.. hmm.. perhaps those ferns is just right for my jungle theme? :)

I bought this ruler ribbon from TH as well.. just missed taking its pic I guess.. lazy to snap, load and post ady.. late.. hmm.. anyway.. its really cool.. vintage feel.. and on sale too.. so... yeap! I wanted to get that hanger paper clip TH have, but then on second thought I thought I wanna try curl a normal paper clip and see how it goes.. I did it and threw it somewhere in the beads box.. not that nice.. but I guess a few more to practice and it'll be fine... hehe..

Ok.. wasted my time already and its 1.24am now.. plan to watch a movie but my eyes are too tired to stay open.. nitey..

I'm Back... again...

... and I hope my mojo to blog is back too.. :P 

As you know.. I'm getting lazier in taking pictures... 

Anyway... first thing first.... HappY CNY 2012!! ^^ 
This is my 2nd year to celebrate with Hubby... and as the Lee tradition goes... first day is spent in Genting Highlands... Bai nian with Uncle Lim and get BIG angpauss... hehehe..
My outfit on first day.. ^^

I posted this to FB and someone commented I looked like chio tai tai (stylish rich married woman) wtf..

Happy that I can still fit into the cheongsam.. Mummy bought it for me in our Melaka trip in 2010 (she was looking for a Cheongsam to wear for my wedding dinner, and I also wanted a cheongsam.. it was on a sale rack and it fits me)... the cropped tweed jacket? RM65 from times square.. hehe.. Nowadays I somehow becoming more and more "value-considered" when shopping for clothes.. maybe I have had enough during my flying years... maybe I've becoming cheapo... maybe branded clothings are a bit over the top with their prices nowadays... maybe I have earn lesser now... maybe...... argh.. when I wanna get a branded top from a branded shop.. I'll always think there are always look-a-like/inspired one selling somewhere out there.. and I'll rather spend that RM200 to buy that branded top and use it to buy a few more inspired.. Im cheapo like that nowadays.. hehe ^^

Ok. By the time I've done blogging this CNY is over... XP

What's next is an update of my work life... Hubby and his bro have join ventured and open a handphone accessories supplies in Seri Kembangan... and my job is a Admin cum HR cum counter girl.. lol.. ok I mostly do everything.. except holding the $ and accounts.. as I know nothing about accounts.. >.< but.... Im learning as much as I could... *gulp*

Mens hanging up the signboard a day before soft opening on 1st Dec 2011

I designed the signboard!!  ^^ *proud wtf* but then Hubby insist that he THOUGHT about the logo.. I DREW the signboard... -_____-"

fine... $&%^(#*@!

Anyway.. I have to be more hardworking now that I partly owns this business.. XP  working days are Mon-Sat, 9.30am-6pm... only a Sunday off.. Ok its not as bad as working for that 2 months in De H*** Biz.. I get Sundays off..=P

Oh, bout that De H*** Biz... its a long story.. but let me summ it up:

2 months | "spy" | learning how people works in this industry | long hours | 1 day off a week on weekday | far | low pay | boring |  I quit.... the end.. 


Ok, I'm blocked..  dont know what to write summore.. I guess Im ending this here today...

Oh, btw, I'm missing on crafting... Resolutions 2012: I want to make myself craft something each day.. perhaps starting to crochet back is a good start... and I aim to only crochet flowers/butterflies...and collect them in a jar.. and they will be my embelishments in my future scrapbooking... Otherwise.. I feel like I'm wasting my $ buying SO MANY craft supplies but yet unused.. =/

Then slowly go up to scrapbooking.. I am still aiming to FINISH at least 20 more A4 sizes layouts before venturing to 12x12...

Or if I cant make it.. I'll continue to hons my crochet skill.. perhaps start practising with baby booties.. hats.. everything??

Ok I promose you 'al only 1 resolution first.. keeping it up needs strength!!

I'll post photo once I've done a flower. or a butterfly.. ok?

Now I gotta go.. laundry's done, and I wanna watch my drama and do manicure ^^ taa!!
