All is well

I have so much to tell, yet so limited time to write. Well for starters, I am grateful that I am feeling so much better now. No more flu, very minimal coughing.....almost gone in fact. Alhamdulillah.

I did something I hadn't done in months today.......which was cycling to the post office for an early morning delivery! hehe! Loved it! Been so long since I last did that. One of the postal clerks was so happy to see me there with my blue bike.....she loved the fact that I can cycle there. Not having to drive all the way there like others do and to her that seems like fun. She thought I lived close by...well, she didn't know that I don't live right next door to the post office.....my house is quite far away from that place.....it took me about 15 minutes to cycle there and another 15 minutes to reach home. I cycled quite fast too. If I were to cycle at a slow pace it would have taken me a much longer time. It's a good workout for me :).

I was shocked last night after watching "Dining With Death" on AFC channel. From now onwards, I'm never going to eat cashew nuts again. No sir! Never! I'm never eating it again. It's not just because it can give me severe allergy attack but also because I was so disgusted with the way the cashews were processed. Who knew it would be so bad. Also found out that people with kidney problem should stay away from eating starfruit....it could kill ya! Yikes!

Am making cards like non stop since God knows when and it doesn't seem to show any signs of stopping any time soon. It's good....I love it......I just wish I have more time in my hands....more ideas and more doe to buy toys for my card making hehehehe. As if I don't have enough already. The ones I have in my studio are enough for 3 years of play and yet still untouched. :P Feel bad about it but I know I'll get around to play with them soon enough. :) Will make sure I will have the time to do so! hehe!

My crochet bag is almost done! I'm so excited about it....but, I can't take all the credit because........here it comes..................................................I didn't do it!!! LOL! My aunt made it for me. She's so sweet! She knew I am busy and need that bag desperately and so she made one for me just the way I like it. Hope to be able to use it soon. I'll be doing the finishing touches to it soon enough. I want to embellish it with some beads to make it look fancy hehe! So happy about that! ;) Will share photos of it here soon!

Oh....almost forgot....for those who have never seen the movie, "Letters To Juliet" before.......WATCH IT!! I saw it a couple of days ago on Star Movies and love love loved it so much. Mostly because Vanessa Redgrave starred in it.....hehe. Love her in all of the movies she's acted in before. Something about her that makes it so pleasant to watch.....she definitely has the charisma. :)

Ok....time to go and get some work done. Tomorrow is going to be another wonderful day. That is my prayer. :)

Busy bee me

Yup that's me these days.....a busy bee..... no time at all to feel bored coz there's always something to do and somewhere to go. I've been so sick for the past few weeks and am still not 100% AOK......still coughing and the flu keeps coming and going whenever it pleases. Why can't it just go away and leave my lungs and nose alone..... :P

I must say.....it's a luxury for me to be able to blog here these days......and it feels good to be able to do so right now....I love writing here....honestly...

I found out something really shocking this week on my Mom and Dad's wedding anniversary.......something that answered all the questions I had been wondering about all these years......finally it's answered. Now it all makes perfect sense. Now I know why I'm so sick and why no medicine actually works on me. These past few days have been so emotional for me.....feel so sad when I think about it. Thought of my Dad a lot too.  Imagined what he went through. I wished he knew. He must have wished he knew about it too. And he will never know.....coz he's gone. :(

The next few months will be difficult for us.......I don't know how we are going to face this terrible thing..... :( I just pray to God that he will give us guidance.....give us the strength to deal with this. I gotta admit....it has affected my work a little....coz I keep thinking about it all the time....worried I am, worrying all the time.....I hate having this feeling....just hate it. :(

But having something to do is good......work related to art is good....it keeps me happy.....at least I have something that helps keep me happy. Something that no one can give me now. When I'm in the zone......that's when I'm most happiest. When I'm at the park working out.....I get another kind of happiness.....another kind of feeling....a feeling that calms the soul too..... :). I was really surprise that someone actually realised I was missing for the past few months from cycling around our neighbourhood.....I have to admit I haven't been cycling there for a while coz I had been so sick. And it's kinda funny when people miss seeing you pass by their house each morning. Really funny. Whatever it is.....I'm glad I can do it now.... :) Woohoo!

Sweet memories

How long has it been? Pretty long.....the last time I blogged here was sometime in April.....miss blogging here actually. Miss expressing myself here more like it hehe. :D

What have I been up to all this time? Well, a lot has happened since my last post here. I attended an engagement ceremony of a close friend, Azilah.....as you can see from the photo below.....finally she is going to get married! Yay! So happy for her :). I didn't even know that the engagement ceremony's  theme color is pink.....I went there not knowing about it and just wore whatever fits me! haha! It was a really beautiful ceremony. She looked gorgeous! :)

I also took a short vacation to KL. Got to meet my dearest friend, Mango! Yup! I never knew that one day I would get the chance to meet her in person. I thought that I would have to go to Sabah in order to do that but it just so happen that she was in KL at the time so I got the opportunity to meet up with her and we spend  some time hanging out together. I feel so blessed to be able to meet her. It's like a dream come true! We did took photos together but I'm not allowed to publish them here...huhuhu....too bad. I wish I could. 

During my stay in KL I was invited by my friend Mango to go to Yusof Gajah's studio in Gombak. I never thought that I would get a chance to meet him in person and also his lovely wife, Puan Zakiah. I've been a fan of Pak Yusof's art work for a long time now.....ever since I was studying at ITM. Been to his exhibition and art gallery before too but never got the guts to talk to him hehehe. And for the first time ever I got the chance to talk to him in his studio and I was as nervous as hell! Maybe he noticed it too! LOL! I had a great time there....lots of ideas came up in my head.....inspired by looking at all those wonderful artworks and also inspired by our random chit chats on arts and crafts. :) It's something I'll never forget! :)

I had a great time in KL although the trip was pretty short.....short but sweet. Lots of sweet memories hehe! I came back and life was hectic again. Lots of orders to get done and lots of future projects to think about and proceed. It's hectic still.....till this date hehe.....and I can feel my body is suffering from all this. But that's life laa......you'll never get anything done if you think you can't make it.....just have to have a positive mind and go for it! ;) Mind over matter!
