A first for everything

Who says you can't do it? It's mind over matter. There's always a first for everything. And for me today, it would be about making my own video. My first video. Honestly, I've never done it before. Have no idea how to go about it as well. But I guess there was a divine intervention???? Hahahahahaha! I don't know. Coz I just can't figure out how I managed to somehow handle the digital camera on my own and pushed the right buttons on it to get what I was aiming for.

You see.....the thing is, I already went to see the experts at the camera shop to ask them how can I do a video using my digital camera. After checking it, they said that my camera can't take any videos because it doesn't have a memory card.  Even though I did wanted to buy the memory card there and then, but I couldn't! Why? Because it no longer exist!! Yup!! You heard me....it is no longer in production. LOL! That just goes to show how old my camera is....hahahaha! I was so frustrated about it and was trying to figure out how else can I take a video. You see, I wanted so badly to do craft tutorials on my blog. And being able to do a video of about it would be bliss. But because of this tiny issue, I couldn't. I simply couldn't accept this!

And so after much playing with the camera, I finally found the way to make a video. I kept wondering why didn't those guys at the camera shop tell me about it. If I had not given it a try, I would have never known that it can still take videos, even without the memory card. But it can only record for 1 minute and 30 seconds haha! I just didn't care! All I care about is how do I capture something within that amount of time. How to get the message across in such a short time. After much experiment and recording about 10 videos.....recording and deleting one after another, I finally get to record one that I was satisfied with. 

I then did something else too......another "first" for me. Uploading the video on Youtube! Yup! I've never done it before and didn't have the slightest clue on how to do it. I just followed my heart and of course had to crack my brain as well. The whole video thingy was pretty challenging but it was an awesome feeling when I managed to get it done. I really surprised myself today. 

Here's the video I made. A very very simple video. No voice, no wordings. Nothing but my hands showing how to make a flower. Straight to the point. Got the information across . Hopefully the video answered a lot of inquiries from my readers at my card blog. They have been asking me to show them how to make that flower for a long time already. At least I made a lot of people happy today. ;)

Winner of AJL 26



Finally last night the questions that kept playing in everyone's mind had been answered. Hafiz is the winner of Anugerah Juara Lagu 26. I was so happy because I predicted the song would win and it did. For me it's the best song in the competition. He also won for best vocals. He deserved it! He sang with a lot of emotions and full of feeling I can't describe. 

When I first heard the song last year, I fell in love with it instantly. The lyrics are so beautiful, the video was beautiful.....I'd burst into tears every time I listen to the song. Congratulations to Hafiz for singing it so well and also not forgetting the composer M. Nasir and lyricist Budi Hikayat for coming up with this beautiful song. They all deserved to win it!! :) Yayyyyy!!!!

Boiled tapioca


I went to my aunt's house this afternoon and had the chance to eat some boiled tapioca. Been a while since I last had them for tea time. Yummy! She planted the tapioca trees herself at her small garden....and when the time is right she will harvest them.

I like to eat it simply on it's own, no sugar or chilli sauce. Best eaten when it's still hot! :)

Lap table


Currently this is my favourite table whenever I sit in front of the TV. Why? Because I can now actually do work in front of the TV with the help of this lap table. Simple things I can do in front of the TV.....like cutting foam hearts or cutting shapes using craft punch hihihi. Just the easy stuff.

You know how there are so many commercials being aired in between your favourite shows and I can get bored watching them. Sometimes there are so many that I actually forgot what show I was watching in the first place! LOL! :D

So to keep myself entertained, I now can do other things during commercial break. It's like throwing two birds with one stone haha! I get to watch my favourite shows and get some work done at the same time. Cool! ;)

I have 94 followers at my personal blog? Seriously? Gosh, I never thought that when I first created this blog there would be anyone following it.

I remembered my first post here......way back in October 2008. The first post was about natural healing. Funny how I still talk about it these days. I guess I still believe in it. It still makes sense to me.

Thank you so much to those who are still following me here and find my personal blog interesting enough to follow. Hopefully I'll be a better blogger and will be able to write more interesting post here for all to read. It sure is a challenge to write here everyday. I'm learning how to do that this year ;).

No more bread!

Since last Friday I've stopped eating bread. It's a huge step. I'm a huge fan of bread. Especially whole wheat or whole grain bread. Now no more. Starting this year, I'm gonna start this wheat free diet. So I'm starting to eliminate the things I normally eat everyday that are made from wheat products like bread, biscuits and things that are fried using wheat flour. So far, I've managed to eliminate the bread altogether. I finished all the bread in the house and never bought one again after that. 

So let's see....it's been 6 days now without bread. So far so good. I'm not missing it yet. :) I still have to stop eating whole wheat biscuits. I still have some left in the house. Just trying to finish up whatever is left and will never buy or eat them again.

I noticed ever since I stopped eating bread and dairy products, my tummy does feel a lot better. Less gassy and don't feel so bloated anymore like before. I really hope to see a huge difference with the skin rash as well. Because I understand that it does have something to do with taking too much of this wheat products. So hopefully I can see some differences on my skin after a month or so.

RM1,000,000 Money Drop! I enjoy watching this show these days. Credit given to BOBOI for making me interested to watch it...haha. They made a short sketch on Maharaja Lawak Mega about Money Drop and it was so funny, loved it!

This show is pretty interesting because I get to learn a lot of new things from all the questions they asked to the participants. :) I get to test my general knowledge as well and see if I can get the answers correctly. Most of the time I got it right ;). Cool!

About self respect

"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself...no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are... completely, the good and the bad....and make changes as YOU see fit. Not because you think someone else wants you to be different."  - Quoted by Stacey Carter

No dairy products

I'm saying no to milk.....and I'm saying no to dairy products from now onward.  For health reasons. Actually I knew for quite some time now that if I take milk or any food products that has milk in it, I would get stomach discomfort....it will upset my tummy, feel bloated and my skin would get all itchy. But for the love of dairy products, I endured all the pain and itch....all of it. 

I did try to remove some dairy products from home. Tried not to purchase them anymore. Whenever I eat out, I try not to eat food that's has dairy products mixed in it.  But there will come a time every now and then when the cravings comes back to haunt me. 

Sometimes I forget about the hidden dairy in some types of food too. Yes, those foods like cakes, bread, sauces.....there's so many! This will trigger the allergies without me realising it. 

Since yesterday I've stopped taking dairy products. This means, I no longer drink Milo (my most favourite drink at home), no more teh tarik (Malaysia's no 1 favourite drink I gotta say ;) ) whenever I eat out, no more bread, cos I know the kind of bread I buy has milk in it as one of the ingredients....(I'm also trying to stop taking wheat products by the way).....I no longer drink those instant coffee that has powdered milk in it....no more cakes, no more cookies, no more butter, no more yogurt, no more cheese.....oh gosh, I'm gonna miss eating cheese ......and burgers for that matter because I love to eat burgers with cheese in it. If only it's easy to get goat cheese around here. Someone should start thinking of producing goat cheese for people who can't take cow cheese anymore. haha!

So, I'm really going to do it this time. I've gotta learn to sacrifice my favourite foods. Because I know if I don't even try, how am I suppose to get well? I know I can't change drastically over night but this small step will eventually lead to bigger steps in future and bring better health to me, insyaAllah...... :).

New glasses



Finally I got a new pair of glasses today! Yay! Been wanting to get one since last year but never got the chance to make one due to financial issues hihi! But alhamdulillah this year I manage to set aside some money for this and I'm totally happy about it. 

I love the new look and it's so comfortable. It doesn't hurt my nose and it's so light weight too. I sometimes forget that I'm wearing it coz it's so light weight. I love the colourful patterns on each side of the glasses. It looks like glass painting doesn't it?? It sure looks like it to me :). 

The frame that holds the lens is actually dark purple in colour. I've never had the guts to buy glasses that has colours like that before. Usually I would go for black, silver or dark brown. But somehow this time I opted for something different and I love it so much. I didn't even care if it will match my clothes or not. It just didn't matter anymore.

I just love love love love it so much! ;)

Chicken feet


I don't know why but every time I look at this stock of chicken feet in the large pan it reminds me of the witch's brewing pot/cauldron . You know when you watch all those scary stories where the witches would cook something so disgusting in that big black brewing pot of theirs, that has God knows what in it. It always look like it has some human or animal bones and some disgusting ingredients mixed in it.

I always feel like I wanna puke every time I look at those chicken feet but even though they look disgusting, the chicken feet stock actually give a nice taste to your dishes. Especially when you wanna make fried meehoon or meehoon soup. What a difference it makes if you put the stock those dishes. Suddenly it tastes so so yummy! I didn't appreciate it in the beginning but now I have a different perspective of the chicken feet. ;)

No more Astigmatism

It's been 3 years since my last check up at the optical shop. I finally went to see an optometrist this afternoon to have my eyes checked and also to look for a new pair of glasses. My glasses is so worn out and in bad shape for quite a while now. I have had it fixed so many times before. But I got it fixed again this afternoon. I wasn't planning on fixing it since I wanted to get a new one but one of the staff there was so concerned by the way it looked on me. It was not sitting properly on my face. Not leveled she said. Like a "see saw" I suppose hahahahaha!!  And because of it, it was hurting my nose as well. So she fixed it for me, free of charge ^.^. Yay!

I had a good time actually at the optical shop. The optometrist was so friendly, so chatty (felt like I was talking to an old friend of mine hihihi) and the staff there really did helped me find a pair of glasses that I really liked. I always have a hard time choosing a design that suits my face. I almost wanted to change my mind and go home instead of buying a new one but luckily one of the senior staff there helped me choose a design that I was really satisfied with. So I'm really happy with it. I can't wait to get it in 3 days time. 

OK! Now for the good news! After the checkup, the optometrist told me that I don't have astigmatism anymore!! Wow! It's a miracle! I was having it for so many years and now suddenly it's cured! I am so thankful to God for this wonderful news. I never knew that astigmatism can be cured. I suppose it has something to do with the things I've been taking for the past few years. I have been taking so many kinds of natural/herbal supplements, eating so many kinds of vegetables that might have helped and God knows what else that helped contribute to this cure. Whatever it is, I hope it will continue to help me with my other illnesses as well.  

I'm just so happy about it. It may seem like nothing much to some but for me, it's a wonderful news and I'm feeling blessed indeed to receive it. Alhamdulillah. :)

12.01.2012

Most people seem to think that today's date is pretty special because of the numbers. But for me, it's not just about the numbers. It's because of something I did this morning that will change my future. Indeed it has already begun. I feel different already.

It's exciting, it's thrilling,  I feel giddy all over, relieved and at the same time very nervous, a little scared but I'm so glad I finally decided to do it this year. Finally I had the courage to make that commitment after years and years of contemplating. Years and years of uncertainty. Suddenly there wasn't any hesitations, no doubts in my mind at all. I knew what I must do and I did it.

12.01.2012 is the birth date of something special in the history of my life.

Psyllium Husk


I started taking this if I'm not mistaken since October last year. I knew about the great benefits of taking Psyllium husk so many years ago when I read a book written by Dr Bernard Jensen called "Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management". It's a really good book. I was so inspired after reading it that I actually started following some of his advice and managed to lose a lot of weight in just 4 months and was living a healthy lifestyle and developed good eating habits. I could see a lot of improvement in my health and I felt great. But it only lasted for a year before I stopped following the rules due to temptations. Things just went haywire after that. I want to be able to be that person who was living a healthy lifestyle. I want to feel great again.

I realised now that there were a lot of things I did wrong in the past few years when it comes to my eating habits and how I workout. I know I have to change in order to make myself feel better although it's not easy. It has to be done. I'm not taking this because it can help me lose weight. I'm taking this because it can help improve my digestive tract and help improve my skin condition. I'll workout to lose the weight. 

I couldn't take it with just plain water, so I had to mix it with orange juice to make it palatable. It's the only way for me to be able to take it. It doesn't taste that bad if mixed with something else. Otherwise I would puke. It must be taken immediately after I mix it or, it would become jelly like once it is mixed with water and it would be difficult to swallow. You can choke on it too. So it's best to take it immediately when it's still in it's original form. The best part is that if I take this then it means that I have to drink lots of water too. So this is another way for me to force myself to drink more water in a day. 

I take it early in the morning before my workout and before breakfast. I'm loving it :).

Messy


If you want to know an artist's view of what my brain looks like right now. This is it. All messy and needs to be straightened out hihihihi. Not feeling that good right now. Got issues with the feet again and I'm finding it so hard to concentrate with work because of it. It's so irritating, so itchy....so painful every time I walk. :( This is what happens when I don't eat what I'm supposed to eat and I don't drink enough water. This sure is a lesson for me. Starting tomorrow, I will be consistent in taking my medication and will take more care of my eating habits. Other wise I will have to go through this pain again. I really laaaaaa.....I feel so "serik" one this time! Urrrgghhh!

I'm having a headache as well thinking about an order I made last year from my supplier that has not yet reach me. Not really sure what is the problem that's causing the delay. I really hope it will arrive to me this week or else, the mess will get even messier hahaha. Seriously, jokes aside....this is no laughing matter.....if it doesn't arrive this week, I will be in deep trouble. :(

I guess that's the most major thing that's troubling me right now. What else? Well, the tumor is still there and there's nothing I can do about it. I sometimes forget that it's even there. Really??? Yes, really. It's like a another organ in my body that simply been existing for the past few years of my life and perhaps will stay on for God knows how many more years to come. Everybody I know seems to treat it like an old member of the family and therefore there is no issue about it. All is good. >.<

The 8th day

Today is the 8th day of the 366 days blogging project and already I'm feeling stuck with nothing specific to write about for today's post. Yikes! Although a lot has happened since this morning, yet I'm not allowed to share about it with my readers today. Because it's too personal to share. It wouldn't be proper. Because it involves other people in my life to be exact and I wouldn't want to talk about them here. Better to just stick to talking about Lin. haha ;).

Hmm....so what shall I write about right now?? I think it's safe to talk about work? I guess my mind is so consumed with topics related to work. It's all I think about everyday. The first thing that pops out of my head after I have my breakfast. Or perhaps during my morning workout, yes, even during that time, I think about work. I just can't seem to stop. It's inevitable. So much so that sometimes I have to remind myself to think of something else. But after a few minutes, it comes back again. That's the honest truth. 

I sometimes....well, not to say I forget to eat....but I am so absorbed with work that I don't care much about eating. I eat just to be able to have the energy to work and nothing more. I find that I can sit there at my working table and work for hours and hours. But the minute somebody ask me to do something else....housework for example, I suddenly feel tired. Just the thought of it makes me weak. But the thought of crafting gives me energy. Strange but true. :D

Lucky for me, even though the thought of doing housework makes me feel weak, I still do them though. Because I can't stand living in a dirty house. I have my limits. I definitely won't allow my room or house get too dirty. But I'm not a cleanliness freak. No. I don't clean every single hour. :D

You should see my working room or so called studio. It's a mess. But not to the point where the floor is dirty or the room is smelly. I can't stand bad odor. So I make sure I can breath in it and can work comfortably in it too. So, it just looks messy coz there's just too many stuff inside it and not properly organized, that's all. I've talked to a lot of crafters and they said the same thing too. It's just nearly impossible to keep the room tidy especially if you are crafting 12 hours a day. Well, that's me. Perhaps there are others out there who can keep it tidy even though they craft 12 hours a day. Super efficient I suppose. I'm not super efficient. That's a fact.

What can I say, when it comes to crafting, it's something I enjoy doing and passionate about. No matter how tired or sick I feel, I can still get up and do it. It's my life. I love it. :) Imagine what I can do if I feel passionate about other things as well. It will do a lot of wonders for me. If only.....hmmmm.....something to think about. :)

Coca-Cola Zero Sugar


A good friend of mine gave me this Coca-Cola drink after she came back from her vacation in Japan. She  seems to love drinking it so much. I told her it's not good for her health. I myself am not a Coca-Cola fan anymore. I was a fan of it when I was a teenager. But I haven't been drinking it for quite a long time now. But this one is a little special because it's zero sugar and of course because it came all the way from Japan hihi. So I gave it a try. 

I chilled it. It's supposed to taste a lot better chilled. In the beginning it was palatable. But after a few sips, it had this very bitter after taste that was pretty unbearable for me to handle. I finished it though. Strangely enough. Thank God it was just a small bottle hihi.

The question is. Will I ever drink it again? NO. :)

Black-naped Oriole


Black-naped Oriole or Burung Kunyit Besar in Malay, that's what this bird is called. This photo was taken from inside my room. That's why it's kinda blurry and not focused. I took it in a hurry, before it flew away, plus my digital camera can't focus like a DSLR.....what a bummer. Wish I could take a much clearer picture of this lovely bird.

For the past 2 weeks now, this bird has been passing by my window and headed straight to the banana trees just outside my room and tearing up those dried brown layers of the banana trunks to make it's nest. I've never seen the nest before though. Not sure where they make them....probably way up on the trees....to high for me to see. There are quite a few of them flying around the garden each day. It's a joy to watch them from my window. 

These birds makes such beautiful sounds too. A bit loud sometimes. Their high pitch voice could be heard every now and then.

The sweetest call

CC and Ron

I was doing my usual routine this morning, replying emails, facebooking etc when suddenly I heard the house phone ringing. I went to pick it up and guess who was at the other end of the line?? It was my dear friend CC! Yup! This is the second time I got a call from her. Once was when she was staying in Hawaii and now all the way from New Mexico. 

It was the sweetest surprise! I remember the first time she called me, I was staying alone in KL. Her call really cheered me up. And again she managed to do that this morning. Got the chance to talk to Ron too for a brief moment. Funny he mentioned about BOBOI hiihihihi.....he and CC saw the video I posted in my Facebook. Even though they had no idea what  BOBOI were talking about, still they thought those guys were funny. If only those guys spoke in English, they might have understood the jokes. Anyhow, for me, just by looking at BOBOI's facial expressions is enough to crack me up! haha!

Ok, back to the sweetest call.......it was because of the Christmas card and gift I sent her. I'm so glad she received them safely. I was beginning to get worried if the package got lost or something along the way. I'm so happy as well that the card managed to cheer her up. It's the least I can do for all that she's done for me. Still, I wish I could have given more. 

Funny how nervous I was when talking to her.....so much so I even spoke in Malay a bit....jumbled things up....mixing English with Malay at some point haha. Forgive me CC for I was too excited and nervous and all sorts of emotions were all rolling into one. 

I sometimes wish I have a good friend like that staying nearby. It would be so great! Good friends are very hard to come by these days. I kid you not. :)  If you ever find a good one, take good care of them....be kind always. :)

Ombak Rindu - The Novel



I'm one of those people who watched the film first and read the book later. I rarely read Malay novels, or any kind of novel for that matter these days, so this is something totally out of the norm for me. It's not that I don't like to read, it's just that I never find the time to do so anymore. I somehow prefer to read short stories from the Reader's Digest instead. I used to read a lot when I was younger.....story books I mean......thanks to my parents who love to collect story books and of course read them as well hahahaha, they don't just collect them ok......especially my late father.....he read a lot!! A LOT I tell ya!!! :D

But all for the love of Ombak Rindu, I borrowed this book from my aunt and started reading it if I'm not mistaken about 1 or 2 weeks after I watched the film. And I'm only at chapter 7 now! LOL!! I wonder when I'll finish reading this. It's not that it's not an interesting read but, I'm always so busy with work. Excuses, excuses! I must finish reading this book this month!! :D

Well, if you must know.......film vs novel........so far, I kinda like novel better. I like the way the author tells the story too. She has a way of telling the story that makes you want to keep on continuing reading it. My aunt told me that she only took 2 days to finish reading the book. Ha! Can't beat her now. I'm a slow reader. Reading at snail pace. Haha! :D

The idea during breakfast

An idea came to mind this morning as I was talking to old friends I met during breakfast. Sparked by an idea my friends had for their new business. I just couldn't help myself. Couldn't help wondering that it was one of the things that I wanted to achieve in my bucket list. 

I just kept most of my ideas to myself. I tried at first to give them a couple of my ideas but one of it was pushed away all because they thought it was too much work. I didn't think so. I guess I wanted it to be perfect. It just had to be the way I wanted it to be. How I pictured it in my head. Yes, it had to be that way. It was beautiful. Just the way I dreamed it would be. I immediately sketched the ideas in my notebook so that I won't forget. So when the time is right, the ideas are already there :). 

How I wish I could do it some day too....just like how they want it. But I guess that dream will have to wait for  a while. I can't believe I actually wanted to join them at first. The thought came to mind. Do it part time or something. As if I don't have enough work in my hands already! Hah! :D

It was just so interesting. And I can't help but think about how it all happened. All I wanted to do this morning was to go out for breakfast and there they were, wanting to have breakfast at the same place. As if there was a divine intervention that we met and talked about that idea. I mean, they could have talked about something else. There were so many other topics to choose from but instead, they talked about that. So.......I can't help but think that God has it all planned out for me. Did He really??

Not sure how things are going to turn out in the end. Will there be a continuation from today's meeting? Will I get to be involved in this new venture? I don't know. Only God knows that. I'll just have to wait and see. ;)

2012 is here!

Happy New Year 2012 everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's here! Finally here! I'm a little scared......but I just take a deep breath and take it all in slowly.

I didn't make a new year resolution yet. Still thinking about it. Need to pen it down soon.

What came to mind today? Blog for 365 days. Or shall I say blog for 366 days this year since it's Leap Year. ;)

I have been thinking all day about this. As I'm writing this, I'm still not sure if it's going to be something I'm going to truly commit to this year but I sure will give it my best shot! A friend of mine has done it before and I know how tough it was for her to commit to it but I will still do it. Discipline. I'm trying to be more disciplined this year. 

This will be a test for me to see if I can commit to something and not create any excuses for not executing it at the end of the day. I tend to create excuses a lot sometimes. Just to make myself feel better. It's bad. For once, I want to just do it. Just do it Lin!

I'm not going to plan it out or make sure that there will be a specific topic to talk about each day. It will just be something that comes to mind or something I did for the day. Anything. Just anything. It can be about anything.

This is just for my personal satisfaction I suppose. Another reason to be happy about. Why not right? ;)
