CHARLIEism Phone Cozy

It has been raining cats and dogs for a few days in the island. Looking at the calamities around, sometimes I really wonder will the doomsday actually reach, one day. The weather is changing like nobody business, as if any of us couldn't even voice a NO to deter it. Ok stop rambling for the moment and shall we back to Skyler's iPhone cozy for her friend who hearts a character named Charlie the Unicorn.


That's why Skyler insisted the term CHARLIEism to be sewn. Laugh.

Owl character from the game, Birzzle which I hand-painted its eyes on plain white brads.

And a checkered, light brown brad to replace the button without her knowing in advance. Hope Skyler and her friend will be amazed by this little surprise.

Before that, do you? :)

Trick or Treat?


Hey sweeties, how was your Halloween party? Was it fun? Anything quirky? Seriously, I just realized yesterday that I did not attend any Halloween party before. Yea all kinds of festive, leaving this alone. Weird thing though. Anyway it doesn't matter much. Glad to spend my day with Kris and my baby boy, Anson. Just in case you did not read about him before, he is my lovely nephew. We were having some fun just now playing spot the difference together. Laugh.

Happy Halloween! Share your stories with me if you'd like to. :)

Hey Movember is coming!

I love moustache
Hooray, can't wait for the next few days and it'll be November! Favourite month out of all darlings. Now it turns out to be favourite Movember month after I am in love with fine handlebar moustache ever since I incorporated the element in my old logo for mylittlejoops. Laugh.

Back to my day, I was out with Paris and we just got ourselves a new cardigan. Hers full in red and mine is fun red & white stripes. Love it to the bits the more I am looking at it right now and I found this whimsical set of I Love Moustache from Polyvore then to show you my cardigan. Failed mission though. Will show then in upcoming post when I happened to dress in.

Oh yea, still remember my Mr. Joops moustache ring? They're now lying gracefully over my little corner. As usual, limited pieces available. Grab them here now!

Of 1911 And Peri-Peri

Was out with Kai Yan and we just caught in a spontaneous movie craving. Laugh. We ended up with Jackie Chan's 100th movie: 1911 a historical epic of the founding of the Republic of China and Sun Yat-Sen's forces. God knows the rainy weather out there was like so cold even in the mall. Can't help rushing for our late dinner at somewhere warmer, I mean really warm. Wandering around the mall, thinking what kinda meal might be warmer; Nando's became the place of the night we hang out then and had some great chat. Oh gosh hot drinks soothed us so much better from shivering. Haha, yes it is. Too bad, it was just me doing the talk as the waiter seemingly chasing us away. Guess I should leave the talking to him next round. Laugh.

Blue

It was raining cats and dogs last night where Ling and me decided to go for something warm then for our dinner. Steamboat! Every single words uttered through the night was like pointless, really. Out from nowhere, we just spoke it out and simply enjoyed this kinda moment. You know what, when you are standing at the crossroad, you start to trap in a circumstance where your mind won't usually function well. Give it a shot of random, a stray of them can inspires greatness; if you believe in me. :)

Later, I saw this little doll Blue (I just named it). Someone timid, tends to keep everything deep in her heart to protect herself. Now I recalled my task to get a super belated birthday present for Pek Lin on behalf of Nicholas. Hey babe, if you're reading this, I hope you will love my choice. And, it took me quite a long time not to judge myself through other's eyes. I am improving, so do you ok?

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in
their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

Sugarless Coffee

Venture on new line of craft is seriously a daunting task, still doing readings on supplies, printing and technical supports. Wonder when can I really start working on that with my shoestring budget. Decided to let go the previous plan of art pendant owing to some issues and yes, I am a dreamer. I can do many things.

看着自己一段百般执著的珍贵、单纯的友谊渐渐变质的滋味,比不加糖的咖啡来的苦。

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

How are you people? Seem like I am getting fewer posts after back in home. Just couldn't stop working on spring cleaning where yes, I seriously throw some goods this round. Wonder if you have the same habit as mine, usually I will just take-clean-put it back kinda person but guess I have too many stuff right now. Laugh. And if you sense me really, something sad happened though. I need some time and some work to clear it off. Things come, things left. A norm. So does it happen on friends. Beauty of life, when it comes imperfect and you see it another way round. That's what I can say to make myself more comfortable.


Photographed my new Inkadinkado Snowy Owl acrylic stamp from LazyBee and freshly cut owl applique which I going to turn them into bag charms in a short while. Coming soon in my shop!

Struggled

Back university with Michele to do her a favour in promoting her online competition. Get to meet Mr. Badrul and received his call later. Yes, it's hard to find job in Penang. Why not accept the job that you get first instead of seeking for what you want? I know, I know. Sometimes, wondering am I really wrong to back to the island again.

Stunned, for something occurred. I've made a step, somehow. Oh well later we went to Gil for our late lunch. A couple of friends, a glass of iced drink made my afternoon better.

Gil's zakka styled menu.

Jin Yin, working on her assignment.

Chee Kin and Kris.

Overall,  an appetizing set of lunch but the mood, ain't the same. Anyway, just a quickie. Former boss offered me a permanent position with a quite decent salary but, not in Penang...

Wingtips

Attended the rescheduled interview, finally, today at Penang. The only job I applied in the island, basically. When I decided to come back here, I knew pretty well that my career path goes harder as I don't know what I really want. If I really selected for the job, guess I will take up the challenge that I don't frequently mess around with figures. I can do it, maybe. Though it just seems like another task impossible to others, on me.

And I am so sad over a personal matter. You meant a lot to me, really. :(

Your whole body, from wingtip to wingtip,
is nothing more than your thought itself, in a form you can see.
Break the chains of your thought, and you break the chains of your body, too.

The Last Goodbye Dear Jobs


Steve Jobs the man behind Apple has passed away. It could be a loss to everyone who adores this visionary leader like me. Ain't it difficult to be a successful leader, but for one who live throughout his life and career with dreams that makes thing totally different.

Quoted from him, The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. Guess I should settle down and grant myself some time and seriously thinking it through on my future path.

Seriously, I am inspired and keen to find out more about this man of wisdom as I reading through more and more of his inspiring quotes.

ps. may the wise man rest in peace.

Burp!


Caught some fun during dine in luncheon with June and Geet May at the new food court in Bangsar Shopping Centre. Each of us was given a credit card sized passport and you paid only upon leaving the food court. Simply find the quote is rather cute, have you burped today? Laugh.

Kinda in love with the designer Maurizio Galante's masterpiece after watched his Paris fashion show VCD this afternoon.
