I feel like I managed to accomplish certain things today. Perhaps it’s because Zayden Asher is recovering and he’s not as cranky as before I managed to do a layout for Scrap that Baby! and two journal pages (have yet to upload those though). I also managed to upload some stuff into my Flickr

(If I didn’t mention, I’m taking an art journal class at the moment and it’s awesome! :D)

Zayden laughed when I opened this photo to edit.

My sister returned this whole stack of DVDs I’d lent her the other day and as they were sitting around the floor (totally not back on the shelf yet), I decided to watch them. Yesteday, it was Toy Story. But he got bored after the opening scene (I actually quoted every line out loud!) Guess what today’s Pixar movie was?

My poor cover…

Just a note: I love getting (relevant) comments everywhere

Over the weekend, Zayden Asher was having a high fever but when we brought him to the doctor’s on Monday night, he couldn’t pinpoint what exactly caused the fever. But when rashes broke out yesterday, my mom said it could be false measles. False measles (roseola) affects kids between 6 to 24 months and can’t be diagnosed until the rashes appear (which does after the fever breaks).

The funny part was that Zayden didn’t seem really sick. Aside from the high temperature on Sunday and Monday, he was still very active and happy. Well, he was crankier than usual and his appetite wasn’t that good but if you didn’t know he was burning up, he look like any other healthy baby :?

Anyway, he’s 8 months old today (it usually slips my mind whenever the clock strikes 12 on the 13th but I’m always reminded because my mom always text me to congratulate on the X number of months I’ve been breastfeeding)

The poor, spotty baby

Can you see his little tooth?

… he is giving himself a present—a diving trip this weekend

He turned 22 on Sunday (Yay! and oops—a late post) and we had lunch with my family at Koon Kee Restaurant & Pub and dinner with his parents at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao at Ngee Ann City.

Anyway, the weekend was spent doing up ATCs and some digital layouts (since Saturday was (inter)National Scrapbooking Day). Do check out the two layouts I made

The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) is nearing and I hope the local scrapbook store have some goodies I can get my hands on

I had almost forgotten one exciting thing! I won something at a giveaway on Michelle’s blog! So exciting! (And I was complaining about not winning anything over the weekend.)

(And I know everyone’s waiting for this moment:)

Sooo… I saw this on Rachel’s blog and decided to do it too

1. When do you feel happiest?
When I get what I want! Haha… Not really. When I feel loved, doing what I love, and loving those around me.

2. How do you take care of yourself?
I’m terrible at this. I snack most of the time and forget my meals sometimes. I guess I am trying to stay positive with the right mindset.

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
I believe I need to be externally motivated. But, ultimately, I’m still internally motivated. I have to convince myself to do things then things get done :?

4. What do you do for fun?
I find this a rather tough question now because I can’t find the time to enjoy anything fun! But I love photography, cable-skiing and getting crafty

5. What intimidates you?
Social gatherings where I’ll usually feel awkward among strangers and second degree acquaintances.

6. What is something you’re proud of?
Getting my diploma. It’s weird but I had always thought that I wouldn’t complete my studies in that way

7. Finish this sentence. I never _____________
ate durian before.

8. Favorite vacation spot.
I’ve only been to Malaysia and Batam. Neither of which are my favourite. I can’t wait to have the chance to go New York City or Hawaii though. Surf’s up!

9. Today is a (rate from 1 – 10).
7. Zayden Asher was pretty cranky in the morning and my arm is aching because I had to carry him around central to get some package posted. He’s napping away now (that’s why I’m doing this!)

10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you’d know _____________
that underneath this bright sunshine personality of mine, I’m pretty dark and twisty (at times) inside.

(Seriously, how can you not melt with that smile of his?)
