… 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:)
Zayden Asher and his weird sleeping positions
If you love Zayden’s photos taken with my iPhone, feel free to follow me on Twitter!
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?)
I just wanted to blog that
Well, and also to say that I’ve been really occupied lately and that I’ll be back soon!
Whoots! I’m excited After all, it’s my first time guest designing. I’m really honored that Tiffany has given me this opportunity. To be honest, this is some motivation to get me back to paper scrapping. It has been a long while!
Check out my 15 random facts here!
(I know, it’s not the most recent photo of myself but I either have Guan or Zayden Asher with me in all the recent photos!)
My first layout will be up soon later on today so stay tuned…
So I was going through my Google Reader when I came across this awesome tutorial by Elsie and now, I really want to sew something up for Zayden Asher
I even did a sketch and I really can’t wait to start!
But I don’t have a sewing machine. Nor do I have any sewing needles/threads. And I still have to go through nice clothing that I don’t want anymore. And with the little time I have, I don’t know if I can make one any time soon
Anyway, if you’re wondering about the title, yes, I was coming to that. The original title of this post was actually “itching to do some sewing” but after I wanted to post the sketch of the plushie, I was debating taking a photo (of the sketch) with my iPhone or my digital camera or Guan’s DSLR when I rethought about it since it is really troublesome to keep uploading the photos.
And then, it struck me: Photo Booth!
And then I started playing around with the effects and had a mini-photoshoot
(I know, I should’ve stopped at “The Sketch” but it’s so fun I decided to share the rest even though I look super unglamorous.)
Messy hair + weird face = caught dead seen in public
The Mirror Effect
The Bulge Effect (Hey! I look like Jackie Chan! LOL!)
The Dent Effect
The Twirl Effect
The Glow Effect (Ooh, I actually look decent here!)
Oh, look! Zayden got up from his nap and just had his feed
(Teeheehee. I couldn’t help it.)
Okay, gotta run. He’s fussing now
