It's My Mama's Birthday Today!

My dearest most beautiful Mother turns 57 today.

And although my Mama doesn't read my blog, I just want the whole world to know how much she means to me.

Here's me quoting Washington Irving,

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. "


I Will Soon Took the Handmade Pledge...

When I sew my own bag on Sunday!

What started as an overnight chat with Uyuun on how one can make a bag out of a pillow became a reality when I woke up very early Sunday morning and urge (as Uyuun puts it) Uyuun to come to IKEA with me to find fabrics so we can start sewing!

Boy, it's been long since I got myself busy with any craft project, and Uyuun's call really hyped me up that I couldn't wait to get started on cutting the fabrics when we got home! In case I haven't confess on this, YES I LOVE to sew! I LOVE my mom's Sewing Machine (although it's old, but is still good to use... I once broke the needle because I tried to sew my jeans LOL)

And so there were we, 2Costureras@WorkTM, chalking and trying to arrange the fabric so I can sew later on. Uyuun did most of the cutting, because it's a thick fabric, and I'm a lefty so it's kind of a hassle trying to cut in a straight line. I did all the sewing because apparently I am the only one who's good at sewing with machine LOL.

It took us 5 hours to get the bag done, because we need to move around a lil bit. The chalking and cutting was done in Uyuun's Room. Ironing was at the corner in front of my Room, and sewing in Mama's Private Living Room.

But the Outcome was fantastic. I absolutely love it. I don't have a picture of it, but if you want to see how it looks like, you may do so here,at Uyuun's blog.

This is our first project, more to come. Been eyeing that Charlie Bag, maybe I can start doing it later this weekend. Maybe I can start a business on this one day.

Watch out for my blog extension 2Costureras@WorkTM where I will showcase all my bag creations CosturerasTM, and we'll definitely take orders!


**UPDATE** I managed to transfer the images from our bag today. Here they are, what do you think? :D (Pictures not so perfect)

In no time, You'll be fine

I took the day off today.

Half day off, actually. For no reason in particular, at all. I just wanted to.

No worries about it. I've got about six days of leave from last year to spend, before June comes.

I just wanted to be home.

I deserved it. The 24hours in a day of my life go so fast that I don't even have time to catch up with the life outside the 8-5 job.

Yes, she is whining.

My Fiance is going on a camping trip tomorrow with friends - Syahlan, Syed and Farul. Definitely extremely am going to Miss HIM.. GOSH!

Anyway, Aah... Good for him, they've been planning this for quite some time.

Owh, don't worry about me, I am happy at home. Besides, the survival camp they plan to do doesn't suit my current condition. It's the time of the month, and there's no clean water supply at all? Neahhh... I'd say my Thank You straight away. I'LL PASS.

I've got some stuff on the list to do tomorrow with my sister anyway.

Go bargain hunting and Manicure Pedicure session right after...

Heavenly isn't it? Ahhh What's not fun to be a girl?

I am Happy

What was once a dream, and was only limited to my mind had come through.

I was on a quest of finding my long lost friend, and now she is FOUND.

Thank Goodness for Facebook, thank Goodness for MSN.

I never thought I'd see Dominique again when we lost contact 15 years ago. So did she. I tried many ways, the Internet, MySpace, Friendster, and of course by going through my boxes of old mails but I didn't find her address. I was supposed to write to her and her my new address in KL, but I didn't. And that's when the chain broke.

But my memories of good times with her never fade.

I missed her so much I'd Google Earth Glasgow and see her house, and showed it to Babe every other time. Until I got this idea to search for her name in Facebook and of course, there were many Dominique Sweeneys so I just guessed and email the Dominique Sweeney that I know.

And she replied.

And she remembered me and that she's delighted I found her. She never thought she'd see me again. Catching up with her was fantastic! We have 15 years of catching up to do!

We told everyone we know about how we found each other and we just can't stop smiling!
And today, I saw her ID as online when I signed in to MSN this morning.

Yup D's online and Gosh it was wonderful to speak to her! She stayed up until 2.30am her Local time just to speak to me! I am overwhelmed!

D and I knew each other since we were 11. I just moved to Glasgow, Scotland and didn't know anyone else in school, and D became my friend, my best friend. She was sweet and nice. We'd go everywhere together!

I told D that I'm engaged and that I'm getting married. and guess what? She's the only extremely excited! She asked about my preparation and what's my wedding outfit's colour's going to be... and when I told her I haven't started anything yet, she was the one who's worried!

That's my D, always looking out for her friends. I promised her I'd come to visit. You never know... She might be down for my wedding!

Looking forward to speak to her soon! I amm sooo happy!
