My Day part II and final!

I love this card so much. Its hand crafted by Diva . The card comes together with two bookmarks. Thanks beb.
Thanks for the lovely surprise and the thought. Love it so much. Sayang nak pakai.
Finally after a few years (yes you read it right) Selphy is mine. This model is already obsolete but I found one shop still selling this last piece. Price is only RM299 rather than RM499. Beside the printer is my scannar. Too bad I havent have time to play with these. Busy busy busy...either im at the office or on the road and when we reach home its time to zzzzzzz.
This card and fridge magnet is a special gift from my bff Iqa, all the way from Brooklyn. Iqa I love it so much... Dragonfly and butterfly...yeah!This lovely magnet will remind me of you and what you wrote on card really meant so much to me. Thanks sweetie. Love it so much.
Ok the end. Sorry for the boring posting about my day.
Have a nice day everyone. Chiao!

ps - thanks a lot for all the wishes from forum, chat box and sms'es.


Rizal came to my place in a hot sunny Tuesday afternoon and bring along these lovely gifts for me. I’m touched and honor to receive this fabulous stuff from him.
Thanks Rizal, you’re so thoughtful. I accept it as a surprise gifts for my birthday.
For those didnt have a chance to know him, Rizal is an instructor at Institut Kraf Negara or National Craft Institute. Do visit his blog and you'll amaze with his works.
This wonderful garden rattan with special frame is the last piece and I’m the last lucky person to receive it after Emila & Manggis. The moment I received the frame I keep telling myself, Ida please behave and don’t jump in front of Rizal. When I arrived back in my office, I called most of my friends and starting to show the goodies I received. It’s more to explaining the rattan rather than show off. Check out his tutorial for the butterfly http://restnrileks.blogspot.com/2008/04/rama2-kraf-rotan-rattan-butterfly.html
How pretty it is? It’s darn pretty. I plan to hang on wall but for now it sits nicely at our display cabinet. Perfecto!

This is perfect for my studio. The flowers made from rattan will be a great wall deco and if you want to make for yourself please follow this tutorial, http://restnrileks.blogspot.com/2008/04/tutorial-rattan-craft-flower-bunga.html
The Rattan Basketry Coiling Technique is perfect for my scrapbook stuff, yippee!

The cucuk sanggul is a custom-made in Malacca. I plan to use it for coming Aidilfitri but I just had my hair cut yesterday L . I hope by that time my hair is long enough to hold a cucuk sanggul.
Rizal, im going to Malacca this coming school holiday. Any yummy restaurant recommended?
If you ask my dear hubby he will say that I can’t get enough books, I love books either its blank, novel, pics or what ever, it’s always give me a good vibe. I love this notebook so much and love the 3d of it cover.
What can I say, I surrounded by wonderful people. Thank you so much for wonderful though and I’m honor to be your friend.
To others, I love you guys too….thanks for dropping by and being my friends.
Bye-bye and have a nice day!

My Day

Finally everything falls into places. It’s not an easy task and I have to work within a very limited time and the worst thing is the slow internet connection. What a bummer!
Hopefully I can catch my breath after this and keep blogging as usual. My humble apologized to all of my readers.

Thank you for all the wishes I received and a lot of gifts too. I promised to share with you my birthday photos right? Actually we didn’t snap much photos as we’re too busy driving here and there. Just let me walk you through the place we went that day. Hope it won’t bore you.

1. We started our day at McDonalds. Ireen having her fav. Sausage Mc’Muffin and enjoying watching Winx Club on television over there. This is the only day she has a chance to watch Winx Club. You’re right she skip school today but not her fault we (me n dh) decided to give a day off for her. It’s my day and I want her being my side. Love her so much! We have to wait till 11am before we can leave for a next spot. I’m so happy she enjoy her show at Mc’D.

2. A friend called and sings a birthday song, thanks Zizah. Love you! I received a lot of sms’s too. Thanks guys.
3. We went straight to IKEA and grab some stuff. It’s sale happening there till 17th August. I bought a few frames for my scrapbook layout and some organization tools. She loves this desk.
4. It’s almost 2pm when we finish shopping and its time to feeds again. We went to one of our favorite restaurant i.e. Warong Penyet http://www.waroengpenyet.com/ at The Curve. Yummy ayam penyet with beef soup and my fav drink Soda Gembira. Really word it. If you in town you should try their food and don’t forget their yummy sambal for extra kick. Their special sauce in a bottle which most of people didn’t aware is very nice when you eat with the fried chicken. Just squeeze the sauce on top of chicken. Nyum Nyum. I feel like going there right now.
5. It’s movie time, so we went to Sunway Pyramid. We watched Hancock. Bought some doughnuts and some shirts. It almost dusk and I feel so tired. Still I have one place to go. One day I want to skate too. Can we go Sunway Lagoon? Please mama, daddy?
6. The Garden, I went to Art Friend a craft/art store. For my lovely friends who I knew they definitely love this place, Art Friend is in 3rd floor beside Borders. The arrangement of stuff not so nice but most of the needs stuff is there. I did a lot of damage here. While Ireen and dh went to Borders and grab some books. A perfect gift from dh n Ireen.
Love it so much.
7. Finish shopping and my legs started shaking. We settle down at one of the kopitiam till the mall close.
8. Arrive home almost midnight.

Part II will be coming soon….have a nice day….ciao!

KC Spirit Pages Swap

I made this page for KC's swap. It's 6x6 page title From Malaysia with Love. I put some tag with note and a mini postcard about Malaysia for them. I do hope the girls will like it and can't wait to receive back all the other pages from them. My album is ready to fill up the pages I'll received later.

Ronda as a host I presented her this humble name tag. Hope she will like it. Maybe some of you noticed I made a lot of this tag with same style. I have very limited time to play so most of them are made earlier in bulk and just waiting to paste the name.

So long for now....adios amigos....

Bookmark swap

I have to admit, my schedule overload with a lot of things.
I have a very long to do list and with all the problems arose its hard for me to keep focus.
This bookmark I made before the house brake incident. It’s for cari & lovescrap swap.
Thanks to Diva for hosting this fabulous bookmark swap. Myself is a bookworm though my girl noticed I'm more to scrapper than bookworm now. But I’m sure she will impress with the entire bookmark we will receive later.

(grunge office affair bookmarks )

Oh did I tell you we share a studio now? Yes she turns to scrapper now. She took my tote-ally (actually it’s for Jelly and am so sorry Jelly budak ni buat hal pulak kali ni) and claimed her space on my scrap table. After the incident I decided to do some revamp inside my studio. It’s not 100% ready though but I’m happy with the new look. Let me say it’s a hard time for me now but I know someday I can get over it. Thanks to wonderful support from family, friends and neighbors.

Bye for now….

Another Happy Mail

I finally received these amazing ATC's for projek-swap-kita.

Felis Catus by Megat
Weird, conceptual buzy illos by Rizal
She designed by Cecima

They are really talented artist and I’m amaze with their creations...they represent their unique style and the way I can’t imagine. Kudos!
Now my question to the Projek Kami team, how you store your atc? I plan to put on display inside my studio but not too long.I'm scared it will collecting dust if I displayed for a long time...

Some love I received together with the atc's. It's not from one person but from two people.
Who can refuse handmade stamp by ManggisMangosteenskin , so details and neat.
Come on sweetie open up your store, I can’t wait to be your first customer. Thanks for sharing your precious creations with me.

Rizal sent together his rotan creation with the atc and I’m gonna use it as a bookmark. You can check Rizal rotan’s creation at his blog. A very talented you man.
The one that make me flattered, Manggis shares the ‘cucuk sanggul’ she received from Rizal. That is so sweet of her.

Thank you for the gifts, atcs and the most important thing thank you for being my friends.

Happy Mail

Thank you Wati babe! I read her blog few days ago bout her precious candle posting and didn’t realized one of those candle is for me. Thanks babe!
Love your tag and yes I definitely want to meet you again!

Silent challenge no.1

I know most of the scrappers in Malaysia like to remain offline and really shy to share their layout. I created this challenge specially for them. Let them play and exploring and yet remain silent. For those who like to play along you're welcome too. The reward for this challenge is "more page done."

"The rules is simple just grab any of your 90's photos but must be at least 5 photos in the lo. Yes you read it right. I want at least 5 photos of 90's inside your lo. "

04 July 2008


Ireen : Mama, since you started scrapbooking I seldom see you reading.

Me : err...arrr. Mama read a lot of scrapbook magazine. (Oh boy my girl noticed my books collecting dust)

And I feel so guilty for this....
