Special day 

​A good start and good  activity for my birthday. I get the chance to go up Mt Perahu with a classmate of mine during high school, and a bunch of friendly strangers.  Thanks to her, I get to go for this trip.

Have thought of it but never really think  of the how.  I guess the Magic is working. I mean waking up at 4am just for this seems crazy at first, and I couldn’t even sleep properly the night before, anxious. Wondering if my alarm will work, or even if I could wake up in time, or if my classmate can find her way to my house.  Above all these,  we made it to Tamparuli around 5 plus. Waited a bit for the rest to show up and get our gear ready, our gear here are all actually belongs to my friend, got a torchlight and climbing sick (not sure if this is the proper name), and get ourselves ready to climb.

It does really feel like climbing ‘cos the hill is pretty steep. The stick really came in handy. It really help’pulling’ me up and got balancing. It also helps when getting down, considering that it is steep and I could easily trip.

It took me roughly about 45 minutes to get to the top.  Phew, hard job for me and I knew I look so pale halfway, haha..

So here, a birthday gift for myself..

Half way..


See my tired look? Haha.. Exhausted!

A peace sign is a must for this!

Mt Kinabalu is at the right.  Magnificent view huh… We were fortunate that it wasn’t so sunny and there were even cool breeze up there.


Tamparuli town..

So proud that I did managed to get on top.. Yippee…

Oh and one last photo of the hanging bridge

Well, if you are interested to go there, I’m sure you’ll be able to find out with your GPS.

Happy Birthday my boy

1st birthday pages for Cal

For those of you.. (like there is any..hahaha.. no no no.. I’m referring to myself actually :D) who is waiting to see my finished page on Cal’s first birthday, here they go..

I’ve journal around the photos on both pages, add the alphabet B and number 1 cut from cardstock. Put a few brads and ribbon on them. Punch 8 red eyelets on the corner of the middle photo and weave ribbon through them. Journal on computer and printed out on the cardstock, cut and inked them.
Had enjoyed doing the pages.. Sorry that they are a bit blurry and dark cos I took them at night.. should have taken them on broad daylight.

New stuff in my mail box

Just got my scrapbooking material from scrapbook delight in Brunei. This is their first time shipping outside of Brunei and being the first client of their, I get special treatment of course 😀
I’m still excited for having all those papers from Dream Street, they are thick and the design are adorable. In a way, it is also giving a time to crack my head to do new layout, one is to preserve the beautiful design on the page and another is try to fit in all my photos into the layout. And guess what? I just did it.. well.. almost done two pages of layout about my son’s first birthday using D.St papers, which I scraplift it from Simple Scrapbooks Magazine (Nov/Dec). I’ve fit in 9 little 2.5″ square photos on one page, and another page with 3 coaster size photos and one little photos which I’ve matted into coaster size in another page. I just love the swirl on the passion fruit design paper of D.St, so I’ve trim out some of the initially would be covered swirl and let them show on top of my photos. I’ve accented two photos of me and my DS with square brads.
I use Heidi Swapp big flowers and Kellly Panacci Sandylion flower stickers as the embellishment. Now what I will do maybe is some doodle and use more flower stickers. Another thing left is the journalling.
Let you have a sneak preview of what I’ve done and once I’ve finished the two pages, surely gonna post them up.
