Things to do? Bucket list?

Haven’t been updating my blog and yet have just got it renewed for another year with WordPress.. Crazy..

Now… Shall I update it often? Well.. I’ve been trying myself involving with more sewing projects, get to do some dresses for myself that u can wear to work. Thanks to the sewing learning centre that I’m able to do that, confident enough to read patterns from sewing magazine, brave enough to cut fabrics that I bought and patient enough to finish it.

In the open for this year is to learn water color painting, doodling, calligraphy.. hmm.. seems like my bucket list is getting longer, and of course not forgetting to travel and see other parts of the world.

Ginger crossed for all these…

No, no photo for this post..I do update my insta once a while.. Do follow me there..

 

Chao for now..

Hygge

Came across this word today while going through some new books.

Wanna know more about what it means? Check it out here “What is hygge?

What capture my attention is the way one should enjoy life and one simple steps that I can start off with is lighting up candles! Ha! That part is easy..

Another thing that I definitely would continue is doing what I love. .. oh.. and fill myself with gratitude.. it can really changes my mind and how I look at things.. I know from experience is that I will definitely see more good things around if I start to be grateful.

Have a great weekend and say hello to November.. soon it will be CHRISTMAS!!

Is it the end?

No, definitely don’t think so!

Yes, we have gadget that connected us to the world, let us read books and magazine online, even download them, it let us know our location and how to get to another place. Yes, it can let us endulge in some games, facetime, chatting in groups, share photos and video. Let us feel connected to others… and yet sometimes it is the other way round. Do you really think that you ARE connected!?? Do you really think that you know each and every one of your facebook contact? Do you?

Well, my concern is the existence of books, of library. Will books be disappearing from this Earth? I really don’t think so..

I personally would prefer to hold a book on my hand, even though I can’t make the font bigger. Especially magazine, I still prefer hardcopy magazine. Say that I’m old fashion, I don’t care.

And the existence of library? Yes, they will surely be there. How else can anyone just walk into a place and get hold of information just like that when they don’t have the gadget themselves? Yes, from the library!

I like what is being mentioned in this message by Mr. Wong.

“libraries have become the informal community meeting place where people of all races and beliefs come to seek personal and professional development, meet friends, do some personal quiet self study and so on.” – Wong Vui Yin

It could be a jamming place for the youngsters? Why not? A DJ training place? A music room? The idea is endless.

I do look forward to my online video time using my phone. But if you ask me if the library will not exist in the future, no, definitely NOT!

Happy reading you all!

Why travel?

Had just been back from a visit to Hong Kong, a familiar place but still foreign for me. A place that I’ve been vising for the past few years and yet every time there are new things that I notice, new experience that I gain and always, always a new feelings. Never once that it feels the same even when I went back to the same place, same spot.

When I did a google search on why travel, there’s a page where people share on what they think and showed fantastic photos that they’ve taken. It is just amazing what traveling can do.

For those who love to read, “The world is a book and those who do not travel only read a page” – St. Agustine.

Go travel, not just to see new place, to experience their way of life, to eat what they are eating, do what the local do, experience it, face it and let it be a part of your memories.

Travel to see how small you are. Travel to see how big the world is though the internet made the world seems small.

Travel, do it while you can.

Happy New Year!!

I know this is a late post.. I mean who would still be wishing people happy new year when it has already been the 4th day in year 2017? Well, honestly I do! ‘Cos I just got back to work today. It has been a fun, crazy end of year stuff and I’ve extended my leave till yesterday just to breath a bit. Bringing kids to school is a major task, you know?

Anyway, how is everyone doing in the Net sphere? I’m seeing sites talking about resolution, plans, and projects. If you ask me (like you would, ha!) what’s my plan or resolution.. well.. so far there is none, I can’t think of anything yet, just yet. Maybe the plans or projects will come up or show up by itself. I’m taking it in day by day.

I do hope I can do more in decoration, sewing, scrapbooking… seems all on the creative side. As for career wise.. oh well.. let’s just put that aside for the moment, I think what’s more important now is not my career.. I want to see my kids grow.. I want to see my creativity side bloom, I want to learn new skill, say maybe brush writing. Google on the word “Brush writing” and you’ll get so many beautiful handwritten lettering that you can use a wall decoration, journaling and simply doodling.

And… this came in and showed up on my face today:

The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp

See if I’ll be able to flip through it and get a bit of knowledge from there.

I do hope I will be traveling this year to places that has snow. To somewhere that I can sleep over without having to book a hotel room.. maybe will need to consider looking into AirBnB from now on.

Until then, I’ll keep searching for “The Secret” ..

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.
