Kain Batik Sutera anyone?

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Went "cuci mata" with a friend today, with my kids in tow. Headache!! And sky high blood pressure i tell you. Anyway, these were some of the kain that caught my eye. The shop does their own batik design so prices are as low as i can get. What you see here is one of a kind. Takde yang serupa..


1. Kain Sutera crepe nina bella - RM 180
 ni portion baju. flower patterns

 ni kain portion.

 there's some flowery patterns at the kaki of the kain. ( warna kain nampak berbeza disebabkan jurukamera kurang profesional :P)

2. Kain Sutera Jelatang - RM 200  (peachy pink)

baju portion.

the kain portion.

3. Kain Sutera Jelatang 2 - RM200 (hijau muda)

this is something similar as the above but different design.

the kain portion..

4. Kain sutera crepe rainbow - RM 280 (pattern terbaru) so the price is quite high. Originally sold at RM 380

ni exclusive design. design untuk baju

ni bahagian kain dia.

( i have to say this one really looks exclusive)

5. The last piece is Kain sutera crepe satin - RM 250

(not for sale - hehehe but negotiable)


Any interested buyers, please sms me (0122347184) and let me know which one you want. Not much kain coz of time and patience constraints..Good thing the owners were kind enough to babysit too!! If you are not in KL, I will be glad to post it to you with no extra charge..

Thank you for dropping by. Maybe next time I'll feature caftans too.. prices of caftans is RM 30 - batik design. The shop also does their own ready made blouses, baju kurung and jubahs from batik.. very2 interesting. but prices are high too.. so far the ones i asked are 200rm above. Highest fetching up to 400rm..


What you'll find in a woman's handbag...

Monday, November 16, 2009

Again, this was something I received in my mail recently and I felt I just had to share. It is very funny though and it kinda makes you think that it isn't a wonder why men tend to generalize women to a certain extend. To the owners of these pictures, hope you do not mind me borrowing them. Thanks in advance.

Exhibit A -  your average bag with your usual items needed by anyone. Handphones, wallet, pens, pouchers, erasers, a set of keys, notebooks..

Exhibit B - extra content which is a knit kit.. not my handbag though..hahaha

exhibit C - same content..again.

exhibit D - well, some extra stuff that you may find surprising there. yet they may not be a surprise at all...
exhibit E - again same o same o..

exhibit F - the usual stuffs

exhibit G, H, I, J and K below...hehehe.

exhibit L - well, this one is as close as i get to the contents in my bag. Except that I have a pair of baby socks...and some other items ..i could snap a pix of mine but I shall not..:P

Now, the conclusion from all these pictures shows that basically a woman's bag will contain some make up, accessories, their purse, hand phones, pens, keys and paper...any kind of paper if you please.. baby items and some piece of clothing, food and the list may go on and on. 

Which brings our thought to one similar situation - 20 clowns riding in a mini minor in the circus.. 

Now who says we can't perform our own circus act with our bags too...

How thee procrastinate..

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

How many of us always do a To do list daily or weekly? We always spend at least 30 minutes of our day to get a to do list so that we are much more organized at the end of the day. Right? Wrong! Half the day goes by, I always find that I have not even done 25% of the things on my to do list..

How could that be? Did I miss something here? Where did my time go? And most importantly to do what? Actually I know where my lost time went. No one to blame but me, myself and I.. I procrastinate, much. It's like a bad habit..in fact it is a bad habit. There! I said it, out loud. I am a procrastinator indeed. And I hate myself for it.

What have I done to overcome this? I read a lot of books that's supposed to motivate you and get you of that heavy derriere of yours, books that suppose to make you jump into action, bla, bla, bla.. So far, some books i finished. Some not. Maybe i should try hypnosis. Maybe. Maybe not.

But I know I will overcome this and be a new person..starting tomorrow? :P

panda-moniumly slow...

My new knitting project

My bag is still unfinished..don't know why it's harder to continue and get it done. Maybe it's the color that i chose for the bag. (Note to self, next time choose brighter colors.) Started to do a cover for the tv or dvd player, to match the crochet i completed earlier.. It's much easier to do but meticulous in a way because i have to do 64 square pieces and join them all up together.

One piece takes about 30 minutes to do on one sitting but with 4 kids around, one piece will take me about a day..that's like a lot of 5 minutes sitting.

 This was taken a few days ago.. Did this in 3 days thus the 3 pieces..

Good news is the last couple of days were some very good days so i have done up to 9 pieces thus far..and i still have 53 more pieces to go..or less if i decide that the cover would be a lot more smaller than originally intended.
May i have the will to finish this one off before the end of the month..ahak!

Honey Bee by Zee Avi

Monday, November 9, 2009

I am a Honey Bee
Shunned off from the colony
They won't let me in
So I left the hive
They took all my stripes
and broke off both my wings

So I'll find another tree
and make the wind, my friend
I'll just sing with the birds
They'll tell me the secrets of the world

But my other Honey Bee
stuck where he doesn't want to be
But my darling Honey Bee
I'll come save you
even if it means
I'll have to face the Queen

So I come prepared
my new friends say
they would help me
get my loved one back

They say it isn't right
the bees have control 
of your mind
but i chose not to believe that

So we'll meet 
in the darkness of the night
and i promise i will be there in time

We'll be guided by my new friends, the butterflies
bring us back to our own little hive

Oh my other Honey Bee
no longer stuck where he doesn't wanna be
Oh my darling Honey Bee
I have saved you
and now that you're with me
We can make our own honey..

When it rains it pours..

They say a picture can paint a thousand words, so for this entry i am going to leave it to several pictures to tell the story..

enroute to MIL's house.. this is on the second day it rained non stop..wet, wet, wet...

looked like lakes on both sides of the road..

this is one part right before trouble..

roads with overflowing water..

this is after we took an alternate route to my MIL's house. The shorter way has closed to light vehicles..no car smaller than a four wheel drive dare to pass. I should have taken a picture of Machang, where what was before a full view of padi fields was now replaced by a lake of water.. seriously it was like a river 2 km wide..

Rainy season is here..

The monsoon has come upon us again, as loyal as a dog.. Every year, come November to December, rain will fall, making the earth wet, and everything else looking bleaker than normal.. With it will also come the wet laundry, the floods and the flu.

Today the sun didn't even get the chance to come out and say Hi. It's already almost 11 am in the morning and the weather is still cool enough to keep me staying under the sheets..

It's been raining on and off since yesterday. Seems I will have to come up with lots and lots of indoor activities for my kids and me.. Guess now i'll be watching Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Barney, Barbie in Mermaidia, Barbie in The Twelve Princesses, Barbie in The Diary, Barbie in ..well you get the picture.

And this would also be the time for me to finish the book my spouse had kindly bought for me, New Moon.


Knitting is for me and you...

Monday, November 2, 2009

I am a real klutz when it comes to art and crafts.. I seem to remember when i had to do any crafts in school, I personally had help from my teachers. Thank goodness, even though she (my teacher) was a lioness but i guess my "innocent cum idiotic look when it comes to crafts" must have somewhat softened her hard demeanor. :P

Anyway, now at the prime age that i am now, I suddenly feel an overwhelming urge to do some sewing or knitting if you please.. Can you believe it? I can't but hello, start knitting i did..

well, my first project - ambitious person that i am, i decided to try and make a childs handbag..hua3x! End product must look like so

I did begin this project of mine a couple of weeks ago, and in a weeks time i managed to get a quarter of the way done. 

By now, it is just halfway finished and i started to get tired of knitting the same patterns over and over again..so i started a side project which was to make a .. umm, i don't know what to call it but here it is 95% done..

I guess for a craft klutz like me, to be able to do something even resembling a bag is a victory.. :P
I suppose I will keep everyone posted on the rest. especially when i am done with the bag. At least I know I can finish something I started..even if it is just knitting or crocheting..
