My Life & A Death

Miss this blog but I'm hopelessly busy doing something else (ye la tu). Just want to inform uols I went to MPH just now, saw "Sew Hip!" (July, Issue 30) & grabbed it before somebody else took it.. hehehe... When it's time to pay, I realised the staff had reserved the mag for me. So if you live in Sg Petani, one "Sew Hip!" is available here! I've got mine.. legaaa..

I also purchased "CrossStitcher", "American Patchwork & Quilting" & a book "Ibu Kool Bapa Hebat". Yeah... I know.. action speaks louder than words but can't get over the BIG "M" (malas) & the BIG "G" (guilty) yet. Btw I'm on diet now & believe it or not I lost weight! Busy dieting, heh? No worry. I still eat my breakfast, lunch & dinner & still consume my fave dishes once in a blue moon. I believe in the theory that we don't have to starve to death to lose weight. What we need is self-discipline.;D

Did I tell you that I went to kak Corine's place last week? Err.. I don't think so... Guess what! I bought gorgeous fabrics to be added in my collection. Mmg cun!I just couldn't resist the temptation. Rambang mata! Next time I'll show off my findings. Can't do it now coz the aroma of laksa is too much to bear. Having a hubby who can cook like a chef is a dream come true. I'm soooo lucky! "Bunga kantan" is not added tau. So I don't have to worry about the after-effects.:D

p.s. 3 days ago, my form 3 student, Nor Hazrah Idris passed away. She & Atikah were on Atikah's motorbike & a van hit them from behind. Fortunately Atikah survived with a broken leg. So sad as Hazrah was fatherless (her father died because of cancer), her mom is blind & her only sibling, her brother in Form 1, isn't as bright as her. I went to see her for the last time. She looked so peaceful as if she's sleeping. May Allah bless her. Al-fatihah...:( Her mom is a very strong woman indeed!

My Prezzies Are Ready & Not Ready!

Cantik tak? This IS NOT MY HANDMADE ya. It's LIZA'S MASTERPIECE. Want to see her other masterpieces? Click HERE . Guess what! I won her 2nd Service GA. I posted the fabrics & now the bag is ready for me. It'll be MINE! Thanks Liza! So excited over here! This prezzie is all ready for me. Yeehaa!!

Fyi, my sewing life seems to be abandoned at this moment. I've decided that teaching is my top priority so I kinda neglect my messy sewing room. I think my sewing machine is quite dusty. You should see the room. Such an eyesore! Even the living room is like "tongkang pecah". Too many materials stay there. Some are related to sewing & crafts. Many are related to my teaching profession.

Well, some people can handle a lot of tasks at a time. I think I'm the opposite. That's why I must organize my 'other' life first. I need to make sure I balance all tasks equally. My 'customers' are my students so they of course will get my attention. After attending a 4-day course related to my profession in Jitra recently (should visit Anique but too busy attending lectures), I feel I've a lot to do. Trial PMR is just around the corner & the clock is ticking. Gosh! How come I've started to get cold feet? It's as if I'm the one who will sit for the exam.:P

A lot of things have occurred but I just do not know whether I can share all here. This world should be about crafting. That's why I'm a little bit reluctant to express myself here. So my apologies to all who are still waiting for my handmades. Will try my best to be a good 'manager' in life. The truth is I really miss my craftworld. But feeling guilty doesn't help. I end up doing what I should do: TEACHING.

Don't worry. I'm OK. I still love this world so you'd better watch out. Once the school holidays come back, once exams are over, you'll see me lots of me & my handmades here. Now, let me enjoy my life slow & steady, getting the inspirations from all 'otais' here & there first.

p.s. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO MY 2ND SON, HIFZHAN HAZWAN who celebrated his 9th birthday on 13. Sorry ya. I couldn't make up my mind yet. Be patient yer! Your prezzie is so not ready!
