don’t you just love miffy?

i remember how my mum used to sew curtains, bedsheets and stuff with miffy all over them.

there’s a possibility that i might still have them somewhere.

just the thought about making stuff excites me.

you might prolly not know this but i used to sew embellishments onto my bags, recreate my clothes and alter my fabrics just for fun. well, okay, i admit i wanted to “unique-fy” my outfits too ;)

oh how i want to sew again.

what do you think?

HELLO JAPAN?! January 23, 2010

i dreamt that i went to japan last night and bought my self some cool, funky old school cameras.

i woke up happy.

till i realised it was but a dream.

but i still want to make it to japan! i’ve always heard/seen so much about it.

on a separate note, i got myself a new watch.

i set my eyes on it 2 weeks ago, having procrastinated for the longest time to get a new one because the straps of my two favorite watches gave up on me.

pretty bummed considering both have lasted more than a couple of years, the latter setting me back at a bargain of only 10bucks and i’ve never changed its battery once in 2 years.

its still running and i don’t know what to do with it. i don’t really know where to go to change the strap and things like that. any advice?

anyway, about the new watch – it’s a casio. i was looking at another model but he (the watch uncle) sold it off 2 days earlier. boo. he was pretty shocked that i wanted it cause he said it was unpopular and aunty-ish. but i loved it and might still wanna see where i can get it though he made mention that there’s hardly anywhere that carries that old model anymore. i’ll tell you if i do get it though :)

and so he showed me the next on the list of unpopular models; albeit still baffled why i didn’t want something more well received. having a penchant for things uncommon…i didn’t want to scare him further by telling him that sometimes i choose things with imperfections….i chose this (my first pictures of it).

and so i went to work this morning, with a skip in my step, happy and content with my new accessory and lo and behold, my colleague (funny i never noticed) has EXACTLY the same watch as me.

we laughed as i shared with her this story because A. she knows my liking for one of a kind stuff and B. she loves the popular. we both concluded that since we chose the same watch, we must have great taste ;)

i still love my new watch.

whether you are common or one of a kind, i like you because you are mine.

i havent written here since like forever and i miss doing so very much.

took a trip to bangkok recently; my 5th time there but first time after 2 years.


LOVE bangkok for their food, shopping and mostly, culture.

i watched a man grill a fish that cost me about 4USD with his heart and soul.

meticulously, patiently, diligently – doing something he did all his life, with so much pride.

i left Bangkok inspired.

xoxo

Why go to church? October 22, 2009

a friend send me this @ work today and i pondered over its simple truth.

Why Go To Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday (or Saturday).

“I’ve
 gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something
 like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of
 them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by 
giving sermons at all.

“

This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column,much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: “I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 
32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu 
for a single one of those meals; but I do know this.. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals,
 I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”

When you are DOWN to nothing…. God is UP to something!

Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!
