Crafts department

Everytime i browse etsy store or handmade blogs, i feel like so semangat to sew or to craft something. It'll be fun to shop all these lovely stuff and that's why i love to go to flea market!

The beautiful fabrics {source}


The colorful buttons. {source}


And to own a room like this where all your materials are stack nicely around you.

As for the sewing crave i've borrowed a portable sewing machine from my sis. But when i looked at the machine it looks scary pulak (0_O). In fact the sewing machine is still in my car boot thehehe! *hint shara! biler nak tolong ajar basic? hiks"

So i guess for now i just stick to appreciate other people's handmade. Feels like i can do it but when i want to start doing it i have to deal with the technical, measurement lah, proper materials lah, and not too mention techniques. Aiyayaya i'm lousy! Hopefully one day i can make my own paper crafts, jahit my own tote bag, baju kurung or dress like ikin hehe. I envy you guyssss!!!

2nd day Raya at PD

On 2nd day raya, we went to beraya at Port Dickson (my sis's parents in law's house). Cheep's sisters and bro also went along so we konvoi in 2 cars. Reached PD just about lunch time, so sampai2 jer trus makan hehe. We had nasik, lauk ikan sweet and sour, rendang, sayur, and sambal prawn. Sedapnyeh! I miss the rugrats a lot but Adly was too busy playing his dslite most of the time. Ajak amik gambar pon susah.

Tapik nak tanya pasal game call of duty rajin jer dia gi tanya uncle cheepnyer. Siap ajak berentap lagik. Tuh pon muka dia tak nampak gak dalam gambar nie, dia tgh duduk kat couch tuh.

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

Salam nak bagi duit raya with all the kids.


Posing with the chicas before nak balik. Lepas pelok cium my sis kitowang made a move to Teluk Kemang sbb nak bawak Khairan (cheep's nephew) pegi main kat beach.

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

Sampai jer Teluk Kemang, we were like "hohoho we're so not gonna hit the beach". Punyer lah ramai orang and mostly aliens plak tuh. The beach pon nampak kotoq haiyoo. So we just waited kat blah gerai2 jer sambil makan jambu and amik gambar. Ada a few (definitely not local i can say) yang mmg main slumber curik snap gambar kitowang pakai camera phone. Stupid kan? We must've looked alien to them jugak kot.

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

Khairan lepas gian mandi laut. Mandi sowang2 pon jadik hehehe.

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

Sambil tunggu Khairan mandi laut tuh, tingin plak nak makan jagung bakar. But unfortunately sumer jagung tuh dah ada orang order :(

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

Amik gambar summore sambil tunggu Khairan tukar baju.

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

Cleanliness is our priority eh? Hehe musbi dah beyond control dah nie!

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

On our way back to SA. The hills nampak biru2...nice kan all the blue shades.

Blue shades of clouds

So there goes our 2 days of raya. By the 3rd day cam dah officially end. We didn't go anywhere except for kuar minom dekat2 je. Besnyer cuti camnie rasa relax jer. Tapik monday nanti kene masuk kejer dah :(

1st day beraya

Still citer 1st day raya. Malam tuh we went beraya to Cheep's aunts who live in the same area. The 1st house was aunty Teh and her house is very cosy.

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

And ada swimming pool summore. Banyak lagik lah gambar posing around the house especially Cheep with his poyo raya pose.

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

This is Nissa who's birthday is the next day so aunty Teh kuarkan a kek lapis for blowing candles purpose hehehe. Dia punyer lah suka...look at her beaming smile when everybody sang birthday song to her.

And another budak kecik, Mia pon nak jugak blow candle for the faux birthday cake. Adalah dalam 3 kali kitowang kene nyanyi birthday song hahahaha!

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

Then after makan2 simple, we went to aunty Aki's house. Makan kat umah aunty Aki nih the ultimate finale of the night. Put aside rendang and kuah kacang (ada tapik tak pandang sangat)....we had seafood instead. Soft shell crab, shrimp masak telur masin (the best!), pandan leave chicken, asam pedas, tomyam etc.

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

Haishoooo perot pon dah terkuar2! Unfortunately i wore kebaya sbb dah overload sangat time tuh. But i guess it's a good thing jugak or else i makan melampau2. And oh, check out the fresh flowers arrangement in front of us tuh sangat lah gorgeous!

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

My little rival, Mia hehehe. Last time it was Izzah anak Irma. Banyak tol peminat kecik si Cheep neh! But cute kan!

Raya 2009 @ Port Dickson

1st day Raya

We rushed to the mosque for solat raya but unfortunately we were few minutes late. I stayed behind near the mosque entrance because i don't think i can walk fast enough while Cheep marched ahead. If i continue walking, silap2 sampai jer dalam dah start khutbah hehe. Then balik umah and isik perot with the ketupats, rendang daging, rendang ayam, daging kicap, and so on. Fuhhh besnyer! Then all the family members gathered for sesi salam2. I'm quite nervous jugak because my family member sket jer, and for the past two years i only have to salam my sis and bro in law. This year kene salam 8 adults! It started with the parents of course. Aaaahh terubat jugak sket rindu nak salam tangan parents sendiri.

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

Then with the hubby kene lah mintak ampun and maap for all the wrongs i've did. Even though every night before tido mintak maap, but this is raya mode kenelah special sket :)

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

Then family photo for keepsake.

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

Our last minute raya theme, red. Dari itam ke pepel tetiba jadik red. Hahaha panjang citernya. But ok gak, we looked vibrant :P

Raya 2009 @ Shah Alam

Cheep's relatives started pouring in. Memang ramai and non stop sampai ke petang. Around 2pm we excused ourselves to visit the cemetary before hujan turun. When we reached there, the crowd dah tak banyak and penjual bunga pon dah nak start balik. We recited Yassin and doa smoga roh my parents dicucuri rahmat oleh Allah SWT. I missed them soo much and glad that Cheep was there by my side. I was so happy to see both of the pusara is well taken care of. Thanks to pacik Sabtu (my dad's friend who works at the cemetary) yang baik hati susunkan the new white pebbles.

Raya 2009

On our way back, hujan dah start turun. Phew! Sib baik dah settle kalo tak kene postpone plak. Gambar raya sambung next entry yuk!

Selamat Hari Raya 2009

Selamat Hari Raya

Would like to wish everyone Selamat Hari Raya! Mohon maap andaikata ada perbuatan yang tak kena di hati, tertweet kasar bahasa, terfacebook yang over di mata, harap2 maapkan lah ye kerana sesungguhnya kemaafan itu dendam yang terindah. For those yang balik kampung or travelling, please drive carefully. Lagik musim raya, lagik accident prone don't you think?

I'll be celebrating my first raya with Cheepster and his family this year. Domestic preparation as a wife? Huhu nothing much i can say. Kuih pon pow from my sis (tengkiuuu!) On 2nd day raya, we planned to beraya in PD because that's where my sis will be. My cuti will be until 25th which means a looooong holiday w00t! Hope you guys enjoy your holiday and jam free in KL/ Selangor for a few days.

And oh, i changed my header again hehe. The recent two headers and the picture above were from my outdoor wedding photos collection which we took early this year. Might as well use it right? Simpan lama2 lagik segan nak pakai ;)

Also would like to wish my cousin, Karen on her new bundle of joy. She recently gave birth to her second baby named Caden Chin. Hugs and kisses from piuyee :)

Buka puasa @ Seoul Garden (2nd round)

Yesterday was buka puasa with college friends. We tried to get a place at Chillis but since it's Friday evening, to arrive in One Utama before 6pm is kinda impossible. Sib baik we have a backup plan where Wawa has already booked 18 seats at Seoul Garden. At first during the discussion dalam gmail there were 3 of us opposed the idea to bebuka puasa at SG, including myself lah because i just went there last week! But at that time we're pretty sure most restaurants dah full house, so masuk jelah SG nak jumpa kengkawan punyer pasal. Time tuh Zet dah dapat seats at Italiannies but since ada yang dah duduk kat SG so maintain SG jugak lah.

We're the early birds in SG. No queues at all :)

Buka puasa @ Seoul Garden

Can choose what to eat peacefully and can amik gambar food summore.

Lepas makan, some of us went to the new wing concourse area to snap photos on OU's raya decor. A lil miscommunication time nie, because ada yang nak pegi ada yang tamo pegi so end up split into half and tak dapat lah nak salam sumer orang. Agak abrupt ending lah jugak. Photo below is my girlfriends since my first year in college back in 1998 until today 2009. Wow it's been 11 years!

Buka puasa @ Seoul Garden

Wawa and Din the couple yang always maintain relax and sempoi jer hehehe
