Atardecer Shawl

This is the shawl I made from the Spotlight yarns I bought. Completed in the same weekend I bought the yarn (it was a long weekend, we had Malaysia day on 16 September Tuesday, and I took the Monday off).

It only took less than 1 skein, so I have 4 skeins left. I guess I overestimated and besides I didn’t have a pattern in mind when I bought the yarns.


The good news is that I have lots of pretty purple yarns to make something else 😉

I’m loving this shawl, and the color’s really pretty.


Here’s the link to the pattern.

This is my horse. 
Handsome, arragont little fella!

He is hungry. “Where are my carrots?”

He sleeps after food.

My cows are lining up to be milked.

I’m a hayday addict!

Card games

Good bye Tom

Today, Tom’s contract ended. He offered me a discount, only 50 diamonds for another 5 days of service but I could not afford him. I miss him dearly. It’s not the same without him. Things move slowly and I have to work harder. I am addicted to Hay Day. Albeit

Scout’s paw 🙂 Last weekend, I went to this cafe called Bear Paw Cafe. It’s one of those Taiwanese inspired kinda cafes (except this one don’t serve pork, because in my experience Taiwanese restaurants always specialised in pork dishes). What I liked most is their bread. It’s soft because it

It’s been so long since I posted about crafts. It’s not that I have not been making things but just not as frequent as before.

Lately I made charms… Car Charms… made especially to hang in the car where the rear view mirror is at.

This was inspired by my fellow church member who was looking for a nice Crucifix for ger car. I had this nice bronze Crucifix which she loved but didn’t just want to hang in with a string. So, after some thoughts, I made these.


This is just one variation where I made them with polymer clay beads and crystal beads. Others I use connectors or just plain crystals.

The Crucifixs was purchase on ebay. They are really beautiful.


Spell DESSERTS the other way around… it spells STRESSED.
Yes, lately I am feeling very very stressed with my day job. So much to do, new assignment, new colleugue to work with. I’m getting old, my learning curve is not as steep as previously, I’m a bit slow lately :P. Oh well!

These helped a lot! Thank God business trips comes with great buffet choices!

My recent business trip had me staying in Renaissance hotel. I love these 5 stars hotel. Their sheets are superb, and they provide good quality toilettries.
What caught my attention was the packaging of their soap bars. These are milk bars by Margot Elena.
