oh those magnets

Last week was Hary Raya holiday. I was suppose to go for a personal retreat in Johor, but due to certain unforeseen reason I was not able to go. It was a good holiday at home, albeit having a lot on my mind and also having to do some office work during the holidays.

This project is has been long pending. I have always wanted to put up a magnetic board with the world map to display my magnet collection. Dad mounted this heavy thing on the wall for me.

The process? …. Many months ago (I cannot even remember how long ago it was), I bought 3 magnetic board from Ikea. Dad brought them to the welder and got them to weld the boards together.

I bought the World Map stickers from IPC way back in 2012 December (yeap, the receipt was still in the box). The stickers were meant for walls, but hey it works fine on my magnet board too.

However, then that beats the point of having my collection displayed, and besides I am not that “hardworking” to manage that. Hence, I tried my best to pin all my magnets up on the board, as close to the map as possible.

Magnets from Bali

My Parents went to Bali for the weekend to attend my Uncle’s wedding. As always, I will request for fridge magnets as souvenirs. If nothing else, just bring me magnets! I collect them. Like crazy!!! Here’s what they bought me. I was expecting just 1 or 2, but 16 !!!!

New found love

Last month, sitting in my cosy little hotel room in The Haag, I suddenly decided to love decoupage. So, through ebay, I bought my first bottle of Mod Podge Outdoor. The idea was that a week or so later, when I’m home, the bottle of mod podge would have reached

wood and paint

This is what I’ve been up to lately. Making blocks and blocks of images of Our Lady, Star of the Sea, meant as gifts to my friends. But until I master the skill of wood work and painting to get the perfect image on a perfect block, these remains in my
