A Smiling Watch !

My-Oh-My! Look at the time!
 A really great friend of mine drew this for me saying that it's time to smile! And guess what? It did make me smile!

"What time is it?" "It's time to SMILE!"
Anyways, I don't really have much to post about. I have been really busy (extremely busy) and haven't had time to craft just yet. Oh well, let me show you a little something I got.
 I bought these two things at "Arts For Grabs" which I talked about at my previous post. The first picture is a masquerade mask charm (I just HAD to get it!), the second picture shows a couple of hand drawn stickers! I intend to use them for scrapbooking in the future. They're just too adorable to be ignored and left at the stall. Oh! And it's only RM1 each! (except the bigger owl piece)
 Something I did in business class. Doodling on the sticky notes!

Early this year, I bought a total of RM280 voucher from a senior in college. I didn't manage to use all the voucher till now. I used the RM80 voucher to buy 2 books that cost RM60 in total, and fill the rest with snacks. RM20 can actually buy quite a number of snacks!
 3 packets of Tim Tam, 2 Kinder Bueno, 1 packet of Famous Amos, and 2 sticks of sugus! All these are still alive right now. They haven't had the trip to the stomach just yet. Perhaps some of them should travel there now. *evil grins* Well, alright! That's all for today's post! Happy smiling! Goodbye!

I See Gentlemen

I have been crafting quite a bit the past week as it was my holiday. I wasn't suppose to be crafting though, I actually had mountains of homework but I couldn't resist crafting instead. 
 I made some more button earrings! Yipee! Aren't they adorable? I wish I had more pinkish colours though. They're available at BoxOfHobbies. Some of the colours are sold out though.
I also made a couple of rose rings! Check it out!
The first one is actually mixed with a bit of gold. Sadly, it doesn't show much in the end.

I made a pair of rose earrings too. I only made one because it's pretty big.
  These 2 colours (purple & dark purple) are actually very nice. I love its picture in flash. I didn't upload the picture in BoxOfHobbies though, as it really is much darker in real life.
 Glitter Blue Rose Rings! These are pretty nice, maybe cause my favourite colour is blue. hee! I might keep one of them for myself. Hmmm.. should I? I seldom wear accessories though. Oh well. Other than the roses, I tried something new today! Scroll down!
 Isn't it pretty? Some roses and a hint of vintage look. Lovely! I almost decided to keep it for myself. It's sold now though. It'll be meeting it's new owner this Thursday!
 Blue vintage pendant & Red vintage pendant. The blue one is still available at BoxOfHobbies.
A very tiny sword that I made. Compare it with the size of my fingers! hee! I'm planning to add something else on. Stay tuned to find out! I might make some into keychains or so as well. We'll see. It may be too tiny to be a nice keychain on its own. Well, that's all for the crafty stuff!

There's another thing I want to post about, and I shall call it "ThankYouForYou". It's about appreciating others, encouraging others and telling them what you admire about them or so. Even people that you're not very close with. I like these kinda thing. It's really fun! And it lets people know someone actually appreciates them for what they do! I actually posted something like that here before. Except, I never wrote the names then. I thought it'd be good to have their names this time. Then everyone can see how amazing they are! So, let's start! This time, we'll talk about gentlemen.

 Andrew Lau
This guy here is my very first cell leader! (: I call him 'Big Boss'! He's super caring, super understanding and super GENTLEMAN! Mm.. this post is suppose to be me telling the person why I appreciate or admire them, but I think I've told Andrew the same thing tons of times already and now I don't know what else to write. Guess I'll just be telling you guys how awesome he is instead of telling him. haha! I think I wrote about the same thing for both his birthday last year and this year. I could still remember how he actually waited with my sister and I at City Harvest (old building) 's cafe. My mum got on the wrong road (highway) and took 2 hours before reaching church to fetch us. Andrew actually waited with us the entire 2 hours! Even when we say it's alright and that he should go back first, he replied :"No, I have to make sure my members return home safely before I go back!" That really touched our hearts and is truly a CHCKL experience! I really thank God for placing him in my life. A leader I'd always look up to! (:
 Wilson Thong
 Hey Wilson! (: I just wanna announce to the world as well, that you're super GENTLEMAN! :D haha! I don't know you very well or so, but yeah. I've always heard about you fetching your members all here and there, and then saw you helping people carry their bags and all. That's really nice of you. (: I remember on the last day of IO Camp 2011, I was carrying my luggage to the car. It was a little heavy but manageable. While carrying, someone asked "Need help?" and I replied "Nope. Thank you". Right then, you came over and carried my luggage to the car saying "Aiyah! Don't have to ask one lah! Carry only!" (Something like that) :P haha! I didn't even had time to say it's alright or so and my luggage is missing from my hands! It was really nice of you. And that time, I really really really don't know you well. haha! It was a wonderful CHCKL experience! Well, that's about it I guess. I really appreciate what you've done and how you are. Continue being an awesome gentleman! :D

 Richard Liew
Hey Panda slash Mojojojo! (: I just wanna say thanks for being a great friend! I like how you always play along when I randomly say something or act something out. haha! It's fun! Random yet fun. Mm.. I find you very sacrificial. Especially transport wise. I'm always hearing about you fetching people all around! And at times, if I'm not wrong, you even come out just because someone needs to get somewhere. Like that time I asked you how come you're at church and you said Elaine needed transport, so you just followed her. What a gentleman! :P I was like 'Woahhh..' Pretty surprised. (: But it's a good thing! And the other time where Aaron's transport left and he didn't know how to get back. Instead of going for supper which you wanted, you fetched him all the way back to KK and went home without supper. Awesome! Well, keep up the awesomeness, Panda! :D

Dic Vinn
My dear brother Dic Vinn! Ever so healthy and smiley! hahah!! You're an awesome brother and friend! Super gentleman as well but sometimes quite blur la ;) hahah!!! I still remember the time where I posted on Facebook asking for transport to school. I expected someone from school to replied, but instead, you replied asking me the details (time,etc). Then, you added that you could fetch me if you can get the car tomorrow. You said that you could use another way to work and it'll be on the way to fetch me! I was so touched. (: It was very very nice of you to do so. Really. Thank you so much for being such an amazing friend and brother! :D A true gentleman!

Kevin Rimas Lee
My super amazing, super awesome, loving and caring lion brother! Kevin Rimas Lee!! Rawr! (: Also known as a lion with a huge gentleman heart! Thank you so so so so so very much for always being there for me. You're the one who helped me when I had so many questions in my mind about God and the Bible and everything. You taught me how to pray and always encouraged me. I still remember the time where you made me webcam with you and pray out loud every 2 days. I was quite afraid of praying in public and you did that to help me with it. I'm so thankful that God placed you in my life. Really. Though you're in Philippines now, you're still helping me so much! Especially with my evil IB homework! (: I really really do appreciate it! Thanks for always supporting me (& BoxOfHobbies) and believing in me. haha! You're the best! :D

Brandon Chin
Mister Brandon Chin! Another gentleman I've came to know! I find that you're very sacrificial. You're always offering to fetch people around, even if it may not be on the way. And you're always willing to do so much more. Always. (: I've noticed as well that you ALWAYS open the car door for girls. Usually, a guy would just open the door for another when he's actually passing by their door, then go to the driver's seat. They don't purposely walk to the other side, open the door for a girl, close the door for them, and then walk back to the driver's side of the car. I remember you did that though, on the day where we dropped by JLGuitarCollection at Business Centre. I was quite surprised cause it's actually my first time seeing a guy do this. I've had guys who opened car doors for me before, but not purposely walking over to do it. Thank you! (: Other than that, there was once, sitting on the driver's seat, you even put your hand over to the back and tried opening the door from the inside of the car for me. Also, thanks for fetching me from home to college when I needed transport then. :D Really really appreciate it a lot!

That is all for today peeps! I had a really great time doing this post and I hope you enjoyed reading it! Keep smiling, laughing and having a blast! Bye!

The Wedding Project !

Hey people! Here's 2 random picture of me in my adorable penguin jacket driving to college!
 Don't you find my jacket adorable? Anyways, I've got a pretty exciting post today! (It's interesting to me, I hope it is to you too!). In the previous month, I've received a customized order to make a wedding gift! It's a bigger project than my usual tiny crafts and I was really excited to start working on it! I started off with drawing how I think it should look like, then went off shopping for the materials needed and re-drawing it. (materials bought looks slightly different. The glass)
 A bunch of beige clay is conditioned for making the couple. I started off making the girl. Girl's are always easier to make. The guy's hair is something I had to keep fixing. It'd look very funny at times.
 The progress. I added beads to the back of her dress as it is so in her facebook picture.
A brownish black shade for her hair.
 Time to make the guy! Loving how it looks so far!
 Managed to fix both their hair.
 Rose for the bride, and specs for the groom.
 The end result of the bride and groom. A coat of varnish is added for the shiny look. Love it!
This is the end result of the whole project. I've got to make the roses one by one, stick a few together and then stick all of them forming a rim around the glass. It turned out pretty lovely.
 The top of the glass. The wedding couple met at CHC, and so, my customer decided she wants to have the word "CHC" in the wedding gift.
 I got to find a nice packaging for this. Since the gift was pretty big and extremely fragile, it's kind of hard to find a nice suitable sized box for it. Many were either too big or too small. In the end, I got the bag above. Works like a charm with a good base and help. I cut out 2 piece of polystyrene board though. One for the base and the other cut out with an empty circle in the middle so that the gift could fit.The gift is delivered on Sunday. I was even excited to deliver the gift!

You have come to the end of my post! Hope you enjoyed it! Well, see you guys soon again! Tata for now!

The Journey Of A Zookeeper!

 Yesterday, I cleaned this dude's poop. Yeap! The dude in the picture above! It's an Indian Bison. Well, a couple of friends and I, decided to volunteer in Zoo Negara to get some community hours. We need 10hours to pass our college course (Sunway College, CIMP). So, our job as volunteers are to feed the animals and clean up after them.
We were placed into groups o 5/6 and given a volunteer sticker each. It reads "Zoo Negara Volunteer". Mine sadly, split into two right before we start work. I was transferring it from my right arm to my left (or the other way around).
Check out the family of Otters. Aren't they adorable? They all rushed over together when they heard the office's (just beside) door close. I guess they were hoping for fish to snack on.
 We went to different parts of the zoo and were split once again into smaller groups of 3. Xiang Ting, Shau Jin and Ling Wai were in one group, and Jen Sion, Jason and I in the other. My group was pretty fun, we got up close with the animals and sometimes we even get to pet them! The person in charge of us was Encik Wan, he's a pretty nice guy. We found him where the deers are, and helped to pick up branches on the ground. The ground was filled with little round chocolates. Yeap. Their poop! They'd be really convincing if they were placed in a translucent bag on a table somewhere. Really. The surface was SMOOTH. Anyways, we fed the goats next and actually got to see the head of the goats watching out for all of them and making them line up before charging for the food! Ain't that cool? We continued on feeding the deers, wallaby, kancil, bats (they were super cool! They were still awake and climbing about upside down when we're in the area. I got to see them wrap themselves in their wings), Capybara (biggest rodent), and the Indian Bison (the one in the first picture). 

The Indian Bison's habitat was the most disgusting one of all. We could smell the stench even from far. We stepped in with our boots and a rake. The place was covered in old grass, poop and yellowish liquid (which probably was excreted from the Bison). Our job was to use the rake to pile up all the left over grass from the night before. We got to be careful not to drag their humongous poop along. The poop would be collected separately into a bin as the zoo wants it for fertilizer. After that is done, we got to carry in stacks of new grass (it's pretty heavy) and spread it out on the ground. Interesting eh? Want to have a try at being a zookeeper in the future?

 I got the experience of feeding the bears (basically just throwing these bunch of food into their cages.) too! Jason and I got the honor of pouring off the soup they call "Bear Sup" into the drain. The zookeeper only wants the meat, carrots and potatoes boiled in the soup. These were only given to the first two cages though. The rest only got the food in the wheelbarrow. Their diet consist of a mix of Bananas, Papayas, Long Beans, Cabbage, Bread, and Bread with Raisins.One particular bear loved the bread with raisins a lot and the zookeeper kept most for that specific bear.
 We weren't suppose to take pictures while working, thus the lack of pictures in this post. At the very last breath of my phone (well, not really. I had 4%), I got this picture above. It's where all the bears are kept.
 Well, that is all for our journey as a ZOOKEEPER! I wouldn't say I'd like to work at the zoo or whatsoever, but it was a pretty great experience. At least now I would get to tell my kids : "You know, last time mama work in the zoo before!" (kind of) hee! Alright! Hope you enjoyed this post! Tata!
