oh, katie alice

2nd Jul 2015

Been pining over Katie Alice’s products lately. Last week, I just purchased 2 sets of Katie Alice Candy Flower Porcelain Handled Tea Spoon and already I can’t wait to use them. Another Katie Alice item that I really, really, REALLY need (yes, NEED over WANT) is the Katie Alice Flower Shabby Chic Pink Spot Polka Dot Cutlery Set.

Katie-Alice-Cottage-Flower-16-Piece-Spot-Boxed-Cutlery-Set~96S879FRSP

It’s currently unavailable anywhere – eBay, Amazon, Katie Alice website, fishpond etc! And it’s so frustrating when you wanted something so bad (lol) and they’re not within your reach. *sigh*

I really hope Katie Alice reads this and will consider sending one to me. Ha ha

life is going to be awesome

A few weeks ago, the World received devastating news of an earthquake at Mount Kinabalu that killed 13 climbers & mountain guides. It happened in Ranau, Sabah. A day later, my bff and I was driving towards Ranau for a birthday setup job that I have accepted just a week before. Was I nervous? Did I worry for our safety? Of course, I did. The tremors were still quite strong (still is to date) when we were there, in fact, we felt tremors during our stay at Pine Resort, Kundasang. But as the bible says,

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:34)

The birthday setup was a success!

Photos were however in a sad state. Because of the earthquake and being worried so much, my DSLR CAMERA was the one important thing that I forgotten to pack along for the trip. *sigh* Had to use my icky camera phone. Haha. (I have since got a new iPhone for myself – which captures better photo quality in the event that I forgotten to take my DSLR camera along in the future. lol)

I must say, setting up for birthdays is a new venture that I’m beginning to grow fond of. In fact, I’m already spending more than I should have on cake stands and items for a table deco. Probably get some A1 Restaurant Furniture too if I see fit. Ha ha

In the meantime, I will continue working on my freelance graphic design job while waiting for calls/emails for party setup. Probably start brushing on my makeup skill and doing part time for weekend job. Oh yes, that’s what I’d probably do this year! *Ü*

Unfortunately, these babies are SUPER expensive (after converting them to MYR) and to date, I only have the 2 tier Grassland Roads Just Dessert Cupcake Stand (the one in pink & green color).

Will be purchasing the rest when I’ve saved enough. Perfect for family heirloom. lol

bloom where you are planted

For the past 3 days, we have been visiting my aunt Mina at her home. The old lady who has been living at the ground floor of her home had passed away 3 days ago. She was an aunt of aunt Mina’s husband. A widow who do not have a child of her own.

I remember the night when my mom and I stood next to her coffin, my mom whispered to me, “kesian juga orang yang tiada anak, kan?” (It’s just sad to see people whom are childless”. I agree with her. The old lady got married twice, and both marriage did not gave her any child.

What if the same thing happened to me? What if I was destined to be alone and not having anyone to grow old with, or worse, not having any children to take care of? Will I manage to be as strong as the old lady?

But the Lord has answered those questions for me even before I asked:

“For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope. When you call me, when you go to pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find me with you, says the Lord.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14)

On another note, today’s post title has a lot to do with the flowers my mom and I planted around the new house – well, now that we’ve been living here the past 6 months, it’s not so new anymore. *teehee* We have yellow flowers, pink, reds, white… oh, we also have pineapples, veggies, fruits etc! It’s such a pleasant view to look at from my office window with all the colorful flowers. I could just sit on the chair and do nothing on the computer but stare at them. I just wish that we have a bench or a gazebo outside at the garden so I can just sit outside with my laptop and work. Speaking of laptop, mine had unfortunately died on me. It probably needs some professional help to revive it back to life – or it probably need some TLC from Laptop Battery Express Asus Batteries.

That is something that I need to add into my ‘To-Do-List’. Oh, and a bench (or a gazebo too).

But as always, I am thankful with what I currently have. Anything more than that will be a generous blessings from the Lord above..

Sunday Morning

15th Mar 2015

Hello, again! I’m so glad to be back here after a long break. In my last post, I mentioned about moving into a new home. 3 months into the new home, we have planted veggies at the backyard, replaced the wild grasses with those that doesn’t need mowing. Even flowers have begin to bloom!

“By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established;
by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.” (Proverbs 24:3-4)

One of the best thing about living on a landed house is that the postman get to deliver parcels right at your door step (or the entrance gate) I was really pleased to find my parcels from USA delivered to my home last week, and I did not have to travel all the way to the post office to queue up and pick my parcels from the counter. That’s what ‘online shopping’ really means! *Ü*

Now I must stop typing and get back to my chores. Just did some house cleaning on the basement. I must now proceed at the first floor, but not until I’ve had my breakfast. Have you had yours? It’s a beautiful Sunday indeed. Go out, take your loved ones for a good lunch and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
