Cindy, the violin player (ha!)

25th Jun 2013

So I finally got my violin back! Thanks to my brother who carried it with him all the way from KL, into the plane, out of the plane and to my apartment. So, yay! I can finally practice and enhance my violin playing again. Currently trying to perfect my “Silent Night” so I can perform in front of my gawking family come Christmas. *hee*

Speaking of violin, Bunny actually broke the E-string when I asked him to help me fine tune the strings. Humm.. it’s probably due to the fact that the string’s old. It’s still the same string since I got the violin like… er.. many years ago? (can’t remember exactly WHEN). And according to Bunny, old string breaks easily. I don’t know if he’s saying that to save his skin (lol), but oh well.. at least now my violin got a set of brand new strings. All 4 strings!

And oh, if you’re around KK area and plays violin too (and is on a tight budget, like me).. you can get good quality violin strings from my friend’s store. (OK, he’s actually Bunny’s friend. But any friends of Bunny’s also my friend lah.. he he) His store is called VMIS Music Store. They have a Facebook Page too! So if you’re looking for musical accessories or instruments, you can get them from VMIS Music Store. Just tell them that Cindy (Jaya punya fiancee) sent you there. Guarantee can get good price. (I think lah. Ha ha)

By the way, this is the violin string that I’m currently using. Will be changing to D’Addario string when I’ve mastered my “Silent Night”! Ha ha ha

Sayuri’s World

7th Jun 2013

I first read about Sayuri (an artist who has relocated from Japan to Australia to Romania and now Portland, Oregon) about a few months ago. Ever since, I have been a fan of her marvelous works.

Her 2009 art installation named Urban Aquarium could easily be my favorite and you can see why:

Most of the medium used for Sayuri’s artworks are made of threads and fibers, and possibly some ceramic tubes as well – I can’t tell. But one thing for sure is that once you’ve seen her work, you won’t be able to stop marveling at those beauties!

Shed Inspiration | Such A Sweet Dream

17th May 2013

You might not know this but, I usually keep ‘rubbish’ a lot. Like gift wrappers of gifts I received (can’t blame me, they’re mostly cute!), small empty boxes, packing peanuts, paper bags, item tags etc. They might sound small but if you collect them for years, they’ll make a huge pile! So.. someday when I have my own big space, like maybe a backyard.. I’m gonna get me some shed. :p

And of course I do love cute sheds. Preferably white and large but not too big in size – just nice to store my ‘rubbish’ and mini collections of books.

OK, maybe something bigger. Enough to store my future bicycle as well! He he

shed3

or possibly a shed that looks like a cute barn. Yeah…

shed4

And oohhhh look at THAT barn above! Definitely something I must have in the future! Can you imagine me, having a cuppa tea next to my barn with my friends?? Growing old, gossiping and such.. all that while sitting beside A BARN! ha ha ha

Seriously, I want a barn right now. I want those from Sheds For Less Direct! :D

Teach me how to crochet!

14th Mar 2013

If there’s one thing I need to learn right now, it’ll be crocheting. I can’t crochet to save my life, let alone know the tools of crocheting.

hot-water-bottle

How adorable is this??? I want one!! And the fact that I sleep with a hot water bottle almost every night gives me the motivation to make one for myself.. so I could sleep in style. Ha!

If you want to make one (or rather, make one for me), go to Yvestown and tell me the good news. *hee*

New fonts on the block

20th Feb 2013

My name is Cindy and I’m a fontaholic. Therefore I bought another set of fonts.

amour

Got the WHOLE set of AMOUR – because I couldn’t decide which one I like the most! ^_^

That said, I am gonna eat grasses for the whole month till someone donates in my Vacation Fund. Mmm..
