Couldn't snap the first 100 inchies I made for customer A. Below are the 50 inchies I made for customer B who wanted them all in pink shade. One concentrated color is always difficult to make. I can still vividly remember how I struggled to complete my order for 100 inchies in black and white.

Do you marry someone because you think:
A. He is a good man/woman. A total husband/wife material
B. It's about time to settle down. You had enough of fun already
C. Both A and B. Everybody has to end up in marriage whatsoever. It's just the right thing to do at the right time(refer to answer B) and you're with the right man/woman (refer to answer A).
I hope at this point, someone will be looking for another option D. You are truly, madly, crazily in love with this man/woman. Someone might disagree, saying love can't buy you a loaf of bread. But love can sail your boat a long longgggg way, through calm or turbulent sea. Bread? We can just finish it in a second and hungry for more.
While having dinner with my girlfriends, a saying/quote was brought up. One of my gf said, 'It is better to marry a guy who loves you more than you love him'. All my other gfs agreed. But I beg to differ. I said, 'Have to same same love la...' and she shaped her fingers into a 'L' shape....indicating I'm lame. -_- Even I'm a girl, I find it a bit selfish to think this way. Yes, I agree, everyone wants to play safe, but is finding someone that loves you more than you love him is the safest way, or the wisest way to a happy marriage?
I, too, saw the ugly side of marriage from my colleagues and friends. Somehow, somewhere, along the road, they met with someone better. Why so? Because the husband/wife is just good...but eventually not good enough. So there can always be someone better. Always, for sure. My theory is, marry someone you think is your better half. Someone you think is the best, at least in your own eyes, someone you adore, you worship, you crazily in love with. This apply to guys too. Don't you go marry someone just because you think she's a good cook, raise you good kids and could make your family photo looks cosy and warm. It will be the same like hiring someone to do or help you do those chores, right. You also have to adore, worship and crazily in love with this person.
If we think 'It is better to marry a guy who loves you more than you love him', it's like, fuh...good, we don't have to labour so much love. The lesser love I contribute, the safer and happier I am? Don't tell me, everyone is agreeing and applying this theory?? Ok, maybe you were badly hurt in a relationship before, so you wanted to play safe and granted this thought?? Please don't. Please continue to believe true love still exist.
My rule of thumb is simple, love like how you want to be loved in return. Yes, I will.......when I found my better half.
I hope I'm not living in fantasy realm and what I'm believing is not myth.
Here's a song that's so right for the mood while pondering bout this....
This is the second time we all sisters attend a best friend wedding together. I wonder who's turn is next? Anybody want make a guess? Ok, don't guess me just because this is my blog, ok. -_-

Bought some beautiful Japanese ZAKKA fabric from Mwendas. Couldn't find it anywhere in KL so I have to get them online. Expensive nehhhhh. But they are simply beautiful.
And together in the mail was a package from Christinas. A package fully stuffed with beautiful fabric scraps. And just last night, I un-tie the bundle and look at the scraps one by one. The scraps are not small pieces, some are slightly larger than a fat quarter. Aaaa....love them so much, especially the small kimono girls red fabric.
There are 30 beautiful fabric scraps!!
I spent some time last night arranging my felt squares in color order. Fun! Remember when we're kids and sometimes like to arrange our color pencils nicely?
I went to SS2 last night to get more clothes. I wonder what's the local price? I couldn't find any Japanese zakka fabric with cute prints but look at what I found (and bought?)
Nice? They sure do.^_^

I made a teru teru bozu today. It's so easy to make and cute. I want to make more. Maybe add some laces and other colours.
...and I dragged along Deb and Mary. ^^
And after that we went to the Book Fest Exhibition at KLCC. It was sooooooo crowded.
Ok, here's what I got back from the little art & literature trip. ^^
