October Favorites



  • I am still so obsess with Project Life App. I am making most of my scrapbook pages using this app
  • I found a new TV Series which I like - "How to Get Away with Murder" by Shonda Rhimes. It's such an interesting story.
  • October is definitely not a good reading month for me. I only got to finished reading only two books - Mr Mercedes by Stephen King and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Both books were so twisted and keeps me on edge the whole time. Love love them.
  • If you have not seen November Man movie, you need to watch it. It's the kind of movie that I enjoyed watching this month.
  • Making the time to take my photos out of my cellphone is also on my favorite weekly project that I have been loving this mont
  • I also celebrate my son's fifteen birthday this month. I just can't believe that this boy is fifteen this month.
  • Even though I have a lot of books to read, that doesn't stop me from buying more books in October. 
  • Font that I am loving is BeckyScript font from DigitalProjectLife store

I hope you had an amazing October. No matter how hard life gets, try to stay positive and look for things to be grateful for.

#thursday3 [30.10.2014]

What a year?!! I never would have thought that 2014 is going to be one long year. So many things happened and so many things need to be deal with. I just hope I can survive the next two months of 2014 



#1. Mostly this week I was working out of the office. Love the change of scenery.

#2. I just finished reading Gone Girl book by Gillian Flynn.  Wow! What a book?!! It was so twisted and brilliant and felt familiar at the same time.

#3. Looking forward to drool over iPhone 6 this weekend. Hopefully things will go smoothly as plan

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done."


Follow along each week using the hashtag #thursday3 dan tagged me @hanizeyecandy. I want to see your selfie and read about you

Collecting Moments: October and Friends with Monster

I was having so much fun playing with these two new kits from Pixelily Designs this month. Love the fall and spooky feeling of these kits. It reminds of a lot of rainy day and monsoon season.

5 things to do with cellphone photos

I went to "Malam Yayasan Anak-anak Yatim Sultanah Haminah" (YAYSH) Dinner at Shangri-la Hotel, Kuala Lumpur last Sunday. It was a charity dinner to raise money to support this foundation. There were a lot of important people and some politicians were there to support this foundation. 

One thing I noticed was almost all of the attendee took photos using their smart phones. It got me thinking and wondering what did they do with all the photos taken and exchange through Whatsapp? I bet that one month from now or one year from now these beautiful photos and memories taken during this important and meaningful event get lost through time and be over taken by other memories and events.

When I asked some people or some of my friends what did they do with all the photos, they said shared them using WhatsApp and that is all they did to the photos. Or some that is adventurous enough they share them on Facebook or Instagram.

I really believe that it is about time that we do something with all the photos taken with our smart phones. Other than sitting quietly somewhere in the jungle of digital fortress, we need to get them out, showcase them and give them proper home where we can enjoy them any time we want.

I have been a memory keeper for as long as I can remember and that is a long time. I learned a lot over the years. Here I would love to share with you some of the things that I learn to preserve those memories. Forget about scrapbooking in traditional sense, think more about memory keeping instead.


    5 things that you can do with your cellphone photos   

#1. Get them out of your phone - a.k.a have a backup copy of the photos somewhere else
The first rule of have digital photos is to backup them. Technology fails and so does your phone. It is very very very important to back up them regularly.
I usually backup my cellphone photos once every two weeks and upload them to flickr every month for backup purposes.

#2. Invest in a good photo printer - It might be a little bit expensive compare to printing them professionally at the store but it convenient to print at the comfort of your own home. Select a few beautiful photos from your collection, print them out and put them in a frame. I highly recommend Canon Selphy CP910 and Instax Share Printer.

#3. Make a photo book - Right now is so much easier to send your photos for printing on a photo book. I have been using the service from Photo book Malaysia and I am totally happy with the results. 

#4. Give scrapbooking a chance - Yes definitely! If you want to got a head and give scrapbooking a chance. I am 100% agree with Elise on this one. There are so many ways to scrapbook, Project Life system is one of the easiest way to scrapbook.

#5. Don't be afraid to journal - One thing that is lacking in cellphone photos is the story behind the photos. It's about time we make the time to journal. Now more than ever the tools to help us journal is available in our hand. Yes, our cellphone can be use to journal also. Invest in a journal app to help you organise your thoughts and document your photos. I used Day One app because of the simplicity and the ability to print my journal into pdf format.

If you feel more adventurous , invest in these apps to make memory keeping more fun.

Now you have a basic idea what to do with your cellphone photos, why not start now. Get those photos out of your phone and play with them a little bit.
