day233P365: the updates, challenges and the satisfaction

the updates:
finally I make the time to sit down and go through all of my photos that I have taken since day 216. I know this is not the idea of 365 (need to take photos daily and update them daily) but it works for me. Maybe when I’ve done this so many times, it might become a habit.
today is day 233 of the year 2010.
i keep all of the photos at flickr
the challenges:
I got the time to photographs my life, I just didn’t have the time to catalogue and blog about it on a daily basis.  
deciding things, people or event to photograph
choosing one photo of all the photos in my collection for that day

the satisfaction:
it really gives me such joy to capture my everyday routine.
it a proof that I exist and I matter
it’s a living document which can be enjoy by my kids in the future

i got a feeling that…

    --- digital scrapbooking, blog hopping, watching my favourite show, catch up on my reading, clean my house, taking an afternoon nap

way back when

After my evening workout I discover my daughter is flipping through some old scrapbook album I did in 2001. She kept complaining why is she not in any of the photos. I told her she wasn’t born yet. Somehow she still not satisfied with my answer. (heheheh)
It’s really is a long time ago , almost 10 years ago, since the last time I made any hybrid scrapbooking. Not many digital scrapbook site back then. The only site I remember was around is Scrapbook-bytes and the site still is around now. Check them out here.
Back then I did mostly hybrid scrapbooking. Most of the fonts and the elements I did using my computer (back then it was Adobe Photoshop 5), print them out and paste them in my scrapbook.
It was a lot of work and really time consuming. I used to love buying all kind of papers, scissors and pens. When the digital scrapbooking exploded these last few years, I haven’t done any hybrid related project. I only tried making cards once or twice a year just for those special person in my life.

It is really interesting to see how my style and  the industry have changed in just ten years! The amazing thing is my daughter can enjoy the scrapbook album I made of her and her brothers.

things i learn from America’s Next top model cycle 13

I know it was an old season of America’s Next Top Model. This is the first time I’ve watched this show from the beginning till the end. What caught my attention is this is the first short model (well to me 5’7” is not that short- quite high by Malaysian standard) competition in this series. What I love about this show that the tips I got when model in front of the camera. Most girls are just ordinary girl but when they are in front of the camera they transform and great hair and make up helps a lot too.
Here are the finalist
America's Next Top Model 
Laura ** the Runner up
America's Next Top Model
Nicole ** The winner of Cycle 13
credit: photos from the internet
I think Laura should win the title, but when I saw how Nicole transform from an ordinary girl to this sophisticated model it shows that she she works hard for what she wants, learn and grow a lot. Life should be like that. You really have to work hard to get what you want. Nothings comes easy in life.

me and my two boys

Oh boy! What a day! It has been a hectic day for me since yesterday. I don't why somehow a lot of projects need to be completed this month. I really need to rest now. So  l leave you with a little eyecandy I made using Estranged by Flergs. I really love this kit. I think this is my fourth time using this kit.

8th Ramadhan, random things and quick updates


* today is the 8th of Ramadhan in Islamic Calendar. We are still in the week of Rahmah.
* everywhere you can see Sales on most of everything except food. I think the price of food increase dramatically since the petrol price increased. I think it really ridiculous!
* so happy that I’ve manage to stick to my simple goals this week. Mostly I did Jari Love DVD and Jillian for my daily workout. I’ve manage to read a few pages in “the girl with the dragon tattoo”.
* I took photos daily but still haven’t got the time to label and document them in my 365 project. I plan to do them this weekend.

what do you want from me…

I can’t get that song out of my head..”what do you want from me” is currently spinning on my mp3 player while I’m working with these two layouts. The song grows on me. The first time I heard the song I didn’t like it but now I kept hearing the song.
Anyway these are the results.

It’s amazingly beautiful to see…..

Both of my kids love art (hazirah and hazim). They love to color and the love to draw. They have such and amazing passion when they started to draw.



My Little girl drew this. I was totally surprised to discover that she can draw something cute. IMG_8884a

this belong to my eldest son, Hazim. He is very passionate and resourceful when it comes to doing what he likes. If only he has the same passion for his other school syllabus.

My Sunday, Ramadhan and GI Joe

I just realize that I had this clock in the store room. I bought it at Ikea about a month ago. Finally it goes on my wall.
We went to Bazar Ramadhan around 4:00pm. It was raining lightly and people already going to the bazar as well. I am so glad that I already know what to buy. So the trip was fast and quick. IMG_8862a
Putu piring- one of my favorite must have during ‘buka puasa’.IMG_8872a * i spend most of the day cleaning my house
* watching GI Joe on DVD.
* relaxing, facebooking and blogging
