#2) evolving with the new technology in the market
#3) i have my own room to do my job
#4) see how the organization grow with ICT is very satisfying
#5) unlimited internet access 24/7

Wimpychomper has a new kit out called Baseball Fever and   My Kind of Diamond. It's a Baseball kit for boys and girls. So many cute elements realted to baseball and bright color papers.

I wish real life could be like Photoshop!

I’ve been an Adobe Photoshop user since version 5. It was a long time ago before they introduce Creative Suite. So many have changed and I’m still in love with it. I use this software almost daily. Sometimes I just wish life could be more like in Photoshop. Here are a few reasons why…..

#1) Duplicate layer
   - If I have to make the same thing more than once, than I just have to duplicate it. No more making the same thing twice
#2) Record action
  - Being able to recod an action once and have the ability to run them anytime I need the same job done would be a blast. example : laundry, cooking and driving..
#3)  Healing Bursh
- how I wish I could just erase all my wrinkles away with this magic brush. hehehe
IMG_8944 copya
#4) Hue/Saturation
-- changing color easily would be handy when it comes to my outfit. Can easily change color to fit my mood
#5) Selection tools
-- easily remove things I don’t need from my view

when the devil wears PRADA

In New York, the simple and naive just-graduated in journalism Andrea Sachs is hired to work as the second assistant of the powerful and sophisticated Miranda Priestly, the ruthless and merciless executive of the Runway fashion magazine. Andrea dreams to become a journalist and faces the opportunity as a temporary professional challenge. The first assistant Emily advises Andrea about the behavior and preferences of their cruel boss, and the stylist Nigel helps Andrea to dress more adequately for the environment. Andrea changes her attitude and behavior, affecting her private life and the relationship with her boyfriend Nate, her family and friends. In the end, Andrea learns that life is made of choices”. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  taken from Internet Movie database website

Actually my intention wasn’t to write a review of this 2006 movie. I stumble upon this image while ‘bing’ Anne Hathaway. Somehow this photo reminded me the trouble and the sacrifice you have to make while working with a boss like Miranda Priestly. Asking for the impossible like the Harry Potter manuscript when the book is not published yet! It makes me feel lucky that I don’t have to face that kind of situation daily. This makes you look at things differently. So every time I feel like I had it tough I just thought of Miranda Priestly and I feel so much better! hehehe….

independence day assembly and monday

It’s so hard for me to wake up this morning. I’m still hoping and wishing it’s still Sunday! Monday is always the hardest day of the week.
* morning assembly this morning with our top management
* everybody got one national flag
* very simple and sweet—finished around 9:15
* it’s very hard to feel patriotic when all you can think about is Ramadhan
* Money is going to be an issue this year—suddenly $10 is the new $5 and $1 is the new 10cent.
* 1 Malaysia menjana transformasi is the slogan for this year

Fun things around a department store and the aftermath

What is so amazing is that Idul Fitri Decoration is already in most department store.

We went to Jusco this afternoon to find some new clothes for the kids. Jusco was filled with people but other stores were still ok. We did some fast shopping at Jusco and went outside. I love this crocs hello kitty ( if only they have one for adult!huhuhu). 22082010466a
It’s very hard to find the right size for the kids because those clothes were mixed together – one on top of another. My son is no longer can shop at kids department. We have to browse through adult section for his size!

And as always I can’t help myself from taking a few self portrait in my car. This is casual me with less makeup in the afternoon! 22082010455a

First time every my son asked me to take his photos with his new outfit! Of course I wouldn’t deny him of that. I immediately asked my other two kids to do the same.
I am a bit disappointed that this photo does turn out right. I just love watching the three of them interact with each other. Hope I could create the same mood in the next impromptu photo session. 
I bought this for my daughter. So so cute!

Girlfriend, Hesitation and what i love about Sunday

I love the feeling of calm and cool at this early in the morning. I feel like I can do anything. Right now I just felt like sharing my digital scarpbook work that I've done since yesterday. So I've managed to make 4 layouts using my newly purchased kit.

and Girlfriend by Shabby Miss Jane.
