Kit Showcase: Making the Grade

I really love kits about Schools, so I was very excited to see this kit. It feels with so many beautiful papers and elements related to school. It’s called Making the Grade by Jennifer Schmitt. Available at Sunshine Studio Scraps.

Making The Grade

“This jam packed kit is bursting at the seams with school themed items for students of all ages. Included in the kit are 12 papers and over 70 elements! Also look for the coordinating wordart titles and add-on paper pack.” ~ excerpt from Sunshine Studio Scraps

This is my layout using the above kit

Something crazy happens today

I started the day with the intention of spending it with my kids. Taking them out of Bangi and see different things.





We went to the Mines Shopping Center, have lunch at Subway and did some shopping. Mostly it's all about my eldest son. It was his birthday last week and I didn't have a chance to buy him new clothes. Well he is no longer wearning kids size.

After that I went to Alamanda to pay my broadband bill and I ended up changing my broadband plan special for government officer. And I ended up with a free Nokia phone.

Friday Pleasure Speedlinking: 13.05.2011

First of all today is May 13th. It’s the most historical day in Malaysia. There was some major riot in Malaysia base on races and a lot of people died. It was back in 1969. Sometimes it is important to know our history in order to move forward as a Malaysian.

Here are some great post that worth reading

  • May 13 riot, some important facts to know about that day
  • 68  I really love this blog

  • Today.. I like the simplicity of this post. I might copy this post for my blog entry

  • Love is beautiful when you find the right one. So sweet and romantic.

  • i never thought that is really  a sweet blog post. I really love it.

  • I love looking at the beautiful nature photos 

  • I love photography, and looking at beautiful photos really makes me happy especially this and this

  • Very creative post about raindrops

  • I just can’t believed that America send James home. Seriously! Somehow I felt cheated. What is going on here?

  • Another great idea to start journaling in your scrapbook layout using short stories

I hope you enjoy my little findings to keep you update on life in general.

Amazingly beautiful performance : American Idol: Top 4

image

I am a bit late watching American Idol tonight because I was out. The American Idol journey is about to end in a few weeks. Only 4 contestant left. Not really the final 4 I would have guess way back in January.

James - was great and amazing as usually but not as great as Adam Lambert way back in 2009.

Hailey – not so great performance, totally a wrong song for her. She always has trouble choosing the songs that fits her. When ever she did choose the right one, she can be amazing.

Scotty – what more can I say. Simply beautiful and great. I am already looking forward to his first debut album.

Lauren – wow! amazing performance from her. I really hope she gets to stay another week.

I think Hailey will be going home tomorrow. She’s not consistent with her performance, some times bad and some times over the top great.

What I think? Movie Madness

I’ve been watching movies like crazy these last few days. So many great movies coming out and I really need to make sure to make time for some of my favorite movies.

#1) Something Borrowed
”Friendships are tested and secrets come to the surface when terminally single Rachel falls for Dex, her best friend Darcy's fiancé”

image

I’ve read the book way back in 2005 and I really love it. So I was naturally excited when they make this book into a movie. It’s about time.

What I think?

  • the movie is about the same with the book and I like it
  • Kate Hudson really make a great Darcy
  • I was a bit excited when I saw Emily Giffin in the move even though it was a split second.

#2) Fast Five

“Dominic and his crew find themselves on the wrong side of the law once again as they try to switch lanes between a ruthless drug lord and a relentless federal agent. “

image

What I think?

  • what more can I say except exceptionally great movie as far as part 5 is concern
  • love all the casts
  • love the storyline even though it feels a little bit like Italian Job
  • I really love the train hijack scene, supper cool moves

#3) Thor – 3D
”The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders. “

image

What I think?

  • I really really love the movie
  • It was amazingly good and beautiful movie, lots of action and drama
  • the 3D version was great too. It was my first experience watching 3D movie and it wasn’t disappoint
  • I really wish they have more scene between Jane and Thor
  • I  highly recommend this movie

g-list : 11.05.2011

I was inspired by amy glist and I decided to make one for myself as a reminder of things in my life that I am grateful for.

garden_fun01

Today I am grateful for ….

  • I have a job to go to every morning, even though I kept complaining about how routine it has been for me lately
  • “Criminal Minds” to keep me occupied at night
  • Yahoo Messenger
  • pizza night , I can enjoy them with my family
  • beautiful purple flowers, blooming early in the morning in my mini garden
  • a promise of a vacation at the end of the year
  • my soft and comfy pink carpet
  • morning coffee with me, tumblr and my computer
  • music to keep me inspired and motivated
  • late night hugging and kissing good night from my children
  • iphone 4
  • toric contact lens
  • twitter for keeping me company , never a dull moment
  • off day during week days, sometimes I just need to take a break from work and just chill
  • of course air condition. In this super hot weather that we are experiencing  lately, having an air condition is a bless.

Wednesday Wonders

I just came back to work today after taking the day off yesterday. As usually there are so many things I need to look after. I can’t believed I’ve missed the mini party they have at the office. My busy Wednesday ending with a great solution for a problem that have been bugging me since a few weeks ago.

I am going to miss my parents. They will be at Mecca and Madinah for 2 weeks.

My sweet escape


I felt so tired today more than usual. I took the day off to give my parents a lift to the airport. They were going to Mecca for ‘umrah’ and they will be there for about two weeks. I am really going to miss them.
And at the end of the day I ended up at Mid Valley with a bag full of new magazines and a very tired body and mint. I have so many things to share but I just don’t have the energy to do it tonight. Will share with you later.

Please don’t say you love me…

please dont say

“Please don’t say you love me when all you think about is her
Please don’t say you love me when you don’t even call me
Please don’t say you love me when you can’t wait to get away from me
Please don’t say you love me when all that matters to you is your happiness
Please don’t say you love me when all you care about is yourself
Please don’t say you love me when all you want is my unconditional devotion”

Please don’t say you love me when you can’t handle me- the good, the bad and the ugly
Please don’t say you love me when you only be good to me when it’s convenient to you
Please don’t say you love me when all you wanted to do is to change me
Please don’t say you love me when you don’t even bother to ask me about my day
Please don’t say you love me when all you do is lie to me

It just don’t mean anything to me
It just makes me confuse
It just drives me crazy
It just makes me feel sick
It just makes me feel betray

Please don’t say you love me…. when you don’t even know what it means to love me…. “ ~~ hanizeyecandy ~~

All about yellow and Slice of Summer

It’s already Monday here in Malaysia and it’s the second week of May. All I wanted to do this Monday is just hanging out at home. When will I ever  get back this energy and zest for life? At this point in my life I found so many things I wanted to do and I wanted more than what I am currently doing.

Back to a fun stuff. Last Friday Chirstina has a new kit released called Slice of Summer. It’s a collabs with Elle Lash. I just love the color. It reminds me a lot of all things happy.

journalingseries

And today Journaling Prompt

#4) Calendar Queues

  • What is your favorite month?
  • What is you favorite day of the year?
  • What is your favorite day of the week?
  • What is your favorite holiday?
  • What is your favorite season?
  • Do you prefer summer or winter? Rainy or hot?
  • What was the best day  of your life?
  • What do you do in your spare time?
  • Finish this statement: If I had the time, I would love to ….
  • What did you do on your last birthday?

(sources: Creating Keepsakes)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As always, I will choose one of the above prompt for my post today… I choose  Finish this statement: If I had the time, I would love to ….

If I had the time, I would love to spend it pampering myself. Really indulge myself in something purely selfish.

The thing I really wanted to do the most is pack my beg and travel to a place where nobody knows me, stay in a sweet and comfy inn with beautiful scenery. With a camera in my hand I would spend the day taking photos of things I see and experience. During the evening I would spend it in a Jacuzzi , having a full  body massage and a facial. At night I would have dinner in a fancy restaurant, meet new people and after that I just curl on my bed with a great book.

How about you? What would you do If you have all the time in the world?
