5 Places I go for Inspiration

I have been feeling sick and uninspired since a few weeks ago. Nothing I do seems to be good enough. I lost the passion for scrapping and even blogging. So I decided to take a day off yesterday from turning on my lappy and post random things. I spend most of the day resting, watching movies and reading.

Today I was ready to be in front if my computer and start scrapping and blogging again. So the first five places I go for jumpstart my mood and inspire me are as follows….. I just love these blogs / forums.


#1) A Beautiful Mess

I always feel fresh and inspire after spending the time to read elsie’s blog. She is so creative and fill with amazing ideas.


#2) Digishoptalk

It is always great to spend time hanging out at digishoptalk forum and galleries. Some of my blogs ideas came from the forum at digishoptalk


#3) the Daily digi

This is such a resourceful  place to be when you are looking for a new and creative ways to scraps. Lots of beautiful ideas to get you going.


#4) my words

Taking a peak at Amy’s life is something I did in a regular basis. I like reading her story, enjoy her family photos and follow her projects. I always feel motivated and inspire after every visit.


#5) Campfire Chic

I love lists. Even though I don’t really share Kam’s passion for camping and outdoor stuffs but I do share her passion for photography, blogging and lists.

Canon IXUS 220 .. delighting you always


Today out of the blue, I decided that I must have this beautiful Canon IXUS 220 camera as my second camera. I just want to have a portable and light camera for the whole family. My kids and me can enjoy for a long period of time or until they come out with “out of this world” new design.

Model: Canon IXUS 220
Price: RM799


I bought one in black just because they don’t have one in pink for this model and I like the texture of the black design.

These are the photos taken with this camera, straight out of the camera (SOOC) and with auto setting.






What did I think?
* I like the design, slim and light
* the price is very attractive.
* I like that Canon add a few creative artistic filters in this camera like Toy camera filter. I can’t wait to play with it.
* it is simple enough for my kids to operate
* I am not sure if I  will ever use the HD movie that comes with this camera but I like to have that option
* the shutter press is faster. This model comes with DIGIC 4 imaging processor

I can’t live without color

I just can’t remember the first time I discover colors. As far as I can remember I’ve always love colors and can’t live without  it. Somehow the right color seems to lift up my mood.
So it’s natural for me to have a range of colors as far as makeup is concern. Hence the new eye shadows from Miss Rose. I’ve never tried this brand before, so far I really like the color. I bought  two of them at $30 each.
new-eyeshadow-03 new-eyeshadow-02 This is me playing around with the color new-eyeshadow-01
I think these colors match with any outfit. Somehow I don't really like to ware eye shadows that match exactly like my outfit. Mostly I love to wear pink with a touch of blue and brown.

Wednesday Fun

I am on leave from work for the rest of the  week but this afternoon I make a special appearance at my office for “Jamuan Hari Raya  BPM”

The food wasn’t bad but I just can’t eat a lot of them. I took my kids with me cause they didn’t have school today.

Some random things about today…
* I received some weird message today
* reacquainted with some old friends
* a lot of photography session
* wishing that everyday feels like today… relax and happy
* re-watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S just because I missed them


It was so much fun to dress up and be pretty. I just wish that I can feel as pretty as I look.

Mode: so many things to think about and so many  plans to make
