Been always interested in photography and digital arts… Tried my hand @ photo manipulation…


Amateur…! Haha!


Mum and My Hobbitses

Sooo… yesterday, we finally got to watch the most anticipated The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey! Yey! We absolutely loved it!

Sandwiched between my two hobbitses, MasterD and MissL, I had to do a series of shushing left and right as the film started rolling.  Though, there were times when MissL grew restless as the film progressed. She easily gets bored when having to sit down for longer than three minutes. So, imagine how it must have been for her when she had to sit through the entire movie that ran for three hours or so. Poor thing, she resorted to eating, drinking, and playing with her 3D glasses, but didn’t make much noise, except for the occasional “How soon will the movie end?”

MasterD, on the other hand, was quite taken with the film. Every time I checked on him, his eyes were glued on the screen, though he had to frequent the loo from drinking too much liquid. He later told me that his favorite character in the movie was Gandalf but that he likes Legolas best for his bow shooting skills.

Well, personally, I had a soft spot for the Dwarf king, Thurin.

DIY: organza + lace

So, what has been keeping me preoccupied lately, other than pleasure surfing and reading blogs? Daydreaming and sewing. By hand.

I’m making an organza+lace poncho/kaftan for Kat, my sister. She’s going to wear it over the “little white dress” that I made around November for my other sister, Ella. More on that in a future post. You see, I’m the eldest of 4 girls and I love dressing them up styling my 3 sisters. When they let me, anyway.  OK, going back to the organza+lace piece…

My inspiration?

Then, here’s me. Sewing. In my sleepwear.

Finally, I’ve finished said poncho/kaftan after 4 nights. I only had the evenings to do my sewing.


And now, it’s ready to be shipped off and I’m ready to embark on a new project. I’m thinking, a long jersey dress for my Mum? Yeah… perhaps. I’ll be posting pictures of my sister wearing the outfit soon after I have the photos.

Anyhoo… Indulge me.

Who else can pull off this outfit better than her? She’s so elegant.

These outfits are to die for, aren’t they? And of course, props to all these ladies who always look impeccable, ethereal, and dazzling.

So, I’ve been thinking… perhaps this would be the first of a weekly posting of my red, green, purple, blue, etc. carpet favorites. Yeah, I think this would be a great way for me to keep track of all the outfits that impress and inspire me.
