Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Are you currently having fun at a Halloween Party or like me, sitting in front of my PC? Well well, party is not for me as I'm a social cheong-ster only. So, basically you won't find me initiate a party session. Just had a sumptuous dinner @ Shokudo in Raffles City. It operates like Marche but are mainily selling Japanese food. They have a nice range of yummy food. A bit lazy to download the photos from my HP, shall share more when I'm ready to bombard the blog with the photos of the yummy food that I've had during tonight's session. Ciao...

Cupcake Birthday Card

OK, this is a much belated post, the card has been given away weeks ago...

I'm loving the Inkadinkado Cupcake Birthday Stamp set, did a pretty simple card for Lilian's Birthday. I've much fun with coloring the cupcake and adding some glitters to the cupcake. Are you tempted to have a mouthful of the cupcake? keke :P

PP is a RAK from Lia sweetie. I always have difficult using the Paisley design. This is my first trial with paisely PP and I'm loving the coordination. Hope Lilian love it too!

RolleR CoaSteR...

My mood has been like a roller coaster for the past 1 week. For one moment, I was at the peek; and before I know it, I was already at rock bottom...

It seems that I'm having another round of mood swing...

I've been rather sick of logging in to the internet recently. I used to log in every night, at least to check on forum, emails & blogs that inspire me in scrapbooking,etc, despite having faced the PC at work for 10-12hrs a day. But recently, I don't feel like logging in... is until these 2 days that I started logging in, just to play some games in facebook to distress, and trying to break my own record... Ended up, I got too excited and "stressed" of not being able to make new record!

I used to log in company webmail every night to clear my email so that I can spend lesser time to sort out the bulk of incoming emails on the next day, but recently I did not. I feel so sicked!

Since Sep, I've been busy backing up fellow colleague's work during their leave / business trips; and backing up China counterpart's work during their golden week holiday; busy with the company Xmas Lunch Event preparation, and having cross training with my fellow colleague. I hardly get a chance to have a good breath...

I think I need a break! But Kit-Kat is definitely not enough!!!

Procasinating...

I've been procasinating for the longest time... been wanting to start a separate blog for my craft stuff so that I can share with my craft mates what I've done and been doing or working on, but I wonder if I can cope. This blog is more of a personal blog and share more of my person feelings so I do not really share openly with most of my craft mates...

I do know of people who owns 2 blogs or more for different purposes. One for own personal recordings, one photography Blog and one for her kids, and even challenge blogs, etc I really admire them and wonder how they can cope so well when some of them are actually full time working mom...

Well well, let me sort out my thought first and figure out if I can cope and how I can cope... I guess the sick monster is still drilling me and I can't really think properly for me...

树…

不知从何时,树,成为了我摄影的课题之一。细想,应该是从Fraser Hill的那一次旅程吧…那一天,原本要早些起床摄日出,怎知却睡过了头。于是,拿着数码相机拍下清晨破晓四周的景色。无意间发现了这些干枯的树干所形成的图形,觉得十分维美,便按下了快门…

I do not know when trees have become one of the subjects of my photography. Thinking back, it probably started from the Fraser Hill Trip. That very dawn, I had wanted to capture the beautiful sun rise but had overslept. So I started to snap around instead... I've discovered this branches formation by chance and find them very beautiful so, I started to press down the shutter...

后来,凤出阁拍外景时,随行到Punggol那儿。从丝茅根(lalang)堆中发现了这棵干枯的树,觉得十分有意境,便不做二想,将此景拍下。
The other time when I accompany my best friend, Steph, to Punngol for her wedding outdoor shooting; I spotted this withered tree among the lalang and find this in a very artistic mood. Without second thought, I took a snap shot of it.

接着,到了Seletar Camp又在车上发现了这棵老树,它的枝干,形成了非常漂亮的图形,令我兴奋不已,即刻按下快门,好不容易抓到不错的角度,拍下这棵老树,这是其中一张我最满意的作品。
Followed by that, I spotted this old tree in Selatar Camp. The formation of its branches is really beautiful, making me so thrilled... With much difficulty, I finally managed to get a good angle in the car and took this snap shot of the old tree, which is one of my favorite shots.

从此,我与树,结下不解之缘。尤其酷爱那些干枯的树或老树,因为它们总在苍凉中带来一丝凄美…
There after, there seems to be an indissoluble bond between the trees and me, especially with those withered trees as they always seems to bring out a note of beauty from the melancholy mood...

树,可以为我们挡风遮雨,你是否找到可以依靠一辈子的大树呢?我期盼着…
Trees, shelter us from sun & rain. Have you found this tree whom can shelter you for life? I'm looking forward to one...

Into my blues...

I'm into my blues recently... Feeling pretty alone & helpless when I home alone, facing the 4 sided walls. Now I can fully understand the boredom of mom being home alone the whole day through, and can understand that why she simply yebber/nag non-stop when we are home. If this were to continue, I think I'll go crazy soon, but luckily, mom will soon be back from Malaysia. Really looking forward to her return...

I'm really sicked of eating outside food / instant noodles... it's simply too much a hassle to cook just for 1 pax and I've been pretty caught up with work recently so by the time I reached home, most time, I dead time and wouldn't care to take away food for dinner.

A lousy Saturday with lousy mood, actually got an invitation to celebrate Hari Raya Puasa at someone's home, but really not in a mood to go out... Decided to try out whip up a western set lunch and am pretty satisfied with the end result. At least it is edible and do not taste too bad after all... Pork chop marinated with ginger juice, dark soya sauce, pepper & sesame oil; baked Potato with cheese & basil leaves ( I played cheat by boiling the potato first before putting into the microwave oven with the cheese, is this still considered baked?); cherry tomato + a glass of fresh orange juice...

The whole day is spent sorting out the spree items from stamp desires and by watching the cantonese drama serial vcd (The Gentle Crackdown) which I bought last Sun... can you imagine, I actually watched throughout the night till 6am. Surprisingly, I woke up at 11am+, I'm expecting to sleep till much later hours, but my mind just seem restles...

And again, today is spent watching "The Gentle Crackdown" with doing the home chores - sweeping and mopping the floor... and this is how my precious Sun passed...

Tomorrow will need to go back to work, and here comes my Monday blues, and this is how my blues continues...

Tired...

I do not know what has come to me,... Why is it that these few days that I feeling extremely tired...

Is it due to stress building up from work, having so many pull in from customer during this festive break and also having to back up my China counterpart during their Golden Week break? And with all these, to struggle to turn around response within 24-48hrs...

Or is it due to unexplainable mood swing, causing me low spirits and low energy level?

My battery is almost completely flat each day I reached home from work. I'm so tired that I'm really brain dead for the latest commissioned project, that I almost feel like giving up... I drop dead in bed almost immediately after dinner...

Feels like tearing, which I feel, is always the most useful channel for me to release my stress, as this time round, even chocolates can't help...

My tears have since dried up after 9 months of agony, I do not wish to tear so easily... I told myself, no matter how, I need to stay strong... Tough as it may seems to be, but I need to tell myself; life is beautiful and there are so much more for me to explore. Each day passed is a lesson learnt, be it a repeated lesson or new lesson, I shall learn & gain more... Faith will give me the power to overcome all difficulties, I need to stay positive!
