Groovie Project of the week 16~22 Feb



So happy & excited that my Valentine Mini Accordion Album has been chosen as the Groovie Project of the week 16~22 Feb 2009. I felt so shy and excited about it as I know my work, compared to a lot others, are much more simpler and less outstanding. Thanks for all the enouragement!

最后一次

这是最后一次机会了,
希望你不要再度让我失望,
一旦我绝望了,
说什么也无法挽回。。。

Saturday, February 21, 2009

我的心好痛。。。

为何你一次又一次的犯错?
为何你就不会反省?
我的心好痛,
我已无法言喻。。。

不再为你流泪

曾几何时为你留下多少的泪水,在无数个夜晚。。。
然而,这一切你都视若无睹。
如今我已重拾自己,决定不再为你流泪,
将过去埋葬心底。。。
(灵感源自:别再为他流泪)



别再为他流泪
演绎:梁静茹
词:黃婷 曲:易杰齐

你走了太久一定很累
他错了不该你来面对
离开他就好 就算了 心情很干脆
他其实没有那么绝对
远一点你就看出真伪
离开他不等于你的世界会崩溃
转个弯你还能飞
就别再为他流泪
别再让他操控你的伤悲
就算有一点愚昧一点点后悔
也不要太狼狈
他不值得你的泪
把那遗憾留在大雨的街
你曾在迷失的旅途中盲目追
以后为自己醉

每段感情都非常珍贵
他的好你就放在心扉
记得有个人曾让你那样的心醉
你笑了照亮夜幕的黑
什么梦都不比你的美
多少年以后想起他还有些体会
那些你已无所谓


就别再为他流泪
别再让他操控你的伤悲
就算有一点愚昧一点点后悔
也不要太狼狈
他不值得你的泪
把那遗憾留在大雨的街
你曾在迷失的旅途中盲目追
以后为自己醉

就别再为他流泪
别再让他操控你的伤悲
就算有一点愚昧一点点后悔
也不要太狼狈
他不值得你的泪
把那遗憾留在大雨的街
你曾在迷失的旅途中盲目追
以后管他是谁

Quote of the day

Chance upon this quote from the Global Money Crunch section of My Paper.

"I had a cheque returned by my bank earlier.
"Insufficient funds," it said.
My funds or the bank's?"
-- Anonymous

First sight at the quote makes me laugh at the humour & wittiness of the quoter, however, second thought of it, this quote seems to sound sarcastic and pessimistic at the same time. The economy is coming to a recession and several banks are folding up which leads to the rationale of this quote. Will this quote indeed turn true to all those who got bounced cheque? I certainly hope not...

Pig Trotters Vs Elephant Leg

I had an "arguement" with my family whether my right foot looked more like a Pig Trotter or Elephant Leg, so what do you think?


Baddie Robinhood teased that he tot my leg looked sexy with the stocking (ankle guard) when he saw my display pic of my MSN. Kok his head - "Ouch!!!" hehee...
I can now walk around better but still limping with this swollen foot of mine, wonder when will I fully recover? Days without cold drinks during the hot weather is super terrible :(

Love is all around

I'm blessed to be the lucky one surrounded by people who love me. Thanks for being part of my life...

A friendship Tag, such a simple gift, yet means so much...

A Valentine's card given to me by June for the sake of my fetish for handmade card, this really touches my heart :)
A Pack of Fancl Calorie Limit Pills, helping me to lower my calorie intake, dun ask me how effective it is, I still have yet tried it out, will let you know if it really brings result. Hmm... if take it positively - thanks for understanding my agony to fight against fat; if take it negatively - hey you, trying to hint that I'm very fat is it? Muahaha... nevermind, I still can take it, I admit I'm "debu"...

A bouquest of sweet violet roses...
A treat to marvelous cream, finally get to have a taste of it... yummy Macaron Rouge Framboise. But somehow, the presentation of the ice cream doesn't look as fantastic as we saw in the brochure.
Of coz, I do not measure how much I'm loved by the amount of gifts I received. Just wanna thanks these lovely bunch for showering me with such lovely gifts. There are still many people out there whom I knew -- are concerned, cared & loved me. Especially my Ong Susu, absence made the heart grow fonder. Love ya, hope u have had a great Valentine with Terry.

An Honourable mention in YSS Blog

Woo Hoo! I'm so excited to learn that my Valentine Mini Accordion Album has been featured in Your Scrapbook Stash's Blog. I've only get to realise about the challenge on 14th Feb late night but by the time I managed to access the gallery and upload the project, it is already 15th Feb morning which I thought I'm still in time due to the time difference with US, however the upload time show it has already passed the challenge closing date line. So I'm no expecting to get any prize but having a honourable mention is bringing me to cloud 9! This has been most enouraging and motivated me.

Mr. Robinhood actually requested it as a gift when I shared the news with him, haha... I think better not, else will cause misunderstanding to his gf, but I promised a card for him, till next time we had a gathering coz now I'm limping and travelling on a roller chair :P

Check out YSS blog and you may refer to simple tutorial steps here.

I need a break!!!

While I enjoyed today's crop., I feel very sad too... I've missed the chance to join CH & Sol to Taiwan for a holiday in March :(

I seriously long for a break, ever since I joined the company 1.5yrs ago, I hardly had a chance. no, should be NEVER have a chance to go for a break. Very unluckily, most time when I wanted to do so, it's either the slot is taken or I did not managed to get the leave approval in time and missed the chance.

Applying 1 day leave to go for my gastric consultation is so difficult (time slot is often b/w 12pm - 1pm, nether here or there, hard to take time off) ; let alone 1 week for holiday. The worst thing you cannot confirm the trip until you get the approval from all your fellow colleague's approval. So, if you ever get a promotion tour package, you can't proceed with booking, coz even though most often your fellow colleague will likely approve your leave, you wont know what your boss will come up with...

xxx is going for biz trip, you can't go... Internal Audit, you can't go... this is the type of rubbish I faced when applying for leave for my gastric consultation. Until the day I got supper pissed off and showed a black face, I was called into the room for a lecture! Say why didn't I consider taking time off instead of 1 day leave! In the 1st place, when you disapprove my leave application, have you ever propose me with the option? Also, do you think I prefer not to the time off my medical consultation, I could have saved my leave for better purposes! My consultation slot got postpone so many times, and often for months coz it's really super hard to get the slot until I surrender and totally stop the consultation.

I guess, I will need to throw in my letter then I will be able to go for a holiday with much peace and stress free from all these stupid nonsense. With the bad economy, should I make this step? Mom & Dad is discouraging, for fear I will have difficulty in getting a new job... but this impulse to quit is really getting stronger and stronger...

Valentine's Crop and Valentine's Mini Accordion Album Tutorial

Well, this month's crop with Changi Simei CC & Our Craft Place happens to be on Valentine's day! So, expectantly, the turn up rate is super low, but I choose to attend this crop session without any regrets. Did a simple mini accordion album with some simple love quotes that fits into the EK Success mini luggage bag.




Materials used: EK Success Mini Luggage Bag, The Chocolate Box collection colorcore cardstock, Clear Acrylic Christmas embellishments used in cover of the accordion album (oops fogotten the brand), Antique Rose Mini Fresh cuts by Rebecca Sower, MM ribbon, DCWV Colored Love Rub On Quote Stack, MAMBI Heart bling, Daisy's D You are Journal Tag, buttons, Scrolls & Rose Cut Out from PP scraps

Tutorial:
- Use a 2 colour-toned cardstock and cut a 8"(L) x3.5"(W) strip,
- Then make 3 folds at each 2" interval
- Decorate the cover with your favourite embellishments
- Turn the card strip around and start decorating with rub-ons, embellishments like buttons and heart blings, and paper flower cut out. Add in some love phrases or quotes to the pages and a journal tag to add in your personal love notes/

For the 1st time, I won the most favorite vote! I guess the luggage bag has actually help me won more votes due to having a mini accordion album in it make it stands out from the rest of the projects / LO. I personally heart the altered heart album by Yen & lovely Valentine's cards made by June!

This is the kit I won in the challenge :)


I received this lovely Valentine's card from June. Ooh, I simply heart this card! Go check out her blog, she, makes many lovely LOs & Projects, she's really fast in scrapping and great at layering and cut out! Hush hush. she's the super scrapper mom who can breastfeed and scrap at the same time!


I also had so much fun with June's newly bought of Autumn Leaves Stamps - Love in a Flourish. Thanks to the superb quality of the versafine ink pad. I managed to stamp these clear & crisp images even on the textured cardstock! June. thanks so much for the Valentine's card and lending me your newly bought stamp set!


And yes, last but not least. thanks Our Craft Place for the Valentine's RAK!

Happy Valentine's Day! 情人节快乐!

P/S: A stolen snapshot of my sis' roses, aren't they lovely? :P

Life Sucks!

You must have wonder, what the hell am I still blogging at this hour? Well well, I'm super frustrated with my work, being arrowed to train new staff and no one to back up my work when I conduct training and all these happened just before Chinese New Year when customers are busy chasing for parts before we closed for the 2 miserable days for CNY so that their overseas can continue to run production without any impact.

All things come together and work started to pile up and making me feel suffocated! I worked from home until I'm so tired that I fallen asleep and shortly, I jumped up! Coz I really need to get my things done else the snowball effect will be so big that I may not be able to handle anymore!

This is the frustration of being a Customer Service (CS), especially in the electronic industry. Basically CS = Cio Sai! Don't you agree? (For those CS out there!) When the industry is blooming, we are busy pulling in the parts, busy whole day through and hardly have time for toilet visits. When the economy slows down, you think we should be much more relaxed since no more pull in from customers. NOT TRUE!!! We are even busier with the push out and cancellation requests from customers, and busy finding ways to retain the orders.

I tell myself, the next job I find, I definitely want to be out of the electronic industry as work load is always there and when economy crisis strikes, we are always the one who suffered first - Pay cut, Bonus cut, or even retrenchment!

Enough with my rattling & venting of frustration, need to go back to my work and back to hell again :(
