New Year 2009!!!!

As I am writing this, it is 11: 23pm, not long till a new year. Year 2009. I am looking very much to it. It will be a year when I graduate with a BA in Psychology and Humanities. It will be a year when I get engaged to the love of my life and a year when I can finally get back to the workforce after years of being a full time student and earn some dough!
Anyway, to end 2008, Bryan and I had dinner at Casa Roma tonight along Bukit Timah Road. We shared their homemade squid ink pasta and a seafood pizza, along with dessert and red wine. It was a very nice pleasant dinner indeed. Each NYE we usually go out with friends for dinner and partying afterwards and drinking too much, but this year it seems everyone had either family commitments or am overseas so this year it was just Bryan and I.
When the year comes to an end, do you ponder over the things that you have done? Regrets or acomplishments? Things you wish you would have done? Things that bring you happiness and things that cracked you up so bad you had tears in your eyes? Do you do a mental list of things you need to acomplish in the new year?
I do those things pretty much a few days before the new year. It is a time for reflection. It is a time to dream about your life in the new year. That's what I do..I go for afternoon strolls and think about these things. You'll find so many memories and events just fill up your mind all at once, some really do make me smile...and they're the ones I like best.
How do you reflect on the year that has just gone by?
Here is wishing everyone a very Happy New Year with lots of happiness!
Take care and I shall see you in 2009!

Update on 'Love' letters

Yes... I also realised that the colour of these two pictures do not match but it is more true to the first pic, the cushion is more 'maroony' than purple (despite what my camera captures!) I decided to just tie a pretty dusty pink and mint green satin ribbon on one side to keep it simple. This will be given as a Christmas present tomorrow night at a friend's place for our Christmas Eve dinner. Hope they'll like it!

My first attempt doing papercraft

I actually think this card looks better than in the picture! It was my first attempt at doing papercraft and I got to admit, I quite enjoyed it. I may go to the shops and get more papercraft supplies tomorrow! I think I'll put this up on my etsy shop!

'Love' Letters

Love is in the air...
I just finished this vintage 'Love' letters on aida band and it'll be sewn onto a cushion cover. I'm thinking a maroon coloured one will go nicely with the colours in this piece!
This is french knots galore!

Phuket trip, November 2008

My boyfriend Bryan and I went to Phuket last month for 5 days. This was our 3rd trip to Phuket in five years. This time, Patong was a lot more crowded with tourists and more markets! We had hired a cheap jeep for the entire trip and it was great to have the freedom to go where we wanted to. We stayed at Patong Cottage Resort (which was a bad choice!) but apart from that it was a fun trip! We stuffed ourselves daily with cheap seafood (love love love the huge fresh oysters!) and crabs and banana smoothies! Yummy!
