It's the party time!by

Wow, i hardly had enough sleep! 

Shabby's 2nd anniversary "party" kicked off on Friday night, it was so fun with Sharon, Lia and all the girls who attended crop, games of course were always the highlight, everyone went home happily with prize and goodie bag and and.... projects done with Sharon! 

Yesterday everything went smoothly too, I arrived to prepare for my class early with
Bev in the morning, but you know what, some girls were eager too, arrived 15 mins early before the class!!! I have to say I enjoyed the class so much, especially with my eyes wide open when I saw the game prices and the goodie bags and the lucky draw price! Oh, boy boy, you have to be in all the lessons, Shabby is so generous... I totally love it!  

And the smile from our lucky draw winner!

Then, here we were, with the completed project taught, mine was hanging behind me on the wall, I think I am gonna make some tiny ones to hand on the Christmas tree!
I went home to catch some sleep after the lesson and I didn't make it to Lia's card lesson ( really felt so sorry for myself, I couldn't stay awake, too tired )

But today, in 45 mins time, I need to get ready and head to SC, can't tell you how excited to be in the lesson of Lia and later in Sharon's, I can learn, hehe, how wonderful is that!

Working side, 5 more days to go before the school is out for winter holiday, seriously I can't wait any more, there were too many things going on for this term, I am so tired... before I leave to Lia's lesson, also want to show you how sweet my Renee was, she had her music recital on Friday, played 10 pcs straight and received a special cert for that, she also sang a beautiful song called "wind song" from Mighty Joe Young, she has the most touching voice... I know, shame on me, right, you mummy, but how I can hide it? I will try to put her song on the blog soon, ok...

Till then, hugs to all...

Human Machine

That's me.

For weeks now, I feel like that I am a machine. Wake up as soon as the alarm clock rings every morning, get dressed, go to work, finish work ( late of course ), arrive home, play with the girls ( eat, read story, check on homework and put them to bed ), by the time when everything needs to be done is done, I just want to throw myself on bed and sleep...  I am counting the days till then I can turn off my alarm and have some decent sleep, 1 week and 4 more days!

Both girls are sick, so bad, isn't it! Just check out what I did this morning: 

7:40 arrived at clinic and ran to get a number for Rafeeqa, no 6, not bad, isn't it ( for those mummy who know well how the clinic system works in Brunei, this is a good number )
8:3o Rafeeqa had her injection
8:45 Arrived in Dr. Chan early and waited for door to open at 9am
9:05 Met Dr. Chan and had him checked Renee
9:20 Collected medicine and headed home
9:45 Arrived home and fed medicine to Renee, had to leave the girls at home 
10:00 Arrived in school to work

After a contented afternoon, obviously I will soon hit the pillow.

Nearly completed work for SC, I haven't found time to take any pic yet but promise to show you as soon as I have time to do that tomorrow. Just think about tomorrow is painful! I have 7 lessons straight and meeting after that!

SC is having its big celebration, have you visited it yet? SALE SALE SALE, come on, girls...

Many pictures!

I'm such a bad blogger, I admit. Packed with work and busy fulfill my role as entertainer, driver, mother to two demanding girls, you can imagine how that is... Back to some interesting event last week, one of the high lights is the International Day at school. I frankly lost count of how many nationalities are in the school and being an on-off absent minded person like me, I left the memory card in the office when I supposed to take loads of pictures with different costumes. But I did manage to snap a few:

Here are the different booth we had, the young children from kindy to reception "travelled with their passport from country to country", after learnt things and culture from different country, they got a "visa stamp". Many delicious food were offered at booth, but not mine one, after the numerous scandle on Chinese product, I thought I should just keep mine simple.

Look at these little people, I'm sure they had such a wonderful time dressing up. I am still thinking I should have some alternative next year for my girls, not cheongsam again, maybe I can make one of them "Mu Lan" and the other one "?" any idea?"

Scrapping Marathon is on in Shabbychic, I'm glad many of our scrappers take part in this, keep going, everyone! And also put these dates in your dairy: 28/11, 29/11 and 30/11, do not miss SC's 2nd anniversary! I will be teaching " Frame it up" lesson, something very simple but turn out to be a great decoration! Lia and Sharon will also teach during these dates, don't miss this !

My little baby turned 5

yesterday, that's the day. She is officially 5 now. The party was small but a very sweet one.

Many pictures to share. She kicked off the party at home of course, by dressing herself up, first with all masks...then the new bikini.

After we finished decorating the place, she addressed herself of the "queen" and "ordered" for special shot just by herself.

There were many people at the club in weekend as usual, but the weather was perfect, the little girls enjoyed swimming before the games. Well, with the not well planned the game, as I forgot to bring any music supply, so the passing parcel and the newspaper dancing were held with the little help of the music from the handphone! But anyway, they didn't mind at all, Rafeeqa and Emma won the newspaper dancing with Emma carrying Raf in her arms, lol!

You see, I was out of idea for the pinata, but Alice, Amirah's mummy, a very creative lady, gave me a SPIDER, yah! Look at the girls and boys, they loved it! The spider was beautiful ,with the googly eyes and wriggly legs, I didn't want to hit it in the first place, but it WAS NOT my birthday, all the 5 years old and plus the 20 years old enjoyed hitting it!

After the cake, bubble time, the whole party turned into an ugly mud fight, my young friend Angel and Jerry became the center of the attack, nearly everyone ended up with a super muddy look.
And frankly talking, I was so tired after the party and hit the bed at 8:30! But that's not the end of the story, my birthday girl woke me up this morning at 6:00 and asked me to open all her presents... Tata, that's the life of a mother!
I feel very bad that I didn't do any scrapping in the past week, but hold on, I WAS thinking about scrapping all the time though, really, wishing that we have 28 hours a day, just 4 hours for the crafty me.
