23rd of Jan – Auspicious Day

These were the two wedding couples for two lovely newly-weds who were married on 23rd of Jan 2010. Seems like 23rd of Jan was an auspicious day to get married….

Wedding couple for JacKh

The bride doll was wearing bling bling hair-band… As for the groom, she wanted him to hold a basketball… Hmm, guess the groom loves to play basketball… The wedding theme was gold in color…

Wedding Couple for JS & SH

Their ROM (Registration of Marriage) was held on 23rd of Jan 2010 too… Their ROM’s theme was blue. SH loves to have tiara and flowers. So, I’ve decided to sew the bum at the lower left side of the hair and add little flowers there… She loves it very much…

Joel’s 1st Birthday Party

Last Saturday, 23rd of Jan, we celebrated Joel’s 1st Birthday at Goldkist Beach Resort, East Coast Park. We had invited our very close relatives and friends. My parents came all day from my hometown, Sarawak to attend this party. Coincidently my aunt and her family were here too. It has been awhile since we had such a gathering and was really fun!!

Thanks to May Ling and Jin for decorating the place for us. Honestly, the chalet was quite old and ‘run-down’ and both my DH and I were very very disappointed with the condition. But after decorating, the whole place looked quite nice… ;) But still, we are disappointed… :( It’s not worth the money we’ve paid…

Before the party, Joel went for a swim! It was his first swim.

Rei has made this wonderful cake for Joel… ;) It was yam cake and super delicious… If you look carefully, the bear is in 3D! I’m sure Rei had spend quite sometimes to ‘draw’ and ‘color’ this bear!

We were so reluctant to cut the cake. Anyway, we finished everything!! ;)

Friends and relatives that we’ve invited…

On the actual day, which is 25th of Jan, I’ve cooked Joel mee sua… Since we’re kids, we would had a bowl of mee sua on our birthday… Mee sua symbolizes longevity. I’ve cooked mee sua with a chunk of meat, carrots and potatoes. Joel loves it!

Crochet Lesson @ SCGS

Last Tuesday, I was very honored to assist Betsy to teach crochet @ SCGS (Singapore Chinese Girl School). I put Joel at my MIL’s place for 4 hours. Thank God this little rascal behaved himself and my MIL said she let him sat on the high chair for more than an hour while she’s preparing dinner, which I was very surprise cos at home, he’ll wail if I let him sit too long. To him, sitting on high chair means, ‘mum, mum’  (eating) time…. =P

Back to SCGS crochet class…

I was quite excited when Betsy asked me to assist her.  The class was quite big, around 23 students. Before the lesson, Betsy gave some explanation. This is the first time, I saw Betsy taught. She is  good & her explanation was very clear! Good mean strict too. When she’s teaching, no one supposed to do anything but listened… Hehehehe…. Wah, like back to school….

Betsy's lesson

The students were split into 3 groups. There’re 3 of us: Betsy, her mom and myself. Each of us took one group.

The students were asked to make this free-form crochet piece. At the end of the day, they were required to join all their workpiece together to make into a huge art piece…

During the lesson….

It was really a good experience for me…. Tiring but great satisfaction!

works

Conclusion: teaching crochet is never easy. For newbies, their problems always lie on the way they hold their workpiece and the way they control the stitch tension. However this group of girls is quite smart, and they can pick up very fast….

Wedding Dolls and Wedding Corsages for PJ

PJ has asked me to make a pair of wedding dolls and corsages for her wedding. She sent me a wedding photo she took at Taiwan. I LOVE her hairstyle very much.

Took me 1 1/2 hours to do the bride’s hair… YL said she looks different from the other wedding dolls. Glad PJ loves it too…

Congrats to both PJ and her husband. May God bless you with abundant happiness & joy.
