Holiday-To-Do-List and Free Calendar

This is the last post of this year. I didn't blog much on December. But I did add a couple of things on the blog if anyone noticed, like my page dividers was constantly changing each week of December. I don't really know why. I just lost interest of it, so I switch to a different one~ I also have my photobucket gallery menu on the sidebar. The jQuery frame widget below the header works fine, just the link that doesn't work..

Anyways, before the holidays began I had a list of things I wanted to get done. Unfortunately, I didn't get to do it all..

1. Watch Chuck, the entire season 2 - Yeah, I spent a lot of my holiday doing this. I love Chuck!! Its such a fun show to watch~

2. Finish Najah's pink dress - This wasn't suppose to take so long, but me and najah did a hell lot of experimenting on how we wanted the dress to be. First it was a smocked bust, frills, pockets, such and such..but in the end, just buttons and a lot of shiny sequins. The dress is two posts below..

3. Be a girl and file my nails - I suck at filing my nails. First I did it at home using Najah's nail file. But it looks crap. So, Nisaa taught me how to do my nails properly..its such a long process, I only did two of my nails and then I gave up~

4. Take .... to Old Town to watch a friend work his ass off - Hehe.. Dude, I can't even get pass the front door without my mum knowing~

5. Make a personal 2010 calendar for myself - I've downloaded dozens of scrapbooking kits over the holidays. I mixed and matched it all up and created my own 2010 calendar.

6. 10 posts for December - Nope. I lack posts this month. I'm only short on target by one post~

7. Hug Mr. PinkBear - YES. I hugged it yesterday at Nisaa's. This teddy bear has 3 names by the way, Mr. PinkBear, Mr. Pinky and MR. PLAYBOY!!

That's the last of it. Though I feel like I've missed some out. Never mind.

Finally, with the help of many commercial use scrapbooking kits, I made this for all of you.

You can put your own pictures in the frames like I did. If you don't have photoshop on your computer you can always use an online editor like pixlr. Click on the image, it will take you to 4shared where you can download the calendar if you like =)
[The real image is not blurry btw, it only looks like that on the blog]

Wish you all an awesome night. Enjoy all those movie countdowns on T.V.!!

The finished dress!

Lately, I haven't been blogging because I was super busy trying to get some things on my holiday-to-do list done. One of them is of course, Najah's pink dress that I sewed as an early birthday gift for her.

So here it is~ The completed dress. Pink!! [I'm no good at taking pictures]

She asked for the ribbon just under the bust with three hand-sewn buttons on them [click for bigger view]. She also wanted a slit at the back, makes it easier to walk in. Then, the dress looked a little plain from waist down. So we decided to sew pink and white sequins at the bottom of the dress. Originally, she wanted frills at the bottom but we were short on fabric by a few inches, so I went with a pink ribbon for the hem.

Missing tortoise, watch your step!

A great weekend in Kuantan but I can't seem to recall much. Quiet and peaceful since there was only my fam and cousins who live in Kuantan at Datuk's house when we got there. Weird though, coming to Datuk's house not seeing the boys playing their PS and making noise on the upstairs floor. Hehe..

Happy birthday, momma. I love you.

No, not today. Yesterday, 10th December = ummi's birthday!!

When I woke up yesterday morning, it was the first thing in my head and the first thing I told her.

Unfortunately, no special outings or whatever since abi is hard at work and ummi had a busy day ahaed of her, settling Najah's school applications for next year. So while she was out, me and najah decided to make her a birthday present. Its sort of kid-ish but it will be useful for her desk next year.

2010 desk calendar!! We pulled it off in just one day and I think it turned out okay. Its the thought that counts. =)

This song is a beautiful song by Taylor Swift. Y'all probably have heard it, its called 'The Best Day'. She wrote it for her mom.

I hate tuition.

I just do. I hate it. I don't really have a solid reason for that. But tonight was not enjoyable nor comfortable, even after tuition, things kept crashing and burning. If you don't like reading rants, don't bother reading this post.

Losing the Confidence.

I wouldn't classify this as a dream. It wasn't a screaming nightmare either..but I was definitely asleep......

Once upon last night's zzZZ...

I was at my grandma's in Alor Setar, it was as if it's still eidul adha and everyone was getting ready to go to kenduri. I was all ready, in my Syrian jubah, eyeliner was smoky, lipgloss was shining and ring, not forgetting my confidence ring.. I selected the ring among many rings on the dresser and just suddenly it fell to the floor and broke into two! Wait, rephrase, it fell to the CARPET and broke into two. Is that even possible??

No, it didn't break into two semi-circles. It was as if the ring had two layers, one inside the other, and the layers came apart turning it into two rings. [Do you understand that?]

Being superbly careful, I picked it off the floor[carpet], and attempt to insert one layer inside the other. The layers were extremely thin that every time I held the outer layer, the heart-shaped carving was slowly smoothing and disappearing. Like play-doh.

Inserting...inserting...and SNAP! Yes, I finally broke it into FOUR semi-circles. Oh, just brilliant~ AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!! I BROKE MY CONFIDENCE RING!!!

"Bangun!! Bangun!! Raihan! Najihah! Tidur lagi!! Bangun!!", Ummi's voice was ringing in my ears.

I got out of bed and rummaged through my cupboard for the ring. I couldn't find it. Staying calm, I went to the shower where I would usually leave it. There it is. Next to my toothbursh. In one piece. I put it on and told myself never to drop it again. Especially on carpets.

Jump Then Fall - Taylor Swift

Its not entirely new, but I'm loving it and repeating it every time I'm online and every time I turn on Flamingo (mp4).

The song is fifth on the jukebox..

Btw, new picz in the older memories folder~ Found them in Ummi's room. A piece of, hilarious/cute/stupid, history..hehe..

Your Call

Night blogging and flash-backing..

I just bought some new earplugs at Reko's Hardnet store earlier to replace my old wrecked ones and I was so glad that I can finally start listening to music on my flamingo-ized [bedazzled] mp4 again. Since I haven't been listening to it for a while, I've almost forgotten what songs I have in them.. So..listening..listening..and then I came across this song. Its not a new song but it brings back memories..

I was searching for songs to download off the net for my mp4 a couple of months back, at the same time texting with a friend who I nicknamed Kitkat. Kitkat suggested many songs that I turned down until finally Kitkat told me to listen to "Your Call" by Secondhand Serenade.. I spared my ears to listen, just because Kitkat made me do so and I loved it. Of course, Kitkat was tryna get a message to me through the song. I was trying to deny that at the time. Unfortunately, a while after that, something tored us apart.

Ever since the incident, I still kept hoping that Kitkat would just text me again, maybe just to say "hi, how ya doin??" or "it's been a while".. or something..but, no..

Some time after that, another friend told me that Kitkat has been trying to text me but it didn't reach.. Then, I realized, oh yeah~ I never told Kitkat about my new number when I changed it. Haha. Never mind. Lets leave it that way.....

~Maybe you'll call me someday..
Hear the operator say the number's no good..
And that she had a world of chances for you,
She had a world of chances for you,
She had a world of chances,
Chances you were burning through
You've got a face for a smile you know~
~Demi Lovato~
