Ten thankful things

you, for being such wonderful readers.
For not forgetting this little humble blog of mine though I was MIA for a month!

this supportive and inspiring network that allows me to anchor my life upon.

every single sweet comment, email or facebook msg that shows you care.
Believe it when I say I drop everything possible to reply you.

having these wonderful friends who fill my life with laughter

having her for the whole World cup month
along with these girls and muscular boy to take care of us throughout the nights!

for the shoes which kept me awake every World cup night.

the photography class I attended, which is really eye-opening!
I'm the awkward-looking bespectacled forlorn-looking girl smacked right in the middle of nowhere!

for having these pretty cousins to perk up my life!
Ebell, 12
Kang Ling, 15
Wei Ling, 30s

this room that I can't live without
Messy but I love!

this man who loves me unconditionally, not.
He wants me to love him back. lol

a faithful God who loves me unconditionally.
It's a shame when people like us 'love' Him conditionally.

We may not understand God's plans for us but we have to trust His will. That we will only get stronger. Hold on for God's with us.

This song hit me real hard and if you're a believer, it should hit you too.
God doesn't give you everything you want because you're way beneath Him and his wisdom.
He knows what's best, he always does.

PS: I'm gonna do this on a regular basis too!
We should always be thankful for everything that happens in our life, shouldn't we?

This awful feeling

I need some adjustment time to get back to blogging.
Just so awful coming back to this dilapidated blog and seeing that it isn't active.

I've more than a hundred projects to post, more than a thousand ideas to share but I just lack the motivation to do it, especially after such a long haitus.
Do you get days like this?

Sigh... World cup really takes the life out of me.
I've been trying hard to revert back to the healthy biological clock whereby I get up in the morning and sleep before midnight.
Nothing is more difficult for a night owl like me. :(

So anyway, I'm thinking of having those 'Scrappy Sundays' kind of routine so that I blog regularly.
Just to get me back into scrapping (I've forsaken my scrap supplies for more than a month and they're calling out to me) and inhabiting this space before rust and dust reside.

Just want to know if this is a good idea, I'll really be glad if I get some constructive responses from the lovely people reading this! :)

On another note, I'm terribly sorry about forgetting to wish my blog a happy 2nd year blog-anniversary!
I've long prepared some mini-giveaways some time back in May.
Leave some blog love in the comments section for a chance to win one of these.

Some of my favourite craft supplies..
Handmade and handpicked by me!
Just to thank you for popping by often! :)

Have a good day and make a card for someone special today.

Vintage roses paper and brown ledger paper from Making Memories, Blue floral paper from Melissa Frances, Frame chipboard from Tattered Angels, Sentiment, border and button images stamped from Crafty Secrets, Hand-scrunched seam bindings available in my etsy shop soon, rose from Prima Marketing, cardstock from American Crafts

I just realized I've not updated for more than a month!
Sorry if you've been lurking around for updates, I'm just mad busy!
I've been surviving only 4 hours of sleep each day for the past month working at RWS for the world cup event after teaching in the day.

Fell sick periodically throughout the month but still managed to survive!
Praise the lord for strength! :)

The strength He gave me is amazing, really!

So, this is what happened in June...

Organized our 3rd Young Scientist's Day!
Without fail, June is the month for all my students to present their little demonstrations or experiments.
Beaming with pride as I type this away..
Guess what we're waiting for?
A little parachute display by Emillime!
Rachel performing her very first demonstration in front of a crowd.
She did stunningly well and came up 2nd!

Kudos to the amateurs for being so brave to present in front of a crowd of more than 30 parents and fellow tuition mates.
Amazing what these little gems can come up with, isn't it?

Some are polished gems after years of training.
Shannon's run for the 3rd year. No hiccups this time!
Can't believe I've taught her for 4 years!
Our mini tea-break filled with yummy homemade food.
All credits to my aunt's trusty helper, Siti! Thanks a million!
Lim Jing's lovely mum giving her moral support at the peripheral.
We have really supportive parents who made tremendous effort to be present for their children. This meant so much to the kids and me!
Makes me reminisce of the times Daddy came for my prize-giving ceremonies, musical concerts and graduations. Some parents may think it doesn't matter but I tell you, it matters.
Matters the world to a child because parents are the centre of his or her life in childhood.
And WE remember.
We remember every single thing our parents do for us, and NOT do for us.
Sigh, I can foresee the impending doom of entering parenthood in a couple of years. LOL
Anyway back to the photos..

These photos are just a fraction of what had been taken.
Sorry for eye-soring you!

It all ended up in a fight.

Nah.. It's just Yuen Zhi demonstrating Center of Gravity. How fun!
He actually suggested for me to slam him down too!
If I wasn't wearing a skirt, I would!
That's me presenting the prize to Lim Jing who did a fabulous job! :)

A pretty long post, isn't it?
Thanks for being with me after a long hiatus! :)
Take care and God bless! :)
