Been cleaning my room, and clearing away clutter and organising stuffs and re-cleaning again and painting my door and re-cleaning again till I'm satisfied. Apparently, there is just soo much to do to prepare the Lunar New Year! I don't remember that happening last year because i did not touch any of my scrapbook stuffs due to piling school work. The only thing i did was stuffing in all my notes into the cupboard, away from cleanliness-conscious eyes, and it did look clean that time, but this year it was done more thoroughly and with hard work. I even bought some new stuffs to organise my scrapbook stuffs!
animated origami
Here's something I had no time to present to you guys until now: A really challenging origami that is made up of 12 pieces! I think its called modular origami, and its fantastic! You can push the centre of the origami to reveal a new pattern and be "pushed" again and again. I'm not very good at explaining how it works but you can see the photo animation i made above and you'll know what i mean! A very special thanks to a very inspiring and good-instructions-follower ex-teacher who never gives up in this kind of fun challenge! It took us around 2 hours to finally get the hold of piecing it together, after that, I could even remember the steps! That's why i did this one in colour paper so it could be seen clearly!
I have more to posts about this exciting new year which the fun together with such a Huge family never stops. (on the first day of new year, I already visited 8 houses! no kidding!)
I wish everyone a very happy and prosperous year in the year of the Ox!

The trip to getting around Singapore was fun. Initially, Xuyun had planned a whole lot of route on Google Maps and show me loads of alternative routes around Singapore. But, we had a big gap in the viewpoint of cycling as he wanted a more fast on-the-road kind and i definitely prefer the safe-old foot/cycle paths.
He changed his mind and worked out a different route and came out with a "challenge" for himself. Cycle on a unicycle the whole way. A crazy idea but it was interesting to see many heads turn around when we cycle and questions were asked when we stopped. The unicycle have me going nuts whenever he falls and tries to mount as a loud crash could be heard and a huge relief to see him unscratched.

We had loads to see as we were using the park connector which started from my estate and I never ever knew it existed! But its never too late to explore Singapore. An account of Xuyun i took from facebook: "haha oh we just followed the park connector from bishan to kallang, then kallang, anyhow whack. use iPod's maps function to find our way there. End up there, then turn back. Had dinner at Carl's Junior then went back. FUN!!!"

I totally agreed with him! It was totally FUN!! The one thing i need to thank is the power of the itouch! sad that it didn't have a built in compass. Although, the park connector (PCN) is swift easy and fun to travel in, the steps sometimes requires you to travel by carrying your bike. (not good at all) All overhead bridge had a side slope (see the left picture) to assist you in moving your bike up or down, however, there one bridge without that so i had to carry it. But overall, it was fun, even meet with angie, eio and shawn at east coast park. (ECP) Hoping for more trips like this!

Scrapbook Mojo.

Created a nice accordian album for my 2 friends where one of them had a recent birthday celebration. its been super duper long since my last scrapbook attempt (that is, my christmas cards) and I just can't get the energy and spirit started. So this album pretty much got me happy and going. But still, other things needs to be done.

My first time doing an accordian album really, cause i never had the chance to actually do one for myself.

Took me the whole afternoon to make it actually and i had to rush and be half an hour late for the celebration, but still it was totally worth it! I'm glad she totally liked it and some wanted to call me to make one, but i just don't know i can do this good. this make me think of selling cards. Love making them... hmmm... who will buy from me?

Hidden photo slot and flip up was one of the ways to make it better.
Hoping to make more scrapbook layouts and projects soon. I have loads and loads of stuffs to post online. Till then!

this side up.

I thought this would take after 2009 to recieve but instead it came on the last few days of 2008. Totally anxious to see how this thing costs so much for a book. By far, the most expensive book i have ever ever bought. And it was better than expected to have so great packaging and embellishments. I must say that my favourite author did a great job!
I am still reading more books and lazing around the house without a job. Sigh, frictional unemployment.

new upgrades to paige a.k.a my camera!

Went to Funan I.T mall to look at some stuffs for my camera and a new computer headphones (equipped with a mircophone!) I eventually bought 2 new stuffs: A new polarising filter and a camera romote control which would defintely improve my photo taking skills. You can see how helpful the filter is on helping to reduce the reflected light or increase the intensity of the blues! (these 4 photos aren't edited.)

Who knew remote control can be so fun?
1. I was trying on the camera remote control when my brother walks past.
2. I demostrate the use of it.
3. he looks at the little plastic thingy while i told him that it can let you shoot as far as 5 metres.
4. he starts trying on it.
5. he attempts to shoot at a higher angle
6. he proving that the statement for the product is true.
7,8,9. He sees how far can he go using the remote.

Hold on, 2008!

Loads of things happening around me, but nothing particularly interesting or exciting. it just kept me busy and allow me to pass the time faster, though most are not important. And now, a whole new year is ahead of me. I have loads to post as photos are taken and stories to tell. But, i don't know why i am putting this at the back of my to-do list and it has dragged on to 2009. Do wait while i continue to sort out my schedule and start posting important and funny tales i have on my head.
P.S: i am still jobless! :(
