Last Sunday, I walked/ran 10k. That was the first time in my life that I've walked that far. And boy, it was really a long walk! The run will start at 07:15am. We were there at around 6:45am and there were others who are earlier than us. We were far from the start line, see the photo below. Btw, I don't know that tall guy. He keeps on moving, this is the only time that he is not blocking my view of START :)

After this, I was busy running/walking... well, walking for the most part. Too bad I didn't have time to take photos of the surroundings.

This shot is taken on the last kilometer, almost there...

last 150m

finally, 10km run is finish!

It was truly a new experience for me... it's fun and I want to do it again... hopefully, next time I'll be able to run for the most part of the race... will keep you posted.

And now, on to my next marathon... rushing to make as many stocks as I can before Friday. I'll be going back to MAAD this coming Friday, 9th December, 5pm to 12mn.

do come by for your christmas shopping. we do customizations, just ask us :) hope to see you this Friday ;)

12.11.11 - the day after

hi there again!

yesterday (11.11.11), we were at maad. the crowd was great! have met a lot people as well. thanks for chatting with me (and buying).. it sure made my day :)

here is a photo of my suitcase. i have new shelves that i made on the spot... i feel that my old shelf is too big for the suitcase so i thought of using these shoeboxes (which I also use to store my stocks).

this is the sideview of the shelves. you can still see the labels of the shoeboxes. thanks to barefoot/terra plana for the shoe boxes :)

i'm so over happy with the shelves so here is the close-up view :)

enough of the shelves. see you on December (if I get in). happy sunday everyone and have a great week ahead.

I often hear UNO! being shouted at the office during break times. This is the favorite pasttime at my workplace, I guess this is better than chit-chatting ;) One night, after several rounds of the game, they decided to throw away some of the worn-out UNO cards. There were a lot and my heart is aching to see it go to the waste bin. To make the long story short, I mustered my courage and asked my colleagues that I want it. At first, they were shocked. Probably they're thinking that maybe I cannot afford to buy one for myself hehehe But then, I explained that I want to make something new out of it. I think they bought that explanation...

This is how it looked like.

And this is the new UNO notepad...

If you want to own one, do come down to MAAD at the Red Dot Design Museum tonight (7th Oct). We'll be there from 5pm to 12mn. This time, I will be inside the musuem. Hope to see there ;)

the after MAAD effect

It was more than a week since we participated MAAD pyjamas but I still feel the effect. I got so inspired by the people I've met, both the customers and my co-vendors. It was a totally different experience than the previous MAAD events. The crowd was awesome and the organizers did a great job. Appreciate it very much.

To start with, I didn't participate for 4 months (the last being on March). It's just that I was too busy at my day job or I lack the initiative to continue what I am doing. But everything changed after MAAD pyjamas. I got my mojo again ;)

I signed-up for the September MAAD, hopefully I get selected... and hopefully I'll be inside the museum (cross-fingers).

Also, rediscover SG covered the event. And we got tiny bit of airtime in their video hehehe click here. Our suitcase is the second to the last. Thanks rediscoverSG team.

Hello everyone!

How did you celebrate the Earth Hour yesterday? For us, we went out to watch the stars. It really helped that there were a lot of people who turned off their lights 'cause we were able to really see the stars ;) Hope everyone will really go beyond the hour...

I've been busy making friendship bracelets lately. I'm hoping I can sell all these and donate all the proceeds to the Singapore Red Cross for their relief effort on the Japan Disaster.

Here are some of it. It's red and white, to match Japan's flag.

If you're interested to purchase, please email me at I don't have any craft market scheduled this March and April so all purchases will be online.

Have a great week ahead!
