Busy Bee

Gahhh.. so many things to do, so little time. But BUSY is good for my pocket! :D

Was at Suria again yesterday with my parents and sister. And Bunny too. Baby sis is going back to Kuching so we were out to get some stuff for her: pants and other daily stuff ..but she ended up buying other things instead. -_- As for me, I only bought a pastel pink nail polish and a tape (for my mini studio).  And ohhhhh... mom got me some office supplies as an early birthday gift! Ha ha ha. Ohhhh I really love those supplies. Nantilah I take pictures, coz right now, I'm just too lazy to get my camera out and take photos.

Just finished working on a Wedding Banner design, gonna get them printed later. Here's a sneak peek:

Since my baby sis is going back tomorrow, I'm thinking of taking my family for steamboat tonight. Or should I cook? But I'm too lazy lah. Going off to Karamunsing in a few hours time to get some supplies for my next project some more...

Aaaaaaaaaaa how la?! How la?! I need some time for my Farmville2 and TV Drama too! :~(

Super Sunday

Did some shopping at Suria with my Bunny today till my feet hurts.. but at least I burnt A LOT of calories. Yay! Also, I managed to finally wrap the stuff that I have been planning on sending to a dear friend of mine in Seattle, USA. lol. Been wanting to mail them to her since like 2 weeks ago, but I didn't have the time to pack and go to the post office. Sibuk bah me. Maklumlah, businesswoman.. :P

And since I am soooooooooooo tired right now, I don't think I'll be able to do some blog hopping tonight. Will do that tomorrow instead.. coz right now, my feet are killing me! :(

Blog Oh Mighty!

I think my blog has magic. A super power-like thingy that no one knows. Not even me. Because 3 days after posting about my ongoing period... it finally STOP! Yes, my period finally stopped today!!! Like, YAY! I'm not gonna die. I do not have to write my will. Best of all? I do not have to spend extra $$$ for the OBGYN!!

:D :D :D

So happy I am that I managed to finish up a design project for a client's Housewarming Party deco. Here's a sneak peek:

Again, my blog has super powers! :D

Am I going to ..... ?

I've been having my period for over 2 weeks now. (This is my first. Normally it'll be 3 days only) Am I supposed to worry?? Should I start writing down my will???

I searched for an answer from online these few days, and this is one of the many answers I found:

Every aspect of a women's cycle is sensitive to many changes from hormonal, uterine, ovarian, and blood issues. Having a long period 1 time is not really that concerning, but bleeding for more than 1 week multiple cycles requires an investigation. The bleeding you experienced is called Menorrhagia, meaning excessive menstrual bleeding at the normal time. I'll discuss some of the causes below. 1. Clotting disorders - If you have a blood clotting problem, it can manifest as heavy bleeding during your cycle. 2. Uterine fibroids - Very common benign uterine tumor. They may be removed if pregnancy is desired down the road, or removed through hysterectomy if no more children are desired. 3. Uterine polyps - These are small growths in the uterus that can bleed excessively 4. Adenomyosis - Growth of the inner lining of the uterus into the outer layer. Number one is diagnosed with simple blood tests. Numbers 2-4 can be diagnosed through imaging such as an ultrasound.

Guess I'll give it a few days more before going to the OBGYN. By the way, where's the OBGYN in KK? Never been to one...

O, the weather outside is warmer..

As much as I enjoy a warm weather, I do not particularly like it in an extreme heat. I've showered  three times today (and it's only 4:44PM). Rainy days has always been my favorite, bringing out the anticipation of a nice, relaxing sleep with the soothing sound of raindrops on the roof.

Today, I have been sitting on my work desk, working on customized design request. Particularly on a website/blog design:

Admittedly, hot weather does not help in squeezing the creative juice out of my brain. More like, they make it go blank. lol. But I have learned that we should be thankful for everything that we have. The weather might be too hot for me, but at least I have the luxury of working from home, sitting comfortably under the roof when others had to work under the hot sun...

Do you prefer the sun or rain? I particularly like the rain. Rain just makes me wanna sing!

Wake me up..!

Something weird happened this morning. (I don't know if "weird" is the word, but it's just not of the ordinary lah). I went to bed around 4:00 in the morning coz I was trying to complete a customized design for a client... and then the weird thing happened. In my sleep, a woman came and talked to me. Somewhere along the line, she told me that, "Sarah appears to be angel-like, but actually she's not." And then she spoke in Malay: "Nama saya Rara Riri. Saya dari Indonesia.. Kamu sedang tidur sekarang, tapi kamu tidak boleh bangun." (My name's Rara Riri. I'm from Indonesia.. You are sleeping right now but you can not wake up.")

And then she started chanting her name: "Rara Riri, Rara Riri, Rara Riri, Rara Riri...." over and over again. Eventually, her voice started to sound wicked. Almost devil-like. Knowing that I am in a state of dream, I tried so hard to open my eyes and wake up - but I couldn't!! Couldn't even open my eyes! Knowing that Bunny's just outside the bedroom, on his computer table, I tried to hit the bedroom wall to make a sound - and still I couldn't! God knows how angry and panic I was that I tried my whole energy to wake myself up. I'm not sure how long it took, but I finally managed to wake up. Bunny entered the room few minutes later and found me sitting on the bed.

"What's wrong??"

"I'll tell you later."

So I jumped out of the bed, took a quick shower and get ready for Sunday mass.

We were about 5 minutes late.

Anyway, that was what happened. Maybe I shouldn't sleep too late next time... but at least I managed to complete one design task. Take a peek:

If you can't tell what it is, that's a personalized wedding map. :D

Now off I go to take a shower for the 5th time today. It's so HOT in KK today, even the AC couldn't help much. Hope your weekend is not as weird as mine. ;)

Welcome, my new makeup tool

Received my parcel yesterday but totally forgotten all about it till today. Maklumlah, I've been pretty busy lately: 2 weddings, a birthday, a tea party and a blog design project to work on! But I'm not complaining at all. These are the projects that satisfy my hunger for new makeup and makeup tools. LOL

Like my new Makeup Geek stippling brush! Yay! :D

Got 'em directly from Marlena (Makeup Geek owner) all the way from USA. Well, since I have more money in PayPal than my local bank account (lol), it's only fair to shop online from overseas stores. :P

Also, I've been a fan of Marlena and her products since ...oh let me see, I can't remember! But it has been a while! Since she was a cute chubby woman to the woman she is today - lean, sexy and hot! (She's an inspiration!!)

I've tried the brush and I must say, I love it!! I'm actually thinking of getting my 2nd brush along with other newly-released products. Maybe some eyeshadows and eyeliners this time! :)

(whoaa.. how many exclamation marks "!" did I use in this post?? lol)

More pink loot! Muahahaha!

Well I must be crazy today, because:

* I just purchased a pink top off the internet

* It is 1 size smaller than my current size (to motivate my weight loss journey)

* It is quite pricey (top was not THAT pricey but the shipping is!)

But you have to understand WHY I did it..


Pretty kan??? Tiada jual di Malaysia niiiii!! (mau kasi senang hati)

And if you're wondering where I got it, sorry ar.. not gonna tell. Ha ha ha

Guess who just lost some weight?


So I woke up this morning, go pee-pee (hey, those pee-pee might add into the weight tau!) and went straight to the weighing scale, and ....wala!! I'm down 1.3kg!

A freaking total of 1.3kg!!!!

I know it's a small number for most of you, but to lose 1.3kg in a span of 6 days is awesome enough for me! So calorie counting DOES work! :D :D :D

Not gonna post a 'before' 'after' pic just yet. The weight loss was so tiny, it doesn't show yet. But I put on a jeans this afternoon (mau keluar lunch bah) and Bunny was like, "Wah, ada orang pakai jeans!" (You see, since moving back to Sabah, I've never wore any jeans because the weather was SO HOT... also, my jeans a bit sempit already la for my big thigh). But, yeah, I wore a jeans today and Bunny noticed it. I can finally fit comfortably into my old jeans!

But then... reality hit. The moment we head for the door (and out of the comfort of air-cond), the hot weather striked and I stopped walking. Instead, I head for my bedroom and changed to a mini skirt. LOL. You'd be crazy to wanna wear a jeans in KK!

Anyway, I lost weight! That's the most important thing! Ha ha!!

How to save a life

Yesterday, we found a stray puppy at the back of a restaurant where we used to go for breakfast.

As you can see, there's a large wound on the back of the leg - which appears to be a slash wound from a sharp object. Like a machete. :(

And so we kept the puppy in a box, feed and nurse the wound (using iodine and some bandage). We also puffed some Agnesia powder all over the puppy, since the wound has started to smell from the infection.

Today, we took the puppy to Sabah Animal Medical Centre (SAMC) and was told by the vet that the nerve on the leg has been severely wounded. When the vet poked the wounded leg, the puppy doesn't seem to react to it - which only proved that the leg is 'dead'.

"The leg has to be amputated..", said the vet.

I instantly reacted (trying hard not to cry) by saying, "but how will the puppy live??"

"Okay bah. Saya pun ada 2 ekor kucing berkaki 3 di rumah. Kuat melompat-lompat lagi." (Translation: "It's ok. I have 2 cats at home who has only 3 legs. They're so active and love to jump around.")

To make story short, we paid for the medical bills despite not having much money left... but if it's to save a life, we don't mind the sacrifice...

The puppy's at the vet tonight. We'll go visit him tomorrow after his surgery. I pray that he'll be ok..

In a word: Lonely

So the party's over. My brother's back to the big city. Bunny's been away for 4 days now so it's only me, and Chiko. And my family of course. It's so sweet of them to stay over and keep me company while Bunny's away, but I guess when you've gotten use to living with someone (like in this case, Bunny) and that someone is not around.. you'll miss them. Tho there are times when Bunny and I would quarrel or disagree (over small matter, most of the time) ..like that time when I got so so annoyed because we had to watch 'The Life of Pi' (when I actually wanted to watch the other movie - which I couldn't remember which. lol) I must say, it's those 'ugly' things that makes you closer to that person.

I remember the story that Bunny told me about the man who sat beside him on one of his flight to Kota Kinabalu, about a year ago. The man, a teacher, just lost his wife about a month before. This man, who's a total stranger to Bunny, mentioned that during his wife's lifetime, they often quarrel and fight over stupid things. Now that his wife's gone, it occurred to him that it was those fights that made him misses his wife the most. "Yang bergaduh-gaduh itu lah yang paling kita ingat...", was his exact words.

So I guess it's those fights and quarrels that made me think of him a lot these few days.

Anyway, Bunny's coming home tomorrow and I've already re-arranged his clothes in the closet. Tidied things up, neatly fold everything and aligned the clothes on the hangers according to size and length. Can't wait to see his surprised face tomorrow when he opens up the closet. :D

Still many hours more to go before I see him. I'm gonna do some reading before going to bed tonight. It's a book my brother accidentally left at home. Before he takes it back, I'm gonna read it up. Ha!

By the way, I changed my blog template again. Couldn't stand the natural shades of colors that I made last night. I guess, after all, I am a pastel color lover at heart and soul. Hope you like the new change!

So we partied!

My brother got engaged last weekend and the whole troop went on a road journey to Ranau - it was so much fun! We laughed, we ate, we slept, we stopped to pee like a million times (lol) and we shopped!

Here's just a few photos from that journey/celebration:

Another big celebration is coming up real soon - can't wait for it! :)
