Yesterday, i went to Harajuku. Part of must to do list in Tokyo. The epicenter of Harajuku fashion that hit globally sometime ago. It is a vibrant place with cool people expressing their individual creatively. Partly comical and beyond our imagination. Then, i tasted their crepe, banana chocolates. It is so soft and lots of cream.

So i did some pampering to ease the stress. I went for facial at estee in Isetan, KLCC. Samantha, my beautician, she's very good and always had a good conversation with her. Then, i bought voucher for hot stone treatment at Kanebo for only RM58. Good deal.
Then, i went for hair treatment at a new place in UOA Bangsar, The Cut. The salon is near to LRT Bangsar. Nice place and the price is also very attractive. I'm considering to change my stylist.

Dear friends, thank you for your encouragement and kind words.
I had great time there, meeting new crafter friends. They are all very supportive of each others. Really good crowd and great event. I sold 3 pairs of earrings, i'm so happy and not bad for a newbie like me.

This website is a great source for beautiful pattern especially knitting and crochet. They have thousands of free patterns and this is such an inspiration to me. I love their flower motifs and amigurumi. I subscribed to their e-newsletters, became a fan in facebook and visited their blog regularly.
They have combined both of my favourite things, charity and craft with their 'Charity Knit & Crochet-Along'. I've followed their footstep and doing it locally with my bff, Betty. Right now we're crocheting caps/hats for orphan and cancer kids.

I just can't understand why did Kanye West did such things to Taylor Swift and stolen her most important moment at VMA. What West needs is a good spanking. My heart goes to Swift and in total support of her. She deserves the Best Female Video. I love 'You Belong With Me' video. Simple and yet you feel like watching a whole movie. Any girls could relate to that story and its reminded you of your school sweetheart.

Then we went for our dinner to Tupai-Tupai Restaurant. The place was really packed. The food is really good and not too expensive. All bright and happy shiny people there.
After a really good day, now i crocheted a little flower and had some tatting design in my mind.

It was such a beautiful Sunday morning in August, my dearest was laid to rest. Sunday is his favourite day. The day where he went to Sunday Market wearing his best 'baju batik' and buying all our favourite foods. Seeing his final moment was just so heartbreaking.
The most handsome, gentleman and funniest guy in my life. No more jokes and stories of 'orang kampung'. No one to to remind me to eat oranges. When i've problem in my relationship, he was the one to cheer me up. No one to treat me the best 'Nasi Beriani' in Temerloh.
Life will never be the same without him

I'm so into tatting now. I learnt tatting from an old needlework book. I tatted since high school for my crochet trimming and lace.
Now i'm designing for earrings. The sketch in the photo is slightly different from the piece.

'People were happiest when they were just talking to one another, when they gardened, knitted, or were involved in a hobby; all of these activities require few material resources, but they demand a relatively high investment in psychic energy.'
an excerpt from 'Flow - The Psychology of Optimal Experience' by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

Front, 3 types of stitches, namely rib stitch, honeycomb (cable pattern), braided (cable pattern) and garter stitch in between the cable patterns.
Rib stitch is just a simple stitch for waistband by working knit then purl alternately in one row. then on the next row, work in purl or knit as they come. It gives elasticity to the patterns.
Cable stitches is usually work with more than 3 needles. Unfortunately, i don't keep the original pattern of the cable stitches. But i've found honeycomb pattern in lion yarn brand website. I love their website and patterns. If you want the detail of the honeycomb pattern just drop me an email.
I chose garter stitch in between the cable patterns was to make cable pattern stands out. This is worked by making every row in purl.
