안녕하세요

Today is our 3rd-month being husband & wife. Time flies, still remember how we rush for our preparation and all the last minute changes and arrangement. It was a nice memory and this memory will remain in our lives forever.

Learning Art and Craft – Making My Own Jewellery

안녕하세요

I always very jealous of people who can come out with art & craft masterpiece so easily. I like art & craft but I have been keeping on telling myself that I am not good at it and I do not have the talent at it. After years and years of telling myself that I am not good at art & craft, I realise, this is a bad habit and I am absorbing negative energy into my body.

When I am telling myself I am not good, I actually have shut my heart that I am not good, but after I learn Super Life Secret Code, I just notice that if I do not try it, how would I know that I am not good. Complaining will not lead me to anywhere.

There is where I decided to take up some art & craft classes. Last year, I went and studied Graphic design at IACT College. I love it. I start learning how to use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Is interesting but I need more practice. This year, I decided to explore on accessories. As my husband is growing his essential oil business so I decided to learn some DIY accessories to tie up with his business.

So I found Elegant Jewellery Studio on Facebook. They do sell jewellery as well at the same time, they are passionate to teach people who are interested in exploring on jewellery to be part of their hobby or as an additional income. To me, I join because I wanted to find my passion at the same time, I want to see what I can assist in helping my husband.

Elegant Jewellery Studio is inside Shangri-La Hotel shop lot,  1st floor. Honestly, I did not know that hotel has such thing. As I am not familiar with the place, so I took a Grab service from Jalan U-Thant. I only need to pay RM7.00. Easier and convenient as parking is an issue there unless you part at Hap Seng, all day RM4.00 on weekend it seems.

I start with basic classes. This basic class of 3 hours cost RM198.00. In the basic class, I learn how to do a necklace, bracelets and a pair of earrings. Tadaa~~~ It looks simple, but it took me 3 hours to complete this set of accessories. Maybe because I am not familiar, that is why I will need more practice. Practice makes perfect.

I bought the whole set of tools that needed to do own jewellery. These whole sets cost me RM299.00. They come with pliers but I told them I already have one set at home, I do not need the pliers, so they exchange the pliers with a pair of diamond earrings hook. Is interesting. I do not mind explore more.

I am taking all these changes very seriously now because I do not want to live sadly with full of complaining about my life. Is draining up my energy. Life can be colourful and interesting if I following the right path. Let’s enjoy our life~~

안녕하세요

While searching for my soul, I decided to pick up my beloved camera Sony A5100 to participate in the weekly photo challenge. This week challenge is Silence. Just is so match for my weekend feeling.

I want to appreciate my life by spreading more positive energy to the world. That is the right way to give back to the world.

 

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner

안녕하세요

Today is my TGIS feeling. Of course, I stole some of my working time to update my diary because I accidentally saw this video clip and it hit my heart. The title of the video is called “Reunion Gift” directed by James Lee. Is a very short 7 minutes video, but it touches everybody hearts who love their family.

Is show off my feeling too. Is always a Chinese tradition to have a reunion dinner on the Chinese New Year Eve. But, once the daughter of a family grows up and married, eventually, she will not be able to join the reunion dinner with her family anymore as she will have to join the reunion dinner with her husband family. That is always one of the reasons why I did not want to get married earlier. I am a family person, I never leave my family for more than 2 weeks. If I do, is either I travelling with my partner or I have conventions to attend. This year, it will be different.

However, I am a lucky woman. I have a very understanding father in law and mother in law. Every year, our reunion is in the morning session and theirs is in the night session. So my partner or I should say my husband now, will join my family reunion “breakfast” and I will join his family reunion dinner. Even though I am married, my mother in law told me we will still remain with the same plan. I still can have reunion “breakfast” with my family and we will go back to join the reunion dinner for my husband side.

I thank god for loving me, granted me a wonderful in-law family. They gave me lots of love and care during my stay. My mother in law knows my dad miss me very much, she always tell me if I wanted to go back, just let her know she will arrange her own plan with my father in law. I feel so touch. I appreciate her understanding and for my side, for return, I make sure I respect them. I might not be able to cook a nice dishes for them (as for now =.=) but I make sure I gave them full respect. They will not have a rude daughter in law.

One more month and Chinese New Year will arrive. Hope that those we working at another state, remember to go back for reunion dinner. Appreciate the moment when your parents are still around. Do not live with regrets.

Lavender & Tea Tree Moisturizer

안녕하세요

17 days in the year 2018 has gone and I have been continuing reviewing myself by note down at my Kittypiggy Colourful Life blog. As I am not an adventurous person, it will end up my life is too simple that people will always tell me that my life is very boring.

So I am trying to make a change. In the year of 2018, I want to be more adventurous and try new things. I never had any interest with anything except watching YouTube, reading a novel, listening to music and most important sleep. In the year of 2018, I have found a new interest which is DIY own healthy products. Firstly, I save a lot of money because healthy products are expensive. With some good brands, it will cost me a boom. Secondly, by doing my own products, I able to control the scent that I prefer. Third, life is short, I am enjoying myself with the DIY products.

A few days ago, my husband has tried up again to DIY own moisturizer. This time around, we put few 5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and 5 drops of Tea Tree Moisturizer.

Why we use Lavender and Tea Tree?

First of all, Lavender scent able to make you more relaxing and calm. Not only that, it can be used for healing purpose too.  There are few benefits of Lavender essential oil as explain in Alternative Day website.

  1. For acne
    • Lavender oil able to penetrate pores to kill bacteria.
  2. For skin lightening 
    • Lavender oil is anti-inflammatory. It helps to reduce redness of the skin and help to restore bright and natural skin tone. When is been used regularly, it may help to reduce dark age spot and other skin discolouration.
  3. For anti-wrinkle
    • Due to Lavender oil is rich in antioxidants, it will be able to protect your skin from damaging free radicals which contributed to your fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. For eczema and psoriasis
    • Lavender oil may help to reduce the itch and irritation caused by psoriasis and it may help with eczema outbreaks.
  5. For sunburn
    • Lavender oil may help to relieve the burning and swelling.
  6. For skin fungus
    • Lavender oil able to kill fungus infection and irritation on the skin.

As for Tea Tree essential oil, we added it in because it has similar benefit as Lavender. So by adding in into our DIY moisturizer, we have a wonderful scent with double benefits from these 2 oils. The moisturizer can be used as a balm ointment as well. I bring the moisturizer around now. Safe me a lot of money on buying expensive hand cream with limited benefit.

I am learning to love myself now. Life is full of colourful scene, be more positive and be happy.

Simple Dinner For Him

안녕하세요

Today while waiting for my husband to come back, I suddenly feel like eating pickles lettuce. This is where you will miss your mom’s homecooked food. Then my husband called me and informed me that he will be late because he stuck in a very heavy traffic jam. So while waiting, I decided to try to cook the pickles lettuce.

I try to recall the way my mom cooked. I remember she put garlic and meat and a bottle of pickles lettuce and just boil until it is ready to serve. So I was just trying my luck. I was thinking that worst case is I have to throw away the meat and the pickles lettuce.

Surprisingly I do not have to waste the meat and the pickles lettuce. Turn up the pickles lettuce meat stew taste good. My husband loved it. =)
