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~~

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.

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. =)

Monday is always blue, but we will have to change our mindset and do something interesting to eliminate negative energy. Happy Monday~~

DIY Your Own Natural Moisturizer

안녕하세요

I start practising my Love Rules resolutions. Yesterday night myself and my husband try out something interesting. Remember I was telling you we are planning to have our small business? It will be related to Essential Oil.

Yup, I just started using doTERRA essential oil a few months back and I start to fall in love with essential oil. The best part of it is I can use it without worrying that it will be harmful to my family as this oil is natural where you can be used aromatically, topically and the best part is you can even drink or add into our cooking.

Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 3.36.03 PM

Yesterday we tried to make our own moisturizer using lavender essential oil. We got the ingredients from doTERRA blog. Very easy and very convenient. The ingredients that you need are:

⅓ cup aloe vera gel (do not use juice or aloe from a plant as the cream won’t whip properly)
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
½ tablespoon beeswax
10 drops Lavender oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, gently heat the almond and jojoba oils with the beeswax. 
  2. Once melted, transfer your mixture to a deep mixing bowl. Leave to cool for an hour or until the mixture reaches room temperature.
  3. Slowly add the aloe vera gel and Lavender oil as you blend the mixture with a hand blender.
  4. Continue adding aloe until you have reached your desired consistency.
  5. Store in an airtight container and apply to skin liberally.

The below is the final outcome before we mix the essential oil and aloe vera. Forgive us for the colour of the image because we did it at night and the lighting is warm white at our home =)

Somebody is enjoying mixing the Lavender oil and Aloe Vero into the moisturizer.

I normally use doTERRA Fractionated Coconut oil and 2 drops of Lavender oil on my dry skin. Sometimes I find it quite troublesome when travelling because bringing the Fractionated Coconut oil around. Moreover, I am worried that the coconut oil will spill and leave a stain on my bags which it already happens on my Longchamp =(

With this, DIY moisturizer, Is so easy and handy now because I fill them in a 15ml size bottle which is my previous eye cream bottle and I do not have to worried about coconut oil spilt in my bag now. Yea…..

We have opened a Facebook page name “doTERRA Wellness Natural Essential Oil” just to share the products we are selling and also information that we collected. Do like our page for more information.

감사합니다

Love Rules !

안녕하세요

The 1st week of January 2018 has ended and today start the second week of the January. On Saturday the whole day, I was having company conference event to kick-start the year 2018. This year, our company will be focusing more on innovation and customer relationship. Is a full day conference from 8.00am to 8.00pm. Too many information flowing and I am trying to absorb all. After the 4th speaker, I started to lost concentration and there is where my old habit, taking photos. Took a picture of my Benjamin and Microsoft Cloud plushie. This is to avoid I fall asleep. Just wanted to share the image because is cute =)

 img_3312

In the year 2018, I will want to focus more on healthy living and healthy relationship. Today, I was reading an article from Health & Nutrition magazine, January 2018. They are discussing Love Rules Resolutions as listed below. I take this chance to review the Love Rules Resolutions for myself.

1. Spend More Time Actually Being Together

-Put all your digital accessories aside and really spend time together, talk to each other and have some little love chat. I think we have not been doing this well as we both are always in our digital life.

2. Be In The Moment

– When we are together, we always got this little problem where we are worried about future. He is planning for his own small business plan and normally there will be a concern about our future planning where it will result in a little de-motivation mood. I will always encourage him not to have negative thought because it will stop him from moving to a bigger plan. I will prefer we enjoy whatever we have at this moment because time flies, we will never go back the same day as today.

3. Kick Off An Aventure, TOGETHER

– This is the resolution that I really wanted to start this year because we both hardly go out together and we hardly sign up for any adventurous activity. The problem with both of us is that we do not like noisy and crowded places. That is why we will always end up staying at home. We really need to start doing something new every month.

4. Turn Arguments Into Conversation Rather Than Competitions

– That is why many couples will end with break-up /divorced if is long term because of Ego, both wanted to be the winner. For this, I think we both are doing well, normally I will try to walk away first when the “pot” is still hot, once the “pot” has cool down, we will discuss the matters that arise that also lead to arguments.

5. Quit The Blame Game

– Yes. I am taking this resolution very seriously now. I have been with my husband for 11 years before I decided to marry him. Of course, along with the journey, I did try to change him and sometimes, I do blame him for not being caring and detail. Now, after I get myself involve with Master Sun, The Superlife Secret Codes, I learn to say the word “I” instead of “You”. I still learning and trying to change my mindset and my approach. Still trying hard and I hope things will change later future.

6. Think Positive

– Every time when things do not go the way I wanted, I will sometimes get frustrated and end up I will be absorbing negative energy. Most of the time it will also be ended up with arguments and we both will asleep in an angry mood. So for this resolution, we are trying very hard now.

7. Make A Compromise

– Compromising! The most challenging resolution for partners because we all wanted things to be in our own way. Again, I still trying very hard. Like what Master Sun always say, before you want your partner to change, we have to look back on ourself first. Change our bad habit first and subsequently your partner will follow to suit you as well.

8. Keep The Third Party Out

 – This resolution I think I am doing quite well. Both our parents respect our privacy and they will not interfere in our personal lives. Thanks to our lovely parents, that is why we can be together for 11 years and more years to come.

9. Make Time For Sex

– Alright, this resolution. I can only say, Yes, we will improve it and make time for this. As usual, busy life, with tired work task and end up not in the mood. Sometimes, we do have this problem.

So, out of 9, I think I am only good at resolution 4. The other 8 resolutions, I guess I will still need to improve and adapt the habit into my daily life in order to have a happy relationship with my husband because we still have a long way to go. Maybe I should set a dateline to review myself again =)

New Year Resolutions

안녕하세요

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! My 1st artwork for the year 2018.

By the time the event end it was about 3.00am in the morning. Is our 27th year of annual dinner. I woke up around 9.30am, went over to my parent’s house to have breakfast with them thereafter, I went back home and fall asleep again. Woke up at around 8.30pm.

Today is 2nd day of New Year and is going to be another good day. I tell myself in the Year 2018, I will make sure I have very positive thinking and never be negative about my life. Never give excuses and never run away from the problem. Run out from SILO habit and read more. Never be influenced by the negative energy and avoid negative people.

img_3174

I want to create more adventurous memories together with my loved one. I want to grow together with him, I want to have a simple and happy life with him. We both are trying to adopt new positive lifestyle and may the year 2018 we will be able to create more positive memories. May the year 2018 be a wonderful and good year for us.

Happy Deepavali

안녕하세요

Today is a public holiday and I will like to take this chance to wish all my Indian friends, Happy Deepavali and to others Happy Holiday.

Deepavali is a festival of colours and I take this chance to illustrate the colourful artwork. My blog is about how I go thru my colourful life. I still searching for my colourful soul and hoping I will find it one day.  Today the whole day I was taking a long rest after breakfast because I haven’t been having a good sleep for quite some time. I thank you god for giving me this rest time, provide me with a good place to rest and meditate.

Thank You, God.

My Pre-Wedding Photo Shooting (#Throwback)

안녕하세요 (#throwbackblog)

I just completed my pre-wedding photography last Wednesday. Is a tiring but also a fun day. One day before the photo shooting, while waiting for my fiance to finish work, I drop by Centrepoint. We were supposed to drop by the Bridal house to collect the gown and suit for next day photo shooting. I passed by the florist shop and I thought I can just buy one bouquet for my photo shooting as one of the props.

I don’t know how to buy a bouquet actually. So from the brochure, I have chosen the daisy. I love daisy. However, because I have chosen a cheaper price bouquet is quite small. The bouquet cost RM55.00. Guess I need to study the market price before ordering. Is a bit small but still can use.

My Daisy

 

We have cute and funny experience during the photo shooting. As we have been together for about 10 years, so we are not used to being a sweet couple with some sweet actions and poses. 😂 When we were told to look at each other eyes, we feel awkward and we will continue laughing nonstop. Photographer and videographer have to guide us step by step in terms of posing and the feelings of each other.

So, we went to 3 places to do the photo shooting. The first place is at FRIM Kepong Botanic Garden. First time there of course and I am in love with the environment. I guess a lot of couples shoot there because they even have “Pas Pengantin” which is Bridal Pass.

Bridal Pass

 

To enter we have to pay RM112.35. I am not too sure the price we paid is for two cars to enter or only one car because our photographer did not pay for the entry. So I assume the price we have paid is for two cars. Please remember to get the receipt and if the counter

Here I will want to remind you all to always remember to get the receipt and if the counter person in charge has told you that is alright, they will send later please insists on waiting till you received the receipt because you will not be able to enter the garden without the receipt. Our photographer will have to drive back to the registration counter to collect the receipt. Is quite a distance actually. Is very bad for the counter person in charge to do that.

We were lucky that the small hiccups did not ruin our day. When we arrived, the sky and environment are nice even though is very hot and I have to face the sun directly. My fiance took the opportunity to captures some photo of me posing alone. I am not used to it because I don’t really like to take a photo of myself. So I have difficulty in posing and smiling in front of camera (=.=)”

Looking at the Lake

 

Enjoying The Lake View

 

The second photo shooting place is Putrajaya, Taman Saujana Hijau. That park is a public park. So that is why you see a few couples taking the pre-wedding photo. We were rushing for time, that is why we did not take a picture when we were there with our own camera. Have to wait for the photographer final outcome to see how it looks like.

The last location for our pre-wedding shooting was at LIMA PULO. Is a well known Baba Nyonya cuisine restaurant. The restaurant is always crowded. We went there the first time and we did not manage to try out their food because the restaurant is full and the last order is at 2.45pm. This time round we thought we can have lunch there as we have booked the venue from 3.00pm – 5.00pm for photo shooting. As we are running late, we only manage to reached the restaurant at 3.00pm. So we did not manage to try out their food again. The owner is so kind and friendly. Hope we can see him again next round when we have lunch or dinner there cause did not manage to really have a chat with him.

I need to wait for a few months to see the outcome. Can’t wait to see those photo.

My First Artwork

안녕하새요 제 이름은 안금패

I am not a creative person, I am also not an art person but I like art. I always very curious how all the art pieces being created. I am very impressed with people who can produce beautiful art.

So, I took a step ahead to take part time course to learn Illustrator. I couldn’t use hand to draw, so I use the system to draw an art.

Today I try to use illustrator to come out with bubble effect artwork. Not perfect, but I am happy for a start. I will never give up my Illustrator skill and also my Korean Language. So my first Artwork with my Korean Name.

Korean Name_V1__Artboard 2

Nothing is easy, as long as I stick with my objectives, I believe I will be able to do it.
