Illustration friday- packed

When we were kids, i remember grandpa used to buy me and my sister goldfishes which came packed in a round inflated plastic bag. :) We would both start picking out our favorite fish among the lot!

1st wedding anniversary :)

Today marks our 1st wedding anniversary! :)
Yes, its been exactly a year since we got hitched! hehe!

Made a stuffed heart-shaped felt cake for Mr D to mark the occasion! (hehehhe... too bad it can't be eaten)
and he in turn surprised me with some flowers :)

Made a felt kitty from one of the patterns in the aranzi book i got for my birthday.
Heheh, well, it doesn't really look like the one in the book, coz i decided to alter the pattern slightly. Still, quite pleased with how it turned out.
This is quite fun to make....more to come! :)

Illustration Friday-Island

On the world map we are not more than a dot so therefore we're considered as an island city. But I like to think that we're a rather green city, as there are lotsa plants/trees around, despite the dense urban jungle.
Not long ago, I chanced upon the International Year of the Reef 08 and another blog it was a great eye opener to learn so much more about the wild life habitats, flora and fauna which I never knew much about/existed on our island.

the big 30

Turned 30 over the weekend! (boy did it seem like those 20's passed in a flash!)Was it my imagination or did I feel a slight ache in my back?!! Hehe!:P
A big diff certainly was the number of candles on my cake compared to last year!

Oh well, what better way to celebrate being 30 than to celebrate it twice! :P

Had a little dinner party at home a day earlier on Saturday night. Also celebrated the mid autumn festival which fell on the same day. Maybe I should have had a moon cake as my birthday cake!

And a birthday lunch on the actual day with the hubby and mom at Island Cafe. It was good :) Even better was that we got a discount since it was my birthday! Heh!

got to blow out the 3 candles twice!

And of course, the best part about birthdays are the presents! (Stuff to make you feel better turning a year older :P)

A jimmyspa wallet and a houndstooth print vintage bag from the hubby!

A key pouch from mama! (high time for a new one)

Softies Kit from my sister! (yay!:D)

More craft books..these are by aranzi aronzo and a set of markers (more doodling!)from Sharon, Evelyn & Justin.

Thanks to everyone for all the gifts and well wishes!

Went to the annual computer fair, Comex and got crushed by the the crowds. Think at least half of the island flocks to this event to load up on the latest computer and electronic gadgets. Hmmm, a geeks paradise? :P
Normally, I would completely avoid this, but we were there to get a new computer but on the way out, we somehow left with an additional item... a Wii!! Whopee! (hm oooh, they rhyme! :P)

I'm not exactly a gadget kinda person, but this one, I like!
It allows me to not only play games, but now I can surf online using my TV. (oh dear, couch potato in the making??)

And of course, the first thing I had to try was to check out my blog on the telly! :P
What can I say, I'm going WHheeeeeeee on my wii! :P
