My workplace for the week at the Tan Academy

I now have a new found respect for tailors. It doesn't take long to tailor something... after going through so many agonizing years of experience. o___o I'm in day 4 of my Tan Academy's Tailoring Course, and it's pretty painful. ^^" The past few days, I keep having problems keeping the line straight and maintaining a firm hand. Yesterday, I was working on pajama pants. Finally, I was sewing one on my own, with only my teacher guiding me to make sure it's not wrong. When we were about to proceed to the last part of the sewing, she dropped the bomb.

We have been sewing the pants bottom side up, waist side bottom.

So, we had to take apart the whole thing at midnight. What I worked hours on, was taken apart in 30 minutes, and was rebuilt by my aunt in 15 minutes. o__o

My heart cried as she took it apart D:

Honestly! She works sooooo quickly, it makes me look so newb. But then again, she has been doing this for decades. I wish I could be at her level of tailoring, provided I get more experience and have a sewing machine of my own at home. Although cross stitching takes a longer time to complete, everyone can do it and it's really simple! Tailoring however, needs soooo much experience and understanding of the subject. D:


At least, today, day 4, I have completed my own pajama pants while my aunt was out dyeing her hair. :D Finally, success!!!

Tadah! And in the background, my guilty pleasure

It's simple, but it means alot to me. @_@ And now, I'm working on the second part, and it gets pretty frustrating at times... Oh well, wish me luck. Tomorrow is my last day for this course, as I'm going home on Sunday.

On a happier happier note, I had more time to watch my anime. And as of this morning, I HAVE FINISHED CODE GEASS!!! Zomg, it definitely deserved its title of best anime of the year. It's soooo twisted, and the character developement is good! It's like Death Note, being behind the mask with some super power and all, but with mecha, more character relationships, more twists, and a hawt hawt Lelouch. ALL HAIL LELOUCH!

I cried many times. And cried tons on the last episode. I'm a sensitive girl who shows her sadness, so sue meh.

Now, I shall watch Avatar. 8D *disappears*

Many Happenings, Little Writings

Alright, we all know I procrastinate tons. :D

Just a mini list on what happened since the last post till now, as I guess I won't be doing full reports on whatever I did before this, which I said I would report about. Events are in no particular order.

- My eldest brother graduated from Monash! On stage, after he got his degree, he turned to the audience and yelled "I'VE GOT THE POWER!". Seriously. :D And I made a cute lil' graduation bear for him.
- Mum's birthday!
- I was asked to teach Sunday School kids to dance for their end year concert. It's to "We're All in This Together". I got so enthusiastic, but response from the kids are a big, blank stare. D:
- Exams are on October 9, LEGASP.
- Leo Installation! I hope I didn't screw up.
- Ragnarok Online and Facebook addict, yay!
- I got my Black Belt in Taekwondo! PHEAR ME!
- I passed my grade 8 piano! MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!
- I've been reading Manga liek crazy. Finished Fruits Basket, catching Naruto, Bleach and Vampire Knight, reading Rave!

And for my Hari Raya holidays, I'm back in Malacca, alone now. I'm here to enroll in the Tan Academy Tailoring Course! 8D It's a crash course of 5 days though, teehee. It's my 3rd day today, and I'm working on pajama pants. My first project was a dress for my niece, which I've only contributed 5% as I was doing more mistakes than I was helping. 8D

Rou Ya and her new dress!

This week was actually quite a progressive week, visiting my relatives alot, playing less RO, and watching whole loads of CODE GEAAAAASS!!! I was urged to watch it after coming back from GACC(read previous post). I'm so surprised no one told me about its owhsmness before this. Well, no help from the ebil mushroom who failed to tell me anything about it. *stares* But honestly, Code Geass is EPICSAUCE. The plot twists are crazy! Watching Lelouch - who is oh so hawt - doing his evil scheming and at his weakest moments just makes me bite my fingernails. By the time I finish it, I think I'm gonna bite off my whole finger. xD

From today on, I'll try my best to actually blog more often. o___o And stop blogging liek, 3 months after something happen. xD

Poke meh to blog? 8D

Quote of the Day: Long time ago, Nunally, Suzaku, and I talked about something. We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form. If I'm not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku that said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don't usually notice it, its still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently. - Lelouch Lamperouge, Code Geass.
