Not forgetting the wonderful tour people, Iris, Lynn, Rachel , Tommy and his wife, auntie Red lip Gull and Friend and also the tour guides in Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Shangri-la that made the trip wonderful... Ok ok this is sounding like an academy awards thank you speech ...

WOOOHOOO ... I am pumped to create now .. but first , luggage to unpack, clothes to wash and LOTS OF STUFF to put away ... geesh ..

Has it been a week ???

Ago that I was in Hong Kong ??? Waiting to see if the typhoon was gonna hit Hong Kong ? Gosh, 7 days ago I was in bed watching TV in Yau Ma Tei and today I am blogging about it .. how time flies .. Okay .. This post is actually my Shopping post .. hahaha .. Yes .. I have to blog about this trip and the MAD shopping that was actually done in Hong Kong ...

First Up ... This Set of HELLO KITTY Plush toys that was launched on the 2nd of July this year, a partner of Mcdonalds Hong Kong and Kitty Lab ... I fell in love with this set and after panic calling Ada in Hong Kong, I managed to score a set of this adorable kitty .. YAY!!!!! LOVE U ADA .. Thanks for dragging the set all over Hong Kong for me .. hehehe

Next up is the photo of my Kitty Buys in Hong Kong, Basically bought from Sanrio, the $10 shop below the Guest House, Relay Bookstore and also H&M ... basically bags and more bags ...

And my BOUNTY of Hello Kitty Bake and Cookware from Cake DIY in Fo Tan, It was an adventure as I have not ventured out of the main shopping belt of Hong Kong and this time, I had to take the MTR, and then the KTR(which is the rail System) and also a mini bus to get to this industrial area of Fo Tan to get to the store, which is basically a wholesaler of Kitty Stuff ... here is my LOOT .. haha ... yes I have grand plans of making Kitty Bentos .. but .. erm erm ... we'll see ...

And of course here is my loot for my SB hobby .. Managed to source for a store in Central that sells rubber stamps and of course since their prices are about 30 - 40% cheaper than in Singapore, I had to buy some ... and I HAD HAD HAD to visit LOG-ON which is part of the city super chain of stores and they had really nice stuff .. got me some journal books and the Travel and Post Stamps .. and of course the MT tapes which I had been lusting over since I saw Patrick Ng's Blog .... I of course needed ... TOO MUCH .. hahahahah

So there you have it .. my loot from Hong Kong, of course there are more stuff ... got myself a fie fie Lepin Bag and also 2 pairs of shoes, and of course since Uniqlo was on sale ... 5 Tee- Shirts ... but they are not as interesting as the pink stuff abv .. hahaha ..

till the next post .. enjoy the weekend !!!!

Monday, July 20, 2009

Touched down in HKG on Friday and was told that a typhoon was heading our way... and on saturday .. it was raining and by abt 3pm .. typhoon signal no 3 was hoisted ... geez... and of course .. me and A hung out as late as possible and I was back at the hotel by abt 9ish .. cause the typhoon was gonna hit and signal 8 would be hoisted at abt 11pm .. .. Woke up on Sunday .. and saw the news and apparently Signal 9 was hoisted that night .. I was happy .. cause by the time I woke up .. it was downgraded to a no 3 typhoon .. which means ..

Phew !!!

I just got my travel plans settled and it looks like I wun be in Singapore for almost all the weekends in July save for the last one .. I will be region hopping for work and also pleasure.

Looks like a tiring july but the last trip is the one I am looking forward to .. am popping over to Hong Kong to meet up with friends, allthanks to the fantastic airfare that Singapore Airlines dangled this week, SGD298 inclusive of taxes, cheaper than budget airlines too. Plans have been made to party, do some shopping and stuff my face with food. Am popping over to China (Shen Zhen) for a day trip for cheap massages too ..wooopeedooo. The Hong Kong Trip Starts in 30 days .. the count down begins .. would it be too kiasu if I started packing now ?

Mid Month Challenge - March

I am hosting the Mid Month Challenge over at the Made with Love Forum and I decided to challenge them to a style rather than a theme, and I chose Bohemia ..I was thinking of a free spirited theme and also more grunged up, rocker chic, but yet flirty and girl-ly at the same time .. here is my take on the layout ..

Supplies used : -

Patterned Papers : Glitz Rebel Manuscript and K&co Que Sera Sera Stripe and Royal Shell
Fonts : AC Patchwork Thickers and MLS Red Lipstick
Embellishments : Prima Flowers and Pearls Swirls, Ten Seconds Studio Metal and Big Momma Plates (available soon at MWL), 7G stickers, Art Declassified Stamps (butterfly and Ticket ), Maya Road Pom Pom Ribbons (green) and Vintage Pins, Prima Deco Tape.

All Available at MWL !!!

Do come by the forum to participate ... see you there .. and of course like all challenges, I am sponsoring a RAK or maybe 2 .. :)

Get Well Soon YEN !!!

I had the most distressing news recently, news about a really nice girl being sick .. Yen who works at Shabby was recently diagnosed with Cancer .. and will soon leave shabby to seek treatment back home in Manila and to be with family. I wish her well and all the best in her treatment .

I will always remember Yen as she amazed me with her cutting skills using a pair of ordinary scissors, shoppers in shabby would know this for a fact. A really fun loving girl too and I will always remember how she made classes in Shabby so much easier.

Please get well soon and I hope I'll get a chance to see you back in Shabby ... *HUGZ*

*edit* .. if you would like to contribute to Yen's Medical fund, please contact the lovely people at Shabby, I am sure that they would be able to direct on how to contribute... thank you in advance ... remember every little bit counts especially in these difficult economic times ...
