Costly Prank Joke aka Vandalism

Yes, the words are "lu mati lu langsi" excerpted from a local movie.
No parts of the whole right body were spared from the itchy hands wilderness.
If anyone would like to practice on their creativity they should use their cars as a practice board instead.
Rather than doing irresponsible act at the cost of others, in this case me and my hub.

Or anybody want to express any dissappoinment, disssatisfaction over car over-taking, miss-parking, bad debt, rejected love, annoying horny cats howling, please come forward like a true gentleman (man or woman).

Or anybody who feels as being discriminate over us for having the chance to drive this semi-superbcar and enjoy the true meaning of pleasure of driving a real stable car.

You know where to find us, we will be waiting for you with open arms.
(I will be holding open arm but I am not sure of my hub, he was really pissed off lately)

He/She/They should bear all the monetary damages not to mention the physcological damages since I 've been parading the whole town in the car which has attracted unwanted glances from our caring society who have given me a very prejudice looks as if they were saying that I am a very bad and rude driver to the point that my car was scratched so!!!!!

Honestly speaking, I myself personally have been bullied by other drivers but to bully others in return is not my principle.

No matter how big the machine you are manuevering, to show off its power unreasonably is not my main concern for driving.


P/s: This entry may sound sarcastic only to those who commit the voluntary-self-suicide of the above action.

P/s: God is so just for not creating me as a human who could turn green when mad. Amin Allah!!

What Have I Done Wrong ?????

Some wrongful acts sometime justify themselves.
Some become puzzles that remain unsolved in our life's X-file..
But I am banging my head to this incident that occured to me last June, Saturday the 4th to be precise.

It was a busy day since I was entertaining my out-of-town visiting sister to here and there.
My final stop was the night market at AU2.
And I still remembered we arrived home at the same time the Maghrib azan been called.

The car was parked in front of my house, next to who-knows whom Wira, who suddenly has parked also in front of my house too.
So, is the Wira relates to the incident? Only God knows, as Kid Rock sang : "Only God knows why...".

yes, my car has been ambushed again.
Its midnight that I was asked by my late-returned husband of the condition of the car.
What happened to the car? Who has you done bad to today???", he asked in anger to the innocent me!
I rushed to the car and almost faint to find out that the whole right body has been scratched with words and straight-and-wavey-lines.

What else people are envied of me, or us that our car has became the victim, again, for the 2nd time!!!
The incident still lingered freshly in our mind that sometimes people around us can be so loose minded.

We are living in a world that was sorrouded by crazy people who are too shy to attend themselves to the proper home, to be precise, the asylum.
Outside we are looking at others as normal as us, but inside, ONLY GOD KNOWS who they really are.
Their true faces can be so intimidating, so scary.
Can be as scary as monsters, mean monsters.

For the wrongdoer(s), you owe us so much. Even though he or she or they are not reading this!!

Images of the tragedy will be uploaded later.

Home at Last!!!

Last week before heading back to KB, I managed to distribute the missing cat ad to every postbox in 4 lanes of my neighborhood.
Its really sweating I can conclude now it was killing two birds with a stone.
Because all the efforts were paid off and I had pumped more oxygen into my lung by walking.
And two vets clinics in Tmn Melawati and Pinggiran Ukay.
Given the time constraint upon blik kg plan, more ads were copied and folded to be distributed to the remaining lanes/blocks.
Allah has tested me in faith and calm.

1st, never, ever to give up.
Even my daughter said : " Tomorrow Abang Comel (the cat) will return home!" so confidently.
And my hubby was criticised by me for saying : " Maybe fate has decided that he only with us for 6 years!". Spank on you darling !!!
Yes, he should learn not to loose hope so easily.
How come he didnt in his business but gave up on the cat???

The verdict, when I was on the way up to the city last nite my brother who was home at UB suddenly called and informed that a good samaritan form the neighborhood has brought Comel home in one piece, with only minor cuts from cats fights of course.
To him I asked him to get their numbers.
This morning when I got home, I just shouted his name off from the gate wihout even considering that my neighbors would call me 'mad ladt etc'.

Besides his shabby look and the dirt, he has developed a pus on his ear as a result of infection from disclosed cut.
So then I rushed him to the nearby vet, which he became reluctant as usual.
He refused to get off the cage to be laid on exam bar for the vet to check on his real injury.
Then when she tried to clean the pus, he gave the defensive sound or 'GGrrrrr' ready to strike.
As a result, we (me n the doc) resolved that he needs to be on anesthetic for the whole body cleaning.
So he was boarded for a nite.

I was in mixed emotions; joy, blessed, thankful, sad, mad, etc, etc so I couldnt manage to shoot even a photo of him.

But, I was so relieved to have him again, thankful to Allah for giving me more opportunity to continue what I did, and sending me a good person who is responsible, helpfulvenough to lend me their hands even though we didnt know each other.
Insyaallah Comel will heal off.

Thanks to many invisible helping hands and friend for their cats networks.
Alhamdulillah!!! I bowed to You!

Description : Flurry Siamese mixed
Gender : Male
Fur Color : White, no spots/strips
Eye Color : Odd Eyes (Blue & Yellow)
Other Info : Adorable/Charming look but mild
Fierce. In bad health (sore-throat & flu). Trimmed/shaved fur at tail. Colarless.
Lost Date : 16th May Evening approx 4pm
Residence Address : UB10, Tmn Ukay Bistari
Please Contact If Found/Seen : Nik 012-6652531 OR Niki 012-9154340.

OR, Please Return If Locked Inside Your House/Cage!!!
TQ / Terima Kasih.

The whole family is still grieving over the lost of my late dad last 11th.
Suffering of severe chest pain and being kicked out of hospital even though he was in deep need of doctor care, finally he rested in piece.
What to do, our free government health delivery system is still in poor condition.

After few days returning to KL, our dearest cat, Comel was lost, or missing.
This is the 1st incident after almost 7 years been with us.
Whenever he ecsaped from the cage before, he never failed to return home.
But this time its really fishy.
He must have been caught and kidnapped, and traveled to other place outside neighborhood, OR, he was locked in cage by whoever they think they are.

I am in the midst of distributing the missing cat ad throughout the neighborhood.
Comel, being the cutest cat decsribed by most people, was easily identifiable.

He was so adorable, with charming look, but one cannot really go near or touch him, he may scratch (not bite) in a blink of seconds, leaving the victim (like me) a bloody, painful cut.

Anyone nearer, or far, who might have glimps of him, please let me know.

I AM TIRED OF LOSING, even though you may say : "Its LIfe!"

Passport Holders (PH) Part II

********Continuation from previous Part I********

After buzzing and spinning my head to be more creative, and finding more inspiration for improvement, I decided to let nature plays its role.
Yes, improvise through experience.
To gain more experience, we have to do, or imagining the whole process over and over again.
Then the new idea will ***bling in seconds, or next day, next week, or worse; never!

But repetitious tasks were not my interest, nor copying from other's whole idea.
I prefer to modify the task, or come out with something new.
And its so unbelievable that achieving it was so easy given I was not born in the same group as Albert Einstein, or, Marie Curie, etc, etc.
Yes, you don't need to have a degree in Engineering, or a Noble prize recipient, or a genius to sew one.
God eased all the way. And He will always.

So I have sewed another 6 passport holders to be given away to my dearest friends who loved (and have ample opportunity to travel abroad unlike pity me), and my sister and her hubby, and my neighbour's Indonesian maid.
~Yes, all the six while the 7th has been given away to the said maid.
I deserve an overseas vacation, didn't I?

All in the hope that the holders are becoming very useful and handy to them to keep their passports in a groovy holders.

I was doing a small spring cleaning towards my purses, and bags and related stuffs when I came across two delicious bright colors Hermes leather purses organiser brought years ago.

I wonder if people can survive these shocking shades from Hermes (and not to mention also LV glaming fuchsia bag), why not to the red polka-dot, and other colorful and fancy small petite passport holders???
I had no problem, but dont know their tastes much.

~I was trying to make an 18" bias tape with this polka dots in this gorgette/polyester fabric that it wont stand the press from a heated iron.
+++Couldnt produce a seam pleat at all.
+++Lesson learnt is other than cotton or polycotton, the DIY bias tape wont work on other silky or unporust surface.

~a red bear fabric for the baby

~the clear ID window so that Immigration Officer be able to read the details

~these fabrics themed in red and black "Hanging Clothes" from fabric fanatics too

~the red and black have a plastic window made of rigid sheet

~juggling from my sewing activity, I still have to entertain the lil one who has 'played hockey' aka ponteng to school for 2 weeks in a row!

SORRY you all had to read all the long, detail, mumblings. Hey, thats what blogs are for!

Passport Holders (PH) Part I

With more tools available for DIY, I have started my little small humble sewing project with passport holders.

~The inspiration was from LC passport holder that I bought few years ago from Mrs June Miller.

For a dummy starter like me, my free advise is to sketch the outline from the original (in my case the black LC) over an A4 paper.
If some measurement doesnt fit enough, you may need to extend the paper using some cellophene tape.
Extend your imagination a little bit wild (?) to imagine for other inlays corners or pockets if desired. Also imagine the fold to make it like a book fold.

Then provide for some seam allowances for, maybe, 1 inch each edge.
After that, we can start to cut the fabric according to the measurement calculated from the paper plan/drawing/layout.
And sew with patience!.
Sorry I didnt attach a step-by-step instruction.

And, voila, my 1st PH was this:

~in green forest fabric made of thick cotton sourced from lovely Kelly of http://fabricfanatics.blogspot.com/

Few mistakes were made, and I admitted it.
But believe me, as time goes by, I improvised.
So the learning curve was never stopped.
For 2nd, 3rd and so on, some near-to-perfect outcomes attained.

~the inner layout

~I stitched a readymade label to it too! sourced from same as above

~the snap-on-button I install using the pliers and other tools supplied in the kit

OVERALL, I have just partly-justified all the money spend are worthy every penny, and for good cause to me, only, for the moment.

DIY and Sewing Tools Shopping

I managed to be to Jalan Kenanga last week to purposely hunt for some wooden kid-size hanger. Yeah, to hang the sewed peg bags.
After finally securing a decent parking space, Phhew!
Parking is a main problem for shoppers that regulars would agree with me.

After browsing two shops, only, because the lil one (yes, where else to dump that excess baggage?) kept complaining that its very hot, I finally found the target item.
Sadly, not the exact one, but a tolerable subtitute, at RM1.80 per piece.
I grab only 15 considering I am gonna be there again for more additions.

~Arghhhh, another headache for parking space hunting...

After that I zoomed to Ampang's Cottage Patch.
This time to buy some rotary cutter, button cover kits, etc atc.
And I end up buying all the dreamed wish list totalling to RM300++.
After folkart, this new extra hobby is money consuming too!

~45mm & 60mm Olfa rotary cutter, Prym eyelets plier, press fasteners, cover button kits, 1" bias tape maker

~1st product: 18mm fabric cover buttons to match with the pegs

~and since my threads are increasing, I added another level to the hanger..

I am trying to occupy my limited free time to do few new exploration project.
In the midst of finishing one peg bag for Nurin, this little accident happened while we were enjoying the full-chocolatey Choc Indulgence cake.

The victim, this time, on the little five years old hand, was none other than the Country Rose Corelle bread n butter plate.

I just hold, and gasped my breath, with a cash register "***blink!!!!" sound in my head.
Trying to recall how much they sold it a piece in the market, that was my lost for the day.
Positively, I shouldnt convert any lost in monetary term or, value.
One would say, but I am adjusting my sanity to not to turn to insanity on the wrongdoing and especially, the wrongdoer.

Luckily, no one were njured from the broken pieces scattered on the floor.
By the time, the cake has been fuly salvaged in our stomaches.

However, my patience was again been challenged when this happen :

~YES, my chinas cabinets has been trepassed by the plastic 'masak-masak' toys belong to whoelse...
So, to still be in control I am trying to have another project to be LLB , 'Look Like Busy' as my husband would like to refer to when he saw anyone is bustling around or juggling to do some work done....

How Much Does This Cost?

Few days ago out of the blue when deciding of the lunch menu, suddenly it crossed my mind to cook the gulai lemak ikan masin.

Noticing that my fresh food supplies were running out made me rush to the nearby supermarket, the G at BA. (gee, goods at this G are more pricey than the other Gs)

Yes, this entry is specially post to share with viewers, that I found myself shocked but no choice of looking at the tag of 1 (one) piece of daun kunyit (is it called as turmeric leaf?).

It carry a shocking tag of MYR 0.89...

~due to a bit vague image, pls zoom it if you cant see it clearly

Yeap, yea, some of you who know me may be puzzled.

Gosh, lately the main commodity ie petrol price per litre has risen from MYR2.15 to 2.30.
In the same month again to 2.40 then till now 2.50....and all other things follow voluntarily.
For a non-price sensitive inelastic demanded goods like petrol, we consumers left with no choice except for only pay at whatever price, even at MYR10/litre we still WILL PAY...or, have to....

Gosh again, my economics vocabs are rusting like a worn out enamel...

DIY-Peg Bags

My bought peg bags are too precious to be used as a peg bag.
Ideally the bag should then be outside purposely to store laundry pegs, but I am worried that the harsh weather will make it dull, so such a waste.

Its been lingering in my mine besides the thread and cushions plots, and wanting to produce one on my own.
(wonder what else are my plots ?)

So I decided to trace and cut from the existing LA, reminding myself of how pricey there are.
Not to mention and be compared to the Portmeirion which are far more pricey.
Originally aiming to have a jumbo size to occupy the lil one school books, which is :

~I am suffering of big headache and tantrum temper of having a lil mess-maker in the house

~hopefully some of the books will be stored in this supersize peg bag

And I also made another extra 5 bags to be given away to my nieces, yes, I had more than five, but I assumed only this figure will appreciate them.
To date since, I've been busy playing a good housewife role to a husband who had just came back from farm, I managed to finish four only.

~I only had a basic stitching sewing machine so the lettering were stiched using the button hole mode

CNY Otak Otak

Last week the whole clan went back to Kerteh while daddy only stayed in the farm house for the entire duration.
We left KL on a rainy Sunday, and the three cats were comfortably clamped at the back of the jeep, with everything, from a Suzuki TS250 and other farming equipment.

Things were no different at the back of the seat, where my suitcase and Waielah's were arranged by daddy.
Being a loving father, he managed to reserve one seating space next to the piled trunks enough for the small body to lay for rest.
But, nothing compares to mummy's comfy lap seating, and the calming body heat, that the lil one still climbed to me for a nap along the journey.

On CNY holiday ie Thursday, we had a simple family gathering, with nothing but makan-makan agenda, of course!
From Monday, my brother had helped to cut me some fresh coconut leaves from my dad's front yard where I recut into a proper measurement to pack some otak-otak.

As per my sister's expert request, the leaves are supposed to be aired for 3 days, so that it will be gently soft on the packing day to avoid any breakage or leak.
And also some string from the leaves balances were cut with sharp end to clip the two leaves together in approximately 6cm each.
Yes, the tree was proven to be a real multi-use, not to mention the coconut milk and grated young coconut grated were the main ingredients for the otak-otak's fishes marinate spice.

Since my sister promised that all the marinate ingredient will be prepared in her house and had it brought to my dad's house, so I had no chance to actually jot down the recipe.
I only experienced the process once with my sister long time ago, when I am not quite a serious to learn, and countless times with my beloved late Mom.

The day came and my other sister brought 4 kilos of three variant fishes, and the otak-otak were barbecued inside the kitchen.
And yes, my dad is still a traditional guy who had one cooking space for us to use traditional method of cooking, like this time charboil; by using some woods, char, dried coconut shell (again),etc, etc.
~mmmm, for those who had tasted this Terengganu's (not the other Johor's Tg Gelang style), the experience is....unexplainable

~somehow, the burning fire was in pink when caught by camera...

After digging on the otak-otak, we went off to Kg Chabang for a distant family's grand wedding (by the local standard) and had a sumptous wedding's gulai (two thumbs up), so yumm...

And to the nearby daddy's farm to send away some for him and the crews to feast on.
Then to MMall to shop some gift for my brother's House Warming (another makan2?)aka Kenduri Doa Selamat tomorrow.

I am filled, how many kilos gained this time?

Where Can I Get This On This Earth?

I am trying to do some folk art plaque for my hubby's farm.
The idea has been mapped in my mind.
Even though the drawing and painting parts havent been commissioned, I am very, very worried where to source the metal scrapbooking label holder, or called bookplates, or its any other equivalent terms that I didbt come accross.

My soon to be key holder will have a bit painting, on a mmmmm, MDF board.
Some hooks will be nailed on to act as hangers.
Above the hangers, each will have a label of which key refers to which.
And I am planning to label it by way of this hard to find label holders.
All the images I can get from wonderful internet search engine.

None local sources, only found a China manufacturer with a minimum order requirement of 10, 000 units (what I am gonna do with these bulk????) at the cost of USD330 exclude of shipping.
Yeap, yeap I may consider to buy the bulk and sell via the net with the power of internet networking but I had only limited friends.
But its the last resort.

Some local online crafts blogs also offer it, but with preorder from US.
And one eBay seller from Singapore.
I had not many choices, most of them are pricey.

Please, just shout me at ShoutBox (not my ears, please), and I will try to get back to you very soon.
Cause I am going back to the farm tomorrow.

Some may say, " who says art and craft are free, they are pricey", but I am still want to realise a free, cheap or affordable piece of art.

Yes, art is subjective, but it should not be manipulated by some for their own benefits on the cost of others.

Yes, economists may not agree ; there is no free meal in the world, opportunity costs, cost and worth exist, etc etc.
Thanks readers, chiaoooo...........wish me a safe journey tomorrow.
