project 365: 2nd week—

project 365 — 2nd week


day 8 — you can basically get online from anytime and anywhere these days. here we were at a local KFC while waiting for megat at one of his taekwondo classes held twice a week.

day 9 — megat looked happy on a friday morning, getting ready to go to school. his po-po would give them RM1 each on this days.

day 10 — like i mentioned earlier, i was in school for our OGA’s AGM during the day. so i chose this picture as the picture of the day (pic taken by the event‘s emcee) — i joined my line dance group for a “mother’s day dance party”. it was indeed my first time joining such event. i could say that it was well organized. we really enjoyed ourselves at the party. ms tung and i went back at around 11.30pm, but i heard that the party finished past midnight.

day 11 — here’s part of my line dance group (taken by megat). we joined an aerobic exercises organized by MPKK this morning, lead by fana’ aerobics. it was eventually screened live on tv1’s selamat pagi malaysia programmed around 7.40 am. i wonder whether any of you people saw me weee… :) FYI the whole SPM programmed has been telecast live in kuale— wonder whether its all because of the propaganda in the state recently, eee… malu nye… :(

day 12 — fruits from our very own homeland— papaya and quinine; both fell on the same day. other fruits that we have here are rambutans and avocados J

day 13 — budak koleq should know of where was this place. ya… its yut loy! i had lunch there with mama. kak roza, wan chor and auntie tut were still in ipoh so we ordered first as were already hungry like hell hehee… check-out the stairs people. i could say that its so unique as it has a wooden stairs gate up the stairs. can you see? you can’t find this features in modern homes.

day 14 — this was the view of my former secondary school from my car seat. wednesday supposed to be a co-curriculum day but since it’s the exam week, puteri went back early at 2pm instead because she do not have to attend the activities. i went straight to puteri’s school after send megat’s pack lunch.

project 365: 1st week—

project 365 — 1st week


day 1 — i thought to myself, what a good way for me to start this project 365 of mine with a picture of our home. this is part of a corner of our ‘green room’ which is quite synonym for our family's photography session especially during hari raya.

day 2 — i have just came back from town when i snapped this pic. i was on the look out for orange colour thread and satin ribbon. here’s what happened: we had an invitation from a young uncle for his new born son’s “kenduri marhaban” on 16th may 2009. mama asked of what we going to bring for baby ibby. since i had some 100% cotton cartoon print with matching plain orange fabrics, that i simply bought at the sunday market the week before (without knowing of what was it for); i had the idea to sew a simple tote bag filled with baby toiletries. i am so glad that they like our handmade gift.

day 3 — picture taken by megat, shown me with auntie zarina and baby ibby; at the kenduri marhaban held at a grand auntie‘s place in bukit chandan. normally functions like this are the chance for us relatives and friends to meet up out of our normal daily routine. i like...

day 4 — i was waiting for puteri to buy bread at a mini market when i saw this new banner hanged by a local café, the gate café at the back view of their café in jalan kangsar. they have been accused of serving non-halal food. i am sure they took drastic action this way to prove to kualé people that they actually served halal food. i myself was surprised at first when i heard about this as i knew that they employed malay cooks i.e. malay makcik and some malay guys.

day 5 — i as one of the committee members of my former secondary school’s PTA has been invited for the school’s teacher’s day celebration. this scene really reminds me of my school days huhu... i used to stand/sit there for five years of my secondary school’s life. we had our daily morning assembly there way from mama’s time, and now… its puteri‘s turn. can you spot her? it was so nostalgic i tell you. we could also see the wonderful panoramic view of the sungai perak from there.

day 6 — this view was from the back of aked mara building here in kuala kangsar. along this road as well, was the back part of the shop houses located along jalan kangsar in town. far end is megat’s school. i have just brought megat to see my uncle at his clinic when i snapped this pic. megat was coughing and has minor fever. he was so happy when my uncle gave him two days medical leaves :)

day 7 — i had just arrived from my former high school when i remembered that i haven’t take any pics of the day yet. so as you could see, that’s my stuff that i normally brought for any school’s PTA’ committee meeting and such: starbucks coffee 2009' diary and its meeting minutes papers. guess what people, i will be going to my school again this saturday for our OGA's AGM 2009!


it was a great week for this project even though its only the first week. can't wait to see the full results :)

project 365

14.05.2009 — my project 365 begins!


project 365



what?

what is a project 365? in this case it involves me taking (at least) a picture a day for the next year and posting it to my blog. anyhow i thought of updating them in a collage form with show-and-tell style, once a week insya Allah. find out more details on the project here.



why?

i am doing this for a couple reasons. it seems like an interesting way to chronicle a year. what when i decided to start doing it today, a day after my 37th birthday :) so that means by the time i celebrate my next birthday, i will be recording not just the extraordinary events, but day to day things that might slip through the cracks, the haircuts, the scrapes, the little victories... also, i hope to get better at taking pictures. if you do something every day for a year it stands to reason that you will get better at it.



how?

i will be taking pictures with my oly. i will then upload the results to flickr and will post the picture selected to represent that day here mixed in with the rest of my posts. if you want to see them all look for the project 365 label in the category listing.



i really hope you will enjoy the results. i am sure that there will be days that the pictures are painfully ordinary, but keep an eye out for the diamonds in the rough.

if you are taking part in project 365 i’d love to hear about it — and see how you are doing. leave a comment here or on any of my posts. i will check out your project for sure.

favourite perfume?

just wondering of what everyone’s favourite perfume is?

one of mine is red door revealed perfume by elizabeth arden, that was given to me by V for my birthday few years ago. elizabeth arden introduces this fragrance with the heart of a classic. deliciously pink. fun and flirty. the vibrant new floral fragrance was inspired by red door's evocative orchids and spirit of modern luxury.

the other favourite perfume of mine is f by salvatore ferragamo. this has been given to me for my birthday also, by my lil' sister. so if you smell me now, its the f! ;)

hey people... you too can talk about your favourite perfume at new perfume blog!

this is a sponsored post.

write with both hands...

we were having our lunch at one of the pizza hut outlet in ipoh on last friday, when puteri teased megat for eating the soup by holding the spoon with his left hand. ya... megat is a left-handed. so we started to talk about it while waiting for our pizza. then mama asked megat of what we called a person who can write with his/her both hands.

"both handed!", megat answered seriously.

as usual, we were all laughed like hell!!! hehee...
