Above: Berita Harian weekend copy, 2nd section, published on 12th September 2010 (Sunday)
Alright....yeap, that's the surprise I've been waiting to reveal....ahh....it's really just a 1-minute-fame kinda thing to me honestly, but it's just strange and exciting to see your own things (and yourselves) printed in a national paper like Berita Harian. I mean, seriously, when I got the copy 1 day late (coz I couldn't get it on the day it came out) on Monday, I even missed this front page (of the 2nd section) coz I didn't think they would feature our home on front page most definitely....so I went right to the middle and saw those photos and article of us in the centrespread. Only hours later, when I retrieved the pages out to keep, that I saw the cover!!! LOL! Well, that was really exciting...and weird......to see my bed, our bedroom...right there! LOL!
But one thing though, I wasn't surprised to find out they have decided to feature the babes' room as the biggest photo in the article itself.....I've mentioned this before....(I think?), it's my favourite room in the whole house! And you see the tiny family pix there? Yeap, you've seen this before...in my previous 3rd post. Sorry, I am just too lazy to scan the pages out....so here.....read it online, while it's still available. But then....sorry to those peeps who can't read nor understand Malay.....the paper is a Malay paper, LOL!
Am a stay-at-home mummy to 2 little pears who loves most things DIY, home decor, and feels guilty about using plastic bags . Pear is my name (online and referred to by my 2 sistas only), originated from my chinese name Pei actually......but u can call me Joey:)
oves to eat cupcakes!!! :D
I love makin a lot of things, from art to woodworking, but I only do it coz it makes me happy, very happy!!! :) (And being happy is important to me)
Thing is, there's only so much I can make for myself, my two babes, hubby, home and people around me.....thus, I decided to sell the things I make, TWO MAIN reasons actually: a) so I can continue to make more, b) so I might be able to save up enough $ to buy myself an electric sewing machine and a serger (so I don't have to go to the shop to get my buttonholes and serging done each and every time!)because I believe my hobby should pay for itself:)
"happiness is when you can live with imperfections, it's also when you don't seek it.....if something or someone prevents happiness from you, you should just omit the causer from your life! It's really that simple."
