Stay Silent

Yesterday we had Portluck family dinner at our place, around 30+ people, overall it was fun, except when we show some of them our wedding photos shoot by Ric, the PC is in our room, while watching the slide, this happen:

Aunty A : She(refer to me) look better with long wedding gown, look slimmer.
Aunty B : She is ok, not that fat.
Aunty A : She is fat lah!
Aunty B : No la, she is ok, not fat lah!
Aunty A : She is lah, u see...(and she point her finger at me...)!!!

and this conversation happened when so many pple watching the slide, and Aunty A say this infront of me... It was pretty hurt, I know I am not that slim, but, CANT YOU DONT SAY THAT INFRONT OF ME???!!!

I dont know how to react, I only act blur and stay silent...

and the best is, this Aunty A is the one ask me to knit a bolero for her!!!

Our Wedding Photo Shoot

Last Friday was our Wedding Photo Shoot. We went to JB at 0930hrs in the morning but the make up took too long to complete. The weather was not good and we started the shoot indoor at 12noon, then followed by outdoor at 1700hrs and finish at 1830hrs.

Overall I am still happy with results. Ric, my bil went with us and he manage to shoot 100+ photos for us too, here are some sneak previews. Looking at all the lovely photos make all the long hours worth it.

Our First Meet

Yesterday after work, I rushed down to China Town, waiting at the MRT control station expecting to meet Rain and Mira.

I brought these 2 little sweet girls to our LYS Golden Dragon but we came out empty-handed, then we proceeded to Sportlight and Jollin joined us there for dinner at Mos Burger too...

It has been awhile since I stepped into Sportlight and I realised that they have new ranges of yarns and I came home with these 9 balls of Panda wool+acrylic yarns,$2 for 50g/125m, what more to ask for?

Over the 3 hours, we enjoyed our time together and laughted about the Barbarian way of eating the chicken ha ha...thank you for the lovely evening :)

Rusted Root

I cast on this Rusted Root last Dec (did i just say Last Dec?? yes hehe) and finally I got it done.

This is the longest time I took to knit a top, when I was so excited to cast on, I could not decide on the colours and the type of yarns to use. I tried 5 ply China cotton in dirty yellow and Miami Cotton in olive green, and I just couldn't get the tension/gauge right!

I finally settled with Catania cotton in brick orange, and this is not the end of the story yet, I re-did twice because when I reached the arm, I realise the chest area is too small(30"), although I am making for bust size 36"-39"!!! This is really driving me nutz and I tell myself..dont give up...Seeing my buddies Jollin and Ziyun's rusted root FO does motivate me to pick up my rusted root from the basket again.

So, here I proudly present to you, my version of Rusted Root after so many trials.

Patt - Rusted Root by zephyrstyle
Yarn - 5.5 x 50g/125m Catania 100% Cotton
Needle - Inox 3.75mm/3.5mm

So fast the weekend has passed.

I was working full day yesterday, nothing much I can plan for the weekend, but still manage to get something done.

Friday after work, firstly was the wallet, this Gucci wallet was a gift from DD for valentine day, and I notice the the border faded in June, after 4 mths??? so I decided to bring it back to the boutique. In the end they agreed to repaint the border for me, well, at least they do something abt it, if not, dont think I will buy any product from there anymore.

Then we were running around to get DD's photo-shoot shirt, at first we went to Raoul at Suntec, no more DD's size, Paragon outlet no stock too, luckily we found one pce at Caltex house outlet, the staff was very helpful, they actually waited for us to collect the shirt although they were already closed.

My Friday ended with a nice dinner at Crystal Jade at Takashimaya and bean curd on the way home...

Saturday and Sunday nothing much...Knitting, movie and tv at home...
Oh the lovely H&M eyes shadow make-up kit all the way from Oslo definitely brighten up my weekend.

I have not been posting much on knitting stuff.

Too much on hand now and I have to slow down on knitting and start focus to prepare for the big day in Nov.
The RR, finally going to be completed left with sleeve/ colar ribbing, here how it look.

At the same time, I CO a scaft from IK Summer 2007 too, it was a replacement of a scaft size of LadyE as my LadyE dont really turn up to be what i want.

I am trying hard to stay focus to finish my wips , till then, no more new CO for this year.

Hmm.. can tahan? let see...


While feeling sad about today, I am trying hard to holding on, thanks to u gals who always support me.

Anyway, last weekend my buddies and I, together with R of cos, we went for my gowns selection for the photo shoot, after 3.5 hours and this are what choosen for indoor/ outdoor shoot on 13/7/07.
The actual day 1 day gown and 2 evening gowns will be MTM, I am quite looking forward.
