They're The First~ Dewi & Pandelela

Couldn't feel more proud!

Congrats Dewi Liana for winning 2014 Miss World Talent category. Her singing was simply mesmerizing that sent a shiver down my spine! It is the first time ever that a Malaysian brought home a title from the Miss World beauty pageant competition, and to top it off, she's a Sarawakian :)

And when I think back, the first Malaysian woman who brought back an Olympic medal was also from Sarawak. She was our darling Pandelela Rinong.

With Pandelela in 2012, during a meet and greet session with fans after coming home from winning her Bronze Olympic medal. Right pic, with Dewi in 2010, when she was one of the contestants for our Miss Fitness competition. Who would have thought, she would be among one of the hundred over most beautiful women in world competing for the Miss World 2014 crown. 

I am just honored, that I have met and spent a bit of time with these two awesome talented individuals. I may not ever have that chance ever again.. Dewi has the most beautiful skin, with a beautiful singing voice and crazy tall! Told her she better take a seat for our pics together because I'd look like a dwarf standing next to her :) Pandelela is super shy. Very soft spoken, humble and she appears to be just like any other teenage girl. 

I just cannot imagine how proud their parents must be. They sure have made the whole nation and a lot of Sarawakians very very proud :) THANK YOU DEWI AND PANDELELA!!

13 Dec 2014 Staff Gathering

We are just so excited because it was the company first ever staff dinner gathering. Thank you to darling Lin for snapping we-fies non stop we have loads of group photos to show to our grandkids later! Hahahhaaa.. Ohh my, she's so good with the monopod I tell you! Thanks Lin!! 

Me and Lin, our Monopod Princess ;)

My colleagues are like my own family. The ladies are like my own younger sisters.. heheee.. yaaa! They are much younger than me. When they asked hanicomb to sponsor a necklace for our Queen Of The Night, I couldn't say NO. Because these people would never say NO to me. They are the best colleagues you could ever asked for, LOVE all of them to bits!! Though I had to struggle with time to finish the necklace, I would definitely do it again just for them :D

So, when the dinner committee began to have their discussions about the venue, budgets, prizes.., I wasn't involved at first. I came into being the a committee when they needed an emcee. And of course I said YES right instantly! :)

Had so much fun! Though tired, but we're satisfied with the program. Timing was perfect, and there were no boring moments because each time in between we always had something to entertain everyone. Syukur Alhamdulillah.. 

The committee, going gaga over the lucky draw prizes
Each and every one of our 70 colleagues who attended the gathering 
went home with a gift or two, including us :)

We are happy everything went so well Alhamdulillah,
a huge CONGRATULATIONS to them my awesome colleagues! :*

Ever since the committee announced the dinner theme, I made a point to come up with a necklace for myself to wear. Managed to whip up a red/black piece a day before and finished off attaching the ribbons an hour before getting ready. 

And the lucky lady of the night was Zalina, she wore a beautiful red/black assemble and has been eyeing on the necklace since she entered the dinner hall!! Hhahaaaaa.. She must have been praying really hard for the necklace ;)

Congrats INA!! 

And that's me, before leaving the house.
Seri took few quick snaps while hubby's car headlights (you can tell from my shadows on the wall) were already 'telling' me to get in the car! Hahaaahaaaa!

For me, being comfortable is KEY. Pants and shirt, with a statement necklace ;)

Greens For Tired Eyes

Weekend is the best! I can wear my most comfortable old faded denim shirt and
enjoy as much green as I want ;) 

My weekend Saturday Sunday these days are always packed with beadings, family time, meeting with the other Women's Institute volunteers, weddings.. If I could, I would just prefer to be home with my family, and try to settle my hanicomb orders. 

When I do get this rare 'free' time, most of the hours I'd be sewing or go out and spend time with my kids. But there were times, I think, I spend wayyyy tooo much time with my needles and little beads and I know very well that is very very bad for my eyes. 

I got to know, if you want to give your eyes a 'break', go out and stare at the greens. If you could, try to focus on greens that are far farrrrrr away from you, not on greens that you're stepping on :D

Can't get me to stare at the nearest greens ya.., I'll start counting the leaves :P

Have a good weeks peeps!
