Popular BookFest 2011 @KL Convention Centre


We were there from 3-7pm, but we didn't get much this year.
Some more including 2 books from Kinokuniya.
Fangyee got Elizabeth Noble's novel which is recommended as a good read by her best friend.

The backdated magazines that I buy almost every issues, Shopping Design and My Lohas.
Both from Taiwan.
The Tokyo-Kyoto book is bought at Kinokuniya, no discount though.

MING is a magazine from China, which we find it a nice reading material.

Chenyee got the Macaroons and Eating India from the book fair, both under RM20 which is a good bargain.
'好吃' is bought from Kinokuniya at 20% discount, which is now RM25.70. This Taiwan magazine is featuring bread! :)



Catch the BookFest @ Malaysia 2011 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), 
Hall 1 - 5 from 10am till 10pm.

DIY: Rose clutch

I'd been keeping these rose fabrics (from sample book) for awhile, loving it very much and wanted to do something with it, but had no idea how to start.

On a relaxing Sunday, a sudden thought "why not I make a clutch?"

So I brought it out from my drawer and started to cut and sew.


I must be seeing Hoyoyi's reversible baby booties that sparks me of making the clutch reversible too!
I bought her baby booties for my friend before too.

Aren't they lovely? :)

Walking In Singapore

I visited Singapore last month to watch dance performance
"Mémoires d'Oubliettes/Sehnsucht: A Double Bill"
by Nederlands Dans Theater I.
It was aweeeeesome! It was my first time to watch this kind of world class performance.

Other than that, we just walked around the island.
We visited some adjoining shopping malls such as City Hall Suntec City and Millenia Walk.
Also visited Haji Lane for those unique boutiques.

We stayed in the quite new Pillow & Toast which we quite like that place if not talking about the 4-walls-without-window room.

Nice wall mural at Mosque st.

Ann Siang Hill. Love this place, so photogenic.

Sunshine on yellow wall, near Haji Lane.

A wall in Haji Lane.

A bike shop! Cool!

Aren't they beautiful?

Accidental shot.
That's Tom's Shoes, which is quite a common sight on that street.



We came to Esplanade to watch the dance.
Beautiful dusk here.

 Walking around again on the next morning.

Quiet lane near Chinatown.

Sea view from plane.
The ships are like toys!
