I'm back!!!

Yesss, back to my old self and feeling chirpier, relaxed and creative again!

And the best thing is, after months of a sewing lull, I'm slowing getting back into it again and it feels great. The bag that I promised a friend to make is coming along nicely and hopefully not long after this i shall be able to post some pictures to show you.

So what's been happening lately in my life? I guess one of the many highlights is that a really dear friend from Miri visited last week and we spent a great few days just catching up, relaxing and enjoying good food. Among some of the lovely Malaysian food that she brought along with her was durian cake, much missed by yours truly, a variety of sambal, dried prawn crackers, dried sotong and many, many more! I was overwhelmed, to say the least!

Another highlight was probably the fact that after 18 long months I've finally reached the stage where I was eligible for a phone upgrade and I went for a BlackBerry Torch. At first I wasn't sure about it, mainly because it was another 24 month contract and I wasn't sure if I wanted to get tied down to such a long contract but seeing that the trial period of 14 days to return the phone is coming up to an end very soon, I guess i'm kind of stuck with it now, aren't I! Oh well...I like the phone anyway...let's hope I'll still like it 12 months later... Gulp!

The recent rioting in England has raised many questions in terms of parenting skills, the irresponsible young generation and how easy it is for a group of yobs to go on a rampage for days before things got under control. It's also interesting to see various intellectuals with their theories behind the causes for the series of violence across the country... Among some possible causes mentioned were jobless and frustrated youths; senselessness; and gangsterism. But now it's emerged that some of the offenders charged consisted of a teaching assistant, a University student and a young mother, none of whom were, jobless, senseless nor a gangster!

I shook my head in disbelief as I watched clips of interview on the street where these offenders spoke openly and 'righteously' of their intention to continue looting and demonstrating violence until they are caught! I have run out of items of vocabulary to describe this surreal unfortunate incident. Only one word comes to mind - UNBELIEVABLE.

On that note, I'm declaring myself tired and sleepy and I'm off to bed. Hopefully when I see you next i'll be able to share pictures of my latest project!
