Good Times

 I have not been participating in International National Scrapbooking Day or iNSD, for a long time. Since the FB private group "Bash Your Stash Challenge is organising an iNSD, I decided to participate. The main goal for the various challenges is to use up scraps from stash, and all the papers and ephemeras collected over the years but never used, for some reason. For my first iNSD layout I created one that uses the tiny scraps. It really is great to be able to declutter my scraps stash. I hope so. 

I used an old photo for the project and this was a group photo of our final Team Building project for Facilities Management. At the time rumours flew around that FM will be disbanded and outsourced. The staffs from Petronas will no longer be seconded to Exxon and the Exxon staffs will be given the VSS. This was the best times we had.

Here is the layout 1 for #byssnsd2021.

Supplies used:
American Crafts Cardstock
Core Coredination Cardstock
Kaisercraft Embellies
Scraps of papers from various brands
Rosie's Studio Sticker for Titles

These are the scraps used. The before photo

A layout by Karen Casd as Inspiration

I am also entering this layout for Stamplorations Spring Blog Hop Challenge, "Things With Wings".

I used a few butterflies here and a bird.

Chase Adventure

This layout is created for Kraft+ challenge - Torn Paper. As always it was done at the last minute. I do like how it turn out though.

I decided to use my old photo that was taken when were in Korea in 2015. I plan to create an album of our trip to Jeju Island and Seoul.

The reason I chose this title was a way to encourage my daughter who had been dreaming of going to Korea to never give up on her dreams. When the opportunity arose, I seized the chance and it was the best gift I could give to my daughter and husband. It also was my first and last trip with ExxonMobil, the Company I was working for at the time.

Supplies used: Kraft Paper
Kaisercraft Floral Romance Pattern Paper
DCWC Paper Lace (Doily)

Daiso Handmade Flowers
Handmade Flowers by Asmah (HERE)
Corner Punch

Bazzil Cardstocks (Backing)
Bella Die-cut Pack
Flow (Book for Paper Lovers) - Tag
Paper Boutique
Rosie's Studio (Title)

Just some close-ups:



This is the challenge for March 2021:

It was a fun project and I hope to participate more. 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your love.

Staycation Projects - Mix and Match

 We have already passed the mid-January of 2021. How time flies. Since we are on MCO 2.0, I have been on Homecation as my little sister, Asmah said. What have I achieved for the past 19 days at home? Not much because I have been spending a lot of my time watching Abandoned Places videos. Currently the Broken Window Theory Urban Exploration. Here is one and you can just go to their youtube channel to watch the series.

Watching this channel truly evoke mixed feelings in me. The things we work so hard to accumulate, the house we work so hard to purchase, cars, and whatever possessions we had will be abandoned one day and become ruins or become forgotten. I have seen a number of abandoned houses during my travels but I never really pay much attention to them. Until I watch these videos, there are histories related to them. Histories untold or one can take the time to research on them to know more.

After watching each and every episode, I decided to evaluate the things that I have accumulated thus far. Things prior to my marriage that were either handed down to me by my parents or bought, wedding gifts, items bought after marriage, gifts of some kind or freebies that come with good purchased. I am going to re-evaluate and break them up into:

1) Recycle

2) Reuse

3) Resell

4) Trash

I know I have done more than 30 days last year decluttering and reducing stuffs. Along the way I did not do a re-organization and cleaning of the vacant slots created. Today, I am going to show what I did with one cabinet. I shall work my way cabinet to cabinet and hopefully able to reduce more. This is my journey to an Organization and Cleaning Staycation or Homecation during MCO 2.0.

Wrapping Up 2020 - Ironing Day 3 and Trip to Lumut

 I have to try and cover as much as of the ironing today because tomorrow we going on a day trip to the North. Not sure where we will end up but Lumut is the name of the place.

December 30, 2020

Today will be the last day I am ironing the clothes and if there is a remainder these were newly brought in from the lines. No harm carrying the job forward because housework never ends. There is no closing in for housework. Then again, that's what keep us going.

Oh....there is no photos to show. I did iron a bit more and yes, I did leave two piles behind to carry over. The three piles from previous photo were down to two and the newly brought in make up the third. I knew I couldn't complete it because I am going to cook for our trip tomorrow.

December 31, 2020

I was up late, 5:32 am to be exact. Yes, that is late for me. I have half-an-hour to pack the food in individual packs so that it will be easier for us to eat later. I cooked fried spaghetti which is kind of easy and not messy. I also air-fried the curry puffs for breakfast. Managed to pack the food in time for my Subuh prayers, which was great. 

As an after thought, I packed extra clothing for myself but I forgot to pack for daughter and hubby. I wish I did because we end up going to the sea.

The fried sphagetti which we end up eating
at lunch time. A very cold lunch, indeed.

I didn't time the journey from my house to Lumut. We left the house around 8:00 am and we reached Teluk Batik, Lumut around 12:51 pm. There was a delay somewhere near the West Coast Expressway. Yeah we took this new route for the first time. The delay was because there was an accident about one mile away from where we were. Heard a lorry turned on its side. Not really sure but an ambulance that drove the victim confirmed that there really was an accident. By the time we get to the scene the road was cleared. We were stuck on the road for nearly 45 minutes. Something new to my daughter. She was amazed at how patient the drivers were, no one was honking or swearing. Many came out of their cars greeting one another and, yes, I did go out to find out what happen. She was surprised the driver in front of us used the time to smoke and chit chat with other motorists. Actually this is normal situation for me but new to her. 

The mile long jam, maybe that stuck us all for
nearly 45 minutes

The accident did take away our precious time actually. Otherwise we could have arrived earlier and have a better spot at the beach.

When we reached our destination I could sense my daughter's disappointment. She wanted badly to swim in the sea but I told her she could wear my extra clothes that I brought. Glad I packed her undies. So it she was all smiles after that.

We had lunch here. My first selfie and I am not 
good at it

Only my husband and daughter went into the sea. I chose not to because I don't have have extra clothes. I know I can buy from the Souveinor shop but they prefer cash and I didn't bring much cash with me. That is ok. Let hubby and daughter enjoy themselves in the sea water.

We left Teluk Batik to go to the Jetty to Pulau Pangkor to buy dried Anchovies. We end up buying more than just anchovies.

Dried seafood being sold here

More dried seafood and I bought Anchovies

More dried seafood which can be eaten as
snacks and also some dried fruits

Buskers along the way to the Jetty

We couldn't find a decent place for dinner but we end up having dinner around 11:00 pm along the old route on the way home. We finally reach home around 1:10 am. 

That is my year-end roundup for year 2020. A couple of things I must remember to be more prepared when we go on daytrips. Always pack extra clothings for the three of us irregardless. Purchase proper mat for beach use.

This is all for today. Wishing everyone Happy 2021. Stay safe.
