Japanese Amigurumi Book

Amigurumi Book

Meet my latest purchase from Kinokuniya *love that bookstore*!

There were many choices of amigurumi books to choose from, and this one stole my heart.
The amigurumis are so cute!

The problem is that I do not know how to read patterns in chart form.
And while the book has step-to-step instructions (which looks so detailed!),
they are all written in Japanese only :(.

So, it was the Internet to the rescue!
This is an excellent help to learn to read crochet chart patterns and to recognise words related to body parts.

At the moment, I do not have much time to sew or crochet, but it sure is fun to buy books and supplies for use in Auckland!
*hearts craft shopping*
2 more days to Christmas!

Christmas! Christmas! (is coming soon)

Hi everyone! I'm back again!
I arrived home last night and like the rest of my family, I am now sick :(. Shanghai was freezing cold, and we were not prepared to walk around with the temperature hovering around 0 degrees. Despite that, the scenery was beautiful, and I also enjoyed visiting Nanjing, Wuxi and Hangzhou. Photos to come :D.
Now, I'm waiting for Christmas to arrive, and I'm sure you are too!
Here are some Christmas handmades, and I'll be back very soon with my next update :).

Candy Cane Hearts by Glorious Treats
I'm sorry for being away for such long periods in the past few weeks. My posts have been scarce and short. Unfortunately, I'll be away again as I will be leaving for Shanghai tonight!
It is an unexpected family holiday and I'll be back in 8 days time.
I will definitely be back here, in blogland, for Christmas :)!
Till then, take care :)

Treeson :)

Hey hey :). Hello again!
I'm now back at Kuala Lumpur, and boy oh boy, it's hot here! I have the air-conditioner switched on most of the time, but I still feel like I'm melting in the heat.
Heat aside, something else has melted my heart!
Meet Treeson :)

How can something so small be so adorable? :)
Truly, I am in love with Treeson!
Check out Bubi Au Yeung's (creator of Treeson) Flickr photostream for more Treesons and her other creations! :)

Packing + Papercuts

I'm currently packing all my belongings into boxes and throwing unwanted items out. It is a tiring task, more mentally draining, than being physically challenging. I truly despise packing, and I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that I do not need to go through the same stress next year!

I'm sorry for complaining, but I can't help but express my strong and negative feelings towards packing!
Anyway, the computer will be going into its own box soon as well. And this will be the last time you will be hearing from me in November :). I'll probably be back in at least two weeks time :).

Take care, and I'll see you then :).

Bolts and Bots

Are you ready for a robot invasion? :)
Bolts & Bots is a store on Etsy made up of little polymer clay robots, so cute to look at! There is Darth Vader, Harry Potter, Miley/Hannah robots, but I have to say that my favourites are the original bots, like the iBot and Brain Bot (both pictured below). They are just too cute to resist! You can be the judge :).

The Cutest Objects!

I have the biggest crush E.V.E.R. on The Small Object. The artist behind this outrageously cute store is Sarah, who has boundless creativity and is based in Georgia.

She's Ah-Ma-Zeeng!

Cute postcards :)

Hello, hello! :D
I've finally sat for all my exam papers for the year! So, I'm done with uni for 2009 and I can now relax a little :). Although I have to admit that it is strange not to be studying anymore (at least for this year anyway)! :D
So whilst relaxing (and browsing through Flickr photos), I came across a Flickr photostream with the cutest postcards! They are Japanese illustrated and they are for sale on Etsy. The seller, KawaiiPostcard is based in Osaka :).

Smile + Drink

While I was sick, a friend came over with several bottles of Aloe Vera and Sweet Honey Lemon drinks to help treat cough. When I saw the lemon bottle, I could not help but exclaim, "Oh, so cute!".

Awww... It's smiling at me :). My immediate reaction was to grin back at the bottle cap :D.

I simply love cute drink bottles/cans that make me smile :).
