Shopping Spree! :)

Exams are overrrrr! Because I had nobody to celebrate it with, I had to do celebrate with myself instead! :) Haha ah well.

I've been itching to start on a new sewing project after the last backpack, but didn't have any materials so I decided to head down to Chinatown to get some :D

It was my first time going to Chinatown to get stuff instead of being a fake-tourist because I only found out about the hidden textile businesses there recently. And woah did it not disappoint at all (after searching around for close to two hours -_-). The shop keepers are all very friendly and the cloth is cheaper than spotlight haha (which is the whole point.)


Originally I had intended to get some cloth to sew a zippered pouch but I ended up just picking the patterns I liked and buying 1 metre of each. And forgot about getting those zips. The next time I go, I need a better strategy haha. All of them were about $5 - $6 per metre which is quite reasonable I would say. The quality is also very nice actually I would make pillow cases with this cloth but I don't think I got enough for that :( All of them are from Japan I believe. One of the shopkeepers told me cloth from China is cheaper but the quality is not as good and I personally think the designs are not as nice too.


There was a lot of floral-designs there, and not as much of the cutesy designs (like the elephant one). I think I like the elephant one best haha. And the heart shaped one is pretty cute. But still not sure what to do with them haha I'm scouring pinterest for hours just looking for possible projects now. Sigh.

Anchor Your Dreams

This is for irreplaceable people.
This stands for a lot of things.
Don't forget the dreams you once had.
Don't forget to dream.
Let your dreams be your anchor, the reason why you're still going on.
And don't forget that dreaming brought us to unreachable dreams.
Thanks for these four years.

Catch a Falling Star keychain III

For Fumi (芙美), my buddy during the immersion programme.

I've been working out the concept of the silver metal thingums for a long long time. I'm glad I finally have a chance to work it out.

If falling stars weren't meteorites, those silver thingums could be meteorites.

I'm sick.

That's all.
