Taiwan - Part 1

Aww.. it's good to be back home.. The weekend has been so short.. After arriving back in Singapore on Friday.. I had a busy Saturday, going to the post office to post all my backdated items, dashing to the bridal fitting and driving to church for rehearsals (I serve as a backup singer once a month in church)... So by the time Sunday arrive, I just wanna stay home and laze....

Anyways, as promised, here are some pictures of my Taiwan trip.. This is only part 1 as my colleague took some and send them to my work email which I have yet downloaded..

1) Here are some pictures that I took on my way to work from the shuttle (limo/cab)...

2) Here are some pictures that I took at the supermarket.. The fruits are SO HUGE that I can't resist but to take some shots of them.

3) Here's a short clip of this rebranding celebration at the Taiwan office on Thursday. There were musicians playing, taking their walk on every floor..

I am BACK !!!

I just got back from Taiwan!! Yippee! I was good to be back.. I miss my hubby, my own bed and working on my Etsy shop.. The weather was unexpectedly cold. Luckily I got grabbed 2 of my winter sweaters at the last minute before zipping up my luggage.. The wind and the chilliness reminds me of Australia.. Melbourne when I was studying there..

I am still in the midst of unpacking and sorting out my photos.. so I will post them on my next blog post.

Just wanted to share some blessed news.. When I got back from my work trip... I found out that I have 6 sales!! :D *grin grin* And.. I was included in this Treasury by Leelinau! Ooh. I feel so blessed!! I am so energizer to start creating new pieces for the shop! Can't wait to start .. *yawn*.. tomorrow.. ok.. will share more.. tomorrow then..

New Purchase : Calendar 2009

Look what I just bought!! My last purchase before my trip to Taiwan. I have been meaning to get a new calendar for 2009 but did not manage to get down to it for the past weeks. Therefore I was so happy that Etsy Storque did a recent article about Calendars! So I sat down today and went through the series of calendars made by the most talented artists.

This is what I bought! I love the photos by irenesuchocki. They are so surreal and beautiful. The photos are printed against a black background which just makes the photos pop!

Another thing that I found while surfing the sea of calendars is that alot of Etsians are offering pdf calendars which allows you to print them out yourself and send them to your friends. The prices are just affordable and amazing. I am so tempted to buy another one for myself!

Till then.. I better stop shopping and get back to packing... Hope everyone have a great weekend of shopping :)

Taiwan - Business Trip

I am off to Taiwan next week... Luckily it is only for 5 days (17 - 21 Nov). I know I should feel alot more excited because it is a free trip... but because the trip is for work, I am not the least bit excited and I have not packed! Also, I really do not have to go any where given that my wedding is just round the corner and it's year end. I just want to take my long leave, stay at work and work on my Etsy shop!

Sigh... I guess I have to start packing, change money and psych myself for a week away.

Any tips for Taiwan / Taipei? I have been there once on a family trip. Luckily I know the local language, Mandarin / Hokkien. That would save me the language barrier and having to walk around with a lonely planet on hand.. :)

PS : Shop will be open but items ordered or purchased will be mailed when I am back on Sat :)

Sunday Quote : Fear of God

"The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing. When you don’t fear God, you fear everything else." - Oswald Chambers.

This quote touched my heart in a remarkable way and it got me thinking.. It's true that when you fear God.. you really totally do not fear of anything else because God gives you peace & comfort and you trust in Him to make things right.. but when you do not fear Him, you get weary and depressed on worldly things.

New Poll : Which Cluster Earrings Do You Love Best?

One of the reason why I started making jewelry was my love for cluster earrings. They were the first staple design of earrings when I first started out in jewelry making. I simply adore them. Clusters can be made from just about ANY type of materials. I love using Czech vintage glass beads, freshwater pearls & crystals. I don't know why I just can't get enough of them. I think they are so simple and beautiful that they are a staple in ANY woman's wardrobe. You basically can match them with ANYTHING.. from laid back casuals to swanky formal.

Thus my latest poll, trying to find out which of my clusters are the most popular and favorite among the bloggers. You can check out the other clusters designs from my Etsy shop.. Here's the short cut link

Just like the last poll, one lucky winner will win away (postage included) a cluster earrings of her choice. So remember to cast your vote and leave a comment on this blog post to tell me which you have selected! :D
