Sugar High

Darn... These days Blogger just doesn't agree with me. T-T Anyways.... I'm gonna head down to Singapore for the rest of the week. :D Bus to JB is due at 2.30pm. :D


Finally, a chance to travel. If I stay in KL for one more day, I think I'm gonna go berserk. Our research survey is just moving too slowly. We can't start yet, except for searching for extra subjects outside of Sunway Pyramid (which is our main sampling population). Mm... Actually, we could do quite a bit at the moment, like searching for literature (journals, articles and such) relevant to our study, and also learn to use SPSS properly.

But. The young heart needs to feel new things and the eyes are hungry for inspiration!

Well, before I go on yet another pause on the blog, here's some eye candy to satisfy your cravings.

{ Sugar High The Necklace }

{ Absolutely sweet ♥ }

{ As cute as round little bunnies ♥ }

Till next week. Have a kawaii day~!

I Want Candy

Not much happened during my absence from the blog. ^-^" My friend and I were idly preparing for data collection for our research survey. We started scouting for companies that'll grant us permission to perform the survey on their employees. The task turned out to be far more difficult than what I initially perceived. Every company requested to be sent an official letter of some sort, without even first letting us explain what we were doing. We thought of discussing informally with someone in-charge before proceeding to hand in the official letter. But in the end, we were forced to retire for the day. The letter and a summary of our research was drafted. We're now waiting for our supervisor to give us the go before we submit them to each company.

So yeah. Very exciting week huh. >.<

I'm currently bored to death. Somehow, the want to travel to Singapore keeps popping up. I'm already mapping out the route and places I want to go, in my mind. The only obsstacle now is accomodation. Where can I stay for less than RM100/night in Singapore? :(

While goyang-ing kaki these few days, I whipped up a little something.

{ It's huge. It's sweet. It attracts crazy girls like me. }

{ I Want Candy ♥ }

{ Sewn on a pin brooch at the back of the pendant. }

That aside, I'm preparing some stuff for a whimsy jar swap. First swap in 3 years. -___-" I hope I can still do it ok. ^-^" It's fun to stuff goodies into a 400g glass jar, while arranging them in such a way that the jar appears to hold untouchable sweets from heaven. :P

I feel so wasted these days. Needing a little push to really start crafting again. T-T

Pipit Wonderful Market #2

I had a wonderful weekend. :P I went to nose about at Pipit's Wonderful Market at Times Square. There were LOTS of things to see. If there's one thing to improve on, it's probably the location and publicity for the event. Because I walked all the way up to the 7th floor and couldn't see a sign of an event going on. I actually had to go down again to the information counter to ask if there's 'this craft/art/design thingy' going on at the mall? Publicity was good, with news about the event circulating social networking sites like Facebook and blogs. In fact, I saw a column in Saturday's STAR announcing it. :P Great job guys!

{ The venue }

Let's move one to look at the booths. :)

{ Absolutely yummy plate of desserts! All made by this sweet girl. }

{ More yummy goodies! The clear heart-shaped container held resin necklaces with real sprinkles in them! I just couldn't resist - I bought one. :P }

{ Pink and polka dots really go well for a sweeeeet look. :P }

{ Hand-sewn pouches made from Japanese cotton fabric. }

I took a LOT of photos of the first booth and chatted a little with Cherry. :P I just adore her creations. They're demure and sweet, just like the creator herself. :P

After that, I was too busy looking at stuff to take a lot of photos. ^-^"

{ Beautiful pieces created by Agnes. I bought a sparkly crystal bracelet from her and have been wearing it continuously for 4 days since. It's such a pretty thing. }

{ As usual, the goddess of handmades, Evangelione had LOADS of goodies on display. I couldn't get near enough to take a good photo because people were hogging the space to get a good look at her awesome stuff! }

{ Cute creations by Miss Irene! I love the vintage, shabby chic feel of her jewelry and handmade stuff. }

{ I love this booth a lot. The plushies are so cute and well-made. But I kind of forgot to ask for a namecard in my excitement of paying for my purchase there.... -__-" }

{ Original plushie creations by Panda Eyes. Cool set-up! }

{ More goodies by Panda Eyes. Wish I could cart the whole suitcase home. :P }

{ Littlehouse28 's got pretty handmade jewelry. }

{ Yet another booth selling freakin cute plushies. I want them all!!! }

{ Fellow Etsy-ian Kiiss. Love her necklaces! Absolutely beautiful! }

{ Attractive set-up by Ruknoe Bazaar. That's a polka dotted chicken. }

{ Loot for the day. I love everything to bits. }

Don't you wish you were there? :P If you're in Malaysia sometime in September, the Market is going to be held for the 3rd time then. Drop by and have a look. Your eyes will never get tired. :P
