Shopaholic TV addict fell off (or isit on) the wagon.

Looks like I fell off the blog wagon! (Or as Seinfeld would guess, is it 'on' or 'off' the wagon?)

I've been rather busy with lots of things, including trying to piece together my Barcelona skirt (not working out well cos I think the material I bought was wrong), practising my golf swing (the more I practice, the worse I get), watching TV (Spell Cast, Supernatural, CSI Las Vegas, etc, etc), and sleeping a bit too much.

I'm feeling rather relieved and happy today, as I have just booked C's birthday party venue! She is quite excited about planning it, getting goody bags and all that fun stuff! Me too!

A thought has been floating around in my mind. Are there such things as 'cheap' hobbies? Maybe it's because I'm a shopaholic, every new hobby I go into seems to involve a fair amount of shopping. I wonder why?

Tonight, I'm meeting some old friends for dinner. We got to know each other at our former workplace, and we've known each other for 8 years now. It's always fun when we get together and I'm really looking forward to it.

And after dinner? The Ghost Whisperer beckons!! :)

ETA: We're headed to Bintan again next weekend! Pray for good weather for us, please! :)

Project Runway

heheh...that's how I would like to describe my first attempt in recent years in sewing something for myself! Using Amy Butler fabric and a pattern from Skirt a la Carte, here it is:

By the way, the book is also available in Kinokuniya, where i grabbed it at 20% off last weekend. The finish of the skirt is far from perfect, and I basically 'winged' it at certain parts due to my lack of understanding of Japanese. Anyway, I must say I am rather happy with my effort!

On to other things, I had some frustration dealing with some of TVC's suppliers from the US of A. Delayed shipments, incorrect email addresses, lack of responses, voicemails... I am glad that I managed to get something done last night/this morning, although it meant I had to be awake from 4 am!! Now that everything's settled (more or less!), I'm really looking forward to next Saturday's Open House!
