The Only Way to Become Amazingly Great at Something.

 "So here’s the thing: don’t get discouraged if you’re just starting out. Have fun, like we all did in the beginning. If you have fun, you’ll learn to love it, and THAT’S when it clicks. When you love something, you’ll want to do it all the time".


oooooh..this is very true..from loobylu

Beautiful Thing!

Not a creation of mine, just my personal collections and gift.. They are beautiful...dun you think so?

Cleansing Continue...

I've been eating mostly salad this few day...avoiding solid food like rice, meat...just tofu...a bit of kuih raya.. and I feel like my weight become lighter..and kind of feel good at the same time especially on my tummy area. Today since I am out of lettuce, and the market seems out of lettuce too, I am experimenting with Chinese Cabbage, Celery, Gerkin, Carrot, Cucumber and I add on slice of chicken with thousand Island dressing...and diet will end up with jogging in the afternoon with Gigi at Ampang Hilir.


Focusssssss...try to..:)

Book Restoration

I did my spring cleaning and found this 4 books that I am supposedly to do some repair job longggggg time ago. This old kitab is owned by Kak Yah..she asked me to help doing restoration by fixing the cover and see what else I could do about it. The kitab was in pretty bad shape...worm/has eaten most of the pages and it full of dust.


Using the left over purple paper/fabric from my guest book project for cover,  this is how the final kitab looks like. It was like an overdue debt that finally been paid ..phewwww.

Food for Thought

barra cafe, pandan prima

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Dolltopia Family

Dolltopia Family:)

I just realise that my Dolltopia family has grown up for more than 10 characters now. All are one of a kind, hand made with attention of detail made of quality, mostly cotton fabric. Each character comes with certificate of adoption. Email me at littlesyam@gmail.com should you interested to adopt.

Intensively Create, Create, Create and Create

Hello all, I am back to my normal routine and as for Raya break as usual, time to get together with all siblings, but unfortunately I won't be able to share any shot here...some one, or may be me had accidentally deleted all 2000 pcs picture in my D70 Nikon...mmmm

Kind of amaze,  I am totally ignore the fact my archive of precious pictures has gone, erased totally, well maybe not yet till I need to use any of those pictures. Or probably I just do not want to think about it because I am incapable, nothing that I can do about it.

Here I would like to share my latest illustration where these characters will be translated to silkscreen mould for a few projects such as..hanging mobile character, accessories, book cover, maybe bag.... we will see how it goes... will update you soon with more visual/pictures. Soo till then...stay tune:)

Have a Nice Break & Happy Hari Raya:)

I am taking a long break and will be away from my computer till tuesday. Fasting month flies really fast..and all muslim will celebrate raya either on Thursday or Friday.

October going to be a busyyyyyyy month for me. Going to participate in Japanese Bazaar on 31st October, and American Bazaar on November. Need to speed up doing my craft...and there are one or two freelance graphic jobs on October need my urgent attention plus help my friend with proposal of merchandising items for local theme park plus my own proposal for place of interest after raya....pheww. Do not forget my book binding on 2 & 3 of October. Those projects will make me busy till end of year.

Got to turn down offer to involve in exhibition at Abu Dhabi:( I have a difficult time making decision because Atie, nanny, friend, sister cum helper will comeback to Indonesia for good on 31st October, the same day I suppose to fly. I will definitely miss her buzzing around...her food, and shoulder to cry on. And it not going to the same without her presence, since she has been with us for 6 years ++. From now on..I am going to be extremely busy with my own project plus housework...

Hello There:)

Hi, I've been so occupied with  jobs and there are also many things happened lately at one go.


I am helping out a good friend of mine, Lina to do the packing of hamper for Hari Raya. We are so busy doing the tagging, decorating and even deliver those hamper to the Platinum and Gold Enrich MAS member. Get to know Kak Linda that is sooooooo good in cooking. The cake was packaged in a very nice box designed by Lina.
Gold and Platinum Hamper filled with homemade dates and walnut cake.
Managed to snap beautiful flower from Kak Linda garden ...sooo pretty.
And hey I missed to wish all of you Happy Merdeka Day...but I dun think it is too late to do so...my facebook status stated: "The one who thinks freely, thinks well... Happy Merdeka Day Everyone!"
Merdekakah kita???
Life nowadays is not as it used to be 10 years back, I hate reading newspaper where it full with load of issues that only make me more stress. YES I believe in the freedom of speech, express whatever we would like to say, but do think wisely before you let out your thought. As simple as receiving email that might touch the sensitivity of other ethnic, choice that you have is whether you going to spread/forward those to another 5 peoples and another 5 people will each spread/forward it to 5 other peoples. As a responsible individual, we have the power to filter all this nasty information that might caused chaotic or hatred.... so start thinking for all this small thing especially when we know that the source is not clear...


We live in a country and be friend with others from different background, opinion, race and religion. Aren't we all BERTUAH?? So do respect each other...just being wise. I can never imagine my life without a good friend like Uma or Amanda or Mary or Mei or Ah Ching or Gigi or.....we are all sooooo BERTUAH. The figure of 53 can never give any impact without us to reflect and embrace the truth meaning behind it.... forget about celebration or  political view, merdeka is  all about you and your inner. You got to be truly understand the perspective of being merdeka... phewww


I've attended a funeral of sweet Kristen Low the other day...she was a chief editor at my previous job place. She got a cancer all this while, where she always complaining of stomach ache, whenever we enjoying our Nasi Lemak breakfast at pantry. I left the company before that, but through friend I get to know that when she found out about it, it was already at stage 3 and it took her only 1 year before she's gone. Really sad, but she's such an angle that have a good heart and always surrounded by people that love her dearly...At my last look at her, I am somehow so happy that she looked so glowing, beautiful and peaceful. May you rest in peace my dear sweet Kristine. 


We are somehow will go through the same process. We might went through a different pace of life but we are all heading at one ultimate direction. Whatever it is..I personally believe we are here for a reason..so the ending will be measured by how we behave...So be nice:) It is not hard to do so.


I've never write this long. I am always the person with so little words...but..moment like this make me so grumpy ...ha ha. Have a great day whoever you are :) xoxo
