December Workshop @ Lapan

Had such a wonderful Thursday yesterday…I am going ahead with just one student for morning and afternoon session. I really want to see if things work out by having my first workshop at LAPAN. With traffic that smooth sailing, day kind of pleasant and relax to me comparing to the adraneline rush normally I have handling more than 10 students per slot. I am pretty picky when it come to comfortable.

I always feel bless to have partner like beading.my or fabric fanatic and being comfortable and clique is so important to me. And I love having my workshop at different places too.. I enjoy to experience new places, and share that with my students.

The feedback for my workshop going to be low for Dec, and I expected that already. But I want to give it a try if LAPAN is a good venue to organise my workshop for the following 3 months . If not I can always collaborate with my previous venue.

I had queries, that public transport are difficult to hop in to Publika. But at the same time I am tie-up with duty schedule, and my time a bit limited for the following 3 months. Having this shop are such a commitment to me. I even quit my part  time job as a lecture which I like it so much just to make sure that this LAPAN collaboration project will be succeed, and definitely work harder than before. So far I feel the strong feeling of self belonging there. Being part of Art Row resident was pretty awesome.

I had enjoyable workshop yesterday, at the same time I analyse the best structure for my workshop too. Elaine C came all the way from Kelang…she is so easy to manage..she paint in her pass time, and her work of detail reflects to books she made. I am so glad in every workshop I held, I be able to meet a wonderful people..I can't be blessed than my current situation.

Sawing time 


Don't worry; no one actually get hurt at the end. We just follow the script given by our photographer
I cancelled my Friday workshop because I thought there are no feedback but then it was ok,  I could  concentrate on some custom orders at home …I just had read my email at night when I came back, that there are 3 last minute application came in.. But then I cancel it anyway.

 I am so looking forward for Saturday. And If you happen to dropby on Sunday at FUYOH Bazaar, come to LAPAN, do say hello to me ya:)

Urgent Job

Yesterday, I had unexpected desperate phone call asking if I could make her a wedding guest book for her wedding this weekend... WHATTTT???? which mean I only have overnight to finish it, because the guest book need to be sent to Kuala Lipis.

Oh dear, with all deal done on the spot this was the result I came out with.



Got to rush it anyway because I am taking a small family break tomorrow till weekend. Looking at amount of stock still need to be done, I shouldn't go, but arrangement, flight ticket and accommodation have been done long time ago.. Perhaps by looking at the sunset and the sunrise might give some inspiration, because the truth is I've been overworked, since last two weeks.. Unfortunately not for the shop but custom orders of dozen guest book, to be sent locally and internationally.

I am glad all the order have been delivered, so I this getaway was a small treat I desperately need before a busy week next week. And YES opening of the shop going to be next Friday the 14th.. please dropby... I definitely sure it going to be super great:)

Hope you have a fabulous weekend:) //syam

Hello December:)


Time really flies, and Dec are here to say Hello. It was so far a very challenging year to me, and such a very meaningful year too.

It was always in my dream having a shop of my own, and soon Dec 14 is almost in the corner where I am going to have mine, one important list going to be ticked from my list to do. I thanks Allah for the best year of my life. It was not such a big deal to some people, just a space shared by 3 /4 people and the commitment just for a 3 months but yet an opportunity to be able to be part of Art Row Resident was such a big, huge deal to me.

SO peeps, look for me at Art Row from 14 Dec onward for the next following 3 months.

Oh dear.... I still have much things to create, I do not deny that  am having bit of nervous, because the time left kind of occupied with custom order I received, but I do not complaint... It still a job to me and I always grateful for every rezeki I had. I just wish I had 48 hours per day instead of 24 hours.

2012 indeed such a beautiful journey to me. I will say I am truly happy and bless in every project I involved, every single effort I made. I met up with many good, interesting people along the way, in every workshop I held, every bazaar I joined and total stranger from blog and FB.

I make a few good friends too. It was quite strange how life been planned. We meet up with many people that helping us a long the way of difficulty, even drama in life. I had so many common friend, a few good friends and very little best friends. I supposed in this age I do not want any drama, any hidden agenda anymore and I will keep it just the way it is. It really difficult to find a true friend that always give a shoulder to cry on, doesn't take us for granted and doesn't see us as an opportunity. A true friend complementing us in many ways just like a sugar and coffee, this one hard to find, and I will treasure till the end of my life. 

For all above I will always grateful, 2012 been such a great journey so far.. I am so looking forward to the shop opening and 2013 for more adventurous ride:) //luv luv syam
