Hello, it's been a while:)

It's been a while since my last update. I am really having a slow motion mode, after the end of LAPAN at Publika. I do have custom orders from time to time and that what keep me going and awake:)

LAPAN have been invited to participate in Home Living Bazaar at BSC last two weeks and I think maybe that was my last bazaar before taking a month plus break for Ramadhan until Raya.

Having a nap during a day was something I rarely do before, but YES after the hard work it seems I deserve a break.

I was having my workshop at Fabric Fanatic again after a long break. I really have a great time and  realise how I miss to interact with all this passionate people… they help to spark my passion, it was always great and glad that every session just so precious as always.

The plan is to have my workshop at TOA by October 12, so they thought it was a good idea to have some introduction to Little Syam before hand. These are something I look forward next week.
