Yay! My colleague and I have completed our knowledge sharing session with the office (basically conducted an interactive presentation session). :) Feels good to finally get it over with. Pretty good response from the session participants, I must say. Hehehe...

Oh, my colleague and I attended a 2-days "Composite Materials & Structures" training at a local university last week (been so busy this past week, I've not updated this little blog of mine. :p). It was definitely interesting, in a for-research-purposes kind of way i.e not too much punch on industrial applications. ;) However, any training session is resourceful and eye-opening.

Ooops, gotta stop here. It's actually office hours and I just wanted to take a short break after the sharing session. ;)

My sister's triplets practically "terrorized" my brother's home a couple of weeks ago, when we were having a family gathering. Hehehe... It was a fun yet extremely tiring experience. ;)

The pic below was actually taken whilst chasing them out of the kitchen (pit stop at the kitchen table!)...
They've all been given an "extra" haircut from their dad, due to minor so-called "technical" error. Haha! ;) Still, aren't they just adorable (and cheeky-looking???)? <3

A little garden

My own little garden... I simply mixed and matched the beads and charms with the adorable flowers-and-butterflies metal bookmark charm. :)

1431 Hijrah

Today's the new year in the Islamic calendar. 1431 Hijrah. :)

I pray to God that this new year brings new spirit, to get me through another year. The past year has been wonderful, terrible, miscellaneous. :p So many downs intertwined with the many ups. In a way, my life motto(s) is simple.

Life goes on. Learn from experience. Don't be afraid to take chances. Live, Love, Laugh, Have Faith. Whatever happens, remember God, family, friends.

Life doesn't always go the way we plan it or want it to be, but just make the best out of it. Like Albert Einstein once said, "Life is like riding a bicycle. In order to keep your balance, you have to keep moving". :)

I've won two wonderful giveaways! :D

3rd prize for Little Maketto's "Christmas Comes Early Giveaway" and "Made For You By Mrs. Woo". I'm so happy, I can hardly believe I won. (Note: I'm usually not too lucky at winning things, so these winnings are a real boost for me, especially when I'm usually feeling stressed with this-and-that these days... Hehe).

OK, now I need to go to bed. Working in the morning... Zzzzzzz...

First Step Photo Vinyl Wall Art...

Gosh, I've pretty much stumbled on another of my fave things over at Grosgrain's... This time, wall art! Hehehe... I live in a rented place, so I basically can't really do much with the walls. So, wall art (stickers, as some may simply call them) are pretty much a good option for decorating my lonely walls. ;)
Anyways, First Step Photo is having a great giveaway, and I sincerely hope I'm valid to join it (and perhaps win!). :) Aren't these nice?

More are on their Etsy shop... Me likee very much - "Lady Bugs Sticker Decals", "Swirl Whimsical Tree With Birds", "Birds on a Line Wire", "Bubble and Ring Funky Whimsical Tree", "Large Field of Cut Flowers", "Butterfly Pack"... :D
