My Preoccupation

Goodness, it's been weeks since I last posted.

Several images on backlog, just been preoccupied of late. Not to mention the two weeks of festive Hari Raya or Eid celebration, the best movers during the open house, mini mince pies.

I finally decided to take out my MacBook out of its box after it's been sitting there for several months and currently its an elaborate browser until I get my Adobe Creative Suite installed. And its also currently my gaming platform after my wonderful other half bought me Mystery Case Files: Madame Fate I've been hankering, finished it already, replaying it again. Really good stuff.

And several net sites been keeping me occupied, I can't seem to get enough of them...

I just received an order for an engagement book yesterday and the client wanted it for this Sunday... I'm not big on rush jobs, it's draining but I'll do my best at it.

Just finished the layout for the programme book for the convocation that was suppose to be for the end of this month but because the university decided to have theirs on the same day ours got postponed to the middle of next month. I need to get it out of the way anyway because not only it need to be sent for printing, next week I'm on a course at the civil service institute, won't be in at work at all, and right after that I'm on leave for two weeks! I'm hoping to be able to head down to Singapore to pick up some supplies and visit a couple of friends.

Yesterday I walked into that scrap shop at the mall and had a heart attack when I saw how much a bone folder cost. Mental! It can't cost that much... I was fortunate a friend in Greece sent me a real bone folder, what bone I don't know, and I have picked up several on my trips to Singapore and they cost way cheaper. Bone folders are one of my indispensable tools. 

Got a new pack of needles for book binding, now book production can start again.

There's a fair I'd like to participate in only I don't know if I'm going to be around for it... I don't know if I'm going to have stuff for it!


  1. Oooooh Typies! I too am obsessed with type/typefaces (and am annoyed by the word fonts.)Thanks for the link!

    Love how the BAG packaging came out with your woven ribbon! Wow!

    Have a great day!

  2. Oh, combine type and blind embossing and I would swoon! Evenings can be spent just looking at the various typefaces available to download :-p

    Thanks Cathe, I make my grand aunt proud, she's the one who taught me decades ago how to weave them. I still have yet to bank in the cheque... heh...


Love to hear any feedbacks so I can keep on improving my work...
