To all cat lovers…

Look at those details 🙂 Had fun with those tricky whiskers and eyes

The finishing product after 1.5 hours (approx) bending over my study table with super sore fingers. Looks pretty good ain’t it 😀

Sadly, not the case 😦 Those cats have missing whiskers, disconnected paws, disfigured eyes, severed leg…. :S Poor cats..I’ve circled in RED.

Since this is unsatisfactory, i did another one 🙂 Rear view of these 5 cats hehehe… (took me another 1.5 hours)

A closer look..i like the tail especially.

All i can say is, this one is perfect or should i say “PURR-fect”. Best cutting i’d done so far!


It was a remarkable weekend. The weather was odd. It has been raining whole year. Strong wind, storm… Got a chance to sneak some tv time while drying my hair last night (read news headlines, i couldn’t hear what those anchormen were muttering). It seems like typhoons were everywhere. At first it was China, now Taiwan. Romania is drowned. Anyway, it was super windy at KYC. Bf was very anxious to windsurf but hehehe..sail broke. Can’t play. He, however, managed to get the other 2 monkeys (Anson, ROC) to “surf” with his surfboard. While they were surfing in the sea, I was stuck at the shore with the ever fateful NDS.

Waited ages for them. Sand flying here and there. I got sand in my eyes, sand in my hair (+ salty, tangled), sand on my slippers..i even ate some sand. When they finally came ashore, I refreshed myself and waited another eons for them to bath. Round 2.45pm, bundled in Anson’s car, we stopped by Tg. Aru for a quickie car wash. Anson finally has a clean, perfumed car now. <- am promoting him..

Since i won some free movie tickets & popcorn set coupons, we set off to watch Hancock. ‘M loving it! Best superhero movie with a twist. “Good job”.

Bundled all up in Anson’s, we went back to the club. Pool table was conquered, so had to make do with just chitchatting by the veranda, discussing dinner plans when they spot a family in distressed over their dead car. 2 girls & a guy pushing a lilac mazda. It was funny, the car was not moving an inch. Hahahahahaha…(take note : i was laughing).

Experienced they were with their car-pushing-scene-at-CP-parking-lot few months back, of course they decided to help. God, they pushed and pushed, not working. They took out their car battery in hope to install to the other car. I don’t understand this part..but it was a bad idea. ROC, bad idea! Asked around for jumper cable, no one has. Apparently those members at the club were not helping either. Sometimes i wonder why men (and women), the richer they are, the less willing they are to help. Snobs… They pushed and pushed again, and thank god, the car finally sputtered to life. Lucky they were, cause storm was brewing and it was already drizzling. Auntie put in the wrong gear for choke start.

So, soaking wet, we were off to dinner. Chicken rice dinner. Guess what? The bf forgotten to switched off his headlamp. (Take note : Remember that i laughed earlier.. Was not laughing then :p)

Haizzzzzzzz…..another dead car. Weather wasn’t helping either. IT’S RAINING CATS AND DOGS. Glad ROC tagged along for dinner. Went home to find jumper cables in ROC’s car, NADA. Made another pit stop at granny’s cause dad said : “granny has”.

So, armed finally with a cable, went back to the chicken rice area. Hooked up the cable and gave the dying battery a jolt. Haizzz…by the time the cars were alive, we were soaking wet. Seriously a tiring day. Went home, bathed, chit chat a little, sleep.

Just when i was drifting off ..TANG TANG TANG.. Poor rabbit of mine, i’d totally forgotten bout her. She made a ruckus by stomping her foot against the cage nearing midnight. When i peaked at her from my window, she was facing my window, ignoring her carrot. Poor Fluffy. She must have been very pissed. Dragged myself up, went outside pat her awhile b4 i hit the sack.

End of the day. Memorable day that’s worth a line or two). Will be updating with my cuttings after i edit those pictures 🙂 So, watch out 🙂

In the meantime…

July 23, 2008

Unable to do work. The boss decided to “donate” my laptop away. Waiting for another from my colleague. She’s still back-up-ing, transferring her stuff to another IBM machine. The IBM looks so boxy and ancient. I’ll be getting another acer. Temporarily, i cant do any of my work…I rather not setup on the desktop, double trouble putting all on the laptop again. Sigh…

So, in the meantime, I get to “snake”. Snake on crosswords, tonnes and tonnes of sudokus, addokus, shapeshifters, food blogs… Am addicted to food blogs. I cant stop reading but ironically, i dont cook either. (i’m ranting too much).

OK, here are the rest of my cuttings as promised in the previous entry.

Bear and cub..with the new mat ^^. Hehehehe cant stop showing u the new mat.

Bear and cub. And an owl on top. U cant see the owl’s eye. The holes i made were too small. I poked ’em with those map pins..

I’m still on bears…so here’s another one.

All these are done with penknife only. I can ditch my scissors. Prolly i should change my blog header. Working with knives (sharp ones) is much much faster.

That’s it for now. I don’t have any other cuttings to show. No time to cut. MUST FIND TIME! (But when i do, i prefer to rest instead of bending over the cutting mat with a penknife).

Busy busy busy…

July 23, 2008

Finally, get some time to update. Have been busy with office work, outings and bbqs. Currently am still swamped with office work. Drat!

Actually I’ve done some cuttings long time ago, just didn’t have the time to upload those pictures and framed it with borders. With those new blades & mat, i managed to cut few in matter of minutes. Lesson learned : always hv sharp blades.

Anyway, here are the photos…

CKS Cutting Mat

The Cutting Mat.. woo hoo!!!

New blades.. RM1.70 for 5. Now i can change those blades like mad hehehe. See those leaves i’ve cut..i did all those in few secs.

Of course, not to forget, new album to put all my cuttings. Just an ordinary stick-on photo album. I’m just sticking everything in. No idea how to decorate yet 🙂 I’ll get back to it when my brain is more active.

The completed cuttings of the bunny above.

Another chinese bunny. I’ll update with bears on the next post. This one is getting too long

Shopping spree!

July 16, 2008

Got crazy and bought myself BLADES…whole bunch of blades.

Got myself a CUTTING MAT. I’m loving it. It’s one of most awesome things man created. I can slash slash slash and it leaves no scar. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe!!!! I likey! Guess how much is it?

Sneak Peek Revealed

July 10, 2008

Have been procrastinating for quite some time. Cant find the time to edit the pics i took of my cuttings. Picnik is slow to load. Wonder what’s wrong with the line these days.

Anyway, here are those bunnieesssss 🙂 MORE BUNNY… this time a bit Chinesey. Took me longer to cut these. I did some changes to the original sketch as well. Omitted the chinese word. No idea what word it was (prolly it meant rabbit)…hehehe shame on me.

Original chinese bunnnnny

Original design. Notice the outlines in blue? Getting rid of the word and replaced with more flowers 🙂

Bunny..see the butt

Got a hard time knifing those little slits on the rabbit’s neck and leg areas…i actually sliced off part of the butt (hehehe but u cant see,can u? :p)

Black version

Another shot of the bunny..

The bunnies in whole..

Did a quickie snip the day before yesterday. Guess whom i’ve snipped?

… (maybe sensitive to your eyes. children be careful)


Snip snip utensils

July 2, 2008

In short, my tools.

In shorter terms, my faithful scissors and penknives.

snip snip..

I think i have more than half a dozen of scissors of various sizes, but only 3 are suitable.

slash slash

Penknives i have 2. Blades..umm..lost it. Currently using a rusty but well-oiled blade. Doing its job well. I have nothing to complain except…


Holding a universal penknife (or any stuff) is always an inconvenience for a lefty. The penknife left its imprint on my finger after 20mins. Hehehe..i think i should wrap the rubber thingy sometimes found on those ballpens or just flip the blade the other way round and hold it “the other way round”. Haiz…sad sad.

Anyway, sneak preview of what i’m doing now. Been dragging it as usual. Heheheh..

can see?

(i notice all my pics were either black/white/yellow/orange…sorry. i’m still trying out silhouettes)
