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.

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…

pain!

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)

Scissors affair

June 23, 2008

Finally stepped foot in 1Borneo yesterday evening.. From the newspaper, it looked like midvalley. Sad to say, it’s much smaller, well, at least to me. As it is still under construction and most shops under renovation, it was dusty inside out. It’s stil FARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR from being a “lifestyle hypermall“. Hopefully when it’s all done, it will look much more like one. Oh, before i forget, i have to tell u bout the parking bay. Uber annoying. Wonder who designed it.

The only shop i seemed to be interested in was Daiso. Great japanese store..all stuff priced at RM5 (i seriously hope this is true). Saw lotsa scissorssss…. When i say lots, i mean lots. There are scissors for papers, for sewing purposes, for the kitchen, for trimming flower, beauty purposes and for fishing. No, u read correctly, for fishing. It’s cute. Rounded head with a little hole… 😀 Never knew such scissors existed. Prolly it’s for cutting nylon strings..now i know where to get one when i’m out fishing and is desperately in need of a pair scissors hehe.

Anyway, spotted a pretty, slim-figured scissor . Will be mine soooonnnn. It’s one of those pointed beauty scissors. Easier to reach into those tricky and tiny areas. The current one i have is curvy..not a very good choice.
