I am blessed

It's been over a month but it's never too late to show birthday goodies now is it? In random order.

My very first affair with tweed.

I think Sally
read my mind because the little flecks of colour caught my eye just the day before while admiring someone knitting with some gorgeous tweed.

Lo and behold, I have my very own tweed.

Thank you Sally! I think a scarf is in order with this yarn but I am hunting for the perfect pattern for it. I've been knitting and scrapping so many swatches in search for perfection.

Then I was pleasantly surprised with a gift that made it all the way from Singapore. Thank you Regg, it was so thoughtful of you. The cotton yarn is just so soft.

Bday gift from Regg

There was more....two hairbands and a cute set of buttons, all being put to good use =)

Then this arrived in the mail. My very first pair of Addis with a gorgeous load of yarn. Thanks Annie

Bday gift from Annie

I've already experimented with Magic Loop using the needles. Loving it so far. The yarn is wonderful too.

And last but not certainly not the least, the wonderful package from my buddy Mira. Gorgeous cotton yarn, stitch-holders, aromatherapy oil and a face mask.

Bday gift from Mira

Thanks babe. I love everything!

Thank you ladies, you made the day extra-special. And of course I want to thank each and everyone of you who remembered and were kind enough to wish me. Y'all turned a frown upside down.

Also, thank you for the kind comments on the demise of my hamsters. It was good to share.

Further grim news, exams are upon me. Hence the scarce blogging. What's even worse, I can't seem sit still enough to knit anything - I should be talking about studying but y'all know what it's like. But let's just not ruin it shall we?

Anyhoo, here's to great friends, good times, blessings and better year! CHEERS!

Over the rainbow

Last week, two of my beloved hamsters crossed over to the otherside of the rainbow into Hammie Heaven.
I dearly miss them. From the rambunctous family of four, we are now left with Meta (mumsy) and Rinky (the brat).

Ed (dad) and Binky (sweet thang) have left and I was pretty much in shock at losing both of them so suddenly. Ed was old, sure, but Binky was ill. She pretty much refused to eat, drink or do anything despite our best efforts. I just hope she didn't suffer.

Now however, we are focused on keeping Meta and Rinky as happy as ever and they are simply overjoyed at the increased amount of attention they're getting. I can see the happiness swelling in their content tummies.

I tried to get Meta to keep still for a photo but it's a losing battle. But I got an angelic shot of the little one (R) as she napped.

Here's to wonderful pets who make life much more special.

ps. Thanks to Kessa for giving me the nudge to post about this. I pondered for too long making no headway at all.

How the heck? I mean seriously how?

No I am not loco.

I took a Quiz which I thought was like any other. But then - some stuff rang very very true! I iz confounded.

You're Confessions!

by St. Augustine

You're a sinner, you're a saint, you do not feel ashamed. Well, you might feel a little ashamed of your past, but it did such a good job of teaching you what not to do.

Now you've become a devout Christian and have spent more time ruminating on the world to come rather than worldly pleasures. Your realizations and ability to change will bring reverence upon you despite your hedonistic transgressions. Florida will honor you most in the end.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Do take the quiz and tellz me if you iz confounded too.

ps. Who/what is Florida (not the place I assume)?

Recently Lis tagged me with the 8 things about me meme and I've been meaning to do it earlier but the fact that this would be a boring and pictureless post put me off.

Anyhoo, I decided to suck it up and write it.

Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they've been tagged.

8 things about me:

1. I was a rebel in school. Imagine the hate-loathe relationship I had with my teachers. Heh. Teachers those days loved to mentally torture students into submission, I was their Everest. But at the same time, a nerdy rebel.

2. In reference to #1, I made one of my teachers cry.
Why? She went mega-nasty on me for something I didn't do. I won out in the end. The look on my nemesis' face? Priceless.

3. Honestly, I am a nice person. Picking on people for kicks is just wrong.

4. I hate spelling mistakes. They just irritate the crap out of me.

5. I hate geckos. Geckos scare me enough to shriek like a banshee if they catch me unawares.

6. I only knit when I'm in a good mood. I know many who knit to get rid of bad moods etc. but me, I could never. I feel my knitting should only embody feelings of happiness.

7. I love rain and gloomy weather. Big surprise. LOL.

8. I love dark chocolate =)

I tag: Mira, Sam, Ayumi, Jollin and whoever who'd like to join in because I do not know who else who hasn't been tagged! Let me know, I'd love to read more about you.

**ETA: Adding Kitman and Sharon to the tag list. You're it!!
