This week on Shala

I have to be honest with you, I haven't been updating much these days because I've been occupied with work at home and not to mention I don't have a computer to work on. I'm working on getting my laptop fixed but that's dependent on when I have the time to do so. I have to make do with Sharon's old computer for now.

I'll make this short because my latest obsession is waiting for my attention. 

Here is a handmade room my brother made as part of his little project. I helped him out with the screws and lighting. It was tough work but it's quite fun to build stuff, whether its life size or miniature!

Jazelle and her aunt, taken a few weeks back. She's all adorable and 'playable' now. She's learning to flip over and making lots of baby noises these days so we quite enjoy her companion when my sister bring her over.

We celebrated Stephen's 14th birthday the other day with 3 trays of sushi party sets. It's nice to not mess up the kitchen and we're getting the hang of takeout food for parties. There are less dishes to wash so I'm not complaining.

This lot below costs about $50. Quite pricey for chocolates, don't you think? Well, if you're in for quality chocolates, that's the price you have to pay. I recommend Nama White. It's goooooood~

For the past 5 days raya holiday, I was in a cave with 4 seasons of Dexter marathon so I don't know what's going on in the outside world. I hope everyone is having fun out there. Checking back to reality tomorrow, though. But it's been a good 5 days!

Selamat Hari Raya

Wishing all my friends and relatives celebrating this festivity

We're in the midst of summer Olympics right now and I don't know about you but I'm a fan of this kind of events. It's a shame that not many people around me love it like I do. Too bad I missed our first local swimmer's tournament. He was dead last but nevertheless, he did beat his old record. So now I'm looking forward to our two other runners. We all know they won't even strike bronze but we're definitely cheering them on!

And that's Olympics. On this side of the planet, one good news is I finally got a job. Like a real job. Not a part-time that pays daily so obviously I'm very happy and so very ready for the challenge up ahead. I've been in this organisation for nearly 7 months now and I'm still loving every bit of it. It's not everyday you find a job you like so I guess luck has got something to do with it.

Another part of my life is I bought a zumba DVD thinking I would workout everyday. Turned out I only managed to follow 10 minutes of it before I slumped down on the sofa and gave up. My sister, on the other hand, has been following the full DVD nearly everyday since I got it. All I have to say for myself is this body ain't build for zumba. Nuff said.

Also, not many people know this but there is a new restaurant at OGDC in replacement of the old crappy one. We went there for lunch today. The food choices aren't a lot but the food itself is not so bad. Go check it out if you have the time!

Watch out for the next post because who knows what I'm going to write! I'm curious too!
