9 Words Women Use

*** Dari MILIS tetangga....I find this very amusing..:D

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

What I Made Today

Last week, in the exhibition one of my Uncle's friend came and ask if I can make a dress of her 2,5 years old DD. So, I made this today, and add a dupatta (stole) for her since nowadays she like to dress up like her mother (she always wears salwar kameez). Unfortunately, no one make "salwar kameez" for 2 years old. Well, this is not actually a "salwar" but she said that will do for her DD. *mental note: learn to make salwar :D*

So, today, I made this pair for the little girl..she wants something in PINK..:). It's very simple one. I got the Tute for the peasant top from Vegbee. She has the coolest Tutorial in her blog, btw..:D *thanks Vegbee*

The detail:

That's all for today....I have several projects in mind, hopefully will get them done before November.

My sons singing to me while I was writing this:

In the morning, in the morning..we say good morning

In the afternoon, in the afternoon,..we say good afternoon

In the evening, in the evening...we say good evening

In the night, in the night, when there's moon light

We kiss mom & dad Good Night...;)

So..I guess, I say Good Night too ...;)

Hasil Pameran Perdana

I'm officially back after my first ever exihibtion here . Well, it was a hectic week and the exhibition was extended for 1 day. In the beginning I really don't know what to expect. I keep varieties of stuff, from my handmade clothes/bags/pouches to Batik & Jilbab (itung-itung mempopulerkan jilbab disini..:D)

Anyway, it went off well and I got quite good response and even custom order..(YAY!!), some even asked to be informed when I have my next exhibition. InshaAllah, I will have my next exhibition on November, December and March 2009.

What I learnt from my fellow sellers are:

1. Most of them are homemakers who's doing their business from home. I met one lady, she must be over 60 years old. Her stall was opposite mine. She's selling Mekhala Chadar (Assamese Traditional Dress). She has her own boutique, she drives around her self (in this part of India this is something commendable!!). she teaches village girls to do embroidery and other needleworks. She's doing around 10 exhibition in and out of the city.

2. There's always someone who appreciate your handmade stuff.

well, in the beginning I'm not sure if someone even take a look at the dresses or bags that I made. And I was so happy that somebody ACTUALLY liked it and BOUGHT it ha ha ha...

3. Always come prepared..hehehe...I mean, like other details: white sheet to cover the walls & tables, nails, hammer, old bed cover to cover you stall at night..he he he...

I am afraid I didnt take much So, here are few fotos that I took....

Just a little up date

These few days been busy with my first ever handycraft & handloom exhibition. It's on for 1 week from 8th to 14th september from 10 am to 8 pm. So it's kinda hectic days for me. First days was going ok and a bit tiring, since I haven't been "working" for the last 6 years hehehe...anyway, it's fun. I got to meet lots of new sellers who mainly ladies who run their business from home just like me and they do exhibition from time to time.

Actually we have lots of exhibition in here. We have this Haat call NEDFI haat which exhibit craft from North East Indian states. Different groups will hold the exhibition. SO if I want to join certain group I have to approach the committee. It's not that easy and at time needs recommendation from senior members, which is in my case, I was introduced by one friend of my MIL.

Yeasterday was good, cos few people really like what I made and some even give custom order..(YAY) I learnt one thing "never underestimate your talent" he he he...The dress that I thought no body will take a look at it, was sold, even few bags & purses...:D

so, friends, wish me luck for today...I'll update the story later again....:)

Miss you all

Happy Teacher's Day

Ehm..sebetulnya agak telat postingnya karena di India Teacher's Day jatuh pada tanggal 5 SEPTEMBER.

So sebelumnya, to all my teacher friends


Di India sini, Teacher's Day di rayakan di sekolah-sekolah dengan meriah. Setiap murid membawa kartu, bunga atau kado kecil lainnya utk guru-guru mereka. Pada saat ini toko-toko kartu (Archie's) selalu penuh dengan orang tua murid ataupun anak-anak sekolah/kuliah yang akan membeli kartu ucapan.

Tahun ini di sekolah Rizqi & Raihan, gurunya menulis pesan supaya membuat handmade cards *untungnya emaknya suka liat postingan teman-teman yg membuat handmade kartu *

Seperti biasa pemberitahuan sudah 2 hari sebelumnya, tapi dasar sok sibuk, saya lupa baru ingat kalo ada "tugas" membuat kartu tadi. Well, sebetulnya si anaknya yg harus bikin, tp karena udah malem & they will make a mess instead of making the card, jadi emaknya yg ngebut bikin kartu ha ha ha....setelah bongkar-bongkar "our small room" , nemu deh kertas kuning. Tapi mau diapain?? Spidol ada juga udah "setengah habis", yah tp di paksain masih bisa lah buat nulis. Trus telp. Bapaknya anak-anak, tolong di print-kan tulisan Happy teacher's day deh pokoknya. Setelah itu giliran bongkar-bongkar koleksi pita di ruang jahit a.k.a dapur , nemu beberapa pita yg lumayan bisa dipake & juga fabric glue buat nempelinnya.

So, setelah sejam berkutat dengan perlengkapan tersebut diatas, ini dia hasilnya:

Setelah membuat kartu ini, saya semakin salut & kagum dengan teman-teman yang seakan ngga kehabisan ide membuat kartu & papercraft lainnya...
