I was discouraged (slightly) earlier today, during the class because I had to side-sew (jahit tepi, dont know whats the term in english) and although I practiced gazillion times beforehand, I suck. Haha. The instructor told me last week that I can just send it (the pieces) to a tailor and get it done... its cheap and it saves time and of course, a better finishing.
But then again I told myself that this is a learning stage and I myself want to understand things, logics and make mistakes. I rather have something that will be a 'nostalgia-producing' memento and that I can smile and be 'slightly embarassed' at and say "thats my first outfit that was fully sewn by me". So there. (Cheh, so drama)
I do think that I can make a lot of shit if I have one at home. (I have one already, but its old and need some repairing. I rather keep that for home deco purpose ;P )
Maybe Ill get one soon. It felt therapeautic, sewing.
*MIFA is happening next week. I dont know if there will be invites coming in for layout designers (wishful thinking) to attend any of the shows. Haha. Im not a fan of being an event attendee and I dont dig stuff from local designers (yes, I admit. some are great though) but I feel like going for a show or two just to observe the pieces. so semangat, me.
*I need to hit the cinema soon!
*Readin Chuck Klostermans "A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas". Some articles are nice and some are not. Im lost most of the time due to the fact that it is heavily filled with stuff that Im not familiar with, but I read it anyway. I like the way he writes. I still have some books, fresh and virgin still from the MPH sale few weeks ago.
*Im longing for another trip. Bangkok was fun (yes it was) but I need a relaxation type of getaway now. My boss has been feeding me sites to several locations (local and outside... outside meaning Thailand - budget y'all). I told my cousin about planning a road trip to Kuantan since his parents just erected a house near to a beach (its not a beach house i think, hence my phrase). That would be a quick and short getaway. But we have not set a date yet since Im out of cash.
*I feel like picking up photography once again. I might get a DSLR for myself once the bonus hit me. MIGHT. (shit, and sewing machine? wtf) Yes, I might. A better compact camera is another option, since I dont have to worry about bulk when travelling around. (so many things to buy!)
