first and latest

the first post of the year took me 22 days. well, i’ve been busy. so what’s the latest news?

nothing much, really. as i said, i’ve been quite busy at work up till last week… and then it was time for my winter holiday. from the 1,5 weeks of it, i’ve now used 1 full week for:

-tracing a sewing pattern. that’s right, ‘a’, as in, singular. it doesn’t usually take that long for me to trace a sewing pattern (from the paper to the fabric, in this case), but this particular project has quite a lot of pieces that i’m not even sure now if i’ll ever finish sewing it. in fact, the tracing made me so tired already that i haven’t even started sewing it after that. har har.

-cleaning our apartment, as well as doing other house chores. no lazying around here! that also serves as my excuse as to why i haven’t started sewing yet. :p

-having TV Series/movie-marathons on Netflix. don’t you just love Netflix?

-attempting to write more… but ended up merely editing the typos and stuffs on my latest writing.

-going on a cruise to Stockholm… again! it’s just such a handy solution for a quick getaway, especially since it’s winter & nobody usually wants to go on a cruise in winter, which means the cruising tickets are on super cheap sale. 😀 it was my husband’s turn to choose where to go there in Stockholm, so we went to the Maritime Museum. it was quite a nice museum with lots of ship models & their histories, and for my husband it was kind of nostalgic as he used to go there when he was a kid. the fact that his great granddad was a sailor also played a great deal in his interest to ships. 🙂 plus, it’s completely free! (how Indonesian of me, we LOVE anything that’s free, LOL.)

these were taken near the museum area. didn’t get as much pictures this time as it was cold, but actually, this was the first time that we went to Stockholm when the temperature was warmer than in our place in Finland… -3C in Stockholm versus our -13C. yep, we’ll take it! after the museum & lunch, we still had a wee bit time to see the good ol’ Old Town.

that was about it. now i’m gonna enjoy the half of the week left of my holiday, but not before throwing in a bit of fun & excitement.

Moody Monday, a UK based home decor design brand which specializes in contemporary hand-printed wallpaper, fabrics,  & other home accessories, is holding their first ever competition!

the person behind this brand is an old friend of mine, Eliza Kesuma, a super talented & crafty Indonesian living in Scotland. i once posted one of her older products, and before you get confused, let me remind you that the brand Moody Monday no longer has clothing/accessory products for sale. but if you haven’t already, you should check out their home decor products! they’re as quirky & one-of-a-kind as those earrings i posted, so if you’re like me who likes her things to be unique, you’ll definitely love Moody Monday!

my personal fave is the Black Keys pattern from the Secret Music collection, and the Silver on White colour would look JUST PERFECT for my work space! it goes well with my internet alias too, don’t you think? Silverain, Silver on White? 😉 i would looooove to have it as a wallpaper, or even as placemats, but just like the other home decor products on my wishlist, the prices are just a bit too much for my ever-so-thin wallet. i can understand why, though. they’re hand-printed, remember? not to mention the high quality of their products. so of course they cost a lot.

i can assure you that i’m not getting paid by her or her company to promote this competition they’re having, just doing this because i’m a true Indonesian who loves freebies. (who doesn’t??) and this one is a freebie that’s worth your time, because as the winner, you’ll get a roll of their handmade wallpaper plus a matching cushion cover (worth a total of £195). as a 2nd winner, you’ll get a set of 4 placemats (worth £40). this competition applies worldwide, so no matter where you are, if you win the competition, you’ll get these goodies!

to enter, all you have to do is ‘like’ their FB page, and then go to the competition page to fill in your details. do all this before Jan 31st, and then just wait for the good news! yes, it’s that easy. 🙂

good luck for the competition and hope you’ll all have a great last week of January!

  1. Speaking of Netflix, I just lost my “netflix” (aka the neighbour’s wi-fi connection yang gue pake buat dl serial). :)) Nunggu di TV sama DVD lagi deh..

    Btw lagi ngikutin apa aja? Nonton Breaking Bad gak? Bentar lagi juga House of Cards season 2 ya..

    • iya, ikutin Breaking Bad, tapi di Netflix sini cuma baru sampe episode ke-8 dari season terakhir, nyebelin deh. kyknya karna masih diputer di stasiun TV lokal di sini makanya belom boleh ditayangin lengkap sama Netflix, grr…

      trus juga ikutin The Fall, serial BBC yg pemeran utamanya si Gillian Anderson. baru 1 season, dan cuma 5 episode, can’t wait for the second season!

      House of Cards bakal tayang di Netflix tgl 14 Feb (langsung semua episode, as usual, hehe).

      baru itu aja sih, sama nonton film2 lama yg selama ini belom pernah ketonton. 😀

      • Gue season 5 Breaking Bad juga baru sampai episode 2 nontonnya karena belum kelar dl, wifi tetangga dikunci. Hahaha. Season 5 emang 2 parts, 8 + 8.

        Ah, The Fall. Noted. Sherlock?

        Siap2 beli kuota download yg berlaku tengah malam deh ini buat House of Cards, Hannibal, dan sisa Breaking Bad. Hihihi. Biasanya kumpulin banyak dulu baru ditonton maraton abis kerja atau pas libur.

      • iya, Breaking Bad season 5 emg ada 2 bagian, cuma pas kita mulai nonton di Netflix kirain ada semuanya… pas udh sampe ke season 5 baru ngeh ternyata baru bagian pertama doang, siyal. trus ga dilanjut2in pula!

        Sherlock baru sampe season 2 eps. 2. waktu itu sengaja ngga nonton eps. ke-3 dulu karna belom ada berita soal season 3. skarang season 3 udh keluar tapi gue masih belom lanjutin. :p

        klo udh beli kuota download buat tengah malem, sekalian download YM dong! atau kita ceting di mana kek, klo YM tetep ga bisa di-download di kompie lo.
