Counting Down to Wedding - 36 days to go

My soon-to-be-husband Chris left Canada last night to prepare for our wedding day. I have never been involved in any wedding planning in Indonesia, and now we need to do it thousands of miles away from the ceremony location. It's not easy.

The invitation, which should have been out this week, is not yet printed. The invitation company excuses itself by saying that the paper was delayed during delivery. We haven't found an MC yet. Chris still has no idea about the event order for the reception. So he will take care of all those little quirks. He will yell at people if necessary.

Our engagement party will be two days before that. My family will host it. It will be a mini concert from my side of the family. My niece and nephew will sing and dance 2 songs. My cousins will perform a song with piano. My uncle, who is really good at karaoke, will sing us a happy song. My sis-in-law will duet with my little bro on violin. My family will sing a song for me and Chris. My bro and my sis and I will sing a song for our parents (it will be in Chinese -- hopefully I can memorize it).

I am a bit worried about the event back home, but I still have responsibilities here. Oh well... I will just do what I can from here.

Amigurumi: Mario Bros Mushroom

I found out that I had a stash of acrylic yarns left (in the storage), and so I was looking around for patterns/stuff I can use them for. I ended up finding Amigurumi , and of course the pattern I wanted uses the colors of yarns I did not already have. I ended up buying another stash of acrylic yarns in different colors. Thankfully, Zellers had it on sale. In any case, my first Amigurumi project was the Mario Bros Mushroom. I found out (too late), that I was doing the red part wrong. I crocheted from the back loop only, instead of from both loop. Hence, the "head" is taller than it's supposed to be. But since I didn't realize it until after the head was completed, I decided to leave it as it was. Mushy I gave this one to Chris, just because he wanted one. This became another addition to his "work buddies", as you can see below. Chris's "Work Buddies" But bad Chris! He made Mushy to be the bad guy (I think). Chris called this scene "

E-book Reader

I love reading. Specifically, I love reading fictions and mangas. Unfortunately, most mangas I like are not available in Canada. Fortunately, most of them are scanned and translated into English by their Japanese-reading fans. So there are lots of them online, if you know where to look for them. Having lots of manga jpgs means that I can collect the ones I like. But since they are not real books, it's kinda hard to re-read the mangas I have. I don't have a desktop, and the LCD monitor hurts my eyes once I stare at it for a long time. Knowing my addiction for books (and mangas), we did some research and decided to buy Sony Reader PRS-505 . Yup, I got the red one. The reader acts like a glossy-paper book. So even under sunshine, you can read it without difficulties (supposedly... I cannot test this with Vancouver's weather). Some people ask me why I don't buy Amazon Kindle . If you live in USA, you can search books on Amazon.com for free from anywhere (no wireless char
