Moving on to a New Job in 2019 Journey

Long time no see and apologies for the late post. Wondering what I’ve been doing lately, I been busy with my new job.

I’ve shifted from office to customer service job, is a education line. I’ve sign the contract and started working on 1st march 2019.

What is the difficulties of moving to a new job. Well, to me is hard cause of my families situation, and I need a job to cope my finance. You will defiantly have a lot of things to think thru before you made a decision. Best is to discuss with your family member. To get some solution or what type of job to find.

Job is alway boring. I feel every Job is the same. Especially for office job. Some might not have much things to do. For small position like me. Data entry and etc.

Now I shifted to customer service education line is harder for me for sure, but I have to do it. For the sick of my family and finance to cope with. It’s challenging for me. I’ve been working office job all along with different companies. Of cause will have good and bad companies. That’s why I been shifted and changing a lot of jobs.

Now currently I still on probation term. So I’m doing my best 😦 Even though, to be honest I still prefer office job.

Firstly, is the working hours. I did get regretted choosing this line. But I just gonna make it without a choice. Basically is more on the working hours. Cause I chose the 6 days week and with 1 day off.

First day of work is super dam stress. Cause I feel I have lesser time to do my stuff. And I was hoping after 1 year contract I can change a 5 days work.

My advise is don’t quit your job so easily. If you are at a comfortable zone and flexible working hours. Don’ quit your job so fast.

If you are having financial difficulties and you need more finance to cope, do get a part time job to cover.

If you are good with changing job, and very sure for it. It’s okay to go ahead. Make the right choice and go for it.

HAPPY WORKING!

Sewing: How to Sew a Kids Envelope Pillow Case

Hello! I’m back with a sewing blog post on How to Sew a Kids Pillow Case. So, recently I’ve been busy with other things, I apologise for a late long post. Let’s go straight to the main thing, So my niece keep want me to sew a pillow case for her and is hello kitty printed. HAHA. Can’t help it, she just love hello kitty. Okay, firstly, I use her pillow as measurement. What I did was I took her pillow on the fabric and cut out the size that I want according to the pillow.

Step 1:

Align your fabric, and fold to half. Then use the pillow to measure and cut out the size that you want.Gives 1 or 2 cm seam allowance on all 3 sides. So it won’t turn out to be so tight.

Step 2:Once cut out, it will look like a half folded piece.Now have to adjust the piece of fabric.

Turn to wrong side of the fabric, Take one side of the piece, shift a bit longer to make the envelope cover.Now have to adjust the piece of fabric. Take one side of the piece from the top, shift a bit longer, fold down a few CM to make the envelope cover.

Step 3:Once adjusted, take the body side put over the top which is the envelope cover and Pin it.Step 4:Before you start sewing, make hem on the envelope cover and the body edge.Step 5:Done with heming, you can start sewing all the 3 side. Remember to do a back stitch for the starting and ending edge.And you are good to go! Try it and adjust if needed.If you want to try sewing a pillow case, this is the beginner basic steps to start off with.Feel free to shared with me your finished project in the comment!No promise! but I will try my best to do up more tutorial sooner as I can! HAPPPY SEWING!

5 D 4 N to Phuket Island Itinerary 2018

Hello! Good day everyone! Here is my post on Itinerary for Phuket 2018.

We have chosen this hotel, Tiger Complex Hotel which is located @ Patong area. So we took Jet star flight, morning flight 7am, and we depart about 11 plus. 

Day 1: Randomly Walking around Patong area

img_5210img_5201

So once we reach the hotel we went to get some necessities at Big C which is at Juncelyon mall. We decide to just buy it here so we don’t have to bring our own. But if you want to bring of course can get those travel pack.

Apparently, there is nothing much to shop here, there is some night market around the area which is the Bangala street. Just beside or behind the juncelyon. There is two mall here, one is the Phuket mall and juncelyon mall. Phuket mall is like Robinson and the things there is quite pricey. Is like Orchard Road in Singapore.

4ce71d9e-3b40-4359-ba0a-e06e887db30f

After our short shopping, we went to Patong Beach which is just in front of Bangla street.

We decided to just walk towards to freedom Beach but we stop halfway and see the sun was going down soon so we took a cab back down to Patong.

3a72d32b-e1a8-4380-bb05-2585fee4baaacdaf5139-7b05-4513-94ba-7312ed18ce75

We get to see the nice view from the top while walking up the sloppy slop. We recommend if you want to go Freedom beach, need to took a cab there, cause there’s no way you can walk there. Is way too far.  Cos is too scary to walk up even we follow the map along the way. So when we got a cab, the driver was nice enough to tell us that the beaches were closed at 5pm or 6pm can’t really remember but is about this time. So we are so lucky! That we stop and go back down 😂. Thanks to the driver.

The driver was asking whether we need to book a taxi the next day activity. We told him where we going and he gave us a reasonable price, 1600 baht for four pax from our hotel to Vanich farm than go to Old Phuket Town then Central festive mall and Chiliva night market then back to the hotel. So 1 person is about 400bhat. 

So we are back at our hotel, after a long day we are hungry and we ate the seafood stall just opposite our hotel. Is at Bazzan Market. The food there was not as bad, still acceptable. Cost about 200baht for 5 dishes, they also have Zi char style. We order a morning glory which is Kang gong, pork minced and a Tom Yum soup for sure!

After that, we went for a short shopping and exploring at some night market.

Day 2 – Snorkelling at Phi Phi Island package

8d151b55-a8dd-4418-9373-104c13570616

For this package, we have a bus to send us to the Pier and gather with the instructor first and brief us on the tour.

So we are heading to 4 Island, PhiPhi Don, Khai Nok, Phi Phi Lay, Khai Nui. All this 4 location is in the package. As I mentioned in my previous post.

We will be going to Khai Nui Island for first snorkelling, last for 40 mins. I would say if you don’t really know how to swim, please don’t try this. Because is a very deep sea area. Of cause, they will provide you safety vest and snorkelling equipment.

Then heading to Phi Phi Lay and sightseeing Loh Samah Bay, Pileh Cove, Viking cave. 

7c452c6a-e432-4a48-9420-5a7e35abe8f6

Phi Phi Island really has a lot of nice sight viewing. Especially the sea.. feel the nice air and beautiful scenery away from stress at work. Such a nice and best way to relieve stress and holidays.

a157d263-934b-432c-926b-faa4d2ab883b

After long swimming, heading for lunch. They will prepare a meal for you @12pm -1pm. @Phi Phi Don After the first snorkelling, you will get very hungry and the food is really delicious. So satisfying. They will have Halal food too, so not to worry without food. 🙂 The place is like a canteen. Feel like a school camp old days. Ha Ha!

Next, we visit Monkey bay and then depart at Khai Nor Island at the last station.

110867fd-a792-4394-838f-21ed321c650b

Snorkelling @ Khai nor Island 

This is the second snorkelling location, this one is better, cause it not in the deep at all. And I get to see fishes around the sea.

Beautiful clear water and nice scenery. Remember to take some shot if you went there.

And, that’s the end of our tour at PhiPhi Island. Take about 1-day duration. So, if you decide to go for the tour, plan out 1 day for this package.

Before we went for dinner we head for a 30mins leg massage just beside the Bazzan Market. 200baht for 30 minutes leg massage. Reasonable enough to try out and I can say it’s not bad. (sorry I missed out taking a photo of the shop. But you can see around the street area there is a few shops and also the same price.

Day 3 – Vanich Farm->Old Phuket Town ->Central Festival Mall -> Chiliva Night Market

We went to Vanich farm from 11am. The driver was here to pick us up. We have a great experience there! And I can see it’s worth to go. So we reach there about 12-1 plus. And it was a sunny day! Cause we thought it will rain according to the weather but surprisingly it’s not raining.

Once we reach there the person in charge explain to us everything, like the package and all. So apparently they have 2 packages, one is cheaper and the other one is 1300baht for 1 per pax. It depends on you which one you want, as for an experience to become a real farmer for one day. It was fun to learn things from the professional farmer who works here since he was young. They are all very nice people there especially when they guide you along the way to make sure you don’t get injured.

Do check out my another post on Vanich farm Day tour if you would like you would like to know more.

After a whole day of the tour at the farm, we went to Old Phuket Town, from Vanich farm took us about 1/2 an hour to reach there. We went there and took our lunch and it’s started to rain so we turn back to next station cause we guess there is nothing much there to shop. We did buy some T-Shirt with cute dog and cat printed designs that attract us and its just 120baht. We are so animal lover! Ha Ha! The things there seems to be cheap, we get guys boxer 2 for 100baht. Not bad at least is something that we wanted cause we didn’t bring many clothes. So we shop awhile and went to Central Festival Mall and then again is nothing to shop there cause the mall is like our Orchard Road, selling expensive things. Food most probably will have something that you can try!

And lastly, is the Chiliva Night Market. The night market is quite small and again they have more food than things to shop for. Basically, there is nothing much either. I did buy some earrings with very cheap price about 25baht if I not wrong. My friend tried their seafood there, quite nice and tasty. Most important is fresh.

After a long day, heading back to the hotel and rest, dinner and for some short shopping at Bangla Street. And we went for a massage again but this time we tried the one inside Juncelyon mall basement. We choose the Aromatherapy for full body. There is 2 type, one is hot and one is normal. With aroma oil. I chose the Rose one which is quite nice. And it’s only 400-500baht for 1 hour.

Their service was quite good. Recommend to try! After the massage, they will give you a free balm just small bottle to apply for yourself. Not sure what’s is that for but I will just keep it. They also serve you with hot tea after the Massage to keep you warm after a cold air-con room.

Day 4

image-12

Freedom Beach

We finally at freedom beach on the last day of our trip. Goanna enjoy the beaches and nice view!

img_5246Karon Beach

The sea water is really clear here, and one thing that is very annoying is, when you walk along the beach always have those promoters to keep asking you want to join activities. Well if you are interested, go ahead and bargain for a reasonable price. They have quite a lot of activities out there. Like Water Ski, Parachute and many others. 

We actually take a walking distance from Karon Beach to Freedom Beach. While walking we taking nice photos and have a rest at a small cafe. We have some ice cream and take a short break from there and start walking and chatting along

So today we just went to Karon Beach and relax. We took a cab to Karon Beach about 300baht for 4 pax. I guess that’s the cheapest price. 

And we took another cab back to the hotel and have our dinner then head some shopping and back to the hotel and rest and call it a day.

Day at Patong

I can say at Patong have nothing much to shop too cause all the stall seems to sell the same thing. And worst is they will keep expecting you to buy at the price they are given and when we reject it, they keep bargain with you which is dam irritating.

Their night market is almost selling the same thing just that different price. Have to be very careful when you head to Bangala Street for a walk. At Night will have some clubbing happening, those people who work there will keep asking you wanna have a drink or see ladyboy. 

img_5212

The food here was not bad, we have tried one of their hawker food. The place looks like hawker so we went and see what they have here.

We order a fish and chips, Chicken Basil rice, Tom Yum Bee Hoon and Omelette oyster. The food here are quite cheap. They use card to top up and make payment . So we top up 50 baht for 2 people. Drinks and food.

The weather at Phuket is really very hot and sunny, but luckily the last 2 days was raining and it’s quite cooling. Remember to wear sunblock too!

This is my another successful trip, I would say I love the beaches and the scenery and I hope I will have the chance to come back again for the beaches!

Hope you like my sharing! If you want to ask any questions, feel free to leave me comments 🙂

HAPPY READING! 🙂

Phuket Trip – Best Sims Card Deal and Activity Package

img_5246-2

Phuket Trip – Best Sims Card Deal and Activity Package

We are finally here in Phuket for 5 days trip!

So we arrived at the airport around 9am in the morning, we try to avoid crowded so once we drop down we went to the check in counter . I guess there are some issues after landing off, they provide a bus to send us to the entrance of the airport.

After check in, once you come out can see a few stores, for phone Sim, water activities package etc. They even have car rental service and many others. At first we decide to ask at the street area for the water activities but it’s make sense when they explain the package to us. We bought a package that we wanted for snorkelling and Island hoping.

image-10image-11

So we get the package at 1600baht for 4 person. This price include taxi to our hotel from the airport if we bought on the arrival day. We feel the price make sense to us so we bought it on the spot. The reason we choose this is because we feel it makes sense and they have a clear English explanation, so it’s easy for us to understand. The package comes with 4 Island Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Lay,  Khai Nok,  Khai Nui. Sightseeing Lo samah Bay, Pileh Cove and Viking Cave. Will be taking with speedboat that occupied with 35-40 people depending on the boat engine.

img_5185img_5187

As for the Sims card we bought at AIS , is same company as SingTel and maxis. That’s what the person told us. At 99 baht with unlimited data and is 4G for 5 days. Which is quite worth ! If it’s sound good to you, just get from AIS . They have other package price too! They also will help you setup the Sim for you !

Somehow, we feel it’s really worth the price to arrive from the airport to our hotel, Tiger hotel. Which is at Patong. Patong is up the hill and down the hill from the other side.

So our plan was doing water activities, some shopping and beaches!

Check out my itinerary on my next post!

HAPPY HOLIDAY !

Travel: 5 Days 4 Nights To Phuket -Planning on the Right Season to go

Hello!! We are planning to Phuket on this Sep 18! for 5 days 4 night short trip.

I’m so excited to go overseas on holiday! Even is just a short holiday, most important is feel relaxed and enjoyed it. This time round I’m going with another friend, total of 2 couples. It’s our first time flying overseas together so we are really excited.

I have been to total of 4 trip, Vietnam, Ho Chin Min was my very first trip and it was with my dad on a short holiday! That was my first time taking a flight. It was a fun trip after all!

Second, I’ve been to Bali, Taiwan, Bangkok and now Phuket! I guess everybody will have some nonsense happening when going overseas, like typhoon, flight cancel, flight delay and etc. Since my past 4 trips, all have been distracted by flight delay, but I can say it’s still a wonderful trip. But to be mentally prepared before things happen. If it’s happens, the feeling is like … Speechless. disappointed.

Check the Weather Season

So, this time round we try to be very careful. But still.. there is one thing cock up. Which is the weather in Phuket. We didn’t know that September is raining season.. So we probably can’t do any sports activities which we plan to do. We still hope the rain is as bad.. Please do check the weather season first before you decide which month to go. Not only Phuket, other countries too.

 Plan your Itinerary

So, According to what we just know about the weather, plan seems to change. Be prepared that is goanna rain there. And also prepare backup if it does rain. We are mentally prepared for it..

But sometimes the weather forecast can be just a raft information. It’s really depends. Might be lucky though.

Put your priority first for the things you want to do. I suggest you plan a backup plan.

Eg. What if it’s rain? What are you going to do.

If it’s not raining , just move on your plan. Plan the transport, time of travel. This few things are important. So that you won’t missed out anything and get to do what you want to do.

Well, most important is plan your trip well and you are good to go!

Happy Holiday!

Sewing: How to Make your Own Clasp Coin Purse Pattern

img_4942

Hello! Everyone! Welcome to my another post on “How to Make your Own Clasp Coin Purse” Before you move on to cut out the fabric, you will have to make your own pattern for this. Because the clasp which is the frame, come in different sizes. But if you buy those pattern kit that comes with the material inside, usually they will include the pattern piece. As for this I watch from some of the videos tutorial and I’ve try to make one of my pattern, so I goanna share with you how to do it !

img_4385-1

First you goanna take your clasp frame, trace the arc on a piece of paper. Just trace it carefully and you will get a nice one.

img_4387

Then adjust a bit to make it easier for yourself to see the arc shape. From the bottom of each side, measure a 1cm down.

img_4389

And also the diagonally 1cm for both side. As you can see the top there is a hole, mark out a vertically stroke, so that later you need to cut it.

img_4390

Slowly draw out the bottom arc shape and make a connection arc to each other. Next, from the top marking draw one line down.

img_4441Cut to half according to the marking line. Fold to half and trace the arc nicely so that the both side are balance.

img_4392

Once is balance, cut out the whole shape and you have your pattern piece. Label it so that next time if you want to make again, you will know what size.

img_4442And you’re done! Now you have your own pattern, time to make your very own coin purse! Check out on how to sew a coin purse with clasp

HAPPY SEWING!

Sewing: How to Sew a Coin Purse with Clasp

img_4943

So here I goanna show you how to sew a coin purse with clasp frame, just follow step by step!

In the previous post, I show you how to make your own pattern for this coin purse project. So after you make your pattern piece, let make a coin purse!

Materials:

  • Fabric glue/White glue
  • Plier
  • Stick/Chopstick
  • Clasp frame
  • Paper cord
  • Fabric of your choice (outer piece)
  • lining fabric (inner piece)

img_4430Step 1 :

Using your pattern, cut out 2 piece inner and outer fabric.

img_4431Step 2 :

Align your outer piece right side facing each other.

img_4432

Step 3 :

Same to the inner piece, sew round the bottom arc shape.

*If you are using plain fabric for the inner piece, decide which side you wan to be the outside or can use any side.

img_4433

Step 4 :

After done with sewing, turn over both pieces.

img_4402-1

Step 5:

Slot in the inner piece, pin it in place sew and leave a hole on the top to turn over later on.

img_4403-1Step 6 :

Turn over and adjust the corner nicely. Top stitch the hole. You can use by hand or by machine. By hand will be nicer but this will be cover by the clasp so it won’t be seen.

img_4434

Next we goanna attach the clasp to the fabric.

img_4435

Step 7 :

Use the chopstick or stick and add glue to the clasp inner part, spread out the glue. (as picture shown)

img_4436

Step 8 :

This part is quite challenging. Once you have your glue in, attach the clasp to the fabric. You have to adjust it until it stick to the glue, than use the small piece of paper cord to slot it in.

Use a plier to clip the clasp gently, to make it tight so that it can clip on the fabric.

img_4437

img_4438

I’m using this paper cord, it comes in a roll. You can also try look out for packet or small portion in your local crafts store. They also comes in different thickness. Do check out for the size. If you are doing small coin purse, get the thinner ones.

img_4439

So here is how to sew a coin purse with clasp frame. Hope this post helps you in your project, but if you cannot get it or understand, don’t worry.. I will do up a tutorial video soon and will guide you thru step by step. Stay tune for my update on my YouTube channel!

3 Ways to Improve your English Language

open-book-1428428_1920

Hello! So here is another post on How to improve your English, just want to share some advise with you from my friend to help improve your English.

My English wasn’t that good.. so I keep try different ways to build up my English speaking and writing.

There are a few ways to try out.

Phone Apps : Grammar

They have Beginner pack to Advanced With practice and test. You can try practice and than do out the test. I quite like this app and I think it really helps. Of cause must be consistent enough, everyday do practice and test. (click on the link to download the app)

Read Book

Reading book is one of the best solution actually. When you read a paragraph, you can see and understand from the words given, and if you are not sure about the words just google it. Start with the children books if you are still beginner or get some simple easy reading books from your local book store. It’s easy! or can just get E book. Try to be consistent to read everyday. But remember, don’t stop half way randomly. Try to finish reading one full passage. So that it’s easy to remember where you stop at, and also you will remember the story better. Try to share with someone else the story you reading after finish one passage.

I have bought some books too, some recommends one like “Charlotte’s Web“, This is a interesting story book and I quite like it. “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” is a love story book, this is nice and it’s also helps you to understand love life with men and women. And I love dogs a lot, so I went to buy “Bailey Story” and A Dog’s Purpose”.

Do Assessment

Get Assessment book to do and correct the answers, each time you correct learn from the mistake you did and practice again. Keep doing and you will get it.

 

The key word here is to read more, do more and you can get it. I’m trying very hard to read and be consistent.. well, it takes time.. just be consistent this is what I can advise you. Some people hate to read or some don’t even read, like me is one of them.. but I can understand cause me myself don’t really read a lot, but I try to read. Every day can just read one passage, get your favourite book and maybe you will be interested to read. Who knows? Just try it yourself :)!

Hope this helps you!

 

 

Course in Taf.tc School

sparkler-677774_1920

So, previous post I wrote about the course I took this month.

I signed up another 2 more courses which is the “Sew top and Skirt” and “Sew Tops and Bottom with variation of collars”. This 2 courses will guide on how to sew basic top and skirt plus bottoms and shirt collars.

It seems to be fun, cause I have one classmate sharing with me her experience about the class. I was so excited to join cause it will be what I wanted to learn too. She was telling me at the end of the course , will have a project to sew your own blouse or shirt as a something called portfolio . So is like not bad .. This is what I wanted to have ..

So, what we did in class was testing out fabrics, and do experiments. Teacher ask to burn the fabric pieces and smell what is it like. Uhm? anyway, is just doing experiment. So I’m like ok.. She did cover about How fabric was done from the factory, the machines they use, some of the math conversion.. but one good thing is they have the notes for us to refer anytime. Best part I like is they have a notes that tells you what are the fabric advantages and disadvantages. We also learn how to see fabric and feel the fabric to get the feeling how is each fabric like.

I am so happy to make one friend in the class .. I wanna thank her for sharing the experience with me so I will know how the class like . And I think most likely its worth!

Currently now I’m still in textile processes class with another 5 more days and I will be going on a short trip holiday in Phuket ! Finally after so long of work ! Check out on my travel blog post soon!
