From Japan With Love...And Toughest Decision Ever

I had the craziest many things happened...

But the parcel I received yesterday was like a ray of sunshine...full of happiness, made me forget about all things depressing :)

I ordered a few cuts of these gorgeous Japanese fabric from a fellow blog friend Sue, a Malaysian residing in Japan. The fabrics are the ever fabulous Heather Ross Kokka fabrics and Nani Iro's Fuccra. I never thought I'd own them as purchasing these from the US is so, so expensive. Thanks to Sue, this coming from Japan is much more affordable and fast too! Barely a week and they're safely here.

Honestly Sue, I feel like we've known each other for years! Such a lovely lady and wonderful crafter too! I really admire your work and wish I can be in Japan and absorb all those creative vibes. Check out Sue's blog for more inspirations.

Now I know how double gauze feels soft..oh so dreamy!

Now, about the toughest decision I've ever made in my life, ever. For reasons too long to write and ramble on about here, I've decided to convert my scholarship and pursue my masters here in Malaysia. Looks like going to Australia to study and dragging my two kids and husband leaving his job will not be happening.

Oh well...I guess I'll just have to plan a holiday to Perth then, already booking Air Asia X, none other :P


  1. Hi, been following your blog in silent. Whatever decision you make, i think you must have made it for the family...congratulations.. may you succeed.

  2. Hi Ummi. It takes another mother to understand one ya? :) thank you so much, your comment warms my heart and makes me feel better about my decision

  3. Zura dear,
    Firstly, thanks for all the lovely things you've said about me and the humble lil blog. *hugs*

    Second, I totally understand what you are going through.. I'd been in that spot..but the difference was my hubby got the scholarship and I had to leave my job..

    Everything happens for a reason, maybe this is for the best.. I'm sure
