just to udpate that there will be no blog hopping by me for the coming few days..my home line got problem, suspect it’s the router!!! Gonna renetwork the whole house . So please bare with me if I didn’t leave any comments at your blog. Also tags, I haven’t replied..will do the homework once the line is up…
Oh boy..if Daddy finds out…both of you gonna be dead-meat . Who killed the fish? That’s what Faythe asked. Luckily it’s not Daddy’s arowana, or else I think everyone will be smacked. It’s Faythe’s collection of fishes. Daddy bought 10 fishes from the Nemo cartoon (from the bakery shop haha…cheap and good quality, I think it’s used for people to decorate cakes). So, they have a pack of fishes, nicely kept in a plastic bag. Faythe sometimes immitate Darla (in Nemo) shaking the fishes and kill them *gosh…why my girl so evil*.
So on a weekend when we were playing, she took all the fishes out, dump them in the basket and keep shaking them…keep repeating:
Faythe: Who kill the fish? Who? All the fishes die…Die…Die…Die….already
I overheard this and went to KPC.
Mommy: wahh..who killed the fish?
Faythe: Faythe….all the fishes die.
Mommy: OKlah, die already then go cook your fish OK
She still walk around the house asking who kill the fish. And Vyktore wanted to get some fishes, so both of them were trying to get hold of the basket of fish…In the end, all the fishes spill on the floor, and Vyktore got the basket. And he wore it on his head kakaka…..just like the diver catching Nemo (that’s what Faythe says).
So who’s the killer? Both the kids lah…one shake them, one spill them on the floor….poor fishes.
Faythe has decided to change job again. Now she’s becoming a mechanic, fixing car LOL. We were playing in the living hall one weekend. There she was, with all her cars. Then she decided to turn them around and give them a fix. I don’t know where she got this idea, but it’s very funny when I heard her lil’ conversation by herself and I decided to join in.
Faythe: Faythe fix car…car cannot move
Mommy: Ohh..what happen to your car?
Faythe: Car rosak. See Mommy, Faythe fix car *showing me the car*
Mommy: OKOK…what are you fixing? Where rosak?
Faythe: Car battery rosak. Faythe fix.
Mommy: *I wonder how she knows car got battery* giggles…oh icic. If can’t fix send to hospital ok. Ask doctor fix (I told her this last time when I sent my car to workshop for maintenance)
Faythe: Car cannot fix, go hospital…Mommy, where’s my doctor set?
Mommy: *alamak, she pretend to be doctor somemore* doctor set in grandma house lah…..you pretend first lah, use something else
Faythe: *she took something else and pretended*..check check…OK fix already…see now can move. *She wind the car and it moves a bit*
Mommy: wah so clever girl ah….go fix another car hahaha…*evil grin*
Kids are really amazing…and ever so creative. I never thought from playing a car it can become fixing a car…I don’t think I ever thought of this when I was young.
Well, since my blog is officially older than 1 year old (since I migrated to new domain), and basically I’ve already blogged for more than 2.5 yrs…I’ve pretty bored with my existing template and went hunting for it. Has always tempted to change but just couldn’t find the right one…..until this morning 12am!!!
So I quickly did a nice banner for Z’ New Look…ermm…it might still change a lil on that banner thingy, depends on my mood LOL…but for now…here’s presenting the blog’s New Look.
You like it?
updates (3am): OK…editing done and satisfied, no more changes. I’ll add back the slides, etc later on…
Ahh…my lil boy is in love. But not on a girl. But the stairs!!! Yes!! he loves the stairs. Whenever he spots nobody around, he’d take a sneak and start climbing. Sometimes, he’ll stop half way, hanging by the side of the staircase railing. Trying to go down, but dare not. Then when you call him, he’d give you that million dollar smile. But still refuse to budge.
He also love the stairs at our top floor. that one is a very long and dark one since the top floor is for guestroom. He will slowly climb up without us watching, when I caught him, he’s already middle of the way….gosh..I think I need to get a gate soon. I never had this problem with Faythe. No….she won’t dare to climb. I guess boys are boys!!
Now when I told him not to, he won’t climb as well, he finally understands what is NO.
Yes yes…..this is the latest hottest news…for all the F1 fans!! Also to Barbara’s hubby LOL…We are off any penalty. Yes!! Confirmed that after 6 hours of hearing with the FIA council, McLaren does not face any charges…no penalties on them…wohoo..this is by far the best news I’ve got today.
Told ya..we are innocent …Ferrari fans, don’t lah try sabo people…later sendiri kena only…so now all can concentrate for the race next weekend…
This piece of news definitely come right on time…cause I received some not so happy news today and been down .
This not a sponsored post eh..
OK..this is very overdue tutorial for all the fans out there. Very sorry for the delay, just couldn’t get myself into writing down the steps. Here you go…this is something related to arranging the photos all very nicely in a page like what you can see on my banner.
- Open photoshop
- Open all the papers that you want to put in your scrap..the more the better (like 5-6 of them)
- Use one of the paper as background.
- Duplicate a layer of that and turn that to white the bottom most layer (you can find the steps in my previous tutorial step 1-4)
- Go to another paper.
- Go to View, Ruler..make sure you can see the ruler top and left side of the photoshop
- Make sure you selected the MOVE tool (the first row right side).
- Move your mouse to the left ruler, hold and drag
- You will see a line appear…sometimes can be cyan colour or whatever colour
- Drag that and place it at the 2″ marker
- Then repeat from top ruler as well and stop at 2” marker.
- Now you have a 2”x2” marker on your 2nd paper.
- Select the rounded edge rectangle tool (the one below the text T tool)
- Draw a rounded edge within the 2”x2” marker, make sure it’s slightly smaller than the 2”x2”
- Then right click, make selection. Set the pixel as 0 and click OK
- You will see the selected 2”x2” is now like marching ants.
- Select the Move tool (first row, right tool), drag this selected 2”x2” to the 1st paper. You will see a new layer duplicated.
- Repeat step 17, 3 times dragging from 2nd paper to 1st paper.
- Go back to 2nd paper. Now change to the select tool (1st top left)
- Again, drag from 2nd paper, but now to the 3rd paper (another new paper). This step is to transfer the same shape & size from one paper to another. Or else you will not get same size throughout the collage.
- Repeat step 18-20 until you completed drag all the papers that you’ve opened. Remember each paper repeat 3 times.
- Once done, close all the paper except 1st paper which now contains all the paper in 2×2 square boxes of multiple colours.
- Now, use the marker and set 2”x2” for the whole paper. Meaning you will have 5 lines horizontally, 5 lines vertically if you are using a 12”x12” paper size.
- Now drag each of the layer to each 2”x2” square..arrange them nicely alternating them.
- So you have a neat collage now.
- Then add your picture in. If you want to have rounded edge, repeat steps 13, 15, 16 & 17.
Sounds very complicated right. I’m very sorry, but I think this the easiest way to go with it. Once you are familiar with drag n drop of layers and arranging them you’ll get the hang of it.
Give it a try. Note that there are other ways of doing it, which turns out more complicated and I thought this is the easiest to follow.
And here’s mine for the tutorial. Congrats, you’ve finished the tutorial .
Sometimes I wonder where Faythe’s creativity juice comes from. Is it Mommy or Daddy? We are both lefties which alot people claims we are creative people (lefties are known for creativity mah).
Daddy as usual always say “I got sense of design”..bleak bleak…
Mommy says “No lah, I’m not creative…but I like my work (my scrap pages)…bleak bleak…
A pair of perasan parents LOL.
And here’s presenting our creative kid #1, Faythe.
I got this as a free gift when I bought some magazines. It’s supposed to used for covering your eyes when you sleep. The thing to block the lights and you can sleep better (forgot the name of this thingy). She spotted it and took it…then flip flip and check it out.
Then she told me, “Mommy, br*ast pad…”
And she put in at her chest like putting on a b-r-a LOL..
I told her no no..this is for covering your eyes and demo it to her…
But she insist and say no, that’s br*astpad. And requested me to strap it for her. So what else, gotta entertain my lil creative pie and put on the breastpad for her . Then she went posing around saying br*astpad and laughing to herself haha…
Then she asked me to take picture, so for sure I take lor hahaha…..
When it was almost bed time, I asked her take it off, she refused and say must wear it to oi oi…(roll eyes)
OK, this is not about the Harry Porter book, as I haven’t read and don’t plan to read haha. I remember last week, the papers was telling that 4 bookstore in Malaysia has ban the book being sold in their stores. One of which was MPH.
So today as I was browsing thestar online, I was shocked to read the news that MPH is now selling..somemore got 20%-25% discount. And first thing I thought of, if now they can throw price at 20% less, means memang they got a very high margin for the book itself. But they are just envy and wanted to be stuck up with C4 & Tesco say they sell RM70.
But see C4 & Tesco so good business, they also can’t accept it..throw in 20%-25% discount. This is totally crap lah…they are already reaping so much from the consumer. Then they threaten not to sell, but after few days…go ahead and sell and give discount. Such dirty tricks right.
I was reading some of the Mommies blog and read bout this story lah..bout the lil girl murdered by the mother’s bf and mother. The plot is thickening and I find that the mother really something wrong.
The mother was found guilty and the bf was also found guilty of murdering the child. But the funny thing is they were bailed out while waiting for the court case. And today’s paper, the mother told the press that she’s very upset of what happened to the daughter. And she misses all those time they spent together, and some bla bla bla…Now if she really do have the heart, then why the hell help the bf to murder the daughter.
And now she comes and say all this, asking for symphathy ah? Really some CSI case..too deep for me.
