There’s alot of things that I would like to write, but because I really couldn’t find time, I had to put it aside.
Currently, I’m pretty much free as my big boss just retired, and I sort of have some free time on hand, and also not to mention something really nice happened to my life, and I am kind of enjoying it even though it can be really tiring, but nevertheless I still enjoy it alot. So because of all these nice things happening (even though there are some bad ones which I filtered it off because I decided that I want to be happy and ignore them), I have started a few hobbies/interests such as cooking, crocheting which I don’t think that I am good at it, and will ever do it if all those good things never happen. Or rather to say, a gamer/indoor person like me would never do such things.
And speaking of crocheting, I have sourced online for a few recommendations, and stumbled on to this website: Wish I were stitching
The owner, Angela is really nice, and having taken 2 lessons from her, my project (a scarf) is nearly 50% done. How this whole thing at “Wish I were stitching” is that you get to choose the project you want to do (e.g. a scarf or a bag), make the payment online, and head over to her place which is located at The Commerze@Irving, 1 Irving Place (I will mention on how to make your way there) to start on your project where she will teach you on the crocheting/knitting basics and then on to the hands-on as she guides you. For me, I decided to crochet a wool scarf as I’m heading to my favourite place of all time, Japan this end December. You can get to choose alot of projects on her website.
This is not my actual work. This yarn is provided by Angela for my own practice after the 1st session!
Part of scarf~
Will post details of my final workpiece once I am done (should be able to finish by end of this month as the design I’m doing, which is my “original design” is very simple), so be sure to check out my instagram as I tend to update there earlier than my blog.
For those who are interested to learn crocheting/knitting, you can find Wish I were stitching’s address in the Contact tab of the above mentioned website. It is pretty simple to get there despite me getting lost on the first day of lesson. Alight at Tai Seng MRT Station (Circle Line), and head to Exit A. Once you reach head upstairs, turn left and walk in. You will see a post box, and from there head all the way straight and then turn left. You will see a mustard color building and that’s the building.
P.S. If you’re there on a Saturday, you can pop-by one of the cafe’s there! I recently went to Carol Mel Cafe, and the food was pretty nice though the Cafe Hazelnut I ordered was a ‘lil bit sweet.
Speaking about cooking, well it is more like a love-hate relationship. I do like to cook, but I hate it when it comes to the preparation part and of course the washing which I really dread alot. If you follow my Instagram(@eveychua), you will most likely to find me posting images of my lunchbox and the things that I have been cooking recently. Am slowly getting used to cooking, but still I dread the preparation and washing part.
Here’s a few photos on the lunchbox that I have made (still far away from those professionals, but I think I can do it!)
I guess I’ll stop here for now. Just update soon!!
