Random Act of Uncertainty Anxiety

Phone, camera adapter or anything with wire always make us easily frustrated. Sew this velcro strap around your tangled wires like this and everything is gonna be just fine.

Mama's Gonna Be Crafty This Fall

A game console and I are best friends since many years ago. I am so excited as I read a pixel-project contest in craftster.org: Craftster Challenge #55: Pixelate Mama. Mama now becomes a crafter, thanks to Majesco Entertainment! Cooking Mama Ltd. They started the series with "mama" as a chef. Then from cooking alone, she cooked for her friends & family on "Cooking Mama 2: Cooking with Friends". Before the third one, they released "Gardening Mama" (errm, gardening in cooking mama style, damn hard and too many flowers to pick on, north, south, east and west). The fun tripled as they launched "Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop". We could follow Mama's yayness (quoting Shalimma) shopping between frantic sales persons, who succeed made me stop each time I met them between supermarket aisles.

In Crafting Mama, players will create 40 different projects across a wide range of different crafts: make patchwork quilts, earrings, candles, xylophones, kaleidoscopes, birdhouses, flower decorations and even mini-Mama dolls! Using the stylus as a universal crafting tool, crafters will sew, mold, glue, cut and paint under Mama's masterful direction. Best of all, players can use each of their creations within the game itself: dress Mama up in a new apron you've sewn or even fly a freshly folded paper airplane. In addition, new materials, colors and patterns are available to customize each project, and multiplayer support lets players create with a friend.

If you feel not crafty enough in real world, at least you could do it in pixelated world of Nintendo. I'm so glad I always said to myself "In Nintendo I trust", so I didn't buy PSP back then. 


Selamat Hari Raya, Teman-teman!

I'm not really in a good mood before Hari Raya, my ears and eyes are a bit swollen (schlechte Laune oder so was!). This frame was given by Ms. Vantiani from our last trip to second hand market with Frnss. Now my painting got a new nice home. I love it very much. 

Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri
Semoga Semua Menjadi Berkah 


On Your Mark, Get Squirrels, GO!

I am really into history books recently and in need for a stand-out bookmark to replace the colorful, full of beads indian book thong that I lost yesterday. So in the middle of generating (boring) subtitles for the film, I grabbed on my X-acto knife, asked my colleagues for used envelopes and made these happy squirrels. I made them twice, the first one had been blown by electric fan. Probably I will post the tutes on weekend, please wait for it ;)


Mittwoch Macht Frei: Zoku, Quick Pop Maker

Can I have one for my birthday? A long hot day in the office easily bored me to death. Since yesterday I was wondering about freshly squeezed orange juice a.k.a "es jeruk abang-abang", then I bought a glass full of joy on my way home. And today, I'm drooling over this popsicles maker, ZOKU...look at the pops on the video...tasty...and cute.
