This is one of my favourite places to explore in Singapore. No fancy stores/brands, cheap toiletries, a bit tacky and old fashioned, along with my favourite local craft store (Golden Dragon) ….People’s Park in Chinatown. 😀

I went there after a medical appointment at NUH today. Bought yarn :p, cheap toiletries and spotted a shop that sells self-assembled bean bags!

I was curious about the price so I went in to check it out. Then the lady boss who was there saw my bag of yarn and said “Oh you crochet!”. I said yeah! 😀

And we started talking about crocheting and knitting and how fun it is. hehe. Then she had a customer in the shop, so I told her it was nice meeting her and left. Forgot to ask her for her name. I’ll say hi to her again the next time I’m there. 🙂

It’s so nice to be able to talk about crafting with someone who has similar hobbies! 😀

Craft Haul November 20, 2010

I bought a bunch of craft stuff today ….

A set of KnitPro interchangeable cables knitting needles!

They are the same as Knit Picks …. same manufacturer,  just different branding. Knit Picks is for USA/Canada market while Knit Pro is marketed to the rest of the world.

I’ve transferred my current project onto the needles and they feel wonderful to knit with! :):)

2 skeins of El D Mouzakis Butterfly Super 10 yarn … 100% mercerised cotton, 230 metres per skein, S$15 each. Decently priced I’d say. Good quality too!

Clover’s Shamrock Yoyo maker. 😀

Happy day for me! heehee

Wow! It has been a while since I posted on my blog! I haven’t forgotten about it … I’d just been busy with this and that. 😛 So I’m gonna be making quite a number of post today. 😀

One of the updates ….. my kitchen got renovated. Here’re the before and after:

Green cabinets …vintage! Almost 30 years old … kinda sad to see them go ….

Renovation in progress ……

The aftermath …. my new kitchen :):):) with the new awesome energy saving big-ass Samsung fridge!

And my favourite shelf …… 😀

New things are always great, aren’t they? 😀
