I am such a pig!!

Yes, I’m talking about myself and you’re looking at one right now! 😀

You know what, I don’t know what got into me today. I just ate all day long and I still get hungry! LOL! I think after being sick for days my appetite came back with vengeance and yes it was! And I took a couple hours of nap in the afternoon and here I am at 2:45am, wide awake! Serves me right!

So, I couldn’t sleep and the only thing I could do to pass my time was to chat with the hubby and did a little scrapping. 🙂 What else can I do? Oh yes, I packed my stuff for my business trip tomorrow, again. I’ll be off to Bangkok this time for 5 days for some training.

I thought I just came back! And it’s time to go again??!! My bag was still lying around in my room and I got to re-pack again??!! Aaaarrrggghhhhh……………… seriously, I hate packing! I felt like a nomad, popping home for 2 days and I’m off to another foreign land. Sheesh, I felt my home is now like a hotel, checking in and out in such a short time.

Ok, ok, I’m not complaining about my job. I still love my job but I wish I could be around at home just a little longer, you know what I mean? Maybe longer than 2 days? Sigh………………….. I’m already missing my family! 🙁

I’m not going to bore you further with my ramblings at this hour. I’ve got a layout here I just completed about an hour ago I’d love to share with you.

This picture was taken a couple of months back when I was in Tokyo on my first business trip to Japan. There I was, savouring my favourite dish of Pork Ramen at Ginza. Yummy yummy yummy!! 🙂

I used the Magistical Memories Retro Concave Open Border chipboard to frame my title “Ginza”, drew borders around the photo, punched out circles using a bunch of scrap papers, journaled on one of the circles and stamped on the other. This layout is so ME!! 🙂

Hey, Magistical Memories is giving away some new released chipboards! Whooopeeee whooopeeee do!! So you may want to pop right in here to put in your names for the draw to win their awesome new chipboards!

And Creative Therapy’s Catalyst Twenty is up now! Go see how beautiful the creations of all the talented ladies are! Ehmmm…………… that includes me! Bwahahahahaha!!

I’ll show you mine here and you go right in there to join in the fun, how about that? 🙂

Promise me you won’t laugh at my Chinese writing ok? I know it looks awful, I blame it on my folks for not sending me for Chinese lessons when I was younger. LOL! Seriously, my folks, my sister and myself are all Chinese illiterate! How bad can that be??

And whenever I opened my mouth to speak Chinese, all my friends will go “SHUT UP LEENA! Speak English, your Chinese is so darn awful!!”. LOL! LOL! LOL! Talk about friends, they’re supposed to encourage me to speak more Chinese but they ask me to shut up instead! Anyway, for your information, I speak fluent Malay! Cool eh? LOL! 😉

I think I’m ready to go to bed now. I better get some sleep or I’ll miss my flight tomorrow. Sheesh, what a thing to say!

Have a great week ahead and I’ll come in to say hi when I’m in Bangkok. 🙂

    Love your layouts – I get very inspired when I see them!

    Glad your feeling better…. and eat when your hungry – it’s your body’s way of saying it needs it. =) Good luck and don’t run yourself down again =)

    Boy, a weekend of camping sure adds up to a bunch of missed blog reading.

    Your HGS sneaks look great-can’t wait to see them in full. I just bought the fall kit today-can’t wait for that one even though just starting the summer one.

    Congrat’s to the winner of the lovely prize package-enjoy!

    Hope work flies by for you this week and you are back home to your family.

    Congrats to Yvonne!

    Wow you’re really a nomad… no joke! Everytime i come in here, you’re either away, or on your way to another country! Better take good care of yourself… pssst i like the simplicity of the Ginza layout!

    And haha the speak Chinese thing… grin. My jc classmates used to speak to me in Chinese and I’d reply in English! Coz er… i took higher chinese but they say my speaking is atrocious! so… i’m with u in that atrocious Chinese-speaking camp!

    Just wanna ask…aaa….are you Singaporean? Because what i know Singaporean Chinese can’t speak Malay (but you mention you can speak fluent Malay). Sorry I a bit “geh boh”.
