Photobook Of Chester ❤️

After Chester’s passing, I wanted to make a special photobook dedicated to him. A photobook that chronology his time with us, from his gotcha day in 2003 to his very last day with us in 2015. When I make this plan into motion, I knew this will be really my final goodbye… as in letting go. I’ll still love him and miss him no matter what.

Doing this photobook was a bittersweet process. Of course I cried while choosing and looking back at the thousands of photos, especially the last year. Do I have to re-live those last painful moments? Yes, I need to in order to grow up. I have toughen up a lot since then.

Without further ado, may I present you the photobook of my golden angel, Chester… just a sneak peak of the 80 pages album with nearly 600 photos.

A golden with a golden heart. I choose this photo as the front cover of the album. It’s one of my very favorites. It’s on the canvas too. This photo was taken few days after his birthday in 2013 using Samsung S3.

2016 Origins Christmas Set

Hey hey, I just got back from my virgin Japan trip couple of days back. And yes, I will definitely be blogging about it. Meanwhile, here’s a post I planned to write about pre trip but the busyness got the better of me.

Can you believe the Mask Marvels set I bought last year still remain unopened? Because of this and also because of weak RM & wanting to tighten my belt, I did not get any Origins Christmas set. On the other hand, my sister bought the All-Star Anti-Agers set.

Love the box design and since my sis did not want the empty box, I get to keep it. Yay!

Shell Heritage Canisters

As a collector of many things (read: paper bags, stamps, boxes, bottles), I was so happy to learn about the limited edition heritage canisters offered by Shell; to commemorates its 125th anniversary in Malaysia. Problem was I learned about this promotion 2 weeks late. Surely the canisters from the weeks before has been snatched up, right? Nope. I was wrong. There were plenty left. Seems like no one wanted to collect these beautiful heritage canisters.

Unlike last year’s Lego Shell collection promotion which were such a hit (those Lego were sold out on the day it was released), I saw plenty of heritage canisters sitting at the Shell stations. I also basically didn’t need to show my proof of purchase of RM40 of Shell fuels to buy those big canisters. That’s how unpopular they are.

Growing Avocado Trees From Seeds

I mentioned about sharing my experience on growing avocado trees from seeds back in June in my growing vegetables & fruits from kitchen scraps post. So here it is, nearly 3 months later. Although not much I’ve gain in terms of experience except to see my beloved avocado trees growing bigger and stronger.

Before I divulge more, let me tell you the story on how it got started.

Back around Feb-Mar this year, my sis attempted growing avocado with this peculiar technique of poking the seed with toothpicks and let it half-submerged in a glass of water. If you google ‘grow avocado’, you’ll see many search results using this method. My sis’ attempt was a failure. Nothing grew.

So I told her why not just plant the seed directly to the soil? The most straight forward method. Hah! She followed my advice and wah la…
