We participated in the Pandora Art Carnival on Sunday, and I must say it was such a fun one. It was our first time ever participating in such a carnival, selling preloved items, snapping away really cool dressed people of the streets staying true with our concept, I guess one of the reason why I loved it, was because, it felt like a very close knit event; everyone seems to know everyone, close enough to break a dance in the middle of nowhere randomly, close enough that people were looking out for each other's booth, close enough that we were encouraging each other's booths.
It's a fairly small event, but you could tell the visitors were good and interested people. To top it all off, it's a local art event so you've got all kinds of art exhibitions, something I'd say you wouldn't easily get to find at any public areas on prime times, prime days. These are really young talented Sabahans.
Two days ago, I found out that the kitty that I've been trying to domesticate for a few months now has left our home. I assumed this so because there are absolutely no signs of the kitty around anywhere after it had gone missing. I've reached out to Kitty till late by its favorite food tray's clinking noise, opened our doors wide open, and stayed by them (because it doesn't jump in through window) and rang it's toy bell every second for two nights now. I have loved it SO much, so so much.
All my life, I have never chained nor caged any of my pets, for reasons; I find it absolutely depressing and straining for them (some friends say I'm always a hippy that way). This might offend some, but the idea of caging and putting a leash on your pet friend almost feels like locking them down for our own rhyme and pleasure when we're home from work or anywhere. Caging for our own love. I'm not sure why I would reason so, but I do, and refuse the idea till today. …
A couple of weeks back, Chris invited me over to a "special" cocktail party. It was going to be a local Lihing mixer party, a type of local alcohol brewed and made by locals ourselves. I have attended all kinds of cocktail parties, but this was the first of its kind. And honestly, lihing wasn't really a favourite, so to give this drink a chance alongside with a bunch of really great company was something I figured should be SO cool!
To start with, 'lihing' is a native produce of Sabah and some say they originated by the Kadazandusuns. They are made from fermented glutinous rice toppled and mixed with sugar and yeast. That makes lihing basically a rice wine.
I took one photo from that night, which I have loaded on Instagram. The remaining of the photos are from Sabby, thank heavens Sabby. I thought I should share this cocktail party idea, because this has turned lihing (which I have religiously refused previously), a delicious treat!
Nothing fancy, glamorous and expensive. My latest obsession are just my kittens :)
I am so in love and protective of them. I'd leave office early, just to catch and play with them. I hold them close to my heart, and I kiss them whenever possible. The funniest thing about it, is that until today I have not named the kittens, eventhough the newest but the eldest addition has been a few months old now.
My brother did named them eventually, something I don't think I quite like, so I've decided to just call the eldest Kitty Cat for now.
Okay, that's my quick update for now. I owe myself an update.
