My scrapbooking journey all started with my husband.
Every year, i would design a calendar with a monthly calendar grid complemented by family photos, but this year, he asked for something different. In previous years, he might like a photo on the January monthly calendar very much, but because it was so obviously a calendar, he felt rather foolish displaying it in his office past the month and would take it down to avoid being teased. After he came across some Japanese anime calendars which are almost completely posters save for a line of numbers at the bottom, he thought maybe i could do something similar?
And so i thought, and i thought, and finally something clicked in my mind. Why not get some inspiration from the scrapbooking community, and work with a scrapbooking theme? From then on, yours truly started slowly but surely falling in love with the whole scrapbooking world!
This week, the CNY festivities continue as we visit friends, see the lanterns at 春到河畔 (though there’s not much to see this year) and enjoy a spectacular musical fireworks show at Legoland. Also, CNY is not complete without firecrackers!
Note: the Chinese characters are the name of a Chinese New Year event along the Singapore River, and can be translated to mean 'spring arrives at the river banks'. Those fireworks look like they are being set off over the skyline of Kuala Lumpur, capital city of Malaysia, but no. That's actually a Lego miniature of the iconic buildings in KL and nearby Putrajaya, where the civil service resides. Hubby is a Valentine's baby, so those are photos of our little celebration in a little neighbourhood cafe behind our house.
