The 5 mistakes I want to stop making in 2017

I made many mistakes in 2016 and reviewed some of them in Moleskine. I will avoided these mistakes in 2017 (Read Inspiration post).

3 portion for 4
My family comprises of 2 adults and 2 children.
When eating outside, we used to order each one of us a portion of meal. 
However, most of the time we were not really enjoy the food, not because there were unappetizing. But because it was too much for a family like us, small eater. 

Credit card 

Not to feel guilty to own many cards. There are served for different purposes. One to get cash rebate, the other one to enjoy discounts and points accumulation. 
Starts in 2017, be a wiser spender .

Online shopping  

Many opined that online shopping is an evil things. 
But I think I can do online shopping in fun way. 
And there are many online providers. Many promotions bundled with the seasons. Do the  price comparison and you will get a good bargain. In the process, you will have more time to cool down and think if you really need the stuff.   

Be calculative (about the quality). 

I have experienced in purchase of clothing. 
Buy 5 pieces with 'n' price and buy 1 piece of 'n' price. 
Ends up, the 5 pieces are kept in the wardrobe because I feel not comfort in wearing them. 
Quality is the matter. 

We talked about passion all the time. But without 'action', there are just a piece of dream of passion. 

Like instead of saying, “I’m passionate about traveling” I should replace that with “Today I’m going to plan a trip. I need $2,000 for the trip and I gonna to save $167 per month”

'Act' now! Do something.

Sunshine corner at the Malacca Trash & Treasure Market (Part B)

This is one of mine favorite corner at the Trash & Treasure Market,  
the eye catchy deco and the 'juicy' succulent. 
The lovely lady, owner of the stall introduced me a new plant she gotten recently, the Lithops. 
It's shape like a stone for me.

First use of TN Notebook

The Super Heroes collection ~ at the right corner in this journal, the stamps that earned upon certain money spent in a hypermarket. The stamps can be used to redeem some miniature. But I just felt that the stamps was far more cuter than the miniature.

Malacca Trash and Treasure Market (Part A)

Another treasure hunt for the weekend.This is such a wonderful place to wander in Malacca city during weekend. The indoor flea market is opened only on Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm.

           I wish to turn this antique lamp to good uses. 

It is such a good idea to locate the books in this manner.

The multi drawer cabinet has drawn my attention.

A sanctuary for Stationery lover

I had a blast at the Stickerrific in The School, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya.  

I adore the calligraphy written on the small display board.  

The stationery studio is filled with varieties of stickers, ink, calligraphy nibs, planners, notebooks and washi tapes !! Probably the best part of the store is the spacious space for the journaler / planner addict. Besides, I was busy to look at the ephemera pasted in every corner. 

My main objective for the visit was to get myself a set of Travelers Notebook (Midori). 


I also can't get my eyes off those real-life sampling.

A peek inside the moleskine

I'm enjoying the MT Tapes so much more. I love to create and beautify the planner / journal that can keep me inspired every single day, to connect with the inner child, to overcome periods of burnout.

(Journal) I reviewed the time spend on family, career and own self. Weekday - 12 hours on works (include 4 hours commute), 7 hours of sleep and the leftover will juggled between family and self. I figured how to design my life in the way that closed to my goal.

Heart ♥ pages for MT Tape

I got myself the cute Animals MT permanent tape. 
This type of tape is back with strong adhesive and is meant for packaging.

Got myself this fabulous MT ext Ticket. 
And it's quite expensive but it worth the price. 
The tape is so perfect for travel and as it can be easily to peel and tear.

MT Expo in Kuala Lumpur

MT Ex is finally coming to Kuala Lumpur !

I'm long for the Colorful masking tape "mt" comes to Malaysia. 
The event will be here from Jul 27 to Aug 7, 2016, at Pavilion Mall, KL.

MT (Masking Tape) / Washi tape with its unique colors and patterns, distinctive texture, exceptional characteristic, and simplicity of use, it has become extremely popular in Japan and around the world. 

Pleasure moments in front of those amazing tapes. 

Limited Edition Atari Tapes (not-for-sale)

The fun part in the MT Ex ~ to draw a lucky capsule from this gachapon (dispensed capsule toys). 

I could consider myself very lucky, I got the capsule with a message "You Won !" 
I redeemed my favorite choice of masking tape ~ bow-tie.
