He Already Opened up his present! =)
The anniversary gift arrived real fast, like 2 days after I ordered it online from Amazon. John was the one who picked it up from the door side. He knew that was for him but he still had no idea what that was! I WANTED him to open it up right away but he refused. He said he can wait until 1st of December.

I guess the parcel layed around in the living room for 5 hours then I FORCED him to open up the present again. Hahahaha! I know! I just can't WAIT! So my poor baby can't refuse my request and he opened up the gift...

He got a BIG smile when he saw that. So, what did I get him??? I got him a Logitech One Harmony Universal Remote control. A totally awesome toy that most guys will love to death. He said he never have guessed I bought that for him. I can tell he truely loves his new toys and I am satisfied with this earlier surprise!!!

Ok! He spent like an hour tuning and playing with the new remote, and now we can control most of the electornic devices with THAT ONE remote. Good news and bad news too, that means, I have to LEARN all over again HOW to handle this new remote. Wish me luck!

Life After Lasik Surgery...

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.

iLasik surgery is no more a new thing nowadays. There are more than 5 people around me have actually undergone this surgery and I already heard so much about how their lives change around after the surgery. But I do have some freinds, mostly female are still afraid of going for the iLasik surgery. I totally can understand why so but seeing the life improvements you get to have after the surgery, I really think iLasik is one of the greatest inventions ever!

Abbott Medical Optics Inc. (AMO), is a global leader in laser vision correction. Now, they want to hear and see some feedbacks from those who have already had their iLasik done. They want to know how your lives have been improved with the perfect vision. Therefore, AMO has recently launched the “You Gotta See This”iLASIK Video Contest. They invite entrants to make a video to show the impact of improved vision and contestants stand a chance to win cash and prizes.

You can submit videos to show that how much better you can do in boxing and swimming. Or, you can show how your daily lives would improve without contacts and glasses. I think there are more than 5 daily improvements that you can think of right away. Hubby has undergone iLasik surgery 3 months ago and he loves his improved vision more than everything.

Now, let's talk about the the prizes that contestants could win. You can win a $5,000 Grand Prize! For First Prize winner, you could win a HDTV package which values $2,500. Second prize winnter, you will win the Flip UltraHD camcorder which is $199.99 value. And the better news is, there more few different categories in this Video Contest.

YAY!!! Cheaper price for Japanese Magazine

I just found out another better site that is based at the States which sell Japanese knitting books or Magazine online. It totally makes my day!

I used to purchase Japanese knitting magazine from Well, they do carry a huge collection of books but with the shipping and handling fees, normally it costs more than 25usd for a book.
I am a big fans of Couture Knit and I only have the copy of Let's knit series 12. I saw the 13, 14 are actually released. I believe the 14th one is the latest book so the price is like 8usd more expensive than the 13th.

After contemplating for about 10 minutes, I decided not to get the 14th this time. Oh ya, I forgot to tell you all about the NEW SITE I talked about, it is! The good news is, shipping is FREE for all the book or magazine! GOOD NEWS no ??? of course, this site carries some wonderful Japanese yarn too. Please feel free to visit to this site and I believe you definitely would see something you like!

So, I only spend 17usd (actually it is John's paypal account! hehe) for a wonderful knitting magazine with free shipping! YAY! I am happy like a bird!

Tulip Grace Hat
I made this hat about two months back for the Urban bazaar street craft fair. I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca for the hat and I love this yarn very very much. They are very nice to knit with. But it is just too sad to know that my local yarn shop is not carrying them at the moment. I really wish they will order this again in the future. Of course, I would like to try Ultra Alpaca light as well.

I have actually decided to write this pattern out a month ago but I wanted to try knitting this hat with lighter weight of yarn. So I picked out a 2-ply yarn from Woolie Ewe and made the same hat. Well, of course the lighter yarn shows more details of the lace stitches but worsted weight Ultra alpaca is very cozy and stretchy.

That is the reason why I include two type of yarn use in this pattern. Basically, they are knitted the same way, using the same needle but I attach as well the pictures of the two hats I knitted with two different yarns.

I released this knitting pattern at Ravelry and also at my ETSY store. Hopefully there are some knitters will love this hat as much as I do! =)

Milwaukee Trip 2009
We had a weekend trip to Milwaukee from 6th Nov - 9th Nov to attend a wedding. There were 5 of us in this trip, my parents in law, brother in law, John and I. It was a pretty early flight on the Friday. We arrived at Parents in laws about 6am in the morning and we all headed to the airport in one car.
We took a American Eagle to Milwaukee and the trip took about 2 and half hour to get there. Well, the plane is SMALL! That is the smallest plane ever I have taken. More likely it should be called an American Pigeon! The hotel that we stayed is just next to the airport which is very convinient. Also, the wedding banquet was held in the same hotel so we can enjoy ourselves to the max, drink as much as we wish and not worry about any driving.
It was a short and yet wonderful trip. We got to see a lot of relatives and the wedding is overwhelming. I love the mass service in the church. The priest did such a good job and I was touched with many things that he said.
You can't go Milwaukee without visiting to LEON's. So I did have my tripe scoope butter pecan frozen yogurt at LEon's. YUMMY!!! Well, I am definitely looking forward to go back to Milwaukee again next year!

Holiday Market in Fort Worth
Gloria and I will be joining a holiday market in Fort Worth at 21st November. We will have our own booth in a building. I just found out that there will be 75 vendors in this fair and now I am feeling all excited again.

I did not make any new things for this event as I was busy knitting a shrug and completing a design pattern for the past few weeks but I am still trying to make some fingerless gloves as these knitted gloves sold pretty good in the previous fair.

Wish me luck so I could sell some good number of items in this coming fair! =)
