House Cleaning #1 (Repost from 28/6/2010)

Greetings! Kopivosian!

I dunno what I've done, I just lost the previous post. He're I'm re-posting my house cleaning progress again. (Jangan marah, ya :)

Last weekend, I've decided to take a day off from work to sort out my own stuff. One of the things I'm yet to start is cleaning our new house. After the paint job done by Hans (our part time paint guy), he left paint stains everywhere around the floor lace. So hubby and I started cleaning the lace around Bedroom 2, at upstairs. While chatting, I decided to clean the switches. Without realizing the effect of my hard scrubbing, my hubby was totally amazed with the result.

Look at my hardworking hubby concentrating on his floor lace scrapping and scrubbing.

I've used a simple cleaning solution with these items: Flat scrapper, scrub pad, cleaning towel, AMWAY L.O.C. multi-purpose cleaner -- my best cleaning buddy. Love using it, since it's gentle to my sensitive skin, and won't cause skin irritation. I pressed 2 droplets into a pail with half water full and did my cleaning for the next 4 hours.

This is how I did it. Photos were self taken using my Sony Ericsson K530i.


Wipe clean the surface of the switch and start scrapping the paint stain on the surface. Some paint stains are freshly done by Hans, but when I started scrapping harder, the old paint stains surfaced.


At some stage, stubborn stains were so difficult to remove. I had to use all my finger strength to scrub until it look clean and shiny.

Here's how one of the switches looked like: Dirty, old-looking, with stubborn paint stain. A once cleaning dummy (of me) never thought that we could save ourselves some bucks from replacing the switches until I cleaned them.  


Tadaa! The secret of reviving the dirty old-looking switch -- Is to use the items I've just mentioned and scrub with love and patiently. 

Talking about patience, my hubby has since assigned me to clean the rest of existing switches, the total 28 nos. So far 19 were scrubbed, 8 more switches to go. Yeay! :)

p/s: It's very tiring, but it's worth the efforts! Every cleaning comes with a good meal as a reward. :)

DIY Birthday invitation card for Rosanna Ku

Greetings! Kopivosian!

Remember my niece Lil' Rosanna? Or we would call her Mei-Mei (The little girl) in the family.

Mei-Mei with her birdie eyes
Well, it's her birthday coming. She's celebrating her birthday on Monday, 19 July 2010 at school during school recess. She has asked her mom for a "homemade" birthday cake so she could bring to school. And my job? It's to design her birthday invitation cards for her little friends and teachers at school.

Mei-Mei is turning 6 this year. Since she loves Disney characters so much, especially Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, I've decided to design her invitation card with the theme she loves most. :)
I stumbled on a fantastic website that creates Mickey and Minnie invitation cards for sale from Lisa's handmade invitation cards. Since it's impossible for me to order from Lisa, I decided to do my own version of DIY birthday card for Mei-Mei. There was no tutorials in Lisa&#…

To my love, thanks for everything...

Life is great having a special man like you. God bless you, dear... Xoxo

Happy Birthday, Den-Den! 17012015

My little Den-Den has turned 2! Yeay! Woohoo!

No, I never wrote about Den-Den. He was born in January 17, 2013 in Sibu, Sarawak. He's the only son of my only brother Canny & Kristy who got married in 2012. Time flies so fast!!

It's a great fun having a little one in our family. (FYI, Den-Den is a master frequent flyer between KK & Sibu, often travel back to mom's hometown to see his grandparents)

Being a 姑姑 Gugu a.k.a. Aunty, I've been learning to keep up with him too because we haven't had a little baby in the family for quite a long, long time, consider the youngest one, Mei-Mei is now 10, going to 11. :P





This is technically a "belated" birthday & I've just missed the birthday cake... (my bad for being late from a meeting)

Yesterday, we had a steamboat dinner to celebrate sister B's birthday (coming Jan 20th) in advance & I did a little impromptu set up for a photo corner with colourful garland strings as backdrop. Simple, it…
