Do-it-yourself (I can do it!) Steel can lanterns

Greetings! Kopivosian!

We had a wet kitchen extension -- 20' x 25'. It's huge, huge enough to allow my MIL to cook and serve guests of say 50 people at once I think. My Director-of-the-Mansion a.k.a. hubby has requested a little "Man's corner @ Mini bar" and I've allowed that. Weehee! This means I can organise my girlies' drinking session at home too! Huhu~ 

I know this picture hardly shows the kitchen area because now it's still under reno and the place was dark with bright sunny shining in. The allocated "Mini Bar" corner is on the left of this pic. I can't wait to start my own decor soon.

Anyway, my idea for our mini bar would be rustic, if possible build one with salvaged planks for the counter top and put up cozy lightings to compliment the atmosphere. I'd love to have these steel can lanterns to spice up the atmosphere. They look so lovely and romantic and not difficult to make.

Thanks Karen @ Maggie Makes for the great idea & Kate @ Design*Sponge for sharing it

Moreover, I love the energy saving idea. ;) So if you're ready to grab a hammer for knock-knock, go check it out!

Okay, and if anyone have empty coffee cans that I can salvage, do let me know, ya?  ;P

Have a great day!

Kotobian Tadau Tagazo do Kaamatan!

Kopivosian! Greetings! 
Harvest festival, the highlight of all Natives' celebration in Sabah is just around the corner. Exciting & heat competitions of Unduk Ngadau to see which young lady will be crown Miss Kaamatan.
I participated in the Kaamatan celebration of my husband's clan - Sinakagon Wong Loong on 10 May 2014 at Kg. Ramayah.
There were 2 main events for that day: Unduk Ngadau and Magagung competition. All 5 family branches produced various version of gong beating and rhythm. Every time when the gong beating start, I felt the echo of sound shook to the core of my soul. This is when I realised I have strong Kadazan gene in me too. I am so so proud to be a Sino-Kadazan!

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
