It starts with Sew!

I signed up for Fashion Sewing 101 at Fashion Maker Space . If you guys are confused where it is, it’s on the second floor, next to 7-11 at 258A South Bridge Road.

Very near to Chinatown MRT station.

Alright, why Fashion Sewing 101? Because I figured I should start from the very basics even though I have done cosplays and whatnot like woah. Those are like… hack and dash. It works cause it works but this time I want to learn properly.

So Fashion Sewing 101 it is!

I was early so I got to choose my own seat. I got a little pack of informative stuff of where to buy fabric and haberdashery plus a diagram of sewing machine parts plus a piece of fabric to practice on.

This was totally for a beginner but I did learn things! Such as tension and what the zig zag stuff means and how to get the curves in stitching you want etc.

On my right was also samples of the various workshops/classes they hold.

It’s a fairly spacious space and there was another class going on, on the other side too.

This is me “tracing” the lines of what to do. You can see me experimenting after the instructor (Isabelle) told us how to use the different settings and what each one is needed for different materials.

I was legitly like “AaAAaaAAHhh?” but quietly in my mind.

Because I could technically do embroidery with my machine or even do finer sewing with the machine I have at home?!

In any case, it was a pleasant introduction to sewing whether if you are truly a super beginner or someone who needs brushing up in sewing.

I want to go to Fashion Sewing 102 now… Ah…

Eat like a Champ at Mahota!

On the road to DBS Marina Regatta 2018, one must eat like a champion to be a CHAMPION!!!!

Ok, ok. There was a sharing session by May Schooling (Joseph Schooling’s mother) on how she feeds her son and Benson the chef at Mahota on healthier cooking.

May Schooling told us for breakfast pretty much she makes fruit smoothies for her son. I thought that that was pretty simple, I could do that. Just choose my fruits, freeze in portions like what she does and then just blender it together with Greek yogurt and milk.

And then especially since he does train a lot, cheese toasties help for him since he does need carb replacement for energy so he wouldn’t “lose muscle”.

There’s parmesan for the umami melted in this toasty too but it is a simple enough recipe.

It’s Lazada’s 6th Birthday!

It’s Lazada’s 6th Birthday and they have a present for you!

Ok, what’s the details? Since it’s their birthday, there’s going to be discounts of up to 90% off, more than 600 flash deals and… up to $120 vouchers?!

In the previous birthday deals, I can’t remember they had that!

And ok, this is the year of huat aka 2018 so we might want to look nicer so there’s only 4 exclusive premium beauty boxes worth $100 but going at $50.

It’s probably some atas brand and all.

FeedMenang2 – In which we went to Penang to eat

A month or so ago we went to Penang to just eat.

REALLY WE DID.

Hence why our hashtag was a pun on FeedMenang2. I didn’t go to the first trip, just the second.

Anyway, our hotel was the Cititel Penang and it was the most convenient hotel to stay at since we mostly walked around to get to the food places.

Tips if you want to go for a weekender in Penang, install Grab. We used that to get from the airport to our hotel. It’s around 20-30 minutes journey from the airport to Cititel. After that it was walking for food for us.

BAM. Char kway teow from Bee Hwa Cafe (10 Lebuh Dickens, George Town, Penang Island). It is so good and that place also has good curry mee too. FYI, the food stuff in this post is Halal, so yeah.

We drank pat poh which is something like cincau but… DIFFERENT? It’s sweet, nice and cold in the heat of Penang.

Making cheese at Citizen Farm!

On an early Saturday morning I ventured all the way to 60 Jalan Penjara to visit the Citizen Farm. (Facebook is at Citizen Farm in case you want updates from them!)

There’s no penjara (jail) that I know of, just a nice edible garden farm of sorts.

My main reason was to attend the cheese making workshop by Annisa of Milky Whey Cheese who came all the way from Kuala Lumpur! (You can check out her instagram too at @milkywheycheese.)

Also that’s a chicken who was eating the mint on the other side before one of the Citizen Farm people shooed it away since his food was already in a tray.

Ohhhh my goodness. I learned how to make mozzarella cheese. The “instant” kind (aka took at least an hour) while Annisa brought some curds she had made in KL where it would take maybe 6-12 hours I think?? Anyway, since we only had 3 hours of the workshop, ours was a ‘fast mozzarella’ type.

Free Vlogging workshop!

Helloooo everyone!

Just for this 4 April, 3pm-5pm at level 5 of Scape, in The Arena, we’ll be holding a vlog workshop for FREE.

You can sign up here: https://www.milleniamotionpictures.com/vlogworkshop

Why is it free? Well.

Really.

Scape lets us rent the place for half a day a minimum and we are holding some other event in the evening leaving the afternoon unused.

So instead why not teach people who might be interested to know how to vlog at home or at events they’re at? That’s why you’re getting a free vlogging workshop!

Yeah, I’ll be there too so yeah, if you’re interested just sign up.

If you don’t have a camera, a phone works too. Basically I will teach what’s the cheapest way to do things and scale up if you’re interested to make things even more wow.

Happy Chinese New Year!

If you’re eating baulu, this is how it is made traditionally. I got to visit Joelyn to see how it is made (and eat it, hurhurhur).

I’ll have you know freshly made baulu is so, so good compared to baulu from the tupperware.

My friends and I have now a new tradition of taking a group picture in Overwatch during Chinese New Year since they have the place decorated! Also, it’s quite fun since we’ll be wearing our nicest skins just for the occasion.

Like how one really does real family/friends CNY photos at home.

And that’s it for this week.

It’s a chill week although, I’m checking out 2018’s All In! Young Writers Festival to see if I can volunteer for one day.

What Sarah Did: January

Was that me, did you think it was me and weren’t unsure? Well, these are my appearances in January that I know of. Let me know if I ever miss anything cause somehow I’m randomly around like an NPC?

Episode 3 of Buzzing Hawkers: https://video.toggle.sg/en/series/buzzing-hawkers/ep3/563248

I got to eat food, it was interesting being a taste tester. I did like the lamb chop.

The ministry of finance did a thing where they hired StarNgage, an agency for influencers and just tossed money to them to get their influencers to talk about Budget 2018.

I took the hashtag and did get top post in those weeks so HAH. Anyway, was it a good or bad thing the ministry did?

BAMMM I learned I made an appearance in this article which has a marketer’s point of view on it which was pretty insightful. You can read the article here:

Should the Finance Ministry Have Used Bad Publicity to Amplify its Influencer Campaign? by Logen Lanka :

Also here is a bonus:


This is my own “media” so I don’t know if it’s considered a cameo but if you’re following my instagram or youtube, I’m posting up food videos and have a #foodfriday thing too.
