My first card design

I just pieced together my own card design today. Just for fun!
Here's a preview.. actually looks like a ransom note of sorts.

Did I say that the movers were great? Here's the link.


Finally, the packing's done

The final count is in! We have 37 boxes! Moving on to the nxt chapter of our lives, we packed up the bed, sofa, wall sculptures.. That's all we've been doing the past wk; rushing home after work, taking leave from work, leaving Kaylen at our parents' during the wkend waking hours. We sorted out what we needed to trash, store in Singapore and packed the rest into boxes.

I'm a sentimental person and keeping clothes and little trinkets from 10 years ago keeps me grounded and remembering those snippets of my life, or that was just my belief. But not anymore, for our family of 3 moving our Singapore life to the other side of the globe in 13 cubic metres of space. I threw out 1/3 of my belongings, stored the other 1/3 at my mum's as 'To be reviewed in a couple of years' and finally the forward-thinking 'Now, now, now!'

It feels good.

I think I'm ready. Well, it's just. The boxes are gone.

Making the decision

After 2 months of deliberating on my options, finally got the courage to leave behind my extended family of colleagues, many of whom are now my dear friends, to become a fulltime mummy & wife... This was a particularly difficult decision esp since I immensely enjoy the company, management, team of wonderful folks and pretty much the culture of working in American Express... True enough, once the decision was shared, the support given by the management was 101%... nothin lesser... God, it made the mental preparation to leave all the more agonising!

4 dec, company announcement was made and come 5 dec, the packing begins! This is nothing like what I had in mind.. Last I moved to Australia for further studies in 2001, it was just a huge suitcase of clothes & shoes.. Now, we're talking abt a minimum of 20boxes and a freaking container that takes 3 wks to reach our destination! It's also abt clearing out a 3-bedroom apartment with paintings & wall installations (not that we hung many up since our plc was still a WIP), a piano, dining set and a storeroom full of golf items, shoes & bags!

How do I feel? Excited really because this is my first big project for our lil family of 3!
