Jahit Tepi Halus

Mocha Brown shawl yang dah siap dijahit tepi

Busy sket 2-3 menjak sbb nak siapkan orders, tiba2 ada rush order utk jahit tepi halus, kuantiti masih dalam lingkungan boleh di buat utk dlm masa 3 hari.

Proses jahit tepi kadang2 boleh buat rasa nak karate mesin jahit.  But most of the time it wasn’t the machine’s fault but fabric.

Lain fabric lain rupa jahit tepi tu bila dh siap walaupun setting dan benang sama. Yg paling tension bila jahitan tk nak lekat bila guna kain chiffon. Jahitan tu mcm tk “menggigit” kain, lagi² kalau kain chiffon tu jenis yg ira dia jarang² (biasa chiffon jenis ni guna utk buat lining) Jadi “tips” saya kalau nak jahit tepi kain jenis mcm chiffon ni, terutama di bahagian kain yg melawan arah ira kain atau bahagian yg dipotong serong atau melengkung, semasa nk jahit tu jahit ke dalam lebih sikit, maksudnya kena potong tepi kain tu dgn pisau mesin jahit tepi lebih ke dalam sikit jgn sipi hujung sgt, nnt mesti jahitan tk lekat.

Benang pon guna boleh tahan banyak guna kalau jahit tepi halus ni, sediakan benang extra kalau nk jahit banyak ok.

Home Business Essential - Mini Studio

Oh this is pretty cool. I should make a series of home business essential  entry :) to share my own experience running home base business.  I’m in the opinion that home base business should not be treated as a third class business since more people are now switching to work at home rather than working at office 9 to 5. Don’t get me wrong, I am not against people who are working at the office, it just that if happens you got  the time and opportunity to run your own business at home, I would say go ahead. Why not, aight?

So, doing 2 job in a time is never easy and if you are mother of 6 children (for example) things are tougher for you. Don’t ever wish for an angle or fairy god mother will fall from sky to assist you – because they don’t exist (but if they do, I want a fairy god mother too ehe), what you actually need is a guidance or tips on how to make it work conveniently and professionally, since you are doing 2 jobs in a time.

Previously I blog about Courier Bag where you can easily post your goods without a need to wrap your product especially things like scarf, clothes , supplement and etc. You can just put the item in the plastic, seal it and post it.Easy peasy.

The tent is quite big, I think manusia also can masuk and bergambar dalam ni ehe.

This time around, I wanna blog about my new helper aka my new mini studio made of a white cube/tent. I called it helper since it is  indeed very helpful. All these while it took me about 10-15 minutes to set up my own “mini studio” which sometimes made me feel very detested and terribly lazy to shoot my products, and don’t make me start with the lighting. It was a very painful experience to get a good lighting or to get the lighting to co-operate with you. But whatever it is, you got to have a stunning photo for your products, because beautiful photos  is vital in converting your website visitor to sales.

But now not anymore, I got a white cube tent which is super easy. I’ll just  need to place my product inside this cute tent and snap the pic. Oh btw, you may need few source of light also to make sure the white background glowing and not dim/grey-ish. In my case, I prefer to use natural source of light provided by god – the sun. Hehe. Lucky, there’s an open area in my house, not really open like without roof….there’s a roof but it was made from a transparent plastic roofing so the sunlight can still penetrate through.

So, I shoot the product during day time and result as above.  I bought the tent since a friend of mine wanna hire me to shoot her products, she got like more than 100 products to shoot. So, adalah pitam nak set mini studio manually and edit the picture because surely I need to edit the background to be as white as possible,  nk buat sekali dua kali no sweatttt….but if nak edit sebanyak 100 kali? Pengsan mak ok.

As you know I don’t take any portraiture photography job, but for product shoot…yes, because it’s much simpler and the object is not a living a thing. Hehe. Price is RM6 per photo and RM1.50 for 1 DVD. Service that I provide;

1) Shooting
2) Editing
3) Watermarking (logo or watermark provided by customer in PSD/PNG format, I will just drag it onto the photo)

However, please be inform that I do this ONLY when I’m a little free yah. If I’m not free and busy with my biz, afraid I can’t shoot. Oh by the way, I bought the white cube tent at Digital Mall, Petaling Jaya. I believe you can get it from other camera & photography shop as well. Price is ranging from RM120-RM200 depending on size. Quite expensive, maybe other shop is cheaper, couldn’t’ be bother to check at other shop sbb malas and knowing me , semua benda nk cepat and tak boleh tunggu punya orang.

Till then…daaa.

Living Room Dates

I have been married for 3 years to my favourite guy. Throughout the years, never once we feel bored about our marriage, instead we keep looking forward for the next day to come as we can’t wait to shower each other with lotsss of love every today and tomorrow.

Sometimes I always wonder why people keep on saying that after get married for few years, things will change. For me yeah..true things do change, but in a better sense. From my experience some people give me and husband a detested look when we kiss and hugging publicly. I was like what’s wrong? We don’t do any intimate gesture(mind you), it is only a normal,innocent kind of kissing and hugging. Shall you feel that kind of love showing is inappropriate and embrassing, I feel sorry for you. Seriously.

Some also say that we still in honeymoon mode because we don’t have any child (just yet!). Ok, I can’t wait to for that moment to come so that I could prove to them, they are I indeed wrong. They should not get the idea wrong, babies/child is going to streghten the bonding in between yourself and husband. I know that things might be little bit stressful and chaos when your babies get cranky. But, a good understanding in between a wife and a husband shall enable the couple to sail smoothly in the fierce ocean.

I can’t say much about this, but once I got the oppurtunity to experience this, I will for sure pen it down here.

Actually, there are many ways to improve your love life. Some simple things sometimes means a lot to our spouse or partner. Like me, everytime when I pick up my husband from work, I will look out of my car’s window and waiting for his appearance. Once I saw him, I know he will be looking for me (and my car) as well, so once he spotted me we will instantly exchange flying kiss, waving hand and wear such a grateful smile on our face as if we have not been seeing each other for such a long period. The distance from where I normally park my car to the factory’s gate is about few metres away, I think in within 20 meters away. That’s pretty far but distance isn’t matter to us. That’s how we survived our 5 years long distance relationship I guess.

Kalau antara benua boleh bercinta, takkan setakat 20 meter tk boleh nk tunjuk cinta?

I do some research and there are actually many methods to enhance your relationship with your husband and preserve it. Perhaps you can try my method that I mention above like kissing, hugging, flying kiss and wear such a lovely smile on your face. It’s simple and easy but it does wonders or you can try the following living room dates that don’t even require leaving home;

1. Have a Picnic on the Floor. This is one place where the weather won’t change. The conditions in your home are perfect for a picnic anytime. Spread out the traditional gingham blanket and let the fun begin. Turn off the television and turn on the environmental music sounds to achieve the full effect of the outdoor atmosphere.

2. What about a Movie Night? We all like to turn down the lights and enjoy a good flick. This type of date is perfect for parents of small children. Once the little ones are tucked in bed and off in la-la land, set the scene. Pop a large bag or two of popcorn and your favorite drinks and snuggle up on the couch or a blanket on the floor. Take turns watching each other’s favorite type of movies.

3. Game Night. What are your favorite games? Mix it up a bit between board games, video games, and kid’s games. Yes, I said kid’s games. You and your husband can play hopscotch, Twister, or I Spy. The night is about laughs and getting to know each other again, so have fun with it.

4. A Night of Karaoke Fun. You may not sound like a professional songstress, but that shouldn’t stop you from having a good night of laughs singing your heart out. Sing romantic songs together that you enjoyed when you were dating. Go one step further and dress the part before the performance. Take turns singing love songs to each other.

5. Spend a Winter in the Mountains. If it’s cold outside, find warmth around a cozy fire. Light some candles for a romantic mood. Make a cozy pallet on the floor and serve hot cocoa with marshmallows. Enjoy some cheese, and fresh fruit together to help you keep warm.

6. What about a Spa Night? Dress up in terry cloth robes and fuzzy slippers. Give each other manicures and pedicures. Men aren’t too practiced in this area so your handiwork may look better than his, but it is the thought that counts. Finish up with massages.

7. Night at the Strip Club. For a bit more seductive living room date, take it all off – literally. Leading up to the date, pick out your outfits and practice your “routine.” Don’t take it too seriously though. Have some fun with it and each other.

You don’t have to leave your home to have an interesting date. Turn your living room into any locale you can imagine to make it fun and out of the ordinary. I have yet to try all of the above method as I don’t own a house yet. We live with our parents and it’s awkward to do all that with the present of parent and sibling. Oh, we do by the way bath together :)

So, mind sharing with others your romance tips?
