"Welcome! I live on the 2nd floor"...

After 3 years in Miri, we had finally left the Seahorse city of Sarawak for good. We were actually not there since May, only came back to pack things up in July. Luckily , we had movers to do most of the job.

Once again, new house and new neighbours - thanks to the nature of my dear hubby's job. We are now staying not so far from our families. Glad to be back with them after years of being away (far away) from them.

There are still boxes & bundles to unpack in our hobby room. We are practically surfing the net amongst those boxes & bundles. Hope that by the end of the year, everything will be in their right places. We purposely postponed getting a phone line, thinking of the boxes & bundles were occupying our house in first 2 months here. Applied for the phone line & broadband in the 3rd week of September. Well, thing didn't work as fast as we expected. Back online barely 2 days ago (a week before, the phone line was finally installed).

I was actually delighted when our new neighbours greeted us on 1st day here. Not all urbanites are snobbish afterall. Furthermore, the place where we live is truly Malaysia - Malays, Chineses, Indians & Sikhs (major ethnics) live harmoniously in spite of the hectic,bustling urban lifestyle. And what I love most to be back in the city is the amenities & services that I need are plentiful and more accessible.

I will write more on my needlecraft activities for the past few months in next posting. Thank you for your emails & comments. To Gina & Isabelle - I will email you back. And to Ann Lee - hope to hear from you soon. To all crafting bloggers, it is envious to see the pics of your great finishes in your blogs.
