Meeting my friends again after such a long time, we share our lives and laughter over delicious home-cooked meals, and consumed more beer than we should have,
When I think about how we met, I can’t help but smile at how wondrously life works and paths meet. It’s so heart-warming to know some things don’t change despite time and distance. But I’m still glad I visited because I believe new memories need to be made.
3. Japanese festivals
Especially those that celebrate or mark the changing seasons. So simple, so delightful.
The past couple of weeks felt like a whirlwind, but in a good sort of way. If you follow Cookie Cutter's Facebook Page, you'll probably know why. I was involved in The Book Show, an exhibition on arts and craft inspired by books. I made a set of plushies inspired by Alice in Wonderland, met lots of people on the opening day and had lots of fun. The exhibition has moved to another venue. It's currently at Lomography Gallery Store Singapore. So if you haven't checked it out, you can do so. It runs till 18 Nov.
Thanks to the exhibition, my plushies and I made a little appearance in the local broadsheet and I found out about this while I was visiting my Japanese "hometown". I was thrilled to share the news with my wonderful friends whom I haven't seen for a while. The week or so in Japan was like an emotional roller-coaster, filled with the highs of meeting after such a long time and also the lows of goodbyes very soon after. But I'm still very happy to have seen them as I believe new memories need to be made.
So, I guess there will be a few Japan posts coming up soon! Happy Monday, folks!
I can’t remember what book it was I read that planted the wild idea in my head of catching the aurora borealis one day. It’s not something which comes to mind right away when planning a holiday but it’s there at the back of my mind. Let’s just say, if I were to write a bucket list, it would feature in the list.
Guess what? Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland offers you the opportunity to lie in a beautiful glass igloo and watch the northern lights. How awesome is that?!!

Hi, I'm Sandy, a crafter from sunny Singapore. I handmake plushies, totes, and paper goods.
This is where I catalogue great designs, talk about my travels, and obsess over all things Japanese.
