Actually, I meant to update about this since few days ago but the fact that I needed to install windows refrained me from doing so. The disk failed to partition so I went through the hassles of erasing my hard disk, booting, and formatting my mac. I called Apple Care support and they were very helpful and I somehow managed to partition and install windows 7 without a problem. Wasted a lot of time. Should’ve called ’em in the first place. yeah, silly me. sheeesh.
Well, at least now I know how to format, install, backup and restore on Mac. hahah. *sedapkan hati sendiri*
Anyhoo, I took some pictures while installing. So, lets see them first, shall we?
Oh, I love the fabric! It almost like splashes of paints in a glance, reminds me Jackson Pollock’s contemporary art, except it’s actually a more abstract form of flower print. heheh. As usual, I use Japanese cotton. The usual price is about RM48 (approx US$14.4) per meter, if I’m not mistaken. I saw this fabric a while ago but when I came back to get it, it wasn’t there. Then, I dug piles of remnant fabrics and found it, only RM30 (approx US$9) 2.6m! Am I lucky or what? 😀
For this particular dress, I used Celestina pattern from Burdastyle website. Much thanks to Eddie for making this possible :p Anyways, I modified the sleeves to be a straight sleeve, and made the hem shorter.The belt is supposed to be tied on the back, but I like it much better in front! hoho.
oh yeah, I now also can take a deep breath of relieve and so do you (maybe) since somebody is generous enough to offer a sponsorship for my blog! For some reason, he’s keeping his identity secret and won’t reveal even a name. It was only until I insisted that he told me to link to his website, Sejukz.org. Thanks so much! So, yeay! I’ll keep blogging! hehe :p
Now, moving on.
Today was first day of college! yeay! Most of the classmates had some transformation, mostly new hair. Few gained weight. Me included. hahah. College was weird. Lotsa new faces yet seemed very empty now that Hospitality & Tourism students moved to the new campus.
The first two classes was well… boring. hahah. Then, Meera, Danang, Muiz and I went to the new Taylor’s Lakeside campus to get the limited parking sticker.
We didn’t explore much. Basically just walked through to Architectural building which is not fully completed, probably why we are only moving there in April together with Mass Comm students. Can’t wait for all the shifting completed cause I wanna flirt with cute engineering students! Nah, just kidding. hahah. I actually can’t wait to use the massive library. and courtyard. hoho. Also, another good news is our studios are right beside the parking lot! woooo! 😀
Danang, reading the brochure. The building is obviously not fully completed yet. It’s far too new and foreign. Even Starbucks has not settled from their wheels yet (the red van). heheh. I’ll talk about the new campus later when we all moved there. Hopefully it will be more habitable. :p
I’m so excited for Design Studio 1 subject! Not sure if I’m gonna do well, but, I’m psyched nevertheless! In spite of that, I’m a lil’ frustrated because I don’t get the chance to sew a bubble dress I’ve been longing for, but my mum said that I should concentrate with my studies eventhough I know I could finish it before the lecturers give out assignments. Gagagaga….
I tried out Parallel Desktop 5 and it turns out that it actually integrates both Mac and Windows! Impressive huh? Check out the screenshot above and spot the differences! Well, actually, it’s not too impressive since it lags the computer a lil’ bit. So I guess if I were to use Autocad, maybe I should just boot to windows. 🙂
oh, special plug for Danang!
p.s, I like that red pants okay! hahah
