because the one we have right now is just ancient(not the actual one, but looks very very similar)
So today, I tried to make new covers for our throw pillows. Bought the cheapest fabric I could find. These are all beta versions so I must be frugal and if I’m able to perfect the prototype, then I can invest in more expensive fabrics, etc.
I admit I have no talent in sewing, but if I am to make the costumes of my future kids for school plays, then I must practice now (I have this notion that mothers should know a lot of things ranging from cooking, changing a light bulb, sewing your kids sunflower costume for a school play, and saving the world!).
I’m still trying to make one, hahaha. The old sewing machine won’t participate, darn it
Dahil disconnected kami sa Pilipinas nung bagyong basyang. Di ko naman pwede gamitin ng matagalan yung radio sa kotse dahil madidiskarga ang battery ni viktor, at lowbatt na ang mga cellphone ng mga tao para makinig sa radio via phone.
Parang di na ako natuto sa mga bagyong nagdaan sa buhay ko (literally & figuratively). Same thing with Pinas, can you believe, in the year 2010 ay nagkakabrownout pa tayo? I had to endure 22.5 hours of no electricity – short really, considering my aunt’s electricity came back around 48 hours after. Que horror.
Actually, mei kagandahan din namang naidulot ang brownout na yan:
1. Walang nakuryente ng mga nagbagsakang poste – we should really try to resolve this ugly problem. Most countries have their cable/electric lines underground, why can’t we? Besides, those posts are just eyesores and mess up a beautiful photograph (agree? agree!).
2. Nakapagexercise ako… ng aking braso. Imagine, 10,000x walis tingting strokes. Wish I took a photo of the scattered tree branches and leaves on our streets – but I was too overwhelmed by the sight, my compulsion to clean kicked in. First time ko din nakita mga kapitbahay ko after a long time, mga hindi nagsipasok sa opisina at nagaayos ng kanilang mga bahay hehe.
3. Was able to use all those scented candles I’ve accumulated from Christmases ago hehe.
Lastly, it felt good to be disconnected from the world for a while. No TV, No Radio, No Internet. Ang sarap ng tahimik ang mundo.
