Sure you all dah jelak and muak bila I cerita pasal sewing yang tak habis2 ni kan, hehehe. Malam ni kita cerita pasal something else first kay! ;-)
Our Sydney trip next year is still undecided yet. The Uni still hasn’t given us the final go ahead or stop word yet so we all pun still terumbang ambing lagi. But at the same time, we still have to think and prepare for life in Perth in case we don’t go to Sydney next year especially when The Little Misses’ schooling is concerned. The Other Half and I had a chat a few weeks ago about taking both The Little Misses out of their current school and sending them to a different school.
Since Miss 10 is going to a different high school in 2 years time, next year we wanted to send her to the primary school yang bersebelahan dengan her high school so bolehlah dia berkenal2an dengan the kids she’s going to high school with kan. Tak lah nanti bila dia masuk high school, dia rasa terasing aje sebab tak kenal anyone there. But the primary school is out of our boundary zone so we had to apply to enrol in that primary school as an out of boundary student. And since we applied for Miss 10, we thought might as well tried our luck applying for Miss 6 as well. And then nak jadi cerita, our applications got accepted for both of them so they’ll be moving to a new primary school next year (if we are not going to Sydney lah :-)). Kiranya, they only have 3 more weeks untuk beramah mesra dengan their friends at their current school. I know they’ll miss some of their friends but nak buat macam mana kan, education is important….
And when we applied at that school, they sent us the book list, fees/charges list and the uniform list for next year. I pun tengok lah the fees and charges for next year. Terbeliak sekejap mata I bila baca Miss 10’s list sebab included in it is a $1500 charge for Year 7 school trip to Canberra! Ugkk… tak boleh nafas sekejap tengok how many zeroes in that, hehehehe. That’s 3 return tickets back to M’sia with MAS! I said to The Other Half, “this is only public school and yet there’s a $1500 trip to Canberra. Can you imagine how much that would have cost us if it was a private school!” But I guess Canberra is very far from Perth and with accomodation and meals included, tu yang mahal sangat2 jadi nya :-).
And then bila I baca Miss 6’s book list for Year 2 next year. Included in it is a USB thumb drive for them to use. Budak 6 tahun dah pakai thumb drive you! I masa kat Uni dulu pun masih lagi pakai floppy disc and I was way way older than 6 y.o. let me tell you, muahahahahaha. I’m just waiting for Miss 10’s book list in high school nanti sebab sure nya lah ada notebook or laptop in it kan.
Ok lah, dah abis cerita pasal The Little Misses, now I can cerita pasal sewing pulak… :-)
Untuk yang tertunggu2 gambar the dresses on the models, let me present the models to you. I still belum buat the finishing touches to the dress lagi, tu yang benang everywhere. And the top was a bit too besar for Miss 6 so I kena kecik kan and adjust the strap a bit. I ingat nak letak zipper on the back but zippers and I tak ngam, mesti nya akan a bit herot walau macam mana careful pun I jahit. So I’ve decided to put small hooks on the back ganti zips and buttons (but belum pasang the hooks lagi, esok kot or maybe next week kot, hehehe)..
Model yang kecik tu tak boleh jadi catwalk model lah sebab sure nya diaorang tak terima sebab terlebih berat badan, wekekekeke….. Yang besar tu kena tunggu dia habis pakai braces and meninggi baru boleh kot jadi catwalk model, wekekekekeke…..
