Tidy up a hoarder’s room

For the Chinese New Year, me and hubby spent 2 days tidy up our room.  We tried to tidy up before, but our determinations are not strong enough.  Every time we tried, we always kept a lot of useless stuffs with lot of excuses.  This year, we made it!!

2015 is a great year for both of us!  I made a lot of changes already, i hope to do more. Now our room is very clean and nice, still got some small area need a bit touching up.  Finally our room is free of stuffs!!!

I was following instructions from:






Sewing Kurti

I learned how to sew by myself, but didn’t know how to draft my own pattern.

This year I learned how to sew a kurti on YouTube.  And it’s still January, I already made 4! By making 4 different kurti, I learned how to adjust the pattern and explore different necklines.  I felt productive!  I mainly wear them to my Bharatanatyam classes.  My next target is sewing a saree blouse for me to wear dance saree.  🙂

Lord Ganesha

I did a painting of Lord Ganesha in Dec 2014!

I started learning Bharatanatyam from June 2013. Time flied so fast, it is already 1 year and 8 months! I performed a little dance to Lord Ganesha in the recital in Dec 2014.
My first dance 🙂

Sri Vakratunda Mahaakaaya
Gorbi Surya Sama Prabha
Nirvighnam Kuru me Deva
Sarvakaar yeshu Sarvadaa

Translation of the Mantra
Vakratunda – Curved trunk
Mahakaya – Huge form

Koti – Billion
Sama – Equal
Prabha – Splendor
Nirvighnam – No obstacles

O Lord Ganesha of the curved trunk and massive body, the one whose splendor is equal to millions of Suns, please bless me to that I do not face any obstacles in my endeavors.
