Paper Quilling: Happy Chinese New Year 2015!

Hello, beautiful dolls!

It has been a really long time since my last post. I would like to say, "Happy Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai". Wishing you and your family a very healthy, wealthy, happy, and prosperous year. In Indonesia, Chinese new year also mostly known as "Imlek" and it's celebration was banned due to previous government rule. However, since the government regime shifted in 2000, up to today Chinese family in Indonesia are free to celebrate Chinese new year.

I always love to celebrate any special days, so does Chinese new year. Since we have many Chinese family, friends, and relatives, I make a little greeting by using paper quilling card. It take only take two days to make the whole part of the card. For the base of the card, I use my old stock of friends' wedding invitation. I wonder since it is not possible for me to keep all the invitations then I better recycle than throw it away. So, here is some shots of them.
Chinese new year 2015 is the year of wooden goat. Prediction say that the year of goat will lead us to relatively stable health throughout year. I'm actually not a type of fortune teller-things person but if the predictions say good things then let's be happy and wish for it to be come true. Well, since 2015 is the year of goat then I make figures of goat in my paper quilling. I hope it still looks like a goat, LOL! :))
So, that's all I can share for now. I hope you like my works. Stay healthy, stay pretty. See you again, Dolls in my next post, and last but not least Happy Chinese New Year! :)

Graduation Album

Hellooooooo, pretty dolls!

How are? Hahaha it's been more than half year I did not write anything on my blog. Pardon me, seriously I was truly busy and did nothing about paper quilling things. Too bad, yes I know. My times was consumed by a lot of works and study that I have to deal with. Well, since the last semester I am finally takin my master of art degree, taking communication studies as my major. A lot of things happened, a lot of changes happened. My life which is previously filled with busy works then become way busier with writing, researching, exam, tasks, and so on. However, I consciously choose to go back to school and pursue my master degree, so I enjoy it.

Well, talking about school. I just finished my final exam on the first semester and now having a -quite- long holiday. Actually, I am planning to start writing my thesis proposal, having quality discussion with my friends, and finishing some works. Besides that, I also want to start doing some quilling projects again since I do miss my colorful paper! :D

Before I start to post some new quilling works that I will -SOON- make, I am going to post one of my paper quilling works which I made in 2011. Talking about school, I was graduate from my bachelor degree on 2011 and had so many photo sessions. I took a session with my family, a session with our friends, and a session with my man. Right after I had my photos printed, I got no clue where would I save them. I went to some shops to find cute photo album but found nothing. So, I decided to create it by my self.

Actually, I made it from recycled materials. It was wedding invitation,old ribbon, and old black manila paper. I did not want to trash the invitation but it almost impossible to keep them at the same time, so I thought it better for me to turn it into a new form.

I put all the photos of my session with our friends on it. Too bad, I did not shoot the inside part. Hope to be able to share some good news and new creation in super soon. So many ideas are running through my head. See you later, dolls!

I wrote some of them in my blog in here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. See, what a kind heart person she is! :D

Well, now she is holding a giveaway to celebrate her 700 blog followers. 700? Wow, it is a huge number. Seriously. I still remember that I follow her blog on March last year and now the blog is already having 700 followers, wow! I do believe that a blog which contain great contents, share great ideas and tips, and inspiring must be able to attract many user to follow the blog. And of course, the blog owner must be able to build mutual conversation, dialogue, and interactivity with their followers. Lulu did the job very well and I really really learn from that. I hope that I can do the same. Be more productive in my blog, post regularly, and maintain mutual relationship with the followers. *tears drop*.

Okay, I stop babbling and get back to the topic. As my previous statement, Lulu is holding a giveaway and it is open for anyone to participate as long as you guys follow the rules. And here are the rules:

Right after you follow them, you have to tag them so that Lulu can put your name on her list. Anyway, do you know that she is a mommy already? Yes, she is a mommy of an adorable son, named Mason. What I like for the most is she has a baby already but she still looks like a girl. She is pretty, having the shape, and of course she is a great mommy. Seriously, I want to be like her, pretty and get back in the shape after giving birth my future kids. Amen. Well, okay continue to the rules.

The three winners of blog post will have voucher to shop in Palacio de Bella each IDR 500K and the winner of instagram and keek will receive her handmade things. I don't have to say anything about her handmade. All you have to do is just visiting her blog and you will say nothing but "WOW!".

(Lulu's Little Family: Baby Mason, Lulu's Husband, Lovely Lulu)

Okay, back to the giveaway. Talking about "10 things you know about Lulu", if you guys are ever reading her blog you will find that she is really open and true to her self. And it makes me a little confuse how to summarize her self in 10 things only hahaha but here I am trying to figure it out (It is going to be a long long loooooong post seriously):
1. She is a pretty lady who loves God and her family to the death.
It is no secret any more that Lulu is a pretty lady. Everybody knows it, realize it, and admit it. She always looks gorgeous, pretty, and fashionable in any given moment. But, she is not just having a pretty face. She is really affectionate specifically to her family. She loves her family so much, so that she can do anything, sacrifice everything for her family. As I know she adore her mom so much, she wants to be as great as her mom, and I am sure she will. She will be a great mom for Baby Mason. She is also loving her husband really much. Many times she writes about how thankful she is and how in love she is with her husband. What makes it real sweet is that his husband also really open to show his love to her. Lucky wife! She also loves her sister, brother, and in-laws. And she is really close to her granny (amah). Lulu (who was born in Halloween day) really close to her granny, when she was kid she always seek her granny becuase her granny let her to consume instant noodle. You should follow her instagram and see that how close they are. And most of all, she loves God really much. She is sure that everything that ever happened to her life is happening as what God planned already. She said that all that matters is being a good person who scare of God and follow His rules
2. She is a genius awesome adorable professional make up artist.
Another no secret, she writes in her bio that she is a professional make up artist. The best graduate of International Beauty School of Martha Tilaar, the most prestigious beauty school in Indonesia. She was not just a talented and passionate student, but also a lovely and friendly person. She is a supportive friend (it showed from her attitude of defending her friend when her friend got intimidated from other person. you can read it here) and she is friendly yet stylish because she knows everyone in her school, make friends with a lot person, and stylish because she does care about her appearance.
3. She loves doing something beautiful. Make the world become beautiful. The person and things inside it.
She is beautiful and she loves everything to be beautiful. She has a really pretty face, great taste and style, awesome skin. She loves to decorate her house and things and makes it real better. She loves to craft and turning old things into a new beautiful stuff. And she make it her self! She loves to make other people beautiful directly and indirectly. Directly by make up-ing them with beautiful colors and indirectly by asking everyone to be a better person.
4. She is a true person. It is better to be hated of being true instead of being loved but fake.
Her line of "better to be hated of being true instead of being loved but fake" is still fresh on my mind. I do agree and favourite this line. She is truly shows her self, she doesn't care if any other people dislike or even hates her. She might ever be the person who got many problems when she was in school but the best part is she never feels intimidated. Well, it turns me into an idea of asking her if she ever wants to share how to avoid any bullies in school. I didn't say that she might be the victim of bullying but I am sure that she can be a motivator yet inspiring our teenagers outside how to love your self, be confidence, and avoid any bullying issue.
5. She is a great cooks!
I never taste her cooking before but since she posts many of her cooks, I am sure that it will taste real delicious. She ever said that her mom taught her and her siblings to be able to cook so that they could keep their health and avoid any MSG/re-used oil that probably being used by any restaurant. She cares about health not just her self but also for her family and other people. It shows from her really loooooong request when she&her husband was having dinner at restaurant. She asked the waitress to use no MSG and re-used oil for their dishes. She shared it through her blog and asked all the readers to avoid MSG and re-used oil since it is dangerous for the health. But what I like is she doesn't force her life style to others. If other people doesn't want to follow her life style then it is fine for her. Well, talking about MSG, she also didn't drink (avoid/lower the frequency of consuming) any soda and instant noodle since it contains MSG. But, since instant noodle is delicious sometimes she can't help her self for consuming. :p
6. She is a royal and generous person.
Some of you guys must be feel so "WOW" when you read about her make up haul. All those fancy things and adorable stuffs she bought must be shocking. Be honest, some of you guys must be ever wondering how much money did she spend to buy them all, and some of you guys may ever be thinking that she just want to show off her fancy stuffs, the worst some of you guys maybe jealous on her. But guys, seriously you just have to see from different perspectives. Instead of she loves the brand and stuffs, she is a professional make up artist. So, it is understandable for her to have a lot of make up stuffs. And do you think she just show off? I don't think so. It is proven that she is a generous person. How many times did she hold any giveaway moment? And based on my experience, she gave good stuffs in good quality, so it is not true if you guys think that she just show off. I do disagree.
7. She loves to share.
She loves to share, it is undoubtedly. What I mean here is not that she loves to share her stuffs in giveaway but she loves to share her life, experience, and tips. Whenever I read her blog it feels like a friend of mine (though we never meet in person yet) is talking to me. Sharing her life, her experiences, and tips about everything. How many times did you see her self sharing her personal life stories and it turns you into nothing but feeling entertained and laugh. She can tell her stories in funny ways! She also loves to share her experience when people asks her about her experiences/opinion towards something. She also loves to share tips, how many times did you see her post about tutorial in make up or crafting post? I talked to her and asked her some things about crafting and make up, and she answered it in detail. I really like and appreciate it!
8. She is a Movie Freak.
She and her husband are a couple who loves to watch movies. They always go to watch good movie anytime the theatre plays it. When there isn't any good movies, they will watch bluray in their house. She loves any kind of movies and serial especially the Korean and Hollywood. Some facts about movies, she and her husband are having hard drive that contains numbers of great movies. Other fact (and it is quite funny), when they watch movies there are remote around them and when they watch movies it will spread anywhere. So, Lulu made a DIY box to place the remote. The great part is that Lulu made the box from recycling her lamp's boxes. She turns the old box into an adorable one!
9. She Has a Beautiful Fairy Tale Wedding.
Anyone who ever read her post about her wedding must be happy and envy at her at the same time. She has a REALLY beautiful wedding. She had her dreams came true. She had a groom who loves her and her family unconditionally. She had her dressed designed and sew from her favourite fashion designer, Seba. She had her make up her self. Oh this part is really great, I was so shock when I know this. She did it very well. It is unusual for a bride doing her make up her self but she does and it was greeeeeeat! She had the lace and roses she loves as the decorations on her wedding. She was surrounded by her family and friends at her happiest moment. She had her prewedding photo session dreams came true. She wanted to be able to have her prewedding photo in Jeju Island, South Korea and it came true! And it is completed with her honeymoon trip in Maldives. She is a really lucky person, she is blessed, and even though her life seems like living in fairy tale but she is a down to earth person. She never meant to be an arrogant person.
10. She Used to be a Tomboy Girl.
I wasn't believe if she did not tell us her self in her blog. She said that when she was in senior high school, she used to ride a motorcycle. She did not want to take her car and ride the bike her self. I just could not believe that she ever be a tomboy girl but it was true! Unfortunately, she got an accident and injured. :(

Well, talking about Lulu is not enough if it is only in 10 points. But we have to jump to the next topic, the "15 things she likes". It is another not easy thing to do because she loves many things but here I try to summarize it up.
1. Rose and Lace!
Rose and lace are the things she definitely likes. It shows in everywhere, in her blog design, pictures, stories, creations, etc. She loves lace accent on her stuff (you know, her wedding dress are great and full of lace), she loves any roses to be in her house. She decorates her house with rose arrangement, rose decorations (she made some DIY door and car accesories) from imitation rose and handmade ribbon roses. She is so sweeeeeeet!
2. Teddy Bear
Teddy bear is another thing that she likes. I don't know for sure about the number but I am sure that she has manyyyyyyyy teddy bear dolls in her house. As I remember, she also put some teddy bear dolls in Baby Mason's room.
3. Crafting
No wonder, she loves crafting really much! She likes to recycle old things and decorate it into a new one. She likes to make any pretty handmade stuff such as jewelery (I personally love her tutorial about how to make handmade pearl and ribbon necklace), recycling old hat into a new one, mirror (oh I adore her creations!), hair pin (the rose ribbon tutorial, thank you Lulu!), storage boxes (she inspires me to make any storages that is made of recycled stuff), etc. Some of her friends ever asked her whether she will sell her handmade or not. She said that she is not going to sell it yet, but maybe next time she will. She also made some crafting stuff such as table lamp, door accesories, and drawers for her sis&mom-in law birthday gift. She is so creative and I do agree the word she said that "creativity is no limit".
4. Perfume
She loves perfume! You should read her post and you will be amazed when you stare on her perfume collections. She loves to collect and use perfume. As she loves rose, she likes her perfume to be designed and/or consist of rose fragrance. There are numbers of perfume she has, but she has some favourite perfumes such as Princess by Vera Wang, Chance by Chanel, Flight of Fancy by Anna Sui, Guilty by Gucci, Rose Essentialle by Bvlgari, Rose Glacee by Armand Basi, and Parisienne by YSL which she likes for the most.  5. Pearl and Bling
She likes pearl and bling! As you can see in most of all handmade she makes there will always be pearl or bling. I personally like pearl because of its colour and I think it is pretty to be putted in anywhere. It will makes your handmade creation become way prettier. About bling? Yes she loves bling. Some people doesn't like or perhaps they just don't brave enough to use bling, but Lulu loves it! She can put bling into her accessories or her creations and it looks stylish yet glamour. I love the way she cover Swarovski in her iPhone case, it is full of bling. Seriously, it is so glamorous and pretty! :)
6. Bird Nest and Her Beauty Routine
Lulu is a pretty girl who is taking care of her beauty both internally and externally. Internally, she always consume juice (especially tomato juice) and mineral water. She also consume bird nest which is really good for your health. Bird nest is not only good for people who got cough, prevent cancer, and contains antioxidan, but also really good for your skin. Bird nest will be able to moisturize your skin. Lulu always consumes the bird nest in a cup three times a week. No wonder she has a great skin! For externally, Lulu always uses sunscreen anytime she goes out and has her spa routine once in two week. She loves to take her spa in Martha Tilaar Spa because their treatment is good and suitable for her. Some treatment package she loves such as Balinese Coconut Treatment, Chocolate Rose Treatment, and Dewi Sri Body Bliss.
7. Cat Eyes, Urban Decay, and Bobbi Brown
Lulu loves to make up, it is no secret. She loves to make up her eyes and she loves to apply cat eyes on her eyes. When I say she loves, I mean that she really really really loves it! I could say that cat eyes is one of her signature make up. She does it perfectly, guys! Talking about make up on eye, she loves some brands about eye make up such as Urban Decay and Bobbi Brown. She likes Urban Decay for her eyeshadow base and Bobbi Brown for gel eyeliner. She feels that those brands are suit for her and I think she doesn't want to move to another brand. :p
8. Anna Sui
Talking about brand, another brand she loves is Anna Sui. She really really really loves Anna Sui. Besides loving their product quality, she also loves the rose design in Anna Sui's packaging. If I am not mistaken, she has a glass cupboard that display her Anna Sui collections and guys seriously it is soooooooooooooooo pretty! Some of her Anna Sui favourite stuff are shampoo and conditioner, body lotion, and lip crayon. I personally ever won one of her giveaway and received an Anna Sui mousepad. My opinion? It is pretty and classy! I love the design, it is so girly even its background is black. Love!
9. Photography
She loves photography as she took her photography course in Darwis Triadi, one of the best photographer in Indonesia. Her photography works are great! Sometimes she use her Nikon D700 or iPhone camera to capture the beauty of everything. I personally envy of her photography ability. I really really want to be able to take good photos also because it will help me much to capture the good side of my creation. Too bad, I am not so good in taking photograph. Lulu's photos are awesome, besides it, she has a great taste, artistic and esthetic. I am seriously envy with her ability. LoL!
10. Cooking
As a great mom and wife, Lulu is great in cooking! If you follow her instagram or keek account, seriously her food photography will turn you into famine. You will instantly feel hungry because the food seems delicious. With her great ability of photography, she capture the photo of her foods artistically. 
12. Handcream
She loves handcream! As I know, she already tried some brands of handcream but there are nothing compare to her killer handcream. Seriously, Lulu is not only pretty but also genius. She makes her own handcream that consists of rose, chamomile oil, and some ingredients from France and Germany. Too bad I lose on her previous killer handcream giveaway. I was dying to have it actually. Anyway, I used to be a person who doesn't really care with hand treatment but since Lulu post about handcream and its importance, well now I am a person with a big love to handcream. Thanks, Lulu!
13. Adrenaline Seeker
Lulu is a pretty, classy, elegant, smart, and adrenaline seeker lady! Wow! It surprised me to know that she is an adrenaline seeker. She loves to play roller coaster and any other attraction that brings her into an adrenaline moment. I don't know what to say but seriously I am shock hahahaha.
14. Dog
Lulu loves dog and puppies. As I remember, one of hers (or her sister's) name is Pixie (who lives in Ketapang) and her own dog's named is Gaby. She used to have a dog named Bobby but he was dead when she was in junior high school. I actually afraid of dog but I love the way Lulu dressed up Pixie and Gaby. They are so funny! :)
15. Lovely Lace
Nah, as the person who loves lace really much Lulu loves the Lovely Lace. Lovely Lue's name is inspired from Lovely Lace, place that perhaps become one of her heaven on earth. She loves the pretty stuff that they sell. I never go to Lovely Lace before but I am sure to death that I will like it! :D

Talking about Lulu is not enough in 15 points and I can't help my self to talk more about her hehe. So, here are some extras:
16. Nail Polish and Nail Art
Lulu loves her nail to be polished! I consider I never she her photos without nail polish. Her nail always be polished and sometimes covered by nail art. I do not know how could she be soooooo nearly perfect. She can make up her face, has gorgeous skin, cook delicious foods, create pretty stuff, good skill in photography, and make beauuuuuutiful nail art. Sooooooo gorgeous!
17. Aurora Borealis
She loves aurora borealis soooooo much. Well, who doesn't love? Hahaha it is soooo pretty.
18. LOL!
I never meet her in person but I am sure she is a funny girl because she loves to say "LOL!" in almost all of her post! Seriously, there will always "LOL!" there. LOL! 
19. True Person
She likes person who is true. No hidden agenda, no drama, no fake empathy, she loves people who is truly show their self. She hates haters and copycaters.
20. iPhone
Who doesn't? Hahaha. She loves her iPhone. She has BlackBerry and iPhone but she loves iPhone more (even if she ever had her really old BlackBerry that she still keeps). iPhone is the real smartphone for her.
21. K-Pop
She likes Korean music and drama series. She is a fan of Big Bang and she has Korean drama collections since yeaaaars ago. She also likes the make up of Korean star.

Back to the quilling issue, I just open this site and find a comment from Adhiraacreations about my paper quilling works which was ordered from our post-graduate student.

Happy Wedding, Imma and Uni! :)

Hello, Dolls!

How are you? It has been a really long time since my last post. Life has been so busy these days. All the works have to be done and its report should be submitted before the end of this year. Seems like my work life would be an extraordinary busier on the last semester of the year forward. 

The business routine takes me nowhere but my office (and its trip to some cities). I have no time to create new paper quilling works for about this past three months. It is sad, seriously. I am longing to make new stuff, I bought some new papers, but I do not have enough time to even make one. Even though I did not make any new paper quilling works these days but I make some others in previous months and I did not post it yet. Here I will share it to you. Pardon the bad photography quality. I shot it by my self using camera phone, so that the quality is quite low. :(

This paper quilling work was an order from a post-graduate student in our campus. He ordered a wedding greeting for his sister that also could be used as a hanging wall decoration. I received this order in September and done it for only 2-3 days while working my works on campus.

He said he came from Makassar (South Sulawesi Province) and hardly looking for paper quilling crafter in Jogja to make the wedding greeting for his sister, Imma. Imma is a paper quilling crafter in Makassar. She loves paper quilling and already create some paper quilling works there. Talking about the order, he ask that the greeting must be made in orange and stated the name, date, and greeting for the newly wed couple. Based on the request, I made lettering paper quilling and here it goes! (I am telling you, the photo quality are low. Really sorry).

I hope they will be happy receive this gift. Happy wedding, Imma&Uni. May all the goodness, happiness, and prosperity be with your family. :)

Lovely Lue Birthday Giveaway! :D

Hello, Dolls!

Its been a long long looong time I did not write any. Seriously, I have to beg for your apologize because I did not even write any and truth is I am so busy, truly busy until I don't think I can even move. :(

This month, our office is holding an event named Festival Kreatifa 2012. This is a creative advertising festival consist of some related programs such as advertising competition for students, advertising&enterpreneurship conference, social media management and branding workshop, advertising exhibition, also awarding night. We are collaborating with Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economics to hold the event and seriously we are sooooo busy.

Besides holding Festival Kreatifa 2012, we also collaborate in a fiction publication mapping which is held on 12 cities around Indonesia. I just get back from Surabaya, East Java last week to host the event. Previously, already held in Yogyakarta, Bandung, and Denpasar. This week, we will hold the event on Padang and will be scheduled on the next other cities. Besides holding those events, I currently writing a research journal and to be honest all of the works are taking a lot of my times and energy so that I didn't make much paper quilling works these days. :(

Truth is, I actually making some new stuffs but too bad I didn't copy the file from Dhidha's camera yet so that I couldn't post anything new. Well, I made some paper quilling works these days and I promise to upload it soon.

Well, today I am going to share another giveaway from our dear pretty dolls, Lovely Lue. Yes, she is holding a giveaway again! Yeay, I still remember how happy I was when she wrote about my winning on her previous giveaway, yeay! When I receive the gift, I am so surprised because all the gifts are so pretty and adorable. I couldn't ask for more because I love all the stuffs she gave. The Lioele BB Cream are so adorable, either the Etude nail polishes. And now she is coming back hosting a giveaway for her birthday! :D

Kind a little different than her previous giveaway, in this time Lulu is not only give the opportunity to choose the gift we like but also ask us to create and/or write something about the gift we choose. She gives us three options about the gift. The first one is bird nest (sarang walet), the second one is Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette, and the last but surely never least craft equipment. Sounds delicious, right? :D

If she usually ask us to write down about the giveaway and tell one or two about her blog, now she also challenges us to create something about the gift we choose! :D

She lets us to choose which gift we love the most then we have to accept her challenge. If you choose the first give then you have to write down the reason why do you follow her blog, why do you choose the gift, and write down your ideas about bird nest. Either with the other two gifts, she asks us to write down the reason why do you follow her blog, why do you choose the gift, and create a cat eye look (if you choose the NAKED 1 Palette) or post your DIY craft creations (if you choose the Craft Equipment). For detail information you can easily check it out in her pretty blog

And yes, I am joining her giveaway with this blog. Related to the gifts, I choose the third one, Craft Equipment! Sure, I love crafting and this gift is extremely tempting! :p

(Lovely Lue Birthday Giveaway)
Well, here we go. I choose the third give and I am going to start all her questions. First, she asked why do I follow her blog? Simply, because her blog is inspirational and awesome! I am not lying, her blog is so pretty. I love the layout design, I love the pictures she posts, and above it all I love her blog's content. She shares a lot about beauty and make up, DIY craft, tips, and some of her personal life. Truth is, she is inspirational. I personally a big fan of craft and she gorgeously can creates a lot of craft works and kindly share it to us. I love her tips and tutorial and I love her creativity. I definitely agree about her words that creativity is no limit. She is totally right and true! :D

Talking about her blog and the reason why do I follow her blog also lead us to the next question, why do I choose this gift? Well, because I love crafting and her gift offer are soooo gorgeous! The pearls and roses are extremely tempting. I think if I get this gift and I have enough free time I could not stop crafting! :p I am a big fan of her craft works. I admire and respect her works when she makes something simple transform to be a really pretty works. You can see it directly on her works when she turns the simple box to be a gorgeous multi function storage, from newspaper to be a car accessories, ribbons to be a pretty door accessories, paper to be a pretty cosmetic storage, and so on! Seriously, you wouldn't be able to stop. :p

Well, talking about her craft equipment, when I was winning her first giveaway, she sent me a box covered with pretty golden ribbon. When I touch the ribbon, the material is a really fine one. It is smooth and unlike other ribbon that is having different textures in its two sides, Lulu's ribbon is having a really good quality and smooth textures on both sides. I was so curious where to get the same ribbon as hers. I went to some gift shops and found out only one ribbon available. The shopkeeper told me that the ribbon isn't sold in Jogja and she has to import it from Surabaya. I don't have to think further to buy some and I love the ribbon so much! Thank you, Lulu for introducing me to this pretty ribbon! :)

As I said previously, Lulu is challenging us to share/post some of our DIY craft creations. Too bad I did not share any new works but here I still share some of my paper quilling cards and flower wreath to be the entry of this giveaway. :D

I don't know whether I will have the opportunity of winning again or not but I love to try. Wish me luck, dolls! :D

Last but surely not least, I am going to say Happy Birthday, Lulu. You are a really inspirational&nice person, thank you for sharing all the goodness and wish you all the healthy pregnancy&easy deliver. And also, I wish you all the goodness and happiness. :)
