Colourful crochet coasters

I love handmade stuff, and I wish I could crochet, but I'm yet to learn how. My colleague Hani, however, is an ace at it, so I asked her to make me coasters to match my dining table's colourful place mats. Check them out! I loooveeeee them!

Thanks Hani!

Check out "Goodnight iPad" by Ann Droyd (David Milgrim)

I admit it, whenever I hear a public service announcement about "how we're all losing touch with each other  because we're all addicted to gadgets," I get really annoyed. I didn't use to be into gadgets and on-the-go Internet... but then I went and got myself a tablet. Now I'm hooked. I think my son is getting hooked too. Monkey see, monkey do. What have I done!!?? Still, those announcements irk me. I'm probably in denial.

When I saw this video about a children's book called Goodnight iPad though, I wasn't annoyed at all. I was deeply amused! Cleverly written by Ann Droyd (Android LOLs), a.k.a. David Milgrim, it's a parody picture book for the gadget freak in us all. I'm going to keep an eye out for it in bookstores, but wouldn't it be ironic if they turned it into an interactive story book that sold on iTunes or Android? I hope they will! It's already available as an ebook!

Latest articles in I.M. magazine :)

The best way to start anything, is with a positive attitude and a sense of humour, right? Aptly, I.M. magazine kicks off 2012 with a feature on up-and-coming Malaysian stand-up comedians. I adore the likes of Russel Peters, Dave Chapelle and Gabriel Iglesias, so I can understand why these guys (and girls) would want to do this. I haven't seen Malaysian stand up though, but I've got my fingers crossed for them.

Anyway, this month's I.M. contains not one, but two write ups by yours truly :) The first is a blogger's piece on "The funniest thing that ever happened to me," and the second is a review of Touchybooks' interactive story books for kids, which has a picture of my son :) He was thrilled to see himself in print!
