Make it a Handmade Holiday

Are you handy with a needle? Not a stranger to a hot glue gun? Do you know your way around a sewing pattern? Maybe you should consider putting those talents and skills to work and create handmade gifts to give for the holidays this year. There is a resurgence of demand for handcrafted items and people will appreciate your thoughtfulness and effort. Here are a few ideas that you might want to consider.

Just for Baby

A small floor quilt for a baby to play on when visiting friends is a handy item to keep in a diaper bag. With the huge variety of novelty flannels available, you could find just about any theme you want from licensed characters to polka dots and stripes to woodland creatures. Combine a couple of prints by putting them on opposite sides.

For Children

Make the little ones some little plush animals. You can easily find patterns at the craft store Long Beach CA crafters swear by. The fun of making them yourself is that you can customize the colors and prints as you wish and create a special little friend for your favorite or youngster to love.

For Teens

Even the teenagers in your life will appreciate handcrafted gifts when you stitch up a little backpack-style bag. Add a few pockets for cell phones and electronics. Add a drawstring closure for easy entry. You can get some fun results when you sew them out of an old pair of jeans or a denim jacket.

For Adults

Why not try some fun aprons on for size? Make a stylish barbecue-style apron for him and a cute vintage style with a ruffled hem for her. Add contrasting fabric pockets and grosgrain ties and you are all set. For added fun, make matching hot pads.
Whatever you choose to add your special touch to, your recipients will be flattered you thought enough of them to make it yourself. And you will have the satisfaction of sharing a part of yourself with your loved ones.

Sunway Property unveils its campaign for year, "Yours,2020"

Yesterday, Sunway Property unveiled its campaign for the year, “Yours, 2020”, putting its purchasers at the front and centre of its operations. Everyone has got busy lifestyle I am glad I took time off to attend and visited their show units of Sunway GEOLake Townhouse and Condomium.

Sunway Berhad Property Division Managing Director Sarena Cheah said that purchasers can look forward to getting their dream home, at the right price, at strategic locations, coupled with the right financing support from the property developer this year.

Last year, Sunway Property surpassed its sales targets of RM 1.3 billion to reach RM 1.55 billion in sales.
Of the close to RM 3.5 billion worth of properties in gross development value (GDV) to be launched, RM 1.0 billion of the properties will be in Malaysia and RM 2.4 billion (70%) of the properties will be in Singapore. This is in line with its plans for geographical diversification.

“This year will be all about making it easy for those who are looking to purchase a home to start a new decade with their very own Sunway homes and be part of our growing communities,” she added.

Besides enhanced customer engagement and experience, improved service and an even more dynamic customer service portal, purchasers this year can look forward to fully-customised home packages that centres on well-being with personalised financing options.

“Sunway’s recurring income from our portfolio of invested properties currently strengthens our financial sustainability. Geographical diversification will further deepen sustainability for us,” Cheah said.

She added, “In line with our Master Community Developer brand promise, powered by our build-own-operate model, we will continue to invest in our integrated townships and developments to ensure growth for our communities with about RM 1.1 billion of investment properties currently being built”.

As of December 2019, Sunway Property has 3,362 acres in landbank with the gross development value of RM59 billion and a total development period of up to 15 years. Currently, strong unbilled sales stands at RM2.8 billion which provides for earnings visibility.

Cheah said that delivering lifelong value for purchasers continue to be Sunway Property’s key focus for the Malaysian market.

“100% of our launches this year will be within integrated developments or are transit-linked, in-line with the continued resilient demand that we are seeing from purchasers for properties which are connected and offers great convenience. Our new landbanking efforts will also be in tandem,” she said.

“We will continue to deliver lifelong value to homebuyers by developing quality liveable urban homes which are connected, and strategically-located, and price the homes within the range of RM 600,000 - RM 800,000. Our commercial launches which constitute 30% of our total launches this year will be within integrated developments with immediate catchment in populous areas to ensure the success of our business community,” she added.

“With this, homebuyers can be assured of lifelong value, and attain ideal urban lifestyles where they can live, learn, work, stay and play in safe and secure havens while be future-proofed with the inherent potential capital appreciation of the properties,” said Cheah.

Last year, purchasers had snapped up 80% of Sunway Property’s launches which were transit-linked or integrated, constituting 90% of its launches.

cheer to the unfortunate during this year-end festive season.

Jennifer Wong, Senior Manager, Corporate Affairs and Event, Guardian Health And
Beauty Sdn Bhd said:

“At Guardian, we always strive to give something back to the society we operate in.
At the end of the year, during the festive and holiday season, when most people are
with their families, some are not so fortunate not to do so. Hence we feel that it is a
very appropriate time to do it.”

Recently Guardian Malaysia treated 55 children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak
Yatim Mary KL, a registered Home with the Welfare Department run with donations
from the public. It is a foster Home for children from poor families, dysfunctional
families, single parents and orphans

recently remodeled Guardian store at Berjaya Times Square and each received
presents including tokidoki cuddly toys.

Karyll Chee, a Guardian’s Face of Healthy Beauty winner was present to spend time
with the children at the Guardian store.

She said she was so happy that Guardian, in this season of giving, had given the
children the opportunity to shop for what they wanted and to experience the
pleasure of shopping.

“Seeing their happy faces really makes me feeling so grateful and blessed with what
I have,” she added.

In Kuching, Sarawak, Guardian had also worked with The Spring shopping mall
Kuching and Bintulu to deliver more than RM9000 worth of daily necessities for
Sarawak’s Children Cancer Society and Extrameal Bintulu. Guardian also visited
some children from Sarawak’s Children Cancer Society who are being treated at
Kuching’s General Hospital where they were given tokidoki plush toys to bring cheer
to them.

Additionally, Guardian customers also personally contributed their own cheer to the
needy by buying products at the Guardian store at The Spring Shopping Mall in

Travel from LRT Hang Tuah back to LRT Subang Jaya

Its been a while since I last took long hour journey from one place to another. It may not be a long journey for others. My first time taking LRT from Hang Tuah and I asked the counter staff how to get back to Subang Jaya. The staff is helpful telling me to go LRT  Masjid Jamek to change. Indeed I just followed the signed board and I always check if I am going the correct way.

When you are familiar with the public transport it is good for you as you really saving lot for travel. I went to Kohi Yatta for an event and its cafe is just located next to Mazda. Coming back I asked my friend for a ride so that I can go back home by LRT.

Once get in the LRT Hang Tuah, the next stop is Pasar Seni. I checked again for the stops that I am going through as I want to make sure that I am on the right track. I am glad we car pool to the event as there is limited parking spots at the venue. I told my friend that there's a parking at the closed door area. Just nice as to park a car. As most car inside venue had double parking and limited movement, there's another car toward my friend's car which wanting to get out. I asked my friend to park at the closed door area, just nice as parked then the other car can just move its way out to the exit.

I was warned by my friend that beware at LRT Hang Tuah where I be heading as I need to walk up to there. Crimes happening there quite often, I quickly hurry to go LRT station didn't want to walk slowly.  The time was in the afternoon about 4.40pm.I reached home 5.30pm. The LRT trip for me coming back cost only RM3.80, if not mistake.
