We’ve commissioned our first letterpress set! =D  Moving announcements to be exact.  Searched extensively online – none to be found in Singapore, so naturally, I turned to Etsy.

Heh.  I seem to be saying this quite frequently.  Sorry to be away from the blog for so long, but yes, I’m back again. =)

So what was I busy with?  First, I went back to work.  Then I fell pretty sick.  And amidst that, Mr C and I had to settle our new home.

We’ve collected our keys to our new home (henceforth known as The Pad), and look forward to the renovations starting soon.  So, YAY! =D

Mr C and I have also decided that we shall go to Vietnam (Hanoi, Sapa, Halong & Hoi An) for our much postponed honeymoon next April, so another YAY!!
