a gift for my mum ....

2008 , Bahija didn't travel anywhere with mum .... 2009 - also quite hard to bring her for a long overseas trip, as my nature of job now requires me to be on-call and on-site support...not as flexible as the In-Kei time, aiiii :( 2008, my mum learned to travel by herself, she read the travel advertisements, and called the agents herself , settled everything and travel alone by herself, without her daughters. Last year, she joined the travel tours to Guilin and Hainan, China. She's a cool mum , at the age of 72 years old, she learns to use digital camera, roaming handphone :) I'm very proud of her. She even enjoyed her photography, her new friend taught her how to look at the focus square box , to capture the best shot .... I felt sorry that I couldn't bring her travel more often thesedays .. This year CNY day 10, she's goin to China Harbin alone , to see the ice scruptures ....it's COLD there. I just want to get something special for my lovely mum , thus ....I'm knitting a scarf for her , in time for her to wear during her icy cold Harbin trip :)

It's quite fun to do knitting ....again, put on some lovely songs, sit quietly and knit it , relaxing my mind too :)

Bahija - don't listen to that Anti-Ringgit. So teruk! I heard he's freezing his ass off in London, so probably he's jealous that your mom is getting a scarf.

I thought that you are so filial! I think your mother will be very happy to get this handmade, made-with-love scarf. I am sure it will keep her very, very warm indeed.

Very sweet of you knitting for your mum. I too salute to your mum, traveling overseas by herself at the age of 72. I want to visit her in CNY :-)
