monday, 6th april

for the past few days I've been busy with so many things...i just do not know where to begin. last week in Apr 1st, i have to book two airfare tickets to Japan from a travel agent. i have to make sure i call in on the 1st because the promotional ticket start on 1st and end on 15th Apr. it was incredibly & unbelievable airfare price!! 2 return tickets from KL to JP is going for RM2,900 (USD765) i am so thrilled by just hearing the word JAPAN!! yes! i am going for my honeymoon trip in June. all this while, i have been dreaming and wishing to visit Japan another time. its has been 18 years ever since i visited Japan. this time round, i told dh that i must visit Hokkaido, Kyoto & Nagoya (where my gf stay). i just could not believe that i am actually going to Japan. so now we are all set going to Japan and next step we have to start planning on our route & start searching for budget accommodations.

last weekend i spent most of my time online and also self learning in Photoshop. i am an amateur in Photoshop because i only know how to use Illustrator. But lately i said to myself that i have to keep on learning and self improvement (is a must to everyone).
i have an interesting site that i would like to share with some of my blogger & friends who may or may not already know about it. i found 'etsy.com' a place to buy & sell all handmade stuffs which i find pretty interesting. if you have time, you can check it out and share with me what do you think? i will keep you informed if i have an etsy store ^.^

sharing with you are some tricks i have learned in lightroom & photoshop;

    I wish I have chance to travel to Japan. Such a cultural rich and beautiful country.
