The arrival of my long awaited gift!

It was supposed to be my Christmas gift from Lan last year, but somehow, it didn't make it in time... But I am glad that I finally got it NOW! What is it, anyway?

Well, it's the very FIRST photobook of my scrap-pages! I love how my pages turned out. Though, I did complain about it not being as sharp as it is on my screen or sometimes the photos came out darker than intended, I am so very happy to have it printed out! Totally loving it! Even Lan, who hesitated when he ordered the book for me, loves the book very much and encourages me to aim for another book for 2010. :)

This week, snow hit Liverpool BADLY! I mean, really, badly! I was so happy when it snowed so much. I went out by myself on a photo-hunting trip, because Lan just hated the cold! I have to say I had so much fun taking photos with my new 50mm lens, although when I got home, I was drenched with water! LOL!
Here is the bad part though... the snow stayed for DAYS and turned to ice! It is really tricky to walk outside without slipping. Some roads are blocked, schools are closed, train and bus services are messed up and, YES, I fell down once on the way to town yesterday. Ick! It takes twice as long to get to the office! And, tomorrow, we're not even sure we can go to church :(
Blah! It's the coldest winter of my history living in Liverpool! (That makes me think about how I am gonna survive in Beijing?!)

Well, there I share a few snowy photos with you all, except for the first photo, which is the photo of our Christmas roasted chicken cooked by ME! Hehehe...

That's it for now. For those experiencing winter craze, KEEP WARM! For those with summer, enjoy the sun! :D And I'll leave you with my two favorite LO that I've made this week: (Ps. I loveeeeee these so much!)

  8. @noni: shutterfly bagus... so far kita selalu puas ama hasil photobooknya. even nyetak foto nya pun kita selalu puas ama shutterfly.

    tapi keliatannya blurb lebih murah ya. ntar kudu dicoba nih. ntar gua bandingin deh shutterfly ama blurb mana yang lebih ok.. :)
