Ok- enough about the movie.. Candy Shoppe Design has a Twilight theme contest that I couldn't resist, Team Edward vs Team Jacob challenge, to be exact. I am an all out Team Edward fan, of course! To be on Team Edward, you have to use a little bit of black and red and some bling2 (vampires shine like diamond in the sun, right?). I only have to use a bit of the colors, but I decided to make them the dominant colors. This is my first time using black as the background, but I like how it turned out. It is a picture of me with my version of Edward Cullen.. hehehe
This layout is also inspired by Happy Scraps November poster challenge. Love how the black color also matches my Team Edward theme too.. My background paper mimic the bird feather and the dangling gems matched the sparkling black brads in my layout. For this layout, I used Ed's Sketch November challenge. We have to use background stamps, which I stamped on the kraft paper and added it to the layout.

Then on Wednesday we flew to Miri, and took a 4 hours bus ride to Bintulu (supposed to be only 2 hours but the bus is sooo slowww). In Bintulu, the outcrops are along roadside, so no more sea breeze to cool us down. But the weather is on our side. All 5 days, it did not rained when we were out in the field, and at the most exposed stops, we had clouds protection. In Bintulu, we had to wear a very glaring safety vest, so that every time locals passed by, they looked and stared at us like we are some kinda crazy people. "Jakunnya, apa best sangat batu buruk tu".. hehe..
As predicted, I got sunburn even when I was covered all over, even my face! I looked like a "penyangak" (bad guys) or an Arab nomad, wearing handkerchief over my face. That's the price of having this very sensitive skin. But it's OK, it was worth it. Food was great, we had lots of cheap seafood every night, especially when the company is paying.. hehe. Overall, it was a good trip. The hiking is minimal (nothing compared to US field trip), and the outcrops are amazing. It's great to mingle with my office colleagues outside the office (lots of yummy gossiping) and it's always good to get away from office once in a while.. :)
p/s: I am too lazy and too tired to scrap this weekend. Also need to spend time with my family.. hopefully got the chance to scrap next week! Plus, now I have lots of awesome pictures to scrap :)

I am happily (hopefully) now in Borneo studying real rocks... This scheduled publishing is great!
Friday, November 6, 2009
In the mean time, I am off for a field trip at Borneo (Labuan & Bintulu) this Sunday! It's time for me to look at hard rocks again, not just scrapperocks, but hardcore rocks! It's been a while since my last field trip, which was way before I had Zareef. This will be a great refresher, especially after years and years working in front of the computer, you tend to forget how it is like being a REAL geologist.
So, while I'm off having fun (hopefully am still fit for the long hikings), this blog will be idle for a while (only a week lah).

Zareef is really really into Transformers now. He has 2 of them, one is Long-Haul, courtesy of 'nenek' during his last birthday, and other one, Bumblebee, courtesy of 'ayah'. He watched both movies countless of times, even memorizing some lines from the movies. He also named his shirt Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Iron Hide, Megatron, SideSwipe, etc etc.. according to the color of the shirt. See, even I come to know the names of the robots!! Every Sunday, before his Gymboree class, he has a date with Transformers robots @ Toys'r us. And he will make up stories about the robots. Yeah, I told you he's really into it!
Oh, if you're a fan of Transformers, you can guess that MTMTE means 'More than meets the eyes', a famous Transformers quote.
p/s: sorry for poor quality of the picture as I took the pictures during evening time, after work.
