FROM TAKAPAN TO AYER BALOI

My destiny has brought me to the Peninsular Land (Semenanjung). I am married to my husband since November 1979, in Kota Kinabalu. In April 1987, after retiring from the army my DH choose to returned back to his home place, Ayer Baloi Pontian. I resigned as a civil servant in 1990 because of the obstacle in transfered process in those time from Sabah to Semenanjung. Being aways from my homeland and my siblings alway makes me feel lonely. My DH and children gives me courage and happiness. To really overcome my loneliness, I plants flowers and do some patchwork sewing. I love scented flower and lets them grows wild to attracts the butterflies and birds. Patchwork, I made mostly for my family own use as KUMBANG. Anyhow, living in Ayer Baloi is calmed and peaceful because I am surrounded by mostly my loveable family, husband relatives and friends.

    Dear Aunty (can I just call you Aunty?)
    My name is Hayati.
    I came across your blog as I was googling about quilting supplies in Malaysia. I have always wanted to learn how to quilt but never got around to doing it I guess I really have to wait until uni is over. I'm inspired by your blog and all your sewing are just so beautiful. Sewing being largely seen as a feminine craft, you really are an inspiration for young woman out there to keep learning this valuable skill. Keep posting Aunty, I enjoy reading your blog :)
    Anyway I'm from Lahad Datu, Sabah. Go Sabah women! Hehe.
