Since I got my new sewing machine. I have been trying to free my self from working too much but still I couldn’t get enough time for using my tempting machine. Thought of sewing something for myself. And then, Ria’s baby was delivered, it’s a rabbit year baby. Whooaahh… it’s time for me for trial and error.. hohoho…
Although, it is not so perfect but it is my 1st dress after so many years never touched mama’s sewing machine. I got the top’s measurement from the internet but tried to match roughly the bottom after that and it looks good. There are linings for the top and no lining for the bottom cos it will make the whole dress too thick to wear in Singapore weather. I was trying to look for the letter “E” and “M” with nice and bright color for about few weeks but couldn’t really find nice ones, so, I decided to use flower buttons to create them to become Valeri’s initial as per her daddy’s request. Anyway, The size is too small.. hohoho… I made another simpler one. ^.^ ohh.. where is the pic?? hmmmm .. *scratching head*…
I just bought 2 marimoes last sunday 19 June 2011. I was shown by Netty who has this plant pet just bought not long time ago. It’s so cuutte ~*~ … And I wanna have 1 since mom doesn’t allow me to have dog and parrot !!

It is also knows as Moss Ball. After I read some articles, It is actually an algae that grows to form a ball. It will be getting bigger and bigger from time to time but it could take hundreds years to become a soccer ball size or about 400 years to become a basket ball size. Mine is about smaller than m&m chocolate size.. hohoho..
Marimo can be found in Lake Akan, Japan. Japanese spent a lot of effort to conserve marimo from extinction and they even have a three day marimo festival. According to the natives, they believe that because of its legend, marimo became famous. There once was a daughter of a chief of an important tribe living on the banks of Lake Akan, who fell in love with a commoner. Their relationship was objected by her parents. In order to be together, they ran away, metamorphosed into Marimo and lived happily ever after. Because of this myth, the Marimo has been known as the “love plant” in Japan. It was believe that marimo will bring luck and love, that’s why some people will get this as a gift or Valentine’s gift.
In Order to keep them well. The water must be change about half every 2 weeks or if it is too hot, then the water need to be changed every 1week or few days more often. They can live without direct sun and below 28°C. If the weather is too hot, they can be put in the fridge for about 2-4hours but not the freezer as they can’t survive in a frozen environment because it will freeze them as well. When they grow bigger, the small aquarium must be changed to a bigger one, too, otherwise they will remain small and cute ~*~ …
