One of Mama's enduring hobbies is beading embroidery. She painstakingly transforms a plain baju kurung into something vogue with her deft hands. She can only do this when I'm sleeping, or else she cannot concentrate as I'm curious to lick the colourful beads to find out whether they taste like smarties. She is now finishing a dress for Auntie W, an up and coming 30-something, for her to wear to an exclusive Raya do tonight. Unfortunately my brother is away on a school trip to Genting Highlands. Otherwise I can ask him to show the work in progress here. Papa is just hopeless.
UPDATE: 25 October 2008
My brother just called from GH and described to Papa how to import the memory card from Lumix to the Toshiba Satellite. Quite elementary, although Papa was at his wits end on how to make the photo enlargeable. After numerous attempts, he managed to post the desired pix as shown in the next post "Not the Mak Datin Dress" which depicts Mama's kraftangan when it was half completed.
