The story of my pencil...

A grandmother once told a little boy the story of a pencil while he is doing his homework. She said: There are five qualities you've to learn from a pencil.

First: You write your own story in life. You're capable in great things and is responsible for your own actions. For every good and bad deed, it's all written by your own hand. You've a choice in every choice you made. There is no such thing as no choice. Everyone has a choice. Nobody can write your story except for yourself thus use the pencil and write it well.

Second: Every once in a while, you've to stop writing and use a sharpener. Sometimes, life is a little harder to go by but you've to keep on writing. The sharper you are, the wiser you'll be.

Third: When you make an error in your writing, the pencil allows you to rub it off with an eraser. It's not a terrible thing so don't keep reprimanding yourself once you make a mistake. Correcting something that you've done and learn from it, rub out your mistakes and move on.

Fourth: What really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior; it's the graphite inside that is more important. Don't ignore the childhood dreams that your heart once have. Don't forget to cultivate yourself and reflect what your purpose in life is.

Fifth: The pencil always leaves a mark, not just in the paper but for anyone who read your story. Be mindful and try to be conscious in everything you say or do.

Graphic Cushion Cover

You might be surprised! My indulgence since 1998 sometimes is not shopping for clothes or shoes but cushion cover and bed sheet cover.

The thing about a well-designed print on a cover is that it brings life into your room and personal style. Thus, don underestimate the covers as there are equally important as in your inner beauty, undergarment!!

Think out of the box?

This is the classic example of unintended corporate irony: invoking a wretched cliché in a vain attempt to inspire creativity. The guy who utters this crap has never actually set foot outside the box. He would not in fact know a triangle if it stabbed him behind his back. As a highly respected corporate "square", he is skilled in the art of squeezing a few more pounds of shit into a box rather than declaring thinking out of it. If not, he is trying to experiment with designer’s effort to boast his ego thus he can tell people that the design is done by him.

Also, you don't get a box out from the square!
