My friend has just alerted me about this movie which will be shown at GV, VivoCity. Unfortunately, I can't make it at the times it's shown.
25 - 26 Aug at 7:00pm & 7:15pm respectively.
"Japan's secret mass slaughtering of at least 23,000 dolphins...in a year just to pass off the meat as a whale meat. The poachers have tried to hide and barricade that cove in Osaka from public view, but a covert mission managed to infiltrate the area."
It looks really good! Go see it if you don't have any plans for this Tues and Wed!

However, the majority viewpoint is that the demand for sharks' fin is the key factor driving sharks towards extinction. Hear both sides of the story and watch the exciting debate between proponents of the two camps.
The debaters include Dr Giam Choo Hoo, Regional Representative for Asia (Alternate) for CITES Animals Committee, and Louis Ng, Executive Director of ACRES. This debate and public forum will be chaired by Dr Shawn Lum, President of Nature Society (Singapore), and is open to the public and media.

There's a tutorial for the flowers. The blogger sewed them onto her curtains! I think they'd add a nice touch to a hairband made from scrap fabric :-)

I think the one with baking soda might be worth trying. I'm using it on my hair once a week with apple cider vinegar rinse. I also heard that you can dip cotton pads into baking soda solution and apply it to your face as a mask for about 10 minutes. It's supposed to dissolve the blackheads. You can only use it once a week though.

The mess in bedroom when I was doing the sock!
I'll be doing the left side next weekend and hopefully I'll have some pics of the recon in action!
Update - I've decided to remove the bow at the back as I'm having problems keeping it out of the shoe! I will sew it on as an elasticated strap instead like a ballet slipper.
