Hyundai i45

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hyundai. All opinions are 100% mine.

Most of the time, I don’t drive. My hubby is the one who does all the driving. So, I am free to knit if I want to. However, I am still not able to knit without looking at my knitting like some other knitters do. I have to look at my knitting, and when I do, I will have a motion sickness.

Although I don’t knit in the car, I do a great deal of my thinking while in the car, especially about my knitting and crocheting. About what to knit or crochet next, about my new design, about what to do with my current project, what button looks nice, etc. These thoughts make me happy.

Talking about car, do you know that Hyundai launched their i45? Their ad is very cool. You can see it here: Hyundai i45 on YouTube.

For your information, Hyunday has carved out market share everywhere. It’s now number five in the world and number four in Australia. So, it’s no wonder if people curious on how the new addition, Hyundai i45 looks like.

From the look of this car, I can say that this car is going to send more than a few ripples through the local mid-size segment. Starting at $29,490 for the manual Active and rising to $34,490 and $37,990 for the six-speed paddle-shift Elite and Premium models respectively, this car promising a good value and will force a good response. If you want to test drive this baby, you can do it online.

Crocheted Flower Pot Case

You can almost crochet anything. From soft toys, garment, accessories, to home décor. Most of the time, I only crochet garment for me and my daughter to wear and recently I like to crochet shawl. From time to time, I also like to crochet blanket or afgan. I love the look of crocheted blanket or afgan. It makes the room looks cosy. However, make a blanket or afgan takes quite a long time and yarn, and sometimes I got bored in the middle and never finished it.

If you are looking something small, simple, and fast to make and still can make your home looks cosy, how about crocheted flower pot? Yup, you heard me right! It’s fast to make and you can get an instant gratification. Here is the the link for the free pattern.

Triangle Crocheted Shawl

Still about crocheted shawl. What I found today? Very gorgeous pattern. If you want to make it, the link is here.

Although I like the look of this shawl, but I don't think I want to make it. I don't like pattern that have to join together. I don't like the idea that I have to chop my yarn into so many pieces. I just afraid that if I don't like the result, I can't use the yarn to make other projects.

However, I really like the motifs, so probably I will make this as a blanket. Using cheap yarns, with DK weight. I will use light pink and darker pink for my girls. I bet it will look sweet.

Knit and Crochet Shawls

I am so lazy to blog nowadays. I spent most of my time in Ravelry browsing around to get inspiration. Lately, I am into making shawl, both knit and crochet. I realized that so many knit patterns available and most of them is gorgeous. Even the free pattern is super beautiful. My favorite is Haruni Shawl (Ravelry link). Isn't this gorgeous?

Crochet shawls are more limited and I am having difficulty to find something that I like. Even the pay patterns are not up to my liking. I even find some easy and basic pattern crochet shawl that is not free. Like this Milk and Cookies shawl for example, the stitch pattern is simple and the color combination is not my favorite and yet we have to pay $5 for the pattern. Well, of course this is only my opinion, other people probably thinking different than mine.

If you are into fillet crochet, here is a link to free pattern to make this pretty Diamond Shawl. Enjoy!

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel in DVD

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to knit while I am watching TV, especially when I reach the boring part of the project, like making the other part of sleeves. If you have the same hobby as mine, you probably know what I meant.

Anyway, normally on weekends my family which consists of my husband and 2 daughters have a family “movie time”. We select a movie that is suitable for my 2 daughters to watch. I will make popcorn and make fresh orange juice to enjoy while we are watching the movie.

This weekend, I think I will watch Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, which is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download. The Double DVD Pack includes "The Squeak Along" Bonus Disc, with more music, mayhem and all-new singalongs. If you want to buy one you can buy it now here. While waiting for your DVD to arrived, you can get yourself and your kids More Munk Mayhem.

Do you know that Alvin and the Chipmunks is created in 1958. No wonder I remembered watching Alvin and the Chipmunks when I was a little girl. At that time the name is The Alvin Show. So, I am really looking forward to watch these cute chipmunks again.

Table Runner

I love yellow. Yellow color always brighten up any room. This time I show you a yellow table runner called "Sunshine Delight". It's crocheted table runner with delightful patterns and textures. I am sure this will brighten your dining table or any table.

I don't know about you, but somehow my dining table is always full of clutters. So I am thinking to make this to put it on top of my living room table, which is not as clutter as my dining table.

For the pattern, you can click here.

Opportunity For Australian Out There

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Panasonic Australia. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ever since my first child was born, I took up the hobby of photography where my main concentration was taking photos of my children. The beauty of taking digital photos is that you can take as many photos as you want without having to spend a single cent to process them.

I certainly don't consider myself a photographer and am not particularly skilled or technical. I definitely belong to the point-and-shoot school of thought. But through Flickrville and Blogland I have learnt how wonderful photos can be, how the every day stuff of life can be elevated somewhat by a decent photo.

Anyway, if you like to take pictures like me, Australians, and you use Panasonic Lumix camera, you can get this once in a lifetime opportunity to have your photographs seen alongside some of Australia’s well known and celebrated photographers like Ken Duncan, Peter Eastway and Bill Bachman.

Grab your LUMIX, capture what you think is the heart and soul of Australia and be part of LUMIX Life Focus on Australia.

Your entry can be anything you choose, from a dramatic landscape, or magical wildlife image to a quirky snapshot of Aussie life – all you need to do is shoot it on a LUMIX and enter it!

To get more information regarding this promotion, you can follow them through Panasonic Australia on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and check out LUMIX Life Focus On Australia starts April 1st 2010 - The Video.

Purple Crocheted Cardigan

What do you think of this cardigan? If you think this is lovely, then I agree with you. Although if I am going to make this, probably I will using different color as purple doesn't suit me that well.

Actually I love the whole outfit, it looks trendy yet romantic at the same time, and I sucker at romantic or feminine look.

One thing I worried is that I will look fat wearing this.

Going Green

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hyundai. All opinions are 100% mine.

While knitting and watching a marathon of movies and television shows this weekend I came to a sudden realization: going green has become the latest fad.

It's so easy to scoff and say that changing your lifestyle won't fix anything, but it's this kind of thinking that will ensure these problems persist and grow worse rather than get better. Changing your entire way of life overnight is nearly impossible, so maybe instead try to focus on one thing at a time. Starting with buying Hyundai Santa Fe R.

The Hyundai Santa Fe R is not just good to look at, but it was also designed and geared to help minimize the effects of global warming with its green capabilities and features. The Santa Fe model runs on diesel powered fuel with 27% more power and 7% less carbon dioxide emissions. You can even save costs on fuels because it consumes 10% less than other automobile models.

Check out the video, and see the new Hyundai Santa Fe R Diesel winning the Australian Darwin to Adelaide SUV class of the transcontinental Global Green Challenge.

This was a real contest and it pitted different vehicles against each other in Australia, travelling the tough Darwin to Adelaide route. The Hyundai Sante Fe won under the SUV class for fuel efficiency easily.
