My name's Deb, how lovely to meet you! I'm so glad you stopped by...
In November 2008 I made my first sock monkey (yep, that's him alright)....and as they say...the rest is history...
In February 2009, Sock It To Me! was born and my life used to consist of Teza by day (Good afternoon, you're speaking to Chaos Control & Crayon Girl, how may i help?) and monkey business by night.
It was very exciting but I left my home and reality for a crazy journey of enlightenment around Asia. So, here I am soaking up the sights and sounds of sunny Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and working for CLEO, the coolest mag ever. Thanks again for stopping by, sit back, relax and Happy Reading!
Yes our little Roboski Hamsters, Chuck and Morgan live here...so technically eventhough we're not allowed pets in the apartment, I don't consider them living IN the apartment since they have their own home right?!
Am stuck at home sick today...and I'm so bored...too tired to do anything but frustrated 'cos I feel like I'm wasting a sick day. Gah. Going to go eat my feelings now hahahahah...
This is a green tea latte. Yes, it looks foul but no, on the contrary, it does not taste that way. This was my new discovery of the week. Having seen so many Facebook updates of people addicted to the stuff I finally decided to try it. And, yes...if you're a green tea fan...and a warm milky non-coffee drink sorta person, this ones for you. Funnily enough I liked it best because I could taste the green-ness floating along with the frothy goodness but caffeinated colleagues said it was way to milky for their liking.
Ah Starbucks, you've done it again. :)
P.s Photo was taken on my new cell! Will tell you more about my Sony C510 next time.
Have a fabulous weekend 'cos you know you deserve it!
Yeah, that might just be an understatement. I can't believe it's been that long since I last updated!
But what counts is that I'm here now right, clicking away rapidly...
I'm pretty sure I'm getting better at my job but it's hard to tell sometimes when I feel I'm continuously being challenged. The long hours are still a massive pain in the behind but I've more or less come to terms with it now. The boychum's been fabulous, making or buying back dinner most nights since I only get home after 7pm.
It's crazy that we've been in Malaysia for almost 3 months now. On Halloween we celebrated our 1 year anniversary...is time just passing me by helplessly or what. I can't imagine doing any of this with anyone else though...(blush)
So, some of you might know that I went to a runway show that was part of the Malaysian International Fashion Week. Photos have turned out a bit crummy as I only had my phone on me and I was too busy drooling over the male models...Yes, I too was pleasantly surprised that work gave me tickets to the men's world section.
Anyhoo, I was trying to post up some photos so you don't forget what I look like but the internet's being a bit of a drag...it'll just have to wait til next time.
Hope all is well with you and only a week or so more to go before New Moon comes out!

Yes...the term is to be taken literally...take one funky pair of socks, add a dash of "Sock It To Me!" magic by Miss Deb and Voila! Sock monkey awesome-ness! Sock monkeys have been around for centuries...nanas use to make them out of old pairs of socks for their grandkids. Revival with a twist is here. Every single one of these bad boys is unique and one of a kind. Miss Deb's does custom orders too so if you had something specific in mind or stumbled upon some seriously cool socks that you think are worth 'monkey-fiying', you know where to go!
