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!
xoxo Miss Deb

Wrap up of the week..
A thousand apologies for the lack of post this week! Here's why:
Monday was a public holiday but I started working on my article about green living that suits the Malaysian lifestyle.
Tuesday I put the finishing touches on that article and got to have dinner with our lovely friend Michelle.
Wednesday I emailed 2 magazines regarding freelance writing work - Expat Lifestyle and Blu Inc (the people who do Marie Claire, Shape and a bunch of other magazines here). I also started working on an article about me and my sock monkeys for a Malaysian indie magazine called I.M.
Thursday I got in touch with the editor of Cleo to see what's the latest with that prospective job and she'll be deciding by the end of the month. Keep them fingers cross for me, won't you?! I also sent through the sock monkey article to I.M. and I think they're going to publish it! I also started working on an article about my experience of growing up, leaving then returning to Malaysia for MANZA magazine. Quite a few people have expressed an interest in that story.
Today, I'm sleepy, at about 3 am last night, the fire alarm in our condo building went off! So I hope to have a relaxed one and keep working on that last article and think up a few more topics I'd like to write about in the coming week. All suggestions are welcome! There's also some thought of re-branding for my blog.
I managed to hit the pool every day this week too.
Will keep you posted, lovelies! Hope you had a good week. Miss Deb

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!
