Hi ya, dear.
I know I've been very bad for neglecting my blog nowadays but I couldn't help it. The first school semester is in its first week but I am still busy and couldn't find the time to relax. Anyway, since I have no time to play with wire for the time being, I am sharing some photographs that were taken today on my visit to the Kompleks Kraft Negeri Sembilan as well as to the Perbadanan Kraftangan Malaysia in Ampang Tinggi, Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan. The purpose of the visit was to bring my son and his two school mates to gather as much as possible information on Ratttan Weaving (anyaman rotan), interview with the proprietor, and to gather pictures for their history assignment for submission for their PMR examination.
There are many more photographs but shared here are some that are not in order, though.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed viewing these photographs. Hopefully, I have something to share again the next time I update my blog.
Now...back to 101 things that I have to do.
Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful week ahead!
