When my bloggy friend from Oman, UAE’s neighbor country said she and her family are heading to Dubai, I was excited! Mayya and I first “met” through 5 Minutes for Mom’s Blog Party earlier this year. I was ecstatic to know that she’s just in Oman. It’s very near so we have better chances to see each other in real life!
Anyway, I finally met Mayya, the talented lady behind Sew Chic n Unique. Dubai is a four hour drive from Oman and they were in town for her husband’s work. The picture we took was right after Pristine and I arrived, with exhausted smiley and all. Mayya was however, so charming. And tall. I feel like a dwarf standing next to her. Our girls had identical yellow shirts. No wardrobe pre-arrangements were made.
Why was I exhausted?
I arrived late. I hate to be late and I’m not your usual late person (you can ask my school friends if you don’t believe me, heh). I got out of the house early but on the way, I saw my gasoline indicator blinking – had to go the gas station to fill up only to find out three cars ahead of me. Tick-tock, tick-tock. Time was running out and I had to park the car in the nearest entrance of the shopping mall when I arrived. I was running like mad inside the shopping mall since I parked the car in the opposite end of our meeting place! I should have checked the venue of our meeting place the day before! I seldom get late but wait – I see a pattern here. I also got late when I met Stacey this year because I have to drive back home since I forgot ID’s to use at the entrance gate in our meeting place. Ah, maybe bloggy meetups make me nervous, and late. But I hope not next time!!
Moving on, Pristine and Mayya’s eldest daughter instantly clicked, giggled and talked like there’s no end.
Mayya also brought with her the one thing I had been wanting for quite a while now: a purse organizer! This handmade organizer organized not only my things but my LIFE! No exagerration there.
Now I can switch bags and never have to worry again about forgetting my things. I only have a few I can’t go out of the house without but when I forget or leave out any one of my essentials, I’d be in chaos. Mayya saw my bag open and she said, “You really need an organizer!” LOL!
I have to say that her workmanship is impressive! The way she measured those compartments? They were perfect. Oh and my organizer is not only functional but also very durable. It also has a key strap for my set of keys. This is not a paid advert, I am just a very happy customer!
You can check out Mayya’s organizers and other lovely work at her new site, Sew Chic n Unique. I am sure you would be happy with a little organization in your life too.
