Love These Treasures! Andy Lau is Coming to Singapore!

If you have been following Dave's GMA blog, you might have noticed this custom-made order a little while ago. Dave sent my orders in 3 packages and I just received the last one. Here are what I got from him this time!

The scissors fob on the right is what I requested - a scissors fob with a small tatting shuttle hanging on it and it will work for a small quick project. Dave carved the shuttle from fossil mammoth ivory, 1 1/4" in length, and scrimshawed with my name. The shuttle hangs from a fob beaded with clear, green and purple Swarovski crystals. I will use the clasp on other end to attach a picot hook. Lovely, isn't it ?
The pendents on the top left and below are Celtic Ogham pendants - Dave made the mammoth ivory one on the top with symbols meaning protection, and Jo made the earthenware one below with symbols meaning joy. I like them long, and the earthly colours, and the most unique meaningful symbols.
Next are 2 hand-carved Yak bone - " Endless Knot" and "Precious Umbrella" -pendants made in Nepal. These 2 are part of the 8 auspicious symbols traditionally used to represent the qualities of the Buddha. The Umbrella symbolises protection against all evils, while the Endless Knot symbolises love and unity of all things.
Last but the least, I got another of Jo's solid moisturizing lotion bar. No, I have not finished the first bar I bought, but I love it so much, I just have to have one in my hangbag, and another one in my office! Lovely scent!
And before I end off, I'm too excited to hold back this news - I managed to get tickets for Andy Lau's Wonderful World Concert Tour 2008 and on the front 6th row! Ok, what's the big deal ? Well, Andy is the No. 1 idol in the Chinese entertainment scene, the tour kicked off in September last year and has successfully conquered 16 cities to-date, selling out every venue. Tickets are going so fast for the Singapore 12 Dec 2008 show, even the S$198 Category 1 tickets are left with back seats in the early afternoon of the 1st day of ticket sale! Due to the overwhelming response, a second show on 13 Dec 2008 has just been added today, and yes! we managed to get seats on the 6th row, thanks, to my colleague!

Thanks, TattingChic, Clyde! Yes, Dave of GMA certainly makes very neat stuff, and he is always making them differently, so each piece is unique. If only our pockets are deeper!
