Emila's Illustrated Calendar 2010

When I first started blogging in April of last year, among the earliest blogs that I linked to was Emila's Illustrated Blog which I came across in the Blog Malaysia directory. Apart from being a talented artist/illustrator, Emila is also a very good photographer.

Last month, Emila invited her readers to suggest suitable quotes that could be inserted in her upcoming calendar for 2010. She was looking for 12 quotations that would accompany her drawings for each month of the year and the selected entry would win a copy of the calendar itself. I suggested a quote from Khalil Gibran for the month of July (my birthday month) and as luck would have it, my entry was chosen.

Last week, Emila delivered the cute calendar to me, complete with a special indicator for the 6th of July. Thanks Emila, for this unique present.

The calendar is available to the general public at only RM12.90 from her online shop at this link -> Emila's Littleshop. While at her shop, you may also wish to browse other unique items on offer.

Ahh.. now we know your birthdate. Happy Belated Birthday :)

Emila is so creative & talented. Thanks to you I've linked to her, & lucky to have met her. This friendly down-to-earth person has won October's handsome prizes for Blog4FT. I think she'll do well in the final too.

p.s
At first I thought she's your relative hehehe.

I think I must have this cute calendar too... hehehe!

Kahlil Gibran

If your heart is a volcano, how shall you expect flowers to bloom?

OR

Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.

Thanks for reminding, lama dah lupa kat dia ni...

Lili,

Wow! A blogger friend with the same birthday... now what's the probability of that? Something for us to celebrate together for the rest of our lives, yeay!

I noticed that Anne is also a cancerian when I first checked her profile after the first time she dropped a comment.

Chahya,

I've not had the opportunity to meet Emila in person yet, but I think it won't be too far off.

Oldstock said...

Emila,

It's the least that I can do. I love the calendar and would be placing an order for some more soon :-)

Oldstock said...

Salam Pakmat and Anneaziz,

The Khalil Gibran quote that I submitted was : Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.

Oldstock said...

Hliza,

The calendar is really cute and I think you should buy it. You can also try ask Emila to mark out your birthday like what I did. I'm sure she'll oblige.

I've never been one to be secretive of my birthday, hehehe... lagipun you dah tahu kan since it's in my FB profile.

Come to think of it, why don't you also be friends with Emila on FB? I'll send you the suggestion.

Salam Oldstock,

Yup, Power to the crab! I muda (?) sikit dari you and Lili , mine is 19th July. (tahun tak yah cakap lah! anything over 35 is not worth a mention)

Hats off to you for the quote you submutted. Deep one!
