The Sunday Salon: Catch Up Cliff notes! {21/10/2012}

The_Sunday_Salon Hiya! It has been a while since I actually done a TSS post. I have been quite busy with work and the internet provider has been annoying. So, let me do a cliff note on what I have been doing on my life and blog front.



    Life & Career
  • Book Binding. (About 4-5 weeks or so ago.) Yup, I have finally attend, learnt and done a book binding exercise, with the courtesy of Dewan Bahasa & Pustaka Brunei (National Brunei Library Organization). That was fun. We get to bind our own set of Mekar magazines. Sewing, gluing and making our own covers.
    …..Now I know why library bound books are expensive. But yeah, that actually left me with an after taste where I just want to do more and more of it. Maybe I should. =3
  • GenNext 2012. Oh this left me squeeing like a little girl in a book-store. (What? I grew up having bookstores as my candy store.) This is a seminar in the regards of libraries upfront, schools, public and special libraries. We get to learn how we should integrate social medias,  new technologies, open access and then some into our libraries. Bring it out there. In fact, new tech doesn’t mean libraries are redundant, but in fact, making it more of a center of societies.  
    … Of course personally, it’s like “In your face, you social medias blockers in schools!” – since I have been using the social medias to attract patrons to the libraries in the first place. Tee hee…

  • Blog wise.  I have been doing some site cleaning. Gathering links here and there. It feels like a mess in here. Updating and creating few stuff like
    About the Reader,
    Benefits of Reading,
    Book Prizes & List Challenges,
    1001 Must Read Book Lists (Yes! I finally fix that list, it took me a while but it actually happened! *Geek dance*!!!)
    Book Reviews By Author Masterlist
    ► It’s not done yet, so bear with me.
    --- Forgive me again, for not actually getting around to do my supposed schedule October-fest. I have been busy with courses and seminars. I actually miss Dewey read-a-thon, and a few other read-a-thons as well – and I am never the one to throw away our beloved read-a-thons.
    --- I even missed doing Bloggiesta! Eeep! Of well.. Gonna just do “spring-cleaning” slowly.

It has been a while since I’ve join this meme, but heck yeah, I was busy with seminars and courses that has been filling up my time. Moreover, my IP is having one of their speed fits or PMS or whatever you call it.

I was attending a seminar this week, and there was another bookfair. There was a drop down sale and one store was having a buy one, free one offer. Yes, I went nuts *again*.
