Tiger for a good friend farewell

Martin Farfan (an Argentina guy, beside him is my colleague- Uma) was my mentor, my trusted friend, my counselor when I first joined Shell. We were working closely together in the Software Management / Compliance areas.

For me, I find him simple; a guy that willing to share anything about his personal life, his work principles, and even his lunch. I’ve learned a lot from him especially the way he valued friendship.

Sadly, after a year later, his contract has come to end. He decided to move on his career to Oman.

I remember he told me once during our interview session, that he is passionate about Tiger.

Before he left Malaysia, we had a farewell party. I stitched him a Tiger chart and framed with the Royal Selangor pewter photo frame.

Later I received his call, he told me that he is very grateful, and couldn’t believed that I still remember about the Tiger he told me .... Hah…

Lovely pink dress stitched with an excavator, a cement truck, and a bull dozer

When I knew my niece loves heavy machinery, without hesitation, I stitch an excavator, a cement truck, a bull dozer and embedded on a lovely pink dress. I gave it to her as the Chinese New Year gift.

Later, I found out from my Bro, that she loves the dress so much so that she refuse to take it off. And, she goes to bed with the dress.

Unfortunately, I didn’t managed to take a picture of her with the dress… maybe I will ask my Bro. I will definitely share with you all if there is any.

I am going to stitch this lovely chart - "We became as one" and make it a pouch or a small hand beg.

Will share with you the progress... hopefully I can finish it by June.
