Unbelieveable pastimes!

500pcs only... 3hrs crouching over it.. on the floor

I am still packing my place.. an hour or two every day.. slowly but surely, there are signs of progress. I notice my neighbours waits eagerly as I bring my junk to the dump corner (not the designated dumping ground.. but the usual one for people to look for salvageable items). I just barely turn my back and they are at it already. .. hmm… didnt think my junk were so precious.

Laminated jigsaw - done with clear vinyl

As more things are discarded, some things that were buried before, surfaces. .. and so a pile of un-opened jig saw puzzle boxes were uncovered… now what do I do with these.. I dun wanna throw them away.. .. but I wonder if I still have it to fix them up..

King of all jig saw puzzles!

I mean, 500 pieces is so easy… right? So I started.. on the floor.. and when its done, how do u pick it up? Well, so I laminate it and there it is, done forever! Now that box can go, and the puzzle can stay. I mean, its flat and easy to keep right?

This 500pcs took me, myself 3 hrs! … 3 good hours of my life gone! Jig saw is like the biggest con job on earth. Who wanna do jig saw!? Its a crazy concept that people like perfectly good pictures to be cut up into pieces, only to piece them up again! … and I am one of them suckers! Maybe the biggest one of them all!  BTW, the 12000 pieces is actually 3/4 completed and taken apart and put back into the box. I dunno why I did that.. but its part of my memories that I did spend years of few hours here and there doing it. I think its gonna stay unfinished, but I dun wanna throw it away either… sigh…
