There's No Rush. Hush Hush.

Photobucket
Photos from an outing with the sibs and cousins few days ago :)

Yesterday my baby sis and I attempted to fly a 15minute-homemade kite. It never made it to the sky :( But it was hilarious. I felt like a kid again. Lil' bro was there to support us with more laughter. Tee-hee. The kite fell into the sea and got soaked. Aahh but all the laughing made up for the failed attempt! We're gonna try again tomorrow. Maybe. Whee :)

Christmas & Shooting Stars.


Hello :)

I hope you dears had a lovely Christmas!

I finally get to take a break today from all the busy-buzzy-ness of the past week. But this final week of 2009 seems to be quite packed as well. Huhu. Well today I finally have the time to post an update. Hee.

Christmas was a small gathering at my grandparent's this year. Something we haven't done in a looong time. It was nonetheless merry even though there wasn't the annual planned activities. We had guitars and aspiring singers (ahem!) singing oldies and carols. A scrumptious meal. And loads of whimsical laughter. The cousins and I even managed an hour of stargazing. We saw two shooting stars! Hee.

On Christmas morning we (a family troop of eleven) had a small hike to Aki and Nina's fruit orchard to hunt for some tarap, durian, and rambutans! Fresh fresh mountain air~ :)
Later that late afternoon we did some cycling rounds. It was sooo fun! I haven't cycled in ages...! We left that night then left again at 5am the next morning for another 2 hour ride to a wedding... Well that's all for now. Will continue again in the next post! In the meantime here are just a few snaps taken at the grandparents :)

Making Pancakes Are Therapeutic.


Well for me at least :)

Few weeks ago I suddenly had the urge to make pancakes after being struck by a lovely memory of the good ol' morning breakfasts I had back home. I have always been a breakfast person. I love it when I can take my sweet time to enjoy the first meal of the day. Especially when the sunlight is still shy and the air still lingers with a little midnight chill. Breakfast is a ritual. When I'm not in a rush that is.

Lately I found that this pancake making thing has been quite therapeutic. I don't know why but there's a jolly beat in my heart and I'm practically humming my way through pancake flips! Haha.

OK, so this may not be the prettiest pancake you've ever seen, but it was still yummy!
Photobucket
Honey, is ESSENTIAL!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Dear lovelies,
I know I said I'll be posting lotsa updates once I was done with the projects and all. But obviously there hasn't been much of an update going on. I still had lots to do it seems and even more so now since Christmas is just around the corner! I will be flying back soon (!) so perhaps you can expect some holiday updates....hmhm. I'm currently going through a tough period right now... but I'm determined not to let this crush me. I've got no where else to go but forward. Pray for me, dears! Anyway, thank you for dropping by :) Please keep checking for updates ^o^

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

This morning I enjoyed my cup of green tea with toast and some cookies. At the last sip I was about to open my blog when I hit the wrong link. I was directed to my old blog. I let the page load and that's when I noticed this comment:


I know it's silly but it made me laugh. Tee-hee. Perhaps it was the green tea kicking in. What a nice way to start the day :)

Stuck.

Photobucket

Guilt. Fear. Insecurities. Anxiety. The heart is crippled. So is the mind. It's not a phase. Phases don't take a year do they? I don't know. Turning a new leaf has become routine. You walk the straight path 7 out of 10 times. But it takes only ONE time to screw up. And you find yourself starting back at square one.
Do you keep walking the straight path? Or do you give in to all the non-believers who have always waited for the day you falter? Or perhaps those who have lost their faith in you? It's worse when that lost faith is your own.
Oh, what now? You keep trying but no matter what you are judged in black and white. There is no room for 'because', 'but', or 'you don't understand.' The jury is also sick and tired. But you won't give up. You don't go roll in mud just cause you accidentally spilled coffee on you favorite shirt do you?
Despite being reduced to dust countless of times, you suck it in and accept. Owning up to your flaws. Owning up to the crimes you're guilty of. or even the ones you're not. The world continues spinning. Just don't go to bed angry.

I have a goal. Gotta keep going. Gotta. keep. going.

"Everyday I have arrived."

Fluffy, Purple & Odd.

Photobucket
I'm BACK to blogging! :D Whee I'm so happy.... :))
It's been a grueling few weeks and this week especially has been the climax of all those M.I.A days in the blogsphere. Aah wells, here I am now. Heehee. Honestly since the term started to get heavy (since my last post) I had barely worked on any piece of art! Just some random doodles to get the funk out of my system on days when things just don't seem to make sense anymore. Well I've got a whole lot of stuff planned for the break so hopefully I'll be able to post them up soon... :)
Oh, I had a Wisdom Tooth extraction 3 days ago! @_@ It was on the upper side, and I was so scared to get it pulled out at first. I mean I can't even remember the last time I had a tooth extraction! I was so tensed that I might have annoyed the dentist cause I couldn't keep still.
-___-
Well glad that's over with. Still I might have another extraction in line..... la-la don't know when!
Moving on. Hmm. I guess I'll post again soon. Feel kinda rusty. Oh which reminds me I've missed tons of updates from you lovely bloggers out there! Gah. Will be catching up soon. So in the meantime hope you folks are having a great time!
Miss y'all!

p/s: It's November!! Back when we were little carefree angels, my sibs and I would be sooo excited to get the Christmas Tree out for decorating. Ahhh miss those days : )

I didn't have a 'grand' celebration but it was nevertheless one of the best days of my life. Sweet surprises are the sweetest!
I've noticed that there also seems to be a lot of Libras [and Scorpios not to forget!] amongst blogger friends celebrating their birthday this time around... so I would like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a Happy and Blessed Birthday! I hope you dears had a wonderful time..

Thank you all for your lovely wishes...
p/s: have a great weekend peeps!

Too Much of a Good Thing.

Photobucket

Hello my dears. This is going to be a really short post. Firstly thank you all for your sweet comments! :) Sorry if I'm not able to reply, but I do appreciate your visits!
I thought I would be able to post more stuff this week but seeing as it's already Thursday... hmm.
I've been stuck for days on a 3D modeling assignment. And it's been quite frustrating! I'm not so good when it comes to modeling in 3D...
ANYWAY, this little strip is something I did during my final year of high school (which is almost 5 years ago!). Back then it was Paint. Hehe.
Hope you're all having a brilliant week!
And Selamat Hari Raya | Eid Mubarak to those who are celebrating :)

Tales of Fate

video

This here is my very first animation project back in diploma. It was a group work and basically my first time animating for a short. The project was to produce an animation trailer based on the conceptual art from our previous semester. We decided on the story of one of our group mates and the rest is history. My parts were mostly the layout design, background, ink and color, and small parts of the animation.

Aahh it's that four letter word. Sometimes deemed to be overrated. But nevertheless such a wonder it is... Like beauty we can never contain; regardless of the many words and phrases we try to make out of it---it is all that, and more. . .

Here's a lil' treat for you guys :)

This was another Typography assignment. We were suppose to pick five words from a list and create it as kinetic typo. Oh, the song is called 'Shh' by Donora. Enjoy!

I love heart shapes. Don't you?

Have A Super Week!


It's 3.59 am. I just finished with a 3D assignment that's been pretty confusing since I started. Constantly having to mentalize which is the left and right controller has made me lose the meaning of the words. My mind is lagging behind 1.3 seconds. Class is at 9am. Let me think of sweet things and pray I fall asleep in less than an hour.

Have a Super Week, peeps! :)

Home :)



This past two days apart from indulging in my assignments I've been having little trips down to memory lane. It seems that I do this often. Well not on a regular basis of course but now and then. I visited my old blog and I couldn't believe how much I used to spill in my posts back then. I know almost anyone would agree how important blogs have come to serve us in our daily lives; People who don't normally write in journals have come to do the same things through blogging; And what a surprising and pleasant find it is most of the time to find what goes through their minds and to discover how different people see and interpret things, and then to find like you've discovered a missing piece everytime you stumble on a page that seems to speak what you truly feel inside. Of course where we used to spill our hearts in our journal that is meant for our eyes only, it's interesting how technology has been able to create this wave of communication between people from all around the globe sharing insights through their own eyes with the rest of the world. Neat. huh? Of course there are the good and the bad that came with the blog era. But let's leave that for another day. I'm on a train of thoughts which seem to be jumping every few seconds.
Anyway, I think I'll be posting a few more stuff from my old blog cause I'd like to have it all in one place really. This blog was actually intended just for my art works, but art is a way of life, no? This is a blog after all. Expression is the name of the game. I guess it wouldn't hurt to have a few wordy posts like this...so, lala~

Back to missing home, here are some photos from back home...


This is the dead Tree of Life...

This is one my favorites! It was taken by my mom like 15 years ago! :)

Fairy in a Tutu.

I thought she deserved to have a post of her own :) Remember, Faerie Ballerina? She served as my blog background for a while until I decided she was a distraction! Well she's been pouting since I took her out of the limelight. So here's a post dedicated for sweet ol' Fae'Belle (aww look she's smiling again!) =]

Dear friends,
I'm going to be a bit busy over the next couple of weeks. So bear the short posts and some old works in the meantime (if I don't manage to upload any new ones!). Thanks for dropping by and leaving such lovely words of encouragement! I've already got a weeks load of work to catch up on (after falling sick for a week), and I've to focus on my projects for now. But I'll be checking in now and then to keep up to date with you lovely bunch of inspiration out there! :)

Gratitude.

Photobucket

Hello, peeps! I'm finally feeling much better after a week of torment (!). First of all thank you for dropping by and leaving such lovely comments. I'm so delighted! This whole week has been tinkling on my nerves but it has served to remind me of the many things I might have forgotten whilst being caught up in everyday life...

First of all is my health obviously. It's scary how much we take for granted; not knowing that one day there will be no more undoing of the harm (or lack of care) we've done to our bodies! Whether it's binging on our favorite foods, not stretching or taking a break after hours of sitting at the desk or staring into the monitor, or even letting stress get the best of us. Well I'm not here to give out a lengthy lecture for I am guilty of these things myself.

I know that we shouldn't wait for times when we fall sick or when bad things happen for us to realize and be grateful for what we have. But sometimes and more often than not it happens. Even if you are always counting your blessings!

Well anyway, I just wanted to savour this moment and be thankful for what I have (and don't have!) today.

What are you grateful for today? :)

p/s: thank you my beloveds for being there and allowing me to be myself (and loving me anyways!)

Rest.


I was down with a fever yesterday. A terrible headache and sore throat. Haven't felt so horrible in such a long time! Had a little scare what with the current flu virus pandemic... But with the help of some tablets and a nice warm soup (courtesy of my love:)) I'm feeling much better! I decided to dedicate this day for rest so I pretty much stayed in bed most of the hours. But after a lot of sleep I got bored and started drawing...

Please take care of your health *Note to self*

Drink lots and lots of water!

Take deep breaths...

...and have enough rest! =]

p/s: please wear a flu mask when you're out in crowded places!

Of Bunnies & Rabbits.

Here's bits and pieces of that old doodle book I wanted to share (please don't mind the bad scanning!). As you can see it's from 2-3 years back! Earlier years of uni when life was filled with drama, but not short of rabbit doodles, tea and ice-cream. I've always loved doodling bunnies. As you can find in the pages of my doodle books there's a particular she-bunny I always draw whom I never gave a name to, only referring to her as the Purple Bunny.

This was my experience flying back home with a dear friend of mine... :)



There's a lot more but I guess these will do for now. I need to get back to work! Have a lovely day ahead, peeps!
