Daiso here i come!

Hahahha, i've never made it out of Daiso empty handed... NEVER!!

there's always so much things to see and buy..(even though I might not really need some of them, but, heck!!)

After a long time of not stepping in there, hehehe.... look what i got!

They're lovely...!
the minute i saw them sitting on the shelves there, i knew i had to get them!
HAHAHAHA... never mind that they are a little too small, they're cute, and that's all that matters! :P

Doodle- Toadstool forest

We've been having slightly damp/humid weather off late...
and on the way to mom's house i noticed a little collection of toadstools sprouting up along the side walk. How cute!
There's something about toadstools that seems mysterious to me.
They spring up out of no where and then disappear after awhile.

But while they are around, those little clusters look like a little magical forest! :)

A Prayer for Fleur

I came across Fleur's blog sometime ago and after a while, we communicated by visiting/leaving comments on each others' blogs.
Fleur is a brave lady (although sometimes she does not admit it) who is fighting cancer. Off late, she had not been updating her blog and this got quite a few readers worried and we soon found out that she wasn't doing too well as her liver had failed to function.
But her family has said that she is still fighting on.

They have requested prayers for her today, Psalm 23 at 9pm.
I'm praying for God to give her strength during this difficult time... join me!

Up (up and away!!)

Managed to catch this animation sometime last week.
Very well done i must say! Good job to Pixar on the story line and graphics!
Its funny, touching and exciting all at the same time. (It managed to make me shed a few tears even! which was embarrassing when the lights came on :S... must be the hormones acting up!)
We watched it in 3D... I thought the big glasses were a tad cumbersome... think it'll look just as good on the normal screens too. :)
Have you watched it yet? Go if you haven't!

Lately, my tummy feels like it has become a balloon... changing in shape and size...
(Hehe, if you had noticed my new blog, you'll know what i mean!)

Visit to Fruit Paradise@ Orchard Central

Decided to pop by this new mall along Orchard Rd yesterday for a look see yesterday.
Hmm, looks like a nice building to get lost in. Oh and let's not get to the number of escalators that are in this mall!
They are EVERYWHERE!! They also have ultra high express ones that get you between 4 floors in a jiffy. (but a pain if you happen to get on a wrong one and want to get off at some floor in between)
Anyways, one of the reasons for the visit was to try out Fruit Paradise, the japanese pie cafe which i had read about. Oooh, the pies in the display are really pretty and remind me much of the ones I had seen in japan. Yummy!!

Quite a few flavors to choose from...

Decided to go for the blueberry one as it had a custard filling. Some of the others were just filled with cream, lots of it! (eeeks :S)
Verdict: Yummy! The pie crust was good and crunchy. And the custard filling was good and the fruit toppings were fresh too. But if you hate cream... or on a major diet, hahaha, maybe you should try some place else. :P
And good place to rest your feet (its a plus if you get the seats at the further end coz there's the window view and more privacy.)

matryoshka bunny fabric!!! Its here!!!

My first attempt at fabric design is finally here!! Yay!!
I was super duper excited to see the Spoonflower parcel sitting in the mailbox yesterday evening and had to resist ripping up the envelope to get to the contents! :)
OOooh I am so pleased with the results and you bet I'm going to be printing more fabrics with them soon! :)
One problem now though... the fabric is so cute, its going to be hard to cut it up!! :P

Have you seen this T-shirt???

I got to see my 'pirated' doodle t-shirt in church again when the girl who owned it wore it again last week and sat 2 rows in front of me!! Oh how i wished i could take out my cam and get a pic of it!! but the last time when i approached her to ask about where she got the 'offending' t-shirt from, I think i made her feel really awkward :( so i decided i would leave her alone and just fume about it from behind. *fume fume fume* (well, its no fault of hers as she totally had no idea that its a copied design.)

So anyways, if anyone of you does see a T-shirt out there with a pattern that looks like this, PLEASE... let me know ok? The color of the t shirt is something like this, but the line work is way thicker and blacker. :( (probably thickened to cover up the pixelation.)

Haiz, some people out there just have no ethics at all and snitch works/designs off the internet and reproduce them! :(

Little miss porkers

Its been almost 3 weeks since we boarded Pigmy at our place coz she's been put on several medications for fur-loss. :(
Well the furry one is doing better now, she's not as 'naked' anymore and is super greedy too! hehehe... here's some cute pics of her! :)

The Sleepy sleepy, but there's much to be eaten..."yawn... nom nom nom...."

Wheeek!! I'm well again and look... my fur's grown back! yay! XD pretty again! hehe!

Busy nom-ing away... so much to do, so much to eat... its hard being a piggy! :P

Bobbers on the rainbow bridge

Yesterday was a sad day! :(
My sister had to make the painful decision of sending her beloved bunny to the rainbow bridge. The whole episode was really unexpected and sudden, but it was a selfless decision and difficult one for her too as she was not able to be there. (I'm sure Bobbers understood!) :( Hard as it was, this decision saved her bunny from going through much pain or suffering.
We had witnessed the pain small buuny went through before he went to the rainbow bridge last month, so I am glad Bobbers is spared any of that.

Although I have not met Bobbers personally as she is in Melbourne, I've heard and seen many stories and photos of the feisty but cute one.

In memory of Bobbers, I did a doodle of her, sitting on her own cloud on the rainbow bridge with her favorite piece of fleece and Mr. Carrot. :) She's probably wondering if she should visit Raisin Land or the Great Carrot Patch first.

The sakuras were lovely... and best of all, they were pink! My favorite color! :P
Here are some lovely pictures from my trip!

Little India photoshoot

Been going to Little India for the last 2 days to do some location shooting for an on going project. The place is full of interesting sights, sounds and smells. And it was also very warm, and I got sunburnt! Its been a busy week! clearing loads of work before we get going on our holiday.
But some how, running up and down Little India didn't really feel like work :)

here are some shots that I'd like to share. :)

This is a shop that sells clay pots for incense burning during prayers.

And flowers shops are a common sight with many along the streets.

Pretty Indian outfits for sale at the market. Look at all that shiny beads and bright colors! :) really pretty.

This uncle at the chappati shop was really friendly and obliging, :) he let us film him going about preparing chappatis.

Bangles! another pretty thing! shiny and colorful. :)

Lots of vegetable shops here too. Nice array of colors from the different variety.

Illustration Friday-Intricate

I always thought traditional batik fabrics were lovely, filled up with intricate patterns. Some had animal or plant motifs and others had repeated abstract patterns.
I did get to try batik when i was studying, and it was a challenge dripping the wax out evenly. the tool used to dispense the wax was called a canting, a wooden handled tool with a tiny metal cup with a tiny spout, out of which the wax seeps. mine always clogged up...
So, here's my doodled pen and ink version of batik. :P

Illustration Friday-Breezy

The other day, i watched a documentary on plants' seed and fruit dispersal methods.
On breezy days, some flowers disperse their seeds in the wind.
Another "Discovery Channel" inspired piece! :P

Illustration Friday- Celebrate

Not too long ago, i was watching a nature documentary about a mother and baby whale making their way around the globe. Their journey was fraught with much dangers to the little calf, like large whale bulls and killer whales.
But at the end of the journey, it was a reason to celebrate when they got to their destination safely.
I gave them some happy bunny angels to watch over their journey! :P

Cookies! :)

Its been a long time since I last baked, and over the weekend while i was cleaning my bookshelf, I saw my 500 cookies book and knew I just had to make something! :)

And I picked the white choc chip and cranberry cookie to make....
my baking skills are a slight bit rusty(was a bit slow and goofed up with the timing) but i guess with a bit more polishing up they'd be ok!

Yummy! :)
