Things I love, find, treasure and create…

1. The pink man with a bird on the head is a present from a dear friend, he gives me inspiration and cracks me up all the time. He’s funny and I love birds so a man with a bird on the head wearing hot pink is one real trendy down to earth man! It reminds me of the friend who gave it to me too. I am Weird but Heidi is Quirky, love her fashion, her guts, her photography and her husband is a really nice guy! (For Goodness Sake, she is a year older than me….marriage is so far in my case…ahh Wateva!)

2. Tiffany Blue Musicial Carousel, I love beautiful things and this treasure was brought back from Japan. Can never stop staring at it!!! Went to a musical box museum which sells really pretty musical boxes but I really love this one! Totally grabbed it and headed to the cashier counter plus service in Japan is always excellent.

3. White Paper package with Air Mail Envelopes, an envelope book I made which makes daily life easier when you have hell lots of loose papers. It is a Envelope book that can hold your receipts, shopping list, cash, your litter, loose sheets of notes and your little secrets, sweet wrapper and many more.

4. Cloud Nine (Happiness in Chinese Character), it’s my name card! I want people to receive it and smile. Really. Really no joke, smiling and being happy is sort of my motto but when I get down I kinda of feel guilty!

5. Embroidery Badges of Making peace, found these in Australia, a dude sold them dirt cheap there!!! Yeah Man no kidding, can never find all these pretty badges here at the price he was giving!

6. White angel box, I love angels and I always believe they are beside us giving us a helping hand from GOD!!! Angels are pure with really nice soft wings, not like I seen one before but I really believe they exist!

7. Bling Bling earring and Brooch, these glitter my gray/ black dressing a little but not too much. I love black not really gray but it kind-of-goes with my skin then I need to give it a lil’ something so it doesn’t look too dull. So Bling works wonders!

8. CD Rack, Feist is on the top, love her music and her CD Cover and her quirkiness. She’s Good but there is Those Dancing Days, Tegan and Sara, Yeah Yeah Yeahs (A Must), The Last Shadow Puppets, Attic Monkeys, The Temper Trap and She & Him. Check out (500) Days Of Summer, Love the movie and Music plus the “Why do you let me stay here” Music Video feat. Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. Song By She & Him.

9. Cloth cover book, I made it recently and I love the fabric Grandma left me. Love her taste! Grandma left mum lots of all fabric which still looks so good in this era. She used to sew clothes for my mum and her siblings. It’s sad I never got to meet her.

10. A birthday card from Mum and Dad by B. Kelly, I love the art. It takes me to places I imagine of. Every time I look at it, it takes me to the woods to have a tea party, run and roll around the meadows, lay flat and stare at the sky, listen to the birds sing , play with those cute furry bunnies and come back to reality after all that!

11. Pinion Mug, the first time I saw it on Urban ran out immediately to get it. It is unique and pretty. How pretty a cup with wings, although it is black it is still cool. It’s the angel thingy, their wings!

12. Wood Grain Cover Book, Made that too. I recently learnt Book Binding and I am head over Heels with it!!! I love this wood grain patterned paper, it looks so nice to me! Can’t help it my whole family is crazy about wood especially Pa & Ma.

13. Hanashi Flyer, a friend collected this for me. I love collecting post cards, flyers and usable material. They give me inspiration and keep me busy with ideas through out my every day. As for Hanashi, the colours of the flowers and Background looks so good together! Love it! Thank you Mel!

14. A3 Cutting Mat, without this, my day is not complete because this is a tool I use daily. It is useful and a must- have in my little life! Yes! It’s a MUST for all designers!

These are the things that make me smile brightly everyday!

Why? Because of the colors, the beauty, the uniqueness and the the feeling I receive upon seeing them!

Thanks to the people who created the things I found and Bought!!!

Thanks to the people who gave me these things too!

Thank GOD for giving me hands that love to craft!

I submitted this photo for a competition! @ Cathay Photos.

Love em’all… …

Kang Dong Won

Kang Dong Won is a famous korean model and actor. Born on 18 Jan 1981, that makes him 5 years older than me. I lately only got to know of him after watching The Taoist Wizard Woochi, he kept me stuck to the screen. Why? He looked so good in the clothes he was wearing in the movie. Firstly he is 186cm tall and has a really good body figure. After all the googling and research, he is also the fashionista of korean men.

I can’t really say what but he has this aura that I do not see in other korean actors and boy is his acting good. I have now watched 1% Chance (Drama Serial) which I rate okay, The Duelist that has very beautiful sword fighting scenes (LOVE!), Temptation of The Wolves which is quite nice too, Maundy Thursday that had me heartbroken at the end (Bittersweet and Sad), Too Beautiful to Lie which was quite funny, The Voice of A Murderer which I enjoyed his cold.ruthless.intelligent killer tone and then finally M which is a really intriguing and very interesting Mystery.

Recently, I managed to catch Secret Reunion ( Movie). It was great! A story about a friendship between an ex- south Korean Cop and a North Korean Militant. I think the story was great and I was touched at the end. Kang Dong Won  suave as ever accompanied by Song Kang Ho another leading actor.

What I have yet to watch is Magic (TV Drama) .

I have seen a lot of korean dramas and movies and I enjoy their silly, funny, cute and romantic movies but Kang Dong Won’s Movies are different. I love it, he is korea’s Johnny Depp like Matsuyama Kennichi is Japan’s. It’s kind of sad that Singapore has so little of his movies that I ended up ordering some from Yesasia.com.

What amazes me more is his contrasting personality. He is usually shy, very down to earth and polite in life after watching numerous interviews but on screen he changes into so many different livelier characters! It amazes me!

What amazes me is also his fashion. I love it and I think he looks like a beautiful beast with a very nice warm heart!

PS: Kang Dong Won Shi, Aja Fighting! BTW, check out Tord Boontje too since you are into lights and interiors.

Instinc! Say Yeah to Shih Yun!

INSTINC – Real Cool ART Space

What is Instinc? I don’t think a lot of us know do we?

INSTINC was founded by Singaporean artist Yeo Shih Yun in Nov 2004. It aims to foster friendship beween other artists and organizations. instinc is a dynamic space in continuous process of creation and is committed in supporting all forms of contemporary art.

 An artist-run space.

The objectives of INSTINC:

* To provide a space managed by artists in order to establish a vibrant environment for creative practice and dialogue.

* To offer the public an opportunity to experience art in the making through OPEN STUDIOS and further visitors’ understanding of the creative process and work technique.

* To provide opportunities for the sharing of ideas between other artists and also with the broader community through activities such as OPEN STUDIOS & various art workshops.

* To bring together budding artists that can work independently yet with a sense of community and cooperation.

(Totally took the above from their webbie because it’s cool!)

Well if you look at the above, you got to agree this place is too cool. Guess what?! They even have projects for all to join! Check the ” Call fo submission” area!

Thrilled really! Well if you are an art lover or artist, why not join in the fun!

I got to know of Instinc through a Club Monaco Event a couple of months ago, we had an Art Jamming session too! I got to paint on canvas, basically we listen to music and painted freely to what came to mind or what you want to paint.

I did some spirals and a jacket, I liked both! First hand on canvas but it was fun! Really fun!

I like the Art space, it was cozy and relaxed with huge framed artworks on the wall. I also met Shih Yun, the founder of the place and believed everyone had a great time at the event!

(Shih Yun on far left)

Although ART seems to come across as a not-very-promising-future to many but those who love ART like me know the Joy, the Feeling of achievement when we finish an Art work, the beauty of Art, the results of Art and there are so many great things I can say about Art.

I love Art, I am always drawn to it and I appreciate Art and hunger for it too!

So if you want to enjoy more of ART, do check out the INSTINC website!

Have Fun! Cheers!
