Artist-in-Residence at Alila Anji

Super excited and honoured to be a guest at the Alila Anji for a series of weekends dedicated to artful explorations with kids. The program is called “Artist-in-Residence” which is part of the pop-up series of events. I’ve been asked to develop a series of art workshops for kids and adults who are guests at the…

DIY + Recycled Watercolour Set Tutorial

These days my head is filled with wanting to get more watercolours as part of my EDC (everyday carry) but haven’t been able to find the ‘right’ one apart from the Peerless watercolors I already have in my Traveler’s Notebook. Until I found these small clear containers on Taobao, but the coordinating case for it was still…

Art Journal | Get Messy Season 8: Messy Lists Part 4

Sharing my pages for the GetMessy Messy List part 4. Somehow this set of prompts got me quite inspired to do quickly (unfortunately it took me a while to get this post out). I think it is also to do with having a smaller area to play with and getting most background done before putting…

Art Journal | Get Messy Season 8: Messy Lists Part 3

This blogpost is way way way overdue. My pages for the Get Messy Messy Lists #3 and #4 were done some time ago but somehow time went in a blur and kept forgetting to take photos of them for this post. So finally, I’m sharing my Messy List #3 here below. Thank you for looking.

‘Happy Little Moments’ Workshop

So excited to share with you all about the recently concluded Planner/Journal Market (手帐集市)that was held last May 1. This is the third time that I’ve been to this 1-day event but this time around, I was asked to give a 40-minute workshop about decorating with Instax photos, wash tapes, stickers and etc. on the Midori…

Art Journal | Get Messy Season 8: Messy Lists Part 2

So far so good with keeping up with the Get Messy art journal Messy Lists challenge. I’m enjoying the time spent in the evenings to make my pages. One thing I have noticed though is that I realised I spent more time than needed on these pages… I seem to have reverted back into “over…

Art Journal | Get Messy Season 8: Messy Lists Part 1

It’s Season 8 of the Get Messy art journal challenge. Last year I ended up only getting up to Season 2 and 3 because my full-time work got too hectic. And I also realise that I seem to overthink my pages and spent too much time visualising how it will look which in the end,…

Pocket Letters

Have you heard about latest ‘craze’ with Pocket Letters, started by Janette Lane? There is a lot of posts on IG about this. I’ve only stumbled upon this a couple months ago and have had the pleasure of swapping with a couple partners on the Pocket Letter Pals site. Unfortunately I was too excited to…

Valentine’s Day Gifts

Back in January, been thinking of something I could make for my family as a little Valentine’s present. And then voila! I found Freckle Photoblog via Ali Edwards’ blog and instantly I knew it was the perfect project for someone as busy as me.

So Ecstatic!

Yes! I’m so over the moon today. Thank you to Grandma G, I made my own homemade deodorant, something I would never have thought I’d end up making one day. I tried it out today wearing sleeveless top. And so far, no smell at all, which is something that has never happened with store-bought ones…

Long Time Coming

It has indeed been some time since I managed to blog just about anything. For some reason when December started, we got swamped with work which is great of course, as it made up for the very slow beginning of 2009.

So I’ve been trying to find little pockets of time in between work and weekend…
