it's the last day of 2010

2010, a very productive year. I produced lots of creative juices on my corporate jobs, craft projects, cooking, household matters, relationship maintenance and pet care!

I am so fortunate to have a loving relationship, an adorable kitten (kita was adopted on July 3, 2010), a passion that makes me strive for more, good friends – the ones I had and the ones I’ve made this year.

thank you to all of you who follow this blog and all your warm friendship and support.
and here's hoping the coming year brings good health and prosperity to all of us.

happy happy new year!

I'm with kita in the photo

blank box

I went to Solaris Dutamas* to visit a friend's new studio where located at Blank Box.
He is in the midst of preparing his first solo exhibition in February 2011.
His work is not just a painting but a paintstallation. Sounds interesting right? Check it out here.
Also, I'm designing some print collateral for this exhibition.
I have much more to show you in the next post, but for now, here's a preview.

*A new platform for our local artists. There is an area named Black Box where people can stage performances, and an art gallery called White Box. Among the other features will be 60 differently inspired toilets, an arts playground for children, and an arts related bazaar.


simply beautiful

nesst has this « natural style of life » at their heart which is about enhancing everyday items by mixing vintage and contemporary objects. I am totally in love with all the incredible craftmen/women and pompon the cat with their "simply beautiful" products.

pascal the chameleon

Disney's Tangled is really a nice, feel good movie. This animation of the classic Rapunzel fairy tale had enough new innovation to keep it interesting. The only thing I didn't like about this movie was the fact that I can't have a cute little chameleon like Pascal for myself!

isn't he the most adorable chameleon you've ever set eyes on?
