I think I’ve mentioned this many times before on my blog, but i’m not exactly good with my hands. There are people out there who have a natural affinity for this sort of thing (painting, pottery, fixing lightbulbs, cooking, etc.) — I, sadly, am not one of them. As a kid, I always had my nose in a book, and while I could spout obscure … Continue reading Picking Up A New Hobby: Embroidery

Normally I’m not into the whole hype thing with new cafes because I hate lining up (so many better things I could do with my time… play computer games, for instance. lol) but this one, I really wanted to go to after seeing a friend’s Instagram post. That’s because MANCAVE Cafe and Collectibles in Bandar Puteri Puchong is home to dozens of lifelike toys and … Continue reading Love Toys and Superheroes?

*late post I know I’m always clamouring about how I’m working 24/7, but on rare weekends where I DON’T have actual work to do… I’m bored to death :’D Decided to clean my room and found an old cache of (expired) eyeliners and nail polish. It was a waste to just throw them out, so I did a little something: Tada! It’s been awhile since … Continue reading Sunday Sketches
I can’t sew to save my life. I mean, a loose button won’t be a problem, but anything beyond that will have me stumped. If this was 50, 60 years ago, I’d probably be ‘unmarriageable’, but thankfully (or not?) times have changed. Still, I think sewing is a great skill to have! 🙂 While catching a movie with S at One City USJ recently, we … Continue reading Sewing World Gallery, One City USJ
Ever since I started working, I haven’t had much time to touch my pens – either because I was too tired or too lazy after a long day running around looking for stories. I picked them up again recently and realised how much I’ve missed drawing just for the fun of it. Here’s my latest work! *PS: I am by no means a professional artist, … Continue reading Sketches – Bunga Raya / Gumamela
It’s Deepavali (or Diwali as it is known in some other parts of the world), which is the festival of lights for Hindus. My neighbours were letting off fireworks earlier, but it started raining a few minutes ago. >-< Here’s a kolam-inspired peacock sketch that I did in the evening. Took me an hour to draw and colour … I haven’t had much time to … Continue reading Happy Deepavali!
Hipsters can’t be defined because then they’d fit in a category, and thus be too mainstream.- Urban Dictionary What is a hipster? I have been called a hipster-wanna-be due to my penchant for indie bands, love for beanies and my perhaps slightly holier-than-thou, know-it-all attitude. (gimme a break guys, I’m an INTJ :D) The fact that I’m working in the media/writing industry probably contributes … Continue reading Hipster Haul from Typo, Pavilion KL
