Everything in life is amazing, regardless.

Marc Jacobs

I was soaking wet by the time I finished my morning walk earlier, not with sweat but because of the rain. The cold rain tickles my face as I walk home, it's a nice crazy feeling being wet and all. It's like in the movies (without the drama). I just wish I have a dog. 


My illustration is inspired by Marc Jacobs Fall 2012. I can see myself wearing something similar in the fall and I must take note of the "Leprechaun inspired hat. That will definitely make someone stand out from the crowd. Marc Jacobs is one of the people I admired the most, he's a self-made man who became really successful in the field of fashion.

Myself in Cartoon

Me in Cartoon

I sketched myself based from a photo I took awhile ago. I'm thinking to do a project about portraits and cartoons mixed altogether. Not sure exactly what I'm going to do yet but will see how it goes. I'll keep you posted

The Picture Works

Dun Laoghaire

I had a migraine after a client's meeting earlier so I decided to go home and took panadol. I was able to sleep but my head is spinning after a phone call. This day must not be my day after all but my phone beeps again, The Picture Works told me I've won in their photo competition. WOW, just WOW! 

I love my Canon 5D, I guard it with my life but you see, the photo above was taken with my Canon point and shoot camera, I think it was a low tech Canon Ixus back in the day. But what matter was I captured the boats and the sky in a splendid way. It has been my favourite eversince and had it printed to as wall display. The photo has been photoshopped of course.

I think you have to love your work first before other can appreciate it. Through the years, I've learned to love mine.

Bray Summerfest 2012


I'm afraid of riding carnival rides, I'm a chicken like that. Except of ferris wheel where I can see the world up in the sky, slowly. Though I'm spontaneous, I like foreseeing my path at my own little pace. It's not worth rushing things I'd regret in the end.

Some circumstances changed my mindset to see things properly, I'm taking it sweet and slow like riding in a ferris wheel, enjoying each moment and celebrating life the way it should be.  

On Sunday, we spent the whole day watching Breaking Bad, all Season 4, come dinner, no one is keen on cooking something so I suggested perhaps walk to the park and buy takeaways after. I don't know what happened but we just kept on driving and had this random idea to why not check the Irish Sea from Bray. So off we went and surprised to see carnival rides and lots of happy people. It's nice... and spontaneous.

Emily Bronte


Hope was but a timid friend; 
She sat without the grated den,
Watching how my fate would tend,
Even as selfish-hearted men. 

She was cruel in her fear;
Through the bars one dreary day, 
I looked out to see her there, 
And she turned her face away! 

Like a false guard, false watch keeping, 
Still, in strife, she whispered peace;
She would sing while I was weeping;
If I listened, she would cease. 

False she was, and unrelenting;
When my last joys strewed the ground, 
Even Sorrow saw, repenting, 
Those sad relics scattered round; 

Hope, whose whisper would have given 
Balm to all my frenzied pain,
Stretched her wings, and soared to heaven, 
Went, and ne'er returned again!

Awesome July

It has been awesome feeling to start my "birthday month" by winning a moleskin via 30 Days of Creativity! It was totally unexpected but definitely appreciated. I joined their group for the purpose of forcing myself to create something artsy every day. It is like exercising my brain and think hard to come up with something I'd share with them for the whole month of June. We were encouraged to finish the 30 days and I'm glad I made it till the end so yay, I pat myself on the back. Delighted to do this and I enjoyed exploring every icon tools available in Photoshop which I didn't know exist.

Think I'm ready to join another challenge, bring it on (",)
