Sketches

Image
My first few sketches since Aug 2010. The last time I sketch was a welcome back card but it was torn by me into pieces before dumping it away.

DH asked me to draw a picture of him as everyone did. I told him I only draw when I  have the mood and after dunno how many weeks, I finally have the mood to sit down and sketch on Friday night. I some how missed sketching. I used to spent at least 2 hours sitting in my room sketching. This is way back in 2003 and I stopped after I was out studying diploma. And as such, I actually ended up sketching 3 people. Some how my skill deteriorate and I kinda cheat while doing the outline for these sketches:

When will I sketch again? I think it's gonna be a long long time more.

Johnny English Reborn

Image
Rowan Atkinson never fail to make people laugh. This show is funny but he is a lot smarter compared to the previous JE. The first one was with Natalie Imbrugia? I thought Jennifer Love Hewitt... and I still have the CD back at home. Any way JE Reborn is good. Way a lot smarter not as stupid that you felt like slapping him. And also unexpectedly he can solve crime way better than the first JE where everything was dependent on luck. Good one. Laughing from the beginning of the movie til the end. Fabulous. I missed the beginning part a little but better than D who missed the whole movie and wasted 4 tickets.

I love the Royce. So nice and high tech. And not to be forgotten the wheel chair... Cool gadget.


Rating: 6/7

Pegasus. Reminded me of Sailor Moon (a character name inside is called Pegasus and it's so fairytale like that I loved it a lot. Took picture with one the other day when I went to iCity).


Any way the character was acted by Gillian Anderson. I missed Gillian Anderson from X…

911

Image
911 a very memorable date. A date that has significance to everyone around the world and even me. September 11th as it is better known is a date that most people will remember forever. I still remember that year while I was watching the news on CNN, while the World Trade Centre was falling, my friend dropped by at my house with a teddy bear. On the wrist of the bear is a lovely bracelet that I liked so much. Thank you. Although it carries a sad memory to many, life goes on. Be strong.

Last year this date, I was crying badly. Not a memory I would want to recall but this is life. Life is never sweet forever. It has its 甜酸苦辣。This year, it's a memorable one. I brought CK, DC and RG to PD and Melaka for a 2 days trip. From 8 people, the number was significantly reduced to 4 when Mr Penguin ffk last minute because he was feeling sick that day. We had lunch together at Ole Ole Bali before departing to PD. Food rating: 5/7 (Very big portion). Sorry no picture taken.

After lunch, we went t…

Innocence

Image
A lot of people is sharing Avril's Wish You Were Here on Facebook. But I want to share with you all an old song of hers tonight. I found the lyric to be meaningful:


Innocence: Waking up I see that everything is OK
The first time in my life and now it's so great
Slowing down I look around and I am so amazed
I think about the little things that make life great

I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

[Chorus]
This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

I found a place so safe, not a single tear
The first time in my life and now it's so clear
Feel calm, I belong, I'm so happy here
It's so strong and now I let myself be sincere

I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

[Chorus]

It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so …

Egg Tart in the Process

Image
As mentioned, I will blog about me making egg tart and here's the post after being so emo in the few posts before this. O... I've confirmed that my ex-teacher really has pass away. RIP sir.

I haven't bake egg tart for a very long time. It's more than a year ago. After one year of not baking egg tart, my skill deteriorate (major gone down the hill). Comparing to the previous round I made egg tart, I would rate myself 6/10 (previous times is delicious). Deduct 1 mark as the pastry is too thick, 2 more marks as the egg is not as juicy, thick and tasty as the previous time. Another mark for the pastry as it is not as "香" as the previous time because this time I didn't include milk into it (I used vanilla essence as a replacement).

Although the egg tart comes out not as satisfactory as my previous "work", I still bring and shared with those whom I care for. This is because to me, as long as I bake the tart with the heart that I'm maki…

I Love You

Image
Sorry for being so negative in my thought (I am referring to the previous post).

Although I barely knows my cousin, blood is thicker than water and I do feel sad some how. I think it's normal that when the whole family is mourning, people do get affected even though they are miles apart. I could feel/see the sadness in mummy's eyes when she told me the news on Monday. I can sense it even though she looked very calm. Mummy is someone who placed 100% importance to family and to her, she cares for each and everyone in the family tree. I should have been there for her.

I did something that I rarely do when my parents dropped me at the office the other day. I told them "loveyou". I rarely (or should I say close to zero) tell my loved ones "I love you" as I feel odd saying them out loud. You know, I know then can already. But some times it's this word of assurance that warms someone's heart. There's an exception though. I told CK most of the time. Al…

Life vs Death

Image
Life is so unpredictable. One day you saw this person and the next day he is gone from this world. You never know what will happen. I woke up in the morning and received a message informing that someone was dead in the family. I felt odd as I don't feel a thing. Neither do I feel sad nor I want to cry. It's odd as this person is my cousin. Some people has cousin who is as close as siblings and in other word, this person is my brother too. It's odd as I would cry if it's a friend. *Choi* But I'm sorry I got no emotion attachment because I barely know you.


I just realised that people do give thought on the way they are going to die. How would you spend your remaining time if you are diagnose with cancer? I found out the way they evaluate what they are going to do is so fascinating. I particularly like what Ray said. He will spend the time traveling alone, far away from the family as he does not want them to see him suffering and being unable to help. That thought of…

9 days of holidays (updated)

Image
Finally a break. How I miss studying when break is longer. How I miss being a student. But still I need to be thankful for getting a break. This is going to be a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong looooooooooooooooooooooong post.

Day 1 - Book Hunting Day
Finally it's the end of DDBU. The day after DDBU, the 1st Saturday without training any more, the 1st Saturday after my busy busy daily work too. Yeah ^^

Went to Book Fest at KLCC with Mr Penguin and friends. Although I only get to sleep 1 hour the night before, I woke up feeling so happy and refresh. I went down earlier to wait for Mr Penguin. Once I received his message that he will be late, I went up to the mart at Block A and bought HL milk to drink. I sat at the lobby and waited. I went in the car and saw Mr Penguin looking sad. He got a summon for using the emergency lane. Felt very bad cause he came all the way from home to pick us up :-(

Any way, we continue our journey. First stop was lunch at Madam Kwan. Second stop was th…

FD 5

Image
I just finished watching Final Destination 5 an hour back. After D dropped me at the lobby area, I went to the playground for a swing. I haven't been there for quite some while since I've started working late. I've tried going there a few times but it was always after raining (the swing is all wet and can't be used) :'(

Feeling emo recently. I wonder why or maybe I know the factor but just trying to be ignorance. I think this is the longest I sat at the swing. I love that feeling. At least it makes me feel so much better after 10-15 minutes spent swinging.  It helps to clear the mind, bringing it to an empty state (not thinking of anything).

Well back to FD5. It's kinda expected like what Mr Penguin said. It's kinda the same thing after 5 times. But still it managed to make me feel scare so it some how managed to quench my thirst for horror movie after so many round of horror movies since last year. It's not very scary but sufficient enough to make the …
