If love is predestined..

February 8th, 2016

如果愛是命中注定的相遇
為何還會有這麼多痛苦
是什麼遮住了你的雙目
不再珍惜我的付出~

Dear Chibi,

I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG :’D

*Replays it for the 1 millionth time*

Hubby: sigh ~~”

 

Dessi & Ying’s Wedding Reception

Dear Chibi,

My cousin Dessi and his wife Ying tied the knot in China last year, and finally held their wedding reception in Sydney :D The dinner was a family-only event and was held at Crystal Seafood Restaurant at Strathfield.

Sompies’s Birthday Lunch @The Grounds

January 31st, 2016

Dear Chibi,

somps29-thegrounds01

This year Sompies celebrated her 29th birthday with lunch at ‘The Potting Shed’ at The Grounds of Alexandria :D This has gotta be the most hipster place I’ve ever been to ;D Lots of cool things to see, but I didn’t stay too long since I had other plans that evening. Oh well, I will probably be back here for James’s wedding later this year if logistics allow :)

Hubby was still in Malaysia, so Sompies and Dong kindly picked me up along the way and dropped me home afterwards. It was a really nice and warm day~ so warm I wish I’d brought a hat or worn sunscreen :’D

Oatley Park Photo shoot

January 18th, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Last weekend Hubby and I went to do a small photo shoot at Oatley Park, a nice little picnic area with a small beach. We headed out there around 4.30pm and it was still pretty bright due to the summer season. It was a pretty fun session though I felt so tired afterward. Is this a sign of old age?! Nah, more like…sign of lazy, unfit Jen ;p

Here are some sneak peeks from the shoot ^^ Thanks Hubby for the photos! :D

New painting to start the New Year

January 2nd, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Happy New Year everyone :) I spent my New Years day doing a portrait painting of Liu Yifei (Yes, it’s her again!) Click on the image below for a slightly larger view :D

Liu Yifei digital painting

I don’t like to think about how long it takes me to do a painting, because it always makes me feel inadequate ^^” I DO THIS FOR FUN OKAY, PLS DON’T JUDGE. XD I find painting hard, even when using a reference image.

Anyway, I’m really happy with how this one turned out! :D My favourite part is the left eye (her right eye). Funnest part to draw was the hair.

Work in progress

liuyifei-2016-WIP

I kind of slacked off toward the end, with the shoulders and lower half of the painting ^^” Too tired. Please forgive me 8D I hope you like it too!

Holy moly the nostalgia

December 30th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

When I started browsing through archive.org (an internet archive), I wasn’t prepared for the amount of nostalgia headed my way. I revisited old websites and forums I used to spend hours and hours on, and also retrieved files I’ve lost over the years, including these awesome art gifts! These were all from online friends I met from as early as 2003. I was still in High School! :’D

Lol. I love how it says ‘From Blox the lazyass’ XD Yes, he couldn’t even be bothered to clean the lines ;D Very cute picture though. I love Aeris from FF7 :)

Oh my, this used to be my most favourite Yui fanart XD THIS IS SO CUTE. Art by Blox.

Well, Legacy of the Void is here!

December 29th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

AH, Starcraft 2. It’s been months (years?) since I last played Heart of the Swarm, and I wasn’t sure if I would end up getting the new Legacy of the Void protoss expansion~ but it’s Christmas time, and my bro is awesome so… NOW I’VE GOT THE GAME 8D

starcraft-lotv03

Oh these note pads :’D. This is gonna sound silly but I’m slightly disappointed by the fact this notepad design is not Protoss/Starcraft exclusive. Where’s the consistency? I don’t want a generic Blizzard image, XP.

starcraft-lotv02

I spent some time checking out the new features, game modes (archon mode, CO-OP, vs AI) and had a glimpse of the new units. Most of the game feels about the same, except I’ll probably have to learn new build order/openings since the timing is all crazy off with additional starting workers, and less mineral patches. Interesting to see how I can incorporate the new Terran units too. They’re kinda weird at the moment, haha.

Well, I guess it’s time to Find Match! :D

 

Kerry & Jia’s house warming with family

December 29th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday we spent the day at Kerry & Jia’s new house! This place feels huge~ very spacious and filled with light. Considering they only moved in a couple of weeks, they sure have a lot of things sorted XD.

Some anatomy practise sketches

December 27th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Oh boy. I really haven’t drawn anything in a while, have I? I’m feeling really rusty! I had some time to spare, so I decided to do some anatomy study. It was kind of fun : ) I might do more of these when I’m bored, hehee.
