Mid April happenings

April 13th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

I finally got my hair redyed! Wooot! It’s been ages since my hairs all brown and I love it :) My hair colour has been pretty uneven for a long time now… but yesh, it’s all in the past ;D

Before and After

I also cut Jacky’s hair for the first time yesterday. In fact, it’s the first time I’ve cut anyone’s hair, ahahaha. Noobie alert! It was actually good fun and it turned out okay. The customer was happy and gave me the green light to be his personal hairdresser for the years to come ^^ ohohohoh.

So daylight savings ended about a week ago~ bright mornings and dark evenings are happening again. I usually get this dreadful feeling about shorter days and walking home in the dark, but surprisingly it didn’t affect me much this year. Am I getting braver? 8D

I’ve been getting back into eating Squash sessions~

And making more comics

I think I’m coping okay so far, but making these weekly can still be pretty stressful at times ^^” Hopefully I can keep these going for a while :)

So I was feeling a little..oily..?

March 30th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

I had some time on my hands today so I decided to take out some oil paint and make something :D I’m actually really bad at traditional painting so this is just a bit of mindless fun 8D. Oil paint is quite difficult to use @_@ My paint brushes were also super-old cheap ones so that doesn’t help either XD

I didn’t know what I was gonna paint. I wanted something relatively basic for my level, so my Jigglypuff plushie seemed perfect 8D I couldn’t open the lid of the white paint, so I end up chopping it off with my scissors ^^” Now I’ve just wasted the entire tube by throwing it in the bin. How will I paint light stuff in the future? XD

My finished painting.  Looks kind of strange.. more like a Clefairy than a Jigglypuff. Oh noes!
It was a pretty fun, silly experience nevertheless 8D

Nostalgia in a box

March 30th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

After a pretty scary incident which involved a cockroach, my hand and the wardrobe, I felt motivated to do a massive clean up of my bedroom yesterday. As some of you may know, I have a pretty small room.  I don’t own a lot of things anymore since I like to keep my room feeling spacious. I took everything out from under my bed, and found some pretty neat things in a box! I was squealing with delight :D :D In this blog entry, I’m going to share some of the joys I found ^^

OMG. I used to love this sooOOo much! I think I drew this in early high school and was one of my favourite pieces. Water colour sounds fun. Maybe I should try it again some time XD

Almost the end of March~ Where did the time go..?

March 23rd, 2014

Dear Chibi,
Since my previous blog entry about my redesign for MoonSticks, I’ve been mostly working on new comics and have posted up 5 so far :D I’m really happy about that and intend to keep pumping them out on a weekly basis again :) I stopped a while back because the weekly schedule was too stressful and I was losing sleep over it, but this time around I’m still losing sleep ^^”  I need to manage my stress levels a bit better~

Here are my latest 5:

Marcus’s 28th Birthday

Yesterday for Marcus’s birthday, a group of us went to the Cook+Phillip Park Aquatic and Fitness Centre for indoor basketball :D We were sweating it out for a good two hours and I had a lot of fun ^_^ I’m feeling so sore and tired right now…but  I guess that’s expected when you’re so unfit XDD

After dinner, Marcus wanted us to go with him to check out hobos at one of the outdoor courts..^^” He sounded like he really reallllly wanted to do it, so we fulfilled his birthday wish and went to see ..hobos..lol When we got there, the look on his face was priceless XDD I think that in itself was worth the trip ^__^

We then went to Meet Fresh for dessert, because Burpy really reallllly wanted to have it XD I decided to try a drink this time around, and it wassss pretty good! Would have again.

I forgot what it was called, so I put up a picture~ I’m so helpful ;D

Year of the Horse!

February 1st, 2014

Dear Chibi,
Happy Chinese New Year everyone :D May the Year of the Horse bring you much happiness, good health and fortune :)

hHappy Chinese New Year 2014

This year will be my last to receive red packets as a “child”.. Next year when I’m married, it will be my turn to hand them out. Can’t believe that time is already approaching :)

How quickly has the month gone by..

January 26th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

It’s almost the end of January and it’s my first blog post of the year…Is it too late for “Happy New Year”? XD I guess “Happy Aussie Day” is probably more appropriate since it’s the long weekend now. I’ve actually been really really busy this past month. I literally had no time for anything except sleep and work (and even during sleep, I’m dreaming about work). I worked 10-12 hours a day, every day including the weekends. I always thought you can make time for the things you love, but now I understand what it means to be truly busy. Now that it’s all over.. I’m enjoying every second of my free time :D It’s amazing.

I also found it funny that the only pictures I’ve taken this month are of foodies.. takeaway foodies XD

Photo shoot @ Auburn Botanical Gardens

December 15th, 2013

Dear Chibi,

It’s been a while since our last photo shoot, so yesterday Jacky and I headed to the Japanese Garden for a small session. We were also here for our Cosplay shoot earlier this year, so some backdrops may look familiar to you ;) We like coming here since it’s so close to home and it has some really amazing views. Couples love to come here for their wedding photos~ I wonder where I’ll have mine?…hmm! ^^
