The reason I consider smoking so serious is because many years ago my grandfather passed away of lung cancer. I've seen the pain it caused to him as well as his family members. So it really beats me why anyone would take up smoking knowing fully the potential dangers. Why would someone intentionally damage his or her health? I think health is one of the most important things to have. I'm saying it because I'm alot better off now than in the past when I had serious allergies.
Yay, dad! Hopefully he can keep it up.
PS. Thanks for your lovely comments, sil!

I'll post updates on the portfolio that I'll be working on- I'm particular excited about the Parsons challenge! My portfolio will be my first priority after A levels. I'll be returning to Malaysia for a short while too. A nice change of scenery might inspire me :) Since I often speak of Malaysia, I think I'll bring a camera this time to document the places I often go to when I'm there, the things I do, the food I eat etc. and show you guys the photos (do the same too, Sil! Ly you don't have a camera right?). I'll also blog about my sis' jewellery projects (so many planned out now).
I think it'll be fun to show our wardrobe and accessories plus my mum's! Maybe in a video. She's collected a wealth of beautiful jewellery and it'll be a pity not to show it.
Yup, so basically our holiday activities. So many things I can do! Just need to get the exams over and done with first.

It means alot to me to be able to share my work with the people who matter the most to me, my family and friends. If you look closely you'll be able to see the stack of my postcards on the floor. Of course I gave one to my brother's girlfriend aka my future sis-in-law :) They seemed pretty impressed by the exhibition.
And today... was our last japanese class. Sayonnara to the years of classes at the language centre! So many memories. Feels like I'm very different from the person who first stepped into the lc.
The view from outside our container classroom.
Our sensei treated us to machya (green tea) rolls with cream and a red bean paste centre. Super super delicious!
Class photo in our classroom. Trying to be kawaii. I love the paw action! Reminds me of the raccoons in Hayao Miyazaki's film.
またね！(means see you again)

This is the outfit I was referring to in my previous post. I think it's SUPER DUPER COOL. I must be a deprived kid. What else could explain my desire to cross-dress? You can tell from the silly smile on my face that I so enjoy doing this :) I knew I should have bought the pirate hat from Tokyo Disneyland. Then I can wear it with this outfit. Muahahaha!
WOW. How mysteriously alluring this collection is. Rei Kawakubo seems to exploring the quality of black in a way that is different from the other designers. Black is the absence of light or colour and consequently often looks heavy and oppressive. Rei seems to have embraced this quality in her use of leather. But at the same time, black can take on sheen or lightness based on the material used, a point which Rei also displays. The hairdos are out of this world too. They give the effect of wisps of smokes, which counters the stuffiness of the funereal black. I sense a metaphysical quality in the presentation of this collection.

Drawings of my sis done some time ago. I really need to draw more. It's painfully obvious from these that drawing is my weakness.
Sketch of my IP2 UOB painting.
My very first still life and first time using acrylic paint in IP1.
