Something in-between










Water Colour Drawing




My drawing skill getting rust. Life starting getting busy, I wish I can slow down and taking few steps back but doing nothing just killing me. I determine to finish off every page of my miniature book with bird drawing...Time becoming too short.

BLAM at Jaya One















My first event after being hibernated for many months. Received a very good response and I had a wonderful time meeting up with many beautiful people who passionate attended my workshop. Getting help from my angel Shasha... Can't describe how tiring due to long hour... but it's always nice to be surrounded and communicate with people. Getting their first hand respond is always precious.

“I've made peace with myself.
Good for you. That's the hardest war of all to win.
Didn't say I won. Just stopped fighting.”
~ Joe Abercrombie, Best Served Cold

Out of the misery I can't express how lucky I am to find a place where I found my peace. Allah definitely have a better plan for me.
