Day 1

Interesting students I have for workshop this time:
Desmond designer / very creative
May designer / cute... A+ student
Christene very energetic lawyer vs mommy
Masnihan IT coach / cikgu IT that come along the way from Kuala Lipis
Lay Hoon Quantity Surveyor / Art Journaler. She attended the first workshop but missed the first  session..good to have her around.

Even the number of students not many this time, but I am happy to have them around. I prefer to have it at place where everything is ready... but since the space are available for use and very close to my home so why not and I just give a try but taking care the food side and facility and teaching at the same time is not my forte, but by help from hot chick everything went smoothly. (how can I do without you Gigi..thanksssss). Students seems to catch the lesson quite fast probably 2 of them are from design background.

Didn't have much shot to share today but I try to capture more pictures of 2nd day workshop. 
Till then:)
