Book Binding Workshop 10 > 25 July 2011 dan lain-lain:)

I had a great time yesterday. Old friend of mine Tips sent her 3 kids to Little Syam Book Binding workshop. We had a marathon schedule right from 10am till 12am at night:) I am glad I had separated them from workshop 09. They need a different module and approach. I managed to teach them 3 methods; asanoha toji, simple PU leather notebook and kettle stitch binding. In between we went for a short field trip shopping for material supplies, lunch break and an evening end up went for a swim at Renaissance Hotel and supper at Shazana Cafe, Kg Bahru. Pheeeeww... what a wonderful and tight day.

Quote of the Day:)

Art suffers the moment other people start paying for it. The more you need the money, the more people will tell you what to do. The less control you will have. The more bullshit you will have to swallow. The less joy it will bring. Know this and plan accordingly . Hugh Macleod

Design Proposal - Lecture Series

The Sime Darby Lecture Series brings forward prominent experts in the field of economics, society and environment. Sime Darby aims to create a learning avenue with the Lecture Series to enforce our commitment towards sustainability for the future. source from: A very interesting deco proposal for big event  - Lecture Series organised by Sime Darby at Sime Darby Convention Centre. I felt proud to be part of it. Job managed by Safinaz from Maya Puri was successfully executed and the energy that have been channel for this project was worth doing when client was happy with the outcome. The visual was an overnight job with not much changes. The topic for this year Lecture Series was about terrorism and these topic need to be translated into a deco. Using recycled, reclaimed wood as a concept, the decor are represented to complement an overall discussion topic in humble symbolic way. It was turn out close to visual I've proposed with changes here

Quote of the Day:)

And I loved the whole idea behind the story, which is that you're beautiful, so don't let other people tell you that you're not just because you don't look like the people in magazines. Or because you're not that weird ideal body image that's out there right now.   Mike Myers

Have a Peaceful Sunday:)

You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note - Doug Floyd Have a peaceful Sunday, May we learn something from yesterday:) My heart beat are pumping faster and my pray that everything will end up peacefully. The government are implemented their agenda without considering what people want. I am not saying all of them but some area are not taken care as what people want. Don't they realise they are supported by people. They are voice of people.  The one that hold the power should stop being complacent, so much tension, too much rumours in the air, people just want the betterment for Malaysia. Look at the root cause than pointing fingers to each other. I am scared where my children heading to but at the same time I am grateful that our country are much better than certain country. But I am sure things can be better. Not easy to have a multi racial people, whereby each of individual needs, sensitivity need to be taken care from every angle. What I hope is we c

Little Syam Book Binding Workshop 8 >>> 7&8 July 2011

I had so much fun, 5 students came for my Little Syam Book Binding Workshop 8. Most of them are not a full time crafter, but the passion to learn the new skill what brought them to the workshop. Sofina and Safiyya are the 2 sisters both 9 and 11 years old that came back from Oman for summer holiday. I hope they could memorise the binding technique I taught them.
