..this is 14th Feb, in the spirit of Valentine's Day (or lack thereof).. I present you... Koala!! My imaginary friend (sort of) in a form of koala bear..
It's Koala Love Bear! or is it Love Koala Bear?
Somehow to me it kinda looks like a mugshot lol..
another version, juz for fun, I did it in the watercolour style that I tried yesterday:
its head looks like it's made out of rock -_-" and too much water o_o jadi melting..
woohoo koala overload (not really)
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: Paramore - "Let The Flames Begin"
Yesterday I was reading this watercolour book at the library, and the technique that the author used was very interesting to me that I wanted to give it a try. So, at home I grabbed my dusty ol' sketchbook (ga sih..), pencil, and watercolour,.. and a mirror of course... and here are the results!!
OK, so they're kinda failed. The first one looks like I'm drunk and I look so busted. On the second one I don't even recognise my face, and obviously there's too much paint.
Wanted to try more but there's no time because I was almost late for the Emergency Late Night V-day Eve (is there such thing?) Karaoke Session. (Well ok it wasn't emergency, cuman buat bikin keren aja judul acaranya). MWIHIHIHIHI.
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: Paramore - "For A Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic"

So today I went to print out my CNY card to send it to my parents (which will be late but whatever).. just an attempt to get an angpao (hong bao? ang bao? kung pow? omg I'm so funny!!!) so.. on to the card!
The front side has the illustration i did, and the back side is just lame gradation thing with my name on it. I did my own envelope, and it's red!! (because I don't have any other colour)
Oh, so handmade.
Another recipient of this card was YX. I printed out the card at home just before I went to his house (for CNY lunch thing). Supposedly gave 1 too for Codename Emo Boy because he held a CNY party too, but I forgot to print lol whatever.
OK, 1 whole post dedicated to 1 card. I didn't show my previous christmas cards (only put up the illustrations) because I forgot to take the pictures and udah keburu di send gituw.. mwihihihi..
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: Tyra Banks show on tv, vehicles outside the HDB, children screaming, noisy neighbour upstairs

....of What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning!!!
Inspired by The Great Yi Lun's post (LOL)
Ok here it goes.. I put my full name in, and I got this long a** description o_o
You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.
You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.
You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way! --half true
You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. --duile
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.
You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something. --masa sih o_O
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun. --not true. I tend to stay out of trouble.
You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.
You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.
A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.
You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing. --true
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start. -- half true
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone. -- TEEHEE
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong. -- BEST EXPLANATION lolz
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.
You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble. --for the last time, I rarely get into trouble!
You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow. --anjirrr hahahhaa chill loh
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals. --um what
You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself. --LOL true
