In the end, all fuss surrenders to persistence.
Just completed this piece this afternoon and it’s a relief.
I had been taking a great effort in making this piece a success. Although there was frustration, struggling, thrilling, dubiousness, worrisome; up and down during the process, but they all flee eventually.
Looking at the piece makes me a big grin on my face now.

This is what I have been up to the whole day today.
Well, it looks totally new to me even though I had very little knowledge on this during my college time. I could barely recall any of the pieces from my memory again.
So, all in all, I call myself again as a newbie to this.

I’m so excited and so looking forward to receiving this DVD album, even though it’s still a month to go. I’ve never been more itching for David’s live stage album in my life.
Am counting down the day everyday now. Heee!

These are something simple but nutritious for the sake of well-being. Also, these are very ordinary Malaysian Chinese homemade dishes too.
I always like to top this pork ribs radish soup with thyme. It makes the dish even aromatic.
Just realise that I’m running out of chilli when I cook this mixed veggie. I should have recalled it when I did my groceries last nite. Geez.
Before the parsley flakes were whisked in the egg.
Love my effort in making a nice round shape of this parsley omelette! Haa
Sprinkling some black sesame seeds on top before served.

Hmm… Darling you’re spoiling me! Hee hee. But I do really enjoy these plump durian puffs. They’re just too yummy that never cloys!!!
They’re from here… This is the reason why I called it LUXURIOUS (may be PRICEY instead). Haa
A glimpse on my effort so far. This looks better now. Still have more to carry on…

"Like the meeting of the seagulls and the waves,
we meet and come near.
The seagulls fly off,
the wave roll away and we depart." - Tagore
The shrill joy floated above all laughter and noise...

话说这应该归咎于前天我和C君的argument on which 金庸笔下的女子是我们最喜欢的。我说赵敏郡主，C君的则是周芷若。这么巧这两个都是张大教主的女人。结果C君就开始数落我的赵敏，说她的种种不是。我当然是不服气啦。大家一来一往的针锋相对，一刻也不容缓。
我废话不用多说啦，instead of 长篇大论，大费周章来夸大其词，我就用这几个字来形容昭敏：

Lao pig, I think this was yours but now it is mine. Hehe *crunching*
This thing is resembling the rice cake but I've no idea what it's called.

I'm overwhelmed with SHOCK since this evening.
That news came like crushing blow – a colleague from another section under the same department whose husband was just killed in a car accident this afternoon. One of the tyres blew up suddenly when running on highway causing the huge trailer turned over and colliding into the barrier on roadside. Meantime, the man was thrown out instantly of the car and somehow been crashed between the trailer and the barrier and killed on the spot.
The first thought that struck me wasn’t ‘life is fragile’ or ‘short’ or what. I was thinking how she could live on without her husband for the rest of her life? In term of the life companion and spirituality; if they both loved each other so much and deep. This is so tough and hard to get thru, I think.
To me, I can’t live without my darling. He is my all in all, invaluable soul mate and life partner for eternal. Definitely not in term of financial support or any materialism related stuff. I can earn the money and spend them on my own. But not the LOVE. I definitely can’t bear to lose him and his love with me. We are both UNITED and we LIVE TOGETHER and shall LEAVE TOGETHER too.

That’s FLOWER, which indeed upset me and spoiled my mood thoroughly. I shouldn’t simplify the figure and make it in more impressionist manner. I should realise early why my instructor kept reminding me to make the exactly the same one. In fact, he wanted to train my ability of adherence to the real object’s structure. In a nutshell, the painting should be in a very realistic manner this time. I was oblivious about his motive!! Oh, I’m a real IDIOT!
My mood was really bad about few hours ago and had no appetite at all. I didn’t take any dinner tonight but merely a strawberry roll I bought from 7-eleven after got off from MRT Singapore.
I’m getting much better now. Am watching David Garrett’s (my favourite German violinist who specialise in rock symphonies) plays on violin on Youtube. That diverts me from overwhelmed with the bloody grief again.
I thought to bin the horrible painting at the first place but probably I need not dump it. Instead I could figure out a solution to fix it.
Well, the worst case I will just repaint a new one again. That’s not a big deal and need not to freak me out anyway. I think I’m going to standby a new canvas first. Just in case.
This is the EXPRESSION I like most. Natural and thoroughly reflecting my personal characteristic. But Oops, the glasses were slightly tilted.
I lingered over the Gloria’s Jean Café for about two and a half hours – ordering a piece of choc croissant and, caramel latte the coffee I like most, reading a magazine with the MP3 on. Those are the albums from Govi – Your Lingering Touch (on guitar mainly), and Kevin Kern (piano) – More Than Words, very sentimental songs and some other string instruments plays.
It had almost got to the bottom but the flower was still there. It tasted sweet. May be this is the ordinary type as it is quite common over all the places. Well, I still prefer the SALTED type in all. Merely personal taste.
Checking and updating my planner and reviewing the painting notes.
I bought this handy pocket notebook during my trip to Hong Kong last year. No particular reason but just been attracted by the unique design – Alice and the Caterpillar printed over the fabric as the cover of the book.
Showing off my first and the only handmade shoes I have. Hee.

Just bumped into a mid-age gentleman next door whom I never seen before. We started the conversation in English.
I was curious about his slang, and his outlook completely resembled a pure Chinese but why didn't he just respond to my query in Mandarin when he seemed like stuck with some WORDS…?! Many question marks floating above mine. Another Singaporean who insisted to use English as the first language for communication again?!
Without second thought, I asked him if he was a Chinese. He denied. He told us that he is a KOREAN. Wow-wow-wow!!!
He told us that after he settled down here, his wife would be coming over too.
Gosh! We are going to have new Korean neighbours very soon! KIMCHI NATION. Ha. Exciting!!
A little cadbury biscuit with hazelnut crumbs inside and a fragrant cuppa, the best way to temporarily drive me away from the crabby spirit. Hee
This boxy thing storing so much task I gotta memorize and recall from time to time. It's my MOBILE-BRAIN in fact. Well, it does look like a SCRAPBOOK too, huh?!
My day is done EVENTUALLY!!! Phew~
