what do you value in yourself?

How are you? 

I'm doing O.K. Still hanging, tinkering my way to work on myself as an artist. In fact, I'm in the midst of reflecting my values as an artist. 

I started disconnecting myself away from social media since the beginning of June. Away from numbers, views and fucking algorithms. To be frank all these pressure of posting content every week makes me demotivated. Makes it no fun of creating new paintings. It's really crazy how society view people based on their followers/ likes etc. I had to do something to enlighten the fire inside to create more art.

So i took the time to paint something experimental. Something I've never done before. If you view my previous blog entries, you know what i mean.

Always remind yourself to be better tomorrow than today. Persevere and you’ll get there.

Inside my sketchbook + life updates

Some snippets from my sketchbook, which took me awhile to complete. Portrait sketching is one of my favourite hobby before my watercolour journey and it still is. Although I might need more practice in understanding the facial muscle to make it look decent. 


I used reference of course! Else I'd be crazy to be able to draw these lol

Drawing portraits also helped my observation. And I found out that there are alot of blue shades used.




How are you?

It has been months since I've posted a blog post. To sum it up, it has been a roller-coaster. A big change in a city I have yet to visit for a year. Somewhat overwhelmed with different culture than in Brunei. I have stayed in Kuala Lumpur for 7 years before, I should be able to fit in- I didnt.  Things move way faster, way more efficient that I could grasp what the whole idea was. Mrt routes confuses me. I didnt know you can use the Watsons card as the TnG card, Like a Kampung girl living in the city, minus the whole glamour from what you've seen on TV. 

I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Go back to square one and relearn the basics. Thank god I'm still able to initiate a conversation with strangers.

It may be a challenge but I know I need time to readjust myself. What I adore living in the city is that I get to be myself. Meeting different people from different walks of life intrigues me. Totally grateful that I have this side of me that wants to know people. That I know I can have a chance to get out from my shell.


Until then , Thank you for whom reading my journey.

Have a great day!
