I’ve been sewing a lot during this Christmas season and giving them as gifts. Will post pictures of the rest soon!









2011 header

it’s time for my yearly ritual of changing blog headers. this was my original drawing but sadly, i could not fit it in the header without losing the details. :(

pixar exhibition

a small group of us went for the pixar exhibition together and i have to say IT WAS AWESOME TO THE MAX. we spent a little more than 3 hours analyzing every single piece work available. we could have stayed even longer but the science center closes at 6.30pm.

forcing kuma to camwhore while waiting for the others. note the resemblance. HAHA.

sully and mike!

so… no photography was allowed in the exhibition but i managed to sneak quite a number of shots. i couldn’t help it. it’s too amazing not to. plus i do not have enough brain power to remember every single thing i saw.

they have a zoetrope too! the first one i saw was at ghibli studio in japan.

i love the concept art but i love the sculptures even more!

edna mode. she’s one of my favourite pixar characters. do you know she is voiced by a man?

linguini from ratatouille.

emile chomping on a sausage.

from monster’s inc. the details are crazy. having done sculptures ourselves, we appreciate all these even more.

took loads more pictures but i shan’t post them all. if you are interested, visit the exhibition yourself. :D

i’m not a child but i like toys

i think i like too many things for my own good (from toys to fashion to games and art books. may i include good food as well). i bought these figurines quite recently – probably a month ago.

big sister and subject delta from bioshock 2. i would love to have a little sister figurine as well but singapore’s not selling them at the moment.

subject delta, the main character in the game.

the big sister is my favourite character in bioshock 2 and i have no idea why (maybe because she has ribbons on her basket :\). she’s pretty difficult to kill in the game and screams like a banshee to announce her arrival. i have not started playing bioshock 2 yet. i’m waiting for the holidays to start my gaming soiree. :D

and presenting my best buys!

i got these 3 corpse bride figurines at the weekly china square flea. only 45 bucks for 3! i’ve checked and normal stores sell them at $42 a piece! insane much? i’m missing 3 more from this set but it’s alright. i shall buy them next time. figurines from tim burton’s films never get old.

amazing details and colour.

victor and his pet dog. he’s freaking skinny. so afraid he will just break into pieces some day.

my favourite of the 3 has got to be emily. i love the intricate details on her dress.

these figurines are pretty fragile due to their ultra skinny arms but they are definitely worth the money i paid. :D

tilt-shift photography

i discovered tilt-shift photography (making a real scene look like a miniature) just yesterday and was immensely intrigued by it. tilt-shift photography can be done via super professional DSLRs or the cheap way – photoshop.

here are some old photos that i “converted”. some are working pretty well, some are not. but i had fun. :D







this (above) is my favourite!



if you’re interested, read more about it here. wikipedia is our best friend. and so is google.

food for thought: why do people ask you to “google something” instead of “yahoo something”? LOL. in my opinion, yahoo sounds really uncool.
