dear my wonderful readers out there,
it seems like ages ago since i was last here. and i am so happy to see that you are still around. i have not been away. i have not gotten sick of writing. but i just want to take a little break. a short break. or a long break. i am just kind of running out of time.
this is perhaps a little pretentious. or sick. or bizarre. but i feel like i need to switch everything off for while. the lights. the tv. the computer. the phone. and learn to listen again. and see.
without anyone or anything.
i want to learn to listen and see again. with my heart. only.
a while ago i received an email at work from a lady who was having problems with her printer.
I am a retired old lady, and have trouble with my hp office jet p40 scanning text. I do not have a business, just my personal use. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. :)
i thought that was really so cute! i got so inspired by her email that i’ve started working on a series of drawings… a supercute retired old lady doing (trying to do) things connected to power plugs…
sorry about the image quality… i need to get a better scanner!
i had an almost obsessive interest in collecting owls in every shapes and colours many years back when i was still in school. my interest for everything owl-ish kinda waned after i moved to melbourne in 2000 (wow freakin nine years ago!)
yesterday i saw a t-shirt with an owl on it and i instantly became really fascinated with the print. owls are so freakin cool. supercool. it looks almost a person with wings and a beak. and some feathers…
and here’s a picture of me and my friend posing with some so-called exotic birds at the bird park in kuala lumpur. i had two owls of different species on me (i felt so excited then!).
one with the bushiest eyebrows and one with the cutest face!
i wanna take them home!
and then i would buy this tree bed and let them sleep in the cute little nest on top :)
Dear my precious blog,
I just want to say,
my Wednesday has been really really really lovely so far.
And I have a present for you.
For you and me.

I’m a little obsessed with Simon Arne‘s work right now. He’s an artist from Höganäs (a little town 20km from where I live)… I’m not exactly sure how famous he is really. But it really doesn’t matter, I think he rocks!
I mean who wouldn’t want to live with a quirky looking cat like animal with blue eyes in the living room?
Here are some of his paintings hanging in a cozy little cafe in Mölle… I got so excited when I saw them! Quirky men in patterned t-shirts surrounded by cool cat like animals with blue eyes!
Simon Arne said he was inspired to paint dots or fill up space with dots after he went for an eye examination ten years ago where he got to see lots of dots!
Inspired by an eye examination… I wish he would paint more! And I wish I had thought of that when I had my eyes checked two months ago…
well a while ago i said i was working on a painting of this old man…
it’s kinda finished now…
i really love the colours and i’m so proud with how the jacket turns out although i’m not completely satisfied with the other things – the lips and the hair and the beard and the face. but i really don’t think i will ever be completely satisfied.
i am just an amateur so give me really good constructive criticism now. i will not accept anything else ;)
my day has been uninspiring. i feel kinda bored. i feel like i have been sitting down for too long.
and i am restless! i wanna go everywhere – amsterdam, new york, paris, melbourne, bali… i wanna leave desperately. but i don’t know where. or why.
sometimes when i feel like i’m the only person in this world who is alone. isolated from the whole wide world. like being trapped in a tiny bubble.
and sometimes i feel like i have the most sensitive heart. i laugh and i cry. forever.
