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 :)


pretty owl pictures come from:
The Owl in front of an abandoned House , vellumminous rex , great gray owl , owl teaparty! , little red riding owl and hedgehog


Love me, please love me

Dear my precious blog,

I just want to say,

my Wednesday has been really really really lovely so far.

I’m daydreaming.

And I have a present for you.

A playlist for daydreamers.

For you and me.


PS: A daydream is a visionary fantasy experienced while awake, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions.

PPS: If you do not have Spotify:

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! 



Looooove this…


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…

Check him out.

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.

Hiya, I hope you’re still around :)

Here are some of things I did during the past 7 weeks :)

I spent some time with my family visiting from KL.

I had them say hello to me :)

We went to the botanical garden in Göteborg and took pictures of pretty flowers.

My mom (and papa too!)  loved the cherry blossom trees.

We drove past Varberg on the way back and I was glad we did!

We found a door leading to Narnia, of course…

Oh and we were also in Örebro and took the obligatory photo of the Örebro Castle.

I got married once more there, too.

Just in case.
