watercolor of the day #1

Tried out some watercolor brushes in Photoshop.

The outcome seemed pretty cool! I really, really dig how watercolor looks on paper. It has this incomplete look that makes it somehow look...perfect!

Gotta practice a lil more :)

doodle of the day #1

I downloaded a few new brushes for Photoshop and experimented with it! Never knew different brushes create different effects....

Ahhh...I might just love digital drawing a little much better now... :)


This is totally not my style....but it's time to try something different!

I call her....Charlotte. Simply because she looks like one :D

Life in Melbourne


I didn't really say much about this but I'm currently in Melbourne for my studies and I LOVE IT.!!! As I grow older, I feel less of the need to post about everything in my life. (which explains the lack of updates) I like to keep it a little more private :)

Besides, most of the fun is offline! Not to say that I don't enjoy blogging, I do! But once in a blue moon is fine. Haha. And today is that blue moon.

Anyways, I am so happy today!!! which is why I wanted to blog.

If any of you are ever considering to go overseas to study, please please please please x100000 do! I'm not dissing those who are studying locally - I'm just saying that, if you do have a chance to go, please do. Especially if you are taking a course that deals with creativity.

We can't always live in our same small bubble and expect that our good is good enough. Once you go outside, you will understand that maybe your good isn't good enough. But that's okay. That's what this is for! You have the time to change, you have people to teach you, you have friends around you to encourage you to work harder!

When I was in Taylor's, I almost never felt the motivation to strive harder than what I can do. I always stick to what I do best. But here in Melbourne, the amount of talent in my class is OVERWHELMING. I can't just stick to what I do best. I have to do better than my best! //Etc. constantly improving and changing// And that's what I'm trying to achieve.

That basically wraps up what I want to share. A lot of people have been telling me to stay back - etc overseas studies may not be the best... but always trust yourself and (your mum :P) and God! and believe that everything will turn out okay in the end.

Melbourne is just wonderful. The weather? Pfft. It's like a woman with pms. :P

Other than that, I really love it!!!

thought of the day

“The only time you should look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don't look in your neighbor's bowl to see if you have as much as them.”

God will never give you more than you can handle.

 Thought of the day.

Yesterday, I was asking my friend, “Why do good people suffer and bad people win?”

To which he answered, “God will never give you more than you can handle.”

I pondered upon that thought for a long time and came to a solution. I like to compare and I admit, it’s a terrible disease that can kill you slowly. If you don’t choose to count your blessings but choose to compare and count other people’s blessings, you will not survive.

I’m still pretty bad at it but I’m trying. Back to the point – sometimes, I’m really jealous of friends that have it all good. Everything is settled for them, all they have to do is just say yes or no and choose to follow or not. Or people who don’t have to try hard to get what they want. Basically, I’m just jealous.

Often, I would question God, “Why?” when it comes to hard times. I would always wonder why would God put me in such a difficult position? Why can’t He give me an easy way out? Why can’t He just make my life easier? Why are there so many obstacles in order to find the correct route? Why do others have it better? They don’t even have to try hard in order to succeed.

Then I realized. God will never give you more than you can handle. I know those people. I know how weak they are. I’m not implying that I’m like super strong or whatsoever but I know that I am stronger than them – emotionally.

So thank you God, for all those difficult paths, for all those failed works, for all those wrong people in my life, for all those times I was lost, for all the nights I felt like I was going to give up but I didn’t…

I truly feel stronger than the person I was 2 years ago.

I hope I do not disappoint my parents. I trust in You that everything I choose to do now leads to a better future not only for myself, but for the loved ones around me.
