Peacock ATC


Working on an ATC request,
using two of my earliest stamps.

The peacock design is derived from Javanese batik motifs.
It was a good practice.

Experimental


Still depending on Microsoft Publisher,
Photoscape and a little CorelDraw,
to create my digital artwork.

Bak kata pepatah; Tiada rotan akar pun berguna.

Prints?

I was trying to come up with new stamp design last night
but I ended up experimenting with this.

I like simple artwork with quotes,
framed and hanged on the wall.


Hm, maybe I should try to produce some prints.

What Works Well

Ting!!!

WHAT WORKS WELL FOR YOU,
DON'T NECESSARILY WORK WELL FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

WHAT WORKS WELL FOR OTHER PEOPLE,
DON'T NECESSARILY WORK WELL FOR YOU.

Site Visit

I went to a site visit this morning.
I was kinda happy to be at that place again because 5 years ago,
I was there almost everyday when it's still under construction.

When it's still empty, dusty, muddy, noisy, dirty
and full of hazards.

Flashing back how I've seen all the hardships to build the place,
especially how hard I've seen my husband and our ex-employees worked there,
when we sacrificed everything to make an honest living,
while some people refuse to pay for what we've done,
I am almost tearful.

A Sun Day with Less Sun

We have scattered puffs of cumulus in our sunrise shot today!

By noon, the sky is almost completely covered with thick puffy clouds. We might have rain later in the evening <---hehe, unofficial weather forecast. I hope I don't bore you with my morning shots!

I'm still thinking whether to post my morning shots in everyday post like this,
or just update once a week or once a month.

Hm..maybe once week would be okay, right?

What do you think?

Update:

Yeah!! It's 2pm and it's rainning now! Hujan panas.

Disapproval

Ting!

SOMETIMES YOUR FAMILY DISAPPROVE YOUR AMBITION.
ONLY AFTER OTHER PEOPLE RECOGNIZE IT, THEN THEY WILL RECOGNIZE WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND YOU WILL GET 100% SUPPORT FROM THEM.

Perfect

Today's shots.



And this is the shot from my first three mornings.


I was just starting to capture the morning sky for three days and looking at the photos make me realized...

Ting!

NO TWO DAYS CAST THE SAME SKY. IT MATTERS NOT WHETHER YOU SEE IT FROM THE SAME SPOT EVERY DAY.

God, thank you very much. The world is just PERFECT!!!

Extending the Inspiration

I love to jot down quotes, here's a couple from yesterday's program;

"As an entrepreneur, we must never get tired and stop. As a woman it's difficult, sometimes "mummy", sometimes "darling" ~ but we must be strong.
- Dayang Khatijah Datu Bachtiyal, manager and founder of Khaleeda Food Products.



"Ibarat nelayan, tidak akan ada masalah selagi kita hanya melihat ikan yang banyak dan bukan ombak besar"

- One of the successful entrepreneur in Oil & Gas related business.

I enjoyed yesterday's program a lot, but trying hard not to Zzzz during the evening sessions.

Inspired



There's no Photoshop, I just play with the camera settings and
increase the contrast a bit in Photoscape.


Just like sunset,
the color of the morning sky changes very quick.

Maybe I should do this
as frequent as can be.
Stop taking photos from my balcony and
go out very early in the morning,
to capture the morning sky
from different places.

:)

Today I'm attending an entrepreneurship program
organized by the
Ministry of International Trade and Industry.
I got to utilize the lunch break efficiently as I still have some other work to do.
I hope time will permit!

Have a nice day everybody!
I hope the sunrise inspired you today!

Ting!!!

I'm adding another label for my posts,
dedicated to something I call~ Ting!

Sometimes a thought might just came to mind
like a ~Ting!

We tend to forget the Ting! that came to our mind easily.
I'm putting mine here,
hopefully it won't be forgotten easily
and other person can have a piece of it too :)

You may agree or disagree with my Ting!
It's just a Ting! anyway
:)


EVERYBODY HAS ONLY ONE LIFE,
AND ONLY ONE CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE
EACH AND EVERY SINGLE THING IN LIFE.
YOU MAY FOLLOW THE SAME ROUTE LIKE YESTERDAY,
THE ROAD MAY BE THE SAME,
BUT WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY MAY NOT.

Unsatisfied with the painting,
I discontinue and wash the paint off.

Now the yellow mouse is back
trying to sip a drink
from the can.
