DHAL: May 24, 2014

Highlights:

  • I finished editing my video of our trip to Bali! My only problem now is not being to share it due to our insanely slow upload speeds. Hopefully soon!
  • Art date with Yoni! He finished painting THIS PIECE, based on The Persistence of Memory by Slavador Dali – pretty huh? I worked on the same piece I’ve been trying to complete for years now – Chaos of Cancer. Slowly getting there!

  • I made a no-bake cheesecake for the first time! Peanut butter cheesecake with Wunderbar bits and topped with chocolate ganache. It was alright, way too rich and wouldn’t make it like that again.

Lowlights:

  • Being woken up at 4:30am this morning by a freakish grating sound coming from my ceiling fan. I couldn’t tell what was causing the noise and too scared to try and fix it half asleep.
  • I ordered a dress a while ago, this one to be exact. From Ebay seller chsislady.

I finally had the chance to pick it up from the post office yesterday and opened it today, to find this mess.

Note the obvious asymmetrical neckline

And the poor construction of the bow

Not to mention the uneven and ugly seams all around the dress.

You bet I’m going to ask for a refund!

And finally, I don’t know if this should be a highlight or lowlight… but check out the ‘fancy’ garment bag the dress came in. I have no clue what it’s trying to say, do you?

Bird Gallery & Studio – Everyones Exhibition

Saturday, March 08, 2014 

(Note: Not the best quality photos, I apologise!)

Tonight, Yoni Shor was submitting one of his watercolour paintings, ‘Crashing Wave’ to Bird Gallery & Studio’s Everyones Exhibition.

You can click the link for more information but in summary: Everyones Exhibition is a 2 week exhibition held at Bean Cafe for local emerging artists to showcase and sell their artworks for free. No commissions are taken and there is even an opening night party for the artists and general public.

Of course, we had to stop by 🙂

Bean Cafe is located at Laneway 181 off George St

Lots of local talent, many of art pieces for sale. Would never have found this little gem without the help of friends, please drop by and check it out!

A beautiful present

As mentioned in my photo-of-the-day post earlier, Yoni was over today for an art date.

He completed this awesome painting in 1.5 hours and I received it as a gift, yay! After asking for so long, I’m happy to have one of his pieces to display in our home – thanks Yoni!

Finished product 😀

 

Procrastinating… as usual -_-‘

I have 2 exams this Saturday: Clinical Science and Ethics & Professional Practice.

Am I ready yet? No.

Will I be ready? Maybe!

But as usual, I’m taking many breaks to go on (what Michael likes to call) YouTube Adventures!

Join me for a smile as I procrastinate!

Photo #108: Quilling Wall Hanging

June 15, 2012

A section of my Yen Luong Quilling Wall Hanging

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of thin strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and the coil shaped, these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.
