Flowers, Lemonade and a 3

3 things. The number, flowers and a lemonade. That's all you need for afternoon tea.

Some kind of a bicycle

I'm sorry, folks. Things happen when I resist sleep. Here's some sort of bicycle because I just felt like drawing one but can't quite figure out how to draw it.

Random Colour Pencils

After seeing photo after photo of wonderful abstract colour pencils, finally I get to photograph mine. Really random stuff without any repositioning.

Happy 2016 Earth Day!

Have a great day, Earth. Don't get too stressed despite the fact that it's kinda hot and a little hazy here. Rest well and fight again tomorrow.

Fresh and Dry

It's not always fresh green nor is it all dried brown. Life's kinda like that, too. And did you know palm leaves are called fronds?

3 Fluffies

I have no idea what they are looking at but it was just a spur of the moment that I felt I needed to draw them. Drawn with Procreate Pocket because I can't afford the iPad version.

"Underwater World"

These are actually decorations of a Baskin Robbins ice-cream cake. I had way too much time waiting for the staff to find a box to put one of the larger ice-cream cakes in so I just went and snapped away some of the decorations on the cakes and this is one of 'em. In the end, I saved my money because the staff came back (after what felt like a few hours) about 20 minutes later to inform us that they were out of boxes. That's not business, is it?

Code Blue

very interest colour coding of a stack of pallets by the road side. I wonder who's got such... artistic tastes.

April's Cockroach

Saw a really big cockroach yesterday which prompted me to attempt to sketch one:

WhatsApp - Abused and Misused

Seriously, there's really nothing wrong with WhatsApp (or any messenger apps) but it's how society abuse it. Had I complained about this before? I can't remember. If I had this shows how much I really hate how some people use it.

A little background: WhatsApp had become THE messenger app of the century because of its popularity in the mobile world. I had tried others such as Line, Viber and WeChat and deleted all of them except WhatsApp because I can't stand all the notifications coming from everywhere.

Since smartphones conquered the world, people had resorted to WhatsApp instead of SMS because mobile data, though most of the time finite, is still perceived to be cheaper than charges per message (I guess to the point where telcos had started to offer unlimited calls and SMS in their packages). Wifi is generously available everywhere, too.

I can't begin to complain about how e-mails were abused but that was the past. The present invasion of mobile messengers is a much more pressing issue!!! Since my nature of work deals with a lot of projects simultaneously, co-workers and bosses have this love to create group chats for each project, sometimes even duplicates because they forgot they created one in the first place! Imagine my battery life wears out by noon just because of these chats!

As if calls way after work hours and weekends were not enough, messages about work just keep popping up in the notification center. Argh! And this prompted me to create the following parody of a real scenario. Poor victim of society tried to quit one of those above mentioned group chats but keep getting invited. Well, at least I had fun doing that.


ps. I never knew Apple's "Do Not Disturb" mode could come in so darn handy these days! At last, peace on earth once again, even if only for just a few hours. I am sane again.

It's all about the sloths

When I first saw this Zootopia trailer I couldn't help thinking how familiar things are with the government agencies (I'm sure this IS the intended message) albeit a little exaggerated. The movie's got awesomely 99% fresh the last time I checked Rotten Tomatoes.

The Mighty Frangipani

I've always wanted to take this photo every time I walk under a kemboja tree and finally I did it today.  One of these days I'll snap one with clear blue skies.
