Phuket Trip 2014

Compiled the video in the HTC One phone, it makes life so much easier to do videos! Only thing I'm not quite sure would be extending the length of the video. I shall slowly explore my way there.

It has been quite awhile since we traveled, the last trip was New Zealand that's like 6 months ago! At least I get to have a mini trip before Baby Kel comes out and joins the family.

And we had someone waiting for us at the airport! :) Look at Happy Pete's face!

Attempt to take welfies with selfie stick.. =D

And this is the lovely place that we hibernated for 3 days.

The pool that we swim everyday, soaking in while looking at the sea view..

The hotel next door, I like mine, its much nicer.

We took a walk down to the beach and found these!

Most of the time we are just slacking...

Thank God for this trip to have a little getaway from work and just relax, draw, eat, swim. Can't wait to go on a trip again!

I have been neglecting this space again. Well the only excuse I can give this time is "no time" again. Well what's new. Well, this space is supposed to inspire myself to create more things, to do more things with design. So I want to share with you some of the Instagram accounts that I've following and stalking lately. Good things are meant to share:

The sky is really on our side that day, it was sooooo hot! At least there's no rain!!!

Thank God for an opportunity like this!

All the photos were captured by my HTC one phone and not edited.

So this year I'm 26, hence 26 things I would want to do by my next birthday. There's some I've completed but I just want to put a complete list, so by next year April 2015 I can review my accomplishment with joy or be sad that I didn't put in effort.

[DIY] Art prints

Haven't been free to do any heavy duty DIY stuff this few weeks/months. Been pretty drained out. I've been given some 3M Expression tape sometime back to play with. So I thought this would be good for this who want to give their walls a little colour without having to stick the tapes on the wall.

Things that you would need:
  • Photoframe (I got this from IKEA)
  • Expression tapes
  • Some A4 paper
  • Scissors
They have quite a lot of colours for the tapes, I picked the solid colours for this DIY.

Step 1:
Cut the tape into small pieces, have about 5 for each colour. Prepare them first, so later when you stick you don't have to cut much.

Step 2:
Once you are done cutting, you can start sticking them on the A4 paper, feel free to anyhow stick, it will look arty at the end.

When you are about to be done, you can decide if you want to cut more to make them more cluttered.

Step 3:
Prepare your photo frame, when you are done with your artwork, frame it up!

And you are done! This took me about 10-15 mins. So you can have fun playing!

All photos are taken with #htcone.
