Back from the hols and back to work

Well, it has been a very pleasant week last week. Given a few days to work on my own personal projects as well as finally having the time to clean up my study area at home. It looks wonderful now without all the clutter and rubbish about the palce. But I know deep within me that the cleanliness won't last for very much longer.
Anyways, I took a few days off from work as well to head up north to Penang to visit the my relatives there. My aunt and cousin from the UK are also having their holiday there so it's a very ideallic moment to have a big reunion there n then. What I enjoyed most about these road trips is that you get to see some spectecualr scenery along the way once you hit the mountain range. These shots were taken while I was still in the car,windows down and me sticking my hand out to shoot those images. So happy that some turned out well.

A gem find. The Chowrasta Bazaar near Komtar still retains some of their old book stalls there. Check out the variety of books there. Tho' honestly I still prefer the old bookstores in KL, but for this place, if you look hard enough, you might find a few really good books cluttered around here and there,and if you haggle enough, you can actually get the book for dirt cheap. I bought about 6 books there and almost all of them came up to about RM2 each.
My rendition of my grandunc,Chek Kong,during one morning at the breakfast table. That's him there getting aquainted with his great grandson,Adam, on our first day there.

Well, the following week and back to work. But it wasn't at all dull. On the contrary,it feels so good to be back on the routine and getting more work done. One fine suprise came from Lee-Ling, my director's daughter, again when she made her father run the usual art trade errand and gave me 2 lovely artworks with a gift attached to it. That's it on my desk.

That's supposedly inspired from the same panel cartoon I did for her previously.
First panel : She's having a squabble with her younger sister when her dad,Steve,appeared.
Second panel : Steve (she can't draw guys so he appears as a lady on the left hand side) hands her the drawing I did for her.
Third panel : She loves it.

I love this piece she did below. I had to count the four leaf clovers in the artwork before I'm allowed to open the gift attached at the back of it in a sealed brown envelope.

This is it. A colorful notepad I can hang. Here's where it ended up.

Thank you so much,Lee-Ling! :)

Muid's Birthday Bash Last Saturday at Galleriizu at Wisma UOA,Near KLCC

Love the funkiness of the entire setting and it was so cool to be able to view all of those wonderful artworks and get inspired while enjoying the party and mingling.
This is my favourite piece among the others. Would love to be able to have my own exhibition one fine day.

That's the birthday boy,Muid, entertaining his guest with a dance number midway during the party. Missed it? Here's a vid clip of it in YouTube :P

And more images of the party here in his site -

Cheers everyone!
