FIVE THINGS

Isn’t it crazy how the distance one would go or the things one would do for the sake of love?

I’m getting hooked to acrylic painting since the first painting jam session  I had with my colleagues last year at Artisq. The concept revolves around a three hour session in which one is provided a canvas, paint and tools to paint anything they like. I never liked painting since I realised from my primary school days that I can never paint anything right, or realistic for that matter.

But during that art jam session, it dawned upon that I don’t have to paint Mona Lisa. Abstract works better for me (i.e. I spread the colours in any way I like and you don’t have to understand what the hell is going on).

I signed up for another session and this time, getting The Boyf along. The poor fellow still didn’t have a clue what to paint when we were seated down at our stations. I furrowed my brows at him, “See, I told you to start thinking about three weeks ago right?

He grinned sheepishly and finished his piece in just over an hour’s time. It was no masterpiece; there was the sand, sea and sky. Go figure. I was hoping we could bond over the activity. Though it didn’t go that well for him, I thought he was just the sweetest thing for accompanying me in the activities I enjoy (but maybe not so for him). I blame his sinus though; it made him a miserable man that day.

I suppose we could give it a try again, or make my turn to do something he likes. :)

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a series of hearts-themed paintings. Crazy much?

A Japanese partner recent visited Singapore and upon his suggestion, we visited Takumi for dinner. I was blown away by the price authenticity, presentation and most importantly, true freshness of the ingredients.

A beautiful Sunday evening spent chillaxing at Punggol Reservoir. Beer at a nearby restaurant included. 

My intense coffee and cake craving brought us back to Oriole Cafe at Jiak Chuan Road. But I shan’t tell you about the really handsome barista I met there because The Boyf will have a heart attack soon. ;)

Messing around with the camera apps and The Boyf didn’t notice my new shades… Gonna let it stay that way. :P

Labour Day was pretty much a bonus for us and glad it came with the launch of AVENGERS! I enthused about wanting to marry Chris Evans in that Captain America suit. The Boyf coolly replied he’ll marry Scarlett Jo without her suit. Guess that makes us even. ;)

xoxo
