I’ve never tried this before but have often wanted to try a very loose form of sketching. With my watercolours I loose painted the colours and shapes of what I saw and then added the kind of took my time in adding the details. I was too busy enjoying the funky tunes at my favourite […]
Sometimes in the mornings we walk down to the beach front to get a cheap brekky. I have to admit I regretted ordering fried eggs on toast with bacon , which is why I think I much prefered sketching my fresh juice. Do you have a favourite juice?
Beginning my Foodie Friday series with Vietnamese brunch with my parents was the best is to start. I think we ate everything on the table that day. Update: Unfortunately this restaurant on William Street in Northbridge is now permanently closed and a Japanese restaurant is now in it’s place, which we are yet to try.
Being Chinese, I’m often out eating and trying out new places to eat. It seems to be a past time for Asians. In my case I’m frequently eating out with my elderly, young at heart and happy go lucky parents. Today’s lunch date with mum at dad was at Viet Hoa in Northbridge. You can […]

Mother’s Day is was only a few days away and hubby needed to pop out to do a “thing”, so I requested to go for a ride. Although hubby had not mentioned that the “thing” was Mother’s Day related. I felt an overwhelming desire to have Devonshire tea but where? I had no idea where […]
On 25th April it was ANZAC Day. For the past three years we have been attending dawn service to pay our respects to those service men and women who serve and have served our country, who gave their lives for the freedom and peace we enjoy today. Taking the time to be silent and truly […]
In a recent klass at Sketchbook Skool we were taught by Prashant Miranda , he sketched and painted a very beautiful yet simple beachscape. Given that I have a coastal lifestyle now, I decided to do the same, keeping my sketch very simple. I only wished that I did this on watercolour paper. My sketchbook paper […]
