Gumball Madness

Fresh out of its protective gumball is our hero of the gaming world, Link from The Legend of Zelda! Here's a very well made animated version of our favourite hero from Hyrule. I had fun posing him amongst the moss growing in the backyard. Check out the latest version of him in GBA: The Legend of Zelda - the Minish Cap.

Series 2

Character 2 of a series of girls I'm currently doing. I do admit I'm still not very productive enough. Juggling work and doing this at the same time has been kinda tiring. But no complains... @_@

The Highest Tide

Miles O'Malley is a thirteen year old boy living in Puget Sound. He has the knowledge of the sea and its creatures like the back of his hand. By collecting marine specimens in exchange for cash Miles life was thrown into the spotlight one day when he discovered a giant squid. Instantly, he becomes a local celebrity with the media hot on his heels for his two cents worth of the phenomenon. Everyone seems to be interested all of a sudden of the wonders of the sea as well as anything mildly associated. As the ocean continues to churn out mysteries, Miles's once pyschic and elderly friend Florence predicts of more unexpected changes in the bay, like the highest tide in 50 years.

As Miles continued to try make sense of the sudden phenomenon, fears of Florence being sent to a home and his love for his teenage problematic babysitter Angie will go unanswered. Meanwhile, more problems surface as his parents are at the verge of divorce. This story of humour and obsession is definitely worth a read. This is a first novel by Jim Lynch.

Kittens For Adoption

It's been raining cats out there in my neighbourhood recently. Cat lovers out there, if you are interested in providing these lovely kittens with a loving home, or if you know someone who can provide one please do not hesitate to drop me an e-mail. They are estimated to be 2 weeks old ,domestic short hair cats. I'm not sure of their gender as they are a little hard to tell at the moment. 3 of them are tabby coloured, 1 black. Mummy cat is a lovely sugar coated character, loves to have company. Very tolerant and very suitable for a lap cat.. She loves you right back. Please help to spread the love..Thanks a bunch.

New Furniture

Been putting away the errand of getting a new table for far too long and finally mission is completed when I finally bothered to drag myself down to get one. It wasn't too hard, it was an instant decision and we were out of the shop in 40 minutes wheeling my spanking new furniture toward the taxi stand. Surprising how they never "looked" so heavy in the showroom until you had to drag it home. Off with the old, useless and awful hand-me-down cabinet and up with goes the new! Look who can't wait to try out......*Meow*

4th April 2006

After starting the week with the demise of a pet, life became the same old bleak and grey routine. All the anger that welled up during the period of it's illness suddenly didn't matter anymore. After all what matters is we gave our best although the outcome is right there staring into our faces and that we might not be appreciated to make him well. He's in a better place now for sure. Special thanks to everyone that helped during this period. The entire day after this was filled with frustration with everyone and everything and to make myself feel better, I made myself a little pet owl fashioned out of Kinder Brueno plastic gumball and recycled labels. It was a quick attempt and the result is this weird citrus looking plump owl I named Oliver. Stay tuned to a better version..
