i have always believed that process is more important than the final product/destination, as it is only through process that we learn, explore, experience and be surprise. i guess this is one of the reasons why i enjoyed this series of work so much. Look at those faces, such determination and full of fighting spirits! A few more days before the exhibition closes, make your way down soon!

i did major shoes cleaning and packing today. Spent about 3 hours and perspired like crazy. Hate the weather! Sorry i can’t stop complaining about the heat, it always make work harder by at least ten times. Anyway, below are all the shoes that still remains after the last major cleaning (i’ve given some away over the past few years).
There was a time when i spent too much on shoes. The most expensive pairs here are from Chloe and Marc by MJ which costed $690 and $650 respectively (if i remember correctly). Glad i’m out of that insane stage now.
i’ve stop wearing more than half of the lot here, but can’t bear to part with them as they are still in good condition. And i don’t think it’s a good idea to give away shoes that have been worn too many times.
All cleaned and packed :-)
i’m glad i have cut down (a lot) shoe shopping these two years. This post will continue to remind me that i have more than enough shoes to wear and i should really stop buying. So Jo, please stop me from buying shoes when in Shanghai... ok, maybe not more than two pairs :-p

After started taking pictures of my breaks, i have become a lot more interested in plates and cups, thus the reason for going to this exhibition. Although these are not the kind of tableware that i would use or have a chance to use, but it’s still nice looking at the prints.

My initial plan was to go for one more exhibition yesterday – MessyMsxi at Old School. But my camera was already low batt half way through when at The Arts House earlier. Will have to schedule it for next time but check it out soon if you can, runs till 15 April.
i wouldn’t deny of the fact that because the subject is of a familiar persona, it made the overall exhibition experience more interesting. Having said that, i do love the clean style and fresh colour of the illustration, nothing too sophisticated or pretentious, just genuine and sincere.
