My Philosophy:


I believe in:

Fun expressing your voice and creativity, exploring, experimenting, 
experiencing, playing, enjoying, creating, designing, making stories, 
taking on challenges, being positive, problem solving, being silly, 
doodling, laughing at yourself, doing things because you want to, 
cherishing & living in the moment and...adventuuuring!

Progress = learning, working towards mastery at your craft, reflecting, 
improving, surrounding yourself with supportive, honest and likeminded friends, 
taking responsibility for your choices, doing what you believe in, trying things, 
celebrating the journey, evolving as a better person and friend, staying open minded,
embracing your strengths and weaknesses, not obsess with results or destination,
not worry about perfection, working at your goals/possibilities and getting it done to the best to your ability,
and being respectful of yourself & taking care of yourself.

Grit = having determination & independence, getting the work done, 
striving for opportunities, having the courage & confidence in yourself, 
learning and owning up from mistakes, expecting the unexpected, 
facing your fears, rejections, constraints, obstacles and disappointments with resilience, 
being fierce, consistent and reliable through thick and thin, push comfort zones, 
acting with integrity to yourself & others, belief in yourself,
allow yourself to process your feelings then pick yourself up again, 
and pushing through towards your ambitious dreams!

Added Love and Kindness with people in my life & with myself as well! <3 I'll be lifelong learning to get better at these 5 things.

Main Blog's mission: All the Art and Reflection!

To document and reflect on my art adventuuures!

Full version of my art posts, their associated essay rambles and any bonus art studies reside here. Social media doesn't cut it sometimes!

This blog used to be a comprehensive blog centred on personal reflective essays and topics since 2013 till early 2018. I don't think I can keep up with the time consuming format anymore with new things to say so I felt it was time for a much needed change.

Now I'm better off reflecting within each art update instead. Peeps won't have to read 1 to 2 month's worth of essays anymore as I'm breaking them up now! Yay! (:


Essentially my mission remains the same. 
I blog for my own sake but I hope this blog offers insight into the ups and downs, mundane and hectic times, surprises and frustrations, mistakes and discoveries of my art & personal learning journey and that people find hope, belief and drive within themselves to follow their own evolving dreams and goals with no regrets.

I really, really enjoy blogging since I get to ramble my feelings and thoughts without any expectations! It's rare but getting constructive feedback and meeting new like-minded friends would be a welcome bonus!

I write as if I was talking to a good friend or to myself, rather than loads of people or the internet public. 
I am the same in person; I prefer to engage one person at a time. The reality is that I'm writing to myself and people don't actually interact with me about this blog :') There have been a few people who tell me they read it like ninjas? I don't know! I forget afterwards haha ;)

Digressing. Each time I discover someone I know actually reading it or even respectfully interacting with me about my blog - it's always a sweet surprise, encouraging and quite heartwarming. In person, I would be stunned and awkward but incredibly grateful!

Thanks for looking at my little blog, you. (:





Socially Quiet and Pretty Cool about it!

Always the curious learner, I'm socially a quiet, solitary and introverted hermit by nature while I'm the lurking introspective Miss Type-a-lot online.

Whether it be online or in person, I enjoy connecting on a deeper level with people on an individual basis! 

I fare much better at low key, quieter, planned social situations so I can better build upon and warm up to people. Manage my social stimulation quota too. Arguably I'm a turtle; you can't force or rush these things. ;)
