Drawing of marmite jar in my moleskine sketchbook

Marmite jar

Marmite was one of my favourite childhood spreads. It’s so good on toast and with twigglets. Don’t you just love it?

Sketch of the day no 1201 in my moleskine sketchbook is of a jar of Marmite. Yummy 😁

Bird’s custard powder

One of the first things I was taught to make in home economics class was custard from scratch, but who makes custard from scratch nowadays.

Maybe I should start because I do love my custard, with everything.

Sketch of the day no 1200 in my moleskine sketchbook is of a retro tin of Bird’s custard powder.

Happy Chap Goh Mei. Last day of Chinese new year.

Chinese New year with lion troupe

Happy Chap Goh Mei. Today is the 15th and final day of Chinese new year celebrations. It falls on the snow moon and this auspicious day is also our Chinese Valentine’s day.

Today was such a joyful day chasing lions and dragons with Chelsia Ng 🤗

I’m so sad that the lunar new year celebrations have come to an end, but I do hope the year of the pig will be a whole year of celebrating happiness, success and love for us all.

And yes, we believe in magic and unicorns 🍊🌕💛🎑💚🙏

Watch the Chinese New Year performance here:

Chinese New year celebrating Jade Emperor’s birthday also known in Hokkien as Pai ti Kong.

This is the most important day for the Hokkiens during the lunar new year celebrations and it is one of my favourite festivals.

Traditionally a feast is laid out on the altar table for the Jade emperor to thank him for his protection and blessings. Offerings like gold paper are burnt to send to heaven and fireworks and firecrackers are set off at midnight.

Watch the video to see how we celebrate x

I’ve started meditation again to help me calm my mind and focus. I feel it working. I’m feeling the stillness coming back…

It’s been 3 weeks since my meditation course and I’m starting to feel more settled and grounded, something I haven’t felt in a long time.

Let’s see where this new journey will take my mind.

Does this spark joy?

I’m channeling flamingos today. I’ve been playing around on my computer and i think I’m gonna paint this one just because i love flamingos.
