Moleskine AW18 and SS19 preview in Singapore

Moleskine preview AW18 in Singapore

I am deeply grateful and honoured to be invited and flown in for the Moleskine AW18 and SS19 Preview in Singapore last Thursday.

I have been illustrating in my moleskine sketchbook for over 3 years and I have a fairly large collection of sketchbooks which you would have seen if you have followed my daily sketch challenge.

I fell in love with Moleskine because I love the feel of the sketchbooks and the brand fits in perfectly with my lifestyle. I travel and draw, and Moleskine encourages me to be part of this nomadic creative community.

ABOUT THE BRAND

Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin.Today, the brand Moleskine encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our mobile identity. Indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times: they are intimately tied to the digital world.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

We are in the privileged position of making objects that, by their very nature, are not disposable and will never become obsolete. In fact, Moleskine objects are expressly designed to be kept and treasured. Attachment only grows over time because Moleskine objects are made to be filled with the owner’s thoughts and feelings.

Nonetheless, our objects are made using paper and other materials which, along with the manufacturing process, have an inevitable environmental impact. Moleskine is actively engaged in taking every precaution possible to help limit this impact:

Art exhibition by British artist Ben Henriques at Jonathan Cooper gallery in London.

Ben Henriques ‘Works’ 2018

I recently attended an Art exhibition by talented British artist Ben Henriques at Jonathan Cooper gallery in London and had a conversation with the artist. It is always interesting to meet and to discuss works with other artists. For that I am grateful. I have yet to learn so much about the art world and every opportunity I get is important to my personal growth as an artist.

Exhibition date: 19 APRIL – 5 MAY 2018

The exhibition, which includes over thirty works, will be the artist’s first solo show since 2014, and his first devoted purely to still life since 2012.

Robustly painted yet meditative in tone, Henriques’ paintings find beauty in the everyday objects that populate and document our lives. Under the painter’s eye root vegetables freshly harvested from the garden, soil still clinging to their roots, become a painterly symphony of colour and form, their outlines blurring into abstraction.

Elsewhere the artist’s tools, his oil paints and brushes, become the focus of his gaze, in a reflective work depicting the very materials with which its surface is constructed. Edges soften, forms dissolve, and colours sing. Non-narrative in tone, Henriques’ paintings nevertheless seek to express emotion, whether moments of stillness and calm, or an awareness of the passage of time and the fleeting nature of beauty.

Painted over the course of three years, this subtle yet confident body of work marks an important turning point in the artist’s development and style.

Penang: World’s best place to retire

http://penanglocal.com/2018/04/30/personalised-tour-by-relocatetopenang-com-offers-a-5-day-familiarisation-trip-to-those-thinking-of-relocating-to-unesco-heritage-island-of-penang-in-northern-malaysian-via-malaysia-my-second-home-mm2/

Who wants to live on an English speaking tropical island in S.E.Asia?
The dream is within reach and the reality is easier than you think.

Personalised tour by RelocatetoPenang.com offers a 5-day familiarisation trip to those thinking of relocating to UNESCO-heritage island of Penang in northern Malaysian via Malaysia-My-Second-Home (MM2H) program

25 April 2018, Penang, Malaysia – Two innovative entrepreneurs launch website portal, www.relocatetopenang.com to offer a unique and memorable experience for anyone thinking of relocating to the wonderful Malaysian UNESCO heritage island of Penang today.

Serena Tan and Lily Aziz have lived abroad and travelled the world yet choose Penang as their home base. A growing number of discerning global professional nomads have chosen to relocate to Penang island due to its prime location as a regional hub, its attractive weather, safe and friendly environment, ease of doing business, variety of foods and culture as well as affordability of property. Penang was after-all the Pearl of the Orient of yore attracting traders from around the world; the Chinese, Middle East, Dutch, British and more.

A special 5-day tour package can help a person decide if the island state is the perfect long-stay choice. “Experience Penang in 5 Days” is a personalised and immersive experience for one person, two people or a group. The package includes consultation and advice on real estate, legalities and a taste of the local food and culture.

“It is a 360 experience on local food, the community and culture, and offers a glimpse of life on the island,” says Cultural Experiences Coordinator, Lily Aziz. “Your experience begins with a personal pick-up from the airport where you will be whisked away to a five-star hotel. You will be exposed to an in-depth knowledge on finance, Malaysian immigration laws and guidelines, education availability if required, medical facilities as well as visits to selected properties where you will be able to assess the types of real estate that best suits your lifestyle and budget. You will be able to meet others who have relocated to Penang, through the MM2H programme, who will be able to share their experience with you”, she adds.

During the tour, travellers will also be immersed in Penang’s rich culture and heritage by a local guide with visits to the local markets and street food vendors amongst others. Each of the tours has so far been designed exclusively for those considering a change in their lives – the decision to relocate to Asia!

“We offer customised, well-researched and a comfortable local experience for those interested to relocate or retire in Penang. Our guests will gain insights into local real estate to legal matters to even where to find the best Crab Curry,” added Lily who emphasized that those who undertake the tour will leave with more answers than questions.

“Most of our clients, even after deciding on relocating or retiring in Penang, return to the island for months at a time, sometimes over a duration of several years to research on important matters such as buying an ideal property, children’s education, or getting the best medical care. Our combined experience has brought together the “Experience Penang in 5 Days” tour, where we can extend professional and unbiased advice to those wishing to relocate to Penang. We provide local knowledge and a vast network of contacts to our clients, ensuring a productive yet enjoyable time in Penang,” says Serena Tan, Director of Penang Property Angel, a registered real estate agency in Malaysia.

Penang, the second largest city in Malaysia, is home to the three main races of Malaysia – Malay, Chinese and Indian – as well as to a significant number of Eurasians, Thais and expatriates. It also has the highest GDP amongst all Malaysian states despite being the second smallest state in the country with a land area of 1,408km². The state is divided into two: Penang Island and Seberang Prai on the mainland, and enjoys a tropical rainforest climate that is mainly directed by the surrounding sea and prevailing wind system.

Georgetown, Penang’s capital, is a uniquely designed townscape architecturally and culturally that does not have an equivalent anywhere in the world. This uniqueness has earned and inscribed the capital a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The “Experience Penang in 5 Days” tour is the perfect place to start for anyone looking to relocate to Penang as all your questions will be answered during this time. The cost for the tour starts from RM10,000 (approximately USD$2,600, AUD$3,400 or GBP£1900) per person with a 20% discount offered for a couple. Group bookings between 3 – 7 people are welcomed.
