Pet Portraits : Pebble the Golden Retriever

Golden retriever

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different ” C. S. Lewis
So tomorrow Malaysia will start opening up and allowing interstate travel and more businesses will be opening. It’s been a surreal 3 months where it felt like nothing changed for me at home, but in fact a lot has changed within me, a lot has changed around the country and changes are happening in our world. I hope our world will be a kinder place, a global home where we respect each other no matter the colour of our skin and background, a home where we embrace our natural environment and wildlife. 🐶

I love tortoises because they carry their home with them, they are so slow and steady and wins the race. Life is like that, it’s not a sprint but a marathon and we need to pace ourselves in order to get to our destination. Ive been stalking my friend’s pet and i think it deserves a drawing.

#Signup4my sign language video challenge for vulnerable communities in Malaysia

Please help to share and spread my message 🙏

It’s Covid-19 lockdown day 41. For 41 days i have been at home safely reflecting and continuing on with my blessed life, but I know there are millions of people who are not safe, who are hungry, who are vulnerable.

MALAYSIA’S MOST VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES ARE IN DIRE NEED.

Communities that were struggling before covid 19: orphans, elderly, differently abled (OKU), homeless, and refugees, among others – need vital support. Many of our homegrown NGOs that provide care and support to these communities have been overlooked during this challenging period.

Not only are the NGOs facing setbacks in donations and volunteers, managing daily operations has become an uphill battle. To add to the problem, a significant portion now needs to be allocated for additional sanitation, delivery, transportation, food stock as well as hospital visits and fees.

I don’t have many skills to help with the situation, but what I can do is to stay positive, create awareness and donate money.

I urge you to do the same.
1. Sign up as a challenger.  Recreate this video challenge in sign language: Hello Malaysia, we are here to help, don’t panic, kita jaga kita.

and or simply

2.donate. ⬇️

‘Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love’ ~ Rumi

It’s covid-19 lockdown day no 38/45 in Malaysia.
This week I’m dedicating flowers to the strong women in my life. I don’t thank my friends and family enough or tell them why they are important to me in my life, so I’m taking this opportunity during lockdown to remedy this 

Sketch of the day no 1348 in my moleskine sketchbook : white orchids for my beautiful and talented friend Abby

We became fast friends because i admire your independence, courage and strength right from the start.
I knew we would be great friends when we survived our adventure to Turkey. What an amazing trip!
Thank you for being my friend, art supporter and critic. I cherish our midnight chats about art and life when the world is sleeping. You inspire me to push my boundaries and step out of my comfort zone.  Love you Abby and i will be liquid fasting this ramadan because you asked me to ❤️

Stay home and stay safe xoxo

Finding life’s passion. A talk by Dr Jane Goodall in Malaysia.

Jane Goodall
Finding Life’s Passion. Jane Goodall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Finding life’s passion. An inspiring talk by my hero Dr Jane Goodall this morning in Kuala Lumpur.

Dr Jane Goodall has been my inspiration since I was young. When I was 20 years old, I went to Tanzania to volunteer as a research assistant because of her. I thought if she could do it, so can I!. I did but I didn’t last too long on the field. It takes determination and will power.

Dr Jane Goodall believes that we can make a positive change to our world regardless of who we are. She is known for her research on Chimpanzees in Tanzania.

In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is now Tanzania and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. But with her unyielding patience and characteristic optimism, she won the trust of these initially shy creatures, and she managed to open a window into their sometimes strange and often familiar-seeming lives. The public was fascinated and remains so to this day.

Today, Jane’s work revolves around inspiring action on behalf of endangered species, particularly chimpanzees, and encouraging people to do their part to make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment we all share.

I am in awe of her dedication and passion. What an incredible woman.

This talk was organised by Roots and shoots Malaysia.

If you are curious and want to know more:

  1. Jane Goodall Institute.

Our Mission The Jane Goodall Institute promotes understanding and protection of great apes and their habitat and builds on the legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall, our founder, to inspire individual action by young people of all ages to help animals, other people and to protect the world we all share.

2. Roots and Shoots

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute’s (JGI) global youth-led community action program, comprised of thousands of young people inspired by Dr. Jane Goodall to make the world a better place.

The program builds on the legacy and vision of Dr. Jane Goodall to place the power and resources for creating practical solutions to big challenges in the hands of the young people.
