Pottery: Earth series


All works produced at The Clay House, Melaka.






I guess I have more confidence in pottery now. :)
Still as a hobby, though.

"出走,是为了回家"


这句话,以前在杂志上看过。
那时年轻得很,不以为意。

很喜欢黄于洋在第90期的shopping design里的这篇文章"流浪与静止的艺术"。她提及的流浪人在外许久以后决定回家的事。很勇敢啊!

后来,我从四天的团体小旅行到个人的一个月出走,虽然也没有很长,但也体会到了"回家真好"
的感觉。尤其在外接触到各式各样的人事物后。

除了客套说法要増广见闻,多见识什么的,我自己也学会看开很多事物,争取并珍惜自由,价值观也逐渐改变了。再多一个目标吧:少抱怨,多行动。
会鼓励身边的人亲身试一试,多少都会体验到这个道理,然后更珍惜自己。

可能我离开的理由还没用完,所以我还是要继续出走,然后再说"回家真好"。

开店后



经营面包咖啡馆这种听起来浪漫,做起来费时费事的事情,真的要下手做过才懂其幸福和辛苦。目前开了半年的小店,才慢慢有比较稳定的客户源。当然,不是每天都有客人上门的。

一天待在店里大概有12小时,一个星期5天半。长时间在工作岗位里对我来说没有太大的困难,可能之前的设计师工作也差不多这样,习惯了。但当设计师的日子里工作时间比较自由兼不定时,和现在在店里得跟时间表工作,这个差异最大。反而想念着之前那自由自在的生活了。

我说过,我对自己做的选择不后悔,经历过了就是经验。开了店后发现自己比较适合在家工作,不过如果我没做过这件事,我就会一直向往一直幻想。

并没有要放弃的意思,只是找到了方向,有了期待和安心,虽然未来还是有很多的不确定。
两年吧!我还要去打工换宿,学农耕,学造烤窑,学持素,学零垃圾零杂物。
然后找来志同道合的朋友一起有些好玩的搞作。

先这样。

Bario, the Valley of the Wind

I got the chance to visit Bario together with Justlife Group staffs for their company trip.
It was a 4-day holiday well spent with nature, cats and friendly people.


The view from our homestay.
Awesome, right? 

The only market place in the town. 

I was fascinated with the mixed patterns on that auntie on the left. 

 Paddy field.

Stunning view in Pa'lungan.
It's the place where Justlife got the organic rice.

 The lighting and the cat below it.

 The huge kitchen where we had our meals done.

Cats. They are all so adorable.

 The organic pineapple farm.

Borneo view from the sky.
We took Maswing from Miri to Bario. It's an hour flight to reach.

Book: 打造梦想面包屋

新年前在网上看到有人卖这本二手书。
题目吸引到我,书的状况还不错,就买了。


很容易看的一本书,利用新春初一和初二扣掉吃喝玩乐的空档时间看完的。
很让人热血啊!
两位作者-面包师和建筑家充满热情和坚持一起把Boulangerie Jin这家面包店的新样貌完成了。而且现在还是人气高涨,是很多喜欢面包的人想朝圣的地方。(我也是!)

Tabiyo Shop, Seremban


Here's a little stationery shop in Seremban, Tabiyo Shop.
It's situated along a one-way busy road in the middle of the town, where you can easily reach the shop from KTM station and bus station.

You could just gaze at the busy street while enjoying the tranquility inside the shop. 

(Will post more photos once the film is processed)




 Calendar year 2017.
11 months of cats and 1 for dog.

How I spent my almost-3-hours there? 
Checking out all the oh-so-pretty items, reading the magazine collections of the owner while sipping filter coffee with cookie, writing notes to the new owner of the calendar (to post to a friend), and sketching.

I love the ambiance.
