The Clay House, Melaka




Since I moved to Melaka last month, I have to miss my usual pottery session at A Touch of Clay in Segambut, KL.
But soon enough I found out The Clay House at Jonker Walk has classes.

So finally  I got my touch on the wheel again there!
I'm so happy~

Making pottery with this kind of ambiance: sunlight and afternoon breeze, these made a nice therapy.



I managed to pull 3 cups (or bowls?) during my 2-hour session.
I can't wait to go back to the trimming before they are sent to the oven.

Upcycle project for plant



The big C metal frame was from an event. We were about to discard it, but feel 'sayang' to do so.
I still put it in my balcony garden until one day I saw a tutorial of a  botanical project that sparked me the idea to reuse the metal frame.

So I got some gunny sack to wrap the bottom (I sewed it with thread), put in soil and it's done.
Then I cut some of my existing plants to grow in their new 'house'.

Hope it works well!

More pottery works



I spent the whole morning just to carve the pattern on this.
But the outcome pleased me. :) 

Another seascape set. 

The only work from the wheel this time. 

Shining green set.
I wish the glazing was a little bit thinner.
The small cup is sold.

Magazine: Odd One Out






A very charming local indie magazine, Odd One Out Magazine. Nicely designed layout and great articles, not forgetting all the photos were taken with analogue camera!

Picnic at Lake Gardens




Picnic with roti kopi salad. Everything's hand made or home made.
The weather in Malaysia is not so favourable for this activity, but we were blessed with good weather on that day (some drizzles but no harm), and a big tree to shade us! 

Being lucky~

做就对了





其实我也不懂哪儿来的自信和力量去做这件事。不少朋友替我担心,问有市场么,可以回本吗?地点好吗?这样走行吗?这两个星期见了很多人,回答了很多问题,说了很多故事,好像也在让我自己整理一下想法和有要赶快的、也有要慢慢来做的事。
谢谢各位的鼓励忧心热情冷水。今早醒来在厨房里弄早餐时想着,不管可能不可能,我就来捣乱这个小小市场吧!虽然我没有百分百的信心,不过如果我没有开始过,我会不甘愿咯~

文不对题了。我的早餐,顺便炫耀一下我在挪威古董市集买的杯子。嘿嘿~

Bric a brac in Oslo



Bric a brac, also known as antique market happens during weekend, and I visited 2 of them.
The one on Saturdays is near to Vigeland Park while Birkelunden one is on Sundays.
I found out about the markets from Visit Oslo page.


This is the one near to Vigeland Park.
I walked along Munthes gt. opposite the park entrance, then turned left at Tidemands gt and there they are at the next junction.

Inflight movies for 12 hours journey

(This is not a movie review)




What to do in a long distance flight? For me, movie, eat, sleep. And repeat. Once I got to my seat, I will always search for movie list first, as I hardly go to the cinema normally. 




华丽上班族 (Office)- 哇周润发陈奕讯张艾嘉汤唯天心 粒粒巨星。舞台剧场景,很美。我还是喜欢汤唯。The Departure, not a new movie, but a very good one. 



My palms sweat when I watched The Walk. Joseph's French accent is quite funny. 



Children of Iron, a very simple Japanese movie about a marriage that brings two families together, but the kids aren't happy with it. They decided to work together to make them divorce. I thought it's a comedy but it's actually a sad one.



Well, I don't really understand everything they said in The Big Short, but I like the way they presented some facts by having some stars randomly to tell you what's going on. 



Apart from these, I watched shows by Nobu, Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson. Yeah, food.

Mari Market 7

Same as previous Mari Market, Mari Market 7 was still held at Dewan Orang Ramai inside Sungai Buloh Leprosy Settlement.
This time we had more fun things such as guided tour and movie screening.

 Justlife Cafe stall was serving a variety of vegan cakes, cold drinks and braised tofu rice.

Kelip-kelip Waldorf School had a outdoor classroom for kids. Kids can participate in the class and it's also a change to show parents how Waldorf school works.
