Today would be the first day of the 5 days silkscreen workshop organized by Kung Yu. A handful of us attended the workshop; Me, Pei Ying, Kevin and Wei Houng, reason being most of the other members were back in their hometown.
We started out by preparing the stencils with the photo emulsion, which took longer than expected, we had to wait for the next day before exposing it to the light bulb for our design.
While waiting for the emulsion to dry, each of us made a simple design that would be screen printed on to some fabrics that would later be sewed into small little bags.
After that, we went down to KL, Kenanga Wholesale City to buy materials for our recycle bag and t-shirt that would be screen printed. The building was packed and it had 8 floors of textiles products! After surveying the building, we went to KAMDAR for additional materials. Got to know all kinds of arts and crafts materials that Kung Yu and Pei Ying explained along the way.
We reached UTAR around 5pm, after bidding farewell to Kung Yu and Wei Houng, we went to Publika's food court 'EAT' for dinner. Watched a movie that was about a troop of scouts making their 100km expedition for the King Scout title, not the most interesting film, but it has its amusing moments. Photos to wrap out today's trip! =D

Group photo! I was sitting on the smallest whale chair despite being the biggest size... and also accidentally blurring myself with the f3.5 aperture ='(
Joined a group of people for a pool party on the 31st of August, and I went as the photographer for the day, quite the experience I'd say. First time taking my D90 into the pool, all of them were like so worried I'd drop my camera into the water haha.
Catching their enjoyable moments were really great, not the prettiest sight, but it sure brings a smile to a person's face. Got complimented for the photos I took, but the truth is I rely much on Photoshop to enhance it.
Still kinda bad at catching it raw.
Some pics from that day, enjoy!
PS: Mr T is awesome as ever.
Went to Kuantan for a 2 day trip from 17th May to 18th May. Was rather tiring as I drove to and fro, and most of our activities were eating haha. Had great food over there, especially the desert called Leng Chee Kang, one of the best I've tasted so far.
Special thanks to Mr. Khoo and also Mr. Hong for the hospitality. They took us everywhere for food haha, never had a moment that we were starving.
Being near the ocean, the scenery was breath taking. First time encountering such sunrise, and lucky me I got my brand new Samsung Galaxy SII! So I took it out and snap a few photos before leaving the second day.

Been a while since I updated this blog. Was rather busy with school concerts and finals I guess. Anyway, I went to Singapore with my university course mates (with a little push from my lecturer) to visit the art exhibitions. Was skeptical at first, but it turned out great!
It turned out that 3 days and 2 nights was insufficient to do everything in Singapore. It was so tiring to rush around for the museums and exhibitions, we barely had time to rest and have a break, let alone shopping.
Everything was well, just a teeny-weeny bit of disappointment, that is I couldn't meet up with a friend that I really miss. To comfort myself, I manipulated a photo that I took and put his name on it. XD It was a sticker from Singapore Arts Museum (S.A.M) showing " I am made for SAM". Haha here's what happened to it. =P
I am made for Chris
This Singapore trip was definitely worth it, we spent very little but got heap loads of experience and insights. Will be planning for other exhibitions with the same gang in the future I hope. Next stop Thailand!
Best Jenga ever
