Balik Kampung (Limited Edition)

Tonite's our flight back to Malaysia. We will depart from Bahrain via Dubai to KL, and will reach KLIA at 9:30 pm tomorrow. Our summer vacation is coming to a close soon; we have about 11 days to do stuff in M'sia, hopefully. On the other hand I'm grateful that my beloved hubby has about 40 days off until after Raya, and we can do the preparations for Raya together. Breaking fast together, cooking, cleaning, baking, solat terawih and do things that we seldom get to do together because of his shifts schedule.

This "Balik Kampung Limited Edition" means we have to speed up everything, going to various places at one go, shopping for the kids new clothes and books, buying food to bring back to KSA and going back to Alor Setar to visit my in-laws and relatives. I do hope I have a bit of a time to say hello to my schoolmates, Yong and Zue. The last time I was there, I only managed to see Zue as Yong was outstationed.

I always managed to pack things at the last minute. Our big luggages are sprawled on the carpet in the living room, all waiting to be zipped and locked. A few small items to be hand carried are still on the table. Oh my, oh my...I am always like Mr Bean, wait until it's time to go and panicked...hahaha!

Summer project

Stencil design for the dining room


Design for the area in between dining n living


Area in between


An attempt to sketch a potrait of the kids fails miserably


Van Gogh's my inspiration, I think.
This is what I have been doing all summer. Suddenly I was kinda inspired to play with paints, pastel chalks and stuff, hence the results. They are not fantastic but somehow I get enough satisfaction out of my handiwork. My next project would be to draw a watercolour painting for the living room wall. But first, let me get into the mood...
