Therapeutic activities

I enjoyed art lessons in Secondary 1 and 2. However, when one is not a talented artist and with so many academic subjects to attend too, paints, colour pencils and calligraphy pen were stashed in the dark corners of the storeroom.

It was only in recent years that I have started to use my colour pencils or using Paint or Adobe Photoshop to create some cartoons for fun. 2 years ago, my friend, Sherry and I decided to made ourselves as the editorettes of our own magazine, penned down our ideas and invited our friends to contribute articles and their views. In Dec last year, we were happy to pass our 1st issue of our magazine, Lemonade (in CD) to our friends and received good reviews for our efforts. Of all the few drawings I did for the magazine, I like the one below best.

We are currently working on Issue 2 of Lemonade but taking our time due to the demands of our jobs and other commitments. However, we have managed to find time to express our thoughts in our blogs and blogging is becoming a habit. I enjoy sharing bits and pieces of my life on my blog. It is also like some kind of affirmation that I am growing and living a fulfilling life because the day I have nothing to write in my blog is a day where I feel nothing for life and things around me. I guess that is why I like to read other blogs because I see how they live their lives and sometimes what they do inspire me to be a better person or do something to add variety to my life.

Of course, nothing beats talking to my family about what make me happy and sad, playing with my hamsters. Sometimes, quietly alone, I could also find joy and peace in baking or whipping up some dish for myself in the kitchen or just relaxing and reading a good book.

I think you do a great job and I like that sketch too. I'm looking forward to seeing lemonade in print. I like to read and bake too on a nice relaxing quiet afternoon....but too bad few of those have come my way so far! ;p
