Wow, it’s been a while since i wrote anything on this blog. Wish everyone who still reading this blog happy, healthy and all the best on anything that you do. Went back to home town kuching during last Chinese New Year. How time flies, it’s March now. Well during the stay, i manage to snap a few photos of lion dance dancing from shops to shops, how nostalgic seeing it especially from centuries old shop houses.

Here’s the painting i did on the wonderful atmosphere of celebration. The crowd is amazing and of cause the load drum and other musical instrument play its role.

Year of the Rabbit

This post might have come sooner especially when chinese all over the world is celebrating the year of the rabbit. Well better be late then never.

I did this painting before going for a long leave during the CNY (Chinese New Year), we have managed to frame it and now it’s hanging at my in-law house. Wish all my readers and blogger best of luck in this Rabbit year and as always healthy like an ox and be safe.

Apologized for the camera flash reflection, it’s coming from the frame mirror. Bad photography skill, got to learn some camera tricks from Ryan’s (http://asmalltowndad.wordpress.com/) daughter.
