Cosmo/ Water colour inspired designs.

Amazing.. LOVINGGGG THIS. Want.






Waiting...

I'm surviving without a mobile phone. I'm going out today,
and I am in desperate need to call you, girl. Where you at?
Sigh, oh well, I shall take advantage of my vanity, while I wait.
Nah jokes, im not vain, not vain at all . . .

Picking myself up #determined

One day, I'll draw/paint like this.

I've been so caught up with missing a lot of my life before I moved here, to Canada, a month ago. And it's complicated, I cant go to Uni here quite yet, I'm not authorised to work, or drive yet. Public transport is a hassle to access. And to be honest, I've only managed to make a couple genuine friends.. although I'm grateful everyone is nice.
I realised I need to find myself without all that, without school, University-life, Work, Chillouts, the exploration, cafe's, city, friends, constant going out. To find myself without my life as it was before I moved here, without the continuous reminiscing and nostalgia. I need to pick myself up. And God has truly helped me realise that.

It started today. I used to draw a lot, and today I did a rough experiment to see if i was still capable and happy in drawing. And gladly I can say, "here's to finding a former love"



Now, I want a sewing machine. lol. But I'll wait til I think I'm deserving of one :P

"Strangest pleasure"


"I find the strangest pleasure, just sitting on these city rooftops
and seeing the lights that go on for miles" (8)









Rooftop view from my former University,
ATC building, Swinburne University of Tech,
Melbourne, Australia.

I'd come up here when I'd have a hopeless functioning mind during studying,
when I'd be stressing out, or to escape from reality,

To be honest, I miss going to Uni.
Being in a different country now, I'm going to have to wait a little while,
to be able to go to Uni again, and I most probably will have to start over.
But I'm glad I had that one semester to experience the
independence, hard work, social side and finding my place.
I found that Psychology wasnt really my thing, as much as it intrigued my learning.


Mayday Parade, and Rooftops.

"Suit Up" - Barney Stinson.




Mmm. Appealing men.

This is attractive. Guys that know how to dress.
Sophisticated. Appealing. Agh makes me weak.

Seems like the type that could mess up my mind,
leaving me breathless.
Yet, at the same time, they're mysterious,
there's a side to them that they dont show,
unless you eff their mind up too,
leaving them feeling weak and going crazy about you.
Imagination is Commodious. :P





CAUGHT.

One of my favourite guys in the whole universe. He knows me well, truly well. And I hope he knows that he's an important person in my life.
LOL nigga, is just gonna keep on missing. sigh.
I miss you too!

"They say home is where the heart is"

"And we keep driving round in circles, afraid to call this place our own." - been there.. and its not always a good situation to be in.



Ingrid Michaelson,
I just found her, and i'm really digging her voice. She brought "A Fine Frenzy" back to me. :)

Parents asleep, so my brothers and I decide to roam around Vancouver,
grab some Starbucks and chill in the carpark.

2 crazy neighbours doing a 2 second fist pump.

Keep it real guys <3

Goodnight.

Refrigerating me, Oh Canada.

Early birds, HELLOOO.
Unfortunately, it seems like we're gonna have to skip Autumn altogether. Feels like Winter already.
Im dreading the cold. This morning, after church, my legs felt like they had icicles just pricking at them, making them numb. Hands, palms, turn to white. I have noticed though, that my skin has gone slightly lighter. LOL.











Spiritual healing this morning. Last night, my head was in a mess.
But falling into the dark just has to happen sometimes.


"I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe"
-Psalm 61: 2-3 NIV


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understnding;
in all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight"
- Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

"Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete"
- John 16:24 NIV

Autumn dulls.

I wont stand for blacks and browns. There's gotta be colour.
The darker, paler, heavier shades of mother nature,
red, orange, yellow, green, purple.

One Southern Hemisphere Autumn day.

Reminiscing on Autumn in Melbourne, Australia 2011.
Great company, perfect weather, captured memories.
