{ mooning over… } December 13, 2009


Recently in November, NASA announced that they discovered a lot of water on the moon. I’m over the moon about this piece of news, not only because we might finally be able to post astronauts there to study the planets and the galaxy that Earth is only a part of, but because it also feeds my cosmic imagination that there might actually be life on that natural satellite that we have been gazing upon for so many human years.


Inspired by the moon, and its mutating shapes, I present these 2 creations made from matt gold moon discs, smooth like pebbles that had been polished by the sea waves, and with graphical holes like those in cheese. (I recalled a childhood story that involves a moon made out of cheese. Or it is only me who had read a story like that?)


Look out for my “stars” series next year…:)



{ earth, water & flowers } April 22, 2009


This title bears a tad resemblance to “Earth, Wind & Fire” right? Ok, a tiny tad. More aptly, it’s this week’s upload on flower-themed creations with this month’s dedication to Eco-Chic.


Today is Earth Day! And what a beautiful reminder to do good to the place we share. To continue the thread on sharing, here’s a simple picture I took of a dainty little yellow flower by the roadside. I’m just hoping that wildflowers will not disappear or that flowers have shorter blooming cycles since winters are longer and spring is late to come. Don’t you think such simple, spontaneous beauty is inspiring and it would be truly disastrous to not find them anymore on the streets, growing by the corners, waiting to be discovered and admired?

Green Tip: I save water (and money!) at home using the water leftover from rice to water my flowers and plants every day. It’s really good for them as the water contains the “polished-off” nutrients from the rice and thus a natural fertilizer! Totally organic! You can also use used grounded coffee or tea leaves after your daily cuppa. And those who come to my little apartment thought, “Green fingers”. But the secret is out!


For today (April 22), don’t drive. Take public transport. Or do something “green” that you don’t usually do. Join the eco-movement! I’m sure, like me, you would like to admire these floral blessings. pling‘s little dedication…hope you like them!
