Milestone

Since deciding to take a Sabbatical at the beginning of the year, I’ve been focusing on more R&D work at the studio. One of the projects that had me dedicating a lot of time is designing a series of Shigeru-Ban-inspired papertube furniture. After months of R&D work, I’ve finally completed a piece of functional furniture […]

Steady Progress

While having my breakfast and catching up on my daily news on Tuesday morning, a loud explosion was heard in the kitchen. Checked and found the glass lid of my months-old multifunctional electric pot completely shattered. The shocking part was that the appliance had been unplugged and left idling on top of the fridge for […]

A New Start

The first quarter of year 2014 seemed to have passed all too quickly, I seemed to have lost track of time.  This may have to do with the fact that I stopped the habit of writing down my daily to-do items since the start of the year.  Printed out some DIY daily to-do lists for […]

Creative Monday

With the chalkboard project completed on Sat., I decided to start a new project in the studio today.  Had been wanting to find a way to recycle paper for a long time, and I just thought of an idea today, I’m gonna code name the project Paper Sofa!  Bought some supplies and started the project […]

Receipts

Not too sure why I kept all the purchase receipts of 2012.  The sheer volume testifies the consumerist nature in our society.  I wonder how many of those receipts are from purchases of things I NEED rather than things I WANT. If I’m ever going to make resolutions this year, one of the items should […]

To-do Lists

For about 2 years now, I have the habit of writing down my daily to-dos on square pieces of paper and then crossing out the tasks as they get finished.  At the end of the year, I would have enough used paper to fold a geodesic “ball”.  I thought about going digital with my to-do […]

Papercraft

Still hasn’t received further info from the client about the adhoc support task, and I wasn’t really in the mood to start a new project, especially in this holiday season. I ended up spending more than a day doing nothing but folding papers!  Those are actually receipts from my purchases this year, not sure why […]

Daily To-Dos

Another day, another vector art, this is getting a bit addictive!  It’s probably about 2 years ago that I started this habit of writing down my daily to-do lists on square pieces of paper. Each morning I would start my day by listing down the things to be done that day, and one by one […]

Receipts

I have the habit of saving the receipts of my purchases.  Within a year or so, the collection is more than enough to create a huge stuffed origami ball!  The ball will serve as a self-reminder to move away from the materialistic lifestyle, and to only buy things that I need and not things that […]
