- You don't treat yourself very often. You find that indulging doesn't jibe with your very disciplined life (I am not VERY disciplined)
- You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious (Yes, i agree)
- You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast (As long as I don't need to run or climb hills)
- You have a healthy relationship with caffeine. You're definitely not dependent on it (Yes, I can live without coffee)
- You are a child at heart, and you don't ever miss the opportunity to do something playful (Yes!)
- You are deep and thoughtful, but you are never withdrawn (True).
How about you?

My favourite plants - Orchids and Nepenthes (pitcher plants). One of the orchid (below, center) look like human, wearing big hat and yellow bow-tie. On its left is the famous Slipper Orchid. I had to position the camera underneath the flower (below, right) because the flower look like it has been turned upside-down (see above small pic, top left).

Flamingo - ATC (2.5 x3.5 inch)
We had our lunch at Anak Mami Restaurant last Sunday because my hubby had some work discussion with a Project Consultant. They don't need secretary to jot down the minutes (haha!) so I chose to sit in the car, cut a small plastic bottle in half, fill it with some water and begin coloring the "Flamingo". The drawing didn't turn out the way I wanted it to be but it's okay. The time is well-used, right?
I had to steal some time to color the "Frog" this morning. Instead of using blue to color the water, I use black, mixed with some green. I expected earlier that i would spend more time on froggy but the lotus leaves were more time consuming. I love this Frog (and would like to keep it for myself) but, nah... it's for swap. One more card to complete the "Nature" set!
I also want to apologize to Kak Emila, Rizal, Kak Ida, Debbie, Jiwasintetik, Megat and Cima for the delay of posting back the swapped Identity ATCs. Unfortunately, seems like we need to proceed without the cards from Pupu. I will try to get them mailed as soon as possible. Pupu, I feel so sorry if your cards really lost, but just in case they arrive late, I will mail them to the host of our next swap, okay?

I don't use foundation. If I need to use face powder, i'll go for two way face cake. Most of the time, I don't wear anything.
I only use them a week or two after I bought them, now I don't even know where I put them.
My Day Cream:
Hm...it's mosturizer with UV protection, right? I seldom use them, and (OMG!) I think it has been a year since the last time I put some on my face. No wonder I start noticing signs of pigmentation. Hm, maybe I'm not wasting money anyway, I don't buy beauty product regularly. They always end up expired rather than "finished".
My Essential Beauty Product:
Essential? Hm, perhaps facial cleanser. I use St. Ive's apricot. The only one that don't give me tight feeling. Ahaa..at last, I have a product which I can call "necessary". But, it takes me months to finish a tube. LOL.
My Favorite Makeup Product:
Eye shadow, blusher and lipstick. Usually, I just apply thin layer of lipstick eventhough the color is already nude or natural. Or, I just use lip balm. Psst...it's not unusual if u saw me as pale as a steamed chicken. Haha! This is a joke me and my sister use to say to each other when we're in secondary school.
For the mean time, I use Bodyshop Chymara, Moshcino and Georgie on Ice-Nutrimetics. I LOVE PERFUMES but I only buy when I need.
Short, and always short. I don't wear any polish and I don't like long nails. They collect dirt.
Pedicure? Never spend money on these.
Erm, seldom wear any lotion. Only when I feel my skin a bit dehydrated then I will remember to look for my lotion. Either Gamat Lotion from Smartnaco (it don't leave greasy feeling thats why I like it---futhermore, it's effective for skin itch, rash etc.), and the other one is Vitamin E lotion.
Three Beauty Products to bring on a deserted island:
1. High SPF Sun-block lotion 2. Deodorant. Who wants pretty lady with body odor? 3. Cold wax strips---In case i'll be deserted there for months, I afraid I'll grow moustache and wearing men's leg. Haha!
Women I admire for their beauty:
1. Eva Mendes 2. Julia Roberts 3. Tyra Banks
Women with the Best Sense of Style:
According to my taste 1.Jessica Alba 2. Scarlet Johansen 3. Eva Mendes
My Ultimate Dream:
To look younger than my age, eventhough I'm 50 (if I reach that age).
How Do I Define Womanhood:
Wiser. Knows better how to take care of herself and others.
My Favorite Fashion Publication:
Cleo, Eh!, Marie Claire
I want to tag Kak Emila, Kak Ida, Cima and Pupu.

So, back to Drawing Day. For those who still don't know about it. Drawing Day is a worldwide drawing event encouraging everyone to drop everything and draw for the sake of art. It's held on the first saturday of June each year. The aim is to create 1 million online drawings this day and boost online art communities. For those who want to participate, all you have to do is submit drawing to any of the art communities listed on the Drawing Day's website (please click on the picture to learn more).
Since I'm not aware that today is Drawing Day---I have no intention to make any drawing. Later in the evening, the rain was pouring down heavily. We went to visit mama at my sister-in-law's house but there was nobody at home. So while waiting in the car, I took out a piece of paper leftovers that I used to keep in my bag. I manage to doodle some background for the stamp image that made earlier.
When mama arrived, we made some pisang goreng. While having the nice cups of tea complemented with freshly made fried bananas, I continue making another doodle on a different piece of paper. Mama keep asking questions like, "what are you doing?", over and over again, everytime she paused chit-chatting with my hubby. I said, "Just doodling ma", then she start asking, "What are you drawing?" and "The thing that you're doing, what is it for?". Hm, I took time to answer her questions, cause it's an aimlessly drawing so I really don't know what I'm working on. "It's a view, ma. Of a dream. Fantasy. Abstract. I don't know. This is just some paper leftovers, so instead of throwing them away, maybe I can make some bookmarks".
I already sent my scanner to the office, so I can't post the doodles that I made today. Maybe tomorrow I'll use my camera to get some pictures and upload it on Flickr Drawing Day group. Good night and Happy Drawing Day 2008 everyone!!
Okay. Today is Wednesday, June 10. I was not in the office for a couple of days because I was in the hospital accompanying my hubby's aunt, Mak Mah. She supposed to undergo an operation to remove some suspected malignant cancer cell from her breast but since the hospital is having power supply problem, her operation had been cancelled. Same goes to other patients who supposed to go for operation on Monday and Tuesday. Mak Mah's operation had been rescheduled to 30th June. That's why I didn't manage to upload these doodle earlier.
This is the doodle which I did in the car. I plan to add some colors but I'm a bit tied up so no time for that. Otherwise, the update of this post will be delayed further. When my hubby said; "Peacock don't climb trees", I realized that I could have made a mistake! Before that, I thought it's a hornbill (without the horn?). Haha! Becauce the image is taken from a batik motifs, so I thought maybe from an artistic point of view--->the crown is the horn! In my Identity ATC---I made the peacock sit on tree too!
Look at this hornbill. What do you think?
This is the second doodle. I like it better in black and white--somehow I regret with the attempt to color it. It spoils the drawing. "The Fly" is a poem by William Blake".

So here they are; I put early submissions on top. Congratulations to Rizal and Debbie, their ATC's manage to reach me before deadline.
Rizal says, " i am nuts about black-and white style..just love using them.. i am most comfortable doing weird, conceptual buzy illos. :)"
Debbie says, "I chose to use the theme colours of my blog, which are dark pink and purple to represent myself. The bee symbolises my name, Debbie aka Day-Bee. Debbie is the short form of Deborah, even though in my IC, it's just Debbie. =) It is of Hebrew origin, which means "bee".The daisy and butterfly symbolise the girlish side of me. The glitter on some of the embellishments mean that I like some attention, sometimes. Notice that each ATC is different? That means that I like to different from others and it also means that I am fickle-minded".
Megat says, "Selepas semalaman berfikir2.Aku pilih tema Felis Catus ( Nama latin bagi-KUCING ). Ermmm, sebenarnya aku mmg suka kucing..."
Emila says, "They're simple yet suitable for 'Identity' theme as my forte is children's art".
