It started with an old saying.
You can't beat Wellington on a good day.
It truly is.
I am so grateful to be living in this beautiful coolest little capital in the world. Big shoutout to my husband.
I love watching the planes taking on and off. Yeah, I live near the airport. In fact, the airport is just around the corner in this small city 🤔 I love my southern suburbs.

Hello hello, after a couple of months of unexpected break, I'm back!
I suddenly got a new job opportunity that I'd been waiting for forever. So lately, I was busy taking care of the job takeover and junior training at my previous workplace while doing some newbie orientation at the new workplace. Everything's over. I'm officially starting a new journey, so excited!
So after abandoning my Instagram for a while, I'm back with another #wellingtonshopfront drawing!
Have I shared this story before?
Sometimes when I baked too many goodies at home, I ask E to share them with his coworker.
One day, we have too many banana muffins so then E shares them with one of his best buds at work. A few days later, we've got a home-baked Macaroons (in 3 different flavors) in return.
It was delish! But to think of comparing my blender muffin to a macaroon is a bit... 😂
I like making timeline, it shows you someone's life journey.
Everytime I've got a timeline project, I need to have a look on the whole story first then decided what's the best way to draw or symbolize each milestones while keeping in mind that everything need to flow together :)
This timeline belongs to one of my precious friend/ family. I really hope they like it 🥰
Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red.
Do you know that if we go back to our pre-historic existence, the color purple is a rare occurring color in nature, and as a result is often seen as having sacred meaning. It means Wisdom, Bravery, and Spirituality.
Variations of purple convey different meanings: Light purples are light-hearted, floral, and romantic. The dark shades are more intellectual and dignified.
Most young people view purple as a happy color. Remember Barney? No baggage. Older adults view the color through a broader perspective.
What do you think about purple? 💜
From different sources.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. As the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
Artwork for #earthday yesterday.
Trying out the new Sketchbook from @stillmanandbirn @hobbylandnz with my old @copic_official markers. Just as expected, the thick paper did its best to prevent bleeding but some parts that had more blending did bleed nevertheless. Good enough in my opinion...
I wasn't too happy about the darker green color of her hair but I run out of options. Maybe I should get more markers 🤣
@circatheatre for this week's challenge!
I love how symmetrical this building looks! I love symmetrical houses, it satisfies me just by looking at them.
Our neighbor recently told me they have an annual Christmas trip to the theatre. Hmm, I've never been there even once 😗
Happy Easter Monday, folks!
It's the last day of a long weekend here in New Zealand.
When I first moved to this country, I was amazed that Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays. So we'll be back to work tomorrow.
But, you know what? The only thing better than a long weekend is that it's followed by a short week 😜
This shop is literally just at the corner from my work. When the previous store closed and they did a renovation to prepare for a new store opening, I saw pink tiles. I wondered what would open here next, every time I walk past it on my way home.
Then one day, I saw a glimpse of the front window sticker. It's @duckislandicecream !!! Rejoice!
What's your favorite flavor?
My one is actually Fairy Bread 😂
Now that I think about it, I need a tub of it immediately.

For all those people with no green thumb out there, please remember, succulent is our friend 😇
But hey, even succulents need maintenance. I notice we need to keep trimming them otherwise they'll go wild and leggy(?), especially if they don't have enough sun...
Please can someone share some tips for healthy, stay-in-size succulents? 🤣
@havanabarwellington for this week's Challenge.
Unfortunately, me and E are not into drinks. Well, I do love and enjoy my drink, but it's not like I need to get it every week or so. So unfortunately, I almost got no knowledge to this city's hippest drink place or similar...
Hey, I suddenly feel like having a painkiller. Is it because we're at Havana? 🍹
How many weeks have I been doing this, again?
Any idea which storefront should I draw next week? 😅
