My paintings, My happiness

I took some photos of my old paintings in my childhood home recently. These are paintings I did before 1993.
'
When I was painting these snake charmers, it didn't cross my mind that one day I will have a son who's so crazy about snake (he once said he wanted to rear snake as pet)
When I was painting this picture in 1992... it didn't cross my mind that many years later that's how my Indonesian maid would carry my young children.
When I was painting this picture in the late 80s, I didn't know that the yellow color market would be demolished & become a history of Jalan Abdullah.
I once thought I would become a fashion designer.
I am fortunate to have parents who encourage my hobby and willing to spend money framing up those paintings of mine.
I was even allowed to draw on the wall!

I thank my parents for giving me such a precious gift, and so much freedom to express myself through art!!!

THANK YOU EVERYONE!

I've not been painting for many years. However, a few months ago I started to learn art again. (The teacher comes to my house to teach my elder daughter and I on sunday mornings in our little outdoor garden. IT'S SO ENJOYABLE!!!). Guess what I learn! It's just very basic sketching... the fundamentals .

When I was young I painted alone. Now I have my daughter who shares my passion. Isn't it wonderful? (Who knows one day both mother & daughter can have an exhibition together... it'll be a dream comes true! Ha! Ha!

中央巴杀勾起我的回忆,拆除前某些下午会从办公室走去买菜,对面还有一些海味店,全都成了历史.

Wow, you paint really well! You can paint and play piano...I can't paint but I can play the piano :D

夫人,我真希望政府能多保留一點舊的建築物,那是很多人的集體回憶。

Hi Sunny Cookie, even though i can paint but I can't dance like you (you're the Line Dancing instructor). I'm sure you're very musical as you can dance and play piano :-)

You are such an artist my dear. And a good one too. I wonder if any of your kids have your talent.

I can draw too... but just the orang lidi la... hahaha....

Thanks, MaMaFaMi. My elder daughter loves to draw too, just like me. And "orang lidi" also can be very "artistic", hee...
