That Saturday at Publika

Probably the first full body OOTD picture in my blog ever. 

Shades are vintage.

Shoes bracelet from charity sale there and then

Shoes from Summit

Was given the chance to attend a graffiti workshop
by Nuffnang at Publika 2 Saturdays ago. 

When I got there people were busy spraying away on canvases already. 

 I was quite amazed by how realistic this looks. 
I mean, it's still obviously a painting,
but that eye...

Honestly I preferred it without the white highlights. 

We were led into the Black Box,
which is in the building next to Red Bean Bag.

The 4 graffiti artists at the workshop.
From left to right:
Escape, Medea, Kartun & Anokayer

All of them started differently, but all of them shared a passion in fine arts.

Focus on the panoramic picture at the back.
Realistic graffiti art for a restaurant done by Medea, the guy speaking.

It's interesting to learn that:
1. DBKL legalized the graffiti paintings on the walls along Sg Klang, which is that wall in front of the Pasar Seni LRT station. 
They even have an annual graffiti event there. If you feel like venturing into the graffiti business, or you just want to showcase your art, or just want to try how it feels to spray on walls legally, find any empty spot on that wall, and you can express yourself freely. 

Be sure not to paint over other paintings though. Ethics people. 

(It would be best to go to Sg Klang area in a group as there are homeless ppl lingering and it could be dangerous.)

2. Don't be afraid to ask for permission to paint.
If you see an empty wall and would like to decorate it, just ask for permission from the owner of that wall, be it a shop or a house. You might not get paid, but hey, it's publicity. Who knows if you're really nice and the owner really appreciates your art, you'll get something else in return. =D

3. Don't be afraid to ask
If you want to learn about graffiti or venture into this branch of art, you can always ask the graffiti artists for help and guidance. Post questions on their Facebook page or join the community. 

Kartun creating his alter ego. Spray-ception?

The final look.

On the same day,
there was an Indie Youth Festival.

People performing their own work and some covers.

It was nice to just sit there and chill with black cat Iris
and chomping on the sandwiches from O'Brien's with a can of chilled coke,
listening to indie rock band Shh... Diam! cover "Leaving on a jet plane".

The weather was just fine. Not too hot and breezy.
Just sitting there and not doing anything is enjoyable enough.

I went to watch Life of Pi (finally) after that.
It was a good day.

Life is easily enjoyed when your weekdays suck.

It was Christmas?

You didn't get presents from Santa coz one reindeer was busy camwhoring. 

Gold and red eyeshadows for Christmas camwhore.

Simple Christmas this year.
Went to watch The Hobbit with Marilyn, Ken and his friend Shaun
at GSC MAXX in Time Square. 
I can't tell the difference. =X

But it was nice to hang out with a crazy bunch of funny folks that made me laugh so much today. 

Went to Bangsar with Yat later on just to have a cuppa at Antipodean. 

How nice the flowers they used  for decoration.

On every table. =D

Had another good laughing session there
when they tried to add "bulu" to all the coffee names. 
The most epic is "Long Black Bulu".

Went home after that and watched movies on my laptop.
So it's kind of a movie day la. 
Like every other day. 

But somehow,
it didn't feel like Christmas this year.
Probably because of the lack of Christmas songs on the radio.
It felt like a weekend
or just any other public holiday.
I was looking forward to Christmas,
and when it finally came,


Well I got 2 books as presents from other ppl,
and I bought a shitload of presents for myself     =X

which is better than last year,
when I didn't get presents at all. 

Hopefully new year's eve would be good,
and next Christmas would be great!!

But till then,
time to get back to reality. 
Work it is.

And work makes people feel old. 

How was your Christmas?
