Only Cause It's Christmas..

Say hi to Rafael, the most hyperactively adorable kid at VBS 2006.



God has a wicked sense of humour..
..and sometimes, that's what makes life all the more fun

Just got back from Youth Camp on Sunday - had a blast doing stupid things that grace always does (like convincing my sis and another friend to creep down 5 flights of open stairways at 5a.m. in the mist and rain in Fraser's Hill, under a brown blanket which renders your line of vision to the space between your two feet (think "lion dance" kinda under-blanket-ploodding), in order to totter down a hill, through a shed, up a drain and over some otherwise unidentifiable black objects in the darkness and cold, to break into the resort hall, climb through a window and rescue my beloved camera bag from spending the night alone in a quiet, lonely hall) *hee*...

O_o"

Been staring away at my comp screen since then finishing up some poster designs for "The Breakfast Club". Will make a post on more details of the show soon - for now, i've just sent out the last of the promo designs for printing and i'm a tad bit sick of looking at them *blek*

On a happy-happy-joy-joy note though, the postcards just came in today *yays!* (although pay hasn't yet *bleurgh*) It's kinda surreal to see your work in print.. they turned out a tad bit blue-er than i wanted them to but oh well. Gotta get my screen calibrated *argh*

Anyone knows how to calibrate LCD flat screen monitors? Or can they even be calibrated?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Speaking of Fraser's Hill and the cold there,
i had a sad, sorry revelation today..

I'll most prob get real fat when i go to Sydney next year

*sobs*


The cold weather just made me want to eat and eat and eat for no apparent reason other than the fact that i wanted to.. die la.

But since i'm on the subject of eating, going to continue posting a few shots from the Kid's VBS that i blogged about earlier. Shot these while they were eating *yum!*



Munch.. munch.. munch... growing boys need to eat :D


..So do girls..


I call this one "Happy Cakes". I loved them to bits!! This kid celebrated his birthday at the VBS and instead of getting him a cake to cut (which would have been messy and generally a fuss when you have masses of eager children to feed), she got these lil decorated cupcakes from CeliCakes in Hartamas instead!! They spelt out HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN HAN in bright colours with rows of other equally adorable cupcakes around the wordings. I thought it was a really really interesting idea! Just sing a song, blow the candles and grab a cup cake.. no knives, no mess and NO extra plates.. Besides how can you resist smiling around something that looks this happy?? *cheers*

wah, got happy bubbles, now got happy cakes!

Christmas jazz is a love and hate affair to me. It gives that warm fuzzy feeling but don't like how it makes me feel a tad sentimental/sad sometimes.
