I have an old Boogie Board (Probably the first generation) that has run out of battery. I love my boogie board simply because it writes like paper and it is paperless. It’s pressure sensitive so, it’s great for sketching as well. The boogie board is supposed to allow for about 3,000 erases. Now, that’s a lot. I’ve had mine for about 2 years until it finally ran out of juice. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve got a handy little wooden box that I like to keep all my watercolour paint tubes and brushes. It also contains a couple of acrylic blocks to act as a makeshift palette. For the longest time, it was a simple thing of just dumping everything in the box and hopefully nothing gets lost. I hated it.
So, today I decided to make a little organiser. I used corrugated plastic cardboard for this. And black works fine for me as it gives a clean finish. So I started off by measuring the internal dimensions of the box and cutting out about 3-4 pieces. Read the rest of this entry
Recently, I tasked myself to build a playard/baby cage for Livy. We’ve been using one we got at a baby fair for quite a while but Livy has just been getting stronger and taller that she’s now able to climb out of it quite easily. She’s not even 18months, so it’s a little worrying for us since she cannot understand dangers and articulate things well enough. I’ve searched all over and all the playards are at a max height of 60cm. I needed something that could really contain my kid.
So I decided to build one out of plc water pipes. Now, I’ve never used this stuff before but I figured…ehhh… what the hell…how hard could it be?? So I headed down to a hardware store and bought some supplies after I did some initial drawings and measurements. I wanted something that was about 80cm wide by 150cm long by 100 cm tall. And I wanted something that had a door because at 100cm high… it’s impossible even for me to climb in and out of it easily. Read the rest of this entry
This year is my nation’s 50th year of independence. So in light of it, I was thinking of chording up some of our national day songs I used to sing when I was a kid. I really don’t like the new songs. They seriously sound like shit. Anyways, one of my favourite songs was “Count on Me Singapore”. The original sounds a lot better than the Dick Lee version. Originally written and sung by Clement Chow. It is a timeless classic. And sometimes, some things should remain the way they are because they are already perfect. Read the rest of this entry
