Imagine spending all your time going up and down your best python friend.
If you’re feeling hot and bothered in sunny, scorching Singapore, take a gulp of fresh water from a tumbler, just like old times!
In the age before air-conditioning, people battled the heat for a long, long time – and the kendi was the water bottle of choice across Southeast Asia.
Kendi is a Malay word derived from the Indian Sanskirt kundika, meaning “water pot”.
To drink from it, hold the neck and pour the water out through the narrow spout. If you’re sharing, be careful to avoid touching your lips! No cups were needed, making this a must-have item for the trader on the go or the farmer in the field.
Elaborate animal forms were also available for the style-conscious, as were imported porcelain options from China (gold and silver embellishments if you desired).
View kendis and other colourful pieces at China Mania: The Global Passion for Porcelain, 800–1900, on now at the Asian Civilisations Museum until 14 December 2014.

Lao Tzu (via feellng) —

Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.

once you realize you can make playlists for your ocs and stories there’s no going back. music will never be the same. you can’t listen to those songs the same way again. once again ocs literally ruin your entire life
A watercolour practise of some HBD flats in Singapore. I was experimenting with colour palettes and using more bolder colours, yet working them both to still pull off a realistic colour scheme.
Colours used: Chartreuse, a warm blue, maroon, blue-green, yellow green, violet and some accent touches of scarlet.
This has been on hold since spring, and I’m glad I waited because my skill was enough now to do it justice.
Kokedama is a Japanese art form that satisfies my deep lust for plants, crafts, round things and hanging things. Instructions here.
