I made it... Yes i made it...

and this is one great way to start my week. I jumped with joy and couldn't believe it when i received an email this morning saying that i've been selected as the DT here

Thank you Dawn...
Thanks for making me part of your DT family
I love all the card sketches from ICS and can't wait to get started...

February is already here, this is month of love where we will be seeing lots of Roses, lots of Hearts, many of the Reds and Pinks and all those lovey dovey stuff because love is in the air. Here is one black and pink page i did for
Ed's Sketch Got Stamp Challenge


And this is my take...

I tried something new( my first attempt) but i think it doesn't turned out quite nice.
But the most important thing was that i tried...
I splattered some paint on the paper, can you see it?
It doesn't look nice right? maybe because while i was doing that i was
1) worried that i will destroy the paper
2) my hand was stiffed
3) I did not used paint brush, i used the tip of a sponge :(
But it's ok at least i tried and i will do it again :)

So, what's in store for you for February? It's a short month in the calendar, there will be holidays this month because of the Chinese New Year, and it will be a good to spend time with families and friends. I took some great photos over the weekend. Last Saturday was one of the Indian festivals here in Singapore. It's called Thaipusam where the Indians carried Kavadi for Lord Murugan. The Kavadis are very colorful some with gold plated and other are just with colouful ornaments. In order for the devotees to carry the Kavadi, they have to pierce their body. There are also certain rituals they have to obey and follow before being able to carry it. Here are some photos to share...for your viewing pleasure.

I think this is gold plated and it cost a lot...

A devotee with his colourful ornaments...
This is almost reaching to their final stop... About another 15 mins walk.

Thaipusam is a poccession where certains parts of the road will be closed for the devotees. They would need to walk certain miles before reaching the final destination (temple). That walk can last for hours. Usually the devotees are not alone, they have all the families and friends as supporters just like the picture above.
While i was busy taking pictures, it began to rain and i took this shot and i thought this was beautiful....


We went around a bit and decided to venture Fort Canning Park.
My first time there.lol

I played with my EOS D350 Canon and captured this....

This is one of those old shophouses somewhere along Jalan Besar.
I like the structure and i'm glad that they did not tear this down.
This is so nice, they will not built these kind of facade anymore here in Singapore.
Something to treasure....
