Cooking: Simple Lunch

Rain always give me some kind of feeling, like, the feeling like a need to keep on going no matter what, like move forward.

Raining today, and most of days these days. Today both parents out. And I thought maybe they will have lunch outside, but not. So I try to figure out what I can cook that can taste good with rice.

I did it.

First I set to cook are rice. Because it’s take time. Second, I cooked green veggie, and yea.. I forgot it was pak choy or sawi hijau. For veggie, I usually cut to bite size. Little bit of oil, I put onion which I already cut, then the veggie, then added water just enough passed the amount of veggie, then added a bit of salt. Once the water which as its soup boiled, yes it’s done.

Third, I cooked an omelette with onion. I guess this one is famous, so let’s move to the last one, eggplant or brinjal. I cut one eggplant to 4, then cut to 3 or 4 pieces from each 4 cuts before. Added turmeric powder, then added lil bit of salt. Deep fried it all. Once done, let it set. For the sauce which not so sauce like, but it is what it is. I set with 2 red chillies, and 2 small chillies, in my language it called cili padi. Much spicy than red chillies. Set oil, put onion which I already cut, obviously. Added all chillies, then added a bit of water and let it turned thick. Then pour on the eggplant that already been fried.

And I have it with rice. It’s good to me, every time.

Okay, next time again on cooking section. It’s been a long time from last one.

For the first collection, which I inspired by beachy, nature, and whatever that close to water, OCEANSEA collection of bracelets was the first for collection that I decided to go with for my brand. For these bracelets, it’s simple with clear beads and colours, and whatever that have to do with beach, such as shells specially, I choose to go with it. And for the design in overall, it all adjustable, with thin of cord. Fit well for anyone who buy it.

Artwork: Small Works Before December And New Blog!

Quick in here, it’s midnight.

Currently I’m working on my A2 size artwork, but before November, I already decided to start on new small works, at least 3 pieces! These 3 will be an additional to few small works that I already have and these 3, along with few others, will be on sale without frame.

Sneak peek at it, a bit, because I have a hard time to just put out online if my work still in progress! Every time I just feel can’t put my work in progress online except if it it’s 100% done. Which not good as I make myself stuck between my own feeling to up it online, weird and strange, but I’ve been dealing with it for a long time. But there’s a thinking of mine which I decided “why not?”.

Snippet also here, this is the A2 in progress. This is new theme for this first one, as decided, I’ll do few more. Each knot will have different pattern. So far, this is the fastest one in progress, but I just have to do new small works as it’s really important.

And my let go sale artworks will come soon, which I’ll be put in here and all my social media platforms, links all on my pages now..!

Each post will have 3 to 4 artworks, it will be a let go price, so price are much cheaper. Please do, stay tuned and check them out once they’re all up.

Off now, and new blog already set, Arts Of People, my second blog for story of people, link on pages.

Some Thoughts: Life, Keep On

Few days no post here, this one just simple.

And yes, I have my reasons, of course.

Okay. Last June, I caught with covid. The true is, although its a flu like, it was its effect after the first week symptoms that bad.. Because of the effects, I’m not really active as I can’t be so, worried about my body response to the after symptoms of Omicron, I think its Omi.. Now, almost end of September, I think almost done with long covid, but I don’t know since long covid can be 3 to 6 months.. So, I’ll check my body time to time..

So just since last week, I had not enough sleep because of my sleep schedule. And this week is the tough one.. It’s family related. But I just have my flu, which I think it’s because of my allergy.. As family already checked out on me, it’s probably allergy one.

Nasal cavity feeling pain, warm. Snort frequently, and yes there’s mucus. So here’s the difference between Covid and flu allergy, there was no mucus, as in my case with Omi and it was just dry although I too, snorted, but coughs coming after the first week symptoms. It’s crazy since the effect after that hard to deal with.. And still, I’m not active like I used to..

Now with allergy flu.. I feel, kind of like, why….. But I just think, “it’s life whatever..”. And thinking it’s alright, I just have to do whatever I need to..

Which I have my medicine. I rest, doing my stuff. Eat with what I feel like I want. Focus on my family like that.. Just that..

So yea, I hope you, out there too, keep on going even lide getting tough, do your best and most importantly, give yourself time.

Some Thoughts: Stay Awake For?

For these past 3 days, I stay awake and sleep around morning. Reason?

I don’t know as I still want to fix my sleep schedule, but more likely it’s not going to be but I have my reasons, of course.

It’s because of how I’m not sleepy or can’t fall asleep easily, and as the result, couple days already I decided just, to cook for lunch in after dawn.

As simple as I learn about my body, I realize that, if I get up late, I missed cooking for lunch, and my parents had to go out to restaurant, which if for every day, it’s not good for them as their age these days, plus, expenses increase. Except if both of them have meetings or few groceries stuff to buy.

So for couple of days, I think if it’s just how I feel good, just alright to go with how my body is rather than to force my body sleep, it’s somehow stress me out. I don’t like that either. That’s when I think, why not just stay awake – after dawn, cook for lunch so there’s foods. Done early, I can go to bed as my eyes will start to get sleepy. It’s just like nurses who stay awake for night shift, of course they’ll get sleep at daylight.. If not, when? They need to sleep too.

So I think, it’s not wrong at all. True at night where our body feels good and energetic in the morning, but maybe some people just don’t. Maybe, me also? I still observe myself, my body time to time these days. It’s stressing sometimes, but that’s why I ended up just what I put in this post, I just go with how my body is.

Okay. That’s pumpkin’s flowers but I don’t think it will grow a pumpkin even..

Some Thoughts: Something Up!

This is just a quick one, I try!

My sleep schedule is not really good, obviously my brain active more at night and still trying to at least have my sleep at night.

So. Recently or, like, these past few weeks I’m working on something. Something that I love too, just like how I love doing my artworks. Which I decided to share with you guys in here, soon. And for this latest one too.

It’s, well.. Actually, something that I’ve been doing years. But stop for a long time. Like, my after secondary school era. So it was so long ago I stopped doing it. But these past years, which I can’t remember before or at early beginning of pandemic, or a year before pandemic hit…? I started doing it again! I was like, “I still get itttt”. Crazy to think about it, and so, I’ve been working on about it.

I’ll be sharing in here, time to time, as I said before, but I think I’ll be sharing my artwork things first of all, before this latest one. So….

Stay tuned!

Foods: Simple Fish Fillet Burger

For staying awake, I decided to cook something simple.

It’s also, my style of burger. Yes, burger. One of my favorite food. But my way my style, it’s a simple one.. Obviously.

I craving for fish fillet one, like 2 weeks already..? I don’t know why but it keeps coming to me so I decided like, “why not?”.

Usually, and this is my style. Our area is humid, very. More rain plus, lately and couple of years back we received more rain than usual. So. Hardly ever I want to buy actual burger breads. Me and family only stick to our all time favorite, our country’s favorite – Gardenia, white breads. This one just tip top! So recently I bought their hazelnut spread and latest, dark chocolate milky spread, awesome one for easy snack or something.

Back to my burgers. Yea, if I use Gardenia white bread, like photo above I usually have. 2 patty, 2 white breads only, and chilli sauce with mayonnaise, mayonnaise are my favorite. I had this way with beef patty or simply one, and the fastest, with fried eggs. Round fried eggs. I love it, have it with chilli sauce with mayonnaise, it taste so good.

Why 2? Run in family from mama, who is a diabetic.. So, I learn and practice to control whatever I feel or want to eat. If i want to eat rice, or anything organic, it always come down to the portion. The portion is the key, I can say. I can’t remember how long already I have been practicing this for myself. If we go to restaurant, it’s alright i tell myself to eat more than the amount of portions. Specially rice. But most of time, specially at mamak restaurants, I’ll ask them to reduce the portion of the rice.

I think my habit of it stick so hard now. At home? Same. Only quarter of the plate of rice, and more veggie and protein sources.

But it’s alright and it’s okay to snack like what I share here. It’s taste good too!

Some Thoughts: Something New

Try to keep up here too while did it something new.

Yes, did it. And, people say write if you feel something right. Here I am.

As an artist, visual artist, I’ve always or constantly have doubts. True, as a human and as a person, and I believe many of us, you out there too.

We can’t avoid it, I think? It’s a tough question sometimes I wonder, as in my field, art scene, it’s always a need for artists, singers, performers, actors, actresses, musicians, dancers, and even designers and crafters and even writers, bloggers – all of them, all of these people needs to be confident, almost at all times, as to me, as artist myself. But of course people in other fields too. It’s, I think, part of us? Having doubts..? Or we human shouldn’t have it? What do you think, you can comment, but not to correct in this matter, as I write on behalf of myself.

Doubts, it can comes and goes, I think and believe it’s depending. Depending on how a person upbringing, their surroundings, with who they mingle around with, their capabilities of thinking which one I think the most important part of us, and suchlike. It’s a contribution to us, which develops us into who we are in this world, and on society.

Doubts, it even causes a lot in our minds. Even thing like age can be a topic. True is, it’s not us personal point of view when comes to age topic, but society’s. Maturity and age always being links together, while in reality, it can’t, not much or always. People told that our maturity even thinking must come close, or must be exact like our age – while in reality, it can’t be. It’s different from each one of us, like I said, different upbringing and all. You can be 27 but your personality and all doesn’t look like and it’s okay! Even if you’re in 30s, it’s alright. I believe our maturity comes naturally, plus with all we experience in life.

So…. Why, doubts? I myself feel like it, time to time. And I noticed how in my field constantly campaigning to us artists, to be confident, like seriously. Which I think I have hard time to be so, while at the same time, I’m trying. Which to me, it can be toxic. Positive thinking being told, none stop, time to time, until some people started talking about “toxic positivity”, explained – at the end of the day, go with how your body feels but not too much until you can’t be down or dealing with your doubts.

Not easy to remove doubt and have confidence. No. It’s taking time. It’s taking effort and energy. Not having a confidence is one of topic that, to me, people just simply say, “you can do it”, “be positive”, and such, while in reality, some of us dealing with trauma, some with burnout, some with medical condition, or even struggling that come again and again, that some people don’t see it or even know it.

With doubts, even I feel like it, time to time I telling myself to keep on going, while there’s doubt inside. Because I did something which I will share in here in the future, if I want to. Art related too. This one too, takes time, so yea. But although I have doubts I just said to myself, “let’s just do this again, this time!”

So… You can be positive while you feel doubt about something, but we have to keep on going.. That’s all I can do, and we can be, but every each one of us different, so this one is just on mine. If you out there have no doubt at all, that’s something. Keep on going.

Just remember, take our time when we feel like, whatever we feel at the moment.

More importantly, our health and mind.
