New content*

You’ve probably noticed that slightly different content from the past has been posted in the 3 most recent posts.  Since my interests have changed and grown in the last few years, please bear with me as I transition into posting new content.  To more new posts to come!


Donkey skin – Book illustrations

Donkey skin – Book illustrations by Sandra and Bruno Rilova:

 Simple colours, yet beautiful story telling in these intricate book illustrations with a woodblock printing look.


April Music Favourites

Check out the music that I’ve been listening in April so far (with some new and some old) :-

Into the Light by Solid:

Seriously looping this over and over again, it’s THAT good.  Great cinematography and shots of the city and its aura too.  Classy as heck.  Haven’t heard of them before but they’re apparently legends.


Favourite Mistake by Fyke:

They’re an American band from LA.  Wondering why they are so underrated; catchy tune with an edgy style.


One Shot Two Shot by Boa:

Really nice choreography with all the dancers and just the 2 of them.  Catchy song for drinking and karaoke (perhaps).  Nice colours with the dancers’ outfits matching in the frames as well.  Not crazy about that disco bling bling dress but the other outfits look fine.  A bit surprised when seeing how her face looks super white in one scene and then more natural right in the next scene.

What do you think?  Hope I can bring new music to your ears!

March Music Favourites

Here are some of the music I have been playing non-stop this month :-


Starry Night by MAMAMOO:

I’ll Be There by Cheetah:

Don’t Speak by ALi (ft. Cheetah) :

Would you like to see more posts like this? Love to hear your thoughts!

I’m (finally) back

Crow Island (2014) by Jiwoon PAK:

Sorry guys, I’ve been gone for so long… 3 years to be exact…

You know when you get a HUGE burnout and you forget about any of your interests and hobbies, because everything tires you and you just need to rest and recover (well, I had one of those and loads of overtime and etc. mixed in there), not to fully excuse myself but you get what I mean?  But here I am, trying to ignite this interest of mine again.

For those who still visit this blog, a big thanks for taking the time to read it!  Your views and comments definitely keep me going and I don’t feel so alone in this bubble of a blog anymore!

Have a great day everyone! =)

BACK on WordPress!


And back on Instagram too @articulateart – with pictures from the dazzling city of Hong Kong =)


(The Wipe Out Exhibit by Invader @invaderwashere that just ended on the 17th)

So what have I been up to……….

I made a new year’s resolution to read more this year and I just finished a duology! =D

The covers and titles just captured me; the cover art are absolutely amazing.

The first book is called The Assassin’s Curse, while the second one is called The Pirates’ Wish.

the assassins curse the pirates wish

 Assassins and Pirates – need I say more?

Apparently there’s a third book that’s a prologue called The Witch’s Betrayal but I haven’t gotten to it yet.

If you enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean (at least the first one for me), I’m sure you will enjoy them.

A light Y.A. read with pirates, assassins, and magic/ mystical creatures all mixed into one potion.

Songs that go with the books :

London Grammar – Wicked Game

Borns – Electric Love

Mat Kearney – Ships in the Night

Hyorin – Lonely

Muse – Starlight

Not going to give away which scenes they should be played at.  No spoilers 😉

The book had a lot of criticisms on book review sites, and many parts of it were true… but I still enjoyed it as a light read.  Perhaps I’ll save it for another post if any of you are interested.
