Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!
And to all mothers who supported us all!

Our family have different tradition to celebrate Mother's Day where we also celebrate Father's Day too(But that's mainly because my dad doesn't care for Father's day celebration so I just combine the two).

My parents gave us lot of fun memories in our childhood. So this year, I wanted to give them our childhood memory they gave us in illustration form.

When we were kids, my mom made this jumbo sized stuffed rooster to play with. It was big enough to have my two little brothers and myself to sit on, sit comfortably to read books(manga), and sleep on too.
The head piece definitely didn't last that long. In the end, we spent time sitting on it headless and you can see the way my mom stuffed this rooster. That was lot of cottons and sponge to stuff!

Happy Mother's Day!



I love IKEA's square shadow box frame! I've been wanting to illustrate something that involves with layering paper to paper to have little more depth with my illustration.

Happy Mother's Day!



Here is wip shots of how I made this illustration.

Gudetama is a very cute character.
He makes great expression that everyone feels on their bad day. But watching him, gives me a little smile for the day.

This is a little gift for a girl who currently likes Gudetama.

Tomato Sliced Salad

For people who loves tomatoes by itself!

Easy side dish I like to make with main meal. And you don't have to make too much, it can be small plate portion, but I like to make extra so it can carry over the next day.

This is usually my immune system booster meal that I always have just when I feel that I'm about to get sick. Chewing on raw green onion helps you clear out your scratchy throat the next day!

Tomato Salad



Tomato Sliced Salad
- 5 choices of your favorite tomatoes sliced to 0.5cm
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds, grind
- olive oil or sesame oil
- sea salt and pepper

Step 1:
Lay tomatoes on plate nicely, and sprinkle salt all around it.

Step 2:
Dump green onion on and sprinkle salt again.

Step 3:
Sprinkle sesame seeds and ground pepper and then drizzle oil on top.

Step 4:
Let it sit in the fridge for at least 30min so the flavor comes together.


There's no "correct" measurement to make this. The important part of this is to sprinkle sea salt on tomatoes and green onion so the green onion juice will drip through the tomatoes and it becomes more flavorful.

Sometimes I would even use more green onion to completely cover the tomatoes but you can adjust that based on your preference!
