unwrap the true spirit of christmas

Christmas brings out the worst cynic in me.  Frustration mounts within when I have to contend with crowds and listen to horrible christmas songs in every shopping mall.  I question what is the point of all that feasting and partying when barely a week later, another round of countdown partying begins yet again.  Many people tell me to chill. “It’s the Christmas spirit afterall.  You should enjoy yourself.”  I don’t know.  I still don’t see the point of it.

I prefer to keep it low at Christmas and do something for someone who really needs it.  Years back, someone introduced the idea of giving up a gift for someone out there who really needs it.  World Vision’s “Unwrap the true spirit of Christmas” always comes to mind.  It is simple and meaningful.

The Christmas wish list is simple:

1. Child Education Fund – $10

2. Seeds for one family – $17

3. Bed nets for a family – $18

4. Clean water fund – $25

Well, the list goes on and you could just buy the gift online. You get the idea now? I’ve particularly enjoyed the videos that made me think about how I can actually do something simple for people who really need it.  You  would never think that chickens can make a difference to someone’s life right?

Catch the rest of the episodes here.   I hope you would consider taking the road less travelled and do something different this Christmas 🙂

I am good with stickman!

Ever so often I need a vision break when I am marking these days.  Drawing is the least of my talents.  5B can attest to it.  But this page just kept me going 🙂 Stickman drawings are my forte! Heh.  Why don’t you try it? Enjoy your vision break!


moleskine you got me

I was meaning to start work immediately after burning the entire afternoon at a seminar.  This video is so fascinating purely because I have been a die hard fan of moleskine and the cutouts are just incredible.

Night Lights 2011


Don’t bother scrolling. Most of the pics are not good enough to make it here. Night photography is really difficult. In any case, I hope you didn’t miss Night Lights 2011.

one life for all the beautiful things

I wish I had all the time in the world to admire beautiful things and great works of art. If you have nothing to do this weekend, go see the night installations around town 🙂
