It was an absolutely wonderful week with a great bunch of people at the Islamic Bookbinding workshop by Dr Karin Scheper at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur. I definitely enjoyed many of the lectures about misconceptions of the binding structure and how it has probably been the inspiration of western bindings.
This also is a step backward in time, eastwards geographically and tracing the route of development of the craft of the book. 
Looking forward to explore on Islamic book structures and perhaps, develop something new and interesting. 
Thank you @islamicartsmuseummalaysia
for organising such a wonderful workshop.

I love the weave of the Islamic endbands. I just cannot get enough of it and my head is bursting with ideas on how I can innovate and make extremely creative design binds with the structure of the Islamic bindings.

Such a nice treat to be "ghosts" in Lady Mary's bedroom in the Downton Abbey exhibition. Thank you @louiskwok for this wonderful experience. I can't believe I was actually so ready to miss it because it was too expensive.

"Draw me like one of your french girls..." #lollathecat - 
I couldn't resist taking this shot and posting this picture because that's how Lolla is. She's such a seductress and knows that she is very beautiful. No wonder #greypouponthecat has fallen into her trap and is now a very good, responsible and mature boy...

What a nice overnight nip in the big press can do. Take away some bad paper wrinkles caused by unsuitable sewing. That's why it takes so much time for bindings to be done. That is because most of the time is when the papers are put under pressure to "forget" what was before, and to "remember" a better future.

I have never thought this day would come. That Poupon needed a girlfriend to tame him. And Lolla came at the right time. Guess it was all planned out by the mystical forces of nature.

Having 3 cats with different health problems and dietary needs can be a little difficult to find a good balance. Plus the costs of kibbles and canned food are so high. So I decided to try making home cooked cat food. Pressure cooked chicken breast with pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot and broccoli, mashed with a potato masher, then put into cupcake mould and frozen for daily use.

This is how Saturday afternoons be spent, on the sofa, with a cat, reading a book about cats. #dydythecat #fromthebellyofthecat #saturdayafternoon #nofilter

I've got the ocean in my palm. -

I picked up this Lapis Lazuli when I was at my favourite crystal shop some weeks ago and I cannot help but love it so much because it resonates so much with my love of the sea and the ocean. Looking forward to the day I can sit by my little cottage by the sea, looking out at the endlessness beyond me, just like how it is, on this stone.
