Simply answer Dottie’s questions

I’m more than thankful being nominated twice  by  lovely  dottiedaniels . ❤ I got nominated by  her for the Liebster Award this time.  However, I was nominated for the same award before and hence I’m not going to do the whole thing again. I’ll just simply answer her questions.

My answers to the 5 questions she asked:

1. Who is your favorite person (living or deceased)? As mentioned in the previous post “No regrets”  , my grandma is a fearless person who I always look up to. She has inspired me in so many ways and of course she is my favorite person. ❤

2. What is your favorite subject to write about? Life experiences.

3. What is your favorite place in the world? Porto (Portugal) even though I’ve never traveled to before. I know I’ll love it since it is a place where it is always associated with vibrant colors which I’m always a big fan of. 🙂

4. What was your favorite toy when you were little? Teddy bear.

5. What was the last song you heard? “Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele (she is an amazing singer) ❤

Have a beautiful day everyone! 😉

With love,

No regrets

204 faburlifekhloe

As an adult, we have countless responsibilities either from personal life or at work. Sometimes, we wish we could rewind the time back to our childhood and thus we would be back to the world with minimal responsibilities. I was one of them who had the same thoughts, especially when looking at this photo. It took me back to the time when my parents took me to different places to have fun almost every weekend. As my parents didn’t care my grades much, so I basically didn’t study much. I was just having fun every single day. I wasn’t scared of anything also even I got terribly burnt by boiling water when I was around 4 years old. It left an obvious scar on my left face. Everyone in family was really worried at that time and even sought for an advice from a doctor if I could proceed to have a plastic surgery to cover my scar. The doctor didn’t recommend it at all since I was too young to do so. I’m glad the scar has been fading pretty well year after year and it’s not very visible now. 😉  This drama didn’t stop me from trying anything. However, majority of us learn to protect ourselves more as we grow. We start to be scared or worried if we haven’t done things perfectly. We are basically scared of facing failure. Therefore, we are unable to live freely and often wish to go back to childhood. It looks like we want to escape from the reality.

Such thoughts of mine has completely disappeared when I was looking at my grandma one day. She is  currently 91 years old. She looks much younger compared to those at the same age. She is always full of energy and still shouts at my cats loudly when they get naughty. I can’t recall a time when she is scared of something. I remember back when she was close 80 years old and still wanted to take a roller coaster ride. Obviously, we stopped her from doing that and I  asked her why she was always excited for thrill rides. She told me that there was no thrill rides when she was younger and we only live once in our lives. Hence, she wishes to try as many thrill rides as she could. Her bold and fearless attitude got me thinking the escape from reality is not necessary. The only matter is your perspective and attitude towards reality. No matter the end result is good or not,  there is no harm in trying. At least we have no regrets in the end. 🙂

Stay motivated and positive ❤ ,

One Lovely Blog Award

I would like to send a massive thanks to dottiedaniels nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I really appreciate her to take her time to go through my blog before nominating me. Although I don’t know her in person, I really like her lovely personality. Please go check her blog to show her some love. ❤

7 facts about me:

1. I wasn’t an artist all my life. In fact, I hated drawing and couldn’t draw in the past. When I turned 17 years old, I had to an art class and forced to make some art portfolios for my homework. Even though someone found me having artistic potentials at that time, I still dropped that subject as I didn’t enjoy drawing at that time. However, I found myself fascinated by different art pieces in the past few years. Under an encouragement of a good friend of mine, I started to make art pieces this year only. It is also why you all see the digital artworks my friend and I created.

2. English is not my first language. In fact, I couldn’t understand a single word from my English teacher when I first went overseas for studying because I was one of the laziest kid in the world who didn’t really study. All I did was basically play, eat and sleep. I only started to study hard after I turned 17 years old and it was also the time I went overseas for studying. So, you might my English is pretty weak.  In case you wonder where I went for studying, I actually went to Sydney for studying.

3. I was very allergic to eggs when I was a kid. So, I wasn’t allowed to eat eggs. However, I really love the taste of eggs. Remember one time when I ate ten eggs at a time and got caught by my mom because she found there were tons of eggshells in the bin lol. 😉

4. I love listening to music. I don’t care what language it is. Even though I don’t understand what the song is about, I will still listen to it if I like the music.

5. I was quite overweight compared to those who live in the same country in the past. I lost almost 40 pounds after I started to eat healthy and do yoga few years ago. I’m glad I’m able to maintain a healthy weight from that time until now. I also realized I just ate too much junk food in the past (I still eat junk food from time to time now 🙂 ) and we can do pretty much whatever we want if we put our mind to it.

6. I love to eat vegetables. Sometimes, I can eat a kilogram of it at a time. Although I really love vegetables, I don’t like carrots at all. I’m now making myself to eat more carrots as they are very good for health.

7. My lips are very easy to chap, so i just can’t live without my chapstick. I have to bring it with me wherever I go.

Move on

203A faburlifekhloe

Hi everyone! 🙂 How are you doing? I’m glad to know many readers like the artworks I posted here. It really motivates my friend and I to create more artworks. Here is another digital artwork “Move On” my friend and I created. We didn’t use a lot of fancy techniques to create this artwork the time because we want you all to see the picture a bit more clearly.

I was enjoying the beauty of the river at that time and there was a lot happening alongside the river. People were busy running errands. Taxi drivers were taking their passengers from one place to another. Some people were eating at the restaurants while some were talking on the street. The entire picture somehow made me think of breakup. Although not all breakups are heartbreaking, some of them definitely are. Those heartbreaking breakups can make us cry for hours, days, months or even years for some. seems like we are lack of energy or something… All we do is just cry and think about the memories we had with that particular person we love/loved. However, what I would like to make a note out of this artwork is not encouraging you to give up on yourself if you experience a difficult time during your breakup. All I want to say is to let go of your unhappiness and look forward to the future. It might sound cliché, but it’s so true. The world keeps turning everyday just as the way  there was a lot happening in the artwork. There are so many beautiful things out there waiting for us to explore. Keep thinking about the terrible breakup and giving up on yourself are just like blocking the river to flow. Imagine if someone blocks the river from flowing, it will create a disaster like flooding. It not only affects the river itself, but also affects everything surrounded it. The same could also happen to you. Giving up on yourself will stop you from moving forward just like the river is getting blocked. Everything will eventually get blasted creating a flood to your life. It not affects your life, but also people around you.  You will find yourself cry more than ever and feel like everything is lifeless. People around you will be under pressure worrying something might happen to you. You should do something that makes you happy and talk to friends/family about it. Just take baby steps to forget about it slowly. I know it’s difficult at first, but please be patient with it. Please don’t let your negative emotions block your vision from seeing how beautiful the world is. It’s like the purple color was being used in the artwork blocking you from seeing how colorful the original photo is. Trust me life is beautiful. ❤

Stay strong and positive 🙂 ,

Gratitude

B faburlifekhloeHi everyone! Hope you all are doing well! 🙂  After finishing “The Journey of Self-Discovery” series, here I am again introducing you the latest digital artwork “Gratitude” my friend and I created.

Before I jump into the artwork, I would like to tell you something about myself. I’m an emotional person who easily shows any type of emotions  on my face. I can’t really hide anything at all. I love to smile and I laugh hard on stupid little things of daily life. If something really upsets me, I will cry like a baby.

This artwork has perfectly shown my emotional personality. I was laughing so hard after having an ice-cream for no reason at that time. I laughed too hard till a point where I had to cover my mouth to avoid disturbing others at the same restaurant because of the noise my crazy laughter made. I was very happy that a  good friend of mine captured that special moment of mine before we turn it into a digital artwork. Some people might think I’m such a weirdo who laughed so hard after having an ice-cream for no reason and now even turned it into an artwork?!?! Well it is much more special than anything to me. It not only captures a moment of my life which can be a part of my good memories, but also teaches me a lesson of gratitude and how simple my life can be. Having an ice-cream might seem like something ordinary and there might be some people having it on a regular basis. However, there are so  many people who haven’t gotten a chance to try an ice-cream. So many people out there are in need of food, clothing, water…struggling  to live…It reminds me to be grateful for what  I have. It also tells me to cherish a moment like this can make my life simpler than I thought it would be. Making my life this simple can bring me an abundance of joys. The vibrant color combinations of reddish orange, yellow, purplish pink, orange were being used in this artwork to depict the abundance of joys that I have ever since living my life simple. The purpose of making this artwork is to remind myself to be grateful for everything I have and help others in need wherever I can. Simultaneously, I would like to deliver the same message to all of you.

Hope this artwork makes you all happy and have a wonderful day! 🙂

The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 3

A faburlifekhloe

Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing well! 🙂 Here I am again posting another artwork which continues “The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 2”. Speaking of “The Journey of Self-Discovery”, I got a reader asking me why the series of “The Journey of Self-Discovery” seem so sad. Honestly, I wasn’t trying to make you all sad or anything. I was just expressing my complicated feelings during my journey of self-discovery. It can be miserable and difficult at times, but I still remain positive.

“The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 3” has clearly shown how positive I am about my future. It also explains the reason why I mentioned that I still remain positive even though part 1 and 2 seemed a bit sad overall. Yes – it wasn’t easy for me to deal with the pressures I received from my family and relatives, especially I’m just in the progress of proving them what I chose is right. Simultaneously, It really does take time to prove them and they are not that patient to see me proving them. Therefore, those pressures keep shaking the vision I have on my dream from time to time. However, I know I shouldn’t be affected by those pressures. In order to be myself and achieve my dream, I must be strong enough to tackle those pressures and positive enough to make my dream happen. I also need to keep motivating myself to stay true to myself and do what it takes to achieve my dream.

Moving on to the artwork, I’m sure a lot of you can see almost a complete difference in this artwork compared to part 1 and 2. As far as you remember, my friend and I used the color of purplish blue as a main color for part 1 and 2 . The purplish blue color expressed my complicated and miserable feelings created by the struggles and uncertainties I had. However, my friend and I used brighter colors for this artwork to show how positive I am about my future and how happy I am to welcome my future. The brighter green color is to remind myself to constantly refresh my mind with a brand new perspective to see my pressures, struggles and uncertainties. I shouldn’t see them as a pain. Conversely, I should make them as my motivation. The reddish orange color was also being used for the artwork. This color not only shows how happy I am after using a brand new perspective to see my pressures, struggles and uncertainties as a motivation, but also reveals the positivity I have towards my future. Using this color as a dominant color for the artwork shows the level of my happiness has dramatically increased after adopting the brand new perspective to my life. Apart from the color, you will see the people I referred as my family and relatives have become fewer. They have become fewer not because they are not in my life anymore. It’s because I chose not to let them take control of my life. Therefore, you will see me being a focal point in the artwork because I started to take control of my life. Last but not least, there is a very important note I would love to make about this artwork is the bright light on the top right corner. There was a small story behind it actually. I was on a small cruise going under a canal and there was a bright light peeking through the end of the canal. I would describe our lives are like canals. We constantly go through different canals in our lives. When we go under the canal is just like experiencing a darker time of our lives, but it doesn’t mean it is the end of the world. If we keep a positive attitude towards our future, we will always see a bright light (bright future) at the end of the day. It is like we will always see a bright light after going through a canal.
