OWEN AND VOKES


That letter box, frontage of the house itself -


Those chairs and white tiles -

It was about 12 months ago I last saw their weblink. I always fancy their work, for some un-exlainplainable reason. Maybe the name OwenAndVokes sounds good to begin with.

ANDREW BIRD


Released in Feb 2009 by Fat Possum. Andrew Bird's latest album 'Noble Beast' is a class of their own, very crafty, poetic, and sounded magical. Bird's vocals delivered me to la-la land. To begin with, try 'Anonanimal' or 'Not A Robot, But A Ghost'.

DOMESTICATED

Back home, doing more housework than actual design work. I found myself enjoying watering my plants (used to gardens alot when i was in highschool) and sitting infront of my house doing my readings (you never know how much you can get from those ole old mags donkey years back). So, nothing related to design really, this post is basically about mum's recent strict sense of arrangements. Impressive -

1 When two toilet is side by side, both of the floor mat infront of the entrance shall be aligned along the entry line, therefore neater. That is anal!
(FYI: toilets and bathroom are commonly seperated here)

2 Do not leave the door opened! 'It looks neater!' As oppose to what I do sometimes, leaving the door ajar.

3 All things at home is functional unless travel souvenirs, which also arranged in her kind of manner. Very neat too.

Applause, applause -

DIY


I was thinking of giving something to this lovely friend of mine. So, this is what I've done with the Preshafruit bottle. Thought it would be nice for her work desk -

PRESHAFRUIT


Preshafruit Granny Smith - Yumm, and not to mention the overall smart packaging - easy to hold too.


Just when i was taking a shot of the juice bottle from the balcony, i thought this shot is memorable to be archived here. View from the balcony - humm... interesting.

DUPPION



Duppion - also known as Indian silk. I remembered around July last year i was looking for tartan/checker box scarf from fabric store. (Well, I was inspired by e15 fabrics collection) They haven't got any in yet.

So, when i was passing by Tessuti in Surry Hills today, spotted this Duppion @35$ /meter on the window. Half a meter @ 17.50$. I loved it, particularly the waxed texture that gives the silk, a little bit more structure. I decided to post this up when the taxi driver asked me where did i get my scarf from, earlier today - Hilarious.

*the image turned out orangey-er. Supposed to be gunpowder grey with hint of pomegranate -

SUMMER HOURS



So, we had our movie at verona last night. I thought it would be just nice for a relaxing evening without much thinking. Yes, it was, the movie was slow and narrative. A very classy woman, Helene (almost Ms. Wintour lookalike, especially her hair styling) left behind a collection of valuable antiques behind for her children.

The whole movie is about how Helene's children manage her will, after she passed away. The ending was unpredictably quick though, but there was a very subtle message behind it. You should all find out.
