You can have the afternoon off!

Song Kheng Hai Hawker Centre

A Fire Look-out tower used to mark one end of Jalan Padungan; now a garish Chinese arch mars the  spot
Today is my birthday and I am traveling to Penang with Sara and a bunch of friends to participate in the Penang Bridge Half-Marathon. After we landed in Penang at 11:30 a.m. - birthday messages started coming in from one or two office friends. To which I replied by telling them that for wishing me 'happy birthday' they can have the afternoon off! And what do you know...more birthday messages came in and I continued telling each of them to have the afternoon off; I guess I ll find out if they did take the afternoon off when I return on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, I recently gave myself the afternoon off and sketched in Padungan; enjoyed the guilty pleasure of a stolen afternoon and re-discovery of the 0.4 Artline pen.


  1. Hi there, may i ask you that do you render your sketches with water color after you have drawn using felt pen? Will it saturate the black ink?

  2. Yes, I wash with water colour after the ink lines; I don't mind the blotting effect so water soluble inks are ok. You can also get water-proof inks for ink and wash

  3. Song Kheng Hai! My fav place for high tea XD
    Drawing of it is quite interesting thru art =)
