Time to get a move on... 2011 hasn't been kind, time were taken and soul was pushed, I look forward to what’s coming in 2012.

The first two weeks stealthily sneaked in without much happenings, I am pretty broke this round so unlike the aftermath of lavish New York trip last year, I don’t feel that empty.

I should write again, every now and then, and this would be a constant reminder of me, by me.

And journalistic it should be.

Last weekend was so great, it’s always good to bask in the arts gleam. Artstage was taken place in MBS convention hall, I have never been to the inaugural last year. It’s an energetic fair, bursting with arts enthusiasts and very inspiring. The company of Kuanth and the immaculate gang made it felt even cooler, haha. I really like how the fair merges works of the old and contemp, traditional and experimental, adroitness and fashion forward. There’s a vast spectrum of artist with good focus on the asians.

Just for the sake of record, I saw Gilbert & George, Anthony Gromley, Joan Miro, Marc Quinn, Picasso, The Gao Brothers, Phunk Studio, Keiichi Tanami, Michael Lee, Heman Chong, Rodel Tapaya (favourite), Navin Rawachaikul (awesome 300 asian icons artist), Murakami, Yoshinara, LaChapelle, and this amazing new found Kondoh Akino (that does Kiya kiya). The whole place is definitely an artist playground and by the time I leave, it didn’t feel like 4 hours have passed.

I am also grateful that I made it to Brian Gothong’s Milk and Honey. It is a very humble show but there’s a personal feeling that’s quite endearing. It also inspired me to start keeping my sketchbooks faithfully so if there’s one day my solo exhibition dream comes true I will have them proudly displayed.

The week ends of with a wonderful movie by Cameron Crowe (who directed Jerry Mcguire and Vanilla sky) – We bought a Zoo. It’s a grief-themed movie, to me a lot of Kodak moments, very fine looking cinematography and indie camera works, comes with soundtrack from Jonis of Sigur Ros. Very my kind of visual and audio, even though the adaptation is a bit predictable, I am glad it wasn’t draggy.

Great weekend.
