Yes, I’m back again 😛
I’ve been very quiet here lately, like blah. I’ve been meaning to write an update for the longest time now but never got to it. I don’t really have a very good excuse to offer either. I’ve just been pre-occupied and haven’t got enough energy and mojo to write anything. I’ll get around to it, eventually.
I’ve been popping on Twitter once in a while, sort of… to post a few photos, check a few important people that I follow (lol), engage in a convo once in a while but otherwise I’ve been quiet.
I enjoyed the peace and turned my focus to calligraphy, practicing my strokes and swirls. So far, I’m making progress. Can you see? 🙂
You are looking at my brand new pen, by the way, bought from a master turner from the USA for a very good price. My creative side (ahem) thinks I’ve shown massive progress so I decided to put away my Speedball pen and reward myself with this beauty. A real pen – a turned Brazilian rosewood fitted for my Nikko G nib. It can also fit my other nibs such as Esterbrook 355, Hunt 56 and 22, as well as my Hiro 40.
In other news side, the holiday chachita bells have started ringing again in the Kingdom! It’s the Water Festival next week! This means no work for three days (usually extending to one week) and it’s a good excuse for most expats like us to go out of town and chill. And yeah, escape the chaos. It was reported though that the annual crowd-magnet boat-racing competition is cancelled this year but a large number of people coming from the nearby towns are still expected to arrive in the capital to join in the city-wide partying.
Anyhoo, like any other expats, my husband and I haven’t planned anything yet. A month ago we said we’d go to Kampot, but it looks like yobo has a change of heart. Let’s see which way the wind blows this weekend.
