A visit to Pahang Art Museum

Assalamualaikum dan halluuuuu semuanya~~

I decided to write on this because I wanted to treasure this moment as one of the most beautiful moments I had in medical school. My classmates and I; we the whole batch went there by bus, so it kinda felt like a class trip that we all experienced during our years in high school. I got excited for no reasons padahal educational trip je. Actually most of all didn't know where were we going to go - still, the excitement was there because we were all in this together AHAHA gituh!

I think many people already know that I like visual art. I like it too much, I just can't help. Tapi tulah, inilah dia first time jejakkan kaki ke art museum. Art exhibitions dan sewaktu dengannya pun harommm satu pun tak pernah pergi! So as soon as I entered the building muka pun berubah ala-ala emoji Whatsapp yang ada love dekat dua biji mata tu. 

Ini siling ruang tengah museum tu.
Ekceli macam ada kayak tergantung but I couldn't take a proper picture of it.

There are different sections in the museum that exhibit different themes. Ada tema Makyong, tema Orang Asli, tema batik, wayang kulit, dan sebagainya. I wasn't really interested in any of their themes but lebih kepada mengkaji teknik lukisan yang dipamerkan. Mostly guna acrylic dan oil paint. There I was thinking, "besarnya canvas, agak-agak berapa lama dia orang lukis ni," or "macam mahal je kalau jual," or "awat kreatip sangat homaigod. Nak rompak boleh tak."

I forgot everything they told me about the history, the artists, and... yeah. Everything. I just forgot everything HOHOHO I obviously went there just for fun.

This canvas piece is so large. Makyong theme.

Photography, also Makyong theme.
Taken by the same person who did the Makyong art.

The Orang Asli theme.

Various handcrafts made by the aborigines.

Oh, there's a pink one!

Ini pulak macam statue tapi diperbuat daripada kayu.
The person who built(?) this studied anatomy hokay.

Here's a sad story. Masa masuk section yang banyak painting tu jugaklah phone aku mati. Tak dapat ambil gambar. I was amazed by how detailed the paintings are. I forgot the artist's name but she majored in fashion designing if I'm not mistaken.

Wayang kulit theme.

Banyak sangat acrylic painting tema wayang kulit but I particularly like this one. I stared at it for so long; it felt like love at first sight to me.

Tema Pantai Timur.

Ini adalah cop batik ya kawan-kawan.

Some random paintings. 

Tema Islamik.

Mushaf Uthmani.

Oh, did I mention about the grass outside? Rumput dia sangat sedap, rasa macam nak baring sebab rasa macam bersih??? AHAHA. Boleh main kejar-kejar lagi.

Unboxing TalkTalk Korea 2017 Runner-Up Prize Box


Maybe some of you guys already knew that my entry for TalkTalk Korea 2017 was shortlisted for Voting Event (for popularity award; they claimed). I shamelessly asked everyone to vote for me (as published HERE). I didn't win the popularity award (more like, I have no idea who won) but I managed to get 4th place in this event for Illustration category! Yeay!


I entered last year's TalkTalk event as well and I got 6th place but the prize was 16GB KBS World pendrive (the prize was supposed to be Bangtan's album as they were the embassador for last year's event but somehow they changed it idk???).

It's supposed to be postcard design. I'm secretly waiting for someone to hire me as postcard designer HAHAHA but that's not gonna happen.

Actually this is my 4th time winning KBSW event, if I'm not mistaken. K-drama posters, calendars, tote bag, K-pop album, planners, tumbler, hand mirrors, pen drives, and KOKO plush toy are some of the items they sent me.  I believe this is not really because of pure luck as I was never lucky when it comes to this. I really put a lot of effort to do some research and to collect ideas before I entered any contest. Above all, it's called rezeki.

This is the KOKO plush toy I mentioned. It's really big and sphere, so I never had any chance to bring it to my hostel /sobs/

I forgot for how many weeks did I wait for the parcel to reach home, but all I can remember is that, Korean Embassy sent me an e-mail to notify me that they sent me something (usually KBSW would send the prize directly to me instead of going through the Korean Embassy). I laughed so hard when I saw they wrote "makanan" on the consignment note. I mean, I expected gifts like EXO-CBX album, EXO merchandises, etc. (I thought they promised something like that).

They sent me makanan?!

I was quite shocked when I opened the box. They REALLY SENT ME MAKANAN! YA RABBI KALAU HALAL TAKPE JUGAK! HAHA. I'm still lucky because they included other stuffs as well.

Ramyeon, Jjajangmyeon. I've always liked Shin Ramyeon but sadly this one has no Halal logo. So yeah, I gave it away to someone else.


Last time I checked, Maxim coffee drinks are halal, so that made me smile hehe. They gave only 4 sticks and I finished them all in just a week! I heard that Korean coffee is nothing like our coffee; you should expect that it's going to be bitter (with exception of some coffee, of course). AND I LIKE THAT. I MEAN, COFFEE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SWEET MANNNNN! Coffee 3-in-1 dekat Malaysia semua manis T^T

Topeng muka (SM Ent. merchandise).

Not a fan of EXO anymore, but I wanna keep this mask because I knew right away that it's an official SM merchandise when I saw the logo behind it. I expect that this thing must be expensive even if the quality is just - MEH. It came with Chen photocard as well but I gave it away to my friend LOL~

Pen drive, again. It's cute tho. 4GB only but... it's cute.

Pyeongchang Winter Olympics 2018. Soon! I think this is an official merchandise. It's nice to receive it early.

Face mask sheets! There are five or six of them (I can't remember). You give me any skin care products and I'll be happy. Easy.

Sunscreen but stick version. I never tried it on my face (I think I never will). So guna untuk tangan je kot.

That's all for today. Till we meet again.
