Hey Life! Love You :)

This is a closing entry to give thanks to my wonderful vacation that is coming to a swift end. Typographically speaking, it has not been a prolific year but I am not one to be too hard on myself. Nevertheless, here are some drawings to prick myself, instead. On a side note, what have I been indulging in besides fussing over my four-month-old abode?

♥♥♥♥♥ K-Pop and Mando-Pop ♥♥♥♥♥

蕭敬騰 is literally a human jukebox. He is not exactly spanking new. I am three years late to discover this musical gem. He is especially good at doing old songs like 衝動的懲罰 (originally by 刀郎), 記得 (originally by 张惠妹), 我怀念的 (originally by 孙燕姿), and 新不了情 (originally by 万芳). Not that he does not have anything original: 只能想念你. I will be getting his 蕭敬騰同名專輯 **幸福**

秘密花园 is my other ****幸福****. I am one year late for this one. So I was not in the frenzy (last year) when Hyun Bin went to serve his National Service. I have never gone out of my way to purchase a drama serial until 秘密花园 came along. It was a out-of-body experience and I LOVE out-of-body experiences.

So, this vacation has done me super good and I am totally feeling very **幸福** and inspired indeed. I am glad to be where I am.

It's not what you win but how you conquer it

Conqueror is organizing a competition. I think the message makes Simple looks cool. Listening to 蕭敬騰 - 倒帶 now. On repeat mode: 蕭敬騰 - 新不了情.

Prahaha Free Download

Finally, I have decided not to pursue Prahaha as a full latin character set which means I am not going to put it up for sale anyway and therefore might as well give it away for free. Download under the Creative Commons License. Prahaha, my very first and free typeface that comes in 3 weights which does not come in as a full latin character set. However, please contact me for commercial use.

Pearls of Wisdom by Winnie Tan

Awesome quotes and type and other stuff :) Pearls of Wisdom by (another) Winnie Tan.

Free Rue Display Posters

My typeface activity for this year (to-date) is practically a dismal zero. Needless to say, it was a super pleasant surprise when I received this bundle of joy. VB thought the colors looked kind of militant. I thought they simply look organic :)

So, if you have bought Rue Display over this link and happened to be in SG, I will have it delivered to you!
