Art & some personal boring stuff i.e. my life

Currently sorting out my documentation since it is the last week of the semester!

Funny how when I first started art school, all I wanted to show was what I wanted to see — beauty, love, happiness. Sure everyone loves to see this type of overrated and mainstream culture, and sure those things do exist in reality, but unfortunately, that’s NOT what they are looking for here. Modernism that led to contemporary art did not have an effect on me at first…until I started to explore more and understand more about it and about life….

I’m muslim born, malay born, and I obviously fall into the ‘girls’ category (nope I’m not gonna rant on feminism nor atheism). I did not care about that initially, I wanted to be free from that, free from where I was and what I was. I wasn’t free from that mindset, I was still stoooopid. Everything seems flat here in Australia; everyone is doing what everyone is doing — work, drink, shop, talk, sleep, work, drink, shop, complain. It kinda reflected my past routine back in my country, and that’s sad. But hell did I miss my culture!! There is so much to show and tell and FYI, I’m on the neutral side. I don’t personally 100% agree with anything, nor am I 100% against it of course. So this semester, I kinda got out of my comfort zone. And my focus is = PLASTIC.

Anonymous whispered, "helo its me again , just wondering....how to treat pimples? Since trying to avoid using too much product which is not good~"

Hi again me again!

Eat good, exercise & discipline. To be honest, I don’t get that much pimples now anyway, but I do sometimes get the hormonal one to three blind pimples per month, usually after a sugar &/ fried food binge. Keep in mind that your ideal diet won’t be the same as mine ya, but least you can do is try to avoid bad sugar and bad oil. One time I had major acne from religiously eating FIVE OILY beef/chicken pies (I’m a pescetarian now!) a day and gained 7 - 10 kilos. I cried because I felt unhealthy and ugly, so after a hella lot of motivations and inspirations, I successfully substituted the pie demons with fruits and yoghurts, cut down my food intake and started fasting. After a month or few, I lost my extra kilos and my face got so much better! I may still be short and my teeth still crooked, have dark armpits and hereditary under eye circles, I embrace them with confidence (and treat them like my sisters because I have an annoying sister, she’s beautiful nonetheless, and she’s my sister), but overconsumption of junk is something never to be proud of and practiced. I learned that change is hard, but the results are worth it. It’s easier to do it with like-minded friends, we can do it together when I get back to Brunei whoever you are missy!

p.s. I could go on forever but I’ll save that for a personal blabber.

p.p.s. I also put and pat a teenie weenie dot of white toothpaste on a pimple before I sleep, but I skip that part if I exercised.

Anonymous whispered, "Epp ! Hahahha your skin flawless ok! Any facemask suggestion?"

Maybe it’s the lighting? Maybe it’s maybelline? And nope sorry. I got over beauty & health consumer products and try to be as natural as possible (I still use makeup FYI because it’s fun, and I see makeup as an opportunity and not a need anymore). Invest in real food instead of artificial crap and be the healthiest version of yourself. Embrace health and beauty will be reflected from the inside out ! I’m not even just saying.

#blabber

The artsy version I presented in class. Just the idea of showing my face and embracing my flaws in front of the class is shit scary and nerve-racking, but I got over it anyway, so proud of myself !

It is amusing again how something so simple and random can be read analytically as a political material. The initial concept was actually process based, where my intention was to film random footages, staged and / or spontaneously, and end up with a whole lot of chances. The project outline was very simple yet obscure: Embrace chances, allow error.

Due: Week 11, 10.10.11

I took chances alright. Ended up with seven possibilities, reduced to three, and finally I had to decide on which one was worth the presentation. But I guess art students (and teachers) (or just fine artists in general) just love to overanalyse things.

A ‘clean’ and ‘better’ version of my project about being free on whatever you’re doing, accepting the error you are facing along the way. It’s POP-ly aesthetically more pleasing and acceptable (compared to the next one I’m posting next) because of its carefully structured nature. Who doesn’t like crispy black and white images?

The sound is actually a reversed clip of me karaoke-ing to Sephia by Sheila On Seven !

Sarah kah ni belabih? IDK dang, my skin is not even close to perfect but hell did I not sleep last night !

Vegetarian Summer Rolls with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce 

Author: Cookie and Kate

Recipe type: Appetizer or Main
Prep time:  30 mins
Cook time:  15 mins
Total time:  45 mins
Serves: 4
 
Spring rolls stuffed arugula, sesame seed-sprinkled tofu and crisp summer vegetables. Served with spicy peanut sauce, these rolls are a great appetizer or light main course. Bonus: they don’t require the stove or the oven!
INGREDIENTS
Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce
  • ½ cup roasted peanuts (unsalted or lightly salted)
  • ½ cup light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (the juice of less than 1 lime)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium tamari (or other soy sauce)
  • about 5 cloves garlic (to taste)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
Summer Rolls
  • 1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu
  • 1+ tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 heaping cups arugula, roughly chopped
  • 3 big carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 4 Persian cucumbers, cut into matchsticks (or about 2 regular cucumbers)
  • 2 red or orange bell peppers, top and bottom removed and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 jalapeño, cut into matchsticks (optional)
  • 3 green onions, sliced into thin rounds
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh mint
  • 8 sheets rice paper (8 to 10 inches in diameter)
  • Sriracha hot sauce, for serving with assembled spring rolls (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a food processor, process all of the dipping sauce ingredients for a couple of minutes, until fairly smooth. Transfer to a small bowl or divide into individual ramekins. (You can make the dipping sauce a day ahead, just cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.)
  2. Drain the water from the tofu and very gently squish some of the water out of the tofu. Slice the tofu into two slabs by cutting lengthwise through the center. Wrap the slabs in a clean tea towel or paper towels. Stack the slabs on top of each other and place a heavy saucepan or a plate and cans on top to help press out more of the moisture.
  3. Prepare the arugula, herbs and vegetables as directed in the ingredients list above. Set them out on your work surface, with a clean tea towel on the side.
  4. Remove the towels from the tofu and slice each slab into about 7 equal-sized strips (less than ½-inch in width). Sprinkle sesame seeds onto a plate or cutting board and gently roll the tofu strips to coat.
  5. Fill a bowl or baking pan with warm water. Place one rice paper in the water and let it rest for about twenty seconds. You’ll learn to go by feel here—the sheet should be pliable enough to give to touch but not super floppy. Lay it on the towel.
  6. Top the rice paper in a lengthwise orientation (as shown) with a big sprinkle of arugula, one strip of tofu, a few strips of carrot, cucumber, bell pepper and jalapeño (if using). Sprinkle with some chopped green onion, cilantro and mint.
  7. Fold over one long side to enclose the filling, then fold over the short sides like you would a burrito, and lastly, roll it up, stretching the remaining long side around the the roll to seal it. Serve the rolls whole or cut in half, with dipping sauce on the side.
