Here's an 'au naturel' (with the exception of frame and text that I added) picture I took this morning with my phone. It's the last sunrise of 2011. Here's saying goodbye to 2011 and welcome 2012!

Some weeks ago, I visited Japan and had the opportunity to visit Ghibli Museum, a wonderfully whimsical museum that all Ghibli anime fans should go at least once in their lifetime. I will blog about the visit in another time. For now, I'd like to show you a paper sculpture made from a DIY paper sculpture pack bought from Ghibli Museum.

Not getting a tree for Xmas? Not to worry, the newspapers to the rescue!
Interestingly the classified section of the Straits Times had incorporated a DIY origami tree tutorial on its front page that readers could make and join in a contest. I wasn't too interested in the contest (having zilch luck in contests can do that to you) but was more interested in making the tree. It's really quite simple. Just follow the instructions below.

Malaysia, Singapore's next door neighbour, is a resource rich country with an abundance of sights and scenery to enjoy.
Although I've not been there before, I've heard rave reviews from divers about the pristine waters of Sipadan, near Sabah, Malaysia. Corals, turtles and many other marine species abound, Sipadan is one of the world's top ten diving site. Which is why it's become one of the places to visit on my bucket list. Despite having forgotten my diving basics, I resolve to go there someday, even if it means just snorkelling.

I've 2 more sketches inspired by Australia.
The lavender fields in Tasmania....which I wouldn't mind helping out at the farm for a stint.
And hot air ballooning in the famous Canberra hot air balloon festival.

I'd like to thank all who've checked out my Sketchbook at the Brooklyn Library, it's been more than a year now since the 2011 project, and I'm glad my sketchbook is still being displayed and viewed by visitors till now. For completeness, I'd continue to upload the rest of the pictures drawn for the Sketchbook 2011.
Here are some sketches inspired by Thailand, ie, Phuket and Bangkok.
