Inbound Tourism- Final

This cartoon out in BB today. Visiting interesting places in Brunei is one of the thing that I have not done enough. There are plenty of great locations to go in Brunei and some I don't even know they exist until I read about them at the Tourism Brunei website. Nicely design website by the way.

Back to Work

Went away for short vacation, back to work tomorrow. Was looking for a good fiction book for the holiday (initially Dan Brown's Lost Symbol), but at end up reading this book by Muhammad Yunus. Very inspiring! (as said on the cover). But left me with lot of questions. Like how do we define poverty in Brunei?, are non-governmental agencies and big corporations doing enough for social cause?.. anyway I am officially still on holiday hehehe

Second Book

Creating a new hero character by playing around with whatever ideas pop to mind. Having fun with sketching it, slowly building and hopefully perfecting it. Initial process of transfering mental picture to paper should be a smooth-inda-agressive-go-with-the-flow moment. The more you enjoy it, the better the result.

Lambat Jugaaa

Went to "my" tailor last weekend to make Baju Melayu. First thing he said "Lambat jugaaa hantar ?!". He hesitated but at the end agreed to make my Baju Melayu. Not sure why it is called Baju Melayu ah, may be because worn by orang Melayu and made by Indians?

Baju Melayu baru

I have not make my baju melayu yet. My better half suggested two already (of different colors). I think my tailor still expecting me to turn up few days before raya, just like previous years hehehe.

Crazy Surely

The final product. Out in BB today.

Second sketch. Better angle, but not aggressive enough. Bedroom environment better for showing awkward hours.

Initial sketch. Week angle. Also, living room environment didn't quite does it for "crazy hours".

Geography of Food

This is what interesting during Ramadhan. Everywhere is food related. Sungkai Buffet, Food promotion etc etc. I suppose nothing wrong, it's just interesting. The more we observe, the more interesting. Like the names of kuih2, cooking etc. Yang penting time puasa ni, inda membazir. This cartoon out in BB today.

The Edited sketch.

The Original Sketch. (I have to use my phone to take pictures, since the scanner still in Tutong). The original caption "Cool by association"

"Dari Anas r.a ia berkata: Rasulullah s.a.w ditanya orang: Apakah sedekah yang lebih baik? Jawab Rasulullah s.a.w; Sedekah yang paling baik ialah sedekah bulan Ramadhan." Riwayat Tirmizi.

That's it

I promise this is the last cartoon on Haze this "season". I need to find other ideas for my next cartoon. This one out in BB yesterday.

I heard story from a friend that during the haze, a lot of insects were hiding in his golf bag when he was in the golf course. I wonder, one, why is he playing golf during hazy time. Two, those insects kan hide from the haze or looking for the left over chocolate.
