Have a happy Chinese New Year!
(This was put together using a number of apps on the iPad. The dog with the faux paper cutting pattern using Inkpad, then using Procreate to add the smile, and Pic Collage for the background and Spark Post for the text. Photo in the background was taken last Saturday morning just before starting a 3-hour lesson.)
Bobo, a picture book that also comes with an illustrated recipe for Bobo Chacha, was written and illustrated by Moses. It is now available on Amazon for Kindle.
(Unfortunately, Kindle books are not available for Singapore-registered Amazon accounts. Hopefully it will be soon. Only 13 Kindle stores for now, including US, UK and Japan.)
Separately, Moses also now has an Author Page at Amazon Author Central.
If you do get to read Bobo on Kindle, do let us know how you felt.

Was playing around with creating these emoji ice cream cones – the idea for this mash-up came from it being Emoji Day and Ice Cream Day.
When I shared them with Adam, he suggested that I consider selling them as Line stickers. With a quick search, I ended up trying the Mojilala site to do this. It was a fairly painless and rather quick process.
What happens after this? To be honest, I still do not know. It is fun playing and learning. I do like this set of emoji ice cream cones – charmingly cute, aren’t they?
These were created using the Inkpad app.

We are going to be part of the Silver IT Fest this weekend which has many exciting activities for seniors to learn IT skills and to pick up useful tech tips and tricks.

Looking forward to good sessions of sharing and learning.

We will be running a free workshop for seniors on Tuesday, 23 May, about telling good stories using TinyTap. Click on the link for details and to register.
Look out for more updates and photos after the workshop.
Update [23 May 2017]
The workshop went well with the over 20 participants, and they enjoyed the hands-on segment made possible with the kind loan of iPads.
pauseability was registered with ACRA on 1 May 2007. So, today marks the 10 year milestone.
A good juncture for some reflections, thanksgiving and celebrations. Happy 10th birthday pauseability!
Truly grateful to God for the journey. And to my family, friends, partners and clients, thank you for the wonderful support in all these years.
Looking forward to even more pauseability in the days ahead.

This edition of Artist Trading Card exhibition went beyond our meeting place Bishan Library to Add Tremendous Cheer to some seniors at Sree Narayana Mission Home.
On 1 Apr, we were there at 9 am to make ATCs with them and they were really creative and made many colourful ATCs (more than 60!) and we framed an ATC from each of them to be displayed together with the frames of ATC we brought along from our exhibition. These were then put up outside many of their rooms and also at a common area and we hope these will add some creative cheer to the residents and staff.
This is a fantastic group with very loving heARTs. Thank you for the warm support and sharing your time and art.
What can you do with a doodling-colouring book?
You could create a very special and personalised gift for someone special.
You don’t even need to be able to draw well. Use stickers and colourful tapes, or paste ephemerals like ticket stubs. Photographs can be used too.
If you find words hard to come by, consider finding your favourite quotes or lyrics. Write them or type and print them.
Hide a little surprise like a voucher inside. It could be a voucher for a good hug, or to help wash the dishes. Then wait for it to be claimed.
This could even be done together with that special someone. Get the materials ready and spend some quality time together filling up the book.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Hope these ideas have inspired you.
Our 8-page Travel Doodle-Colour Journal might just be the thing for you. Available as an ebook here at SGD1.60.
