Little Things 225 : 2016 Compilation


It's the final week of 2016 !
Here is the compilation of 2016 goals achieved and failed, as I do this yearly to remind myself that some things in life matters, even how small it is and years from now, I'll remember this moment when I compile all this every final week of the year. Plus, never trust your hard drive to keep data, if you want anything permanent, go to the internet :F


*

1. Read 29 books in a year.
This year I only managed to read 20 books - that includes a lot of audio books when I was working and graphic novels. So I cheated a bit :D I've been a little preoccupied with a lot of things lately.

Result : I failed ! Only 20 books instead of my 29 books goal. 

2017 Goal : 30 books :F
Note : Thank God there are a lot of new books by my favorite writers that I'm waiting to buy next year. I'll try to read more next year, InsyaAllah. 

*

2. Run 365 km in a year

Yes, I managed to reach my second running goal this year! My first goal was to reach 250km, and I reached that in September. I upgraded the goal into 365km total distance afterwards and I also reached that number too.

Result : 365km, reached !

2017 Goal : Perhaps 450 km? Everyone suggested me to reduce my running activities if I'm TTC, but if I do the math and attitude right, 450km is just around 7km per week and that is still super noob and not hard-core at all - so perhaps, maybe? :F

*

3. Exploration : Osaka + Kyoto
I had to postpone the Japan exploration to bring my whole family early next year as promised. The tickets were already bought in last August, the Airbnb house has been booked, InsyaAllah in February 2017 we are going on a family holiday. They are coming with Af & me for a week, and both of us will extend another week exploring together afterwards. 

Result : This year we went to Indonesia for a run and Singapore for an event.

2017 Goal : Osaka + Kyoto, a run in Indonesia again (?) and another event in Singapore (?)

*

4. Be a Freelancer + Chief Designer
I have this hard-to-achieve goal that is working as a full-time freelancer, but I only managed to try it out for 6 months. The first phase was the first 3 months, and I continued until the 6th month, before a startup in Cyberjaya asked me to join them : as a Chief Designer. I followed the course of the written path because I believe in the 'flow', so I joined them *plus the pay is good, they bought me with money and big ideas :F It has been around 4 months since I worked there, we are launching soon. 

I still dream of going full-time free illustrator, but for now, I just signed a 1 year contract with them. So mayybe later, we'll see in a year?

Result : I did tried to be a freelancer for 6 months, and I am now a Chief Designer. Alhamdulillah

2017 Goal : Survive the daily work and 1 more year as a permanent in-house designer. I can't believe that I am still working full-time :F

*

5. Ptptn
I have another RM 20,000 education loan ! Look how far I've crawled :D When I first started it was RM 38,000 and 5 years later I can see a big reduction, I paid almost half of it. Takpe, I'll pay faster after this, I'll try.

*

Others personal stuffs :

Favorite song :
I'm still in love with this song by Maggie Rogers : Alaska even after I first heard it several months. It's my go-to exploration anthem, the song I always heard when I think about my undying day-dream of freedom and places far from home.


Favorite book :
Yes, I only read 20 books this year, among those 20 books, my favorite one this year is Albert Camus's The Stranger.

Favorite series :
I watched a lot of series this year thanks to iFlix ! :D 
UnReal, Younger, Grey's Anatomy, 2 Broke Girls, And there was none, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Gilmore Girls Revival, Scandal, and several more series that I only managed to watch a bit but didn't continue due to the boring first few hours. I never watched this much series, but I'm in front of the computer a lot. Every time I had to prepare stickers or do digital illustration, I turn on my iFlix. My favorite one this year : Scandal by Shonda Rhimes

Favorite song of my life :
Even though I watched Moana when I was half-asleep after we taught those 30 little kids, I remember this song clearly : How Far I'll Go by Auli'i Cravalho. This song tells exactly how I felt since I was 15, when I was still the strong-willed passionate girl that talks about travelling like it was all that matters in the world.  Of course, 30 years later I'm still here. I know I've been to many places, and I'm thankful for that, but you have no idea how even after all these year, the fire is still there calling me to just let go all things permanent and walk away. I have her heart, we wore the same explorer's patch :D But not voyagers - I hate water.  


*

Big note : I'm reaching 30 in a week ! 
I'm expecting a lot of awesome books *even though I chose the books myself , Japanese cheese cake and new excuse to buy myself a birthday day. 

Video : Etsy Made Local 2016


Af finally compiled the video he took at the previous Etsy Made Local event - read the post here. Thaaaaank you Etsy team and also to Af who has been right at my side in every events + activities I participated since we got married. 


These final months in 2016 had been great, fun, busy and exciting, I joined an event at Public Garden Singapore, with Etsy Made Local and also Rantai 10th year anniversary. I also taught a doodle class to children for school holiday program and almost reach 100 orders in my Etsy this year alone. T^T

This was a great year, thank you guys

Tiny Thoughts : All things random in my life


  • Writing : Other than my personal blog, I write as a Chief Designer of Fin.my at : Fin's Medium , although I have my own personal Medium as well but I haven't write anything except replying to Mike Posner's post and liking other people's articles on weekly basis. Note : I write at Medium when I put on my nerd hat.     
  • Data : My new hard disk, Mr Buffalo *barely 4 months where I kept all data : works, projects, portfolios, inspiration, writings, downloaded vectors and pictures taken since 2009, was having hard time performing since it fell down flat on the floor. I tried to copy all the files *worth 200gb for the longest 5 weeks before any of my computers can no longer detect it. I went to the shop again with the hard disk and the receipt so they can send it back to the factory to get it fixed *3 years warranty and the guy said that all files were corrupted - with no luck in retrieving anything. In 2 minutes, he wiped out all the data when I said 'ok'. 2 short freakin' minutes. So I lost all pictures, the ones that I kept since 2009. What did I learned from this? I should have at least 2 backups, not 1 & don't ever trust ONLY ONE DEVICE to keep all your data - ever, and print out pictures that I want to keep for the future. T^T 
  • Books : New books coming up (they are still fresh on shelves, not even in paperback edition yet): The Spy by Paulo Coelho, Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak, Absolutely on Music by Haruki Murakami, The Magic String of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom, Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. I'm going to buy all these books once they are available in paperback version, or should I really consider to convert to e-book reader on Kindle (?). This year I only managed to read : 20 books only ! - this includes a lot of audio books and graphic novels, so I cheated !
  • Series : And have you watched Gilmore Girls revival ? I've waited 9 years for this T^T I missed them so dearly, so I didn't waited long to watch the whole 4 hours short series after they were released. It felt more like a new series just about to come out than a continuation of the old series. Not sure whether I'm still in Team Jess or whether I should think like a 30-year old now and be in Logan's team. When I was much younger, I know I would opt for Jess over and over but now I'm older, I'm a bit realistic when it comes to the choice of father-husband material. Ha.

  • 30 days challenge : My current challenge is to digitize everything in my sketch book for at least 1 page, daily. By the end of my 30 days challenge, I should at least have enough for my first printed zine. I still have time for my Saturn returns !! :F

Random : Spooky Art Swap by Aviva

Image from Alexia's Twitter
So for my Spooky Swap created by none-other-than the famous tumblr : Aviva Artzy last October, I sent my parcel to another awesome illustrator called Alexia Bee. Aviva contacted me and asked whether I was interested to join the arts swap *there was a lot of super-faaaamous illustrators and artists, and I loooove arts swap, so I said yes, yes, yes. 

Here I just noticed that Alexia posted the stuffs she received from me 
Her original post :

Awesooooome !

Note : But I haven't received my parcel :F (yet)
This is sooo sad, I want to put a padlock to my post box from now on !

Events : Doodle Your Day with Azreenchan


Well it was not really an event, it was just a day with me and a bunch of kids.

In October, I was emailed by someone from one of UPM's faculty : Faculty of Design & Architecture for a "whole day - school kids program" to teach doodling. I'm always up for new things, even though I never really had any experience teaching kids - so I just said yes. I was nervous, but the experience matters, or how else will I learn to do it? 

The week of the event day, I prepared the simplest doodle module that I could think of to teach younger audience. I managed to prepare an eight-page basic doodle materials, and printed it out at Serdang. It was just the easiest thing - *at least that was what I thought lah.

*

The doodle class started around 930 am after all the kids arrived and registered for the class. There were around 30 students ranging from the youngest : 6 years old to the oldest : 13 years old. They received a sketch book and morning meals from the organizer, while I brought all the printed material, colourful markers and magic colour.

The basic : Dots & Lines

*

All the little things

I gave out some name label stickers for all the kids to put on their clothes, so it's easy for me to learn their names if I need to. I passed the doodle module around and gave basic introduction before letting them doodle it out according to the module.

The name labels on clothes & doodle book

*

Determined one : she wanted to finish all the patterns, she kept coming for this page.

In the class, we tried learning the basic doodling from my module, doodle your face and your friend's face, doodle a pattern that can be used as a frame, doodle pattern types on a label sticker so they can stick it in their doodle book, and doodle on an empty file holder that they can bring back. All doodle and colouring for the whole 5-6 hours.

Here I found an interesting findings from the class :
  • The age gap was big, meaning their learning process was quite different : 6-8 years old can be grouped together, and 9-13 can be in a different group. Younger kids take more time and attention than bigger kids, they like to show me their updates and needed approval for next steps. Bigger kids do as they like, mostly faster and without any orders. There are pro and cons of both approach : if all the kids sit together, they won't mix around with one another and the older kids won't be having a chance of helping the younger kids - this is what I thought, so I let them sit where ever they wanted. But, next time I will try the other option of letting the younger kids sit together so it will be easy for me to teach some of them with more attention, and let the bigger ones explore more things to do in their own group with less supervision. 
  • Each kid was unique and different. Some don't want me to see, some need all the attention, some got distracted every few minutes, some don't want to cooperate, some are so easy.
  • 30 kids in a class is too big especially if there are younger students. Preferable around 15-20 students per class so I can sit with them at their desk to show each process step by step, instead of teaching at the white board. 
  • Looooong hours with 2 mini recess is still too long. I need to shorten the class's duration next time. Kids are so easy to get distracted and bored.
  • You've heard about "not letting kids eat sugary stuffs, to avoid them getting hyper & super active" ? Well, it was reaaaaaaal. After morning break, they turned into a bunch of hyper-active uncontrollable kids, from such a nice silent little angels in the early morning. I had to shout and wave around to get their attention. 
*

Easy-peasy, right?

Doodle anything you want on your file holder


The oldest boy : One of the easiest, and he is already a doodler *bonus point !

*

The class looked something like the image below. 
They were separated into 3 long desks, so hard to give full attention to all the groups as they sit so far apart. Now I understand how teachers in class feel about teaching younger audience in a big class :


It's so hard to not have any favorites because some of the kids are super darlings and cute , while some are divas and a bit of a drama-queens/kings, I'm not sure how to tolerate seeing I don't have kids of my own yet - I shouldn't complain. But every time I got a 'tough' moment, I stared at AF with my arched eye-brows.   

Cute ones !

*

Event's poster :

Anyhow, this was a very useful and great experience. 
For any possible doodle/illustration class next time, do contact me : azreen_31@hotmail.com

*

Later after the class, Af booked for a movie : Moana at IOI city mall, but we both dozed off all through the movie - especially me! The song keep repeating afterwards, but I can hardly remember the story clearly. I guess I was really exhausted spending the whole days with  a bunch of energetic kids =.=

Events : Art/Craft Booth's Price List 2016

Note : Future team member, please read the note down below.

If you are planning on joining events or opening a booth in the near future, and you are an independent small artists/illustrators with no budget and doing this just for fun. You need to know the price range, so here I compiled the price range for this year's event that I asked around :
  • Ilovebazaar , BTS Handmade Market : RM 80 per day ✓
  • Market 18, Jaya One : RM 400 for 2 days ✘
  • Malaysia Hobby Expo : RM 250 for 2 days ✓ * I got for free, because I sponsored huge doodle
  • Public Garden Consumer Trade Show : $200 for 2 days ✓
  • STGCC Singapore : $700 for 2 days ✘
  • Junk-ed Makers Market : RM 60 - 70 per day ✓
  • Etsy Made Local : RM 80 per day ✓
  • Indonesia Comic Con : RM 1,200 for 2 days ✘
  • Rantai Art Festival : RM 300 for 2 days ✓ - shared booth with my sister
The symbol : ✓ are the events that I decided to join, and the symbols ✘ are for events that I asked/emailed and were too shocked when I heard about the fees, and cancelled it. Ha. 

Personally for me, my budget is maximum RM 100 per day. Usually if the day is good, I receive around RM 250 per day, and the day is not so good, I'd probably only get less than RM 50. Rugi beso. The highest sales I ever received was around RM 600, and the lowest was RM 8. I sell mostly stickers that range from RM 1 - RM 14, so it isn't much lah. 

But why do I joined events tho? If I know the sales are sometimes bad, the crowds are sometimes close to none, the booths are super expensive or the people are just too snobbish ? Why oh why I keep on putting myself in that position that makes me regret the whole idea of being in this society? 

Love and passion. Of course, I can always opt for Etsy sells and focus on international market alone. But no, I believe in sharing what I love to do. Especially with people here in Malaysia, I still want to feel the connection instead on just ignoring the whole crowd and merajuk bawa diri and go find places where I feel belonged. I want to inspire, I want to open your eyes and let you see the future chance of doing something you like as a career. But then, kelakar lah kan if I say that my small independent business blooms and successful - no. I mean that by doing this, by having this small hobby turned into a working skill, you can go to so many places.

Huge chances, new clients, higher salary, better income :F

Other option :
  • You can share the art/craft booth with your like-minded friend
  • Send an email with portofolio/online shop to me : azreen_31@hotmail.com , I'm searching for future team members for international events collaboration. So under one team, we can go to places to join arts/crafts events. But I need to find people from : illustration or unique crafty product makers lah. And people who want to go faaaaaaar and love to backpack and okay with our introvertness, because we can get super awkward - you have no idea. Mihmihmih.

Run : My First Half-Marathon & All the Firsts


Happy year for my aim to keep healthy throughout the year :
  • I ran over 343km, almost reaching my upgraded goal of reaching 365km this year.
  • I did my first international run in Bromo, Indonesia
  • I did my first trail run in Bromo as well
  • I ran my first 21km - half marathon 
Trying to keep running every week is still hard. But I'm trying to at least run during the weekend. I think by far, this is year that I had so many injuries : muscle strain along the shoulder and the neck for 2 weeks, left knee injury that lasted for 2 months because of the wrong squatting technique and on-going right ankle injury that happened 2 weeks ago. Compared to all the previous years I spent on outdoor activities, this years I am not so lucky with my condition. But I survived ! :D


*

How I decided on running a half-marathon when I already told myself that I won't do it?
I became so used to running 10km in my weekly training that I feel like I want to try 21km. The thing about running 10km in the weekend, after awhile, my body got used to the same pace and boring paths that I try to explore in so many different ways. I usually spend around 1 hour 20 minutes in each weekly training while Af went on doing his parkour training. So it gets a bit lonely sometimes. In each session : 5 times around the pond, 5 times up the training hill, 5 times down the training hill, 5 x 2 times zig-zag alongside of the stairs, and finishing around the pond. It became a boring repetition.

So I decided to try something new. I wanted to feel the exhaustion and the thrill and disappointment and sweats and muscle pain that I used to feel. I registered for the half-marathon at Putrajaya Night Marathon, and asked my brother to join as well.

The training :
I started one and a half month before the event. I managed to run around 100km in the past 3 months before my 21 KM half marathon. It was just a normal training mostly on weekends because I get so busy in the weekdays there's no time to go for a run. That's all, nothing special. Just weekly run. 2 weeks before the run I stopped my running because I had several injuries and muscles pain that won't go away : alongside the neck and shoulder, and my right ankle. I wanted to give my body a full rest and faster recovery lah konon. 

I tried Salon Pas patches, I tried putting cold packs, I tried daily simple stretches, nothing seemed to work. Like all my injuries, I had to let time heals and rest.

Preparation :
I bought 2 sachets of fruity energy gel - one for me and one for my brother *for RM 7. For whatever it was, the energy gel should give you some some energy for your run. It actually works just like eating a banana - but I thought that the organizer will then pass us some bananas, might as well keep something for plan B when my energy drains out.

Here is the map :


*

Weather :
It started with a light rain, everything got soaky before we even started running.
So the wet feeling in our shoe all through the running was real =.=
But the night weather was great, I wanted to try my first long endurance run at night compared to in the hot daylight because I hated the sun and I don't want any sun-burn :D

Here is an image before we started running, all soaky and wet because of the rain + a photobomber behind us *hello! :


*

The run :
I divided my run into 3 parts :

Hour 1 : I survived on water and 100 plus, I sipped water at every stations because I don't know how I'm going to pull thing off and how long I might take. My rough estimation was around 3 hours+ for my first 21km. The first hour was okay, I did this many times.

Hour 2 : KM 14
I ate the energy gel every 15 minutes, after 2 hours of running. 1 sipped at a time, so it lasted for an hour. The second hour was also okay, because my pace is slow constant pace I don't think I had anything much in mind. I managed to keep on my jogging pace all through 2 hours+ of running. I parted with my brother in KM 13 when he started having muscle cramps every few minutes.

Hour 3 : KM 19
I kept the banana from the organizer until my third hour, and later I ate it every 15 minutes. The banana lasted for 1 more hour. After the third hour, I had nothing else but water stations. The pain started after KM 16, that's when my body seemed to shout and scream to stop. All joints on my legs were in pain and I started asking why did I registered for this in the first place ? I forgot what happened in KM 17 - 21, because all I remembered was I keep telling my body to keep on my jogging pace. Ish ish, why laa kan.

Then I reached the finishing line after 3 hours : 31 minutes, it was a bit surreal. I was groggy, I saw my brother whom reached the line 11 minutes before me : I wonder when did he passed me? But everything afterwards was all moody and pukey and I-just-want-to-sit-and-not-talk state. All pictures taken afterwards was not voluntarily taken and I can't even smile.

*

Result :

Number : 573/770
Official Time : 3 hours 31 minutes 
*Just 11 minutes away from my brother

*

Things I learned from my first 21 km :
  • Training and practices are important. 
  • Carbo-load should start 5 days before the run
  • After some time, music isn't something I want to listen to. Just-complete-silence and the sound of footsteps.
  • Yes, it was painful after it reached certain distance. But it isn't too bad afterwards.
  • Man, I still love running.

After math :
On that Sunday after the night of running 21km - I opened a booth at Etsy Made Local for the whole day. Right after Sunday, I went to work like usual. On Monday at work I walked funny, all muscles in my body were in pain. But it took around 3 days to recover. By that next weekend, I went on my weekly training back again.

Am I going to do this again? 
Are you kidding? For all the sweats and pain and ridiculous state of mind ? 
Or course I'm going to do this again :D

Mini Escapism : Rimba & Rusa


A little splurge on fancy food and place. 
We went to Rimba & Rusa after we wrapped things up at Etsy Made Local, because the sales was good I wanted to treat AF with a nice dinner. He helped me so much these past 2 weekends.

I knew about the place because of Wondermilk & Hello Dear. As a designer, I am a big fan of their designing team : be it from the marketing point of view, or interior design or branding itself. Every single things from them are inspiring and worth Pinned ! You can stalk them IG or even facebook account, worth every likes. They are really good in designing :



*
Location :
The place is located just 11 minutes from Battery Acid Club, it was really close by, if not because of the traffic. We used Waze to go there, here is the map :


From their IG :


*

The food :
I ordered Ciao Carbonara (RM27) & Af ordered Pulled Beef Mac & Cheese (RM22), we shared a pressed juice of Pink Power (RM14) and mineral water (RM2.50), it totalled around RM 70 after GST. Expensive? Of course it was, I would be lying if I say it was all affordable - because I cook fresh foods everyday, I can say this totalled up to 10 days of home-made cooking for two. But I wanted to spend it on the place, because of my appreciation towards the obvious hard-work they did on the restaurant and because we worked hard these past 2 weeks :D 




*

The interior






*

Things I took home :
Along all the inspiring photos of the place and the designs, I took the paper coaster before the drips of water fell on it and also the golden sticker of Rimba & Rusa on the bottled water we ordered. All added in my journal.


*

Events : Etsy Made Local & Battery Acid Club


Etsy Made Local : 
This event was also a random tryouts for me. I applied and I got a place to open a booth on the Sunday from the 2 days event. I was really excited because I really like Etsy, and I was hoping that the Etsy community will be supportive and like-minded.

I was right! The crowd was the best, this is one of my favorite event so far. 

I sold so many sticker packs and postcards, some greeting cards and bags. People didn’t stop coming, even though by 3pm the weather changed from a hot sweaty afternoon to a heavy thunderstorm. But the thing was, even though it rained heavily people still keep on coming and buying things :D


*

The organizer & location :
I also like the big orange banner and the Etsy's free stickers and the posters and the little cafe : Battery Acid Club that uses a lot of my own Pinterest-inspired stuffs that I pinned! Especially the part with small-sized tiles for the kitchen top and their beautiful white and black toilet. A very well-designed place. So inspiring *taken from the IG :


The map :



I took 3 of Etsy stickers from the organizer, because I really want to stick them in my journal - even though they said one person can only take one, ha ! I also received my Etsy namecard and a sticker saying "Ask me About my Etsy Shop". Isn't this amazing? All customized items for all vendors - never had this much fun and appreciation at any events.

Love the detailing. Love the chatty friendly organizers.



Things I put in my journal :



*

The vendors :
I bought some stuffs from other illustrator called "Sukka Project". I really like her own unique stroke so I bought a hand-made small pouch bag - I kinda want the postcard as well, but it was hand-made and was quite pricy for me :( All the items were silk-screened onto fabric and paper, some of the items were paper-marched into a unique characters. They told me that they are joining Rantai 2016 as well, and I asked them to produce more art prints. Ha :D



*

I also met Diawangan for the first time. She is one of my client - I designed her company's logo. I personally quite like the cute logo of the cloud and smiley face. Kak Zila brought her son and husband along. I greeted her and stopped by at her booth, but I didn't buy any items from her : she sells handmade nursery items :)


*

Near to my booth was Eleanor,'s workshop, a designer and a calligraphy artist. There were a bunch of people learning calligraphy all through the day, I wanted to greet and talk to her but she seemed a bit busy teaching. This is her takes on the event day.




Other vendors :








I think I should try to make friendly greets to everyone after this, ask around, get to know people, perhaps interview some of the vendors to write about them. For that, I need a lot of caffeine in the morning and a mental set that the day will be extra exhausting but worth it. I should also prepare for a set of questions. Hm.

*

Outcome :
Sales : RM 623
- Booth rent : RM 80
- Lunches & Dinner : RM 100 (Dinner at Rimba&Rusa, coffee at Battery Acid Club, KFC for fast lunch)
- Gas & Tolls : RM 40+
The best sales so far in the past almost 30 booths at various events.

Events : Junk-ed Maker's Market, Wisma Central

The last 2 weekend were spent at different events : 1. Junked Makers’ Market in Wisma Central, Jalan Ampang near KLCC and another one 2. Etsy Made Local, at Battery Acid Club in PJ. Both were a one-day event.



*

The day started early in the morning on Saturday - we both drove to KL almost late because the event was supposed to start at 10am and we went out quite late to buy the tiles to make the kitchen top at my apartment. So we used GPS and took MEX highway to avoid the unwanted traffic, I did a double check on the flat-rate parking fees at Avenue K : RM 5 for the whole day which seemed the most affordable and nearest one considering we were staying for the whole day. The items were all packed in 3 big bags that were easy to bring for a short walk across the road.

Little lights all over the event :


*

Junked Makers’ Market :
The event was located at Level 2, Wisma Central - the place that we sometimes go to print stuffs in the city. When I arrived at the place, the organizer greeted me. She recognized me immediately - she then ushered me to my booth. A nice booth located by the end of the corridor, next to the bigger space where people give talks and created art installation. There were little LED lights along the corridor : on the floor and on the ceiling, the place was a bit dark and not so good for business as people can't see clearly all the items on the desk - I wish I brought a desk lamp, but it was cozy and comfortable, macam tempat lepak2. Especially when they played a nice playlist of : the XX, Mew, Artic Monkey, etc all through the event. 

Note : This was also why I didn't take any photos for the event, the lighting was quite bad :F 
Here I took snapshots from Af's videos :





*

The vendors :
The event was a really small event with not more than 15 vendors, in conjunction with a cafe’s launching and several talks of the day about 3D printing and laser cutting. I met one of the artist that I really like the intenet : Syarifah Nadhirah. She does a really nice soft-coloured watercolour painting that I’ve come to like from her society6 account. So I bought two of her printed postcards : one of it was a picture of lime and lemon collection, and another one was a drawing of artichokes. I already put inside my journal. Oh, I also asked for her signature. I make that a habit - every time I buy postcard or art prints from artists or designers, I make sure I ask for their signature. As a token of a short awkward meetups. I will try better next time !


The organizers :
They also have a really nice friendly organizers. I felt a bit old, seeing this kids managing stuffs and all. But I also felt their strong vibes that I used to feel when I started my early years at events and booths. So it was a nice reminder :)

*

The video highlight :
Like always, video highlight was made by AF, 
please contact him for any projects regarding videos :



*
Outcome :
Sales : RM 200
- Booth rent : RM 60
- Parking : RM 5
- Foods of the day : RM 70
- Car : RM 30
My sales was not so great, just enough to pay the rent, eat lunches and dinner at IKEA and some extra more. The event was not too hectic and busy, people were friendly and supportive, just not so many crowds as I wish it would. 

Here is the poster I made for the event :

*

Here's a map of Prototype Gallery :
