Whenever I’m leaving the house for work or coming back from work, White Star will spot me first – he usually hiding underneath the cars or chilling at the back of the void deck area (the backyard of the apartment). He will follow me to the seat area – climb to my lap and waiting for me to pat him, he always knead on my lap and meow at the same time, I know boy – you must be missing the whole day right, you need someone to just hug you and tell you stop wondering outside.
The story of white star – he was also known as Lion that is how my neighbours called him. hmm I still prefer to call him white star. He has been a fighter in this neighbourhood since he was little. Few of my neighbours tried to bring him back but he will just wonder off to the void decks, I guess he misses all his different friends in the neighbourhood. You will see this Indian uncle giving him tummy rub, this Malay auntie giving him treats and posing for anyone who wants to take his picture, he is our community ambassador. He is also the ice breaker among other neighbours – we talk about his whereabout, his affair among other couple (lol – he was mistook as girl once as he look just too cute), he is belong to our community.
White star asking me how is my day and where have I been doing…!

Trying out slightly different shape for a easy getaway pouch, simple and modern take.
It’s been a busy month during the entire May, with my current work demand and thoughts on getting the work done. I start to forget what I used to truly enjoyed most, cat, sewing, photography and creativity input. I always find it amazing at all those outstanding creativity people, how they manage their time and their creativity output.
I stop to blog about cats when Charlie was missing, we have been searching him for quite a while till my sis convinced me that Charlie should be adopted by a kind soul… right till that I saw this cat whom resemble of Charlie, it strike me that I should not stop and I should continue for what I truly loved…
I went to search for my inspiration with cats and anything about cats and found this talented illustrator who is based in Singapore – he drew wonderful illustration with encouraging poems and heart warming sentences. I went to support his event with Asian Festive of Children’s Content and bought his set of postcards. Because of him, I also discovered this cool book store Grassroot Book Room (草根书室) and pick up this book titled Tabineko Report by Arikawa Hiro, it’s a book about a cat’s report of a wonderful world. with all the connection about cats – the creativity flow within the universe.

He was running around the area, from the Malay family to the nearby car park, kind of worried that he will dash to the main road and hit by the car (AGAIN), read Charlie’s story here.
Sadly, it’s been weeks since I last saw him… I hope the best for him, probably someone who find him cute and decide to bring him home.
