Kick Start 2015 !

Hi All,

We have been with our family in Malaysia for the past 3 weeks celebrating the new year 2015. Also, this trip back to Penang, I have had the most wonderful moments accompanying my niece to her first week in primary school. A new stage for her to start exploring a whole new world. My parents and I were at her school every recess. Happy to see her smile.

My parents with my niece. Happy! 
And now, I am back in Gold Coast. Continuing my journey. As you guys might have noticed I have not been painting for awhile. Yes, I miss painting so much but I have been tied up with my day job. Eng and I have been putting our mind in designing and creating light boxes and lighting for Bingkai and FATRoo. After moving to Gold Coast, we have decided to run our business purely online, turning our garage into a home studio. Also, Bingkai and FATroo is now selling via Etsy. Please check us out if you are on Etsy: -->

Time and effort spent is worthwhile, Eng and I are very happy with the result. We have been getting heaps of orders not only from local but overseas. And, we are getting lots of custom order request for light boxes. FATRoo lighting also is gaining good response although it is just 3 months old. Our pendant and lighting table stands have been delivered to UK, Spain, Norway, German ... in the past months.

2015 would be one challenging year and I am sure it's a GOOD ONE! Bring It On! 

Wishing everyone a healthy joyful year! Keep your mind smile and keep creating!

Everything Feel So Good!

Hi All

Wishing you a beautiful morning!

Things are shaping up slowly and we are feeling good!

First to share is I sold my original peacock textured acrylic painting, "Flourish" over the weekend. And am totally flattered with the comments from the buyers :

"Wow. I just love it. Thank you so much. Your so clever. Kindest regards Karen"
and on Etsy review, Karen has also wrote me a beautiful review:
"Very fast delivery. Well wrapped. The picture has exceeded my expectations. Its exquisite. Can't wait to buy another. This artist is very talented."
That is the best return to get when you paint and someone somewhere just told you how they love it!

And, next to share is, we are having our spare room listed up on AirBnb.com.au. We have been using airbnb service for most our travel, like their motto saying "Go anywhere, stay for less!". So if you are traveling in near future and look into planning a unique experience why not hop over to airbnb.  Here is Airbnb $28 credit for you to spend --> www.airbnb.com.au/c/cteoh1

And if you are interested in checking up our room here are some photos to share with you: 

For the first two weeks, we have been having travelers booked in from Singapore and my hometown Malaysia coming to stay with us. Welcome to our little home.

And, last to share for now is our little home studio, which is still taking its time to shaping up.

There's much much more going on, we're overwhelmed! 

And hope you've enjoyed my post, please share your thoughts with me.

Guess What?! ... We're Moving to GOLD COAST, Queensland!

After 1 year and 10 months in Geelong, we are moving again! Though I love living in Geelong, but it's time to move on for the next stage of life.

Seems like 3 years in Australia, we have stayed in 3 different states. Start with ACT, Victoria and now Queensland.

We have chosen Gold Coast in Queensland. I think its beauty of nature and relaxed lifestyle would suit us. Have been visiting Brisbane, but not sure if we could cope with the busy city life.

Eng has been started getting some sub-contracting job in Gold Coast and leaving me alone here in Geelong. How easy he just get by .. haa.. always be the clever one.  Here I am alone packing and packing and packing in 10/12 Cedar Grove, Highton; selling most of our furniture and keep only personal effects, some really old albums, books, my artworks and Bingkai's collections. Which we are going to fit all in Belingo! hmm.. I am still cracking my head on how to make this possible. Eng will be back on the 23/8 to join me. Finalizing on our lease here, then we will be making a big drive from Geelong to Gold Coast.

Oh yes, last weekend I have a little walk from Rutland Street to Pakington Street. Looking back on how Bingkai started and moved out from Rutland St. Heart feel sinking ... though the move means another good start but still it is hard ..

So Bingkai Geelong is all starts here. ..  this number to call.

And.. Bingkai last seen here in Rutland Street, Newtown, Geelong.

And next ... we will be in Gold Coast! 

New photo to be posted soon ...
