Thank You Emila for this creative "let us spread the love" award. I have become a fan of Emila site lately. She does an amazing work on her varied illustrations. One of her work is here too - the "I am Proud All Malaysia Blogger." Well, she creates another creative work that is the "I love You This Much Award"-with an intention to spread out love to other bloggers. And so there it is (pic above-the red cartoon), but then i just add some doodling of my own and some words, mix them all together using Adobe Illustrator. Ohh, if you are wondering what doodling is about, just continue reading below. Back to love award, I am happy to present Emila award to these people. The honored ones are ida, dbab, roxychicks, abah, didi, bidarlah, bali, abnerd, ourelog, mangosteenskin and ruanmt. Well, dont worry yaa.. this is not another tag homework. Just feels like passing the award. huhu. Anyway, if you feel like passing it along, please give credit to Emila for her creative work yaa. You can do this by following these :
1.You can just copy the award and paste it in your editor box or you can download them into your computer and later upload in your blog.
If you get tagged (and want to play along), write a post with links to blogs that you love,
3. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

Now!! Lets doodle but not about rattan crafts yaa... I stumble upon chrysalis site mentioning about doodling - doing it the..Zentagle way. I like her doodle. Looks cool in its own way. There are few things which i like on her site, that i might give it a try one or two. According to Zentangle site - "We wondered if it was possible to create a simple system so others could enjoy a similar experience. And so began our journey towards discovering this simple and elegant system we call Zentangle." Never have thought that you can doodle yourself into something cool. Zentangle- i assume the word is a combination of two words - Zen and tangle. Zen yourself, like meditating through tangle-like-scribbling or repetitive drawings. You can buy your own starter Kit from Zentangle if you choose to explore your inner creative and critical self. :) Well, it seems that ordering would be too hassle for me, and second, things provided inside the kit are basically things that i always have with me. So, I thought earlier " Why don't i try and see how it goes?"

Taa raaa!!..... so here is my doodle. Hey, i strongly recommend that you should try this on your spare time.
I name mine "CHAOS in Orderly Fashion." I did this yesterday armed with a mug of caffein @ coffee. It took me 30 minutes to fully draw all the repetitive design/ pattern ( if you like to call it). I said to myself, "no matter how it goes, you must not erase but keep on going." No doubt i was really into it. I was focus and in a strange way, it was like some sort of meditating-freeing yourself from your surround world, just concentrating on task at hand. It did help me to stay focus and channel out what was inside me. The drawing was quick, but that black scribbling took me hours to finish. Patient was the key word. I did it section by section, admiring each time i completed one section :) sweat sweat. I decided to use only ink pen for this purpose doodling on my sketch book. So, here it is at last. Doodling is a great way to get creative. Make a few of them and you can frame and hang em on the wall. If you find this to be a bit challenging, I would recommend doing it on a smaller scale - like 10cm x 10cm. Yeahhh.. give it a try and see how it goes. You might end up with a surprise. As for me, where does it lead from here? hehe (evil grin), One thing for sure,
tomorrow, 13 students of mine will be getting the same task as i had before. Well, hopefully there will be a second part in which i ll post their zen-like-doodling. Cheers and hepi blogging yaa. Oh btw, do post and let me know if you happen to do this.

Doesnt matter from which country they are. Much easier that way. There are many good malaysian blogs too by the way. :)
