Would you like a cuppa tea, love?

Creator, Founder, Owner of Flowerdrum BagsRina Matsui, recently showcased her exquisite embroidery work at an aptly named exhibition entitled, "About Rina Matsui: 6 Words" at RogueArt Gallery, Kuala Lumpur.

The collection is inspired by 6-word memoirs of 30-something Malaysian women written by Suhana Dewi Selamat, which was featured in "Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure". Rina reinterprets the essays in visual and textural form on everyday things that women see and touch, wear and use in the home.

I wished I had an empty home to place all these lovely embroidery work and retro furniture (courtesy of The Curiosity Shop)

How sexy are screens in your bedroom? It's as sexy as a four-poster bed! I want!

In conjunction with this event, Flowerdrum Bags held an exclusive tea party for all Flowerdrum customers, themed, "Reflecting the retro flavour of Flowerdrum Bags". Many came dressed in their retro/vintage best and they sure looked awesome all dolled up! I love themed parties, always gives me a chance to play dress-up!


Congratulations to Rina and Flowerdrum Bags! Can't wait for the next party! xoxo

Hello Michael Lau. Welcome to Malaysia.

Now, I'm not really a big toy fan except if you count my obsession with Barbie Dolls and My Little Pony when I was 5 a keen interest in toys...

So when I was invited to the MINDstyle LIFEstyle featuring Michael Lau at ZINC Art Space, I was keen to see what Michael Lau was all about. Being Michael's first outing into Malaysia, his fans came in droves and I have never seen so many enthusiasts of this sort in one place! (Now I'm keen to go to a Comic Con just to people watch!)

This exhibition is his very first Malaysia which showcases 10 years of Gardeners and celebrates the vision and creativity of Michael Lau.

The 'Family Tradition Art Exhibition', first time in Malaysia and South East Asia!
