โ€œThis collaboration with Nala Designs is a sensible 1๏ธโƒฃ because they are passionate about creating Malaysian๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ-inspired artwork that is vibrant & eye๐Ÿ‘€-catching, but more importantly capable of inspiring individuals๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ This is parallel to what Dulux ๐ŸŽจ advocates.

Scheers ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ผ said: โ€œColours ๐ŸŽจ play an important role in our daily lives & a great way to make use of colours ๐ŸŽจ is to paint ๐Ÿ–Œ, regardless of the canvas. However, painting is somewhat underappreciated today because many think of it is time-consuming & frankly inconsequential ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Photo 08-06-2018, 6 04 53 PM.jpg

To change this mindset, we have collaborated with Dulux ๐ŸŽจ to showcase the power of colours ๐ŸŽจ through the painting of walls โ€“ not only is this the most impactful way, itโ€™s also 1๏ธโƒฃ of the most affordable. Itโ€™s impactful in the sense that colours can change the way the space you live in looks like, especially when you begin playing around with textures. The colour ๐ŸŽจ of your walls can also affect your mood๐Ÿ˜‰โ—๏ธโ€

Photo 08-06-2018, 6 03 22 PM.jpg

โ€œTo us, colour ๐ŸŽจ is everything & thatโ€™s 1๏ธโƒฃ way we try to distinguish ourselves in the creative industry โ€“ by creating products that not only sport eye๐Ÿ‘€-catching designs, but showcase our passion for colour๐ŸŽจโ€ She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ผ added

So many matters happened since 6 May when SiennyLovesDrawing has rushed back from her working tripsss to attend 2 friends’ wedding ceremonies supposedly (meant to be a surprise to both of her friends). However, early morning of 6 May, received a phone call that her big uncle (mama’s family) has passed away

Sigh…Whole family members then rushed to Pahang to be with the big uncle’s family, helped for the wake preparation & attendance till 8 May. She really missed this big uncle so much as since young, he always bought him books & stationeries whenever he came to KL to visiting her family back then.

May you rest in peace, “dua gu” (big uncle in Hokkien dialect)

Then, rushed back to KL as whole family went for #GE14 #509 as a responsible Malaysians
