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

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€

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

Bravo! AkzoNobel brings life in a new light to Autistic students!

Mr. Indra Laban, General Manager ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผof AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Malaysia has thanked Malaysiaโ€™s renowned colour therapist๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, Ms. Evelyn Leong on her collaboration with AkzoNobel working alongside Duluxโ€™s Colour Consultants to provide the colour schemes to create a better learning environment for both students & teachers.

Mr. Indra further elaborated that there are visual, symbolic, synesthetic, emotional, physiological & psychological effects of colours. AkzoNobel strongly believes that colours are vital in uplifting mood and will bring positive effects to peopleโ€™s lives & the importance of the right environment in the vocational centre to bring out the best in student ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“ & teachers ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

Ms. Evelyn Leong, colour therapist ( https://www.colourzwork.com/about-us ) explains, โ€œIt is great to see AkzoNobel has constantly striving to improve the communities & people through the power of colours.โ€

Sharing some of the interesting facts about colours learnt from the event,

  • It influences peopleโ€™s attitudes, grabs attention & evokes feelings.
  • Colour can have such transforming & uplifting effect on people & places.
  • It can promote both physical & mental relaxation as well as reducing stress.
  • Inspirational colours can be very effective in learning settings.

Sharing some facts about the puzzle ribbon learnt from the event,

  • This puzzle ribbon was adopted in 1999 as the universal sign of Autism Awareness
  • It reflects the complexity of the Autism Spectrum
  • The different colours & shapes represent the diversity of the people & families living with the condition
  • The brightness of the ribbon signals hope that through increased awareness of autism, early intervention & access to appropriate services/ supports

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is one of the fastest growing &ย life-long developmental disability that affects the functioning of the brain, thus impairing social interaction & communication skills, which makes it difficult for them to relate & communicate with others. People who have autism are also more likely to experience sensitivities in the 5 senses i.e. sight, hearing, touch, taste & smell.

As an autistic person, they tend to be more sensitive with their senses & the colours used in the vocational centre are mostly in shades of pastel with low stimulation. Each of the rooms in the centre is painted with a different colour to create different moods e.g. the staff room is painted light pink to further harness loving & compassionate teachers/ personnel; orange is used on the walls near the kitchen/ dining area to stimulate creative activities.

โ€œOur students spend an average of 8 hours a day in the centre & it is important for us to provide a conducive environment for them to learn & grow. We are thankful to both AkzoNobel & Evelyn Leong to help transform our vocational training centre, to assist in livening up using the power of colour to provide a better learning space for our studentsโ€, saysย Feilina Feisol, Chairman of NASOM.

Everyone of us can contribute & make a difference to the autism community. You may help to support autism education, awareness, advocacy, research & families living with autism viaย http://www.nasom.org.my/autism/

A memorable tyres painting weekend with the little artistsย 

A fun weekend with some little artists to paint old tyres in a small village.

All the painted tyres will then be used for planting purposes. So the coming weekend, all the little artists will become little gardeners๐Ÿ˜Š

The little artists were having great fun during the old tyres painting. They shared & mixed the paint allocated among themselves.

Hmm..All of us were more tiring in the cleaning process after the tyres painting.

Paint is not watercolour. However, the little artists were simply treated the paint just the same way as watercolor๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜

The cleaning process with them took much longer as compared to their old tyres painting. We have used the thinner to remove the paint stain on their little fingers, hands, legs and feet. Then, with soap wash for a final clean up.

Old tyres = recycle idea

It is important to teach the kids with some recycle concept now.

I am being invited by an event organiser to facilitate a kids doodle workshop soon. It will be using recycle idea too. Do stay tune for my sharing then.

#medinidoodlemania Day 2, completed!

Decided to have black and white “why fishes” for Day 2. 

While I was doodling my fishes yesterday, I have enjoyed some of my short conversations with the public ppl.

“Wow..see the fishes so cute, mummy…” 

When I turned to the little girl, she actually shown me the naughty facial expression that I drawn on each fish to greet me. Ha..Ha..She is an adorable girl that melted my heart๐Ÿ˜‹

“So many fishes here!”

I turned to the little boy & asked him “How many?”. He counted & said “7”. I replied “Hmm..no..no..You wanna try again?” Then he got it & said “There are 8 fishes”. This time his daddy asked him “Where got 8?” The little boy walked closer to my artwork & pointed the fish on top of my artwork to his daddy, “See daddy..that’s a fish which only shown the tongue.” Ha..Ha..

While I bold the “Why” wording, a lady stood behind me then asked “Why?” I gave her a smile. I should have asked her to read my blog so that she knows “Why?” Ha..Ha..

There were lots of public ppl stopped by & snapped photos in front of my Day 1 artwork named “Doodle”.

“What is doodle, daddy? I don’t know.” The daddy answered “It means drawing by following your heart.” I turned to the daddy & his boy with a big smile & said “I like your explanation, yes, I draw by following my heart.”

Another tiring day, but I felt satisfied & happy. Enjoyed a tasty dinner ~ a bowl of white porridge with an egg stilled together with some pepper, char kueh & ginger ~ prepared by a friendly Singaporean lady stall owner. 

Yeah! A wonderful day of mine! ๐Ÿ˜Š
