first week of secound semester

I was here in SOAD for 1 semester already,

everything was going so fast,

I did learn..and having exams

till now...I started to learn again...it's next start

... I was happy...with studies and friends..and studio.

This semester gonna be happen again,

I wait for this time...I did stay lonely at home with nothing

I'm not kind of person that loves being with much people

but at least, I have things to make me busy..and rush

some people don't like it...but I do

...this week I already had much works "fundamental of typographic communication"

I hate those difficult fonts that I MUST do with my hand-drawing..

but in same time...I love them .. I got fonts called Journal

they will stay with me for 10 weeks.

I'll do my best.

just my diary and my deep thought
...don't think about that too much ...it's just crazy..I maybe only one who can understand it

and...see you again..my crazy blog

when I want to...I'm a dictator

also ..I'm mad...I'm bad...I'm lazy...I'm loser...I'm ugly

High noon in Mae Klong, SamutSongkram

Today I traveled with my auntie to SamutSongkram(sa-mut-song-kram)
a province not so much Far from Bangkok.

It was quite sunny day when we arrived.

We drive first to Kromaluang Chumpon Shrine ( site with English descriptions )
that we Thai people believed that visit and pay respect to his shrine make us lucky.
I was making some wishes for myself and my family.
I also bought a 1,500 fireworks, people believed that Krommaluang Chumpon loved it.
the sound while quite loud they burst. ^ ^u

after left the shrine, we go shopping at Don Hoilod where has much seafood products for us.

da da daaa... non-instant seafood shop near the sea ...welcome to Don Hoilod ;)

mostly are dry fish and another seafood sold here..
I bought many of them back for today....I think it can eat around 1 - 2 weeks. haha

Pla Insi tak-hang (dry Spanish mackerels)..it's very salty and smell so strong..
well.. a bit like Western's anchovy.
We often eat with rice or sometimes contain in some Thai food.

we love fishh

already fried fish for testers...(free for eating) ...they were fantastic!

Our (late) lunch time at SamutSongkram,
our familiar foods ( but it's more special than that :) )

1st... Som-tam Thai ( Thai papaya salad)

2nd Grilled Chicken :P

Som-tam Yod maprao on ( heart of cononut palm+ seafood salad)

...we stop at seafood product shop again (in different place ^ ^ )

Tadammmm! seafoods! ...smell a bit strong, but many things for you to choose!

Dry Hanging Pla Ryu-kyu (GIANT CATFISH) xD

diary of braces rabbit : Month 1

This month ..I have something adding in my mouth
..permanently for around 2-3 years
I'm now wearing brace ^ ^ first month
still try to accustomed with it.

Firstly, I did have to prepared the mouth to have brace about 1-2 months..
it's a bit hurt times, totally I had to take 8 teeth off.
6 teeth are normally taking off but I had 2 teeth impaction inside
...I had to have operation to take it off. ...for this step..it took around 2 months

after all mouth clearing, next step is tartar removal.
it's not that much hurt, but I hate it...I remembered the sounds of dentist's tools in my mouth,
it's like a sew or mad motorbike riding around on my teeth. I always felt unsafe ..but well ..it's nothing ...just my feeling.

Then, for 1 weeks after that, I had braces on my upper teeth..I was worried about my looking so much ^^U... and I became ...hmm.. how can I say...metal teeth girl?

the problems that I faced few days after wearing braces ..I couldn't chew nor bite. I can eat only soft things or soup, and to clean my teeth is more harder I have a tool and a special toothbrush from dentist also.
Everything was alright, till next other week... I had braces on lower teeth. I couldn't chew again for some days, eating only soup ^^U...that time ...I wanted to eat meat so much,
also fried chicken, cheese burgers and pizzas, but my teeth was not so ready to do that.
Now I can eat meat, and chew that good already. But still haven't have some pizza nor cheese burger. ....almost be accustomed ^ ^
Achh, I have to wait for 2-3 years to take it off. but well, times pass so fast...^ ^
that time I'll be more cooler smile ^_^

now I can only braces smile ...hope you don't mind hahah

see you next month, braces rabbit still be continue...

braces kisses,

Bangkok Unintended Design [BUD]
Interactive Project @ BDF Bangkok Design Festival 2008

The Day-to-day redefining of the defined.

Norms become ‘abnormally’ transformed – every day, everywhere, by everyone. It is about the use and the exploitation of objects already designed: the chair (also) becomes a coat stand, a surface to put things on, a laddar or – for example by piling books on the seat – a child’s chair; staples are suitable for cleaning fingernails; magnets on the fridge turn it into a notice board; steps are not just there to overcome differences in height, but also serve as seats and ramps for skaters; jam jars accomodate pens and Biros
– the possibilities are endless.

What to do ?

Many more examples of uninteded Design in Bangkok will almost certainly have occurred to you whilst looking the [BUD] Photo's @ facebook. So grab your camera and discover your own Bangkok environment and look for this kind of objects. Take pictures, print it out and fix it in the:

Bangkok Uninteded Design BDF Showcase
@ Bangkok Art & Cultur Center (opposite MBK),
4th floor,
14 – 26 October 2008.

Please write down you name and email address on the back side of each Photo. Thanks. By doing so, you are giving consent for your photos to be published free of charge under your name. Given enough material, there may will be a [BUD] Book.

Recognize the purely everyday ! [BUD] - an analytic, more sensitive reception of your environment. Design is about notice, notice, notice. You can observe a lot just by watching. Lets small things excit you. Love details ! You can find inspiration in everything, everywhere. Sharpen your sences ! Most people live with a bag over their head; so wake up your creative Perception & visual awareness – open your eyes and be part of [BUD] @ the Bangkok Design Festival 2008


“Design must embrace misunderstandings, mistakes and so-called misuse by people as a source of innovation and a means of improving cultural diversity.”
