(bookish)


It turns out there isn't much in my creativity bank I need to literally visit a museum or go out somewhere to observe something every other day! The peacock idea is undoubtedly a common first-response thinking result, and it isn't something that is going to win a competition. For now, the peacock will just sit nicely on my sketchbook. Sigh... well, experienced design teachers are bound to know the industry's nooks and crannies more than I do. That's why I listen to them -__-

Anyway, I found this interesting questionnaire/meme on b's blog. Let's get on with it.

» One book that changed your life
The Bible. It significantly influences my way of thinking and the way I live.

» One book you’ve read more than once
*glances at stack of books under the table* Kateigaho, 2006 autumn issue... alright, it's a magazine! Dusk Till Dawn is another that I've leaved through for many times.

» One book that you’d want on a desert island
One of those fashion illustration books with a reflective/shiny/holographic hardback cover. They're good for signalling :p (do you know that using reflective items to attract attention when marooned can increase the chance of being rescued?)

» One book that made you laugh
It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be. (The cash cow illustration is plain hilarious.)

» One book that made you cry
Paulo Coelho's By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept.

» One book that you wish you had written
Whatever you think, think the opposite. I want to have that kind of out-of-the-box, lateral thinking.

» One book you wish had never been written
Publications flunk and books don't always have something worthy to say to its reader, but I don't I would wish for any book to not be written in the first place. Sometimes we just don't realise how good a book is until we stumble upon crappy ones. This is why I'd rather exist along with substandard-quality books.

» One book you are reading at the moment
Minaret by Leila Aboulela.

» One book that you’ve been meaning to read
Fashion design process innovation and practice. Essential reading material.

» Tag five others that you’d like to do this meme
Do I have to? Oh well. The honour goes to my dad, ww, winged0ne, Devi, Mely and calad. (Alright, that's six, but I do want to know what they're up to.) I'm sure you six are avid book readers :D pretty please?

Time. To. Sleep. Yawn... lucky there are no classes on Wednesdays (for now), but gotta wake up early to go to the bank. Will also need to register for extra language classes... which means there are no sleeping in tomorrow/this morning 9__9;

Take care!
