Distraction

Construction going on and on and on..outside my apartment. They are fixing up new pavements, drains and walkways. Everyday, the cars parked nearby are covered in dust and dirt. So are our flats. And I am coughing due to the dust..



So to distract myself from the noise..I decided to do this. Thankfully, Natasha didn't had to go school today. So she help me to take photos of me in stages painting this on fondant. I wanted to take this to show my students who came on Sunday to learn to paint roses on fondant. To inspire them..










Finally, rewarded with this:



The full picture. I am going to leave it to dry till bone-hard. Then framed it up and leave it in the store.


Well, I didn't passed my O level Arts paper for nothing. If only my Ah Gong is still alive...I would do this for his birthday and wished him many more wonderful years with us.
