Phew! I've been a very busy girl today! So busy that it's already 11pm and I've only just started writing this post!
|Relaxing in a nice hotel - bliss!|
I really wanted to try my hand at writing a tutorial on drawing and painting with an ink pen. So I did this drawing and took photos every step of the way. Watch this space for the tutorial!

This also got me thinking that it would be great to make an accompanying video tutorial, so I used the 'every day in May' challenge as my example piece for the video. Today's subject was 'draw your favourite drink'. I drew a cup of tea, I didn't have to think twice! I need to edit the video before I upload it, so again watch this space!
|Tea is my favourite drink!|
I had a lot of fun recording the video! I had to figure out a way to support the camera above my sketchbook, so wedged it between two tables and lay on the floor to paint, my arms around the table legs! Not the most comfortable position but the video came out great!
|The camera balanced between the tables, a rather awkward painting position!|
I also got around to finishing my entry for the Doodler's Anonymous competition. If I could only take one thing with me in a backpack I would take a camera, because if everyone else was only taking one thing with them and they hadn't thought to bring clothes, I think there would be some very funny photographs to be had of them trying to cover up with their one item!

We didn't just spend all day sitting inside (although having moved to a nice hotel we could have done!). We went for a walk around the huge marked in Sibu which is full of vibrant fruits and vegetables, fish, meat and some other 'foods' which I certainly wouldn't want to pass my lips!
Would you eat these? I know I couldn't. They have such squidgy, wriggly bodies! Eww!
This evening we had a delicious curry from the night market, followed by an equally delicious thick pancake stuffed with chunky peanut butter! Yum!
