A Sad Raya Haji in Sitiawan

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha from the whole lot of us in Sitiawan… …or something. It was Eid and it was Sitiawan’s turn this year. The trip to Sitiawan was not stressful for traffic was more than manageable. After nearly three years, I am still getting used to raya traffic being bad in the opposite direction. Irfan and I performed […]

The Star Wars Show Fan Art

The Star Wars Show crew asked for some fan art of the Star Wars Show from the Twittersphere, so being a Twitterspheroid (or a spheroid of some sort) I thought I would oblige them. So here we have Andi Gutierrez in an Imperial gunner costume, Anthony Carboni in some smuggler’s outfit with CH-33Z in his arms and Pablo Hidalgo at […]

SWD6: Out of the Red

Time is the Hunter Episode 06: Out of the Red Continuing the adventure I ran for Ain and Irfan last December… Bounty hunter Jax Hunt and amnesiac lady who called herself Iris Helena were waiting in the Corellian Engineering Corporation VCX-100 light freighter assigned to them, the Screeching Arrow, by the rebel fleet when the Togorian rebel coordinator Meow Skywalker […]

Patreon: Troops on the Ground

The latest Patreon paper miniatures were released hours before August arrived, but I forgot to feature them here on the blog. So here are the Troops on the Ground series of modern soldiers for any modern role-playing games that require soldiers as player or non-player characters. Easily used with games like Covert Ops, Delta Green or The Laundry. The image […]

A Nasal Epilogue

After last week’s surgery, I had splint and padding up my nose to hold things together as the parts within healed. The doctors gave me little bottles of saline solution and a syringe to douche my nasal cavity to cleanse it of blood, snot and other assorted blood-covered snot. On Saturday, after my regular nose douche and a shower I […]

Porg Dameron

What if Poe Dameron was a porg? What if he still had his helmet and Glie-44 blaster pistol? What then? What then? I drew the above a couple of days ago, posted on Twitter and Facebook. It was even featured on Star Wars Reporter!

New Sandwich Place

I have been wanting to visit this new sandwich place in town. We finally got extra cash for the week so we went for some sandwiches. However to save money, we only bought two – takeaway – and no drinks. The restaurant was cozy and had a nice ambience, found on one corner of Capitol Square. The smell of freshly […]

Suddenly, The Emergency Room

… but upon my return home from my three-day hospital stay, I discovered that Opah Irfan had a high fever and could not sit up. She was extremely weak from illness. So, we took her to the Klinik Kesihatan downtown before it closed, leaving Irfan alone at home to do his homework. When we arrived, Ain and Atok Irfan got […]

Finally, A Surgery

Atok and Opah Irfan came to visit last Saturday for a medical reason. The photo of them above along with Irfan was taken the day they left for Sitiawan on the 12th. Several days earlier, on Monday the 7th, I was hospitalised and surgery was scheduled for the next day. There I was, once more unto the breach. This was […]

Porgcorn

The Imperial Talker (Updated: 22nd Jan 2020 – Twitter account no longer exists) tweeted about a dream he had involving popcorn. I chimed in and… things escalated. Who knows, maybe we will discover in December that this IS an actual scene with Chewbacca and the porgs in Star Wars The Last Jedi.

Symposium Gift Artwork

At the language symposium last week, besides the two assignments I wrote about I also had a third task: Which was to sketch some artwork to be printed and presented as gifts to the special guests of the event. The common theme for each drawing was Perlis. I drew them all in Krita separately. Photographic references, of course, were used. […]

Irfan’s New Dice

I tried ordering some cheap dice from Lazada several weeks ago for Irfan. The new set with his old purple set he bought in Subang Jaya. Haven’t tested them in salt water for perfect balance yet, although random rolls did not result in any numbers that turned up significantly more than others. At least not yet.

My First Language Symposium

Another new experience I underwent was the language symposium I attended this weekend. The language symposium was an annual collaboration between three universities, two of them in southern Thailand. I was also part of the organising committee, although my duties were by far the most unimportant and required the least time and effort compared to everyone else who did a […]

Rebel SpecPorg

Sketch Wars on Twitter had a porg theme over the week, so I thought I’d chip in with a porg wearing Rebel SpecForce outfit for some reason or other. Well, I thought it was hilarious. Here are some of the other participants’ pictures: Part 1 of this week’s #sketchwarsdrawingclub – THANK YOU everyone who submitted their great artwork! ❤️ it […]

Enhancement Workshop at Langkawi

If you had asked me 10 years ago or so, I would say my new experiences will be declining gradually the older I grew. There would be less chances for me to do new things. I am pleased to report that I was wrong. In the last year or so I have been involved in a number of things I […]

Patreon Commission: Enigma Corps Redux

Edward MacGregor has been commissioning more paper miniatures for his FATE setting Enigma Corps. Here are three new batches for characters set in a South East Asian uchronia, where Western colonialisation did not occur and local culture has evolved into a dieselpunk society. They are all now live at my Hishgraphics Patreon page. Check out the photos below. Enigma Corps […]
