Thank you @californiasunday magazine and @mister_leo for inviting @renn.lim to contribute his illustrations for the TEENS Issue last December. This is a precious and priceless opportunity for him. Appreciate it very much. #holycrapsg @holycrap.sg @aira_lim #californiasunday #welovemagazines
It's the 3rd day of the Lunar New Year and what a super crazy hectic week it has been helping my folks pack up their old home for a new one. (Omg my mom is such a hoarder but that is a story for another day!!😜) And sometimes when you are at your busiest, life loves throwing you more curveballs and we had a pretty curry one yesterday when my mom felt really unwell and I had to bring her to the A&E. She's better now as you can see though she'll have another check up next week. Life is such and you get little reminders or wake up calls to tell you what is most important in life. All else is jackshit really if there is no love, no family and no health. So for this wonderful year of the Dog we wish everyone near and far a truly Blessed Lunar New Year filled with abundance of love, family and good health. 🙏❤️✨
Thank you Perrin and 99u for this fun and humourous read!!! I did not know that a Mickey Mouse camera called Mick-A-Matic even existed???!!! Now I am bidding one on ebay:0 Hopefully I will get it!! And thanks again for featuring #rubbishfamzine No.7, glad to know that you enjoyed reading it and we will continue to work hard on this rubbish:)
GAH!!!! Thank you so so much Racy and team BooksActually for having this little chit-chat with my very own odd creatures, Renn and Aira. It always amazes me that I can still discover little oddities about my babies whenever they get interviewed. And it further reminds Pann and I how they are constantly evolving and changing and growing up way too quickly!! Stay odd and odder my babies!!!
(And side note to Racy, awesome awesome for putting in the Dustin gifs!!!! He is da bomb!!! )
A perfect Sunday today as we finally made our way down to visit this truly amazing and beautiful Auntie Wong at her roast meat stall at Pek Kio Market. We first heard about Auntie Wong on the local reality show Oh My Heroes! (You can watch all the episodes on Toggle) Auntie Wong have been working hard at her stall for over 30 years and for the past 20 odd years she and her husband have been helping the seniors and disadvantaged residents staying near the market by giving them... food vouchers whereby they can come to her stall for not only free food but also for friendship and a listening ear. A simple and humble hawker who have been working to the bone her whole life raising her family of five and yet can still find the heart and strength to help the underprivileged around her. I simply have no words to further express just how overwhelmed I am and am beyond blessed and honored to finally meet her. And if any of you would like to know more and even help out (offer to buy the food vouchers so perhaps more can be distributed) you can visit Auntie Wong at her stall which is open everyday. (She says she cannot close the stall because if she does then some of the residents won't be able to get their daily meals...😢🙏) A living angel in our midst, thank you Auntie Wong. ❤️
There is really no better time than a rainy, grey but yet luminous last day of 2017 to spend time with my babies holed-up indoors binge watching movies, eating unhealthy fried food and doing housework. (I just realize I've not washed Renn's new school pants yet!!!😱) And of course I got tempted to take a look back at what got me going throughout 2017 and ok, the first two pix really got me 😜😂🤣😬...definitely still kissable after 20+years. 😘😘And with Renn and Aira in tow, there ...is really nothing I cannot do and I am so grateful and thankful for them and for all the rubbish we get to do as a family. I must have done something more than good in my past life to deserve my three babies. ❤️❤️❤️ And so my special prayer for everyone for 2018 and for every year after, is to have family by your side. And family doesn't mean just flesh and blood, family is also whoever you choose to love and care for through all your days good or bad, better or worse. Family is yours to have forever. 🙏✨
Aira is a little too shy to show her face ☺️ and of cus the teenager thinks it's not cool for him to be singing and mommy sharing it with the world....🙄...but his left hand does make a cameo appearance!!!💪🏻 So sitting in semi darkness we would like to wish everyone near and far a truly Merry and Blessed Christmas and may love and happiness be with you all every single day. And if I may end the song for Aira...."and children listen, to their parents who are gold!" ✨😜👌🏻 Happy holidays one and all!!!!😘
Midnight fruit attack 🔪🔪 with some of Renn's lifelong faves like the watermelon, pineapples, cherries, mangoes and dragonfruit. A happy and most blessed 14th birthday to you my dearest son, my little man, my love, my soul, my Star-Lord.✨You truly rock me like a hurricane!!🌪( hahaha his to-go-to 80s rock song for now) Can't even begin to tell you how much I love you Renn. I just do, I love you. ❤️ Forever and a day. #bestson #foreverandaday #love #thirteengoingonfourteen #scorpions #hereiam
Feeling all sorts of strange and wonderful vibes these few days looking at Renn and thinking about how much he has grown and how the years just flew by. That's Renn at his very first solo art exhibition in 2011 all cute and adorable.(Sadly the picture taken back then on my handphone is of such dismal quality.) Holding on to his art catalog with one of my most favourite doodle by him of his right hand and how he beautifully titled it 'Renn Lim by Renn Lim'. Six years on he's still the same yet different but he'll always be my little man. And how I love my little man. ❤️
The four of us really want to send out our gratitude to everyone in Singapore who have showered us with your love and bought a copy of our 7th issue Flash And Blood. ⚡️💉We are officially sold out since last Sunday. We are very sorry that we have to turn down all enquires and orders. An extra shout out to our supporters from Australia, Canada, Dubai, France, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Philippines, Portugal, Thailand, USA and U.K. Your encouragement and support is precious to us as well. For friends in the U.K there are limited copies left @magculture which will lead me to send out another special thank you to Jeremy Leslie of Magculture for his continuous support and love. We will be nothing without all of you guys!!! 🙌🏻 THANK YOU. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #issue7 #flashandblood #rumpus #karenoandthekids
It's midnight now but we would really wanna send out loud thank yous and loads of kisses to everyone who came down this evening to Renn and Aira's Odd Creatures launch. It was a short but truly sweet affair. Your love and support will be immeasurable. The four of us will be at our little teal room for the next 9 days from 12-7pm (except for Mondays when Deck is closed) so hopefully we can catch up with more of you guys. Sweet dreams and goodnight everyone. 😘😴
Ok our walls are painted, one thing off the checklist 🤘🤘🤘Next is mounting up the work! OddCreatures art exhibition by Renn and Aira Lim opens this Friday @deck_sg from 7pm. Do drop by to say hello if you are in the area. @holycrap.sg @renn.lim @aira_lim #holycrapsg #oddcreatures @oddblocks.sg
Into the realm of fellows and beasts where strangely odd creatures roam and live. Like wildlings from beyond, they are heard but hardly ever seen. Still their stories must be told for they yearn to be known.
Odd Creatures and their sometimes sad but mostly whimsy tales are conjured from within the hearts and minds of Renn and Aira Lim. This is the 14 and 11 year old brother and sister duo's fifth joint art exhibition.
Stamped, chopped and thumped into existence, Odd Ceatures ...were made possible by the creators and thinkers of OddBlocks® whose playing blocks are awfully interactive and ingenious. They are for anyone with a curious mind; for those who believe in the power of play and ceaseless imagination.
SEE YOU ALL FOR THE OPENING NIGHT ON THE 1ST DEC FROM 7PM ONWARD. AND WE WILL BE THERE EVERYDAY BETWEEN 2-10 DEC FROM 12PM - 7PM.
Mondays - CLOSED
Tuesdays to Saturdays - 12pm till 7pm
Sundays - 12pm -5pm
Huge thanks to:
