Office Conversations: Remuneration and Appraisal time

In summary:
You can't get more pay if you don't get promoted, and you can't get promoted because there are too many people with higher pay already who are blowing out budgets. (Not because you don't deserve it.)

Talk about motivation! ;)

Cute Engrish Moments

I have friends from non-English speaking backgrounds who say this sometimes. It's a repeated mistake, but it's really cute when they do. ^^

There are heaps of other examples.  I also find it amusing when Koreans say "hand phone" in an English sentence by accident instead of "mobile phone" (because in Korean, it is actually called "hand phone").

English can be a pretty amusing language.

Digital Bunnies + Character Intros (FINALLY!)

Yes, the bunnies look really weird today...

The above comic was created using a Pen & Touch tablet which came as a nice birthday gift.
To be honest, I'm still a bit indecisive about going's actually very hard to control and it gets very frustrating.  But maybe I'll get used to it one day.  Maybe.

So for now, this will be the only digital comic that I'll publish officially, until I get the hang of it.
For those who are fans of the hand-drawn ones...don't worry, they're still going to be around for a while. :)


We finally introduce the two main characters!!!

Here it goes.......

Name:  Hana
Gender: Female
Age: Unknown
Interests: Making friends, doing fun things and eating lots of sweet stuff.

Meaning of the name: "Hana" actually has two meanings.  In Korean, it means the number one.  In Japanese, it means flower.  So this name was actually very fitting because not only was she the first character I thought of, but she is also very expressive and vibrant.

Personality: The enthusiast. Hana will pretty much get excited over anything, but is also quite emotional at times.  She gets bored easily and will think of silly things to do.  Hana is the only one who can get Koya to come out of his shell and make him be a little more social.
Occasionally, Hana will wear a flower in one ear.

Name:  Koya
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Interests: Bickering with Hana (just for fun), reading and soccer.

Meaning of the name: None. It just sounded cool.  But if you must, Koya can be a South American Indian name or a Japanese name.

Personality: The thinker. Koya is rational and intelligent, but due to Hana's influence, he will sometimes unwillingly give in to doing silly things. Although he seems to bicker with and tease Hana a lot, they actually do care for each other deeply.  Sarcasm and deadpan humour are Koya's specialty.
Koya will occasionally wear a tie when he feels he needs to impress.

More to come~!!
There are two more secret characters to be revealed in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned! ;)
