WORKSHOP: Watercolour for beginners

My dear readers,

My second workshop – “Watercolour for beginners” was held on July 14th, 2019, in a warm and cozy co-working place – QSpace, located at the centre of District 1, Ho Chi Minh city. It was a 2 hour workshop with full of joy, surprise and experience. It was meant to serve my big topic of “Try new things”. The purposes of this workshop were to:

  1. Get used to the flow and transparency of watercolours
  2. Get used to and have fun with watercolour’s mediums: salt, alcohol, masking liquid and others
  3. See watercolour as a mean to relax, ease and free.
  4. Ensure each student to have their own type of drawing(s) to take home with.

Guess what, it was so fun when we had a lot of surprises using mediums, lots of laughs and relaxation. I got a cute 6 year old student who created fun and colourful paintings herself. She was so polite and charming saying thank to me and told me she would love to join my next workshops. I also got a warm hearted postcard from another student telling me that she just got a beautiful learning experience. And yeah everyone got different colourful drawings to keep for themselves even though they have never drawn anything before, which is great achievements for them, and for me!

WORKSHOP: Making bracelet your own style

My dear readers,

My fifth workshop in 2019 – “Making bracelet your own style” was held on December 29th in QSpace, a warm and cozy co-working place at the center of District 1, Saigon. It was a 2 hour workshop with full of colors, sharing and loving. 

The workshop was meant to serve my big topic of “Try new things”. We tried new things together, we shared our emotions and inner thoughts freely. We created and relaxed at the same time. We had fun and connected with each other, by making same-style bracelets with our friends and by giving our design as a gift to our loved ones. 

This workshop will be hosted again in the new year, January 12nd, 2020, we hope to see you soon. Together, we will blow all of the shining colors to welcome this new meaningful year.

Have a wonderful year end.

Do new things, Read

One new thing about my reading (I’ve read 27 books in 2019)

Early 2019 I made a resolution to read as many books as I can. This is one of my 100 new little things. 

Some of you who know me may ask: Why is it a new thing because you have been reading your whole life? 

Yes but well, my reading pace is very slow. In some years I only finished 4 to 5 books, which I suddenly realized that it’s never enough!

So I devised a new tactic to read differently (I wrote a whole article about this tactic, you can check it here)

How to read differently

Yea you may say: “We all know how to read” :))

But somehow the way we read as a habit will not help us in the long run. We come to a bookstore, choose just the books that we wanted to read, or we knew the authors, or we love the genres. Imagine you travel to a different country, wander on strange streets yet find to eat only your hometown dishes? Reading the same genre is similar to having the same dish. Yet a small bookstore could represent the whole world, not just a different nation, so please don’t choose your everyday habit, or your familiar genre!

ONISM: The awareness of how little in the world you will experience

Have you ever wondered about how little you are, and how little in the world you will experience in your short lifespan? Especially with ones who love to travel, this pain may touch you not just once, that you have to decide between mountains and beaches, Europe and Asia, with an aching thought that even until you have to say your last goodbye, you still never really know your whole country, your whole world, your whole universe?

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows explains this very well using the word “Onism”.

onism – n. the frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time, which is like standing in front of the departures screen at an airport, flickering over with strange place names like other people’s passwords, each representing one more thing you’ll never get to see before you die-and all because, as the arrow on the map helpfully points out, you are here.

WHEN to start your new things

Last year I wrote the book “100 new little things – A method for knowing your Why”. The book focuses mostly on why and how to start doing new things. However, knowing WHEN you’re ready isn’t that easy as I previously assumed because people never think of it when the time comes. They miss their chances and don’t even realize it. So, how to know when is the right time for you to start something new to refresh your old routines, your old habits and yes, your old persona? Below are 7 suggestions you may want to consider.

1. When you are bored

Of course it’s the right time to start something new because eventually you have some gut feelings of refreshing yourself. (normally we are the last ones to know that we actually are bored to death :)). And the tricky part here is that we usually take no action when we get bored, except for lying on the sofa all day watching netflix and let the feelings go. What you should really do instead is to find something new to refresh yourself, a new book, a walk around your neighborhood, a cooking attempt. Even a new genre on netflix counts, just don’t switch from action movies to comedy, I mean, you can try a documentary film on a topic your never think you are interested in.
