Artsy Craftsy

My artsy craftsy boy. He loves arts & crafts, loves drawing and making comics and creating storielines, loves origami and of course while doing it, creating a mess in the house. Not that our house is neat in the first place, if you judge by the royal mess we had in the background of the photo.

Unlike when I was small; when it was frowned upon by my Mom for me to do anything that isn't related to studying - I encouraged Raimie to enjoy his non-academic pursuit.Yeah, I'm weird that way.

I would love if he can be more boisterous and enjoy the great outdoors too and maybe take up martial art or two but he wasn't interested in that... yet. Well, my son has a sensitive side and if he like this "gentle" pursuit - why should I not encourage him?

Anyways, currently one of his favourite TV program is Art Attack and is now busy with one Art Attack inspired project. We'll see how its progressing soon!

By the way, proud to say that other than getting helping him in getting the materials, he is doing the project himself. :)

    1. Better to have both. Likes to be quiet sometimes and active at other times. ;)

  3. most important of all, is what you've done so right, to give space to his talent and interest.. unlike most parents nowadays who just force the children to do things they themselves think "useful"..

    1. I don't know. Some people think that I way too relaxed about my son's education.

      Ah well... life isn't just about getting straight As.

    1. If he turns out like you, SK - I will be very happy. So well-rounded. :)

      Yeah, he follows me to all my races and sometimes we run together during weekends but I wish he's more active. He tends to like staying indoors more because of his games (and the fact Daddy also is a gamer). :(

  5. My son is 17, and not boisterous at all but he is developing just swell. Being boisterous does dot guarantee them being a "true man" lol .. Your son is doing superbly .. Art attack is awesome!

    1. @KJ,
      Your son is so caring of you. I'd like that for a Son. Dependable, responsible and warm-hearted.

      Art Attack is awesome! Masa kecik2 dulu pun ada jugak kan (or was it under a different name)? I love the program too. :)

  6. Actually half the thing I had to learn in school never applies in the real world so good on you for getting him to do something else :D

    1. Likewise.

      Can't exactly remember what I learn at school too, since I spent more of my schooling days away from class. xD

      But now have to dig back all those lost knowledge - to study with Raimie! o.O

  7. Oooh! I enjoy arts and crafts too! We might be good buddies hehehe but I guess I'm too old to be friends with him ahahaha

    BTW, LOL'd at this line "the royal mess we had in the background of the photo" - do something to the royal mess, Ms. Lina! ;p ;p
