A Cheerful Visitor & Sketcher from Malaysia

We held each other's sketches for a shootRu Hui was the cheerful visitor and sketcher from Malaysia, to be exact from Ipoh, Malaysia. She is a prolific sketcher who have just spent 3 months backpacking in New Zealand @_@. On the way home, she decided to drop by our tiny island with her boy friend Kuan Yew (clear throat... not that KY, you know who). We had lunch at Tiong Bahru's one and only Fishball Noodle restaurant, Hua Bee. Then we exchanged sketchbooks. I was pretty eager to thumb through her NZ sketchbook especially when I have already seen the pages from Facebook. After lunch I requested Ru Hui to draw something on my sketchbook for keepsake. While she was still deciding what to sketch, I suggested her sketching the fishball noodle auntie while she is standing beside her stove. I did a similar one earlier on.

Later in the afternoon, we brought them to some quaint bookshops to browse, then to White Canvas for the Tiong Bahru gallery show, and finally to Straits Co. to get some art supplies. Ru Hui has always wanted to try the Hero fountain pen so she bought one for herself, as well as a brush pen and a bottle of Hero fountain pen ink.  She would be able to try out the pen when she came for a sketching and painting trip at One Fullerton. Here's a shot of the event.
