Stick Girl

I enjoy reading Stick Girl's comics. Her minimalist style carries maximum impact. I emailed her with words of appreciation and she suggested I 'guest-star' at her blog. I was wondering how that could be accomplished. Opportunity came in the form of Stick Girl's birthday on 19 September. I drew the following as a gift to her with some creative liberty in adopting Stick Girl's style of drawing:

Keep those comics coming, Stick Girl :)

Tales Of A Lone Adventurer 02

It was the second day of the COMEX exhibition at the Singapore Expo and I went down to get myself a new external hard disk. I happened to have a cold that day and my nose couldn't stop running. I had to head down that Friday as I didn't want worm my way through the crazy weekend crowd.

So off I went as Deckard Cain from DIABLO II said: "Quickly in, quickly out." Reached Hall 4, secured the hard disk and it's back to home. On my way out, (head feeling woozy from the constant sneezing and running nose) I heard quick footsteps advancing from behind. I continued walking. Then I heard a woman's voice call out:"Hey! hey!" I didn't stop to look and continued walking. All of sudden from my peripheral vision, a sweet-looking lass popped out and stopped me dead in my tracks:

I didn't say "hello" but smiled and raised a quizzical eyebrow.

"What did I buy?" I was stunned for a few seconds as I ran a search in my 'database' to find a match for this affable lady. Nothing. Could she be one of my blog readers? Now what was I thinking... Suddenly:

Turns out she was doing a survey for a credit card company. Somehow I felt 'emotionally robbed'. Laugh all you want, readers but the last thing I needed on that day was crap masquerading as a "friend-I-didn't-know-I-have". I waved a 'No, thanks' and went on my way. Wished I could do this:

And how I felt while waiting for the train to arrive could best be described by the following:

Whoever you are lady, "HUTDUGAIKARSUI!"

Just A Comic 04 - Epilogue

Editor's note: Sometimes asking the obvious can be a good filler.

Long Hair Lady's dialogue in red: "Hey! I'm Hainanese too!"

Short Hair Lady's dialogue in red: "Hey, I can't tell!"

Long Hair Lady's dialogue in red: "Later we'll have chicken rice at Purvis Street."
Short Hair Lady's dialogue in red: "And order a plate of sweet and sour pork too."

Long Hair Lady's dialogue in red: "Hey, look at that monkey staring at us."

Guy: "I'm done for."
