I know it’s been awhile since I updated my blog. My daywork has been quite busy and there’s been an ongoing drama in the place where I live. So I have been making wild decision since the beginning of the year, and finally I am making concrete plans about it. I am moving out from my current place in about 2-3 months. So… I decided to reduce my load by having a big sale on my book.
From today onwards till end of May 2016(or until I ran out of books), you can purchase my book for only US$30! Please purchase my Kuroneko Cafe Miniature Guidebook now to reduce my load, I hate to have them thrown away just because I'm moving.
*Only can accept payment through Paypal
*FREE REGISTERED SHIPPING all over the world! (Do take note some countries still have other limitation, like delay/ complicated custom requirement, I will still do my best to track the item if it’s not delivered within 1 month)
Btw random rant: Singapore Post increased the shipping cost which pains me too, since I don’t want this to be a hinder when I’m mailing stuff >,<;
As I have said in my previous post, here are the individual hong kong exhibition miniature pieces details :)
I have to admit these may not be a good photo, as I was rushing just to complete them in time and distracted with AFA 2014. T_T
Anyway, here is the Event Detail:
Venue: The Sun Arcade basement, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong Time: NOW until 4th January, 2015 *Go down by escalator to the basement, my exhibition pieces is just right in front of the Watami, Japanese Restaurant. :)

If you are my blog reader, you maybe remember that I have blogged each pieces way back in the past. Yup, luckily I always have some "extra" that I keep with me. The 2-3 weeks that they gave me is more about making the furniture or display or table pieces.
Few of these are actually some samples that I made when I write my book :)
And just slightly more than a week before, they also requested some Hong Kong Michelin inspired food... to be made into minis!
Since I am working with air dry clay, my main worry is always whether or not the pieces can dry within time. And luckily I finished all 5 sets in time (and few days to let it fully dry :))
I have not even try all of these food myself; and have to based everything from the photos I found online.
Roast Duck inspired by Yung Kee Restaurant
Short Rib Burger and Flat Bread inspired by Bread Street Kitchen & Bar
Prawn Linguine and Royal Caprese Salad inspired by Jamie's Italian
Shumai and Baked Bun and Meat Bun inspired by Tim Ho Wan
Sweet Sour Pork with Strawberry inspired by Pang's Kitchen
Now that all the exhibitions are over for these year and I am back to my day job, I found myself with so much time... I even forgot how it feels like! Hahaha, time to search for new project!
Next post will be about my exhibition at AFA 2014, Suntec! (And more addition to my doll collection ;P )

First of all, I know I owe a lot of blog posts over this 2-3 months. But I simply do not have time to blog as I was rushing to complete the exhibition pieces (23 in total!) It may come as a surprise to some of you, but some should have seen the update on my instagram about "a secret project".
And the timing!
Right after I was just done doing AFA 2014 (it will be another blog post :)), I had to prepare to directly fly to Hong Kong! It was a really busy year end for me.
I will also have another separate post regarding each miniature pieces. :D
I received tremendous help in setting up all of the miniature. It was kind of hard to juggle my day job, preparing for AFA 2014, and completing 23 miniature pieces at the same time! I only have 2-3 hours of sleep everyday to rush completing everything (reminiscence from writing my book last time! XD) Luckily I still have some part of my own collections and selling stocks, so I only have to make the furniture or display pieces. It would be impossible to make all from scratch in just 2-3 weeks.
they also invited two gorgeous model (Rosemary and Jamie) who poses with my miniature here
Anyway! Here are some of the finished miniature pieces. These photos are not taken by me, but by Mr. Kim. I just have to put my logo (to prevent photo-thieves!). I hope you all understand :)
