onceoverlightly I'm going to say it: calligraphy with brush pens is harder than with nibs.🖌🖖🏻 Written for @abdulrxman 2w

onceoverlightly Our reward for the 4-hour drive is street food! Char okay teow is stir-fried flat rice noodles that is unbelievably aromatic. Pad Thai doesn't even come close!
In case you're wondering why I'm such a food snob, my parents are Penang-born and -raised. #penang #sorrybutmelakacendolisbetter #dontdisownme
Update: Ok this char koay teow isn't that great..... so much for queuing up for 30 minutes.

onceoverlightly Thank you so much @lamer for the Christmas presents! These are my favourites and last resort for dry, flaky skin (like mine), and I'm so happy to have them replenished! PS: I may or may not use the pouch as a clutch.

onceoverlightly I've been a good girl this year! Merci @lamer and @bobbibrown for the Christmas presents! Cannot wait to open them!
On another note, I want to apologise for the mini hiatus. Running a business takes up so much of your free time, especially the behind-the-scenes matters like packaging, designing, maintaining the online store/social media, and even more so when you're working full-time in the 24/7-service provider industry. I want to thank EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU for the amazing support for my website www.onceoverlightly.com and business venture @diykl!
As crazy as it seems, plans are underway for yet another business venture. Why? Because when you find a gap in the market, you dig your heels into it before anyone else does.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

onceoverlightly Spent the day with @joychong shopping at @awegallery, then another calligraphy and bejewelling session at her place. We designed this rhinestone arrangement together, and I hope you really like it Joy!
Shown here is @diykl's "Embellish Your Own Clutch" kit (only ONE kit left for sale currently at RM100, email us at hello@diykl.com to purchase)

onceoverlightly Christmas came a little early this year! Thank you so much @drjartmy for the über-hydrating Ceramidin Cream! I've completely used up my first tube, and I love the fact that a roller-squeezer (is that a real word?) was included with the new one so I can squeeze out every last drop of Ceramidin! 🏻
Review can be found on www.onceoverlightly.com (link in profile, search for Ceramidin)

Also, blerg because it's Monday today. #lizlemon
PS: I've confused my ink for my foundation and vice versa a little too often.

onceoverlightly Did another set of calligraphy drills, the second ever in my life (because I was lazy ok?) and what a difference it makes! This one is leaps and bounds better than the one in my previous Instagram upload.
My letters are now more uniform in size and distance. All in all, they look Copperplate-y. Thank you sifu Joy for all the tips and advice, which included "press down more", "scratch only ler", and "do your drills!". 🖋
If you want to learn calligraphy from Joy, check out the links in @joychong's and @ronnycakes' Instagram profiles! They're amazing teachers. 🖋 #copperplate #calligraphy #saturday #lettering #nikkog #vsco #vscocam

onceoverlightly I've just started watching "The Office", and Dwight definitely has (and receives) the most hilarious lines. 🖋
1. "Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica."
2. "Who is Justice Beaver?"
3. "Before I do anything, I ask myself 'Would an idiot do that?' and if the answer is yes, I do not do that thing."
4. "'R' is the most menacing of sounds, that's why they call it 'murder' and not 'mukduk'."
We have so much to learn from Dwight K. Schrute 🤔. PS: Whoa it has been 10 weeks since my last proper calligraphy practice!
