Life is grey until Ocha comes along.

You’ve probably seen the bag charm and Murakami’s latest hit before around here.

But you’ve only met Ocha the pig recently through my Instagram, and he’s 100% made of love.

Be the first to hear about him, because our online boutique is coming soon. We bring you select lifestyle products (like the T-shirt above) featuring Ocha, his friends, and a whole lotta cuteness.

Stay tuned for updates ;)

Apologies – a minute certainly wasn’t a minute. I was dealing with a persistent wordpress problem. But no worries now, I’ve fixed it.

If you’re already following me on several social media platforms, you’ve probably seen the cute birthday cake I briefly mentioned about:



Can you believe the sheer amount of cuteness? It’s one super duper adorable pig-shaped cake, courtesy of the talented, dedicated, creative hands behind Sugarville Cake~~

And, you’ll never guess this, but beneath the fondant layer of its belly is a heavenly cake filled with chocolate and Baileys.


When I first laid eyes on it, there were tears flowing down my eyes.

It was a thoughtful gift, and the person who made this order already knew I’d love it. Thank you love <3




In case you’re wondering what’s the big deal with this piggy character, his name is Ocha, my darling mini cupig.

A cupig is a cute, cuddly, cup-sized pig, and little Ocha here is my cup of joy, my balancing act, and my precious snowball all bundled into one. I’m sure you’ve seen him a lot on Instagram, ‘coz I can’t help but share my giddiness whenever he shows up on my mind x3 How I wish he’s real …

It’s been really cold lately, don’t you think?


Seems like the January Effect is starting to wear off and everyone is thrown out of balance already, with the deadly floods and the polar vortex and all.

Thank God my cup of joy is here to bring back a sense of balance, even if it’s just a little.

I hope you find him comforting. He’s my precious little baby boo.




Stay cozy with this cute PJ set. You’ll see how Ocha, my little mini cupig, seems to magically ward off the winter blues.

Sometimes, all you need is a little time to slow down and restore your balance.


My little cup of joy here is a gentle reminder for me to keep smiling and stay grounded no matter what happens.

I hope you find pleasure in his presence as I do whenever he appears on my mind.

Take a look at these mementos of him in silent meditation:

Roses are red, bookworms are blue …

It was our 29 months being together on Tuesday.

Early in the morning, I woke up with this on my face.




Case in point: Girls who say they don’t like flowers love ‘em the most, and by girls, I mean me.

While I’ve already prepared a little over a week for what I was about to give him, I only managed to get it printed yesterday. Nevertheless his smile was still wide when he received it :)



It’s a standard 5 x 7″ card printed on an ivory cardstock paper. I purposely made my palette really cool so it’ll look soft, warm, and squishy when offset by the chalkiness of the paper.

I do make it for sale if you’re interested. Just drop me an e-mail over to for your questions.

As you can see, I have a super cute cupig toy sitting by my greeting card. It was a really different surprise from the many little surprises 10 usually prepared for me. He got it when we went for a vacay to Singapore a few months ago, but to be exact, he didn’t buy this out of some piggyland store1. In fact, the cupig was a direct result of 10’s 3D-drawing skills.

Yes, the little cupig was 100% crystallized into reality by using 3D-printing technology, thanks to the creative people at Print 2 Life Studios :D When I received it, I thought the cupig’s face looked a lot like the couple in another one of the greeting cards I made for 10 some time ago.


He admitted that he treated these lovely cupigs as his muse all the while he was drawing the voluminous 3D-printed cupig. To that, I really think men are better when it comes to maps, angles, and perspectives. Somehow it frustrates me to have to think about all those mathematical dimensions while drawing. It’s supposed to be more of a flow thing and if I start to calculate anything at all even when I’m working flat, those creative juices simply evaporate.

So yeah, another monthiversary, another creative production – all because of love and for love. Plenty more memorable moments to come …
