The World Cup finally kicks off tonight! Although it's not a big match, I'll still be watching it to get the World Cup mood going on! Germay Vs Costa rica, happening in a few hours time, woo hoo! Will be supporting 2 countries, England and Japan, though chances of both winning are slim at best. My guess? Brazil are going to be the eventual cup winners, again. Guess we'll find out soon, eh.
Disclaimer: The picture on the right is not a photoshop! I repeat, not a photoshop! (Not that hard to believe since I'm more likely to be working on an Ultraman picture). Mabel and our friend Kelly's going to be poster girls! Sure Mabel's been on magazine covers before, but it's been a while since she's gotten on something big. Last one was on U Channel's magazine around 2 years ago. Anyway, notice the numbers for both of them. 168 and 088. Fancy the organisers to choose such aspicious numbers, haha! And yeah just for the curious ones, Mabel hasn't really ran the 10km...
My good old OCS buddy Sam (yeah the good old days of Alpha Wing), has started his blog recently. Sam's a very talented cartoonist and you can see his work regularly in Lian He Zao Bao (联合早报). I love his work, which has a very local flavour, and his drawings never fail to amaze me and make me laugh. Hopefully he can publish his own work soon enough, and I'm sure with his talent success wouldn't be far away. Check out Sam's blog here. I've been bumping into him every now and then, and hopefully one of these days we'll be able to have a gathering with old friends from Alpha Wing 41/00.
Henohenomoheji (へのへのもへじ) is a face drawn by Japanese schoolchildren using "Hiragana". The word breaks down into the seven hiragana characters he, no, he, no, mo, he, ji. The first two "he" are the eyebrows, the two "no" are the eyes, the "mo" is a nose, and the last "he" is the mouth. The outline of the face is made by the character "ji", with the dakuten forming the ear. Children use henohenomoheji as the faces of scarecrows.
