Cliches, hot tub parties and puberty: a post in pictures

I've become my parents

time for puberty

Well hi there!

I was rummaging around my stack of drawings the other day and found a few cartoons that, for whatever reason, haven’t been posted. So I thought it would be nice to do an all-cartoon post today.

this is is gonna be my very own electronic diary or may i say an electronic book just for me to jot down whatever i have to say. ‘blogging’ ain’t an alien word for me since i had been blogging since long ago. due to some reasons such as time constraint and my very bad memory, i, first and foremost didn’t have the right time to continue blogging and secondly, i FORGOT my password. so yeah, obviously the blog is  dead. it has been two years  since i last blogged.

I’M BACK NOW…!!! 😉  super excited. dear people, stay tuned to listen to all my shitty craps. haha.
