Bulanlifestyle featured in Tatler Malaysia as local artists to follow

As featured in Tatler Malaysia. Thank you for the mention!! What a lovely surprise. I consider it an honour when Tatler lists me as a local artist to follow.

“If you can’t find the time to support local artists by visiting your nearest art gallery, you could just as easily start by ‘following’ Joee and these 4 Instagram accounts.”

It’s very encouraging when local media start to pick up on my work. As an artist, all I have to use as a gauge is my instinct and heart. It is all about the passion. There is no set path you can follow. I often sit at home and wonder if I am doing the right thing. I don’t know. I don’t have the answer. For me I will continue doing what I do as long as I have a roof over my head and as long as my art makes me happy 🙂

Have a beautiful week and keep doing what makes you happy.

Happy world conservation day!

The very hungry tree frog. I love nature and I am proud of this collaboration with The Habitat Penang Hill, a world-class ecotourism site, the first of its kind in Malaysia that aims to promote environmental consciousness and conservation. Penang is world famous for food but little is known about it’s amazing biodiversity that is in need of protection. 🐸

I met Sheba in East London a couple of years ago outside a vintage shop and decided to do a sketch of her and now she’s on my products. I don’t often promote my products but I do sell stuff online if anyone is interested. How else would an artist survive?

This is available from my BulanLifestyle store.

Matahari Pineapple eco totes are now available at Lang Hoose, Beach Street, Georgetown, Penang

Lang Hoose

Matahari Pineapple totes are now available at the newly opened family run Lang Hoose hotel and cafe in George town, Penang. I’m really selective when it comes to placing my products. I have to like the retailer and the look and feel of the place has to be in line with my brand. I like Lang Hoose because they use a lot of recycled materials and welcome nature instead of destroying it. This place has soul. The couple running it are welcoming and friendly. They even run weekend activities for kids.

If you ever pass by George town, Penang, I would recommend to stay here 🙂

I love checks and stripes. I have started a check collection for my Animal Farm series. These are cotton totes available to buy from my online shop 🙂

Style: Childlike

Style – September 10th, 2011


Mojo the Belgian Shepherd, RM109. Inspired by the designer’s dog, 10 per cent of profits go to Penang Animal Sanctuary Society (PASS).

Drawing inspiration from nature and children’s story books, Bulan has launched a series of new casual totes that capture the spirit of childhood. The handmade natural cotton canvas and hessian materials in earthy greens, browns and natural shades are selected to reflect the delicate balance of nature so whether you choose bags from The Animal Farm or Vegetable Patch collection, they’re sure to draw compliments at your Sunday family brunch. Be careful, your nieces might just want one!
