Cut it Out.

Yes, the title of this post is definitely a cheesy Full House reference but that's as far as it goes. While in Melaka, Malaysia some months ago we stumbled upon a small shop filled with hand made paper cut-outs.

The shop was owned by a humorous young artist named Ray who pain stakingly created 100s if not 1000s of cut outs which he sold in the store and the weekend night market. I asked him if he had anyone helping him with the cut outs to which he replied, " no one is crazy enough to commit to this kind of work. " Well apparently Ray is and I have to say I love him for that. Because after hours of scrounging through his work Justin and I finally settled on a beautifully cut tree housing a few perched birds.

If you're ever in Melaka make sure you visit his store which is located steps away from the Jonker Walk.
