Packaging design | 包装设计



大学第四年,在犹豫着是否要拿“包装设计”这一科还是“出产系统”。各别上了这两堂课看看,最终还是选择了“包装设计”。我知道“包装设计”是属于比较艺术型的一科,对它原本就有着很大的兴趣,但“出产系统”这科在现实的出产系能让我有更多对于出产过程、器材等了解会更多。思绪反复变化,还是抵抗不住我对设计的渴望,选择一个能让我有着天马行空想象的包装设计。

我自己本身对包装很感兴趣。以大众的看法及认知,相信大家都会被一个产品的包装设计所影响。包装或产品设计从人类的视觉、感触上刺激及影响大脑比较感性的一面,尤其对女生非常见效。前一阵子,我在Daiso看到了一个我必买的生活用品。在付钱柜台时,柜台旁边放了三种设计非常可爱的零钱包👛。 所谓可爱的设计就是LINE的卡通系列 (抱歉当时没拍照📷下来)。那时我心里面的OS是:哇,那么可爱!好想要买一个占为己有。但有一刻回过神来,我明确清楚地知道我是不需要,不,是根本都不会用到这零钱包的,买来也没用。为了让自己死下这个被“可爱设计”所诱惑的感性想法,我对着那收钱员工说:“wah... ini (零钱包👛) design sangat cute woi.. tak boleh, saya tak perlu beli ni... ini memang ialah marketing punya taktik la.” 说了这番话,心里还是想着要拿它(零钱包👛)来看个究竟,但我还是成功控制我自己不要拿它起来(你们看,这产品设计的诱惑是不是很厉害?如果我拿它们其中一个起来,我看我又要还多一个RM5.90),然后对于我刚刚说出那句马来话,扇自己一道耳光。真的是笑死人!事实证明,女人的钱就是那么容易赚。再加上女人这动物在买东西上,根本就只是靠视觉花钱。很惨,真的很惨,因为我是过来人,我了解。😂

回到包装设计的话题,成千上万的产品公司及设计师都费了很多心思在这儿。当然,他们无时无刻就在想着该怎么让产品的销售量突破已设定好的目标,怎么吸引顾客去购买。此外,他们还会添加一些有意义,或真实故事情节通过他们的产品呈现出来,使得那产品除了有独特的样貌,能通过设计给顾客们带来不一样的故事而产生不该有的生命力。写到此刻,你们说他们是不是很厉害?出产一个产品罢了都已经有着那么复杂,勾心斗角的打算了,根本就是在玩弄我们(消费者)的情绪及控制我们的头脑来赚我们的钱嘛。而我们女生偏偏就是会中这圈套。看这情况就是惨剧一部,意志力不坚定的人们必定会让自己的钱包吐血。

在逛台湾🇹🇼一家书店(名为:诚品)的时候,无意间看到了一本关于“纸”的书。随手拿起来看看,原来全都是关于不同种类的纸张家族,能做出不一样的东西,设计及用处。其实用在包装上的材料通常依据不同产品而定。包装的材料也是举不胜举。单单一种材料的家族就已经很大了。在我生日时收到了这份礼物“纸”书(友人在诚品书局看到我看着这本“纸”书时,跟他分享了一些,结果不懂他在马来西亚哪里弄到一本送了给我)。现在从新翻开这本介绍“纸”的种类、设计及产品,我却有着不一样的心态去读它。原因是之前为了考试才被逼去记得,如今用一个放松的心情从这本上索取知识,真的是很不一样。虽然这本书📖就只是跟我聊“纸”,但我的眼睛就会不由自主地被吸,时间在墙上绕了几圈都不知道。
以下是一些关于纸📄的产品及包装。
书本的纸也分成很多种,我在写作✏️时喜欢用较厚的纸张。
再用水性黑色钢笔✒️写字,能感觉到每一个笔画的墨水从笔尖划出去的瞬间被纸吸着的爽感

 肥皂的包装是褐色的再生纸

 护肤品的包装用这种有触感的盒子,感觉很朴实

包装内层还用了折叠式的纸盒来保护玻璃瓶的产品

 茶叶的包装也采用了纸盒

 接触茶叶的内侧使用锡纸来封这茶叶,以保留它的鲜度。
这种纸包装通常都用在食物上。

 当然,这种再生纸也是纸张的一份子。
它在我们的生命过程里扮演着非常贴切及重要的角色。
虽然便宜,但不可轻视它的身份。哈哈哈

完美的一天


🎼我要一所大房子 有很大的落地窗戶
      陽光灑在地板上 也溫暖了我的被子

这是孙燕姿的一首歌,《完美的一天》。
我完美的一天不是拥有什么大房子,也不需要去买些什么来让自己快乐。

早晨起来吃了轻便的早点,跟老友晨跑🏃去了。地点是在一座茂密树林里的公园。森林里边铺好了人行步道好让人能散散步、跑步等。把车停在没定格,路旁的树荫下,我们便开始了所谓约好的晨跑。那时是早上九点钟,看似算晚了,但公园那儿还有叔叔阿姨还在走。茂密的树林将一半以上的阳光给遮住了,所以步道行走时算不热。还真的是因为置身在古晋这家乡,居住在这里的居民超有公德心的。举例一,走在一位叔叔后面的我看着他边走边将步道的树枝往路旁丢以避免其他人跑步时被绊倒。举例二,由于有工作人员在某处整理不规律的树枝,另一个经过我们的大叔叫我们别往前行,在修树枝,还带我们走另一个步道。这么热情的长辈们在我家乡遇到最多了。

跑步完了,我去了我朋友说的“洗脸”产品试用活动。那产品我两年前有用过。六个基础配套的保养品我有用过,但对于我的皮肤来说有点儿油,毕竟我的肤质是油性肌肤。而他们家的产品至今我还在用的是他们的牙刷和牙膏。产品牌子相信大家也非常熟悉,Atomy。只不过正式迎进古晋比较慢些,现在已经有自己的代理公司了。Brunch 去了 ICOM Square那儿解决。中午了,上班族几乎都现身在这人吃午餐。我点了好久没吃的砂拉越辣沙。由于是朋友(Lee woon)的生日,我们也约了另一个在附近上班的老友(Abigail)让她买片蛋糕来庆祝。在咖啡店庆祝生日就只有一个词可形容 --- 热闹。

                                                                            生日快乐咯
还是喜欢砂拉越的辣沙

下午我跟另一帮朋友出去聚聚。在新加坡上班的她(秉珍)刚好拿了假期回来家乡,约上来我及一个没上完心理学家课,小我五岁的摩羯座朋友(Michelle)。我们这组合看起来好像怎么样都搭不上(不论外貌,年龄,谈吐方式)结果因为宗教共鸣也不懂怎么的就搭上来了。哈哈哈。难的她找我出来,Michelle也提议说去市区那历史建筑物Old Court House里的咖啡厅尝尝他们家的蛋糕,名为 Kopi C Cafe。 那里的蛋糕真的是极其的好吃,口感就像英格兰或苏格兰或意大利那儿传统/经典式的蛋糕。在马来西亚吃了那么多家的蛋糕,这是我生平第一次觉得吃过史上就好吃的经典西式蛋糕(不跟日本的起司蛋糕比较,因为这是两个完全不一样的蛋糕类型)。如果你是喜欢西式蛋糕的人,我强力推荐。品尝了浓口味的蛋糕再配上一壶不管什么口味的茶,这可是多么完美的下午茶呀!真希望与朋友在这么享受的聚会里永不结束。

当然了,时间是理智的。也因为如此,我们才能随着它继续生活着,尽管我们多么希望那珍贵的时光不会逝去。黄昏时刻,我们来到了附近的独立广场Padang Merdeka。或许是我幸运吧,百年难得一见,自从东马独立以来就生长在此地的老树是棵棉花树。树枝开满了棉花,待风一吹,将附近的周围整得像下起棉棉之雪的场景,漂亮极了。在黄昏时刻带着相机在那儿拍了很多与朋友聚在一起难得的回忆。

这一整天下来,对于我来说的确是一个完美的一天。
Old Court House 那里的小花园及喷泉⛲️,完完全全是英国庭院的感觉 
任选要吃的蛋糕🍰,蛋糕的种类有十种以上。个个都好吃哦!
里面的装潢还蛮俗气的。
蛋糕要配上一壶茶
真的很好吃
三人行的自拍🤳
对面坐着老外。
最近很多老外来参加刚刚举办的世界热带雨林音乐会
 独立广场看棉花盛开的人潮
雨过天晴的天空
在捡地上的棉花
满地的棉花团
在有阳光☀️的地方拍照是最漂亮的了
三人游的合照
大家留下的美好回忆。
一切都完结得太完美。
最喜欢这张路人随意按下快门而我们都在爆笑的照片。


毕业了,大学的朋友们也都踏上了各自的旅程。
以前热热闹闹租的房子,现在也变得空空荡荡。
剩下了我的东西,不见了朋友们的作息声。
终于可以赤裸裸的在家放肆,但如今也不起劲了。

本身是家中唯女,由于被哥哥弟弟包围着,父母也没因此把我变成“大小姐”一样惯养。
传统的亚洲家庭观念是女生必须得学会打理一切家里的家务。
丈夫在外奔波,妻子在家里顾家、照顾小孩。
被练,被逼着帮忙家里的一切事物,我没说“不”的权利。
一路的内心想法从讨厌转移至心疼妈妈每天为家里操劳让我很自然而然地想帮她减轻负担。
家里仍是男持外,女管内的习惯,但现在世界的进展已是男女平等的阶段。
下一代的家庭观念应该是男女彼此持家及处理家务。

一直都处于独立性个,珍惜与朋友的相处,也当然不喜欢每一次的分离。
他们说:“分离是为了下一次的相聚”,and vice-versa。
我只能说我们只能在未来见面,只是不知道时间和地点。
每一次的飞行、乘搭巴士到某个目的地,我已忘了什么时候不是独行。
心里还是会喜欢大众型的相聚,或某朋友的停留。

觉得自己很适合“独”字,因为我的人生旅程就反映出这词的意思。
享受自己喜欢做的事情,选择自己想挑战的事物,解决自己遇到的问题。
渐渐的我爱上一个人的自由,但很闲自由的宽度。
因为它偶尔会让我变得慵懒,偶尔变得想一直独处,不希望有外人的干扰。
久而久之又是否变得自私了呢?

Merry Christmas and blessed birthday ❤︎ Part 2

Well, I'm just too lucky to have friends that will remember my birthday and celebrate the day for me. One top reason is it's the Christmas Day where it's a holiday. Rephrasing my sentence again, I should thank my mum for bringing me to this world on this special occasion. Birthday and festive celebration continued on Christmas Eve with my friends met since diploma time. They are the crazy and silly diploma gang that do stupid stuff but fun at the same time. They're funny, sometimes, and they are like beasts who are obsessed with food, exercise and of course, pretty ladies.
We had lunch at a place near The Shore, River Quay Dining & Lounge. Lunch hour starts from 12-3pm, the dining place has 50% offer so we went there to try their food out. I ordered this Chicken Burger, and it's quite nice. Other friends ordered the spaghetti, 1/4 chicken, sandwiches... The spaghetti is not worth trying if you wanna fill your stomach full cause the portion is too small. The cakes and desserts are just so-so and can it out if want. They have the cakes half price as well. 
There's a place to play darts, so after eating we just hanged around the darts area playing with the game. It was my first time ever playing darts, thought by my friends and it was fun. I'm kinda like this game cause it's new to me and it needs skills to win the game. I think this game is suitable to play with friends and have some chit-chatting session. That's why they normally have it in lounge. LOL.

Cakes and pudding

Well, last time there's a few more diploma friends but they are not here with us anymore.
T.T

I got wishes from old friends back in my hometown. They still remember my birthday, how good it is huh. I purposely do not want to put in on Facebook to let others know cause 1, I don't wanna make myself busy replying all those wishes. 2, I don't like the red button notification appear on my phone and I need to keep on pressing the button in order to get rid of the red notifications. Yeah, I know that's one of the sickness I got. Thanks for all the celebrations and wishes, I'll never forget it. :D


Merry Christmas and blessed birthday ❤︎ Part 1

One fun fact I think it's true is that when you get older, you'll start to look back and miss all the memories that you had. Yeah, that's what I did every end of the year. Christmas time is always a great time to chill and catch up with friends, and I'll get wishes for my birthday. It's a sign of getting one year older. Haha... Well, I still won't admit it cause I'm still young and free. I had a blast this year, for both of the celebrations. Gonna note it down here so that I can look back for future years to come.

I met my fancy and lovely friends at Selangor for a birthday surprise. I was actually cheated and had no idea what was the program on that day, the flow and everything. Am not the person to go to a place without planning. And, with this bunch of friends, it turned out incredibly great. We were just awesome at doing all these surprises. hahaha... But the most important thing I think is making effort to keep up the bonding of our friendship since we are now far apart.

Morning Xyndy and I went to a cafe, Le Pont Boulangerie. An awesome place with superb interior design by a Japanese designer. The food was nice, the environment is good and it's so pretty to take photos. Bought the buns and ordered their breakfast and drinks. The food was not bad, but the matcha milk tea is awesome. I wish I can have it every morning to wake me up. I'm addicted to matcha already. Damn!

This is the matcha drink I'm so in love about. :D 
(Love my grey colour nails!)

The decorations for Christmas Day is just so pretty!



Their dining table, isn't it awesome? 
I asked the waiter where can I get tissue and spoon, he told me it inside the table. LOL




Xyndy told me this is their signature bridge inside the cafe.



We went to MidValley to meet up with Chui Wei. The Christmas decorations there were pretty too! I think the theme is flowers inside the glass house. It'll cost quite expensive though. Went to the Kuroshio Market where there's something like food streets selling a lot of food. Walked around, took photos and our next stop was The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf at Bangsar Village. We had our dinner there and gift exchange session. Walking out the building, there's a lot of light bulbs tangling around the branches of the trees. It's so romantic there. Suitable for couples to hang around, get some kissess and propose, maybe. hahaha... We continued our second round of eating desserts at Alexis Bistro & Wine Bar for my birthday celebration. Well, every year is an unforgettable birthday celebration for me cause they are just too special. I know I'm blessed with a bunch of good friends who'll spend their precious time celebrating it with me. ❤︎


Flowers in the glass house, so gorgeous!

Dinner at Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf

My gift exhange present! Love them all.


With my lovely girls and John was not it cause he helped us to take photos. haha

The tress are so pretty! I would like to see them every night.

Alexis's signature cakes. 

Well... I just notice that I'll probably get the wishlist items after I posted them in Instagram. hahaha... The dreams did come true. Thanks peeps! I got the huge doll, the mousse mask, candles and perfumes with great scents for my birthday presents. Gorwing up elegantly without missing the naiveté in my heart. I'll have them with me throughout the year until next Christmas comes. 

I have blessed days everyday. However, my days become meaningful with great people, sharings and meaningful activities. Hope the friends surround me would stay great and healthy always. Love you guys!
