Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Brothers Battle Royale: The Morning After

What a crazy weekend! Thoroughly enjoyed it but at the expense of my two dear kidneys. No. I am not about to die anytime soon.

So there were some readers who were wondering if a slug fest ever did ensue after the fight between the brothers. Fret not! Your question will be answered in today's cartoon!

This week's cartoon is short and simple as it is only one frame long! Sorry if it is not up to your usual expectations but I was going for something heartwarming and containing moral value for once. Sometimes these bros of mine are not all just madness as they can be really awesome (though weird) people. Here is how:

Do read PART 1 and PART 2 here just in case you are just only tuning in and unsure of what is going on.

Best brothers award

Wow. These brothers only just fought the night before and they are already back to being best friends. It's amazing but I'm sure many people are like them as well.

Just some translation help for those who do not understand the language of Bahasa Melayu:

  • Gaduh besar = Big fight
  • Maki = Scold
  • Tolak-tolak = Shove
  • Naik angin = Get mad
  • Bertumbuk = Trade fists
  • Air Dicincang Tidak Akan Putus = (literal translation) Water can never be sliced in half (*not sure if this is correct?)

Hmm....Apparently Daryl has not been appearing much in the comics lately. So I am just going to slot him here randomly just in case anyone misses him.

Daryl: Never giving up the hunt...

That's it for Monday's comic! Hope you enjoyed it!

Chinese New Year is less than two weeks away! Do stay tuned for a (predictable) surprise!

Happy Birthday to one of the bros, Jon, who just turned 24 this year! Happy birthday bro! You owe me a kidney.

Brothers Battle Royale

What day is it?

Okay, so this is an unusual post which does not adhere to any of my usual time of cartoon uploads but here's another comic for you guys this week! Surprise! Double comic week FTW!

This situation occurred right after the "Clam to the Head" incident. If you are just tuning in, you can view Part 1 HERE to see what happened before this strip.

This episode is a little wordy but I won't say much lest I spoil this one for you. Enjoy!

Wow... Just wow... 

So polite!

This really happened. Turns out Shamus is such a mindful guy when it comes to his own public outrage. The watching public's safety is his priority concern. Make sure they feel safe and won't be sucked in.

I just realised that this is the FIRST TIME I have really included a girl in my comic! Talk about diversity! No wonder some people have told me so far the series has a little homoerotic sense to it! Well, congrats to the couple who were standing nearby during the fight between the two brothers. Sorry we didn't get your names but you have been unsuspectingly cartoonized and featured in my series!

If you have noticed, I had bleeped out the usual foul language that are usually strewn all over this series. Consider it as an experiment to see if you guys prefer it like this or not. Personally I feel it adds to the humour indirectly but let me know your thoughts in the comments section below:)

Remember guys, if you are going to fight in public, make sure to be mindful of the people watching you.

Clam to the Head

Wow, yet another slow week and Monday seemed to have found its way around the corner again! For those who were expecting something last Thursday, I am really sorry I did not have the time and resources to be able to put something up nor notify you guys due to my real life commitments (which sucks, apparently).

Yes, I know it's been slow the past week but hopefully things will pick up soon! Uploads of my cartoons once per week is too long of a wait for internet readers' standards but due to the 'polished' *ehem* nature of my cartoons, it is not easy to come up with something more than once per week. Do you guys think I should reduce my cartoon's quality (maybe slightly) to increase the content upload frequency for this blog? Let me know in your comments!

Anyhow, here's another comic to start off your week once again! It happened a few weeks ago during one of the bros night out of having some "kerang bakar", meaning: roasted clams for our international readers out there ;)

Stop splashing clam juices everywhere!
Just in case you are wondering, the two characters, Shamus and Jamus are brothers hence Jamus calls Shamus "kor" which means big brother in a dialect called Hokkien:)

Looks like the initial format of having a white backdrop did not really catch on due to lack of response. I know mostly the responses were to have a white backdrop but I shall stick to the grey at the moment as I feel it makes the cartoon colors stand out even more and look even larger. We'll see how it goes if I do get more responses to change it back to white.

Anyway, for those who would like to be updated through FB in a more personal manner, do add yourself to the Fan Page and I will drop personal updates to you each time there are new updates or postings on the blog! Do not worry I will not spam your FB inbox no matter how tempting that is;) I also have uploaded some sketches of my cartoons (before being colored and totally RAW) in the Gallery so you can check it out if you are the type who likes to see how many cartoons look like before and after! Don't forget to LIKE the Facebook Official Page as well and leave your shout outs there!

Shamus, go take a bath. You smell like clams.

Your Personality From The Way You Sleep

This time I feel the week has gone by very slowly so the usual Monday caught me up in the ass again did not occur as I managed to finish this week's strip earlier than usual without the consistent rushing of finishing my cartoon on time. Perhaps maybe there are no greeting cards to make in a couple of weeks (but Chinese New Year coming! Do expect a CNY greeting card from me when it comes!) So enjoy this early upload of this week's comic!

This week I want to post a "Know Your Bros Better" like the one I did about instant noodles since a lot of people loved that kind of style in the comic (it also happens to be the first comic I ever uploaded!) so I guess its no harm exploring that again. Perhaps more like it would come soon!

You know sometimes people say your sleeping style defines a little bit of your personality, so this is my take on it. Enjoy!

I had to do a little research on my bros to come up with this. I actually found out these are the REAL styles they actually sleep in! I know I am being creepy by looking at how my bros sleep.

Yeah, I guess my analysis on personality based on sleeping styles only applies to the bros. But I do hope its helpful to define your personality (if you do find some similarities of the styles with yoursefl!) :P

For those who are just tuning in, you might not understand the joke on the fetus style. Its actually a running gag that has been going on in this webcomic. Check out HERE to understand what I mean.

In case you are wondering, no all of us do not sleep on the same bed like how you see in this week's comic. Occasionally, yes though.

It's been a hectic and tiring weekend for me so  I guess it time for bed right after I post this up. I'll see you  next week! Unless I do want to post a surprise comic on Thursday ;)

First Comic of 2011

Happy January and Happy New Year everyone! Hope each and everyone one of you had a blast!

This is a little bit late but I managed to rush through and finish it slightly over the usual time hence the slightly late upload of this week's comic! (My latest upload time on Monday is usually at 1a.m. GMT+8) The celebration over the weekend almost made me to not have enough time to come up with something over the weekend. Hope it's readable enough and not too messy! (The frames this round has more elements in it but I guess since it's the new year I wanted ALL the bros to be in this week's comic)

Since its the new year, I did a slight change on the usual format of my comics (HINT: The usual dark grey backdrop has been replaced with white) So, what do you think? Grey or white? Need your honest opinion on this ;)

Anyway, this is the story of what transpired during my new year eve's celebration with my bros.
Don't worry, Jamus is still able to hear things.

Have a great 2011 ahead, guys and gals!
