A true friend is consistently willing to put your happiness before your friendship.
A true friend will not refrain from telling you something you do not want to hear, something that may even risk fracturing the friendship, if hearing it lies in your best interest. A true friend inspires you to live up to your best potential, not to indulge your weaknesses and troubles.
As a parent, it would be a huge pride and joy to watch our child become that true friend and have that true friend in their lives.
As a parent, we want to remind our child that “we need to be the change we wish to see in the world”; to be that true friend.
Be the kind one who gives assistance.
Be the supportive one that lends a shoulder to cry on.
Be the faithful keeper of secrets.
Be the good friend that one respects and trusts.
And in return, he or she will have true friends for life.
Backstory of the Original Painting
The original painting titled “Choo Choo” was the first painting that Mishell painted for her first child’s nursery. It was coined as ‘the’ painting that launched Milc by Mishell, back in 2012.
“Choo Choo” has now become one of our most beloved prints by both adults and children – one that epitomises the joy and the simplicity of life as well as colours that Mishell is passionate about.

Our Personalised Limited Edition Prints – How does it Work?
When Mishell thought of creating limited edition prints of her unique Art pieces, she wanted to go one step further than just a print. She herself is a fan of all things personalised because she believes that it makes something that much more special.
Therefore, for all our Prints in our Happiness Collection, you can personalise and make it YOUR own print. You can add your name and other personal details like birthdate, nationality or even your favourite quote to the artwork (at no additional cost*) – subject to the possibility of including such details in the artwork.
You will also be able to specify your preference for where to place the details and we will do our best to make you happy. We will, however, reserve the right to the final artistic voice (if you don’t mind).
How it Works – Simple!
- Indicate the details (and preferences, if you have any) on the comments upon checkout.
- We will contact you via email to confirm your order
- We will then send you a draft mockup of your personalised print – until you are happy* with the Artwork.
- We send the Artwork for professional archival printing
- Once printed, Mishell will sign, number and date the artwork and Ship it to wherever you are!
- Framing services will currently only be available to Singapore and Malaysia addresses only (we want to keep shipping costs low and pragmatic for you!)
*We allow up to two iterations of the artwork for free, after which an hourly charge of USD$35 will apply for further changes.
The Personal Touch
Each Limited Edition Print will be numbered (out of 20) and personally signed and dated by Mishell, the artist.
Each Print will also be accompanied by a personal note from Mishell, dedicated to the Child (because we believe in the importance of the personal touch!).
If you would like any further personalisation to your gift, simply let us know – we always love adding that extra bit of magic to make it special!
