Painter


I can't believe we finally finished painting this mural!!! It took 3.5 days... The hardest part was climbing up and down the ladder and reaching far to paint because the wall was slanted.... 

I feel like we did a pretty good job. Although the colours didn't turn out exactly as planned. It was hard but fun. 

I've always had a weird dream to become a painter of signs, so I guess I actually did it!

sunset in mongkok




i love all the signs

golden arches versus golden sunset


street lights- the manmade kind and the natural kind

the painted lines versus the lines of light


If you google sunsets it's usually going to be sunsets at beaches or over lakes or the sun behind hills or something like that. But I discovered that sunsets in the city are much more interesting. I went to pick up my business cards today. People were hurrying home and waiting to cross streets. the sunlight hit me in the eye. I followed the sunset around Mong Kok... between buildings and through alleys.. it's hard to tell where it comes from.. but eventually the sun set and i went home.. it's fun to live in the city.

Chinese New Year holiday





Maybe it was a conversation i had with Lynette. I feel like friends aren't forever. They come and go, just because that's the way life is. Some move. Some don't like you any more. Some have kids. Some work all the time. It's kind of sad... But it's also beautiful because for a moment in your life you crossed paths.

Lynette says she doesn't have friends. Well I don't have a lot either. And they are all weird.

Anyway yesterday we all went to the wetland park and saw mudskippers and non existent butterflies and all kinds of birds. We rolled around on the grass and pointed at trees and turtles and the sky. Typical city people.

Maybe it's just me but i get all emotional thinking one day i might forget all this. So i should write it down. I think it's because after popo died, i keep thinking that everybody might die soon. Kind of creepy but it's true right?

Parallel universe

Here on earth
We mourn for our loss and pain
While in a parallel universe 
Angels celebrate 
for their gain

Compassion

You say, a world of compassion, 
And I think of rainbows and unicorns
And kittens and new borns
Then you say, the meaning of compassion is, suffering with.
I wonder what kind of myth that is.

Nephews

First I had one nephew
And then I had two.
Few years later,
I had another, 
who knew?
Soon there'll be a whole crew
of nephews, old and new.
When will it all stop?
Just one niece
will do.

today

My grandma died today
My head hurt like hell.
I know I'll see her one day
in heaven where all is well.

When we meet again
I'll give her a great big hug
She won't recognize me
Because I'll be ninety three.
