I had a wonderful encounter during my stay at home for this Chinese New Year, have met my second favourite book Point Omega by Don Delillo. Although I did not finished it yet and did not understand throughly, but I was very intrigued by the book, found inner peace. I am going to re-read it soon..
I really like one passage and it sounds like - The true life is not reducible to words spoken or written, not by anyone, ever. The true life takes place when we're alone, thinking, feeling, lost in memory, dreamingly self - aware, the submicroscopic moments.

I have taken a new challenge after Christmas, always have fear of fabric work, but I thought why not just give it a try ? It was inspired by other fabric illustrations around, they have intrigued me deeply, sometimes I wanted to wear a skirt or a tote bag with all these handmade images on them. So I thought maybe I should make my own, and found out I really enjoyed the process, I stitched with great joy and satisfaction. I have made a handy size of tote bag as an experiment, picking all favourite colors coral pink, noble green, deep red...and took my mum's buttons from her 'treasure', the three line on the bag was taken from the last passage of my little writing (have a habit of writing a little when I was in the mood..) Wish to do more and more of this !

I want to do a painting to dedicate my love to tea, different tea taste like different people.
It is very interesting when I tried to list out particular tea which would match certain people.
Almost like a combination of elements from different friends, memories. I think I like that fellowon the lower right corner the most, she is a bit like myself ha ha.
At the dinning table is a painting about humanity, I am not a fan of fur but haven't reach the
extreme of protesting it. It is just funny when I look at those fashionable gals/guys wearing fur and bounce around on the street. The painting features two trendy youngster enjoying a meal of some animals which are raise as cute pets, I used fairly tale colors to divert the attention of the cruel act towards the animals, like how people don't care about what is around them nowadays.
I did some changes on the first painting on wood, add a
the little head of the space-man.
