指南心 The Golden Compass

My Golden Compass diagram was inspired by this article.

How do I even begin, to depict a series of curious events that one would think only exists in Lemony Snicket’s soliloquy?  Since last November, LK family underwent a witch-hunt in a modern day private elementary school.  The saga started with an unsatisfactory parent teacher conference, then the principal office meeting, and when we challenged the school administration

新年 To Finish What I Started

I started this portrait a couple years ago, painted it here and there, added embellishment from time to time... It was meant to remotely portraying infamous Countess Elizabeth Bathory but turned out resembling Lady Mary's nemesis, Mabel Lane Fox(!)  The transformation sort of parallels my soulful journey from glum to comic relief :). That's it for now.  Busy, busy January.
眼看一月份部落格要開天窗了, 急急忙忙登幅幾年前開始的, 陸陸續續添筆的畫像. 提醒自己別次次三分鐘熱度, 虎頭蛇尾 :(  二月底我母親生日, 近幾年母女磨擦對峙亦趨溫緩, 或許是看著小V日漸長大, 我突然回憶起年幼時的我如何孺慕父母吧!  仍十分美麗的母親似乎擁有新的追求者(怎麼有點Downton Abbey Season 5的味道?!) 所以新年無啥了不起的志向, 希望自己行事有始有終, 我愛的人都能幸福 :)

忽忽這年 Baby, It's Cold Outside

When I heard Taylor Swift's version of Last Christmas on the radio, I knew I am officially old(where is George Michael?).  Last Christmas we were feasting in the exquisitely beautiful Kyoto and less than ten blog posts after, we reached the end of 2014 already, sigh!  I summarized the year's learnings in my usual off beat greeting card:
猶記去年聖誕夜於初雪京都喫鰻魚飯, 怎麼愰眼2014已至歲末?!

蹺家記 The Escapist in Me

歲末聚會多, 萬聖節感恩節接踵而至, 勞動階級要俗務擺兩旁放假出國不易.  然舊金山灣依山傍水, 當旅行癮發作還是可駕愛駒馳騁, 就近求解藥:
Local Trip 1.

T&L故事頗富爭議性, 深具女性主義色彩, 年代久遠記不得自己到底有沒有欣賞過這部電影, 即使有, 當時太年少, 無法明瞭於生命蒼涼的控訴.  不過有心人都記得兩位演技精湛的美艷女主角Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis和萬人迷Brad Pitt初登大銀幕演個小混混的痞樣.

有約東京 Meet Me in Tokyo


Feeling lucky to be able to stop by Tokyo for some design inspiration before the official work trip started thanks to my understanding boss and my in-laws helping out.  On his way back from Singapore to the Bay Area, on my way to South East Asia from San Francisco, Mr. LK and I met in Tokyo for dinner and coffee.
此趟初秋環亞大出差前決定給自己ㄧ趟小小靈感之旅: 過境東京三天!  剛好LK先生自新加坡公務結束回程暫停日本, 也多得公婆不久前來美國幫忙照顧小V, 夫妻倆能夠於異地約會, LK先生還替我先扛回大包小包的戰利品 :)
