After such a visual drought here at this blog, I've finally got some pics...cos I only JUST managed to get my actual computer which died and spearheaded my snowballing "good grief!" times...back to life again!
So to celebrate, some random and possibly entertaining long lost pics...but for the one modelling the blue hat you made me: check your mail, lol...I could have sent you Version.GrossPink but I think seeing a scowl is not the optimal way to start a day, lol!
So anyway let's start this with some "Culture"...Oriental style! I went to this calligraphy expo/exhibition earlier this year and loved this abstract "worm style" a.k.a "chao shu"...should be vertical but I like to look at it as an artwork and can't read it anyway.
The master in action-it's actually a very dynamic and dramatic procedure...I still have no idea how she managed to keep her beautiful peach silk top free of black splotches! Talk about skill...lol
And then we got to try our hand at it...this was my first ever time to pick up a brush & ink -my attempt at "yun" (cloud)...she showed it once and then we had to copy...no mean feat...the character is barely recognisable apparently but I think mine looks pretty and artistic regardless, lol...more Japanese than Chinese looking though, I think. My experienced calligrapher friend refers to this as "Your Ugly Ass Worm". I think she's just jealous ; ) Beautiful even if I must say so myself :)
So anyway unrelated but adding to this picture exhibition is my Beloved Mario-esque Mushroom clip magnets...HO you will recognise them since I sent you their Abhorrent and Inferior Pink Cousins which I hope are still alive and well and have not been assassinated by any one of your three
And a funny sign from an old board I found recently from at least 2 or 3 years ago...which reflects that the working like a dog lifestyle has been a long ass haul for me :p
Okay, and what more logical way to end this post than to end with...BEANS.
I was cooking these up the other day and noticed in soaking, deriving great pleasure from the vibrant colour combination...Red and Green Beans...Adzuki and Mung (Hong Dou and Lu Dou respectively...awesome food-herbs by the way :)
That's all for now! Busy Busy Tired...
