Prince Charmings &White Horses

Not everyone has a fairytale ending; im seeing it everyday. The young girl comes in first. Then, he comes without his marriage ring. They talk for a little less than an hour until the buffet last-call. Then she leaves with a room key under her faux-fur coat, who knows what else lies under it. He uses the bathroom, maybe at this point he would feel guilty, but no, he leaves after adjusting his tie in the mirror. pays the bill, leaves me a tip before he goes up the elevator.
There are some young girls that come in, married to big fat rich men; for what but a life of luxury. who is to blame but silly taylor swift? Romeos aren't just everywhere. But there are, indeed, some lucky juliets &ihope i will be one of them few.

Congratulations Leslie & Justin, Happy Engagement!

Photography by Daniela Degrassi. She takes adorable photos, capturing love at its most innocent. She snapped a few photos of my extended family and myself early june in sunny palo alto park. i especially love the one of me lifting up my two pretty sisters.
Currently i am working on a diptych for some lovelies i miss. don't forget to return to Hong Kong Garden next week!

A Soul-searching Summer

Angels on my guitar Summer 2010, Acrylics and Gloss Varnish

Summer2010 is a special one to me. Growing up is bittersweet, as soon as you realize, summer does not exist for you anymore. The job, the bills, &maybe even the lucky kids one day. For me, I did all that i loved and needed for weeks and days, removing any obligations or worries in my way. Then, going down the list of neverending to-dos.

Time cheats &you don't realize it. But learning how to play guitar is a beautiful thing. I promise that self-tutoring is not as challenging as it seems!

The origin of excitement and fun comes mainly from a strong-built character and personality. Adventures can wait, first fix all that needs to be fixed inside! So it's your turn before summer ends. This calls for a cup of steamy cappuccino, colorful macaroons, &a nice read in hand!
