Plain / 素顏


Today we are still plain. To be exact, we are well-framed, but we are not on the stage yet. Stacked at the corner, people might mistake us for unwanted trash in the storage.



The young man from the mover's will help us put on bullet-proof coats. We are going on a long-distance trip to get to our stage. He'll take care of us with all the tenderness.

And tomorrow, we'll shine like the sun...

First Challenge of the Day / 本日挑戰




First challenge of the day: The webpages I designed last night are not readable online. Even my roses feel like weeping...

To reach my goal of becoming a professional, I overcame my fear and dislike for computer and registered for classes on webpage design. I sometimes have problems following the teacher. Other times I am so tired that I come near to falling asleep. But the lessons are REALLY useful. When I figure the whole thing out, I want to give the teacher a big hug and kiss (and of course I do not.) The biggest lesson is that life is full of infinite possibilites. How I hated computer in the past and how I find it so much fun now!

Well, the trivial technological problems can't baffle me. I'll get professional help soon. I'll come up with a gorgeous website by the coming summer!

New members / 新成員

In the spring 2006 series of "Shiny Dancing Girls," we have recruited two new members with amazing potential. They are separately Little Baobao and Missy Kim. Here are their personal profiles:


Little Ai-Bao: Two months old, 85 cm tall. His mother walked A LOT during the last few months of pregnancy, so Ai-Bao was born with very strong legs. His expertise is kicking. He has signed a lifelong contract with Shing Dancing Gal Troupe. (Hmm, I hope you don't mind the fact that he's a boy. We need some boys too!")


Missy Kim: 16-year-old young gal, 155 cm tall. Her limbs are not especially supple, but the coach of our troupe believes that she has a promising future, due to her ABUNDANT passion. Her expertise is dancing and telling jokes at the same time.


Please keep updated on the latest news of "Shiny Dancing Girls" and our two figures!


Note: I had a strong impulse to change my blog banner, and I was rather interested in continuing my dancing gal series. I thought of two very lovely people on my way to work this morning--Ai-bao, who was just born and Little Kim, whose life is often a mess. Well, I just want to have some fun out of nothing. I hope you won't be bored by my senseless humor.

Glimpse into My Perfectionism / 完美人格症候群




I once worked in the gallery. But I was only responsible for writing introduction about the antiques. There were professionals for other important jobs. Since this is my first exhibition, I can't but rely on my instincts and limited ability. For one thing, I am insistent on full preparation of details. In the beginning, I was worried about having to take care of so many trivial parts. After I got down to work, I found the process rather interesting. In the end I even derived a huge sense of achievement.

If you can't come to my exhibition in person, you can find in the attached photo the cards I made for my paintings. Can you believe that I printed such beautiful babes with the willful Epson printer we have at home? Different colors represent different sections. You can find my personalized logo--the dancing girl on all the cards. Now you can't say that I am sloppy in every way. Here I have shown you what a perfectionist I am...

Here I'd like to thank Auntie Chou again for laminating the cards for me. Thank again those who help me in all the ways imaginable. If one day you need a coordinator for your exhibition, you know whom to call!

Another Lovely Surprise / 美麗的驚喜


How come my painting was put in the newspaper today? As a matter of fact, I already waited for two months. I had no idea that it would be published today. Fortunately, my dad informed me from work. If you read Chinatimes this morning, you'll see Chichi saying hello to you from France! Though it's an old piece, I am still thrilled!

Invitation Card / 邀請卡



I finally have the invitation cards for my exhibition done. I would like to let you take a look. It took "us" almost one month to design and print it. There are many people I have to thank, especially Lu and Hueiling. Of course, I do not forget those who've always been there to support me emotionally.

There are surprises in the card. I want to reserve them for the moment when you receive it!

Crazy Olivia 21 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 21


Olivia is really angry and disappointed with herself. Her original plan was to impress Mr. Sea Dragon. She ends up causing him lifelong trauma. Her frustration gives her the desire to kill herself.

Crazy Olivia 20 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 20


When Olivia is about to do her "once-in-a-life"performance, the loop is gone! Meanwhile, the rain is getting heavier. She can't see anything.


"Mamamia!" Mr. Sea Dragon groans. The fire loop slides by his side. He has never been under such a huge shock in his entire life.

Crazy Olivia 19 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 19


Then it starts to rain. In the chaos, the shark fidgets and thus the moves the fire loop. Olivia lunges forward. Mr. Sea Dragon has no idea what is going on because panic has totally consumed him.

Crazy Olivia 17 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 17


What scares the shit out of Mr. Sea Dragon and the big shark? The latter, who didn't know the definition of the word "weep," sheds the first tear in his life.


Olivia, after winning the shark's heart, thinks of a really wacky idea. She believes that jumping through the loophole on fire will definitely attract Mr. Sea Dragon's attention.

Souvenir / 紀念


J'ai l'habitude d'habiter dans un endroit en pensant à un autre sans auto-contrôle. Il me prenait quelques mois de me convaincre combien ma vie ici est formidable mais j'ai commencé à m'ennuyer. La France me manque pendant toute la semaine. Ma nostalgie est tellement puissante que j'ai complètement oublié les raisons pour lesquelles je l'avais rejetée. En ce moment, je ressemble à une femme mariée bien protégée par son mari fidèle et fiable dans leur mariage mais dont coeur est attaché à l'homme idéal de liaison.

Crazy Olivia 16 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 16


A miracle happens when the SHARK sees Olivia. Transparent water drips from her smooth skin as she emerges from the sea. She looks at him puzzled, but the innocence in her eyes only makes him fall deeper for her. Suddenly, all his "manliness" turns into tender feeling. He can't help "blushing..."

Crazy Olivia 15 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 15


Ah, it is the SHARK that scares Mr. Sea Dragon away. Look how it bites!

Crazy Olivia 14 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 14


Olivia believes that Mr. Sea Dragon must have been moved by her sincerity. But things do not look good when he is seen escaping in fright as if he saw ghosts...

Thursday, March 16, 2006

Crazy Olivia 13 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 13


Olivia believes that her failure results from the fact that she can't swim. This only further motivates her to learn swimming. She makes really amazing progress within an extremely short period of time. Her determination is quite admirable.


Olivia, again, kind of relies on her intelligence. Well, to be honest, it's not easy to make such RAPID progress...

Crazy Olivia 12 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 12


The waves force apart Olivia's stepping pads. She falls all the way to the bottom of the sea, almost choked to death by the bushy seaweeds. "Help! Oh please don't be so cruel with me..." She groans.

Tuesday, March 14, 2006

Crazy Olivia 11 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 11


Unfortunately, Mr. Sea Dragon is blind to all the efforts Olivia makes. He sees only the devouring waves behind Olivia. He is so scared that he thinks of nothing but escape before they come upon him.

Sunday, March 12, 2006

Crazy Olivia 10 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 10


Olivia sees nothing but Mr. Sea Dragon. She has recovered from the previous failure. She is back in water again and what's more, she is not drowned!


It turns out that she cheats a little bit. So what? Wisdom matters too!

Crazy Olivia 9 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 9


The waves on the sea are getting wilder. It's as if they could eat people up.

Saturday, March 11, 2006

Crazy Olivia 8 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 8


Olivia makes her way back from the SCARY SEA on her own. She is exasperated. She finds herself really useless. She can't even swim, and what in hell made she believe that she could synchro swim for Mr. Sea Dragon? She then makes a serious determination--"I AM GOING TO MASTER THE ART OF SURVIVING IN THE SEA!"

Thursday, March 09, 2006

Crazy Olivia 7 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 7


Everything goes well until Olivia remembers that she CAN'T SWIM! She struggles with death in the sea, yet the gorgeous Mr. Sea Dragon sees nothing. He surfs as usual and it seems that he's pretty proud of himself too.

Crazy Olivia 6 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 6


When she makes her jump into the water, Olivia thinks of conquering Mr. Sea Dragon with elegant synchro dancing. She is so proud of her idea that she moves her two legs above the water cheerfully.

Wednesday, March 08, 2006

Crazy Olivia 5 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 5


Tired of thinking, Olivia decides to stick to her motto--"Action is the best policy." She rushes into the sea, taking off her clothes along the way. Inside her feelings are as powerful as the dancing waves.

Crazy Olivia 4 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 4


Olivia is troubled. She knows that she is in love, but what do people do to further develop the relationship? Mr. Sea Dragon is right in front of her, yet she is at sea. His gorgeous face lingers in her memory. It seems that Olivia will not stop thinking about him...

Insect / 昆蟲

This is actually my first try at ATC for our project "29,000 Floating Ducks." In the meanwhile, I combine it with the theme of Illo Friday this week.

Summer, for me, means a season of music performed by cicadas. I had very quiet summers, but it felt like something was missing.



Crazy Olivia 3 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 3


Mr. Sea Dragon rides on the seawaves and performs invincible moves. Within a few minutes, he has completely captured Olivia's heart. It beats faster and faster while all the blood rushes all the way to her head. She wonders, "Oh, is this the so called 'love'?"

Crazy Olivia 2 / 瘋狂奧莉薇 2


One day, Olivia finds the sea by accident. It's a whole-new world for her. She even spots the legendary "Sea Dragon," an extremely well-known surfer.
