Botanical garden / 植物園


Sketching in the botanical garden in summer, I have the company of mosquitoes and sweat. 


   Also, a crowd of passionate photographers who are eager to record the beauty of lotus.

Trial / 試煉


Before I am aware of it, I have become a pretentious and bad-tempered adult. Time for me to meditate and shake off these annoying shackles!

The Lin Family Mansion & Garden / 林本源園邸


In Shanghai, we traveled at a lightning speed. I didn't have any time for sketching, and now my heart craves for the classical gardens. Well, it's funny that I am asked the question, "Where are you from?" It must have something to do with the fact that I adore exotic stuff so much that I myself appear kind of exotic too.

Two stories / 兩個故事


My college friend is finally getting married. I cut out two fish as I am making a wedding card for her. 


The two fish, pasted onto my journal, are about to begin a new story......

Paper butterfly / 紙蝴蝶


It's just a paper butterfly, but kids chase it as if it were the latest design of Cartier, as if nothing is more precious than it in the whole world.

Stay passionate / 熱情滿滿


In the children's museum today, the herbarium is filled with little kids. In fact, we haven't had so many young guests for a long time. To show our sincerity, we have a strong cast of seven volunteers to wait on them. 


     It's amazing that the children do not hesitate to answer every question we ask. I am also moved by the hands that never put down and the innocent singing of the butterfly song. Though sometimes the situation is quite chaotic, I don't mind at all. 


     I have a talk with a friend at noon about my passion that grows with age. To be honest, I have no clue where it will lead me, but I am sure of one thing: I can't be happier when meeting people who share the same passion with me. We can work together to focus on one task, and for now it is to create a wonderful memory for children on an originally ordinary Saturday afternoon. Such a simple thing can   place me in seventh heaven.

My dreams always / 初心


I've been feeling kind of unwell. There're always some very minor setbacks. However, whatever happens, I remember to stick to my initial dreams, which helps me to hold tight onto my goals. The frustration only serves to make me more determined.
