Apparently a few of my great grand uncles used to serve in the monarchy in China. Of course they all got sent to be executed when communism rose up. One of them escaped by jumping down the truck that was onwards certain death. I really admire his courage for even attempting that. Because I know that if it were me in his shoes, I would probably have quietly accepted my fate, because the fear of being caught in the future, or of being chased in the present, sometimes scares me more than death. It’s what my nightmares are made of.

Round & Round

11 Feb

A schoolmate said that I reminded her of IKEA. Not that I mind, because IKEA takes some of the best photos ever. I recently got a mini-brochure in the mail and those photographs had me swearing to work for them T^T Also, some of their ads make me laugh or are simply awesome XD

I thought I’d be able to fuse with birdie here but it didn’t exactly work out :(

Here’s another animation! I had fun… I think too much fun. I really love photoshoots like this when I have the time to go slightly crazy XD

Sushi Boxes

6 Nov

This place was next to the generators for powering the canteen upstairs. One of the boxes had the word ‘sushi’ on it, and I thought it was amusing  :D

Peppermint Butterfly

27 Jun

We went to fly kites! Also, I finally opened the peppermint-coloured leggings that I’d bought from Kuching half a year ago XD

The beautiful paper butterfly kite from China! You can see that I was being a kite-idiot and faced the wrong direction from the wind in one frame here hahaha! XD
(Btw that kite in the background with the long tail flying up was one monstrous beast and totally made of win!)

It was the only successful kite from the 5 kites we’d brought <33 But a few hours later at night, it suddenly dropped and upon retrieving it, we found that the top right wing had fallen off… never to be found again, because we had tied additional spools of string to the kite and it was pretty high up in the sky orz

I had some fun in the dark! People walking past stared and wondered wth I was doing erractically waving the torchlight in front of nobody XDD

I drew the wings first then estimated the position I had to stand… and this was on the first try!

The second one was more of a failure, but I like it much better (and probably the only picture that shows the earrings) XDD

And so went my first light painting attempt! (After more than a year’s procrastination hehe…)


1 Feb

I was feeling quite saddened at first so I decided to make an effort (i.e. put out more newspapers) in my newly cleaned room (omg there was a floor?!), and everything turned out much better after the photoshoot :D

Very few people I know can bend their feet inwards! But that’s only because they can bend them the other way…

‘Student Advisory Centre’ sticker after donating small change to students approaching people with donation bags today. It’s the first time I’d heard of it and after asking one of the students, it’s for pupils who aren’t well-off and need help paying for their tuition fees.  

Skull tabi socks! There used to be glitter but they dropped off, which is fine by me.

In better spirits there.

I also made a very rudimentary slouched walk cycle in .gif format :D

I swear it’s only the combination of the upward strain from the slouch and the downward strain of the hands-in-pockets that made my butt so pronounced in the pinafore!

I had the idea of a walk cycle running throughout my wardrobe photos for a while, but I guess it’s also another idea to be shelved because planning stuff tends to fry my brain :P
