Sister gave me a picture from SaSa (a 4 year-old girl). Jackie asked her why there are black clouds on the flower. SaSa replied that if no cloud, no rain. No rain, the flower can't grow. It is sensible...right? I hope the flower will look beautiful after rain. God bless :)
I will leave Hong Kong tomorrow and will back to campus this year. I wish everything will be fine and there will be another tight schedule. Let's settle down in London, connect with internet and we will see you again very soon....Not excited, cos' I am so sleeeeeeeepy..... : )
I was regarded as a monster when I said I like visiting exhibition...but we visited these 2 museums today: National Center for Traditional Arts and LanYang Museum. It is nice to know more about traditional arts and it is easy to my families. I prayed at the temple...and the god thought that I was not sincere...he did not agree with me...
I planned to YiLan years ago, but the construction of LanYang Museum was not finished. It always rains in Taiwan, so the architect thought of combination of stone and stainless steel to create different visual effect. I like it so much : ) I am interested in Chinese painting recently...maybe I am old enough to understand it now..
I have finally got the chance to watch the Animated Version of the "Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival". I left my families today and visit it myself, but I did not feel lonely when I heard the visitors talking about the painting. Surely I could not give up the chance to visit Taipei Fine Arts Museum, whereas Nara Yoshimoto's works are being exhibited with other young Japanese artists.
It is my 3rd time in Taiwan, and I visited other new towns other than Taipei. My parents are getting old and we are not sure if there will be another family trip. I enjoyed my family time and hoped my parents will not argue again and again...I am proud of my sister cos' she is always strong and smart. I hope she will start a new happy life in Taipei soon.
I was reluctant to sleep no matter at home or on flight. I enjoyed watching movie on the plane and I hoped I'd finish it before landing. It was "I love Hong Kong". I think most of the HKers will laugh with the story. I enjoyed staying in front of the screen after I resigned. It's the only way to relax, apart from drawing. I was watching Mi's concert and TV programme during the midnight, before I left HK.
We spent 2 nights in HsinChu, the place where my sister works. Dad enjoyed a lot at Hakka Museum and he chatted with the tour guide for a long time. I remembered my Hakka friend spoke in Hakka language with his families, and I never understand what he was talking. I forgot to bring my sketchbook, so I stamped on my expired Taiwan visa.
We ate shaved ice every night and it is popular in Taiwan. I sat on my sister's scooter and she gave me a 15min drive around her apartment. She is so cool! I am never be brave to control any engine, no matter it's car, scooter or even bicycle...Although we've spent most of our day in cafe, I enjoyed the family time.
I had hotspring with my sister at hostel in YiLan every night. We had nice roosted chicken tonight, with snack and beer afterward. I'd chat with my sister quietly in the bathroom and I will miss her. The weather was poor for visit in the coming day. Everyone was watching the weather forecast and I was watching the book of Brigitte Lin.
It was boring to stay indoor, while all museums closed on Monday. Let's visit the port, market and other historical buildings. We will be busy to visit museums in our last day in Yilan.
