Chinese New Year Card

28 December 2008

To my family|家人放心!


I know my sisters are worry about me, I just wanna to say, I will be ok! So, here's the illo for them to let them know, no worry! I will take good care of myself!
Mean time, Look! Ah Boy lost his front teeth!

let me share my boy sweet and naive moments...

Last night, Ah Boy told me he doesn't want to grow older, when he reach 9 years old, he will return back to one year old baby and start again, this way he can stay baby forever, he said, he don't want to grow in teen age, (maybe because I feed him too much information about kid reach teen-age, act really weird, and it's parent night-mare handling children at this age!)
He also said if he stay as baby, we mom and dad will remain young and never grow old! :)
Chinese New Year is around the corner, I wish all Happy Chinese New Year, Year of OX!
I will have more card posted later.

我知道姐姐們担心我!放心!我會沒事!我會保重!放心!

仔仔blogblog趣事舆你分享:

前星期在工作時間,電話中我遇上一個野蠻人,被氣壞一時,回到家,我跟老公仔仔吐苦,老公支特我又分析和安慰,也告許仔仔媽咪不開心,一起逗一逗媽咪開心,之後去shopping‧

那天晚上仔仔在睡前跟我說‧‧‧‧‧
仔仔:媽咪,以後再有這種人burry妳,妳跟他說:" I cannot talk to you now!"然後pretend妳smash the phone and hand up! Then 妳 walk away, a speed walk away!"
媽咪我:....六歲的仔仔,我們曾說過一些欺凌和如何去應付,原來他懂!

過了周日,第二天在我上班前,他起來跟我說:Have a good day, Mom!記得我尋晚同妳講D嘢啦! 唔好理D衰人!do a speed walk, walk away啦!

我感恩!謝謝!

農曆新年快到,預先跟大家恭賀!畫了幾張賀卡、即將送上!有兴趣可以随便下載!

Tag - my facts!

I've been tag by Shannon..some one I met in IF community, also a great illustrator...
I am going to tell 7 interesting facts about myself..

I don't know what can I tell you? The fact is I am a terrible writer, I can't express well in lettering, mess in my grammar like my illo above, no direction in English language, blur in the air (can't think of a sentence to start for quite a long time), and empty head....perhaps my Art speak my heart are much better in wording.

I love to draw since a kid, but I don't think I am a great artist, I have never attend any art school, but I am lucky to have a day job as Graphic artist, the fact is dream does come true if you believe it! of course hard work play a big part..

I just found out something related to my health, I must look after myself well, the fact is I can't take life for granted!

At work, no one know nor believe my real age, the fact is I look young at my age!Ha..
Feel young, simple hearted, be happy and energetic is my secret of staying young! :)

I love to watch cooking shows and if the recipe trigger my temptation, regardless how late it's, I will still cooke it! The fact is I am a food lover but lousy cooker.

My last interview for my current job: They ask me why I want to work there, I said: I need a job, and you are hiring, I need income to feed my family and health benefits plan, this company can fulfill my need ! That's why. ..... They may want to hear other reason????? Are there?
Surprisingly, they hire me! The facts is I am honest.. :) of course I must been the right candidate! :)

one more fact to list,, Hmmmmm ............. the fact is I am tire, I must go to bed!

My next tag victim will be

fill the list later......ZZZZZZZZzzzzzz

IF - Memories (2)

In that year, mom and I planted some sunflowers in our limited back yard area for the very first time. It grown so tall and it brighten up the whole yard, we both so excited seeing the flowers grow and blossom, we sat and chat for a long time while we enjoying looking at the sunflowers... and that year, mom passed away.....

Now, I plant sunflowers with my boy every summer in memory of my mom...

Routine

I use to have weekly routine entering my illustration to IF, hopping to favorites IF artist, lately I haven't been able to do so..Because my new job is quite tie up, work long hours, plus exhausted from the office political issues.....I am overwhelm, I am tired emotionally and physically. I still debate with myself, how long can I hang on, how much I can take? I think partly is my motivation in my ability! They offer me different position than I applied for, and for them to keeping me, they still give me some design job but I hardly have time to do it, because it's not my first priority in my job list.I miss my part-time job, in small print shop and my other casual job as a general helper in my son school, I miss being left alone in my job, working with children and often go peak in my son classroom....and draw during my leisure time... Honestly, I don't like being chase with deadline, interact with too many calls and people, nor battle the field for job security, I want friendly work-mate, share work load, no competition environment ! I don't mind to be the little soldier at work, get work done, and home free..
Now I am a mother to my little prince, a career goal just not in me anymore...I know what I capable and love......it's my own family and my family members is what more important........
BTW, thanks to you who leaving nice greeting in my previous blog, I have to gather myself first, and then I will resume.
原來年級大了,又身為母親的我,對辦公室政治或者工作地位提不起勁來,煩又忙的新工作環境令我想退後。。。。。我懷念做肥師奶的日子,所以我跟老伴說:"快点去完成你的学业再回到工作戰場去,我就可以相夫教子、照厄爸和姐的起歸飲食、做回肥師奶。"(老伴在月前離開了巳工作十六年職位,因為公司前景茫茫,多次解雇,加上前陣子身體又不適,所以早点拿package再回校進修轉行。為了支特他,而我己享受了這麽多年part-time和無職 日子,該到我出來工作,真正的工作去!可惜心身似乎做不來!現在正在努力如何適應和去融入。。。唉!然道是人在江湖身不由自? 我聽說 " Life is about Choice" ? 你說呢?

Canned - IF topic

This week Illustration Friday topic - CannedMy good old days back in Malaysia, we don't have lots of toys to play with, so we invent games.
One of the game with empty cans is Tip Tap Toe (there are more games with cans, let's see if I have time to draw it all out).
We uses 2 empty cans, poke a hole on the bottom of both cans, string it together with a knot at the tips of string, then check to ensure it's secure, next, step on the cans and start walking. After a good warm up, the games will begin - we will race each others! My sister's E always win the race, some kids will use bigger cans to challenge her, but the tips is use smaller cans will walk faster!
小時侯一種不用花錢的罐頭玩具,你有玩過嗎?Take this opportunity to thank you fellow blogger's Joan, and JCEBE who so kind given me the awards!
Thank you! I really appreciate this so much, so honor to be nominated by all these talented artist! Thank you! Click here for more Details.
