Painting in Hong Kong

I went to Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens today and painted at the Medicinal Garden. The subject is Aristolochia tagala. It is in full bloom and it also has lots of fruits that have so many seeds. I collected a lot and sketched the plant. Too bad I don't have enough time to paint the colour, but will work on it in Vietnam.

Fun time in Hong Kong

It was rainning the whole day yesterday. So I cannot go hiking, so I went shopping in Causeway Bay. Time Square, and Sogo. I bought a small bottle of L'Artisan Perfumeur Fleur de Liane and some books. Also it was Sunday and the Indonesian workers in HK gathered at their spot in Causeway Bay and it was so crowded, but I managed to get a lot of Indonesian chips and so today I will go HK Botanic Garden to paint and enjoy the better weather.

Dreamt of seed collecting

I dreamt that last night I was collecting seeds with my brother. It was near a Mansion on the roadside. The cliff on the roadside was very steep, but I reached up to peel the papery seeds off the cliff along the stem of the vine. The seeds are huge and resemble Illigera's seeds. The colour is bright orange. We collected a lot of them. I was very excited.

lovely silk in Vietnam

I am going to have clothes made from these kind of fabrics, so pretty and traditional.
