After my hectic semester 1, I went up to the mountain where my good friend, Jaqueline stays, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It’s her last semester here and she wanted to record some memories on film. So we went around the university and snap photos!

to my secret friend,

thank you for giving me what i have now for the past 21 years! no matter ups or downs, i believe that it is a challenge and lesson for me to face and learn. truly appreciate it.

today, i’m one year older.
after living in hong kong for 1.5 years, my stay here has been eyes opening
and fruitful.

Today i’m 22.
I learned that i’m not that good after all.
i learned that i have to be humble, open up my eyes and ears more.
i have become more quiet now.
i learned that when someone;s “holding the mic”, don’t try to out loud him or her
i learned that when my friend gossip about others, i do not input my opinion, because i do not like gossiping (but sometimes when someone frustrate me too much i need to gossip about him/her to release my anger, sorry), although it does pull apart from the group, but i also learned another thing, is to be alone.
i learned that it is not necessary to be hero all the time or try to be hero,
supporting characters are important too!
i learned that not to be the best but do my best
i learned that my parents are getting old and having some health problems,
im not a kid anymore
i learned that family are the best because they are always there no matter what
i learned to relax and make design that i feel like it
i learned to appreciate nature more
i learned to appreciate how dot, line and shape form a visual design in daily life
i learned to appreciate the beautiful view in HK when sun shines through
the polluted air
i learned to love myself more when i need
i learned to treat birthday as a normal day and appreciate everyday i live
i will try to be there for friends that neglected me
i will appreciate time with my classmates more because they are my family in HK!
i’m 22, I need to start thinking about my future path in life and design
on my 22nd, i wish that the world will be a better place, without profit, selfishness, business, consumption and etc. I still want a 23rd birthday :)

peace!
3rd jan 2012

Happy Birthday to me!
