Honey Breakfast

July 26, 2010

I do not usually eat western breakfast. I like light salty food for morning, eg. soybeans milk and wanton, noodle or porridge… But Wei enjoys eating bread with milk. We talk about breakfast a lot. Gradually, I may change a little bit for the babe. I have to admit gram with honey, milk with walnut seeds powder are much more nutritious.

So, this was today’s breakfast.

Recently, there always white clouds float on the dark sky, moving quietly. It is a quite romantic and poetic moment.

It’s been one month I began writing crying tomato now.  I think I have made good friends with my rotten tomatoes. They smile sometimes, yes, I know it!

And for the whole month, I draw pictures and play with different watercolors everyday.  I am trying to do some funny projects with my drawings. for example, imagination on rubber erasers…and absorbent paper…and paper printing tech…and paper cuts art…

I love paper.

结婚戒指

July 21, 2010

虽是软陶一枚,每天出门都戴在手指上,无名指或是食指,这待遇~ ~怕是钻石戒指也赶不上啊。幸福而平静的婚后生活是什么呢?无非就是:看着喜庆十足的这枚戒指,想着你对我说:“你就是应该和我在一起的。”

I love dots and sakura.

花椿/Hanatsubaki

July 20, 2010

今天去参观了资生堂在上海美术馆举办的首次企业文化展,首先是带着想要一览《花椿》这本资生堂内部杂志的渴望。进入展览大厅,呈现在眼前的即是从2009年往后延伸至1950年,《花椿》60年杂志封面展览墙。

就从其封面来看,《花椿》把西方的简洁明快与东方的雍容典雅的融合作为设计的指导思想,使它洋溢着古典神韵和现代潮流,创造出一种东西合璧的风格。和一般时尚杂志一样,它也用时尚女郎作为封面人物,但是又有其自身的特点。封面上有日语刊名、罗马音刊名、期号以及本期的主要内容。而从这些女性的妆容,衣着,仪态上展示的是女性发自内心的自信和优雅。

这两年对独立刊物的关注和研究也是让我对这本杂志产生好奇心的一个起始点,我喜爱并崇拜的日本女主编及艺术家林央子在退休之前是《花椿》的编辑,退休之后她才开始出版了Here and There (Published and distributed by Nieves)。在采访中,林央子说道,Here and There的zine风格很大程度上受到《花椿》的编辑方式影响。在没有广告和销售压力的情况下,《花椿》编辑们从女性自身获取灵感,结合西方的前卫和日本的典雅,设计传统而明朗,没有一般时尚杂志的鲜明特征却魅力十足并充满着生活气息。在此熏陶下的她,做出来的“一个人的杂志”同样散发着这种味道,在偶然的换季情况下,我会选择用资生堂的护肤品,实在算不上是追随者,去看这个展览,大概完全是因为她的魅力吧。

展厅里其他藏品和印刷品也让我有所启发,这种启发以后也会应用到自己的独立出版工作室中,去试验,去探索,去体验真正的梦想实现的过程。另外印象深刻的是来自日本老牌艺术家三名文夫的图稿,简单的一笔线条就能出神般地勾勒出女性的身形美与妖娆态,散落周围的四瓣樱花图案与圆圈装点了柔美和温顺,让人不禁心跟着美好了起来。

做个美丽而自信的女人。展览23号结束,没有去的同学抓紧了哦~

第五个月

The fifth month of me and the babe. Weight: 47kg.

大朵朵/小朵朵

July 9, 2010

Start into no mood of eating. Irregularly and lack of nutrition. I feel guilty.

I am scared of my shape-changing. Rare clothes (particularly my shorts and trousers) could fit in me now.  But my fingers stay the same. I have no idea why each time I can get fatty in almost every aspect but fingers. Did I type a lot with my hands?

Two story books have finished. Wei has to buy new ones now. Recently babe and I both read a lot I think. For babe, reading make him be familiar with Daddy’s voice. (According to some medical guidance book, when the babe is in mum’s belly, the voice of Dad can  be very benefit to the grow-up of child. He/she maybe smarter, happier and more friendly. )

For me, it gives me a power to do things that I have dreamed a long time-my indie publication project and our web-bookstore studio.

The hint is if you just think a thing you want to do without an action, the thing will withdraw like a seasonal flower and you can only sign lonely. I do not want to sign silently.

爸爸的童话之声

July 5, 2010

If I would like to begin writing anything, a story letter for the unborn baby could be a start.

Stayed in the Shanghai Library for the whole day. Reading can really inspire you, encourage you and fullfill your heart. I will concern the name of flowers, trees and any plants I meet, just afraid of being asked by the baby in near future days. I must be prepared and should be pleasure to tell you everything you raise a question.

Wei tells a fairy goodnight story every night to me and the baby. He usually puts the book in his working bag. During the break, he picks a proper story from the book and practises the tones and tunes for the night. Naive he is but so lovely.

The babe and I enjoy this moment so much! The prove is both of us can fall asleep before the end of the story, along with the sound of FATHER.

The weather is so dull and hot!

If I could swim like them…(click the image) I miss everything in the season of deep autumn.
