Silence is a source of great strength.
~ Lao Tze ~
Yesterday overhead a fairly heated conversation. Both parties stood by her own view and refused to understand the other person’s view point. And so the conversation became fairly heated up.
As I was walking away, I was musing why they would not appreciate the other person’s perspective and then, I realised I am guilty of this too, sometimes. 😛
Perhaps, the conversation would be different if we try to look at the matter from another angle?
Being famous as a fashion designer, Ziki often receives invitations to functions and events. Even though, he keeps his attendance to the minimal and he has no problems interacting and charming the people he comes into contact with, he would much prefer to stay at home doing what he likes or spend time with people he likes.
Started learning tatting laces using shuttles. Thanks to generous people who bothered to put up tutorial videos on the internet. (^_^)
See the necklace Ziki is wearing? My first successful attempt. Frustrating at times especially when I made mistakes at the later portion of the work and don’t know how to undo. But, there’s a sense of achievement when I see the completed work. Already now itching to try another pattern…
Another new thing. Just started an Instagram account: mydreamparticle. For new experience. For fun. Do drop by some times. Do let me know yours too, if you have one. (^_^)
Recently a lot of things happened in the workplace so much so that I wanted to give up. But someone whom I respected advised me to use this opportunity to learn to be patient, to be strong, to ride out the storm. (-__-;)
This is Ziki. He is a famous fashion designer. He is well-loved and envied by many: for his achievement, his beautiful looks and his charms. He too has learned to ride out many storms before he reaches his current position. Even now, he does not allow himself to become complacent.
Ziki, my new boy, is different from the rest of the dollies in the family. His skin tone is rosy white (the 1st fair skin in the family) and he is using the new body from SWITCH, Attractive Body. In these photos, you can see more differences between the Attractive body and Humming Dolly HD 65 used by the rest of my 65cm boys. The models are Mikoto and of course, Ziki.
Ziki’s foot seems slightly broader. The current shoes are a bit too tight for Ziki….
Mikoto is very unwilling to pull up his shirt…
It’s easier to bend Ziki’s hand and get it to stay in position.
I quite like the new body…to the extent of contemplating changing one or two of the HD65 bodies…and naturally this is frowned upon by the man-in-the-house. Maybe later…(–_–)

Finally. Managed to attend Hong Kong Dollism Plus 9 this year.
We arrived at the venue about 11am and there was already a queue forming. By 11:30am, the queue had double back. Once the door opened, I hurried to SWITCH booth. Another queue. (-_-“) This time I waited for quite a long while before I could see their display.
The SOLO – Soseo (one of my favourite sculpts) as Jade Emperor and Seolrok as Pixiu. Stunning display.
By the time it was my turn to order at SWITCH booth, I was feeling hungry and tired. Then to my horror, I found out that I had to queue in another line to pay for my order! (T_T) My morning was gone just queuing up.
With my stuff safely in my bag, I started touring around the venue and also looking for the items in my want list. The place was packed with people. Most folks were ok except for some who pushed their way around. After an hour or so, I was getting super tired and irritated by the rudeness of some folks. Fortunately, I managed to find what I wanted by 3+pm and snapped quite a fair bit of photos too.
All in all, it was an interesting first dollism for me. ( *ˆoˆ*)
