Sakura battle 櫻花大戰

Sakura in Tokyo will start blooming this weekend! Oh, the pretty sakura... just like what you see in anime and drama. But if you're heading down to the popular Shinjuku park, be prepared for the Sakura Battle! Hunt and guard your territory well. Prepared to have your bag or shoes tramped on or accidentally tramping on others. Remember to also stare at other people to fight for the best scenic shot. Will you still risk your 200yen and still go for the kill?

氣象局說這週末東京的櫻花就會開始盛開了!日劇和動漫常常呈獻出一種又美麗又浪漫的氣氛。但在東京的新宿公園裡,爛漫的櫻花下隱藏著濃濃殺氣... 變成你爭我奪的“地盤爭霸戰”。包包或鞋子不是被踩到,就是不小心踩到別人的。你瞪我,我瞪你,爭奪在最漂亮櫻花樹下拍照。這樣的賞花,你還會去嗎?

An end and new beginning 一個結束和新的開始

I was looking at my comic strips printed out before my computer broke down. I found out that after all these years, my favorite is still the old comics that I drew in my Taiwanese blog, literally translated as "rich lady series". Maybe I'm really vain and materialistic? Or maybe I really enjoyed drawing comics without the black boxes with complete freedom to escape the boundaries? Or maybe I just write better in Chinese? Or was it due to stress from slow growth of FB fans?

Although my computer broke down, I talked with a few new friends. One of them actually gave me a wise advise... don't worry about these, the most important thing is to enjoy the creation process. Many people told me the same thing before but those words just didn't penetrate through my skull. But somehow this time, it did. So I reflected on why I enjoyed drawing the old series.

1) Writing the dialogues in Chinese somehow makes my expressions more exaggerated?
2) I prefer drawing without those boxes.
3) I prefer to be depicted as a rich lady (with my old branded bag)

There has been feedback that my theme wasn't clear so I'd decided to just draw about my life in Japan! If it is well-received, I will also self-publish a comic book on Amazon too! Cool right? Hahaha <- in serious hallucination.

Finally I can feel that Spring is coming today and Sakura in Tokyo is expected to bloom this weekend. A new season, a new feeling and a new start. Thank you for sticking around and may you continue to accompany me and Kopi (dog's new name) in this new journey :)



1) 我似乎用中文寫會比較有戲劇性,用英文會比較冷靜。
2) 我也好像比較喜歡沒有格子的創作,感覺自由。
3) 我還是喜歡當貴婦XD

做得好,說不定真能出書喔!哇哈哈哈~~~ ←進入妄想狀態中...

[109] A Picture is worth a thousand words 一幅畫勝過千言萬語

I found out that I'd uploaded this comic strip to my web album before my hard disk crashed. God is probably telling me to change my script and start all over again. No, I'm not Christian, but I'm pretty sure he's right this time.
