Reading the news and seeing all these articles about the Hong Kong Book Fair have been so upsetting. Maybe I’m delusional but I’ve always thought that the book fair should be somewhat of a cultural event – books: fiction, non-fiction, how-to’s, cook books, I just didn’t expect it to become a soft porn festival.
It’s sad enough that mainstream entertainment is in so many ways defined by how little girls can strip down to, but now the book fair?!
Let me be clear – it’s not my business if girls want to be porn stars, I just think it’s eye-roll-worthy in its extreme when they call themselves models. What are you modeling, exactly? Oh, oh, THAT bikini you’re barely keeping on. Sorry, I went blind for a second. What’s all that toothpaste dripping out of your mouth? Oh, just a part of modeling, is it? Okay, it just looks a lot like porn and I’m confused, that’s all. If you’re doing what a porn star does, just admit it and it won’t be so upsetting for people who care for where this city (or others, as I’m sure this is not just a HK thing) is headed. What kind of role model are we being for the generations to come? What are we supposed to tell our children? Models are basically porn stars, but not all, there are professional ones.. no wait, these are professional too, just, in a very different way. How can you tell the difference? You might have to judge their appearance…………………What?
Hi guys! I’ve gone quiet for a while because I’ve been so busy making jewelries and… *drum roll* posting them online for sale!
This is so so truly exciting for me! Tell you what, I got so excited one day that I got mild chest pains… Hahahahahaaa. I made a Facebook Page and Instagram account for “Bits and Pieces”, but haven’t really posted anything on it, since I wanted to set up my Etsy store first. A few days ago I posted two items on my Etsy store (URLs to come at the end of the post :p) but had to run out for dinner with mom, so I just left it at that, expecting to have to stress out about no one even wanting my stuff after a whole month.
I was vegging out in front of Sims 3 that night when I suddenly got an email and Etsy app notification, telling me I’ve just made my first sale! It completely caught me off guard. Honestly, it was one of the most exciting moments I’ve had. Getting sale notifications for things you’ve made is such a good feeling!
I’m planning to go shop for more materials so I can make more unique jewelries for “Bits and Pieces”, hope you guys will like it! All the hand-drawn jewelries I make are one of a kind since… I hand-draw them! Looking forward to making more unique jewelries as I explore into print techniques though
