Ost tifft West, East meets West

These set of images are drawn by Yang Liu. They represent the stereotypical difference between the East and the West. From my experiences in living in China and in England, generally speaking it is pretty accurate especially the queing system... hahaha


Sense of self

Relationships - Yep can see the whole Guanxi 关系 concept.

Queing- People cannot queue at all in China! Prob one the main things i missed about England.

Buttons for eyes - Coraline

My sister made me this Coraline doll, she knows me too well. :) I love Coraline. The creepy story line, the stop motion animation, the music. Perfect.

If you had buttons for eyes, which style would you choose? I'm quite partial towards the 'Blue Buttons' for girls that think.

And a gory coraline cosplay to end..

Bookcase- long form library

"Rather like the hull of a boat, the underside is curved, allowing steady gentle rocking, controlled by the occupant, as you would on a tree swing or an old rocking chair. It can hold up to 400 books of varying shapes and sizes, and/or several hundred CD's, DVD's, or indeed nothing at all, it is entirely up to you."

This giant bookcase is sold by
etsy user ifsodoso and its a-mazing!! Just imagine being curled up on that seat, engrossed in a new book. I admit, i was a bit of a book geek when i was younger, use to LOVE reading. I use to keep a record of all the books i read (haha i know im sad =.=) and when i finished high school i totaled about 600 books? But now i cant even managed one book a month. Sad times indeed. Me and the boy, whos in china, are trying to do this thing where we read a book more or less at the same time. Gave me motivation to read again and its nice knowing that someone on the other side of the world is enjoying the same book as you :)

Polaroid sun 600 and Mamiya/Sekor 500 DTL

My dad was cleaning out the garage and found some old school cameras, Polaroid sun 600 and Mamiya/Sekor! They look sooo cool. I have always been a fan of analogue photography just never had the medians (except my diana mini) or the inspiration to experiment with it. Cant wait to try out these bad boys! haha.

The Polaroid camera is just like how i remember it was. We use to get it out during special occasions and snap and shake away. Good times. Then it disappeared, probably got lost in the big move, i missed it. But the main problem is film! Good one polaroid for not producing them anymore ¬__¬ Thankfully, The Impossible Project are producing coloured and black/white film saving the good old polaroid camera. Costs are pretty steep tho, at about £20 for 8 photographs... wow. But, my Birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, hint hint hint!

The Mamiya/Sekor? Man, I have never seen this camera before! My dad said he bought it when he just moved to the UK so bought in the 70's/80's? wow. Love the feel of this camera, and all its buttons and dials, but really heavy. Dont know if it still works, need to buy some film!

And since i cant get real polaroids might as well do the next best thing; make your photos look like polaroids! I downloaded this Polardroid programme. Wow its so much fun! Just got to drag your photos and a polaroid comes out, also has 'authentic' sounds and you have wait for the photo to 'develop'. hahah. Above at some photos that i produced... :D Have a play with it! Or u could p/s them but im well lazy :P
