Weddings

I've written another story about a few funny experiences that I've had in attending weddings.
One in the UK - I wasn't very good at helping the bride making wedding cupcakes. The groom jammed his left hand when closing car boot just missing the ring finger, and most bride's family and friends nearly didn't make it to the wedding because we all got lost in a forest park on the wedding day morning.

Ben Nevis

I've had another article published in United Daily News, which is about my camping/hiking trip in Ben Nevis, Scotland.
We travelled from Staines, England. It had taken us quite a journey to get to Fort William, Scotland.
We didn't take the car. We went by public transport and I think in that 5 days I had walked more then 100 miles...
I think travelling with the right person is very important.

The latest evolution of Nian, the Chinese New Year monster

I was invited by United Daily News in Taiwan to write and illustrate Nian, the famous Chinese New Year monster.

It used to eat people and destroy buildings and crops during the end of winter/beginning of spring until humans came up with methods to scare it away for good by making very loud noises e.g. displaying firecrackers and chopping pork into mince (to make dumplings), which are part of the Chinese New Year traditions.

I've visualised my version of modern monster of Nian, which is a couch potato and addicted to mobile and internet.

Mr R

I've written a newspaper article to describe one of the German guys I know, who has the most outrageous behaviours when he's drunk.
The article was written in Chinese and published on 6 Oct, 2016.

The text is as below:

說到這個R先生

一般大眾對德國人的印象應該是準時、嚴謹、有條理,喜歡看足球、喝啤酒、吃德國香腸。在我認識的幾個德國人當中,有個特別不同的。嗯,應該是這麼說,因為酒精影響的關係,讓他「與眾不同」,也就是說其實跟他是否為德國人,一點關係都沒有。

R先生剔著光頭,身高快200公分,因為對世間幾乎所有我們想得到的死人骨頭都食物過敏,所以身型非常的消瘦。他德、中、英、台語都流利,且喜歡喝酒吃檳榔。

第一次認識R先生時,是在兩年前平安夜晚上的聯合國聚餐。只見他一手拿著酒瓶,另一手忙著比劃,好讓他的高談闊論更加的生動,唯一不搭嘎的是,不管我們討論的主題是什麼,他一定要帶髒字,而且是一連串不同猥褻用語的排列組合,讓我堅信他的數學一定很強。
