Chúc mừng năm mới! from your Vietnamese blogger!
It is the Chinese year of the “yang” starting Feb 19 2015 to Feb 7 2016. You’ve probably heard it as the year of the Sheep, Ram or Goat, but that’s because in Mandarin, the word for all three and some other hoofed animals is “yang”. Additional descriptors to “yang” identify them more specifically.
There is an additional descriptor to the Chinese year and that’s an element. This year is the year of the Wooden yang. Things associated with wood are lucky for this year.
So what does this Chinese year hold for fashion?
I’ve posted a lot of clothes I’ve designed and made on this site. However, the clothes have been mostly shown on a dress form, lying around or in terrible selfies I take. Recently, I was very fortunate to have had the chance to be in a few photos with Geena Grim of Grim Photography. This one is of me in the New Orleans Saints fleece coat I designed and made two years ago (more details in the link).
Thanks, Geena! And assistant Ken! I hope to have a few more in the future. In the meanwhile, please visit her Grim Photography page to see more of her beautiful work!
Happy New Year, everyone!
Facebook recently did their annual year in review summary for people to post and/or customize if they wished to, which gave me an idea for a thought and/or writing exercise.
If you were to do a review of your 2015 a year from now, what would it look like?
What do you have coming up that you are planning? What are you hoping for in 2015, whether you do it or it happening to you? Long shot or slam dunk?
Take a little time to think about it all and I hope you’ll like what you come up with!
Best wishes for a joyous and prosperous 2015, everybody! Thanks for coming by my blog!
Marvel recently changed the gender of their Thor character to female, creating what I call Thorette. Thor will still be there wield his battle axe instead of hammer so female Thor needs a different name as far as I’m concerned.
Then they changed the race of their Captain America character with a new black person taking up the shield, creating what I call Captain Afro-America. If you’re gonna be courting a new racial audience, you should be politically correct about it as far as I’m concerned.
There’s rumours Iron Man might be next. To that end, may I propose Bi-ron Man, who shoots both ways and will appeal to yet another audience discriminated against, the LGBTQUIC2SAPHO community.
I am embarrassing myself for the sake of a visual and innovative tennis shorts design in these Toronto Maple Leafs shorts, so I hope you appreciate it! :-)
