A Fun Drawing Group

I recently joined a group in Flickr and the name of the group
is called "Drawings from Other Members Photographs" and
I found this group is quite meaningful and challenge.

The reason is that there are some members share their photos
and let those other members who are interested to create their
own drawings based on the photos. In such way it is a big
challenge as we are not going to draw something that we feel
familiar around our living. So to me it is a big challenge, but at
the same time there is full of fun that I can share my drawing
and compare with others drawing from same source and try
to see how good other drawing styles are ^^

Above is my first challenge just posted~

Lunch in Classic Food Shop (done)

Apart from the classic plastic chair and also the traditional
food, the most interesting part that attract me are the table
and the long seat. The table is covered by a large piece of
glass, with few different menu in between. While the chair
is made by wood, without any soft cover on it, and the food
can stocks will be kept underneath.

Lunch in Classic Food Shop (Con't)

Sometimes it is a fun idea to find out some small classic
food shop and try to experience the old times in a place.

I went to a small shop and order a standard lunch set which
is a combination of omelet, macaroni and a drink (I choose
milk tea in that day). It is somehow like a breakfast rather
than a lunch, I have to say, but it is fun to do something
unusual ... it is just an idea from an insight.

The decorations are full of special check points as well. I
posted the old plastic chairs few days ago, and I will try to
post the rest of them after the weekend~

Father's Day Gift

This gift actually I bought to my girlfriend's father instead
of my father, as my father was passed away from sick when I
was very young, unluckily.

I invite her father to have lunch in a Chinese restaurant, and
I found out that he likes to drink tea. The same night when I
walk in a shopping mall, we found a shop selling traditional
Chinese food was selling grant tea leave package as well. The
special point is that the package was design and painted by
a famous old Hong Kong artist. I suddenly find out that could
be a little surprise to her dad, so finally I decided to buy that~

Lunch in Classic Food Shop

This kind of chair is very popular in old Hong Kong times.
I always found them out everyone when I was a kid.

To me, indeed this is not a very comfortable chair, I prefer
those with a back-pad, may be because of my shoulder
sore sometimes. .. but it recalls our old memories which
is very meaningful.

Nice Flower

There is a nice flower decoration I found in
a new shopping mall. I have to say that is
so elegant, and I immediately take a shot
about it.

The designer has put some effort, so that
the small marbles in the pot is mixed by
yellow and white ones, to match the flowers.

Such decoration in the shopping mall gives
color and make shoppers feel happy~

Fine European Cuisine (con't)

Continue from the last post, three more drawings are done.

I try to use different styles in the Painter software, and suddenly
I found out that the style in the steak drawing is the one that I
really like the most. I will try to work more on this style.

I guess I can complete the last 2 drawing for this complete
dinner set today ~

Promotion Gimmick

Last week when I get off the bus towards my working office
there are some free daily newspaper delivered. Usually I
have no interest about them but I found that the newspaper
is wrapped by a nice red ribbon.

That's why finally I picked one. When I read the little round tag
on the ribbon then I find out it is a promotion of a newly opened
grant hotel. This little trick works!

Italian Red Wine

I start to taste red wine since 3 months ago
because there is a winery nearby and there is
a nice old saleslady always listen and answer
my questions with patient.

Usually I try those red wine of France from the place
Bordeaux and Burgundy, as I like the smell and taste
of the grape blends. When I try the Italian red wine this
time, though it is Melot I like it a lot as well~

add some more friends (again). As you can see, a dolphin,
sea-gull, starfish, shells and rainbow are added.

Wow ... the screen is more rich and colorful now~

Healthy Green Tea

Recently I love to drink green tea. It's taste is quite different
from normal Chinese tea. But nowadays getting more and
more people in Hong Kong like to drink green tea as well,
either it is in hot or cold drinks.

Everyday in the office I will make green tea by myself, with the
tea leaves from a famous Japan green tea production house
called ITOEN. It is said that a person will be more healthy if you
drink green tea long enough (though I keep drinking for 2 months
only :p)

There is a new sushi shop opened recently so I decided to
try. Different sushi types can be found there apart from those
most typical sushi types, they are so interesting to me.

Actually I did tried those cube type once in my Oskai vacation
last year. I was heard that such type is quite popular in Japan
old days.

Good Shopping Mall Concept

I went to a shopping mall yesterday and that shopping mall
design style is quite Japanese. It has a new project called
"12 Stars Project" which puts twelve giant horoscope sculptures
in different floors in the shopping mall, into a Spiral Star Gallery.

The design of those sculptures is done by a famous aluminum
sculptor cum illustrator Hideki Kawabata from Japan.
