Tuck Everlasting – the Talks About Being Immortal

I was about six or seven when the fear of death found me.  I remember shivering into the mid-night with my eyes widely open and squeezing my mom’s hand hard.  Weirdly enough, the person whose images kept showing in front of my eyes was a famous anchor I saw every day at the time from … Continue reading Tuck Everlasting – the Talks About Being Immortal

The CATCHER in the RYE

What should I say? It is simply the best book I've read. I went through the similar confusing stage myself in college. The differences were first, I didn't talk and lie, I did what Holden imaged what he would do near the end of the book - acting like a deaf person so everyone stopped … Continue reading The CATCHER in the RYE

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

The world is not full of angles or devils, but ordinary souls that are pushed by a minority of angles and devils and thus struggling in between. I didn’t have high expectation when I started this book.  More than a couple of decades ago, when people in China and people from other countries did not … Continue reading Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

IT Movie Fan art competition

I just entered it... Though I think my cellphone tilted a little when talking the photo... The model was my left hand wearing a latex glove. #ITFanArtContest


I just read the book “Rings” by Kōji Suzuki. I was very looking forward to reading the book when I found it.  The movies that based on it (Ringu and Ringu II) have been my single worst nightmare since I watched them.  The book tells a quite different story.  The first 40 pages looked like … Continue reading Ringu

A Queer Dream

I used to have a weird experience.  It was a queer dream starting with me feeling being sucked into a deep and deeper space that looked the same as my bed room and I knew it was not.  I fell no matter how I resisted and then I heard voice, blowing into my ear, as … Continue reading A Queer Dream

An elephant and ants – A SHORT STORY PART II

Before the ants-eating-elephant tragedy happened, a lion who was a best friend of the elephants had borrowed some ants-helpers.  He told the ants he didn’t like their work.  Then when those ants thought the lion was sleeping but the lion actually wasn’t, they got together and bitten lion’s baby.  The lion saw it, sent the … Continue reading An elephant and ants – A SHORT STORY PART II

An elephant and ants – A SHORT STORY PART I

An elephant needed some helpers but didn’t want to take the chance that his status would be threatened.  So, he got a bunch of ants, thinking whenever he didn’t feel right he'd just stomp on them and kill them.  Then the ants got more ants, and more and more… Eventually, the ants ate the elephant. Names, … Continue reading An elephant and ants – A SHORT STORY PART I

Post-holiday Anxiety

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving; didn’t spend any money on anything that hasn’t been delivered yet but you already regretted buying...  I still remember my last Thanksgiving, spending almost every night the whole night during that week on a pathetic project.  I thought I made that project a huge success.  But I omitted the … Continue reading Post-holiday Anxiety
