9.18

This is papa ziggy and ... me!


2009 Beijing

Hiding myself away is not an intention, it just happens.
I gain so much weight after iza was born ... since then, I have been escaping from being pictured ...
To portrait myself ... only this time ... just once ... for feian (just kidding)...
I take this as a celebration of my birthday, a reflection to the little history of my own.


1996 Paris ..........................................................................The year we've got married.


1999 Beijing
+++

2000 Rotterdam / utrecht
+++

2000 Amsterdam
+++

2003 Hong Kong
+++
2003 was an enlightenment to us, especially to me. Iza leads me to rediscover with her the joy, excitement and mystery of the world.

MY DAY
Don't know since when, birthday is not a big day to me ...
More often, 9.18 reminds me the Mukden Incident - an early event in the Second Sino-Japanese War 九•一八事變, instead of my day.
But this year's birthday is special to me ... I come into the presence of a graceful woman who was born on the same day as me.
Happy birthday Evelyne!

Dear Beautiful Alliot,
Thank you for sharing these photos of you. You look exactly like I imagined and I can see where Iza gets her beautiful face.

The photos are lovely.

They are ALL beautiful portraits...thanks for this little glimpse inside your life. I love the giant candlesticks in that first image. And that last photo of you and Iza is pure poetry - just stopped my heart!

Alliot,
Thanks for sharing these pictures. I am so happy I can put a face on your name now.
The first photo is stunning as the last one with baby Iza.
Beautiful.

Dear Alliot,

You are just beautiful beyond my imagination, now and then. 还是用中文写吧。以免让别人看了觉着肉麻。:)

觉着特别感动和触动,也不知为什么。一年以前我还隔着千山万水,远远得仰慕着你。然后你居然走进我的小小世界,你的留言带来的你气息,温暖,善良。然后我就想象你该是一个怎样的女人,觉着你应该是诗意,唯美和淳厚。这应该是个奇迹吧,你出现了,you are just as beautiful, the same as my imagination and even beyond it.
你是一个真实的让我感动的存在。特别高兴,真的。很早以前看了许多亦舒的书,今天,那个传说中的女主角竟然出现在我的面前。还想起2000年第一次来欧洲旅行,也许我们在巴黎的哪间美术馆擦肩而过,或者你曾经是坐在前排看音乐剧的那个美丽女生......总之,语无伦次,总之,觉得你很美丽,和我想象的一样美丽。

Iza眼睛像爸爸,其它的都是你:)
最后一张觉得你浑身散发着光辉,Baby Iza 则是天使在人间。

有点儿激动,呵呵, 见谅。
差点忘了,祝你生日快乐。安雅9月19号生日,今天6岁。老爸明天9月20日生日。有意思吧:)
