BALI 2




















Collaging. In hotel room.

Don't know the name of this plant but it's everywhere around the south of Bali island. We were so curious on this thing. As told by a hotel staff, when the fruit is still green, it tastes like cucumber, which is soft and spongy. When it turns brown, the spongy interior will dry up and "fiberize" into "cotton" like filaments, which is commonly used for making pillow and mattress. He picked 4 pieces from a tree and sent us as a gift. So kind he was.

How interesting! I have never seen this before, first thought it is cotton. Bali is such an amazing place, wish one day we could visit it as well.

It's amazing to see nature give us everything we need to eat, and wonder ... and play !

C'est extraordinaire de voir la nature nous donner de quoi manger, s'émerveiller et...s'amuser !

This is amazing! Sometimes, I just feel that our children have actually made us to live a second childhood again. They open the door to a new or "old" world which we almost forget its existence sometimes.

Dear Alliot, 早晨出门前读到你的留言了。我很感谢你的话语和鼓励,也很高兴你喜欢我寄给臻的衣服。每次看到可爱漂亮的臻穿着我做的衣服在你的镜头里走动,就觉着特别开心,幸福,那种很有成就的感觉。这种感觉是在自己的孩子身上找不到的。臻和你对我来说非常special, 你们是我生命中的天使。

今天去看布料了,突然间又有很有自信心了,呵呵。 是因为你的留言,谢谢你,Alliot, 我亲爱的朋友。
