More Regie's Art

Hi Hi ..... Have you waken up from your wonderful dream with HRH yet? Still savoring every single word in his letter and drowning in his gentleness? or are you busily composing a wishlist of Korean attractions for our prince? Yesterday was indeed an eventful day, eh?

Since my 'innocent' suggestion for HRH's own home is sooooo being mistaken by my 'chinggu' as an evil scheme to gain access into HRH's palace, then I have to come up with an alternate plan to demonstrate my innocence. Hmmmm ........ I got it! Remember Yong Joon said we can even suggest 'a small table in a shabby country restaurant'? Easy enough, how about buying a small shabby restaurant in a remote countryside, take a picture and send it to HRH, then I'll just sit there day and night waiting for him to knock on my door. Hahaha, isn't that a brilliant idea? Ouch! Don't smack me, I'm just daydreaming. First, can't afford it; second, can't cook; and most important, HRH is smart enough to tell :)

I'd like to post 2 of Regie's drawings :

I remember the princess mentioned that she thought this picture has a Bohemian feel. I like how Regie has used 'spring' colour to give it a refreshing feel.

This is what Regie wrote how she felt during this drawing (hope she doesn't mind me posting it) :

"I tried new things, by drawing it using color pencils. I got inspired by your article (july2nd, fairyII), when I see the colors of HRH shirt and the picture you put next to it, the fairy in yellow rose.It's so fresh. So I decide to try it."

I think this is the picture that she was referring to. Thanks Regie, I am so touched.

Next drawing :

I post the actual picture not for comparison purpose, but to highlight the details in her drawing. Notice the thin strands and highlight on Yong Joon's hair, hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much Regie for sending me your beautiful creation :)

oh, i really love that 'bohemian' one that regie did! the original pic has a rather darkly mysterious air about it, but regie's version is so spring-y! even joyful :)

guess colours really do make alot of difference, ya?

now i'm thinking... i wear black so often, and simply don't wear enough colours... so people would think i'm dark and boring and serious... whilst they would think others in their brighter coloured clothes are happier people? hmmm....

Chinggu, your innocence is accepted(just to clarify things- ONLY FOR NOW, hehhehehe!). No problemo with me about the suggestion. I can cover for you in the cooking department but we have to get a very fat-pursed sugar daddy & ask him to buy us that shabby resto! Hehehhehe!

Keep dreaming and fill me in again on the "developments." Hahahahaha!

Love yah!

Dearest Jaime and Bae sisters:
Welcome home. I visit your website and BB's almost everyday, and I rather missed your fairies.
Of course, I marvel at the competence and commitment of BB to Bae Yong Joon's happenings. You can really know the latest news from her blogs.
I might not read you and BB often now, because I am also travelling and relocating from the east to the west of Beijing.
I hope that there are some Bae sisters in Philadelphia that I could relate with on Bae Yong Joon's One Asia dream.

hihi princess,

Yes, Regie's interpretation does give us a refreshing feel of this picture, eh?

hehe, I totally understand what you mean. Black projects being 'cool & confident', it's always an 'in' colour. I remember I only had black/white/grey/beige in my wardrobe and home decor for the longest time. It started after I have my son, children have such acute sense of colour and they react accordingly. I began to appreciate the beauty of colours, afterall, the world is made up of colours. How can we capture a beautiful sunset, rainbow or blooming flowers just by B&W photography? So yes yes princess, you look great in black but I am sure you'll look pretty in colours too :)

Aiyo, does that mean a rush to the shopping mall now?
love ..... jaime

hehe chinggu,

Phew! I'm soooo relieved that you trust me again :) hehe fat-pursed sugar daddy? But But I am a one-man woman only have my heart set on HRH! (oops sorry, I forgot I'm also an old married housewife too). Hehe maybe we should just get a job or start buying lottery tickets :)

love ... jaime

Hi dear Josephine,

Me too, I am also very grateful to bb, sweet sister and cloudnine for always keeping us informed of the latest in HRH's news.

Thanks for reminding me of the Fairy series. I was tossing between finishing the last part or starting my travel journal. Thanks for helping me to make a decision. I love to complete the Fairy series for HRH's birthday :)

BTW, sorry that I am confused. Are you living in Beijing or Philadelphia? I vaguely remember there are BYJ fans in Philadelphia.
Are you travelling there?

regards ... jaime

Dearest Jaime and Bae-bies:
I am a Filipino professor teaching in the oldest university of Asia for the past forty years, so I am in my sixties. I am retired from undergraduate teaching, but I still do research, teach in the Graduate School, and serve as panel examiner in the oral defense of theses and dissertations. Presently, I am in India's Silicon Valley IT Tech savvy center (Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai) and relocating to Philadelphia.
With pleasure, I hope to read your blogs and autobiographical writings (that is a new literary genre) even from Pennsylvania. For example, from these pictures and inspired drawings of Regie, it is very obvious that every pose of Bae Yong Joon has character and attitude. That distinguishes a great actor from the ordinary ones.
Sarang Hamnida,

Hi dear Jaime!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

As always, thank you for sharing Regie's wonderful artwork with us. I really enjoy her creativity and the beauty/handsomeness she captures of HRH.


Take care!

PS: Is your son ready for school? Mine has been at school for the past 2 weeks helping the teachers set up for Monday. I feel like we've already begun a new school year. I hope you son enjoys his school year!!

Dear Josephine,

Thank you for your introduction. I hope you will have a pleasant move to the US. There are so much legal procedures involved with an international relocation. Well, Philadelphia is not too far from New York, which there is a BYJ fan club and many sisters living there. Hope everything will go smoothly for you, please take care!

love ... Jaime

Dear Vegas,

It's nice to hear that your son is getting ready for school, he is such a fine young man. Mine has already started last week, so far he's having a great time enjoying making new friends. Now if only you can teach me how to encourage my boy to study, you will save my life :)

please take care!

love ... jaime

Dearest Jaime:
I have three children who are all college graduates and master's degree holders, and two are now doing post graduate degrees in Philadelphia.
When my children were pre-school and in the elementary, I used to tutor them the whole morning, and I worked in the university only in the afternoons. We watched the television together (Sesame Street) in between the tutoring from one subject to another. When they are tired, I do not force them to study. I let them eat and play in between. Tutoring is a game for us.
Having journeyed with them through college, I emphasize that they may not be admitted to the best universities if their grades are not B, or they do not master English, math and science. Then they lose their opportunity to study in the Ivy League.
I do not know if you agree. Happy tutoring. The mantra is study is play.
