Hi again (poor neglected blog).
Things are moving along with Market preps and I wanted share that I will be at:
Etsy Made Local (Nov 26, 2017)
Handmade Hong Kong (Dec 10, 2017) booth #7
Both are in Discovery Bay from 11am-6pm
I love to tell my son and his friends the story behind my dolls. Real places with a magical flair. Here are some of my dolls that will be there and their stories:
Hong Kong Mer-People
There are many mer-people living in the waters of Hong Kong. They love to play with the children that are near the waterside, splashing them with their tails to make them smile.
Each mer-person has glittery hair, as the sun shines on their golden locks. Whenever the angry typhoon monster comes by, the mer-people join together to protect the people from harm by fighting the typhoon monster away.
The people cheer as the typhoon disappears and the sun shines on Hong Kong again.
The mer-people are never far incase another typhoon monster should appear and the people of Hong Kong know they are in safe hands.
Jellyfish of Jeju Island:
In the waters surrounding Jeju Island, a little 해파리 (jelly fish) swims around the famous Korean island.
While the locals are sleeping he flies out of the waters to go eat the delicious 한라봉 (special jeju island oranges) and disappears back into the waters before sunrise.
Sometimes you can see a little sparkle in the sun as it becomes morning and that means little 해파리 just went back into the waters.
Local farmers don’t mind because he adds a little magic to their day
君 the Octopus of Hong Kong
Every sunset a little octopus named 君 (“Gwon” meaning gentleman in Cantonese) swims over from the Deep South China Sea to a place called 海星灣: Starfish Bay. It’s in a little area of #hongkong (Ma On Shan)where it is quiet and peaceful.
The locals also go out in low tide to collect the clams that have appeared as they walk out into the bay.
Little do they know, it’s actually little 君 stretching out his tentacles to create the low tides for the locals to pick their clams.
He smiles as he watches families spending time together, children laughing and kicking the water.
And when they are all done, he swims back into the deep waters and visits again the next day.
And of course some other favourites from my Etsy shop. From Nov 26-Dec 11, 2017: my Etsy shop will have free shipping to all Hong Kong residents! Incase you can’t make it to my Markets, then you won’t be missing out. ❤️
I hope to see you all in Discovery Bay very soon!
