The 34th Annual Costume Ball “Return to the Raj” at Hydro Majestic Hotel Medlow Bath, Blue Mountain

Last Sunday we attended  the annual Costume Ball in Blue Mountain. This is our Fourth year participating at the ball. Every year the Ball is getting better than the year before. For the very first time the ball was held at the Iconic Hydro Majestic Hotel, Medlow Bath, Blue Mountain. In the past the ball was always held at the Fairmont Resort, Leura.

This year the theme was “Return of the Raj”. So I arranged a table of 10 friends to join us at the ball. Here are some of the photographs were taken on the night.

Also I forgot to mentioned my design was the winner of “Belle of the Ball”. I was thrilled and did not expected to win. It was a fun and amazing evening, everyone was having  such a great time.

The theme for the next year ball will be “Moulin Rouge”. I have to start working on the costumes soon and get the group together. These are the costumes I designed  for our group. We have a blast and everyone was enjoying themselves, checking out the costumes and dance the night away.

Gong Hey Fat Choy!

“In Chinese, the upcoming lunar year is directly translated as ‘Year of the Yang’ but the meaning of the word ‘Yang’ is often lost in translation and could mean sheep, goat or ram. However, the most popular expression generally accepted is ‘The year of the sheep’.

The New Year period is the busiest and is considered to be the equivalent of American Thanksgiving in China.

“The significance of the Chinese New Year is primarily familial — it is the one holiday that every member of the family will do his/her absolute best to return home to celebrate the end of the year with the entire family, akin to the American Thanksgiving, for family gathering and to give thanks, all of which centers around FOOD!”

Happy Chinese New Year!

My up coming exhibition “Colour Spectrum” at ArtSHINE Gallery from 11-29 March 2015

For the past few months, I have been busy designing in the day time and painting in the evening. Although my business is fashion and designs outfits and costumes for dancers and entertainment industry , and one of my favourite past time is to switch off designing and pick up a paintbrush and start painting. Creating art and painting on canvases  give me the inner peace where I can leave my frantic day behind and relax and connect with my  art. I would highly recommend you to find a creativity that you can tune in to help you relax so that you can resume to your day job and feel totally fulfil in you life and most of all “Be happy”. My fulfilment is painting.

So what is your creativity when you are not doing your day job or working in your business?

Next month March I will be in a group show “Colour Specrum” with 8 other taltented artists during the Spectrum Now festival Sydney.  The theme is about culture, lifestyle, fashion, art and colours.

Here are some of my art for the show. These artworks still in working in progress stage.
