20 Years Down Under

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 28, 2015, 6:55 AM





Its kinda crazy to think but I have been living down under for quite some time now. Today marks the 20th Year Anniversary of me living in Australia if you could believe it.

  (Not actually a photo of me)

Thats me when I first arrived in Australia, a typical Chinese kid from Hong Kong who didn't speak a single word of English (Now I can speak about 30 words!). I still remember that day when my parents and I arrived in Australia, the weather was cold but sunny, the people would greet you when you walk past them, grass everywhere, that was my first impression on that day.

I do remember being kinda nervous moving to a new country. Especially for my first day of school, my mum went to the school with me and she immediately started looking around for other Asians. She spotted an Asian mother with her kid my age and started talking to them, the mother and her son was quite nice, the mother is from Malaysia but she can speak Chinese, but her son Matthew was born here so his Cantonese was not very fluent, I remember trying to make conversation with him but he replied in English and I thought to myself 'Oh great work mum, you found me a friend that I can't communicate with.' But eventually I started to learn English and he helped me greatly with learning too, he was my first ever friend in Australia and we still hang out to this day.

Here's another story about young Ry thats kinda interesting. I was.. umm.. quite fascinated by.... ahem.. the umm..... white girls. I've always been surrounded by Asians in Hong Kong (Obviously), but then when I came to Australia, I came in contact with these pretty Australian girls with their bright blue eyes and wavy blonde hair and pointy nose, I was like oh my gosh its Princess Zelda in real life! (And I am Link.. except I lack courage, more about that later in the story) Yes, I was attracted to the foreign ladies. I still remember my first crush in primary school, a blonde white girl, her name was Katrina, she wasn't the prettiest girl of the grade but I remember she had a very kind heart and that attracted me. We went to a primary school that had down syndrome and disabled children there too, I think its a great way to teach the kids that everyone should be treated equally, I wish more school did that. Anyway, I remember seeing Katrina taking care of a kid with learning disability, I thought that was so sweet and I fell in love with her. I have spoken to her a few times during school, now I think about it... my English must've been SOOOO bad, I probably had a very heavy unattractive Chinese accent and I might've even used the wrong words, I could've called her a toaster by accident who knows! But yeah she was quite nice to me, I remember there were two times I tried to tell her my feelings (For what reason I have no clue, I was 8, I ain't allowed to date anyone till Im 21 according to my parents!). So the first time was when we went to a school excursion, it was a theme park called Wonderland (It closed down unfortunately). I played one of those theme park games and won myself a little blue dog stuff toy, I was gonna give it to Katrina, but I was nervous as heck! I remember walking up to her...... ready to give her the stuff toy...  and then walked back the other way. I chickened out... I still have that blue dog and its a constant reminder of what a loser I was everytime I look at it. The second attempt was when we were at the school formal, kids were dancing and stuff, and just like a cheesy teen movie, a slow song came up... I saw her sitting there and I was tempted to ask her for a dance (I don't even dance... but it felt right). And this was near the end of primary school, so I know I might never see her again after that, this was my one shot, YOU'VE ONLY GOT ONE SHOT! (Like Eminem in 8 Mile) Anyway so once again I took a deep breath and stood up, I walked across the crowded dance floor, it felt as if time slowed down, I went up to her... ANDDDDD choked (Like Eminem in 8 Mile). I couldn't say it, what if she said no? I would've melt right there to the ground, it would've been so embarrassing. At the end I didn't say it... AND that was it. We both went to a different high school after that and I have never seen her since.

You know, while I was writing this journal, I thought about the time I lived here, the more I think about it, the more I like Australia. I was born in Hong Kong, but I would say that Australia is my home. I've made some great friends here, the air is clean, the humour is great, people are nice in general. I like it here! Here's to another 20 years down under.

Wow, your art is so amazing! I love the detail you put into everything and the nice realistic but still cartoony effect you give your pieces!
Heheh, was reading your little Katrina story xD sah cute!
I wish I knew Chinese~ it seems hard! But then, English (especially Aussie English) is apparently very difficult too...

Keep up the amazing work!!
