In memory of my works lost... on January 7, 2010 by 


Some my remember my last journal post. I ran into a string of bad luck and had a horrible week. The worst was I lost a collection of my miniature origami. I kept them in a little orange kinder surprise capsule, which fell out of my bag while I was in the computer lab. Today I found out the custodian had swept it up tossed it in the garbage. Needless to say I was devastated; although I was somewhat expecting this – the little orange capsule after all is something that would easily be mistaken for garbage. I do try to be careful, but when one is having a bad day, it is so easy to get careless…. especially at school; even when the bad luck is not school related…

Luckily though it wasn’t really my entire collection; and a few things in the capsule I have folded extra. The following images however (with exception to the cover), include miniatures that I only folded one of… or at least only one of that colour.

This is a tribute to my pieces lost on January 7, 2010

    The wonderful thing is.. you are the creator.. and that is so so found here… I am so glad to know you and that creations like yours are possible Mui-Ling. I know that does not erase the sadness that happens when one looses precious friends but I wanted you to know how I felt.
    I am so so glad you captured your friends in photos.. which I do hope you have backed up!!

  • Thank you Lina. These photos are backed up. There were however at least 3 models in the capsule that I have never photographed; I just folded them for fun but hadn’t come up with a concept for them yet; but overall I have backed up most.

    I’m so sorry to hear that, Mui-Ling.
    I think you must feel really bad but I like the idea that you kept your tiny origami artworks in an orange Kinder Surprise capsule in your bag!!
    Put the chain or ribbon through it and attach to the bag for the next time.
    I love Kinder Surprise!!

    Oh that is so sad and I can understand your heartache. I wish it had not happened to you. I wish I could make you feel better.
