The Year of Dog is around the corner. [As I] looked back at [my] growth in the past year, [I felt] the HON visual art show that MoCA Shanghai and I hosted to celebrate the historic moment of the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return [to China] was the best and proudest thing in my opinion. Leave comments about your memories and what moved you. We will press “China Like” for you. Let’s reflect on the beautiful moments of the past year. In 2018, we will forge ahead hand in hand.

The Year of Dog Wang Wang Wang! I am on CCTV #Spring Festival Gala# #tag Spring Festival Gala# Live streaming now, I am waiting for you here→ Link.

Note: “Wang wang wang” means “Woof woof woof” and “prosper, prosper, and prosper.”

Waiting for someone? Waiting makes one excited. All dressed up, looking forward to the person one wants to meet with. A mug of coffee is steaming on the table. Quietly rehearsing how one intends to express himself. Waiting for the waiting moment he wants. 30 minutes pass by. Suffering every passing second. He gradually forgets what he wants to say to you. Disappointed, disheartened, discouraged, losing self-confidence, losing himself. Outside the window, it starts raining. Standing under the awning, wiping off the water on the clothes, the person gazes off into the distance and mumbles to himself. Everyone has the waiting moment that belongs to them. You are waiting for him He is waiting for someone. Someone is waiting for an opportunity that might be missed. Every moment. Everywhere. I don’t pay attention to the time. I keep recalling. Rehearsing over and over in my mind. Waiting for someone that understands you. It clears up. I walk out the door. I look up and see the rainbow after the rain. You pat my shoulder from behind. I don’t turn back. I ask myself first: Am I ready?
