I make sketches whenever I find something inspiring and touching. Those moments filter through my mind and create a small world in my sketch book.

Dear Fairy

 Maya and her friend has been writing a few letters to the fairies who live in the bush in the playground.  They really want to find out if the fairies are real, not faked by their parents or someone. Last time they left their letters in the bush, the fairies didn't reply. Maybe, because of heavy rain that night… So they tried again. Then, guess what happened? The letters were gone. Instead, there were two tiny bouquet of wild flowers!!! Two girls were thrilled!!! Maya came home so excitedly and put it in a cup with water. She told our cats not to eat it, because it is a special bouquet from fairies.
They are planning to send another letters to the fairies next week…. The fairies are very busy that they won't be able to reply to all of their letters, though...

Magic Portion

Maya came to the kitchen and asked me, "Mama, do you have anything juicy?" There were some fruits on the table, so I told her to eat them. But She took a container and started to mix stuffs! Milk, grapes, the skin of an apple and herbal tea??? I asked her what she is making, but she didn't tell me… She taped the sign saying "Do not drink!!!" and stored it in the refrigerator…  I just overheard the conversation with her and her friend, so I know what it is! It is Magic Portion! It's been in the refrigerator for one week already. What should I do with it???

マヤがキッチンにやってきて、「ママ、何かジューシーなものある?」と聞いてきました。テーブルの上に果物があったのでそれを食べるように言うと、食べようとはせず、入れ物にいろいろなものを入れて掻き混ぜ始めました!牛乳、ぶどう、リンゴの皮、ハーブティー。。。何を作っているのか聞いても教えてくれません。最後に、"Do not drink!!!"と書いた紙を張り付け、冷蔵庫に入れました。実は、お友達とマヤの会話を盗み聞きしたのですが、どうやら「魔法の薬」を作っているようです!!!その「魔法の薬」は、もう1週間も冷蔵庫の中にあるのですが、どうしたらよいものか???
