New members Introduction ~ PearlJ and Kleine PearJ

These two came to us via eBay!

They are actually from this exhibition:

The Mauritshuis Gallery, one of Anita’s favorite museums, has closed for renovation.  Their masterpieces went on tour, and one of the stops was Tokyo (and Kobe), Japan.  To commemorate this occasion, Miffy is dressed up as the “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” the famous tronie by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Hence, PearlJ (and Kleine PearlJ).

I think they should be called Griet (the name of the girl in the book Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier) and /or Pearl Jam, just saying.

Here she is - PearlJ in Hollywood Road Park

International fair for children

Here’s what the inside of the Hong Kong Central Library looks like. Well, not exactly the library proper, but its first floor exhibition hall.

It was the last day of some sort of International fair for children during the summer holiday. There wasn’t much but they had information of all the different continents up for children to read, as well as carts of books on geography, history and culture of different regions on the world.
