So for the past couple of posts, I’ve had a follower asking me to do this design and even promised me to be my best friend if I do. What a crazy person. (Just kidding, she’s actually my best friend lol.)
For those of you who don’t know Chinese or are unfamiliar with this character, here’s the story:
The Chinese character I used is “囧” (pronounced as GWING), and to be honest, I’m not sure what the true meaning of the word means. But it’s being used as a slang word to describe an emotion/a person’s expression. Basically, you can say its an Asian counterpart to a frowning face like :( or D:
So instead of saying “sad face”, it’s “Gwing face”.
I came upon this word after watching this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfHOCxPSBcw&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Anyways, I’ll be going away on vacation to Hong Kong for the coming month. Be on the lookout because I’ll for sure be doing a giveaway when I come back. But until then, I’ll probably be posting less. 囧!
