You might have heard of the story of “Xavier Anonyme” , the label of the wine .
This time the story is about an artist.
Hongky girl is a negative term implying : vain, rude, pragmatic and “ Princess Syndrome “. I guess it all depends on different vintages . From 70’s to 90’s there is still a big bunch of kind, faithful , diligent , traditional and scarifying women in
HK deeply suppressed by Chauvinism.
The heroine of our story was born in the 60’s, a very talented girl married to a truck driver who kept concubine in China during the 90’s which was common place in the era. She was battered for decades by her Chiuchowese husband all through her marriage and suffered from depression. So depressed that she has got cancer. She has been well taken care under our welfare system.
When I first saw her paintings and calligraphy, I cannot believe that she is just a beginner.
She has got 2 sons, one of them are still studying in the college. Imagine, under this family background , they have a miserable childhood.
What is all this mumble jumble about ?
I just want to help because she is an alumni of my primary school. I guess materials to her is nothing at this stage of life. I would like her to be remembered as a very talented artist instead of an abandoned wife living in melancholy . It will be meaningful to the cubs. I would like her to know that she is not alone and to recognize her self value, let her know that her works can be powerful and to energize her to fight cancer.
We are hosting a charity silent auction of her works for this anonym, during the tendering, a wine lunch with wine sponsored by Tina Cellar will be served. Guests will enjoy back vintages of Xavier Anonyme Chateauneuf du Pape and half price discount for on spot purchase of all Xavier Vins wine. All income of the paintings and 50% of wine profit will be contributed to the anonym artist who needs our encouragement to pick up her brush again and to fight cancer.
Join me please to wash the name of Hongky Girls.
