Jim

Posted in Uncategorized on July 12, 2017 by lelandwong


So sorry to hear old friend, Jim Wong-Chu of Vancouver has passed away.

I’ve known him since the early seventies…he was involved in Vancouver’s Chinatown. He accomplished a lot of things in his lifetime. As a photographer, writer, community organizer, poet, taiko drummer, gungfu man, as well as a popular letter carrier with the Canadian postal service.
Jim suffered a massive stroke which left him unable to speak or move for the last few months. Knowing Jim he would not want to live his life that way.
Thanks to his wife Marlene for her care and love.
I will really miss him.  May Jim Rest In Peace.

Hey man…Are You OK?

Posted in Uncategorized on June 16, 2017 by lelandwong

So I drew this guy hanging and posted on my FB.  People began to worry about me and asked me if I’m OK.  They thought I was about to kill myself.  They’re goddamn crazy!!!


I ain’t gonna kill myself!


Now why the hell would I wanna do that?


Life is a song worth singing.


Life has many surprises you will never know.


Life is a bowl of cherries.

It is the constant pursuit of material things that makes one unhappy.


A mind is a terrible thing to waste.


Stop bitching at the poor guy.  It’s not his fault.6


Make love… not war.


Mean people are vexations to the spirit.


Live each day like it was your first.

Don’t sweat the small stuff in life.


Let the bad feelings roll off like water off a duck’s back.


If you always compare yourself to others, you will always be unhappy.


Just because your candidate didn’t win doesn’t mean it is the end of the world.


Just be thankful for what you’ve got.


Spread a little joy in this world!I


Without vision the people perish.


It’s just money… don’t worry about it!


Quit taking it out on other people because of your faults.


In your golden years reflect on your all great accomplishments you made in your life.


Stop monku’ing


Take time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.


Life is measured by the length of your noodles.

You can’t take it with you. 

For when you die…it’s gonna be hot hot hot!

Dear daughter bought some fancy cheese at Trader Joe’s for $6.

Two weeks later the cheese is all moldy.  I trimmed away the mold and ate it.  No diarrhea…check!  A-OK!
