In the National Capital Region, a highly urbanised metropolitan, seeing flowers randomly is almost impossible for decades now. Thus, when we went to Ilocos Norte, Philippines a few years back, I had the opportunity to see these beautiful Yellow Bell flowers growing in the home that we went to. This was the first time I saw a Yellow Bell up close, I’ve only seen this in school textbooks.

Here are a few photos I took.

Recently, I have been encountering threads asking and discussing if a work based on a Public Domain work is fanfiction. It is good that writers are now concerned if their new work is within the bounds of the Copyright law, unfortunately, many are still under the assumption any work based on someone else’s work is automatically fanfiction.

The YOOki (柳紀 ・ 유 기) Chronicles

The YOOki (柳紀 ・ 유 기) Chronicles is ᜌᜓᜃᜒ (Yuki ・ 雪亮)’s return into casual and personal blogging. The name “YOOki” is a mash-up of the acronym of YourOnly.One and my nickname ᜌᜓᜃᜒ (Yuki ・ 雪亮).

Interestingly, according to Chinese legend, 「柳」 (YOO) is an ancient Chinese surname. The ancestors of the surname were closely linked with the ancient sage-king named Yu Shun. In Korea, the 「유」 (YOO) lineage traces to the Xia, Han, and Joseon dynasties. Holders of the surname Yu or Yoo had a reputation for charity and diligence.1

It is also the word for “willow” or the “willow tree” which means graceful or slender; and a tree growing near a body of water which provide continuous nourishment and resources for everyone. It can also mean to exist, an oil (anointment(?)), and simply as “U” (you).

The hanzi 「紀」 (ki) character means to record, be disciplined, provide order. While the hangul equivalent, 「기」 (ki; gi), means energy, spirit, a banner, and a period of time; and is also a suffix used to make a gerund or an infinitive.

Can you guess what I mean by 「柳紀」 and 「유 기」 as the Chinese and Korean for “YOOki”?
