4.When was the last time you cried? 上一次哭是什么时候？
Just a few days ago, I saw the touching works made by my colleagues in memory of Kobe. Those works triggered a lot of memories from over a decade working on Kobe’s projects. His passing is a deplorable moment. Thanks to Kobe for the strength and change he has brought to us over the years. RIP Dear Kobe.
就前几天，看见了同事为纪念科比做的作品，实在太感人。这钩起了十多年来为科比项目拼过的各种回忆。他的离开令人痛惜。感谢科比这些年来带给我们的力量和改变。RIP Dear Kobe.
5.What would the title of your autobiography be? 如果写一本自传的话，书名会叫什么？
《Aquarium》, my own story is not fascinating enough , but it would be fun to include all the friends and relatives who have influenced me
