Well, what a most hectic and somewhat inconvenient last few months.
Just after myself and Pipsinpaddle founded Monkey-Magic-Cloud I was sent for by the Jade Emperor. So not wishing to offend the Emperor of Heaven I hastily flew to heaven on my somersault cloud.
When I got there I discovered that the Jade Emperor wanted me to be the head of the stables; he even assigned me the special title of Protector of the Horses. Of course, this was not an apt title or role for someone as important as me – after all I am The Great Sage Equal of Heaven – so I kind of just shook things up a bit in Heaven; I just wanted to teach them all a bit of a lesson about who they are messing with.
Well, after they discovered that all the Gods, generals and stars of Heaven were no match for me, they sent for Tathagata Buddha to get me to stop creating havoc in Heaven. That sneaky Buddha tricked me and trapped me under a rock, where I could not get out!
Fortunately for me the Bodhisattva Guan Yin, the compassionate, has given me another chance, and I have now converted to Buddhism and am travelling to fetch the scripture from the Western Temple in India with my master the Venerable Elder Sanzang (Tripitaka).
Pipsinpaddle has also converted to Buddhism and is my trusty Gold-Banded Cudgel. She is always by my side, and together, with the lazy and stupid Zhu Bajie (Pigsy) and the introspective Sha Wujing (Sandy), we are on our way to fetch the scriptures.
So, we’re back and through our iPad will continue to keep everyone updated on how our adventure is going and how much mincemeat we are making out of the monsters and demons we encounter.
If you would like to follow our adventure, or show your Journey to the West/Monkey Magic fan art, then send a request and join the fun!
We appreciate all contributions and suggestions.
