This special festival is on December 22 this year, there were hordes of people at the restaurant of dumplings that day in north China, they might eat Tangyuan in the south China, but some old native people in Beijing would like Huntun or wonton, the dumplings in soup.

Bird's Nest or Yin Yang Yu





Bird's Nest or Yin Yang Yu

An old man built a bird's nest on the ground in the park, which was built with fallen branches of pine. After finish of building, he stood in the nest for practicing station of  Taiji, so this pile of fallen branches was not a bird's nest, in his opinion it should be Yin Yang Yu, he practiced in the yin yang yu, he could get the better Kong Fu.
Today the cleaner cleaned up the fallen branches and leaves in the park, they also took the bird's nest away. I didn't meet the old man, he may be angry.

The Room With a North Window





The Room With a North Window

The house I rented has four individual rooms and spacious and well-lighted parlor, four young guys have his own personal room and share the public space.
I live in the room at the nearby parlor. The room has enough space for a single man, but a little confined for two people. The room has a north window, though the window faces north, the room is full of sunshine. Why? Because two building stand behind the storied building which I live, the glasses of upstairs balcony reflect the sunshine to the opposite building. One brings bright sunshine to me in the morning, another gives the light and heat of the sun in the afternoon. So it sounds great, the room with a north window is full of sunshine each sunny day.
I could number the stars in the north sky at night, and enjoy sunshine in the daytime through the north window.

Early Bird This Morning

Early Bird This Morning

It sounds crazy, I got up at 3 am this morning, not for football match, not for work. 
It's vagarious. Got up so early, then went to the park. The park was undisturbed, no man there. The trees bowed down their heads, the wind was passing by. The light from far building was misty, I could sea nothing at first, after ten minutes, I adapted to the faint gleam of light.
It's still dark at 5 am, but more and more people appeared in the park, they were running, or enjoying the peaceful rest time. At 6 am, the sky didn't turn to white and I left the park.

Noodles 





Noodles

What do you eat everyday? Which foods you like best at breakfast, lunch, dinner?
What about noodles every meals? You may think I am crazy, eating noodles every meals? But really, noodles three times a day, noodles in soup at breakfast, noodles with sauce at lunch, noodles at dinner too. Many people in west of China love noodles, live on noodles, and can't live without noodles. They may dislike rice, if they don't eat noodles, the bread is their first choice. 
I am not tired of eating noodles, even three times a day, but I must have different noodles every meal, the spaghetti, the French noodles, Zhajiang Mian, La Mian, Che Mian, and so on.

I Am a Chipmunk





I Am a Chipmunk

Chipmunks like grain, nuts, eggs, fungi, vegetables and fruits, so do I. But they also like worms, insects, and small frogs, these foods don't exist in my diet.
I have downloaded more than twenty films from the nets, which I really wanted to watch; I have gotten more than one hundred books in my computer; I have downed downloaded more than ten G songs through p2p tools. A lot of these things have been collected and kept in some places, and I don't watch, read, listen them any more. I just stockpile, like a chipmunk, when spring come, I just eat little nuts.
I collect the things for stock, not for enjoying, reading, listening, just for stock.
I have noticed this fault, but can't remedy. I think I am voracious, not for the truth, the knowledge, information, but for the numbers.

Let Some People Get Rich First





Let Some People Get Rich First

"Rang yi bu fen ren xian fu qi lai", said by Deng Xiaoping. The simplified version is "To get rich is glorious", also means "Let some people get rich first".
I could say nothing about the "To get rich is glorious", because I am a poor man, and I was born in the country, and my father doesn't belong to the people who have gotten rich first last 30 years.

Ma De in China





Ma De in China

You may know the words "made in China" on your cups, plates, clothes, household appliances, toys, and, and so on, but do you know the words "Ma de in China"?

"Ma de" is a slang words for "shit","damn", even "fuck", used to express annoyance. "Made in China" is all English word, and "ma de" are Chinese Pinyin, just divide the word "made" into two pinyin words "ma" and "de", the Chinese characters are "妈的".

"Made in China" means low price, cheap goods, also fake goods. "Ma de in China" just means a lot of inconceivable things that happened in China, eg the Great Fire Wall, Feng zhenghu, "Chengguan", "removal",etc.
