" THERE was, said Claudio Abbado, a certain sound to snow ..."


THERE was, said Claudio Abbado, a certain sound to snow. It did not come from walking on it. If you stood on a balcony, too, you could hear it. A falling sound, fading away to nothing, pianissimo, like a breath ...

Right on the dot...the organized stampede

Mmm, mmmmmm, mmmmmmmmmm. There's nothing like a fresh pineapple, mangosteen, kiwi or strawberry.  Well, at least those are my favorite fruits anyways.  I have to admit that whether it is a favorite fruit, candy, a favorite dish or meal, my mouth begins to salivate; sometimes just by the thought of eating one.  However, there is just something I can’t really wrap my head around.  Maybe it is because I am a ‘privileged’ citizen from a modern nation, with access to certain ‘luxuries’ and…

Center of the Universe

Lives will forever be changed, all life would cease to exist and/or the world as we know it would be only an afterthought.  Let’s admit it, this is what most of us perceive to be the case if we ourselves, on an individual basis, no longer existed.  Sounds quite narcissistic right?  Be it as it may, or may not be, a selfishly conjured up notion such as this can’t be thought of as anything other than narcissistic and egotistical –at least in my own ‘humble’…

I Love Canada



Aug. 12 - Moved to our new home in Canada.

I am so excited. It's so beautiful here. The mountains are so majestic.

Can hardly wait to see them with snow covering them.


Oct. 14 - Canada.  

It is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all colors and shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the beautiful countryside and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animals on earth.  This must…

The Spring Festival

      Far and away the most important holiday in China is the Spring Festival, also known as the Chinese New Year. To the Chinese people it is as important as Christmas to people in the West. The dates for this annual celebration are d etermined by the lunar calendar rather than the Gregorian calendar, so the timing of the holiday varies from January to early February.

     To the ordinary Chinese, the festival actually begins on the eve of the lunar New Year's Day and ends on the…

If really marriage is just paper , why not give?


人们往往不轻易 送给别人 自认为重要,珍贵的东西。




是否因 即使真正生活在一起,但仍然 很在乎证书,不能像 给一张纸似的 轻易送人?

Chinese words 1—有鼻子有眼

有鼻子有眼 (yǒu bí zǐ yǒu yǎn)

Vivid description; description full of details


Wǒ xiǎng tā bú huìpiàn wǒ, yīn wéi tā shuō de yǒu bí zǐ yǒu yǎn

I don’t think he lied to me because he decribed the whole thing in vivid detail.

Miss China and the good people there!

After living in China for 10 years, I went back home to the USA and have been here for the past 2 years.  I find myself missing the Chinese culture and people.  I don't miss the pollution and crowds but in a funny way, I sort of do...Chinese people are so nice and it's so much easier to make real friend in China than home in the USA.  I seem to feel more comfortable around Chinese people...didn't think I would feel this way but I miss China, especially the good friends and their smiles.

The golf opening eye.

Of the autumn moon

Winked slyly, a grin.

In a metro window.

The passengers dozed,

iPhones and no ideas.

Lost in their labours,

So the yolk of light

Gilded the shadows

Of two human lumps.

Stuck around a bag

Of all earthly goods,

Wandering the dao

Of the Chinese night.

Weed-like she wrapped.

Him tight to her lips

To whisper in smiles

Each part English name.

Of each passing… Continue

Gotta get back...

Love everything about Beijing, I've been away for four years and it has been difficult. Coming to the close of my studies, I'm obsessed with getting back there and building a career.

Since I met some of my best friends in Beijing, I can't wait to make some new ones :)

A Look Into The Teaching/Modeling Scenario In Beijing

To an alien familiar with China, it is of no secret that working as a part time teacher or even getting acting/modeling assignments are great ways to earn a fast buck. Of course, Europeans and Americans and the likes are also open to dating/getting married to (probably rich) Chinese men or even women who crave for the fantasy of the white skin. Yes, such immense obsession that this potential superpower has with the actual superpower; it is…
