But we are together, under one roof.... leading a struggling but agreeable life.....

Sunday Boating

Parks with big lakes seemed to get more nimbus... once i was asked the either-or question, as i prefer the seaside or the top of a mountain as an ideal resort.....

( me on the boat)

I enjoy both. But i know that's definitely not the 'wanted' answer, so i chose the seaside..... for as monutain, i have to ' climb up ' and ' climb down' ( cable car robs the most fun of mountain climbing)....but seaside makes it much easier to involve in the picturesque scene.... slim chance to be exhausted :)


( Our spaceship-shaped boat, hahahha )
But something too easy to get makes it less "valuable ", so mountain nicely gives us the chance to experience the "uphill battle "....

I enjoy the left-and-right shaking of the boat when a yacht is passing by..... i felt i was like a tiny paper boat, mirror myself in the shimmering lake.....


A medieval style car-shaped boat...... quite romantic... hum??

What a lonely pig...........


News from Reuters~~

“Afghanistan's only known pig has been locked in a room, away from visitors to Kabul zoo where it normally grazes beside deer and goats, because people are worried it could infect them with the virus popularly known as swine flu.”
........................
The pig was a gift to the zoo from China, which itself quarantined some 70 Mexicans, 26 Canadians and four Americans in the past week, but later released them. ”





What a lonely pig :( How are you doing ??
In 2003, when SARS indulged in wilful persecution, especially in BJ, i was 18 years old and was busy preparing the entrance examination to college....That April, a panicky April did not actually seemed chokey to me , but we did have to wear respirators at school. A girl in the neighbor class drew big, vivid lips on her respirator, which made you feel she was always with a sweet smile..... and it was this smile, been put up on the front page of one local newspaper......


Everyday the first thing to do after we stepped into the campus was to test the body tmeperature, a special shaped equipment ( like a handgun) inserted into your ear, and it cost only 2 sec then you knew whether you've got a fever by one little indicator.
light.


The disgusting smell of disinfector occupied every corner. I even felt i got some OCD sorta thing, as i cannot stop washing my hands many times a day.....
Then in late April, we no longer needed to go to school.... which was definitely not nice to me as in the last month before the final exam, we totally lost all the other school activities besides STUDY,we were separated from friends and being isolated.....The support ,share or even competition from the fellows are crucial for teenagers..... but we've been deprived of this entirely..... but we had to do so in that special period of time..... that was a must......


What did you do in the spring 2003????

A faineant afternoon

I've got two free Tuesday in a row... But what not so nice is free makes hotbed for lazy...

It's rather annoying coming up with the idea that time is wasting ...

But such a warm , breezy early summer day, totally sweep away one's aspirant....

Though that's definitely not what i wanna be.... i mean to be a uselessmouth.....That's not good, hum.......
( dengzi & me )


Dengzi and me we found a newly opened supermarket not far from where we lived, named " Bonjour", lol~~~ just went to see what nice stuff they got there.....

Gym Capriccio

I could never forget the dream that one doctor with an icy face told me i could no longer dance... i lied on a litter, several nursers carried me running through the long,endless, despairing corridor... i thought i felt the cold ,heartbreaking tears down.....



And the tears did wet my pillowcase which i found after waking up ....




The " nightmare" was still fresh here in my mind even though 3 years passed. And i was no longer that crazy about dancing, as there are not that many friends around me fancy about dancing, so being a rather solid group is not that easy...


I missed my dance teacher Mrs.Wong a lot, from the ABC of ballet to formed classical plays, we spent a period of rather nice time that'll never be substituted....and now i've already got over the ligament strain( what the nightmare was about ) on my right leg, though no sport-related injuries are actually reversible :( .......

6...10...16...20....25..............................


When i was 6, i looked at the mirror, " when could i be 10??", at that time, "10 years old" was "mature" enough for me......



When i was 10, i dreamed the day i could be 16, as the so-called flowery age....but when i could really say i was 16, i found nothing special....



Then i was surrounded by the longing of being 20....and finally it came one day, peaceful, quiet.......



Now i'm 25, everything works in its orginal orbit, can't complain...i still enjoy looking at myself in the mirror many times a day, sometimes i see a beautiful little Miss Gao there, sometimes there was an unlovely one with a screwy face....



Anyway, it is me, i've no reason to ditch her, perfect or flawy...that's no longer important.... ^_^

Two fairies drew on the ground , snatch a shot quickly or they would get vaporized---- drew with water!!! lol~~~~




The outside world was running past me .....

Heaven can wait belt up

16 years ago, on my way home back from school, i witnessed a terrible car accident. The bloody scene imprinted in my memory for so many years, and it's still fresh now, i dread to picture that scene again, but it positively reminded me every time i was pressed for time and tended to jump the red light......

9 years ago, the guy lived in the door opposite my house was hit by a lorry when he tried to cross the street. When the news came that he died , i was almost numb with terror. I didn't dare to even take a glance at his door, and i felt the whole corridor was filled with frozen air all day long....and it actually took me rather a long time to remove this shadow in my mind...

Serval days ago, i accidentally saw this following public interest ad, you can read what it's about from the title " Heaven can wait belt up", it's really a nice ad, to say nice , only becasue of its ingenious design, but any accident is awful ........No matter which seat you take in a car, the driver or just the hitcher, TIE YOUR SEAT BELT, not for any body else , but for your own life ^_^

First time to see a fetus :)

Today today, is my first time to see a " in strict sense"----fetus. Dongdong and me we went to the hospital for a regular physical examination. Outside the room for B scan, a young lady lined up first in the queue, dongdong and me followed, I should say it was the lack of personalized service by this hospital offered me the chance to see " a fetus" for the first time , as we three were asked in at the same time, and the lady told the doctor, "I'm pregnant."


It was not her regular gravid clinic examination, so her husband did not accompany with her. Now in the B scan room, only we three. Frankly speaking, i was a little bit excited ( for each 'first time' in your life ^_^), the doctor squeezed some ointment on her belly ( later i knew it was called " Ultrasonic Transmission Gel " to ensure enough contact between the probe and your body ), and the only thing i did was to hold my breath & fix my eyes on the small screen, i really didn't have any idea what image would emerge there though the same scene had appeared on TV shows million times :)



Finally as the doctor moved the probe on her belly, a blurry figure emerged and gradually turned clear!! I could distinctly see the outline of that little hindbrain, and the spain, two rather " spindlelegs " crossed in front...... i was almost numb with shock, mixed with a kinda blazing touch. It was a LIFE!!! With head, nose , eyes, ears, mouth,legs..... a few months later it can get hairs.... and it finally could become a total man..... that's so magical and holy !!



The lady turned her head sideways and saw her baby, i think that must be a wonderful moment, if it were me , i must have been intoxicated in the happiness , hehe ^_*



I almost cried with excitement during these several minutes......

Being excited for the first time to see a fetus.... also being touched by the beatific lady on her family way.....


God bless you......

A SPECIAL HAIRPIN

I got a special present from a little girl today ! It was a pink hairpin made of cloth, with a bow at one butt, on top of the bow there 'bloomed' a nice flower with little green leaves...




To be honest, it was totally not my type as the "childish-looking", and the a little bit too loud color. But you know the moment she looked up at me with that tender face, I think i glimpsed a heartshaking ray of light from those pure black pupils.


She lifted her hand with this hairpin up to me, " Miss Gao, this is for YOU!!!" ... She specially toned the word 'you', which made little Miss Gao felt it was so holy a hairpin.


I took this larruping hairpin from her hand, " Will you wear it?" she asked me, " Sure!!" I carefully wrapped it in a tissue and put it into my bag, i found a beatific smile on her face, then she ran away...


On the way back, I can't help stroking this little hairpin inside my bag and felt warm and contented......

Weekend travel to Jingdezhen & Wuyuan

A tiny countryside named Likeng hided in the deep of Wuyuan, with all Ming & Qing dynasty style architectures standing alongside the river.... They all are still in use as abodes of the local people.
Wuyuan is famous for its rape flowers all over the mountains and plains, the blooming period is from 15the March to 15 April.

This photo is taken from a running bus, wherever you set up the camera, you will find a nice picture appeared in the viewfinder :)







Have a rest along the Mandarin Duck Lake~~~





Take a rest again, lol~~



Still in the countryside, quiet, pure, and a wonderful place for a daily meditation indeed.


Live here for a month, no other annoyances, no pollution, just play with the footstep of time.



JingDezhen is world-famous for its elegant china, it is said to be" as white as jade , as thin as paper and as clear as mirror "... what you see in the picture was taken in a bathroom, even the washbasin was decorated with patterns of blue-and-white porcelain!! :)

What really counts??

The picture right outside the extrance of the ladies' locker room in Bally, which reminds you subtly to keep fit, to build your body. Or more, as if one can "cut down" the extra fat outright by a pair of sharp scissors ^_^




Several weeks ago, on my first step aerobics class, the apparently complicated routine was a little bit beyond me, i thought i was agile enough to support this , but after 2/3 of the total time, i could not be able to insist anymore, i had to keep a clear idea how it worked in mind while did the same movement synchronously...... so i had to stop to fine-tune myself...


And it was by this chance, i found something tellable, something worth the whistle. There were about 2o or more in the Group Exercise Room ( just by rough eyeballing) , more than 3/4 were ladies of all ages. I was a total dabster among them, presumably they all were quite familiar with the routine and did every step subconsciously. That was good, undoubtly, but what was not nice was, they knew it "too well "and become mechanical , you could find only a stiff brow, perplexed eyes, and robot-like legs and arms, some of them might no longer feel it was actually an energetic exercise but just did every footwork correctly.


What the real value of sport is ? I don't think it is losing weight or something ,but to find happiness, to enjoy yourself on the top your bent, not matter you are always stay in the second gear in life, at work or whatever, the fun of doing sports is fair to anyone :)


Whatever a dabster or an expert, have fun, that counts :)

Weekend fun !!!

Something you won't stop questioning its facticity until you actually test it yourself!!

I did an absolutely interesting experiment yesterday evening at my house, i got the spirit from the latest issue of "Reader's Digest".

Okay, here come with me and witness the moment of miracle :)


All stuff we need were: a potato( a common one from the supermarket ) , a glass( any material is okay), and a straw ( as the one you could get from Mcdonald's ).



What we try to verify is , whether the tender-looking plastic straw could pierce through the rather compact potato ?????

The main gist or say like knack is to :

1) Hold the straw tightly with your four fingers ( no thumb).
2) Use your thumb to seal against the top hatch of the straw.
3) Do a menditation first (^_^) and concentrate all your strength on the straw, then thrust towards the potato at full tilt.

See what happened??? The delicate-looking straw actually pierce through the potato and you see i can lift the potato together with the cup just by slightly holding the straw.


Try it again with more strength. OMG !!! The straw totally penetrate through the potato !!!!!!!!!

The whole process without using any other instrument, what you see in the picture was all what i did. Sometimes it is only when you try it yourself then you finally realize how there could be so many "incredible" things around us ^_^ In fact , it is not hard to explain what happend, when you seal against the top hatch of the straw, you equally isolate the circulation of air inside the straw, no wonder it could become so firm ^_*

You can try it yourself and HAVE FUN !!! :)

Follow the pace of spring ( In my campus)

Just over one night, bare branches have changed clothes..

Dotted with numerous light pink flowers...
In my campus, pine trees look all the same throughout the year lol~~~
Winter jasmine.. ... as if it would be disturbed by just a gentle touch :)
Winter jasmine in bud.....
See those just flowering peachblossoms, tender as a little girl's cheeks.....

Peachblossoms at night....


Every year,

I tried to seize the moment leaves turn green, flowers bloom from the buds...

But year after year,

All these happened over one night...

So quiet... as if they don't wanna wake anybody up...

What a fantastic night that would be!!

Silence...

But new lives are on the way, running ...

Pleasant surprises are doomed to happened the next morning.....

Waiting for the first ray of sunshine in this lovely spring.......

And you?

You hear the footstep of the spring girl? ..............
