Golden Gate Park

We went for a bike ride in the park on Sunday. Just the boys and I enjoying the empty street, that’s because of the city has a brilliance idea that shut down the road inside the park for bikers. Here is the Rainbow Fall which near the west end of the route.
Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, USA
上星期日我帶同兩個兒子去金門公園踏單車, 馬路上完全沒有交通,因為三藩市實施逢星期日於公園內封閉部份道路, 好讓大眾有塲地享受天倫之樂。沿途風景優美!

Melrose Place

I’ve been hook with the online TV serials recently. Just finished the first season of Melrose Place. I love it. It’s about a bunch of young people who were renting an apartment complex in LA. Can you believe that too many good looking people live in the same building? Alright it’s just a show. But I still learn some of the American culture with it. The story is OK. But at the end , there were some characters started to act strange. I’m a realistic person, I found it hard to believe . You can search the story at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melrose_Place_%28TV_series%29 . The next show I am gonna watch will be Beverly Hills 90210. Talk some more after finish that.

Down

Don’t feel like writing anymore. I glued myself in front of the computer screen long hours for old tv serials. Remember there was a movie about a comedian being locked up in the P.O.W. camp during WWII. I forgot what was the title of it. He tried anything to make people cheerful even they knew they were going to be kill. That’s how comedians are. Basically they are sad people. Don’t have mood to say anything. Hope this will be over soon.

Angel Island

Have you been Angel Island? It’s a beautiful place for hiking in summer, but a hundred years ago when Chinese immigrant came to this country. They were detain on this island. They needed to go thought the quarantine procedure. Everybody had to stay on the island for months, even years. If they could not pass the test, they would be send back to China. Some of them could not stand the unknown future, they committed suicide. Some of them wrote poems on the walls of the cells to express their feelings. Similar to what we do blogging nowadays. Just like movie star Meryl Streep said, “ I feel much better after blogging”. http://www.angelislandferry.com/

Broken

I saw a new product in TV yesterday. It’s a self photo taking device. It’s just like a hand held tripod. I like this idea, so I made one myself. It worked fine but the screw of that little tripod had broken. We’d only use it less than an hour. Fortunately the camera did not fall. The goods of China really need to be improved.

Gymnastic baby

I remember when she was in my womb, she kicked very hard. She was the baby who kicked hardest and more often. I almost felt like my belly going to be protruded. Now, she can use her legs as much as she likes.

The dreams of 100 mothers

When I look back my life, there was something missing. Such as being an athlete or a musician. I always love sport and music. I used to have a toy electric piano when I was a kid. I played music that I heard from the radio. And I was doing great in PE class. Couple times I was choose to perform in front of the whole class. But I did not have opportunity to pursuit it. That’s because of my family could not afford it. I had to help doing the house work after school. Therefore, I buried my dream for years. Now, I have my own family. I will do whatever it takes to let my children develop their interests. I hope someday they will compete with people from all over the world.

Little Mermaid

What a joy being a parent. I would have a big smile every time when I see this video. Evelyn loves the music in Little Mermaid. She sang it in the bath room the other day. And Fanny sang it in the back ground too. Can you tell which song is it?
