Rosy Business

I’ve found this Hong Kong TV show very interesting. It’s a story about a heroine who lived in Qing Dynasty. She married to a man who already had three wives, and she had to adjust into this big family and later on she fell for a guy who was a criminal. That’s create a lot of tension within the family. During this time China was not a stable country because of the Taiping Rebellion and other natural disasters, people were starving. The woman tried to help feeding the people, and at the same time the family also falling apart.
I’m impress by the way the Hong Kong TVB making this show. The production has world class standard. From filming to the set and clothing had improved much more than two three decades ago. If they would put English subtitle on it, it will draw the world audients. I’m sick and tired of the US TV nowadays. They only have murder dreamers and stupid comedies, too much violent and low class jokes. This Hong Kong TV shows could be a fresh breath of air to the US audients.

Teacher’s Day in US

It took place on May 5 this year. We did not know when we went to school to see Mrs G. in the Community Home Base Education. I just wanted to show appreciation to her and her daughter Anna who also works there. Let’s say thanks through the internet. The one on my right side is Mrs G. and the one on my left side is Anna. They’ve been guiding us all these years, now Julius is in 4th grade and John is in 3rd grade. and very soon Evelyn will be the first grader too.

Reduce Stress

When the stress level is high in these days, the best way to reduce stress is playing with the children. Tickling is one of the games we play. According to the scientists, listening to the children laughter could actually clam an adult. So if you want to be clam. Try listening to Fanny’s wonderful laughter in this video.

John's An Athlete

Guys have better physical abilities. That’s why they are more physical and tend to show it off. John seems no exception. He had me take a video for him when he was running, he ran like a sportsman. I remember when I was a kid, every time when the teacher had the class to run outside the school in a cycle, I always caught up from the last position to the front. Like mother like son, huh?

Hearty Paws

Evelyn is a very cheerful girl, but sometimes she would become sad after seeing sad movies. Last night, we picked a Korean movie DVD from the box which sent by the Hong Kong relatives to watch. It had kids and dogs on the label, I thought it must be a comedy, but it turn out to be a tragedy, Evelyn could not take it, she cried and cover up her head under the quilt. Tell you the truth, sometimes I just forgot she’s only 5 years old. The sad story in the film was too much for her. All of a sudden, she could not handle the emotion. I had to explain to her it’s only acting, make believe. And later on that night, after she calm down, she told me, “Mama, please don’t show me that movie again!” I was there thinking that last year she cried a little bit when she saw Cinderella, but after she’d seen it dozen times, she seems immune of the sad part. I guess they will grow up and get used to it.
