Interesting Chinese facts about 11/11/11
Chinese people celebrated every year on November 11th as the “Bachelor Day”, a day for the single people. This is not a traditional festival, but as more and more people noticed the interesting combination of the four same numbers “1”, they gave the day the meaning of being alone and single. Thought it is called “Bachelor Day”, but girls are in too, hey,...

A few minutes later, she was ran over by a truck and the pain aggravated even more. It is reported that within 7minutes, 18 people passed her by but no one wants...

Can Time Travel Be Possible In the Future?
There’s a very popular TV show in China about a young lady working in the big company travels to the past (Qing Dynasty) after she had a car crash and became unconscious. It’s basically a love story, especially when the lady becomes one of the members of the royal family; she falls in love with the crown prince and so does he. I am fascinated with the story—not the love plot—but the idea of time...
I did have nightmares once in a while, but I couldn’t seem to remember any of them at the moment. I can still remind of the horrible feelings that I had. But what was in the dream? I would never know. I didn’t remember most of my dreams, even the good ones. I had a lot of dreams at nights if I was busy in the days. It’s been said that too much dreams will affect the sleep quality,...

discoverynews: This is a fascinating look at how the evolution of society has forced an iconic, once progressive book to change. But has it changed enough and is is still relevant? What makes the text still an important educational tool? “In the beginning, it was about educating women about what they didn’t know,” says Kiki Zeldes, the book’s senior editor. “But it’s become more about...
Give It A Try, Shall We?
Submissions are very welcomed and will be pulished on this blog. I found this on the other website and it’s funny. About 3 years ago the Washington Post ran a poetry competition asking people to write a two-line rhyme with the most romantic first line and the least romantic second line. These are the winning lines I guess. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife, Marrying you screwed up my...
Elisandro had a point here
Ms. Juve: OK, we're going to talk about adjectives today. They describe nouns. For example, what color is a tree?
Ms. Juve: Trees are not brown!
Elisandro: Fine, white.
Ms. Juve: Elisandro! TREES! What color are they?!
Elisandro: Ms. Juve, I get you, the leaves are green. But you said the tree. The tree is actually brown!

Who Dares to Give A Speech?
I would really love to be a stand-up comedian who could tell jokes and stories and make people laugh anytime they want. I could never do that. I suffered tortures thinking about all the public-speaking moments, by which I was immensely intimidated. I can read, I can recite in my loud voice in front of a crowd, but a speech—never! When I stand in front of people, my mind just get lost. I can’t...
Life Could Have Been The Other Way
Sometimes I am just wondering how many possibilities are there behind every decision that had been made. I realized at a very young age that once you made up your mind, things could be very different. A friend invited you to lunch, you go there with him, you’ll meet a lot of people which could include your future husband or someone who could be of great help to your career. Otherwise you might...
