Moving Forward to One Hundred Years


I'm having hot chocolate in this paper cup, the very famous commercial about this guy. I'll tell a bit of the story:
There's a young lady just moved in and this guy is passing by. The lady asked him to help carry her things. The guy removed his cap, and the lady was surprised (she knows that this guy is a famous actor). When they're having coffee break, the guy asked her, "Do you know me?". The lady replied, "I don't know you." The guy was so happy, for the first time no one knows him and he could express himself freely. (I don't know if I translated it correctly, it's in Mandarin :)

I'm feeling good! At least now, I don't have much stress in studying and teaching (not yet) + a little bit of capturing and cooking if ever I have the chance.

 On my mind, I started making collage about everyday life in Taipei. By the way, Taiwan is now 100 years and it would be nice to see and witness some of the activities this upcoming Chinese New Year. Hoping to visit hundred places in Taipei this year :)

Hi, Lani, I like your quote. For some reason it reminds me of James' be quick to listen, slow to speak. Very wise words. :)

What a neat idea the collage is. And I hope you post pictures of 100 places; that would be great to see!

Blessings,
Christine
