Babel!

I was taking a bus home when two passengers boarded. Then they began to talk with each other.  At first, I didn’t pay much attention to their conversation at all. Their words and voices just like something that completely out of my world. Or just like you are listening to some music while you are lost in your deep reflection, so you don’t remember what you have listened.  I kind of like  this feeling, to me, it’s more like a meditation.

Then suddenly, my conscious mind weighed in and started to analyze what they were talking about.  Oh dear! I could not understand a single word! “Are they foreigners? ” this splashed through my mind.

Wake up and smell the coffee

I am writing this post with a heavy mind but I will try my best to sort all things out. Recently wife and I are always  quarreling with each other. Both of us can’t accept the other’s ideas and failed to listen to the other at the same time.  I know it is not a good phase and we have to change the situation.

I will have to sit another meaningless but rather important exam in some 20 days, in the meantime, I have to spare some time for my students who are attending access course.

Still, the preparation for the civilian servant exams will never end. It is time to wake up and smell the coffee. “Stop fooling around on the Internet or elsewhere.” I warn myself but I will take some time to write down my feelings for sure.

Shopping spree

Today, all my family members are gathering together to spend half a day on holiday shopping. Aha, Spring festival, the traditional Chinese new year is just around the corner, it seems that the whole nation is on the shopping spree. Everywhere, the crowd are splashing out a lot of money on goods . All kinds of fruits are  almost sold out. There are always  long queues at the butcher’s. If you can’t image that scene, just recall what happened when iPhone 4 was released. 🙂 yup , iPhone and iPad are selling like hot cakes and Steven Jobs are riding high. The same with  butchers and other vendors.  Maybe about a month ago, people around the nation were complaining about the soaring price. It seems that all of us have forgotten this pain and everyone has money to burn.
