Yangcheng Lake, located at the northwest of Suzhou City, is well-known for its crab which has the fame as “The king of the carbs”. I wento to Yangchenghu Peninsula yesterday. It looks like a piece of shiny jade in the sun. And surprisingly, it has a wide grassland for fun. We enjoyed the natural scenery and participate in some sports there.
Hi Steemit Friends, this is my entry for ColorChallenge initiated by @kalemandra. The color for Saturday is Indigo. Here’s the detail for ColorChallenge. I like to share my life experience through different pictures.
I am getting over a terrible cold and now trying to recover myself. I totally understand if my lack of enthusiasm on posting or overall communication has driven you away. But hey, everyone has the moment when they don’t want to write down anything.

After a heavy rain last week, the weather is getting colder. Now it is reported that there would be a snow here in Suzhou. These photos are taken at Shangfangshan National Forest Park. It is holding a “flower festival” and the entire place is covered with cherry blossom trees and tulips in every color imaginable. I walked with Ethan in the forest park, and took the pictures below. Everything seems to be prettier and everyone seems to be a little happier in the flower bloom.

I was fortunate to have an outstanding dinner at Hutaoli bar. When I first entered there, I thought it was quite small and quite bar with a few high tables in the bar area. However, when I sat around the table next to the window, I found it was a romantic place decorated carefully in both retro and modern styles. It was raining a little which made the view even more special. Anyway, the food there was pretty good. The staff was very friendly and pleasant.In the night, it feels so good to sit at the bar and listen to the music.
最近我在追剧《恋爱先生》，因为超喜欢雅痞胡八一，所以一直追颜值爆表的男神，他们在剧里最佳的约会圣地就是胡桃的里面，木质的优雅 – 胡桃里。这家的音乐似乎很懂我，或者是因为大家都爱阿黛尔，静静在坐在大厅里，听着阿黛尔，心里犹如蜜糖一般美滋滋，坐在这里时间似乎比外面慢一拍，在这里文艺的气息里刚刚好。
墙面跟立柱上贴满了各类文青最爱的海报，凌乱却不繁杂，装修充满小心思，复古情怀藏在每个角落，酒瓶形状的吊灯，绿色植物灯饰、各种小摆件、不断的给这家的品味加分，也让我的镜头一直停不下来。 Continue Reading

This photo was taken at the way to Suzhou Center besides the Jinji Lake. This photo becomes a little fuzzy as the car is moving really fast. I choose the un-finished skyscraper as the background and the fast-moving cars as the front scene. From this photo, I want to show the busy life for the new citizens at the fast growing Suzhou city.
这张照片拍摄的是现在最最最繁华的苏州中心未竣工的时候，坐落在美丽的金鸡湖边。这张照片中汽车有点点糊，背景是为竣工的苏州中心，马路上是疾驰的汽车，我想用这张照片凸显出新苏州人建设新苏州的忙碌。 Continue Reading
Remembering my last visit to Changzhou Tianning Temple this summer in #fridayblue on #colorchallenge contest.
This sky blue temple picture is taken with my Nikon D7000 camera. I found peace when standing at the foot of the temple especially that day the whether is quite good. After I took this picture, an old man said to me that it is not polite to take the pictures of the temple and Buddha. Something bad will happen when people are taking photos with the Buddha. I am scared by his words. I just enjoy taking pictures as my hobby. The whole temple looks amazing under the azure sky. So I took out my camera and captured the moment. Then I never show this picture to others.

Remembering my last visit to Nantong Wolf Mountain this summer in #mondayred on #colorchallenge contest. The Wolf Mountain is in south area of Nantong, where I was born and raised. I really admire the historic temples at the top of the mountain. And it is one of the famous eight little Buddhist Mountains.
I captured an old man climbing to the top on steep stairs holding a red plastic bag with a walking stick. That is why I named the series as “Sincerity can work Wonders”. Many young people including me choose a cable car ride, rather than hiking to the top. But this old man is trying hard to climb the stairs with his walking stick. In the red plastic bag, there are joss sticks and candles. He may be climb to the temple of the top to pray for his son or wife. It means best wishes to his family and friends.
Can you believe that it is Christmas Eve now, and it has only a couple days away from New Year. It is early winter here in Yangzhou where the whether is much warmer than Suzhou. Sad to say, the winter here has no snow here all this weekend. The leaves are green as spring is here. Right now we don’t have any snow here, and I am not complaining at all. I still enjoy the sunshine in the winter. And I wish you Merry Christmas! I hope you have a great day surrounded by the people you love the most and you have an amazing start of 2018.

Life is so short, hurry to see everything wonderful and everywhere beautiful. After 5-day really hard and boring work from Monday to Friday, I want to run away somewhere I can rest at ease. The weather is warm under the sunshine this December. It is a good chance to have fun outdoor.
My son is too young to go on long journey. The best way to travel with him is to find a place in a great mountain, and have some rest there. It is believed that traveling to Yangzhou in March is enjoyable experience. My friend invites me to Qingpu in Yangzhou. I love this hotel built besides Shouxi Lake. It is a great place for families and lovers. Have you been to Yangzhou? Look at my photos from above, it feels great when having a cup of tea under the sunshine.
The story of Yangzhou will continue. Don’t forget to have a visit.
进入客房，迎面的茶几上，有细心的工作人员给我们准备的红枣银耳羹和小点心，附着一张字条。似乎现在的酒店都流行手写字条，为了让客户有宾至如归的感觉吧？这家值得夸的是，这字体是我见过最好看的一次了，也没有很矫情的写英文。不过，你们至于给我冠夫姓么？ Continue Reading
