Happy Farmhouse 太湖边,漫山岛的农家乐

I went to see the 漫山岛 to have a dinner beside the beautiful Taihu Lake last weekend. It was by far the best restaurant I visited in 2018. If you ever have the chance to visit Suzhou, I highly recommend this place. All the dishes are so fresh and delicious, though they may not look that good on photos. Now I prefer to eat at the farmhouse. All the restaurants in the city is so boring. Their dishes look so good on photos, but all these taste the same to me. I am in love with the fresh cooking style in the countryside.

上周末我去看漫山岛吃农家乐,坐落于美丽的太湖边。这是迄今为止我在2018年访问过的最好的餐厅。如果你有机会参观苏州,我强烈推荐这个地方。所有的菜都非常新鲜和美味,虽然他们在照片上看起来不太好。现在我更喜欢在农家吃饭。感觉城市里所以的彩色都很单调。他们的菜肴在照片上看起来不错,但所有这些对我来说味道都一样。我更偏爱农家菜新鲜的烹饪风格。

When this dish is brought on our table, the shrimps are still alive and kicking. It tastes good.

虾子上桌的时候是活蹦乱跳的,看得超级有食欲。

“一入吃鸡深似海,从此农药是路人”——观《头号玩家》有感

荧幕的神奇在于,当你凝视之时,会来到一个全新的世界,试听感官之外,思我所思。

一条好的剧情线索和动人或唯美的画面,再或者震撼人心的场景音效都是一部影片的基本。一本好的影片,其实你认为它好,是要能带给你一些认同感。最起码,你懂得当中所渗透出来的意思,它在引导大众什么样的趋向——对事物的价值趋向。

所以,每个人都有特别喜欢的影片类型

憧憬高尚爱情的人,喜欢文艺影片或者轻喜剧;也有一些人崇尚纯粹和热血,那么他们可能会是战争片的粉丝;偶像时装片也有市场,因为很多人透过影片研习时尚。 Continue Reading

王道德儒
人性为善,循循诱之,天下大同。
仁爱人,而后有孝,孝为本,而立纲常。
父子君臣,成规矩方圆。
修身、齐家、治国再平天下,一脉而来。

霸道邢法
世人皆恶,防微杜渐,王孙亦然。
邢论典,重而严惩,刑连坐,无得漏网。
违法必惩,则普天皆畏。
严刑、峻法莫敢言,治乱安内。

儒以德治,行王仁道。望臣民感而恩之,君贤民朴,求世事之向荣。然,美也,虚无而缥缈,梦则幻。可得锦上而添花,而非乱世之良药。
故,儒不以为本,乃盛世催化工具尔。

刑法可平异己,防变。乱世重器,斩荆棘,除乱党,安社稷。但法过厉,内并未能安,或瞬息之势,非长久之计。
遂,峻法非长效,仅乱世平定之快剑矣。

诸子百家,各行其道。一味拘泥非能成正果,当效韩子王孙,集大成,感世之变化,方能成势,而为。

Enjoy Best Moment of Plum Blossom Scenery 梅海之约:乍暖还寒时,春意料峭中

乍暖还寒时,
春意料峭中,
相约十里梅林,
繁花如海荡漾,若雪满地;
层层叠叠,犹如风吹麦浪。

Hope everyone is doing great. Workdays are going by fast! Sometimes, I need to work overnight to get everything done. I try to relax on weekend. My parents came to Suzhou for a visit. I am so fortunate to live not too far away from my parents. We could get together every month to travel or have dinner. It is great to enjoy good food and good company with my parents. The weather at Suzhou is more spring-like this month.

首先祝大家工作日愉快。这周的工作日过得超快,我一直在通宵加班。周末必须放松一下。这周,苏州的天气更像春天,或者说春天已经来了。老爸老妈周末来了苏州看梅花。很幸运,老爸老妈住的地方离我不远,两小时的车程,我们可以经常一起周末周边游,有父母陪伴的周末时光,是我这周的一大乐事。

“A City A Story” photo weekly contest #22: Green COLOR 江南春光,最美人间四月天

Fair Southern shore with scenes I adore.
At sunrise riverside flowers redder than fire, In spring green waves grow as blue as sapphire.
Which I can’t but admire.

江南好,风景旧曾谙。
日出江花红胜火,春来江水绿如蓝。
能不忆江南?

Good morning lovelies! It is Spring here in Suzhou, and summer is in the corner. So happy to be back in Suzhou after spending a 3-day holiday in my hometown during the Qingming Festival. My holiday was full of love hat feeling of hope when we think about the days spent with the passed ones. Today I am showing my entry for “A City A Story” photo weekly contest #22 COLOR hosted by @aaronli. I planned this green theme photo series to show the beautiful spring time in our city.

早安,各位!现在的苏州是最美的春季,夏天即将到来。在清明节期间,在家乡度过3天的假期,Ethan他家缅怀亲人的仪式感很足,一家人有着共同的回忆,一起追忆亲人,回忆过去,很有爱。今天这篇文章写来参加@aaronli主办的“A City A Story”照片每周比赛#22 COLOR的作品。我计划这个绿色的主题照片系列,展现江南美丽的春天。

Small bridges and flowing waters , white walls and dark grey roof tiles match one another in tranquil elegance

苏州的街巷临河,小桥流水,粉墙黛瓦,简静雅洁。

When I saw the theme of this contest: COLOR, what comes to my mind is: wow, our city definitely has NO colors for its architecture, ONLY white wall and black tiles. Yes, our city looks like a painting of ink and wash. Old street and deep lane, Water bridge, sheltered in the rain, like the watch of missing 1,000 years.

看到这一期的主题是色彩的时候,我第一反应的是“MD,我们大苏州的建筑没有色彩!”为了保持古城的风貌,苏州政府会统一建筑色彩,都是粉墙黛瓦。记得平江路一家潮店很时尚的翻新成了红色的墙面,我去拍照的时候发现,一片粉墙黛瓦中,一面复古的砖红色,好看的紧。可惜第二天就被勒令整改,给刷白回来。我们大苏州必须是那道白月光,隐在烟雨迷蒙中,恍若千年一叹的守望。
