Travel to Bali: Half Day at Tanah Lot 滴~打卡海神庙~



I went to Pura Tanah Lot, an ancient Hindu temple last week, and was blown away by the natural beauty of this spectacular landscape. In the fifteenth century, The legend says there lives the gods of the sea. And now it remains a site of religious significance to Balinese people.


When I arrive there during low-tide, the temple looks “floating” at the sea. And the tourists could walk down on the beach and view this mysterious temple from a different perspective. Tanah Lot during sunset is just remarkable, but it is so crowded that I just stand far way from them when taking photos. Continue Reading

一叶知春 Pretty Pictures of Flowers that Bloom in Late Winter and Early Spring



Ten years can see the changes of four seasons,
One hundred years can see the birth, old, illness and death of one’s life,
The millennium year can see the prosperity and defeat of a dynasty,
Ten thousand years can see the whole world moving around from A to Z.

If mortals use the vision of a day to snoop into the world for millions of years, it is like a frog in the bottom of the well.


Yesterday I watched “The Skywalking Nine Songs”. I watched this part over and over again. When Han Feizi faced the questions from the eternal king of his era, he uttered the truth of life. “Knowing the Spring and Autumn, Divining the Ancient, Seeing the Present, Observing Birth and Death”. I was attracted by his great thoughts.





When I was taking photos of the green leaves at the tree branches, the soft wind was whipping my cheeks. I realized that Spring has arrived, though the weather is still quite cold in Suzhou. I think Spring is the most beautiful season here.

Warm Up with Chinese Hot Pot 金科大酒店火锅厅

Time is flying by and it feels unreal that I am celebrating the 5th Chinese New Year with Ethan. It is amazing to know that I have get married for about 6 years. I have learned a lot from my husband, and my love to him grows every day. He knows me so well that he could always make me laugh, and comfort me when I was crying in tough times. The most important thing is make me feel beautiful and confident everyday. I feel fully protected by MY husband. And everything will become easier with him.


This year, we started our Date Night last Wednesday as it is the last day of Spring Festival holiday. Ethan decided to take me somewhere new and try out a new restaurant. And he bought me a new bag as a present for New Year. The bag is beautiful and the date night is romantic.

上周三是春节假期的最后一天, Ethan载我去新的地方尝试新餐厅。惊喜的是,他给我买了一个包包作为新年礼物。包包很漂亮,约会的夜晚也很浪漫。


BEST part is that we didn’t bring our son with us. It is SO NICE to enjoy his full attention. I think that is a good idea to keep this date without my son going! Do any of you do that?? I like to bring my son everywhere I go, but every couple needs some time to breathe.


If you love someone, you must accept every thing about him, including his favorite food. His favorite food is hotpot. I would be love to share our date night food pictures here.



We ordered a full shelf of food

Images of the Snow-covered Landscape in Zhuozheng Yuan 姑苏雪痕,犹如梦境 | SteemitPhotoChallenge Entry

北国早已飘过不知多少场雪后,苏城迎来了属于自己的第一场雪,雪姑娘扬扬洒洒地飘了三天三夜。周日一大早,迫不及待的打开窗户,看到窗外熟悉的风景一片白茫茫,再看看发现自己的车车又被埋了,心情无比雀跃,穿起雪地靴,相约 @herlife 一起飞奔去园林,生怕明天一场冬雨,雪就会融化了。

Luckily, we had a great amount of snow last weekend. As far back as I can remember, there is no heavy snow in recent five years. It is so nice to see the snow from my window this morning. I drove to the Humble Administrator’s Garden (or zhuozheng yuan), one of the four great gardens in China, to see the snow-covered landscape. So, I have chance to take pretty photos of snow and share them with you here.


I dreamed to live and work in northern cities, where would be covered by thick snow in the winter. That would be a total different lifestyle compared to life in watery towns of Southern China. Now when I stand there to all the trees covered with white snow, my dream has come true, and all these memories when I was a little girl come to life again. I have countless memories of running in all the gardens. And this time, I am glad that I can take Ivan here showing him old memories, and of course, making new ones.




This is my entry for 📷 Steemit Photo Challenge organised by @jamtaylor. For those who are not familiar with it, please read the details here. We are suggested to submit no more than 3 entries. That is why I put three images in this post.

这三张图用来提交 @jamtaylor 组织的摄影比赛 #steemitphotochallenge,想参加的可以点击这里,每人可以提交至多三张照片。 Continue Reading

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




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.



My mum and son. I really enjoy taking photos for them.



I used to get back to my hometown to visit my parents every month. Since I had my little son, life is getting busy. I have probably the busiest life EVER right now, and we don’t have time to visit them every month. Instead, my parents drove to Suzhou and spent time with me.

Images of Two Doves Twittering in Love 交颈呢喃的鸽子


Hello Steemians, it is #thursdaygreen time for #colorchallenge. This photo was taken when I was climbing a hill in my hometown. Skiing, sledding, snowshoeing are all my dream outdoor activities during the winter season. Winter has already come to Suzhou, but there is no snow, just cold. Everyone is sharing snow photos today. I am so envy. I am dreaming to see some snowflake in winter.

今天整个江苏都在对着苏州下雪,苏州昨天发布橙色暴雪气象警报,然而只有淅沥沥的小雨,,似乎嗅到了一丝黄梅天的气息,也是real尴尬。@sunnyjolly 今天写得这篇风里雪里等你里说约他的老公在雪地里走着走着,就一起白了头;而我只能在江南的烟雨中,走着走着,脑袋进了水。


All trees are green, animals are alive here in winter. Hope you would like this photo of two doves. If feel like in love when I captured this photo successfully. It will bring me good luck, and you will find the true love after seeing this photo.

吃货眼中的乌镇人气小吃 Top 6 Must-Eat Foods in Wuzhen Water Town

继上一篇枕水江南 #来过 便不曾离开#,今天分享一下乌镇的吃货版攻略,作为一个资深吃货,除了体验岁月静好,穿越缓慢时光,旅行最大的意义在于一家家踩点当地美食。在水上集市沿线随处都是乌镇小吃,定胜糕,乌米饭,乌镇羊肉,酱鸭,粽包肉,因为乌镇去过多次, 几乎每一家都拔草结束,来推荐几家我“心尖上的小吃”。




跟我们这里的羊肉差别是里面放了甘蔗头,红枣茴香,桂皮,老板说烧羊肉不盖锅,所以没有腥味跟膻味。不过我爸妈不爱吃,他们觉得酱料的味道太冲,掩盖了羊肉的香味。我倒是觉得还不错,所以这盘招牌菜,基本上只有我吃。 Continue Reading

Images of the Grassland at Yangchenghu Peninsula 阳澄湖半岛冬游

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.

大家好,这是我参加色彩挑战的帖子,今天的颜色主题是#SaturdayIndigo 靛青色。应该是气温骤降的原因,我得了重感冒,一直在咳嗽,咳得我若隐若现的头痛,除了忙忙碌碌的工作,什么都不想做。


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.
