Frogs in a well - 坐井观天

http://designc7.com/journal/frogs-in-a-well/

Today my big brother Jeff sent me this page when we’re talking about the young Chinese people go abroad, he said: all young people in China should go abroad, at least for a short while. Otherwise, they’re like frogs in a well. I like it, haha. In Chinese, we called “a frogs in a well” as “坐井观天” or “井底之蛙”, below is the story:

坐井观天(zuò jǐng guān tiān)

As a frog sat at the bottom of a well, a little bird flew over and perched on the well’s edge. The frog asked the little bird, “Where did you fly here from?” The little bird replied, “I flew from far away. I flew through the sky for more than a hundred miles, and now I’m thirsty, so I came down to find a drink of water.” The frog said, “My friend, enough of your boasting! The sky is no larger than the mouth of this well, how could you have flown so far?” The little bird said, “You’ve got it wrong, the sky is boundless, it’s extremely big!” The frog laughed and said, “My friend, I sit in this well every day, and I need only to look up to see the sky. I cannot be mistaken.” The little bird also laughed, saying, “Friend, you are mistaken. If you don’t believe me, jump out of the well and take a look.”

Last friday I went to a friend’s wedding and was asked to take photos for the wedding, I had a great time there and took lots of nice photos :D Well they considered me as the photographer but I am really not, haha. Both of the bride and the groom are my friends, and even the bride was my classmate in the university and were roommates, we were very close.

OK, take a look at what I took:

Back home for Chinese New Year

http://designc7.com/journal/life/back-home-for-chinese-new-year/

Hey, friends, I am back in Xiamen right now, well, I was back in on Feb 7 actually, you know, I really didn’t want to get back so “tight” – I was enjoying the time with my family at my hometown, but I had to get back, the clients were “missing” me after they went work on Feb 3 or Feb 4. So I have been a little busy working on some projects, some were done, some are on-the-go :)

Most interesting thing we did at hometown: Of course it’s roasting something! You know that’s the first thing first to do every year we get home…
