Hong Kong, China - 28th February 2010

By: vivyanhui

Today is Yuan Xiao Festival, the 15th day of the lunar month,
which is known as the chinese valentines' day,
beautiful lanterns are made to celebrate this.

I went to the open space next to the Cultural Centre,
there's a huge lantern setup there. B)

The whole setting is actually a festive scene:
children are busy sending golds, good-meaning flowers for the celebration,
and different kinds of lucky animals are welcome to enjoy this festival.
And all characters joined and became a parade.

Finally I took a ride on the Star Ferry~ :cyclops:

Nice weather with soft wind, what a good time!

The first choice to choose for crossing the Victoria Harbour~
well, it's absolutely better than just pass through the tunnel by bus!

A short walk in Central & mid-levels,
funny shops and tall commercial buildings,
can't imagine there's old tree next to the busy traffic road... :o
I also sae an unique transportation that can only be found in Hong Kong Island,
that's tram! It's has no air-conditioner and in slow speed,
but it's the only transport that uses electricity.

Hong Kong, China - 10th March 2010

By: vivyanhui

Today is museum day!
There's free admission for some museums every Wednesday,
I chose to visit the Hong Kong Museum of History.
It locates in the Tsim Sha Tsui East, having a high accessibility.
There's a regular exhibition called "The Hong Kong Story",
which shows the changes, local customs and some key milestones of Hong Kong. :)

here's some stuffs really special:

1. the grey block
- shrimp paste, made in a block shape in the past,
but usually in bottle nowadays

2. salty fish
- preserved in a natural way, very tasty whan cooked with pork! :p

3. bowl meal
- different kinds of food like seafood, meat, vegetables so on are put together and display nicely,
the traditional one can only be found in some old villages,
it's is a seasonal dish, a must-have item during Lunar New Year

4. worshipping
- chickens and fruits are set neatly on the red table for worshipping,
different people will have different gods, usually pray for good fortune in the coming year

5. children's reading in the past
- small size that fits children, mostly are comics in chinese style drawings.

Hong Kong, China - 12th March 2010

By: vivyanhui

There a lot of magazines here,
with different topics, for men, women, children and teens,
some are for professionals and some are just for entertainment.

The magazine I watched today is East Weekly,  ;)
like the newspaper, magazines are more photo-based,
and of course, lots of advertisement.

In a magazine, there are fixed catagory like local news,
food, fashion & beauty and travels.
Every issue will keep you up-to-date.

I also found the Hong Kong's flag in the magazine! :cyclops:

Knowing that I love to read newspaper,
Vi shows me the East Weekly few days ago,
and today she shows me some free magazines! Wow! :rolleyes:
These free magazines are usually a bi-weekly one or monthly one.

I learn new chinese words today too~

The blue word means "blue", and sounds in "nam",
"blue colour" sounds in "nam sik";
it is also one of the surnames of Chinese, though an uncommon one.

The yellow words means "yellow", sounds in "wong",
"yellow colour" sounds in "wong sik";
again it's one of the surnames of Chinese, but a very common one.

Besides yellow and blue, "white" is another colour also used as surname too! :o

Ubatuba, Brasil - 25th April 2010

By: Capeli

Hello mom,
we are travelling this week, we come back to Santos in this afternoon, we had great time here in UBATUBA.
UBATUBA is a city in the northern coastal side of São Paulo. Really interesting city!!!
Mom, Camila tought me how to say Honey in Portuguese, I just can't remember in how many lenguages I learned it!! So if I completed this life mission, please, let Camila know ok???
HONEY = MEL

I will post some pictures of our visit to PROJETO TAMAR (TAMAR PROJECT), I even found a cute video that show the project in Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T26tf8uTFZ0
But first, I will explain what is the project.

"The Projeto Tamar field of action is the Brazilian coastline and its Oceanic islands, and its main aim is to work for the protection and preservation of sea turtles. Brazil is home to five out seven species of sea turtles, all of them endangered species. From September to March, along the coast, and January to June, on the islands, the organization monitors the beaches where the turtles lay their eggs. Tamar estimates each year 14.000 nests and 650.000 baby turtles." Brazil Travel Blog

There goes the pictures...

Istanbul, Turkey - 21st July 2010

By: bruehwuerfelchen

Hello Mommy,
I am sorry for not writing such a long time.
I will add the photos from Germany later.
I promise.
Today we said Good bye to Claire and Ulrik.
Claire will go to Chile and Ulrik to the USA.
We took some photos when we said good bye to them.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4138/4814820288_af3e71f4de.jpg

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4079/4814198833_340f59d333.jpg

I wanted to go to Chile too but the others seemed to have the same idea.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4074/4814822964_c06b01e449.jpg

But I almost made it into the envelope...
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4139/4814212865_cfc93dc9e9.jpg
...but Claire kicked me out. :(
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4141/4814279553_7291c8d627.jpg


We went to send Claire and Ulrik off.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4098/4814202943_4bc48600ae.jpg

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4079/4814283761_3f876713ee.jpg

We passed the shopping centre of the 3. part of Ataköy.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4138/4814290461_681dc0b4ea.jpg

Then we finally arrived the post office.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4100/4814204789_d0dfd78a0b.jpg

But there was a new worker, who told us that she wasn't able to send Claire and Ulrik and that we should go to the post office in Bakirköy.
We will go there tomorrow.

So, went home again.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4081/4814206145_8b988a6b4d.jpg


We will take some photos in Bakirköy tomorrow.
See you,
Yours,
Pinky
