The invasion of the “barbarians” is gone.
For thousands of years, the Great Wall stands as a witness to past battles.
It stands there to remind the world of the past events which will never be forgotten.
I rarely talked about my family in my blog.
But on 11th Thursday my mom will be operated to have her malignant tumor in her colon removed.
To have a surgery at her old age is not very common and the complications it may attract are just worrying.
I hope she is just like the green bamboo in this photo, evergreen and have a lot of will to survive.
She has sacrificed and so much for us when we were young. May the good Lord bless her and listen to our prayers.
PS Photo supplied by my classmate YM Chan to whom credit is due.
I have been showing pairs of photo for places taken at night and in the day.
These include photos of Hong Kong, Seoul etc.
Here, the night picture of the picturesque city was taken by my university classmate YM Chan,
As you can see in both pictures, there is a pagoda on the left bank , a river in the middle and traditional houses built on the right bank.
In fact, the place suffered a lot of damage during the Summer flooding this year.
Autumn is still here.
Hope that Winter is coming late this year.
So, celebrate Autumn as it is retreating and hope that Winter will be short.
The picture was taken at Hunglouzhi (Temple) in Beijing two years ago.
