My elder daughter and son visited China for a couple of weeks and we took a trip to Fujian.
We left SZ on Monday afternoon and took the fast train to Xiamen, getting into our hotel on Zhong Shan Pedestrian Street at about 8pm. It seems that Xiamen eats early because we had trouble finding a good restaurant open at that time. We spent Tuesday wandering around that area and took a speedboat to Gulangyu Island. It was hot, sticky and very crowded. Not as interesting as I'd…Continue
So what do they know that I don't know? We have three bright, shiny, new signs outside my building telling us what to do in the event or an air raid. Who is going to attack Weipeng Gardens? Vietnamese? Japanese? Taiwanese? An American aircraft carrier moored in HK harbour?
I think I should be told. Anyone out there with information please let me know. SOON.…
I’ve just downloaded two photographs, each 8MB in size – totally unnecessary detail, as I’ll only look at them on my screen, so 1% of that would have been enough. The 16MB got me thinking back about 45 years to my time on the old CDC3300 mainframe I used in those days.
Before about 1970 all user files, however small, were on magnetic tape reels – about 25cm across and 2400 feet long. If your job required many files this meant the operators had to be mounting and dismounting tapes…Continue
The reception was held in a small restaurant next to the chapel, and I helped look after the groom’s parents – after all they fed me every day. The next picture shows some of the food, but the main point for me is that Lavender Bear – it’s a fake one bought in Shenzhen at about 5% of the cost of the real ones – I didn’t know there was any such thing as a real one when I bought it. People ate and drank the regulation champagne for an hour or so, then we had the cutting of the…Continue
I’d seen people playing on the metro, but I’d no idea what it was, till Jane’s Michael posted a WeChat Moment. Then I downloaded it and started to play. I gradually worked out what to do and was improving, then I showed it to my flatmate. She spent most of one night playing and got to 2048…Continue
I moved into my flat in Weipeng Gardens in late March 2004. We only took a six month lease so, despite the awful condition of the furniture, the landlord would not change it. Ten years later, after many lease renewals, it’s still the same mess. My place looks lived in.
I like the building – everything works. It was built by the Nuclear Power Company and seems to have been designed to withstand a near miss. I like the neighbourhood – very Chinese. Great transport links - both the…Continue
