Happy Chinese Rabbit Year 2011

It’s 2011! Time flies and another chinese new year is coming. It’s funny to talk to my Mum and she asked me whether we have few days off because chinese new year, then I explained to her that no any body is living in Chinese world except Chinese people. This year is rabbit year, and John was born in a rabbit year in 1975. Superstitiously, Rabbit and Dog (my year) is the good combination and wish everyone and us will live happily and healthily. Most importantly, Gong Xi Fa Cai – 大家恭喜发财!

The cover picture was sticker called Fu. It is symbolic meaning that you will have fortune and lucky in the new year. The sticker also contains 12 different animals cutting inside, which represents 12 different years. It’s very impressive hand craft.

Celebrated New Year Eve in London Eye

Miwa’s boyfriend Haruki flew from Japan to celebrate New Year Eve with us, so we decided to have New year dinner, then went to see the firework in London. We took Haruki to eat the amazing fresh-made Gourmet burger because he likes beef like I do.

We managed to find some seats in one of them in Soho, and surprisingly, all the restaurants were not full at all except some of them in the tourist places in Leicester Square. After the giant burgers and chips, we walked down to the pub near St James Park, ordered some champaign and desserts to get our mood started.

At 11 pm, we stood behind the House of the Parliament, and it was so cold about minus 3-4 degrees outside with a full moon. The firework was last 10 minutes, and it was magnificent and so colourful. News said that there were about 250,000 people witnessing the countdown and the firework. The funny things is after the firework, it was snowing for 5 minutes. What else you can get in a night! We had an extremely good time in New Year Eve. Goodbye 2009, another new year has come.

Happy New Year to all of you, and wish you and me will have a lot fortune and luck in 2010. Picture of firework is from Dailymail News.



烟花放了10分钟,伦敦的烟花实在不同,颜色五彩缤纷。报道说,当晚估计有25万人在这里看倒数和烟花。当晚晴空万理,也是满月。烟花结束后,最兴奋的是开始下雪。下了10分钟大大的雪,我们就各自回家了。告别2009年,走向美好的2010年。谢谢大家陪伴我度过这么多年。同时祝福大家都过个好年,祈祷2010年你我都运气连连,开心无限。 烟花照片是在dailynew网上载录下来。

Friends Celebrate Christmas


It was our last day in the first semester of the school and friends decided to celebrate in Spitafield Market in Liverpool Street last night. We went to the Latin Brazil Restaurant. The food was really good. We ordered some cocktails and had some laugh. We are glad that school was off and most friends are going to back their countries soon; so the dinner was also the celebration of the Christmas and New Year!

Christmas is coming – people are all busy preparing gifts and decorating their houses, and it feels like Chinese New Year! We will spend our Christmas with John’s family for a week, then we will back to London for new year 09. This year has been passing so quickly. Anyway, I am looking forward to experiencing my first Christmas in the UK. Here are some pictures with my friends

昨天同学说为了庆祝第一学期最后一天和提早庆祝圣诞,因为大多数的朋友都飞回家过圣诞!我们去了利物浦街吃饭,我很喜欢利物浦街的餐厅,就象香港的中环一样,时尚和充满活力。我们终于选了一个拉丁风情的餐厅,点了些鸡尾酒,小吃和正餐。我点了羊腿排,约翰点了拉丁鸡肉卷等。圣诞快到了,这段时间,大家都在忙于买礼物,装饰自己家,圣诞气氛很浓厚,就象我们的过年一样忙碌!我们会和约翰的家人一起过圣诞节,然后回伦敦过新年。还记得我姐和姐夫Marco 前年12月9号来广州,然后圣诞节在北京度过,现在又一年了。我们就放3个星期假,讨厌放假还要写论文。今年过得真快,一眨眼就过去了,很期待我的第一个英国的圣诞节。这是我和朋友一起吃饭的一些照片
