The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

"When Red Is Black"

Just completed the reading of another book - "WHEN RED IS BLACK" by Qiu Xiaolong

Set in contemporary Shanghai - the murder of Yin is investigated by Sergeant Yu with the help of our hero Inspector Chen Cao.

The details of life in China and the events of the Cultural Revolution are really interesting - ( the cultural differences from the West are so wide ! ) but I found this book rather slow with its storyline. 

Shall not be reading anymore from that series .. sorry

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
