Happy Thanksgiving!

Maokong Sunset

Maokong Sunset

Here is a picture of the sunset at Maokong, Taipei. Thanks to my dear friend who took me there. It was an unforgettable moment… for many reasons.

For those landscape photographers who visit this blog and whose work I admire, I wish you were there taking this photo. For now, you just have to use this photo combining with your imagination. Lots of imagination, I guess. 😉

A taxi driver, believe it or not, suggested me to do some writing in Chinese. So I started a Chinese blog to practice Chinese, which I am not good at all at this time. For those of you who may be interested (anyone read Chinese?), you can find my Chinese blog here: hhwchen.wordpress.com

To be honest, I am not sure how well it will work since it does take much longer to write in Chinese than in English. I want to give it a try, that’s about it. Since I am pretty good in deleting blogs now, I don’t think I have a lot to worry about. (Right?)

This is the first Thanksgiving that my daughter (our chef!) is away from home. I don’t have a great expectation for food, but the wine will be good. 😉

I have a lot to catch up on your blogs, and I will.

Happy Thanksgiving!

      Good morning, Lignum. To my surprise, the food was pretty good 😉 I was more worry about missing the kid, but it turned out that letting go was not as hard as I thought.
      Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving too! I hesitated to comment on your “Just for Fun” because I want to think through before opening my mouth — I thought someone said that focusing is not important for street photographing. I like all of those photos. 😉

    I can barely write in English, much less another language, so I’m impressed over here. I think it’s a great idea – a challenge for your mind and spirit. Happy Thanksgiving a day late!

      Good morning, Sue. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
      Before coming to U.S., my Chinese was pretty good. I had published several essays in the newspaper when I was in high school. So losing that ability was kind of sad for me. I just hope I will have time to handle both blogs. 😉 Have a great day! Helen

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Helen..!!!

    What a beautiful shot of the sunset..!!! Great initiative to learn Chinese and write blogs in the language. I am also learning a new language at the moment – Spanish. And have written a small blog in Spanish. Do visit it. Thanks 🙂
