Home Sweet Home

I was about to leave the hotel last Friday, I discovered this beautiful moment…

The bird mother was feeding her babies in their nest.  Isn’t it sweet?

Family…

Would love to share with you the picture of the cat family used to stay in our garage…  Two cat mothers carried seven kittens.  We adopted three kittens and gave the other four to two other families.

Cat Family

Now the kittens are almost four years old… living happily in our home.  They are key members of our family…:)

Dolphin

Dolphin is one of the cleverest mammals in the world…  The brain of a dolphin is #2 is terms of size compared to its body size. It is only behind the human.  That might be one of the reasons why most ocean parks in the world have dolphin shows.

I’ve never seen dolphins in the ocean, but I did watch their shows in many cities…

This photo was taken in the Ocean Park two years ago in Hong Kong… The team just finished their performance waving good-bye to the audiences.  Aren’t they smart?

Well, we will say good-bye to 2016 in two more days…  I would like to wish everyone of you a very Happy New Year!

Christmas…

Joy to the world, the Lord is come…

To most people in Hong Kong, Christmas is time for shopping, reunion, and travelling…

Dog

I’m a cat lover and we have six cats in our place.  I love dogs too however I cannot get permission from our cats… 😦

Well, these are my dog friends…  They are all lovely, aren’t they?

Distortion

Many governments in the world today do not really listen to the voice of their people… And newspapers and social media might distort the true picture…

That might be one of the reasons why we have Brexit, Trump’s victory and now the Italian poll outcome in 2016!

In our city Hong Kong, we have the same issue…  The two photos are coming from the two extremes…

God bless Hong Kong… God bless our world…  Amen!

 

Nepal – a Colorful Country

Last month, I visited Nepal for just eight days…  This mountain country impressed me a lot…   Even though the country is not rich comparing to the modern developed world, I’ve found the people there are very positive and cheerful.  The earthquake last year hit them hard, the rebuild process is still ongoing, yet there are smiles on people’s faces.

No matter they are young or old, rich or poor, they wear cheerful colors.  It’s a colorful country…:)

This might be because of their religion…  In Nepal, 70% of the people are Hindu and the rest are mainly in Tibetan Buddhism.  People worship early in the morning before dawn and you can find places for people to pray and worship everywhere on the street.

May God bless the people in Nepal…  Always happy, always cheerful, always colorful!

Crane

This week’s challenge is crane…  The only time I had close contact with crane was last year in Hokkaido.  We went to a red-crowned crane farm.  Unfortunately it’s not winter time and I didn’t have a chance to watch them dancing…

One Word Photo Challenge: Craft

Have a chance to visit Nepal last week…  I’m impressed by the wood decoration on their buildings…  Unfortunately, many of them were destroyed by the earthquake last year.

Following is the beautiful wood windows found in Bhaktapur, an old city built in the 8th century.

Another photo is taken in The Architecture Galleries in Patan… Are they pretty?  Hope you like them too…:)
