Museum and Cultural Tour of Bulgaria in 9 Days - Day 1 (More)

Posted on: Sat, 09/21/2013 - 19:22 By: yunyao

We were quite amazed by the National Archaeological Museum, especially the Thracian treasures. 

The museum is located in the largest and oldest former Ottoman Mosque in Sofia.

Thracian treasures. Can you believe that they were made before the Roman Empire?

三藩Wipro首马报告 --- My First Marathon (San Francisco Wipro Marathon 06/17/2013)

Posted on: Sat, 07/27/2013 - 02:40 By: yunyao

[前序]
我的同事中有不少人跑马的,他们也曾经鼓动我参加跑步运动,但是我一直觉得跑步很
无聊,跑马就更加不可想象了。但是今年一月底的时候,在LG的鼓动下,我们两个一年
跑过的距离加起来也不超过全马的的人居然报了六月三藩的全马。我的跑马的同事们都
说我们很疯狂。我其实报着舍命陪君子的态度,主要目的是让LG多多锻炼。

从二月开始,我们参加了为期16周的Run365的训练计划,同时也开始到跑版来潜水,仰
望各位牛人。我们工作都比较忙,除了一周勉强能参加两三次group run之外,基本没
有时间自己训练。中间度假和出差还错过了不少训练。不过感觉自己进步还是不小,从
一开始只能跑两三迈到后来跑十几迈也没问题。

[比赛前]
时间过得很快,一转眼六月份就到了。周六睡了一个大懒觉,吃过了午饭后开车到了三
藩,在旅馆check in之后走路到Hyatt (本次比赛的host hotel)坐shuttle去expo拿bib
和sweat bag。等到回到旅馆已到了吃晚饭的时候。 我和LG继续carbon-loading,各吃
了一大盘pasta。因为第二天一大早四点就要起床,把第二天比赛时需要穿的衣服都整
理好之后, 随便洗漱一番早早睡下 (我们本来报名的时候是Wave 4, 在Expo改到了Wave
3。出发时间是5:42am。不过其实从Run365的tent我们是可以随时加入任意一个Wave的
。)。

Are you Han? My paternal ancestry - Hypothesis

Posted on: Wed, 12/28/2011 - 07:02 By: Huahai

I was brought up as a Han Chinese and I myself have never doubted that identity.  However, I do know that I look slightly different from people around me when I grew up. Darker skin, slightly curly hairs, deeper set eyes and other distinctive facial features. Put it simply, my face does not look like an average Han male face. However, nobody really said anything about my appearance except that my old brother occasionally joked about it (he looks like a normal Han Chinese by the way). After all, I look just like my father.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Posted on: Sat, 12/06/2008 - 18:02 By: yunyao

I have been waiting to try the Tofurkey for a few weeks ever since I saw the ad from Trader Joe about it. So I finally tried out on Thanksgiving.

This is what Tofurkey looks like out of the box. Then I cooked it in the oven. It tastes better than I expected, but a little too much for two people.

Finally, after our trip to China this year, we got our wedding gifts from Huahai's parents --- a special Olympic umbrella. Tongue out

Wow, a scenic flight certificate, what a lovely gift! Thank you, babe.

Earth Quake

At 8:03pm, the kittens were feed with their main course (dry food) and dessert (can food and egg). I just finished cooking my own dinner, put the serving tray with my dinner to the coffee table, and was about to enjoy my meal while chatting with Huahai on my cell. It just seem to be a normal weekday night for me these days. Before I took the first bite, however, I heard some huge noise and everything inside the apartment started shaking violently along the building itself. The kittens who were wondering around me startled and quickly ran away.
