Sunday we had a reunion lunch at Weekday 9 restaurant.
Ping-ting and Evan moved to Shanghai 2 years ago. Jessie's family have lived in Su-Zhou for 10 years. Evan, Jessie, Richy and I all graduated from NCKU. It is interesting to see everyone married with kids after so many years. The kids enjoyed steering boats in the lake. We could see farm animals and flowers while boating.
It feels so good to meet friends from Taiwan. Spring has come. I hope our friends will have more time to get together. I am sure kids enjoy the time together.
Today Richy's cousin UT had a one-day visit to Su-Zhou. We showed him Gold Chicken Lake and Li-Gong-Ti Riverwalk. We ate lunch at Gold Chicken lake and had dinner at Li-Gong-Ti. Lunch was western food and tasted fine. Our dinner was typical Su-Zhou food in De-Yue-Lou (得月楼), one of the popular local restaurants, but the food did not fit my appetite as usual. In the morning, we took cousin UT to Winston's violin teacher's to pick one new violin. UT was very happy to find a new violin in this trip. We could feel that he enjoyed playing music a lot. He took lots of musical training in his childhood. At tea break, Richy, UT, and Winston played violin together in our house like having a family musical party. We also went to Su-Zhou Science and Art Museum for a walk. Richy and UT had a lot to catch up in this visit. UT liked Su-Zhou very much. He used to go to Shanghai on business sometimes. We look forward to his future visit soon.
Friday afternoon after school, Winston and one Demark kid played in-line-skate in the garden. The Demark kid did not speak English. They didn't communicate much but they had fun chasing each other. He even watched Winston for me. He skated around Winston and helped Winston when he fell. They skated all the way out of my sight. I was busy taking pictures of the flowers in the garden.
Saturday was a raining day in the morning but sun came out for 3 hours in the afternoon when Winston and I took a walk to the bank. We stopped for a while to watch willows, flower trees, and birds on the sidewalk of a waterway.
Last night was such a windy night. The wind howled like if our house would break down anytime. I had a dream that our house leaned to one side. And we all could not balance on the bed. How terrible! I almost cried in the dream becauseI don't want to keep the high debt without enough real estate.
