 One shot diary:

  • I decided to write this diary featuring my life.
  • Kyle Law’s parents has come and told me that their son has gone to the States (architectonic master, Washington University). Kyle’s got 2240 in GRE and 590 in TOEFL. Huh! I believe I can do it better than you, jackass!
  • A “skin-care” edit by Photoshop to the photo about Tingting and I in Hangzhou on April 3rd. Ummmmmm…awesome Adobe Photoshop.
  • A 4km long walk to Carrefour with mummy last night.
  • The awful movie <Elektra> should be awarded the Golden Raspberry.
  • I feel that my daddy is a kid and my mummy is an excellent rapper.



Dragon Boat Festival


The Dragon Boat Festival is a significant holiday (and the one with the longest history) celebrated in China, occurring on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. The festival commemorates the death of a popular Chinese national hero, Qu Yuan, who drowned himself in the Miluo River over 2,000 years ago to protest against the corrupt rulers. Legend says that as people attempted to rescue him, they beat drums to scare fish away and threw dumplings into the sea to keep the fish from eating Qu’s body.


Unfortunately, the traditional customs and rituals of the occasion, which originated in China, have been better preserved in Korea, that planned to apply to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to list its version of the Dragon Boat Festival as an important example of intangible culture.


The real highlight of the festival is the fierce dragon boats racing in a lively and vibrant spectacle. Teams race the elaborately decorated dragon boats, whose heads are shaped like open-mouthed dragons, while the sterns end with a scaly tail, to the beat of heavy drums. A drummer and flag-catcher stand at the front of the boat. Before a dragon boat enters competition, it must be "brought to life" by painting the eyes in a sacred ceremony. Races can have any number of boats competing, with the winner being the first team to grab a flag at the end of the course. Annual races take place all over China (including Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan), and other overseas Chinese communities.


Zongzi, the traditional food for the festival, is a glutinous rice ball, with a filling, wrapped in corn leaves. The fillings can be egg, beans, dates, fruits, sweet potato, walnuts, mushrooms, meat, or a combination of them. They are generally steamed.


The celebration is also a time for protection from evil and disease for the rest of the year. At the beginning of summer, when diseases are likely to strike, people fend off evil spirits by wearing talisman, hanging healthy herbs on the front door, drinking nutritious concoctions, and displaying portraits of evil’s nemesis, Zhong Kui, on the door of their homes. If one manages to stand an egg on its end at exactly 12:00 noon, the following year will be a lucky one.
