  1. This is much much better gas dispensing than when I left, at that time in late 70's, we were buying gasoline mixed with kerosene in unpredictable colors by the bottle sold in black market!

  19. No, it's NhaTrang Beach. It's stormy that day. The group had no activity, so I sit by the seaside one of the cafe shop looked out people killing their time.
    Great time I had on that day. It's in November. NhaTrang was raining. Good to see Nhatrang in that weather. I say this only for myself because I live in South Australia, the weather is very dry and I always love to see it rains.
    But the local people in Nhatrang don't like the weather in wet.
    To me, I like to see the storm. It's incredible. True!

  21. 水陆草木之花,可爱者甚蕃。晋陶渊明独爱菊;自李唐来,世人盛爱牡丹;予独爱莲之出淤泥而不染,濯清涟而不妖,中通外直,不蔓不枝,香远益清,亭亭净植,可远观而不可亵玩焉。予谓菊,花之隐逸者也;牡丹,花之富贵者也;莲,花之君子者也。噫!菊之爱,陶后鲜有闻;莲之爱,同予者何人;牡丹之爱,宜乎众矣。
    [ —(宋)周敦颐]
