Match Point January 14, 2006

Woody Allan’s grey humor was well represented in this film. I thought the falling ring brings the main character bad luck but I was wrong. The ending was quite suprising – probably because I am so used to justice and fairness in the end of every film. I like the films that I

“With a little luck, you win. Without it, you lose.” The theme of “luck” is throughout the whole film. But I like another line better “it might not be love. It is probably lust. Sometimes we just can’t tell the difference between them.” Yes, for most of us, sometimes lust is more exciting and passionate. But it is not love and not worthy of losing some important things for it. Therefore, when we are facing lust directly, it is better that we think about the results – is it worthy of losing something for the lust? I told J. to use his head to think about it. He said “well, it is true that I have a head. But it is also true that I have a penis.” Sometimes men are not as rationalized as they think they are.

It has been a year after it was first created. It is only a test but it should be good and helps me save money.

Trial at blogger will help me to know more.

Actually each person only has very limited energy to understand about the world. That is probably why there is a word “expertise.” 😛

A Good Mood Today January 13, 2006

这两天天气晴朗,在bay area真的是很难得。看着蓝蓝的天,白白的云,阳光明媚,空气清新,心情就很好。虽然气温还是不高,但是冬日的阳光还是让人很精神抖擞。 我努力地看着太阳,发现他一点也不象南加州的太阳刺眼,可能这边还是水气大,所以太阳还是很温柔吧。

坐在公车上,我很仔细地打量着这个城市。以前每天都是很忙碌地经过相同的路线,每次都没有时间或精力细细地观察它。今天或者是心情好,又或者是阳光好,街道和两边的建筑都很干净整洁,看上去很舒服很赏心悦目。这次还发现很多公寓居然可以看见室内的摆设,看着别人或温馨或简洁的室内布置,心里也暖和和的。

下车走在一点都不拥挤的街道上,有支可爱的小狗跑过来闻闻我,好cute,好好玩,心情更加好!看着玻璃窗里自己的影子,头发乱乱的(因为昨天晚上刚洗头),穿得很随便,踢着我的运动鞋(因为星期五上班可以很随便),就像一个学生,于是便觉得自己还很年轻,活力好像很充沛!嗬嗬,说得自己差点象个自恋狂。

希望每天心情都好!

這次回國有個小小的遺憾,就是沒有機會看到雪狼湖。其寔並不一定很好看,只是一向的心願而已。

另外的就是沒有多吃魚和沒有吃到豬肚湯。還有就是geye買少了。

YEAH! Many dance company performances! At first I thought SF won’t be an art/entertainment center like LA. But I might be wrong! There are several performance centers that have a lot of good shows and performances:

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA)
http://www.ybca.org/b_ybca.html
Very close to where I work in downtown SF.

San Francisco Performances
http://www.performances.org/index.asp
http://www.performances.org/season26.asp
They organize good shows and productions and some of them perform in YBCA. I subscribed to the Dance Series and will update the show’s information. The first time being a subscriber, I feel happy for the seat is pretty good.

Stanford Lively Arts
http://livelyarts.stanford.edu/index.php
They have good performances too!

Here is the address for the Chinese restaurant.

Szechuan Taste (Cherng Gong, in chinese)

917 Taraval Street
San Francisco
415-681-8383

Order the $28 package (good for 3)

Shrimp
Sweet and Sour Pork
Fried Fish (long lay)
Vegetables

or the $48 package (they say good for 8, but easily feeds 10.)

You can just use mapquest for the directions. Not a fancy place, but very good cheap food and fresh seafood.

Admerasia http://www.admerasia.com/ (based in NY) I think they have a strong media planning team. They didn’t show their creative work on the website, so not sure about that.

Kang & Lee http://www.kanglee.com/ (based in NY) According to the billing record, they are the largest one.

Ameredia http://www.ameredia.com (based in SF)

interTREND Communications http://www.intertrend.com/ (based in Long Beach) Toyota

PanCom International http://www.pancom.com/ (based in LA) looks like SBC, Ford and Volvo are their big clients.

Within walking distance. There are a handful of restaurants nearby. Chinese food? There is “Rice” on La Cienega, between Melrose and Santa Monica Boulevard on the eastside of La Cienega. There is Mandarette, a short cab ride from the hotel or about a 15-20 minute walk. That is on Beverly. There is also PF Chang’s in the Beverly Center.

There are better Japanese restaurants, including Yabu on La Cienega, just south of Melrose. Or, if they want superb sushi, Matsuhisa on La Cienega south of Burton Way. They can go to Koi on La Cienega which is a Hollywood scene.
