(World Trade Center and US Coast Guard "Dallas")
(Ground Zero, Oct., 2006 by Jane)
Tomorrow will be the 6th anniversary of 911. Luckily I had a chance to see the World Trade Center when it was still there. In December, 1992, that was my first winter break in US. I went to New York City to visit my cousin and had a chance to take a good look at this big city for a month. NY city is quite an amazing city; you can see the best and the worst of US there. I did enjoy visiting museums, watching my first Broadway show and experiencing this melting pot of different cultures. But I did not like the terrible traffic and the unsafe feeling.
I visited World Trade Center and enjoyed the view from its observation deck, but I have never thought it collapsed in 2001 by a terrorist attack. I though it was a movie trailer when I first saw it on TV, and later I realized it was REAL! I really felt sorry for those victims and their families.
Tomorrow will be another 911, and I will take a flight to Japan. One of my colleagues asked me if I really want to do so? Well, I have to, it is a business trip, and I am not afraid at all.

(Mercedes Benz TV commercial from Youtube)
Usually I don't like to copy some one's photos or videos for my blog, because I prefer to show originals. But this time, I just can not help to post this commercial!
As most formula one fans know, the competition (both on and off track) between 2 McLarne's drivers is so obvious. This time Mercedes Benz made it real in TV commercial. It is quite a funny and creative work, and you can see 3 F1 stars in this commercial; Alonso, Hamilton and Hakkinen.

After the open house of Sung Shan AFB, friends complained the air shows were not as exciting as seen at other AFBs, because the formations were not low enough to impress visitors. They could not feel the power of jet engines.

This rifle is a Chinese made type 56 semi-auto carbine which is the SKS rifle in Russia. I kept this rifle for almost one year till I traded in for another rifle. I enjoyed sports shooting pretty much due to the cheap Chinese ammo. (USD110 for 1000 round 7.62x39 ammo).
p.s. I have to thank the owner of the gun store. I could not enjoy sports shooting without his assistance.
