In last November, I finally bought a set of Sony PS3 for its blue-ray capability and for the long waiting game, Gran Turismo 5. There are hundreds of cars from daily driving cars to the super sports cars waiting for my driving. I think this game making most boys' (and some girls) dream come true. Though I am already a level 24 driver in the game, but I still expect more driving experiences and challenges in the game. I don't think I will be ever bored with this wonderful game.

Also, there is a photography function allows me to take photo when my driving video replayed. I can choose the timing, location, and angle for photo shooting. The best is to set up the camera just like the real one; shutter speed, aperture, zoom in/out.... So I can take photos of my dream cars under fully controlled conditions.

I think Gran Turismo 5 provides me unusual experiences which there are almost impossible happened in my real life. It really give me a lot of pleasure! Would you like to give it a try and join the race in virtual world?

Cherry Blossoms at Ueno Park
It has been a week since the super earthquake followed by tsunami stuck northeast Japan on March 11, 2011. So far over 7,0000 people lost their lives and around 11,000 are still missing.

There are thousands people became homeless and are fighting for their lives. They also need to face the sorrow of losing families and friends.

Japan is one of my favorite countries, I've been there for 24 times for business and personal trips. I am not able to do anything to comfort and help those people who are suffering from this disaster. All I can do is pray for them and provide limited help through money donation.

Hope the bad weather and the nuclear crisis go away soon, also wish all the people be strong and back to their normal life soon, though their life will not be normal any more.

beautiful tulip garden

There was a long weekend at the end of February and the weather was so pretty; warm and sunny. Most people took this opportunity to have outdoor activities. The most popular activity was visiting the cherry blossom sites.

We did not go to see cherry blossom instead of visiting a private garden named 桃源仙谷 (Tao Yuan Shan Gu) where was full of variety of tulips. We enjoyed those colorful tulips and some cherry blossoms, also enjoyed the walking under the sunshine.

As seeing those beautiful flowers and feeling warm weather, we were pretty sure "spring is coming!".
