Good-Tempered People

People with a big face are usually good-tempered, After all it is a bit exhausting for them to flip the face [to suddenly turn hostile]. ​​​​

Thank Goodness I Learned That Now

My daughter was sulking.

I: Hey you, you’ve got to learn to manage your emotions. Putting on a face of “who is coming to coax and humor me” is only going to make you annoying to others. But you are lucky for learning that postulate from me now. I figured that out myself after a long time. Many people don’t have emotional management skills all their lives.

Daughter: Thank Goodness I learned that now…

詩和遠方 [shī hé yuǎn fāng]

詩和遠方 [shī hé yuǎn fāng] <Expression> Poetry and the far-off land. This expression comes from the quote from Zhang Kequn, musician Gao Xiaosong’s mother, “Life is more than resigning to the mundane affairs in life; it is also about poetry and the far-off land.” This quote became popular among Chinese young people under the pressure of high housing prices in big cities. It is often cited to inspire people to stop fretting over not amassing enough material wealth and instead find a place of inner peace through art and travel.

Jackie’s 8/31 Weibo

​​Jackie updated her Weibo on August 31, 2017. 🙂

@Jackie咧:

Felt pumped tonight, sharing the joy with Xiaowa this time. @钟汉良 [耶]

Time flies like an arrow and flows like a “song” [two Chinese idioms about time].

In a wink, it has been Sing For Life 2017.

Music makes me feel all kinds of nice things about life.

Even if I can’t perform beautiful music,

The happy and pensive moments brought to me by music remain wonderful. Through the platform of music,

Friends from various cultures and I found the common language.

Over the past six months, Xiao Wa was incredibly busy, engrossed by the piano, the violin, and conducting.

Recently he shared with me the achievements of his hard work. We exchanged all kinds of newly gained knowledge and insights.

We strolled through the truth, kindness, and beauty conveyed by music and ventured to perform on the streets of Vienna. It was adventurous and fun.

I feel that after the past six months, I have one less brother, yet one more “soul mate” friend.

[Note: “知音” is probably a pun here. It means both “soul mates” and “friends through music” here. The word is a combination of “know” and “music”, so I think Jackie meant they became “soul mate” mates because their shared interest in music. This is also the original meaning of “知音” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bo_Ya

Back in 2014, Jackie said in the last episode of The Amazing Racing that the program made her feel that she had not only got her brother back but also got one more friend. (See the translation of her original words in the last part of this article.) Now, she has elevated Wallace’s status from a “friend” to a “soul mate”. 😉 ]

826, Sing For Life, Nanjing.

The Liang Family gathered together and witnessed Xiao Wa’s hard work.

[I] believe Healing Love will bring more pleasant surprises.

Looking forward [to your arrival], Fang Haosheng!

I really want to thank my brother Xiao Wa profusely here.

Although we grew up together, but honestly, we rarely saw each other over the past 20 years. The words we said to each other during the past 20 weeks were more than the words we said to each other in the past 20 years. So, I am thankful that he picked me to come here with him.

Actually at first, I thought he was a little annoying, and I didn’t trust him too much either. He also pushed me to do every task. During the past few months, stop by stop, we slowly got to know each other as two estranged siblings. He began to learn about me, and I began to discover things about him. It turns out he is really good at doing many things. At the beginning I felt he seemed to rely on me to do everything, but later I discovered he was even able to take care of me. I feel that over these few months, I seem to have got my brother back, and also I have got one more friend.

Really. Thank you.

I remember her sincere and moving speech.I remember her sincere and moving speech.

Wallace Chung’s 8/29 Weibo

Put my mind to one thing, learned musical skills, engaging myself in every detail, looking forward to exquisite outcomes. Then, when I watched the edited segments, I got ideas that are more concrete, which generated more creativity: How can we create a new language in an established paradigm? Not sure if [we] can make it, but [we] want to give it a try because [we are] young. So, regarding the concert that ended on the 26th, the wishes for the Qixi Festival, the more changes at the Exhibition, and tomorrow, [it is more appropriate to say that] I belong more to the future [future-oriented]. Move forward step by step. [Let’s] keep going. @花花草草传媒 @陈向熙Nora @古斌samuel @钟汉良W良家族

FROM HON WALLACE CHUNG EXHIBITION

The View and the Sentiment
Forest Story

I was probably 16 years old
When I shot my first print ad as a non-pro.
Loved soccer. That happened without a cause.
After school a group of people went to play football and basketball.
That period of time, was innocent and carefree.
Although I cannot go back to those years,
Recalling that at this moment,
The sweat of youth still reminds me that I was 16 years old that year.

“The years are tranquil and wonderful. Only by having our feet planted on solid ground [idiom meaning being earnest and down-to-earth] can we feel that.”

“Because I have talent, I don’t want to give up.”

—Wallace Chung
