Those characters and lines, seem like withered lily pads, but are actually proud and wild.
Note: At first glance, the Chinese character “声” means “sound,” but after reading several fans’ interpretations, I think “chimed” is a better translation. According to some fans, Wallace posted the weibo near the Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano) in Milan, Italy around noon (11:50 AM to be precise).
Some fans found out that the sundial of the Milan Cathedral is translated as “太阳钟 [pronounced as tài yáng zhōng]” in Chinese. It literally means “the sun clock” or, as Wallace and the fans may see it, “Sun+Zhong,” As he often does, Wallace played around with polysemic Chinese words in the weibo. Many fans came to the realization that the complete caption of the weibo photo should be “太阳钟声 [tài yáng zhōng shēng]”—”The sun clock chimed” or “[Little] Sun+Zhong’s voice.” One fan even pointed out another pun— “太阳钟生 [same pronunciation, tài yáng zhōng shēng],” or “[Little] Sun+Zhong Sheng [Mr. Zhong in Cantonese]”…
Of course, this character also refers to Fang Haosheng, Wallace’s role in Healing Love.
Just finished filming [for the day]. Xiao Zhen [Little Zhen. “Little” is used before someone’s first name to show affection.] handed me the script for tomorrow’s filming. I recalled that the day before yesterday we finished work around dinner time. Someone said that we had not had a group dinner for a long time, so we decided instantly to go have dinner together. Xiao Zhen still kept herself busy while everyone else was joking around and stuffing their faces. They were hungry so they ate to their hearts’ content, which explains what the word “satisfied” means. Xiao Zhen suddenly spoke of what happened when she first met with me. She said, “That day was May 25, 2007!” The other people screamed, “Wasn’t that today ten years ago?” Everyone was happily stunned! Xiao Zhen said, “I went to a beauty salon near Jing’an Temple to meet you. You were getting a haircut there. You were wearing a white T-shirt, dark-colored jeans, and a pair of very [the original word was “hin” instead of “hen” because Xiao Zhen said that word with a funny accent, and Wallace naughtily kept that in his original weibo] white sneakers. Later you took me to work. In the car, you turned around and asked me what my name was, and after thinking for a long time you said you would call me Xiao Zhen.” When Xiao Zhen talked about those things, I immediately felt I went back to those days, all the memories replayed before my eyes vividly. It turns out that it is going to be the 11th year for Xiao Zhen to work as my assistant. We experienced so many things together…We went to the set with the extras in a Jinbei [Chinese car brand] van; the place we lived in back then had a leaking problem when it rains; we huddled together in a small corner and had lunch served in partitioned boxes; she held the script and rehearsed the lines with me; we had contests of memorizing the Tang dynasty poetry and the ci poetry of the Song dynasty. Since I started filming [in mainland] in 1999, I had been used to taking care of myself. Then Xiao Zhen appeared. To this day the macro environment for filming is constantly changing, but we still keep learning. It is so nice to feel motivated like this. There is a sentence [Zen proverb] that goes, “The person who drinks it knows best whether the water is hot or cold.” At this moment I think of the staff members working around me. Grateful. Thank you all.
Today I upgraded to VIP 7 (Sina Weibo’s automatic update).
Put my mind to one thing, learned musical skills, engaging myself in every detail, looking forward to 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.

The breakfast meeting started.
Breakfast: …What I want to say is…
My lunch mainly consisted of vegetables, accompanied by the Milan Cathedral-shaped spaghetti, colorful, pleasing to the eye and the mind. When you are 50% full, you will be more creative. See Little Ke (nickname for Ecovacs). Become your family. Full commercial series #10,000 hours with Wallace Chung @科沃斯
Shared three meals of a day with you guys. It is because I watched the British fitness expert Joe Wicks’s videos. Then I made some healthy dishes on a whim. Be naughty sometimes! My mom gave me the review “looks good.” Let’s have dinner together. Let’s get started!

At last night’s meeting, I mentioned a few Hong Kong movies dating back to the 1980s and the sense of ritualization in the entertainment milieu back then. On the way home, my car stopped at the traffic light. I thought to myself: I was only a teen at that time, how come a few romantic scenes between the leading male and female characters left such a deep impression on me? Perhaps it was the “ritual” of going to the cinema that made those scenes an indelible part of my memories. Was that my initial interpretation of movies? “It was such a nuanced feeling!” I pondered. A white old model car halted in the next lane. The drizzle covered the car windows with a layer of mist. I could barely see the man and woman in that car. They didn’t interact with each other. Their blank stares laid on the road, mixed with the exhaustion from work. Perhaps time was still in their car, and the air was chilly. Following the motionless red light was the yellow light which called for preparation, and then came the keenly anticipated reminder of the jubilant green light. Shouldn’t we all live our lives with such jubilance and keep in mind our dreams, youth, and the sentiments that we hold dear and near to the heart?
Last weekend I went to Itzhak Perlman’s recital. He was a violin prodigy. He is also an orchestral conductor. He is a maestro of the century with extraordinary achievements in multiple fields. Because I was cast in the role of a musician in the TV show Healing Love, I watched many video clips of great musicians. Albeit a doddering man, when he [Perlman] performs, he seems to be able to be totally immersed in the music, his body undulating as if to breathe. This time, I was able to attend the recital in person and admire the Romantic pieces that he is adept at. It was a thrilling experience for me. The next morning, I opened my violin case, took out the violin and resumed practice. I started with the scores for Healing Love. Over the next two days, the Liang Family’s “Face the Sun Project & Village Libraries of Happiness” is set to open two new branches in Yuci, Shanxi.

Whose birthday? @He Jiong
Note: Chinese TV host He Jiong left a comment on
Sina Weibo’s automatic birthday update on Wallace’s page: “Idol idol happy birthday!”, so Wallace teased He Jiong with the question. He tried to get Mr. He to call him “idol” again.
Well, the clever Teacher He [his nickname] would never fall for that! He re-shared Wallace’s question and answered with a pun which could mean either “Wa Wa Wa Wa Wa it’s my Wa’s!” or “Wow wow wow wow wow it’s mine!” He then ended up really getting some birthday day wishes…
2017#COSMO Fashion and Beauty Grand Ceremony# Low-profile and down-to-earth, conscientious ad diligent. His professionalism earned rave reviews in the field. He took on different roles with ease. He is incredibly charismatic in every move. He is @Wallace Chung.
