Near Blogbus’s Office

Blue sky – although it is not that blue, but the sunny and clear Sunday is rare.

The new buliding near Blogbus’ office seems to be a big one.

The area at Long Hua Road seems to be a place with good potential – maybe like 798 in Beijing. The difference is, it is a morden art and design district, instead of just a place of art.

Dukou Bookstore on Julu Road

I was in Dukou Bookstore today with Hengge and two other friends. After lunch at Hengge’s home, and wandered near Blogbus’s office, we finally decided to visit the newly opened bookstore. It is at the Julu Road, and the Fumin Road, in Jinan District.

Chairs and tables. They serve coffee and tea, but don’t expect it as professional as a cafe. However, it is good to stay there for sometime for exchange of some hours of free reading time.

Sunny afternoon is the best time to visit, when the sun pours down and hit the wall. This is the small garden facing the Julu Road…

They have some nice books. I like the taste of the books, although I doubt how many people will like it. For example, I didn’t learn to appreciate the value of these books years ago.

Drawing Lessons

Recently, I tried to draw what I saw, and sometimes get frustrated about how to arrange the lines to make sure I can replicate what I see on my paper. Here is my drawing lesson today:

Look at all the parallel lines. The extension line must meet at the same point, and this helps people to draw.

P.S. Thanks Xia5

Thanks Xia5 for allowing me to take photos inside her bookstore.

I’d recommend my readers to go there and pay a visit. It worth a sunny afternoon.

Back from 5G Review

I was hesitating whether to attend the 5G Review today when the clock shows 2:00 PM. Finally, I decided not to be too lazy. It seems I should go out of home in this sunny Saturday.

5G Review is a meetup about Internet, media and other emerging industry.

Location: UBB Coffee, 4th Floor, Lansheng Massion, 8 Middle Huaihai Road.

Time: 2:00 – 5:00 PM every Saturday

Participatoin: free of entrance, but need to notify organizer at, or ask an exsisting member to bring you there.

The topic for today is: The Blue Ocean or Red Ocean for Blogbus…

I enjoy to have my friends talk about insight of the business, and start to think about my own questions, and answers.

Long Metro Trains on Line #1

The traditional Metro Train is 6 cart train (from 1995 to 2007).

From this year, there are longer trains, so they put the sticker on the glasses of the door to indicate the location for the first 6 cart, and the following two – cart #7 and cart 8.

When train is approaching, there are broadcast to notify people about the number of train carts in the coming train, so people don’t need to wait before the rest of the gates, where there will be no train carts.

Look at these pictures:

DMG changed screen

The DMG (Digital Media Group) changed the LCD display to some new, and bigger one. Look at these nice display:
