In China, there are tradition called Nian Ye Fan (年夜饭) or New Year Eve Dinner. It is a special dinnner specially designed for family members to gather at the Chinese New Year Eve to celebrate the New Year. But many companies and organization prepare New Year Eve Dinner for their members and employees – it is just the same concept of family New Year Eve Dinner, but just at different time.
Our New Year Eve Dinner
We had our 2008 company meeting today, and our company New Year Eve at night at a Sichuan Restaurant. It was a busy and exciting day.
The Diary of a Young Girl
At night, on the way back home, I listened to the radio. My favorite channel in my car is Shanghai Story Channel (107.2 MHz).They introduced The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank today. I read part of the book many times before, but didn’t read it all. I have put Annie’s Diary into my reading list, and hope to read it again (after 5 years) and believe I must have new ideas about the book.
During the family meeting on Jan 10 in Luoyang, I think my brother’s suggestion to build more interest is a really good idea. Reading is one. I read about the Art of Travel in 2005, and that book impacted my whole year of 2005 and the following years. I am going to read more…
P.S On TV
I posted false forecast about the Channel Young yeasterday, but the program turned out missing, and the 8 minutes program was on air today from 8:00 – 9:00 PM. My primary school friend Wang Chen sent me SMS to tell me the news. I don’t know at all, and I don’t really care either. But I feel sorry that I may disappointed some of my readers yesterday.
From this blog Entry of Culture Matters, I also learnt that the program I recorded long time ago with Eric Zheng was broadcast this Monday and Tuesday on ICS from 7:30 to 8:00 PM. I missed it too. Don’t worry. Being connected via this media (this blog you are reading), and other media is part of my life. As the CEO of a company, I tried to keep my private life “private” – private here means, it 100% belongs to me, and I believe that is the healthy way to live.
