Sheshan

The Mount She (It is pronounced as Sheer, not as the female pronoun), is the closest mountain to Shanghai (it is at the Qingpu District of the city). It is maybe the only climbable nature thing in this city. Wendy and I decided to go there and climb the mountain. It is not far from our home in Pudong – 51 km. We climbed the mountain – it is lower than most of the buildings in this city – less than 90m. Within 20 minutes, we went to the top and get to the ground, pretty confused, and disappointed by how low the hill actually is.

But anyway, it is a very nice place to spend some time. The national park is free of charge. You just need to get to the gate before 4:30 pm.

Steve Jobs’ Video

On YouTube, I spent some time to watch a lot of videos of Steve Jobs. The videos are just charming. Among them are some interesting clips I want to share with you the funniest one:

Steve Jobs Funniest Joke. Even Bill Gates Laughs!

He said Apple is like a ship with a hole in the bottom, leaking water and my job is to get the ship pointed in the right direction”. (Ship-pointed-to-the-right-direction is quote from the former CEO of Apple, Gil Amelio, who badly screwed the company).

Storm at Real Estate Market?

At Sheshan, I saw about 20 real estate agents running everywhere to stop cars passing by, trying to sell low price villa to the passengers.

The red price line was surprising – it said 50% off! I have no idea about whether it is the actual cut, but it just give me the dramatic feeling of a burst of bubble in the real estate market – very dramatic feeling. Let’s just wait and see what is going on.

A New Week

A new week is ahead, and I am really excited to start the week tomorrow. There is a big blueprint out there, and I just want to get it started, and finish it ASAP.

York had a blog presentation about his 2005. I realized in those days, people have enough time to write blogs. I reviewed many of the articles on my blog I wrote many years ago. I had to admit that the quality of the entries are much better than today. We are slower in those days, and have much more time to spend to record the life, than we do today. Slow down a little bit, pick the most important things and have inner peace…. inner peace…
