I went Cat-sitting for this baby cat, Oliver. 照看可爱的小猫

The other day I went cat-sitting for a baby cat. When I lived in China, my aunt ran a pet beauty shop, which made me fall in love with all kinds of cute pets. When I had free time, I would go to aunt’s, playing with them. I think maybe you heard about some bad news about China and dogs. In fact most of us also hate the tradition in some areas in Asia where they celebrate this dog-eating festivals. My aunt goes there every year to Yulin, Guangxi province to save those poor dogs. That’s the only thing we couldn’t do.

Then afterwards I took care of one of her Golden Retriever pet for a while. I called him the King. I haven’t had any pets ever since I moved to Belgium. The main reason is I plan to travel a lot these few years. Yet I miss the days hanging out with them and would like to have one in the future.

Friends of mine got lovely a kitty, so sometimes I went cat-sitting for them when they went for a short trip.

一起住在国内的时候,我阿姨是个宠物达人,她开了一家宠物美容店,每天把各路宠物打扮德漂漂亮亮的。爱宠物这件事她可以说是以身作则,甚至还去广西救那些可怜的狗狗。在她的影响下,我也从一个有点怕狗(因为小时候被狗追的阴影)的人变成了爱狗一族。在国内的时候,我也帮阿姨照顾一只金毛很长时间。

自从来了比利时也就没有了宠物,由于这几年还有很大旅行的计划,暂时不很方便养宠物。有一些朋友家里有可爱的小猫小狗,有时候他们周末出行,我就过去帮他们照看宠物。前几天我帮一个朋友照看一个可爱的猫宝宝,他叫Oliver。

Join me on a walking tour through Dublin city. 跟我去都柏林走走

Last night I arrived in Dublin city. It was colder and windier than I thought. I often complained about the Belgian summer, until now I see the Irish summer. But luckily it’s sunny today, still cold though, at around 17 degrees celsius. I wandered around the city center and also joined a walking tour. If you know the Dublin’s great official city tourism website VISITDUBLIN, you can for sure feel how much effort the city put on its city tourism. In the city, there’re many walking tours, much more than any other city I’ve visited.

昨天晚上刚到都柏林的时候,我真是震惊了,居然还有比比利时更冷的夏天。都柏林的夏夜真是又冷风又大。我顿时对比利时的夏天再没了怨恨,哈哈。还好,今天是个大晴天,虽然只有17度左右,阳光还是很不错。上午我在城里走走,都柏林算是个挺舒服的城市,我第一眼就很喜欢,下午我参加了一个免费的3小时步行团。在欧洲和南美很多大城市都有这样的以小费为收入的免费步行团。神奇的是都柏林这样的中型城市具有的免费团竟然比其他任何城市都多。都柏林旅游发展的很好,如果你们还不知道,我想介绍他们的官方城市旅游网站VISITDUBLIN,做得非常用心。

How you can enjoy a rainy day in Dublin. 雨下再大又怎样,干脆开心的淋一场

I read some comments left from Irish Steemians on my last post and realized how lucky I was yesterday. As you can see, today it was cloudy and later rainy. Still, I went to the city for a walk. There’re always something to do even on a bad day.

我在我昨天的帖子里读到一些爱尔兰朋友的评论,说爱尔兰的天气可糟糕了。今天我总算是体会到昨天的好天气是多么难能可贵啊!今天天瞬间变得阴阴的。虽然好天气没了,但是我还是打算去街上走走。体验一把爱尔兰人的周日时光。

‘Once’ in Dublin 《曾经》在都柏林

Have you ever seen the movie titled Once? This low budget modern-day musical was shot in only 17 days, on the streets of Dublin. ONCE is one of my favorite movies and is one of the main reason why I wanted to visit Dublin city. It’s such a beautiful movie, especially the ending. During my trip in Dublin, I try to find some movie scenes in real life. Here’s a song from its soundtrack, in case you haven’t seen the movie yet.

你们有没看过有部爱尔兰电影叫做《曾经》?这部只花了17天拍完,长度仅有一个半小时的电影更像一个长篇的音乐剧。当年这部电影的原声带以黑马姿态拿下了奥斯卡的最佳音乐奖。我一直很喜欢这部美好感人的小电影。也一直记得了拍摄电影的都柏林这个城市。这次来都柏林,我特地抽空去电影拍摄的几个场景走了走。如果你还没看过这部电影,先来停听听这首贯穿始终的《Falling Slowly》吧。
