There are lots of old buildings in Hong Kong. I think the most interesting ones are the corner buildings with a round corner on every floor.  These buildings are pretty old, and most are not tall at all.  I would guess they are 50 to 60 years on average.

It has been a while since I visited the University of British Columbia. I attended my classes there many many moons ago and now going there for a leisure walk has a totally different feeling.

Hope you enjoy these photos taken during the Anime Evolution 2010.

I have been to a Japanese Garden when I was visiting Tokyo.  This time, I visited a Chinese Garden in Vancouver.  The Sun Yat-Sen Park and Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden are two parts of the same facility in the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver in China Town.  The Park is free for admission.  The Classical Chinese Garden costs $10 per admission.

Let me take you for a tour.

Sun Yat-Sen Park by you.

This is the main entrance of the Chinese Cultural Centre.  What a contrast between the Chinese entrance and the Western hotel behind it!  Try 3D visualization using Google Street View of the front entrance. Read Full Article →
