Greetings! =)

Hello everyone!Since I am bored from studying and the weather is miserably cold (and it's supposed to be spring.....) I shall post something.  

Here's a picture from the New Year Countdown last Dec. We went to The Curve, but had to drive off before 12 am to avoid getting stuck in the complex.

After watching fireworks, we went to Ren Yin's house. Zhao....what a pose. Lol.

I went to Ireland recently, and here's a picture from St. Stephen's Green, a public park in the city center of Dublin.

I also went to the Guinness Storehouse, the core of which is a giant pint glass, which, if filled, can hold approximately 14.3 million pints of GUINNESS®!

Here's a view of the city from The Gravity Bar, which is located at the highest floor of the building, where each visitor can take 1 pint of Guinness and enjoy the view of the city...

A few exhibits in the storehouse.

This is UCD (University College Dublin), where my friend is studying. The campus is really big and nice. And this huge egg is located right outside the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.....

This is Temple Bar, a famous place in the city center where many bars play traditional Irish music at night. Nice atmosphere.

Lastly, this is the statue of Molly Malone, one of the most familiar symbols of Dublin. If you are wondering who she is, she was supposedly a beautiful and busty fishmonger (some said she was a prostitute by night) who finally died of typhoid fever. She is the heroine of the unofficial anthem for Dublin, ‘Cockles and Mussels'.

This picture is so blur because when I was taking it groups of people from left and right actually stopped for me. Haha I mumbled apologies after that. But oh well my friend said that Dublin is a laid-back city...

So there, I hope that everyone is doing well wherever you are. Good luck for upcoming exams, and hope to hear more from you all! =)
