It is the Normal Thing to Do

Yesterday, the Chinese girl who was involved in a hit-and-run case a week earlier had just died. It was a sad news. Her injuries were so severe that whatever the doctors did could not save her. One of the drivers had been caught; and the other one had voluntary surrendered to the police. One of them showed remorse for his crime. Meanwhile, none of the passers-by would admit about their cold-heartedness. One even reportedly said that he did not see the girl because it was too dark. Another one said that if he had seen the girl, he would have saved her.

The Little Girl Cries for the Little Chinese Girl

Today, I just saw a very disturbing footage of a hit-and-run case involving a Chinese toddler. The two-year-old girl was walking alone (probably just outside her home) when a van ran over her. While she was still breathing and struggling, the child was then ran over by a truck. The most alarming part is 18 passers-by had turned a blind eye, as shown in the video. They were walking just a few inches from her! I’m not aware for how long, but after some time, a garbage collector pulled her to the sidewalk and started looking for the child’s mom. Her mom finally arrived and rushed her to the hospital. The girl was reportedly brain dead. The father, in tears, was begging for kind-hearted people to help him find the drivers who did that to his daughter.

Free Items

My family loves free things and giveaways. We tend to buy products bundled with free items even if we don’t need either of them. Earlier this year, we saw an advertisement of Time Magazine. The ad said that by subscribing for either a year or two, we can avail a Time travelling bag and a Time wristwatch! My dad was drooling for the giveaways. He convinced us to subscribe, saying that by doing so, we could save half the price of the magazine. Each issue costs P120. The one year subscription (with a total of 54 issues) costs P3,132. My dad added that my sister loves reading Time. She would buy it everytime she sees it in the mall. She retorted that we don’t need that much issue and not every issue is interesting for us. Despite our reluctance, we agreed. We purchased the one-year subscription using my dad’s credit card.

An Uneventful Double Ten Day

Today is Double Ten Day! It is the national day of the Republic of China that is primarily celebrated in Taiwan. What’s more special is this year marks the 100th year celebration of the national day. As I am typing this entry, my mom is watching the news from Taiwan. Some of our Chinese family friends went to Taiwan to witness this unusual event.
Since this is a very special and rare event, some couples had chosen to get married today. More than 300 pairs are wedded in Taiwan. Another unusual event today is the birth of a girl to Taiwanese parents who were married on September 9, 1999 (9/09/99). How remarkable is that?

Goodbye Steve Jobs

First of all, I don't use Apple products. I find them too expensive. Even so, Steve Jobs' death really saddens me. I don't know anything about his personal life. All I know is that he is a great innovator.

I drew this picture as a tribute to this great man. Goodbye Steve Jobs. The world will miss you.
