  • Sailor, how many islands have you been to so far, excluding Vancouver island, Centre Island in Toronto, and the thousand islands along Ontario and New York border? Sailor, how many islands have you been to so far, excluding Vancouver island, Centre Island in Toronto, and the thousand islands along Ontario and New York border?
    • ○  I think I've been to more than four thousand islands. But I haven't been to Central Island or the Thousand Islands.
      • ○  So you visit about 200 islands each year in average during recent 20 years, right? I guess some of islands are very tiny.
        • ○  I visited a place called Four Thousand Islands. That helps a lot on the numbers! LOL
          • ○  Oh, in Southern Laos, right? You are so smart!
          • ●  Thanks to the Creator! One main island or a few main islands can have countless baby islets in the surrounding water area.

    • ○  Fancy breakfast at the airbnb house
      • ○  Very cute egg dish! 👍 Why do you think the breakfast is fancy? What is the red food in a rectangular box? The place looks neat and tidy. Enjoy!😁
        • ○  It's an AirBnB place. Never thought a breakfast would be like that. The red thing is papaya.
          • ○  They will earn more from your positive review.
      • ●  I wonder how you ate the eggset it in the container, crack the top open, and scoop?
        • ○  Sorry, no, but I ate it in a barbaric way, as I used to do at home. :D
          • ○  Why do you define your way of eating eggs as "a barbaric way"? Eat uncooked eggs? Make big noise when you crack and remove the shells? Directly use fingers to deliver eggs into your mouth instead of using a spoon or other utensils?
            • ○  LOL
    • ●  Bright and beautiful!😁
    • ●  Are you going to visit around all the surrounding islands there? Or at least the ABC? Enjoy scuba diving adventure there!😁
      • ○  Secret! (for now, LOL)
        • ○  When will it no longer be a secret? 😁Hahaha, just for fun. I have no intention to dig your secret. Enjoy your beach days there!
          • ○  Stay tuned... :D
        • ●  on honeymoon? hahaha
          • ○  Wow! That would be really good news! If it's true, Lao Da must treat us - Rolians with the best chocolates or candies or cakes.
          • ●  Very unfortunately it is not. :((
  • Curaçao Curaçao
    • ○  Have fun! This is one of the destinations I would love to go in Caribbean.
      • ○  Why? :)
        • ○  It's safe there, and people are happy. No annoying vendors.
          • ○  The risk of hurricane is very low there, right?
            • ○  I guess. I have been to Aruba only, out of the ABC islands. Seems that it does not get impacted much.
          • ●  Pretty true. But it's super expensive!
    • ●  DUSHI
      • ○  Zhe Shi Ni Ma WenHao :)
      • ●  what are you looking at? :) nice pic.
        • ○  Reading history, or poem. :D
      • ●  Were you practicing yoga on sands or reading your hand patterns for your happiness and auspiciousness?😁 Thanks to the photographer!
        • ○  :D
      • ●  As "DUSHI", wish the beautiful scenery, nice mixed culture and comfortable weather there bring you a sweet mood and happy life! 😁
    • ●  Did you arrive to the Sheela's Fashion too early? 😁
      • ○  Don't know that... :p
        • ○  I found the fashion store's door was not opened yet from your picture.
          • ○  I see. Never ever pay attention to clothing stores. Hahaha
  • Do you still want to climb the Mt. Everest? Do you still want to climb the Mt. Everest?
    • ○  That's a really unexpected issue, sadly! I believe any business related to sightseeing, tourism, leisure and entertainment will become hotter and more profit.
    • ●  Sailor, did you climb it before?
      • ○  Nope. In fact, when I had a strong ego long time ago, I thought about it. Later on I figure out that it's not a good idea to set a goal simply for showing off.
        • ○  I believe that your thinking has become more mature and stable, deeper and more thoughtful. Good job!👍😁
    • ●  Alan Arnette: I climbed Mount Everest at 54 – Here’s what's really happening on the world’s highest peak
    • ●  Have you watched the 2017 movie "The Climb"? It made the climbing look so easy. Not sure how much influence it had though.
      • ○  No I haven't. With new technology, climbing must be much easier than 50 years ago. But it's also less impressive. :)

    • ○  The US is one of the most unequal countries on the planet in terms of wealth distribution, but why everybody is trying to migrate to US?
      • ○  Because they think the USA is the most powerful country and also it's the best country.
        • ○  What makes a country with high poverty level powerful and the best?
          • ○  The "survival of the fittest" rule is used.They select talents from all over the world. They give the best opportunities and rewards to the strongest and most successful people. They provide the most resources and funds to support their high-tech and defence forces.
  • 11 ways to keep mosquitoes far far away 11 ways to keep mosquitoes far far away
    • ○  Great information for the upcoming summer!
      • ○  I am afraid of being bitten by mosquitoes. Once a mosquito bites me, my skin becomes red, swollen and very itchy around the bitten spots. Furthermore, the very itchy red marks can last for 5~6 months long - that's the most annoying thing!
        • ○  Obviously you didn't receive enough bites when you were a kid. :) My body basically gets used to it.
          • ○  In my memory, I was not very sensitive to mosquitoes' bites when I was in China. It seems that the mosquitoes in the US and Canada are more poisonous. I wish that mosquitoes in North America will become more friendly to me later.😂
          • ●  Another possible reason is that the population in North America is too little, comparing to that in China. So the mosquitoes here are more hungry.😂
  • Assembly hall of the Chaozhou Chinese congregation, Hoi An, Vietnam Assembly hall of the Chaozhou Chinese congregation, Hoi An, Vietnam
    • ○  It's nice to see something carrying or inheriting traditional Chinese culture in a different country. I guess you must get a sense of intimacy which is similar as the feelings back to hometown. 😁
    • ●  I saw someone was adding names to the wall of donor list. Perhaps I can find your name on the list of donors if I visit there in the future, and if I knew your real name by then😁. Overall, the whole site looks being well maintained.👍
      • ○  Yeah I donated, but didn't leave my name. The amount was too small to have my name carved. :D
    • ●  Is the unit of money donated to there counted by "guan 贯"? How much is one guan?
      • ○  Good observation! I didn't notice it. I guess that's a currency unit in Vietnam more than a century ago? At least I know in China there used to be such a unit "guan".
        • ○  Refer to this:
          • ○  Yup! And there is a Teuchew opera call Fifteen Guan.
            • ○  I only remember the name, but don't remember the content or the story plot. I guess it's related to 15 Guan of the old money. I will learn it.😁
    • ●  Interestingly to see your photos on Google Maps and I'd like to add one of mine, which is the front gate.
      • ○  Haha, Thanks! It seems that I always went to somewhere you already visited. :D
        • ○  Not really and there are many places you visited but I haven't, one of them is India.
