it

分类: 小小译文

    

I'm typing this on my iPad. I pre-ordered it and it came yesterday. I spent a fair bit of time playing with it last night.

I don't know where the complaints about typing come from. Compared to the iPhone, I find typing on the iPad to be much easier.

I also find it much easier to read on this device than the iPhone. The bigger screen size makes a huge difference, at least on my middle aged eyes. I downloaded the Kindle app and love the fact that the Gotham Gal and I can now read the same book at the same time on multiple devices. That's been possible with Kindle and iPhone for a while now but reading books on the iPhone never interested me.

I showed the Gotham Gal several books she has just read on the Kindle displayed on the iPad. She grabbed the iPad and immediately said 'this thing is way too heavy.' I guess I will be reading on the iPad and she'll be reading on the Kindle. I agree that the iPad is heavy. I've been holdin

Time for Shanghai Expo to take it easy

上海世博:是时候慢慢来了 

 

With 45 days to go before the opening of World Expo 2010, Shanghai is gearing up enthusiastically for its final preparations to make a big impression on the world stage.

距2010世博会开幕还有45天,上海正在紧张积极地进行最后一项准备,力求给世界一个难以忘怀的印象。

 

Yet now should also be the time for Shanghai, and China at large, to take it easy.

然而,目前,对于上海乃至整个中国来说,是时候从容些了。

 

Everything does not have to be perfect at the Shanghai Expo. After all, as 159 years of tradition indicate, the Expo is merely a big global party for people to enjoy the fun brought by modern civilization.

办世博,不需要一切都尽善尽美。毕竟,159年的传统告诉我们,世博会仅仅只是一个让全世界的人民能够欣赏到现代文明精粹的全球性

The Tomb Sweeping Festival is not only an occasion to commemorate death, but a happy break for those who remain alive. Apart from the obligatory visitation of the burial grounds of deceased family and friends, having a good plan for the b

杂谈

分类: 小小译文

Forget the Shanghai Composite and the Hong Kong Hang Seng. If you want to know what’s going on in the economy, go to lunch, and in Hong Kong that means noodles. Lau Cheong Kei’s handmade noodles have been a staple for decades, but even these cheap mid-day snacks are not recession proof.

 

暂时抛开上海的化工产业以及香港的恒生指数吧。如果想了解经济的发展态势,去下馆子吧,特别是在香港,去面馆里体验面条经济学。刘昌旗的手工擀面已经大规模地发展了几十年了,但是即使是这些便宜的午间小吃也不能意味着不受金融危机的影响。

“So how much do people spend on average?”

 “平均人均消费是多少?”

“US dollar around three US dollar.”

 “3美元左右。”

“Around three US dollars, and fewer customers or same customers spending less?”

 “才3美元啊,是客户少了还是他们更省了?”

“More customer but spend little.”

 “客户是多了,但是都比较省。”

“Really.”

 “哦,这样啊。”
