Share Your World – May 15, 2017
Cee has interesting questions for this week, and I love to share my answers.
- How many languages do you speak?
Well, I read and write Chinese. In spoken language, the official Chinese language is Mandarin. I speak Mandarin, and Cantonese is my mother tongue. I also speak a little bit of Spanish. When I worked as school district administrator, part of my job was working with parents. There were many Spanish speaking parents in my community.
- What are you reading, watching, listening to, or eating?
My husband and I watch the nature video every night. Currently, we are watching an Ocean series – South Pacific Islands. Last night we watched the part about “Saving the Sharks.” Some villages on these islands make their living by killing the sharks. The Conservation Program works with the village people, created a tourism business to take divers to the ocean to observe and feed the sharks. The villages benefit from the tourism. The Lead for the diving tour is from the village. His job as diving Lead makes three times more than killing the sharks. The program has been working to save a lot of sharks.
- What was the last photo you took with your phone?
I used my phone to take the following photo in Kelley Point Park, Portland, Oregon, a few days ago.
- What is your favorite time of day?
My favorite time of the day is morning. When I have the coffee in my hand, walking through my garden and check on the flowers and fruit trees. It’s my time to make connection to the earth and appreciate the life and growth of the plants.
