Time goes like water through my fingers. But unlike water, I believe there are something left and stayed in my hands.
For many researchers, environmentalists and politicians COP 15 was just a conference heading to better environmental conditions and efforts as well as intense negotiations with different stakeholders. For me, it's not…Continue

Yesterday, we learned a lot of words about the spring in Danish class, flowers, animals, garden... We also had discussions that spring was coming and "solen skinne"...
Then, the weather suddenly changed and started to rain. After a while, the raining became snowing. Wow, very "good" cooperation with our topic and the weather brought us back to winter again…Continue

This time, we had no white Xmas, no white New Year in Aalborg. A little bit disappointed for a while. However, the snow came in the Spring Festival (new year according to lunar calender). Exciting！ And we got a heavy snow yesterday, the city suddenly became a white world, with the fresh air in the morning I left a lot of footprint in front my dorm on the way to the bus station--that's the path I took...

While the train moved closely to Denmark gradually, lovely small houses with different colors appeared outside the window. It's the time for Christmas, the decorated houses and gardens look very beautiful and warm...
Meanwhile, the exam is coming soon. Lots of work to do with the project report. The good thing is that part of the work for internship is on the same topic of my report. The experience is really helpful both on the academic level and on practical working level.

Today heard the big news about the election--Denmark is to be led by its first female prime minister! I'm not keen on politics, I really have no idea who the leader actually is, whether left or right...... Interesting thing is that I really experienced what I never did before. I mean when I walk out, the candidates' photo are on the most obvious place , like nearly every several poles you can see sb vs sb... So…Continue

New semester starts, but my internship hasn't really started yet. So I've gotten several days for getting to know the new environment here before enter into work. Although Denmark and Germany are very close each other and I can see how fast the German people learn Danish language, you'll find it's totally different experience when you come here. First, the transportation system is much more complicated here. I've…Continue

Yesterday we experienced an amazing holiday in Denmark, it's called Karneval. Everyone in Aalborg, even people living other cities outside Aalborg get together in Aalborg on this special holiday, dancing, singing happily with different costumes. I feel sooo exciting to join the whole city party! We took a lot of pics on the parade.
Unfortunately, I lost my lovely camera later on that day, of course the pics we took on the parade have been lost too. But it was a really exciting…Continue

Several days before Easter holiday, I was badly sick and lost my voice. Roommates were back from their trip. Gille (from the US) gave me some herbal called Salvia to gargle and she got recovery from that. I tried once; I think it works to some extent. But I was surprised that she’s also trying this herbal to get better, ‘coz it’s a…Continue

No matter you believe it or not, it’s true that you can find nearly all the Chinese authentic flavoring here in Aalborg, just in general stores! But sometimes you need time to find them, ‘coz they are usually placed differently. Like tofu, in China, you can find…Continue

March has gone, which is really a busy month for me. We had nearly full schedule in courses and projects every week and finally, two courses have gone to the end. It’s a special kind of exams for me, called 24hours-exam. It’s more flexible actually compared with my previous exams, ‘coz within 24hours, the actual working time depends on us students. But I think everyone of us tried hard to make sound answers and spent…Continue

I’m now biking to university instead of taking bus everyday. This makes me feel soooo exciting—I’m in a low carbon life style in Aalborg now, haha~ I’m enjoying the fresh air in the morning and the special landform here—you need to bike up and go down frequently on the way to and from AAU.
Of course, biking up the hill is not easy at…Continue
