My god daughter Connie 


Life in China: I was born in Chengdu, a beautiful city in southwest China. At the age of 18, I left my hometown and went to Beijing.


When I was a little girl

My mum's 40 Birthday

My classmates in Shenpingjie Primary School(1988)

The whole family of 94-1 at Yulin High School before our graduation, and also before the National College Entrance Exams. Seems not everyone can smile while preparing the exams.

Our graduation party in front of the water fall at Yingchanggou near Chengdu. Another small group far away from us on the right side of the picture are also our classmates :)

A wonderful winter trip when I revisit my old friends in my hometown, especially with such a COOL snowboy!

The whole family of J4 Computer Science Department at Tsinghua University.

Sydney, Australia: Trip to Australia is enjoyable. Sydney is a visitor friendly city.

I prefer to feeding Kagaroos instead of Ostrich in Sydney. Unfortunately, the following day in a banquet, the food they are serving is KANGAROO MEAT! :(

Yes, it is a real Koala! Too cute to be real, right? :)

Tampre, Finland: SIGIR 2002

Tampere is a small city in Finland with a feeling of a town.

Paris, France: A city of romance, a city of art, a city of history, and a city of imaginations, Paris is one of the most beautiful city in the world.

Muse du Louvre is one of the greatest art in the world.

Experience the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci from Mona Lisa's Smile.

Canada: I visited Canada twice in the past two years. The first time I drived to Toronto with Wei, and the second time I took a flight and landed in Vancouver. The feeling is different.

Niagara Fall is not as big as me :)
