Cleaning is healing
虞左俊 2020-5-17 08:39
Almost 11 years ago, I drove my son to the airport. He was eager to start his college life, and couldn’t wait to fly solo. He said goodbye to me quickly, and I drove home feeling nothing but sadness. Once I was home, I started cleaning. As my body became exhausted, I began to feel bett ...

檀香山的水管工(plumber)
热度 1 虞左俊 2019-11-21 16:34
买房子,除了成为房(贷)奴,还是成为房(维修)奴。所以,与其说我是“房子的主人”,不如说我是“房奴”。房奴离不开水管工。 一般人买房子需要银行贷款。银行需要知道值不值得“冒这个险”,就调查这、那的,包括调查房子的“质量”。我当时对这两房两厕,印象非常差:脏、旧。(原来的主人是日本 ...

科普:如何利用“国际日期变更线”过两次2019年元旦
虞左俊 2019-1-3 06:33
其实,这,非常容易。比如说:找一趟在北京时间2019年1月1日凌晨起飞的航班,往东飞,着落在北太平洋中的夏威夷群岛。然后,冲到威基基海滩,观看2018年的最后一次落日。如果还没有睡意,接着看烟火、等待当地的2019年1月1日到来的爆竹声。 我,一不小心,过了两次New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day!(另 ...

Getting driver’s license renewed in Honolulu can be a pain
虞左俊 2018-3-4 12:39
No need to read unless you need to renew your driver's license in Honolulu. Each driver in Honolulu receives a postcard from the city and county about what he needs to bring (3-4 documents to prove you are a legal resident) to get his license renewed. You know it’s going to take more ti ...

Final days of some old people in Hawaii
虞左俊 2017-6-5 15:42
(有空时翻译成中文) Final days of some old people in Hawaii C’s mom was as graceful as anyone I have ever met, who had her hair done and dressed in muumuu when inviting people to dine out. We were fortunate to join her family on all major US holidays. Before that, I never celebrate ...

向夏威夷的蓝领男士致敬!
虞左俊 2015-5-12 03:27
对不起,还是用英文比较尽义。 Spalling repair is necessary pain, to remove loose concrete from an old apartment building. When I saw the notice last Thursday afternoon about the workmen moving to the floor below me, I was so happy: my floor is DONE (for now). So, I stayed at home on ...

May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii (夏威夷也庆祝五一)
虞左俊 2015-5-3 04:54
终于又在檀香山过“五一”了,又可以享受Lei Day了。 在微信上看到国内过“五一”非常热闹。至少,微信群里非常热闹。跟中国的“五一”不一样,这里的上班族依然得上班。我本来有点担心停车,事实上我过虑了。这是第88届May Day庆祝活动,檀香山的市长和很多他的虾兵蟹将都到场了。这,好像有点不公平:市政府不放 ...
