Earth Day every day

1. I went to join Tzu Chi Buddhist organization for street cleaning event for Earth Day.

2. Many booths to celebrate Earth Day in St Louis, Missouri.

I got a free hug from a pretty girl and some free things from the booths.

3. Steve and I had been saving coins to donate. Guess how much?

Saying & Doing

The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn't being said.

This is a sentence from the slip in a fortune cookie. 
What is a fortune cookie? 
Most Chinese restaurants here give you a fortune cookie with the bill. 
I read an article that said, according to their strategy, customers would give bigger tips because of it. 
The cookie has a paper slip inside, but the content is different from each manufacturer. Some have Chinese words to learn. Some have a group of numbers for lottery and a saying...
這是從fortune cookie內的字條。
什麼是fortune cookie
這裡的Chinese restaurants都會在賬單盤上隨賬單附著fortune cookie
每個fortune cookie內都夾有一字條,內容各類,有些是教簡單中文字及拼音,有些是一組的lottery 號碼及一句詞語。。

Some Chinese restaurants use paper food packaging for carry out or leftovers; that's the kind I prefer. However, in terms of helping our environment, the best way is to bring our own food container with us! 
I haven't seen anyone here doing this yet. I should start to do it.
我喜歡有些Chinese restaurants的食物包裝是紙皮的,不過最環保的方式,還不如自己帶食物盒吧!
