Since we started our Yang Style Taijiquan classes up again, I thought it'd make sense to add a new page on the website about it (http://www.pathsatlanta.org/kung-fu-classes/tai-chi-tai-ji-quan/). #decaturga #taiji #taichi #taijiquan #yangstyle #mandarin #pinyin #wadegiles #atlanta #atlantamartialarts

Juxtaposing a YouTube video of Hollis Frampton's "Ordinary Matter" from 1972 (in which he reads a selection of syllables taken from Wade-Giles' romanization system for the Chinese language) and an IPad with a recording of my parent's teacher (Chinese language) with pronunciation lessons for them. To be honest, I would have never thought that my love for obscure 1970s experimental film and my parent's interests would touch base to such an extent. But they did. At breakfast to be exact. #hollisframpton #ordinarymatter #chinese #wadegiles #pronunciation #newyork #buffalo #allgäu #berlin #romanization #experimentalfilm #1972 #syllabus #kma71 #kma71berlin

When I bored, suddenly I looked at my #bookshelf and found a #book that I haven't finished yet. And I remember that I got myself this book and its next volume at once two years ago, #RomanceoftheThreeKingdoms. There are 2 volumes for this version. I've been a big fan of this epic story since I was a middle schooler and I am a huge fan also of other epic stories from #MingDynasty era, #LegendoftheWhiteSnake and #JourneytotheWest. I never thought that I might find these books so soon, because I never found ones back then. With no hesitation I spent my cash to buy the 2 volumes at once, duh. I was really happy and got back home immediatelly. It turned out, they use #Wadegiles instead of #Pinyin. Alas, I cannot recognize any single characters inside the books. And I never thought they use a different language than #DiaryoftheWimpyKids, it's hard for me to figure out any single word they used describing the stories. English is not my native language. #dagnabit It just made me casted out from the list of "big fan" of this story. Well, at least I'mma try to dig them in now, wish me luck. #SanGuoYanYi #LuoGuanZhong #ThreeKingdoms #DynastyWarriors #Novel #History #Fiction

在我还没纠结清楚到底是厚德载福还是厚德载物的时候,居然神奇般地找到了英译本。。"天行健,君子以自强不息;地势坤,君子以厚德载物" "As Heaven's movement is ever vigorous, so must a gentleman ceaselessly strive along. As Earth is vast and grand, so a gentleman must embrace everything with virtue and tolerance. " #iching #chineseclassics #wadegiles #yijing #classicofchanges #zhouyi
