掩耳盗铃 (yǎn ěr dào líng)
Learn Chinese - Chinese Idiom

altIn the Spring and Autumn period (chūn qiū 春秋时期,770-476 BC), a thief had stolen a bell and intended to carry it away on his back, but the bell was too bulky and heavy to be carried, so he tried to break it into pieces with a hammer to make it easier for carrying. On his first hit, however, the bell made a loud noise. He thus feared that the ringing sound might be heard by someone, who would come to rob him of his bell. His fright made him plug his own ears, while hitting the bell with the hammer. The bell sound was, nevertheless, audible to others and therefore to stuff his ears for the purpose of stealing a bell was a stupid action it is as foolish as burying one's head in the sand.

LANGUAGE IS THE GYMNASTICS OF THE MIND
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China
By Cool Han

If one’s life is a novel, Vicky has just started her first few chapters.

It was a breezy spring afternoon in Beijing, when the twenty-one-year approached me with a smile. She wore a dark brown jacket, black sweater, black skirt and black stockings. Is that the fashion of this season? I wondered.

Her hair is the color of gold but her roots are dark. A typical European girl should be like that, I believe. When she laughed a series of silver bells tenderly slipped out of her mouth: “Hey I’m Vicky, but you already know that.” Yes, thanks to today’s instant communication technology, we arranged everything through MSN before we met.

We went through buildings, gardens, blocks, and lobbies before we reached a tiny bar inside her school. An intricate maze for me is a piece of cake for her.

In no time, we were eating ice cream and chatting like old friends, though it was our first meeting. She was a bit shy, but her eyes told me that she was calm, warm and confident.

Thanks to WorldFriends Networks … we are thrilled and overjoyed.
Vic and Elizabeth

International MarriageOn October. 9th, 2003, a young lady through your services e-mail me, calling herself Pinky. We've e-mail through about April and then she called me and we have been talking on the phone ever since. I travel to HongKong to meet her and her family and friends which at that time I asked her to be my wife and to live with me here in the U.S. We are now in the process of a Finacee Visa, which will take about 4-6 months. Hopefully some time in February. or March of 2005, we will be married. I love this woman with all my heart and though I was quite content with my life before I ever met her. Now I wonder how I can live without her. Without WorldFriends Networks this might have never happened.
