gotta go… talk later
When the governmental officials came to inspect, they see me use my MacBook. One said, “wow! nowadays even orphans are using apple!”
在这一周多时间里，从7月24日到今天，每天都过得漫长充实。我们的魔术表演给孤儿们和部分老人带去了各种欢乐与惊奇，同时我们自己也学到了很多经验。每当福利院没有安排活动的时候，我们都会穿插进一些魔术表演。 甚至在有活动安排的时候， 比如去红星公园，红军文化园，电影院，吃火锅，昭华古城等地方游览的时候， 我也会时不时穿插一些随机的魔术让大家在酷暑中感受到一丝凉意。比如孩子们会叫我变出魔术棒帮他们打核桃下来吃，遇见蛇的时候为了保护孩子们我也会变出魔术棒根蛇大战三百回合。
在这段时间里我们与孤儿们一起生活 给他们在福利院的时光添加了魔幻的色彩 同时他们也让我们体验到了照顾孩子的艰辛。 最后 我代表魔术之光再次感谢各位领导对孤儿们的关怀。
Today will be our last day in Guangyuan and tomorrow we will travel to Deyang.
Today morning we had a conclusive discussion-meeting, where all orphans reported their experience and learning, as well as we volunteers having speeches about what we wanna say. The govermental head of the department of living-regulation also joined us.
She (the govermental department head) originally planned to only stay 20 min, but because of influential speech given by the orphans and the attraction of my magic, we made her stay the whole 2 hours and had lunch with us. which is quite an impressive achievement.
Also in this meeting, I recieved the Recognizable Volunteer Honor. I’ll upload the certivicate later.
the department head, she was well-attracted by my magic–of course, everybody is attracted by magic– and request us to stay longer and do something for her. She requested us to do some performance to elders, and that is also part of my intention, so we decide to stay one day longer and leave tomorrow.
She mentioned she can officely help us register magic4hope here in Guangyuan.
One of the orphanage employee sees my MacBook previously,
today he saw my iPad, he asks, did you take it off from your computer?

We just experienced a black-out. I haven’t seen a black-out for a long time since I was in USA.

There is a girl loved me too much. She cried for not able to see me.Then she fell sleep on the couch. I carried her all the way back to her room–she’s actually much more heavier than I expected–and tried to put her into sleep. Then she started to cry in her dream. I had to be, for the first time, an early daddy accompany her the whole time until she sleeps.
Actually, it eventually turned out she was pretending sleeping; now she’s running and jumping. I hope she forgave me for the period of time I was unable to see her.
Uhh!!!! Yesterday when I took shower the door lock got stuck!!! I was trapped in the bathroom! I was almost gonna stay there in the water steam for the whole night!!! and it was cold water shower!!! And when I raise my hand I accidentally touched the light bulb and got burned(now recovered already). Notice I still have water on my hand and water has the highest heat capacity! how many watts does the light bulb has!!! the worst shower!!! Fortunately I climbed out from the window!!! it was the third floor!!! Can’t imagine if I got a accidental trip while climbing!! Fortunately another volunteer was outside to help me!! It would’ve been a tragic if she wasn’t there!!! Because I won’t have my phone while taking shower!!! Then I’ll be completely isolated from outside world! I’m still alive! I didn’t drop to ground state while climbing!
I taught the girls a lot of rubber band magic tricks, and I decide to teach the boys some card tricks. I’ll not teach them any real techniques to prevent them going into gambling.
I magically produce a magic cane and rotate it in the front like those old airplanes. I walk in the front and rotates the cane to clear the spider webs and mosquitos—feels like a superhero.
After I first arrive and did my first performance, those children loved me so much and rushed into my room. They saw my iPad on my bed and started to play fruit ninja—those smart kids… However, I need to talk to the supervisor regarding further planning and must leave. Although I usually don’t let other people use my iPad without mu supervision, I don’t want to break their heart and take it away from them. So I just left and let them play—knowing the fact that they all love to kill fruits and might fight to play.
Delightfully, after I came back after many hours, my iPad peacefully lies on my bed in the state when I left. They didn’t drop it, and nobody stole it—in contrast, not to mention my bike was even locked and got stolen…
Unlike USA, where rich people live in the mountain, here it is the poors—although I still envy they have such an environment like this.
I can now see rubber bands everywhere now! This orphanage is now full of rubber bands!
I’m currently very busy in the orphanage taking care of these awesome children.
I just uploaded some photos for a quick preview.
I don’t have time to write the caption and the story yet.

When I get the time, I’ll write a detailed blog explaining those photos.
