Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

Today  I found  that my appointmment with  Bruce  was  postponed so I could  have lunch with Naomi  and her course mates  in Birmingham  after all.


It was  dim sum at  Golden  Pond restaurant  above the Chinese supermarket Day Inn at the Arcadian. I like it - access is on the level from the back of the Arcadian or via a lift from the parking lot. The food was quite acceptable.I can tell that they are real Cantonese people in charge because they were playing Cantonese opera arias in the background and they included Chinese sticky glutinous nin go - the cake the chinese offer to the kitchen god so that he cannot tell on the family because his mouth is stuck together by the sticky cake.


On the way to the restaurant  I passed  some interesting looking hairdressets - I think  I will get my hair done there next time.


Anyway, heres a  video to wish everybody a  Prosperous  and Happy New year!  (in Cantonese)
