Chinese in Australia on Christmas Day

Popularity 1Viewed 1971 times 2013-12-29 08:41 |Personal category:Life Story|System category:Life| Beach, Venus Bay, Christmas Day, Australia

Looks like a beach in China?

It's actually Venus Bay, Victoria.

That's how some Chinese spent their Christmas - on a beach.

The kids are playing with the strong Pacific waves.

The child knows no fear but the fearful mother goes chasing after him.

But what are these people doing?

Well, that's why the Chinese are here on this beach.

They're all digging for pipi.

Even the dog is helping along.

But the strong sun is shining down heavily.

Soon they will all be tan.

Some were happy about their big catch.

Others just enjoy each other company.

The little ones enjoy the reflection on the water.

While others reflect about their future.

Some people are still searching around.

While some have already found.

Regardless of what the future holds, stay strong,

be happy and continue fishing.

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy Horse Year.

'Sigh!' I miss Australian christmases. while I live on a beach in china it's covered in snow right now. A White Christmas is nice once but it's much more fun to have a hot beach christmas!

Hi Bloke, I thought a White Christmas is more natural than a Hot Christmas    Enjoy your snow. I missed the snow in xinjiang. I suppose the other field is always greener.

    So-called "Xinjiang"'s landscapes are extremely varied, ranging from alpine mountains (Mt. Bogoda, Tianshan etc.) clad in a mantle of firs and beeches, to grassland (Jungaria) to the deserts (GObi, Taklimakan) and oasis towns (Turpan, Kumul, Kashgar). You can get the feel of Swiss mountains, Saharan desert and Mongolian steppe.

    juzunme: Yes, fresh snow is pretty but not when it melts. Well, a thing of beauty don't last forever.

    I have been to so-called "Xinjiang" around a dozen times. It is fascinating because it is NOT like China proper; it has less uniformity and a lot more open spaces. The less Chinese it looks, the more authentic it is. Unfortunately, Urumqi is mostly a Chinese city that looks like a replica lifted straight out of the eastern sea board.
