iPhone Updates

It was 冬至 (Winter Solstice Festival) a few nights ago
Usually in my culture, families would gather
and have 湯圓 (glutinous rice balls) after a reunion dinner
The festival is a reminder that one is a year older and should behave better

Zin's mum says that my Tony Leung Goatee
makes me look less handsome..
