It's my birthday today. 😄, I'm 28 now. Ah, I feel quite happy. There are so many things I want to do and learn and I have been getting better at focusing on them. 🤓📚💪, I will do my best to keep improving myself and wish everyone the best. ✨
On my birthday last year I read Tanizaki's A Portrait of Shunkin, one of my favourite stories, and posted an excerpt from it. Today I read his A Night in Qinhuai and would like to share a little part from that. ✨
