Opera My Food :)

Opera My Food :)

Always love classic, since I loaded up my list of some my favorite English and Chinese singers why not I just complete whole selections with some of my favorite classical opera singers, all of them cost me so much time and energy online. There are many great classical opera music, folk, blues, jazz and pop rock... I somehow feel the old music are really the best even the my Mandarin song choice. Very thankful to the divas and Amazon that now I can download the song I like not buying the whole album that would be too much for a poor fan.

Soccer Practice Night vs Polar Vortex

Last night was so cold, as usual I practiced half hour soccer in my weight vest and ankle weight, I put a scarf on my face to block the cold wind.
I was happy that I could do it, so I took a picture of my ball and cons, and a daily newspaper as record.
