A few weeks ago, Alice shared with us the pictures that she took in the Shanghai Museum. There are old things and there are also plenty of new things in Shanghai, one of the most populous cities in the world. Huangpu River, a river that is 400 meters wide and 9 meters deep, cuts through the city of Shanghai, dividing it into the east and west sections of the city.

Found On The Net: A Giant Cat Statue
In the northern part of Taiwan, there is a village that has lots of stray cats. Village people take care of the stray cats; photographers and newspaper reporters would go and document the lives of these stray cats. This village thus being nicknamed the "Cat Village" and became a point of tourist attraction.
Among the stray cats, four most popular ones were nicknamed the "Four Kings". Of the four Kings, "Black Nose" was the most popular one. Recently "Black Nose" passed away.
To celebrate Black Nose's life and to increase tourism, a 6-foot statue was unveiled at the train station on September 12, 2010.

Betty also loves to make and sell Angora hats. Just in the last two weeks, she sold six of them. So she is now also in the "hat mode" to restock her hat inventory.
Try it, it's really fun to make hats.
