5 April 2010 12 Comments

Yeah, I finally back to the internet world. Miss you so much my dear friends!
Many things happened in these four months, But I really want share you some traditional chinese paintings about (四川民俗) first, which I found at an old tea-house of .

JiGongChe is also called MuNiuLiuMa(木牛流马). It’s invented by ZhuGeLiang(诸葛亮) during the Three Kingdoms Time(三国时期). It’s a kind of very useful vehicle specially for the hilly landform of Sichuan. People use it carry all kinds of heavy things, even use it as a wedding car!
I could see JiGongChe somewhere in Sichuan when I was a little child, But you can only see them in museum now.

Sounding the night watches(打更)
In the archaic days when there were no watches, The night clock beelmen would patrol the streets at night and announce the watches. We can learn how they work from some Chinese opera.

Looks like Tanghulu (冰糖葫芦)? No, It’s a kind of traditional snack Of Sichuan named TangYouGuoZi. It’s made from sticky rice and loved by chirdren. Yeah, It also has more than one thousands years’ history! QingShiQiao (青石桥) street of Chengdu is the most famous place to enjoy them.

Sugar painting(倒糖饼)
Chengdu Sugar Painting is a kind of important Non-Material Culture Heritage. I had tried to make it slinkingly at home and wasted a lot of sugar when I was a little girl. Yeah, It’s difficult to learn!

Tea & Long Men Zhen (喝茶&摆龙门阵)
As we know, You can find everywhere in Sichuan. People there love to enjoy tea and Long Men Zhen (龙门阵) at . Long Men Zhen’s original meaning was a kind of battle array which invented by a famous general named Xue Ren Gui (薛仁贵) in Tang dynasty. But Sichuan people use it to describe how dramatic the chat is. Yeah, Everybody there is a great story teller!
