April 5 is Qingming Festival. It’s a very important day as Chinese tradition. It is a day to remember and honor one’s ancestors, National heroes, And people who died undeserved.

I visited MianZhu the day before yesterday.
There were 11,117 people died & 80% houses collapsed at Mianzhu because of 512 WenChuan Earthquake. More than half a million people there lost their homes, Including my parents and neighbors.

New Year Painting is one of the most important Chinese traditions. It’s a kind of Wood Block Painting which past on walls and doors during New Spring Festival.
Mianzhu new year painting is one of the main four new year paintings of China. I love Mianzhu New Year Painting very much. And hope it can recover quickly from the damage of WenChuan Earthquake.
When you see this post, I already back to my second hometown, HanWang.
HanWang was a world famous town now, because it was totally destroyed by WenChuan earthquake on 12 May 2008. Thousands of my neighbors died there.
Tomorrow was the last chance I could enter my parents’ house, which was badly damaged. So I booked the plane back to SiChuan. I couldn’t miss the last chance to say goodbye to my second hometown.
The WenChuan earthquake has left at least 69,159 people dead already. Among all the cities in disaster area， MianZhu is in the worst situation with 11,098 people dead. (Data update to 12:00am 12 June, 2008)
We went to Mianzhu with some relief supplies the day before yesterday. Tried to find if there is still something we can help to those poor villages around.
I arrived Chengdu at May 15, Three days after WenChuan earthquake in China.
Then I started my work as a personal volunteer—— Organized relief supplies supplied by my friends from different cities, And sent them to the urgent need disaster area with the help of different volunteer teams.
It’s the third part of relief supplies from my Guangzhou friends.
Many thanks to Taoist Yunhe from Qingyang Gong Taoist Temple, he helped me send these relief supplies directly to the disaster area such as MianZhu,ShiFang, DuJiangYan, QiangChuan etc.
