    Hi Feng,

    I really like your collection of English expressions! I am a non-native speaker myself and for some strange reason I do prefer to write in English sometimes, surely because I love the language, but also because it gives me distance to what I’m writing about. Your collection is like a mystery forest of things familiar and new, thanks!

    “like water off a duck’s back” – I think you haven’t got that one yet…

    Feng, I came across your blog when searching for an anecdote of the Two and Half Man today. English is my second language too. This is cool. Keep going. Minax

  4. Thanks for publishing about this. There’s a lot of solid tech info on the internet. You’ve got a lot of that info here on your web site. I’m impressed – I try to keep a couple blogs reasonably on-going, but it’s a struggle sometimes. You’ve done a big job with this one. How do you do it?
