(From Sina) The ongoing event “Creativity for a nursing home” happening in Henan province has been transformed into a creativity competition with the theme of Panda. Recently, the Henan Museum of Art has become the holy land of creativity and imagination where countless young people and adults came to “worship”. Other than fighting to read the essay “My dad is a panda” written by a 12 year old girl, which already sold for 100,000 yuan, audiences were also stunned by some other panda arts. A replica sculpture of Venus de Mio in the center of the museum became the hot spot, not because people haven’t seen a statue of Venus de Mio before, it was the special material used: giant panda poop!

Kids from the home of the Giant Pandas – Sichuan Province led by famous sculptor Mr. Zhu Cheng, replicated this world famous sculpture with panda dung.

Audiences from time to time leaned closer to the sculpture to smell the yellow statue of Venus. Some claimed that it smelled really good.

The wonderful work also attracted great interest of collectors, after purchasing a little girl’s essay for 100,000 yuan, world-class collector Uli Sigg also had a strong interest of this Chinese Venus. A later report by Sina said the Swiss collector Uli Sigg who owns the largest collection of contemporary Chinese art purchased for 300,000 yuan.

The art charity event attracted enthusiastic participation of more than 15,000 young people all over the country. The creative materials they have handed over so far generated over 1 million yuan of funds. In Henan, our preliminary estimate of housing cost was 600 yuan per square meter. So far we can at least use the money to build a house over 1000 square meter for the elders.

Should we thank the Pandas, for providing its image free of charge, and its droppings?

我爸就是一只熊猫
作者:张霖彤(12岁)郑州市一八联合国际学校
人生有黑白两面,社会也是有黑白两面的,那么我的爸爸呢?呵呵,他就是一只熊猫,也有着黑白两面。
我的爸爸是一个45岁的中年帅男人,他浑身散发着一种成熟的感觉,更是一个大丈夫气概的人,他有时细心得像个女人,有时粗旷得比男人还男人,我就喜欢这个样子的爸爸。
他是一个情绪多变化的人,特别是在喝醉酒后。人活在世上,谁还没有点忧愁?爸爸在忧愁时总爱喝点小酒。在客厅里,只见爸爸孤独的身影,他每次只喝一点,但总因为酒量不行,而醉。爸爸醉后,显得很可爱,脸像红透了的苹果一样,有时傻傻地笑,有时默默地流泪,谁曾知道他的艰辛?
喝醉后的爸爸,总爱拉着我说话儿,还时不时骂我:小傻蛋,笨妞,句句之间都体现着对我的爱。你们别以为,喝醉后的爸爸没什么变化,他变化可大着呢!不喝酒的时候,理性,脾气温和可善,但他一旦喝醉,脾气便很不好,可以用凶来形容。
有一次,因为我,爸爸喝酒了,醉得很厉害,他也哭了,晶莹的泪珠滴下来,仿佛滴在我的心头,爸爸还不是因为我?我上前去安慰他,他却手一挥,张着嘴大叫:“别管我!!”甚至不让我靠近。我明白爸爸,他是一家人的顶梁柱,肩负着重大的责任,伤心不想在平时体现出来,却在酒后吐出。我上着那么贵的学校,让家里开支紧张,这可让爸爸怎么办?但我就是受不了他的脾气,出口伤人!!有时候,真想回嘴,但一想他是我爸爸,便忍住了。
仔细想想,爸爸那些小毛病算什么,他为我付出了那么多,我难道就只记住他的坏,不记着他的好吗?
妈妈为了让我上好学校,更好地学习,从小学开始边去外地工作,只有节假日和寒暑假才能回来,我爱妈妈,也想妈妈,妈妈更爱我,也更想我。妈妈去外地是为了我,我不能把心思放在想妈妈上,要好好学习,才是对妈妈的回报。于是,我又开始努力地学习了。
爸爸承担了照顾我的重大任务,他从来不怨,总是细心地呵护我,把我照顾得无微不至,他这样子照顾我,还怎么工作呀!没办法,爸爸就把工作辞了,只有在空闲的时候,做点小生意。
每一次,都是我吃香喷喷的新饭,爸爸吃剩饭。我生病了,爸爸急得跳墙,赶忙背我上医院,累得满头大汗也不叫苦。而他生病了,一声不吭,默默干自己的事。我去劝说,爸爸去医院看看,开点儿药,好得快!爸爸总说,不用,一会就好!我不再说什么,但泪早已流了下来,爸爸,你对我的付出,我一定会加倍回报的。
上小学期间,爸爸的任务很重。我上的是小学午托班,中午饭在学校吃,爸爸总是将早饭和晚饭做得很丰富,而午饭呢?或许是一个菜,一碗汤……我问爸爸:“爸爸,你午饭都吃什么呀?为什么没见你剩饭!”爸爸总是笑着说:“爸爸吃得可好了,我饭量大!”我听了,眼睛一酸,爸爸呀,女儿知道你吃得不好呀!
就这样,爸爸起早贪黑地照顾我,早上四五点就起床,凌晨一两点还没睡!等我早上去学校了,爸爸孤零零地一个人,回到家里冷冰冰的家感受不到一点点温暖,即使这样,爸爸依旧会做点儿生意来补贴家用。休息了,给妈妈打个电话,写封信,报个平安!
六年过去了,我都已经上初一了,上了个好学校,学费也贵了,一年两万多!这么贵的学费,爸爸妈妈依旧咬着牙让我上!爸爸妈妈你们放心,我会挣大钱孝敬你们的!!
这就是我的爸爸,他是有些毛病,但,他为我做的一切,早就将那些毛病对我的影响铲除,我想说:爸,谢谢你!你真是一只伟大的“熊猫”!

My dad is a panda

By Zhang Lintong  (age: 12) One Eight United International School, Zhengzhou

Life has two sides, black and white; society also has black and white two sides, how about my dad? Hehe, he is a Panda, also is black and white.

My dad is a 45-year-old mid-aged good looking man. His whole body exudes a sense of maturity and sprit of a true man. Sometimes he is as attentive as a woman sometimes he is more rugged than men. I just like this kind of dad.

His mood changes often, especially after drinking. Living in this world, who doesn’t have sorrow? Dad always likes to drink when he is down. In the living room, watching my dad’s lonely figure, he only drinks very little each time, but because of low tolerance he always gets drunk. Dad is very cute when he is drunk, his face is like a red apple, sometimes silly laughs, and sometimes sheds tears in silence, who knows his hardships?

Drunken dad loves to talks to me, sometimes yells at me: little dummy, dumb girl, each word shows his love to me. Don’t you think there is no change when my dad gets drunk, there is a huge difference! When he is sober, he is rational and nice, but when his drunk, he has very bad temper, can be described as fierce.

Once, because of me, dad drank, and was very drunk. He also cried. The tears dripping down like they dropped on my heart, is it because of me? I went up to him to comfort him, but he waved his hand and opened his mouth to shout at me, “Leave me!!” not letting me near. I know my dad, he is the backbone of the family, shouldering great responsibility. His does not show his sadness normally, only after drinking. I am going to a very expensive school and the spending at home is very tight, what should my dad do? But I still cannot stand his bad temper, it hurts!! Sometimes, I want to talk back, but I control myself when I think about he is my dad. Thinking about it carefully, so what dad has these little problems, he sacrificed so much for me, how can I only remember his bad but not his good?

In order for me to go to a good school, for better learning, mom started working out of town since when I was little. She only comes back in the holidays and summer vacations. I love my mom, miss my mom, and mom loves me more misses me more. She works outside is for me, I cannot concentrate on missing my mom, I must do well in school, to repay my mother. So then I started to study really hard.

My dad assumed the important task of taking care of me, he never complained, always carefully nurturing me and take care of me in every possible way. How can he work when he takes care of me is well? My dad quit his job, and now only does a little business on the side.

Every time, when I eat the delicious food my dad eats leftover. When I am sick, my dad is so anxious and rushes me to the hospital on his back. When his is sick, he never makes a noise, just quietly does his own things. I go up to him to persuade him to go to the hospital, to get some medicine to get better faster. Dad always says, no, I will be fine! I stopped persuading him but my tears have already streamed down. Dad, I will repay what you have done for me.

During my elementary school, dad has many tasks. I eat lunch at school, so my dad always makes good breakfast and dinner. But what about lunch? Only one dish or one soup… I asked my dad, “dad, what do you eat for lunch? How come there are no leftovers?” Dad always laughs, “Dad eats really well, and dad has a huge appetite.” I wanted to cry when I heard that, daughter knows you don’t eat well!

Just like that, dad takes care of me day and night, gets up 4 or 5 in the morning and sleeps at 1 or 2! Waiting till I got o school, dad is alone at home and feels no warmth of a family. Even so, dad will still do some business on the side to support the family. During break, he calls my mom and writes her letters, tells her we are all safe.

Six years has passed, I am already in the first grade of middle school, in a good school. Fees are also expensive, over twenty thousand a year! Mom and dad grinding their teeth to support me, I promise I will make money to honor you!!

This is my dad, he has some problems, but, everything he does for me already eradicated all those problems for me, I want to say, Dad thank you! You are really a great “panda”!

  7. Carl says:

    Considering panda only digest 20% of the bambo they eat, which is 99% of all that they eat, the sculpture would probably more like plywood than poop.

  17. Mr_HK says:

    Your ass ain’t Korean, because you live in the US and hold a US passport, so stop trying to pretend to be Korean!

    I bet when you’re in Korea visiting, you tell the Koreans girl, “I’m American, I can’t read Korean properly and I have an accent in my Korean”

    Then the girls go, “I love you American accent in your broken Korean” And that’s when you get a hard on and think USA!!!

    You shouldn’t be called Korean_Guy, you should be called “The Jester of Chinahush, or simply, the “Chinese’s Jester.” :D

    Now TAP SUM BONG!!!

  25. Voice of China says:

    Well being called “Korean_guy” in itself is derogatory since you South Koreans are of even lower status than dogs.

    Being called anything other than Korean is a step up. Have fun trolling Mike Kimchi.

  26. STFU Kimchi says:
