Remember the play we wrote together?

About the man who spent his life

searching for that kingdom under the sea?

That Utopia he was so sure

he could bring his people to?

Do you still think that world exists?

If he were to give up the search now

would it mean that he had lived for nothing?

To light up this beautiful city

And share it with the world

Guided only by this river of life

Together we will live our dreams.

My home

is where I keep my joy and sorrow

With hope, our dreams will soar.

My home, has given me

a pair of wings.

No matter where I am

I will always have my home.

En, are you ready?

Yeah, wait. I'm changing.




Why did you lock the door?


I said wait! I am changing!

Why did you lock the door?

I was changing.

But you were alone at home!

I'm just used to locking it.

Are you bringing all of this?

No, we can leave those in the store room.

Don't forget to take the curtains down.

Use them to cover the furniture in the living room.

It's going to get dusty

when they start the drilling.

And the lamp too, thanks.

Next to the mirror please.

Are you ready to go?

You can work on it with Ma.

The puzzle of the kittens is short of one piece.

This is where we hold our daily morning exercise.

Sometimes we have volunteers from associations

or schools who would come and perform.

Let me show you our other room.

This is our other physiotherapy room.

The ward on the other side is for male residents.

There's another male ward on the fourth floor.

The female wards are on the third and fifth floors.

Do you have mixed wards?

For married couples

we usually recommend private rooms.

But these requests are quite rare

and the rooms are currently not available.

We have a lovely view here.

It looks even better on the fifth floor.

Do you know how to use the camera?

Come, come to Grandpa.

Do you know how?
