 Three Cups of Tea
This Haji Ali said to Mortenson: "The first time you share tea with a 
Balti, you are a stranger. The second time you take tea, you are an 
honored guest. The third time you share a cup of tea, you become 
family...".When Greg was climbed k2, he lost the way, he tied,hungry. 
Fortunately, he got Pakistani villagers' rescue, there back to health. 
There for illness in the process, Greg noticed that the village's 84 
children sat in the gate, with a small stick in the mud stokes the 
literacy class.The village too poor to hire teachers spending a dollar a 
day. Greg promise to Pakestan people he will build schools for the 
benefactor. Actually, I like this novel, even some people think some 
parts are not true. For me, promise is very important in life, if you 
promise someone you should achieve it try your best. Greg is admired 
because maybe building one school is easy some people but difficult 
for building many schools. I like all chapters, I will recommend it to 
my friends.

The Traditional Chinese Marriage

As you know, in traditional Chinese culture, marriage decisions were
 made by parents. In the past, if young people is marriageable age, 
parents will entrust a matchmaker to find a appropriate spouse. 
The matchmaker in marriage play the role of a bridge in China. 
The matchmaker will play the role of a middleman since engagement 
to get married. Now the matchmaker in marriage is becoming more 
and more unimportant, modern people are more inclined to express 
affection. In Chinese traditional marriage, the characteristics of the 
spouse should be suitable, including social status, education, age even 
treasure. This one of things that people did in the past that they do not 
do now. There a proverb in China for marriage ,“Love is thing between
 two teenage, Marriage is thing between two family.” That mean if you
 marriage he or her, you have to deal with the relationship between the
 family with each other, if you can't handle, your marriage will be 
struggling. The tradition haven’t changed for many years.
