Jogging again.


我的Bryton Amis S430沒電了,我只能從手機照片的時間估計。距離應該跟之前都相同,大約是九公里。

Start time: 20:49:15
End time:  22:12:04
Total time: 1:22:49

我的跑步鞋改成Sketcher Resistance Runner。因為氣墊比較厚,剛開始不太習慣,感覺像是在踩高蹺。有比較舒服,尤其是開始、結束時走路的時候。

這張封面照片有三個驚喜:#Taiwan #Taipei

1. 小鳥(Black Drongo,大卷尾)攻擊大鳥(Crested Serpent Eagle,大冠鷲),而且瞬間降落在大鳥身上。
2. 畫面中一共有三個動物。(詳於內文)
3. 這是在 台北 拍攝的 by Mr. Liu Chia-Pin

"The Girl from Ipanema", feel the Bossa Nova

Enjoy her sweet voice!

As for the visual performance and her expressions, maybe she did not look professional. I was reminded by my friend (thank you, Orrin!) that she at that time had just begun to sing to the public. She was not a professional singer at all before this song.
On Wikipedia: The Girl from Ipanema
"Garota de Ipanema" ("The Girl from Ipanema") is a Brazilian bossa nova jazz song. It was a worldwide hit in the mid-1960s and won a Grammy for Record of the Year in 1965. ...
During a recording session in New York with João Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Stan Getz, the idea of cutting an English-language version came up. Norman Gimbel wrote the English lyrics. João's wife, Astrud Gilberto, was the only one of the Brazilians who could speak English well and was chosen to sing. Her voice, without trained singer mannerisms, proved a perfect fit for the song. Ethel Ennis and Nat King Cole have also both recorded the song.
