Private interests

I like reading history books and ancient Chinese essays. Three of my favorite essays are <谏逐客书> by Si Li in the Qin dynasty, <滕王阁序> by Bo Wang in the Tang dynasty, and <为徐敬业讨武曌檄> by Binwang Luo in Tang (Zhou) dynasty. I am not a very humorous person but I like to watch comedy (TV shows and films). Visiting ancient buildings and ruins is also involved in my interests.
