The climate in California is perfect because it is just beautiful. I have moved to California for a year. I love the weather here so much. It is cool in the summer, unlike Hong Kong. It's very hot in Hong Kong in summer. I hate the hot weather because it makes me sweat a lot. On the contrary, the weather in California in winter does not as wet as Hong Kong. Because of the wet cool weather in winter in Hong Kong, it makes me freeze. Now, I don't want to go back to Hong Kong again. I enjoy the life in California. [read more...]

we moved to cupertino last year, and miss our previous towns a lot.... cupertino is way too broad-boulevard oriented, strip mall central, and lacking a downtown or central gathering place.
cupertino is somewhat unique as it is reportedly advertised in asia as a desireable place to live, so the demographics are very heavily asian. this makes for a great concentration of good restaurants, and many chinese and other businesses. the schools are impacted by this too, and although top rated among the state, they are very intense, homework-heavy, math-and-science heavy and into tests and extra work, and bi/multi-lingual.
it used to be a big farming/agriculture area. it is hot with little fog. most/all farms have been developed into residential/commercial over the past 10-40 years, which is sad for us life-long bay area residents to have seen..... but, the area's yards host nice citrus trees, apples, peaches, cherries, nut trees, and so on......
it is a great area of top computer (Apple) and other industries, too. this provides good revenue and makes for good city parks and services. the foothills loom to the south-west and provide nice hiking trail, biking, resevoir and winery escapes.[read more...]
