I wonder if this expression came from the Western culture or from China… it seems to me that “Silence is Gold” is most valued and appreciated in Japanese culture.  We prefer silent men over talkative aggressive guys.  Women should silently obey men, without shouting and/or throw things (not my value, just in case).

Anyway, that’s not my point.  I just wanted to make some excuse for my being away from the blog for a few weeks.  I had been a bit sick while being in Korea, been busy with inputting than outputting, have been involved in family chain mails (will be explained later), and so on.  But my fingers started to itch – so here I am!
