I am from Sri Lanka, a country that was under the British empire for 150 years and we speak English everywhere in our homeland. When I came to China five years ago, everything around me was in Chinese. My eyes were tired of seeing the complex letters around me. However, I saw an English newspaper in our dormitory. It was China Daily. I turned several pages and suddenly found an English window into this unknown and to-be-explored nation. It was the beginning of my friendship with China Daily.
And gradually I got to know that China Daily has a blog section, which allows us to contribute our ideas. I started writing blogs on it and slowly built a group of readers who keep in touch with me on WeChat. Every minute I spend on this newspaper and also the website is interesting. I visit the website every day and occasionally read the newspaper from the dormitory office when I go there.
China Daily is like a friend who stays with me in every mood in my life. If I am happy, I can write a blog and if I am sad, I can enjoy what others have said and let my bad feelings go away. We all love China Daily and we stay in touch every day.
Good Luck, my friend. It is 35 years. You are a big man now.
