FROM THE EDITOR

ABOUT US

Hi, First of all, we would like to wish all the mom readers Happy Mother’s Day! You are the best mom in the world. Never doubt that. You deserve all the love from your family. Please take a break, if possible, during May to celebrate your own festival. When you are reading this piece of message, we should be back from Japan already. This is our third time visit to Japan. We are completely in love with this country. And we make sure kids are included in every trip we take. It is harder to have your trips travelling with you. But they bring new meaning to the trips too. I find trips much more fun when kids are around. Have you gone somewhere during the school holiday? I hope you have had a great time together with your kids. Until next time,

Editorial Are you racking your brain for unforgettable birthday party ideas for your kid? Or struggling to come up with something original and next level fun? Maybe even with an educational slant? If so, you can look not further - Reptile Encounters has got all of the bases covered for you! Just in case you don't know us, we're Melbourne's Premier Mobile Zoo and we've been throwing legendary kids' birthday parties all over Victoria for more than a decade! In between parties and events we keep ourselves busy delivering fun-filled, inspirational and highly educational wildlife programs to schools. We've been hosting super duper kids parties at our swanky new HQ in Burwood over last year and we'd just love for your little one and their pals to be next on our list. And how else could they tell their pals that they're on the guestlist next to a Saltwater croc, a Port Jackson shark, a Woma python and heaps more?! But as well as our star-studded cast of beautiful and fascinating creatures and characters from across our island, here at Reptile Encounters we pride ourselves on our super-friendly and switched on wildlife ambassadors. Our ambassadors are mega-passionate about the animals they deal with, but on top of that

they all absolutely love the kids they introduce them to and helping the interaction between them. As seasoned pros with top notch people skills, they're used to dealing with kids from tots to teens and shy to confident, and experts in getting each and every one of them comfortable and interacting. We'd bet there's probably one big question on your mind right now: safety. Well, you can relax in the knowledge that all are shows are 100% safe for kids of all ages, and all our ambassadors are comprehensively trained and boast a wealth of experience. And our purpose built Reptile Encounter HQ in Burwood is just the ultimate party venue! Open both on Saturday and on Sunday and with 1 ½ hour party slots throughout the day, it has space for up to 20 kids. We also have BBQ hire or BYO party food so you don't have to ferry all the regards over to the local KFC! Party slots at 10-11.30am, 12.30-2pm and 34.30pm Open both Saturday and Sunday BYO party food or BBQ Hire available Space for up to 20 children So if you would like to meet some of our amazing critters head to reptileencount ers.com.au or give us a call today on 1300 4 CROCS (27627)!

提笔写这篇文章的时候,我们就快出发去京都了。 这篇文章发表的时候,我们已经回来了。 这是我们第三次去日本,第一次带着女儿在东京和 四周逛了18天,第二次先去东京,再去北海道玩了三 周,这一次,终于决定要去京都和大阪。 不能说刻意,但我应该一直有在缓冲着自己想去京 都的迫切吧。 毕竟与日本一切的缘分,都来源于一张京都的海 报。 那是在五六年前,在一个教室里,不经意间,我抬 头看到了一张海报。海报中间是一座塔,古朴庄重,塔 的四周环绕着郁郁葱葱的树叶,一切是那么鲜艳又久 远,宁静又撞人心弦,在海报的一角,写着“京都”。 在那之前,我是知道日本的,也迷恋过一些日本动 漫,却从没想过去那里看看。当时在国内,离日本那么 近,却觉得那不过就是一个弹丸之地,拥挤现代化,而 且还因为一些偏见,觉得去日本旅游的人有些肤浅。 现在才知道,是我肤浅了。 日本旅游种种的好,不必我在这里赘述。“安利” 给别人这种事情,总是一厢情愿多些,想去的人不必 “安利”自然会去,不想去的人怎么劝说都不会改变主 意,所以又何必强加自己的喜恶在别人身上。去了这么 两次,我是喜欢上日本了。但前两次,一直不敢去关 西。去了关西,就一定要去京都。自从看了那张海报, 在阅读时我留意了京都的前世今生,对它,已早是心向 往之。就像很多年前,我对杭州西湖的执念一般。那时 的杭州行,没让我失望。但之后更多的旅游,却总是失 望大于希望。旅游化的画蛇添足太多了,很多的古典城 市,多朝古都,都充斥着烦躁,浮夸和铜臭味。我怕, 怕小唐朝——京都,也会如此。 这次终于要踏上寻唐之旅。我们文化的巅峰啊,虽 然在故土已经找不到踪迹,但在那个小岛,竟然被仿造 出来了,而且人们坚守下来了。我想去走走那些古道, 看看树林里的古庙,听听风听过庭院。 能否寻到唐朝?我也不敢肯定。但其实,又有什么 关西。

公元794年到公元1868年东京奠都为止,京都一直都是日本的首都。平安京 在建设时仿照唐都长安和东都洛阳建设,西侧称长安(右京),东侧称洛 阳(左京),后右京逐渐废弃,所以日本京都又别称“洛阳”。 唐诗“南 朝四百八十寺,多少楼台烟雨中”,在今日,惟京都可以写照。我们于古 代风景的形象化,实有太多来自唐诗。许多古时设施或对象,他处早不 存,京都亦多见。且说一件,柴扉。王维诗中的“日暮掩柴扉”、“倚杖 候荆扉”、“倚仗柴门外”在此极易瞩目。当然,京都原是一个花城。什 么“落花时节又逢君”,什么“去年花里逢君别,今日花开又一年”,再 就是“花近高楼伤客心,万方多难此登临”或“花径不曾缘客扫”等等诸 多“花景”,俱皆极合于京都,又皆极美矣。——节选舒国治《城说》 请你为下面这座古庙图填上你心中的唐之韵色吧!
