A Date with Luyu – Cui Yongyuan 2
Lu Yu: Did you buy these from America?
Cui Yongyuan: Yes, I really want them to see and try these things themselves. I want everyone to hear it in person to experience the sound from the aged things.
Cui Yongyuan: We have thousands of kinds of old textbooks, including those from the Qing Dynasty, the Ming Dynasty and all ages. This is a book published in the year of 1928.
Lu Yu: Wow, it’s Beijing.
Cui Yongyuan: It is wonderful! It is actually an introduction of entire China. You can see that the book was quite well made at that time.
Lu Yu: It was great!
Cui Yongyuan: It was!
Cui Yongyuan: I learnt this song from my daughter when she was playing the piano at the age of four.
Lu Yu: What’s her level?
Cui Yongyuan: She quit it long ago.
Lu Yu: Quit?
Cui Yongyuan: Yes.
Cui Yongyuan: Look at this piano, it can be played automatically by using the blower down there.
Cui Yongyuan: This is the poster of the film Heart made in 1925 and this is the introduction.
Cui Yongyuan: This is the film we made for them, STORY OF MOVIE, you can sit here and watch it.

Is Mr. Shu Shi there?
